4 Essentials to Keep in Mind When Searching for the Right Wedding Accessories

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

We bet you have imagined your wedding processional at least a thousand times since you got engaged!

And we also bet that looking absolutely picture-perfect was part of every scenario you made up – so it is perfectly natural that you actually want to make that happen.

How to pick the right wedding accessories, though?

We have gathered the top 4 essentials to keep in mind when searching for the perfect wedding accessories – so read on and find out more.

  • It’s all about your personal style. If you’re not the kind of woman who wears a lot of jewelry, you shouldn’t do this on your wedding day just because that’s what other brides did on their wedding days. Instead, you should embrace your own personality and personal style and go with it on your wedding day too. After all, the main idea here is to shine and still reflect who you are – so don’t sway too far away from your own personal style.
  • You don’t have to wear everything. Just because some brides wear tiaras, it doesn’t mean you want one too. And just because other brides wear both necklaces and earrings, it doesn’t mean you have to do too. Pick the category of accessories that truly represents you and your style – because, as mentioned above, this is one of the absolute basics of a wedding style that embraces you.
  • Your neckline matters. The wedding dress’ neckline and your jewelry should complement each other, not make it look like you just have too much going on with your entire bridal look. For instance, a sweetheart neckline will go really well with a dainty necklace, a straight neckline can go perfectly with a statement necklace, and a high-neck neckline will probably need no necklace (and a very dainty pair of earrings).
  • You don’t have to spend a fortune. Really, you don’t. Of course, you can invest in jewelry and accessories you will wear both on your wedding day and beyond that – but even so, if you just want something luxurious and pretty for your Big Day, you can always go for gently used pieces or even rental pieces.

How to Find the Best Vintage Wedding Dress?

Sunday, March 24th, 2019

Buying a vintage wedding dress is an amazing idea – and from many points of view, as you will read later on.

Why would you do it? And maybe even more importantly, how to make sure you do it right?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Start with the right mindset. A lot of brides associate vintage wedding dresses with budget savings – but that’s not entirely true. Sure, there might be steals here and there – but a good vintage wedding dress will most likely cost a bit more than a new one. Why? Because it’s like good wine: the longer it stays beautiful and sophisticated, the more valuable it is. On the other hand, however, it is important to note that if you decide to resell the dress, you will almost definitely get an equal price to what you paid for it – if not more, actually.
  • Do buy in person. There are a million reasons to do this. For starters, you want to be able to see the dress in person, you want to touch it, and ultimately, you want to put it on as well. Even more, seeing the dress in person allows you to better assess whether or not it is a true vintage designer piece or not.
  • Know how to distinguish between the different decades. Like good wines, older gowns are more expensive – so it’s important for you to be able to determine what decade your dress pertains to. This becomes even more important if you are keen on having a wedding inspired by a particular decade – such as the 60s, the 80s, or even the Roaring Twenties.
  • Keep your options open. We know you are set on wearing a specific type of dress at your wedding. But one of the main ways to make sure you wear a gown that truly fits you is to be open minded, actually – especially when it comes to vintage dresses, where options tend to be a bit more limiting and where you need to keep an eye open to spot that one gown that makes you feel fantastic.

4 Easy Ways to Save Money on the Big Day

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

Most people dance around this, but we like to tell it like it is: weddings can cost a lot of money. The dress, the venue, the décor, the cake – they can all add up to sums of money you might not have even considered before you started actually planning the Big Day.


Under these circumstances, it makes perfect sense that you want to save money anywhere you can on your wedding – and even more than that, you want to save money and make sure you still have the wedding of your dreams.


What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind in this respect? Here they are:

  • Consider a mid-week or daytime wedding. The more “offseason” and the farther away from Saturday evening your wedding is, the more likely it is that you will score better deals in terms of the venue, the décor, the food, and so on. The reason this happens is because vendors are less busy on these days and times of the day, so it is likely that they will be happy to offer you a discount.

