5 Gorgeous Rose Bouquet Ideas for Your Wedding

Your bridal bouquet reflects your own personality and style – so you will surely want to make sure you choose a stunning one. Of course, there are a lot of blooms that take center stage when it comes to bridal bouquets – but the truth is that none are as popular, as widely appreciated, and as well-suited as roses.

How to incorporate them in beautiful, modern bouquets? Here are some gorgeous rose bouquet ideas for your wedding;

  • – A classic pink and red bouquet. Looking for the classic romanticism of red roses? Combine them with pink varieties for a dash of variety and your bouquet will look more than perfect.
  • – White on…almost white. Another classic way of incorporating roses in your bridal bouquet is by keeping them pure and white. For example, a bouquet made with white and cream-colored blooms is meant to speak about elegance and timelessness.
  • – Sunset-colored. Want to make your bouquet stand out on a beautiful summer day? Ask your florist to create an arrangement with warm sunset-colored roses. It will look so beautiful and comforting!
  • – Princess-pastels. A bouquet made with pastel-colored roses is bound to look suave, feminine, and almost fairytale-like. Such a lovely option for a bride who wants an elegant bouquet to accompany her down the aisle!
  • – Dark and mysterious. Combining darker shades of mauve with yellow and dust blush can result in a fabulous bouquet. Ideal for the bride who wants to make a real statement with her bouquet!

Does the Ring Bearer Have to Carry the Rings Down the Aisle?

Having a ring bearer is an adorable addition to just about every wedding out there. However, doing this can come with a lot of nervousness as well – will the ring bearer have to carry the rings down the aisle?

We have some of the answers you are looking for – so read on and find out more.

  • – No, he doesn’t. If your ring bearer is very young, it is perfectly understandable if you are nervous about him losing the rings. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to skip the ring bearer tradition altogether.
  • – The best way to do this is by having the ring bearer walk down with a simple, pretty ring pillow, but making sure the actual rings are in your Best Man’s pockets. This way, you will get the cuteness of the little boy walking down the aisle without the risks associated with it.
  • – If the ring bearer is a bit older, he can definitely carry the rings on his own. Still, it is a good idea to tie down the rings to the pillow to prevent them from slipping away. If you want the rings to be even more secure, you can place them in a pouch (so that you don’t have to search for very small items in case they slip away).
  • – If you opt for the last option, make sure to ask your photographer to shoot some pictures of the wedding ring pillow and rings before you tuck them away!

Ways to Wear Florals in Your Wedding That Don’t Involve a Crown

Flowers have always been and will always be an incredibly important (and beautiful) part of a wedding – and your own Big Day makes no exception whatsoever. Of course, you will want splendid flower arrangements at the ceremony and a gorgeous bouquet to accompany you down the aisle – but how to wear flowers in your wedding in ways that don’t involve a crown? We have some inspiring ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

  • – You can still wear them in your hair. If you are tired of the overly-used flower crown, but still love the look of wearing flowers in your hair, learn that you can definitely incorporate your favorite blooms and your hairstyle together. For instance, weaving flowers in your hair or in your up-do will look absolutely breathtaking!
  • – On your wedding veil. Given that this is one of the most important accessories (most) brides wear on their wedding day, it comes as a natural choice to beautify it as well. Incorporate pretty flowers in your wedding veil and it will look livelier, more unique, and more personal as well.
  • – As jewelry. Silver? Platinum? How about splendid creations of Mother Nature? Flowers can be gorgeously transformed into artsy, personalized pieces of jewelry – so if you want a necklace that really makes a statement, an anklet bracelet that sends you back to a 90s beach party or a wedding dress sash that emphasizes your curves in a genuinely original way, flowers are the answer you are looking for.

 

And if you are still looking for a wedding venue in Savannah, be sure to visit us, at The Mackey House. Lovely and elegant, our wedding venue is surrounded by history and natural beauties – and it will definitely make your Big Day feel all the more fantastic. Come visit us and convince yourself too!

Wedding Dress Rental: To Do or Not to Do?

Like most of the brides out there, you want to feel stunning in your wedding dress. Does that mean you absolutely have to buy it, though? If you are considering a wedding dress rental option, make sure to read on and find out more about this, because we have gathered the fundamentals you should keep in mind before you make a decision.

  • – The main reason to rent your wedding dress is because it is a lot less expensive. We all know how tremendously pricy wedding gowns can be – and given that you will only be wearing it for a day, you might want to rent it instead of actually buying it.
  • – Furthermore, you can get a splendid designer wedding dress for a really small fraction of its original price – so if you don’t have a very generous budget, this is a compromise solution you will definitely agree with.
  • – Of course, wedding rentals sometimes come with an extra-cost – so it is essential that you are aware of this as well. Even the smallest wine stain on your wedding gown may attract extra charges, so be very attentive while wearing it!
  • – Last, but not least, it is definitely worth reminding that you cannot actually keep your wedding dress if you rent it. For some brides, this is perfectly fine (and quite an advantage, especially for those of you worried about storing the wedding gown). For others though, it may be a complete turn-off (especially if you want to keep it as a heirloom).

Challenges for Spring Brides

Being a spring bride is not as easy as it may feel at first. Of course, you have a million reasons to love this season for your big day – from the fact that it’s full of positivity, to the fact that prices tend to be lower than during the summertime.

Yet, what are some of the challenges for spring brides you should be aware of? We have gathered some of them below – so read on and be prepared.

 

  • – Annoying insects will come to life. Unfortunately, spring is not all about blooming trees, but about bringing insects back to life too. If you want to avoid mosquito bites, prepare some insect repellents for you and your guests to use.
  • – The temperatures will be quite pleasant during daytime, but they will most likely decrease in the evening – so if you plan on having an outdoor wedding, it would be best if you rented some heat lanterns too, so that everyone is fully comfortable.
  • – Although you do stand a very good chance of having a sunny wedding day, it is also very important to be prepared for an April shower too. If you want an outdoor wedding, please make sure to have a tent or an indoor option planned ahead, so that rain doesn’t ruin the most important day of your life.
  • – Last, but not least, do not let (previous) rainy days ruin your wedding dress either. Even if it’s sunny on your big day, you should be careful not to step in mud or in a puddle. Ask your Maid of Honor to help you carry the train of the dress whenever you go outside, so that you don’t stain it.
