Spring is a fabulous time of year for weddings. Many couples choose to have a wedding in the springtime because it is such a wonderful time of year when the plants start to flourish after a dormant winter. With the combination of a variety of flowers in bloom and the temperate weather, many couples feel as though spring is the ideal time for a wedding. These couples are also likely to want to give there guests wedding favours which are closely associated to the spring season. This article will offer a few ideas for wedding favours which would be appropriate for weddings in the springtime.

Flowers are one of the most obvious choices for wedding favours for a spring wedding. Spring is one of the best times of year for fresh flowers. There are a wide variety of bright and fragrant flowers which are available in the spring. Couples who get married at this time of year may have trouble choosing flowers for centrepieces and bouquets because there are so many options available to them. Because flowers are so plentiful this time of year, giving flowers as wedding favours is also a very common practice at spring weddings. The couple may choose to give fresh flowers because they are so bright and fragrant or artificial flowers because they will serve as a lasting memento of the wedding for the guests. With either option the couple may choose to give either a single flower or a bouquet of flowers tied with a ribbon matching the other colours used at the wedding.

Knick knacks such as ceramic umbrellas or ceramic rain boots can also be very cute wedding favours for a springtime wedding. These favours can also often be personalized to include the name of the bride and the groom as well as the wedding date. By personalizing the favour the couple makes the gift more appropriate for the wedding but by keeping the favour related to the season the couple makes the favour a really fun gift for the guests.

Real umbrellas can also be used as favours for a springtime wedding. In many locations, spring is typically a rainy time of year. A favour of umbrellas is a really practical idea because the guests are likely to be able to use the favour for years to come. One way to personalize this type of favour is to include a small tag on the handle with the name of the bride and the groom as well as the wedding date. The umbrellas can also be made more appropriate for the season by seeking out umbrellas in bright pastel colours.

A final idea for springtime wedding favours is simply candy. There are candies available in a variety of vibrant colours. While chocolate bars with personalize wrappers may be popular wedding favours year round, couples having a spring wedding may wish to select more colourful candies such as jelly beans or hard candies which come in a variety of colours. These candies can be distributed in see through containers such as votive candle holders or clear bags so the colours will be prominently displayed at the place settings. This type of wedding favour is not only a great deal of fun but it also relates very well to the season of the wedding and it is a favour which is likely to be greatly appreciated by the guests. While it is not a favour which will serve as a lasting memento of the wedding, it is a favour your guests will enjoy while they are eating the favour.

Hashtags For Your Wedding

1-05

Social media has taken over pretty much every aspect of our daily lives . That being said it may be something that you want to include in your wedding. The idea of a hashtag is something that more and more couples are using . It is an excellent way to to keep all the photos and other posts in an easy to find format .

When creating your hashtag you definitely want to choose something that is unique but not too unique. You might be the only Jack and Jill that you know but understand that the world wide web is world wide and forever. Instead of #jackjill you might want to add the married last name or even the date or year. #jackjilljonesjune2015 is something that is specific without being too obscure.

We see continually see long hashtags in use but in this case it might be something to avoid. Imagine your friends posting a picture they just took and taking five minutes to type in your hashtag. Chances are they will give up after the first two posts.

Make sure that the hashtag you choose actually works . Keep it to simple letters and number combinations. Adding spaces, punctuation or symbols are a no-no for hashtags.

Even if you believe that you have a unique hashtag that no one else will ever think of there is a good chance someone all ready has. Try your hashtag out on social media prior to sharing it. That way you can alter it if is already too popular.

Once you have the hashtag that works then spread the word. Add it to your invites, programs, signage,website and anything else that you would use as a communication tool. Then you are ready to go !

Paying For Your Wedding

medium_546833127

Many couples are opting to pay for their weddings themselves. Some couples decide to pay for their own weddings because they have not other choice, some do so as a matter of choice. The best reason to pay for your own wedding is because you do not want to compromise on how, when and where you get married and you are ready to pay for it all on your own.

The average cost of a wedding in the North America is over $25,000, so financing your wedding requires a serious financial commitment. The sooner you start planning and saving for your wedding, the more time you have to come up with the necessary funds. The average time between the engagement and the wedding day is 12 to 18 months. Such time frame gives you an opportunity to plan and save for your wedding. The most important task you have is to determine the total amount you wish to spend on your wedding. Then, divide the amount by the number of months to determine how much money you need to put aside each month to meet your goal. If you estimate that your wedding will cost $25,000, and you have two years until your wedding, you need to save about $1042.00 per month. Realistically, not everyone can put aside a thousand dollars each month. If you are unable to save enough to cover all the costs, you may need to start cutting costs until you come up with a figure that you can meet. Aside from cost cutting, you can do a lot by saving one everything you do. You can save by taking your lunch instead of going out, spend less on clothes and entertainment. You could also, take on a part time job to help you with your budget. You have many options.

Opening a separate savings account for your wedding may help enforce the need to save. Even if you start with a modest amount a special wedding savings account should help you make the right spending and saving decisions.

You can find ways to save money by learning as much as you can about the products and services you need for your big day. The more educated you become about prices, the more you can bargain with vendors to make sure you get the best possible deals in town.