  • Opt for simple greenery. Not only is this a really, really popular wedding décor element right now, but simple greenery can also be absolutely stunning in terms of how it makes a wedding look. Even more, greenery is the kind of décor element that can really save you a lot of money, as it is frequently much less expensive than actual blooms.

  • Skip the favors. Truth be told, nobody will even notice they’re not there. Sure, showing guests your appreciation is really nice, but most people don’t actually care about the nicely wrapped cookies and the fridge magnets with your engagement photo on them. If you want to, turn your candy bar into a “favor bar” by offering people the option to pack away some of the goodies.

  • Consider rental and slightly used décor and accessories. You might not want to do this with your wedding dress (and that’s totally fine), but you can still do it with your décor and with your jewelry. Why spend a ton of money on something that will only be worn or used once, when you can save the money (and maybe add it to your honeymoon fund)?

How to Personalize Your Wedding Look

Sunday, March 10th, 2019

Your wedding look is about more than just the dress, the hairdo, or the flowers you hold in your hand walking down the aisle towards the two most romantic words of your life: I Do.

It’s about who you are, the message you want to send out, the statement you want to make, the memories you want to create. It is about you and your love story.

How to personalize your wedding look, though?

What are some elements to include in your bridal look to make it truly special?

  • Look beyond the price tag of the dress. It’s not about how much you pay for the dress – it is about how it embraces your personality. For some, this might be a very expensive designer dress that has just been presented on the world’s runways. For others, it might be the dress your mother wore on her wedding day or a simple white dress you bought from an evening gown store in the mall. It’s all about who you are and what you want to reflect with your bridal look.
  • Bring in a touch of sentimentalism. This could be given by the fact that you have chosen to wear your mother’s dress, or maybe just the veil. Maybe you took a little piece of her dress to use it as a bridal bouquet wrap. Or maybe you used your father’s tie for that. Maybe you sew your mom’s and your grandmother’s name on the inside of the dress. Or maybe you wrote a message from your dad on the soles of your shoes. It could be anything – as long as it brings a touch of meaning into your bridal look, it will be perfect.
  • The accessories matter. Don’t let yourself trapped into the trends when it comes to the accessories you want to wear for your wedding day. You need accessories that really speak about you – and this might be a really opulent clutch purse or a pair of stunning stud earrings. Whatever it is, be sure it suits you!

With us on your side, you will look nothing less than fabulous on your wedding day – and all for a modest price that won’t break the bank!

Want to Lose Weight before the Wedding? Here Are Some Tips!

Sunday, March 3rd, 2019

Your wedding day is such a special moment in your life – so it’s really easy to understand why you want to look at your very best. If weight loss is among your bridal look goals, though, you want to make sure you do this the right way – because, as you will see, it’s the only feasible way.

What are the crucial tips to keep in mind when you want to lose weight as a future bride? Read on and find out more.

  • Don’t rush. Yes, your wedding is your final weight loss goal – but rushing into losing weight in a very short amount of time is completely unhealthy. You are already going through a lot with the wedding and the planning – don’t put even more stress on your body and on your mind by trying to lose weight on fast forward.
  • Work out. This is not just for the wedding or for the weight loss. This is for YOU. Working out will not only help you shed those extra pounds, but it will also help you focus better, it will help you fight the wedding planning stress, and it will help you be happier in general. In the end, your wedding planning is a journey – and working out will definitely help make this better!
  • Eat healthy fats. Contrary to the popular belief, fats are not an enemy (and no, carbs aren’t either as long as they are complex and release energy slowly). Good fats (like salmon, avocado, and olive oil) are excellent for weight loss. Plus, they will help you get that shiny hair and skin all brides want on their wedding day!
  • Accept your beauty. Every woman is beautiful, no matter the size or shape. Love yourself as you are now and learn to love yourself on the way to success as well. It’s truly key to losing and maintaining the weight. But more importantly, it’s essential to being happy. Be kind to yourself – you are absolutely stunning anyway you are!
