I just got engaged! Now what?

Congratulations! You must be so very excited! First read over the benefits of having a wedding planner. I recommend them for people who:

-work a full-time job
-live outside of the state they wish to marry
-are easily frazzled and frustrated
-are confused about wedding etiquette
-want a professional to handle the details of your special day

Set a date, if you haven’t already! Then schedule an appointment with a planner to see if you two are a perfect match.

Can I afford a wedding planner?

Most planners have packages and rates that will accommodate any budget. A professional wedding planner is worth their weight in gold simply because they will assist you in budgeting your finances, are up-to-date with wedding trends and already have vendor contacts.

They also provide worry-free, cost-effective, and time efficient planning. The planner will eliminate costly mistakes, while still working within your budget.

Why should I hire a wedding planner?

So many people confuse the services of a wedding planner as a luxury for only the rich. Nothing could be further from the truth. At the present, most bridal couples and their parents work outside the home, leaving little time for wedding coordination. They simply do not have the time to call vendors, decipher contracts and the endless other details for a perfect wedding.

Your planner will act as your liaison throughout your planning process, and they will have various contacts for all of your needs.

Weddings Gifts that Speak from the Heart

Everything from crystal ornaments to intricately detailed wine glasses

As the Maid of Honour at my sister’s recent wedding, I had many, many duties to fulfil. Amongst the hustle and bustle of organising the hen’s night, the kitchen tea, the bridal shower and getting myself in shape to fit into my dress, I almost completely forgot to buy her and her new hubbie a wedding gift! Thanks to the wonders of the internet, I was able to find the most perfect and fitting gift online at SeagullGifts.

Stocking a huge variety of exquisite gifts that are purpose-designed for weddings, SeagullGifts is the ultimate wedding gift store. In the end I found it hard to choose just one present! Browsing through their products I fell in love with their crystal figurines and ornaments, all hand-crafted by experts from across the world, as well as their intricately detailed glassware such as Pewter Harlequin Champagne Flutes or set of 6 tumblers – everything a newlywed couple would need.

On top of these SeagullGifts stocks a wide range of romantically themes gifts such as dramatic crystal rose ornaments, wedding ring crystal shells, and other beautiful figurines that are a lifelong keepsake for the couple walking down the aisle.

After I finally chose the gift I felt best represented my love for my sister and her beau, I was a bit worried that the delivery would not arrive in time however, I soon learned SeagullGifts delivers Australia wide (for FREE might I add!) within a really fast timeframe. So in the end I had everything needed for the big day, and my sister and her new husband really loved and appreciated the beautiful crystal gift I gave them from SeagullGifts.

Thanks SeagullGifts, you not only saved the day, you made it that much more special!

Create a romantic atmosphere with a beautiful garden wedding

On your special day what better way to express your heartfelt emotions than in the surrounds of a magnificent garden. Weddings are the most celebrated event in a relationship’s history so make it memorable by incorporating nature and all the wonders of the environment.

Garden weddings are unique in that they break the traditions of conventional church weddings while retaining the romance and ambience that an indoor wedding creates. Giving you more freedom when it comes to outdoor wedding ceremony decorations such as flower arrangements, design of the ceremony and other personal touches, garden weddings are the best way to celebrate your relationship in a way that truly reflects you.

Utilising all the beauty that Mother Nature provides, garden weddings provide a great backdrop to the celebration being held and the possibilities of the future ahead.

One of the best parts of having a beautiful garden wedding is the beautiful photo’s that you will get of the wedding. A garden is the perfect backdrop for a wedding in my opinion and www.rollingcanvas.com.au are the experts at garden wedding photography and videography If you’re looking for someone to capture those special moments.


Why Our Wedding Tasted So Good

The catering that sparked a frenzy amongst our guests

Last month my husband and I were lucky enough to be able to tie the knot in front of all our beloved friends and family in a beautiful ceremony on the outskirts of Melbourne. The day was perfect, sun was shining and champagne flowing as our guests gathered at my grandfather’s estate in Red Hill.

I had been planning this day for months and wanted everything to be perfect – not because I am a ‘Bridezilla’ but because your wedding day only comes around once, so I wanted it to be as memorable for our guests as it would be for us. Everything was organised in regards to the theme, decorations, and setting, now came the food.

Everyone knows a good wedding is characterised by its food. That’s 99% of the reason people RSVP after all; a night of free food and booze! I wanted my wedding catering to exhibit everything my husband and I love in food, while at the same time providing tasty and exciting options for our guests.

I came across Diamond Blue Catering when a colleague of mine raved about them after her daughter’s 21st, so decided to check them out. After doing some research and comparisons, the team I came across at Diamond Blue were by far the most superior, and were 100% flexible to my needs as the size of my wedding fluctuated a bit when my husband’s family in Spain we’re unsure if they could make it.

The menu options they presented us with were first-class, and their food packages covered everything we could want. From gourmet canapés to greet our guests at the reception, to delectable grazing style platters as the evening ran on, round after round of food was greeted with an excited and surprised approval from our guests.

The team at Diamond Blue Catering took the time to ascertain our taste preferences, and moulded a menu to include that as well as some favourites and gourmet surprises. The food was by far one of the highlights, and every guest was impressed with the service they received from the team at Diamond Blue. Most of all my husband and I – we couldn’t have asked for a better event and look forward to the rest of our lives forged on such a successful day!
