Would you like a luxurious wedding or would you rather get married by a lake in Canada? Let’s take a look at some of our suggestions.

Paris – European Charm

If you two like Europe, why not consider getting married there? It can be both exotic and adventurous. For example, you can tie the knot in Paris, the capital of France. Besides the Eiffel Tower, Paris also has quaint outdoor cafes, the beautiful River Seine and a lot of tasty chocolate in the local patisseries. They don’t call Paris the city of love for no reason. For your honeymoon, you can travel from Paris to other capitals of Europe. Discover Prague and then head down to Belgrade, you might be surprised with how much some cities have to offer.

The Exotic Bora Bora

If you want to celebrate love, Bora Bora is among the best destinations to do so. Pick a relaxing spa arrangement for two in the exotic InterContinental Bora Bora resort and you’ll see why we think so. Tying the knot in Bora Bora? You can have a beautiful beach ceremony that will surely become your most treasured memory for the rest of your life. Enjoy romantic sunsets and try the Hula dance, you won’t be disappointed. If you are really into exotic places, you can also have your honeymoon there. Not a bad idea, right?

New Zealand – Canada – USA – For Adventurers Only

Rustic themed weddings are a big thing in New Zealand nowadays. Combining the romantic countryside with the enchanting feeling of tranquility far away from the city and all that noise might sound like a good wedding destination option. New Zealand is truly a unique place and if you want your wedding to be unique, getting married there would a great match.

You feel like getting away from the usual urban environment with your significant other? You want to tie the knot near a lake? If so, Canada has a lot to offer. Rent a lodge and get married on the lakeside! The photos of your special day will be gorgeous and your guests will surely remember your special day! Kate Middleton and Prince William visited a lodge in the North West Territories for their honeymoon in 2011 and we are sure that they haven’t regretted it.

Last, but surely not least, consider getting married at the Grand Canyon! You can find numerous wedding packages online. Some will lead you to Grand Canyon West, some to El Dorado Canyon and the Valley of Fire. One thing is for sure: whatever you pick, you won’t be disappointed. Someone said once that a good marriage resembles the Grand Canyon; it’s long, deep, challenging and weathered. However, when you look back at it from afar, it sure is the most beautiful thing in the world. Therefore, be sure to consider this option seriously.

Hopefully you’ll consider some of our tips for your dream destination wedding location. Choosing the location isn’t easy, but it sure is worth all the trouble in the end.

Organise a Wedding That Will Live Long in the Memory

Organise a Wedding That Will Live Long in the Memory

Weddings are always special. Weddings are always magical. They’re a joyous occasion that are unrivalled by any other celebration of life, save the birth of a child. They are a joy to behold. They are also, however, a general activity in life. And like with other general activities in life, they can fall from the memory. Now, of course, for the bride and groom the memory of the wedding day will never fade — for better or worse depending on how the marriage turns out. But for the guests, especially those that have a bit too much to drink on the day, the event can become a bit hazy. ‘I thought that was Harry and Sally’s wedding? Or was it Bill and Sue’s? Oh, I don’t know,’ is something you may have said in the past. There’s nothing wrong with this. Weddings are generally the same and it can be hard for guests to remember specific details about the ones they’ve attended. But if you’re planning a wedding, or plan to plan one in the future, you want yours to be memorable, right? There are ways to make a wedding live long in the memory of those that attend it. A few of them can be found below.

There are many ways to make your wedding more memorable but the most popular way to do so today is to have the ceremony abroad. If you’re in your late twenties and early thirties you can probably attest that there is seemingly a wedding abroad every couple of months. This is growing trend because of a few things. One is that, generally, it means the ceremony is taking place in the most beautiful of places. Another is that it will make the wedding memorable. In the future, when guests are having a hard time differentiating between weddings that they’ve been to they can just think back to where it took place. If Harry and Sally’s took place on the picturesque Amalfi Coast, then guests will remember this. If Bill and Sue’s took place in Rome, then this will be remembered also. If Bob and Janet’s took place in their hometown, however, then their wedding may fall short when it comes to living long in the memory. Having a wedding in a certain place, and making this the focal point of the ceremony, is a great way to make a wedding memorable because it geographically place marks it. If you want to take this venture then like Harry and Sally, and Bill and Sue, look no further than the beautiful country of Italy.

Another way to make a wedding live long in the memory is to ensure that there is an extensive amount of evidence that it took place. Not only this, but the evidence should be a symbol of that specific wedding and the bride and groom. For instance, this not only means that a plethora of photographs, both professional and amateur, should be taken. It means that the photos that are taken represent the personality and lives of the couple. If you and your significant other half love cars, why not pose for your wedding photos in your favourite motor? If you have a pet in your family that you are synonymous for owning, then why not have it be in the photos with you? There’s nothing wrong with bending the rules when it comes to ‘traditional’ photographs in order to have snaps taken of you that represent you and your other half. And the snaps that are taken, no matter what they represent, will last a lifetime both in albums and online. Because of this everything should be perfect — from the bride’s dress to her teeth. When it comes to the former it’s easy to forget that the dress is snapped even before it is put on. Because of this you should ensure that it is hanging on something that looks nice and pretty and not a wire hanger. When it comes to the latter, the bride’s teeth, she should have them tended to before the wedding if she wants them perfect for the photos. Whether it be teeth whitening that a bride is after or procedures on her teeth, she should learn about MyDentalBrush.com. They offer an extensive amount of services and procedures that can give any bride a smile she’s happy to flash in the most important photographs she’ll ever have taken of her.

