Wedding Invitation Ideas
“I choose to be with you,
to hold on to you and never let loose.
I know affection because I know you,
I have direction because you always lead me through.
Ecstatic to start this journey with you,
Our forever begins today, and without further ado,
My response I do!”

Weddings are unique and magical. The day you become one with the love of your life forever. You get to commit to the love of your life, with your friends and family to share the moment. It demands time, funds, energy, and creativity in planning. Since it is an extraordinary event that happens once in a lifetime, you want it seamless and as close to perfection as it can get. Every detail is sifted through to ensure that it works out well. One preparatory step that holds many other plans together is a wedding invitation.

Your wedding invitation gives your guests a sneak peek into your big day. It is a perfect way of expressing your unique personality without sacrificing elegance. You can use your wedding as a springboard for coining your wedding theme or even its colors. There are many things to consider when designing your wedding card, and being creative and adding your touch to it would make it more fun. Here are some tips that will make your wedding invitation card a hit.

1. Early preparation

It would help if you got the card appropriately designed and distributed early so that you can get responses from guests early enough. That will help you adequately prepare for those that would show up.

2. Budget

As you begin to pick out color, design, and paper type, the price starts to add up. The most cost-effective method of creating and printing your wedding invitation is through digital platforms. Digital design platforms such as Template Monkey is budget-friendly as it does not involve manual mixing of ink. It is even more effective because you have so many options to choose from. The designs are already made, so you don’t have to worry about disappointment, especially when printing many invites. Remember, think, and plan how much you are willing to spend and ensure to stay within the budget.

3. Style

Your wedding is about you and what personalities you want to portray to your guests. It should give your invitees an idea or feel of how your wedding would be. What theme are you adopting? Casual, modern, formal, or elegant? Your wedding invitation should incorporate these features.

4. Size

Don’t be close-minded when selecting the size of your wedding invitation. Experiment with different shapes and sizes. The envelope of the invite should be slightly bigger than the card itself. That ensures that nothing is too big or too small to fit. Also, bigger, bulky cards cost more for postage than the regular 4.5 by 6.25 inches invitation card.

5. Colour/Patterns

With the help of a digital design platform, this should be easy. Your wedding invites and e-vites should match your wedding color choices. Make sure to use complementary colors. You shouldn’t combine colors that don’t sync or blend. Consider these combinations:

  • Purple with Green
  • Pink with Orange
  • Green with Red
  • Red with Pink

These colors just don’t work together and are never appealing to the eyes. Also, if you are not printing in monochrome,  the invite’s texts must contrast the background. Colors like red or purple on pink paper would be difficult to read. Keep that in mind when selecting your colors.

Also, you can incorporate photography into your designs or select unique patterns that are in line with your wedding colors and themes.

6. Legibility

Make sure your fonts and writing are legible enough for all your guests to read. In the bid to be creative, you should also be considerate. Your font and background color should be different. Your typeface should be clear. You should check out a copy of the finished work before demanding bulk printing.

7. Accuracy

Your wedding invitation should be accurate and extremely precise. It should only contain the necessary information, that is, information about the wedding day.  Any extra information can go on the wedding website. Every text on your wedding invitation should be clean and organized. From your “save the date” to the wedding invitation to your “thank you” card (if you want), ensure that the design is consistent. You should use one designer/designing platform and printer for all. Apart from ensuring consistency, you can earn a discount.

Wordings

Now that you have a plan for the design of your wedding invitation, you’ll need to know what to write on the card. Below is an outline of what should ideally make it to a wedding invitation:

8. The hosts 

The names of the hosts should be appropriately written with brevity. The bride’s family usually comes first, but you can decide to write the hosts’ names as you please.

The request for your guests: It can be formal: “request the honor of your presence at…” or casual: “celebrate with us as…”

9. The names of the couple

 The bride’s name usually comes first. But for same-sex couples, the names can be outlined alphabetically.

10. Location 

You should include an exact address of the venue, including the city, so it would be easy for the guests to locate it.

11.Date and Time

You can stick to merely putting the date and time in numerics or write it out in full. Any approach you choose, ensure it is appropriately written and bold enough for people to see.

12.Details for the reception 

Your guests should know the reception venue and what time it will start.

13. Dress code

Couples sometimes choose color codes, usually those that match the wedding theme. Whichever code you choose, you should include it in your invitation to inform your guests before the event.

