A Groom’s Cake is a great way to add some fun to your wedding reception

Your wedding is a huge moment in your life – both for you and for the people who will attend it as well. As the hosts of the party, both you and your future husband will want everyone at the wedding to have the time of their lives – and music plays a crucial role in this. While everyone can acknowledge the importance of having good music at a wedding, not many people out there know exactly whether they should have a DJ or a live band for their wedding. If you are among them, take a look at the following tips and decide on which of the options is best for you: ·         A live wedding band will most likely need more space. If you have booked a smaller venue, you might find it more difficult to incorporate a live wedding band in it. However, keep in mind that this depends a lot on what type of wedding  band you want to hire and on how many members it has too. ·         A live wedding band will be a more elegant choice, but it will most likely cost more as well. In general, DJs charge less than a wedding band so if you are running on a tighter budget you may want to consider the first option over the latter one. Again, keep in mind that this depends on the type of band you want to hire (or on the type of DJ you want to hire too). Before you settle for any of these ...

Wedding vows are more than just words and promises – they are the very foundation upon which you want to build your future marriage. Thus, choosing the right type of wedding vows is a very important decision and it should never be taken lightly. Should you write your own vows or stick to the traditional ones though? Here are some tips that will help you decide on what works best for your wedding: ·         If you want a religious wedding ceremony, you will most likely have to stick to the traditional vows. Each religion and religious group has its own “format” for the wedding vows – but at their very core, they all follow the same beautiful values a marriage should be built upon. Also, keep in mind that there are certain wedding officiants and religious groups that will allow you to write your own vows too. ·         If you want to make your wedding vows really personal, writing them yourself is the best option. It might feel very difficult at first, but once you sit down and think of all the wonderful things you and your future spouse have went through, you will definitely come up with something truly meaningful. ·         You don’t have to actually choose between traditional vows and ...

As a bride-to-be, you probably want your dress to be impeccable from all points of view. If you are like most ladies out there though, you will have to go through a series of fittings before you can be certain that everything about your dress fits your body in a harmonious way. However, how can you be 100% sure that everything is alright with your wedding gown? Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to this: ·         Check every single detail of the gown – and pay even more attention to how the upper/front part fits you and to how the skirt fits you as well. A dress that is too loose on the upper part can be very uncomfortable (and it will make you pull it up all night long). At the same time, a dress that is too tight around the skirt can look really badly (especially when looked at from behind). ·         Bring your shoes with you. If you want to be absolutely certain that the length of your dress is adequate, bring your bridal shoes with you. Even more, if you plan on wearing two pairs of shoes (high heels for the ceremony and something more comfortable for the reception, for example), make sure you bring both of them with you on your last fitting. ·         It is also advisable that you bring the other accessories ...
