Seaside Inspiration: Beach Wedding Ideas to Make Your Guests Feel Extra Special

Seaside Inspiration: Beach Wedding Ideas to Make Your Guests Feel Extra Special

When you’re planning a wedding, you want to ensure that your guests are as comfortable as can be. Easy to do, if your wedding is in a classic cathedral and you hold the reception at a nice comfy venue. Keeping your guests comfortable and at ease at a seaside wedding may take a bit more creativity. Here are some of our favorite inspiring ideas that will make your beach wedding guests feel (almost) as special as the bride and groom.

Guest comfort from toe to head

When you hold your wedding on a sandy beach, there’s an excellent chance your guests will want to take their shoes off. Provide some sort of “shoe station” along the path where guests will approach the beach wedding. A simple grass mat held in place with heavy pebbles can suffice. For a larger wedding with more guests, consider a portable shelving unit with legs planted firmly in the sand. Make a sign that invites guests to go barefoot and offer three baskets of brand-new flip flops in small, medium and large sizes. Somewhere at the shoe station, offer a new soft painter’s brush that guests can use to whisk sand from between their toes before putting their shoes back on, recommends Exclusively Weddings.

 

Daytime seaside weddings can be bright, sunny events, especially on hot summer afternoons. Provide an assortment of cheap sunglasses that guests may use to deflect ocean glare and take home later as a beach wedding favor. Go all out and offer cute straw hats and woven fans, too. Thoughtful brides and grooms want their guests to feel the love, not heatstroke.

 

 

Food and drink, beach wedding style

Take a tip from the Tradewinds Island Resort, and present individual servings of crudites and dip. Peel carrots and cut them lengthwise into five-inch sections. Do the same with stalks of celery. Poke a peeled, halved radish with a toothpick and place an assortment of veggies into unbreakable cups with an inch or so of ranch dressing inside. Individual servings of shrimp or crab cocktail are always welcomed at beach weddings and offer a taste reminiscent of the nearby sea.

Decorate a picnic table with white linens. Hot-glue metal washers every few inches along the hem of the tablecloth to prevent it from flapping in the beachy breeze. Lay a pretty spread of beach-friendly foods such as sushi, iced oysters on the half shell, coconut shrimp and sliced crusty bread, and don’t forget the napkins.

Have a canoe? Scrub the inside, haul it to the beach and fill it with ice and canned beverages or drinks in plastic bottles. Many beaches disallow glass containers, so you might have to keep the champagne in a bucket in the car and serve in plastic glasses. Be sure to have a recycling receptacle handy, too.

Of course, the most important part of a beach wedding is the love and delight you share with your beloved, your families, and your friends. Make everyone feel as special as you do on your once-in-a-lifetime day.

Unmissable Pieces Of Advice You Need To Hold The Perfect Wedding Reception

You might be surprised to know that the wedding reception can make or break a wedding. After all, it’s the main part of the wedding that guests look forward to. And it’s what they will remember from your big day. Therefore, once you have sorted out your ceremony, it’s time to switch your attention to sorting out your reception. After all, you want your wedding to stand out from the rest. Therefore, here are some unmissable pieces of advice to hold the perfect wedding reception that your guests will absolutely adore.

Choose a beautiful location with lovely grounds

First things first, you need to pick somewhere to hold your wedding. And one of the main factors that you should be considering when you are choosing a reception venue is the location. After all, the location is what will help your wedding stand out from the rest. And your wedding photographs won’t look spectacular if you don’t have a beautiful location full of photo-worthy spots. Therefore, hunt down a fantastic location which has lovely grounds which will be perfect for your photos. And if you pick somewhere wonderful, it will definitely get your guests ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ when they arrive at your venue; a reaction every bride is looking for!

Pick somewhere that is exclusive to your wedding party

When you are holding your wedding, it can be impersonal if other hotel guests are walking around amongst your guests. In fact, it can make your wedding feel less special if you keep bumping into people you don’t know! Therefore, you can make your wedding extra special by getting an exclusive venue. That way, there will be no one else aside from your guests during the big day. It can make your guests feel more comfortable too if they know they don’t have to be concerned about offending strangers. And with an exclusive wedding reception venue, you know that all the staff will be focused on your big day so it can make you feel like you and your new husband are VIPs.

