Be sure to plan the perfect bachelorette party

Leave a comment

If you are the person in charge of the bachelorette party, you will definitely want to make this a memorable event – both for the bride and for the other guests as well. How do you do it? How do you plan the perfect bachelorette party? Here are some tips you might want to keep in mind:


  • Decide who plans the party. The bachelorette party is a lot less formal than the other pre-wedding events, so virtually anyone can plan it. From coworkers to the Maid of Honor, anyone close to the bride can plan this event. Even more, it is not uncommon for more of the bride’s friends to chip in and plan the party for her.
  • Start planning as soon as possible. Really do this – although it may not be very formal, this is an important pre-wedding event and you should make sure everything is in order for the party date. From location to food, all of the event’s elements should be very well organized, so that everyone has a great time.
  • Think of the guest list, date, and invitations. In general, it is not mandatory that the bachelorette party guests are invited to the wedding too (unlike in the case of a bridal shower, for example). Furthermore, the invitations don’t have to be very formal either (you can even make them with the help of a software). What you do want to be very careful with is the bachelorette party date. Whatever you do, do NOT set it the night before the actual wedding – the bride needs a good night’s sleep then, so it’s better to set the bachelorette party a few days before the wedding date.

Your wedding photography style should represent you

Leave a comment

Your wedding photos will help you keep the memories alive. Years after your wedding, you will want to look at these pictures and candidly remember how amazing the day was, how many emotions flew through your body and how great your guests felt at your big event.

Of course, your wedding photography style should represent you – but what are some of the most popular styles of the moment? We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Dark and modern. This photography style captures emotions in the same way film captures imagery. The colors used in this style are usually darker and moodier, but this gives an interesting and artistic perspective over the entire wedding day, making your photos look truly unique.
  • Artistic or photojournalistic. Although different in terms of details, the artistic and photojournalistic styles are very popular for a good reason: they go beyond capturing the “planned” moments. They also capture the small accidents, the genuine smiles, the tears and the wonderful vibes in the air – which makes them perfect for a couple who is all about honesty and rawness.
  • If you are the kind of couple who loves adventure and fun, this style will definitely represent you. Ask your photographer to capture you as you do bungee jumping or simply jump into a lake. Shoot wedding photos that are filled with energy, adventure and good vibes – you will really appreciate the wonderful way these pictures capture your young, fearless spirit!

Dress your groom and his groomsmen to perfection

Leave a comment

Your wedding is such a huge, important and life-changing event – and while the traditional focus tends to put the spotlight on the bride and her ladies, the truth is that the groom and his groomsmen will be just as excited about the upcoming Big Day.

How to make sure you dress your groom and his guys to perfection? We have some tips to help you decide on the very best outfit for them – so read on and find your inspiration.


  • Remember to establish the level of formality. Both the groom and the groomsmen will have to dress according to the formality of your wedding: black-tie (tuxedoes), formal (dark-colored suits), semi-formal (suits made from casual fabrics) or casual (not jeans, but slacks, shirts, ties, and so on).
  • Add a little bit of liveliness to their attires. If you have chosen a mono-colored type of suit for your groom and his groomsmen, add a bit of color into the mix to make them look more stylish. Don’t go over the top, though – stick to smaller accessories in colors that coordinate with the general scheme of the wedding (e.g. bow-ties, socks, pocket squares, and so on).
  • Looking for a funkier, quirkier idea for your groom and groomsmen’s attires? Why not accessorize them with stylish suspenders? They are very trendy right now and they work really great with casual weddings (especially rustic-chic and outdoor weddings in general).

Create beauty for your wedding with low centerpieces

Leave a comment

Your wedding centerpieces are hugely important for the ambiance you create at your Big Day. And while large, tall, over-the-top centerpieces may have been all the rage until not very long ago, the truth is that shorter centerpieces are also making their way back into the wedding world trends.

