Outdoor Wedding

How to Have the Ultimate Outdoor Summer Wedding

Summer weddings allow for sunny ceremonies in the open air, bright florals, and nostalgic elements that will take you back to the simpler days in life. However, the hot months also means plentiful bugs and sweaty, uncomfortable guests, so you will need to prepare ahead of time to ensure that memories of your wedding do not focus on wet brows and mosquitos. We have compiled some ideas below for how to keep your guests comfortable and entertained, and about how to fully take advantage of the seasonin your decor and send-off, so that you can have the ultimate outdoor summer wedding.

  1. First and Foremost, there are several step you can take to ensure the comfort of your guests.

We love the idea of putting baskets of fans at the entrance of the ceremony venue, or even creating a fanout of your programs for guests to use while you say your I do’s.

Have plenty of fresh non-alcoholic beverages that your guests can serve for themselves, so that they stay hydrated and cool.

A stand that includes sunscreen and bugspray is a great way to remind guests to protect themselves so that they wont have painful reminders the day after your outdoor ceremony.

Including a basket of flip flops for ladies to swap out their heels allows for comfortable walking in the grass during the ceremony and provides the perfect dancing shoes during the reception.

  1. Include funactivitiesthat take you and your guests back to the long summer days of your childhood.

Lawn games are always a huge hit for both young and old. Incorporate fun facts about the bride and groom into the game for a more personal touch.

You can never go wrong with a fun photobooth! Create lasting memories with DIY unique props and backdrops.

Bring in an ice-cream truck or popsicle stand for a fun and delicious way to cool off your guests!

  1. Decorate with the season in mind.

If you opt to hold your reception once the sun goes down to avoid the dog-day heat, hanging votivesfrom trees is a beautiful option to add a romantic glow to your party. Candles are also great alternatives to using flower centerpieces that you have to worry about wilting from the sun.

Honeymoon in Istanbul!!

Honeymoon in Istanbul!!

Congratulations on your wedding! It is time to pack your bag and head out for your honeymoon. If you truly want to show your new spouse the depth of your love and commitment, you should plan to spend your honeymoon in the amazing and romantic city of Istanbul, Turkey. You can be certain your beloved will adore you even more for this cherished and wonderful surprise.

The Charm of Istanbul

Istanbul may not be the official capital of Turkey, but it certainly takes the credit for being the epicentre of the country. This vibrant and energetic city has so much to offer that visitors can lose themselves to the charisma and appeal.

The mighty Bosphorus divides the city into two parts, with one part in Asia and the other in Europe.

No other city in the world straddles two continents or has the panache that Istanbul displays. It is a historic city that pays ode to the ancient Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Istanbul seamlessly embraces modernity and its rich history to offer honeymooners a romantic city that has the exotic allure of Marrakesh and the romanticism of Paris.

Istanbul is the perfect city to celebrate your love and new life. And, you will definitely fall in love with this extremely welcoming, delightful and exotic city.

Things to Do

Besides having a memorable and passionate stay in the hotel’s bridal suite, you also should make an effort to take in the wonderful Istanbul has to offer. Some of the things you will love seeing and doing in Istanbul include:

  • Taking a Cruise of the Bosphorus:

There is nothing more relaxing and rejuvenating than taking a day long cruise of the Bosphorus Strait. The cruise will give you a spellbinding view of the colourful villas dating back to the Ottoman Empire, the majestic castles dotting the shoreline and the traditional fishing boats trying to haul their nets and bring in their catch.

  • Exploring the Sultanahmet Mosque

This amazing mosque is an architectural marvel. Also known as the Blue Mosque, the mosque boasts of more than 20,000 ceramic tiles, which are handmade. The chandeliers in the mosque are adorned with real ostrich eggs; while the stained glass windows are mesmerizing.

  • Retail Therapy at the Grand Bazaar

A trip to Istanbul is incomplete without visiting the Grand Bazaar and bargaining with shopkeepers for gorgeous Turkish rugs, delicate jewellery and rich leather items. The Grand Bazaar boasts of being one of the largest covered markets in the world.