Opt for a venue that has plenty of room for your guests

It’s also important that you have enough room for guests at your wedding venue. After all, there’s nothing worse than everyone being cramped in one room. In fact, it can make it a nightmare when your guests are trying to get a great shot of the first dance. And it can be hard for everyone to get their groove on with limited space. Therefore, to ensure your wedding reception is fantastic, you need to pick a spacious venue. With more than one room, it can be good if people want some time away from the loud music. After all, it can be hard for older guests to handle hours of listening to loud tunes!

Make sure that the food is to die for at the venue

Another thing that can help your wedding reception to stand out from the crowd is the food. After all, everyone can’t wait to try the wedding breakfast. And you want to leave a lasting impression. The best way you can do this is to make sure the catering is top notch. Ask for samples before the big day so that you can check out the food for yourself. And you can then make changes before your wedding day to ensure the food is cracking. As we said before, remember to ask your caterers if they can do a custom menu for your big day. That way, you can make the food extra special and delicious for your wedding day!

Keep surprising your guests during the wedding reception

It’s also important to make sure your guests are entertained throughout the day. After all, it can be a long day for guests, especially for people who don’t know many other guests. Therefore, you need to keep surprising them during the day. For example, you might want to hire some magicians to come and keep guests busy in-between wedding breakfast courses. And you could consider doing some fireworks in the evening. These little extras can help your big day to stand out from everyone else’s.

Don’t leave too much time before the disco begins

After the wedding breakfast, it can be a long wait until the disco starts. And it’s easy for some guests to get bored during this time. However, you can ensure you have the perfect wedding reception by timing the day out properly. It’s best to not start the day off too early. Otherwise, there will be a lot of sitting around for guests. You should consider having the ceremony at 1 or 2 pm, and then sit down for the meal at 4 pm. That way, you should be finished by 6.30pm, and then you can start the disco at half 7, so there is only an hour wait for guests. It means they won’t be bored and will enjoy your wedding reception.

Pick somewhere with accommodation close by

There’s nothing worse than having to drive for miles after a wedding. After all, it tends to mean you have to leave earlier. And as for drinking, it has to be out of the question. Therefore, to ensure you hold the perfect wedding reception, you should pick somewhere that has accommodation. That way, people can shuffle to bed once the party is over. And if you can’t find a venue with bedrooms, you should at least pick a venue which has several hotels within five miles. That way, your guests can just get a taxi back to their hotel after the wedding reception and collect the car the next day! Your guests will look back on your wedding reception much more favorably if they can enjoy themselves without worrying about accommodation and transport!

 

Make sure you accessorise the venue well

Decor is also another way you can make your wedding reception perfect. After all, adding cute touches like special photos of you and the groom, and beautiful flowers around the venue can make your wedding extra special. Therefore, get some great accessories you can use to dress your venue before the big day. The more personal, the better as this will help to make your wedding unique. You can find further help in this article on planning the decor for your venue.

Don’t make it too formal for your guests  

With a lot of weddings nowadays, they are skipping traditions. After all, things like receiving lines can just make the day feel even longer for guests. And long speeches can also be painful when the guests just want to get merry. So if you want to hold the perfect wedding reception, you need to ensure your wedding isn’t too formal for your guests. Skip traditions which are past their sell-by date and focus on ensuring your guests have a fab time.

Be careful when it comes to your seating arrangements

Sorting the seating plan leaves many couples shuddering in horror. After all, it can be a nightmare sorting out who is sitting where. But if you want to hold the perfect wedding reception, you need to make sure everyone will be comfortable in their seats. After all, you don’t want for your guests to feel uncomfortable next to someone they don’t like. Therefore, spend time getting the seating arrangements right. And if you can’t please everyone, let people sit where they want and have no seating plan! That way, you can’t be blamed for any awkward seating arrangements.

And remember if you need some help holding an amazing wedding reception, you can hire a professional wedding planner to organize your day. They will be able to think of small touches which will make it extra special.

Different Brides, Different Weddings – What Your Wedding Décor Says About You

While everybody knows what getting married means, the idea that each one has of the perfect wedding is different from a person to another. In truth, everyone has their own notion of perfection and of what would make the ideal wedding location for them. What matters, when you are getting married, is, after all, to be the star of the day. This starts by choosing the right wedding location for you.

