What Are Your Choices For A Wedding Venue?

Getting married is supposed to be the most wonderful day of your life. But getting to the ceremony takes months of planning and preparation. It can all be quite stressful for the poor bride! One of the most difficult things to arrange is the venue itself. Finding the right place on the date of your choice can be harder than you think. Many of the best wedding venues are often booked up months and years in advance.

There are alternatives, though. Rather than change your preferred date, why not change your destination? A destination wedding provides you with far more options too. Some places allow you to wed outdoors in the garden or even on the beach. And if you can guarantee good weather for your wedding, wouldn’t you be tempted?

One of the things that put so many couples off a destination wedding is getting the guests to come. Some brides feel it is necessary to cover the travel and accommodation costs for their guests when they are marrying overseas. For the bride and groom, it’s easy. Most newlyweds stay on at the destination to enjoy their romantic honeymoon. But many guests have to make the journey home again to get back to their families and jobs.

4 Wedding Items To Buy At Least 4 Months Before The Big Day

If your wedding is on the horizon, times are probably as stressful as they are exciting right now! Here are four important items you need to buy at least four months before you wedding. Read on to find out what they are. Untitled

Your wedding rings

Jewellery shop owners often report couples coming in two or three days before their wedding to buy their wedding rings. And, in some cases, they leave disappointed. This is because some wedding rings have to be ordered, and can take up to eight weeks to be ready for collection! Cutting it fine when it’s something so important is not a wise decision. Start shopping around for rings at least four months before the wedding. This gives you lots of time to try on different styles and to get your favourite one ordered. Don’t just look in-store, mind. Look online too. They can sometimes offer faster delivery, such as 2-3 weeks, like with these Tacori wedding rings.

How To Put Together Your Wedding Theme

We all dream of a beautiful wedding that looks stunning. Most of us have an idea for a theme that will help highlight our wedding. After all, we want a little style and personality in there too. There are many parts of the wedding that can be tailored to suit your personal tastes. It’s not all about the dress after all.

Start at the beginning. The venue you choose will have a certain classical style of its own. You may have chosen it because you love the shape of the windows or the attractiveness of the gardens. Colour and shape are important parts of any theme you choose. Many people choose hearts, but you can choose shapes of a Celtic origin or even chic scrolls.

The most popular colours for this year are mint green and powder blue. Of course, there’s nothing stopping you picking colours that mean something to you both. Or you could choose a colour that is prominent at your wedding venue. Once this is booked, it’s time to order the wedding invitations. If you have a look at these DIY wedding invitations you may also find a reference to your preferred shape too.
