Engaged? Start Saving for These Wedding Elements

Your wedding deserves the very best – right? And while we totally encourage our brides to dream big and create the kind of wedding that makes them feel truly special, we also encourage them to take their budgets into account.

What are some of the less-emphasized, yet still very important elements to start planning as soon as possible? We have gathered them right below – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • The honeymoon. OK, there might be at least one year before you go on your honeymoon – but, as you may very well know it, booking travel arrangements sooner is always best. First of all, you will be 100% certain everything is fully done by the time you make your grand wedding exit. Secondly, you can save a lot of money this way – so start putting it aside and book the perfect honeymoon.
  • Gifts. You want to show your bridesmaids and, of course, your significant other, that you care about them. Put some money aside for the gifts as well – even if you don’t find something perfectly suitable right now, it will be great to know you have already set aside a budget for this.
  • Marriage license. This may be just a piece of paper – but it’s the paper that attests your marriage is legal. After all, this is at the very core of your wedding day – so be sure to plan ahead and save money for the associated costs as well. They may not be large, but you shouldn’t overlook them.

These Bridal Shower Games Are so Fun!

Adding a couple of games to the bridal shower you are planning can only make it even more enjoyable – so why not do it? To help you with this, we’ve gathered some of the most entertaining and fun bridal shower games out there – so read on if you need to steal a little inspiration.

  •         Scratch off games. These are the simplest games you could play – all you need is to order personalized scratch off cards and offer them to the guests. Our recommendation is to offer an actual prize based on these cards, it will make people feel really excited and it will definitely help them create nice memories.
  •         Jeopardy, wedding edition. How well do the guests actually know the bride? Why not organize an entire contest out of this? If prizes are also in the game, guests will be even more competitive and it will generate a lot of entertainment and fun!
  •         Find the guest. Create a list of special tasks each guests has to accomplish and make sure each of these tasks involves learning something about another guest. For instance, the list could include things such as “find the guest from New York”, “find the guest who has three daughters”, and so on. This is a great ice-breaker as it will help people get to know each other.
  •        How old was she? Collect a bunch of pictures with the bride as the kid and ask guests what age they think she was. Whoever gets the largest number of right answers gets, of course, a prize!

Wear Unique Shoes as a Bride!

Everything should be unique for you as a bride! From the headpiece you wear (or not wear, for that matter) to the shoes that will walk you down the aisle, every single detail of your bridal look should be flawlessly mirroring your own personality and beauty (both inside and out).

How to make sure you wear a pair of really unique shoes at your wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •        Have them personalized. A really trendy way of doing this is by having the soles of the shoes customized with a beautiful calligraphic message – such as “I love you”, “Yours”, your wedding date, and so on. This is a great idea because it will not disrupt your wedding style too much, but you can still show off these shoes for a couple of pictures in the wedding album!
  •        To make this really special, you could have your shoe sole messages written in blue. This way, your footwear will also double as your “something blue”. And if you want to take this tradition even further, you could have a sixpence glued on your sole as well!
  •        Want to create a magical moment with your lovely bridesmaids before getting ready for the Big Day? Ask them to write their messages on the sole of your shoes! This is a very unique and beautiful way of showing them just how much they mean to you – and it’s a great souvenir too!

Our services will help you have the most fantastic wedding your guests have ever been to – MINUS all the stress so many brides go through!

How to Incorporate This Year’s Pantone Color into Your Wedding

Every Pantone Color of the Year is amazing in its own way – from the Masala that continues to be popular even a few years after it was declared “Color of the Year” to the 2018 Ultra Violet, all Pantone’s choices are truly amazing.

If, however, you are in love with the Ultra Violet they proposed for this year, you will definitely love the idea of incorporating it into your Big Day. How to do that in a classy, beautiful way? We have some suggestions for you – so read on and find out more.

