  • Bridesmaids Gifts From Etsy
    01 October 2022

    Upon one of my recent quests for prints for the new nursery, I stumbled across some gorgeous maid of honour and bridesmaids gifts. By no means is it essential to get your bridal party gifts but I get asked for suggestions a lot. One thing to note when shopping on Etsy, look out for delivery charges. There are a lot of Irish suppliers on there but it’s just a matter of finding them.

  • Romantic Rooftop Proposal in Downtown Denver
    01 October 2022
    Colorado Proposal The Couple 

    Maddy + Haylie

    Love Story
    “TINDER, this sweet and amazing couple met on Tinder!!! From the start they knew this was going to be something special. Maddy reached out to me about over a month before the proposal! She already had put so much planning and detail in this proposal and she knew Haylie would be so so surprised. She planned for the proposal to be at Kisbee on the roof a rooftop bar in Cherry Creek. Maddy would be giving Haylie a scrapbook filled with memories and it would seem normal as they would be out celebrating their 2 year anniversary on this outing. I strategically hit by the pool area when I saw them arrive, I could hear them laughing and having a great time. When they began opening the scrapbook, I knew it was game time. At the end of the scrapbook, Maddy wrote out letters to Haylie, Maddy then got up and proposed right there one knee with the beautiful Denver Skyline behind. Haylie was SURPRISED beyond belief to say the least. She was so shocked she quite literally was SPEECHLESS. It was so beautiful and yet Haylie had no idea of the next surprise Maddy had up her sleeve. I left from Kisbee, to Carboy Winery where the second surprise would be. Maddy had planned for all their family and friends to be there, but Haylie thought they were just going wine tasting afterwards. When they finally got to Carboy it was POURING. Not just a little bit of rain, I mean down right pouring, and SOAKED. They made their way to the back of the courtyard where everyone was and it was so wholesome with so much happiness from all of their friends and family. Truly, it was such a unique and incredible night celebrating Maddy & Haylie!”

  • Why You Deserve an Apology
    30 September 2022

    It was an entrepreneurial event for females… 

    The type of event where brightly colored balloon arches matched the brightly colored tassels hanging from the ceiling, which matched the brightly colored pens and notebooks.

    If a Lisa Frank neon calendar came to life, it would be this event.

    So you can imagine my surprise when–immediately after I gave the keynote presentation–a guy in the back of the room raised his hand to ask a question… The first question of the Q&A session.

    He pushed his beard out of the way as he pressed the microphone to his lips and asked, “So how does it feel to have overcome self-doubt and step into confidence?”

    Confused, I looked over my shoulder because, surely, he was asking someone else. But I was the only person on stage. So I apologized.


    “I’m so sorry I misled you,” I said with my hands pushed deep into my pockets, “I struggle with self-doubt every day… every single day. I just don’t let it stop me from taking action.”

    So that’s why I’m sending this note of apology to you too. 

    I’m sorry if I ever came across as someone who springs out of bed with a detailed plan of success, who eats uncertainty for breakfast, and crushes fear like an aluminum can in the palm of my hand.

    I’m here to lay it all out in black and white:  

    • I’m a little bit scared a lot of the time (but I don’t quit).
    • I’m unsure if I’m making the right decisions (but I pivot quickly).
    • I do things I don’t like to do (to get where I want to go).

    Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get to business, shall we?

    Perhaps we just throw back a daily dose of fear, and uncertainty, and just get it done. Cheers to facing it straight, no chaser.

    It’s time, friend. It’s time to show up and do it a little bit scared.

    Ready to move beyond your fear and ignite possibilities that catapult you forward? Good. You were made for more, and it’s time to continue growing your business to new heights, Social Curator provides everything you need to up-level your business.

    Earlier this week, Tamron announced its “category disrupting, fast-aperture standard zoom lens—the 20-40mm f/2.8 DI III VXS (AO62). The company is promoting the lens as the smallest and lightest in its class, one that can “open new video opportunities.”

    Designed for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras, the lens has been created “in aggressive pursuit of portability that is ideal for everyday use,” according to Tamron. “At the longest zoom end, the lens offers a standard focal range of 40mm, handy for everyday shooting of snaps, portraits, and food photos.

Another feature is the beautifully soft defocus blur effects and circular bokeh that are unique to the fast f/2.8 aperture. 

    Other features of the lens include a nine-blade aperture diaphragm, a moisture-resistant construction, a 67mm front filter thread and a fluorine coating on the front-most element to keep dirt, debris and water away.

  • Josie and Indiana – Crayke Manor
    30 September 2022

    What a wedding! Josie and Indiana’s Crayke Manor wedding day was an absolute pleasure to photograph. Josie and Indiana brought such energy, love and creativity to their wedding. It was visually so arresting – the details, the clothes (many designed by Josie) stood out as being uniquely inventive, playful and well, so very stylish. But more than the aesthetic what really mattered was the people. Chiefly Josie and Indiana (lovely people – a lovely couple). But also every single guest. The guests brought such warmth to the day and there was a collective joy. We loved photographing this wedding. We were only there a few hours, but captured hundreds of beautiful moments. You can find some of these moments in the slideshow below.

    A wonderful wedding in Yorkshire

    Josie and Indiana travelled from America for their big day. – bringing guests from every corner of the globe to North Yorkshire. It was a beautiful wedding and one we’ll remember for many years to come. Josie’s parents conducted the ceremony – and everyone present had a wonderful time. We hope you enjoyed the slideshow – if you’re one of Josie or Indiana’s friends or family, please contact them directly for access to their full gallery. If you’d like to see some of our favourite images from the day in more detail, you’ll find a small selection below.

  • Dazzling Dominican Republic Wedding
    01 October 2022
    While hosting a wedding in the Dominican Republic immediately appealed to Isabel and Anthony, it was not the white sand beaches or the island vibes that compelled these college sweethearts to make it happen. The desire to be close to the bride's family and honor her roots while enjoying a getaway with loved ones is what ultimately led the couple to say "I do" in the DR. Read our interview with the couple below to get all the insights into their dazzling wedding!


    Q:
    Why did you choose to do a destination wedding?
    A: Isabel:  “I’m a first-generation American. My parents are from the Dominican Republic and a significant portion of my family is still on the island, so I think we always knew we wanted to get married there so that Anthony’s family could experience DR and its people and so that it would be easier for my family to be a part of this big day. That was very important for me. Although immigration allows people the chance to pursue dreams and the chance to provide a better life for their families, there are a lot of sacrifices. My family in the DR has missed out on most, if not all, the major milestones in my life – just like I have missed out on a lot of theirs, so I wanted to make sure this was not a milestone my family missed. I wanted us to welcome and celebrate this new chapter in my life together.”


    Q: How/why did you choose the location/destination? Did you run into any issues specific to this destination and how did you resolve them?
    A: Anthony: “We wanted somewhere in the DR where there would be enough accommodations for our family and friends that would be traveling, so we knew we would likely have it at or near a resort. Isabel remembered hearing about Casa de Campo over the years as they were the place for several high-profile weddings so out of curiosity we looked up the resort and fell in love with the images and the venue options. We didn’t want a beach wedding, so we loved that Casa de Campo had venue options aside from the beach.”

    Isabel: “Also, I grew up watching telenovelas and most of them end in a beautiful church wedding where the protagonists walk off into their happily ever after. I wanted a venue with that level of romance and drama.”

    Q: What helped you the most in the planning process?
    A: Anthony: “Having a wedding planner that was knowledgeable, responsive, and patient. Neither of us has done this before, and we hadn’t attended too many weddings, so we needed to be guided through the process very thoroughly. “

    Isabel: “In addition to having a phenomenal wedding planner, being on the same page with Anthony and having him as involved in all of the decision-making was so helpful. This day was about both of us and so having him engaged in the planning allowed us to split the workload and allowed both of our visions to be represented where possible. 

    Q: Did you include any do-it-yourself projects in your wedding/reception? If so, please describe them.
    A: "We had our seating chart sign which was designed by my sister, and we got it professionally printed in Punta Cana for the reception. My garter was made by my Godmother so that was very special. And lastly, my sister designed a wedding itinerary for our guests to pick up at check-in (since we had events across two days at various locations). This way, our guests had something to refer to that wasn’t on their phone if they found themselves without WIFI or cell service.”

