First Wedding Dance Song Suggstions - Team Wedding Blog

First Wedding Dance Song Suggstions - Team Wedding Blog | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
Having trouble deciding what the first dance at your wedding should be? Don’t fret. There’s lots of great songs to pick from, and we’ve rounded up a few of the best to help inspire you. Review the following and enjoy: ‘For Once In My Life’ by Stevie Wonder ‘For Once In My Life’ is arguably one of Stevie’s best love songs, as it’s all about finding great love and knowing you’re stronger because of it. Lyrics include For once I have someone I know won’t desert me/ I’m not alone anymore/ For once I can say/ This is mine you can’t take it/ As long as I know I have love I can make it/ For once in my life I have someone who needs me…do they not sound like wedding lyrics? The song is also more uptempo if you’re looking to boogie instead of slow-dance. ‘Make You Feel My Love’ by Bob Dylan This Bob Dylan classic has been covered many times, most recently by Adele, though Billy Joel’s version is also tender and wonderful. The tune is all about what the person would do to make the loved one feel, well, loved! Lyrics include When evening shadows and the stars appear/ And there is no one there to dry your tears/ I could hold you for a million years/ To make you feel my love…beautiful, no? ‘At Last’ by Etta James The Etta James classic is a wedding favorite for many reasons, as it’s all about finding great love “at last.” Who that has found such love can’t relate? Lyrics include At last my love has come along/ My lonely days are over and life is like a song, oh yeah/ At last the skies above are blue/ My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you. Awwww. ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri A newer wedding song, this tune by Christina Perri was used as the theme to Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1, which features the wedding of the glittery vampire and his human paramour. Lyrics include I have died everyday, waiting for you/ Darling, don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years/ I’ll love you for a thousand more. If you feel like you and your partner have been together always, this song is a great choice. Additional Suggestions Additional suggestions include: ‘All Of Me,’ John Legend ‘Everything,’ Michael Buble ‘Better Together,’ Jack Johnson ‘I Won’t Give Up,’ Jason Mraz ‘Into The Mystic,’ Van Morrison

The Smaller Details and the Value of Wedding Favours - I Do Take Two | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
For those getting married for the second time, you will be highly aware of the incredible amount of planning and organisation that goes into a wedding. This previous experience will also be valuable in helping to ensure that everything goes smoothly and that it is a day that you, your partner and all your friends and family will never forget. The Small Details Although it is the large parts that inevitably take priority, such as venues, guest lists and the menu, many people getting remarried often notice that it is some of the smaller details which can really make the day something special and memorable. A few examples include the decoration of the church, the table centrepieces and the wedding favours. These details can inject colour, personality and charm into any wedding. The Value of Wedding Favours The importance of wedding favours should not be overlooked, as they are a way for you to show your appreciation to your guests for helping to make it such a memorable day.

Personalised Favours One terrific way to impress your guests and show your appreciation is with personalised wedding favours. Personalised presents are always well received and it goes to show that thought and effort has been put into the gift. Personalised wedding favour miniatures are a great choice, as you can get stylish labels made with their name on; this could include an image, the date, the name of you and your partner, as well as the guest’s name. a top tip is to get everybody’s drink of choice too. Favours like this can be purchased from suppliers like Just Miniatures. Whether they drink the beverage or not, they will be able to keep the bottle as a souvenir from your wedding. Creating a Memorable Occasion When you pay attention to the smaller details of the wedding, such as the favours, it can have a huge impact on the day and also show your guests how much you appreciate them being there. This is sometimes overlooked, but those that have married once before will be aware of just how important the smaller details can be and it is often these parts that you remember the most. Related

