Food is, of course, one of the most important parts of the wedding. If you want all of your guests to feel happy about the dishes you will serve at your wedding, make sure you take into consideration all dietary preferences. Here are some of the things you will want to keep in mind if you want everyone at your wedding to enjoy the dishes on the table:

  • Include some vegetarian dishes. If you know some of your guests prefer vegetarian food, you should definitely make sure to talk to your caterer about this. After all, the last thing you want it having a guest pass on the food simply because he/she doesn’t eat animal products. Including some vegetarian dishes will not be expensive and it can be done excellently with the help of a good caterer.
  • Include gluten-free and lactose-free dishes as well. A lot of people suffer from lactose or gluten intolerance –and serving them with such food would make them feel awful. Again, there are many options when it comes to such dishes and they don’t have to be overly expensive either!
  • Include non-seafood dishes and foods that don’t show risks for people with allergies. Some people are allergic to seafood, nuts and other types of food. If you know you will serve this kind of food at your wedding, make sure you inform your guests about it and that they have other alternatives too.

Spring is just a couple of weeks away –and together with it, a new wedding season will “open its gates”as well! If you plan on having a spring or summer wedding, you should definitely take into consideration the option of holding it outdoors. Why? Here are some of the main reasons many couples choose to go for a garden wedding:

  • They look absolutely amazing. Even with minimal décor, a garden wedding will naturally look very beautiful. Of course, bringing flower arrangements and centerpieces is necessary, but the “backdrop”surrounding your wedding will contribute a lot to creating that very special “wedding venue look”everyone appreciates so much.
  • They make for amazing pictures. If you want your wedding album to be stylish, full of positive vibes and to reflect the amazing emotions you went through on your Big Day, an outdoor wedding is a more than excellent choice. A creative professional photographer will be able to shoot some impressive pictures using the outdoor décor –and he/she will also be able to create a unique, well-balanced album as well.
  • Everyone will love the idea. After a long winter, enjoying some sunlight on the outdoors feels really great –and your guests will definitely agree to this as well. From children to adults, everyone will like having fun on the outdoors!
  • If you are worried that rainy weather may ruin your outdoor wedding, you should definitely know that there are many options when it comes to “backup plans”. From renting a wedding tent to renting a backup indoor venue, there are a lot of things you can do to make sure rain doesn’t stop you from having the time of your life on your wedding day.

Although weddings are generally seen as “formal”(and thus “serious”) events, the truth is that there’s nothing out there to stop you from having at least a bit of fun. Humor is always welcomed and if you want to “sprinkle”your Big Day with some smiles, check out with the following ideas –they will definitely inspire you to create something wonderful!

  • Fun cake toppers. Cutting the cake is one of the biggest moments of the night –so why not add a bit of humor to it? These days, you can find cake toppers featuring almost anything you want, from he-and-she puppies to brides “dragging”their grooms and to cartoon versions of yourselves as bride and groom!
  • Be  creative with your invitations/Save the Date cards. Forget about traditional wedding invitations and Save the Date cards. Create something your guests will find truly funny and you will humor them even before they actually get to the wedding proper. Reenacting movie posters, photo strip Save the Date cards and silly comic book-like photos are just a couple of ideas –but if you use your creativity, you will definitely come up with something that is huge fun too.
  • Include your pets in the wedding. If there’s one “sure”way to make every guest smile, that’s definitely including your pet in the wedding (or at least in the Save the Date pictures). From dressing up your puppies as the “bride and groom”to allowing your best “furry”friend to be the ring bearer, everything goes!
  • Offer personalized wedding favors your guests will actually want. From customized fashionable tote bags to paper fans that double as wedding programs, there is a huge number of ideas you can use!

Creating the décor for a wedding can be extremely fun –but it can be really stressful too (especially if you want to be 100% certain that everything looks perfect). If you want your wedding to look unique and beautiful at the same time, take a look at the following ribbon décor ideas –we guarantee you will love them!

  • Use ribbon as backdrop for your ceremony, for the wedding cake or for a photo booth. Depending on your color scheme and on your wedding theme, you can use elegant satin ribbon or you can combine other types of ribbon with fabrics to create a stunning and original backdrop. Also, you can either tie the ribbons to one another or you can simply fold them over a “line”as well.
  • Ribbon and lace wands. For a wedding exit nobody will ever forget, offer your guests ribbon and lace wands to “bewitch”you and your spouse as you exit your ceremony. This will look wonderful in the pictures!
  • Ribbon bouquets. For a really great-looking alternative to flower bouquets, use ribbon to create small “flowers”you can bring together in a bouquet for your flower girl and bridesmaids. Also, if you want to stick to the traditional flowers, you can always use ribbon to wrap the bouquets or to decorate the centerpieces as well –it will definitely add elegance, uniqueness and grace to your flowers.
  • Ribbon garlands for the décor. You can use these to decorate the bar, the venue or the ceremony site as well. The only limit you have is your own imagination so don’t be afraid to be creative with these pretty garlands!
