Reasons why you will want to take your husband’s last name

Leave a comment

These days, it is not absolutely mandatory that a bride takes her husband’s last name – and while there may be reasons not to do this, there are plenty of them to convince you to do it as well. Why would you want to take your husband’s last name after the wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • It bonds you together – and it shows the world just how committed you are. Taking the husband’s last name shows you are really into this – but more than anything, it is symbolical of the family you are just starting. Plus, taking his name shows the world you are really off the market for good as well.
  • It’s easier for the kids. If you plan on having children, taking the husband’s last name will make it easier for them to understand what a family is. Given that the vast majority of the wives take their husbands’ names after marriage, it might be confusing for the little ones to know that you haven’t done this (and they might not completely understand why).
  • It’s just a matter of aesthetics. You may not like your name that much, or you may simply like his name a lot. This becomes especially important when you run a business or when you are a writer or artists – the more beautiful your name sounds, the more likely it is that people will remember you and your work.

Bridal beauty do’s and don’ts to keep in mind for your wedding

Leave a comment

As a bride, you want to look radiant when you walk down the aisle. What are the essential beauty tips to remember for this very special event in your life, though? We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Take care of your skin. If you need treatments, be sure to attend to them months before your wedding – facials are not to experiment with a couple of days before the Big Day. Also, be sure you eat right and drink plenty of water, as both of these things can be utterly important for the health and beauty of your own skin.
  • Invest in good foundation. The perfect foundation should be slightly lighter than your natural skin, but not too light (and definitely not too dark either). Furthermore, it is recommended that you avoid foundation with SPF protection, as this can reflect light (and it may not look very appealing in the wedding photos).
  • Don’t apply any kind of hair dye before the wedding. If you want to change your hair color, make sure to do it long before the Big Day. Moreover, we also advise brides to avoid very fresh haircuts before the wedding too – it’s better to do this at least one-two months before the wedding.
  • Don’t use too much powder. You may be tempted to think it will look better in the picture, but too much powder can create a “cakey” appearance you will most likely not appreciate.

Don’t have regrets on your wedding day

Leave a comment

Nothing should shadow your wedding day. This is a magical event in your life and you deserve to be the happiest person on Earth. Yet, how do you make sure you don’t have any kind of regrets on your wedding day?

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


  • Book very good day-of wedding professionals. You will definitely regret not paying a bit more for a decent photographer or for a DJ who actually understands how wedding “crowds” function. Put in the extra-work, run your research, and choose vendors who are really amazing at what they do.
  • Not eating before the actual wedding. Trust us, this is going to be a crazy day, so you should absolutely have something to eat before you start getting ready. You need the energy – and eating during the wedding may not be as easy as you think…
  • Not prioritizing comfort. Yes, stiletto heels look gorgeous, and oversized wedding dresses do look amazingly “fairytale-like”. But do you really want to spend the most amazing day of your life feeling utterly uncomfortable? Probably not…
  • Not spending some time alone with your loved one. We’ll say it as it is: on your wedding day, all the spotlights will be on you and your partner. And while this is definitely energizing, it can also be quite tiresome – so make sure to take a brief break with your SO and “run” away from the all the eyes, even if just for 10 minutes.

Farm-to-table themes are gorgeous for weddings!

Leave a comment

Choosing the perfect wedding theme is crucial for your Big Day’s success and beauty – and truly, there’s almost no other theme to be as popular and as in-demand as the country-chic one. How to bring it on your wedding tables, though? We’ve gathered the best tips of advice for you – so read on and create your own farm-to-table wedding theme!


  • The tables should be long and rectangular. They can definitely be uncovered, – so don’t worry about table linens too much. However, if you don’t want table linens, you should definitely add a table runner to the mix. It can be colored, it can be dashingly elegant, or they can be vintage – whichever suits you best. Last, but definitely not least, the color of the wood can make a huge difference, with darker colors being more elegant (and suitable for mountainside weddings), and lighter colors being a bit more casual.
  • The color theme should go well with the natural appearance of the wooden tables. Yet, the great news about this is that wooden touches can be extremely versatile – so feel free to use bright colors for a pop of energy and playfulness, greenery and white for timeless elegance, or even dark colors for a unique and almost mysterious appearance.
  • Last, but not least, the flowers should stand out as well. Roses and peonies are always a classic, but you can definitely go beyond that as well – for example orchids, wild flowers, and even all-green arrangements are hugely popular among brides and grooms.