     

    Q: Do you feel you spent more or less money by choosing to do a destination wedding?
    A: "We feel we spent more due to the fact we chose Casa de Campo. There are a lot more affordable wedding venues in the Dominican Republic which would have allowed us to spend less, but we loved the accommodating full-service experience Casa de Campo offered us and our guests."


    Q: Any special advice you can offer?
    A:

    • Secure a wedding planner that’s local or knows your chosen destination well and that is responsive.
    • Although nowadays we can make things happen virtually thanks to zoom and other similar platforms, we found it very helpful to budget time and money to visit your wedding planner and destination in person. It was so reassuring and helpful to do a proper in-person walkthrough and tasting.
    • Give your guests enough notice to prepare for travel.
    • Ensure you have a way an appropriate way to communicate with guests so that you can relay important information and so they have a forum to ask questions.
    • Lastly, consider a way to welcome guests, whether it is a simple itinerary or welcome package with goodies like sunglasses or candy at check-in.

    A: "We had our seating chart sign which was designed by my sister, and we got it professionally printed in Punta Cana for the reception. My garter was made by my Godmother so that was very special. And lastly, my sister designed a wedding itinerary for our guests to pick up at check-in (since we had events across two days at various locations). This way, our guests had something to refer to that wasn’t on their phone if they found themselves without WIFI or cell service.”

     

    Q: Do you feel you spent more or less money by choosing to do a destination wedding?
    A: "We feel we spent more due to the fact we chose Casa de Campo. There are a lot more affordable wedding venues in the Dominican Republic which would have allowed us to spend less, but we loved the accommodating full-service experience Casa de Campo offered us and our guests."


    Q: Any special advice you can offer?
    A:

    • Secure a wedding planner that’s local or knows your chosen destination well and that is responsive.
    • Although nowadays we can make things happen virtually thanks to zoom and other similar platforms, we found it very helpful to budget time and money to visit your wedding planner and destination in person. It was so reassuring and helpful to do a proper in-person walkthrough and tasting.
    • Give your guests enough notice to prepare for travel.
    • Ensure you have a way an appropriate way to communicate with guests so that you can relay important information and so they have a forum to ask questions.
    • Lastly, consider a way to welcome guests, whether it is a simple itinerary or welcome package with goodies like sunglasses or candy at check-in.

  • Marriage proposal in Mallorca with roses, cava and sunset over the sea
    30 September 2022

    Proposals are one of our favourite events, and even more so if it’s a proposal in Mallorca, because we love the Balearic Islands as much as we love to make many couples happy, and a proposal is nothing but happiness!

    Did you know that Mallorca is one of the best places to get down on one knee, as well as to get married? Because the atmosphere there is full of romanticism and the light shines are especially bright, that is why the groom chose it as his destination to get engaged!

    In this article, we’ll tell you all the details of this couple’s proposal in Mallorca so you can get inspired for yours because proposals are never going out of fashion!

    Make yourself comfortable, let’s get started.

    Photo via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizEngagement in Mallorca is a dream of all girls

    There are beaches, crystal waters, rocks and fine sand, it is always a magical place, and is ideal for a romantic date or to create a special atmosphere, especially if we are talking about the paradisiacal beaches of the Balearic Islands!

    That’s why this place attracts a lot of couples, who go to a beach to have that warm and romantic atmosphere to get engaged.

    Our groom today chose to go to Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands, to get down on one knee in front of his girl, take out the ring and ask the big question.

    And the fact is that proposals in places like these are perfect for those who love romanticism, feelings and emotions!

    Photo via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizBackdrop: sunset and crystal-clear water

    It happened in one of the coves of Mallorca where the groom wanted to get down on one knee in front of his bride and take out the precious ring, but… First, we had to prepare a dreamlike scenery!

    For the great moment of this proposal in Mallorca, we prepared a large white towel with geometric motifs and some cushions, we put it on the rocks by the sea so that the couple could sit comfortably.

    On the towel, we placed a small wooden table where we put champagne, glasses and two plates for them to enjoy the grapes that we also placed on it.

    Before having filled their stomachs, the groom had it clear: it was time to get down on one knee. He asked her the big question; she was so surprised and excited!

    Without a second’s hesitation, she said yes amid tears of emotion and then they embraced and kissed.

    The moment was filled with emotion and happiness, and then it was time to fill the stomach and to enjoy and celebrate the fact that they were already engaged. The bride only thought she was going to have a snack by the sea and ended up being the protagonist of a proposal of marriage in Mallorca!

    Photo via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizOutfits were perfect for this occasion

    Bride’s outfit for this special day was a fresh, light and flowing long dress with straps full of geometric shapes, very summery!

    As for the groom, he chose to wear a classic white shirt and beige shorts.

    Both looked very elegant, wearing trainers. Totally appropriate for the occasion of a proposal of marriage in Mallorca!

    Photo via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizPhoto via: Weddings and Events by Natalia OrtizA bouquet of lovely flowers 

    The groom wanted to gift his bride with a bouquet of flowers after asking her to marry him. He told us about the bride’s favourite flowers and we went to find a bouquet that she would love.

    We made her a perfect bouquet of red roses and she was blown away!

    A moment to remember!

    This moment is so important because it is the beginning of a new life, the couple had to have this memory in their minds, and that’s why Tanya Vasiluk was in charge to capture every second of it.

    Long live love and beautiful proposals of marriage! And the result could not be any other if the Wedding Planner who organised this proposal was Natalia Ortiz.

  • Make Your Honeymoon Happen
    29 September 2022


    Have you ever met a couple that seems to have maintained that lovely honeymoon vibe after a decade or more of marriage?  Perhaps you notice them holding hands, sneaking a kiss, or complimenting each other and you think, “Someday, I hope to be just like them.”


    Well, a recent study conducted by Honeyfund shows that couples married more than 11 years who took a honeymoon rate their marital satisfaction as “excellent,’ compared to 35% who didn’t honeymoon.

    The data also revealed that among couples who are happy in their marriage, 85% continued to travel regularly.

    So what is it about honeymoons and travel that correlates to happy marriages? According to relationship research, it could be simply investing time in each other, away from the pressures of everyday life. In fact, the data showed that surveyed couples’ #1 reason for traveling is wanting quality time with their partner.

    The study also dove into risk factors that might prevent couples from following through with their honeymoon – things like college education, income, and even the state you live in. (Fun fact: Illinois was the top state for honeymooners nationally. Virginia was the lowest – despite their slogan, “Virginia is for lovers.”)

    So how do you ensure you make your honeymoon happen no matter your situation? Here are some fool-proof ways:

    1. Let your friends and family know your honeymoon is a priority for you. 

    • Use a honeymoon registry like Honeyfund – it’s a tasteful way to communicate your wishes around honeymoon gifts, without coming off as tacky. It’s also a great wish list to share with bosses, co-workers and other folks in your life who won’t be on your wedding guest list but still want to celebrate with you. 

    Keep your wedding small, to leave more funds for the honeymoon.

    • The easiest way to reduce your overall wedding budget is to reign in your invite list. More distant friends and family who aren’t invited can easily understand, “We decided to keep it small so we could prioritize the honeymoon.”

    • Get inspired by these low-cost wedding ideas.

    Start saving points and cash, now. 

    • If you don’t already have a favorite airline, hotel, or travel-friendly credit card, time to open one! Put all your monthly bills and expenses on the card, so you can earn points for many months or years before it’s time to book the honeymoon. 

    • If you’re working on your credit, start with a small monthly credit limit and only charge what you can pay off each month. This will have the double benefit of helping you improve your credit before the financial demands of marriage begin – things like renting a home, buying a car, or taking out a mortgage.

    • Open a savings account just for the honeymoon – separate from the wedding budget. Put a few dollars a month each into the account and you’ll have some nice spending cash in there when it’s time to take off!

    Starting your marriage off with a honeymoon will never be a bad decision – and it might just be the key to keeping the honeymoon spark alive in your marriage for years to come.

  • Stately Scotland Castle Wedding
    28 September 2022

    Newlyweds, Kara and Nathan, dreamed of a small and intimate destination wedding. When deciding on a location, the couple wanted to choose a place that felt “outside of the box” and unique. While a tropical island wedding sounded appealing, it couldn't quite compare to the lush mountain forests of Scotland. Plus, an ancient castle in the towering mountains was far too dreamy to pass up. This Scottish landmark would make the decision to say “I do” thousands of miles away from home a simple one. 



