As a bride-to-be, you want your wedding to reflect who you are as a person and who you are as a couple – and that’s more than understandable, actually. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of event and you want everything to be flawless.

If you are searching for wedding invitations that truly reflect your personality, here are 3 of the most important things to know about creating the perfect and most personal stationery:

  • Think very well about your vision. This is the only way you will be able to actually voice out your opinion and ideas when you finally find a wedding stationery designer you can trust. Sit down, think of the main concepts you want to see in your wedding invitations, about the main colors and motifs, as well as about the overall “mood”you want your invitations to reflect.
  • Don’t just settle on the first designer that comes along. Shop around, interview multiple designers, take a look at their portfolio and settle for someone only when you feel that they can truly give life to your ideas.
  • Last, but not least, make sure you have an actual plan in order with your designer. Set clear deadlines for all the drafts, discuss the design, the motifs, the colors and the printing process and don’t forget to choose the shape, size, material and type of print you want as well. All these details are in your hand and it will be up to your designer to bring them together in a stylish and harmonious way.

Buying the perfect wedding gown is one of the most important tasks in a bride-to-be’s life – and one of the most time-consuming ones as well. Why would you want to buy two dresses instead of just one, then? Are there any advantages to doing this? We have gathered some of the most important things to know about this trend – so read on and find out more.

  • You can get your grand ceremony entrance – and you still get to be able to move during the reception. Large, spectacular wedding dresses are, of course, stunning. But they are very difficult to move in and they may prevent you from truly enjoying your wedding reception. Buying a second dress for the reception could be a life-saver in these cases.
  • You can have an after-party. Sure, you can have an after-party dressed in your ball gown too. But chances are that you will not feel very comfortable, especially if you want to “hit the town” after the reception. Changing into a second, more comfy wedding dress is a great option, especially if you choose a dress that is less formal than the first.
  • You can breathe. If you plan on having a stunning beach wedding, or if you simply plan on having a summer wedding, you should keep in mind that temperatures can get very high. Thus, having a second, less intricate wedding dress with you will help you keep your body cool and comfortable as well.

Your love story is truly unique – and thus, you will want your wedding to be just as special too. From the flowers on the table to the way you dress and to the color theme you choose for the décor, everything will say something about your personality. Of course, your wedding menu does not make any kind of exception from the rule.

Bacon may be the last thing you would have thought to include in your wedding menu – and that’s mostly because it is not usually associated with “fancy meals”. However, bacon can be just as fancy as you want it – and the following (delicious!) ideas prove it very well. Read on and find your wedding menu inspiration:

  • Mini bacon bruschetta bites. This works wonderfully as a passed appetizer for the cocktail hour, but it can be included (and with great success) into the actual reception as well. Your guests will just want more and more of these tiny bites of deliciousness!
  • Candied bacon salad. Yes, that’s right. Bring a little joy into a healthy salad by adding bits and pieces of candied bacon to it. Not even the guests on a very strict diet will actually be able to say “no” to this!
  • Bacon and maple syrup doughnuts. Who said bacon doesn’t work as dessert as well? With the help of a good chef, you can create a delicious bacon and maple syrup to pour on your eye-catching doughnut tower – and none of the guests will actually be able to complain about this idea!

It’s perfectly understandable that you want to look perfect as a bride – and your hair and makeup play a hugely important role in this. How to make sure you choose the most suitable makeup for you and that you avoid some of the most common bridal makeup mistakes? Read on and find out more.

  • Take your wedding theme/style into consideration. If you plan on having a more relaxed wedding (such as a rustic-chic one, for example), your makeup should be as light as possible. On the other hand, if you want a very glamorous, elegant wedding, you should talk to your makeup artist about creating a makeup that reflects the luxuriousness of your wedding.
  • Make sure you don’t overdo it – especially when it comes to the bronzer and highlighter. Using too much of these products will not only make your face look really “heavy”, but it will also look unnatural.
  • Remember that what looks good in magazines doesn’t always look good in real life too. For example, glitter smoky eyes look gorgeous on Jennifer Lopez or on any other red carpet celebrity – but this type of makeup almost never looks good in real life.
  • Keep the pink shades for the blush and for the lips – not for the eyes. Again, pink eye shadow may loom very feminine and beautiful in photos – but in reality it will make your eyes look like you have been crying.
