  • Creative Wedding Seating Styles and Ideas

    Every bride and groom wants their special day to be remembered fondly in their memories as well as those of the invitees. If you are looking for wedding inspiration to make your big day stand out starting with your wedding ceremony, we have a few ideas. With Spring coming to an end and Summer quickly approaching, outdoor wedding and seating arrangements are great ways to move away from the traditional wedding styles for a creative edge to your wedding style.

    Even if you are not opting for an outdoor wedding but you have a spacious indoor venue, you can still use these seating styles for your wedding ceremony. Your choice of seating will reflect the style and the theme of the wedding you are after. When you are planning to move away from the traditional choices of seating furniture from Tiffany or white folding chairs, you are able to bring your wedding theme full circle with a personal twist. Here are some unique and creative wedding seating styles and inspirations to add a little personality and style for a memorable wedding day.


                                   Creative Wedding Seating Styles Wedding Benches

    Benches are an ideal choice if you are looking for a casual yet elegant look for your wedding seating. These benches can be plain with a wood finish or painted according to the wedding colours. Popular decorative benches with a Moroccan feel are well received for beach weddings (often coupled with Moorish lanterns).

    Floor Mats/Blankets and Cushions

                                   Creative Wedding Seating Styles Wedding Floor Blankets and Cushions

    A great choice for the beach or at grassy location, these floor mats or blankets coupled with cushions to match your wedding theme, will allow your guests to relax while the ceremony proceeds. If you expect the day to be extra sunny, offer choices of shade such as patio umbrellas or even create a canopy with cloth that will provide both aesthetic appeal and shade.

    Ottomans and Poufs

                                   Creative Wedding Seating Styles Wedding Ottomans Poufs

    Ottomans offer a homely wedding seating style but when coupled with accessories it can be transformed into a beautiful look, similar to that of the benches. You can add accents in-between the ottomans too. Based on the shape of the ottoman you’ll be able to arrange the seating in a creative way to make a design too (this would make for a beautiful aerial photograph). Similarly, poufs, which are sleek cube ottomans, are popular options too.

    Mix and Match Furniture

    This type of wedding seating style is quite eclectic as you put together various types of furniture to add a quirky seating setting for your ceremony. They are ideal choices when you want to impress by featuring an assortment of chairs to make your wedding guests feel comfortable and relaxed.  If you are choosing wooden chairs over cushioned, consider adding  a few decorative elements to the back to for a quick and easy elegant touch or even add some colourful throw pillows to the mix.

    Yes, you and your fiancé ARE the stars of the show, but often the entire bridal party entourage makes for the beautiful picture. In it you will find your bridesmaids, flanking the beautiful bride, YOU!  If you have started putting your wedding theme and style together, you may find these styles for bridesmaids dresses inspiring! Keep reading for great ideas for styling your bridesmaids


    The Traditional Bridesmaid

    Bridal Party Wedding Traditional Bridesmaids


    The traditional rule of thumb was to style and dress your bridesmaids the same as if to blend into the background, but that’s not the case anymore though it’s recommended they should look somewhat cohesive and within your wedding theme/style. Usually, the bridesmaid will be a sister or a friend and the attire usually involves A-line dresses. These dresses are often in the same bright and cheery colour but in different shades and tone. The necklines can either be the same or different, but it should look alike.


    The Infinity Bridesmaids Dress

    Wedding Bridesmaids Infinity Dress Styles


    Recently, the Infinity Dress was an ever-popular choice for Bridesmaid dresses that allowed the bride to choose a particular colour and have the bridesmaids wear it in different styles, based on their body type and preference. This Convertible Dress is a great investment considering the fact you can wear it again and again with the choice of mixing up necklines, sleeves and lengths too. It’s also available in a myriad of colours that makes it great for the modern bride who may not want to stick to one colour for all the bridesmaids.


    The Bridesmaid Dresses and Choice of Colours

    Pastel Bridesmaids Dress Theme


    There are many ways you can style your bridesmaids looks, but colour coordination is one way to go about it. While the traditional way would be to stick to one colour shade and identical dresses, that doesn’t mean you have to – there are more fun alternatives nowadays. Speaking of which, you can choose the very trendy “One Colour Many Shades” style, which is fabulous with any of the core colours.  Let’s not stop there, how about a pastel colour theme, where you assign one bridesmaid one pastel colour each and letting them own it – you can present the colours to them and have them pick which one they want for a very democratic process of colour choice that will ultimately make your life easier.


    Accessorising Your Bridesmaid

    Inspirations Ideas Bridesmaid Dress Styles


    Apart from the length, neckline and colour of the bridesmaid dresses, there are other ways in which you can style your bridesmaids to make them stand out. We’re talking about shoes, hair and make-up. Don’t forget that those too will make the ensemble truly sparkle. You can choose to have the traditional look for everyone, same shoes, same hair, same everything, OR you can mix it up with what suits your bridesmaids the best. In the end, you are looking for everyone to have fun on your big day and not to mention for your wedding photographs to look amazing.

