Happy Friday Y’all!
The weekend is at our fingertips, and a lot of us might be dreaming about the beach!
Who doesn’t love a beach wedding? There are many options when it comes finding the perfect location for a wedding, and the beach is definitely one of the most popular. Because the natural setting of a beach is one that’s very alluring – the sound of waves gently coming onto shore, the feel of a gentle sea breeze, seeing a beautiful sunrise or sunset – many soon to be married couples see a beach wedding as one that’s very romantic.
Besides being romantic, there are other advantages to choosing a beach wedding. The first involves saving a lot of time decorating, as Mother Nature has already created the perfect wedding background. Although, it’s easy to add in a few additional elements of decoration throughout the venue, like flowers and tiny white lights that can really add to the overall ambiance.
A second advantage? A beach wedding tends to cost less due to the more casual outside environment. Any money being saved by having a wedding on the beach can now be used for other expenses, like the honeymoon or even a down payment on a house.
A third advantage is the ability for a couple to get married in a truly unique setting. It’s no longer necessary to follow traditional wedding rules, which often includes getting married in a church or a local public venue. Soon to be married couples are now encouraged to choose their own special wedding venues, with a romantic beach wedding being a great choice.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Monday Y’all,
My final Designing Your Wedding Day tip from the interview I did with Bridal Bar Radio is HAVE FUN!
Every couple needs to understand that there’s always a possibility that the day won’t go as perfectly as planned, and that’s okay! Just enjoy the process and you’re sure to have the best wedding day ever, which is what’s really important, right?
How did you choose your wedding design? What motivated you?
Because lighting can have one of the biggest influences on the overlook look and feel of a wedding, be sure that you pay a lot of attention to getting lights that you feel are going to best represent the day.
Although using natural light is a beautiful way to light a wedding, it’s not always available. A few fun options include (and remember, there are no rules here!), candles placed in (various sizes of) mason jars, string lights (they can virtually wrap around anything), and paper lanterns.
Tip #5 will be available next week, so don’t forget to check in.
An important element to get right for your special day is the dining!
If you’re leaning towards a more formal wedding, then serving your guests at their table may be best. If you’re thinking about creating a more casual eating atmosphere, then family style is definitely worth looking further into.
Tip: If you’re low on table space, you can always add a few risers with organic flower arrangements underneath. This is a great way to display family style food platters and save room for everything else that needs to stay on the table.

My second tip when designing your wedding day is to always go to the dress as a starting point.
Because a wedding dress often tends to be very distinctive in its design, it can be the perfect inspiration that can help set the overall tone of the entire wedding. The bride should also rip out things that catch her eye in wedding magazines so she can put them all together to on a poster board in order to start forming a visual connection between the different elements.
How will your wedding dress influence the design aspects of your wedding?
Be sure to check in tomorrow for Tip #3!
Springtime wedding season is fast approaching and because every newly engaged couple wants their wedding day to be special, it’s important for them to design it in any way that will make them happy. And since there are only a million different ways to design a wedding, I thought it would be a good idea to mention some of the more important things to think about when it comes to designing a wedding that will perfectly fit a bride and groom’s style.
I simply ask that you keep in mind when reading the tips below that there really are no rules that are set in stone when it comes to designing your wedding day. In fact, I think the most important thing for couples to remember is to have fun. It is your wedding day after all!
Tip #1: Be Unique, or Not! Don’t feel pressured to follow trends, and instead go with what makes you happy and represents who you are as a couple. If there’s currently a trend that really speaks to you, then be sure that you explore it further as it could be exactly what you’ve been looking for, or could spark a new idea. And thinking outside the box is always a good idea so you can put your own unique spin on it.
Be sure to check back in as I post a new tip each day this week from my interview on Bridal Bar Radio!
Were you one of the 124 million people currently living in the US who didn’t spend Valentine’s Day with a significant other? As you can see, you’re definitely not alone! Instead of feeling left out when a holiday hits, why not look into throwing your own Singles Party? All you have to do is call up all of your single friends and invite them over so you can all enjoy a party that focuses on the joys of being single. Even though you haven’t found ‘the one’ yet, you can still have fun partying on holidays with all of your single friends.
And just think about all of the money you’ll save by not buying the customary roses and candy, or expensive candlelit dinners. No longer do you have to feel left out of this traditional couples holiday because you happen to be single at this particular time. Instead, you can always choose to throw a Valentine’s Day Singles Party that rocks and know that it doesn’t have to be a Valentine’s Day Singles Party, as any holiday party will do when it comes to hosting a Singles Party.
Because relationships and love often tend to be so overrated, those who are single are often looking to attend a party that’s exclusively for singles. Be sure to check out the 5 ways that you can throw a Singles Party on Valentine’s Day, or any holiday for that matter, in my post on Cupid’s Pulse, that will make the night one to remember.
