I don’t know what’s happening but many of my friends are getting married soon so I have quite a few happy ever after parties to attend in the future. Keeping that in mind I thought I should write something about weddings and provide some inspiration for everybody planning or at least contemplating tying the knot.
I will admit I didn’t think about it much before but once I started it was a lot of fun. For me a wedding should be all about celebrating love and happiness and should reflect the personality of the bride and the groom. Ok, let be honest, it’s going to be mostly about the bride but still, it’s the thought that counts.
Here are the first things that come in mind when first starting the planning (once you nail these you can focus on smaller details and pretty much breathe easy since the main stuff is out of the way).
1. The dress
Any soon-to-be bride is going to tell you this is the most important thing...ever. Once the girl has the dress and the ring she will be happy. I’m personally partial to a bridal set engagement ring or at least a perfect, timeless princess cut diamond ring, but as long as the guy is the right one anything will work, even a heirloom piece.
When it comes to the dress I would go for something that makes you feel like a fairy – full skirt, lace inserts, retro detailing, long, transparent veil and even a whimsical hair piece. It depends on personal taste - every bride should have her dream dress and look for it until she finds it. Much like the groom you should never settle for less.:))))
When it comes to timeless jewelry my first choice is Anjolee - especially since all their pieces can be customized according to preference of metal type, diamond size and quality, length/size as well!
In my mind there’s no better wedding than a summer or fall wedding – warm, sunny weather is definitely a must. That’s mainly because I love outdoor weddings. There’s something so simple and romantic about a garden weeding that I can’t imagine it any other way. I’m thinking a white tent with lots of flowers and quirky colorful details.
3. The cake
I have a serious sweet tooth and I think a weeding is as good as the cake they serve. Something light but delicious is always a good choice. The way it looks is not as important but I do like it when the cake is a piece of art in itself – just look at this minimalist beauty topped with flowers (hopefully edible).
There’s also the music, flowers, food and decorations but once you have the basic you can choose the rest having them in mind and everything will be much easier and cohesive.
There’s really so much to write about this subject but I thought we should ease into it – we don’t want to get wedding crazy, do we? Feel free to share your perfect wedding scenario if you have one in mind!