A final bit of advice when it comes to making a wedding memorable is to simply break some rules with yours. As mentioned, weddings, as special as they are, are generally the same. They take place in the same kind of places. They follow the same sort of timeline. So if you want your wedding to stand out, why not have it take place in a different kind of place? Why not have it take place outdoors? There are plenty of pros to having a wedding outdoors. One is that little to no decor would be needed. Another is that there is more of a wide and open space available. The biggest one, however, is that it would be memorable. If you want your wedding to stand out in the memory, then why not make it ‘that one that took place outside’. The one big con with an outdoor wedding is, of course, the weather. You can’t control the weather, so you could find yourself in the midst of rainfall just as you are about to say ‘I do’. But, to be honest, this would probably make the wedding memorable as well!

So, if you’re planning a wedding then why not do all you can to make it as memorable as possible for each and every one of your guests? Yes, the memories of it may last with you and your fiancé a lifetime regardless. But to make this the case for your guests you have to go above and beyond. You have to go the extra mile and further to ensure that every little detail lives long in the memory.

Do I Want an Indoor or Outdoor Wedding and Reception?

By Guest Blogger Diana S.

Do I Want an Indoor or Outdoor Wedding and Reception?

 

image-2-1It’s time to start planning your wedding, but before you start inviting your guests, you should think about the venues. Do you want to have your ceremony and reception in a restaurant, big wedding hall; or would you like it to be outside in the park, winery or at the mesmerizing Sydney beach? If you are having troubles deciding, then you should carefully list all the pros and cons of both options and see what best fits your budget and desires.

Indoor wedding

Pro: you don’t have to worry about the weather. Since you’re in a controlled environment, you don’t have to worry about sudden rain, snow or winds that could ruin your big day. You are basically safe to assume that both you and your guests will enjoy the wedding and reception in a comfortable and safe place.

Con: limited space. Every wedding venue has a maximum capacity, due to fire codes and other safety regulations. This may very well affect the number of guests you can invite. If you want a bigger reception, then you have to look for a bigger venue, which will be more expensive. Also, there might be some restrictions when it comes to decoration, which may alter the style of your wedding.

Pro: double purpose. Some venues have the capability to double both as a reception and ceremony venue. This can save you plenty of money if you are on a tight budget. Additionally, there are the benefits of being in a position to negotiate for lower package prices, catering services and even a free valet parking.

Con: higher demand. You should take into account the availability of the venues. If your wedding is during autumn or winter, then it will be harder to find available venues for your own wedding. During colder weather, the demand rises and you shouldn’t forget about that while planning your big day.

Outdoor wedding

image-4-3Pro: wide open space. Plenty of open space makes the whole wedding more family friendly. If there will be toddlers and children present who like to run around and move a lot, then it is easier to entertain them outdoors. Outdoor venues can accommodate many fun activities such as releasing birds, balloons, butterflies or paper lanterns and you can let the kids blow bubbles and enjoy. Also, if you have chosen to have a beach wedding, you can easily limit the open space with a few privacy screens from Sydney specialists and prevent any unwanted guests or letting your kids wander off.

Con: the weather. You can never know how the weather will turn out, so rain or snow could surprise you. Even though forecasts are close to predicting the weather, you cannot entirely plan it and the elements might end up ruining your big day. That’s why you should have a backup plan in case you are planning an outdoor wedding.

image-2-3Pro: little décor needed. The very nature is already you major wedding decoration. If you have chosen to have a reception at the park, you already have pretty flowers and plenty of greenery to complete the décor. If you are having a beach wedding, then there is nothing prettier than a mesmerizing landscape of a sunset or never-ending horizon. All you have to do is decorate the tables and chairs, and your wedding ceremony and reception are completely ready.

Con: restrooms. Even though many outdoor venues have restrooms nearby, it is probable that they are a bit further from the party. Decent walks may not be an issue for your guests, but it’s always good to ask about those facilities and their situation before booking an outdoor venue. It is beneficial to have a restroom nearby if some extreme or urgent situations do occur.

There you have it. The most common pros and cons people look at when deciding on their wedding venue. Sit together with your SO and see what fits your needs the best and have the most mesmerizing wedding day ever.

Beauty Tips for Having an Amazing Wedding

By Guest blogger Diana S.

