Carlos Ramirez – the designer of the wonderful Liancarlo bridal brand had a great vision for his newest collection of wedding dresses released for this fall. The models he designed for 2012 – the cold season are luxurious and very, very elegant! We adore the shades he utilized for this line: platinum, shell, ivory, taupe, beige and pearl.

These nuances are ideal for the fall and winter weddings and they are perfect for celebrating a luxurious wedding. The collection is generous in original designs. The silhouettes follow the same line: fit and flare. But the cuts and the details are very unique for each case in part. This is what we love the most about a talented designer: the fact that he uses his imagination to create diverse silhouettes.

The locations are always more luxurious and also more elegant during this period. The options outdoors are not very many. Nevertheless, we’ve seen many newlyweds enjoying a whimsical reception outside the doors, in a more adventurous location, like in the mountains or in a forest. Not all couples are conservative about these things. Many modern brides and grooms prefer something less conventional and funkier.

Firms on the organization of celebrations call it a novelty in recent seasons, but in fact our ancestors tried to play a wedding in the fresh air and not indoors. The latter were small and could not accommodate all the guests. Now this tradition is revived, however. Marriage is desirable to carry out during the warm season, roughly from mid-May to late September. A whole garden filled with flowers and subtle flavors has a special charm. I am here to help you with some garden wedding ideas that will definitely create a special atmosphere.

First you need to choose the place where the celebration will be held. Recently, gardens are increasingly using various tents, lightly flavored with white chiffon and organza. They are very beautiful under the streaming breath of the warm breeze and create a sense of purity and freshness. This is a good addition to the decorative features to protect spouses from direct sunlight. Inside it is usually installed a temporary wooden flooring (if the surface is rough) or leave an open lawn. But for the bride and her girlfriends would not be very comfortable to walk on the grass with heels, so still need to consider a temporary floor.

If your garden has, then another special place to rest cannot hurt. Place a bench next to a pond or a gurgling fountain, where guests can relax and talk to each other. Also do not forget about the ‘warehouse’ for gifts – a table or stand, which is usually installed at the entrance to the tent.

Before you start, think how to decorate a garden. In the traditional, Oriental, Moroccan, South African or another style? Moroccan feast involves a riot of colors and smells. South, or, as it is called, Hawaiian, the ceremony involves an abundance of large flowers and for African parties require straw and bright colored ribbons.

Decorations must stand in the same style. When making a traditional wedding, only a few made use of contrasting colors together. For example, pink and blue, white and red, white and gold, red and gold. Moroccan celebrations are usually full of different color schemes – blue, yellow, red, orange and green. When decorating a Hawaiian wedding, you should pay particular attention to the subtle colors.

Balloons are the universal way of decorating the garden for any marriage, regardless of its style. They have a very impressive look, when any breeze causes them to dance in the fascinating, unique rhythm. These garden wedding ideas will probably set the entire atmosphere and will create that feeling of freshness and naturalness. Weddings in the garden provide a complete flight of fantasy and allow you to make the most unusual and colorful surprises.

Spaniards look forever young and blooming as evergreen orange tree, so in the traditional attire of the bride it is always present the orange color, usually in combination with black. Also orange flowers are woven in bride’s hair and bouquet. If you want to maintain the Spanish traditions, then after the ceremony the husband must offer his wife thirteen gold coins, a symbol of the future of family welfare and support.

At the banquet, the bride must dance with everyone who invites her but for this the man has to pay hard cash.  For a wedding banquet in the Spanish style is best, of course, to rent a restaurant specializing in Spanish cuisine. In such an institution would be the easiest to recreate the atmosphere of a sultry Spanish and authentic dishes to please the guests. Decorating the Spanish wedding will be done with flowers and fruits as well as brightly colored ribbons, but only of natural fabrics. The Spaniards, like the Italians, appreciate the natural beauty. The musical program must be discussed in advance with the musicians and if you really think everything through, you can revive the great Spanish music. Spanish wedding feast is usually accompanied by all sorts of toasts and games.

Wonderful Spanish tradition is to bake a special cake for wedding. It differs in size and resembles a huge outline of a human figure (or decorated with small figures). Around this bread turns a lot of wedding customs. The purpose of the young and their parents is to distribute during the wedding, all the bread to the last crumb. Not one piece should remain at the end of the celebration, otherwise the young will not have good luck.

