Next Stop Honeymoon

 

Are you the one who will be booking their Honeymoon as one of the first things on the list or will you be leaving it until the last minute once everything else is paid for?

Having chatted to a few couples there really is a mix of opinions with regards to a Honeymoon..... some say they are getting it booked straight away as its an important part of the wedding planning preparations and then others have said they hadn't even thought about it yet and that they will look into into once everything is paid for.

 

A honeymoon is not just a holiday it is the first time away as Husband and Wife, a time to relax after all the stress of planning your wedding and also having the opportunity of maybe visiting somewhere you have always wanted to go but would never really do it as just your normally annual holiday.

Then its deciding what type of honeymoon to have..... do you go with Beach, City, Adventure, Ski or maybe even a Road Trip.

 

Beach - A perfect way to unwind, chill in the sunshine and basically not do much. With so many places to choose from this. You could go with an All Inclusive Hotel or maybe just a small island bungalow. With your days spent relaxing by the pool or beach, maybe a bit of sightseeing and then watching the sunset with a cocktail in your hand. A few location ideas for you Thailand, Fiji, Bali, Seychelles to name a few..... Is this your type of Honeymoon?

City - If you are not a beach bum and enjoy the city life and exploring then this could be the honeymoon that is perfect for you. You can spend your days walking, cycling or maybe bus tours around the stunning city sights then come the evenings visit the restaurants, Bars or maybe even the theatres. A few ideas for you New York, Boston, Rome, Paris. Is this your type of Honeymoon?

Adventure - for all the adrenaline junkies out there, if your an active pair and love trying new things then this is an great honeymoon option for you. Spend your days jumping off cliffs, scuba diving into the lush turquoise seas, spend the day with the orangutans or if your feeling really tough then climb a mountain. A couple of location ideas for you Killimanjaro, Red Sea, Borneo, Brazil, Costa Rica...... So is this your type of Honeymoon.

Ski - So a snowing break is more what your looking for. Hitting the slopes by day, feeling the fresh air against your face and then by night cosying up by the fire with a glass of wine with your loved one. Sounds lovely doesnt it. A few location options for your France, Bulgaria, Italy, Canada.... Is this your type of Honeymoon.

Road Trip - for the explorers at heart. Touring from place to place, exploring new things and getting to see everything from mountains to beaches to national parks. You can do this with a campervan or grab a convertable and stay in hotels for a bit more luxury. A few ideas for this USA, Australia, New Zealand, Europe... Is this your Honeymoon.

Feeding your guests is a big part of the day otherwise you will end up with unhappy guests :( not a good start to a wedding day. But deciding on what type of food you want for your wedding day can be a big decision.

Deciding on what style of food comes down to:

1) Style of wedding - rustic, garden, beach, highend hotel

2) Budget

3) Time of Wedding - as this may decide whether you have just the main meal and then not have an evening buffet

There are so many different options for your wedding reception food for example:

1) Sit down meal

2) BBQ

3) Canapes

4) Buffet

5) Food Carts 

6) Food Bars

A sit down meal tends to be the more traditional way of serving food but tends to be the more expensive one. Normally looking at 3-4 courses and you have more of a formal sitting plan for everyone. 

food 2

BBQ is a great option if your on a smaller budget and having an outdoor wedding. Its a lot more relaxed and you can then opted for a seating plan or just let people get comfy where they please. You could also have a Hog roast as an option too.

bbq

Canapes can be nice for your guests once they arrive at the venue, if your wedding food isnt going to be for a few hours its a good way of keeping your guests happy until the main food comes out. Some canapes can be pricey depending on your venue and what you have.

food 10

Buffet is a another great option if your on a tighter budget. You can use the buffet for your main meal or for your evening guests when they arrive. Its a good way of letting your guests have a range of food and they can help themselves. Again adds a more relaxed atmosphere to the wedding.

jessica and dean 23

Food Carts/Trucks are a great alternative to wedding food and adds something different to your wedding. There are many options out there from A Fish and Chip Van, Mexican Van, Jacket Potato Van for example. I think this sort of food works perfect if your having a garden wedding or a festival themed wedding. Creates a lovely relaxed wedding feel perfect for a couple that isnt looking for your traditional wedding.

fish and chip van

Food Bars/Carts are great. Mainly tend to be more for your desserts but thats fine as everyone loves a good dessert. You can have a Candy bar, Popcorn Bar, Icecream Bar or maybe a Cake Bar. Really ends a FAB twist to serving your desserts.

cake cart

So a few different ideas there for your food at your up and coming wedding. I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration and maybe made you think more about what food you want to eat at your wedding.