14. RSVP Details

You should include the RSVP contact information in the wedding invitation so that the hosts would know the number of guests they are expecting. One of the essential pieces of the wedding invitation is the deadline for RSVPs. This information should be given to the guests early, and the response should be received at least four weeks before the wedding.

Wedding planning generally involves consistent brainstorming and improvisation. But it can be a lot of fun too – choosing unique designs that reflect your personality and depict the part of you that you want to show your invitees should not be frustrating. For wedding invitations, these tips should guide you and make the decision process much more manageable. The first place to start is checking out digitally created designs and samples. With that, you can breathe and enjoy every moment of it.  Happy planning!

If you want to make your pre-wedding shoot memorable, you can capture your memories with an amazing pre-wedding video. Here are some tips, you must know to shoot Successful Pre-wedding video

Pre-wedding shoots have turned into a huge rage amongst couples. Millennial couples do their very best to create their pre-wedding shoot one notch above all others.

When it’s picking unconventional places, experimentation with topics, integrating props, which makes it blunt and quirky; couples do it all! I have seen some videos of various production houses but Videographer Nottingham is the best one among them.

Couples are ditching the most alluring photoshoot thoughts and adopting ideas which are high on creativity, uniqueness and aren’t run-of-the-mill.

However, obtaining a BANG-ON pre-wedding shoot isn’t just your photographer’s duty, however you and your spouse need to contribute both to make this a triumph. Along with these, you can check the portfolio of theflashbox.com, they have some amazing photography as well.

Here Are a Few Tips to ace your pre-wedding photoshoot:

  1. Adding the quirk
    Being somewhat mad and adding that additional quirk is something which won’t ever go out of style. Ensure you and your spouse let down your hair

And insert some interesting elements to the pre-wedding shoot.

  1. Prop up it
    Wherever demand uses props to get your pre-wedding more intriguing! Nonetheless, be certain it goes with the subject and goes well with everything. The props should not seem out of place or pressured.
  2. Get candid
    Once it comes to pre-wedding images, candids will score over the presents. Candids are actual, more expressive, and fun! Ensure that you ask your photographer to click a great deal of candids.
  3. Keep it easy
    Travelling into some far away destination or sporting extravagant outfits does not create a pre-wedding success. A number of the very best pre-wedding photoshoots can happen at your house, on the street at your favorite cafe. Thus, don’t worry!
  4. Prove the chemistry
    It’s very important that you and your spouse express love from the pre-wedding shoot. Chemistry is essential. Be as comfortable as you can, and maintain these camera jitters aside.

I hope you like reading this article.

How Should You Budget for Wedding Photography? https://keralaweddingtrends.com/how-should-you-budget-for-wedding-photography/ https://keralaweddingtrends.com/how-should-you-budget-for-wedding-photography/#respond Tue, 15 Sep 2020 12:04:59 +0000 https://keralaweddingtrends.com/?p=14346 Weddings in India are an exorbitant affair.

Weddings in India are an exorbitant affair. If you want to plan a budget wedding, you need to create a budget and allocate specific amounts to each wedding activity. This will give you a clear idea of how much you’ll need to spend to make the wedding happen.

As a general rule of thumb, allocate 10 to 20 % of the wedding budget to photography.

That said, you can come up with several ways to bring down the expenditure.

Having this budget guideline will help you –

  • Have a peace of mind.
  • Find it easier to eliminate offers that are out of reach.
  • To reallocate the extra money on some other aspect of wedding planning if you manage to find a photographer much cheaper than what you had budgeted for. 

While this guideline is the average, you don’t have to follow it.

Many people lay lot of emphasis on the quality of their wedding photos. They don’t mind spending more on professional photography while reducing the expenditure on other aspects of wedding.

So, when budgeting for wedding photography, consider these 2 factors –

  • What’s your overall wedding budget? and
  • How important is wedding photography to you?

Also, while allocating a budget for wedding photography, you need to know that wedding photography costs are not fixed. There are various factors that determine how expensive or cheap wedding photography is going to be.

Your wedding photography budget should account for these things

  • The style you are interested in.
  • The output you desire to receive
  • The amount of photographer’s time
  • Wedding and pre-wedding photoshoot locations

Get Multiple Quotes and Personalised Offers

As mentioned earlier, wedding photography has no fixed costs; it comes with different price tags for every budget. So, you need to do your research to find your wedding photographer.

