Tips for Fun and Successful Costume Wedding

When thinking about the big day what people usually have in mind is not really a costume party. Classical weddings are completely fine for those who want to play it safe, but some of us have more exciting ideas on our minds. Weddings don’t happen that often in one’s life (well, hopefully not), so why not make that special day even more special and memorable? Costume weddings are a great way to entertain your guests and throw a fun party that will be talked about for a long time. If you share love for sports, historical figures, superheroes or even movies with your dear partner, here’re some great tips on how to express that love on your very special day.

Costume weddingBe certain about it. One of the most important things that a good relationship or marriage should be based on is certainly accord. In order to make such an important decision such as whether to have a costume wedding or not, you must both agree. Don’t push your partner if you see that he/she isn’t that keen on the idea. You don’t want to start your marriage off like that. Think about the reasons for having such a wedding. Is it really interesting to you or maybe you’re just doing it to impress someone or imitate some other wedding party that you’ve been to. Only if you’re both really excited about it, will the idea work and you’ll be able to pass that enthusiasm on to your guests.

An easy-going theme. Wedding is not about everyone marching to your command. You want this event to be pleasant and relaxing for everyone. Choose the theme with that in mind. Try to make it flexible so that most of the guests will be willing to participate. Bear in mind that you’ll have guest of all age, from children to grandparents, so pick a theme with a wide range of possibilities. Characters from fairytales might be a good example. Or maybe sports. If you choose a historical theme, for example, don’t be strict about whether that hat on your uncle’s head corresponds to the 18th century fashion. Everyone put an effort into their outfit, so as a host you must acknowledge that.

Three things about costumes.

  1. When you pick a theme, what’s important is to help your guests with their costume ideas. One of the easiest ways to help them is to find costumes online because not everyone has the time or skill to make their own. Do a little bit of research and offer them some affordable solutions.
  2. It would be nice if everyone would show up dressed like you planned but, hey, it’s not a perfect world and this probably won’t happen. So, be prepared for those who came unprepared by having some extra costumes just in case. Depending on the theme, sometimes just a piece of accessory can be enough to pull someone into the game.Costumed wedding guests
  3. Some of the guests who come without costumes maybe don’t agree with the idea or feel too silly to dress up according to your theme. Be nice to them and don’t criticize them for their decision. After all, you are all there to have a good time and celebrate what’s going to be a happy union.

How to Throw a Victorian Wedding

You were made perfectly to be loved, and surely I have loved you, in the idea of you, my whole life long.”

So went the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning in one of the most quotable sound-bites of the Victorian era, a time truly awash in romance. Still decades away from suffrage and gender equality, the average Victorian woman aspired for nothing more than marrying into fortune. More than anything, she looked forward to romance like her life depended on it.

Are you interested, per chance, in a Victorian-themed wedding? Wax nostalgic with this guide.

Flowers

Like the literature of the era, the Victorian wedding is characteristically flowery. If you should take any advice, pull out all the stops in blossomy décor. Instead of rolling out a red carpet, carpet the wedding aisle with petals. Deck the church and reception area with roses, rosemary and myrtle. Make sure the bridal bouquet is in a metal cone called a tussy mussy.

Bridal attire

One lasting legacies of the Victorian era is the use of white on bridal dresses. Before Victorian times, the white wedding dress was seen as a sign of poverty, and women would rather wear their best green, brown and black frocks. Then on her 1840 wedding to Prince Albert, Queen Victoria wore an ivory dress; bridal fashion has never been the same since.

Victorian WeddingA quintessentially Victorian wedding dress would have a fitted bodice high in the neck and sleeves that reach to the wrists. The skirt should fall over hoops and petticoats. The veil would be made of diaphanous gauze, cotton, lace, or silk tulle and touch the feet. Most importantly, the veil must be suspended from a headdress of flowers, preferably maiden-blush roses and orange blossoms. The bride would also wear white kid gloves and white brocade or satin slippers.

Groom’s attire

A Victorian groom would wear a morning dress with a dark blue, claret or mulberry frock coat, a cravat, and white gloves. His lapel typically held a large boutonniere of lilies, gardenias or sprigs. He was seldom seen without a black top hat.

