Are you stressed out about what to wear for your engagement shoot?
Engagement shoots should be carefree and fun and showcase your style as a couple. A great place to start is by using your theme or location for the shoot as inspiration for your clothing. If you are having your shoot on a beach then bright maxi dresses will really give a summer feel. Shorts, flip-flops and a casual shirt for guys will complement this. Or, if you are really daring, wear your swimsuits!
When it comes to bouquet inspiration, a great place to start is by looking at what blooms are in season. Not only will you be able to see what is available and at their peak for the time of your wedding, but you will also save on costs. Some flowers are available throughout the year and the colors vary per season. In season blooms will also give you the chance to be inspired by the gorgeous colors in your surroundings, which you can add to your wedding color palette elsewhere.
Lilacs, Calla Lily, Sweet Pea, Cherry Blossom, Daffodils, White Narcissus, Tulip, Peony, Ranunculus, Cornflower, Hydrangea, Nigella.
The season of renewal, new life and crisp sunshine. With many flowers blooming at this time, it is a great opportunity to take advantage of flowers that are just coming into season. Pastel colors work best for spring bouquets and flower arrangements consisting of soft peach, pale pink and yellow with hints of green.
Keeping guests happy and entertained at a wedding can sometimes be tough. For the most part, the only entertainment provided is a DJ and a dance floor; and while this is great for all those that love to cut a rug, what about the guests with two left feet? Enter the wedding reception lounge! With many guests preferring to spend the evening sitting and chatting with old friends and meeting new ones, adding a lounge space to your reception makes perfect sense. Not only do lounges look cool, but your guests will love having a comfortable place to hang out instead of being stuck sitting at their table or awkwardly standing by the bar/food table with all the other non-dancers.
If you’re interested in adding a lounge to your wedding reception, but aren’t sure how, we’ve put together some great tips on how to do it right!
So you’ve decided on an outdoor tented wedding, but what kind of tent will you select? It used to be that there was only one or two tent styles to choose from, making the choice relatively easy. These days, however, there are many more options available making things a little more confusing.
To help you with your decision, we’ve rounded up 10 of the different types of tents available for your big day, from the traditional to the truly unique.
1. Pole Tent
The pole tent, as its name suggests, is supported by poles and guy-wires and has a big showy top with one or more peaks. Beautiful and elegant, it is a truly sophisticated choice. Since pole tents must be staked into the ground, however, they cannot be set up on concrete or other hard surfaces, making them less versatile than some other types of tents.
We think any excuse to go to Paris is a good one! And for Davina and Kyle, eloping was as good an excuse as any. Not only did they get to say their ‘I do’s’ in one of the most romantic cities in the world, they did it in style.
Both the bride and the groom looked absolutely stunning as they exchanged their vows in a truly intimate ceremony in front of the beautiful Palais Royale.
While their Paris elopement may have included just the two of them, that didn’t stop them from sharing their joy and celebrating and with family and friends once they returned home.
