TBT: Summertime Wedding Tips!

Summer is officially here and there are weddings happening almost every weekend.  With the beautiful weather that the season brings, many of these weddings are held outdoors.  With that being said, it is only right for our TBT post to be all about tips on how to enjoy a summertime wedding by keeping cool and avoiding those pesky mosquito bites.

 

Now that summer’s upon us, it’s time for a few friendly reminders – the following tips will help make your wedding the hottest of the year (in a good way)!

The Joy of the Great Outdoors

As the saying goes, if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain. Or do you? To make sure you’re not caught by surprise on the day of your wedding, always have a backup plan in place – make preparations for a tent, because you never know if you might need it. This way, should rain make an appearance on the big day, it is not an unexpected guest.

Unfortunately, sometimes the great outdoors brings another unwelcome guest: mosquitoes! To ward off these pests, you can place lanterns treated with insect repellent at each table:

Drinks

Make sure to have plenty of cold refreshments available to your guests to keep them happy and hydrated:

Staying in the Shade

Give your guests relief from the hot summer sun by providing them with mini bottles of broad-spectrum sunscreen before the wedding starts, so they have time to apply. Here are some more ideas for keeping cool:

No Wilting Allowed

Work with your florist and choose blooms that are in season – this will help prevent your beautiful bouquets and centerpieces from wilting in the summer heat. Or you can skip the flowers altogether and go for a brooch bouquet that definitely won’t wilt:

The bottom line for outdoor weddings is this: keep cool and hydrated, and enjoy your day!

Fall Themed Wedding: All About Pumpkins!

Fall is here and it happens to be my favorite time of the year.  I often associate apple picking with fall because it is such a fun and seasonal activity.  However, I must admit that I am more of a pumpkin patch kind of girl.  I love hayrides to the patch, picking out my very own pumpkin, and using it for carving , baking, or weddings!  That’s right, pumpkins not only make for great decorations, but great cocktails and food for weddings.  Here are 12 of my favorite ways to incorporate pumpkins into the big day 🙂

A Bride’s Five Lucky Charms: Something Blue

 

Day 4 of the series A Bride’s Five Lucky Charms is here! This day is all about finding that something blue to add to the wedding day.  While the bride’s something borrowed may be old and sentimental, her something blue can be new and fun.  Here are a few ways she can include something blue into her wedding day…

 

Petticoat

While colorful gowns are becoming more popular in the bridal gown industry, a bride may prefer to stick with wearing a shade of white on her wedding day. Even though she may not be quite willing to make her something blue her entire gown, she may be open to including the color in her skirt.  A new trend that many brides are following is to include a blue petticoat underneath their gowns to add a fun pop of color that can be visible or hidden in pictures. This is a subtle and creative way to include something blue for the bride.

Nails

Another fun way to include something blue into the wedding day is for the bride to incorporate the color into her manicure.  There are so many different shades of blue nail polish for a bride to choose from.  She can decide to get all of her nails painted a shade of blue or just opt for blue nail art on her ring finger for instance.  That way her something blue can be a little more subtle.

Earrings

To go along with a bride’s other accessories, wearing a pair of earrings with a touch of blue is a perfect way for her to include something blue with her jewelry.  A pair of dazzling earrings will stand out especially if the bride wears her hair in an updo.  Even if she wears her hair down with flowing curls, the earrings will make for a lovely photo by the bride swooping her hair off to the side to showcase them.

Garter

Another something blue that a bride can include underneath her gown is a blue garter set.  There are so many beautiful blue garters available that a bride can choose from to wear on her wedding day.  To go along with her garter, a blue lingerie set would be a perfect something blue that only the bride and her groom have to know about.

Shoes

A final way that a bride can incorporate something blue into her wedding day is by wearing a pair of blue shoes! A fun and bold bride may decide to wear a shoe that is completely blue, while a more discreet bride may want her something blue to be hidden in the insole of the shoe.  For the bride that is in between those two, she can opt for a shoe with a blue sole.  This is my favorite way to showcase something blue in a pair of shoes.  This allows for a pop of blue to be visible when the bride kicks her heels up or is sitting down.  Perfect for pictures!

Now that we have gone through some great ways for a bride to include something blue, all we need to cover is how to include a silver sixpence in her shoe…

A Bride’s Five Lucky Charms: Something New

Now that you have found something old, you need an item to represent something new!

