“I do” On A Winter Season

Dream Wedding Snapshot

 

Would you like to tie-the-knot on the month of June? Or would you like to walk down the aisle with spring flowers on a high degree temperature? Well, these things may better be left as dreams, and it seems like now is the right time to have some reality check. Though it may sound like being a June bride is ideal, it does not mean that it is the best choice. In the US for instance, the weather can be very unpredictable during the months of summer, thus an outdoor gala is not always a guarantee. This is not to mention that June weddings may cost higher due to the high competition, and this is likely to result in extra hassle and stress. Having these things in mind, you can consider what many couples opt to do-getting married on the months of winter. And below are the top two advantages of having this once in a lifetime event on winter.

The “It” Flower


So what's the hottest wedding bloom now? Anemones. These are scentless flowers that come in a vast range of jewel-toned colors. Though these have been long prized by most brides for their bright petals, the popular ones at present are those that are white with a black center. These flowers give centerpieces an ultra-bridal look, with a twist of modernity at the same time.

Mix it Up


Monochromatic is still popular these days, but style-conscious couples have been switching things up a bit. Many people go with three hues today. And how do you do it? Have half of your reception tables feature large centerpieces that showcase flowers in three different colors, while the rest hold trios of mini arrangements.

Wedding Favor Traditions through the Years

Wedding Favor Ideas

Back in history, it was believed that the European aristocracy was the one who started the tradition of giving wedding favors to their guests. They are called bonbonniere and were consist of small boxes made of porcelain or crystal. They held the delicate confections like cubes of sugar and are considered to be the ultimate symbol of royalty and wealth. In addition, sugar is believed to be source of various health benefits. Through the years, as the price of sugar decreased and has been affordable to people coming from the different walks of life, the tradition of giving favors has been passed on.

The bonbonnieres were replaced with almonds as unique wedding favors, and they were presented in either a confection box or wrapped in an elegant fabric. During the 13th century, confetti (almond coated with sugar) came into existence and became popular as sugar almonds. In a traditional package of wedding favors, five almonds are presented. And this collection represents longevity, fertility, health, happiness, and wealth. And as time went by, things changed until they reached the modern time.

At present, wedding favor ideas can be of any form of keepsake and are usually personalized with the name of the couple and the date of the wedding. Aside from this, the sky seems to be the limit with a very wide range of choices and ideas that the mind can conceive for a wedding favor. Each culture across the world shares a common practice which is the distribution of wedding favors. Each country can have their unique idea which can be traditional or modern, or a mix of two.
