Gold

Gold and ivory wedding theme is timeless and impeccable choice! Gold combined with neutral colours such as ivory, cream and blush always looks sophisticated at a wedding. We believe that is all about details so we played with pearls, brooches and satin ribbons.

Spring Wedding Inspiration

Spring is reserved for delicate pastel shades- blush pink, rich cream, soft lilac, sky blue, mint green and soft silver. Combination of this colours makes fresh and modern spring colour scheme. We used glass vases filled with flowers on different levels, mirror  that casts a glow onto the reception table and floating candles.

How to choose your wedding shoes?

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.

-Marilyn Monroe

We know that it’s not easy to find a perfect pair of shoes to say  ‘I do’, but once you find it, you will fall head over heels in love with it! Shoes can be a real beast if you chose the wrong pair. In order to prevent any possible complication, read the advice bellow.

  • Choose your shoes before your final wedding dress fitting. Your tailor need to know how high your heels are so he or she know how to adjust length of your dress.
  • Make sure that the shoe really fits you. Try them on and spend some time in them in the store, because shoes that feel comfortable at first, may not be after five minutes . If possible, wear them at home and return them if they don’t fit you very well.
  • If you are not used to very high heels choose pair that suits you the best. Remember that  you have to spend whole day in the same pair of shoes, so make sure to check heel height before buying it. Stand up and try to raise yourself on your toes so there’s at least an inch of space under the heels. If you can’t do that, choose pair with lower heels.
  • Practice at least once day for about week before your wedding. Spend 15-30 minutes wearing your shoes at home. Your frets have to get used to the new shoes. Pain is bad sign. If they don’t feet, return it to the store, no matter how much you like it. You have only one pair of foot and shoes can be replaced.

Planning your wedding.

Before reading this post make sure that you have read this one (Just engaged?).

You have been for a while getting inspiration from the biggest blogs and websites, you know your priorities and you have created a budget. Well, what’s next?

We recommend to use an estimated timeline of 12 months for the planning. This will help you through the whole amazing process. Take good note on your wedding notebook!

1 year to 9 months before the wedding:

planning- 1 year 9 monthsImage Source:Pinterest

• Make a preliminary guest list and adjust it to your budget.

• Organize the engagement party.

• Hire a Wedding Planner. Meet her and her team in person and let her help you to smooth the wedding planner process.

• Choose the location and the date. Visit personally the venues you selected, choose your favorite and reserve it. Do it according to your budget and the guests you have on your list. This is pretty important. Depending on the season of the year and the reputation of the venue, they can take reservation up to one year in advance! Make sure you get the day you want by reserving early. Leave the menu open so you can try it later on.

• Reserve the date you wish to get married if you are getting married in a church. In Sweden, if you desire to get married in the same venue, a vigselförrättare can go there and officiate the ceremony. Your Wedding planner will give you more information about this.

9 to 6 months before the wedding:

planning 9-6• Create a website for the wedding with all the details your guests will need.

• Meet the vendors. Photographer, cake, flowers, music, stationery, hair and makeup artists and all the other services you wish to include. Keep their contacts in a file. Note that vendors will demand a certain amount in advance to be able to book their services so you might want to write checks or prepare cash.

• Actualize your budget accordingly the services you want to hire.

• Buy the rings.

• Start looking and purchase the wedding gown, shoes and jewelry.

• Start looking and purchase the groom’s tuxedo.

• Start looking and purchase for bridesmaids dresses.

• Finish the guest list.

• Send the Save the Date.

• Start designing the invitations. Especially if you are counting with a calligrapher!

• Start planning your honeymoon.

6 to 3 months before the wedding:

planning 6-3

• If your guests have to travel abroad send the invitations with 5 months so they have time enough to book tickets and hotel. If the wedding is in your country, you can send the invitations 3 months before the date.

• Book hotel rooms for out of town guests if necessary.

• Meet the Baker and purchase the cake.

• Meet the DJ, band or musicians and select the music.

• Meet the photographer and make sure you provide “must” pictures. We recommend to do a pre-wedding photoshoot in order to get used to the camera and feel comfortable with the photographer. These pictures are extraordinary beautiful in your wedding website!

• Meet the florist and book your wedding day, also, select the flowers for the centrepieces, bridesmaids’ bouquets, boutonnieres and your bouquet.

• Draw a preliminary schedule of your wedding day.

• If you are planning a rehearsal dinner, visit the place, check the menu and book it.

• Start looking and purchase your rehearsal dress.

3 to 2 months before the wedding:

• Meet several make-up and hair artists and try their services before the wedding. Take pictures of yourself to compare and book the one you liked the most.

• Make all the honeymoon payments or get the Visa (if necessary).

• Organize a bachelorette party (if your maid of honor is not already doing it!).

• Finish the wedding day schedule and send it to all vendors.

• Buy favors, sitting cards, candles and other decoration if it’s necessary.

1 month before the wedding:

Just engaged?

Congratulations!

You are going to plan your wedding and you are not sure how to start. Keep calm. Married women all over the world have gone through it and had the same feelings, and they all triumphed! Here are some tips that can help you to start:

– Throw an engagement party! This is the best moment to do it! Make sure you include people who will be on your wedding list.

– Get inspired. Blogs, bridal websites, Pinterest and Instagram will help you to get the inspiration you may need for your big day. There is a big market full of ideas waiting for you. Sounds overwhelming… But it´s so much fun!

– Go to Bridal Shows and Wedding Fairs. Do not miss the opportunity to visit one of them if you have it. Bridal Shows are perfect to make new contacts and get a full perspective of vendors and prices in your area. Tip: in Stockholm, Bröllopsmässan in Grand Hôtel is our best recommendation! You can check the dates and prices here.

– Choose the theme that suits your personality as a couple. There are so many different styles shabby chic, vintage, rustic, modern, monochrome… You can always include some shades from your personality as a couple in your wedding. You will always remember it and it will make your wedding unique.

– Set priorities. Once you got all inspiration and you are ready to start the real planning, make a priority list of services. Start for those that are essential.

– Create a budget. Be honest with your mate and be realistic. It is pretty easy to desire every single thing the market offers (we know!) but you may want to create an honest budget before signing any contract. It could be the case that your budget does not allow the wedding of your dreams, in that case, you could prepare a saving-plan or postpone the wedding date to avoid visiting your bank.

– Search for help. It is a very common thought among brides to believe that they can do everything by themselves. Wrong idea. Whether you have a good friend that has some experience organizing events or you would rather count with a professional on your big day, our recommendation is: don’t try to do everything alone! And if it is possible, let your beloved ones enjoy every single aspect of the day with you rather than working on your wedding day.
