Plan a wonderful honeymoon with these tips

Your wedding is going to be one of the most amazing, unforgettable and incredibly important events in your life. But remember, what comes after it is just as important as the Big Day itself! How do you plan the perfect honeymoon to celebrate your love story? What are the questions you should answer before starting to make calls and appointments?

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

Do you want to travel abroad or stay in your home country or state? There are plenty of travel options in either case, so don’t feel limited. Some people simply don’t want to travel abroad for their honeymoons because they like the psychological comfort a US location can offer – and others want excitement all throughout their wedding days. It’s your call!
Do you want to travel right after the wedding, or wait a little? It is perfectly understandable you want to take some time off everything planning-related after the wedding. Likewise, it is understandable if you cannot leave for your honeymoon right after the wedding because you might have other issues to handle. Decide on what works for you!
Do you want to see a new place, or an old one? Some places have such a powerful meaning for couples that they will always want to return to them. Do you have any such location? If so, do you want to go there for your honeymoon, or do you prefer exploring something completely new? See what suits you most!

Which musical trend will you be following for your big day?

Immensely powerful and incredibly close to our hearts, music can really change everything. It can make you happy and it can add a touch of sentimentalism, it can make things fun and it can make things sophisticated and, ultimately, it can follow you through every single step of your life.
Of course, your wedding music is more than important to you – but what are some of the latest wedding music trends to inspire you? We have some ideas – so read on and find out more.

The string band at the entrance. Want to create a truly sophisticated ambiance at your wedding? Hire a string band to enchant wedding guests right from the moment they step into your venue. This will make everything more elegant, more beautiful and more sentimental as well.
The band and the DJ. If you cannot decide between the two, you are more than free to hire both options – one for the reception and the other one for the ceremony, for example. Doing this will make your wedding even more entertaining and unique.
Classic songs with modern twists. If you want to step down the aisle on Here Comes the Bride, but if you also want to make this moment more contemporary and personal, ask your wedding DJ or band to come up with a modern cover of the classic. This can be done with all traditional songs and it can work the other way around too (having modern songs played in an instrumental, traditional way).

Get creative with your wedding seating

Seating people in the right places is essential for the success of your Big Day – but it is also important to make sure the seating chart blends beautifully with everything else at your wedding. How to create a genuinely unique wedding seating? We have gathered some pretty ideas – so read on and find out more.

Hanging leaves. This is a very simple, but beautifully unique way of showing guests off to their seats. Line up strings (one for each of the tables at your reception) and attach the leaf-shaped escort cards to each of these strings. Simple, special and truly cute – and it works marvelously for a spring wedding, just as much as it does for a fall one (just change the colors of the leaves!).
Mirroring love. Planning a very fancy affair? Mirrors have the almost magical power of reflecting light and making spaces look larger. Plus, a mirror with a vintage or antique-looking frame can also be a great addition to a vintage-themed wedding too. Place the large mirror at the entrance in the reception room with the guests’ names and tables on it and they will surely like the idea.
Flowery touches. If you want your wedding favors to double as escort cards too, think of your favorite potted flowers (and make sure there are as many types of them as wedding tables are). Write guests’ names on a small, beautifully-designed card in the pot and encourage them to take the plant home and help you “grow their love”.  Romantic, eco-friendly and beautiful too!

Sunflowers are a gorgeous choice for your Fall wedding

Fall is here and this means many brides are thinking of their approaching wedding day. Of course, summer may start to be just a memory – but the truth is that a fall wedding can be even more gorgeous, unique and unforgettable than a summer event.

How do sunflowers enter the picture, though? How can you incorporate these lively blooms into your fall wedding? Here are some wonderful ideas to “steal” for your Big Day:

For your bouquet, create a sunflower arrangement that brings together white roses and gerbera daisies too. This combination will look elegant and it will make the beautiful yellow of the sunflowers pop even more joyfully against the white background of the white blooms.
Planning a vintage fall wedding? No worries, sunflowers can still have a well-deserved place in your hands as you walk down the aisle! Combine them with toned-down blooms and just a bit of grey (in the bouquet wrap, for example) and you will create a flawless vintage bouquet everyone will love.
For your centerpieces, think of arrangements inspired by summer, but brought into the fall background. Mums and dahlias are more than perfect for a fall wedding – and they can be superbly combined with sunflowers and wooden elements (e.g. logs to place the centerpieces on).
Want your flower girl’s blooms to match the other sunflower-infused wedding elements? Give her a single sunflower stem – it will make it easier for her to walk down the aisle and it will definitely make her look even cuter and livelier!

The entertainment of your wedding is important!

There’s no doubt over the fact that your wedding is one of the biggest, most life-changing events you’ll ever plan. After all, you don’t get married every day – so it’s perfectly normal to want everything about the Big Day to be flawless, from head to finish.

How do you make sure your wedding entertainment is right on point? Here are some tips to help you make the most out of it.

First of all, decide on the right type of wedding music. For some, bands are the perfect choice, for others DJs are a better option. And then there are people who simply hire both (e.g. a band for the ceremony and a DJ for the reception). Do some research, analyze both options on all sides and decide on that which really fits you as a couple.
Furthermore, remember that it doesn’t matter whether you’re hiring a DJ or a wedding band: communication is still key in both cases. Your wedding band or DJ may be extremely experienced in the art of entertaining people, but if they don’t get to talk to you and get a sense of what you want from them, they can never actually “guess it”.
Last, but surely not least, keep in mind that your wedding DJ or band really wants to know about the songs you want or don’t want at your wedding. As mentioned above, they cannot read minds – so it’s essential that you talk to them and provide them with a list of do’s and don’ts they can follow through with on the Big Day.
