Informing the wedding guests about the wedding registry is usually a daunting task for most couples. That’s because they don’t want to make the guests feel that they are asking for wedding gifts while realizing that the guests willing to attend the wedding are definitely interested in finding out more about the registry. That’s because a registry makes it easier to find the perfect wedding gift. Here are just a few tips that will help you inform your guests about the registry in a proper and elegant manner.
A great idea involves creating a wedding website. This is probably the simplest and most effective way to write down your registry information. Nowadays, these wedding websites are popular among couples and are considered convenient wedding accessories. Having at your disposal plenty of tools designed to help you create an organized and beautiful wedding website, makes it extremely easy to have a wedding website. You should also know that on this website your guests will have the possibility to read details about the entire event, so the guests who forgot their invitation at home will be even more grateful for its existence.
You also have the chance to inform your guests about the wedding registry in a more traditional manner. I’m talking about adding an insert to the wedding invitation you send to your guests. This solution is quite simple and elegant and delivers important wedding information without changing the format of a traditional wedding invitation. On this additional insert you should simply print the URL of your wedding website in order to let your guests know where they can find additional information about the registry. This insert can also include attire details, rules about children and driving directions. However, if you know that many of your guests aren’t fond of using the net you can include the registry details precisely on the mentioned insert. I also need to add that you should make available for your closest friends and family members detailed registry information because the guests might phone your parents for additional details.
The bridal shower invitations are also considered, according to the wedding etiquette, proper ways to inform your guests about the registry. No matter, if your maid of honor organizes a traditional or a modern themed pre-wedding party, this is a good time to talk about the wedding registry. That’s because the party is organized by someone else, so you will not be the one informing the guests about the registry. This useful information is precious for the guests and can be elegantly printed on the bridal shower invitation.
The wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Frances Spencer was an important event for the UK Regal family and people. The happy event took place on July 29th, 1981 at the famous St Paul’s Cathedral in London. The wedding was and is still considered the “wedding of the century”. It was watched on TV by more than 750 million people from all around the world. To mark this special event of the Regal Family, July 29th is nowadays considered a national holiday date.
Prince Charles and Lady Diana had known each other for years, but their relationship became serious only in the summer of 1980 when they were invited at a country weekend. After several dates in London, Prince Charles asked Diana to marry him on February 3rd, 1981 after only six months of being together. The engagement became official on February 24th, 1981 after the bride to be chose a gorgeous engagement ring embellished by a blue sapphire surrounded by 14 diamonds. The ring was evaluated at £30,000 and was recently given by Prince William of Wales (Diana’s first son) to his bride Catherine Middleton.
Going back to the Prince Charles and Diana wedding, I must also mention that at the event were invited more than 3,500 people. St Paul’s Cathedral was chosen instead of Westminster Abbey because it has more seats and allows a longer procession on London’s streets. The ceremony was presided by Most Reverend Robert Runcie, Archbishop of Canterbury and Very Reverend Alan Webster. The bride wore a gorgeous wedding dress made of taffeta and adorned with lace, embroidery and more than 10,000 pearls. Signed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel, this puff ball gown had attached a 25-foot train made of taffeta and antique lace. Lady Diana also wore the heirloom Spencer tiara. On the other hand, the groom wore his naval commander uniform.
The list of guests included Europe’s crowned heads as well as Lady Diana’s and Prince Charles’ families and closest friends. I must also mention that the happy event was attended by the King and Queen of Belgians and Bulgarians, the Queen and Prince Henrik of Denmark, the crowned Prince of Greece, the princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly and prince Albert II and many other important royal families. All the British royal family members and relatives were also invited and attended the wedding ceremony along with various General Governors of important countries from all around the world including Canada, Barbados, New Zealand and Australia. The wedding reception took place at the Buckingham Palace and involved a number of only 120 guests.
