Do You Know The Latest Wedding Gown Trends for Fall?

Leave a comment

There’s nothing more beautiful than a bride who feels like her true self as she walks down the aisle – and if you want that for yourself as well, you should definitely make sure to choose a dress that suits you from every point of view.

What are the latest fall wedding gown trends? We have gathered some of the most amazing ones right below – so read on if you need a bit of inspiration.

  • Detached sleeves. While off-the-shoulder dresses were a definite comeback in the last couple of years, it’s time to push this even further. Detached sleeves have the same femininity to them as off-the-shoulder gowns did last season – but they add an edgy element to the entire dress, making it truly unique and outstanding.
  • Nude dresses. Pink has been around for quite some time in the bridal world – but this year, it comes in a package with superb shades of nude colors. If you want a tad of color but not too much, if you want to push tradition over the edge a little, these dresses are absolutely perfect for you!
  • Mid-length and short. Tired of ultra-long wedding gowns that get in the way of your comfort? Fashion runways have responded to this, and you’ll see stunning collections including mid-length and short dresses that are still ultra-feminine and delicate, but with a twist. You will love wearing this type of dress or duo if you want to be a very original bride!

Coordinate Your Cake and Your Wedding Theme

Leave a comment

Your wedding theme dictates everything – even your wedding gown can be highly influenced by the theme you pick for the Big Day. Why would your wedding cake make any kind of difference, then?

Here are some of the most creative ideas to keep in mind when coordinating your cake and your wedding theme:

  • Forest wedding theme. With Fall here and Winter right around the corner, many of you may choose a forest or mountain location for your Big Day. The perfect cake for this type of wedding? A delicious work of chocolate-y art wrapped in lady fingers – it will look perfect for the landscape surrounding you and it will definitely impress your guests both from the point of view of the aesthetics and from that of the taste.
  • Winter wonderland/ icy wedding theme. Tired of ice blue and winter weddings? Everyone is – so why not turn it really elegant and focus on white and silver? A three-tiered cake with a lush silver-covered middle tier will look absolutely breathtaking – so much so that guests will want to grab a slice as soon as possible!
  • Southwest wedding theme. Planning a wedding inspired by the Southwestern ethnic arts? This will look amazing on a cake! Decorate your dessert table with a Southwestern blanket and ask your pastry chef to decorate the cake with the same weaved pattern. If you want to keep it really elegant and pretty, this can be done with two different shades of white, or a 3D design imitating the famous patterns.

Big Wedding Menu Questions? Here Are Your Answers

Leave a comment

Undoubtedly, food is one of the most important elements to consider when planning the Big Day. Your venue may not be the most luxurious one, your blooms may not be off-season, and your wedding favors may be just a sweet treat – but your food needs to be absolutely delicious if you want guests to really love your wedding.

So, what are some of the most common wedding menu questions brides and grooms encounter? We’ve gathered them (and the answers) right below, so read on and find out more.

  • Are there foods to not include, under any circumstances? No, not really – this is your wedding, so as long as the food is fresh, suits a your guests’ varied tastes, and is well cooked, people will be happy. However, we would definitely advise couples not to serve any kind of messy food – such as lobster, for example. It may be delicious and special, but it can be a real hazard for guests who are all dressed up.
  • Should you serve food at your cocktail hour? Preferably, yes. This pre-event will set the tone for the big party, so we definitely advise couples to serve at least a few light bites – such as soup shooters or mini sandwiches.
  • Should you serve a late-night snack? Totally, yes! It doesn’t have to cost a fortune – you can even order pizza if you want to keep it really casual. Doing this will keep the party going and it will definitely bring a smile on your guests’ faces!

