Rooftop Weddings

Some of the most underrated urban wedding venues have rooftop settings available.  These locations can provide a beautiful setting for both weddings and receptions alike.  Although there are seasons that are much more suitable for an outdoor wedding, you can host them on a rooftop any time of the year.  When it’s cold, just add some heating lanterns around the edges of the space and when it’s hot, try to host during a time of day that there is a cool breeze, like late evening. The same versatility goes for the time of day.  When hosting during the daytime, you can enjoy a bright and cheery atmosphere, and in the evening, a dim, romantic setting.  There are so many unique …

Wedding Party Gifts

Wedding party gifts are presents that you give each member of the wedding party as a ‘thank you’ for their help and participation.  The wedding party include the bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girl, ring bearer, and sometimes the ushers and greeters.  The gifts are usually given at the rehearsal dinner and can be anything.  Most people choose to give small, useful items like personalized engraved pocket knives or a make up palette.  They can be significant, funny, or thoughtful.  They don’t all have to be the same, but most people choose one item for either all of the bridesmaids or all of the groomsmen. Suggestions for bridesmaids gifts: …

Save the Date

If you have the time, don’t forget to send out a save the date card.  These are typically sent out 4-6 months before the wedding as a pre-invitation gesture.  Save the date cards are helpful for some guests to have an approximate idea about when you’re getting married.   Just understand that although some people will totally forget the save the date card,  it will be helpful to others.  If you need to get the show on the road and you don’t have 4-6 months to spare, that’s totally fine.  It is not required or rude to skip the save the date cards, it’s just a courtesy for guests. You don’t need to know much for the save the date cards.  Even if you haven’t…

Thanks A Lot, Hormones.

So, some funny (and seriously not-so-funny) things about being pregnant are the results of raging hormones.  You have to understand that you will probably not be feeling quite ‘normal’ when it comes to emotions.  The word “raging” is often used to describe the hormones of an expecting mother and I completely get it.  It’s like going from zero to sixty in every direction ALL DAY LONG.  While this is normal, you must consider those around you.  Try to find an outlet to help you calm your emotions.  You don’t want to blow up on your mother in law for something small (trust me, save it for a big one), or start uncontrollable sobbing while walking down the aisle.  Talk with your bridal party before and discuss ways they can help keep you relaxed and upbeat.  Try these things: Get ready at a salon, hotel, or even at…

Babymoon

Okay, so some people plan the honeymoon last.  Not me.  And you shouldn’t either, especially if you’re expecting a wee one in the months or even weeks following your big day.  It is so important to get that time just the two of you before your baby comes.  You’ll want to choose a place where you can be entertained without violating the laws of pregnancy (no alcohol, smoking, bungee jumping, etc.).  There are tons of things you can do on your honeymoon without that junk.  You can sight see, spend time in front of a fire watching old classics (you’ll be watching strictly Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for several years after…

Morning Sickness All Day

Sometimes morning sickness happens.  It can happen morning, noon, or night.  Most people say that there’s nothing you can do for it, but I have a few things you can try if you’re still sick come your big day.  What have you got to lose? Try these things: Snack (healthily) all day long:  This is the one that worked for me.  I found that I got sick about 3-4 hours after I went to sleep.  I found myself up in the middle of the night ravaging the pantry and fridge for the easiest solution which was usually salty pretzels or a bowl of sugary cereal.  I needed to change my ways so I started to be proactive.  I ate 3 fairly light meals a day and snacked at least once in …

Baby, You’re Early

So, the baby came early?  I hope all is well and everyone is healthy.  Once you’re settled and you’re ready to start thinking about what’s next with your wedding which could be just weeks or even days away.  No problem. The first step is to ask yourself if you WANT to get married on the date you’ve chosen (it might be very difficult to get married if you have just given birth the day before.) If you do , then ask yourself what is going to change?  The dress?  Maybe a little.  The pictures?  Yep, but for the better!  You’ll have your precious bundle to celebrate with!  Otherwise, just go with it.  Everything will work out, but be sure that you accept any and all help that …
