Make the MOST Out of Your Bridal Show Visits

Finding the right wedding vendors is really, really important for the success of your wedding – and that is precisely why bridal shows are so successful among brides. With large numbers of vendors gathered in one place, brides have the opportunity to make multiple decisions over the course of one day alone, without having to run around too much. Now, that is a real time saver for a bride pressured by the upcoming Big Day!

How to make the most out of your bridal show visits? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

 

  • – Plan in advance. Know what you are looking for. The type of vendors you need. The budget you need to follow. The style you want your wedding. The wedding date itself. These are all crucial details that will easily help you sift through the huge number of vendors present at large bridal shows. Make sure you have all these details before leaving home!
  • – Be honest with your comparisons. There’s no way in the world a low-budget florist will ever do work that looks the same as what a luxury florist’s would. But that’s OK and it doesn’t mean you can’t have a splendid wedding using budget-friendly wedding. However, be honest and realistic when making comparisons – apples are apples and oranges are oranges.
  • – Don’t rush through the whole thing. You may be in a rush, but you don’t have to rush the entire experience. Take your time to talk to these people and take notes. Take your time to organize the notes once the bridal show is over. It will pay off!

Don’t Worry about Anything on Your Honeymoon!

Your wedding planning was quite stressful – and that’s totally understandable, given the grandeur, size, and importance of this life event. However, once the Big Day is over, it is time you shut down all negative thoughts about it and head off to your splendid honeymoon!

How to make sure you don’t worry about anything on your honeymoon? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • – Let wedding tasks be wedding tasks. You are not obliged to bring a list of guests with you on your honeymoon and start writing your Thank You letters to them. You are not obliged to do anything wedding related, actually. This is your time to get the relaxation and romanticism you need, so seize every second of it and make for unforgettable memories!
  • – Don’t overthink the weather. Of course, you want your honeymoon to be sunny. However, that’s not something you can control, no matter how much you’d want to. Stop overthinking this – just go there and enjoy your honeymoon no matter how sunny or cloudy it is! There are still a lot of amazing things to do, even when it’s not beach weather outside!
  • – Last, but not least, don’t feel like you have to do something every minute of the vacation. You don’t have to plan every hour of the day and you don’t even have to stick to plans you’ve made already if you don’t really want to. As mentioned before, this should be a time of complete and utter relaxation, not a marathon against the local attractions!

Don’t Forget to Plan Your Beauty Regimen

As a bride, you want to look really gorgeous – and yes, your dress, shoes, and hairstyle will definitely matter a lot in this respect. However, before you jump into choosing a lipstick shade, you should first make sure you put your beauty regimen prep in order – and that you do it well ahead of time.

How to do that? How to plan your beauty regimen? We have some tips for you – continue reading if you want to find out more.

  • – If you have any particular skin issues, make sure you go to a dermatologist. It may seem very early for this, but whatever treatments you may need, they will probably take at least a few months to show results.
  • – Also, if you want to get a laser hair removal, do it about one year ahead as well. Depending on your skin and hair type, this may take up to several months to be a completed process – so you need quite a bit of advance time before the Big Day.
  • – Furthermore, if you want to get your skin professionally exfoliated, start doing this about five months before the wedding date. Again, this is a process that takes a bit of time – plus, you need to minimize any adverse effects chemical peels may have on your skin.
  • – Running regular cleanses (e.g. juice cleanse) can also help you look and feel better. Start doing this about three months before the wedding day – it will definitely show results, both inside and out!

Winter Wedding Peony Alternatives You Just Need to Consider

Having a winter wedding is a fantastic choice – but it can sometimes turn against you if you realize a lot of your wedding dreams are actually very spring-like. What happens, then? How to find a compromise solution to make sure you have both the winter wonderland wedding you want so much and the stunning peonies you’ve dreamed of ever since you were 12?

We have some winter wedding peony alternatives you just need to consider – so read on and find out more.

  • – Technically, they are a fall flower – but you’ll find them well into winter as well. They are lovely and sweet, they add romance and richness to any bouquet, and if you don’t want them as standalone “players” in your arrangements, you can always combine them with a few stems of peonies (it will still be less expensive this way).
  • – David Austen roses. English roses, heritage roses and Juliet roses are known under the umbrella term of “David Austen” roses. They come in the same beautiful variety of colors as classic roses, they have the same richness and generosity as peonies, but they are way more available during the winter months (they bloom between October and May). Perfect choice, right?
  • – Double flowering tulips. These flowers are an excellent option for brides who value uniqueness and sophistication at the same time! They have something simply elegant, just like normal tulips do, but their double flowering nature adds luxuriousness to each flower stem. Plus, they’re available until November and later, so you can definitely find them for your cool season Big Day.

Essential Tips for Finding Your Wedding Season

Your wedding season dictates a wide range of wedding elements – from the décor, to the cake and the food you serve your guests with. Of course you want to choose a wedding season that suits you from all points of view!

What are the essential tips for finding your wedding season? We have some tips for you – continue reading to find out more.

  • – Meaningfulness and/or preference. If you have a season that means a lot to you as a couple, settle for it, you won’t regret it. If you have a favorite season in general, go for it, even if it’s not the traditional choice (it will be more representative of who you are and what you love!).
  • – Wedding style and theme. Do you have a particular wedding theme in mind? If so, make sure you choose a wedding season that suits your wedding theme. While not impossible, it could be very difficult to plan an outdoor wedding in late November, for example.
  • – Wedding attire. If you are among the brides who are already very specific about the type of dress you want to wear, be sure your wedding season is suitable for it. A thin, lace-y wedding gown that ends just above the calves of your feet is very chic – but wearing just that in December might make you suffer on your honeymoon…
  • – Do you have a smaller budget? That’s fine, you can still have a dreamy wedding – but you will have to be quite careful with all the decisions you make, including that of the season. The more “in season” (summer or spring) your wedding is, the more expensive the venue and vendors will be as well.