Happy wedding from Pexel

#1. The Romantic Bride Who Wants It All

Often, the wedding day is the only day in a woman’s life when she gets to indulge the dreams she cherished as a little girl. That is the reason why many women choose a romantic wedding, with a princess type of gown that they will remember forever. For these, the best way to make the dream come true is to find a castle, such as the one from Chateau Polonez that you can enjoy if you decide to get married in Houston.

 

#2. The Modern And Elegant Bride Who Understands The Value Of Practicality

Modern-thinking brides have a tendency to move away from the royal type of wedding for something that will be a little more simple. While they will still be wearing a white dress in most cases, they will pick a venue that is practical in term of location but also in terms of administration. They are more likely to be looking for hotel venues, that are equipped to receive and serve their guests during the day, but also that can offer rooms to those who want to spend the night there.

#3. The Bride Who Lives In A Dream From The Past

Vintage weddings are a hot trends since the past years, and therefore brides who are looking to get married in a vintage-like dress and within a décor from the past, prefer country estates which can offer an intimate and homely atmosphere very close to a story of Miss Marple. Often country houses are decorated in a way that enables the bride to pick themes from the first half of the past century without any trouble.

#4. The Bride Who Wants To Celebrate Her Love With A Few Chosen Ones

What makes a wedding day count is not the number of guests who are present, but the amount of love in the room. For the brides who are sentimental and deeply attached to their family roots, a wedding at home is an attractive option that lets them choose only a few lucky ones to celebrate the big day with. The ambiance is caring and intimate during these, but there is another advantage to them. Weddings at home celebrate love above expenses and preparations, and they also make sure that the newly wed couple becomes an immediate part of the family life.

#5. The Original Bride Who Is Full Of Imagination

Some brides want their special day to be as unique as they want their life to be. Alternate venues, such as botanical gardens or theaters, can now be easily hired for weddings. You might want to get in touch with professional organizers to get things sorted out and discuss your wishes as there are plenty of locations around that can give your wedding the touch of uniqueness that you are looking for.

Say No To The Stress – Your Guide To Planning The Perfect Wedding Reception

Planning your wedding reception could take a long time, and so you need to start as soon as possible. You’ll want to make sure the event goes off without a hitch, and so there’s a lot of work to undertake. The last thing you was is to discover the DJ has made a double booking a few days before you get married. Issues like that could cause lots of stress and leave you feeling less than excited. So, use some of the advice from this page to ensure you don’t encounter too many problems. As with anything in this world, you just need to make sure you prepare everything ahead of time.

Locate the perfect venue

Choosing your reception venue is not an easy task. There are lots of things to consider before you sign on the dotted line and hand over your money. For instance, you’ll have to ensure the building is in a suitable location so that everyone can attend. You’ll also have to think about the size of the room and the number of people you plan to invite. Just remember that most venues will allow you to haggle over the price. So, you should never accept the first quote you receive.

Find a reliable catering company

There is no getting away from the fact that you will have to spend a lot of money on food for your guests. So, it makes sense to look for a catering specialist that has a good track record. Being as you’re spending so much, you need to ensure the people at your party get the best cuisine available. Like it or not, some catering companies are better than others, and that’s why you need to read online reviews. You could also ask any married friends for word of mouth recommendations. At the end of the day, you’re only going to have one wedding, and so you want to make it as special as possible. The right food can help to make that happen.

Order your flowers from a respected florist

You probably ordered most of your church flowers a long time ago. However, you might not want to use the same company to deliver flowers for your reception. With that in mind, now is the time to research alternative providers online. Just make sure you explain to them that you’re buying for a wedding. That way, they should take extra care and deliver everything with time to spare. Avoid large chain stores as your flowers will look the same as everyone else’s. You are much better to choose an independent business where the owner cares deeply about the displays they create.

We hope your wedding day is everything you imagined, and that you make lots of happy memories. Now you just need to start worrying about booking your honeymoon. The destination is down to you, but places like Mexico and St Lucia are incredibly popular at the current time. Just make sure you visit somewhere you haven’t been before, and you should enjoy the experience. Good luck!

 

Everything You Need To Know To Pull Off An Amazing Winter Wedding

Everything You Need To Know To Pull Off An Amazing Winter Wedding

When it comes to the most popular months to get married, it comes as no surprise that the summer months of June, July and August come out on top. Us humans often fail at being prepared for the elements, so having a summery wedding takes the pressure off in that respect. But if you’re up for something a little off the cuff, why not consider having a winter wedding instead? Equally, if not more beautiful than a summer one, they have been growing in popularity over the last few years. One of the reasons behind this is that they can look and feel inherently glamorous. If you are leaning towards the idea of booking your wedding for when the snow falls, here are some extra touches you can bring to it to really make it sparkle.

