Super Fun Wedding Ideas You’ll Want to Steal

Your wedding should shine in uniqueness and beauty – after all, it is one of the most special events of your entire life and it should definitely mirror who you are and what your personality is like. What are the most fun wedding ideas you’ll want to steal? We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

  • – A bit of color. Your wedding dress is supposed to be white (at least in a traditional point of view) – but given that modern weddings are quite permissive, you can definitely add just a bit of color into the mix. A dress with the hems “dipped” in a bright color, or a gown featuring beautiful colorful patterns will look absolutely splendid and timeless!
  • – A glamorous and playful flower girl. Tired of all the flower baskets you’ve seen at every wedding since the beginning of time? Have your flower girl carry a big balloon filled with large bits of glitter – she will look fabulously playful as she announces your own big walk down the aisle!
  • – Paper flowers. Thought only natural flowers can look beautiful? Think again! Paper flowers can look so pretty and they can be so eco-friendly when they are made with recycled materials! Not only can you include them in your bouquet and centerpieces, but you can also create a breathtaking ceremony backdrop made entirely out of recycled paper “blooms”. So unique, and with such a strong message behind the idea!

Don’t Forget to Do These Things on Your Big Day

Your Big Day will be a rollercoaster of emotions, that’s for sure. Regardless of whether you plan on having an ultra-large wedding, or a very small one, there will still be a lot of tasks for you to handle – so it’s perfectly understandable why you might be prone to forget about some of the most important things.

What are the most common such tasks? Well, don’t forget to do these things on your Big Day:

  • – Bring the marriage license. It doesn’t matter how perfectly well lined-up your napkins are, or how amazing your cake looks – if you don’t bring your marriage license to the wedding, it’s all pointless. Make sure you don’t forget this at home if you want everything about your Big Day to be flawlessly…legal (and if you think you are inclined to forget this important document, task your Maid of Honor to remind you of it!).
  • – Make a playlist for the getting ready “party”. You want to start your Big Day energized and filled with hope – so it’s really important to play the right music in the background too. Have some fun with your special ladies and de-stress yourselves by moving on the beat of your favorite tunes!
  • – This may seem really basic – but with so many things to do and so many emotions taking over, eating may feel like the last thing on your list. However, it is absolutely crucial that you have a nice, nutritious breakfast before you leave for the actual wedding: it will give you energy and it will ensure you can get through this big event without fainting or feeling sick.

Don’t Let Wedding Planning Stress You Out

Wedding planning can turn into a pretty stressful experience, especially with all the pressure associated to creating the perfect Big Day. How to make sure you don’t let wedding planning stress you out? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • – First and foremost, remember that you cannot do it all on your own. You are only one person – and no matter how much time and money you can afford putting into the Big Day, you will have to ask for help (at least sooner or later). Your bridesmaids, your Maid of Honor, your mother and father, and your fiancé – they are all there for you and they all want your Big Day to be fabulous.
  • – If you ever feel stress crawling into your life, make sure to take a break. There’s no point in going on and adding even more anxiety on top of the already-existing negative emotions. Take your fiancé and go somewhere nice, take your girls and plan a night out, or simply cuddle under your favorite blanket and watch your Netflix shows. Whatever you do though, keep wedding planning issues away from you – at least for a couple of days.
  • – Last, but definitely not least, don’t be afraid to talk about your feelings. Your fiancé is more than happy to listen – because, after all, communication is at the very foundation of a good relationship – right? Talk about the issues that make you feel stressed out and you will feel instantly better about everything!
