Leave a comment

With summer almost here, we bet a lot of Louisiana brides are planning their Southern wedding – and if you’re among them, we also bet you will want this event to be spectacular for every single guest.

Of course, serving excellent food is among your priorities – right? But how about the dessert?

Well, we have gathered 4 Southern summer desserts that would make excellent treats for a wedding day – so read on if you need some inspiration.

  • Southern bread pudding with berries. Need we say more? This simple dessert is a Southern staple everyone loves – precisely because it’s comforting and the berries in it will give it the refreshing taste everyone needs on a hot summer day. A lovely treat both for guests who come from the South and for guests who are completely new to Southern cuisine!
  • Lemon pound cake. This is a truly delicious dessert, especially during the summer. The lemon in it will make it feel more than refreshing, and the scrumptious taste of the cake will surely make guests want to take another round of dancing. Even more, if you have a special lemon pound recipe in your family, you can use that – we bet guests will appreciate the personal note!
  • Banana muffin pudding. Banana pudding is the kind of Southern dessert every single person loves – it’s hard not to, with all the creaminess and amazing taste going on with this treat. If you want to serve an old Southern classic with a more modern twist, the banana muffin pudding is just perfect for you – and it’s definitely perfect for a summer wedding too!
  • Apricot cream fried pies. Every single fundamental ingredient in this screams DELICIOUS. It cannot get more summer-y than apricots, more scrumptious than cream-based desserts, or more comforting than fried pie – and imagine this dessert has them ALL. A true treat your guests will come back to again and again – because it’s just not the kind of dessert you can say “no” to, not to the first serving, and not to the second serving either.

Will the Royal Couple Pay Tribute to Princess Di at Their Wedding?

Leave a comment

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting married in less than one week from now – so we’re all looking forward to what is bound to be one of the most unique royal weddings in history (and there are plenty of reasons to make us think it will be really special).

Will the royal couple pay tribute to princess Diana – and if so, how will they do it? Read on if you’re curious to find out more.

The bridal bouquet will be influenced by one of Princes Diana’s favorite blooms: the white garden rose. Princess Di loved this flower so much that this type of rose was even named after her. Aside from the white garden roses, Meghan will also have peonies in her bouquet – and in all honesty, we think that’s a stunning combination!

  • Rumor has it that Meghan will be wearing the Spencer Tiara, the same splendid piece Princess Diana wore on her wedding day. We really, really want to see that happening – it’s just such a beautiful hair accessory, bearing so much meaningfulness and history with it!
  • The engagement ring Meghan Markle received from Prince Harry includes two diamonds from Princess Diana’s personal collection. What a beautiful, emotional way of honoring her!
  • The wedding dress might also be influenced by Princess Diana’s 1981 piece. Although the dress is still a secret, it is rumored that it might incorporate parts of Princess Di’s wedding dress as well. We’re just dying to see the design, as there have been so many rumors about it! Thankfully, there isn’t much left to the royal wedding, so we’ll all finally get to confirm which rumors were true!
  • After the wedding, Meghan Markle wants to take care of the garden at the Nottingham Cottage, where she and Prince Harry will live, just the way Princess Diana did at the Kensington Palace. This is a wonderful idea, knowing that gardening was one of Princess Di’s most beloved hobbies and Meghan would be honoring her legacy in such a beautiful way if she took up the same occupation!

Your Guests Will Really Love These Southern Cocktails

Leave a comment

Serving the best food at your New Orleans wedding is, of course, one of your top priorities on the to do list. However, you will definitely want to serve the best drinks as well – and a special cocktail is a wonderful way of coordinating your Southern Wedding with your wedding bar as well.

What are the best Southern cocktails you could serve at your wedding? We have some tips for you – read on if you need some inspiration.

