Your wedding dress can have a little sex appeal

Many brides believe their wedding dresses absolutely have to be nice, clean, puritan, and delicate. However, the truth is that every bride is different in her own way, and her dress should mirror her style and personality in a beautiful way.

  • So, is it allowed to have a wedding dress with just a dash of sex appeal? We have some tips to help you with this – continue reading and find out more.
  • Of course you are allowed to do this! Your wedding dress is all about you and what makes you feel absolutely stunning – and if a tad of sexiness is what you need to achieve this, then you are more than free to do it.
  • Remember, though – you should be sexy, but we advise you to avoid anything that might strike as too vulgar. Ideally, you will want to keep it to one revealing element – the décolletage, the back, the short dress, or the see-through fabric. Combining too many revealing parts may come across as too much for a bride. On the other hand, it would be absolutely breathtaking to wear a sophisticated gown (such as a long dress with a deep plunging back.
  • Furthermore, don’t forget that the best way to feel sexy is by wearing a dress that truly flatters you. For this reason, we advise you to find a wedding gown silhouette that embraces your body in a harmonious, beautiful way. There’s nothing sexier than self-confidence – and a well-sewn, beautifully-designed wedding dress can really help you with this!

Be unique with a creative photo display at your wedding

Your wedding day is such a special, unforgettable and amazingly important event in your life! Naturally, it will always be associated with pure happiness and beauty – so why wouldn’t you “connect the dots” and use some of your favorite couple photos for your wedding décor too? It will make everything more sentimental and personal, that’s for sure!

If you’re decided to do this, read on and inspire yourself, because we’ve gathered some of the best and most unique photo display ideas for your Big Day.
  •  Use an old mirror as the support. This works wonderfully well if you’re planning a vintage or shabby-chic wedding, especially if you have a mirror with an antique finish. Plus, the shine of the mirror will add light to your wedding reception venue, so using this idea is very space savvy too!
  • Fall in love with mason jars (again). These little guys have been around the wedding world for so many years, nobody can even know how it all started. One thing is for certain though: mason jars and weddings do get along very well. Stick your engagement and romantic photos on the inside of some mason jars and use these as centerpiece holders – it will look fantastic and really personal too!
  • Make it fairy-tale worthy with balloons. Take some helium-filled balloons and stick your favorite pictures to the ribbons that tie them – then, allow the balloons to float. It will look so wonderful, so romantic, and so unique!

Don’t have any regrets about your wedding

There’s nothing bitterer than regretting anything at your wedding. Given that this is an unrepeatable event in your life, regrets are not invited on the guest list – but how do you make sure they really stay away from all the happiness associated with the Big Day?

  • We have gathered some of the things many couples regret not doing for their weddings – so read on and inspire yourself from their experiences.
  •  Not investing in a high-quality photographer and a talented DJ. These people are the brick and mortar of any successful wedding. The first will capture the beauty and emotion of the Big Day, while the second will make sure you and all of your guests are having the time of your lives. Yes, it is very important to invest in amazing services here!
  • Not taking a few minutes off to spend with your SO. This is your wedding day and getting away for a couple of minutes is more than alright. Spend a bit of time together to share all the wonderful emotions you’re experiencing now – you will remember these moments with more candor than anything else.
  • Not attending the beauty trials. No matter how experienced and famous a wedding hairstylist or makeup artist may be, they cannot simply figure it out on the spot. So, if you want your bridal look to be really amazing, do make sure to attend your beauty trials. This is where you will establish if your style is well-suited for you, and make all necessary adjustments to make sure you feel fantastic on your Big Day.

8 Last Minute Wedding Details You Can't Forget About

We all know planning a wedding is no easy task – and while you surely have everything in order, there are always those small details that can very easily slip away. What are some of the most important last minute wedding details you can’t forget about? Read here and find out more.