Check out the websites of different photography studios. Ensure that the aesthetics and style shown in the pictures resembles what you’re looking for. When you find such photographers, request for a quote from them.

Once you receive personalized offers from them, compare the quotes. Remember, don’t go for the cheapest offer. Rather, try to find the right balance of quality and price.

Does a Higher Price Indicate Better Quality?

Usually the answer is yes. Paying more is linked to better outcome. However, this rule isn’t set in stone.

Many people hire amateur photographers and are still happy with the results. People who are just starting their career bring new ideas to the table and compensate lack of experience with enthusiasm and creativity – something you wouldn’t get from someone who has decades of experience.

However, experienced photographers are more skilled and dependable. Whether it rains or shines, your wedding pictures are going to be beautiful.

Finding a Good Value for Money Photographer

How to find a wedding photographer, who can shoot beautiful wedding pictures without breaking the bank?

Ask for referrals from friends and family members who recently married. Online reviews and testimonials are also beneficial.

Meet your potential photographer with a list sof questions to ask. Focus on the cost, the different packages and the specific style that you’re interested in. Ask for a custom package and a quote.

Pro Tip: The more information you can gather, the easier it will be to find the right photographer for you.

In conclusion

Wedding photography captures the special memories in the best possible way. When you decide your wedding budget, you’ll be able to determine how much you can spend on wedding photography. Compare the multiple quotes and contact the photographer that best fits your needs.

Wedding images are now going through certain modifications and making it a fanciful profession. You have umpteen wide variety of selections while looking for top wedding photographers Delhi today. But there are several factors you need to be careful about before hiring a wedding photographer. Here is a guideline that would help you to find an excellent photographer besides hassles.

Things to Consider before hiring one

Even before you move ahead, to hunt down a perfect and professional photographer. Few mandates have been provided below to add on to your checklist.

  • Finalize the price range first

Once your wedding date has been fixed. Sit down and work on the budget that you can find the money to spend on your wedding. It will help you in parenting what form of picture bundle fits you the best. The proper photographer is any person who meets your expectation, no longer the different way round. You need to have a clear thought on what form of images style you appreciate if you want a pre-wedding shoot as well.

  • Shortlist four or five photographers and meet them in person

Shortlist 5 photographers you like. Arrange an assembly with them. Clear all your doubts and queries. Compare the sample works of the photographers. Please read the terms and conditions. The difference in the packages they offer. And so forth and then finalize the ideal one suiting your expectations.

  • Prioritize exceptional over quantity

Couples often make this mistake of overthinking the variety of pics positioned in their wedding ceremony album. And what would be the result? Quality will get a compromise. To avoid being so fussy about the range of snaps. However, say safe. After all, your album is not supposed to be a replica of your wedding day. It has to be a souvenir of the beautiful moments you had on your exceptional day. Hence, choose your photographer after thorough lookup and checking his/her contemporary work.

  • Sign a legal settlement or contract

Whatever you discuss with your photographer, make positive that you put them down in papers. It will assist you if there is a difficulty at a later stage. The legal agreement needs to say the range of hours of work, number of images, and delivery time. And a variety of human beings in the photography team, ownership of the photos, price approaches, associated terms, and more. You can find pattern wedding pictures services’ terms and conditions on-line when required.

  • Get the Postproduction Details

It usually takes at least a month to get all those photograph proofs again from your photographer. Why? Your photographer is shooting massive uncooked archives far more significant than your traditional JPG. Shooting uncooked documents gives your photographer a more exceptional ability to correct the photo. It also takes a longer time to upload, system, and edit all those files (to fix color stages and so on). It varies. But many photographers say they spend an additional 40 hours modifying snapshots from a single wedding. So it can take up to six to eight weeks (or longer, relying on the photographer and how busy they are) to get proofs back.

Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer

  • What exactly is protected in your packages?
  • When evaluating fees, tests, whether prints, albums, and proofs, as correctly as extra coverage. Such as engagement shoots. They can all alter the charges significantly.
  • How many hours of insurance do we get?
  • What is the cost of overtime? If overtime is going to price you a ton, you may be capable of designing their hours accordingly.
  • Will you be my real photographer? Or will it be one of your associates?
  • Do you have backup photographers who will shoot the wedding ceremony if you are sick?