6 Tips to Planning the Perfect Honeymoon Cruise - I Do Take Two

6 Tips to Planning the Perfect Honeymoon Cruise - I Do Take Two | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
Your honeymoon is perhaps the most romantic holiday you’ll take as a couple and signifies the start of your married life together – no pressure! – which can make planning your honeymoon a little stressful. If you’re struggling to choose just one destination, then a honeymoon cruise could be the perfect option. Sail along the seas, enjoy fine dining and stop off and at a variety of exotic locations, while making memories that will last a lifetime. With that in mind, here are some tips to help you plan the perfect honeymoon cruise. Gift Registry Depending on the cruise you book, certain agents and companies offer their own honeymoon registry service. Rather than receiving mountains of gifts, you could ask that your guests instead put toward your cruise, meaning you can upgrade your room or enjoy gourmet dining, making your honeymoon all the more special. Consider Your Budget If you’re on a tight schedule or have a limited budget – let’s face it, weddings are expensive! – then you’ll be delighted to know that honeymoon cruises come in all lengths. If you can’t afford to splurge on a two-week luxury cruise, opt for a mini-moon on a long weekend cruise – companies like Planet Cruise offer a range of durations. Cater to your Interests While you may dream of cruising around the Med or travelling further afield to South Asia, cruises now come in all shapes and sizes. Do you love film? Are you obsessed with all things Disney? Or have you always wanted to go to Comic Con? There are cruises catered to all of these and many, many more! Make it Romantic Imagine arriving at your cabin to find a bottle of champagne, roses and chocolates waiting for you. Speak to your agent or cruise operator to find out what romance/honeymoon packages they offer, to start your honeymoon off in romantic style. Book Spa Treatments There is no better way to relax together than by pampering yourselves. When you book your cruise, make sure you enquire about the onboard spa treatments. Reconnect with a couple’s cruise with an ocean view, indulge in a wrap or facial, or take a relaxing soak in a hot tub. Marry Onboard Alternatively, why not combine your wedding and honeymoon? There are two options here: you could marry onboard your cruise, or arrange to tie the knot during an excursion. No matter which you choose, you’ll have the advantage of being able to start your honeymoon straight away! Related

6 Skincare Must-Have's For the Bride-to-Be - Team Wedding Blog

6 Skincare Must-Have's For the Bride-to-Be - Team Wedding Blog | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
For months leading up to the wedding, brides are prepping, pampering and planning. Before you start taking a peek at hairstyles and wedding day makeup though, you’ll need to focus on your skin and create a regime that makes for a clear and glowing look come the big date. And that all starts with the right products. For months leading out to the vow swap, you’ll want to gather up the right ingredients and take care of everything from your forehead to your décolletage. Take a peek at these 8 skincare must-have’s for the bride-to-be and snag what you need!   Facial Cleanser: Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser, $5.99 Target We’re big fans of Aveeno because it works with so many skin types, especially the sensitive ones. It’s light, it’s delicate and it gets out all the dirt from all the nooks and crannies. It’s important you start with the right kind of cleanser in building your skincare regime, so keep that in mind when shopping around. Cleansing Brush: Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, $89.50 Ulta   You’ll want to invest in a great cleansing brush. This one is a bit more affordable than others on the market but works just as great. It gets blood pumping throughout your face and neckline, pulling away the dirt, hitting hard to reach places and working nicely with any cleanser you choose! Anti-Wrinkle Cream: Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme, $6.51 Amazon It’s truly never too early to begin using anti-wrinkle cream, especially when you’re one that loves the sun. Stop wrinkles from worsening or happening with the use of a creme that will moisturize, soften and firms the skin. Under Eye Cream: Puff Off! Benefit Cosmetics, $29 Sephora Say goodbye to those bags for good with the help of the right under eye cream as well. Start using something that works, like Puff Off! from Benefit Cosmetics and clear away the darkness and puffiness before your big day comes to call. Acne Spot Treatment: Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Spot Treatment Cream, $9.99 Target You’ll want something on hand that will attack pop-up breakouts in a pinch – without flaring it or drying your skin out. Look for something light and natural, like this Burt’s Bees treatment! You don’t want redness or random pimples showing up on your wedding day. Eye Mask: Dragons Blood Eye Masks, $39 Ulta For when restless nights come to call or the stress of planning makes you look at tired as you feel, invest in the right kind of eye patch or mask that will rejuvenate you. No one will know the anxiety may be getting at you a bit if you have the right tools.

