Create a Dreamy Garden Wedding Theme

Garden wedding themes are all the rage, especially now, with summer here in full force. If you have your heart set on the suave, yet truly unique vibes of a country garden wedding theme, you definitely want all aspects of it to be fully coordinated with the bigger concept. How to do it? We have some ideas that might inspire you to create something utterly gorgeous – so read on and find out more.

·        Have a tent or a marquee. Yes, we know the weather is supposed to be nice – but you know what they say… summer rains, you can never predict them. Better be prepared than sorry! Not to mention, a tent or a marquee offers a whole new perspective on decoration, so you can actually use your creativity here. For instance, imagine a garland made with pastel colored triangles hanging from your marquee – wouldn’t it look lovely for your wedding theme?

·        Yes, the cake makes no exception from the wedding theme. You can either decorate it with fresh flowers, or you can choose to take the more playful (and probably much more weather-proof) option, fondant. Don’t forget to add a pair of cute marzipan “bride and groom” toppers too!

·        Pastel bridesmaids. Your super-ladies need to complement the wedding theme too – so why not allow them to dress in just about any pastel color? Doing this will add liveliness, sweetness, and style to your entire wedding – plus, it will also help you make sure your bridesmaids are happy with their dresses.

Wedding Guests: What Not to Wear

Although you may not have to wear very expensive clothes as a wedding guest, there’s a very high probability that you do want to wear something that’s tasteful and makes a great impression. What are the items you should totally not wear to a wedding, though? We have gathered some etiquette tips to help you decide on the best attire – so read on and find out more.

·        White is off-limits. There are cases when the bride and groom specifically request everyone to wear white, or cases when the white dress is not a necessary tradition. However, unless you are 100% certain of either of these cases, you will be much better off avoiding white – or any other light pastel color that may come off as white in the pictures.

·        Jeans are off-limits too. Yes, some wedding invitations say “casual” – but that does not in any way mean you can wear your trashy jeans and a T-shirt. Wear something that’s at the bridge between elegant and comfortable – such as slacks and button-down shirts, casual cocktail dresses, or anything similar, really.

·        Flashy is off-limits as well. In general, you should allow your common sense to guide you through the entire process of choosing the right attire. If something is too flashy, too colorful, too shiny, too sparkly, or too provocative, it is more than likely that it is completely unsuitable for a wedding (even for the most casual one). Keep it low-key, elegant, simple, and sweet – you’ll win everyone’s admiration this way.

Wedding Etiquette Tips for Your Guest List

Creating the right guest list is absolutely fundamental to planning the perfect wedding – but sometimes, this may prove to be one of the most difficult tasks as well.

·        If you decide not to invite certain people at your wedding, be very honest about it, regardless of what your reasons may be. You may be having financial issues with inviting too many people, or you may simply think you don’t know certain people enough to invite them at your wedding – whatever the reasoning behind it may be, it is highly important to be completely sincere when asked about it. Otherwise, you may fuel drama you really don’t want at your wedding.

·        It is also important not to give in to compromises. Your parents may insist on inviting more of their friends or distant relatives – but this is your wedding, and you shouldn’t accept any compromise. The moment you accept an “unwanted” guest on your list is the moment you open the doors to more of these cases – and the last thing you want is to feel sad about this on your Big Day.

·        Last, but not least, don’t let the people not invited ruin it for the ones who are. Focus on making your guests’ experience truly pleasant. This is a happy day for them, just as it is for you too – and they deserve to be treated royally for having taken their time to join you in this wonderful celebration.