    “We chose Scotland for the scenery, the grandeur, and for the castles, of course,” the couple says. 

    While choosing the destination felt like a breeze, navigating the implications of COVID was anything but easy. Kara and Nathan were forced to postpone their special day a year. Although it was not ideal, their spirits remained high, trusting that it would be worth it to wait.

    On the south side of the Drumtochty Forest, tucked away behind the hills sat a neo-gothic style castle. Its charming ambiance made for the perfect place to celebrate the occasion and accommodate all guests. Choosing this enchanting venue was made easy thanks to the help of wedding planner, Lisa (with Tartan Weddings).

    “We had two nights and three days exclusively and all of our guests stayed within the castle,” Kara says. “We wanted our venue to really feel Scottish, this one really hit the mark.”

    Kara and Nathan felt a bit troubled when it came to decor. Neither of them felt confident in their eye for design, so handing that responsibility over to the vendors was easy. Their one request: color. Flowers by Lilybet took full control of their vision and decorated in jewel tones, largely gold with blue accents for a luxurious touch. 

    “I couldn’t imagine it being more beautiful,” Kara says. 

    The ceremony was the perfect balance of “laid back” and “serious.” The couple felt it was important to tie in Scottish elements to their special day. Hand-sketched whiskey tasting glasses were placed in welcome bags with handwritten letters. A live-event painter captured the event by creating portraits of guests. And an Oysterman served guests, a touch significantly important to the Rhode Islanders. Guests were serenaded by a bagpiper who then turned into a saxophonist at cocktail hour. A string quartet performed at the dinner party. 

    “We incorporated some traditions such as a ring warming ceremony to involve all of our closest family and friends and also drank whisky from the quaich,” says Kara. “We exchanged vow books to share privately with each other and that felt really special.”

    Details of the three-day wedding celebration were planned to perfection. From perfect sunny weather to colorful decor and fun vendors, the three-day visit simply felt effortless. A special thanks to Lisa, “our event was the most perfect and memorable day of our lives,” says Kara.

    Kara's best advice: “Relinquish control and let the day happen and the vendors do their thing,” she says. “Hire a wedding planner (they’re worth the money) so that you can be fully present and enjoy every moment with your partner and community.”

  • Your 20-year anniversary is approaching: The porcelain weddings, celebrate them in the north of Spain!
    28 September 2022

    It’s time to celebrate! You are about to celebrate your 20th anniversary: the porcelain weddings. So, we need to tell you about the best venues in the best cities for your anniversary!

    During your next few minutes of reading you will discover 5 of the most exclusive venues found in the north of Spain. And why the north for celebrating twenty years of marriage?

    Because of the contrast in its sea and mountains, the tranquillity of its landscapes, the luscious and wild nature… if you are looking for a place to celebrate your special day with these surroundings, the northern region is perfect for you!

    And we’ll show you… right now!

    In Guipúzcoa Hotel Maria Cristina

    Since the 19th century, when San Sebastian stopped being a fishing village and became the favourite area of the great aristocrats and nobles of the time, this city has not stopped growing, because more and more people came to enjoy bathing on La Concha beach, the sunshine, the sea, its promenade and its cafes and terraces.

    San Sebastian was filled with high society and with the arrival of the Belle Époque, luxury buildings began to be built for these new residents. This is when the María Cristina Hotel was born, which was opened in 1912.

    Designed by the architect Charles Mewes, this hotel overlooking the sea has 136 rooms and three palatial style rooms on the ground floor of the gallery (the Ibaia, the Elcano and the Zubia), which have made this place one of the world’s favourites.

    The María Cristina has been linked to the historical and cultural life of the city, welcoming celebrities such as the regent of Spain, María Cristina, and 40 years later, celebrities of the moment such as Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Brad Pitt, Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, Woody Allen and Susan Sarandon.

    A perfect hotel to enjoy porcelain weddings among luxury, fame, glamour and elegance, whilst enjoying an exclusive selection of menus, because the occasion deserves it!

    Hotel Maria CristinaIn Biscay Hotel Convento San Roque

    This old monastery built in 1666, (the monastery of Santa Clara, former convent of cloistered nuns during the seventeenth century) is located 28 kilometers from Bilbao, specifically in the town of Balmaseda and built by order of Don Juan de la Piedra (from the town itself) and Berástegui.

    Today it is a small hotel with a special charm where, after its reconversion, your anniversary celebration will take place in so much beauty, thanks to its impressive architecture full of history.

    Another touch of exclusivity lies in the cuisine, dishes that fuse tradition and the avant-garde with outstanding quality ingredients prepared by great professionals.

    Tasty fish, delicious meat and vegetables to be enjoyed in its halls, one of them located in the old refectory of the convent itself, or in the central glass courtyard, and always accompanied by one of the most renowned wines in Spain, such as Navarros, Riojas, Penedés, Riberas del Duero, Bierzo… and with designation of origin!

    To continue with the evening, you can sleep in one of its 9 rooms, which are old cells of the Poor Clare nuns who slept there in their day.

    An ideal place to retreat from the world for a moment and enjoy a unique experience with your partner.

    Hotel Convento San RoqueVilla Lucía

    Villa Lucía is a beautiful venue located in Laguardia, in the heart of La Rioja Alavesa, a must for wine lovers. It was the former holiday estate of the fable writer Samaniego and its origin dates back to the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th century. This place is surrounded by nature: large gardens, waterfalls, streams, vineyards…

    The complex is 10,000 m2 and has spacious rooms and lounges, open spaces with heated parasols overlooking the vineyards and a spectacular botanical garden.

    They also organize visits to wineries, tours of the vineyards, wine and food experiences and all kinds of activities to celebrate your 20 years of marriage.

    Villa LuciaIn Asturias The Palace of Meres

    This beautiful 15th century palace is located in the town of Siero and still has many invaluable artefacts inside! Such as porcelain and earthenware pieces, antique furniture, architecture… which have made it a Property of Cultural Interest in the Monument catagory

    It also belongs to the Foundation of Historic and Unique Houses of Spain and Hispania Nostra and its historical archive has been catalogued in the inventory of the General Directorate of Goods, Arts and Archives of the Ministry of Culture.

    Of course, it has been completely restored and refurbished so that you can be with your partner in maximum comfort, thanks to the architect D. Joaquín Cores Uría, his brother D. José Ramón Cores Uría and their descendants, who have been supervising the restoration of the palace over the last fifty years.

    The Palace of Meres is surrounded by a beautiful oak-tree forest that fills the venue with charm and romanticism to be able to lavish love on your anniversary.

    You will celebrate your porcelain wedding among authentic porcelain pieces!

    Palacio de MeresIn A Coruña Pazo de Vilaboa

    This magical venue is located on the ancient ruins of an old farmhouse, rebuilt by Don Alvaro de Torres Taboada in the 19th century.

    It is located just 10 minutes from the city of A Coruña and its construction is reminiscent of a medieval fortress due to its square and circular towers and its chapel, where there is a neoclassical altarpiece full of paintings and votive offerings from the 18th century.

    The Pazo de Vilaboa also has a restaurant that specialises in traditional food, which can be tasted among the walls, cobbled courtyards, the red room, gardens with large trees and fountains…

    And spend the night! In a place as romantic as the bridal suite, to make this occasion a real second honeymoon.

    Its history, grandiose architecture, beautiful views and landscapes, as well as the viewpoint overlooking the valley, make it the most special place for your anniversary celebration.

    Pazo de VilaboaIn Pontevedra Mondariz Spa

    Following our tour of the north of Spain, we arrive at Pontevedra and the Mondariz Spa, a venue with much tranquillity, luxury and charm.

    The Galician spas are known as some of the most magnificent in the country and specifically Mondariz is one of the most renowned places in the region since 1873, when the Peinador brothers founded it.

    Since then, for decades it has hosted countless celebrities from the world of art, politics and culture, who have not left the venue without strolling through its gardens or tasting its unique menus in one of its beautiful halls.

    The main event at this venue is none other than its water, a place where you can relax at the spa, enjoy a relaxing unique thermal circuit such as the Celtic Circuit and give your body any of our thermal treatments, a very special occasion (as it is your anniversary) to calm down and recover after a few games of golf!

