Choosing gifts for your bridesmaids

You definitely love your bridesmaids and you are highly appreciative of the considerable efforts they’ve put into making you happy on (and before!) your wedding day. Therefore, you want to show them how much they mean to you by offering them the best gifts possible.

How to do that? How to actually choose marvelous bridesmaids’ gifts from the myriad of options available? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  •       Make it thoughtful. Your bridesmaids will appreciate a meaningful gift a million times more than something expensive, but impersonal. Think of gifts that define your relationship and their style –it doesn’t have to be ultra-expensive to mean a lot to your bridesmaids!
  •        Don’t forget about the little ones. Just because they don’t bear the official “bridesmaid” title, it doesn’t mean flower girls don’t deserve a nice gift. Choose something cute and age-appropriate for the most adorable member of your wedding party – she will always remember it!
  •        Make it unique and useful. Planning a wedding in the cooler season? Offer your bridesmaids shawls or wraps. Want to make sure they will all be able to dance even as the night falls? Offer them cute flats to match with their attires! Want your special ladies to feel glamorous and stunning? Pay for their hairstyling and make up services! There are a ton of useful and beautiful gifts you settle on!
  •       Last, but definitely not least, keep it a surprise. None of your bridesmaids should know about their gifts – not even the Maid of Honor. So, this task is entirely on you – make it personal and sprinkle it with your endless love!

How to stretch your wedding budget

Your wedding budget is of the utmost importance – and although you might feel tempted to spend too much on the big day, the truth is that this can attract a lot of financial trouble later on.

Probably not – and this is precisely why we have gathered some of the most important things for you to know about stretching your wedding budget. Read on to find out more.



  •        Don’t book a separate ceremony site. Chances are your wedding venue has a really nice spot where you can have your ceremony – and it will cost much less to rent both the ceremony and the reception spaces as a “package”.
  •       Don’t spend too much on expensive wedding d├ęcor. You can add uniqueness and personality to your wedding day by bringing in personal items that are truly meaningful for you as a couple. Guests will love this!
  •        Can’t spend too much on the drinks? Add a bit of originality to them by coloring them in unusual colors. You can even have them match your wedding color scheme!
  •       Flowers are of quite important, but you don’t have to settle on imported blooms. Choose whatever is in season, focus on large, beautifully arranged bouquets. Also, make sure not to overspend on the vessels either – you can pull off stunning arrangements without extra-pricy vases.


·        Last, but definitely not least, book your venue off-season. Not only will it be more special to have an early spring, fall, or winter wedding – but it will also cost a lot less than a full-summer event.

What guests dislike about weddings

The last thing you want at your wedding are guests that don’t enjoy themselves – so you will want to do everything you can to make sure everyone’s happy at your big day. What are the things guests dislike most about weddings? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.



  •        Weddings that take place during three-day weekends. It may sound like a really amazing idea to have a three-day weekend wedding, but it is more than likely that a lot of guests will have other plans for that min-vacation. Avoid these weekends for your big day – and if you absolutely must have your wedding on a national holiday weekend, be sure to let everyone know about it long before the big day arrives.
  •        Receiving lines. Everyone hates these – so why have them anyway? We all know wedding etiquette is much more relaxed these days, so you can definitely skip the traditional receiving line and simply meet and greet everyone at their tables. It saves time, creates a much warmer and welcoming atmosphere, and it helps you re-organize your wedding day schedule in a way that’s genuinely enjoyable.
  •        Bad directions to/from your wedding venue and ceremony site. You really don’t want your guests to go MIA as a result of your bad directions – so it’s highly advisable that you do everything in your power to make sure they can easily reach all points of interest. Maps, pictures, directions, GPS coordinates – they can all help. Furthermore, asking someone to actually “test” the instructions will surely help you spot any potential errors.
