Here are some ideas and tips to help you Pick the Blush Wedding Bouquets:

  • Complement your bridal gown: Your Blush Pink Bouquet will depend on the design of your wedding dress. So, bring swatches of your wedding dress fabric and the bridesmaids dress color photos to your first meeting with a florist, this way your florist designer can help you match the right shade of blush pink to your wedding theme.
  • The are many shades of pink bouquet flowers, choose the pink shade that complements your dress, not compete with it; a wedding gown with a lot of bling go well with simple ivory and soft pink flowers, while a simple dress might be perfectly matched with a more extravagant arrangement studded with crystals.
  • Explore various shapes: Bridal bouquets can be fashioned into various styles and sizes, from nosegays or cascading bouquets to tight pomanders (great for a petite bride) or a free form, hand-tied style (which is usually less expensive and looks less formal). Each of the styles can serve a purpose and work wonders, depending on the style of wedding.
  • Holding your Blush Pink Wedding Bouquet: Remember to hold your wedding bouquet as low as possible. It’s natural to be nervous when you’re the center of attention. Many brides pull their bouquet up to their chest. Hold the bouquet below your waist this way the guest can see the details of your dress and the photographer can capture better picture of your dress walking down the aisle.

Luxury Wedding Bouquets: Your wedding dress in gorgeous , your veil’s amazing . however you need one more must-have accessory to complete your wedding attire your wedding bouquet.

Here are some ideas and tips to help you Pick the Ultimate Luxury Wedding Bouquets:

  • Play off your gown: Your blooms will depend a lot on the design of your dress, the style of your celebration, even your body type. So, bring swatches of your dress fabric or a photo to your first meeting with a florist, as well as photos of your ceremony site and any other details you can provide. Why? The flowers should complement your dress, not compete with it; an ornate gown might cry out for clean-looking flowers, while a simple dress might be perfectly matched with a more extravagant arrangement studded with crystals and silk ribbon streamers.
  • Explore various shapes: Bridal bouquets can be fashioned into various styles and sizes, from nosegays or cascading bouquets to tight pomanders (great for a petite bride) or a free form, hand-tied style (which is usually less expensive and looks less formal). Each of the styles can serve a purpose and work wonders, depending on the style of wedding.
  • Not just for the hand: By the way, some of the most eye-catching floral accessories aren’t carried in the hand at all–from a ravishing flowers wrapped around the bride’s shoulders to a gentle halo of blossoms woven into the hair or wired to a comb used in an upswept hairstyle (freesias, gardenias, roses and stephanotis work best in this way).
  • Bejewel that bounty: Whatever posies you choose, bouquets can also incorporate beading, ribbons, sparkling crystals and countless other decorative accessories. Fabric from the bride’s dress can even be fashioned into buds and interspersed with real blooms (especially impactful during a winter wedding using jewel-toned hues) the options are limitless.
  • Stem appeal: Adorn the stems to complement your blooms. Why not finish the bouquet handle as another element to express style and details? Wrap them tightly in a carefully braided ribbon or swathed in a gorgeous piece of fabric that corresponds to the color scheme of your entire affair. Just make sure the handle doesn’t look too long (it may look like another limb in photos!) or too puny either. (But if you do prefer an elongated shape, long-stemmed flowers such as delphiniums, roses, calla lilies and French tulips work best in hand-tied bouquets.)
  • On aroma: As you glide down the aisle, would you like to inhale a particularly heady perfume of heirloom lilacs–or something more citrusy? Consider the aroma of your flowers as part of your impact.
  • Flowers slim you down: Remember to hold your flowers as low as possible. It’s natural to be nervous when you’re the center of attention. Many brides inadvertently pull their bouquet into their bellies or up to their chests–it’s almost a protective mechanism.This stance makes the bouquet look like it’s growing out of your stomach, cutting your body in half and making you look shorter and–horrors–possibly heavier than you actually are.Hold the bouquet below your waist so it sits low on your gown and you’ve just shaved a couple of more inches off your waistline. Who doesn’t want to look taller and thinner.
  • Thwart wilting: Flowers are fragile and can perish easily. That’s why many bouquets are fashioned from hardier stock like roses, peonies, and lilies. But if you select more delicate varieties, like gardenias, viburnum, lily of the valley, or hydrangeas, take precautions. Hydrangeas need to be kept in water as long as possible. Lily of the valley and gardenias bruise easily and need to be kept upright and not resting on its side. And viburnums need their stems smashed so it can hydrate well before being fashioned into a bouquet.
  • Timing is everything: The bouquet should be made the day of the event for optimum freshness and kept refrigerated until the very last moment before the ceremony. If you’ll be taking photographs before the ceremony and your flowers are delicate, ask your florist to make two bouquets.

Your bridesmaids bouquets are given to each bridesmaid as a token of appreciation of being in the bridal party. Traditionally The bridesmaid bouquet is smaller than the maid-of-honor your bridal bouquets.

Every single aspect of your wedding is important including the bridesmaid bouquet. Your wedding theme could be a mix of contrasts or a simple elegant theme in white and gold. And every accessory should enhance the look for your wedding theme.