Here are five great ways to add something new to your wedding day…

 

Gift Exchange

One way a bride can incorporate something new into her wedding day is by having a gift exchange with her groom.  This idea is great because it allows for the couple to share a moment together before the ceremony.  The gift can be a piece of jewelry such as a necklace for the bride and a watch for the groom or it can be a hand written letter.  If the couple is not doing a first look, they can exchange gifts with a door between them or have the maid of honor and the best man bring the gifts to each of their rooms the morning of the wedding.

Signature Cocktails

Another way something new can be part of the wedding day is by the bride and groom creating their own signature cocktails.  This idea is perfect for those couples who like to be creative because the sky’s the limit when it comes to mixology.  A couple can even hire a mixologist to help them create two different cocktails that they each will love.  Of course, the cocktail names can be chosen by the bride and groom to represent each of their personalities.

Makeup

A bride will typically hire a makeup artist for her wedding day and usually a makeup trial is done so the artist can find out what she likes and dislikes.  This is a perfect opportunity for the bride to try out something new with her makeup.  While it is probably not a good idea for her to make any drastic changes on the wedding day, it is ideal to make a small change such as a different eye or lip color.  A small makeup change will add a little extra glamour to the bride’s look.

Monogrammed Champagne Flutes

During the wedding reception, many couples will allow their guests to give speeches and each speech is typically followed by a champagne toast.  This is a perfect opportunity for the couple to use newly purchased flutes.  The flutes can be used during the couple’s wedding anniversary or even passed on to their future children.  By having the flutes monogrammed, the couple will always remember the special day that they were used.

House Key 

One last way a bride can include something old into her wedding is by attaching a house key to her bouquet.  This is a great idea for a couple who has just purchased a new home together.  By attaching the key to the bride’s bouquet, the new home that she will share with her future husband will be included as her something new for the wedding day.  Another idea is for the key to be placed on the ring pillow instead of attached to the bouquet.

I hope you enjoyed this post and will check back tomorrow for ideas about incorporating something blue into the big day!

A Bride’s Five Lucky Charms: Something Old

Hello readers,

 

As promised, this post is all about different ways a bride can incorporate something old into her wedding day.  Here are a few of my favorites…

 

Perfume

A bride can spray on her mother’s favorite scent before walking down the aisle.  I love this idea because it is not only simple, but the item can be used well beyond the wedding day.  The bride can even keep the perfume bottle and pass it on to someone like her daughter. *This happens to be my mother’s favorite scent :-)*

Rings

Another way a bride can incorporate something old into her wedding day is by tying her parents’ and grandparents’ wedding rings onto her bouquet.  This is a beautiful touch that I am sure the bride’s family would appreciate.

Hairpiece

A bride can never have too many accessories and wearing a piece of family jewelry can add the perfect touch to a bride’s attire.  However, a more creative way to incorporate family jewelry into the wedding day is by using a vintage brooch as a hairpiece.  This is a lovely item that can be passed onto other brides as well.  In addition to the hairpiece, a bride can wear other vintage pieces of jewelry such as a pair of earrings or a necklace to represent something old.

Bride Box

Vintage Cake Serving Set

If a bride already has all of her accessories, she can incorporate something old into her wedding day by cutting her cake with a vintage serving set.  She can use a set that her parents or grandparents used to cut their own cakes. If a tradition was not previously started, she can begin one by passing on the set to another bride to use on her wedding day.

Mother’s Wedding Gown

One of the most traditional ways of incorporating something old into a bride’s wedding day is by the bride wearing her mother’s gown.  While a modern bride may prefer to purchase her own gown, she can still incorporate her mother’s into her wedding by refashioning it into a reception dress.

However, an idea that I like even more is for the bride to wear an updated version of her mother’s gown. In one of my favorite TLC shows Something Borrowed, Something New, a bride is allowed to choose between a modernized version of her mother’s gown or a brand new one.  I just love it when the designer is able to update the original gown and turn it into something the bride is honored to wear.

I hope these five items inspired you!  Please feel free to leave a comment about how you incorporated or plan to incorporate something old into your wedding day.

Tomorrow’s post will be all about….you guessed it! Something New
