  • Naked cakes will continue to rise in popularity – and if you have been thinking of the idea, you can definitely embrace it in the upcoming wedding season too. Decorate your naked cake with fresh flowers and fruit and guests will love its looks just as much as they will love its amazing taste!
  • In terms of wedding gowns, future trends seem to focus on metallic shades and lacy designs. What could be more glamorous, more feminine and more beautiful than these trends? And the best part about them is that they are virtually perfect for just about any type of wedding theme you may settle on!
  • Wedding photographers will put a lot more emphasis on naturalness and spontaneity – so you can expect to see less “staged” wedding photos and more spontaneous, candid wedding pictures.
  • In 2016, we have seen more and more seasonal and local flowers taking over the wedding world – and we can expect to see more of this in the upcoming months too. Furthermore, centerpieces will get more varied, with different types of centerpieces brought together in the same wedding décor – and even on the same tables too. So much room for creativity!

These love quotes can provide great inspiration for your wedding vows

Love is a sentiment that transcends everything mankind has ever known: space, time, borders, and even knowledge itself. It is precisely for this reason that love has inspired so many artists, so many writers and so many musicians to create beauty that grasps at least a small part of the complexity of the most amazing feeling a human being can feel.

Your wedding vows are extremely important to you – so why not take inspiration from some of the most well-known love quotes out there, and create vows that are meaningful, unforgettable and genuinely emotional? Here are some ideas you could use:

  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
  • Lana del Rey. “When someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that is love”.
  • Tyler Knott Gregson. “Because of you I can feel myself slowly but surely becoming the one I have always dreamed of being”.
  • Maya Angelou. “In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”
  • Albert Einstein. “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”
  • Jackson Brown, Jr. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.”

The Big Day that’s not only flawless from an organizational point of view, but also meaningful, personal and absolutely unforgettable?

As we enter into summer, you might be one of the brides preparing for the much-expected Big Day. And while you surely have plenty of reasons to love summer (and to have settled on a summer wedding date), the truth is that there may still be some things you might have not considered when planning the Big Day.

No worries! There are plenty of small additions you can make last-minute to make your summer wedding truly comfortable and unforgettable for everyone there! Read on to find out more.

  • Order some extra flowers. Even with the highest attention to detail and even by choosing flowers that are highly heat-resistant, there may still be some flowers that cannot withstand the temperature outside. This can be easily solved by simply ordering some extra flowers (for the boutonnieres, for example). After all, it is better to stay on the safe side, rather than worry about this!
  • Offer refreshments for the guests. Wedding planning can be really stressful – so it is understandable if you have left some things slip away. One of the issues you absolutely have to handle though is that of the water and refreshments. The last thing you want is to make your guests feel sick due to dehydration!
  • Get some bug-repellent weapons. Insect bites are nasty, they can be really annoying and they can definitely ruin a guest’s party mood – so keep the fliers away from yourself and your loved ones by providing everyone insect repellent sprays. Also, remember that there are various natural ways to keep bugs away too – such as citronella candles, for example. If your venue allows candles inside, these ones would be a great choice!

Know the basics to creating a perfect rehearsal dinner

The rehearsal dinner is one of the most important and emotional pre-wedding events – so, as the couple-to-be-married, you definitely want this party to be really amazing for everyone. How to do it, though? How to plan a rehearsal dinner everyone will genuinely enjoy? Here are the basics to keep in mind when creating the perfect rehearsal dinner:

  • First of all, you should understand the purpose of this gathering. For once, it is a great opportunity to rehearse the speeches and all the other important parts of the wedding reception. But even more than that, it is a very good way to introduce guests to one another, so that they socialize better on your wedding day.
  • Furthermore, you should also know that the rehearsal dinner can be as casual or as formal as you want it to be (from backyard barbecue parties to sophisticated events, everything goes). In general though, the rehearsal dinner is less formal than the actual wedding, but not by a lot (so if you want to have a fancy ballroom wedding, your rehearsal could happen at an elegant restaurant, for example).
  • Also, it is essential to know that the guest list should include all the wedding VIPs and all of the out-of-town guests as well. Moreover, it is also customary to invite the officiant and his/her spouse, so make sure you plan for this as well.
  • Generally speaking, no invitations need to be sent for the rehearsal dinner – except for very fancy affairs. So, if you plan on having a rather elegant party for this pre-wedding event, you should definitely send out invitations (with or shortly after the wedding invitations) and you should also request for RSVPs.