  • The Facial that Does it All
    28 September 2022

    I’m not going to sugar coat it - I’ve never been a huge fan of facials. When going to a spa or salon, if given the choice between a massage, wrap or facial, I’m never choosing the facial. In part because it’s not typically a relaxing or pleasant experience for me. I have sensitive skin that often breaks out immediately following a treatment even if the products used are high quality and known to not cause irritation. 



    When Geneo Facial reached out to us to see if we might want to try a session, I was reluctant. But reading the reviews and living in a relentlessly dry climate, I figured it might be worth my time. 

    What made me perk up reading the pitch from the PR person was the three-in-one technology that’s used. Oxygen is the main component of the three part facial - exfoliation, oxygenation and nourishment. Depending on what ails your skin, you can choose from six different treatments. One can brighten and rejuvenate your skin while another will boost and firm and the list goes on. For me, I needed some skin quenching to moisturize my tired, dry skin so I went with the “Hydrate Facial” promising to retain moisture and strengthen the skin barrier. 

     

    I met the aesthetician who gave me the full tutorial of how the machine works and why it’s so effective for skin issues of all types. Honestly, I have heard all the schpiels before and am always a skeptic. My guard was up thinking my skin would break out and I’d be squirming half way through the facial because something was burning or painful. 

    Not this time. My practitioner was very skilled and heard my concerns from the start. She was incredibly gentle but also made sure to explain how effective this non-invasive this technology and product was.

     

    I relaxed and for about 45 minutes found myself enjoying the facial almost as much as a massage!

    By the end, my skin was glowing and she gave me some samples as a parting gift, so I could keep the hydration lasting as long as possible. 

    When I left, my skin wasn’t red and inflamed as I’ve experienced in the past - it was radiant and moisturized. But the real test was what would happen the next day…would I experience a breakout as I usually do? 

    I’m happy to report, the following day, my skin was blemish-free and not irritated in the least. The hydration had diminished, but I was still looking better than I had pre-facial. 


    If you’re like me and shy away from going in for treatments, I highly recommend the Geneo facial. There are practitioners around the U.S. who offer this type of facial - so get yourself W-day ready without the pain or suffering of a traditional treatment.

  • 5 Best Ladies Trouser Suits For Weddings [Wedding Guest Must-Haves!]
    30 September 2022

    You’ve got a wedding to attend, and you want to look good. What should you wear? Well, who says that you have to stick to the traditional dress and heels combo?

    Trouser suits have made a serious comeback in recent years, and they are no longer just for the office.

    They can be worn on any occasion, from business meetings to casual nights out with friends -and even a summer wedding.

    The best part is that trouser suits are extremely versatile. You can pair them with everything from sneakers to pumps, and dress them up with a wide range of accessories and jewelry.

    If you’re looking for something different to your usual attire, then this is the perfect option for you.

    We took a closer look at some of the best trouser suit options for weddings, as well as some top tips to help you rock the look!

    1. The Traditional Suit

    If you’re looking for a classic yet classy outfit, then a traditional trouser suit is the way to go. It’s easy to see why these outfits are so popular -they’re comfortable, stylish, and timeless.

    Plus, they come in an array of colours, patterns, and styles, making it easy to find one that fits your personal style.

    Classic trouser suits tend to be straight-legged in design, and so look great when paired with a simple pair of heels, or even sandals.

    The blazer will help to hug your figure, creating a classic, stylish silhouette, while the pants will add a slimming effect that ensures you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

    To make your classic trouser suit more appropriate for weddings, try pairing it with a white shirt underneath, and go a little wild with your accessories and necklaces – this will give the outfit a fun, modern feel.

    2. The Dressy Suit

    Dressier trouser suits are the epitome of sophistication. These outfits are usually longer in length and feature a higher waistline, which helps to create a slimmer appearance.

    This means that they work perfectly for those who are trying to lose weight or simply need to slim down their figure and create a striking visual appearance that turns heads for the right reasons.

    Dressier trouser suits also tend to be very feminine, and often include lace detailing ruffles, and other embellishments.

    They’re ideal for special occasions like weddings, where you’ll want to show off your beautiful looks, and enjoy the attention you’ve paid to your appearance.

    These suits tend to be used to create a sophisticated, elegant look.

    These dressier trouser suits tend to come in a range of different fabrics, such as silk, satin, chiffon, and velvet, to create a unique and individualized look, and can be paired with anything from high heels to wedges, depending on the type of wedding you are attending.

    3. The Funky Suit

    Funky suits are another great choice if you’re looking for a trendy, fashionable outfit that won’t break the bank.

    These suits are typically shorter in length and feature a lower waistline, which creates a slimmer appearance.

    They’re also often known as “graphic” suits because of the bold prints and designs that adorn them.

    These suits are ideal for parties and events where you want to have fun, but still, look elegant and put together, making them a popular choice for weddings.

    The key to rocking funky suits is finding the right fit.

    A loose cut will allow you to move freely, while a fitted cut will ensure that your body shape is displayed in its best light, so it can be great if you are feeling confident.

    You can also pair looser trousers with a more fitted blazer for a dramatic, form-fitting look.

    4. The Classic Suit

    If you’re looking for something a little bit more traditional, then a classic trouser suit may be exactly what you’re after.

    These suits are generally made from cotton and feature a slightly longer length than most trouser suits, which makes them perfect for women who don’t want to appear too short.

    A classic trouser suit tends to be a little bit more formal than some of the other options we mentioned above, but it’s not necessarily boring either.

    It’s a versatile option that works well for any occasion, whether you’re going to an office party, or heading to a wedding reception, and can be dressed up in any manner you desire; try bold, strong jewelry such as necklaces and earrings, or go minimal with simple accessories like a watch and a statement purse.

    5. The Lace Suit

    Lace dresses are one of the hottest trends at the moment, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t wear one yourself.

    If you’re looking for a stylish, yet comfortable way to look your best at a wedding, then lace trouser suits are the answer.

    Lace suits are incredibly flattering, and can make you feel sexy and glamorous without having to spend hours in front of a mirror.

    They’re also extremely easy to style, meaning that you can easily change your look by swapping out your shoes, adding a scarf, or even changing your hairstyle, making them versatile and great value for money.

    How To Choose A Trouser Suit For A Wedding

    So, just how do you go about choosing the best trouser suit for your upcoming wedding? There are a few considerations to bear in mind, and these include:

    1. Your Body Shape

    When shopping for a trouser suit, it’s important to consider your own body shape before purchasing one. This means taking into account things like your bust size, waist measurement, hip measurement, and leg length.

    You should always aim to buy a trouser suit that fits you perfectly, rather than buying something that doesn’t quite fit, only to find that it looks awful once you get home.

    2. Your Budget

    You’ll need to decide on a budget when shopping for a trouser dress, and this is especially true if you’re planning on wearing it to a wedding.

    It is a good idea to try and choose something that you can wear again, and this means investing in something that won’t break the bank, and that you can enjoy even when the wedding is over – this will help ensure that you have great value for money.

    3. Colour

    The colour of your trouser suit is another consideration to take into account, particularly if you’re planning on attending a wedding where the bride wears white.

    The best colour will depend on a number of factors, including your skin tone, hair colour, and eye colour, as well as the overall colour scheme of the wedding itself, and the season that the event is taking place in.

    4. Material

    Trouser suits come in a wide range of materials, including silk, satin, cotton, wool, linen, and polyester, so you’ll want to consider what material you prefer, and which will work best for you.

    You may also wish to consider the fabric content of the trouser suit, as this will affect its durability and longevity.

    Comfort is important here – there is no sense in spending lots of money on a trouser suit that isn’t durable enough to last you through the day, or that you will feel uncomfortable in.

    5. Style

    Finally, you’ll want to think about the style of the trouser suit that you’ve chosen. Do you prefer a fitted trouser suit, or would you rather opt for a loose-fitting design?

    How much detail do you prefer? Are you looking for a trouser suit with pockets or one without?

    These are all questions that you’ll need to ask yourself, and they’ll help you narrow down your choices.

    6. Accessories

    Finally, you’ll probably want to add some accessories to your trouser suit. This could be anything from a matching purse to a pair of pumps, or even a clutch bag.

    Whatever you choose, make sure that it compliments your outfit, and helps you stand out from the crowd.

