South Asian Wedding Love - Shermeen & Chris!

Oh my goodness  It has been a LONG time since we have blogged!  We are going to turn that around for 2017.. we promise!!!!  To start we wanted to share one of our weddings that was special to us as we have become really good friends with the bride & groom.  What could be better than that!!

We come across a wide range of personalities when it comes to our lovely S&E clients but when we got a phone call from our dear Shermeen, well let's just say that we were in for a ride!  Her positive personality, trusting and caring outlook on life in general was truly inspiring and infectious!  Looking for a full planning service, Shermeen & Chris needed assistance with every aspect of their wedding preparations.  We were more than happy to help!  From attending all vendor meetings, assisting with the bridal attire selection, coordinating out of town arrangements to brainstorming and packaging the wedding favours, Style & Elegance went above and beyond to make our clients' vision a reality. With the talented and skillful eye of Adnan Ansah Photography, the moments of Shermeen & Chris' celebrations were captured so beautifully.  Here's a sneak peek!

Happy Planning!

 

Your Day and Their Day

Have your parents been there for most of the wedding planning? Have they been there for the cake-tastings, finding the 'perfect' dress, and everything else under the moon? Even though all of this planning puts the "thank-you's" under the rug most of the time, here are a few suggestions to show your parents that you really do appreciate their love and support.

 

Gifts for parents of the bride and groom normally don't get a whole lot of attention until close to the end of the wedding planning, which makes it hard to show your appreciation for the people who helped you get to be the person you are today. Spread the love with some of these ideas on how to get that message across!


A great idea to show that you care is by getting a few handkerchiefs stitched with a meaningful message to your loving parents. These simple words will bring tears to their eyes and also be very useful when it does!

  

Old Photos of you as a child with your parents is also another great idea to tug at their heartstrings and remind them that you will always be their special little someone even if they think you're growing up too fast.

 

Pendants and necklaces that capture the meaning of 'forever' will help your parents feel like you will always be with them no matter how far away you may be. No matter the distance, a parent will always be a parent and a child will always be their child.

  

Lastly, a great idea for the actual wedding day is to get something engraved for them to wear on your special day so they feel like they are just as much included in the whole process as you are. Remember, this day is just as special to them as it is to you!

 

Until Next Time, 

Charlotte

The First Look!

Need some ideas for your 'First Look' photos? Here are some amazing ideas for you and your special someone!

Sneaking up on your beloved may seem a little juvenile but in the moment it is such a fun and playful way to get the perfect shot! 

 


Another classic way to get that 'magical moment' is by having your loved one face another direction and at the last second turn around!  Capturing their first reaction to how beautiful you look is just priceless! The surprise is always a treat to capture and even better to add to the photo album.

 {Pulling out a tissue now... We just love this next one..... }


A great way to tease your betrothed is by blind-folding them first and then coming face-to-face before you have the big reveal... this is such a cute way to build the suspense and have such a memorable first glance.

 

Remember, you don't always have to have your first look with your soon-to-be... this first look can be with other family members of yours or even your wedding party!  All of these are amazing ways to capture the most memorable moments of your special day.

 

Why not make it special for your brother too!


Until Next Time...

"Spread the Love!"

Although it's great to have those heart warming moments with your loved ones on your special day, don't wait for a celebration to arise to share you appreciation.

Spreading the love during the wedding planning process may seem like something you can put on the back burner, but sharing those loving expressions will lighten the mood and relieve the inevitable stress of planning one of the most beautiful days of your life.

Something as simple as a smile and a hug can show more than 1000 words can say.  Make sure that those special people in your life know how much they mean to you and you will only receive more love back!

Even though today's post is a little shorter, the meaning and importance behind it is quite large.  We underestimate the power of love and take these fleeting moments for granted at times.  So make sure your loved ones (and your dress of course!) are your top priority and don't let the stress get in the way of coming together and creating your magical day!
