Poster size invitations
Yes, I agree, the wedding invitations should stand out. It is the formal way in which you invite to your wedding guests and therefore the wedding reception facilities should represent you. How about some poster sized invitations? You know how posters announcing performances and film premieres are. Well, it is something like those only that the message is yours.
Original themed weddings
Vaudeville Carnival, Moroccan Nights, Rustic French, Vintage Cabaret, Belle Epoque, Hollywood Glam, where imagination takes you? Now, the couples can afford to be creative.
When you organize a wedding with a small budget, you try to skimp every penny. How can you plan your wedding budget so you do not feel very many expenses? Here are some low price wedding ideas.
Step by step
Establish a schedule on months. Pay something every month: the advance at the restaurant (it should be first), next month the advance for photographer and music, after another month so buy the wedding rings. In this way, you take things at a time and have time to document, to make the best choice but also to maintain a balance of expenditure.
You can set the payment schedule according to priorities. Thus, reservations are most important to not lose a very good location or professionals who are very busy. Start to visit locations and restaurants early after you set the wedding date. Be interested in the wedding menu options they offer. Menu is the most expensive aspect of your wedding budget. Next on the list are music, photography. If you call in professionals, establish this as earlier. Even if you do not have the money for advance, it is good to even talk. Negotiate to pay the advance next month or in installments. If you change your mind, announce earlier. It is very bad when you establish something and then not keep the promise.
Have you thought planning when you should buy the outfits? Well, if you have a small wedding budget, you know you have to hunt any discount. Save your wedding budget by taking advantage of discounts when you buy your wedding dress and groom’s suit. Usually, discounts are found in the end of seasons – winter and summer. Plan to buy wedding dress in January or August. Do not forget the accessories. Other low price wedding ideas are wedding fairs where some items may have significant reductions of up to 30% and sometimes more. Every penny counts.
Combine business with pleasure
How about if instead of Christmas gift, you buy him a pair of silk stockings for the wedding or if Santa Claus would bring as a gift a pair of silver buttons? Include the gift budget for wedding. It is the best way to get those small quality little things that you want. How would you react if on your birthday you receive a set of silver jewelry or pearls?
If you plan a romantic wedding with candles or if red is your theme, do not avoid specialized shops after … Valentine's Day. Even if trade prices are not low, they are still a good source of inspiration.
White wedding dress is not currently a must. International designer collections keep a few models of all white wedding dresses, but the trends are moving towards models with a little more color and personality. I am not saying in any case that white wedding dress is completely outdated. This is a matter of taste of every bride which can not be disputed. However, it is good to know that increasingly popular are wedding reception dresses colored in bold shades or accentuated with one splash of color. And this is explained by the need to bring a touch of modernity to traditions, to get out of the predefined patterns and to print a new direction for wedding dresses.
If you are a brave passionate bride, you can try even a red dress. A bright passionate red in combination with white creates a great contrast. Also, the visual effect is stunning. Silk combined with red satin, discreet embroidery with Swarovski stones and some draperies carefully made at the bottom are magnificent.
Because prints are trendy, you can opt for a printed wedding dress. Do not believe that I suggest a dress so extravagant that only in dreams you can imagine wearing it. A gorgeous model with a subtle floral print in shades of purple and lime made of organza are spectacular, but delicate. If your wedding is in spring in a natural setting (on the beach or somewhere in the mountains), this is the perfect choice.
If you are a romantic with a strong propensity toward pink, well you have a choice. You can opt for fuchsia pink and a wide draped organza dress or you can head to a pale pink dress with a corset. These pink wedding reception dresses suit well especially for a pale skin and they give a touch of elegance.
Wedding dresses in various shades of cream are undoubtedly the most popular today. In part this is because the beige or cream are very close to classic white shades and they are a “compromise” or a variant at hand for brides who do not want a pure white dress. Beige gold, sable cream, rose beige, cappuccino … all these shades look very good and sweeten your features.
Finally, if you do not dare to wear a red, pink or ivory beige dress and prints do not delight you, there is a handy option: the white dress with colored accents. Perhaps it is a colored satin ribbon tied in the waist, a bow in the back, a corset in two contrasting colors (white with blue, red or green or) inserts of colored material on the train.
The central part of the official marriage ceremony, flowers should reflect through their shape and color palette the personality of the bride, so that in the following lines we will offer some recommendations for wedding reception flower arrangements close to perfection.
Do your homework!
Interview the floral designer to ensure that they share the same vision in terms of bouquets and decorations. The most important is to resonate with the designer and feel that you are listened. If that connection is established between you and the person dealing with your floral arrangements dealing at the great event, you can turn your vision into reality.
The advantage of proximity
When choosing plants for the composition of floral arrangements, be aware of the destination and date associated with the wedding reception. It is not only important to sustain the local products free of pesticides, but it is great to have control over the quality of plants.
Think outside the vase …
The separation from classical wedding reception flower arrangements is one of the most recurrent ways to print a dose of unconventional. Consider using polls, influenced by the fascinating world of Morocco, together with the inclusion of wooden boxes, cups of tea and vintage vases.
… and out of flowers!
For spectacular floral arrangements, use customized plants by adding feathers, buttons and buttonholes decorations, candy, shells and even vegetables and fruits for a guaranteed result. The main idea is to be original.
Customize the floral decors!
Select flowers for wedding reception for one reason. Do you have memories about the yellow roses related to your love story? Your grandmother had a garden full of hydrangeas? Your mother’s favorite perfume included roses? Keep in mind that plants should be chosen for a reason, separated from color.
Get rid of matching obsession!
Sure, I do not try to convince you that you have to put flowers of all colors, with no unitary concept. But surely things will look better if you do not try to match it to your wedding accessories. Flowers do not have to be in salon’s color where the wedding happens. They must not be in the color of tablecloths or chair covers or floor. Flowers are alive and have personality; they should not be designed as an accessory but the main actors in your party.
Request a sample
Even if you think you have got wonderful with people who will deliver your wedding flowers, do not be too confident. It is not wise to rely only on the picture that you discussed together. Ask for a sample before the event and according to it, make the necessary adjustments.