    How To Accessorize A Trouser Suit

    One of the true secrets to rocking a trouser suit is to ensure that you have the right accessories, and these can include:

    Shoes

    Shoes are an essential part of any outfit, but they’re especially important when you’re wearing a trouser suit.

    If you’re going to be walking around a lot during the day, then you’ll want to invest in a pair of comfortable shoes that you can slip off at the end of the day, while still looking fabulous.

    Heels can be a great way to jazz up a trouser suit, but make sure you are comfortable.

    The Perfect Purse

    A purse is a must-have accessory for every occasion, and a trouser suit is no exception. You should look for a purse that matches your trouser suit, and that has plenty of room inside for everything that you need.

    A clutch bag is perfect for weddings, allowing you to carry all you need without weighing you down.

    Jewelry

    Jewelry adds a touch of glamour to any ensemble, and a trouser dress is no different. Make sure that whatever jewelry you choose fits perfectly with your trouser suit, ensuring that it doesn’t distract from the outfit.

    Final Thoughts

    There’s nothing wrong with choosing a trouser suit over a cocktail dress, but you’ll need to know how to accessorize it properly.

    By following our guide above, you’ll soon find that dressing up the perfect trouser suit is easy and fun – and will ensure that you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

    You should always aim to buy a trouser suit that fits you perfectly, rather than buying something that doesn’t quite fit, only to find that it looks awful once you get home.

    2. Your Budget

    You’ll need to decide on a budget when shopping for a trouser dress, and this is especially true if you’re planning on wearing it to a wedding.

    It is a good idea to try and choose something that you can wear again, and this means investing in something that won’t break the bank, and that you can enjoy even when the wedding is over – this will help ensure that you have great value for money.

    3. Colour

    The colour of your trouser suit is another consideration to take into account, particularly if you’re planning on attending a wedding where the bride wears white.

    The best colour will depend on a number of factors, including your skin tone, hair colour, and eye colour, as well as the overall colour scheme of the wedding itself, and the season that the event is taking place in.

    4. Material

    Trouser suits come in a wide range of materials, including silk, satin, cotton, wool, linen, and polyester, so you’ll want to consider what material you prefer, and which will work best for you.

    You may also wish to consider the fabric content of the trouser suit, as this will affect its durability and longevity.

    Comfort is important here – there is no sense in spending lots of money on a trouser suit that isn’t durable enough to last you through the day, or that you will feel uncomfortable in.

    5. Style

    Finally, you’ll want to think about the style of the trouser suit that you’ve chosen. Do you prefer a fitted trouser suit, or would you rather opt for a loose-fitting design?

    How much detail do you prefer? Are you looking for a trouser suit with pockets or one without?

    These are all questions that you’ll need to ask yourself, and they’ll help you narrow down your choices.

    6. Accessories

    Finally, you’ll probably want to add some accessories to your trouser suit. This could be anything from a matching purse to a pair of pumps, or even a clutch bag.

    Whatever you choose, make sure that it compliments your outfit, and helps you stand out from the crowd.

    How To Accessorize A Trouser Suit

    One of the true secrets to rocking a trouser suit is to ensure that you have the right accessories, and these can include:

    Shoes

    Shoes are an essential part of any outfit, but they’re especially important when you’re wearing a trouser suit.

    If you’re going to be walking around a lot during the day, then you’ll want to invest in a pair of comfortable shoes that you can slip off at the end of the day, while still looking fabulous.

    Heels can be a great way to jazz up a trouser suit, but make sure you are comfortable.

    The Perfect Purse

    A purse is a must-have accessory for every occasion, and a trouser suit is no exception. You should look for a purse that matches your trouser suit, and that has plenty of room inside for everything that you need.

    A clutch bag is perfect for weddings, allowing you to carry all you need without weighing you down.

    Jewelry

    Jewelry adds a touch of glamour to any ensemble, and a trouser dress is no different. Make sure that whatever jewelry you choose fits perfectly with your trouser suit, ensuring that it doesn’t distract from the outfit.

    Final Thoughts

    There’s nothing wrong with choosing a trouser suit over a cocktail dress, but you’ll need to know how to accessorize it properly.

    By following our guide above, you’ll soon find that dressing up the perfect trouser suit is easy and fun – and will ensure that you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

  • How to DIY a photo booth
    29 September 2022

    Photo booths can provide hours of entertainment for your wedding guests, but once you have factored in travel costs, prints and the photo booth itself you could be looking at spending £500 on one. Here are our tips to DIY your wedding photo booth to save you some serious cash.

    There are a few options available and they will depend on your budget and what you already have available to you.

    Simple Booth

    Simple Booth is a free app available to Apple device users, although it works best on an iPad. Fully customisable, you can have your photo booth set up in just minutes. There are so many options with Simple Booth for customisation – you can place a “logo” (or a picture of yourselves) on each photo, you can change the layout of the photos, apply filters and even change the border colour of the photos. Once taken, you can save them to your camera roll, share them or even print them from your iPad to a nearby wireless printer. If you choose to use Simple Booth then make sure that your device is fully charged so that you don’t run out of battery.

    Party Photobooth

    Available for Android devices, Party Photo Booth costs £2.20 to download from the Google Play Store. Similar to Simple Booth for iOS, this allows you to fully set up and customise your photo booth photos within minutes. Once the images have been taken, they can be shared on Facebook or uploaded to Dropbox. There isn’t an option currently to print the photos out from your device connected to a wireless printer.

    Digital Camera

    Using a camera is another inexpensive way to create a photobooth for your big day. A DSLR would be best, but any digital camera would work if you are on a budget. The downside to using a camera is that you will need someone to take the photos all night. You can nominate someone to do this or place a sign with instructions for your guests.

    Backdrop

    Creating your backdrop for your photos can seem daunting, but there are plenty of cheap and easy ways to get this made. Once you have decided where your booth will be going you can cover your background in wedding gift wrap with a nice print, fabric (nicely patterned duvet covers can look great), make streamers with tissue paper or even paper chains hanging down.

    Tripod

    Whatever device you are using for your photo booth, having a tripod will help to keep your device sturdy. It also helps to distinguish your photo booth area from the rest of your wedding. You might need to purchase a case for your device to fit onto the Tripod – these can be found cheaply on eBay or Amazon.

    Charging

    If the device you choose to use runs off battery power then consider either plugging the charger in or bringing spare batteries for your wedding. It would be a shame for your photobooth to run out of juice before the end of the night. You can easily cover the plugged in charger with some clever decoration placement.

    Printing out your images

    If you want your guests to have their photos printed to take away with them, you will need to find a suitable printer complete with ink and photo paper. Expect to pay anything between £50 – £100 for everything you need including a new printer.

    Props

    The list of props that you can provide for your photo booth is neverending. Scout around your house for anything that you can use as props, such as sunglasses, scarves, hats and anything else you think will be suitable. Pound shops also have a wide variety of items that you can use, from wigs to feather boas. There are also tons of printable photobooth props to cut out and enjoy. eBay also have a great variety of props with a great price – you can expect to get over 50 props for under £5.

    Instruction sign

    Instruction signs will tell your guests how to operate the photo booth and remind them that the photobooth is there for use. There are so many ways to create your sign – you could create one using a chalkboard and paint, print out a sign or even purchase one from Etsy or eBay.

    Are you considering having a photo booth at your wedding? Or if you are already married, did you have a photo booth? Do you have any more tips to share about DIYing your photo booth?

  • This Professional Soccer Player’s Wedding Featured Blush to Berry-Hued Ombré Flower Clouds
    29 September 2022

    Primary school teacher Josephine married Tim, a professional soccer player for FC Heidenheim. “International Love” was the theme of their wedding, which took place in Germany. The couple love to travel; Tim originally played in Belgium and proposed to Josephine in Cape Town, South Africa. Their beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony featured an aisle decorated with beautiful ombré floral arrangements that included a variety of baby’s breath, carnations, fanned roses, and delphinium. The couple’s Dalmatian was given the special role of ring bearer. A “dinner under the stars” reception took place in a beautiful transparent tent, decorated with a ceiling of fairy lights. The reception tent was decorated with pretty blush and berry-hued flower clouds and floral table decorations that continued the gradient color theme. Guests received luggage tags as a nod to the couple’s love of travel.

