Before the wedding comes the bridal shower, be sure it is planned just right!

Your friend’s bridal shower is very important to her – and you surely want her to be truly happy at this essential pre-wedding event. How to make sure you plan a bridal shower both the bride and the guests will love? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

Take the initiative to plan the bridal shower, especially if you know for sure nobody else has done it already. However, don’t feel obliged to plan everything on your own. In fact, engaging other bridesmaids or relatives of the bride is always a good idea, as the tasks will be split among everyone.
Don’t forget to check with the bride’s schedule, as well as with her VIPs’ schedule too. In general, bridal showers are planned quite early on, but this depends a lot on the bride and the guests too.
Speaking of the guests, don’t forget to ask the bride for her guest list. This way, you know for sure whom to invite – and you don’t risk making the mistake of inviting someone who isn’t invited to the actual wedding.
Also, don’t forget to offer people guidance for the gifts. You want the bride to be truly happy with everything about her shower – and making sure she receives gifts she wants and needs can be a very important part of this.
Last, but not least, plan some fun group activities, but always make sure you choose activities that would not make the bride feel uncomfortable. And do not make the shower schedule too strict or too crammed with activities – these things tend to ruin a party, as everyone will focus more on checking items on the “to do list”, rather than having fun.

Choose your wedding cake shape first before deciding on a style!

Your wedding cake is an essential part of the big day. And while all the details on it should be carefully-chosen, it is also very important that you start from the very foundation of your wedding dessert: its shape.

How to choose the best wedding cake shape to suit your wedding style and your personality? We have some tips for you – so read on if you want to find out more.

The round cake. This is the absolute classic of wedding cakes – so if you plan on having an elegant, traditional and timeless wedding, it will be the perfect choice. Sure, some of you may think a round cake is plain and dull – but if you think of it, the round shape provides you with the best “canvas” for your unique ideas, so you should definitely not rule out the option.
The petal-shaped cake. Sophisticated, elegant and beautiful, petal-shaped cakes can be tricky to “play” with because their shape is already quite intricate. However, if you are attentive with just how many details you use for the cake d├ęcor, this can be a truly gorgeous choice!
The square-shaped cake. With its avant-garde “feel” and its urban touch, the square-shaped cake is quite a lot of fun – despite its rigid form. The key here is to soften up the edges by choosing a delicate design for the decorations, so that you out the “roughness” and the “gentleness” in a really beautiful way.

Don’t play these inappropriate wedding songs at your wedding!

We cannot emphasize this enough: your wedding music is absolutely crucial for the success of the Big Day. And while it is definitely important to make sure you talk to your DJ about the songs you do want at your wedding, it is also essential that you take into consideration the songs that you don’t want him to play at your wedding. Of course, this “don’t” playlist will include songs you don’t like or that remind you of bad memories – but it should also include songs that are simply inappropriate for weddings.

What are some of these songs? We have some suggestions for you – so read on and find out more.
The Police’s Every Breath You Take. OK, it may have been catchy a few (many) years ago, but these days, this song sounds more like the “stalker’s anthem” than a romantic song. We suggest you take this off your playlist if you want to avoid your guests’ giggles at the sound of this completely inappropriate song.
Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On. Anyone who grew up (or was a teenager) in the late 90s knows this song by heart. And while our hearts will always go on with Celine’s masterpiece, the truth is that this is a complete no-no for your wedding day. Why? The story associated with it is simply too sad.
Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You. No. Just don’t. This is a break-up song and if you listen to the lyrics carefully, you will hear it. Your wedding should be all about happy moments and big hopes – not “bittersweet memories” as “all you’re taking with you”.

With so many types of wedding ceremony sites, how do you choose yours?

Your wedding ceremony is one of the most unforgettable, candid and truly magical moments of your life. Naturally, you want to choose a ceremony site that’s truly suitable for you and who you are as a couple – but how do you do that? What are some of the main criteria to consider when choosing the right wedding ceremony? Read on and find out more.

Price. Not all wedding ceremonies will require you to pay a fee – but those who don’t, will expect you to make a donation (e.g. if you choose to have your ceremony in a church, for example). Do make sure the fee (or the donation) falls within your wedding budget.
Closeness to the reception venue. You don’t want to waste a lot of time moving from the ceremony site to the reception venue – so make sure to choose a site that’s as close as possible to the reception venue.
General ambiance and light. Your wedding ceremony should be peaceful and quiet – and its natural light should feel flattering and beautiful. Take a close look at these details, so that you make sure you’ll have a fantastic wedding ceremony.
Amenities. Even if you choose to get married at a really rustic ceremony site, you will still want to make sure your guests are fully comfortable. Make sure there’s enough shade for them, see if the site offers restrooms and analyze all the details meant to make your guests really comfortable throughout your wedding ceremony.
