  • Wedding Colours by Meaning

The look and styling of the wedding invitations and stationery, bridesmaids’ dresses, florals, and more is inspired by the colour you choose for your wedding. You can choose one focal colour, two complementing or contrasting wedding colours, or more!

    If you love the idea of the wedding being themed after colour and it’s meanings or love incorporating symbolism into your life, then you may find this blog post interesting.

    A bolder hue and one that symbolises strength, vitality, and health, it also represents power and passion. As a wedding colour, red is favoured greatly as you can put to use beautiful red roses. It is perfect for a nighttime wedding reception with a modern look, which would lovely against candlelight!

Why not celebrate it in your wedding in various shades of blue, choosing between light, aqua, and dark! Blue is often a favourite for beach weddings and could be the perfect “something blue” for your wedding day! We love the idea of using accessories to accent the colour!

    If you want your wedding to symbolise harmony and hope, then green is perfect! Olive or emerald is extremely popular choices of colour for your wedding theme! It is perfect for this year’s trend, with foliage and flora being ever so popular. We love the idea of incorporating succulents into everything!


    DreamDay Invitations Wedding Colours Brown

    Brown represents stability, and is a great choice of wedding colour for a rustic style. If you are hosting your wedding during autumn, you can add a harvest twist to it too! Incorporate wood finishes and accents to bring an earthiness to the look!

  • English Elegance Wedding Theme Inspiration

    Elegance is often synonymous with traditional wedding design featuring white intertwined with decorative elements such as filigree, lace, and subtle design styles. When it comes to “English Elegance,” this style is said to be inspired by English roses. With many varieties in season year-round and available in an assortment of delicate shades, roses are a fragrant and ideal choice for an “English Elegance” wedding theme.


    English Elegance Wedding Style

    An English Elegance wedding is preferably held in an outdoor venue, be it a garden or estate grounds however, indoors is fine too. The focal flora can be complemented with accents such as the use of sheer drapery, accompanied by intricate decorative pieces seen with the choice of chairs, table number frames, and the wedding cake design.

    Tiffany chairs are ideal choices when coupled with sheer drapery and a rose accessory can be a more elegant alternative to that of a seat cover or bow/sash in satin.

    Novelty essentially means things that carry the quality of being original, new, or uncommon. In terms styling a wedding theme to feature novelty items, you may look at ways to wow your guests by featuring either decoration items or features that will stand out and has not been done before. One such idea that we love that would go brilliantly with English Elegance Wedding that puts a lot of focus on this year’s flora and foliage trend is a “Potpourri Bomboniere Station.” If you have chosen fragrant flowers, herbs and fruits, this will go very well with your overall wedding theme. Add these to a beautiful decorative jar and presto, you have yourself a practical wedding bomboniere for your guests. Do not forget to add a wedding bomboniere card to go with it.

    Corsages and boutonnieres are usually reserved for the bridal party, the families of the bride and groom. However, there are exceptions based on what you want to do your wedding. There have been times where the bride and groom have decided to give out flowers to all the wedding guests. So why not have a corsage and boutonniere for each of your wedding guests with their place cards as a lovely novelty touch to your elegant wedding.

  • 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

Princess Diana died of a lunge haemorrhage early 31 August 1997 in Paris after surgery following a high-speed car crash in which her companion Egyptian millionaire Dodi el-Fayed was also killed.

    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



    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





    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).

  • 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.
