Wedding Elegance

A wedding is whatever you want it to be. It can be the fun and funky atmosphere that suits both you and your partner’s personality to a T. Or it can be the most elegant affair there ever was. But, whatever your style, elegant or not, we believe that every wedding should have a touch of it. It’s a day meant for celebration, class, and above all, fun! Don’t think that because you’re adding a little bit of elegance to your day, that you’re going to compromise on the style that you truly want. It’s just about making sure that you have the most fabulous day that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives. So, we want to show you a few ways that you can ensure your special day has a bit of elegance, have a read on to find out more.

Before The Day Elegance

So, the first thing that you need to try and master is having a bit of elegance before the day. Before the actual day of your wedding, all you will be doing is planning to make sure the day is absolutely perfect, and one of the biggest thing to try and sort is your dress. Now, you might already have an idea in your head of what style you might like, but that will all change when you go to the dress shop. Once you actually see yourself in a range of different dresses, your mind will definitely be turned. We believe that to add a bit of elegance to your dress, you need to focus on being simplistic. Long lace sleeved, with a satin plain white long finish is the perfect kind of dress for a bit of elegance. The arms are a beautiful touch that’s a firm favourite among brides to be all year round.

On The Day Elegance

You’ll have built up this moment in your head for so long, that you can’t even remember what it’s like not to be nervous. If you want our advice, the best way to calm those nerves is to get there in style. If you take a look at companies such as Seamless Chauffeur, you’ll be able to see a company who will chauffeur you to your wedding in complete class and style! It’s something a little different to the traditional wedding car, and it can really help to make you feel special on your special day. As for your partner, he could go for something similar!

After The Day Elegance

Some would say that what happens after the wedding day is most important. If you haven’t thought about a honeymoon, then get looking now! There are so many tropical and luxurious locations that really do scream elegance. Whether you chose to go on your honeymoon straight away, or a few months down the line, you should definitely have something in place before you head down the aisle. It is a chance for you both to enjoy married life before the chaos of real life sets in!

Make Your Wedding Day A Party To Remember!

People want different things out of their wedding day. If you want a demure, grown up event, that’s totally fine. But what if what you really want, is to party with the people you love the most all night long? Then you need to set out to make your wedding day a party to remember!

Here are some pointers and ideas that will help you. Take a look and see what you can do:

Choose A Theme

A theme can help to set the mood of your wedding. There are all kinds of themes out there, and you can let your imagination run wild as you take your personalities into account. What do you think will make everybody want to get up on the dance floor? Your theme doesn’t have to be cheesy, but it could definitely be a lot of fun – such as a 70s or 80s themed throwback party!

Give Everybody Props To Play With

Give people props to play with and they’ll make for some interesting accessories and photos. Hopefully, they’ll get everybody on their way to have a lot of fun, which in turn should make them want to get up and party the night away.

Set The Tone With Your Own Wedding Dance

If you want to get people on the dance floor, you should try to set the tone with your own wedding dance. Many couples are breaking the rules in terms of wedding dances these days; they no longer have to be slow and romantic. You can mix a variety of dance styles and music styles to create something all your own. It’s a good idea to end on an upbeat note to make everybody want to follow your lead on the dance floor!

Hire The Right DJ

The right DJ is key to your wedding party. You’re going to want a DJ that will understand and listen to your tastes, as well as somebody who can read a room and get people on their feet when the time is right. Make sure you do plenty of research on your DJ. Finding one that will play tracks to get people dancing doesn’t necessarily mean finding one who will play the cha cha slide. You can set up meetings with DJs like Benny Smyth, who will ask plenty of questions about what you want from your wedding party and the kind of music you like to ensure they get it right.

Keep Everybody On Their Feet For Longer

How can you keep everybody on their feet for longer? Coffee and refreshments! Make sure there are things to take the edge of alcohol consumption, such as coffee, snacks, and other refreshments. You might even want to have some of those roll out dolly shoes available for ladies who want to take off their heels.

Make Your Favours More Personalised

Your personalised favours could include some painkillers, a sachet of coffee/tea bag, and anything else you think your guests will appreciate the morning after your big day!

As you all know I just love nice things and that is even more important when it come to your Wedding. Having those little luxury items that set the scene for your wedding, your wedding invitations are what sets those first impressions for your big day and we all know that first impressions are very important.

Setting the scene for your wedding

So many Brides think that they are just not an important part of the wedding, but for me they are. When a wedding invite arrives, I am always excited to see it, what it feels like, looks like, the colours, the patterns, the style. Each and every one of those things are the starting point for your wedding. It gives your guests the first look at what your wedding colours will be, what the theme may be, modern, art deco invitations, rustic, hollywood glamour. I think it helps your guests to start feeling as excited about your wedding as you are.

After you have set your date, planned your colour scheme and theme, then you can start looking at the extras. Finding a company to make your invited that are just what you are looking for isn’t always easy as so many are set colours or style, where you just edit the existing text. I mean that’s great if that is what you are looking for.

However, Basic Invite is anything but basic, they offer a fabulous range of wedding invitations. Each one can be changed and edited to become your dream wedding invitation.

A wedding website?

Something I hadn’t heard about, but is apparently becoming more and more popular with the happy couple, is to produce their very own mini website, just for your wedding. Upload the details of your venue, the menus, gift lists, hotels, transport and anything to help your guests. You could also get them to add photographs after and you can share your favourite wedding photographs. It’s an amazing idea, not sure why I did not think about it, Basic Invite offer 180 different website pages that are as customisable as their wedding invitations.
