Your Flower Girl Can Be Anyone!

Leave a comment

Tradition says flower girls walk down the aisle right before the bride to announce her own big entry. However, there are multiple variables tradition doesn’t dictate any longer – and even the presence of the flower girl herself is entirely up to you.

So, who can you choose as your flower girl? The short answer is “anyone” – but here are some tips to help you navigate the decisional process:

  • If you want to keep it very traditional, you can choose a flower girl who is very young (up to 10 years old). She can be a relative (such as a very young cousin), or she can be a friend’s daughter. Either way, do make sure her parents discuss with her the responsibility she’s taking upon her shoulders. Also, make sure they are present at the wedding somewhere where they can easily comfort her if nervousness takes over.
  • If you want to, you can also choose to have an older flower girl – such as a teenager (who can also play the role of a junior bridesmaid), or even a friend who didn’t make it to the bridesmaids’ crew.
  • Last, but definitely not least, if you feel someone else is more suitable for this role, if you want to add a dash of uniqueness to your wedding, or if you simply want to make someone happy, anyone from your group of friends and relatives can play the flower girl role. Yes, even your grandmother – imagine how adorable she will be tossing flower petals to welcome you down the aisle!

Make Sure You Will Really Like Your Wedding Photos

Leave a comment

Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of event – so it definitely deserves to be preserved in a genuinely beautiful way. Yet, how do you actually make sure you will like your wedding pictures – not just a few months after the Big Day, but for the rest of your life as well?

We have some tips to help you create stunning wedding pictures – so read on and find out more.

  • Consider your preferred photography style before you even start searching for a photographer. Every specialist has their own way of shooting pictures – and you really need to ensure their style is compatible with you and your wedding. From super-artistic to ultra-traditional, there’s something for everyone out there – so you will definitely be able to find someone who suits you.
  • Read the contract you sign with your photographer and negotiate any terms that don’t work for you. For example, you should be very careful with the time your photographer will be hired for – in general, it is recommended that you hire him for as many hours as possible (so that he captures as much as he can from the wedding).
  • Test your photographer by bringing them to your engagement photo session. This is where you will be able to truly determine if you will be able to actually communicate with each other- and yes, this is of the utmost importance!
  • Give your photographer a list with all the elements you want him to capture with his camera. Also, discuss the poses and types of photos you want to include in your wedding photo album, as well as the pictures you absolute DON’t want at your Big Day.

Wedding Planning Tips Nobody Told You About

Leave a comment

Most certainly, weddings are very stressful and very complicated – from the moment you say “Yes” during the proposal, to the moment you bid your last farewell on the Big Day, you are bound to experience a true rollercoaster of emotions.

What are some of the wedding planning tips nobody has ever told you before – and why are they important? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • If things go too crazy, just take a break and be you (not you-the-bride-version). Grab a drink and sit down with an old friend. Talk about anything but the wedding itself. It will feel like a real break to simply chit-chat with someone you genuinely like!
  • You may have a list of things to pack when you start your wedding day – but do you have something for the end of it as well? If you plan on staying at the hotel, or if you want to travel directly to your honeymoon location, you might have to pack a bigger luggage at least a couple of days before the wedding and send it to arrive ahead of you.
  • It is perfectly fine to assign someone to “save” you from situations that are too energy-consuming for you – such as discussing with people you don’t know that well, or having everyone come over to hug you (which, yes, can be really amazing – but when the same happens with 200 guests, it can truly drain you too).

Looking for a wedding planner who will make sure your Big Day is perfect from A to Z? If you want to have your wedding in New Orleans, Food Art Inc. can help you out! Aside from our well-known catering services, we can also help you plan the most fantastic wedding your guests have ever been to – so contact us today and learn more about our services!

