Every bride wants to plan an unforgettable wedding day and here are 5 unique ideas that might be great for your wedding. Keeping the Kids Entertained Children can be super cute at weddings. They’re all dressed up and they bust out all the moves on the dance floor – they instantly entertain and make people smile. Except, children also have short attention spans and sitting down for long periods of time and being quiet can cause boredom.

How to Stick to Your Wedding Budget



How to Stick to Your Wedding Budget

How to Stick to Your Wedding Budget

Almost every couple planning a wedding has a budget of some sort. Here are a few tips on how to plan a wedding budget and – more importantly – how to stick to it. Start how you mean to go on It’s important to know exactly what your budget is before you start planning. Work out what you can afford and think about your savings. Remember that many vendors will ask to be paid well in advance of the wedding. Even if you think you can save a certain amount by your wedding date, you’re likely to need the money far earlier than that. If you have generous family members who are willing to contribute to your wedding, remember to take this into account too. When you know how much money you have in total, allocate mini-budgets across the different aspects of your wedding, such as venue, catering and wedding attire. Make room in your budget for the unexpected No matter how thoroughly you plan your budget, there are likely to be costs that you’ve not considered. Use Google, Pinterest and magazines to research wedding budgets and help you form as comprehensive a budget as possible. Prepare to be flexible You’ve distributed your budget across your various wedding expenditures based on how you think you’ll spend it. However, you’re very unlikely to stick to this hard and fast. Be prepared to shift your budget around depending on your actual spends. For example, if you want a wedding dress that’s over budget, simply tweak your allocations and reduce the budget for something else, such as your wedding bouquet or shoes.... Read more...

Wedding Themes for Your Big Day



Wedding Themes for Your Big Day

Wedding Themes for Your Big Day

A wedding theme can have a big impact on the overall atmosphere of your wedding day. Whether you choose a quirky wedding theme or something more subtle, a wedding theme is fun to plan and can show off your personality as a couple. Bold wedding themes If you and your partner are passionate about a particular film, book series or era, why not use it as a basis for your wedding plans? Popular options are Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Disney themes. Get creative and tailor all aspects of your wedding to your theme. Design custom invites, decorations and favours for your guests. Choose wedding attire to fit in with your theme. If you want to execute a quirky wedding theme more subtly, style it in the details and accessories instead. For example, rather than choosing a whole outfit based on your theme, just choose themed socks or jewellery. Subtle wedding themes More subtle themes are those that give your wedding a romantic, elegant feel (which many couples opt for even without a theme). For example, choose a fairytale, 1920s or Great Gatsby theme. With a fairytale theme, think horse-drawn carriages, ballgown dresses and romantic decorations. A 1920s or Great Gatsby theme could encompass over-the-top decorations with glitter, feathers and lots of champagne. Classic wedding themes Your wedding theme can be as simple as a colour scheme or overall style. For example, choose a rustic theme with a pastel colour palette and you’ve got yourself a classic, romantic wedding theme.
