Say ‘No’ To The Cake!

This may sound a little controversial, but how many weddings have you attended where you have seen the happy couple cut the cake, have a bite and then nothing? Or you have taken a slice home and it wasn’t what you expected? Many couples are now steering away from the traditional cake and having a dessert bar. Whether you want to make it decadent, tap into family culture, or go for all-time retro favourites, this option can make it more personal for the bride and groom and a hit for guests!

Always Be Extra!

Consider preparing a second dress based on your wedding gown style. For ballgown, trumpet, or fit-and-flare designs, manoeuvring around the reception venue can be challenging. A second outfit allows brides to switch to a more relaxed attire, ideal for dancing and enjoying the festivities throughout the night.

High Heel Hell

While high heels undoubtedly exude elegance, the discomfort they bring becomes increasingly evident with prolonged wear. For guests opting for heels, consider offering flip-flops. This thoughtful gesture allows them to kick off their heels and revel in the festivities without the discomfort of blisters and pinched toes.

Pause For A Moment

Amidst the whirlwind of preparations and the inevitable hiccups, it’s common to overlook the importance of pausing to breathe and regroup. Increasingly, couples are opting for a brief getaway just before their wedding day. While jetting off to Europe might seem counterintuitive at such a crucial juncture, stepping back from the wedding hustle can provide valuable clarity and organization for the ceremony ahead.

Your Day Isn’t A Snapshot

In today’s digital age, we’re inundated with social media, influencers, and prevailing fads, all of which can render event planning daunting and bewildering. While you might be tempted to pursue the “#perfectwedding” showcasing the latest trends, it’s crucial to remember that you’re orchestrating a deeply personal celebration that should authentically reflect you and your partner’s personalities and values.