Venue

Nuptials of the era often took place in church, i.e. the parish of the bride. Otherwise, the setting might be at home, ideally the backyard garden of a manor. Couples would also wed at the park or botanical garden.

Date and time

Victorian culture was steeped in superstition. True to form, brides would choose Mondays and Tuesdays for the wedding, as these days supposedly bring health and wealth, respectively. Wednesday was the most auspicious time to marry though, while Thursday, Friday, and Saturday signified “crosses, losses, and no luck,” respectively. Sunday would be blasphemous.

Laws of the time stipulated that ceremonies must take place in the morning. The best time for a Victorian wedding was between 10 am and 12 pm. Later laws allowed functions as late as 3 pm, while couples in hotter climes held the event in the cool evening. Of course, no rule today stops you from holding a wedding beyond morning.

Good luck

In keeping with the era’s superstitious bent, the bride and groom would exchange vows under such symbols of good luck as a bell or wishbone. After the ceremony, guests showered the newlyweds with birdseed to promote fertility.

Ring

Victorian wedding rings equated to gold bands engraved with the couple’s initials and the date of the wedding. Bands that drop during the ceremony were believed to ward off evil spirits.

Horses

If you want a truly Victorian wedding, eschew the cars for carriages. A carriage pulled by four white horses epitomised weddings then. Meanwhile, rich couples of the era were known to ride on a carriage drawn by a grey horse.

Reception

Victorian-era wedding receptions took place at the bride’s home. Ushers were tasked to guide guests to the couple, who would stand flanked by the bridesmaids in an ornately decorated location at home. In the reception area, the bridal entourage were traditionally the only ones seated; everyone else had standing room. Tables were prepared in larger spaces though.

Entertainment

It was a common view at the time to treat the wedding as an honour in itself. Therefore, no live entertainment was necessary. However, more fulsome Victorian weddings were marked with evening merrymaking.

To channel the gaiety of the era, hire a wedding band instead of a DJ, as the latter would sound very anachronistic. Have them garbed in costumes of the period, for good measure.

Food

Since Victorian weddings typically took place in the morning, guests were usually treated to breakfast fare. Menu often included oysters, galantines, and cold game, while simpler preparations consisted of tea, scones, petit fours, and fresh summer fruits.

Victorian newlyweds’ choice confectionery was a multi-tier Victoria sponge with raspberry jam and whipped vanilla cream: a favourite of the Queen herself.

Cake

It was the height of Victorian tradition to serve a trio of wedding cakes, two for the bride and groom and one as the centrepiece. The latter was always dark fruitcake festooned with orange blossoms. The cakes usually held rings, pennies, thimbles, buttons, and other charms for guests to uncover. Every guest left with a boxed slice of cake.

Party favours

To complete your Victorian wedding, distribute oh-so-Victorian keepsakes like cameo brooches, lace handkerchiefs, and vintage china teacups. Another idea is to give them Victorian crackers that open up to reveal knick-knacks. Or you may give away paper fans emblazoned with love quotes, since the era was typified by much fanning.

Why wouldn’t one want to have a French-inspired wedding?

There are several ways to interpret the French theme — you’ve got the grand, post-renaissance inspired France, and the charmingly rustic countryside that seems that evokes ideas of simpler times. Whatever way you look at it, it’s all about whimsical understatement, classic beauty, and a whole lot of romance. Not to mention, delicious food and amazing selection of wine and champagne.

The Dress

When envisioning an imperial-inspired bridal gown, think structure and layers; a lace corset with a layered, wafting skirt, full of movement, maybe with textured. It’s all about trying to capture the elaborate decadence of the post-renaissance era. Bridal designer, Sarah Houston is known for creating gowns with a beautiful beaded bodices and flowing, pleated skirts.

Reversely, to honor the French’s admiration for minimalism, clothes should look effortless, modest and natural with simple accessories.  This aesthetic is perfect for the budget-conscious bride, as the quiet elegance that is valued by the French can be perfected for a reasonable cost. Without miles of fabric and elaborate embellishments, an A-line, short or sheath wedding dress from an affordable retailer like David’s Bridal will look as stunning as any dress worth thousands.