Qualities your Wedding Photographer Should Have

The following mentioned are some of the essential qualities a wedding photographer should have.

  1. Creativity and Imagination

Photography is a shape of art. Therefore, it requires an innovative mind and plenty of imagination. A desirable photographer must be in a position to seem to be at something ordinary. Or even extraordinary, and discover a million one of a kind methods to interpret what he’s seeing and carry those interpretations in stunning and momentous photos.

  1. An Eye for Detail

A precise photographer ought to have a very eager eye for elements to ensure that all factors within the photo. Such as the lighting, the composition, the subject. And the whole lot else in between work together harmoniously to bring the proper imaginative and prescient or message.

  1. Patience and Flexibility

Whatever images field you may be in, persistence (lots of it) is always an integral high-quality to have. It would help if you were patient to wait for the ideal lighting. You want to be patient enough to deal with crying babies, hyperactive animals, and demanding clients. And most of all, you need to be patient enough to keep trying when you sincerely can’t get the proper shot.

In addition to patience, you also need to be flexible. The two characteristics go hand in hand. You need to act as an active person, ready enough to deal with something that comes your way. You want to work flexibly to make the first-rate undesirable conditions.

  1. Good Socializing Skills

Being a professional photographer means working with people. Whether it is a client, a model, or even a fellow photographer. Thus, being a proper photographer requires suitable human skills. You’ll additionally need to community to achieve consumers and partnerships. So, knowing how to join and talk efficiently with others is imperative.

  1. Passion

Passion makes the photographer. It will continuously make you work a little harder. It pushes you a little farther and tries to make you higher than you had been the day before.

Conclusion

Though it seems tiring, it can be fruitful when you choose the right photographer. Moreover, make a checklist for yourself before ensuring to finalize a specific photographer. Go through all the available testimonials and details. After all, it’s your big day!

Have you ever seen some excellent wedding photo books and wondered how the photographer managed to pull off those outstanding images? It does take skill to get beautiful shots.

If someone is shooting weddings, they are probably a professional photographer. However, there is no reason you can not take some awesome looking pictures at the wedding to make your Instagram glow.

Bride and groom in focus

Sometimes, it can be tricky to actually move the line of people to get in the front row to take a picture of the wedding couple. Although it can be tricky, it is doable. And it will pay off with excellent shots.

At every wedding, the couple has the central role. Try to take photos of them while they say their wedding vows or take the first dance. You can take a selfie with them, but being a bit more creative will get you better-looking shots, and you will be regarded as the most original guest.

Decorations are there for a reason

The reason the amusement of guests and a visual impression. You can also use it for your advantage to create great pictures. Put your camera near those decorations to get some out of focus shots of the wedding celebration.

Using colored ribbons as a real-life vignette will guarantee sharp-looking images, and it literally doesn’t cost anything. It is also quite easy to pull off.

Using those decorations as a piece of creative personal jewelry can be quite a thing if you are a fan of selfies. You can use them and take photos with your friends, and everyone will love it.

The wedding cake is too good to miss out on it

My favorite part of the wedding is the moment when the bride and groom cut the cake. It is usually a substantial piece of cake, and it is an actual mini-event at the wedding.

Try getting as close as possible to the table where the first cut is being made and snap some shots. The lighting should be quite well since everyone will be looking at the couple, so the light show will be on point.

After the first cut is being done, you can take a picture of the piece of the cake on your table. It won’t be as spectacular as the whole cake, but it can be a small yet delicious detail.

Food is excellent, and it looks good

Personally, I love macro photography. And it all started out with the food. It is not just the food I cook and prepare for my family, but also the food I order in restaurants.

I love trying out new dishes and taking pictures of them as well. Of course, it can be tricky to make a food photo at a wedding. Depending on the culture, it can be considered impolite or outright rude.

However, if social conventions allow taking pictures of food without repercussions, give it a go. You will be surprised by some lovely images you can get this way.

Since weddings are all about visual impression, the food will be arranged in served appealingly. So why don’t you use it and create some unusual food photos?

Tuxedo and a wedding gown

This tip will work best if you are a close friend of the bride or the groom. Wedding attire is specific clothes that are made out of high-quality materials often with unique details.