How to create beauty for your wedding with low centerpieces? Here are some wonderful ideas you will surely love:


  • Elegantly lined up. Low centerpieces can be incredibly elegant, especially if you opt for a classic bloom (such as hydrangeas, roses or peonies). Bring them in small bouquets in pretty vases (or unusual containers, such as small buckets in the case of a rustic wedding) – they will look fantastic!
  • Gloomy and sophisticated. Looking for wedding centerpiece ideas that are dark, sophisticated and unique? Bring together dark wine, soft pink, white and eggplant-colored blooms for wedding centerpieces everyone will absolutely love. This idea is just perfect for a fall wedding!
  • Greenery runners. You don’t have to stick to the traditional centerpieces’ shape if you don’t want to. In fact, greenery and flowery runners are very popular these days and they work fantastically well with raw, nature-inspired, garden and rustic-chic weddings!
  • Fruity and green. Want to “upgrade” the simple greenery runner? Scatter some seasonal fruit here and there along the greenery runner – it will not only look more than appetizing, but it will also be the perfect complement for a unique fall wedding!

Get the most out of your wedding flowers

Leave a comment

Your wedding flowers should be expressive and filled with personality! They should speak about your love story, wedding style and personal aesthetics more than anything else at your wedding – so how do you make sure you choose the very best flowers? We have some trends and tips for you – so read on, find out more and inspire yourself.


  • So many colors, and you can combine them however you want! That’s right, there are no rules when it comes to combining the colors for your wedding flowers – the more unusual your palette is, the more special the wedding will look. Be creative! As long as what you come up with looks great, everyone will definitely love it!
  • Plenty of blooms to choose from too! The best news about modern wedding flowers is that you can actually choose from a huge variety of blooms. Elegant calla lilies, romantic peonies, classy roses, lush ranunculi and quirky succulents – they can all be included in your wedding flower arrangements. You would be surprised of how amazing these can look!
  • Accessorize yourself with flowers. Looking for a truly special way to make yourself feel absolutely stunning as you walk down the aisle? A flower crown can definitely do this for you! Large or small, lush or delicate, flower crowns are still very popular – so you will surely love the idea of wearing one as a bride.
  • Forget about perfection. Settle for wilderness instead! Wedding flower arrangements are becoming more and more imperfect, closer to nature and wilder – and this is something you will absolutely love if you are an unconventional bride. From mismatched wedding centerpieces to asymmetrical arrangements, there’s something for every type of wedding out there!

Schedule these beauty appointments before the big day

Leave a comment

Considering how unique your entire wedding day is, you will definitely want to look at your very best. To ensure the right stylists are taking care of your bridal appearance, do make sure to schedule your appointments with them in due time – this way, you make sure they will be completely available to help you look stunning on your big day.

What are some of the most important beauty appointments to schedule before the big day? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.


  • The hairstylist. Wearing a perfect hairstyle is surely very important to you – so do schedule your hairstyling appointment as soon as possible (at least a few months before the wedding date). To be absolutely certain your stylist is familiar with your hair type, schedule two appointments before the wedding day – one for a haircut and one for a hairstyle. This will help you decide on the very best style for your big day.
  • The facialist. Want to radiate beauty on your wedding day? Schedule an appointment with a facialist – it will be more than relaxing and more than beneficial for your entire look. However, do make sure you schedule your appointment with at least two-three weeks before the wedding day – especially if you plan on having something harsher done to your face (such as microdermabrasion, for example).
  • The manicurist. Even if you plan on wearing gel manicure on your wedding day, we highly advise you to leave this particular beauty appointment for the day before the wedding itself. This will help you make sure your nails look fresh, shiny and truly beautiful on the big day.
  • The makeup artist. If you want flawless makeup on your wedding day (and you most definitely do want!), we advise you to schedule an appointment with a professional makeup artist. Remember, it may take a few trials until your makeup artist perfects your wedding look. However, as long as you come with lots of sources of inspiration and as long as you are quite specific about what you want (e.g. matte or dewy, for example),
