  • – Sparklers for the exit. Forget about the all-too-traditional rice toss for your ceremony exit! Give your guests fun sparklers to light up as you exit and you will surely feel like the Queen and King of your own wedding day!
  • – Champagne for favors. If you want your wedding favors to be perfectly suitable for the amazing theme you have chosen, offer guests mini bottles of champagne. They will be more than appreciative!
  • – DIY party supplies bar. Arrange a special “bar” where your guests can mix their own confetti, sparklers and party supplies. This will be a fun way to invite all of them to celebrate the big “12 o’clock”.
  • – Clocks. Decorate your venue with clocks to remind guests of the approaching New Year. For example, you could incorporate a clock in each wedding table centerpiece – and it will surely look amazing.
  • – Glamorous cake. Be sure to create a wedding cake design that’s really suitable for the New Year’s Eve too! Cover your cake in glitter and/or metallic shades and it will look absolutely stunning!
  • – Sparkly shoes. Add a bit of glam to your own look too! Instead of the classic white shoes, wear a pair that will really help you “walk” into the New Year in grand style!
  • – Metallics for the bridesmaids. Make sure your bridesmaids are dressed up to the occasion by choosing dresses in metallic shades. They don’t have to be of the same color – as long as there’s something to “unify” them (such as the fact that they are all metallic and glamorous), your bridesmaids will look really beautiful!

5 Fun Ways to Personalize the Groom’s Boutonniere

Your bridal look is definitely important to you – but so is the look of your future groom as well. After all, you both want to feel absolutely amazing on your wedding day – and your appearance can play a hugely important role in this.

One of the details you will definitely have to pay attention to is how your Groom’s boutonniere is designed. If you are looking for some fun ways to personalize the groom’s boutonniere, you have come to the right place, because we have gathered 5 of the most unique ideas to inspire you. Read on and find out more!


  • – Be childish. If your groom is still a kid at heart and if he likes geeky toys (such as Lego figurines), you can allow him to show off his personality and passions with his boutonniere. Greenery, some flowers and a toy can really make your groom’s look pop!
  • – Be vintage. Planning a vintage-themed wedding? Match your groom’s boutonniere with the wedding theme by accessorizing him with a gorgeous vintage watch instead of the classic flowery boutonniere. It will look so stylish!
  • – Be sentimental. If your groom’s mother has a brooch she would have wanted her daughter to wear on her wedding day, you can beautifully incorporate it into his boutonniere. You only need the brooch and a pretty flower and it will already look gorgeous!
  • – Be artsy. Is your groom the kind who loves great art? Include it in his boutonniere with a beautiful miniature painting or drawing embraced by flowers and greenery. Great-looking and unique!
  • – Be glamorous. Your groom can be glamorous too – and no, he doesn’t have to wear a shiny tux for that. A beautifully chosen boutonniere with golden or silver accents will be really stylish and will perfectly complement your look and your wedding style.

Get the Look of Sofia Vergara’s Zuhair Murad Wedding Dress

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello got married – and it was absolutely amazing! The couple got engaged on Christmas last year and got married last week in Palm Beach. From the fun #Jofia hashatg to the amazingly good-looking tux Joe chose to wear on his wedding day, all the details of this fabulous wedding are already public – so we couldn’t be anything but excited for the two and for the amazing event they put together.


Of course, beautiful Sofia’s Zuhair Murad wedding dress could not have passed unnoticed – and we can all agree that it was one of the most beautiful wedding gowns we have seen recently. If you want to get the look of Sofia Vergara’s Zuhair Murad wedding dress, take a look at the following tips and inspire yourself:

  • – Lace or embroidery. To look like Sofia on her wedding day, your dress should definitely have an abundance of lace and/or embroidery details. If you don’t want the entire dress to be covered in lace (like Sofia’s was), you can settle on something simpler that has lace only on some parts of the dress (such as the middle section, for example).
  • – Long train. Sofia’s wedding gown was gorgeous from many points of view – and the beautiful train is definitely one of them. Choose a dress with a longer train in the back to get the same stunning look that’s meant to take one’s breath away!
  • – Sweetheart neckline. This type of neckline has the great ability to make your chest look beautiful and feminine and it works great for women who want to emphasize on that area of their bodies. Sofia Vergara’s wedding dress featured this precise type of neckline, so if you want to steal the look, this might be one of the things to consider.