If you’ve been invited to a wedding and you don’t have any idea what you should wear I personally recommend you to buy something that suits your personality and is comfortable to wear. You should also ask the bride if the wedding is casual or formal, so that you can choose something appropriate for the situation. You should also know that for a stylish wedding outfit you will also need proper shoes to complement your appearance. In order to provide you with a few ideas regarding what you should wear at a wedding in terms of shoes I’ve selected a few stylish options that you should definitely consider.
For instance, if you decide to wear a dress with neutral colors you should definitely consider matching it with a colorful pair of shoes and a colorful bag. These accessories will definitely complement your appearance. I personally recommend you the Emmy colorful shoes which are made of leather and are available in various colors. These stylish shoes can be bought in various colors and can have heels that measure between 5 and 9.5 cm. The Gussie bag is also perfect to match with a neutral color outfit because it’s colorful and made of natural silk. It measures 21 x 12 cm and impresses with a classic and elegant envelope design. On the other hand, if you decide to wear a floral or dramatic print dress you should consider buying neutral shoes and a bag less colorful.
For a more elegant wedding outfit you should definitely consider purchasing the Zara Slingbacks which are proper for any wedding even it the event takes place in the spring or in the winter. These shoes are made of suede and are available in various colors and sizes. They are pretty simple and feature heels that can vary between 3.15 and 8 cm in height. For this stylish pair of shoes you will have to pay around $80.
If you’ve been invited to a casual summer wedding you should consider wearing a strapless dress which can be purchased in various colors and sizes. If you decide to wear the red version of such a dress you can match it with different shoes depending on the shoe style you like. One of the shoes alternatives that you have for this dress is represented by the Mallory Square Flat shoes which are pretty comfortable to wear. These shoes are made of vegan-leather and are adorned with a colorful bow. You can also consider a high heel alternative and end up purchasing the Cece L’Amour Barbara wedge sandals.
At a wedding people care about the clothes you wear, so you should consider dressing up even if you are the type of man that likes only jeans and t-shirts. The suit that you end up choosing should be suitable for the type of wedding you are invited to, so you should pay attention to the details regarding guest outfits listed on the wedding invitation.
So, if the wedding invitation says that you will be attending a formal ceremony and reception you should immediately start thinking about a tuxedo. However, not all tuxedos look the same, so you will have to make a choice based on your personal likes and dislikes. What I think it’s most suitable for a formal wedding is the black traditional tuxedo but that doesn’t mean you can’t also consider an elegant suit. You should also give some thought to the possibility to wear a bow tie or a necktie as accessory to your formal tuxedo.
If you are invited to a wedding that is scheduled to take place in the evening, you should go for a suit that’s black or navy and a well-tailored option is order to not feel under dressed because such events tend to be pretty classy. If you want to stand out from the crowd you should limit yourself to choosing a more colorful tie. The situation is a little less complicated if you are involved in the wedding party, because in such cases the unwritten rules say that your suit should follow the color and style of the groom’s suit. Those rules even specify that the tie’s color should match the colors chosen for the wedding.
If the wedding to which you have been invited is scheduled to the take place in the summer, you should consider only light-colored suits and a more casual cut that’s known to be comfortable when dealing with warm weather and outdoor spaces. That’s because most summer weddings tend to be organized outside. If the summer wedding you’ve been invited to is actually a beach wedding, you should consider fabrics such as linen and cotton that are known to keep their owner cool.
By contrast, if you are invited to a fall or winter wedding, you should consider darker colors as well as heavier materials. In this case you are supposed to make sure that the suit you choose can keep you warm because depending on the area where the wedding is taking place, winters can be pretty chilly. What I recommend is a comfortable wool suit that also looks elegant.
If you have been invited to a wedding, you need to care not only about the outfit that you will be wearing but also about the hairstyle that you will match with that outfit. The good news is that stylists have advices in store for both long hair and short hair women, so you will be able to find a style that works for you easily. To help you in your search I have put together a list of the long hair hairstyles that are most suitable for a wedding guest.