Top 5 Hen Night Bridal Games - Team Wedding Blog

Top 5 Hen Night Bridal Games - Team Wedding Blog | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
Whether you happen to be the maid of honour, a guest or even the bride herself, there is one re-wedding event you all can’t wait for, and that is of course the hen party. No hen party is complete without some obligatory fun and lots of games. It is also a great way to break the ice, get the celebrations started and ensure that the energy is kept high. If you have been tasked with arranging the hen party or are helping out with the hen party, make sure you have played at least one of these games. Jenga Hen Party Game Jenga is a childhood favourite for many but this hen party version is a little bit different. This hen arty game does take a bit of preparation and time, but it is really worth it. On each Jenga block get each guest to write down a truth or dare, then stack the Jenga up in a tower. Each hen must then remove a Jenga block from the tower and carryout the dare or truth. Try to keep it going, without knocking over the tower. Bride Bingo This hen party also takes some organising, but it works a treat whether you are having a night out on the town or are going for afternoon tea. Have all of your guests write down what gifts they think the bride-to-be will receive, as she opens them, mark them off  any present written down on your bingo card, guests that include bingo calls from the ultimate bingo dictionary definitely gets an extra point. Once a guest gets a five in a row then shout bridal bingo, the prizes can be silly like a cupcake or nail polish. Predictions This hen party game is sure to bring the fun factor and have all the guests mingling. It is only natural to speculate as to what the big day will reveal so why not do so all together.  Get all the hens to write down their predictions on a piece of paper; they can be as whacky or sweet as you want. As an example you could include anything from the first dance song to who will cry first. For each one they get right on the wedding day, each hen will get a prize or even a reward.

Rehearsal Dinner Etiquette Tips - I Do Take Two

Rehearsal Dinner Etiquette Tips - I Do Take Two | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
Planning the rehearsal dinner for your second wedding, and want to ensure it goes perfectly? If your first wedding rehearsal dinner wasn’t the dream experience you envisioned, review answers to the following frequently-asked questions and enjoy your second rehearsal dinner with your amazing partner: Who Do I Invite To The Rehearsal Dinner? This is entirely up to you! Etiquette dictates the wedding party and parents of the bride and groom must be in attendance, but if you want to invite a slew of other people who are coming to the wedding, feel free! If you want to keep it a parents-and-wedding-party-only affair, that is fine too. Making a larger rehearsal dinner guest list allows you spend more time with everyone, particularly those coming from out of town who you have not seen in awhile. My Partner’s Divorced Parents Hate Each Other. Do I Have To Invite Them? Honestly, it would be worse if you didn’t. Since the parents are hopefully mature adults, place them at tables on opposite ends of the venue and assume they will stay away from one another. If your partner has to have a little “talk” with them to sidestep any “scenes,” make it happen. However, a scene at your wedding rehearsal dinner would be extremely poor taste, so just invite them and move along with your plans. I’m Inviting A Lot Of People And Want To Host The Dinner At A Restaurant/Bar? Is That Okay? Yes! Many people host rehearsal dinners at favorite restaurants and bars, as they provide the ideal casual setting for letting everyone hang out and have fun. Bars and restaurants are also used to accommodating large parties and may be able to set you up with a private room. The wedding is always more formal than the rehearsal dinner, so do not worry that holding the dinner at your favorite lobster house is tacky. Do The Bride And Groom Make Toasts At The Rehearsal Dinner? Generally, no. You have enough to say and do during your wedding weekend, especially if you wrote your own vows. If you would like to do a toast to thank everyone for coming, go for it, otherwise allow others to make toasts, such as the maid of honor, the best man, and your parents. If you feel nervous, keep in mind no one is expecting you to be witty, just a person in love! Related

Save, Don't Stress! Three Fabulous Fashion Tips for Your Wedding Day - Team Wedding Blog

