Every couple is unique in their own way – and as such, every wedding should be unique too. Of course, wedding trends can inspire you to create an event that mirrors your style and personality – but how about your love story? How about the things that define you as a couple, the road you’ve walked on to reach this point, the moments you shared?

Well, there are ways to include that in the wedding as well – and following, we have gathered some of the best tips to help you make your Big Day more personal. Read on and find out more.

  • Connect the wedding with the proposal. The moment of the proposal is one of the most important ones in your lives as a couple – so it only makes sense that you would include this in the wedding. If the proposal happened somewhere special or if a distinctive element was included in it, you could bring that into your wedding too. For instance, let’s say he proposed in New York City – then you could incorporate the Statue of Liberty in something cute, like the welcome bags or the wedding favors.
  • Connect them with the menu. If you and your loved one have foods that mean something for you – such as foods you always make when you have a date night, the first food you ate together, or foods you discovered in your travels, you should definitely include them in your wedding menu. Furthermore, if you have special foods that celebrate the places you come from or your ancestry, you should include those too.
  • Connect them with the theme. Do you have a favorite book or a favorite movie? You could definitely pull off an elegant wedding incorporating those themes. For instance, if you like Harry Potter, you can include motifs from this movie/ book into your wedding. For instance, you could use potion bottles for the wedding centrepieces, and you can group guests at large rectangular tables according to their “House” or at smaller tables, according to your favorite characters.

We don’t generally like to think of the worst that could happen – and much less for such a special day as our wedding day.

However, being prepared is always better than feeling sorry that you didn’t “think of it”, and this is where wedding insurance comes in.

What are some of the most important things you should know about this type of insurance and why would you get it?

Read on and find out more.

  • Wedding insurance will give you the peace of mind to simply go on with your wedding planning and then enjoy your Big Day, as you so very much deserve. This type of insurance policy can cover you in case of property damage, body injuries, forced cancellations, and so on. Obviously, as mentioned in the beginning, most people are not very keen to think of these worst case scenarios – but it’s always best to be safer, rather than sorry, right?
  • Wedding insurance will not add too much to your spent budget either – but it can be a real life saver. Imagine luxurious items getting broken by an uncle who has had one too many drinks, and imagine how you would feel if you had to pay for those. Isn’t it better to pay for the insurance policy and cover yourself for this kind of situations?
  • Last, but definitely not least, wedding insurance will not add to the hassle of the wedding planning either. Acquiring such an insurance policy is a fairly straightforward process, it costs less than you imagine, and it can really provide you with the tranquility you need.
  • In the end, it all narrows down to one question: are you an absolute optimist and you simply hope that nothing will go terribly wrong, or are you feeling rather anxious about the things that could go wrong regardless of how well you plan the Big Day? If you fall in the latter category, definitely go for wedding insurance – it is without doubt the best thing you can do for your health, for your mental state, and for your wedding itself.

If you have been tasked with the planning of a bridal shower, you definitely want everything about it to be unforgettable, both for the bride and for the guests too.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to stick to the traditional bridal shower held at home. You can always think of a unique alternative that will be enjoyed by everyone!

What are some of the best bridal shower alternatives?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Pool party. Did someone say summer? There’s truly no other better way to celebrate summer, other than by organizing a pool party. If you know the bride would be in on this, and if you know the guests will love it too, there’s no reason not to plan a pool party for her bridal shower. Everyone will have so much fun!
  • Makeover party. Making a makeover the central entertainment piece of the bridal shower will be so fun for all the ladies! You can actually make everyone feel really pampered by hiring stylists and makeup artists to change your guests’ looks while you all chit-chat, have fun, and the bride opens her gifts.
  • Wine tasting. If your friend is a big wine lover and if you know the other guests would definitely fancy the idea too, wine tasting is a really good way to celebrate. It’s classy, it’s fun, and it’s far more unique than a classic bridal shower – so it has all the ingredients to be a real success among guests.
  • A special class. How about turning this bridal shower into a special class the ladies can learn something from? It can be a painting class, a cooking class, or anything else you know the bride would genuinely enjoy. In between the lessons, she can open the gifts and thank everyone for their wonderful gesture, and then you can all return to having fun color, yarn, or whatever else your main theme may be!

Your bridal bouquet is more than just a pretty arrangement of flowers – it is a statement, and it’s part of the entire look you will create for the most beautiful day in your life.

Adding berries to your bouquet will make it look not only more unique, but also better suited for a summer or fall wedding when berries abound in all their delicious and beautiful glory.  

What are some of the best ways on how to include berries in your wedding bouquet? Read on and find out more.

  • For a blush-colored bouquet. Blush-toned flowers are among the single most popular options for weddings – and understandably so! They look romantic, suave, and timeless, and all these traits make them perfect for weddings! If you plan on having a blush-colored bouquet consisted of peonies, hydrangeas, and/or roses, be sure to slip in some soft-colored hypericum berries.
  • Dark-colored bouquet. If you plan on having your wedding this fall, a dark-colored bouquet is truly the best choice. Enigmatic and outstanding, this type of bridal bouquet makes a real statement. Plus, you can easily include red-colored berries in it too, which will make it all the more beautiful and special!
  • Black and white bouquet. Anemones are among the trendiest flowers for weddings this year – and if you have chosen to include them in a black and white bouquet, you should definitely incorporate grayish-blueish berries in this arrangement too. The berries will complement the entire vibe of the bouquet, making it look lovelier from every point of view.
  • Dusty rose bouquet. Of all the wonderful pink shades of the world, dusty rose is one of the most popular choices this year – and a bouquet consisted from flowers in this shade is bound to attract all the appreciation of your guests. Romantic, sweet, and just a bit nostalgic, this type of bouquet is just perfect for a bride who loves timelessness and soft elegance – and it works marvelously well with snowberries in it. This combination will look so amazing that you will definitely want to preserve your bouquet!

Planning a bachelorette party is about more than just a girl’s night out. Of course, it’s all about partying and having fun – but since this is part of a pretty “official” series of pre-wedding events, some etiquette has to be considered as well.

What are some of the essential bachelorette party etiquette rules to keep in mind when planning this kind of event, though?

We have some tips for you – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • The bachelorette party typically takes place about two months before the wedding date. However, there are many cases when the bachelorette party is held weeks before the wedding day. In the end, it is up to you – but one thing is for certain: it shouldn’t be too close to the wedding day because it might make the bride feel overwhelmed with the large number of pre-wedding commitments. Likewise, it shouldn’t be too far from the big date, because you need to make sure the excitement of this party will keep everyone on their toes until the actual wedding.
  • Generally, the bachelorette party is planned by the Maid of Honor – but there’s no set rule about this. In fact, anyone in the wedding party or bridal entourage can do it – and even more people can do it.
  • Do ask the future guests how much they can spend on this party. The general rule is that everyone pays for their way into the bachelorette party (and the host will pay for the bride). However, you don’t want people to feel too financially strained – so ask them before planning an entire weekend long trip out of town with the bride.
  • Who should be on the guest list? Well, when it comes to this, it’s better to talk to the guest of honor – the bride, that is. Most of the times, the bridesmaids, the very good friends, sisters, and other close people in the bride’s entourage are included. Also, the bride might want to invite a future sister-in-law as well (but this is something you should actually ask about).