Why Hire A Wedding Planner ?

bannerweddingpage edit

Are you trying to decide whether to hire a professional wedding planner or do it yourself? Take a look at this rudimentary collection of chores and details to be attended to in order to pull off a successful wedding. You’ll probably want to run, not walk, to find the nearest professional wedding planner or consultant.

There’s the church wedding, and all it entails, from providing your baptism certificate to choosing between confetti and biodegradable rice. Then there are such items as who sits where, ushers, bridesmaids, best men, flower girls, music, wardrobe, hairstyles, flowers, and rings. Not to mention the vows. And all the rehearsals.

There’s the reception. Finding the right venue and the right caterers can be a really stressful task. Then you have to plan the menu, the bar and the service, all the while hoping against hope that everything comes out okay. Not to mention the wedding cake!

There’s the photographer. And do you want stills and videos too? What kind of transportation will you use? What about the invitations; how to know what to put on them, who to invite? What about all theother vendors?

Are you getting the picture yet? The above list shows only the tip of the iceberg. The myriad chores involved in completing just one of those tasks is enough to make one elope to Las Vegas or Mexico!

In fact, the only reason you might hold back on hiring a wedding planner is your budget, but that reasoning is not well thought out. A professional wedding planner not only has the know-how and the contacts to get you the best deals around, but also will hold you to your original budget with an iron will and the experience to back it up. Without someone like this on your side, things can get out of hand pretty fast.

Make your dream wedding a memory to cherish forever, not a nightmare full of stressful problems to solve. A wedding planner will stick with you through thick and thin and be a shield and a comfort, so you can relax and enjoy the best day of your life!

Destination Weddings

Destination Wedding edit

A destination wedding is a wedding that takes place in a location that is not home to the couple or their families. Couples may choose a location that they have always wanted to visit for the location of their destination wedding. The couple may also opt to have their wedding in the location of their honeymoon so that there honeymoon will start immediately after the wedding. There are certain advantages and disadvantages to having a destination wedding. One of the most defining advantages is the ability to have a wedding in a beautiful and exotic location. Another advantage to a destination wedding is that if you choose to honeymoon in the same location you will first of all already be at your honeymoon location at the conclusion of the wedding and furthermore you will likely receive a discount on your honeymoon stay because you have already had your wedding at the location. One of the distinct disadvantages of a destination wedding is that the planning process can be difficult and that you are often unable to fully enjoy the planning process. Another disadvantage to destination weddings is that they are typically not well attended due to the fact that travel is expensive. A destination wedding can be used as the opportunity to enjoy a trip with close friends in a convenient location. The following are a few tips for turning your destination wedding into a fun-filed extended weekend for your guests.

Choosing a scenic location for your destination wedding can offer your guests a variety of fun activities to participate in either before or after your wedding. The couple could choose to have their wedding on a resort, ranch or at a ski resort and there are a wide variety of activities available for the couple to participate in. Some of these activities include tours, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing and hiking.

A destination wedding is basically a wedding and vacation combination. The key to hosting a great destination wedding is to choose a location that provides your guests with a beautiful background as well as a wealth of activities to keep them entertained for at least a few days. Although a destination wedding may sound perfect, it is important to realize that there are a few downsides to hosting a destination wedding. One problem is that many guests will decline your invitation because they are either unable or unwilling to travel for the wedding. This can also work to your advantage by limiting the number of guests as well. While you may be disappointed if close friends decline your wedding invitation, you are likely to be relieved that you do not have to pay for distant relatives or casual acquaintances at your wedding. The advantage, however, to a destination wedding is that the couple does not have to travel for their honeymoon and that the guests have the luxury of spending a few day in an exotic location.

Why Can’t YOU Create A Family Tradition On Your Wedding Day

susanandjason1

Quality is the first thing that you need to look for in an item that could potentially be an heirloom. Without quality construction, no item will last long enough to be in the family for generations to come.

Timelessness is another aspect to consider. When choosing items that you’d like to pass down to your children and grand children try to avoid fads and trends. Chances are, it will be a few generations before they will come back into style again.

A very easy way to start a tradition that will stay in the family is with jewelry. Do you know a woman who doesn’t own a piece of jewelry with a story behind it? A good story is the start of a lasting heirloom. It’s a perfect place to begin.

Just imagine yourself in 10 years, sitting on your couch with your children while you’re flipping through the photo album from your wedding day. And in all of the photos, you are wearing a Swarovski Three Point Necklace , a stunning pair of cufflinks or even a tie pin that sparkles beautifully, and is the finishing touch that really makes your day prince or princess for the day .

Now imagine yourself in 30 years, standing with your child on his or her special day. Both of you are absolutely overwhelmed with anticipation for the events to come and cherishing every moment. You have tied each bow and buttoned each tiny button they are almost ready to go down the aisle when you present your gift that you wore on your big day ,NOW everything is ready !

You can make these moments happen starting today and lasting for a lifetime, not only for you but the people that you love the most!

Uplighting can turn an average room into a breathtaking event venue.
A few ways to utilize uplighting include lighting the exterior walls,lighting behind the head table or even lighting any poles or stands in the room.

The basic idea is to add accents and ambiance by strategically placing the lights throughout the given space. The lights are made up of red, blue and green LED’s ( light emitting diodes) that when combined can create almost any colour. The impact of uplights provided a stark contrast to a room without them.
