COLOR YOUR WORLD: From flowers to favors
Three wildly creative wedding palettes filled with bright ideas
Something Blue – When considering color, go for it! If you’re only focused on using it for big things, like the bridesmaids’ dresses or the flowers and cake, it will look like random pops of color thrown in. It won’t look cohesive.
Case in point with one recent NJ wedding which featured an abundance of turquoise and emerald – colors chosen because they so perfectly matched the historic grounds of the local museum and gardens where the intimate ceremony took place.
KEEPING WEDDING COSTS UNDER CONTROL: Money Saving Strategies
Your venue: Elegant options abound but costs vary significantly. Here are some suggestions to consider before you start scouting locations so you can get more for your money.
The venues that offer the best value are dedicated event spaces, like hotels and banquet halls (generally speaking, sites with prescribed wedding packages). This is because many services you would otherwise need to hire come included, and bundling them together makes your dollar go farther.
When shopping around for a venue the number one thing is to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples.
Short and sweet goes alot farther than long and drawn out.
Your ceremony should reflect who you are and how you feel. Say this authentically and comfortably as possible. Twenty minutes is usually plenty of time. Going over thirty minutes normally starts to get your guests looking at their wristwatches.
The perfect wedding kiss is not just between the bride and groom at the end of the ceremony. Celebrating your love during your marriage ceremony is best presented in a simple, timely manner.
As the acronym states, Keep it simple stupid. (K.I.S.S.)
