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!

Thank You Notes Ideas to Inspire You

Leave a comment

Your guests have spent their time (and money!) to be there for you on this special day of your life. Some of them have even traveled a long way to make sure they are participating in this huge, life-changing event. Of course, they deserve all of your gratitude – and this is precisely why it is really important to send them genuine, heartfelt Thank You notes.

What are some of the best Thank You notes ideas to inspire you? We have gathered them right below – so read on and “steal” some tips!

  • Say it with sparklers. Will you have a late evening wedding? Sneak out with your spouse and your photographer and “write” the letters to “Thank You” in the air, using sparklers. This will look festive and beautiful – and, with the help of a good photographer, it will also be gorgeously captured in pictures you can actually use as Thank You notes.
  • Use a chalkboard. We all know how popular chalkboards are these days – so why not use one to send out your message? Write your Thank You on a chalkboard and have your photographer capture this. Guests will love the naturalness and sincerity of this Thank You card!
  • On your favorite book. Is there a book that defines your relationship and love story? If so, write your Thank You on the pages of this book and have the photographer capture it. Sentimental and beautiful, these Thank You cards will speak so much about you and who you are as a couple!

What Is The Hardest Part about Wedding Planning?

Leave a comment

People keep saying wedding planning is one of the most difficult and stressful times in one’s life – but what is it that makes brides and grooms feel so anxious, in the end? What are the hardest parts about wedding planning?

We have some tips for you – so read on and be prepared for what lies ahead of you as the bride and groom-to-be.

  • Planning a long-distance wedding IS more difficult than planning an event at home. Just think of the logistics involved in this, the number of phone calls and emails, the uncertainty of not knowing exactly who your vendors are… In the end, though, it will be all worth it – but do make sure you are patient, organized and stick to your plan!
  • Speaking of organization, it can be difficult to stay on point even when planning a wedding that’s closer to home. There are a number of factors that influence this: the almost crazy amount of inspiration you can collect from various sources, the lack of experience in planning large events, and even the fact that you sometimes have to rely on other people to “make things happen”. Stay calm, keep your list of to do’s close and don’t panic when things don’t go exactly as planned!
  • Last, but definitely not least, keeping the parents happy may prove to be more difficult than you might have thought. From the fact that they might want to invite more people than you want to the fact that they might want to have a say in terms of menu, colors, wedding theme and even wedding attires, there’s a myriad of issues you will have to tackle with a lot of diplomacy.

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!
