Make yourself aware of what wedding cake vendors wish you knew:

Your wedding cake is most definitely one of the most important parts of the wedding day. Not only will be everyone looking forward for the sweet treat, but the cutting of the cake (and the dessert itself) is a very powerful symbol for your love story.

What are some of the things wedding cake vendors wish you knew about choosing the perfect cake, though? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

100% imitation may not be possible. All those amazing ideas on Pinterest are, indeed, a great source of inspiration. However, pay in mind that not all cake chefs can imitate to perfection those ideas (they may lack the tools, or their style may be completely different). You can get a cake that’s similar to what you found on the Internet – but it may not be exactly the same.
Your cake should definitely be large enough to serve all your guests. One-tier cakes are really trendy right now – but if you plan on having a large wedding, with more than 200 guests, make sure you either have five one-tier cakes or that you have a five-tier one. This will be enough to serve everyone with a delicious slice of sweet treat.
Last, but definitely not least, be extra-attentive if you plan on having a summer outdoor wedding. Most cake frostings don’t do well in high heat (including buttercream and fondant) - so you should keep your cake cool, indoors, until you are about to cut it. This way, you will be able to serve guests with cake that looks and tastes amazing.

When planning on getting to and from your wedding, be sure you have the best mode of transportation!

Your wedding is a spectacular moment – so it’s only natural that you want to make for an equally fantastic entrance and for a glamorous exit as well. How to do that? What are some of the best modes of transportation to consider? We have some tips for you – so read on if you are on the lookout for ideas.

A limousine. Of course, this is an absolute classic for weddings and other life-changing moments. Yet, there is a very good reason people still love it: a limo can really make you feel like a true VIP. What’s more, renting a limousine will not cost as much as you may believe and you will get a lot of satisfaction out of your money precisely because this vehicle will put you in a “fabulous mood” both before and after the wedding.
A party bus. If you and your future spouse are the kind of people who really enjoy a good party, why not use a party bus as your mode of transportation? Not only will this be unique, but it is a wonderful opportunity to invite your wedding party with you too – so that they feel equally important as you do.
A vintage or retro car. Planning a wedding inspired by the past decades? If so, make sure your wedding day transportation fits in your wedding theme. There’s a myriad of vintage and retro car options you can rent for the wedding – so you should not feel afraid you’re out of options in any way.

Follow these trends to create a beautiful bouquet!

Flowers and weddings have always been very tightly connected to each other – and understandably so. Delicate, romantic and beautiful, the right flowers can complement a wedding’s décor like nothing else can – so it is highly important to choose the types of flowers that suit you and who you are as a couple.

Obviously, your bouquet is the most crucial flower element of the Big Day – but what are some of the latest trend in the floral world? What bouquets are 2016 brides falling in love with? We have some ideas for you – so if inspiration is what you’re searching for, you have come to the right place. 

Plenty of greens. Of course, blooming bouquets will never go out of style. But this year, more and more brides are incorporating larger amounts of greenery and foliage into their bouquets (to the point where they are entirely green). Use this trend to create a whimsical and vibrant bouquet, to save money and to be an eco-conscious bride! You will love it!
From the local flower shop. Gone are the days when ordering over-priced flowers from across the border was the it thing to do for the Big Day. Nowadays, brides are taking the practical route, sticking with flowers “made at home”. Local and seasonal flowers can be fresher, they can definitely be cheaper and they can also add a personal touch to one’s wedding – so why not choose them? 
Vintage is timeless. Yes, we’re still madly in love with vintage weddings – and bouquets make no exception from this. A bouquet made with old-school chrysanthemums or dahlias, wrapped in a rich, luxurious piece of fabric – oh, that’s truly romantic for every type of bride, even for one who’s not planning on the most vintage wedding ever!

Allow these wedding hacks to assist you when planning your big day!

Your wedding deserves to be absolutely splendid! YOU deserve to have a wedding that reflects you and your love story from all points of view!

But what happens when the venue you have chosen for the Big Day is not exactly as you have always wanted it to be? What happens when certain elements of your wedding décor concept simply don’t fit well with the venue itself?

We have gathered some useful wedding hacks to help you with this – so read on and find out more.

The venue’s colors go against your wedding color scheme. This one can be quite harsh on a bride who wants her Big Day’s “look” to be perfectly coordinated – but don’t worry! The solution to this is to embrace the venue’s colors by matching them with small details in other elements of the décor (the drapes with the napkins, for example).
The wedding’s floor pattern doesn’t suit you. If you have a bit of extra-budget to play up on, you can definitely solve this one very easily, by bringing in another carpet and rolling it over the original one. If you cannot afford doing this, think of it this way: most of the carpet’s surface will be covered by tables, chairs, the stage, the dance floor, and so on. Therefore, it will not be as noticeable and you can simply draw the attention towards the ceiling.
The chairs are not what you wanted. Again, this is easy to solve by simply renting out new chairs. If that is not possible due to budget constraints, rent at least a few chairs and place them in those areas that draw the most attention. It doesn’t sound like it, but it can surely make a huge difference!

Wedding Planner 808 can help you plan a superb Hawaii wedding, surrounded by all those who are dear to you. Come visit us, take a look at the services we offer and we will make sure your Big Day is truly amazing!

Have a great time getting ready with your bridesmaids on your big day!

You and your bridesmaids have a really special relationship. After all, this is precisely why you have chosen them to be your attendants on the big day, right? How to make sure both you and your special ladies have fun when getting ready for the wedding, though?

We have gathered some ideas that will give your “Getting Ready” session a dash of uniqueness and magic – so read on, find out more and inspire yourself to create some unforgettable moments with your bridesmaids.

Matching bathrobes. Want to pamper your friends with a really special gift? Offer them matching silk bathrobes. They look gorgeous, they are the kind of item the bridesmaids will want to wear again with no doubt and they will appear amazing in the pictures too.
Simple tank tops…with a touch of femininity. If you want something simple and beautiful to wear as you are all getting ready, buy simple tank tops for you and your bridesmaids. Add a small bow to each of the tops and wear these as you are shooting your “Getting Ready” photos. It will look adorable and fun!
Personalized makeup bags. Create some special makeup bags for your bridesmaids and they will love the idea! It doesn’t have to be something too expensive or fancy – an elegant makeup bag with your monogram will surely look amazing!
Custom hangers. You want your bridesmaids’ dresses to look flawless for the big day – so why not create some custom hangers with their names (or simply “bridesmaid”)? It will make for a really beautiful picture and it will also be a nice memory your bridesmaids will have from your wedding.
