09 Feb 2015 How to Plan a Wonderful Wedding?
PRNewswire-iReach on Feb. 6, 2015
Western wedding is one of the hottest new wedding themes for 2015.
 Western Wedding from HotRef.com
Busy wedding season is coming soon since people like to have a wedding with warm weather. Spring and summer are the most popular wedding seasons. If you’re newly engaged and now considering getting married, congratulations! There’s a lot to know about planning a wonderful wedding to keep from getting frazzled or running around with dread and worry. HotRef.com is here to help!

Part One: Early Planning

A lot of wedding disasters can be avoided simply by having a plan. Deciding on a budget can save you a lot of financial difficulties down the road. Sticking to your budget when you see the third pair of cute shoes you want can help you avoid disaster. It’s not just the funds needed to pay for the wedding – you also need funds to pay your bills before the big day.
Sitting down with your partner and your families and creating a guest list can help avoid outcomes like inviting 300 people and picking a church that only seats 100. (Nobody wants to leave 200 of their closest friends to stand through the ceremony!) If you’re planning a destination wedding, selecting an appropriate wedding theme will be very important, which you can get those of wedding ideas from HotRef blog. Ensuring passports and visas are taken care of.
Selecting a date that works for all the important people in the wedding party can be a task worthy of an expert negotiator, especially if there isn’t much time to plan. And, of course, the wedding location will influence not only theme and guest list, but what elements would be appropriate for a wedding. You would never wear sandy flip flops to an indoor church wedding, but for a beach wedding, they are appropriate and even expected.

Part Two: The Wedding Details

Planning a wedding is all about the little details. And what more important detail is there than the ring that’s going to be slipped on your finger during the wedding? Make sure the ring is entrusted to someone special and that you have a backup ring just in case. (You can always put on the correct ring later).
Another extremely important detail is the bridal dress. Brides can spend months looking for just the right dress to wear and it can take several months to have the alterations done properly. Make sure you allow for enough time for the alterations and that the dress fits properly. And while you’re getting the wedding dress, it’s also important to keep in mind that the bridesmaid dresses can also take several weeks to get alterations done. You may need to consider styles that are flattering for multiple figures and affordable to their budgets. Don’t forget to make sure that everyone has a pair of appropriate shoes! And if you’re going to have hair and makeup done on the big day, the people who are going to be doing that should be reserved well ahead of time, as well as going through at least one trial run beforehand.
Of course, it’s not just the bride who has to look good. The groom and his groomsmen also need to look sharp. Be sure that their suits are in the appropriate styles and colors and allow adequate time if they need to be changed or altered in any way. If they’re going to use boutonnieres, make sure the flowers are fresh and ready to go on the big day! And not just the flowers for the guys, but the bridal bouquets should also be fresh and ready to go on the big day. Getting flowers that are in season can make a big difference to your budget, so be sure to ask your florist for ideas!
Then, there are all the places and people that must be reserved well ahead of time. The photographer is the one who is going to be capturing the memories, so it’s important to talk to several different ones and take a look through their portfolios. Ask to see all the pictures of one wedding rather than just a “best of” album. Also, it may be worth your while to come to an agreement about getting the pictures on a CD and being able to print them off when you want.
Another place that must be reserved is the caterer. If you’re going to serve food at your wedding, you want to know it’s going to be good food. And if any of the food is special in any way (gluten free, vegetarian, etc.), you’ll want to be extra sure your guests are going to be eating well. Make sure to taste lots of samples, especially when discussing the wedding cake. Be sure not to forget the all-important centerpiece!

Part Three: All the Decorations

Here’s where HotRef can really help you with your wedding! HotRef.com sells all manner of necessities for you guests, whether your wedding is indoor or outdoor, casual or elegant.

15 Jul 2013 Getting married on a warm, sandy beach miles from home
 |  Category: Beach, Bridal, Wedding  |  Tags: ,  | Leave a Comment

Getting hitched on a luxury, warm beach has been the most ideal way to become man and wife since world travel became easier in the last three decades or so. A wedding is a special day and getting married in style and luxury is one sure fire way to make that big day unforgettable.

Among the best locations for getting married on a warm, sandy beach thousands of miles away from home has many distinct advantages; including having your honeymoon right after the service has taken place. There is no need to line up at some busy airport and fly in a cramped plane for eight hours after you have just taken your vows. You may have to sacrifice bringing along all your friends and some distant cousins too, as not everyone can afford to attend a luxury beach resort in some tropical paradise.

So what are the favourite locations and destinations for happy couples wishing to tie the knot on a warm, sandy beach in some tropical paradise? Europeans like to fly to Greece or Cyprus for that private ceremony on some romantic island beach. Spain is another destination where you’ll find the right heat and climate but it can get a little too crowded at times. North American couples love to get married in exotic locations in Mexico, the Caribbean or Florida; Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos Islands being particular popular right now.

For those couples with a few extra pennies to spare, traveling to the exotic Jimbaran Bay in Indonesia, Half Moon Beach in Jamaica, and Rocky Resort in Koh Samui in Thailand or the Grenadines beautiful Palm Island really is where your marriage can take place on, what feels like, another planet.

Couples can wear small summer dresses for the bride and a short-sleeved Hawaiian shirt for the groom. There really is no need for the formal black tie look or the white bridal gown and dress to be looking just perfect for that beach wedding. Couples should also look to be a bit creative in the floral designs that accompany the altar on the beach; try aiming for a seashell bouquet instead of one with flowers. If you do go for flowers, try adding some mini starfish to your floral decoration. If you manage to make it to one of these exotic locations and decorate your boutique with sea-themed additions, you will surely make your special day one to remember for the rest of your life.
