Personalize Your Destination Or Local Wedding

Perfectly matching bridal parties are becoming a thing of the past. Whether for traditional church weddings or for a destination wedding, modern day brides have developed an understanding that their bridal party can look fabulous with personalized looks that fit their style.

A recent trend has been mix matched colors of the same type of bridesmaid gown, this allows a uniformed look but allows each individual bridesmaid to wear a more flattering color. Another trend is the same color but in different styles of bridesmaid gown; allowing bridesmaids who are not comfortable in shorter dresses to choose from a slightly longer option while still achieving a uniform look. In addition to this mix match of colors and styles many modern brides are seeking bridesmaid looks that really can be worn again such as skirts and tops.

Recently Lena Dunham, from the Girls TV series, was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and the bride worked with Jenna Lyons who is the creative director and president of J. Crew. The bridesmaids were allowed to create personalized sequined skirts for the wedding.

For a destination wedding, many brides turn to a more relaxed beach themed bridal party. Brides are also providing their bridesmaids with customized jewelry that they can wear time and time again as well as decorative head bands or decorative hats to bring some diversity to the over-all look. A destination wedding planner will work with a bride to help her incorporate her individual style into her destination wedding.

Which is the Right Season for Your Wedding?

Choosing the right wedding season can open up a number of possibilities and activities suitable for the ceremony. If you have no specific date in mind, it is good to know what the advantages and disadvantages of every season are.



The spring season is considered to be a favorite among many as the weather gets warmer and flowers start to bloom. However, chances of rain are pretty high during spring, so you might consider celebrating your most special day of the year indoors. The best choice for the palette are earthy tones and March 20 – the Spring Equinox day – is one of the most preferable wedding days.



Summer days are ideal for outdoor activities but beware of the extreme climate. We think of rooftop patios, flowers in abundance, slushy margaritas, and acoustic guitar serenades when we envision a summer marriage. Here are some tips for summer weddings: Bright colorful flowers can make the ceremony livelier; and while arranging the outdoor activities, try giving the guests handheld fans or holding parasols to make them feel more comfortable in the hot climate.




During the fall, nature becomes ideal by changing its green leaves to orange, gold, and red ones. There’s also that cool breeze throughout the day. With bright orange pumpkins, yellow sunflowers, and gold and ruby red flowers everywhere, you will experience an unforgettable wedding. While arranging outdoor parties and activities, just keep in mind that the weather can be unpredictable.



Winter is an unexplored season due to its snowy themes and holidays, but it is a good choice for people who want to include some Christmas themes in their marriage. Interestingly enough, you will find many discounts concerning rentals of marriage halls and other associated expenses, due to the fact that it is an “off-season”. Also, you can make sure maximum guests are attending the ceremony by choosing any day next to the famous holidays in the season (everybody has days off during these periods, so they won’t have a reason not to attend).

How To Pack for Your Destination Wedding and Honeymoon

Are you delighted to be planning your very own destination wedding and honeymoon? As the day draws near you may be wondering how you should pack for such a momentous occasion. Do not fear- we have put together a short list to help you pack for your big events.

Make a List
Make a list of everything you would like to take with you. Write down everything from the most obvious to the most subtle of items. It may be pretty hard to forget your dress or suit, but it is surprisingly easy to forget those special earrings or tie tacks if you haven’t written them down. Once you have made the list, then layout your items and double check that you have everything.

Protect the Wedding Attire
This is arguably the most important outfit of your entire life. There is nothing worse than getting to your destination only to find that something has spilled onto your suit or gown. Make sure that you have multiple layers of protection. You may wish to stuff the bodice with acid-free tissue paper, keep dryer sheets in the sleeves or bodice, and seal your outfit into a waterproof, protective garment bag.

Be Prepared For It All
You never know what you will encounter while traveling. Pack the extra bobby pins, nail polish, jewelry, travel-sized medical kit, and a needle and thread. Think of everything that is important to you and then pack extra of everything you can think of. You should assume that literally anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Be prepared.

Plan Your Clothing Carefully

You know that your wedding attire is the most important outfit, but what other outfits must you have? Do you need a new outfit for every day of your honeymoon or can you survive with wearing a dress more than once? Can you mix and match tops and bottoms to save on the number of outfits that you have to pack? You should make sure to pack everything that you need, but not more clothing than you need. Save that space for important souvenirs or keepsakes from your special day.
