Magical kids corners at your wedding

When you start planning your wedding, you cannot forget the children, to which you have to attend and pay special attention.

If there is a great number of children, it’s always recommendable to hire an entertainer service so they can help children to eat, and then entertain them with games and activities. So children can have a good time and their parents will also enjoy the party.

First of all you have to create a cheerful, colourful and magic atmosphere. How to do it? Through table decoration, corners, etc. Here you can find some ideas.

You can decorate the kids tables so that they are attractive for chidren, but they have to always fit with the rest of decoration.

If chidren are younger, a good idea is to put a special kit with coloured pencils and books.

Another idea is to put on the table some little gifts as disposable cameras, bubble blowers, cards games or a flower crown for the little princesses and a feather crown for the boys.

You can replace flower centerpieces with balloon or simply to give a touch of color with a tablecloth in the same colors of the rest of decoration, colored bows for chairs, etc.

If your wedding is outdoor and with a rustic style, you can replace the typical table with a pallet table decorated with cushions. Children will love to eat as if it were a picnic!

If your wedding has a tropical theme, the best way to decorate the kids table is with greenery, flowers, pineapples and flamingos!

You can also prepare a special space for them and where they can do activities with their entertainers.

You can do corners with an indian tepee with blankets, cushions, and some toy. It is always advisable that everything has the same palette color and same theme of the rest of decoration. There is a useful tool that helps you to obtain the perfect decoration in your big day and I talk about that in this post.

How to manage your wedding budget

You have decided to get married, you have a date, and now…You have to crunch the numbers!

How much will your wedding cost?

Firstly, it is very important to be clear about budget of your wedding will not be the same as your friends or neighbors. Each wedding is unique and its costs change due to different factors.

The first thing you have to decide is if you want to hire a wedding planner service.

It’s common to think that is a cost that only few people can pay. It’s not true! You have to keep in mind that your wedding planner will get better prices from vendors, and she will always recommend the best professionals based on your tastes and budget. A wedding planner also frees you from the stress to plan a wedding. You can enjoy every moment of planning, and you will always have someone that will be your eyes and your ears, that will solve any unexpected event, and that will always be in contact with all vendors.

There is much more to tell about the advantages of hiring a wedding planner, but we will talk more in another post.

After deciding whether to hire or not a wedding planner service, it’s important to estimate  the number of guests that will go to your wedding. I suggest to carefully think what kind of wedding you want and if you can pay a wedding with more than 150 guests.

If you cannot assume such a high cost, it’s always better to reduce the number of guests and make an intimate wedding taking care of every detail.

Trust me that you can have your dream wedding and enjoy, also with 30 or 40 guests.

After making a provisional guests list, you can make another list where you put what will be essential in your wedding, the important things, and the unnecessary things. In this way you will be  clear about what you want to spend more and what you can avoid.

Something very important to keep in mind are the unexpected event that can appear in the previous months the wedding. So I recommend you to have a small amount saved for these “surprises”.

To have a control of all expenses, you can prepare an excel table where you write down the costs of your wedding. I usually send an updated table to my customers, with all pending payments and payments made to each vendor.

Are you ready to calculate the budget of your big day?

The bridal shower as an alternative to the hen party

If you don’t like the typical hen party, there is a new trend from USA, the bridal shower, an intimate party between friends, relaxed and full of details.

You can organize a week-end in some country house, where you can enjoy unforgettable moments with your friends. Laughters, picnics, dinners on the terrace, a mojito, gifts, surprises, a beauty session and a massage…

There are many ideas to spend a wonderful day or week-end. You can tell moments lived together and roar with laughter remembering funny stories.

You can decorate the space with a style or thematic that reminds you something special, as a trip, a common hobby, or that reflects simply the personality of the bride, using her favorite color in paper garlands, flowers, tablecloths, cushions, etc.

You can create really nice corners with a Candy bar, or an elegant tea table in true english style.
