  • Bridal Veil Styles for Your Wedding Day


    The perfect bridal veil can complement the perfect wedding dress. This week we look at the various wedding veil styles that brides have chosen in the past along with some great bridal veil styles and inspirations that may be perfect for you. For many brides, putting on the veil completes the entire look and is the final touch to the whole ensemble. Deciding on a veil style can be as important as picking out the perfect wedding dress.


    Firstly, why is a veil worn? It’s a traditional custom that originated in Europe. It is also considered a reference to the bride’s innocence and is often worn by first time brides. The lifting of the veil can be done in two instances; either where the father lifts the veil and present his daughter to the groom, or when the groom lifts the veil symbolically referring to the consummation of the marriage.


    Whilst bridal veils are still very popular, the way you accessorise them is up to your personal style. You can use floral or diamante crowns and even jewelled hair accessories to complete your look. Here are the most popular bridal veil styles!


    The Cathedral Veil

    The most regal of bridal veils and often worn by monarchs, a cathedral veil is traditionally 120cm in length but can be longer. The most traditional of bridal veil styles it complements traditional wedding dresses that also have trains. Cathedral veils are also worn with a blusher veil that matches the design and is usually mid length compared to the height of the bride.


     

    The Chapel Veil

    The chapel veil is slightly shorter than the cathedral veil where it is often the same length or slightly longer than the brides’ wedding dress. Similarly, the chapel veil can be worn with a blusher veil. The chapel veils are chosen for its elegant and sophistication. You can either opt to have an embellished edge especially if you have chosen lace or opt for the simplistic design of the fabric you have chosen (such as tulle).

    The Fingertip Veil

    The fingertip veil draws its name from the fact that its length is measured from the bride’s head to her fingertip. It can be worn in various ways and accessories, and not to mention trimmed with embellishments or simply left as is with a trimmed hem. It’s an ideal choice for brides who want to opt out of the long length but still carry off the elegance of a beautiful veil.


    The Birdcage Veil

    original_delicate-birdcage-veil

    This type of veil carries a vintage look and it is ideal for brides who would rather not wear a veil longer than their shoulders. Made from netting, the length of the birdcage veil can vary between either covering the nose or the chin. There are many ways to wear with veil such as from the front or the side and adding embellishments and accessories is recommended too. Many brides love opting for a birdcage veil especially if they are fond of 1920s style!

    The Blusher Veil

    A blusher veil is what the bride will wear to cover her face while walking down the aisle. In terms of length, it usually reaches the bride’s elbows but you can also opt for a shorter style at shoulder length too. The bride can choose to either wear only a blusher veil or couple it with a cathedral or chapel veil.

    The Drop Bridal Veil

    il_570xN.564839354_myin

    The drop veil is one of the easiest to wear and remove as well, as it is a circular fabric that can be embellished if you wish. It is simply draped over the bride’s head and you need not use a hair comb to fix it to your hair. However, you can style it with a jewelled headband or crown or even a floral crown. Princess Grace and Kate Middleton both wore drop veils. The now Duchess of Cambridge wore it over her crown by fixing it to its back so that when lifted it was still secured (and would not fly away).

  • Stunning Wedding Decor

    Planning a wedding consists of many things, but overall, it is the decor that helps make an impact and convey your wedding vision. It is not just about the floral centrepieces anymore. You have many things to consider if you have chosen a separate venue for your ceremony and reception. This is especially true since they will need decorating. Another fact you should consider is that how you choose to decorate your wedding day also depends on the venues. You can make them stand out with some unique statement pieces. This week, we have curated some stunning wedding decor looks that we hope will inspire you to include in your wedding day.

  • Your Wedding Catering Style with Cocktails and Canapés

    Many things go into ensuring your special day ends up being perfect. One such wedding planning aspect would be food and beverages, including choosing the right caterer and wedding catering style. There are many types of wedding catering styles to think of, one such being a cocktail wedding service with canapés. You need to think about the variety of food you are offering. Another item on the list would be how best your reception will be staged in terms of design and style to ensure all your guests are happy and content.

     

     

    DreamDay Invitations Canapes Only Wedding Reception

     

    To make things easier, we are looking into how wedding cocktails and canapés would be the best choice of catering for your wedding. We have decided to evaluate it according to the variety of food, cost, logistics, timing, and satisfaction levels.