Allow yourself to prepare for your wedding day by knowing some quick tips

Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of event – so it is only natural to want everything about it to be perfect. What are some quick tips to help you make sure your Big Day is flawless from multiple points of view? Read on and find out more.

  • Remember this: even if you are on a budget, it shouldn’t mean you will have anything that is considered “cheap”, inexpensive things can still be viewed as quite luxurious. In fact, if you want to successfully reconcile the fact that you are on a budget with the fact that you want a splendid wedding, shop for value. Choose those items that bring the most value to your wedding and skimp on anything but those items.
  • The vendors you work with are extremely important. There is no such thing such as “booking vendors too early”- so you can definitely start searching for the right ones as soon as possible. Make sure you choose vendors whose expertise you can actually trust – but, at the same time, keep in mind that this is your wedding and no piece of advice should be taken without considering your
  • Last, but not least, bear in mind that the wedding party will act as the leaders of the entire wedding as well. If they are on the dance floor all night long, it is a lot more likely that the other guests will follow their lead. On the other hand, if your bridal party is at the bar, the guests will most probably do the same.

Avoid these music mistakes at your wedding to make sure your guests have a great time!

There’s nothing more powerful than music – and this is precisely why your wedding music is really important for the success of your Big Day. What are some of the most important wedding music mistakes to avoid making at your wedding, though? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

  • Not hiring a professional. Regardless of whether you decide to work with a DJ or with a band, hiring a music professional is more than important for your wedding. Using a USB to play music or having a friend may seem like better ideas from a financial point of view – but you should definitely think twice before settling for either of them.
  • Not making a list of songs. No matter how amazingly talented your DJ or band may be, you will still have to provide him/them with a list of songs you want and a list of songs you don’t want at your wedding. Otherwise, you cannot expect them to know what songs you like or dislike – and you might end up with a playlist that doesn’t suit you.
  • Not mixing genres. OK, you may be a big fan of heavy metal, country or traditional Indian music. But it is more than likely that your guests’ tastes in music are a lot more varied. Considering you want everyone to feel great at your wedding, creating a playlist that incorporates multiple genres and decades is absolutely crucial.

Every bride wants to look gorgeous in her wedding photos, make sure you know how to make this happen!

Your wedding day is a unique moment in your life – so you will want to capture it in photos that are truly stunning. How to make sure you look drop-dead-gorgeous in your wedding pictures? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Your makeup should emphasize your natural beauty – not overshadow it. So, we suggest you stick to natural shades and techniques, so that you feel really great when shooting for your wedding pictures. Also, try to steer clear of using too much eye shadow – it can have the exact opposite effect of what you are aiming for.
  • To make sure your hair looks gorgeous in the pictures, remember to have it photographed during the trial – and remember to ask the stylist to take pictures from all the angles. This way, you will look really graceful and pretty regardless of where your photographer stands when they shoot the photos.
  • Holding your bouquet. We highly suggest you don’t clutch the bouquet with the arms flat on your side. Instead, hold the bouquet at hip level, with your arms slightly curved away from the body. This will give the impression of a smaller waist and smaller arms – and it will also create a very candid and well-balanced photo as well.
  • The ultimate secret to beauty? Smiling. Smile because this is your Big Day. Smile because you are marrying an amazing man and because you are going through one of the most important and romantic events in your life. Smile for all those people who chose to be there for you on your wedding day! Smile and you will be absolutely fabulous in the pictures!
