Rain on Your Wedding Day? Here’s What to Do

Leave a comment

Rainy days cannot always be predicted – and much less months ahead of an event. Therefore, regardless of the wedding season you have chosen, there will always be a chance that rain will pour on your Big Day.

Does that mean you have to sit back and let rain wash over your wedding?

On the contrary – you should actually make the most out of this situation. We have some tips to help you – so read on to find out more.

  • Prepare yourself. If your wedding day is approaching and rain starts to take contour in the forecast, make sure to prepare yourself with all the necessary “tools” that will make a rainy wedding a lot A nice-looking jacket and a pair of Wellies, a pretty umbrella – these are golden accessories to have on you once if you are looking ahead at a less-than-sunny wedding day.
  • Yes, you can (and should!) take photos. Photos are one of the main concerns brides and grooms have when rain is forecast for their Big Day. However, you shouldn’t worry about this. On the contrary, actually, you should actually take this opportunity and shoot some really dramatic pictures – they will look so pretty!
  • Take care of your guests too. Make your guests feel excellent, even if it’s raining outside. To begin with, be sure to have an indoor location available at hand if your first option was an outdoor wedding (or at least be sure you can put up a tent to protect everyone from the rain). Mulled wine, hot chocolate, nice music and good food – yes, they will totally make people forget about the rain outside!

If you want your special drinks to be really amazing and unique, opt for something that’s based on herbal ingredients. People will absolutely love it!
  • Flowery food. We’re already used to seeing fresh flowers on cakes (especially naked cakes), but have you considered including flowers in your wedding food as well? As it seems, this is a huge trend for 2018 and you have all the reasons to include it in your Big Day too: it looks absolutely stunning and it tastes truly great as well!
  • Choux-nut. Choux pastry is one of the best foods to ever be invented – and in 2018, it’s getting a whole new “face”! Shaped like doughnuts, choux pastry desserts will come in unique combinations – such as raspberry and matcha, maple and pecan, or elderflower and lemon. Absolutely delicious!

Daytime Wedding? Here Are Some Tips for You!

Leave a comment

Planning a wedding can be quite the confusing process, especially when you want to step out just a bit out of what’s usually done in the New Orleans area. However, that shouldn’t put you off, and even more so when you really want to have a unique, personalized wedding day.

For instance, if you have your heart set on a daytime wedding, you have a million reasons to love the idea. From the fact that you save money to the fact that you add a serious ingredient of originality to the mix, a daytime wedding can be absolutely perfect.

How do you plan it, though? Here are some tips to help you with this:

  • Keep in mind that a daytime wedding means you will most likely have to wake up earlier than otherwise. To make sure you have time to wake up and relax a bit before getting ready, remember to set your alarm clock accordingly.
  • If the reason for your daytime wedding is a cost saving one, then start your ceremony after lunch so your guests will have already had a little something to eat, and by the time 2 pm ticks in, your guests should be arriving at your reception for drinks and lite nibbles. You can make your grand exit at 4:45 pm, or, if you want the wedding to be a bit longer and entertain your guests a bit more, you can push this towards 6 pm.
  • Aside from the schedule, most of the other wedding elements will be essentially the same. You can keep the wedding as formal or as casual as you want (although “black tie” at night is quite different from “formal” during the day). The food should be light and seasonal. You can serve drinks. And, of course, you can dance as well!

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.

Why Wear White at Your Wedding?

Leave a comment

If you look at the last couple of decades in the wedding industry, you will see just how much things have changed and how permissive weddings are these days. Take, for example, the white dress. Most brides are not obliged to wear one on their Big Day – and yet, many choose to do it.

Why wear white at your wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Believe it or not, the white wedding tradition is not even 200 years old – and when Queen Victoria wore a white wedding gown for the first time, it was actually considered to be a scandal.
  • In time, the white wedding dress started to be adopted by more and more brides. At first, a matter of fashion (because, well, if royalty wears it, then it is definitely a good idea to wear it too). Yet, as time flew by, the white wedding dress started to be associated with purity.
  • You can definitely choose to wear a white wedding gown too, regardless of how conventional or unconventional you want the Big Day to be. Ultimately whatever you choose, it should make you feel beautiful and special on your big day
  • If you want a traditional wedding, if you want to feel like a fairy tale bride, or if you are simply in love with the beauty of a white wedding dress – these are just a few of the reasons to win you on the white side. However, the choice is entirely up to you, in the end!

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.
