Turn Your Rainy Wedding Day Into a Success

Leave a Comment

Rain is an absolute nightmare for brides and grooms to be – nothing else can generate more anxiety and more stress than the thought of a rainy wedding day.

However, although things may seem pretty dark, rain is really not that bad if you prepare well. How to turn your rainy wedding day into a success? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Get ready. If you want to have an outdoor wedding, be ready to face the eventuality of rain as well – and do this regardless of what season it may be. A wedding tent is an inexpensive, easy way out of the rain, but if you can negotiate this with your venue, an extra-indoor space would be fantastic as well.
  • Offer comfort. Don’t let your guests’ appetite for party be dampened by the possibility of rain – offer them amazing food and cups of hot chocolate to boost up the morale and create a sense of comfort and warmth.
  • Don’t be sad. It rains – it’s not the end of the world in any way. In fact, you can totally turn this to your advantage if you put a smile on your face, a pair of fun-colored rubber boots in your feet and take a clear umbrella over your head. Have fun with your rainy wedding day – it makes it more unique and unforgettable.
  • Take amazing pictures. A talented photographer will really turn the rain into stunning photos – so don’t be afraid to go outside for the shooting. You will not be disappointed!

Make Your Out of Town Guests Feel Truly Welcome!

Leave a Comment

Inviting out of town guests at your wedding is not something you can actually avoid – especially if you don’t plan on having your wedding in your (or your future spouse’s) hometown. Keep in mind, though: out of town guests will most probably need a special kind of treatment and you should do everything in your power to make their trip feel truly memorable.

How to do that? Here are some tips to make your out of town guests feel truly welcome:

  • Make sure they have accommodation options. You could book an entire hotel for your guests if you have that many people coming from out of town. Or, if this works better for your situation, you could just provide out of town guests with a list of options they can check out when searching for accommodation (it will still make everything easier for them!).
  • Guide them through the town. Send your out of town guests a “survival kit” for your wedding location. It should include a map of the place, GPS coordinates for the most important locations, taxi phone numbers, pictures with the landmarks, as well as actual written instructions on how to get to/from the essential spots (hotel, wedding venue, etc.). Don’t forget to include an extra-list with touristic attractions too!
  • Offer welcome baskets. You don’t have to spend a fortune on these: homemade products, local goodies, a bottle of nice wine, personalized cosmetic and care products – these are just some of the elements you could include in your welcome baskets.

Money Mistakes to Avoid When Planning the Big Day

Leave a Comment

It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that weddings cost a lot of money – but, after all, you only get married once and it should be absolutely amazing, right?

What are the money mistakes you should definitely avoid when planning the Big Day? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.

  • Not making a clear budget to begin with. Sure, there are a lot of temptations that might appear along the way – but resisting them means you are starting your marriage on the right foot from a financial point of view. Sit down with your loved one, see how much you can afford paying for all of the wedding elements, and do everything in your power to actually stick to the plan too.
  • Forgetting to budget for certain elements. With so many details to handle, it is perfectly understandable why certain things might slip from the initial budget plan. Pre-wedding events, the presents you buy for your bridesmaids, and many other items seem insignificant in terms of costs – but they can quickly add up and push you over your budget.
  • Accepting parents to help you financially and not setting things straight. Your parents obviously want you to be happy – but if you decide to accept their financial help, be sure you set all the rules from the very beginning (e.g. if you want a small wedding and they start pushing for more guests, you should be honest with them and talk about this).

What Grooms Need to Know About Wedding Planning

Leave a Comment

Just because brides are traditionally more involved in wedding planning, it doesn’t mean grooms aren’t equally invested in the Big Day. After all, this is a huge event for the groom as well – and he definitely wants to make sure it turns out perfect.

What is the groom’s role when planning the wedding, though? Read on and see what grooms need to know about wedding planning.

  • Communicate with your bride about the guest list. If you really must have certain people invited, make sure you stand your ground and tell her it’s important to you. She will be more than understanding of this.
  • Pick your groomsmen with care. We know you don’t like to rank the people in your life, but if there’s only one time when you should actually do this, it’s when you’re planning the Big Day. Your groomsmen will be there for you, they will help you manage the wedding, and they will appear in the most treasured pictures of your life – so choose wisely.
  • Beware of the selfies. Sure, one or two selfies with the guys can be fun. Other than that, though, leave the photography into the hands of the professional – after all, you’re paying them to capture your wedding, and your selfies shouldn’t stand in the way.
  • Empty your pockets – literally. You might be tempted to carry a thousand-and-one things with you in your pockets – but it might not be such a great idea for your wedding day. Imagine the distracting sound of your dangling car keys as you have your first dance!