  • Unearthing the Beauty of the Topkapi Palace Grounds

The vast grounds of the Palace date back to 1478 and are renowned for their impressive and regal landscaping. The Topkapi Palace used to be the official royal residence of the reigning sultans. Be sure to stop at the Imperial Treasury to admire the Spoonmaker’s diamond – a massive 86-karat diamond.

The Best Time to Visit Istanbul

The best time to visit Istanbul is in autumn (September to October) and spring (April to June), when the temperatures are mild and perfect for sightseeing and spending time outdoors.

Preparing for Your Honeymoon in Istanbul

Before you depart, you will need a few things, so that you have an unforgettable, romantic and enjoyable honeymoon in Istanbul: Valid passport with Turkey visa , an ‘English to Turkish’ phrase book Turkish Lira, Traveller’s cheques, Hotel reservation and a confirmed flight booking.

Enjoy your time with your loved one in Turkey, Hoşçakal!!

Wedding in Monsoon

How to Plan a Monsoon Wedding

Do most wedding anniversaries in your family fall in the months of November and December? But now it is your turn to get married, and you are in no mood to follow the family path. Do not worry! Choose the unconventional norm and tie your nuptial knot this monsoon season. A monsoon wedding might sound a little clumsy but if planned well, can reap many benefits as compared to winter weddings.

As most of the weddings take place in the latter part of the year, so all the best venues and caterers are pre-booked, and even the pundits are not free. But, monsoon is the best time to bargain for deals as most vendors are free at this time of the year. So this monsoon season, get what you want at the lowest cost and make your wedding far more exciting.

A blessing in disguise

You are probably thinking about the myriad problems that can occur, if you choose to get married during the rainy season. But there are plenty of reasons to give it a happy nod as well.

 

1. Like shoe sales throughout this season, the prices of caterers also go down. You can easily bargain with venue managers, and can manage to save a lot of money. All the more, you can use this saved amount to plan your exotic honeymoon.

 

2. It may seem unbelievable but people actually book popular wedding halls a year in advance. But if you are an August bride, you will get your desired venue even a week in advance.

 

3. It is a great idea to escape from the city and have a wedding at a hill station or a beach. Your wedding will be a great vacation for all your invitees and will be fondly remembered by all.

 

4. Monsoon is a very romantic time and tying the knot with raindrops falling all around will surely make you fall for you partner even more.

 

5. Bridal makeup tends to melt away during this sultry season. So, avoid any cream-based make up, be it a blush or an eyeshadow. Also, use a use waterproof eyeliner and mascara to prevent it from spreading.

Pre-planning

Ask your wedding planner to arrange for waterproof tents at the venue. To be on the safer side, organise all the ceremonies indoors. Make sure that there are no leakages anywhere. Besides this, choose a venue which is convenient for all the guests. Also check for any potholes outside the venue. Make arrangements for valets with large umbrellas to help the guests reach the venue from their cars. You can also hire a few cabs to pick and drop selective guests.

The Menu

Monsoon weddings give you an unparalleled opportunity to explore different menu options. Just take extra care to ensure that everything is prepared in a hygienic manner, since there is a greater chance of stomach ailments during this season. Make sure that everything is fresh; the best way to do this is by having live counters. Besides tava items and pasta, a live counter for bhajiyas and jalebi will also be a definite hit. You can also add hot drinks like masala or kulladh chai, kesar doodh with rabri and badaam milk in your menu.

The monsoon theme

Make ‘rain’ as your theme by using fountains, umbrellas and rainbow colours around the venue. Add some special touch to brighten the ambience. You can do this by using bright colours to decorate the venue. Play classic monsoon songs at the reception. If you love pre-wedding functions, plan a rain dance party for your friends. It will definitely be a show-stealing event.

So, now you know why a monsoon wedding is not a bad idea at all. Follow our tips and divert your expenses to more fruitful plans such as your honeymoon, a joint investment plan or may be a first night gift.