Would love to hear what you went for in the end............. I had your traditional sit down meal but did have a chocolate fountain for the evening...yummy. 

Happy Wedding Planning

This is a beautiful traditional that has been around for many years. By adding these 4 things onto the bride they say it will not only bring you good luck on your Wedding Day but also it will help with fertility and prosperity.

The Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue and a sixpence in your shoe has come from an Old English Rhyme. Something Old represents continuity; Something New offers optimism for the future; Something Borrowed symbolises borrowed happiness; Something Blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom. These 4 things are usually something that is given to you by a family member or a guest, although there is no harm in you buying any of them yourself.

something old

There are so many different ways of including these things into your wedding attire, from jewellery, shoes, pins for your bouquet, garter, blue writing inside your dress, small tokens added to your bracelet or bouquet, a vintage piece of clothing or an underskirt or veil borrowed.

trash the dress 6It seems to be a growing trend of brides trashing their wedding dresses in a photo shoot. But will you be doing it?

I have to say I still have my dress in my loft 11 years later - yes it just sits there but I do sometimes think about maybe should I do a trash the dress photoshoot for one of our big anniversaries. As it does make some AMAZING photos and you can be so creative with it.

 

 

It is a growing trend all around the world now and started back in the USA in the late 90s. With so many different ways of trashing your dress and it doesnt always have to be that you ruin your wedding dress as it depends on how wild you want to be, from inwater/underwater photo shoots, to paint fights or a photo shoot at a muddy farm you can be so creative and its a lovely way to show yours and your partners personality. 

trash the dress 3 opt trash the dress 5 opt trash the dress 7 opt
trash the dress 2 opt 1 trash the dress 2 opt trash the dress 1 opt trash the dress 4 opt

 

The trend has got that big that back in September 2009 they staged a huge Trash the Dress event on a beach in the Netherlands and this then happened in 2010,2011 and 2012. Now I think this would have been a great experience and so much fun.

So in the name of Art - will you be Trashing Your Dress??

We would love to hear from any brides that are or have trashed their dress, send us in a photo and a brief on where and why you chose that type of shoot and we will share it on our Facebook page and into our Trash the Dress Photo Album

There are so many different wedding traditions all around the world, some people stick with their own countries wedding traditons others take on other traditions from other countries. This might be because......

you just like the tradition from the other Country,

the Country means something to both of you and you wanted to include it into your wedding,

maybe a family or close friend is from that country and you wanted to bring their traditions into you wedding celebrations.

or perphaps you are getting married in that Country and would like to take on some of their wedding traditions

With this in mind I have found 20 wedding traditions from around the world that you may like to use as part of your Wedding Day:

aremaninaArmenian: Before the bride dons her veil she circles it above the heads of the single ladies in her dressing room to bring them luck in finding a husband. Then a happily married woman will place the veil on her head to bring the marriage luck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ozAustralian: Guests are given stones and asked to hold them during the ceremony. At the end, guests place the stones in the unity bowl that the couple will keep and display afterwards to remind them of the support and presence of their friends and family

 

 

 

 

 

 

chineseChinese: During a traditional tea ceremony, the bride serves tea to her parents and her new in-laws as a symbol of respect. To update the tradition, the groom can serve tea with his new bride

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

czechCzech: Traditionally the bridesmaids make a wreath of rosemary for the bride to wear, it symbolizes the wish for wisdom, love, and loyalty. Not only is this sweet, but super cute! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

dutchDutch: At the reception a tree branch of any type is placed near the sweetheart table, and guests are provided with paper leaves/tags attached to ribbons to write their special wish for the happy couple. The bride and groom can then read and hang them on the tree

 

 

 

 

 

 

filiponFilipino: At traditional Filipino wedding receptions, the bride and groom release two gorgeous white doves to represent a long, peaceful, and harmonious life together. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

frenchFrench: The widely known layered wedding cake originated in France, but less well known is the croquembouche, a pyramid of crème-filled pastry puffs covered in a caramel glaze. If the bride and groom can kiss over the pastry tower without knocking it over, then they would have a lifetime of prosperity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

germanGerman: Before the wedding day the friends and family of the bride and groom create a wedding newspaper that is filled with pictures, articles, and stories of the engaged couple. The paper can be used in many sorts of ways from wedding programs to guestbooks, they can even be sold for honeymoon funds!