     

     

    Canapés are essentially bite-sized. If you are having a “Canapés Only” wedding and not following it up with either a lunch or a dinner meal, then you need to follow a few rules. You need to make sure that there at least 12-15 pieces per person and balance them across meat, fish, and vegetarian canapé options. You can add a variety of hot/cold and savoury/sweet canapé choices, and a few canapés that are filling. Picking the final canapés menu may be a bit tough, and it is a good idea to request your guests’ choice of food between meat, fish, and vegetarian. This is in order to understand how your menu should be set according to the number of invitees.

     

    DreamDay Invitations Cocktail Wedding Reception Canapes

     

    Whilst serving small food sizes can keep your food costs down, it depends on the package you are choosing too. That is, per piece or person. If you are having an intimate wedding, then choosing a package that is based on per person pricing is ideal. If you were planning a canapés only meal not followed by lunch or dinner, then per-piece pricing would be best suited in such a scenario. The cost of your canapés may also depend on the choice of ingredients; therefore consider these before setting your catering package.

     

     

    There is a good chance you may have accounted for canapés based on a certain amount per person. However, you need to be realistic and understand that it may not always be executed in this way. While you have estimated a certain number of canapés per person, there is no way of guaranteeing that it will be done so accordingly. It all depends on circulation, the number of waiters you have hired for the reception and more.

     

     

    DreamDay Invitations Wedding Catering Style Cocktails and Canapes Reception

     

    However, because a cocktail wedding reception is flexible and not limited by time, you can choose how the canapés are served. You can choose to circulate the plates all at once, or over the course of a few hours. However, if the canapés are “Roaming Canapés” there may be a good chance that not everyone will receive them.

     

    With more and more people tuning into great food related TV programmes and the internet offering you insight into food inspiration, couples are better informed. If you are a foodie, you may have an idea of the kind of food you would like to serve too. Therefore, consider make an informed decision whether a cocktail reception is the best choice for you.

    We love the look of these dull gold candlesticks with these blooming beauties! They just look amazing! The simple gold feather detailing against the white cake is bold and chic!

    Vintage Outdoor Wedding Glam

    The use of a draped sheet in neutral tones frames this intimate and sophisticated garden setting; whilst simultaneously drawing attention to the main focal point – a crystal chandelier. Furthermore, the inclusion of a gilt mirror creates the illusion of a larger, brighter space.

    gilded accessories

    vintage-glam-wedding-main-650x400

    One of the easiest and most simplistic ways of incorporating your glam style into your wedding theme is with the likes of china, glassware, and cutlery. Gold rimmed glassware, gold plates, or even cutlery makes for a beautiful look especially if the complementing colour palette is neutral.

    romantic-glam-wedding-inspiration

    The same goes with the likes of Tiffany chairs in gold or any other metallic hue to your liking.

    Gold or copper mercury vases are just as beautiful in rustic glam styling as it brings simplicity with a touch of sophistication to the stage. We love these floral and decor arrangements even though not symmetrical or perfect, they go so well together!

    Go Big or Go Home Glam

    Vintage-Nautical-Glam-Wedding-Sequoia-Georgetown-Waterfront-Ship-Wheel-Centerpiece1

    While not minimalistic or simple, they really do scream glam! Utilising sequinned tablecloth is a great way of getting incorporating your glam theme into your wedding design. However, what we would really like to highlight is the creative use of the Ship’s Wheel as the base for the floral arrangement.

  • Putting together Your Wedding Planning Binder


    What every bride who wants a dream day wedding should know is that there is a LOT of wedding planning that will go down before the big day. This is in order for everything to go off smoothly without a hitch on the day you are hitched. It will include everything you want to, need to, and should do before, during, and after the big day. Think of this as your wedding planning bible, the grounding source of sanity while wedding planning takes you through the ups and downs of putting the perfect day all together. We did a bit of research and found out from various sources what you need for your binder, what exactly you should include in your wedding planning binder, and how you should go about managing it.

     

    Wedding Planning Book

     

    Essentially your wedding planning binder should include what your inspirations are, as well as include what you have finalised on (your wedding look-book, if you will).  You may also include all the financials, and not to mention the ever important assignments and to-do lists/checklists!

    There are a few essentials that you need, but also some optional items (which we believe can be extremely helpful to have). You will need the following.

     

    Wedding Planning Binder Cover

     

    A Three-Ring Folder/Binder:  This folder or binder should be sturdy and the size should reflect the type of wedding you are planning to have. A formal wedding may require more planning, therefore opt for a bigger size to accommodate more pages.