A first idea is to go with a straight and relaxed long hair look. This is a look suitable for women with long hair because it doesn’t take as much time to create as an updo and is compatible with most types of dresses. It’s something you can do at home, by yourself, just a few hours before the wedding to which you have been invited.
Also recommended are half-updo hairstyles that are versatile and make good use of the long hair available. A possibility is to divide the hair available into two sections. You should then tie the first section using a clip while letting the second half (the one underneath it) flow freely on your shoulders. You can even add a few curls in order to obtain a more sophisticated look. However, this is not the only possibility available, so you should consider adding a touch of your own.
A third idea is to rely on a simple bun. It’s not wise for a wedding guest to go for a hairstyle more complicated than that of the bride, so you should try to keep things simple but elegant. The simple and traditional bun is one of the basic up hairstyles that can be created using long hair and can be kept really simple or accessorized with decorations that match the dress. However, I still think it’s best to go for a natural look.
If you are into more playful hairstyles, you should consider a side ponytail that works great for any person with long hair. This is also a simple option, especially if you decide to not add any hair accessories. What I must also mention is that this look works great especially in the case of those who have natural wavy hair. But even if you don’t have such hair you can reach the same type of look with the help of a few curls. In most cases the limit is your imagination, so feel free to add your personal touch.
Any invitation to a wedding is exciting. The only problem is that as guest, you don’t want to ruin the day of you friends and loved us, so you need to do your best to rise to the occasion. That means you will first of all have to choose an outfit that is suitable for the type of wedding you are going to. In some cases, it’s fairly easy to make a decision but when it comes to more special ceremonies like those involved by an Indian wedding you need to be much more careful when it comes to the attire you choose.
If you are going to such a wedding you should first of all keep in mind the basics. First of all you need to make sure you choose an outfit that’s not completely black or completely white, because Indian weddings are all about joy and happiness, so they require colorful attires. If you are a lady in search of advices regarding the attire that is suitable for an Indian wedding, you should also make sure you choose a cut that enhances your silhouette without showing too much. That’s because Indian weddings are all about tradition and religion, so very tight and strapless dresses, for instance aren’t in the sprit of the celebration. Men shouldn’t be lazy and uninterested in choosing an elegant outfit either, because Indian weddings require them to look just as sharp as the ladies. So, if you have been invited to an Indian wedding you should forget all about jeans and t-shirts and go for a formal look. To finish off the look, especially if you are a lady, you should consider some accessories because the Indian culture treasures accessories as much as the attire itself. It’s best if you go for bangles or anklets.
What you should also know is that an Indian wedding includes more than one ceremony, so if you are invited to all ceremonies you will have to come up with outfits suitable for each ceremony. For example, if you are invited to the Haldi ceremony that takes place separately at the bride’s house and at the groom’s house, you will have to choose a simple outfit that you don’t mind getting dirty with the special paint used during this ceremony. In this case women should wear a simple dress while men are allowed to go with jeans and a simple t-shirt.
Bottom line, at an Indian wedding you can choose to wear a traditional sari or stick with tasteful western outfits and still not get it wrong.
We all love weddings but we all hate to deal with budgets and restrictions. However, if you don’t want to feel financially stressed by one of the most beautiful events in your life, you should still consider calculating the average cost of the type of wedding you are dreaming of way before you start making your dream come true. To do that you need to know that the average cost of a wedding depends mostly on the type of wedding you are interested in and its locations and on the number of guests that you want to expect.
If you aren’t that good with numbers, you shouldn’t get scared, because if you wisely use the resources that the Internet makes available, you will be able to determine that average cost without wasting any time. That’s because on various online website you will find wedding cost estimators that have you fill certain details in order to be as accurate as possible regarding the estimated cost of your wedding. For instance, if you already know that you are going to invite around 200 people, the average cost will end up depending mostly on the location and type of wedding that you would like to have. Obviously the cost is also influenced by the type of products and services that you choose. Unique items and professional support will always end up costing more.