Beauty Tips for Having an Amazing Wedding

marriage-451596_960_720Organizing a wedding is a stressful enough endeavor as it is, and having to look your best doesn’t make it any easier. Even though your task as a bride will be to try to relax and focus on your beauty, most of the time, you will be stressed out. Nevertheless, with these handy tips at your disposal, you can make sure you will look astonishing on your wedding day.

Notice Any Blemishes

Proper skincare begins noticing blemishes and any other marks on your skin you don’t want to be seen during your perfect wedding. You probably already know it, but it doesn’t hurt to make sure what your skin type is. This will play a key role in deciding what kind of treatment you need, and whether or not some creams will help. Choosing the wrong product just before your big day might have really bad results, since some might cause more harm than good.

Learn How to Do Facial Cleansing at Home

image-5-2In order to start purifying your skin and making sure it will glow when the big day arrives, learn how to put together a good deep cleansing facial. Avoid going overboard because too much of it could have dire consequences and you might end up ruining your skin permanently. After all, keep in mind that looking beautiful takes time, which is why you should start with treatments well before your wedding week.

Watch Your Diet

image-2-1You can achieve much by watching what you eat, and how you prepare your meals. Some foods can be great for your skin, and will do miracles. However, you still need to make sure your diet is healthy and isn’t causing you any health issues, otherwise, your body could react in a strange way. On the other hand, you shouldn’t adopt a specific diet only for your wedding; make sure to follow it afterwards and you will have radiant skin many will be jealous of.

Make Sure to Get Enough Sleep

Even though it sounds impossible, especially when you have so many chores to get done before the wedding, it is imperative that you get plenty of sleep. If you feel exhausted and tired all the time, your skin will show it as well. Above all, get quality sleep, because if you sleep less than usually, resting up will do you a world of good. Your skin will look simply astounding and you will feel great.

Cut Back on Stress

Good planning is key to a successful and stress-free organization of your wedding. Try to get everything done on time to ensure that you won’t have any issues to deal with later on. One of the most important things to mail before it’s too late are your wedding invitations, otherwise, nobody will show up on the most joyful day of your life. It’s a good idea to hire a wedding planner, who will be able to handle all the tasks, on time and with maximum precision. This will significantly unburden you and give you enough time to prepare yourself.

image-1-2The wedding will be all about you, which is why you should make sure you look your absolute best. Also, every girl’s dream is to have a fairy-tale wedding. However, that can be difficult to pull off if the bride does not fit into the fairy-tale setting. Be sure to start preparations in time, to have all the blemishes on your skin handled, so that when you arrive before the altar, people are awestruck by your beauty.

Get Prepped For A Winter Wedding

Get Prepped For A Winter Wedding

Although wedding season is typically in the summer, being a bride in the winter months can be really rather special. There’s something about cozying up to the most amazing man of woman you’ve ever met and saying I do. Summer weddings, of course, need a lot of planning; that goes without saying. But winter weddings can throw new problems and challenges into the circle. They can be breathtakingly beautiful, so it’s well-worth the extra effort. As long as you prepare properly, you should be absolutely fine. Just imagine snow on your wedding day…how utterly magical!

  1. Shop for wedding dress accessories

One of the wonderful things about a winter wedding is that you get to shop for more than just the dress. Finding your perfect wedding dress is, of course, a dream come true. You might not want to wear a dress just because it’s warm, though – where’s the romance in that! On the other hand, though, no bride wants to spend her special day feeling freezing and uncomfortable. You get the best of both worlds! You get to shop for a dress and matching warm accessories. Consider a cure faux fur stole or perhaps some butter-soft leather gloves. There’s so much to choose from.

  1. Love the planning

Your wedding day is going to be the most wonderful and exciting day of your life. To make this special day go without a hitch, you should think about enlisting the help of a trained professional. You need a Wedding Planner! Do your research and if possible get some recommendations. A wedding planner should be someone that you would trust with your vital wedding details. They should also be able to stay very calm under pressure! It’s also great if you really enjoy their company too – that way the wedding day is fun for everyone! When everyone is having fun, things tend to run a lot smoother. Providing the planner is in control…

  1. Consider velvet

Once you have fitted your drop-dead-gorgeous wedding dress and sought out all the most perfect accessories, it’s time to think about your guy! A winter wedding is a perfect opportunity for the man to have a little fun with his outfit. Of course, you want him to be chic and handsome all the time, but winter fabrics are just that much more luxurious! Imagine his in a dark navy velvet suit with a crisp white shirt. How about a beautiful tweed jacket? Make sure you both explore the options.

  1. Make it sparkle

With the nights drawing in a lot quicker, you have the perfect opportunity to play with your wedding lighting plan! If you want to light candles, make sure the environment is super safe – no wedding day accidents allowed! Super sparkly set of fairy lights in mason jars look amazing at winter weddings. Try out different ideas before you decide and have a look on Pinterest for further inspiration. You could even add some glitter in if you like!
