Don’t Forget These Wedding Day Details!

Wedding planning can be an all-consuming task – finding the perfect venue, dream dress, and amazing invitations all take time. However, once you have some of these big decisions out of the way, you can focus on the wedding day details that can make your big day really shine.

  • Entrance and exit: Think about the first and last impressions your venue will make on your guests. Wow them as they come in with décor as they walk up to your venue, and give them something special as they leave, such as a favor table.
  • Hidden extras: Your guests won’t just sit at their tables, so the décor shouldn’t stop there. Include décor, such as flowers, in areas that your guests will visit throughout the night. This includes bathrooms and the bar. Adding little touches here keeps them in the wedding mood wherever they go.
  • Signage: This can be a huge help to guests who don’t know their way around, and can fit into your décor. You can point your guests where they need to go, and label places so they know they’ve arrived. Don’t rely on your venue’s signage, and use it as a chance to really transform the venue.

When you’ve gotten the major parts of planning out of the way, you’ll have more time to spend on the details. One great way to do this is to come to one of ourSouthern California bridal shows, where you’ll meet the area’s best wedding vendors all in one place!

Three Ways to Be a Great Wedding Guest

If you're planning your own wedding, you might be focused on your nuptials. When you're also invited to other weddings, it can be a struggle to turn off the wedding planning part of your brain. Here are three ways to be a great wedding guest.

  1. Don't compare! When you attend a friend's wedding, you might want to compare what she's done with what you have planned. Try to leave the comparisons for when you get home, though. Instead, just enjoy the day.
  2. Don't talk about your wedding! Focus on the couple of the day, the same way you'd want to be the focus on your big day. Even if you'll have guests in common, keep the day focused on the newlyweds.
  3. Learn what you can about the guest experience. You want to make your wedding as great for your guests as possible. When you attend other weddings, take note of what made you feel special, welcome, and a part of the day. After the wedding, think about how you can build these elements into your wedding.
Of course, the best way to be an excellent wedding guest while planning your own wedding is to get all your planning done with Southern California's best wedding vendors. A great way to do this is to come to one of our upcoming bridal shows!

4 Ways to Have the Perfect Fourth of July Themed Wedding

The Fourth of July might be over for another year, but if it has you inspired, there's no reason it can't be the theme for your wedding day. Here are four ways to have the perfect Independence Day themed wedding.

  1. Red, white, and blue color palettes are an easy way to bring the holiday theme to your wedding day. Don't feel like they have to be bold hues, though. Off-tones, faded hues, and other shades of the colors can be a great alternative.
  2. Stars and stripes can also be brought into your theme without even needing to include a single flag. They can be part of your decor, cake decoration, or even your bridesmaids' dresses.
  3. A themed menu is a perfect way to get your guests in the holiday mood. You don't need to have a relaxed menu, though. Ask your caterer for grown-up versions of your barbecue favorites.
  4. Fireworks are always a great choice, but if your venue doesn't allow them, add the excitement in other ways. Indoor-safe sparklers are a fun addition to your cake, but you can also use your floral arrangements to create the fireworks look.
The best way to create an amazing theme wedding is working with fantastic Southern California wedding vendors. Come to our next show to meet and book all the vendors you need while having a great time!

Did You Begin Planning Before Engagement?

Wedding planning before engagement has become a big trend, with a recent survey showing that 59 percent of single women have already started. This follows on a survey earlier in the year that showed that 40 percent of brides admitted to visiting wedding websites before the proposal.

The reason for this early planning is generally an attempt to reduce stress, but it doesn't always work that way. Some women have also said that they've scared off previous boyfriends because of their early planning. Early planning can also get you too locked into a set idea of what your wedding has to be. This can leave you without flexibility that can leave your fiance feeling left out and you feeling frustrated.

One surefire way to reduce the stress of wedding planning is to come to a Bridal Showplace show. You'll be able to meet some of Southern California's best wedding vendors all in one place, meaning you can get lots of planning done in a single day.
