Wedding Decoration

Turn your wedding venue into a modern and stylish area. Red compliments back in a way you could never think of. In a glass bowl sprinkle red rose petals, place a few white floating candles in the bowl, and hang black streamers and laces along the bowl. Use the magic of red and back by using the colors as backdrop decoration. How ‘bout black chair covers with red bows? Wedding cakes are equally important as any other elements of the day. Therefore an extra care must be taken to decorate the cake table. Black laces, red drapes, and white candles would create the boldest look on your wedding.

Wedding dress

When it comes to wedding gowns, the brides have mostly stuck to whites, while the groom have often chosen a black suit. This time, when you have taken a bold step to decorate the venue in red and black, go for a red wedding gown, with a black stiletto. Accessorize in black pearl necklace and hair pieces. The bride had never looked so ravishing before. To intensify the wedding theme, get a black tuxedo for your partner. The bridesmaids should be dressed up in a little subdued manner hence white, off-white or cream-white gowns with red and black laces and accessories are just ideal for them.

Wedding flower

Wedding is never complete without fresh flowers. It is the most integral part of the entire ceremony. Starting from venue decoration, to cake and bridal bouquet, flowers add an extra magnificence to the whole affair. When your wedding theme is red and black go it is ideal to stick to the traditional red roses. Combine black iris or black tulips with blood red roses for the bride’s bouquet. For table decorations yellow, orange and red gerberas can be placed on a glass vase.

Invitation cards

Your Fabulous Small Budget Wedding

 Your Fabulous Small Budget Wedding

Thinking of a fairy tale wedding automatically makes people imagine thousands of dollars slipping out of their bank accounts. For most, a small budget wedding means nothing close to a lavish affair. But, if you have a limited budget and still want the most special day of your life to be filled with sumptuousness, then a little planning is all you need to make your D-day memorable.

1.     Stick to your budget – One mantra is to set a budget and stick to it at any cost.

2.     Involve friends and family – Friends and family members always feel special when they are assigned tasks for a special day. So, why not rope them for various tasks! Ask someone to click pictures, while a few others can help with decorations/food preparations. Make small teams to make sure that everything comes out as planned.

3.     Consider an off season wedding – An off season wedding will automatically cut down your wedding costs. This is the time when most of things are offered at a discounted rate. If you wish to cut costs further, then a wedding scheduled before lunch will be a perfect idea.

4.     Prepare wedding invitations and favors at home – Why not get creative and make wedding invitations and wedding favors at home rather than spending a huge amount on them? There are endless ideas available on the internet, which will help you come up with a customized invitation and eye-appealing favors.

5.     Invite limited people – A long list of guests means a heavy budget. Come up with a list and send invitations to only close friends and family members.

6.      Cut down on that designer wedding gown – Buying a designer wedding dress can be any bride’s dream, but is definitely an unnecessary wedding cost. Instead of designer houses, exploit sources like eBay where you can find hundreds of stylish yet cheaper options. Renting a wedding dress is another option, which won’t burn a hole in your pocket.

7.     Cut out on alcohol – Serve sparkling wine or non-alcoholic drinks, instead of expensive liquor or wine.

A small budget wedding can be equally special, mesmerizing and impressive. After all, money is not the only thing that can buy happiness!

Sometimes you have to give up on Grumpy Guests

Sometimes you have to give up on grumpy guests

If you’re faced with a rude guest, try not to take it personally. There are a number of reasons why they may be attacking you and/or your designs. As long as your clients are pleased with your work, don’t let the temperamental guest throw you off your game.

Always take the time to listen to the guest’s complaint, and then do your best to find a solution. If you’ve come prepared with additional fresh flowers, you’ll be prepared to fix the problem if a guest is complaining about wilting flowers. Make it known to the guest that you are prepared to fix it. If they’re not willing to accept a solution and choose to continue criticizing you and your work, they’re just trying to make a scene. Don’t let it get to you.

A rude guest may have his or her own issues and end up taking it out on you. At this point, you just have to give up and walk away. Once, I had the misfortune of encountering a rude bridesmaid who would not stop complaining about my flowers, even after I had replaced a wilting flower with some fresh ones. It turns out she was jealous of her friend who was getting married.

You may be tempted to voice your true feelings about a rude guest who is criticizing you and your work, but that may not be the best idea in the midst of your clients’ celebration. Remember, you want to deliver optimal service to your clients and their guests.

How would you handle rude guests?

 

Chair Covers or NO Chair Covers….

Chair Covers or NO Chair Covers….

Are you having trouble deciding whether to cover your chairs , or to leave them bare? If you’re considering covering your chairs , will you opt for neutral colours or bold, vibrant colours? Do you prefer patterns? Have you considered texture? Some may think white chair covers are boring, but have you considered adding texture by experimenting with fabrics? Or have you thought about different shades of white? Other details can also add personality to an otherwise plain white chair cover. You can create a unique look with the right chair covers.

You may think of these as added expenses, but keep reading to find out some great ways to save when shopping for chair covers !

Have you thought about checking out rental options? You may be able to cut costs by renting your  chair covers.

Another way to save is to use the venue’s basic chair covers and personalize them by adding a fun chair Sashes, which you can rent or purchase. This way you only need to pay for the chair sashes, which tend to be less expensive than full tablecloths. Alternatively, you can create your own, truly personalized runners using fabric or flowers.

If you’re considering full chair covers, you can always save by going with a chair cap instead. They will create the same visual impact and desired effect in the overall look of the venue, but at a fraction of the cost. Or, skip the chair covers all together and go for a decorated chair look using ribbons or flowers.

