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).

As the father of the bride, your dad is more than proud – it doesn’t happen every day that his baby girl is getting married and he wants you to be truly happy on this special event of your life.

Naturally, he will want to help both before and during the Big Day – but what are the tasks you can assign him?

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

  • Planning the budget. It doesn’t matter how large or small your budget may be – a plan is in order if you want everything to be handled well. Traditionally, the parents of the bride are in charge with both planning and paying for the wedding reception – and although that rule may not be followed entirely these days, your dad can still be the one handling the budget. He will love the importance of this task!
  • Planning the transportation and accommodation. If you have out of town guests or if you plan on having a destination wedding, you will want to make sure everyone is properly accommodated and transported on the Big Day. Since there will be a lot of things for you to handle anyway, why not task your father with this duty? He will definitely enjoy feeling involved in the wedding planning and he will definitely do a great job of making sure your guests are happily accommodated and safely transported to and from the wedding venue!
  • Receiving guests. Receiving lines are quite passé and a lot of couples choose to skip them these days – but even so, your father can still help entertain the guests (especially his side of the family). This is not to say that you shouldn’t stop to talk to everyone for a minute or two, but your dad can help make this less stressful and easier to handle.
  • Giving the speech. This is almost a must when it comes to weddings, but do remember to officially ask your dad to give a speech during the wedding reception. He will absolutely love preparing for it and he will definitely deliver the best wedding speech ever!