  • Wedding Hair Pieces for the Big Day

    The wedding dress usually gets all the attention, but it’s attention to detail that makes your wedding stand out. For instance, even with your wedding dress, the cut and the trimming matters because it makes the entire look unique. Likewise, other details that go into making you the most beautiful yet should also be given some thought, such as your wedding hair pieces. It’s not just about the veil anymore and we’ve got some ideas up our sleeves that we want to share with you!


     Wedding Hair Pieces Inspirations Tiaras

    Tiaras are the most traditional choices of headpieces loved by many a bride, to add a royal touch to the ensemble. Its placement depends greatly on your choice of hairstyle, but often whether you are opting for a dramatic or elegant look, the tiara is the crowning glory of the ensemble.  A modern take on the tiara is when its worn across the forehead such as that worn by Kim Kardashian on her wedding day. These headband tiaras can be fitted with a veil or worn on its own too.  Apart from them being encrusted, you can also opt to wear a floral tiara, making it a truly modern and eco-friendly headpiece!

    Grecian Inspired Crown and Encrusted Barrettes

     Wedding Hair Pieces Inspirations Crown and Barrettes

    Though this may sound similar to a floral tiara, it is based on your wedding hairstyle. If you are opting for a top knot with a floral or leaf inspired designed hairpiece wrapped around it, then this would very well be perfect.  You can opt to have an encrusted barrette creating a statement piece alongside the top knot, or a crown of sorts that will go around the hairstyle. Whichever you may choose, this hairpiece and style is a clear favourite for brides who want to add height to their appearance.  When it comes to the use of a barrette, even a low hanging knot or bun would be ideal.

  • Herbal Remedies to Prepare You for Your Wedding Day

    As the Big Day draws closer and closer, many brides experience a flurry of emotions from stress, nervousness and anxiety, often suffering from insomnia too. Often they can be quite difficult to cope with, especially as wedding planning can be a very stressful affair! When you are stressed out, you are taxing your immune system, therefore you need to find ways in which to remedy it and herbal/non-medicinal methods are ideal!


    Bridal Insomnia Remedies & Relief

    insomnia relief sleeping solutions

    As a bride-to-be (and groom-to-be), you may have what seems to be an endless list of to-do lists and follow-up calls to vendors and other parties who are involved in helping you plan your dream wedding day. This could very well lead you to not being able to shut off your brain and get some shut-eye. We have some great ways in which you can find some relief for lack of sleep/insomnia leading up to the wedding.


    Change your Bedtime Routine: Actively making changes to your day-to-day routine can greatly affect your sleeping patterns. For instance, if you find yourself tossing and turning in bed for close to 20 minutes, get out of bed and indulge in a quiet activity (such as reading, nothing that includes screen time). Ideally, your bedroom should be dark, quiet and cool; the perfect conditions for sleeping comfortably without disruption.


    Reduce Screen Time: The blue light emitted from screens can disrupt the secretion of melatonin that aids in telling the brain it’s time to sleep.


    Cut Down your Caffeine Intake: If you have set a bedtime routine where you want to go to sleep at a certain given time, make sure you avoid taking any caffeinated beverages at least four to five hours before that.


    Consider Relaxation Technique: Finding ways to relax is important, which is also an integral part of stress management, and doing this without the use of medication is great. Consider the items mentioned in the sections below.

    Wedding Stress Management

  • How to Ask Your Bridal Party to Be Part of your Wedding

    Your bridal party will essentially be your support group during the excitement (and stress) of planning the wedding, especially on the big day. Getting your A-team together is an important step towards making sure everything runs smoothly. Maybe you have already figured out who you want to be part of your wedding day (possibly life-long friends who have your back), but in the event you are still looking, make sure you put some thought into it.

    One thing that the bride or the groom can ask themselves before they pop the question to their prospective bridesmaids or groomsmen would be “do you see yourself being friends with them five years down the lines” and “how well will they gel with the others on your bridal party list”? If you are sure and content with the answers, then it’s time you asked them to do you the honour of being part of your bridal party!

    We love the idea of creative and fun ways to ask the bridesmaids and groomsmen and not to mention the maid of honour and best man. Here are our favourites!

    Will You Be my Bridesmaid/Maid of Honour?

    Your bridesmaid or maid of honour proposal can be fun and creative! The “Bridesmaids” movie set the way with its elegant box that came complete with a live butterfly that flew out when opened. You can do the same including adding trinkets, chocolate and various mementos that you feel your girls might appreciate. But there are other ways too. Here are some ideas!

    You can propose to your girls at the engagement party, or by taking them out to lunch individually or as a group!

    Will You be My Groomsman/Best Man?

    Asking your guy friends to be part of your “crew” is done differently to that of the girls. However, you can present them with a memento box, just with a masculine touch. Here are some ideas!