New Wedding Etiquette You Might Want to Remember

Leave a comment

Wedding etiquette is no longer a fixed set of rules. As society changes, etiquette adapts to its new forms of communication as well. What are some of the newest digital wedding etiquette rules you might want to remember when planning your wedding (as well as on the Big Day)? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • You can updated your relationship status on Facebook whenever you feel it’s OK. While we always advise brides to post their engagement ring pictures after calling their parents and close friends, we don’t have any specific “deadline” for the actual change of the relationship status on Facebook. You can do it as soon as you post the engagement ring picture, or you can do it in a few months – whatever feels right for you.
  • Stay away from sharing too many planning details. Aside from the fact that your guests want the wedding to be a surprise (so they don’t need to know all the table linens and flower vases you have chosen), it is also distasteful to share pricing details about anything. Everybody knows weddings get quite expensive, but you shouldn’t make your guests feel obligated to buy a bigger wedding gift by telling them how much their meal, seat, or wedding DJ costs!
  • Get social on your wedding day too. You will be too busy to tweet and post updates, but someone can actually do this for you. Assign someone with this task so that your wedding is “fully covered” on Twitter (they do it with big events, such as the Oscars and the VMAs, so why wouldn’t you be allowed to do the same?). Also, add a digital side to the Big Day by creating a special hashtag – one your guests can use to connect all the pictures they will share on the social media during the wedding.

So, When Do You Have to Send the Save the Date Cards?

Leave a comment

We all know wedding planning and the etiquette associated with it can be quite confusing – especially today, when things seem to be changing from one month to the other.

Given that your Save the Date cards are very important, you don’t want them to be left to the aforementioned wedding planning confusion. So when do you have to send them, more exactly? We’ve gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • First of all, you should know Save the Date cards are not absolutely mandatory. HOWEVER, they are important because it is a polite way to “grab dibs” on the guests and let them know well ahead of time that you are getting married and would like them to join in the celebration.
  • Generally, Save the Date cards should be sent out with about 6-8 months before the wedding date. This should give people plenty of time to plan in advance, take vacation days if needed, make travel arrangements, and so on. Your invitations should be sent 8 weeks before the wedding day too – so by that time, guests should decide if they can attend your wedding (and send back the RSVPs).
  • If you plan on having a destination wedding or a holiday weekend wedding, be sure to give your guests even more of a heads-up. Because these weddings need more preparation (and sometimes they can even include the cancelling of your guests’ plans), it is customary to send them out at least 9 months before the Big Day. Ideally, you should send them about 1 year ahead of the wedding date.

Escort Cards You Will Love This Fall

Leave a comment

Escort cards are more than just pieces of décor – they have a very clearly defined purpose and they can save you and your wedding party from a lot of trouble when guests start entering the reception room.

At the same time, it would be a pity not to take advantage of these pieces of New Orleans wedding stationery! How to choose designs that really stand out? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Let’s face it: fall is one of the most romantic seasons ever – there’s just poetry floating in the air, at every single step of the way. Why not bring this into your wedding day as well? Calligraphy on leaves can make for ideal, eco-friendly, seasonal-inspired wedding.
  • They say an apple a day keeps the doctor way – but what if an apple would be the escort card support that would keep chaos away from your Big Day? Take beautiful apples and wrap your guests’ name around it. Plus, you can leave encourage guests to eat their apples once they find their seats.
  • Another autumn motif you will literally find everywhere (even for free, if you are willing to clean up those that might have gotten a bit dirtier). Another “fall icon” brides absolutely love! Attach a small note with your guests’ name to the pinecone and it will be the perfect complement to a romantic fall event in New Orleans!

Leave a comment

Food bars are a very special touch you can bring into your New Orleans wedding day. Although food has always been served at weddings, these bars have a unique quality that makes them downright fascinating for brides and grooms planning their wedding, as well as for guests who simply want to have fun celebrating their friends’ love story.

What are some of the wedding food bar ideas you haven’t heard of before, but which will really appeal to you? Read on and steal some inspiration.

  • A pie bar. This is absolutely perfect for a wedding planned in the Southern spirit – because, let’s admit it: what could be heartier, more welcoming, warmer, or more delicious, other than a table filled with the sweetest pies your guests have ever tasted?
  • Spud bar. Everyone loves potatoes. Mashed or fried, wedges or crinkle-cut, tater tots or baked – potatoes are simply universal. Organize a cute spud bar for your guests to snack on and they will definitely love the idea!
  • Hot chocolate bar. This is just perfect for the upcoming cool season, so if you want to have your wedding in the next few months, be sure to plan this hot chocolate bar! Provide people with different types of hot chocolate and toppings to warm up their bodies (and their souls) and you will win their unending love!
  • Croissant bar. Planning a brunch wedding? That’s a wonderful idea, especially if you want something elegant, but less pricy than a traditional dinner wedding! Pamper your guests with a variety of croissants and patisseries beautifully arranged on a special table – they will find it amazing!