Therefore, it is a great thing to take a picture of, especially using a close-up mode. You can also try out an angle that will allow the camera to take notice of those beautiful visual details in the clothing.

For example, try to take the full grasp of a wedding gown or some features in the groom’s tie. These small, yet exquisite details make a difference between average and excellent shots.

Of course, the clothes bride and groom will wear at the wedding will be visible during a ceremony. However, if you want to stand out from everyone’s photos, try to take some shots before the ceremony. In this way, you will be able to get some more unique looking shots.

Smiling faces everywhere

Receptions are a great thing, especially if you are an outgoing person. Almost everyone is tipsy and happy, and people are dancing and enjoying themselves.

Use this relaxing atmosphere to make the most out of it. Photographing action is way more interesting than capturing static scenes. Get on the dance floor and take some shots of everyone dancing, or even making a toast.

If you really like to sneak, get around the band that’s performing live and get some close-up shots to create the atmosphere. If you are creative, opportunities are endless.

Experiment with videos

Although the article is all about photography, taking some time to take a short video of the wedding receptions is one extra tip to consider. Some parts of the ceremony certainly require more than just a shot.

And since even phone cameras can now shoot at least 2k videos, there’s no reason not to use it. For example, the first dance of a bride and a groom is a mini-event at the ceremony worth recording as a video.

While you are doing it, try to use the pro tip and take photos simultaneously, since most modern cameras will allow you to do it.

This way you will have your cake and eat it too. You get to record the event and manage to pull off outstanding shots right at the scene. Feel free to visit lenses pro if you need some photography tips.

So, there you have it. These tips are there to make a wedding you are attending a bit more engaging and exciting. It is always a great idea to simply enjoy the moment and be present. And you should aim for it, most of the time.

But if you are a photo enthusiast or just someone who likes to have good shots of an event you are attending, follow these tips. They will undoubtedly improve the quality of your images. In return, you will make your photo portfolio more vibrant and detailed, even if it is just for Instagram.

As you might expect, one of the many reasons people look forward to seasonal events and family holiday party is the food. When planning food and drinks for an event, it is essential to go beyond the most obvious menu, and to provide your guests with a delicious meal to enjoy. Unfortunately, the food at most seasonal events is substandard and is often not very imaginative. For special events, catering should be flawless and creative. The following tips will help you make your event’s menu stand out, and give your guests a reason to appreciate you more.

Let’s break it down.

Know Your Guests

Before planning the food and drinks for a seasonal event, it is essential to understand the guest profile. For example, corporate leaders are used to attending at least a couple of events every month. They have grown accustomed to overcooked chicken and wilted vegetables as the standard. As a responsible host, it is your job to plan a menu that creates a sophisticated dining experience. To make this happen, think about the answers to the following questions.

  • What is the professional level of the guests?
  • How many times a year do they attend events like ours?
  • Which area do they live in?
  • What are dishes that might be new and interesting for them?

Know Their Preferences

Your event caterer can better decide the menu by understanding your guest profile. The following tips will make things easier for you and your event catering company.

  • Senior individuals prefer a mild and straightforward menu.
  • Health-conscious individuals prefer seafood and green vegetables over something oily and spicy.
  • The young and energetic like to have something adventurous, with a slight spiciness to please their taste buds. For the younger crowd, holiday party catering items like healthy wraps or turkey lettuce cups should be crowd pleasers.

The goal here is to identify the food items your guests would like to have, depending upon the theme of your event.  

Give Them Choices

Regardless of how much time and money you invest in planning the event’s menu, you won’t be able to satisfy the guests if you only have a single entree. To ensure your guests’ enjoyment, your event caterer should come up with multiple food options. If you are stuck in such a situation, the following guidelines will come in handy.

  • Offer your guests at least two or even three entrees to choose from.
  • For the salads, offer different salad dressings.
  • Condiments such as salt, black pepper, ketchup, soy sauce, and mustard should be kept on the side of the table.
  • Offer at least two desserts. One being indulgent and the other being healthy.

Take Special Diet Needs Into Consideration

Due to increased health awareness nowadays, guests have more dietary preferences than ever. So, before planning a menu for your seasonal event, it is essential to make sure whether your guests have any special nutritional needs. This will allow the catering manager to address those needs before placing an order. Some of the most common dietary considerations are listed below.

