Grooms Usually Have These Questions about Their Wedding Speeches

Wedding speeches

Wedding speeches

Giving a wedding speech can feel terrifying, regardless of whether you are an introvert or an extrovert. Truth be told, this is a huge moment in your life – and the pressure of the event will definitely add up to the pressure of delivering a piece of public speaking.

What are some of the most usual questions grooms have when it comes to their wedding speeches? We have gathered them (and the answers!) right below – so read on if you want to find out more.

·       What happens if you don’t like the bridesmaids very much? Sure, it’s your future wife’s choice to have certain ladies by her side on the Big Day. But this shouldn’t stop you from delivering an amazing video. You can mention the ladies, but you don’t have to say much about them. Focus on the bride and on the amazing love story that brought you together and up to this point.

·       What happens if your dad or anyone else makes fun of you? Their intentions are great, as they want to spice things up and break the ice – but if you are afraid of public speaking, this can feel like a real humiliation. If you know your dad is likely to crack a joke during your speech, and if you can actually “foresee” the type of joke he will make, prepare a sweet and funny comeback –your

·       Do you have to mention the Best Man? Yes, you can mention the Best Man – but don’t linger too much here. As mentioned before, you and your loved one should take the center stage!

Is It Alright to Update Your Wedding Registry?

Updating your gift registry

Updating your gift registry

We all know how delicate the wedding registry issue can be. Not only will you have to be really careful with the way you share it, but you will also have to make sure the items on the list are suitable for all types of guests and budgets, so that nobody gets offended in any way.

Is it OK to actually update your wedding registry as you move on with your wedding planning process? Well, we have gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on and find out more.

·       Not only is it allowed to change the wedding registry list, but it is actually recommended! The reason you should update your registry is related to the fact that you will plan a lot of pre-wedding events where guests may decide to buy a gift from the registry (e.g. the engagement party, the bridal shower, and so on).

·       Update your wedding registry before actually publishing it or sharing it with the wedding guests. It is not compulsory to change anything about it, but it is always a good idea to give it one last check, just to ensure the items on the list cover your guests’ styles and financial situations.

·       You should also update your wedding registry after the bridal shower. This is when a lot of your guests will decide to buy a gift from the registry list, so you should make sure the actual wedding guests don’t buy the same gifts.

·       Lastly, don’t forget to update your registry right before the wedding day as well. This is perfect for all those last-minute guests who haven’t bought a gift yet. Remember to include items that can be quickly and easily purchased, without too much hassle!

Don’t Let Stress Ruin Your Big Day – Eat Healthy!

Eating healthy to have a great wedding day

Eating healthy to have a great wedding day

We know you’ve heard this a thousand times before – but you really are what you eat. Everything you put in your body affects you (for better or for worse), and not just from a physical point of view.

For example, did you know certain foods can actually fight off anxiety and stress? We have gathered some examples right below – so read on if you want to be healthier, eat better food, and feel better about the entire wedding planning process.

·       Spinach. This green goodie is very high in magnesium, which helps you keep the blood pressure at a low minimum. Consequently, this will also improve your body’s reaction to stress and anxiety, especially before the Big Day. Plus, let’s admit it: spinach is the best green leaf to add to a salad, so why not include it in your regular meals?

·       Walnuts. If you thought walnuts are just plain and simple delicious, think again. Yes, they’re great as snacks, they work marvelously in salads, and they can be even added to smoothies. Beyond that though, walnuts are super-high in excellent nutrients and healthy fats (which, yes, you guessed it, can keep your blood pressure, stress, and anxiety at their lowest).

·       Cocoa. Who thought the main ingredient in chocolate would someday land on a healthy foods list? Due to the flavonoids and phenethylamine found in it, cocoa makes you plain and simply happy – so add a spoonful to your next smoothie if you want to start your wedding planning day in a high-energy pitch.

·       The entertainment. Whether it’s a Mariachi band or a really fun photo booth, your entertainment matter.

In any case, investing in your entertainment is a splurge worth diving into – precisely because it is absolutely fundamental to creating a truly unforgettable event!

Mailing Your Wedding Invitations, Everything You Should Know about It

wedding invitations

wedding invitations

Of course, you want your guests to genuinely love the invitations you send them – especially since this is the first contact they will make with your wedding. However, beyond design and calligraphy, you should also consider the way in which you actually mail the invitations. To help you with this, we have gathered some of the most important things to know about it – so read on and make sure your wedding invitations reach their destination in one piece!

·       Don’t lick the envelopes. You might have seen this in the movies and you might do this with regular old-school envelopes, but when it comes to your wedding invitations you should really skip the habit and use glue. Not only will this help you avoid the nasty taste and paper cuts, but it will also help you ensure the invitations stay glued throughout the mailing process.

·       Square or odd-shaped envelopes? Not a good idea for budget-savvy couples. Rectangular-shaped envelopes will be charged at a normal rate, but anything odd-shaped will be charged more (so you can skip the “unique element” for the shape of the invitations and focus on the numerous other special elements you can add to the suite and its design).

·       Send them from the inside the post office. Dropping the envelopes in a mailbox may not be a good idea because they might get damaged this way. Also, do make sure to ask the post office to hand cancel the stamps instead of sorting them automatically (which can damage them too).

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).

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.

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.

·       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.

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!

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!

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.
