Holiday Weekend Weddings: To Plan or Not to Plan

Planning a wedding on a holiday weekend

Planning a wedding on a holiday weekend

Three-day weekends are a true blessing, especially when you consider how little spare time we all seem to have these days. Are these holidays a good wedding date, though?

We have gathered some tips to help you weigh in the pros and cons of having a holiday weekend wedding – so read on to find out more.

·       In general, these weekends are not a very good idea for your wedding date. It may seem that three days are enough for guests to travel to your wedding and have a lot of fun – but, in reality, you have to be prepared for quite a lot of negative RSVPs.

·       There are many reasons that make people skip holiday weekend weddings. One of them is simple: they need to rest and relax, just like you do, and just like everyone else does. Millennials are a generally overworked generation and regardless of how they choose to spend their extra-free time, it is their right to say “no” to a wedding during the very few free days they get in a year.

·       Furthermore, there are many guests who may simply have other plans for the holiday weekends. Many people travel during these days, and others have to attend to family obligations – so they might not be able to attend your wedding.

·       If, however, you are completely certain you want a holiday wedding, do make sure to send your Save the Date cards at least several months before the actual Big Day. This will give guests plenty of time to plan in advance (and avoid making other plans for your special weekend).

Best Summer Wedding Inspirational Ideas

Weddings in the summer!

Weddings in the summer!

Summer weddings are still happening – and if you’re planning your own amazing summer Big Day, you surely want it to be perfect from all points of view. Of course, the aesthetics play a hugely important role in everything – but how do you create the kind of summer wedding every single guest invited will always remember?

We have some of the prettiest ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Colorful fans. Want to make sure everyone is really comfortable during the ceremony? Provide them with really gorgeous colorful paper fans right before the ceremony starts. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your color scheme for a bit – it will add a pop of color and uniqueness to the entire Big Day!

·       Florals hanging…upside down. Want to decorate your outdoor wedding tables in a really fantastic way? Create lush, summery flower arrangements and hang them right above the wedding tables, but upside down. Talk to your florist about this and you will surely find a solution that looks wonderful and complements your summer wedding vibes!

·       Summer cocktails. Go beyond classic pineapple and coconut-based cocktails at your wedding – plan something that will truly delight your guests’ senses and keep them cool throughout the Big Day. For instance, you could create a signature cocktail that incorporates a popsicle in each glass – and you could do the same for the non-alcoholic version too. People will just LOVE these cocktails and the way they ward off summer heat!

Should You Wear a White Dress?  

Wearing white

Wearing white

Chinese brides wear red on their wedding day because this is considered to be the luckiest and most joyous color in their culture – so it makes perfect sense that they associate it with such a happy, life-changing event.

·       In the Western countries, white is the color of choice for most brides – but truth be told, more and more of them are opting for off-white and even completely colored wedding gowns.

·       Should you wear white too? What is the meaning behind this culture and why would you actually want to wear it on your wedding day? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       First of all, you should definitely know that the white wedding dress tradition has not always been around. In fact, it is less than two centuries old and it was first started by Queen Victoria who wore a white wedding dress. Shockingly enough, that was considered to be a scandal back then.

·       As time passed, the white wedding gown received a very puritan connotation – and innocence (especially the innocence of the bride) was represented in the dress she wore on her Big Day.

·       Today, white wedding dresses seem to be only a matter of tradition and fashion. You can choose to wear it (for its beauty, uniqueness, and grace, or simply for the fact that you love it as it is). At the same time, you can choose to wear your gown in any other color under the sun too!

Sending thank you notes

Sending out Thank You notes may not seem like a huge thing for many, but the truth is that they are just as crucial as the invitations themselves. Your guests took the time and put in the effort to attend your wedding and be by your side as you celebrate one of the most life-changing events you will ever go through – so yes, they deserve all of your attention, time, and gratitude.

Wedding Planning Difficulty

Why Is Wedding Planning Difficult?

Why Is Wedding Planning Difficult?

As you may have heard it and read it before, wedding planning is not even by far the easiest thing to do – so much so that most people would definitely say it falls under the top 3 most stressful times in their lives.

Why is it so hard, though? What makes wedding planning a less-than-smooth path to that one day of bliss and happiness? We have some tips for you – so read on and be prepared.

·       Making parents happy. Like it or not, your parents are a big part of the Big Day – and even if they don’t necessarily contribute financially, you will still want them to be happy and proud of their baby daughter and baby boy as they tie the knot. Making them happy and sticking to your own style, plan, and guest list might be a bit more difficult than you originally thought – but the key here is to treat everything with the utmost diplomacy.

·       Creating the seating arrangement – especially when there are divorcees in your guest list. It might seem very simple to just seat people at tables – but when you want to make sure everyone will socialize and be happy with their “table neighbors”, things get a little more tangled. Be patient, visualize everything and seat people to each other when you know they do get along!

