Candlelight Candle Bright! ~ Charlotte's Favourite Things...

I absolutely LOVE how a candle can make the ambiance of a room change within seconds without spending tonnes of money on elaborate decorations.

 

Try adding small subtle candles to your wedding venue and see how quickly the romance lights up (literally).

 

Try adding candles to your walk way to add a whimsical look to your entrance. It adds such a glow that will make your guests feel warm and fuzzy inside!

Putting a touch of tea light candles in the midst of your centre pieces can really liven up the space and not break the bank. Just one more thing to help with your perfect day!


Keep Up The Happy Planning!

Getting Married Under the Stars: Outdoor Weddings!

Always wanted your dream to come true outdoors?  Love under the stars?  Magic under the bright beautiful skies? Us too! Just make sure you follow these guidelines to ensure that that dream really can become a reality. 

First things first...Have a back-up plan! There is nothing worse than checking the weather forecast the week before and then finding out on your special day it decides to rain! Try having a few tents set-up somewhere nearby to make sure that in case the skies decide to open up that day, you and your guests will be saved! Trust me, they'll all thank you!

 

  

Another way to be cautious is to just plan for the worst! It is very common for a bride and groom to choose their special date 8 months to a year in advance. Unfortunately, there are no websites that can see the future so we have to just hope that day works out in your favour. But what we can do closer to the date, is be knowledgeable about all possible outcomes so no matter what, your day will still turn out accordingly to plan. Remember, expect the best, prepare for the worst.

 

Check the weather forecast as frequently as you can! Don't just try one website but try a few to make sure you are getting consistent information instead of just one weather guy flipping a coin! Even though things can change drastically, having an idea of the weather on your wedding day can help you with preparing for the outcome.  

For your guests, you want to make sure that they are having just as much fun as you are, so make sure they are well taken care of! Plan to have restrooms, enough seating areas or tables and anything else that will help make their time more enjoyable. For example, if your outdoor wedding is going to be in the middle of Summer, make sure you provide hand-fans for your guests to make sure they can cool themselves down if they get too overheated. 

   

Another way to make sure your guests are enjoying themselves is by ensuring that it your venue is easy to access. It is very common for women to wear heels to these kinds of events so you want to make sure that there is even ground for them to walk on so that no one is breaking any shoes! Try creating small stepping stones to help avoid this! Also, for some of your elderly family and friends, make sure that there are no major hills to climb up so that everyone can safely get to your wedding! 

   

If your outdoor wedding is seeping into the nighttime, make sure that there is sufficient lighting for you and your guests to maneuver around your venue so that no one is tripping over themselves to get to the washrooms or to their seats. This is much more likely to happen if there is alcohol involved so make sure the area is well-lit.

   

  

Once all of this has been planned and avoided, lastly you want to remember to just have fun! Now that you're prepared for the worst, nothing can get in your way from living out your dream wedding with your loving family and friends.

 

Until Next Time...
