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!

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

When it comes to pulling together the perfect wedding look, it’s all about the details. Little things can determine whether or not your look comes together into something harmonious. One thing you might not have thought about yet—do you know how to pair your wedding gown’s neckline with your hairdo? If not, have no fear, we have some tips for you.

  • Strapless wedding dresses work with almost anything. Ideally, you want to create balance between the bare shoulders (and bare back) and leave your hair down. However, depending on how intricate the design of the bodice is, you might also want to pull your hair up – or leave it in a half-up half-down hairdo. Strapless wedding gowns are among the most versatile options in terms of the hairdos they can work with, so you’ve got lots of options here!
  • Off the shoulder wedding gowns look absolutely elegant and romantic. However, you have to pay attention to them because leaving your hair completely down might make you feel like too much is happening around your shoulders. You can either pull your hair up in romantic updos (e.g. a subtly braided updo with a few floating curls), or you can leave it swept to the side (a side braid, a side bun, or even a side pony tail, for example). However you decide to pull it back, leaving your shoulders and décolletage open and on display works best with this style of bodice.
  • Boat neck wedding dresses are really sophisticated and elegant, and the key here lies in keeping your hair away from the base of the neck, where the boat neckline starts. There are a million lovely ways to pull your hair up – and, depending on the actual design of the dress, you can land on something that’s either very romantic, like a messy bun with a few curls escaping, or very polished, like a clean chignon.
  • V-necks wedding gowns are all about delicacy and femininity, so the hairstyle should suit that vibe. Leaving your hair down or pulling it in a curled half-up half-down hairdo are both popular options. You can also go for an oversized side bun, or, if the dress allows for it, a slightly messy side braid, which will look really romantic and feminine with a more casual, rustic-chic wedding dress.