·       Money matters. This is by far one of the stingiest issues brides and grooms face when planning their wedding. With the high cost of a wedding nowadays and with the limited resources most couples have, sticking to a clear budget is key for your happiness.

Your Flower Girl

Who Can Be Your Flower Girl?

Who Can Be Your Flower Girl?

These days, it is not absolutely necessary to have a flower girl that walks down the aisle before you do. However, it can definitely be a nice addition to your Big Day – depending on who you choose for this, the micro-moment could be adorable, fun, unique and sentimental.

Are you allowed to choose just about anyone as your flower girl? Well, we have some modern etiquette tips for you – so continue reading if you want to learn more about this.

·       In short, yes, anyone can be your flower girl – and no, it doesn’t even have to be a girl (because nowadays, it is completely acceptable to have a flower boy, as well as a girl ring bearer). It’s entirely up to you!

·       In terms of the age your flower girl should have, there are no set rules either. Of course, you can choose to take the traditional path and choose a very cute, young lady to toss flower petals as she walks down the aisle.

·       At the same time though, this role can be given to someone who is important to you, but isn’t part of the bridesmaids’ crew. For instance, if you have a pre-teen or teenager cousin you really love, she could be your flower girl (or junior bridesmaid, if you wish). At the same time, your mother, your grandmother and your auntie can also be flower girls – they will look more than amazing walking down the aisle and setting the positive vibes for your own entrance.

Not sure how to plan the Big Day from A to Z? Well, that’s why we’re here. We have gathered some of the very best wedding experts in the entire area of New Mexico – so regardless of the type of vendor you are searching for, be sure to come visit New Mexico Wedding Expos & Guide!

You Will Love Your Wedding Photos If You Follow This Advice

Taking beautiful wedding photos is one of the top priorities for every bride and groom. Of course, that’s more than natural, especially since you want to make sure all the beautiful memories of this Big Day are properly preserved for the decades to come.

How to create a satisfying wedding photography program? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Schedule a pre-wedding photo shooting with the photographer of your choice. Ideally, this should be the engagement photo session – especially since it gives you the opportunity to get professional photos for this, but also because that gorgeous ring on your finger and the wonderful emotions that mirror it deserve to end up in your Big Day album.

·       If you want to shoot some getting ready pictures (and you should!), do make sure you do this in a very well-lit room with a background that’s actually representative of what is going on with you on this very special morning of your life.

·       Have a first look photo session before the ceremony. Most couples avoid seeing each other before the wedding (for fear that it will bring bad luck into their marriage). If you want to stick to tradition from this point of view, you can always have a first look session with your dad. We guarantee this will be a super-emotional and unforgettable.

·       The season outside does matter a lot. For instance, if you want to shoot one of those gorgeous sunset wedding pictures, then November is probably not a good idea but a sunnier month is the right decision.

You Probably Didn’t Know These Wedding Tips   

Everyone offers you their help and advice when you are planning the Big Day. And while there are definitely a lot of wedding planning tips that are actually useful, the truth is that there always seems to be something left out…

For example, did you ever know the following wedding tips? They are very important and they will contribute tremendously to helping you have a superb Big Day!

·       Take some time off. Yes, do this during the actual wedding day. Take a few minutes off to spend with your loved one far from the “madding crowd” – and then take a few minutes off to spend with your own self too. You have no idea how great this will feel!

·       You will feel exhausted from all the hugs and smiles. Yes, you are happy to see all these marvelous people celebrating with you and congratulating you on the wedding. However, it is really OK if you assign a bridesmaid to come and “save” you from this kind of situations too. Be polite, but don’t let an energy “outage” ruin this marvelous moment in your life…

·       If there’s any specificity you would like your wedding party to know about the rest of the guests, do make sure you share this with them. This will help you avoid any unpleasant situations during the wedding toasts – the more informed your key speakers are, the less likely it is that they will make a faux-pas and offend anyone in the audience.

Did You Know These Wedding Flower Tips?

Tips for wedding flowers

Tips for wedding flowers

Beautiful florals have always been quite the important wedding décor element. However, regardless of whether you want stunning roses or delicate daisies, you will definitely realize that wedding flowers cost quite a lot.

How to save money and still have a truly beautiful-looking wedding day? Here are some wedding flower tips all couples should know:

·       Go green. Perfect for spring and summer weddings, greenery-based arrangements are unique, fresh, and full of life. You can either replace the majority of your blooms with greenery, or, if you want to go all the way, you can always replace all flowers with different types of greenery arranged in a unique and beautiful manner. Either way, it will look gorgeous!