     

    Wedding Planning Binder Stationery Supplies

     

    Dividers, Clear Pockets, Re-sealable Bags, Tabs, Clear Protector Sheets, and Business Card Holders: These will be essential in making sure you are organised by knowing how to divvy up the areas accordingly. You should make sure you document the samples, changes, and choices, to be able to have all your vendor information in one place. You may use the re-sealable bags to include vendors receipts/payments and other bits and bobs for your reference.

     

    Wedding Planning Binder Printables

     

    Printouts of calendars, guest lists, worksheets, contracts, correspondence, thank you lists and more: Having these included in the wedding planning binder will allow you to have it in a central location. By having your guest list written down, you can use it for reference when planning various things from your wedding invitations, to seating charts, plans, and even thank you cards. There are various free printables available for your reference that can be edited on your computer to personalise them accordingly. Check out the following sources for such printables:

     

    Real Simple

     

    WedPlan

     

    Wedding Planning Post Its

     

    Reinforcement stickers, tabbed post-its and other accessories: The likes of reinforcement stickers will help the punched holes not give away to wear and tear, as well as the use of Post Its to help manage important sections and even with various notes such as to help with seating plans.

  • Wedding Invitations and Stationery Trends in 2016


    First and foremost, a very Happy New Year from all of us at the DreamDay Invitations! We would like to wish all our customers, fans and followers all the very best and hope that you have all welcomed 2016 with happiness and health!

     

    As wedding invitations and stationery is our forte, we would very much like to let you in on some of the trends the wedding industry in Australia (and the world) will see more of this year! To go with them, we have also featured some of our new wedding invitations designs. These designs are also available as a wedding stationery suite for your wedding ceremony and reception too!

     

    Botanically Inspired

    We expect to see more botanically inspired wedding invitations suites featuring beautiful flora and foliage in different styles and art forms. Depending on the various choices of inspiration taken from nature, be it wild flower bouquets to scenery, we will continue to see the beauty of nature. We look forward to seeing designs with attention to detail yet with a soft finish where wedding invitation suites will feature sketches, watercolours and to high-end finishes featuring nature’s bounty.

     

    Here are some of our botanically inspired wedding invite favourites!

    Rustic with a Woodland Feel

    Rustic weddings are a favourite for many brides (and grooms). It is another way the nature inspired trend that was much loved in 2015 (as well as a few years before that) will continue to wow us. Rustic wood grain designs, illustrated trees and wild animals (owls, foxes, and deer) are in the books. Another factor that will come into play will be the choice of paper. Consider Kraft or recycled papers for a great texture to complement your wedding stationery!

     

    Here are some of our rustic and woodland feel wedding invite favourites!

    Water colour Illustrations

    One of the stationery trends that blew up in the past year, we will definitely see more of these in various forms in 2016 too. This can be with illustrations of memories to clue your wedding guests of your love story, to botanic or rustic scenes and not to mention just opting for creative typography. Riding on the coattails of creativity and beautiful design, we are excited to see how water colour wedding invitations and stationery will transforms weddings in 2016!

     

    Here are some of our water colour illustrated wedding invite favourites!

    It’s in the Type

    Typography is still in (frankly, we believe it is something that will never go out of style)! Whether formal or informal, your choice of typography can bring out your intended wedding style with personality. You can transform a crisp white wedding invite card into a work of art with the use of the right typeface and lettering.

     

    Here are some of our typography wedding invite favourites!

    Minimalist Chic

    Another timeless style that is often held hand in hand with classic two toned wedding invites (black and white being favoured greatly). You can’t go wrong with sleek minimalism! Choose quality paper stock, fuse it with some metallic touches for an added glam, but importantly keep the design open and minimal.

     

    Here are some of our minimalistic chic wedding invite favourites!

    Gilded and Glamorous

    Metallic hues will hang around this year too, but with more focus placed on warmer tones (moving away from silver) with rose gold being a favourite. Highlight minimalist designs or accent an illustrated or typography design with metallic tones.

     

    Here are some of our metallic wedding invite favourites!

    A Touch of Colour

    A little colour will always be appreciated and we love them in the use of highlights or borders to make your wedding invitations (and stationery) pop! We love brighter tones for the warmer seasons and deeper shades for the colder seasons.