  • Vegetarianism and dietary preferences by choice
  • Religious preferences
  • Food intolerances
  • Food allergies like lactose or gluten

Include Seasonal Items

When determining the food items and beverages, it is crucial to take into consideration the season and the time of the year. Take special care if you are planning an event in winter or spring. Also, take note of the location of the event venue. Adding native dishes to your menu is a great way to give it a touch of innovation. To add extra flavor to your event’s menu list, make sure to include fresh seafood and some regional produce. Not only will it enhance the menu but also add a touch of the locale to it.

International Cuisine

If your event has a particular theme, it allows the event manager as well as the chef to incorporate regional and international foods and beverages to your event’s menu. It will make your event stand out, give it some flair, and please the guests at the same time. Some of the most common ethnic and regional cuisines are mentioned below.

  • Chinese
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Mexican
  • Mediterranean
  • South Asian

The Menu Should Fit the Event Schedule

Sometimes the best thing that can help you decide the menu for your seasonal event is the date and time. Try introducing foods and drinks that perfectly suited to a specific time of the day. Here are some meal examples.

Lunch Boxes

If the duration of the event is 30 minutes to one hour for eating and drinking, arrange lunch boxes. They are handy and easy for your budget.

Buffet

Buffet meals are perfect if the eating and drinking time is one hour or a little over this duration.

Breakfast and Lunch

If you are planning a lunch or breakfast, arrange food items that can sustain your guests for a long time, especially if your event goes well into the day.

The Setup Should Be Comfortable

The venue of the event should be comfortable, as should the event, as well as the catering. If you have arranged for a full-service meal at a corporate event, the tables will soon be covered with plates, glasses, notebooks, pens, and pencils. In the case of a cocktail reception, round tables can only accommodate a small number of drinks and plates.

Because of this, consider the following setup tips.

  • If you have a boardroom, it should not have more than 15 people, or it will become congested.
  • U-Shape tables are comfortable, but they are not suitable for buffet meals.
  • For presentations that go through lunch, the classroom setup will be perfect.
  • For panel discussions, arrange a banquet setup.

Conclusion

When planning the menu for a seasonal event, try not to skimp on any of the guidelines mentioned above. The most important thing that will make your event menu stand out is the presentation of food. Regardless of whether you have arranged a buffet or a plated meal, the appearance should be colorful and vibrant. It should also tempt the guests to dig in, right off the bat. This is your opportunity to win over your guests.

Someone rightly said – “If you dance with your heart, your body will follow”. It is your bestie’s wedding and you got to be the one who enjoys the most. You have all the possible reasons to dance your heart out and make the others dance with you as well. But before you get there on the dance floor, you must know that your steps are worthy of appreciation and not laughter. Keep it tasteful here in a state of harmony with the sort of music that is being played at the reception venue. This may be the point at which somebody would approach you and would need to hit the dance floor with you.

One of the purest and the most special moments in a person’s life has to be the one in which they finally get married to the love of their life. This is one of those things that happen only once (or so they say), and people are bending over backwards to ensure that every little thing gets done just right. There is little space for mistakes and stress levels are incredibly high, which is why it’s always a good idea to keep a few magic formulas in your sleeve. Here are a few things you should keep in mind when choosing the right catering for your wedding.

The type of catering you need
Besides great music and spectacular photos, plenty of good quality food and as well as a wide variety of sensational tastes are the key essentials of a wedding. A good caterer will know how to meet your expectations and follow all of your ideas. Knowing the overall taste of your guests will help you choose the right dishes and spices. Should you go for lighter seasonal dishes or more traditional meals? There isn’t a simple answer because it depends on a few things: the style of your wedding, the season of the year, and the place where you’re getting married. One thing’s for sure, however: you should always choose fresh ingredients, even if it means spending more money on catering in the first place.

Listen to your friends
With so many different catering options to choose from, it can be a real challenge to find the right one, so you might want to ask for a second opinion. A personal recommendation for professional and reliable catering services is often worth much more than your blind guess, so don’t hesitate to ask your friends for a recommendation. Usually, the best guide is someone’s personal experience of a caterer’s work, so start doing your research on time.