Considering that so many factors are involved, all I can do in order to help you anticipate the cost of a 200-guest wedding is give you some examples of locations and a price variation that will let you know the minimum amount of money that you will have to pay for a wedding in that region as well as an amount of money that can make possible a more sophisticated wedding in the same region. For instance, if you are interested in having your wedding in Buffalo, New York, and you plan on inviting between 150 and 200 guests you should expect to spend between $21,902 and $36,503. On the other hand, a wedding in Beverly Hills California that involves between 150 and 200 guests can easily end up costing between $38,138 and $63,563. Now you see why the location of your wedding is said to significantly influence the average cost of a wedding.
However, you shouldn’t easily get scared by the average budgets involved, because the money spent can be easily kept under control as long as you are willing to make compromises and organize an affordable wedding rather than a glamorous one.
When you attend a wedding party as a guest, you have to know first which is the dressing code. In this way you will know how to build your look, from the clothes that you are going to wear to the makeup, shoes and accessories. And if you do not have any indications in the invitation, then it is clear that the wedding is a classic one so, you can feel free to choose the look that you desire.
Today I will not talk about clothes, but I will try to give you some ideas regarding the nail color that you can wear as a wedding guest. And I will start by telling you that you should have the clothes in order to be able to decide about the nail polish. Considering that you have already done this, I will tell you that the summer is the season of life. It brings us color, freshness, hot temperatures and love.This is why you will have to look just like a part of the nature and not to try to wear heavy clothes, or colors.
The first color that I have in mind is fuchsia. I know that this color has been there since forever, but this is one of those colors that can never be old fashioned. So, if you are wearing a pale pink dress, a white one, a cream one, or anything that does not have a powerful color, then you can definitely choose this shade.
If your dress is a very colored one then you can choose a white shade for your nails. You can decide to choose a shell white, or a mate one, depending on your taste. This is also a color which goes extremely well with green, red, fuchsia, pink, or even with floral prints or animal prints. Being a neutral color, you can adapt it really well at all your outfit ideas.
Another color which I suggest you to choose for a summer wedding is Peach. This color is also a very sweet one and it offers elegance to the hands. No matter if you have long nails or short ones, this is appropriate to be used. It also goes really well with a red dress, with a purple one, with an orange one and so on.
Other colors that are known to be appropriate for summer are: red, coral, hot coral, shell pink, hot pink and of course for those who are bold enough, there are those green, aqua blue and purple colors.
So, which one is going to be the choice for you?
When it comes to planning the wedding of your dreams, there are certain things you need to get done. You need to find the perfect wedding venue, the right flowers, the most beautiful dress, the rings and the invitations. Also, there is another important aspect you need to keep an eye on.
As with everything else, we cannot like all the people that somehow are part of our lives. We have friends and we have ex-friends and some people may not want to have certain persons at their wedding. There is no rule which states that people cannot attend church weddings if they want to, but if you really do not want someone to show up uninvited and be part of your wedding ceremony, you can always ask some of your friends to keep a keen eye and if they show up, make them leave.
As I already said, there is not written rule that allows couples to ban people out of their wedding ceremony, but there are of course, things you can do. The best way to let people know that you want them to be part of your wedding is by sending them a wedding invitation. Those who do not receive such a thing are sure that they are not wanted there. However, they can still show up uninvited. What do you do then?
Things are quite simple. If the person you do not want there in your wedding day shows up, even though they did not receive a wedding invitation, you can ask your friends to kick them out. Of course, you do not need to make a big fuss about it and your friends can ask nice those people who showed up uninvited to leave.
There is also another option. You can call the cops if you do not want someone to be there and they insist on being part of the most beautiful day of your life. Some of them might do it so as to get their revenge or out of pure pleasure. However, calling the cops is not the best option, as you will ruin your entire wedding and you do not want to have such bad memories about the best day of your life, do you?
The best thing you can do is to ask your friends to keep an eye on everyone that is part of the wedding ceremony and if they see someone that should not be there, they can ask them nicely to leave and stay away from the wedding.