    Creative Seating

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Creative Seating Plans

    We recently wrote a blog post on Creative Wedding Seating Styles and Ideas that will be of great use in 2016. Designers have forecasted that wedding receptions may move away from traditional seating choices and styles to more out-of-the box options.

    Sit Down Dinners and Gueridon Service

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Sit Down Dinner Gueridon Service

    While 2015 was all about food stations, we will be moving onto classic sit-down dinners with pre-set menus. Imagine how beautiful your sovereign menu cards will be. That will also mean you should include food preference information in your RSVP card when sending out your wedding invitation package! However, apart from the wait staff serving your choice of menu, brides and grooms can also opt for gueridon service (a trolley service, where food is cooked, finished or presented to guests at their table from a moveable trolley).  Dishes that can be served via gueridon service include Caesar salads, and steak tartar to name a few.

    Pretty Wedding Cakes

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Naked Wedding Cakes

    Naked cakes are still on trend. Naked cakes are unfrosted or partially frosted for a refined and classy look to a rustic cake. They can be finished off by accessorising them with berries or fresh flowers.

    DreamDay Invitations 2016 Wedding Trends Handpainted Wedding Cakes

    Apart from “naked” cakes, you can still opt for a completely fondant covered cake which can then be accessorised with hand-painted icing. This wedding cake style is versatile and elegant. Many brides who love the idea of watercolour wedding invitations and stationery can carry the design through to the wedding cake. All you need is to use similar brush strokes and colour palettes used on the outer facade of the wedding cake.

  • Picking Your Wedding Shoes


    One of the most important wedding fashion requirements (aside from the wedding dress) are your wedding shoes! It’s important to find something that you love, that matches your wedding dress and importantly is comfortable for walking in.

    Popular Wedding Shoes Styles

    Picking your wedding Shoes Popular Wedding Shoes Styles

    There are many styles of wedding shoes out there, but if we were to stick to a few favourites, they would include sandals, strappy heels, slingbacks, booties, flats, ballet shoes, t-strap pumps, pointed toes and not forgetting peep-toes. The colour and texture of the shoes also makes a difference, but that is a completely different shoe-game altogether. Gone are the days where bridal shoes should definitely be white. Metallic colours and even something blue (or any other colour of your choosing) is perfect. It’s all about preference and how you have envisioned your look!

    The following are some fabulous picks courtesy of OneFabDay!

    Preparing Your Wedding Shoes for the Big Day

    Picking Your Wedding Shoes Preparing Your Wedding Shoes for the Big Day

    New shoes can at times be really hard on your feet, therefore, you should prepare yourself and your shoes for the big day in advance. Do not leave your bridal shoe purchase to the last minute. Follow these tips to make sure you avoid cursing your beautiful shoes on the day!

    Breaking into your Wedding Shoes

    Picking Your Wedding Shoes Breaking in Your Wedding Shoes

    This is something you need to do a few weeks beforehand. You need to break your shoes in so that they don’t pinch you and give you blisters on your big day. Start wearing them indoors for small periods of time, slowly increasing the time you spend in them as they day draws nearer. By doing so, you are moulding the shoes to fit your feet and allowing you to get accustomed to walking and standing in them. Some brides even wear their wedding dresses to make sure they are able to manoeuvre themselves and their long (and possibly heavy) wedding dress in heels (especially if you’ve opted for really high heels). It is recommended that you stick to 3 inches to ensure you don’t strain your ankles.

    Making Adjustments for Floor Surfaces

    Picking your Wedding Shoes Making Adjustments for Floor Surfaces

    One of the things that we don’t always account for when purchasing wedding shoes is the type of floor we’ll be on. One thing for sure, you don’t want to ruin your shoes and nor do you want to slip and fall. Therefore, keep in mind that you should be aware of these factors and purchase your wedding shoes accordingly or make adjustments for it. For example, if you are eyeing a beautiful pair of stiletto bridal shoes but you are having an outdoor wedding then investing in some heel protectors caps would be ideal. If you are going to be walking or dancing on polished floors, then getting some non-slip tape or shoe grips would be a good idea too!

    Wedding Reception Shoes

    Picking Your Wedding Shoes Wedding Reception Shoes

    Some brides opt to purchase a second pair of wedding shoes that are more comfortable for the reception. When doing so, it’s important to purchase your second pair at the same height to avoid dragging your wedding dress on the floor and potentially ruining it.