  • 5 things to splurge on for your wedding
    29 September 2022

    There’s a lot going on at the moment to give everyone a moment to pause and think about their finances – and a wedding is already a big, but fabulous, investment … so do you really need to go wild on spending more? No, absolutely not and we have lots of ideas about where to save money on your big day without spoiling the impact for you or your guests. But we also know that there are a few things you should not cut back on for your wedding. Every couple is different and wants something different for their wedding day, but here are five things that we suggest you consider if maybe not going splurging, then at definitely not scrimping on!

    Photography

    Even the most camera shy amongst you will appreciate having good wedding photographs to look back on. Some couples are opting to forgo the photographer all together and ask their guests to take pictures on their cameras or phones. However, these shots cannot compare to a professional, wedding photographer’s photos. An experienced wedding photographer will know how to shoot you both in the best light, how to stage those all important shots and how to edit your photographs after the wedding for the best results. They will blend into your day and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. They will also most likely have an assistant with them, meaning that if one camera fails there are still photos from your big day.

    You can still save money by ordering your own prints, photobook and canvas after your wedding. Websites like Truprint and Snapfish will allow you to create all sorts of items with your wedding photos, from simple prints to a large canvas. It does take a few hours to get all your photographs uploaded and if you want to make a photobook then expect to spend a couple of hours arranging your photographs.

    The venue

    Wherever you choose to get married, whether it be a registry office or a luxury lakeside location, spend your money wisely here and don’t be afraid to splurge. You might want a location that looks stunning in photographs or just somewhere simple to say your vows. Make sure that the venue you choose has enough space to accommodate the guests you are planning to invite and splurge on making the ceremony and reception locations look stunning. You can save money by DIYing as much as you can, buying second hand and roping friends in to help.

    The catering

    Catering can take a huge chunk of your overall wedding budget, but there is a good reason for this. You don’t want your guests to go hungry, and feeding them good quality grub shows them how much you appreciate them attending your wedding. It doesn’t have to be a posh three course meal with ingredients you can’t pronounce, whatever you chose to serve your guests, be sure to look for caterers who use high quality, local produce.

    If you chose to do the catering yourselves then bear in mind that most wedding caterers will also provide staff, glassware, cutlery, crockery and table cloths in their prices. So whilst the cost might seem high, consider that sourcing all these items elsewhere will be both an added cost and an added headache that you don’t need.

    Music

    When you think about wedding music, don’t just think about your evening DJ or band. You can have music during your ceremony, during the drinks reception, during the wedding breakfast and for the evening entertainment. Splurging on your wedding music doesn’t mean spending lots of money – in this case it can also be taking the time to create various playlists to use throughout your day. Your wedding venue may have a speaker you can use (a small hire charge might apply) to plug your iPhone/iPod into. Make sure you have an aux cable, just in case, which you can pick up from Poundland. Another top tip is to have the music saved on more than one device, in case one runs out of battery on the day itself.

    The honeymoon

    After all the hectic wedding planning, and the big day itself, your honeymoon allows you to have some much needed time together. Whatever your honeymoon budget, whether you are staying at home or going somewhere exotic, make sure that you have a few extra treats for you to enjoy together. It could be a lovely meal out or a couple’s massage.

    Whilst this list should give you some idea of where to splurge on your wedding day, remember that it is your wedding day, and your vision is most important. Are there any items listed here that you scrimped on instead? Or what did you splurge on for your big day?

  • 15 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Wedding Planner
    28 September 2022

    Hiring your perfect Wedding Planner is a very important decision, so we have written out the 15 most important questions to ask a wedding planner to assist with this process! Your wedding is one of the most personal + meaningful events you will ever plan, so it makes sense that you would like to hire a professional to make sure you, your fiancé, + your loved ones are actually enjoying the experience, that you have the day you have always dreamt about, and that you get to fully take in each & every moment on your wedding day! Why would you want anything less?!

    Whether you hire The Simply Elegant Group, or another fabulous Wedding Planner, we want to make sure you feel fully prepared by giving you the list below of the most important questions to ask a wedding planner during the hiring process! Always remember: enjoy the process, take in every moment, and go with your gut on every decision – it’s your day, it should reflect you & what you want!

    Our SEG Wedding Planner assisting the bride for the perfect photo! You truly do not have to worry about a thing the day of your wedding!
    Here are the 15 questions to ask a Wedding Planner during the interview process: 1. Are you available for my date?

    This will be the first question you will want to ask before anything else! Your time is precious, and you will want to know if they are available for your date before any further questions need to be asked. You don’t want to “fall in love” with a planner to only find out that they are not available for your wedding date.

    2. What planning packages do you offer? What do they include?

    It is not always clear on what packages each planning company offers on their website, or what is included in each package. It is important for you to describe what exactly you expect from a wedding planner, and then ask if they provide a package that would cover your needs. If they do not have something that exactly fits your planning expectations, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they could build a custom planning package for you.

    For example, here at The Simply Elegant Group, we have (6) different planning packages, ranging from what most call a Day-of Coordinator, all the way through a Full Service/Full Wedding Weekend Planner. We also are able to build custom packages for couples, and have many A La Carte options that you can add on depending on your needs + budget!

    3. Can you work within my budget?

    Before researching Wedding Planner potentials, you will want to know what your top budget number will be for your wedding day. Two questions you will want to ask during your initial planner meeting will be: Will your services fit well into my budget? Are you able to assist me with planning a wedding with my vision, for my total budget amount?

    4. What planning paperwork/organizational tools will you provide us when planning the wedding?

    Before signing, you will want to ask what organizational tools/programs do they use to organize all of the details for your wedding day. Do they provide you with a timeline? A checklist? A Vendor Information sheet? A seating chart template? (we do.. and so much more!). You will also want to ask when you will have access to the planning tools as well!

    5. What do you require in order to book your services?

    Do they require a signed contract? How much do they require for a deposit? What is the payment schedule/When is the final payment due?

    6. Do you have a preferred vendor list? What does this mean for you & choosing your needed vendors?

    One of the best reasons to hire a wedding planner is because they usually have a list of incredible vendors that they can highly recommend to you. If you have done any research on wedding vendors on your own, you will see that there are thousands of choices for each vendor category, which can be very overwhelming. Your planner would only recommend vendors that they genuinely love working with, because not only do planners want their clients happy, but they want to work with people that they can trust & know that will do a great job (which in turn, makes our jobs so much easier)!

    One of the best questions to ask a Wedding Planner regarding vendors: Do they have relationships with vendors that would offer you an incentive just because you are their client? We do! CLICK HERE to see our incredible list of very talented vendors for each of our branch locations!

    7. What vendors will you assist me with booking based on the package I am interested in? What does the vendor booking process look like? (if applicable)

    Most planning companies will offer at least 1-2 packages that include them assisting their clients with booking some or all of their needed vendors. Based on the package you are interested in & what you still need to book at that point, you will want to ask them what the planner’s process will be to assist & book your remaining vendors!

    8. Since I am needing assistance for booking my wedding venue(s), what does the process look like for this? (if applicable)

    Are you hiring your wedding planner from the very beginning & want their assistance to find your dream wedding venue(s)? You will most certainly want to talk about this during your initial conversation so you can fully understand your planner’s process, and how exactly they will help you with booking this very important part of your wedding day!

    9. Who exactly will be my assigned Wedding Planner? – What is their background/experience?

    If you are speaking with a company that has multiple Wedding Planner choices (like ours), you may want to ask who exactly they are thinking of assigning to your wedding/who is available for your date? If it will make you feel better, you could also ask to set up a time to chat with that specific planner before signing the contract to make sure it is a great fit!

    When interviewing a company/planner, you may want to ask about the planner’s background/experience, and if they have done a wedding at your venue before (even though the great wedding planners could do a wedding at any venue sight unseen – so not a make or break question, but still nice to ask).

    10. What happens if for any reason you/my assigned planner are unable to be there the day of the wedding?

    The best wedding planners will do anything & everything to be at your wedding once committed, however, things we cannot control do come up: sickness, funeral, very personal event that cannot be missed (sister’s wedding for example). So to bring you comfort, you should ask your potential planner their back up plan just in case anything like this does come up and they are unable to be there the day of your wedding.

