about turning your entire wedding color scheme (and implicitly, your
bridesmaids’ looks) into your Something Blue? Wouldn’t that look great? Blue is
the kind of color that ads liveliness and vibrancy to a wedding and the best
thing about it is that it works very well in a generous number of combinations.

couldn’t have missed this from the list – pink is, in the end, one of the
single most popular wedding colors ever.
This year, pink bridesmaids’ dresses are all about the barely there shades, the
dusty shades, and the ultra-feminine shades – which means that even bridesmaids
who are not particularly in love with pink will actually love wearing these

Every second of
your wedding day is absolutely crucial – but there are some
moments that tend to be treated with more importance than others (and that’s
mostly because they have a special symbolism to them, or they mark important
milestones in the wedding itself).
Your cake cutting
is one of those moments: much expected (because, well, cake) and definitely very powerful in terms of symbolism, you cake
cutting should be very well planned.
Why? And more
importantly, how do you plan the cake cutting into the timeline in a way that
keeps everyone happy?
We have some tips
for you – keep reading if you want to find out more about this.
Traditionally, the cake cutting
happens sometime after the first dance – which is pretty much in between the
dinner and the actual wedding party. The main reason behind this is quite easy
to understand: you don’t want to stop people from having fun on the dance floor
to serve them cake, so you will want to do that before the party actually
starts. Furthermore, it makes sense that the cake is served after dinner and
after the first dance – it feels like the perfect timing between actually
eating, infusing with some romantic moments, and then sweetening yourself up
before you dance the night away, right?
Just because this is how it is traditionally done, it doesn’t mean you
can’t work the cake cutting around your timeline. For example, many couples
these days want to start the reception with the first dance – and in this cake,
the cake should be served after the last course of the dinner.
While you do have some degree
of flexibility with your wedding cake cutting, it is still very important to
acknowledge that you should serve it as soon as possible. Why? Because a lot of
guests find this as the signal that it’s OK to leave the wedding – and for the
elderly, for people who attend the wedding with their children, as well as
people who have a flight to catch in the morning, this can make all the
difference in the world.

wedding is one of the biggest moments of your life – but that doesn’t mean
the pre-wedding events aren’t important. On the contrary! These moments build
up to the big moment, helping you create a sense of excitement and anticipation
among your guests, so that they come to your wedding in a really good mood.
Obviously, your engagement party is one of
the most important pre-wedding events – but what are some of the absolute
essentials you should remember about planning such a party?
We have some tips for you – so read on and
find out more.
It doesn’t have to be very big.
Usually, engagement parties are consisted of the closest friends and relatives
– so you really don’t have to go over the top with the list. One rule to keep
in mind, however, is that those who are invited to this party should absolutely
not miss from the list of guests for the wedding.
It can be themed. No matter
what kind of event you may be planning, adding a theme to it can be a complete
game changer. If you already have a wedding theme in mind, you can tie it into
your engagement party theme – but this is not mandatory. You can be as formal
or informal as you want with this theme (and with the party in general) – so
don’t be afraid to get creative!
Great food is key. It really,
really is. Food is a major element in every kind of event out there and your
engagement party makes no exception. Keep in mind that it is very likely that
your engagement party will be quite casual and intimate – so serving some hors
d’oeuvres can be the best choice. Make these snacks unique, though – your
guests will always love a special experience!
Party games can and should be
included. Since this is a romantic occasion, why not take the opportunity to
play some wedding-related fun games? Even basic Mad Libs with a wedding twist
can be a really fun addition to your engagement party – everyone will enjoy it!

There’s nothing more energizing and
beautiful than spring – so it’s perfectly understandable why you want to have a
wedding that’s infused with this marvelous season.
How do you bring it into your Big Day,
though? How do you plan a spring wedding
that exuberates joy and beauty, just like the season outside?
We have some tips for you – keep reading and find out more.
Get your food on seasonal
notes. There are so many amazing spring ingredients you can incorporate in your
spring menu that it would be a real pity not to do it, really! From the spring
veggies to edible flowers you can use for the cake and even for the cocktails,
you can take advantage of the season outside to make your food look better,
taste better, and simply be better in every respect.
The location can make all the
difference. Here at Bluff Mountain Inn, we truly take pride in our springs! The
stunning mountain setting comes to life to create the picture-perfect backdrop
for spring weddings: full of life, beauty, gentleness, and joy. What more could
you want from your spring wedding location?
Don’t be afraid to bring spring
indoors too. There are so many amazing ways to coordinate the indoors with the
outdoors! Flowers are one way to do it, together with greenery. But if you want
to go all the way, don’t be afraid to use a floral-patterned design for your
table linens and/or a spring-infused design for your day-of stationery. It can
make such a huge difference in terms of the vibes created at your wedding!
Don’t forget about Plan B.
Spring is a wonderful season that can fill your heart with joy – but it can
also be an unpredictable season, especially in terms of weather. DO make sure
to plan for a rainy day too. You cannot control weather, but you can control
what you do in case it rains – and an outdoor tend or an indoor alternative are
both great ideas on how you can manage this kind of unexpected situation.

If you have been assigned with the planning
of a bridal shower, you surely want to make sure it turns out amazing- both for
the bride, and for everyone else invited too.
What is the etiquette surrounding
bridal showers, though? What are some of the rules you still have to follow
today, in 2019?
We have some tips for you – keep reading
and find out more.
Who throws the party? Well,
most of the times, the maid of honor is tasked with this assignment – and she
will most likely plan the bridal shower together with the other bridesmaids and
maybe even other friends of the bride. Whatever you do though, don’t leave this
in the hands of the bride – not only does she have a lot of things to handle
for the Big Day, but it is considered rude for a bride to plan her bridal
shower (because some people might perceive it as a way for her to ask for
Who pays for the party? Well,
whoever hosts the party pays for it as well. It is not uncommon, however, that
multiple people participate in the paying of the bridal shower – e.g. all the
bridesmaids, the bride’s mother, and so on.
How large should it be? Not
very large. In fact, the bridal shower is considered to be an intimate event,
and the focus should obviously lie on the bride. Therefore, the guest list
should only include close relatives and friends. And yes, you can totally invite
men as well, especially if they are close to the bride. You might want to skip
children from the invitation list, however, if you want to make sure the bride
and her friends will actually have time to enjoy themselves without worrying
the little ones might get in trouble.
Should there be a theme and a
dress code? Well, yes, especially if you want this to be a very special bridal
shower. It doesn’t have to be something really fancy – you can just ask people
to dress in pastel colors, for example.
