4 Special Flower Ideas for Your Wedding

Leave a Comment

Flowers are a true gift for the world! Graceful and beautiful, they are the perfect embellishment for anything wedding-related and are a true delight in both natural and man-made environments. We are so connected to the beauty of flowers that we want them to accompany us on the most special days of our lives. Since your wedding is one of those days, you’re probably wondering how to incorporate the elegance of flowers into your Big Day. We have gathered here some tips and ideas for you.

  • Edible Blooms

Edible flowers have been quite popular and they will continue to remain so. You can have them on your wedding cake (even the simplest buttercream cake can be instantly elevated with fresh flowers), on your desserts, in your foods, and even in your cocktails. These flowers will not only make your food and drinks look fresh and pretty, but they will also complement their flavor bouquet.

  • Video-Mapping Flowers

You don’t have to use natural flowers to incorporate their beauty in your wedding day. For instance, you could use video-mapping services to project stunning floral decorations on a white cake and even on your white wedding gown (imagine how beautiful this would look while you dance for the first time as a married couple!).

  • Floral Fashion

Flowers can look beautiful when printed on your bridesmaids’ dresses (ideal for a spring wedding, for example). They can also add a dash of style and uniqueness to your groom’s attire when they are printed on his suit, shirt, or simply his bow-tie. And they can look absolutely magical when incorporated into your wedding veil too!

  • Hanging Florals

Hanging florals and overhead flower arrangements are quite the trend right now – and we can see why. They are surprising and delicate at the same time, they can create an amazing, airy space, and they can even make the wedding reception feel cozier and more welcoming by narrowing the space between the ceiling and the floor. This kind of décor is bound to be appreciated by everyone at your wedding!

5 Ways to Have A Wedding with An Art Theme

Leave a Comment

One thing that many couples do is add personalized details to their wedding to celebrate their uniqueness. They usually use things like their favorite foods, things that remind them of their hometown, and even monograms.

In recent years, we’ve noticed a rising inclusion of artistic elements in weddings happening in Northern Virginia. From subtle paintbrush stroke details gracing invitations and paper goods to couples who emblazon their table cards with calligraphy and watercolor designs.

Some weddings even have an actual artist is on-site to capture the true emotion of the day on canvas. Whichever one is chosen, utilizing artsy details is an especially striking way to add a special flair to wedding décor. So, how then does one have an artistic wedding?

  • Intentionally

Artistic weddings are different from other kinds of weddings. Everything must be carefully thought out. Your planning must be meticulous and everything has to be beautifully and creatively assembled. Your location also has to be stylish with impressive architecture just like we have at Hunt Country Celebrations. When it comes to your wedding, just picture a well thought out piece of art.

  • Simple and Organic

Your décor for your artistic wedding has to be sophisticated but simple. Rather than outrageous/flashy designs and colors, go for more natural pastel colors and components. Involve lots of plants, foliage and natural surfaces like stone, brick, and marble.

  • Romantic

Artistic weddings are romantic weddings. The feel of your artistic wedding should be romantic so go for soft colors, music, lighting and natural colors. Also, go for feminine flowers and flowing fashion.

  • Fashion

When it comes to artistic weddings, we’ve already mentioned flowing fashion. Artistic, high fashion should be the theme of the day.

  • Photography

The pictures and videos from your wedding should be soft, elegant and dreamy. We’re thinking gorgeous pictures that look like they’re from a storybook as opposed to super contrasted and over vibrant modern photos.

How to Solve Pre-Wedding Jitters

Leave a Comment

Getting rid of pre-wedding jitters is next to impossible, but that doesn’t mean you can’t deal with them. It’s perfectly normal to feel nervous before your big day and there are things that you can do to take care of it, but we’ll show you to stave off all the anxiety! The comprehensive list below is all you need/

  • Breathe

Yes, breathe. As cliché as this sounds, it actually goes a long way towards helping. Take deep evenly spaced breaths and practice relaxing your mind. It’ll be okay and you’ll be fine.

  • Picture the Worst Scenario

Most times, pre-wedding jitters happen because you are trying to stop yourself from thinking about things that could go wrong and failing at it. Try a more direct route by picturing what exactly it is that you feel could go wrong. Doing this can help prove that your fears are unfounded and things are not so doomed after all.

  • Face Reality

Tell yourself the truth. You are not a magician and things will not suddenly begin to go wrong just because you are worried and think that they will. You’ve taken steps to ensure that your day goes beautifully so relax and be rest assured that it will.

  • Speak About It

Talk to your spouse-to-be, parent or friend. Let them know how you feel and listen to their reassurances. Talking about what bothers you is a good way to chase the jitters away.

  • Talk to Yourself

And yes, we mean out loud. Give yourself a short talk in front of the mirror. You are awesome and have come this far. Positive words of affirmation spoken to yourself go a long way in helping you feel better.

  • Distract Yourself

Watch funny videos, play a challenging game or catch a nice movie. Losing yourself in something other than plans for your wedding ceremony, can help in taking away the uncomfortable feeling.

  • Listen to Music

Pick songs that you like or choose to explore and make a new playlist. This works because it also takes your mind off the upcoming event and makes you focus on something else for a change.

While taking all of the steps listed above, we’d just like to remind you that pre-wedding jitters are completely normal and you will be absolutely fine.

You do not want guests bumping into each other as they try to navigate to their seats. Those who do not get along should be seated as far away from each other as possible.

  • A Long Ceremony

You do not want your guests to become bored and restless, so try to keep your ceremony short. The same goes for toasts and speeches. Give a time frame for them and make sure whoever is carrying out MC duties makes them keep to time.

  • Wedding Catering Disasters

This is a total no-no. Make use of your RSVP cards to get your guest’s dietary requirements and notify your caterer well ahead of time. Also, work with them to ensure that you have enough food for everyone. There is nothing as embarrassing as running out of food at your wedding.

  • Lack of Directions

Even when your location is famous and well known, it is still advisable to give your event directions. A mini-map or piece of paper containing directions goes one step further in ensuring a smooth, happy wedding.

  • An Inconvenient Location

A convenient location for your guests to get to without much confusion is a great way to keep your guests happy. You do not want them to have to stop at too many places to ask for directions or look through a confusing map and get stranded in the middle of nowhere.