Of course, you do not have to regale your guests with only one pie. Spanish cuisine is in fact an abundance of seafood and meat, lots of olive oil, tomatoes, peppers and garlic, rice and spices.  The excellent cuisine is very well complemented by the picture of Spanish wines and desserts: Catalan cream, milk cream, honey cookies, pestinos with anise and lemon, cooked in red wine, peaches, served with wine syrup, rum cakes and much more. These elegant wedding receptions will truly make you believe you are actually in Spain. Spanish wedding is a bright holiday, full of jokes and dancing. It is an excellent choice for those who are cheerful and full of energy!

Wedding speeches and toasts can be found all over the internet. You just need to know which one is the best choice and from which you should get inspired to write your own toast. Just read a few of them until your inspiration comes. You will need to find a suitable introduction and the best one is either to go with a joke or simply introduce yourself. You may also go for a more formal tone if the event is a bit more elegant. You could use some poems or some quotes that you’ve come across online and that you think it is suitable for the occasion.

You should write the speech on a card so that it will be a lot easier for you to read from it. You might forget what you wanted to say and you might get a bit too nervous. But there is nothing to worry about this can happen due to the fact that you are excited and overwhelmed with so many people. Just apologize and tell everyone that you are a bit nervous. It would not look to red form your card but it seems that more and more people do this because they cannot seem to remember what they write.

You should make an effort and try to memorize it the best way you can. Also before the speech it would be a good idea to loosen up. Some like to clear their mind while others prefer to drink a glass of wine or champagne. Just stay focused and do not overdue it with the drinks. You should be very sober and balanced when performing this toast. Talk about some personal memories that you share with the groom or bride and maybe joke a little on the fact that the groom finally decided to tie the knot.

Alfresco wedding ceremonies & receptions are very trendy. But the natural themes are also in vogue today. And those who can’t afford to book their wedding for an elegant garden can at least use a botanical theme for the décor. The wedding can take place anywhere outdoors or inside, in a cheaper location.

You can obtain beautiful results even in a backyard. Outdoors weddings are based on a minimalist style and fewer details. It’s important to keep all things natural and light. Set a theme and look for the motifs that capture its essence. Use specific accents throughout the wedding and don’t stray from the general line.

Not all beach weddings take place on the sandy shore. Many brides and grooms like to plan the ceremony in a more elegant green place near the ocean.

We adore the romantic gazebo ceremony and the floral arrangements created for the décor. This is definitely one of our favorite beach venues for a wedding. This couple wanted a cheerful wedding with a light tonality. This is why the bride chose the white and pink theme for her bouquet.

The bridesmaids wore matching bouquets and sleek gowns in dark violet. We like the fact that the bride wanted to wear something elegant.

Nowadays, the modern couple is free to choose any theme and style.

No one can stop you from planning a glamorous ceremony on the beach. The décor and the outfits can be inspired by the luxury of the venue. This is the most efficient way to go to obtain a successful event. Nevertheless, seaside weddings are not utterly formal. They are at most ultra-formal, and the style classically modern.

Beach affairs are pretentious because they are very specific. This is why you have to use at least an element that reflects the flair of the ocean. We must confess we never thought that red and pink can look so beautiful together. We never paid too much credit to this theme and this is why now we are surprised to see that this style is so fashionable and successful.

Our designers are constantly looking for new ways of using and reusing the colors that are available out there. They also invent new tonalities that can’t be found in nature. Modern brides and those who are into the vintage style can adopt the crafty look and use fabric flowers and decorative items to incorporate a more special and rare theme.

Pink is one of the most pretentious colors and it is definitely not one of the most unanimously accepted for weddings, especially among grooms. Men are always skeptical about this color because it has been interpreted as a girlish color for a very long time.

This is why those who are not up to date with the new trends and tendencies in weddings and colors might consider pink inappropriate for their reception. Fortunately, this preconceive notion of image of pink can be easily dissolved by simply looking at the beautiful arrangements we’ve posted below on this page.

One can utilize it in many ways, for different reasons. It can play a principal role in your color scheme or it can only be used as an eye-catchy accent. Either way, using pink in a wedding can help you obtain a more remarkable and vibrant atmosphere at the party. If you still think that pink is too flashy for a wedding, mix it with a darker nuance. You will get a balanced palette that can suit both formal and ultra-formal affairs.

We can also see a few shades of light sleek violet used for the flower vases. We adore the fluffy peonies incorporated in the centerpieces. These settings are simple and chic and very feminine. When using pink the ideal is to keep things minimal and natural. Don’t exaggerate with the accessories because pink is already a strident color.