Covering tables and chairs doesn’t necessarily mean spending more! Cut costs and get creative with covers!

The Top 10 Tips for Planning the Perfect Wedding

The Top 10 Tips for Planning the Perfect Wedding

Everyone can make mistakes when trying to plan the perfect wedding. Follow these foolproof tips to avoid unnecessary fumbles during the wedding planning process.

1. The first impression you make on your guests will set the tone for the entire wedding. That’s why it’s so important to perfect your wedding invitations! As quick and convenient email may be, do you really want to send your wedding invitations by email? Dedicate some time to creating beautiful wedding invitations to announce the magical day that awaits your guests. Plus, a lot of people save invitations as a reminder with all of the event details, and an email can easily get lost in an overflowing inbox by the time the big day arrives.

2. As you can imagine, no one wants to be rushing around during the last hour leading up to the wedding. The last thing you want to be doing when guests start to arrive is finishing up the wedding installation. Leave yourself extra time to ensure sufficient time to complete the installation. Some guests are bound to arrive early, and you wouldn’t want to be seen rushing and cleaning up as guests filter in.

3. The wedding ceremony should begin on time. What will your guests think when they have gone to the trouble of arriving on time, and the ceremony begins significantly later than the time you had listed on the invitation?

4. Of course wedding flowers are an important aspect of the wedding decor, but it is also important to keep in mind that they should be in full bloom on the day of the big event. This can easily be overlooked, so be sure to take the time and make the effort to ensure your flowers are nurtured properly and are ready to be in the spotlight.

5. It’s one thing if your flowers aren’t quite in full bloom yet, but it’s a completely different story if the flowers are already beginning to wilt or turn brown. Be prepared for the worst-case scenario and order some additional fresh flowers for back up. Remember, your guests will be sitting around the centerpiece at their table all night. What would you think if you were staring at a wilting, brown centerpiece? Don’t think of this tip as obsessive compulsive, but it wouldn’t hurt to check each centerpiece and arrangement for flowers that need to be replaced before the event gets started. Replace any sad looking flowers with the fresh back up flowers you remembered to order.

6. You want your guests to enjoy the food and catering at any event. You already know you’ll need to do your homework and serve the best food possible. However, another thing you should keep in mind is the actual serving of each dish. Never serve plated food before guests are seated. They’ll be wondering how long it’s been sitting out. You should always have food servced once guests are seated, and try to have everyone served in a timely manner so everyone can dig in sooner. If you’re going for the buffet approach, try to do what you can to prevent long lines.

7. You may have managed to get your favourite band/DJ to play at your event, but be sure to continue to manage the music during the event. If the music is too loud, your guests won’t be able to enjoy the music or hear eachother speak. Be concious of the volume, otherwise you may lose a few guests as the evening of unbearably loud music progresses.

8. Event lighting shouldn’t be too bright. It should be intimate and romantic. You don’t want to find out that a spotlight was blinding half of your guests the entire evening. On the other hand, some people opt to use candles instead of bright lights, but beware: the heat may become overwhelming.

9. Timing is everything. Every step of the wedding should be timed in order to maintain organization and an appropriate flow of events. Things may not always fall exactly into place, but having a realistic plan going in will make a big difference. If something changes last minute, don’t sweat it! You’ll need to stay calm and make sure things get back on schedule and go smoothly moving forward.

10. Be sure to check in with your clients throughout the evening. It is up to you to diffuse feelings of anxiety and nervousness and remind them to enjoy their party. If they’re too preoccupied with worry, they’ll forget to enjoy themselves.

Remember, there’s no such thing as perfection, but if you follow these 10 tips to ensure an optimal event experience for everyone involved, the rest will be a piece of cake!

 

Do Not Delay Pay Day

Do Not Delay Pay Day

 

To ensure that you are paid in full and on time, discuss the details pertaining to payment     well in advance. It’s a good idea to collect payment prior to the actual event. If possible, request for payment to be made no later than two weeks prior to the event. Better yet, collect a month before the event takes place.

Apparently there are vendors out there who allow their clients to pay after their event. Realistically, you don’t want to be chasing after them, and they won’t want to be thinking about the bill on the day of their wedding or during their honeymoon. The sooner the bill is settled, the sooner you can all move on.

If a client isn’t able to make the full payment on time, the vendor should cancel.

If clients are permitted to pay after the event has ended, what will motivate them to complete their payments? By handling the hassle of payment prior to the event, you will all be able to put your mind at ease and be able to actually enjoy the event.

If you encounter a situation where your clients are not able to pay on time, maybe you could set up a payment plan. This will ensure your client has time to make payments toward the bill, and that you ultimately receive full payment.

Do not commit to commissions!

Do not commit to commissions!

While it may seem like a dated concept, some wedding planners and vendors are still paying and receiving commisions. Be sure to have this discussion ahead of time. It wouldn’t hurt to ask for documentation confirming that there will not be any commissions charge applied. Keep in mind: it is the client who will wind up covering this added expense. While planning your dream wedding on a limited budget, the last thing you need is your planner dipping into your funds for themselves.

It is quite common for planners and vendors to charge commissions, and it is unfortunate because weddings are expensive enough as it is. If you have saved $100,000 to spend on your wedding, and your planner gets 15%, he/she makes an additional $15,000 of profit, leaving you with an $85,000 wedding.

In an attempt to deter planners from charging commissions, we need to educate clients. Request to have the vendors agree, in writing, that they will NOT be receiving any commisions behind your backs. Do your research when hiring a planner, and ask questions throughout the planning process. You will never know the answers to the questions you don’t ask. After all, it’s your hard-earned money.