  •      Your last wedding gown fitting. This is one step you definitely need to do as close to the wedding as possible (so that all the small last minute adjustments are made).
  •     Writing a note for your groom. He is the love of your life – so why not sweeten his Big Day even more by sending him a beautiful, romantic note? He will more than appreciate it!
  •      Appoint someone to be the go-to person. It may be your Maid of Honor, your mom or anyone else. This person should be completely reliable, because they will basically replace you in giving instructions and helping the guests around.
  •      Prepare the tips. Although it will not be you who gives away the tips (usually, that’s the Best Man or another close member of the wedding party), you should still make sure to have them prepared before the wedding day.
  •       Re-confirm all deliveries. Be 100% your cake, your flowers and your food will be there on time on the Big Day!
  •       Confirm all back-up plans, specifically the “bad weather Plan B”. Yes, we never like to think of the worst case scenario, but taking it into consideration and planning for it can be a true life-saver.
  •      Finish up your “getting ready” timeline. Remember, you should allow some “extra” for this so that you don’t run out of time!
  •       Pack for your honeymoon and send your luggage to the hotel. The last thing you want to worry with on the morning of your wedding is how and what to pack. Carefully plan this ahead and send the luggage before you, so that you can simply pack it up and escape into your honeymoon.

Looking for a wedding planner to help you make all this easier and smoother? Here at BA Bride Wedding and Event Planners, we have the experience, the passion and the attention to detail you need to make the Big Day happen…in Big Style. Contact us and let’s talk about your dream wedding!

The 5 Things Your Wedding Planner Need to Know About You

Hiring a wedding planner is an excellent move for those who want their Big Day to be flawless from its very beginning to its very end. And while it is definitely important that you research your vendor and know exactly who you are hiring, it is also crucial that they know a fair handful of things about you. Here are the top 5 most important things your wedding planner needs to know about you:
  •     Your budget. Don’t even start talking wedding style and theme before you lay out your budget. A professional wedding planner will listen and she will know exactly what can be done for your budget and how to maximize its power.
  •        Your likes. Of course, your wedding planner should know what you like, what are the things that mean a lot to you and what are those wedding elements you will never want to give up on. This way, she will know how to design a plan that makes you really happy with the end result.
  •        Your dislikes. That awful song that reminds you of when you got your heart broken? The irritating color you could never stand? Tell your wedding planner about all these dislikes you don’t want into your wedding and she’ll make sure these elements have no room in your Big Day.
  •     Your level of involvement. Some couples prefer a more hands-on approach, while others leave it all in the hands of their wedding planner. What type of bride and groom are you? Your wedding planner needs to know this!
  •       How you prefer to communicate. Do you text? Email? Call? Your wedding planner wants to know this so that you maintain proper communication with her. Talk to her about your preferred means of communication!

Is It Rude to Get Married on New Year's Eve?

Getting married on New Year’s Eve can be utterly romantic and sweet – especially when all the anticipation of the big countdown adds up to the love, emotion and beauty floating in the air during the wedding ceremony and reception.

  • Is it rude to get married on New Year’s Eve, though? We have some etiquette tips for you – so read on and find out more.
  •  In general, it is not considered rude to set your wedding on New Year’s Eve – especially if you have your heart set on this idea and if it’s something truly meaningful for you as a couple. This is your wedding and you are allowed to do as you please – as long as nobody else gets offended, of course.
  • If you do decide to get married on New Year’s Eve, it is important to remember that you have to give your guests as much time as possible to plan out the trip for your wedding day. Send your Save the Dates as soon as you can – but, at the same time, expect that some of your guests won’t be able to attend the Big Day. Because this is a very big holiday, a lot of people have made plans in advance and they might not be able to cancel those.
  • Last, but definitely not least, it is also essential that you prepare an adequate budget for a NYE wedding as well. Generally, venues and vendors charge more during the holidays, precisely because they are such a busy time of the year.

Why Avoid Certain Wedding Dates

Picking the right wedding date is essential if you want your Big Day to be a true success for everyone involved. And while you might have certain dates in mind and you might be thinking of specific meaningful days when you could get married, it is also important to know that certain wedding dates are not a good idea.

