Choosing Wedding Colors

Choosing wedding colors can seem like a huge, daunting task. I’m telling you, though, it doesn’t have to be. You have to remind yourself that weddings are about you and your significant other and what you like and want. Sure, you may want to take into consideration the time of the year when you are getting married when it comes to picking your colors, but ultimately, it is up to you.

I would suggest going with something timeless. Something you can look back on in 20 years and still like and appreciate. Of course fashions will come and go with wedding dresses, but the colors you pick can help create that classic, fun, spunky, or timeless look that you are going for. Whatever you do decide, make sure that you absolutely love your wedding colors!

This is your big day and you can’t let other’s opinions get in the way. Now I’m not saying to throw everyone’s advice out the window, but take your time, see some options, and choose what is ultimately right for you!

Weddings – The Personal Touch

Up until the late 1960s, weddings were pretty much traditional events. With the social revolution of the 60s, people became more interested in self-expression. That is a trend that has taken root in today’s world of romance.

Weddings are a great way for a couple to express where they are in life. With couples waiting much longer to marry<, the cost of weddings is often falling more on the couple and lass on the parents. Couples are planning weddings that are more personal and less about impressing the folks.

The venues are often creative, sometimes outrageous. The nuptials have much more of a party feel and less of a ceremonial event. Some weddings are reflective of the couples lifestyle and hobbies like getting married while skydiving, while others are simple ceremonies with a big party afterwards. Some couple choose to avoid the hassles and simply elope and some still cling to tradition and the fairytale event.

A themed wedding such as a Luau are also becoming more and more popular. Much more fun and celebratory than a church and forced fed catered reception an informal meal and party at the beach with full bar be que are often much more memorable as well, and the bride is often more relaxed and able to be with her guests and family in a more comfortable setting.

This much is evident: Cookie cutter weddings are becoming a thing of the past.

Wedding Presents for Bridesmaids

Brides have been giving wedding presents to their bridesmaids for as long as anyone can remember. This is a tradition that has been around and will continue to be around for eternity. There are no real limits to the types of presents that are given to bridesmaids, however the types of presents for bridesmaids typically falls into the category of jewelry when given.

Brides have enjoyed giving jewelry to bridesmaids for quite some time now. Once again, there are no limits to the type of presents for bridesmaids given but when jewelry is given, it tends to generally fall into the category of ear rings. No matter what the are given, the only thing that really matters is that the tradition lives on.

The reason behind the gift is more of a thank you than anything else. It is to say thank you for being a part of this special day and thank you for being special in my life. Wedding presents for bridesmaids will continue to be given forever!

Wedding Food

One of the most important aspects of any wedding is the food that will be served. Whether it is a firehouse that is rented out to hold the reception, or at the Harvard Club of Harvard University, in Boston Massachusetts, the food served during a wedding reception will be remembered and talked about well after the wedding day is over and the couple are home from their honeymoon.

One thing new that may not have been seen much in the past is the idea of holding a barbecue for a wedding reception, as grilling is one way to prepare a lot of food in a short time. It is very simple to cook a variety of different meats, poultry, fish to feed a large group of guests.

Or if there is enough time a wedding reception with a luau theme would be very different. A full roast pig, with a variety of barbecue sauces for guests to choose from, baked beans, corn on the cob can be grilled as well. A nice selection of cold salads makes it easy to serve a lot of people quickly and efficiently as well.

No matter what food you decide to serve, be sure to ensure the food is quality and fresh, for a memorable day.

Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations capture a moment of your special day. Unique invitations are used to express what your day means to you. Invitations can be created in many different styles. You can use a favorite photo or include a wedding theme.

They can be printed on gloss, matted, or completely recycled paper, set to a color scheme, or contain a unique design. Envelopes can be customized to match any invitation. Keep in mind that these invitations can be conveniently ordered online, purchased in stores, or you can set a day for a do-it-yourself project.

If you decide the DIY method, gather your wedding party and make a day of it. A determined bride and her party combined with a bottle of wine, and a wedding party can accomplish anything they set their minds to! When inviting family and friends to the big day, you start with an invitation. Make it your own for this beautiful day!

Titanium Bracelets

Titanium bracelets are striking pieces of jewelry that are very well suited to a man’s style and taste. They reflect the steely, rugged, character of a man, extremely strong yet lightweight when worn the bracelets make a statement weather worn with jeans and a tee or dressed to the nines in a suit.

Modern, bold, unique, manly, these bracelets are the perfect match to our men’s titanium wedding bands and rings as well as our collection of men’s chains made of titanium as well.

With the high cost of gold, silver, and platinum, titanium are also easy on the wallet and purse when compared to the more precious medals often used to make jewelry that will break easily when under pressure of moderate amounts.

Wedding Ring Resources

A wedding ring is often a ring of metal. Many people buy the old standbys platinum, silver, and gold, but the price of these metals has made buying a nice wedding band out of the reach of most people.

A new set of metal is now available to people everywhere and at a price that everyone, and we mean everyone can afford. And the most amazing thing about these rings is not how great they look, or how easy they are to afford, no the most amazing aspect is these rings are much more durable than their much higher priced relatives gold, silver, and platinum. Tungsten and Titanium are the new metals used to make great looking, fashionable rings, everyone loves.

Depending on the country a wedding ring is typically worn on the left or right hand ring finger. In the United States they were only worn by wives, but that practice began to change in the 20th century so both husband and wife word matching rings.

Fall Wedding Ideas

As summer begins to cool down and school will soon be back it is time to think of what can be one of the most memorable seasons for getting married, the Fall Wedding. Some are outdoors at a winery. These weddings are great as they are often very accommodating, a unique location sure to leave an impression on family, friends, and other various guests the bride and groom may or may not know well.

Fall weddings can be about the colors of the season, from the attire, to the flowers, to the color of the food, the colors of the bridesmaids, and the groomsmen. Even the decor can have a fall aspect to it. You can have a pate, pumpkin soup, and pumpkin pie as part of the wedding reception.

Another location that would be spectacular in fall for a wedding is a covered bridge. These rustic spots on roads no longer used, make a perfect background for a wedding. With the wood trusses and rough hewn sides they make an ideal back drop to wedding pictures or a video. Wedding dresses look particularly beautiful with a red covered bridge as the background.
