Wildflowers are the flowers known to grow in the wilderness of the nature not being intentionally planted or seeded. I guess that originally all the flowers have been wild, growing their beauty in wide opened spaces of nature and when people have seen their wonderful blooming and the way they enchanted the eyes and the soul of the viewers, they have started to seed them and have them growing around their houses. Not to mention that wind has played an important role as well as the insects with the pollen carried here and there, spreading species of flowers from one place to another.

Organizing your wedding you need this element to be part of your wedding atmosphere, the element that brings vividness to everything it touches, the floristic element of the wedding celebration. The wildflower wedding flowers are somehow different than the ones that are commonly met in the wedding events. The presence of wilderness is a way to borrow a part of the freedom that’s pulsing in the veins of nature, the same vibrations being transmitted to the floral arrangements as well. A bridal bouquet for instance, containing wildflowers can confer the bride to wear freshness and a uniqueness rarely seen in the hands of the brides.

Planning your wedding outdoors is the good reason for you to include in the decoration of your bouquet (be it done in a cascading style, or loose-tied, or crescent, or posy style) wildflower wedding flowers. You needn’t worry about the availability of these flowers; you can find them either in the gardens of your family and friends (those flowers that are growing without being cultivated), in fact there are so many, that you can even coordinate their colors to the ones of your wedding gown or to the ones to belong to the flowers existing in your bridesmaids bouquets.

The options for these wildflowers do not need to be that thoroughly defined, as long as they can be found in a variety of sorts; the ideas of using them as additional decorations come by merely looking at them and instantly you would get the clue of how to be used in your bridal bouquet. These wildflowers are the ones to speak for themselves, they are the ones that can show you the way to beautiful creations of bouquets, of unique styles of arrangement, so, again, you needn’t worry.

But just in case you are determined to use wildflower wedding flowers and you still don’t come up with something of a novelty in regard of creation, then the assistance of a professional florist will be of some help for you or even the bridal sites that advice about the floral element of wedding celebration. As you can see, everything is at your hand, all you have to do is relax, take a deep breath and start browsing for the flowers of your wedding, be they wildflowers or flowers grown and cultivated by specialists. Either way, the flowers will be the ones to bring your wedding atmosphere the freshness and vitality in those parts that otherwise are filled with dullness and monotony of displaying.11

In the displaying of a wedding ceremony, many wedding couples choose to include as part of the entertainment program a video montage of their life, life that includes representative moments of their past. Some of these video montages are also planned by the bridal party, namely bridesmaids or groomsmen, or by the parents of the wedding couples, them being the keepers of long time forgotten memories of the times when bride and groom were babies, times of their growing up and of their first dates. All these memories contain emotional images of the figures that in the unfolding of the reception are the main characters to be depicted.

The best way to emphasize these flashes of life in an emotional manner is to incorporate songs for wedding video montage, songs that are part of the couple’s life or simply reveal in a musical tone through tunes and lyrics the important aspects of the specific video montage. Another best idea to have this video made is for the ones who organize it to be the family members. In this way the surprise for both the newly weds and the guests is guaranteed. Imagine how the wedding couple would feel in the middle of their reception party for the music to stop and everybody to be requested to take their seats while the video of their past life starts to unwind in front of their excited eyes and souls.

songs for wedding video montage 300x261 Songs For Wedding Video Montage
No one could affirm that this moment is other than loaded with emotions, with tears that sneak in the corner of the eyes and silently roll over the blushed cheeks, tears mixed with laughter at the sight of a baby boy and baby girl learning their first words, or their first steps, or the first anniversary parties with a lot of people gathered around the tiny face of an excited little boy and little girl… All these dear memories are dug up from the ashes of a memory that used to bury the lost in time moments that now come with the power of parental love and dedication.