 

 

 

 

 

 

greekGreek: The bride and groom are basically queen and king of their universe for the day. During the ceremony they wear crowns made of either gold or orange blossoms that are connected with a ribbon to signify the union.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

indianIndian: Indian weddings are traditionally multiple day affairs, and involve numerous intricate ceremonies. The painting of the hands and feet of the bride, called a mehndi, is one of our favorites. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

lrishIrish: The brides typically wore beautiful wildflower wreaths in their hair and maybe even in their bouquet, and they braided their hair to symbolize feminine power and luck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

italian

Italian: The groom's tie is cut off and then cut into pieces of different sizes. Afterwards the pieces are collected and the friends "sell off" the pieces as souvenirs. Any collected money is then handed over to the bride and groom, and traditionally is used to pay the band. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

japeneseJapanese: The crane is a symbol of longevity and prosperity. 1,001 gold origami cranes are folded to bring luck, good fortune, longevity, fidelity, and peace to the marriage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

mexicanMexican: A lazo is a large rosary, a ribbon or a flower cord that is symbolically draped around the necks or shoulders of the bride and the groom. It symbolizes their union and their commitment to always be together side-by-side

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

norwayNorwegian: Kransekake is a cake made of concentric rings stuck together with white icing. The bride and groom lift the top layer of the cake at their wedding. The number of cake rings that stick to the top one is said to be the number of children they will have.

 

 

 

 

 

 

pakistanPakistani: After a Pakistani wedding, the couple returns home for the "showing of the face." The bride will remove her veil and, while the newlyweds are busy gazing at one another, the bride's female relatives make off with the groom's shoes and ransom them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

pervianPeruvian: Charms attached to ribbons are tucked between layers of the wedding cake. Each woman grabs a ribbon and pulls. At the end of one ribbon is a fake wedding ring. Whomever receives the ring is said to be next in line for marriage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

spainSpanish: Orange blossoms are the flowers of choice for Spanish brides because they symbolize happiness and fulfillment. They can be seen in the bouquet, decorations, and even in the bride's hair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

scottishScottish: The Scottish like to tie the knot in a literal way. The couple participates in a hand-fasting ceremony where their wrists are bound together by a cloth or string.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

swedenSwedish: A Swedish bride gets to wear three bands, one for her engagement, one for marriage, and one for motherhood. A tiara is also worn to symbolize her virgin status. In the past crowns made of myrtle leaves were worn instead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this is such a lovely idea and it is something a bit different to add to your ceremony

So....Do you think you will be adding any of these wedding traditionals from around the World to your Wedding Day?

Wedding dress shopping is something a Bride cant wait to do or dreads. Having experience in the Bridal Industry I see many Brides coming in who know exactly what they are looking for but others that are terified and dont know where to start. I have a few helpful tips to help all you future brides out there with you dress shopping.

1) Have a budget in mind and stick to it – it is so easy to go to a shop and get side tracked and you know that if you just try that £5k dress on just for “fun” you will not find anything to beat it

2) Only take a few people with you, mum, best friend, sister for example – if you have too many people with you, there will be many opinions bouncing around and it will make it harder for you to make a decision

3) Have a look in bridal magazines or online at what styles you like and you can even print them off to help your wedding dress consultant find that right dress – but also be open to try different styles if you find your not “feeling it” a lot of the time the dress you choose will be completly different to what you thought you would go for.

4) If buying from a Bridal Boutique then they say allow 6 – 8 months, this gives you time to get it ordered and have any alterations. However if your buying from a Bridal Outlet store then you can walk in 2 weeks beforehand but be aware that you may still need alterations with the dress and steamstresses do get booked up quickly. Alterations is normally done 6-8weeks before your wedding.... of course this doesnt always happen due to time scales so just bare in mind you may need to ring around a few places to get an appointment.

5) And lastly have fun….. this is suppose to be an enjoyable experience and if you starting to get stressed then maybe you need to call it a day and arrange another appointment – the last thing you want is to be stressing about your dress.