·       Go simple. Want to achieve a really elegant wedding décor? The simpler, the better – because, as everyone knows it, less is always more. Stick to smaller, simpler flowers grown locally and which are widely available in your wedding season. You will save yourself the trouble of paying for imported wedding flowers and ultra-sophisticated arrangements!

·       Go space-savvy. There’s absolutely no point in investing hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the flowers you will use with your cocktail hour space – especially since most guests will not spend more than 30-60 minutes there. Focus on your ceremony and reception spaces instead, so that you create the kind of ambiance every single guest will love.

·       Use candles. Beautiful candles are always cheaper than flowers – so don’t hesitate to make great use of them. Combined with blooms and greenery, candles can add a lot of light and beauty to your entire wedding décor.

Bridal beauty tips for your wedding

bridal beauty secrets

bridal beauty secrets

As a bride, you want nothing less than to look perfect on your wedding day – but what are the things to do to make sure you feel great in your own skin? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.

·       Start by prepping your skin. Finding a treatment that’s adequate for your skin is the first step to achieving a flawless finish – but do make sure not to try anything new too close to the wedding. Also, remember to apply a good primer before applying any kind of makeup – it will set the skin, reduce redness, and help you achieve a more long-lasting makeup.

·       Your hair is important too. Naturally, you want your hair to shine really nicely – so it is essential that you prevent it from dehydrating when curling or straightening it. Apply a bit of leave-in conditioner before using any kind of heated styling device on it, and remember to spritz a bit of gloss when the hairstyle is done too. It will look marvelous, both in the pictures and in real life too!

·       Sport the whitest smile in the room. You will smile in all the pictures you shoot on your wedding day – so make it a gorgeous one. Ideally, you should visit a dentist for a professional whitening treatment. However, great results can be achieved at home too (just make sure to invest in a quality product).

·       Pay attention to the eye makeup. You don’t have to wear a super-dramatic smoky eye to look great in the pictures. However, you might want to apply a bit of waterproof pencil liner and a pair of pretty false eyelashes. Even if you do your makeup on your own, these two elements will make your eyes look amazing!

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

Choose a garden theme for your wedding day

Garden weddings in NM

Garden weddings in NM

The wedding theme you choose for your wedding will dictate a number of other choices you will eventually have to make when planning the big day. Therefore, it is perfectly normal to want to choose a wedding theme that will truly suit you – now, five years from now, and at your golden anniversary too.

Why choose a garden theme for your big day – and how to pull it off in a beautiful way? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Garden weddings are highly appreciated in the spring and summer season precisely because they are very welcoming and cozy. Of course, other types of outdoor weddings can be just as beautiful – but a garden wedding has something comfy, familiar and informal about it that will surely make all the guests feel just like “home”.

·       Because the garden itself will be a really amazing starting point for the décor, you don’t have to go overboard with it (and it is actually not advisable to do so). A large bouquet of flowers, embroidered handkerchief invitations, glittery table numbers placed in the centerpiece vases – these are just some of the elements you could incorporate into your wedding décor.

·       Last, but definitely not least, don’t be afraid to get creative. Repurposed antique and vintage items are highly popular at garden weddings – so try and see if you cannot find something to re-integrate into your big day’s arrangements and décor.

Top things your wedding guests will dislike

Things your wedding guests won't like

Things your wedding guests won't like

Nobody wants their wedding guests to have an awful time – and you make no exception whatsoever. In fact, you want your guests to have the time of their lives, and while you are definitely free to create your own dream wedding, it is also important to be considerate of what they want.

Not sure which are the top things your wedding guests will dislike? Read on and find out more.

·       Receiving lines. Let’s admit it: receiving lines are polite and “appropriate”, but they can be really boring and they can waste precious party time. If you must see each of your guests, try to take a room tour once they’re all set in and to thank each table of guests for having attended the big day.

·       Three-day weekend wedding. Yes, three-day weekends may seem like an amazing idea for a wedding – but the absolute truth is that most of your guests will have other plans for their mini-vacations. If you absolutely must have your wedding on a three-day weekend, try to let people know long ahead of time.

·       Bad and incomplete directions. Your out-of-town guests need you to provide them with the very best directions to the venue. Be sure to bring everything together: maps, indications, landmarks that might appear along the way, GPS coordinates, and so on. Also, it is probably a very good idea to have your directions tested by someone who doesn’t know the city yet, so that you can see where you’re wrong and how to edit the directions themselves.

Choose the right setting for your wedding

chose the perfect venue for your wedding

chose the perfect venue for your wedding

Creating the perfect setting for your Big Day is of the utmost importance – especially if you want this special event to mirror your own style and the story that stands behind the big “I Do”.

How to choose the right setting for your wedding? Here are some tips to help you with this.