What are the wedding dates to avoid, and why? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  •         In general, you are free to choose whatever wedding date is best for you. However, there are certain dates when specific locations get more crowded and even more expensive than in the rest of the year. The busier a location is, the harder it will be for you to plan a wedding and truly make the most of your special day.
  •         National holiday weekends do sound great for weddings, especially since many people have more spare time to travel to and from your wedding location. However, if you have your heart set on a Memorial Day or any other national holiday wedding, you should definitely avoid the most crowded areas this time of the year (e.g. Washington DC will get extremely busy on national holiday weekends and planning a wedding there may be too difficult).
  •         Furthermore, you might want to avoid other holidays too. For instance, the National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place in late March/early April and attracts tourists from all over the country. Therefore, planning a wedding during one of these weekends will most likely not be a good idea in the Washington DC area.

The Hard Truths of Wedding Planning

Hiring the best planner and vendors is crucial for the success of the Big Day. And while they will all be more than eager to make you happy, it is also important that you know what your expectations should be.

  • What are the wedding planning things nobody actually tells you? We have gathered some of the hard truths of wedding planning – so read on and find out more.
  • You cannot make emergency calls to your planner and vendors all day long. In truth, there are very few issues that actually require an “emergency call”. Of course, your wedding planner will share your sadness if one of the bridesmaids can’t make it to the wedding, and they’ll be there to jot down small changes you make along the way. However, most of these things can be communicated via email – so calling your vendors or planner for them may not be an efficient idea.
  • Wedding planners and wedding vendors like holidays too. So finding good ones during the busiest times of the year might get more difficult than you think – and those who will be available are entitled to charge more. After all, you don’t want to be in the office on the 25th of December either – don’t you?
  • You cannot complain to your wedding planner for every fight you have with your fiancé, or for every quarrel you have with the Mother in Law. Your wedding planner is there to counsel you and offer you advice, but she cannot be your best friend and professional service provider all at once.

Tips to staying sane during the wedding planning

We all know just how hectic and downright stressful wedding planning can be. Yet, you should always remind yourself that you are doing this for a day of joy and happiness – and you should be able to enjoy it, instead of being too tired or anxious over everything that happened during the wedding planning process.

  • How to stay sane during the wedding planning? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
  • First and foremost, don’t feel pressured to plan the wedding in a certain amount of time. Take as much time as you need it – some of you may be perfectly fine with a 1-year engagement, while others may need longer.
  • Do whatever makes you feel good. A large part of the pressure experienced by brides and grooms is due to an archaic set of rules everyone feels they must follow. Sure, many wedding etiquette tips make perfect sense even in today’s world – but there are still a lot of things you can simply do your own way.
  • Relax. You need this – you need to take some time off every now and again and ensure you are getting the relaxation you need. Date nights, pampering at the spa, or simply spending an evening with Netflix and your loved one – they can all help you control the stress and feel better about the entire wedding planning process.
  • Don’t do it all alone. You are just one human being, and there are many around you who will be more than happy to lend you a helpful hand. Delegate some of the tasks to your Maid of Honor, fiancé, mother, bridesmaids, and anyone else who wants to help.

Do you know how to create your wedding seating arrangements?

Your wedding seating arrangement is absolutely crucial – both for the way you feel at your wedding and for the way your guests will enjoy themselves. So, how do you create the perfect wedding seating arrangement? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more

·        You don’t need a “head table”. While this used to be almost mandatory back when weddings were more traditional, it is far from being a “must” these days. However, you will need a table – and it can be a small table just for you and your loved one, or a table where you can seat your wedding party as well.
·        Allowing your guests to sit wherever you are can turn into a huge disaster – but you can definitely assign them to a certain table, and not a particular seat. This way, they will have a bit more freedom of choice and they will start the evening wherever they feel best.
·        Some couples choose to mingle the guests, so that they meet new people at the wedding. However, this might make some of the guests feel uncomfortable – so the best way to do this is by putting two groups of people at each table. If they get along, they will socialize among themselves, and if they are not in a very social mood, they can simply hang out with the people they already know.
·        As for the singles, be very careful about setting them up in very obvious ways. You can definitely place two singles at a table if you know they will like each other, but it might not be a good idea to create “all singles” tables, as this will probably make everyone there feel quite awkward.
