Are you worried by the mounting costs of your wedding arrangements? Weddings are extremely expensive to organize especially if your dream wedding involves an attractive theme with lots of entertainment, beautiful décor and favors for all your guests. One expense that you cannot avoid is the money you spend on your wedding invitations. These cards have a very important role to play in your wedding and it is simply not done to avoid using them entirely by using email or any other method. A wedding is, after all, a very traditional event and it will not be appreciated at all if you snip out some important elements.

This does not, however, mean that you cannot save money while getting your wedding invitation cards printed. There are ways by which you can get your wedding cards done in a manner that suits your taste and requirements while still being well below budget.

Wearing Pure White Vs Ivory – What Does Colour Theme Mean?

January 21, 2011 0 Comments Colour themes by Administrator

There are many decisions that a girl has to make when it comes to her dream wedding but there is nothing that gives her more pleasure that selecting a wedding gown. Most little girls spend a great deal of time dreaming of what they will wear when they finally get married. A beautiful wedding gown has an undeniable attraction for girls of all ages. You will have to select the best color for your wedding gown and not just the design that flatters you the most.

Tradition dictates that brides wear white to their wedding in order to indicate to the world that they are virgins. However, like most rules, this one too is getting out-dated. To start with, brides these days do not have to make a statement to the world whether they are pure or not since this is a purely personal situation. Besides, not every person looks good in pure white.

What is a Wishing Well?

January 19, 2011 0 Comments Wedding ettiquette by Administrator

One of the biggest dilemmas that people face during weddings is on the subject of wedding gifts. The biggest reason for this is the current the trend of living together before marriage thanks to which the couple already has a house that is equipped with all the things that are usually gifted during a wedding. Traditional wedding gifts such as toasters, kettles and ornaments are no longer welcome for this reason. More and more couples feel that it is now appropriate to ask for money rather than gifts. This has resulted in the growing trend where people install a wishing well at their wedding.

This issue of giving money as a wedding gift may be a problem for the couple getting married as well as the guests at the event. If you are getting married, then you will need to know how to communicate to your guests that you would prefer cash instead of a gift. Many guests also prefer to give cash because it saves them the time and effort of going shopping and putting a great deal of thought into what might be the best gift for the couple. You could put a wishing well at the venue of your wedding reception so that guests can place their cash gifts in addition to cards with their greetings. This is becoming increasingly popular and a wishing well will not seem out of place at all at your wedding.

Kitchen tea - what to wear?

January 17, 2011 0 Comments Wedding ettiquette by Administrator

Every person deserves to have a wonderful wedding where he or she gets to commit to the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with while being in the presence of friends and family. There are many lovely events that precede the actual wedding and these are opportunities for the bride or groom to have a great deal of innocent fun before they get married. A Kitchen Tea party is one such event and it is usually thrown for the bride to be by her closest friends.

You do not have to get unduly worried with regards to what you should be wearing to your kitchen tea party. This is usually a very girly and casual affair held in the afternoon at home or in a café or even a restaurant that is not very formal. A kitchen tea usually involves a few games, some of which can be extremely silly. There is usually no alcohol or any suspicion of anything raunchy in this party because it is not at all similar to a Hen Party. In fact, many people organise a Kitchen Tea party for older friends and relatives while keeping the Hen’s Party for younger and more adventurous people. It is not uncommon to have both these events on the same day.

How to write a bridesmaid's speech

January 15, 2011 0 Comments Wedding General by Administrator

Getting an invitation to be a bridesmaid is a great honour for you because a woman only invites her closest friends or siblings to stand by her side as she gets married. This is a role that includes many responsibilities since you and the other bridesmaids, if any, have to assist the bride in many ways in the days leading up to the wedding and, of course, on the big day itself. In fact, a bridesmaid has a lot of preparations to do and you can easily get swamped by all the work if you do not have everything well organised.

The bride usually assembles a team of her closest confidants and siblings to help her get ready for the biggest day of her life. You might have to help her decide the theme for the wedding and also help her pick out the most appropriate wedding invitation cards. Wedding  invitations are usually sent out by the bride’s family which is why you might be called upon to help with them. You will also have to throw the bride a shower as well as a girl’s night out, along with the other bridesmaids.

How to write a best man speech

January 13, 2011 0 Comments Wedding General by Administrator

Have you recently been invited to be the best man for a wedding? This is indeed a great honour for you because a man only invites his closest friend or sibling to be his best man as a mark of great respect. This is a role that includes many responsibilities, one of which is to make a speech at the reception that follows the wedding. In fact, even though you will receive a formal wedding invitation, you will actually have to act like the host for the event, making sure that all guests are made to feel welcome and are seated correctly.

You would not be the first person to quail at being given such great responsibility along with the wedding invitation. Most people have an irrational but abiding fear of speaking in public. This fear can be intensified given that the gathering is a very formal one. The other problem that you will face is not knowing what to say. As the closest friend or sibling of the groom, you are sure to have ample material to write into your speech. This does not necessarily mean that you know what to include. You should also be able to collate everything in a manner that is interesting to the people that are gathered there.

Gifts for your bridesmaids

January 10, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Planning Tips! by Administrator

Are you confused about what gifts to pick out for your bridesmaids? Your bridesmaids are the most important women in your life, whether they are your best friends or family members. It is a great honour for them to be part of your bridal party and you are equally privileged to have them stand by you on the most important day of your life.

Bridesmaids have a very important role to play in the wedding since they provide the bride with a great deal of support that extends far beyond the emotional. Indeed, they have a great many errands to run, both large and small, in order to ensure that the wedding and all events preceding it go off smoothly. For instance, your bridesmaids can be delegated the task of looking after the wedding invitation cards. They will help you mail the wedding  invitations out and will also go through the responses that these wedding  invitations elicit from your guests. They might even help with decorating the venue of the wedding and the reception.