Ask more questions
You might be very laid back in your approach, or you could come to a meeting with a list of highly specific demands. It shouldn’t matter – an experienced caterer should already know how to approach their potential client’s demands, and as their potential future client, it is your right to want to know more about their job and offer. Don’t hesitate to ask to see their license issued by the health department and their liquor license (if you are planning to serve alcohol at your wedding). In addition, you could also ask where they get their food from and what way they prepare it. This is especially important if you have guests with health issues and food allergies.

Give it a try
Even though this is something that goes without saying for most people, you should ask to taste a sample of their suggested wedding menus. The tasting will also help you make our decision because you will see first-hand what your guests will be eating on your big day. What is more, this also gives you a chance to ask them to change something you don’t like and perhaps even add something you would like. It is easy to do so if the caterer you’re thinking of hiring runs a restaurant or hotel.

To sum up – have faith in yourself and trust your instincts when it comes to catering services you want to choose. By asking the right questions before you make the decision, you will ensure that you pick the right one, even if two caterers happen to look identical on a paper. Not only will you avoid a big disappointment, but you will also ensure that everyone remembers the good food they will eat. Spending a few coins more for a trustworthy caterer is always a way to go if you can afford it.

The biggest party you’ll ever throw will typically be everything but gentle to our planet. Brand new and abnormally expensive attires, excessive food waste, throwaway decor, and plenty of other environmental repercussions. Yes, weddings are not usually eco-friendly events, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot reflect your sustainable values in your wedding details.

You may think “green wedding” is too much legwork, but it doesn’t have to be. Take note of the eco-wedding ideas and tips below and spend the most special day of your life without a pinch of guilt!

Choose eco-friendly invitations
There are so many ways to invite people other than killing dozens of trees and polluting the planet, particularly now when wedding vendors are becoming more environmentally conscious. There are companies printing invitations on recycled paper, and there are those taking it one step farther when it comes to sustainability efforts, planting one tree for every received order. You can also add a cute green note on the bottom or back of the invitation, like “save me, frame me or recycle me”, raising awareness and sharing your sustainable values with your friends and family. And finally, if you want to go completely green, go paperless. Email invites and online save-the-dates where guests can RSVP on your wedding website don’t only save on paper and postage, but are very practical as well.

Pick an eco-friendly venue
Whether the wedding is green or not highly depends on the venue. One of the best ways to cut down on energy is to get married outdoors, like on a farm, vineyard or beach, with plenty of natural lighting. However, an outdoor event isn’t for everybody and in some cases it’s not an option due to weather. There are tons of ways to go green with indoors venues as well. Start with having both the ceremony and the reception in one place and thus cut back on fuel emissions. Look for sustainable hotels and eco-friendly restaurants, such as a magical Vaucluse restaurant, with picturesque natural surroundings and deliciously prepared meals from ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients. Moreover, the Botanica Vaucluse is committed to local growers and suppliers, offering freshly picked and prepared fruits and veggies, as well as a range of house-made and organic drinks from various Australian regions.

Go green with wedding attires
Yes, of course that the wedding dress is the center piece of the event, and most often the most expensive one. It’s natural and understandable to have been dreaming of a perfect wedding gown since you were a little girl, and to not settle for less when the day finally comes. The average wedding dress costs a fortune, and is also very often made overseas with questionable labor practices. But there are ways to have both, a gorgeous look and a clear conscience. Reusing a dress by going vintage or pre-loved is the best eco option, but not the only one. If you wish to have your very own dress, seek out designers committed to environmentally friendly fabrics and ethical production.

Cut down on waste
The most challenging part of hosting an eco-friendly wedding is handling all the waste. Starting with unavoidable non-reusable decor, through plastic packaging, to fireworks, events like weddings hardly keep up with sustainability and ethics. Nevertheless, don’t stress out, there’s a lot you can do to make sure your wedding euphoria affects the environment as little as possible. Instead of littering your exit toss, go for the alternative of paper confetti and bags of biodegradable, water-soluble substitutes.Or even greener, take a plant-based approach and have your guests throw rose petals, fresh herbs and micro flowers, creating stunning, photogenic, yet eco-friendly scenery for the exit toss.

Although it may sound like mission impossible, it’s more than possible to stay loyal to your conscious lifestyle, sustainable values and eco-friendliness while walking down the aisle. Follow the guide above, and have a dream wedding feeling totally guilt-free when it comes to the environment!
