No Southern Brides and Grooms Should Ever Make These Wedding Menu Mistakes

1 Comment

Regardless of where in the South you come from (be it New Orleans, any other place in Louisiana, or any of the other beautiful Southern states), you should definitely consider planning a traditional Southern wedding. This is a wonderful way to celebrate your heritage and, of course, to offer your guests a “taste of home” as well.

What are some of the mistakes all Southern couples should avoid making when planning their wedding menu?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Bacon-everything. OK, we get it. Here in the South, we love bacon (well, pretty much everyone everywhere else does it too, right?). While it is definitely OK to serve one or two bacon-based dishes at your wedding, it is important not to overdo it. Southern cuisine is so much richer than this, and it would be a real shame if your guests didn’t get to eat something unique they haven’t had before.
  • Not including the personal touches. Every family has their own set of recipes – so why not bring that into your wedding menu to make it more special, more personal, more in tune with who you are and where you come from? Discuss with your wedding catering company and share your family recipes with them to see what can be done. Guests will be delighted to taste these foods!
  • Not spreading out the food stations. There’s a very good reason food stations are popular at Southern weddings: they offer real diversity. At the same time though, it is important not to locate the food stations too close to each other because this might cram everything and it might make guests feel skittish.
  • Serving the heavier foods early in the evening. We’ll admit it: some of the most famously Southern foods are quite heavy and they might make guests feel lazy, rather than ready to dance. This is why it’s important not to serve them at the beginning of the wedding (or at least not all of them). Spread out the heavier foods throughout the entire wedding day (and don’t forget about the late-night snack either!).

Virginia Williams’ Wedding Was So, So Beautiful!

Leave a comment

Virginia Williams got married – and, as you’d expect it from a celebrity, her wedding was nothing short of absolutely superb details. What are the ones that amazed the world the most and how to “steal” some celebrity wedding inspiration from Virginia Williams and Pusha T’s wedding?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • The wedding guest list was quite restricted with about 150 of the couple’s closest friends attending the wedding. Of course, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian couldn’t have missed such an event, so they were there too, to celebrate the newlyweds’ event. Who was the Best Man? None other than Pharell Willams, of course.
  • The wedding took place in Virginia Beach at a historic hotel, and it was everything you’d imagine a classy, elegant, and timeless wedding would be. Even the wedding date chosen by the couple bears a very powerful significance – not only did they become engaged on the 21st of July, but Pusha proposed at 7:21 PM as well, and, according to his own statements, the “721” numbers keep appearing everywhere he turns around. Talk about destiny!
  • As it happens to many other brides, Virginia Williams found that her original wedding dress idea was nothing like what she eventually ended up with. In fact, she didn’t end up with one gown, but two The first one was a luxuriant floral embroidered Marchesa dress with a deep V-neck, which she wore for the wedding ceremony, while the second dress was a party-oriented Reem-Acra strapless, sweetheart and illusion neckline gown that flattered Virginia and allowed her to have the time of her life.
  • The wedding décor was simple, but it was complemented by the stunning backdrop of the ocean watching over the couple’s wedding vows. To symbolize their solid partnership, the couple said their wedding vows in the middle of the aisle, surrounded by the happy tears of those invited and simple, yet majestic greenery.
  • The wedding menu was nothing short of amazing either. Guests served lobster, short rib, and lamb, and the wedding cake itself was presented only towards the end of the night, on golden shelves. As a send-off snack, Pusha T and Virginia Williams called in their favorite local eatery to offer guests a well-deserved treat.

Ashley Greene Got Married!

1 Comment

Famous Twilight star Ashley Greene got married – and, as you’d expect it, her wedding was absolutely amazing. Of course, all brides and grooms want to plan their weddings as they please – and they want to infuse these events with their personality.