Bride and groom, mothers and fathers, grannies, close friends they are all in there, so there is no way for one person to be left aside and not to be penetrated by the emotional feelings of such a video montage. Before editing the relevant images all in the same montage, you need to make a list of the moments that mark the different periods that you plan to include in the video. The periods can be represented by the following parts: baby period, the growing up ages, family pictures, friends gathering, first dates and so on. The point is that this editing shouldn’t be that long and boring, and if you can include at some parts all the people present in the wedding’s reception the better!

To suggest some songs for wedding video montage would be too long of a list, but here are however few of them related to the importance of the part meant to be displayed: – for the baby songs – “Butterflies Kisses”, “Greatest love of all”, “Tiny dancer”; for the growing up – “My girl”, “Go your own way”, “You are the sunshine of my life”; for the family pictures – “Time of my life”, “I’lll be there for you”, “Circle of life”; for friends gathering and first dates – “Forever and always”, “Uptown girls”, “Can’t help falling in love”, “Love of a lifetime”, “Beautiful day”.11

It is said that wedding planning should be loaded with fun and excitement; with excitement I agree, but with the fun included in it… well, I don’t know about that! I witnessed once the excitement of a friend of mine; she had just coming back from a date with her fiancé and was all blushed and breathless while telling us about the way her upcoming event was fixed in regard to the day; it was chosen the day that celebrated one year of the day they had first met. And that was the sparkle which lit up the anxiety of a fire: from that moment on I remembered her to be all stressed and in doubt whether her wedding day would be or not the most beautiful day of her life.
<-336x280 Large Rectangle - center->
I offered my hand every time I had the chance to do it just because I could see how mixed up she proved to be so many times I happened to talk to her. Sensing her like this I gradually insinuated myself in the planning of her wedding event, although she didn’t want to accept anybody’s help in this matter. She was quite positive that she could handle it next to her fiancé; after all they weren’t the first pair in the world to do it that way. I assured her that my help was merely limited to that of drawing the wedding planner check list which would help in its turn to keep track of the items she had already accomplished in her sinuous road of preparation.

wedding planner checklist 300x171 Wedding Planner Check List
Maybe because it wouldn’t have been much of an outsider implication, had she so easily accepted my involvement, but regardless what was she thinking I was glad to do something for her in this regard. To draw the wedding planner check list, I needed to have the copy of the planner exactly how she had it previously conceived. And according to its items, I was supposed to do the checkups following the receipts, the notes of the order, and everything that was to be done in terms of arrangements, of hiring, of contracting the variety of vendors etc.

Besides, this check list was a necessity both in tracking the steps and taking a part of the burden from my friend’s shoulders. Each time there was something to be done I would let her know about the thing with at least few days in advance, for her to have the time to physically and spiritually prepare (I still have her frightened look fresh in my mind, even now after two months from the ending of her wedding, which by the way, has proved to be quite success!). But to me, her way of being wasn’t at all a surprise: I had always known her to be a little scared of everything that was new to her knowledge, especially on the occasion of her own wedding celebration, which was supposed to mean so much to her and her beloved one.

I couldn’t say that the checklist itself was an easy thing to do and to keep track of the variety of items with all the wedding parts that are comprised in the overall aspect of the wedding event was quite demanding, but I liked to think that somehow my involvement had been of some help, and even if I had spent a lot of time in researching for extra items that shouldn’t have left aside, I was still glad to see that all our efforts had lead to a day that ended up in glory that was carried till the present days of their happily married life.11

One way to cut costs of your wedding planning, just from the beginning of your preparations, is to find a manner in which to create wedding invitations for cheap. A friend of mine, once settled on the day when her wedding celebration should begin, started with the creation of her wedding cards with three months prior her wedding day. I remember that when I received her wedding card and I was quite surprised with the way she managed to create the invitation. It was an A4 format of one page card folded three times in order to fit a window format of an envelope. The background of the card was colored in slightly defined orange-rusty maple leaves (her wedding day was set to be in one of the beautiful fall months – September) leaving empty space on the left corner of the upper side of the card where she had placed the photo of hers and her fiancé’s.