Save, Don't Stress! Three Fabulous Fashion Tips for Your Wedding Day - Team Wedding Blog | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
It’s no secret that brides-to-be are constantly scrambling to save money when it comes time to tie the knot: after all, the modern American wedding costs over $30,000 on average. The stress that comes along with planning a ceremony is bad enough; however, finding places to cut the cost of couture can be equally overwhelming. How can you find the perfect balance between looking fabulous on your big day and keeping cash in your pocket? Fear not. To battle the rising costs of ceremonies, brides have gotten craftier than ever when it comes to uncovering fashion hacks and keeping their budgets in check. Whether you’ve just gotten engaged or are thinking about tying the knot, keep the following fashion tips in mind to save money and look great on your wedding day. Shop Around Although shopping around may seem like a no-brainier, don’t neglect online options for purchasing your dress or wedding rings. Some brides-to-be may are naturally pensive about buying online; however, it’s completely reasonable to try on dresses or look at rings in-person before going digital. Doing so gives you peace of mind prior to your purchase. By doing your homework and shopping smartly online, your savings may very well surprise you. For example, you can buy a pre-owned wedding stress at a fraction of the cost of a new one (a few hundred dollars versus a few thousand). Likewise, according to the experts at Diamonds.pro, many couples tend to overspend at brick-and-mortar retailers or are prone to getting ripped off if they don’t know exactly what sort of rock they’re looking for. In short, don’t ignore online retailers if you’re truly looking to save money on your big day. Small Details, Big Savings Likewise, the smallest details of your wedding fashion can reveal the biggest savings. For example, consider the following: If your wedding dress isn’t the ideal length, swap out your shoes (flats versus heels) to accommodate the excess or missing length, saving you hundreds of dollars on hemming If you decide to rent your dress, use a sheet to cover the hem and train, keeping it from dragging on the ground prior to the wedding (saving on cleaning costs) For your ring, choose your diamond color carefully, as many lighter shades of diamonds look identical to the untrained eye but could be exponentially more expensive Attention to detail can go a long way: stay savvy and keep an eye on anywhere you can potentially save. Dress Disaster? No Problem There’s perhaps nothing worse than a fashion disaster on the day of your wedding. For this very reason, many celebrity planners recommend having an emergency fashion kit on hand to fix up any potential fashion faux pas that may occur. For example, such a kit may include: Rubber bands Double-sided tape Stain-removal wipes Needle and thread White-out pens These items could be the difference between a memorable ceremony and a meltdown, so consider keeping them on deck during your ceremony. Planning a memorable wedding is stressful enough, so take some of the stress out of the process by shopping smart and spotting opportunities to save. By doing so, you can look fabulous on your special day without breaking the bank.

5 Bridal Shower Etiquette Tips - Team Wedding Blog | Wedding Inspiration | Scoop.it
Planning a bridal shower is hardly a small feat, especially if dozens upon dozens of women are attending. Food, drinks, presents, decorations, music, games…there’s a lot to consider. However, plenty of fantastic bridal shower tips exist to help you through the craziness that so often accompanies wedding planning. Review a few of the best tips to get started: Guest List Send the bridal shower invitations a month to six weeks in advance. Knowing who to send the invites to isn’t an issue, as most if not all are already on the wedding guest list! Besides, since the guests must bring gifts, asking those who are not invited to the wedding to attend is considered poor taste. Shower Traditions Feel free to incorporate fun bridal shower traditions, such as the groom appearing with flowers just as the bride is about to open her gifts. This is ideal if many of the guests have not met the groom yet! Other fun traditions including making bouquets or hats out of gift ribbon and bows, or having something old, new, borrowed, and blue present. Game Ideas Discuss game possibilities with your fellow bridesmaids if the bride has not requested any. If you really feel the shower does not need games, that’s fine, however they still offer a way for guests to get to know each other. Gift Registry Information Provide gift registry information on the invitations to avoid confusion and ensure everyone can access the registry before the shower. Theme Pick a shower theme if desired, as they provide a way to add to the fun. The ‘Round the Clock’ theme is a popular option that requires assigning guests to assorted times of day–12pm, 1pm, 2pm, etc.–and bringing gifts associated with that time. A 12am gift, for example, could be a nice bottle of wine or champagne. Feel free to ask the bride for her thoughts on themes and then brainstorm with your fellow bridesmaids. Hostess gifts are also part of bridal shower etiquette–after all, you are putting a whole lot of work in! Hopefully the bride will come up with something fun, such as tickets to an upcoming play or concert. Above all, have fun at the bridal shower!