Yet, sometimes, peeking into celebrity weddings can really give you a bunch of great idea – so, to help you inspire yourself, we’ve gathered some of the essentials that characterized Ashley Green’s Big Day. Read on if you want to find out more:

  • The bride wore not one, but two splendid dresses. The gown she wore for the wedding ceremony was a creation signed by Katie May – a stunning, sophisticated, simple white gown with a generous décolletage and a train that was just perfect for the outdoor wedding the couple had their hearts set on from the very beginning. The second gown, the one Ashley wore for the reception, was signed by Windi Williams-Stern – and it was a truly splendid, feminine piece embellished with flowers and just a tint of a nude color.
  • The happy groom, Paul Lokai, wore a posh Armani suit, which he paired with a Dior vest and a pair of Louboutins that complemented the entire attire and made him look amazing. Also, the bridesmaids were all dressed in blush/ nude gowns as well, with the Maid of Honor wearing a more special piece with more embellishments that helped her stand out.
  • The wedding ceremony backdrop was decorated with a beautiful wreath made from pampas grass, roses, and eucalyptus, which complemented the wedding ceremony aisle décor and the entire atmosphere of their wedding. As the couple said, the circle was symbolic of their everlasting love and of the commitment they made to each other. What an amazing idea for any wedding!
  • The wedding took place outdoors, because, as mentioned above, the couple wanted an outdoor wedding from the very beginning. The location they chose was a resort just outside of the Silicon Valley, near the redwoods – so the backdrop of the entire Big Day was stunning, as you’d expect it from a celebrity wedding, right?

Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie Have Tied the Knot!

1 Comment

Ring the bells, because a huge Game of Thrones event happened!

No, winter isn’t coming, and there might be quite some time until we’re graced to see the grand GoT finale.

But another great (perhaps even more beautiful!) thing happened: Kit Harrington (who plays John Snow in the famous TV series) and Rose Leslie (who played Ygritte in the same series) got married. And oh, it was a beautiful wedding!

  • The bride stunned everyone in a gorgeous creation signed Elie Saab. Her long-sleeved, lacy, illusion wedding gown suited her absolutely perfectly and really made her look absolutely radiant. Even more, she matched her bridal attire with a pretty white flower crown that looked really amazing with that dress!
  • Kit Harrington was quite posh as well. He wore a classic, long black jacket, a cream-colored vest, and a pair of striped pants – and together with his bride, they made a really trendy and stylish couple!
  • As you would expect from such an event, there were a lot of stars present to celebrate the newlywed’s event. Of course, a lot of them were Game of Thrones stars themselves: Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister in the series), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen on screen), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark in the show), and Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark in GoT) are just some of the names that enchanted the wedding.
  • Aside from Game of Thrones stars, there were other celebrities present at the wedding too. A couple of names included here are Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons) and Makin Akerman.
  • The reception tool place at Rose Leslie’s family estate, which, according to statements, includes its own castle. Looks like Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie wanted their own royalty-worthy wedding – and oh, judging by the stories we’ve heard, it really was!
  • Rumor mill has it that a fan even hid in the bushes to be present to the ceremony. While this might be completely made up, it’s still fun (and quite creepy) to think to the extents some would go just to witness this kind of wedding!

These Celebrity Weddings WOWed The World

1 Comment

Celebrity weddings are always inspiring, regardless of what kind of wedding you want, whether or not you want a small wedding or a large one, a casual or an elegant wedding in New Orleans. Over the years, many such weddings have fired up everyone’s creativity, inspiring everyone to create events that are always unique and beautiful.

What are some of the most important celebrity weddings in history and how were they so special? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

  • Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Their entire love story seems torn out of a movie, and their weddings (yes, you read that right, more than one wedding) did not disappoint either. The two of them got together while Elizabeth was still married with someone else, and then had two weddings. The first one was in 1964 and the second one was in 1975. At her first wedding, Elizabeth Taylor wore a splendid canary yellow dress, and at her second wedding, she wore a green lace gown (both of which defied the tradition of having to wear white).
  • Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra. After a very short ceremony that only lasted for about four minutes, the two flied to Palm Springs for a huge party that included guests like Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, and Dean Martin.
  • Brad Pitt and Jenifer Aniston. Their wedding spared no money at all – it is estimated that they spent approximately $1 million for their Big Day. Their wedding took place at their Malibu estate and it was, indeed, one of the events that truly marked the beginning of the 2000s.
  • Yoko-Ono and John Lennon. Probably one of the most famous all-time weddings, this is one inspiring for the original, unconventional couples out there. Initially, Yoko and John wanted to get married on a ferry, but when that failed, they got married in a 10-minute ceremony at the British Consulate Office in Gibraltar. Yoko was wearing a mini skirt and a large hat!

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!

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

1 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!