The Location

When selecting the location and décor, some couples will go with an elaborate French castle or stately home. These venues work best on the bigger, more classically-styled weddings. Decorations should be romantic and lavish; think lots of rich velvet, red, gold and an endless flow of carefully arranged flowers. The Biltmore, located in Asheville, North Carolina, is the perfect example of a venue fit for grand French-inspired wedding.

For a rural French wedding, you can keep location simple. Many couples opt for a farmhouse setting that is decorated with off-white hues mixed in with tasteful draping fabrics like chiffon and lace to create a dreamy atmosphere. Blushes and flirty pinks will help to balance the femininity with unpolished naturalness for a look that the French would undoubtedly adore.

The Food

No matter what era you are trying to convey in your French-inspired wedding, the food should be magnificent. Start out with the h’ourderves – escargot, caviar, mini-quiches and baked brie. When it is time for the entrée, the options can range from salmon cooked with tomatoes all the way to ratatouille, a French stew. One thing all of these dishes have in common is the need to be accompanied by wine and champagne. Have a large selection of white and red wines to compliment all the different types of food you will be serving.

For the cake, consider a traditional dessert called acroquembouche. An impressive tower of cream puffs coated with caramelized sugar, it is a favorite among French brides and is ideal for rustic-themed nuptials. Other sweets that can be offered to guests include crème brule, fruits drizzled with chocolate and sorbet.

So, whether you opt for the high-class luxury of a Marie Antoinette wedding or go for the Gauloise-in-hand approach of the countryside, just remember: keep the whole thing elegant, whimsical, and, most importantly, French. Raise your champagne glass and cheers to a long and happy marriage! A la votre!

TOP 10 WEDDING DESTINATIONS

Having a concept of the best wedding in the world only comes to authenticity when one holds his function from one of the superlative places in the world.

With endless places to hold the function, the choice lies in the hands of the bride and groom. In the midst of the beaches, resorts and hotels, one would be tempted to have the reception from one place while the honeymoon would be in an absolutely different place.

However, the fun and joy one would have is directly proportional to the resources available since the list of destinations is as many as the sand of the sea.

wed1

The Destinations

Florida, Mexico, Hawaii, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Virgin Islands and Aruba are some of the few places one would have something to write home about when visited.

In general, the above destinations provide exceptional services coupled with hospitable people and a superior climate.

Choosing the destination and Timing

Excellent as they may be, the supposedly best wedding destination may turnout futile if not well planned.

Listening to hullabaloo from the surrounding environment may make one gullible to some diseases. If one’s destination was a place with very many birds that sing for quite long hours, then such a place would become a pain in the neck for his entire wedding.

On the other hand, if one visited a place at an erroneous time of the year, it might be counted as a total loss. Florida for example is flooded with college kids during February and March and yet from June to November is a hurricane season.

ESTA, a very important prerequisite for guests to the USA may hamper some people from organizing their functions in the states of America. It is therefore imperative that one looks into this as he plans his destination for the wedding.

About some of the destinations

Florida: It has a sunny weather and beautiful beaches and is likely to be cheaper and easier for the visitors that would be hosted. Outdoor sports like golf coupled with famous amusement parks make it an exceptional destination for its tourists despite ESTA. Preparation for a wedding will also stop if the destination for the wedding is Florida as it is endowed with all in one function providers. Gifted with magnificent resorts and hotels, Florida can host the ceremony and reception which would be crowned up with the honeymoon at one of its beaches. Above all, wedding planners who could get for you all the services such as photographers and public address system among others are in the vicinity.

Mexico: The warm weather in its resort cities Cancun and Puerto Vallarta coupled with its spicy food have all given the destination an evident stake. Blessed with a number of developments, Mexico beach among others has seashore cottages, holiday homes and parks. Above all, when it comes to dawn, one would have a ample space to elevate a tent or hat.

Hawaii: If the no passport, no entry slogan is the failure to some of your important guests attending the wedding, then your ultimate destination is Hawaii. Such flexibility will be supplemented with the Hawaiian culture that will even make the function more vivid. Above all, Hawaii has six elegant islands; Maui, Oahu, Big Island, Kauai, Molokai and Lanai which are in the circumvented by fantastic scenery. Together with one’s fiancée, matrimony in this ancient volcanic scenery accompanied by the culture and lavish resorts will simply leave the couple with a story to write home about.