The wording was created in a black lettered font for the ceremony of the wedding including the hour, the day and the name of the church and further on the right side of the page at the bottom, the photo of two wedding rings held by two lovely doves which was positioned next to the dark red colored font of a wording for the wedding reception. The reception was located in a restaurant close to my residential area and to me was simple to reach at, therefore the use of driving instructions note was futile, but yet they did it anyway since the pattern of the invitations was one and the same for all the guests regardless of their living place.

wedding invitations for cheap 300x300 Wedding Invitations For Cheap
The inclusion of driving instructions is mandatory in the composition of a wedding invitation as well as the RSVP card. The latter one being of strict necessity in order for the couple to know how far, in regard to the costs, they can go with the wedding expenditures. When I called her to announce my attendance I congratulated her on the occasion of the upcoming event and also on the creation of her wedding invitations which looked very inspired and lovely at the same time. I inquired her in regard to the costs for the cards, and she told me that actually she had managed to make the wedding invitations for cheap, less cheap than she had ever expected. She ended up buying only the card stocks and the envelopes and after that she started to do the overall design.

She told me that she was previously browsing the sites, and she got a lot of pretty good ideas from there, but since she wanted to have a very personalized aspect of her wedding cards, she begun first by downloading their photo and after that with a graphic program she took out only the contours of their faces, rendering in the end the effect of the graphic colored reproduction of their faces.  The fall leaves she had found in Clipart graphic images and she inserted them with a slightly readjusting of their contours as well, and the image of the doves had followed the same route of graphical effect and insertion.  I congratulated her once again on her ideas that helped her to considerably reduce the costs for this important item of the first steps in a wedding planning.11

Weddings, from the beginning of their planning, offer quite challenging situations either on creating the wedding cards or coming up with ideas for wedding cakes. In fact, the first and the biggest challenge is offered by the choice of a theme. Fixing the date for your wedding celebration is the start that is given for the competition; you are in a constant competition with other weddings that were held out there in the world of brides-to-be, wishing for your wedding day to be the one of a kind event that appeals to your guests through the aspect presented by your wedding invitation.

The temptation to come with something new and beautiful is the one that stimulates imagination; hence the creation of the innovative wedding cards, for this matter. Everything is connected to the theme of your wedding, to the ideas that this theme generates, and in regard to this you need to keep the flow of creativity to confer your big day the coherence in style and decoration. Having a floral theme chosen for your wedding you can make the best out of this theme; speculating in the floristic area of representation, you can come with different patterns, either stylization or simply picturing the reality of a bloom. I, for instance, have seen so many flower wedding invitations that I couldn’t not remark the way artists or amateurs speculate around this generous topic: the flowers.

But I have to admit that beside the stylized way of floral embellishment of a wedding card, there is one which really got an impression on me: the watercolor creation of flower wedding invitation. Flowers like purple iris, lavender orchids, orange calla lily, various wedding bouquets, all have been so delicately caught in the image of vellum background of a card, the types of flowers themselves in their displaying being a great source of inspiration for the font used for wording of the invitation.

This special wedding invitations are designed by the hand of an artist, as one can see from the first glance at these cards; an ordinary eye couldn’t catch the way a petal is detached from the bloom falling delicately aside touched by the airy aspect of a light green leaf. Or the image of a bridal bouquet so ethereal surprised on watercolor paper having the specific text written on vellum with fonts that go so well with the aspect of the flowers. Only the image of a real bloom with its unique color next to a bunch of greeneries bordering the card, wrapping the wording of the invitation in a motion of ballet dancing, can be a great way for you to send the message of your special event.

