How to Shop for the Perfect Maternity Wedding Gown


Traditionally, weddings come first – but the truth is that old-school customs don’t carry the same importance as they used to. If your baby bump and your big “I Do” come together, there’s absolutely no reason in the world to worry! In fact, you should rejoice because, unlike most of the people out there, you are experiencing two of the happiest moments of your life together! 

Shopping for a maternity wedding gown can be quite tricky. However, you will definitely find the one if you keep in mind the following tips: 

Generally speaking, maternity wedding gowns are made out of a special stretch fabric that will grow with your baby bump. Therefore, you will need to order your pre-pregnancy size and then simply allow the dress to grow with your beautiful baby. This way, no matter how big your belly will be on your wedding day, your gown will still be perfectly fitting! 

If you don’t want to wear a dress made out of stretch fabric, you can always go for the more “traditional” versions: chiffon, veil and so on. Because these fabrics will not stretch on your baby bump, it is extremely important to choose the perfect moment to order your gown. As a general rule of thumb, specialists advise brides-to-be to never order their maternity wedding dresses more than 12 weeks in advance. 

Aside from the two tips mentioned above, you should also keep in mind that there’s no need to stress over the fact that you may not be able to find a beautifully designed dress. Nowadays, maternity wedding gowns are just as splendid as all the dresses out there and they will come in a very wide variety of stunning designs. 

To make sure your baby grows healthy and happy inside of you, make sure not to stress out too much about planning the big day. Wedding Planner 808 can help by providing you exquisite wedding planning services that will definitely make your life much easier. Contact us and allow us to take care of your wedding day!

How to Overcome Your Wedding Day Fears


Like most of the ladies out there, you have been dreaming of this moment for a long, long time now. But now that your big day is approaching, you probably feel that you are overwhelmed by fears of all kinds. Will your wedding turn out the way you want it? Is the dress properly fitting your body? Will your mother-in-law have something against something related to your wedding?

Anxiety is something completely normal when it comes to weddings. After all, this is a huge step in your life and it will change it forever. But that doesn't mean that you should allow all these fears to steal your enjoyment. We have gathered some tips on how to get rid of all these negative feelings, so that you can truly be happy about this big day!

Stop worrying. Truth be told, getting rid of your fears starts with not worrying. Stop worrying about your mother-in-law, about the forks on the table and about that one bow that doesn't look perfect on your flower girl’s dress. Even with these minor “accidents”, your wedding will still be amazing!

Remember why you’re doing this. You are making this step because you want to spend the rest of your life with the person you love. Sure, the big party is a great way to start your new life, but don’t forget the essence behind it: love and commitment. 

Take a break. When wedding planning gets rough, simply take a break. Go to a spa, run a bit, dance around your house, watch a nice movie, take a long bath or simply do something nice for you. Trust us, these little things actually help! 

Wedding Planner 808 can help you overcome your wedding-related fears. We have years of experience in the wedding planning industry and we actually know how to make things go smoothly. Contact us and your anxiety will be just a bad memory!

Create a signature drink that your guests won’t forget! Here are some ideas:


Your big wedding day. The big “I Do”. The moment you’ve been dreaming of ever since you were a little girl. There are so many things associated with weddings and the wide range of beautiful feelings they stir in people that words are simply not enough to describe.

And yet, if you had to describe your idea of a good wedding in only one word, that would definitely be... “Perfect”. Yes, you want your wedding day to be perfect – and that’s perfectly normal! And being unique is definitely part of your idea of “perfection” as well.

Creating signature drinks for your wedding will add some personality and originality to the reception itself – and it will definitely impress your guests as well. If you don’t know yet what kind of signature drinks to go for, here are some ideas that may help you out:

Don’t be afraid to be daring. In fact, that’s everything signature drinks are all about: unusual combinations that work greatly together. Apple juice and martini? That may not have been your go-to drink when hanging out with your friends, but the truth is that it can actually make for a great cocktail – especially for fall weddings!

Forget about orange juice and tomato juice and start thinking of fruits that are more original than that. For instance, have you ever thought of how a cocktail containing plum juice would taste like? Hint: it does taste great, especially when mixed with some vodka. 

Color and playfulness! Keep those two words in mind and you’ll be able to create the most amazing drinks your guests have ever tasted! 

Think of the small details and allow us to see if the large picture looks good as well. Here at Wedding Planner 808, we have dedicated our time to making sure that each and every wedding we plan turns out magical! Contact us for your own fairy tale wedding too!

Tips to help keep your guests entertained at your sober wedding


Your wedding is a happy moment – and not just for you, but for everyone invited as well. Therefore, you will definitely want to make sure everyone has the time of their lives and that they really enjoy being there for you on such a big day. 

Some of you may choose to go for a non-alcoholic wedding, but that should not mean that your guests will not be entertained! On the contrary, actually! There are many ways in which your guests can feel absolutely amazing even if you choose not to serve alcoholic beverages at your reception. 

Here are some of the best ideas out there: 

Great music. The number one entertainment source at every wedding is not alcohol, but music. Bring in an amazing DJ or band and make sure they will play or mix songs everyone loves so that every guest dances at least to one or two songs. 

Tasty non-alcoholic drinks. You don’t have to serve water and soda only if you are having a sober wedding. There are many spectacular non-alcoholic drinks out there too – you just have to use your creativity a bit. 

An entertainer or a comedian. There are many entertainers who perform at weddings too, so why not bring one in to cheer up the crowd? From stand-up comedians to illusionists, you are allowed to go for whatever you feel that would entertain your guests best. 

Photo booth. Having a photo booth at your wedding is a sure way to get some real fun pictures. Everyone will love the idea and they will all want to shoot some pictures in the photo booth! 

Games. There are tons of games that can be played at your wedding. Use your imagination and you’ll find amazing ways to keep your guests more than entertained even if you are not serving them alcohol! 

Regardless of the type of wedding you choose to have – alcoholic or not – Wedding Planner 808 can be there for you to make sure every single thing is in its right place. We can help you create that happy-ending movie wedding you’ve been dreaming about ever since you were a kid!
