Furry friends make the event much more memorable!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

For many couples, having their pet around in this special day is a must. Think, if you’re inviting your second cousin who you’ve seen twice in your life, then there’s no reason your best friend shouldn’t be part of your big day, and in a big way too.

If you and your future husband or wife already have a dog, you probably consider your pet a part of the family, and there are lots of ways to involve dogs in your celebration, whether in a formal role – as ring bearer or flower dogs – or simply as the most honored guest.

Now, first things first. There are many different factors to consider before you decide if your dog should be present at the festivities. You want to make sure your fur baby is taken care of throughout the entire celebration, so be careful to choose a sitter, maybe a close friend, that be aware of him or her at all times. Then you won’t have to worry about your pup’s well-being.

Also, is very important to consider your pet’s personality. Maybe you’ve got a sweet old dog, who’s happy to be around humans. GREAT! she or he should do just fine. But if you’ve got a puppy, who has an abundance of energy and will chew on anything in sight, maybe is not such a good idea. So, think realistically, about what bringing your dog to a wedding (surrounded by lots of people) looks like. Then decide.

If you want your dog to be at this special occasion, strategic planning is essential, but it will be worth it having your best friend with you, on one of the biggest days of your life. Also you can be sure he or she will look incredibly cute on the pictures!

Is a must to have a wedding cake?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Wedding cakes are a time-honored tradition that many couples choose to include on their big day. But just as some people don’t look their best in true white or would rather choose different décor elements than fresh blooms, not everyone loves cake! If that’s your case, can you opt to skip the wedding cake altogether? As experts, we can give you some tips that could help you take that decision.
If you don’t want to serve cake at your wedding, but you like to enjoy some sweets during the celebration, you can go for another alternative. Maybe instead of serving cake, look for another dessert that you love. You could offer an ice cream sundae bar, a spread of cookies and brownies, or your favorite flavors of pies. Another idea can include fresh fruits and squares of chocolate to pair with the different flavors. A coffee or hot cocoa bar is also a nice treat for the night.
Remember, it’s your celebration! so there’s no reason to designate a part of your budget toward something you don’t see as a crucial part of your wedding day. The great thing is, skipping the wedding cake doesn’t mean your party has to be a dessert-free zone, nor does it mean you need to also skip traditions like the cake cutting or the first bite shared as husband and wife. You can do all traditions with your special touch. So, forget about what you should do for your big day and start thinking on what you and your future husband would like for that unique

The bouquet, your companion down the aisle

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Every woman loves flowers, not only to receive them as a gift, to decorate her home or to wear, but even more so, as a bouquet to carry and complement her wedding gown on one of the most memorable days of her life. The bridal bouquet is an essential part of a modern bride’s outfit, in every wedding scenario. It is true that flowers add visual beauty and a touch of romance to a wedding, but there are deeper reasons for their presence.

A bride carrying flowers has its roots in ancient times. In Ancient Rome, brides carried garlands, believing that it signifies new beginnings, fidelity and hope of fertility. In the Middle Ages, strong-smelling herbs and spices were thought to ward off and drive away evil spirits, bad luck, ill health and help mask the smell of body odor.

The modern version of the bridal bouquet was popularized by Queen Victoria who, when marrying Prince Albert, carried a tiny round clutch of flowers in a filigree holder filled with moss and orange blossom. In Victorian times, lovers often sent different flowers as a way of expressing their love. Each flower had a different meaning, and their exchange soon became very popular. Flowers were a part of wedding ceremonies because of this romantic association. Brides carefully chose flowers for the sentiments they represented.

However, in modern times, charming as they may have seemed, the old traditions have been almost forgotten, with brides now selecting flowers for the beauty of their colors, fragrance and shape. The bouquet is the bride’s ultimate accessory and greatly adds to the overall appearance of the day. The bride’s selected blooms are a way to express her personal style, taste and personality, it’s also an essential complement to her gown.

Invitation protocol = ancient history

Over the years there have been many protocols about the invitations and this had raised a lot of doubts like: Were to send it? To whom? Should I put number of guests? Among others. But the truth is, many things have changed over the years and protocol is not so strict anymore.

Nowadays people use more low cost and practical ways, to make their invitations. An example, is the electronic invitations, that are a more simple and faster way to invite your guests, also you avoid another extra responsibility ( going to the mail or deliver them in person to each guest) in the stressful job of planning an event.

Another fact that is old fashioned, is the handwritten invitation. Even though it looks beautiful, very elegant and many people like to do it this way. It isn’t a “must” anymore, now you can use another type of resources and it can also look stunning.

Also, we can discuss the theme of colors. Like we said before, the new generation like to use all digital, including invitations and amazing videos, not at all conventional but extremely original! Now, everyone has different tastes and many people like to see printed invitations, but also in this subject, many things have change. Formerly people used light colors in their invitations, even must of the cards (specially weeding invitations) were white. This idea change completely and nowadays colors took over!

With all this information, you can be sure that they’re not bad decisions, in matter of invitations for your next event. Just follow your instincts and make a design based on your tastes. Also, you have to realize that is very important to consider your guests, many people aren’t so immersed in the digital area, so maybe you have to think about the idea of doing two kind of invitations (digital and printed) and that way you’ll be sure every guest will be satisfy.

Remember always to design your invitations based on the party theme, for more tips you can get in touch with us. We’ll be happy to help you every step of the way!

Isn’t that a lovely picture?

Well, we are here to guide you and give you our advice, and it is: “go for it!” No matter the theme or style of your wedding, there’s always a candlelight option that will have you glowing with excitement. For example, you can arrange tall chandeliers for the tables of the reception, maybe a big flower center piece with little candles around in the same color tone of the decoration. There are countless ways to use this spectacular and simple resource, but no matter how you decide to use it, candles will bring to your atmosphere the elegance, romance and warmness you are looking for in this big day.

Also, don’t forget that candles are not only for romance and weddings, you can use them in other kind of celebrations. Maybe an elegant dinner party, a baptism, first communion. Even when you are celebrating a birthday, the candles must be present on top of the cake!

Now a days there are a lot of new trends to decorate your wedding reception, that maybe years before people didn’t think about using. An example of this, is the welcome sign, a special way to tell your guest “welcome to the most important day of our lives!”

The welcome sign, is the first wedding detail that your guest will see, so it have to be absolutely spectacular and it should offer a little taste of what to expect next.

You can be creative and design a beautiful sing, that goes with the theme of the party. Maybe if you have a classic decoration you will prefer a monogrammed chalkboard easels look. But if you’re throwing of a seaside bash, probably a calligraphed pieces of driftwood will be the perfect touch. You can also adorn a sign with colorful blooming florals, for a festive summer wedding or hang eucalyptus garlands, for a bohemian affair. Also sleek graphics and cool typography for a modern twist, could be you ideal welcome sign.

This new idea also provides an important service for your guests. Many couples use them as a master itinerary, maybe a map to direct guests to the their seats or to explain where can they find everything inside. Is a very creative idea and you can be sure that your guest will love it.

Remember to put a personal wedding hashtag on the sign, so your guests can be sure to use it, while sharing all of those candid moments.