Dominican Republic: Positioned on the Island of Hispaniola, Dominican Republic has a number of resorts to choose from. It is a small Caribbean nation with destination wedding packages that will fulfil your dream wedding. In addition to the wide space available that can accommodate a reasonable number of visitors, Dominican Republic resorts are affordable. Dominican Republic resorts simply offer the foundation for leisure, adventure and romance.

Puerto Rico: Just like Hawaii, passport issues are not a prerequisite to entry. Its tropical lifestyle has also made it even a better wedding destination. If a couple’s furthermost wedding interest lies in romance and relaxation, then Puerto Rico will be their final destination for the wedding. Furthermore, delight seekers ranging from those who derive
their pleasure in water sports to those who draw theirs from sunbathing will all be in a home far away from home.

Jamaica: Moving from being a vacation spot, Jamaica is now a wedding destination due to its extremely blue waters and vibrant local customs. This is an all in one destination comprising a diversity of pleasurable points that one can take advantage of during and after the wedding. It is blessed with craft markets and historic sites such as museums which all add to the luxurious resorts and gardens where a remarkable wedding can be held from.

wed2

Virgin Islands: It is important that you first make an agreement with your guests before you schedule your function at these Islands because it might turn out to be difficult to come to a consensus whether they should observe the awesome white sandy beaches or be mindful about the wedding. In addition to that, an awesome experience will surely be realized if what you expect is what is surely on ground if not even better. A good wedding planner is an obligation at these islands who decides on important matters like mode of transport. Once well organized, a wedding at these islands will be one of the most unique among others.

Aruba: In the picture of the wedding, Aruba’s failure to have rainfall for almost the entire year is of great advantage. In this way, one would remain comfortable knowing that there are less chances of disruption due to rain. Amongst the Caribbean Islands, Aruba offers the most hygienic and fascinating holiday in modern times. Aruba has all the convenience one would need in a home setting.

Conclusion

With such a vast number of destinations for the wedding, it is only one’s resources that might be a limiting factor. Otherwise, what has been mentioned is simply the tip of the iceberg

Latest trends in the world of Men’s Wedding Bands

Fashion trends not only dominate the world of women but also men’s world of fashion, especially in the world of jewelry items. In comparison to the jewelry items for women, the ornaments for men are limited. But that does not mean that it is any bit less on style, comfort and character. The most common jewelry item worn by a man is his wedding band. And it is this jewelry item that jewelry makers are cashing in on. They have launched different styles and trends in this range. Some of the hottest wedding bands for men highlight different cutting styles and designs. In men’s jewelry white metal is leading the trend. What was considered unconventional a few years ago is one of the most “in-thing” in jewelry making.

Due to the durability and light weight nature of these white metals such as platinum, titanium, tungsten and palladium- are finding its way into main stream jewelry making and are loved by designers and the customers alike. Some of the popular well known jewelry makers who make wedding bands in these metals include Simon G, Tacori Jewelers and Verragio amongst others. Their in house designers are well aware of the recent trends and incorporate this knowledge in the creations. Their different collections are sleek, fashionable and highly stylish. One can easily choose any one from the varied collections available.

Of the different white metals available in the market, Titanium is gaining popularity amongst the couples as well as jewelry lovers across the globe for their versatility. What makes this metal so popular is a bit difficult to be attributed to any particular point. But whatever the reasons these rings exude a classy and stylish look. As this metal is light weight they are perfect for regular wear and this metal looks good with almost all the different gemstones. One can also choose the width of these bands. With its unique and individualistic appeal, titanium is leading the trend of men’s wedding bands.

One can opt for different styles of wedding bands such as a simple band with no work in it, just a simple circle of titanium. One can also opt for bands that have intricate detailed work in them like weaved designs and patterns. Or one can also opt for bands with a single diamond encrusted on it. Whatever trend you choose just makes sure that it matches your personality and does justice to your relationship. There is no point in opting for an elaborate wedding band if it only looks good but is a complete mismatch to your personality.