    11. How many hours will my planner be there the day of my wedding, and what can we expect him/her to do that day?

    What to expect on your wedding day is a very valid question to ask a wedding planner. How many hours will they be there based on the package you select? What do those hours usually cover? Will they be there for my rehearsal the day before? What tasks do planners usually handle the day-of the wedding? You will want to know all of these items up front so you know what will be covered on the wedding day & what to prepare for!

    12. How many people should I expect to be there from your team the day of my wedding?

    Now that you have figured out how many hours your planner will be there for, you will want to know who exactly fro their team will be there the day of your wedding. Will it be your planner + 1 assistant? Multiple assistants? Anyone else to ensure that everything will be handled & will run smoothly?

    13. For the DIY Couples: If I am planning on providing some of my own centerpieces (for example), is my planner able to set these up prior to/strike at the end of the night?

    If you are planning on providing any DIY items that may seem a little complicated to set-up/strike (examples: centerpieces/ceremony arch/hanging elements/etc), this will be important to discuss with your potential planning company up front so they can verify this ahead of time to see if it is included in your package, if you need to add this on as a la carte item, or if you will need to figure out another way these items can be set-up/collected.

    14. Are you able to share with me examples of weddings you have done in the past?

    If you are interested in seeing the weddings they have planned before, ask them to send photos of a few past weddings you could view (they should be able to refer you to their instagram page, and/or they have an easy link they can send, like we do HERE)! Even better, ask them to send you any photos that they may have from past weddings at your specific wedding venue! This can be fun to see, & help you start envisioning your own wedding day!

    15. What challenges have you faced with weddings in the past, and how did you deal with them?

    This question will keep your potential planner on their toes. As we all know, things will happen, but what matters the most is how the planner deals with them. Hearing this should bring you comfort knowing that you will have a planner that can handle it all, and you will not have to worry about a thing the day of your wedding! If you have an uneasy feeling after hearing their answer, like we said in the beginning – trust your gut! xo

    Are you considering hiring a wedding planner for your big day? First of all, congratulations on your engagement + this very exciting time in your life! Secondly, we would absolutely LOVE to connect with you to answer all of these & any additional questions that you may have to see if we are the perfect fit! CLICK HERE to schedule your free consultation today! xoxo

  • All You Need To Know About Taking A Pregnancy Test At Home
    01 October 2022

    Becoming a mother is something most women desire. Missing your period is one of the first signs of becoming pregnant, isn’t it? However, most women now also depend on at-home pregnancy test kits to check if they are pregnant. While your doctor can perfectly guide you through the process, most women go for a pregnancy test kit at home before booking their appointment. These kits are super easy to use and are one of the easiest ways to check if you have conceived or if it is just a false alarm. Now if you are new to this whole process and have all the how, when and what questions, then we have got you covered! Here is a full-fledged guide to answer all your queries and help you out.

    Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Taking A Pregnancy Test At Home: When Should You Take A Pregnancy Test?
    • Missed Your Period?

    Your first cue to check whether you are pregnant or not is when you miss your period. Well, we know missing your period could be quite scary if pregnancy is not on your mind. Sometimes your period gets delayed due to various reasons like stress, travel, hormonal changes or even medicines. So, if you miss your period, it is an at-home check up to be certain if you are pregnant or not. The best time to take the pregnancy test is a week after your period date is due. Taking a test too early or just a day after your due date can often lead to false negatives.

    • If You Have Had Unprotected Sex

    If you have had unprotected sex and/or missed your period, this is your cue to take the pregnancy test just to be sure. It is advised to take the pregnancy test after waiting for at least 7 to 12 days after having unprotected sex. This helps in getting more accurate results because by this time, the implantation has already happened. So, your body produces enough Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone which can be easily detected in your urine which helps to indicate a pregnancy.

    • Are You Trying To Get Pregnant?

    If you are trying to get pregnant, you can always follow the 7 to 12-days rule for testing. To get the most accurate result, take a pregnancy test after 21-days of having unprotected sex. In some cases, pregnancy tests can be used even before you miss a period.

    • Look For Symptoms

    Ladies, you can always take an early test if you experience a few of these symptoms. Some early signs of pregnancy include soreness and tenderness of your breasts, especially around the nipples, constant fatigue, nausea, food aversions or frequent urination. Another sign is stomach cramps. Implantation can also produce a feeling like menstrual cramps. In early pregnancy, you may feel this discomfort and think your period is just around the corner, but then it never comes. These are a few symptoms to look out for, if you feel any of these then it’s time to take the test.

    How Does An At-Home Pregnancy Kit Work?

    Most of the OTC (over the counter) pregnancy tests usually are done by testing your urine for the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – HCG hormone. This hormone is only present in your body if you are pregnant. The HCG hormone is released when a fertilized egg is attached outside the uterus or to your uterine lining. So, based on if or not the egg is attached to your uterus, the pregnancy test strip indicates whether you are pregnant. Most commonly, the pregnancy strip shows ‘+ or -’ and in some cases ‘| or ||’ lines.

    If you get a positive (+ or ||) result, you are pregnant. This is true no matter how faint the line, color, or sign is. If you get a positive result, you may want to call your doctor to talk about what comes next and book an appointment to get it doctor-checked. In very rare cases, you can have a false-positive result. 

    Here are 7 weird things that happen to every couple during sex.

    What Is The Right Way To Use A Pregnancy Test Strip?

    Using a pregnancy kit at home is quite easy. But let’s go in depth and learn how to do it right! A pregnancy test strip is usually a plastic device that has three parts: a urine well, an opening that displays the test results and a plastic-shielded region. So, to get the most accurate results by using the strip the right way, you can follow these two easy-breezy steps –

    1. Urine Collection

    Don’t directly pee on the strip as it would surely be messy and might not land up exactly on the urine well. So, collect your urine in a sterile disposable cup or a bottle.

    Note: It is best to collect a sample from the first morning pee.

    2. Stick Usage

    Most of the at-home pregnancy test kits come with a disposable plastic dropper. This dropper is meant to transfer a couple of drops (mostly 1 or 2 drops) of the urine from the cup to the urine well on the strip. Once this is done, all you gotta do is wait for five to ten minutes for the results. (The time of waiting is usually mentioned on the kit and differs from brand to brand.)

    Image Source: Very Well

    Note: This method is most common for the majority of the pregnancy test kits available in the market. However, it is still good to read the instructions on the kit carefully to check if the steps match before taking the test.

    How To Analyze The Result?

    So, after waiting for a few minutes, the pregnancy test will show you the result. There are four possible outcomes of this, here is everything you need to know –

    1.     Two Lines Or A ‘+’ Sign

    If you see two lines or a ‘+’ sign, then congratulations, you are pregnant! You must then book an appointment with your doctor and confirm the same with a blood test.

    2.     One Line Or A ‘-’ Sign

    A single red or pink line on the strip indicates you are not pregnant.

    3.     No Line

    A blank strip with no lines can mean that HCG hormone is not adequately present in the urine to indicate a clear result. It can also indicate that the test was invalid and must be retaken again after a few hours or days. An invalid test can often occur for a variety of reasons. Some reasons include using the incorrect procedure, using an expired kit, spilling too little pee, or simply because the test was defective. In this scenario, retake the test using a different kit.

    4.     False Positive/Negative

    Although pregnancy test kits are quite accurate, sometimes, they may indicate a false positive or negative result. In case you have a false-positive, it could be a result of the presence of blood or protein in your pee. Certain drugs, such as anticonvulsants, hypnotics, tranquilizers and fertility drugs, could cause false-positive results. It is always advisable to confirm it with a blood test suggested by your doctor.

    Also, take note of these first night tips for grooms to reduce stress.

    How To Make Sure Your Pregnancy Test Kit Result Is Accurate?
    • Clean Hands

    While handling a pregnancy test kit, it is always best to ensure your hands are clean as dirty hands can interfere with the accuracy of the result. It can contaminate the strip and may lead to false positive or blank results. Also, make sure your hands do not come in contact with the urine that you are about to drop on the urine well of the strip as it may tamper the results.

    • Pee On The Mark Correctly

    If you are not using a sterile bottle or cup to collect the pee, it is best to make sure you do so only on the pit-like area marked for it. If there is an accidental urine splashes on the other areas, it can lead to a blank result, and you may have to take the test again.

    • A Follow-Up Test

    In case your test comes negative, always follow up on another pregnancy test. Make sure you repeat the test after 3 to 4 days to know the status. You can either try the same brand or switch to another one.