·       Want to have a large, fabulously glamorous wedding? The best location for this type of event is, of course, a ballroom. However, keep in mind that you don’t have to stick with the traditional look of a ballroom too (e.g. you can ditch the round tables for the long, family-style ones, you can drape the space, you can add special lighting, and so on).

·       If you are the type of couple who wants a smaller wedding, having it in a small restaurant or venue is a really amazing solution. To make this space feel more personal and cozier, remember to add proper lighting into the décor (ideally, candles will create a very warm, romantic vibe). Furthermore, it is also recommended to personalize the space with your own curtains, elements that represent you and your loved one, and flowers that are complementary to the décor.

·       Last, but definitely not least, if you want to have an outdoor wedding, be sure to put your guests’ comfort before anything else. From their seats to the temperature of the space and to the availability of bug repellents, you should ensure nothing misses from the “perfect evening mix”. Also, it would be best if you delimitated the space a little – such as by setting up a tent, or some drapes to make the space feel cozier and more personal.

Tips for the Maid of Honor

Maid of Honor duties

Maid of Honor duties

Have you been chosen as a Maid of Honor? You must be feeling more than special! However, please remember that this role comes with a lot of responsibility as well – and the bride relies on you to help her plan the Big Day.

What are some of the most important things a Maid of Honor has to do? We have some tips for you – continue reading and find out more.

·       Be the one to coordinate and communicate with the other bridesmaids. Given that the bride has a lot of things to do before the Big Day, she may not always have the time to communicate with each bridesmaid in particular – so this task will fall unto your shoulders. Make sure the ladies get all the messages, relay important messages they have for the bride, and, of course, make sure they all get their dresses in time too.

·       Plan the bridal shower and the bachelorette party. Most of the times, planning the pre-wedding events is the duty of the Maid of Honor – so be sure to make them unforgettable. You don’t have to stick with traditional activities for these parties, though – be creative and plan something you know the bride will love.

·       Be there for your friend. Before the wedding day when she’s setting up everything, on the wedding day when she’s getting ready or when she simply needs a break from all the agitation, after the wedding when she is sending her Thank You notes – your friend will need you with her. Be the one to put a smile on her face!

Regardless of the vendors your friend may be searching for, don’t forget to remind her of New Mexico Wedding Expos & Guide. Tell her to come here and we bet she’ll love the beautiful range of talented wedding specialists we’ve brought in!

Tips for saving money for your wedding

Money-saving tips for your wedding

Money-saving tips for your wedding

Your wedding day is one of the most amazing ones in your entire life – so it’s more than natural that you want everything about it to be really beautiful. Does this mean you have to spend a fortune on everything – ranging from the dress and down to the Thank You Notes?

We have some tips to help you save money the easy way – read on and find out more.

·       It’s very important to choose the right ceremony site. If you want to maximize your savings and spend your money on something that has a special significance for you, try to find an unconventional place for your big moment. If you want a religious wedding, a chapel, church, or a place of worship will both be an excellent choice. If you want something different, try to find a garden or simply have a city hall wedding.

·       As for the wedding reception venue, avoid large ballrooms and luxurious locations. Instead, opt for something simpler and more naturally beautiful (this will help you save big money on flowers and décor as well). A garden, a museum, an old library – they can all play the part for your wedding reception venue and they are absolutely amazing and unique as well.

·       Looking to save money on the wedding itself? Focus on the basics: good music and delicious foods. Skip the champagne toast and invite guests to toast with whatever drinks they have on hand. Play great music and make sure everyone’s having the time of their lives on the dance floor. Serve comfort foods and mouthwatering sweets. Guests don’t need more than that, really.

Décor inspiration for your wedding

Decor for your wedding

Decor for your wedding

The success of a wedding relies on a lot of factors – but one of the most important ones is the ambiance you create for your guests. Of course, your wedding décor is a huge part of this!

How do you decorate your big day in a stylish, beautiful, and personal way? We have some wonderful ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

·       Hanging flowers or umbrellas (your choice!). If you want to make your wedding venue feel comfier and cozier, hang florals from the ceiling. They will add a lot more intimacy to the room, and they will also be a wonderful way to complement the entire décor. If you want a more playful approach to this idea, hang opened umbrellas upside-down – they will add so much color to the mix!

·       Family-style dinner. Looking for ways to make your wedding feel comfier? Replace the traditional seated meal with a family-style dinner. Long, rectangular tables are perfect for passing around the different dishes – and they push guests to socialize more with one another too. Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!

·       Greenery. If you got tired of the old-fashioned roses and peonies, switch to… greenery. What was once considered to be just a complement to the actual floral arrangements is now a piece of décor in its own right – so don’t hesitate to go above and beyond with the greenery.

·       Patterned table linens. A patterned table linen can change the entire appearance of your wedding tables – so don’t be afraid to play around and add a bit of color and uniqueness to your décor.