  • Blend the flowers in the bridesmaid bouquet : Discuss theses options with your florist designer and bring a swatch of the bridesmaid dresses so he or she can create a color that matches your overall theme of your wedding and reception décor. It is not necessary to have your bridesmaids all carry the same bouquet style. The various bouquets can all be different as long as they feature a common thread amongst them and still look lovely and cohesive. For example, if the bride is carrying a bouquet with three different flowers, such as roses, calla lilies and tulips, and there are three bridesmaids, divide the flowers accordingly. Each bridesmaid’s bouquet will feature a piece of the bride’s bouquet but be individually different. The bouquets should be tied with the same decorative ribbon for a continuous look.
  • Color contrast with your bridesmaid dresses: Thinking out of the box never harms and you can put this thought behind the creation of the bridesmaid’s bouquet. It doesn’t have to be in monochromes. Instead it can be a mix of contrasting flowers which burst into multiple hues when put together and set against your bridesmaids dresses.
  • Blending color tones in your bridesmaids bouquet : Another idea is a blend of a single color tones flowers in your bridesmaids bouquet that matches you color theme, it will create a trail of simple elegance down the aisle.

No matter which bridesmaids bouquet you choose, remember to always bring the pictures to your meeting with your florist.

Tropical Shirts aren’t Just for Party Animals Anymore

    It’s about style as much as comfort.

    6 hours agoHawaiian shirtHomer Simpson was wrong about Hawaiian shirts. They’re for everyone.Shutterstock

    When you’re on vacation, wearing a bright tropical shirt is practically expected. But it’s not just because earth tones are for the office. Tropical shirts were created to be comfortable in day-to-day island life, where the heat and humidity can make even the most languid schedule feel arduous. Here’s what to look for, when you want to be comfortable on your getaway.

    You’re Here to Party

    Digital Palms ShirtTommy Bahama Men’s Digital Palms ShirtAmazon

    Breathable material, like silk or cotton, should be at the top of your list. By letting heat and moisture out, a tropical shirt makes it more comfortable to be active and to be in the sun without needing a hydration backpack. It also feels good on your skin, which is a nice bonus.

    From the Bag to the Beach

    Air TropicalVan Heusen Men’s Air Tropical Short Sleeve Button DownAmazon

    Also important is care. You probably don’t want to spend much time on a long vacation doing laundry, let alone caring for a delicate garment or sending out dry cleaning. Wash-and-wear and non-iron design will let you just take your shirt off the hanger and get down to the far more important business of relaxing.

    A Look of Your Own

    28 Palms28 Palms Men’s Standard-Fit Tropical Hawaiian ShirtAmazon

    But don’t ignore style and fit, either. While the classic tropical shirt has tended to fit loosely, and stuck to classic patterns, there’s a whole host of shirts that fit in different ways in patterns that fit your individual style. After all, when you go on vacation, it’s about relaxing and dressing the way you want.

    Wedding Planner & Wedding Coordinator

    Finding a Wedding Planner

    Let us be the first to admit that wedding planning is no walk in the park. After a couple has gotten engaged and the excitement of that special moment dies down, the reality sets in. And many couples have no idea where to start when planning their wedding, or what sort of undertaking it will be. That’s when it’s time to consider talking to a professional. Wedding planners, also know as wedding coordinators or wedding consultants, have the knowledge, organizational skills, and experience from previous events to help make your special day the best it can possibly be.

    Committing to your significant other was a no brainer, but finding and booking the right wedding planner for your big day can be a little more tricky. Here are some thing to consider when beginning your wedding planner search.

    Types of Wedding Planners

    First things first. This may come as a bit of a shock but there is more than one type of planner. In fact, there are about seven types of wedding coordinators. Knowing the difference between these wedding professionals can make the selection process all that much easier.

    Starting with a full service or all-inclusive planner. This type of wedding coordinator will be with you every step of the way during the planning process and on your big day. These planners are best for couples who may not have a lot of free time to plan a wedding or need help with small decisions like incorporating the color palette with linens and flowers. A full service wedding planner will help with everything from selecting vendors, to optimizing your budget.

    You can also have a month-of-planner. As the name suggests, these consultants will come into the picture in the last few weeks or days before the wedding. They exist to be an extra set of hands during crunch time. These planners can help with any last-minute issues that pop up unexpectedly, as well as working with vendors to finalize contracts and set up for deliveries.

    Another option would be a weekend wedding coordinator. This type of wedding planner is going to be a major component of making your wedding day run as smoothly as possible. However, they are not solely there for the big day, they can also help with organizing and welcoming guests as they arrive and planning wedding related events like the rehearsal dinner and morning-after brunch.

    Similar to a weekend wedding coordinator, a day-of coordinator is there to make sure your wedding takes place with minimal hiccups. Many couples wish they had hired a day-of coordinator after the fact. They ease the stress of having to focus on the tiny details so your special day can be enjoyed to the fullest.

    If you are planning an out of state, or out of country wedding. A destination wedding coordinator may be the best choice for you. If you and your fiancé(e) can’t physically be there for planning, a professional consultant may be the way to go. These wedding planners meet with vendors, scout for venues, and understand specific regional information like weather, since that can be a huge aspect of planning any wedding.

    There are also planners who work specifically with scouting venues and giving referrals. This type of planner will be able to go with you to look at venues and negotiate vendor contracts. These planners are often very well connected and can help you meet with vendors that are considered the best in the business.

    If none of these options seem like the best fit for you, consider looking for wedding planners that have services à la carte. Planners are aware that not everyone wants or needs every service they provide. Creating a custom planning package can be easier on the budget and still allow for professional help.

    Wedding Planner Prices

    The cost of hiring a wedding planner will vary from state to state, region to region, and country to country. Full service coordinators are going to be more expensive than day-of planners. Planners in less populated areas are also likely to be less expensive and so will the cost of the entire wedding.
