The key to making the most out of your budget is to plan your honeymoon ahead. Once you have decided on wedding date keep your eyes open on vocation deals and special offers. Moreover, you will get the chance to book a perfect room in your dream hotel before they are sold out. Talk with your fiance about your priorities and than decide what you can live with our without.

4.Planera tidigt och gör efterforskning
Nyckeln till att göra det bästa av din budget är att planera din smekmånad långt innan. När du väl har bestämt dig datumet för bröllopsdagen är det bra att hålla ögonen öppna för specialerbjudanden. Vad mer är, det här kan ge dig chansen att boka en perfekt rum i din drömhotell innan det är slutsålt. Prata med din fästman om era prioriteringar och bestämm vad ni klara er med och vad ni kan vara utan.

5. Consider the alternatives
While all-inclusive resorts come with ‘mandatory fun’ their inclusive honeymoon packages afford you the luxury and a carefree experience. On the other side, a simple bed & breakfast hotels have significantly lower prices and you still get to spend your honeymoon at your dream destination. The most important thing is to weight your priorities and find out what is more important to you – luxury stay or dream destination.

5. Tänk på alternativen
Medan all-inclusive resorts kommer med “obligatorisk roliga aktiviteter” erbjuder deras inclusive smekmånads-paket lyxig och bekymmerslös upplevelse. Å andra sidan har ett enkel Bed & Breakfast hotell betydligt lägre priser och där är du ju fortfarande vara på din drömdestination. Det viktigaste är att väga dina olika prioriteringar och ta reda på vad som viktigtigast för dig – lyxhotell eller en drömdestination.

David & Rebecka, Rustic Glamour

David & Rebecka’s wedding was truly idyllic and beautiful. Classic and timeless elegance combined with rustic details, definitely set this wedding apart.

David surprised Rebecka at her birthday in November 2010, at home of Rebecka’s parents, at the place where she grew up.

-‘It was so romantic, says Rebecka. David stayed in Stockholm and said that he can’t go with me to Åmål but he secretly traveled to my grandmother day before and then, early on my birthday, he sneaked in and surprised me with the rest of my family and propose me in front of everybody!These were tears of joy! ’

Planning

Rebecka has dreamed a lot about her wedding day – she knew how she wanted it but it was difficult to get everything she has dreamed about and she didn’t know where to start. David & Rebecka met wedding planner Janet Robertson from Scarlett Weddings at Wedding Fair in Grand Hotel. They loved the way that stand was decorated – a lot of fabric, crystals trees, diamonds and stunning floral arrangements.

-‘That is exactly how I imagined my wedding!’ ,exclaimed Rebecka with a big smile. ‘Soon after our first meeting we started planning. Janet was amazing, she always had new ideas and we really enjoyed working with someone who knows so much about weddings and at the same time is very passionate about it.’

-‘The entire planning process was incredibly fun, stress free and enjoyable, thanks to our wedding planner!

Ceremony

Ceremony was held in a small church where even Rebecka’s parents got married. David’s father is Serbian Orthodox priest so it seemed natural that they would be married by David’s father along with another priest and a bishop.Ceremony was very intimate and personal.

Reception

Reception was at the Folkets Park, a charming and old open-air dance floor with a great scene from the 1930’s.

-‘Since there was a high ceiling, we chose to have white fabric from the middle of the roof to the sides and this gave a soft and beautiful  touch to our wedding venue. We hung a dramatic chandelier in the middle of the venue and that gave a luxury touch to the entire room.’

Theme and Decor

-‘When it comes to the theme, we decided to go for Rustic Glamour. We wanted all tables to look different but at the same time in incorporated in our wedding theme.’

The theme overall was very romantic and combined with soft tones – white, gold, silver and old-fashioned pink. Golden plates were used to give an elegant effect on the tables. Some tables were decorated with lace and pearls while others had diamonds and crystals. Each table had it own centerpieces a sophisticated combination of high crystals tree with hundreds of hanging crystals, beautiful floral arrangements, bird cages filled with flowers and elegant candles in silver and gold. Every piece was carefully chosen and created by Scarlett Wedding Team.

-‘We liked the idea of having a lot of candles that will provide a romantic atmosphere. Led spotlights around the room changed their light during the evening – We used yellow filter during the dinner and then just before our first dance we changed it to purple and our venue magically turned into nightclub style!It was incredibly glamorous and beautiful with a personal touch.

Details

Pearls, lace, crystals, ribbons were all around the venue –  tied on the chairs, gift boxes and place cards. All the tables were named after something that meant a lot to David & Rebecka, such as places they have visited together or where they first met.

-‘Anyone who knows us, knows how much we love candy so we really wanted to have a Candy Bar at our wedding.’

Candy Bar contained vases and bowls in various shapes filled with Rebecka’s favourites candies, chocolate fountain with strawberries and Marshmallows.

Rebecka’s advices:

  • Hire a wedding planner so you can enjoy the whole process up to the wedding day and during the wedding day. You have to be absolutely relaxed at your wedding and you don’t have to think what’s happening around you.
  • Videographer-The best memories that we have from our wedding come from our wedding video. It’s important to choose carefully so ask to see previous work and note if you would like to have a special song in the background.
  • Photographer – Talk to your photographer before your wedding and specify what kind of photos you would like to have. Point out special persons that you would like to be photographed with.
  • Save your photos from the wedding in a memory box. This photos will always remind you on your wonderful day.

Bridal jewellery

Once you have found your wedding dress, flowers and perfect hairstyle it’s time to start thinking about jewellery. The most important rule that you have to remember is do not over do it, and let this shiny little things to over shine you on your wedding day. Follow this golden rules to ensure that you look absolutely stunning while walking down the aisle.

Rule number 1: Match jewellery with your wedding dress

Pick your wedding dress first and choose your bridal jewellery to complement the look. If your wedding gown is modern, traditional or simple, chose something that reflect the same style. If you will wear a simple dress, play with jewellery and consider sparkling necklace and earrings set. On the other side, if your dress is elaborate, be careful while choosing jewellery and opt for more simple peace. Set of small pearl earrings and bracelet may be a perfect choice for you.

Try to match a colour of your wedding gown with your jewellery. If your wedding dress is white, it will go well with platinum, pearls and crystals. Ivory wedding dress will be perfect in combination with gold jewellery.

Rule number 2: Think about neckline of your dress

Strapless dress is very popular this season, however a lot of skin will be visible. To complement your look we are suggesting choker necklace with drops. You will avoid too bare look and if you are brave pick a colours from your bridal bouquet and try to match it with your necklace. V or sweet heart-shaped neckline would look perfect with V and Y-shaped necklace with simple chain and small drop. If your dress contains high neckline consider using few fresh or silk flowers in your hair or even bridal tiara.

Rule number 3: Hairstyle is important

If you considering wearing tiara at your wedding, think about hairstyle. Longer hair with up-do hairstyle need to be combined white larger tiara in order to balance the look. If you have short hair, pick lighter and delicate tiara that doesn’t require lots of pinning to hold it in place.

Hair colour is important when it comes to your hair jewellery. Crystals are more noticeable in darker hair so if you have light hair think about colourful peace.