The artistry of the flower wedding invitations is displayed with so many beautiful, elegant, delicate and somehow simple means, going from the use of embossed paper with floral motifs, to blooms pressed on the cardstock of the invitations and stuck behind a transparent foil that is shown to have a soft color to match with the bloom’s. Variations of design are plenty as well as of displaying, it is only up to your preferences to choose the wedding card that appeals to you and define the most of your personality and wedding theme.11

Internet access, since its releasing on the PC consumer market, has always proved to be a helpful tool for those who need to find something in a matter of seconds and at the same time for those who needed to make their business image become worldwide known. Websites, in this respect, have been provided tags in order for the desirers to locate easier pages of the specific item ready to be set at their disposal through the search engine of the Internet connection.  Browsing Internet sites can be a time saver, as well as a time consumer; there are moments when you feel like you get lost in the vast amount of information that is displayed in front of you; there are these ‘links’ that carry you through the labyrinth of more and more news, but knowing that their only purpose is to serve your needs.

The same impression I have got while helping my friend browsing on the internet in search of her wedding dress. She has accessed so many bridal sites with options of wedding gowns online, that at a certain moment, as she has told me meanwhile, she felt tired of not coming up with a final decision. She has visited the sites with the wide range of wedding dresses, the sites including all sorts of models such as: traditional, informal, modest, temple ready, plus size, she has reached till the sites which offered variations of the white color of the attire. Dresses to be worn by non-traditional brides-to-be in different choices of color and fabric and design. As such she has seen and she has been quite impressed with choices of blue, light yellow, red, burgundy as well as combinations of white with blue, red, green and red; all of  them looked beautiful and compete with each other in design, creative imagination and style.

wedding gowns online 190x300 Wedding Gowns Online
Wedding gowns online present themselves through useful ways to have them accessed, to be ordered online, not before choosing the size or ask for the size you need (most of them have this option for you to order a dress adding your size, even if the site is not displaying the size you’ve got the specific item). These sites are generally divided in sections of different types of wedding gowns, presented either in collection or according to their design. There are gowns to be cheaper than others, others come in discount, other are second-hand with unbelievable prices for a gown that women had worn once and then gave it in perfect shape to be sold to another bride-to-be.

Therefore, choices are so many, so tempting, so one-of-a-kind, that a future bride finds it rather hard to decide, even if she has from the very beginning a pretty good idea on what she would like to wear. This maze of bridal sites has caught also my friend’s attention and the moment she called me asking for help I was at a loss not knowing how to help. These wedding gowns appeal to me in such a big number that I, instead of helping her, made her feel more confused. Finally she got the help of a fashion expert in the bridal department, who assisted her with everything that was there necessary for her, for her big day, for her fiancé who would be there waiting for her at the end of the aisle to swear his love for the rest of their days.11

Wedding cakes are the items in the displaying of a wedding that carry with themselves the symbol of supporting and sharing. This symbol is expressed by the gesture of cutting the cake, the one that comes with the image of a bride, now pronounced wife, holding the knife, her hand supported by the one of her groom, by now husband already, and followed by the feeding each other with a piece of the cake’s slice. Because of its symbolic meaning, wedding cake has been and still is regarded at with great deal of importance. This is the reason why bakers try to find the most unique ways to decorate the cake in the manner that appeals to the wedding couples both from the edible point of view and design.

I have a friend working in the wedding cakes field, but she is responsible only with the details regarding the delivery of such cakes. However, she has seen many times how thoroughly and sometimes frustrating such a job is, especially the part that requires decorations and steadiness of a 3 or 4 tiered wedding cake. The decorators are the most challenged persons in the bakery houses, their work has to reflect exactly the desire of the customers, who many times leave the inspiration in the hands of decorators, giving only a small hint of what should their wedding cake look like.

flowers in wedding cakes 257x300 Flowers In Wedding Cakes
The most interesting part in regard to the decoration seems to be the creation of hand crafted flowers in wedding cakes, the ones that look so indistinguishable from the real ones, the flowers that can be preserved for a lifetime (due to their sugarly structure) as an added element to the whole chain of memories to belong to your wedding day. My friend told me that there are so many couples who don’t even have a clue on how their wedding cake should be, either to be decorated with fresh flowers or have artificial ones, either to have that color of icing or the other one.

