Types of Wedding Attire: Essential Tips for Choosing the Ideal Look!

The main goal of a bride is: "hold a perfect wedding party". Every detail chosen by her, such as the wedding cake, the invitations and even the clothes of the guests need to be impeccable! After all, marriage is a set of elements that need to be in full harmony.

Although some believe that determining the type of guest costume is not very polite - no one knows how the financial conditions of each are going - others believe that there is nothing bad about it and that it is even better to ask for a style that is right for the marriage, because this way it is easier to hit the visual and not to err in excess, wearing too simple clothes, or very luxurious.

And that is why today we are going to deal with this controversial subject, but necessary. And thus, choose the costume that most matches the wedding party that you plan to have; and if you're a guest, do not worry! We've brought tips and inspirations for you to choose the perfect wedding look for each type of outfit.

How to determine suit in the invitation?

To determine the types of costumes you need to have the space, the decoration and the wedding dress already chosen. That's because these three elements are what will define the style of marriage. For example, if the bride is to marry in a luxurious space, with a princess dress full of embroidery, and a very traditional decorated wedding, it is interesting to determine a gala / black tie look for the wedding. If the party is outdoors, on a site or farm for example, the bride can already opt for a fine sports party, to leave the guests at ease from beginning to end of the event.

Fine sport suit

It is a cool style, with elegant but simple clothes. Anyone who opts for this style of costume is usually throwing a party outdoors, such as at the beach or in the country. All natural and simple.

Fine female sport costume

For the woman, tailleurs, shorter and printed dresses, as well as the basic black dress are made, and made of lighter fabrics, such as cotton and linen. Avoid glitzy and flamboyant dresses and prefer the most opaque and elegant fabrics. Oh, do not forget a good high heel!

Full outfit

It's the social attire style that most couples choose for the big day. If you are in doubt as to the style of clothing you will wear in a wedding, bet on the complete ride, as you get in the middle between fine sport and black tie - mega sophisticated. Dresses can range in size from the longest to the shortest. However, the fabric and the details of the guests' look are what make the difference.

Full female prom dress

The woman's dress has to be made of some more sophisticated fabric, like crepe, mousseline and silk. The sparkles need to be controlled, nothing to wear a dress all bright, choose models that have brilliance only in the bust, or only in the skirt. The best thing to do is bet on a more classic dress, accompanied by a shiny and beautiful clutch! Another tip is also betting on the sandal, as it leaves the look neutral.

Full Men's Walking Suit

Here is no escape, the male costume should be composed of suit and tie. However, if the wedding is by day, the guest can bet on different and cheerful color combinations, pulling for lighter shades. And in dark marriages, dark suits.

Wedding Planning Tips for The Bachelor Party

Posted on May 29, 2018 at 01:36 PM / Under Wedding Planning

With all the tensions associated with marriage planning, there is a possibility to relax with friends. Planning a fun bachelor party will help you escape all the important decisions that need to be made for the wedding itself. Here are some tips to put together a bachelor party.

Tip 1 - Planning

It is customary for the bridesmaids to plan the party. The maid of honor must have the first choice in planning, but if she has already done the bridal shower, others may want to help plan and cost. If their hands are full of wedding details, a good friend wants to take over with their hands.

Tip 2 - Bride style

Keep the personal preferences of the bride in mind when planning. If she would be embarrassed easily by a night of more risky nature, opt for a day at the spa. Plan a whole day with high tea, a trip to the salon and drinks and dinner. Remember that caring for the bride is the first priority. If heavy drinking is going to take place, think about having the weekend before the wedding instead of the night before.

Tip 3 - Invites

Ask the bride whom she would like to invite. Sometimes they may not want their mother and mother-in-law to join, so it's good to ask her for the list of guests. Make sure all ladies are informed of the date in advance. Everyone has busy schedules and it is best to give everyone the opportunity to share their schedules.

Be specific. Let the guests know the times and the itinerary throughout the day. Some may want to meet at one of the locations, but not all of them. You can ask for donations to do something extra special for the bride, such as renting a limo for the day. Enter a phone number to ask questions. Let guests know how much they can expect to spend for the day.

Tip 4 - Reservations

If you are planning the event at a popular location, you must call and book in advance. If you cannot enter because a place is full, it can become a downer all day long. Depending on the size of the group, it may be useful to rent a VIP stand in a club.

Tip 5 - Personalize the experience

This is supposed to be a celebration of the last days as a single woman, so present your bride with some memories of that time.

Collect photos and present them with a scrapbook of all the memories.

Leave a page blank at the end for wedding day photos of all ladies during her wedding.

Present her with special wedding day lingerie or other nice gifts to send her in her 'married way'.

Also personalize the experience for the guests. Buy favors that all ladies can wear during the night to indicate that they are at your party. Tiaras and sashes are fun for the guests to wear. Make a goody bag full of survival items for the bachelor party, such as aspirin, an ice bag and lipstick.

After two world trips and traveling through more than sixty countries, I have now collected quite a few travel tips. Some are very practical, others are more general in nature. I thought it would be fun to share my ten ultimate travel tips and I hope you have something to do with it!

1. Ensure sufficient budget

How much 'sufficient' is depends entirely on your travel style and your wishes, but in any case: make sure you have enough money to occasionally do a cool activity, once more luxurious to sleep or to have a cocktail somewhere. You always need more money than you think. Making choices is fine, but it would be a shame if you really want to do something, but do not have any money for it. Who knows when you get the chance to go back.

2. Travel as you want

Everyone has their own way of traveling. I am a planner myself and sometimes I find that a shame. But for me plans are great: I know exactly what I want to see, I always have certain hotels on the eye where I want to sleep and I want to be sure that I can do whatever I want. That does not mean that I always book everything in advance, but I often find it relaxed. But for you it can work much better to travel without a plan. Therefore, travel especially well as you want, because there is no right or wrong way.

3. Provide backups

Make sure you have a backup of your important documents, photos and film material and for your money. Mail yourself a copy of your passport and important (account) numbers and make sure you have a paper copy in your backpack. Backing up your photos is also important: put everything on your laptop, make a copy to a separate hard drive and keep it in a different location than your laptop. Lastly, think carefully about your money matters. Hide some cash in your backpack and take a credit card alongside a debit card. On a world tour we even had a second debit card, for when the first one would not work.

4. Look beyond your travel guide

I will not travel without Lonely Planet, but there is more than just travel guides. For example, read travel and lifestyle blogs for the best personal tips. Extra fun if the blogger himself lives at your travel destination, because then you know for sure that you have the best local tips. Sometimes it is also nice to completely forget the guides and tips and just go running. Especially recommended in an atmospheric city such as Stone Town or Fes, where the street scene itself is already a highlight in itself.

5. Dare to step out of your comfort zone

Traveling is the chance to do things that you do not dare but would like to do. You can think of diving or parachuting, but also camping on an uninhabited island, asking locals if you can take a picture of them, staying in a homestay or street food. Let go of your fears and step out of that comfort zone!
