Elegant Destination Wedding Inspiration

Few weeks ago we had the opportunity to plan an elegant wedding in a charming oceanfront location nearby Lima and we felt in love with the decoration details. This wedding was all about flowers arrangements, flower centerpieces and a beautiful flower and foliage arch for the ceremony. The stunning venue did its part too, since all these elements combined with the location made everything even more perfect. Here I want to give you an idea of how the decoration details bride and groom choose really made a difference in creating the atmosphere they were looking for.

When I received the call from the couple, I immediately understood that they were looking for a special location and this is really one of a kind. That is why I proposed them this beautiful oceanfront villa with romans architecture pieces, a little pool and a beautiful garden area. I also understood they were looking for an elegant wedding with a Peruvian touch, so me and my team tried heard to propose them little but meaningful decoration details.

First, the charming and elegant arch! This was a super fluffy arch with foliage and flowers as ceremony backing. It was a great choice to have the ceremony in the evening under a beautiful sunset. The sunset light combined with the arch really created an outstanding atmosphere for unforgettable photos.

As I said above, this wedding was all about flowers. Apart from the arch, the beautiful flower arrangements at the center of the buffet table added an elegant touch to the wedding reception.

The bar was one of a kind with the beautiful eucalypt foliage backing, highlighted by hanging light bulbs. At the side of the bar we placed two big flower arrangements, to create a perfect symmetryThe effect was very elegant and romantic.

How to Design a Wedding Mood Board

wedding board

Nowadays planning a wedding could be a bit challenging, due to the enormous variety of existing wedding themes, trendy color palettes, wide range of flowers available, multiple table arrangements ideas, etc. That’s why we always suggest our couple to start from a wedding mood board, a collection of pictures from other weddings with ideas, colors, decorations they might like. You don’t know what a wedding mood board is? Ok, let’s start from the very beginning. A wedding mood board is the visual representation of your wedding, which should reflect your vision and inspiration. It should contain specific ideas, details and elements that must be included in your wedding design.

Making a mood board is not an easy task! We know that with Internet you have access to thousands of wedding ideas, wedding trends and so on, so you might need to spend a bit of time surfing the net and collecting ideas.

First step: questioning! Start asking yourself the basic questions, such as: When do I want to get married? Where am I going to get married? How many guests do I have? Among others. Try to answer these questions before designing your mood board.

Second step: choose your wedding theme, such as rustic, classic, glamourous, shabby, boho, etc.

Third step: it’s time to choose your color palette! Look into color palettes websites, there are many available. You can create your palette from an image, you have tons of options.

Fourth step: Once you have a clear the wedding theme and the color palette you can start selecting more specific ideas searching the net. Try to divide idea, that will help you narrowing down the selections you make. For instance, you can divide your search in categories: wedding cake, table flower arrangements, ceremony arch, table settings, flower bouquets, etc.

Fifth step: Once you have your first selection, try to narrow down the pictures you selected at first. For instance, if you have 5 flowers bouquet, reduce the selection to two options. I know this is not easy, but you have to try, otherwise you’ll end up having too many ideas on the table and this could be confusing.

Sixth step: create the mood board. You can use the tool you prefer, from Power Point to a simple Word, where you can paste the pics. Today we have other app and software you can use for creating your mood board. Pinterest is the one we use the most. It is very useful and efficient since you can share the board you create with your partner and work together. If you have a wedding planner, you can also share the board with him/her.

Seventh step: check everything once again and see if you need to make any change or cut some ideas. Kee in mind that less is more, so try to include very specific details.mood board wedding final

I think that the mood board is a very effective way to plan a wedding, it makes things easy for us and for the couple itself. You should try to stick with the mood board and try to analyze any new idea considering the mood of your board. I mean if you want a classic ivory peonies bouquet, but you are planning a glamorous wedding with red roses flowers arrangements, you should probably stick to red roses bouquet. So, this tool will definitely help you out in the planning process. Also, it will reflect your idea, what you envision for your wedding and you must share it with your wedding suppliers so that they have a real sense of what you want for your special day.

So now guys, you have a lot to work to do before sending your wedding planner your mood board! 🙂

Five Centerpiece Ideas for your Wedding Reception

featured image

Centerpiece is always going to catch the attention of your guests, so in this article I’m going to give you 5 tips for picking the perfect flower centerpiece for your reception tables.