But the cake decorators and designers are there to assist the wedding couples in finding ideas, many of the ideas being strongly supported by their experience, in this way offering advices on how flowers in wedding cakes affect or not the taste of the icing, as there are fresh flowers that are not supposed to be used as cake decorations. All these details are known to the cake decorators, since flowers, as beautiful as they look being used fresh on the wedding cake can have in their pistils some sort of pollen which can be dangerous once swallowed. Their duty is to inform the couples about the possibility of using different types of fresh blooms that even if they are desired by the couples to be used as the elements to continue the series of floral wedding decoration, they can be however poisonous.

There is the option of using artificial flowers in the decoration of the wedding cakes, be they sugar made or silk made, they still resemble beautifully to the real ones, so be sure that the aspect of your wedding cake will not have to suffer in case you decide for the cake decorators to use other style of blooms than the fresh ones.11

Rock and Roll as a style of music has emerged in the early 50s as a result of the combination of sounds to belong to jazz, country, gospel music and since its release on the market of music industry it has been the object of many disputes due both to the way of being expressed and the non-conformity it lies within the limits of its expression. But it is a known fact that although it has been and still is rejected by certain rules of morality defined only by a small mass of our modern society, rock and roll continues to exist in forms that have suffered adjustments related to the continuous purpose of the musicians to accede in a musical field that has always been different that the others. This tendency has degenerated into a trend which represented the young players to adopt styles that not only are they good to be listened to, but they also lack the musicality of a coherent displaying of notes.

If you are into rock and roll music, then you would probably be more then willing to insert in the atmosphere of your wedding the rhythms of rock and roll, but as any rocker who respects himself, you would definitely choose the rock and roll that has become the classical one even if time has lied its dust all over the vinyl discs which used to host the rhythms of good, old rock and roll. But for you to have your wedding filled with the sounds of rock, you definitely need to organize a less formal wedding, that kind of wedding which allows people feel cozy with themselves in an atmosphere of total relaxation and entertainment.

rock and roll wedding songs 223x300 Rock And Roll Wedding Songs
You have to pay also a close attention to the details; some of them could indicate to you that there are some of your guests who wouldn’t be very comfortable in the presence of rock and roll rhythms, “all that noise for nothing”, as they might say… So, in this regard you must either create separate wedding invitations, the ones for the ‘not young any more’ guests to be sent to the people to attend to your wedding ceremony, and the other ones for the ‘young enough not to be disturbed by rock music’ to be sent as reception wedding cards, or to simply invite them all and play a softer version of rock and roll.

But again, rock and roll is the music of freedom of expression and manifestation, maybe you feel like jumping around on the sounds of Van Halen’s “Jump” or shout on the sounds of Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell” and because of a grandma that can not stand loud music you see yourself compelled to refrain yourself from expressing your own personality; and why should you? Is a wedding party, when everybody is supposed to feel good and celebrate in the best way possible the reunion of man and woman in the act of marriage, so, go ahead and enjoy!

The rock and roll wedding songs present themselves in a variety of songs more or less relevant for a wedding celebration; but there are however some of them which seem to be the most favored among the whole list of options for rock and roll wedding songs: Billy Idol – “White wedding”, Eric Clapton – “Wonderful tonight”, “I’ll be there for you” – Bon Jovi, “You Shook Me All Night Long” – performed by AC/DC, “Pour Some Sugar on Me” – by Def Leppard, “Pretty woman” – Roy Orbison and the list can go on and on in a whole variety of options.11

Before you started to get involved in the planning of different events of your family and friends, you had no clue that there is actually a job which is called event planner and browsing the websites you find out that there is also a better, more complex and more challenging version of this job which is identified as the wedding planner. You have attended to a single wedding event in your life and you remember that you have enjoyed celebrating the wedding of your cousin who was wearing such a beautiful and elegant dress that it is still fresh in your mind, though four years have already passed since the event.