    • Picking The Right Time

    As previously mentioned, the ideal time to take the test at-home is after 7 to 12-days of having unprotected sex. However, if you have irregular periods, then the best time is to take the test is three weeks after your sexual intercourse.

    We hope that all this information comes in handy and is helpful!

  • Aishwarya Rai & Trisha Krishnan’s Stunning Looks From PS-1 Promotions
    30 September 2022

    For our wedding day, there’s no one we look forward to more for inspiration than our very own Bollywood divas. More so, when they’re promoting their movies and show up to events looking like an absolute diva they are! Recently, Aishwarya Rai and Trisha Krishnan are promoting their upcoming movie PS-1, a period action film directed by Mani Ratnam. The leading ladies have been showing up to promotional events in gorgeous Indian wear, which we are sure brides-to-be would love to draw inspiration from! Find below the details of all their looks from PS-1 promotions styled by Ekla Khani

    Aishwarya Rai

    For the first leg of promotions, Aishwarya Rai opted for a red Anarkali suit by Manish Malhotra replete with intricate zardozi work all over. She paired the outfit with a simple polki set, her signature hairstyle parted in the middle, and glowing makeup with well-rounded eyes and dark nude lips. The suit came with a satin dupatta which the actress let loose on the sides. Her other looks also came from designer Manish Malhotra’s collection. One was a royal blue suit hand embroidered with a floral aesthetic. It came with a sheer dupatta, also bedecked in minimal handwork. She resorted to earrings, bangles, and blue bindi to complete the look. As for the third look, she opted for an ivory Anarkali ethnic suit. She paired it with a small bindi and kept the rest of the styling, both jewelry and makeup, minimal. 

    Designer: Manish Malhotra

    Trisha Krishnan:

    Trisha, on the other hand, stole the attention of 5 different ethnic looks, four of them saree and one of them Anarkali. The first of them was a gorgeous Ritu Kumar creation in pink with intricate zari work and a full-sleeved blouse. The actress paired the saree with Kundan and gem jewelry by Kishandas that also included a mang tikka. Next, she was seen in a floral Anarkali coupled with minimal styling – a perfect breezy look for brides between their main functions. This was followed by a sheer stone grey saree done using time-honored techniques and handcrafted material. It’s one of those looks which you can carry as a newlywed or as a bridesmaid, it’s both modish and traditional and will definitely draw tons of compliments. 

    To promote her movie in Bangalore., Trisha joined the rest of the cast of PS-1 in a sheer maroon saree with embroidered floral work and thread. She skipped the earrings and instead opted for emerald earrings by Kishandas for her jewelry. Beauty-wise, she opted for a clean base, a bindi, nude lips, and lightly-kohled eyes. Just one day before the release of their film, the entire cast gathered for their last promotional event in Chennai where Trisha stunned in a yellow saree with sequin work paired alongside minimal styling for a surreal look.

A conventional choice that’ll also impress your saasu maa and neighbor aunties. You can style it with a chandbali maang tikka and earrings as well, or go ahead and pair it up with a choker set and open wavy hair. The unmatched finesse of this saree makes it our favorite Karva Chauth outfit from the list. 




    #10 Red Anarkali Suit!

    Another tomato red outfit that’s conventional and timeless for any newly married woman. Red is the color for Indian brides, so you can never go wrong with it. Play safe and still gather gobs of compliments by choosing a red anarkali suit as your Karva Chauth Outfit. Purchase here from Kalki Fashions.  




    #11 Banarasi Karva Chauth Outfit

    There are some Indian textiles that have grace and charm written all over them, like Banarasi. There’s just something about a pure banarasi weave, they grab your attention instantly. Even Anushka wore a banarasi red saree for her reception and looked like a million bucks. Don’t worry, we aren’t recommending another Sabyasachi outfit here. It’s another designer, based in Varanasi, named Tanya Singh. Her company Kostaga creates handmade benarasi couture, and isn’t it such a perfect pick for your first Karva Chauth. Here are two of our recommendations from her collection. 




    #12 Lehenga Set With A Jacket!

    Miheeka stepped out in a red banarasi lehenga with a jacket for a magazine shoot and we couldn’t help but stare at her. She looks lovely as always. We just love her glimmering silver jacket that’s such a modish addition to her otherwise simple lehenga look. 

    The lehenga set is by Jayanti Reddy, You can shop for her collection here

    #13 Chikankari Yellow Lehenga Set

    Kareena always gives us the best of style inspiration. Her outfits always reflect chic style that’s effortless and easy to carry. Recently, she was seen in a yellow chikankari outfit and it went straight to our Pinterest board. She teamed her attire with a low ponytail hairstyle and a simple pair of earrings. It’s such an easy-peasy design, you can even source the cloth and get it stitched. The outfit is by Faabiiana, Kolkata. 





    #14 Pastel Pink Saree By Manish Malhotra

    Miheeka wore a stunning pastel pink saree by Manish Malhotra as a newly married bride and we think it’s a superb inspiration for Karva Chauth outfit. If you’re someone blessed with a flat stomach like her, add a belt to your saree look as well. The belt defines the curves and amps up the saree silhouette to a new level. MM’s sarees are priced around a lakh or so. 

    #15 Simple lehengas by Vasansi

    Vasansi is a reputed store based in Jaipur. Their collection is not only gorgeous but also affordable. Their last year’s collection was absolutely FAB! Striking colors, conventional style and quality fabrics – that’s all Vasansi represents. Here are our favorite picks from our collection for your first Karva Chauth. 

    They do have a very wide range of lehengas though and a functional, responsive ecommerce website. Check out their collection here. The blue lehenga is priced at Rs.15,500/- and pink one at Rs.21,500/-. 





    #16 Bandhani Sarees!

    Bandhani is another Indian textile that looks utterly charming on Indian women, especially those who are married. Bandhani textile originated in Gujarat, Rajasthan side and is native to this area. So if you’re visiting any of these states, don’t forget to buy yourself a beautiful Bandhani attire. Anyways, these sarees are from Vasansi. If you’re based in Jaipur though, we’d suggest you explore the city market as you can get cheaper pure bandhani sarees there. Vasansi bandhani is expensive, primarily because of the brand reputation. 

    Shop for their saree collection here

    #17 Printed Lehenga Set

    This printed lehenga set was bride Shania’s sangeet outfit. We always admire brides who wear a simple lehenga on their Sangeet function. It’s such a smart choice, considering sangeet nights are all about rocking the dance floor. Choosing a basic outfit also means you re-wear it anytime, so it is an economically viable pick as well.

    We think a demure, sophisticated lehenga like this one, when paired with right jewellery, would make for a remarkable outfit for your Karva Chauth. 





    #18 Sharara Sets!

    For newlyweds who want a no-hassle Karva Chauth dresses option, there’s nothing better than a sharara set. The first is a leheriya sharara set by Kalki Fashions (priced at Rs.9540/-, shop here) and next one is Faabiiana Official. Second one is an apt choice for anyone who is bored of reds/ oranges in their attire and would rather wear a fresh white & yellow combo! 

    #19 Green Saree

    A green saree would look anything but basic for your Karva Chauth celebrations. It’s such a refreshing color, so we fished out two of its shades to inspire you. The first one is by Gaurav Gupta and was worn by newly wedded Richa Moorjani (Kamala from Never Have I Ever). The good news is GG just launched his online store, here’s a link to his store. 

    The next one is worn by Minnie Rohilla (Roadies fame, now an influencer). She has some more saree looks on her platform, affordable yet splendid. Check out her Instagram account here





    #20 Plain Red Lehenga

    The woman in this picture needs no introduction. As an Indian fashion influencer, based in Amsterdam, you can always trust Masoom Minawala to give us the best fashion inspiration. In this picture, you can see her clad in a plain red lehenga set with a cape-style dupatta and just a silver necklace as her jewelry. Doesn’t it make for an excellent choice for your Karva Chauth outfit? We think so! This pristine lehenga is Charu and Vasundhra





    #21 Indo-Western Designer Outfits

    While going through Ogaan India’s Instagram feed, we came across these idyllic Indo-western outfits and thought to ourselves, what an amazing option are these as your Karva Chauth dresses? So here we are! Created by designers Anamika Khanna and Anju Modi, these super gorgeous pieces will make heads turn (especially of your husband) and would keep you at comfort as well!