1Looking at the color tones is essential, especially considering the venue you pick. It could be a beach wedding, an outdoor wedding, a hacienda wedding or a wedding in a Hotel ballroom, and there are color schemes that are more suitable for an outdoor wedding than for a wedding hosted in a hotel ballroom for example, so keep this in mind! You can certainly use light colors for your flower centerpiece for an outdoor or a beach wedding, and intense color tones if your wedding will be hosted in a ballroom.

Five Centerpiece Ideas for your Wedding Reception #2Also remember that the centerpiece plays an important part in your wedding photo session so try to combine it with other colors elements, such as your bouquet, details of your wedding dress, colors of your bridesmaids’dress, etc.

3The type of flowers to choose is also another detail you should consider. First of all you should get information on the types of flowers available on that season and in the country you decided to get married. As for Peru I always suggest to brides to opt for Peruvian flowers, which are exotic and very colorful. Brides usually love them!

Five Centerpiece Ideas for your Wedding Reception #4It´s not necessary to spend a lot of money in flowers, you can have a great result using a lot of greenery for example. This could be a good option if your budget is not so flexible.

Five Centerpiece Ideas for your Wedding Reception #5Flower vase is another element you should select, this choice is important since this complements how your centerpiece will look like. So consider the size, the color, the material and the decoration. All these details need to be in harmony with the venue and the color palette you chose.

How to plan the Perfect Father/Daughter Dance on your Wedding Day

View More: http://maikdobiey.pass.us/wedding-leigh-luis

The father and daughter dance is always a very special moment, when teary eyes are guaranteed. It is extremely emotional for the bride and her father, and all the wedding guests can feel the intensity of the moment. There is a high possibility that after this dance you will have to retouch your make-up, depending on the things your father tells you. Generally before this dance I always look for my make-up bridal survival kit, so that I have it with me in case the bride needs to fix her make-up.

But how can you choose the perfect song for this dance? In my opinion the right song for a father/daughter wedding dance needs to have the following elements: it has to be a sweet song, not romantic since this is not the man you just married; it has to be meaningful, which means that it has to recall memories and moments you shared with your father during your childhood for example; also it has to be a beautifully written songs with awesome words and melody; it has to deliver the following message: “I appreciate our relationship, you always took good care of me and I know you will always do, and if I am here today it is also because of you”. In other words this is not an easy choice to make at all.

You can choose the songs on your own, trying to surprise your father and all your guests or you and your dad can make the choice together. You can actually do it both ways, the most important thing is that you go for the right song.View More: http://maikdobiey.pass.us/wedding-annamarco

Here a couple of tips I came up with after the father and daughter wedding dances I have seen so far:

  • Use a shortened version of the song: your guests will love to watch you and your father dancing on the dancefloor but not for more than 2 minutes, since they will also be hungry after the ceremony. So, ask the Dj to prepare a shorter version of the song you wish to use for that specific moment.
  • Practice with your father: even if you think that the surprise factor would be great for your dad, I suggest you to practice before the wedding day to avoid any jitters and awkward moves. The best thing you can do is to ask for help to a professional. Remember that a choreographed dance always looks better.

  • Choose the song together: you can ask your father to give you some ideas because this song should reflects the love you have for each other and it should be meaningful for both of you. So it is important to involve your father in this choice too.
  • Use a medley: In case you and your father have different opinions on the song to dance, or you have two or three favorite songs, you can always create a medley, start form the slowest and peaked with the most vibrant song at the end. But remember do not make it too long!
  • Share the dancefloor: this is a good tip especially for those who feel uncomfortable dancing alone in the middle of the dancefloor in front of all your wedding guests. After the first minute you can ask the Dj to invite all other couples to join you and your dad on the dancefloor and you can also switch partners and invite your mom dancing with your dad for the rest of the song.

  • Be able to think about the next moment: we all know that this is a special moment and you and your father will yet few tears, but you got to be able to think about the next moment of your wedding celebration and have fun.

Finally, try to live this moment at the best, since it really means a lot to your parents, your mom will also enjoy watching you and your dad dancing on the dancefloor and you will remember it forever.