  •       Sweets. Add a bit of violet to your sweets and you will definitely love the effect it creates. For instance, a white wedding cake with violet flowers or violet designs on it will look absolutely amazing. And if you want to add something extra sweet and nice to the mix, why not offer guests rock candy in amethyst colors? They will be more than impressed.
  •        Drinks. Of course, you can add Ultra Violet to your drinks as well! For instance, you could create a wedding signature cocktail with Blue Curacao and cranberry juice – the color will be very close to Pantone’s 2018 choice, and it will look really, really beautiful!
  •         Flowers. There’s an abundance of purple flowers you can use with your Ultra Violet wedding color scheme – and yes, they’re available in most seasons, so you won’t have to worry about this in any way. Your bouquet and d├ęcor will be infused with purple energy from these stunning blooms!

Are There Any Winter Alternatives to Peonies?

Peonies have slowly grown to be among the most popular wedding flowers. Truly, they are delicate and beautiful, and they have a very festive feeling about them that makes them perfect for such happy, unforgettable events.

What happens if your wedding is set during the winter or fall, though, when peonies are not as widely available – and more expensive?

We have some tips to help you with this – so read on and learn about some of the loveliest winter alternatives to peonies.

  • English roses. Perhaps one of the best replacements for the classic peonies, English roses come in a very large variety of colors, making them easy to coordinate with a lot of wedding color schemes. Moreover, they’re available throughout the entire cool season – so you will not have issues finding them at decent prices.
  • Chrysanthemums. This is a fall flower by definition, and you will see it included in autumn weddings quite often. A bloom filled with energy and beautiful simplicity, it is truly a great choice – especially if you’re just looking for something to “buff” your peony bouquet in a non-expensive way.
  • Double flowering tulips. Elegant in their pure simplicity, tulips are always an amazing choice for brides. Double flowering tulips, however, strike the perfect balance between sophistication and opulence – and they are widely available during the fall as well. Therefore, they make for excellent peony replacements, precisely because they have the same ruffled, rich look (but they are far more affordable during the cold season).

When Should You Have Your Wedding?

Setting a wedding day is extremely important because it will influence every single part of the wedding planning. Before you get to a particular date, though, you should first find the right season for you and your Big Day.

How to do that? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Your budget will have a say in this. If you have a restricted budget, our advice is to set a wedding season outside of the most popular ones (spring and summer). From September to March, prices for venues and vendors tend to be lower – and you can still plan a truly dreamy wedding in these months as well.
  • Of course, you should LIKE the season you choose for your wedding. If you are a person who loves warmth and sunshine and set a wedding date in full November, you might feel that it’s not like you have always wanted it to be. You could, for example, have a March wedding or a September wedding instead (if budget is an issue).
  • Last, but definitely not least, consider the wedding style you want as well. For instance, if you want to have an outdoor rustic wedding, doing this in the winter may be a lot more difficult than doing it in any other season. Likewise, if you want to wear a strapless wedding dress made from veil and lace, you might find that it’s not a feasible option for a chilly month of December…

Yes, You Can Definitely Serve Comfort Foods at Your Wedding!

Weddings have changed quite a lot in the past couple of decades – especially from the point of view of how casual they can be today. Sure, you can have a totally mindblowing, elegant wedding – but if you want something more relaxed and intimate, there are a lot of casual wedding ideas you can definitely incorporate into your Big Day.

Comfort foods are among some of the very best wedding ideas these days. Why? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •        Everyone loves them. Name someone who doesn’t love a good bowl of mac and cheese, who doesn’t want to indulge in overly syrup-y pancakes, or who doesn’t enjoy a perfectly well-made burger. If you thought more than 5 minutes about this, it is more than likely that everyone at your wedding will love your comfort food ideas.
  •         They are easy to serve. Of course, there are a thousand ways to present a burger, but beyond that, finding vegetarian, lactose-free or gluten-free replacements or alternatives for comfort foods is fairly easy. That happens because these foods are so widely known that people have adapted to the different special diets as well.
  •        They are inexpensive. If you want to save money on your wedding menu and not sacrifice your guests’ satisfaction, this is the way to do it. Serving different types of comfort food can be a truly budget-savvy choice, even when you go for the higher-end ingredients!

Looking for a wedding planner who will really go the extra mile to make sure you are fully happy with the Big Day? Look no further! Contact B.A. Bride Wedding and Event Planning and allow us to be the ones who will make your dream wedding come true!
