Tips to Help You Get Your Wedding Style on Point

With so many ideas online and posts that deal with unique ideas and inspirations for a wedding day, the whole process of organization and planning can get overwhelming and you can feel torn between too many different options. Therefore, before you start looking for inspiration elsewhere, take the time to discuss things with your future spouse so that you can make this wedding truly personal and exceptional.


Theme brainstorm

What is cool and meaningful for some people doesn’t have to be for others. This day should be all about the two of you. Therefore, there’s no point in admiring the themes other people used for their own wedding. Instead, make sure to sit down together and think of meaningful and heart-warming themes that represent your particular relationship. You’ll definitely have something special in mind. And as long as it is special to you, that’s all that matters.



Perfect place to say “I do”

Similarly to choosing the best theme for this important day in your lives, you should discuss possible wedding venues. If you don’t want to go out of your way, there are some truly gorgeous wedding venues available, but you can also take some important places for the two of you into consideration. You might not be aware, but even pubs, clubs, parks, libraries, museums and similar places can be booked for an unforgettable wedding ceremony. Of course, remember to consult your wedding guest list in order to opt for the best venue possible.


Take time to find THE dress/suit

While a groom-to-be probably won’t have that much problem to find the perfect suit, a bride’s dress on the other hand can be quite a challenge. Unless you want to wear matching outfits, which would require the service of a great tailor, you should definitely be patient in your dress search. In that respect, it would be wise to start your search a few months before the wedding. That way, you’ll be able to carefully inspect your options and don’t settle for a dress that simply doesn’t have that something special that you are looking for.


Tend to the feast

Food and drinks are also a big part of the wedding day. The way the menu will be presented can also significantly contribute to your specific wedding styling, which doesn’t only mean the choice of foods and drinks but their delivery as well. In that respect, you’d definitely want to include some professional wedding catering service. Of course, don’t leave everything for someone else to decide. Even though you won’t be the cook, catering services still need to meet your demands and you should freely give your own opinion when it comes to certain details, or even the whole menu.


Final details

Only when you have the general theme, venue and refreshments worked out, should you check out the Internet for help. That way, you can use the ideas and details in order to complete the whole wedding arrangement so that they can fit with what you two originally imagined and decided on. Even though these are just the finishing touches, you might want to incorporate a lot of them, which can take some time, so start finalizing things at least a month before the big day.



As long as you follow your own ideals and use your own personal story as a guide, you’ll be able to find your perfect wedding style. Of course, you can always ask someone else for advice, but in the end, it’s essential that you are the ones to make the final decision. After all, this is the day that will celebrate the unique love that you two share.


Wedding Ceremony 101

Planning a wedding can be really stressful. You have to juggle with all the tasks on the to-do list and make sure they are all done impeccably. Among many questions you will have to answer are the type, the place and the performer of the ceremony. Will you have a religious or a civil ceremony? Will you wed in a church or some other religious place? Will it be in a meeting room or outside? Who will be your officiant? Those are the questions that demand thorough consideration from you and your partner. Still, there are some elements that are applicable no matter the different choices regarding the ceremony. Here, we will guide you through them.


Give Your Welcome

Your guests are an essential part of the wedding ceremony, and they deserve a nice welcome. If you have guests from out of town, arrange airport/bus stations pick-ups and drop-offs, and discounts for hotel rooms. Consider how you will decorate the space where the guests will go in. Bad first impressions are very hard to forget. Place DIY signposts and welcoming signs. Give the guests welcoming bags/buckets containing small but cute things, such as candy bars, magazines, photos, letters, etc.



Making an entrance is the key of every wedding ceremony. The groom, the best man and groomsmen usually wait with the officiant for the lady of the day to go in. The honored guests are seated, and here comes the bride. Or not? Well, the traditional ceremony requires following order: ring bearer in an adorable mini groom suit if possible, bridesmaids and maid of honor (matching dresses) and adorable flower girl with rose petals or a vintage sign announcing the bride. If traditional mini-me style of the flower girl is not your cup of tea, there are many modern flower girl dresses to choose from.

Telling the Story

Now comes one of the most emotional parts of the ceremony – telling the story about the couple. It is a big deal that you have decided to spend your whole life together and to share that decision with your guests. That is why it is important to tell them why. Your officant can recount the story how you described it. You can also include a reading where you and your partner will read a piece that you think speaks about your relationship.


Wedding Vows

Sometimes, it is enough to say “I do” and take the ring. You can include more traditional vows that you will repeat after officiant. Still, having in mind that you are about to step into unity that will last as long as you both shall live, it would be more personal and romantic to read your own vows. Here, we do not mean to find examples on the web and redo them, but really think of your own, from the hearth. One ordinary word of a loved one is worth more than thousand pages of poetry from a stranger. Still, you can use some famous love quotes to get you started.

By now you are probably pronounced man and wife. If you have some post-declaration ritual (breaking of the glass, jumping of the broom, etc) this is about the time to do it, so the party could get started. Do not forget to allow the photographer to capture your triumphant smiles while starting your own happily-ever-after. Congratulations!


Why Wedding Garter Is A Rage?

How well are your planned for your upcoming wedding? Counting the wedding dress, the veil, and sandals you bought may just not be all. Garteris one of the oldest wedding accessories you must get it for yourself. The garters were used way back in 1800s with socks or stockings to make sure they do not slip from the leg. Now, since elastic has come, garters are not much needed casually. Although, tossing garter is still a wedding tradition that is in vogue. Continue Reading
