Top Tips to Help You Choose the Right Fabric for Your Wedding Gown

January 06, 2012 0 Comments Wedding Planning Tips! by Administrator

Are you busy selecting the different things that will go into making your wedding day very special? You’ll have to order the right wedding invitations, flowers and bonbonnieres amongst other things in order to ensure that your big day is as wonderful as possible. You’ll have a great deal of fun selecting your gown as well, because this is one outfit that will make you look absolutely wonderful. You’ll have to remember however, that there is more to selecting your gown than choosing a design that flatters your figure.

The fabric that you make your wedding gown out of is really important because the right material will make you look stunning while ensuring that you are comfortable at the same time. There are quite a few fabrics that work beautifully for wedding gowns. Satin, lace and silk are very often used, as are organza, tulle and net. At the same time, a particular design will look completely different if it is made using different fabrics because of the way in which it falls. It is therefore best if you spend quite a bit of time checking out different materials so that you understand which one suits you the best. Don’t buy anything that feels uncomfortable just because it looks good or is available at the right price.

Do you feel only a sense of worry as your wedding approaches because you have so much work to do? You’ll have to ensure that everything from sending out wedding invitations to organizing bonbonnieres will have to be done perfectly. There are so many different things you have to do in order to make your big day special and unique that you can easily get stressed and worked up. This can have an adverse look on your health and also on your looks. You might therefore need to get help for all your wedding related arrangements if you don’t want to cut back on how the event looks.

It will be impossible to plan an elaborate wedding without feeling stressed especially if your event is being held at a special destination such as overseas. Besides, you simply might miss out on something important if you try to do this on your own. Your only option might be to relinquish responsibility for making all the arrangements to a person who has the capability and resources to do it well. In other words, you might feel the need to approach a wedding consultant who can help you with the arrangements.

Top Tips in Saving Your Wedding Dress

December 30, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Planning Tips! by Administrator

Admit it… you spent hours poring over magazines, bridal books, and dress catalogs before you narrowed down your choice to one wedding dress you wanted to wear for your big day. Considering that you’ve spent so much time on selecting the dress of your dreams, don’t you think you ought to do something to make sure that you make it last for as long as possible? Most of the other things that you spend your money on in connection with the ceremony and the celebration (wedding invitations, bonbonnieres, flowers et al) are forgotten after the event is over but the dress is something that you should preserve for as long as possible.

Your beautiful bridal gown is a very fragile garment, considering that it is made of luxurious fabrics such as silk, organdie, net or chiffon. It is also usually in one shade of white or ivory or the other, making it very prone to getting stained. However, you’ll need to ensure that it is stored in the correct manner so that it can be kept as a family heirloom and something that could be passed on to your daughters or granddaughters should they express a desire to wear it when it is their time to walk down the aisle.

Wedding Dress Alterations – When Is the Right Time?

December 29, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Planning Tips! by Administrator

You got the marriage proposal, and you said yes to it! Probably the first thing you did after that was to buy a lovely wedding gown to wear. If your wedding is 6 – 8 months away, as is usually the case, then you might realize that your gown needs a little bit of alteration because you might have lost weight, or, as more likely is the case, have put it on! You’ll be so busy rushing around doing everything for the wedding starting from issuing wedding invitations to selecting bonbonnieres that you might just neglect your diet.

Your wedding dress is unlikely to have come cheap since it is very tempting to splurge on it. Most brides tend to apportion quite a large part of their budget to their gown, and who can blame them? There is no feeling quite like the one a woman feels when she walks down the aisle in her beautiful gown. Now that you have spent quite a bit of your money on a lovely gown that will make you look stunningly beautiful, you need to ensure that it fits you well on your big day. In fact, you might need to alter it in case it no longer fits you perfectly.

Your wedding day has been fixed a few months away, and you are likely to be busy making plenty of arrangements to ensure that everything goes off well. Starting from the wedding invitations and going all the way to ordering bonbonnieres and booking a photographer, you’ll have plenty of things to do in the months leading up to your big day. However, are you sure that you are in the right shape for your big day? You’ll definitely need to get into the right figure for your wedding because the eyes of all your friends and family will be upon you.

Wedding outfits cost a great deal of money and you’ll need to ensure that you look really great in yours. It would be a terrible pity to let all your money go to waste if you do not look your absolute best on that day.

If you get the required amount of cardio exercise every week your body metabolic rate will be high and your blood circulation will be improved. This will give you the energy you need to pack in as many tasks into your schedule as possible. You will also sleep better if you exercise often, and this nightly rest is essential for your brain to function at optimum levels.

Are you completely confused about how to proceed while designing your wedding invitation cards? This is hardly surprising considering that the perfect wedding invite has many different components, all of which have to be given equal attention in order for the final result to be perfect. An invite to a wedding has a very important role to play. In fact it is extremely significant because it is the first communication that your guests receive from you regarding the upcoming nuptials.

Your wedding invitation card has to provide as much information about the wedding as possible so that your guests are in no confusion at all regarding the ceremony that is about to take place. Wedding invites therefore include a few more things. One of them is the reception card. This is necessary if your wedding reception is going to take place in a different venue from the wedding. This card is also necessary if you have a different guest list for the wedding and another one for the reception. You can give combinations of these cards to people depending on the events you plan to invite them for.