  • Mint Julep. This is the ultimate summer cocktail for a Southern event. It is important, though, to use the best ingredients and to make sure you balance them out. Try to use homegrown mint (it just has more flavor), and balance it out with the ingredients of the cocktail in a way that makes the drink feel just perfect (not too strong, not too minty). Guests will absolutely love it!
  • If you want to serve a classic beer-based cocktail, this is the best ever. Twist your basic Michelada recipe with your favorite flavorings (hot sauce or citrus, for example). Also, make sure you use quality beer – whichever is your favorite. It’s a refreshing drink that’s really great for summer, but it can work very well in other seasons as well (just as beer would, for that matter).
  • If you are planning a wedding in New Orleans, this is the absolute classic you can serve. It’s a drink native to New Orleans, one that really tastes like the place you love so much. Same as with every cocktail, it is very important to use the best of ingredients to get the best mix. If you do that, we guarantee guests will really like this, regardless of whether they’re from New Orleans or not.
  • Old Fashioned. The ULTIMATE Southern drink, Old Fashioned is just the kind of cocktail everyone is familiar with, and everyone is bound to love. It’s based on three ingredients (bourbon, bitter, and sugar) and it tastes more than amazing for a wide range of events – including a Southern wedding. You just cannot go wrong with this one.

Guests Will Absolutely Love these Appetizers

1 Comment

Summer’s almost here, and if you want to have a summer wedding in Louisiana, you definitely want to make sure your wedding menu is perfectly aligned with the weather outside (and the amazing ingredients this season’s got to offer!).

So, how do you create wedding appetizers that are absolutely delicious and more than suitable for summer? We have gathered some of the best ideas to inspire you – so read on and find out more.

  • Watermelon treats. What could be more summer-inspired than watermelon itself? Juicy, refreshing, and really, really tasty, watermelon can be served in a multitude of ways. You can settle on the simple way and just serve watermelon triangles on sticks (children will love these healthy popsicles!), or you could serve something more special, such as watermelon bites topped with basil leaves and goat cheese. Delicious!
  • Again, this is an all-time favorite of summer treats, and you have a lot of ways you can serve it at your wedding in New Orleans. You can incorporate them in refreshing fruit brochettes, or you can include them in delicious savory and sweet salads (arugula, strawberries, and cheese make for a wonderful combo!). Either way, they will be a delight for everyone invited!
  • Scrumptious, and almost decadent, these fruits are made for summer treats. Serve them on top of fancy salmon and cheese sandwiches for a sweet touch that’s unique and delicious, or serve them stacked with bacon and cheese for the kind of appetizer guests will definitely come back to.
  • Caprese salad. Want to infuse your wedding with a fresh Italian dish everyone is bound to absolutely love? The classic caprese salad can take as many shapes and sizes as you want. Our suggestion is serving yours on little sticks (one cherry tomato, one basil leaf, one mozzarella ball, all drizzled with just the tiniest amount of balsamic vinegar). If you want to bring your caprese a bit closer to home, grill mozzarella and stack it between tomato slices – it will make for a great fusion between the classic caprese salad and the loved-by-all grilled cheese sandwich.

4 Delicious Sweet Tea Twists for the Perfect Summer Wedding Drinks

1 Comment

Summer is finally right around the corner, ladies and gentlemen – and for all of us, it also means there’s a whole new wedding season waiting to explode with lush florals, gorgeous wedding dresses, and amazing love stories.

If you plan on having a summer wedding in New Orleans, we bet you’ll want to make sure your guests are properly cooled off with the best drinks in town – and what could be better for a Southern Wedding, other than sweet tea?

Following, we have gathered 4 sweet tea ideas you will definitely love including in your wedding day – so read on and find out more if you need a dash of inspiration.

  • Pineapple sweet tea. Add an exotic touch to the classic Southern sweet tea by adding pineapple to it. Not only it tastes great, but it looks pretty amazing too, which makes it perfect for a wedding. The way to make this sweet tea is very similar to the classic recipe – the only exceptions are the you use chunks of frozen pineapple and ice cubes for cooling, as well as the fact that you use pineapple juice in the tea mix.
  • Peach sweet tea. Looking for a fruity sweet tea, but not necessarily something very exotic? Peach sweet tea is perfect for you then! The best way to do this (and make sure you get that delicious peach flavor into your tea) is by making a peach syrup to use when sweetening up the tea (after it’s cooled down). The same method can be used with pretty much any type of fruit.
  • Vodka sweet tea. Want your sweet tea to be served as a cocktail, rather than a refreshment? Add vodka to the mix! Our advice is to use fruit-flavored vodka (whichever you find best), and to create a mixture of fruit syrups for the sweet tea. This way, you can create something really unique your guests are bound to enjoy!
  • Sangria sweet tea. White wine, sweet tea, berries, peaches, and mint – that’s all you need to turn a simple sweet tea into a sangria cocktail everyone will absolutely love. There’s really nothing not to like about this drink!