  • First of all, don’t make it formal if you don’t like the idea. All those old-school wedding traditions can be totally skipped if they give you the nightmares. The receiving line, the speeches, the head table – you can definitely leave them aside and create something more relaxed.
  • You’re with friends. Terrified by the fact that you will have to walk down the aisle and have so many eyes watching your every move on the Big Day? We understand how that feels – but we also know that you can change these negative emotions by thinking you are just among friends. You know these people, they know you, and they will surely do anything to make sure the bride and her groom are totally happy on the Big Day.
  • Last, but definitely not least, don’t let wedding planning put you down. Yes, there’s a lot to do. And yes, sometimes, things won’t go as planned. However, that doesn’t mean you have to put your entire life on hold to plan for the Big Day. Take a break every now and again, get away with your fiancé or with your friends, relax – it can work like a miracle!

Create the Perfect Wedding Website

Leave a comment

In the age of social media and constant connectivity, a wedding website has grown to be almost a
must – and not without reason. Truth be told, a wedding website is the perfect solution for those of you who want to share a bit of extra information useful for the guests, but who don’t want to make the wedding invitation suite feel like an entire “textbook”.

So, how do you create the perfect wedding website? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Include actually useful information – such as directions to your wedding location, GPS coordinates, potential accommodation options, plane ticket information, and everything else you think your guests might need. Also, to make it really easy for everyone to reach your wedding in due time, be sure to include a downloadable, printable PDF version of all these tips.
  • Include your wedding registry information – yes, it is more than OK to do this on your wedding website (but not OK to do it on your invitations!).
  • Include your story. Your wedding website is not just a “useful tool” – it can also be a fantastic way to share your story with your wedding guests. Be as creative as you want and create something that really mirrors the uniqueness of your relationship. From the background color to the photos, design and content, everything about this website should be all about you, your love story, and your lovely wedding day.

Top bridal beauty tips

Leave a comment

All brides want to look fabulous on their wedding day – and you make no exception, right? How to make sure you feel fantastic when you walk down the aisle in your stunning gown? We have some bridal beauty tips for you – so read on to find out more.

  • Take care of your skin – and prep it before applying makeup too. Following a skin treatment that’s suitable for you will automatically make it look better. However, it is very important that you don’t start a new treatment anywhere too close to the wedding date – you absolutely don’t want to get a rash or an allergy on your wedding day.
  • Groom your brows. Like it or not, brows are extremely important for your entire look. You can wear almost no makeup at all – but if your brows look good, your entire face will look beautifully defined and full of personality. Start defining your brows long before the wedding day – sometimes, if you want to change their shape, it will take a few months (or even more) to get them as you want.
  • Apply a special treatment for the lips too. Just like your face, they need hydration and a bit of excess-skin removal, so try to prep them before applying lipstick (especially if you want to wear matte liquid lipstick, which tends to dry the lips!).
  • Get that perfectly shiny hair. Your hair should look gorgeous on your wedding day – so it is important to hydrate it too. Spritz a bit of leave-in conditioner before applying any kind of thermal treatment (such as straightening or curling it with an iron, for example). Also, add a bit of extra-gloss by applying a post-heat treatment too.

Unique style inspiration for your groom

Leave a comment

Your groom wants to look fantastic on his wedding day – but how do you help him find an attire that suits him from all points of view? Even more, how do you help him find something that’s totally unique? We have some amazing style inspiration tips for your groom – so read on to “steal” some inspiration.

  • Looking for a color that looks really stylish on tuxedoes and suits, but doesn’t feel too formal? Gray is the perfect choice, then. Not only is this color versatile in terms of style, but it can also be matched with a variety of other colors – such as pastels, navy, or even bright shades. Ideal for a casual, modern, and fashionable wedding day!
  • If you are searching for a suit or tuxedo that looks really fancy and could easily be pulled off in a very formal and in a very informal environment, navy is precisely what you need. It will look amazing at an chic vineyard wedding, but it will look just as great in an elegant ballroom wedding too.
  • Ideal for beach weddings and Roaring Twenties-inspired events, white dinner jackets are stylish, unique, and truly elegant as well. Combine them with black slacks for an utterly luxurious and dapper vibe – your groom will love it.
  • Whoever said grooms cannot wear multiple colors clearly had no imagination. From floral blouses to dark purple suits, there’s something classy, stylish, and chic for just about every groom out there. Don’t be afraid to get creative – that’s where truly unique outfits are made of!