Festive food

In the baking summer heat, most people crave one of two types of food – BBQ, or salad! Winter food automatically has a much bigger range on offer and therefore you can get a little more inventive with it. Hearty, warming dishes such as stews or chilli con carnes always go down a treat if you are having a buffet-style meal at your wedding. Or, indulge in seasonal vegetables and prized cuts of meat that you simply wouldn’t be able to get at any other time of year. Dessert is where it can really get interesting, as you could have anything from toffee apples to Christmas pudding on the menu. A pot of mulled wine never goes amiss either, and is guaranteed to get all your guests into the festive spirit.

Your look

A winter wedding gives you a chance to really pull out all the stops with your look. Summer wedding makeup and hair tends to be lighter and more delicate – after all, no one wants to be sweating off their makeup in 80 degree heat! But having your big day in a slightly cooler climate gives you the chance to have a bit more fun with your look. Channel your inner ice queen with a subtle silver eye, and finish the look off with some dramatic lashes – such as eye lashes by House of Lashes. A long sleeved lace dress is also a popular option for a winter wedding, as it still looks beautiful without leaving you too exposed. Of course, no winter bride would be complete without a fur stole to keep her warm – go for a bright one to add a pop of color or keep your look cool and classy with a snowy white one.

The decor

It is said that winter is the most magical of seasons – and with Christmas right around the corner, it can often feel that way indeed! Utilise this magic by choosing wedding decor that will take your guest’s breath away. This is your opportunity to go crazy with the sparkles and glitter! Use festive flowers or snowglobes as your centerpieces, and if you can, why not get hold of some fake indoor snow? Before you know it you’ll have your very own winter wonderland perfect for your big day.

Tips for Limiting Your Wedding Guest List

wedding planning, wedding blog, the art of wedding blog

 

Weddings can be tremendously expensive. The bigger the wedding, the more expensive it becomes. You might need extra transport, a bigger venue, more invites and a lot more food and drinks. Food, in fact, is one of the biggest expenses of your wedding day. A great way to save your money is to cut your guest list down, and the best way to keep your numbers low is to ask yourself these questions.

When Did You Last See Them?

Is this someone you only see at special occasions? Or even less? If it’s less, they don’t need an invite to your wedding. If you want a small wedding, only invite people that you see regularly. Or perhaps people that you’d like to see regularly, but family and work gets in the way. If you haven’t seen them for a year, and haven’t missed them, cross them off.

Would You Buy Them a Meal?

At the end of the day, you might well be buying all your wedding guests a 3-course meal, plus drinks and canapés, maybe even a buffet afterwards. Would you buy them a meal in everyday life? If no, are you sure you want them at your wedding?

wedding planning, wedding blog, best wedding blog, art of weddings blog

Are They on the List Because of Someone Else?

Often when we make a guest list, there’s a lot of “well, we need to invite her, because we’re inviting him”. Often this happens with work friends or extended family; people you’re worried might get upset if you don’t invite them. Don’t do this. Invite who you want to. Only because you want to. Explain to people that you’re only having a small wedding, so not to get offended if they’re not invited. You’ll probably find that quite a few of the people who only made the list because they know someone else on it will be quite relieved they don’t have to face the expense of being a wedding guest for someone they’re not really that close to.

Will You Speak to Them on the Day?

Will you or your partner take time out of your wedding day to speak to this person? Would you notice if they weren’t there? It they aren’t going to have a positive impact on your day, don’t invite them.

Do They Need a Plus One?

Are you giving everyone a plus one? Obviously, partners you know should be invited. But if you need to cut the numbers down, don’t feel bad about asking people to attend on their own.  A lot of people are opting to do that these days.

The best thing to do is to decide what size wedding you want. How many guests do you want to invite? Pick a number that works with both your dream wedding, and your budget. Next, write a first draft of your list, then go down it answering these questions, and cross out any names you can. If you decide that you do want a big wedding, there are other ways to save. Look at ukweddingsavings.co.uk for tips and deals to help make your wedding day perfect, and within budget.