Does your Best Man know his duties?

Leave a comment

Your Best Man is one of your closest (and probably oldest) friends. You know each other more than well, and he knows just how important it is for you that your wedding is really great. Does your Best man know his duties, though? If not, we have gathered some tips for you and for him – so read on and find out more.


  • One of the first tasks the Best Man will take during the wedding planning process is that of coordinating all the other groomsmen. For example, he will coordinate them to purchase or rent the right tuxedoes – and he will also make sure the groomsmen attend their fitting appointments too.
  • Furthermore, the Best Man is the person who will traditionally plan the Bachelor Party. Remember, this doesn’t have to be about a wild night – it can as well be something classy and elegant. At the end of the day, you know the groom better than anyone, and you know what type of party would make him happier.
  • At the wedding, the Best Man will walk down the aisle with the Maid of Honor, and he will also be the one to hold the bride’s wedding ring (until it is placed on her finger, of course).
  • Furthermore, the Best Man has the obligation to dance with the Maid of Honor and, of course, to give a toast for the bride and groom. He will be the one to open the toasts, actually – so if you are the Best Man, you will definitely want to pull of a truly memorable speech.
  • In today’s era, however, wedding traditions are transforming! There is no rule stating that you must have a Best Man, or even a man at all for that matter. If your best friend is a woman, then you may have a Best Woman, which is entirely alright, and will certainly add a uniqueness to your big day.

Don’t say “Yes!” to the dress without asking yourself these top questions

Leave a comment

Finding the right wedding dress can sometimes be a long and winding road. But, at the end of it, you will wear the most amazing wedding gown of all times, feeling genuinely happy and downright superb as you walk down the aisle towards your loved one.

What are some of the top questions to ask yourself during the wedding dress search? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.


  • Do you feel comfortable enough wearing it? Many brides believe their wedding dresses are supposed to be uncomfortable – but that’s completely untrue. You need to be able to breathe, move around and, most importantly, dance in your wedding gown. Do make sure you feel comfortable in it before you actually purchase it!
  • Do you really, really love it? Simply “liking” your wedding dress isn’t enough. You should absolutely love it. You should fall in love with every inch of the dress you have chosen to wear on your Big Day.
  • Are you settling just for the sake of getting it over with? Don’t do that, you will thoroughly regret it. Search around, try on dresses and only settle on that which truly feels like “the one”.
  • Is there any way you can get it cheaper? Once you have found your favorite dress, search it online and see if you can find it cheaper. No need to order it off the Internet though, many bridal boutiques will gladly price match if you talk to them about it!

Your New Orleans wedding should be nothing less than amazing – and this is why we’re here for you. If you are searching for a wedding planner or catering provider in the area, be sure to contact Food Art Inc. as soon as possible!

Your bridal makeup should be flawless

Leave a comment

As a bride, you surely want to be flawless from head to toe – and your makeup makes no exception from this rule. How to pull off the perfect bridal makeup and what are the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to this? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Vintage and classy. If you want to sport a classy, elegant, vintage look, focus on creating a simple, neutral eye makeup and on pulling off a flawless red lip. You can play around with the shades, so that they fit your skin tone (e.g. if you have a cool skin tone, search for a red lipstick with blue undertones to match your skin and light up the entire makeup).
  • Bold lips. Not necessarily vintage (but definitely very trendy this year), bold lips can be achieved with just about any lipstick color you may want. Berry lips tend to be highly popular, especially during the cool season of the year, but you can pull this off with just about any other color – maroon, orange-toned red, and so on.
  • Rosy cheeks. Looking for a very natural makeup? Focus on creating the perfect base and apply a cute rosy blush to complement your romantic mood. Don’t go too heavy on the eye makeup and keep it light with the lipstick too – a bit of gloss or a matte nude shade will look amazing with this type of makeup.

Food Art Inc. can help you plan the most amazing New Orleans wedding your guests have ever been to. Contact us today, let’s talk about your dream wedding and leave your planning details to us. We’ll make sure everything is perfect, so that you can focus on simply enjoying this special event in your life.
