Expert Tips For Planning The Perfect Summer Wedding!

Publish On 2014-04-08 , 5:27 AM

If you plan to have your wedding during your favourite season (summer!), when days are long and warm, and nights are starry and romantic, make sure to read these tips before starting the planning process. Not only will your guests thank you, but it will be the best summer wedding they’ve ever been to!

Location, location, location
First of all, when choosing your venue, make sure you are not going to a place that will be right in the middle of hurricane season, which will pose the threat of destructive weather and travelling issues.

Beach wedding?  Check the tides.  A full moon will let you know to expect the swell of the tides and thus, waves and aggressive motion in your background.

If you are thinking about a ceremony by the water, keep in mind that you may get attacked by bugs and insects.  Look around to see if you have other options where you will have less of a chance of being attacked.

If you do, however, plan to exchange your vows by the water, make sure you have a microphone and that your voices are not drowned out by the sounds of the water.

Make sure that you have a plan B, in case of rain.  No bride wants to be drenched with makeup running down her face!

Timing is everything
When choosing the time of day, if possible, don’t get married midday, when there is the highest risk of unpredictable rain showers. Instead, opt for morning, late afternoon or early evening, when you have better odds of dry weather.

Happy guests = happy wedding
You want to ensure guests are comfortable throughout the entire day (and night).

Keep them hydrated and cool, especially if you are having an outdoor wedding. Provide cold water bottles, fans and air conditioning where possible!  If you do have part of a wedding outside (ceremony) and then go indoors for the reception, make sure the room is cool before your guests enter.

Keep in mind that many people suffer from allergies.  Make sure the grass is not cut the day of the wedding as this will surely activate any seasonal allergies your guests may suffer from.

Offer guests bug repellant.  There are bugs, mosquitoes and bees during the day and especially at night.  Place citronella candles around and offer beautifully packaged repellant to your guests.  This will be so appreciated.

If you are on a beach, provide flip-flops for everyone.  Who can walk in the sand with heels or want to sweat in dress shoes?  Just last night, I saw the most interesting thing at a wedding meeting: plastic heel attachments that ladies can snap onto their heels that saves their heels from digging into grass as they walk.  Such an amazing invention and a gift that every high-heeled lady will be grateful for!

Smile.  Picture Time!
When planning your picture-taking schedule, plan for as late as possible.  In the early afternoon, it is the most humid and hottest part of the day.  A sweating and uncomfortable bride will not be happy taking pictures at this worst time of the day.

Brides, make sure you keep a bag with your maid-of-honour or someone else who will be with you the entire day.  Fill your bag with everything you need for touch-ups, from make-up to deodorant and perfume.

Brides, look and feel your best.
When shopping for your dress, remember the conditions you will be in.

A long or poufy heavy dress will make it really uncomfortable for you in the heat, and on grass or sand.  Lighter fabrics that are more flowy not only look stunning, but will make you feel much more comfortable.

Brides, also keep in mind that less is more, especially on hot humid days. A really extravagant updo, for example, will have a hard time keeping its shape.  You can still stay cool and gorgeous with a simple updo and not stress about your hairstyle unravelling.  Summer is easy and casual and your summer wedding look should be, too!

Keep the menu light and refreshing.
Summer fare should always be light and fresh.  No one wants a heavy meal in the hot weather.  Think gazpacho soup, fresh salads, light grilled meat (like chicken or fish) and lots of fruits and vegetables.  Desserts should be bite size, colourful and beautifully displayed.  Rather than rich and heavy cakes, lighter treats such a lemon squares, fruit tarts and sorbets make for more summer-friendly treats.

9 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Wedding Planner

Publish On 2014-04-16 , 5:05 AM

You've decided to hire a wedding planner - but how do you know which person is right for you and your big day? Thanks to a growing industry and what seems like a million different wedding blogs, it's not always easy to sift through the hundreds of event coordinators out there. Not sure where to start? Ask yourself these nine important questions as you search for the perfect wedding planner.




1. Where is she located? It's smart to find someone who's located in the region where your wedding will take place, if only because she's sure to have plenty of connections. Plus, if your planner is near the venue, chances are she's worked there before and may be familiar with some of the regular vendors.

2. How many years of experience? Time doesn't say everything, but it certainly speaks to some measure of success. Look for someone with a reputation, not only because it will give you peace of mind, but also because you want to work with someone who's respected within the community.

3. Who are her frequent collaborators? Most wedding coordinators work with the same vendors over and over again, so do a bit of research to find out who her friends are in the business. You'll get a great sense of her taste and those are most likely the people she'd refer you to in the future.

4. Would I ask her to grab coffee? You'll be talking to this person very, very often throughout your engagement, so be sure that you genuinely like her. If she seems a bit cold, elitist, or argumentative, just remember that you'll be trusting this person with the most special day of your life - not to mention your dollars and cents.

5. Is she timely? If she can't respond to an email on time, chances are she won't be too quick to tackle your burning questions, either. Look for a wedding planner who is prompt, organized, and coolheaded.

6. Am I impressed by her portfolio? The images a wedding planner chooses to place on her website should be the best of the best, so if you aren't blown away by the work she's shared, move on. You should feel inspired by her previous events - go for the one who dazzles you.

7. Is she on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest? It's 2014, and if your wedding planner doesn't have an Internet presence, that's a red flag. Even if you prefer a more classic, vintage taste, you want someone who's well connected and regularly reinventing her style.

8. Do I appreciate her sense of design? Look at everything from her website design to her personal fashion sense to recognize whether or not your tastes will mesh well. Weddings are all about presentation, so it's important to find a person who presents herself - and her business - in a way that you respect and admire.

9. How does she feel about my vision? Most importantly, it's your day. The first time you speak, give her a rundown of the details you've been brainstorming. The right wedding planner will be excited by your ideas and expand on them in a creative, thoughtful way. Otherwise, you may end up with an event that doesn't suit you.

The bottom line: If you're picky about only one thing throughout the planning process, make it your event coordinator. You'll be passing the reins to this person again and again, so it's crucial that you feel confident in your decision.