These Celebrity Weddings Amazed Us in 2017 – Who’s Going to Be Next?

Leave a comment

Let’s admit it: there’s a constant fascination for celebrity weddings we just can’t take out of our minds. In many ways, these are like the life fairy tales we were read when we were children – but they’re very real, they are usually broadcast on a multitude of channels, and they are glamorously modern.

In 2017, the world didn’t fall short of stunning celebrity weddings – and following, we have gathered some of the most gorgeous ones. Read on and steal inspiration for your own Big Day!

  • Renee Young and Dean Ambrose. This was pretty much a secret wedding, but once it got out, everyone wanted to learn the details about Total Divas’ star and how she tied the knot. Not much was released, though – once the news got out, she did confirm it with a simple tweet confirming that “marriage is nice”. We’re still curious, but, then again, this is people’s intimacy – right?
  • Nicky Whelan & Kerry Rhodes. A not so secret wedding filled with a lot of Hollywood faces, this one had it all: the stunning long-sleeved dress created by J’Aton Couture, the elegant tuxedo, the big hotel venue and plenty of glamor. The wedding was officiated by none other Marina Sirtis. What was the bride and groom’s favorite part of the wedding? The no-cellphone rule – which we can agree with, especially if you really want your guests to be present in the moment, rather than Tweeting about it.
  • Sam Hunt & Hannah Lee Fowler. Their wedding wasn’t secret, but it was very intimate, held in Cedartown, Georgia. The entire event was filled with simplicity and beauty, with the bride wearing a country-chic braided hairstyle, flutter sleeves, and ballet flats. So pretty and memorable at the same time!
  • Victoria Swarovski & Werner Mürz. Well, you would expect Swarovski’s wedding to be really glamorous – and oh, boy, was it amazing! Her dress was decorated with no less than 500,000 crystals, and it was worth more than $1 million. Her wedding? Luxurious, adorable, and truly unique all at once – an event in the fullest sense of the word!

4 Mouthwatering Foods from the South, Directly unto Your Wedding Table

2 Comments

Southern foods are absolutely amazing. A cuisine that’s extremely vast and more than generous, Southern foods are to everyone’s liking. It is literally impossible not to like the amazing delicious dishes the South has to offer.

Following, we have gathered some lesser known, but definitely amazing Southern cuisine foods, which you can also include in your wedding menu. Read on and find out more.

  • Alright, this is actually one of the most well-known Southern foods out there – and yet, few people actually think of it when Southern cuisine comes into discussion. We think it’s an absolutely delicious dish – one your guests will surely enjoy regardless of whether they come from the South or not.
  • Sausage gravy. This is not as widely known – but it sure deserves a ranking spot on the list of things everyone should try from the South. Include it in your wedding if you want your festive dinner to feel familiar, hearty, and really comforting. People will just love it!
  • Sweet and crunchy, these would be perfect as late-night snacks for your wedding guests. Who doesn’t love munching on something really tasty before going for yet another round of dancing and having fun? We bet your guests will be asking for more!
  • Apple biscuits. Also sweet and definitely something people will associate with the Southern cuisine, apple biscuits can be absolutely amazing, especially if you want to avoid serving something your guests have seen at hundreds of weddings before.
  • Spicy Southern hot corn. This dish could double as a dip for delicious nachos, but it could also be served as a side dish. Cheesy, spicy, filled with the sweetness of corn – what more could you want from your Southern wedding menu?
  • Baked beans. You will see this cooked in a lot of ways, in a lot of part of the US, and even outside of it. Yet, nothing compares to the familiar, comforting vibes of the Southern baked beans. Serve it to your guests and it’s guaranteed they will love it!
  • Southern squash casserole. A true Southern staple you cannot go wrong with! Serve it to a fall wedding and your guests will ask for more – that’s for certain!