So with so much spare time on your hands, you begin to look for the possibilities to become a wedding planner, a job that will bring you the satisfaction of working in a field in which you have always seen yourself performing. But before you reach the sites that open online applications for wedding planner classes, you need to see if you have what it takes in order to become one of these planners. The main features that characterize a person as a good planner are excellent interpersonal abilities, the organizational skills, creativity and desire to be all the time up to date with the most recent releases in the field of wedding. The first three features apply to you, you are aware of this because you have the family and the friends who can vouch for you; they have always shown their gratitude toward the way you have managed to plan their events, and besides, you have seen the faces of the guests, all shiny and relaxed in an environment that could make them feel at their ease.

become a wedding planner 300x196 Become A Wedding Planner
As to the updating with the recent releases in wedding field, you don’t fit in this pattern of a feature as it has never been related to the events you have organized. It is true that you have done some researches in the filed of party invitations, new tips to organize parties and to choose themes for the given events, but as long as weddings haven’t belonged to your area of interest, you can not say that you needed to be kept updated in this field. Your friends advice you that maybe it would be a better idea if you stuck to the job as an event planner, but you find the wedding planning a field more complex and somehow more connected to an atmosphere that has to do with family reunions, reflecting a certain intimacy that reminds you of the Christmas times spent in the middle of your own family with all the peers coming over to celebrate the holy day.

Deciding once and for all on the wedding planning, you finally begin to look for the courses organized by different Bridal Associations and Accredited Wedding Institutions in order to assist the persons interested to become a wedding planner from the professional point of view. These courses are offered both online and on daily classes’ attendance and by the end of them, students get a diploma to certify their training in the wedding planning. Maybe these courses won’t be much of a problem, but performing as a wedding planner could be. You will need to get the experience required and in this regard you have to work first as an employee in the field, for only later to be sure to become one of the professionals existing the field of wedding planning.11

The wording of the wedding invitations is probably the important aspect of your invitation card that draws the attention of your guests, showing the respect and the honor you, as a couple or parents of the couple have in the hope that the guest will attend to the upcoming happy event. In this regard, wording can be done either by the parents or by the wedding couple. It is most common for the parents to coordinate the wording, although many times the design of the wedding invitations is created or selected by the wedding couple itself.

If we consider that the theme of the wedding is chosen by the young couple, the attire, the flowers, the menu, the cake, the music are also objects of their choices, then why parents interfere in the process of creating the wording for the invitation cards? OK, there might occur situations where parents pay for these cards, but this doesn’t draw them the status of author’s rights over the mentioned items. After all, it is their children big event, they decide what is there right to be specified in the invitation cards, most of them wanting probably to express their feelings that have lead them to the conclusion that they can not live one without the other, or maybe they simply need to reflect their love in the overall aspect of the wedding invitations, in this way drawing a better attention and interest toward their special event.

wedding invitations wording 300x252 Wedding Invitations Wording
Wedding invitations wording should be a task to be left mainly in the hands of bride and groom even if there is that excitement that governs their soul in regard to the planning and all. Not to mention that the couple will have the feeling that time is not at all on their side, which is not necessarily true, but due to the richness of details they need to take care and the emotions that are running up and down their being, everything is kind of overreacted. But nevertheless, the wedding couple should be granted the honor and pleasure to do the wedding invitations wording, the one to be send as a messenger into the world of family, relatives and friends.

Once the theme of the wedding is set and you have to start with the planning, the detail of sending the wedding invitations is the first one to be taken care of.  In this regard you should begin the chasing after a design and style of your invitation cards and next to think of the proper wording. Depending on your theme or, if there isn’t any, on the style of your wedding (formal or non formal) you have to find the design that frames the wording which in its turn should go well with the style of card selected.

The wording can be achieved with your own words that do not necessary have to follow some patterns, though there is a certain etiquette in regard to the style of wording, but this etiquette is applied more to the traditional (formal) types of wedding. For all the rest of the wedding types, there is an endless range of wording, going from the various funny tones to the emotional ones; you just have to use your inspiration brought by the poetry of your romance, in this way reflecting also the feelings that got you into the decision of sealing your love with the celebration of a wedding.11
