Choosing a wedding venue is one of the first and most important things related to wedding planning. After all, this choice will influence a lot of other parts of the wedding –and it is highly important that you think things through before you strike a deal with anyone.

To help you decide on the best option, we have gathered some of the most amazing and hauntingly beautiful wedding venues out there –so read on if you want to find out more and inspire yourself.

  • A tree house. That’s right, you can transform a large tree house into an ideal, childish and rustic wedding venue for a smaller wedding. Treehouse Point in Issaquah, WA is one of the examples out there so if you are considering the option, make sure to check it out.
  • City Hall. Some couples run away from city halls, thinking that they are dull and that they have no elegance whatsoever. If you think this as well, you should definitely check with the San Francisco City Hall because it’s a stunning option for any kind of wedding. A true piece of artwork, this building will most likely change your mind when it comes to planning your wedding in a City Hall.
  • On the waterfront. Add a touch of romanticism and grace to your wedding by picking a venue that’s near a lake. For instance, The Boathouse in Prospect Park will provide you with an elegant, unforgettable wedding venue perfect for a fairy tale-like wedding.

Patriotism and marriage are two of the basic concepts that lie at the very foundation of modern society. Why wouldn’t you want to bring them together in an unforgettable 4th of July-themed wedding? Here are some wonderful ideas to inspire you in creating a patriotic wedding all guests will definitely love attending:

  • American-colored ribbons. Blue, white and red ribbons can be used to decorate a variety of objects at your wedding. From the ceremony canopy to the seats at the reception, even the simplest items can be turned into “patriotic”symbols with the help of some ribbons.
  • The American flag as the backdrop. What other better way to show how much you love your country other than using its colors as a backdrop to the big “I Do”? Simple, beautiful and heart-warming, this is an idea that can be used with any type of wedding –be it at the City Hall or in the Great American Outdoors.
  • American colors-inspired invitations. You don’t have to put the American flag on your wedding invitations –but you can create some designs that bring together the three beautiful colors we have all grown to love so much: white, blue and red.
  • American colors-inspired bridesmaids. Pick white-blue-red dresses for your bridesmaids and they will look absolutely beautiful wearing them. Since it will be full summer by the time the wedding day approaches, short bridesmaids’dresses with a 60s-inspired design will work more than perfectly.

There’s something almost magical about beach weddings that makes people return to the idea every single summer. The romantic waves, the fresh air and the timelessness of the entire atmosphere can be more than enchanting.

If you plan on having a beach wedding too and if you are looking for inspiration for the Big Day, make sure to read on. We have gathered some of the very best ideas out there –and you will definitely love them all:

  • Starfish. What could be cuter and more beach-like than starfish? You can use these little “products”of the ocean in almost every part of your wedding. Include them in your bouquet and in your groom’s boutonniere for a touch of fun and uniqueness, create marvelous centerpieces with them and don’t forget to add one or two on the wedding cake as well!
  • Bridesmaids. Dress up your bridesmaids for the beach. Pick a simple, airy and summery dress for your bridesmaids and they will be more than grateful. Not only will they find this less expensive, but they will be able to wear these gowns on other occasions too. Moreover, if you want a special accessory for your special ladies (and if you want to find a beach-like alternative to the classic bouquets), fun-colored parasols are a great idea.
  • Leave shoes at home. Beach weddings are perfect if you have always dreamed of walking down the aisle without wearing uncomfortable shoes. Accessorize a short, summery wedding dress with a pair of flip flops or go all-barefoot and “dress”up your feet with bracelets, toe rings and Indian-inspired “tattoos”. Even more, don’t forget to provide your guests with their own pair of flip flops too!

Hiring a wedding planner has become much more common these days. However, if you feel that this would put your budget on a strain, you should know that you can be your very own wedding plannertoo. How to do this? Here are some simple steps you can follow:

  • The internet is your best friends. If you have no idea where to start with your wedding planning or if you are searching for information on how to plan every single minute detail of the Big Day, the internet is there for you. Wedding site directories, Pinterest, eBooks –you name it and the online world will offer it to you on a plate. Even more than that, it will most often offer them for free, so that you can really reap all the advantages of planning the wedding on your own.
  • Write everything down. Stick-it notes and notebooks will become your most used tools (aside from the internet, of course). It is very likely that you will fill in full notebooks with all the ideas you have. That’s perfectly fine. In fact, you are more than recommended to carry around a small notebook when you visit vendors and even on a daily basis (so that you can jot down any idea that may come along the way).
  • Ask for help. Your future spouse, your mother, your mother-in-law, your bridesmaids –they will all be there for you and they will be more than happy to lend a helpful hand. Distribute the tasks among them and make sure that you give them “instructions”as well. This way, you will get everything done in time and in a flawless way too.

Planning a wedding on your own is possible, sure. However, if you feel that you need help with the entire wedding planning process (or even to just parts of it), do not hesitate to contact It’s All About Love. We can help you plan your Big Day and stick to your budget too! Come visit us and learn more about our wedding planning services!