  • How to Prepare for Your Engagement Photo Shoot

    One of the things you would take away from your engagement would be the way he proposed, and not to mention the beautiful ring he slipped into your finger.  If you have already started planning your wedding, you may already have an engagement photo shoot included as part of your wedding photography package. However in the event that you don’t, you can make plans to have one done a la carte. When you do decide to go ahead with your engagement photo shoot session, you need to prepare for it. Here are some of the things you need to keep in mind and work towards so that you end up with beautiful engagement photographs and some great memories from the day too.

    Brainstorm with your Photographer

    Engagement Photo Shoot Preparation Ideas

    Knowing what you want is important. Often couples choose two styles, one set of pictures that are casual and another formal (which can be used for your save the date cards, for an engagement party invitation or for your newspaper wedding announcement).

    Your photographer may offer you many suggestions, but it’s also important to do your own research and look for engagement shoot inspirations to figure out what you would like. Thereafter you can fit these styles into what suits you both and your personalities. For example, if you love books, you can choose a library as your location and work with books and newspapers as your props.

    Make sure that whatever you choose to do, it resonates with the people you are. If you are offered a suggestion that isn’t you, don’t be afraid to say no. Also, choose clothing that you are comfortable with and is your style.

    Timing and Sticking to it

    Preparing for Your Engagement Photo Shoot

    Often the best pictures are possible when natural lighting is available. An ideal time would be two hours before sunset when the light is just right (the lighting offers a natural skin glow). As you are working within a time frame make sure that you are ready and on time. If you have working with a change of clothes and even location, then make sure to plan ahead of time and have made the arrangements such as a changing room and so forth.

    Engagement Shoots are FUN

    Fun Engagement Shoot Ideas

    One thing for sure, engagement shoots are fun. After all, you are attempting to capture your personalities and the love that you share, so let loose and be relaxed. Don’t worry too much about the poses and angles, it’s up to the photographer to do all that. You just need to be yourselves and it will all fall in place.  It’s important to interact with your fiancé and just have a good time. Once all the pictures have been taken, you can go through the many capture to pick out the best ones.

    The Other Little Details

    One thing most couple forget is that the ring will receive some spotlight too. It would be a good idea to have the ring cleaned beforehand. Also, when it comes to makeup and hair, take a little care to dab up shine spots and not to mention add a touch more makeup on your eyes, cheeks and lips so they stand out better in the photographs. Make sure to stick to matte makeup and don’t forget to paint your nails!

  • Bridal Makeup Tips

    Look your best on the biggest day of your adult life by keeping these great bridal makeup tips in mind when preparing for the wedding.  These makeup tips are ideal for brides who want to look their best and keep in mind the different scenarios that pertain to them, such as tears, environment and the possible need for touch ups.




    Makeup Tips for Every Bride


    One thing for sure, wearing layers and layers of makeup can be very difficult when your wedding starts way before the ceremony when you want to get some great wedding photographs. It’s all about looking the best version of yourself so you need to be wary of what you put on.  Always trial your bridal makeup and ask opinions from family and friends that will give you their input.


    The Natural Bride Look


    Wedding-Bride-Pose-Images Natural makeup


    One of the best ways to go about this is to opt for a natural look, which is quite easy to create. The trick is to use your normal daily makeup routine but add a little bit more. Makeup professionals recommend adding a few layers of blush to get the flushed rosy cheeks effect after applying a cream cheek colour. Also, opt to accentuate your eyes with hidden eyeliner where rather than applying it on the lid you highlight under the eyelashes thus maintaining the shape and size of the lid. Choose a lip colour that is one shade more pink than what you are used to make your lips stand out. Don’t forget powder sheen to get that glowing bride effect.  It will be a much better look to trying to matt your shine spots with powder that could make it look quite caked.


    A Bolder Bride Makeup Look

    Whilst the natural bridal makeup routine is very popular, you can go a little deeper with the lip colour whilst still maintaining a similar routine with as little foundation as necessary, more focus on the eyes and a lovely shade of blush to create the rosy-cheeked effect.


    Wedding Day Makeup Kits

    Once you’ve done your bridal makeup trials and decided on a look that looks best on you, then it’s time to make sure your makeup kit for the day has all the essentials. If you are having a makeup artist to help you get ready for the big day, make sure you bring your own beauty products that have been tried and tested on your skin and you know will work. From foundation, loose powder, concealer, shimmers/sheen powders, blushes, eyeshadows, waterproof eye liners and mascara is very important to have, especially ensuring that they won’t melt away in the heat or if you get a tad emotional during the ceremony.


    Wedding Touch Up Kit




    Apart from this also have a touch up kit, something compact that you can hide away in a little drawstring bridal bag. Include items such as a small powder brush, pressed powder compact with a mirror, lipstick and gloss, some tissues and even Q-tips. You can hand this over to the maid of honour or a bridesmaid so you can focus on looking your best!
