While your wedding ceremony is both special and crucial (it’s when you’ll actually get married!), the reception is probably what you and your guests are most looking forward to—who doesn’t want to eat, drink and dance? The best celebrations incorporate personal, fun and unique touches to keep guests smiling and talking about it long after the last dance. Get inpsired by our favorite reception ideas, from simple planning tricks to wow-worthy entertainment below.

 Arrange Seating Thoughtfully

It sounds obvious, but don’t discount the importance of a solid seating arrangement. Place guests with people they’ll know and get along with.

Similar to your wedding day at Vogue Ballroom, excellent weather condition and ideal sightseeing opportunities go together during a location’s high season– which likewise means high space rates and more crowds (so reserve early!).

Unique and Unusual Bucks Night Ideas for Around Melbourne

So You’re Organising A Bucks Party In Melbourne?
You’re looking for fun, exciting and memorable bucks party ideas and venues that will have the boys AMAZED by your planning skills.

We’re all familiar with the stock-standard lad’s night out bucks party that involves drinking plenty of beer and spending the night in a dark (and sometimes questionable) bar. If that vibe doesn’t appeal to you and you’d prefer something not as tacky, there are so many more ideas out there. Melbourne has plenty of things to do when it comes to your bucks party, so here are a few classier ideas.

The bachelor party started as a gentlemen’s celebration: a civilized night of drawing-room drinking, smoking, and toasting to the bride’s health.

Boy, have things altered.

While most of today’s bachelor parties have dumped the civilized bit in favor of a raunchy night on the town, the list of attendees has stayed the very same. […]

How to Keep the Guest List Small at Your Wedding

Planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting times in your life, but when it comes to creating the guest list, things can sometimes get a bit daunting and awkward. No one wants to have to cull friends or family off the guests list, and there’s always the lingering worry that they may bring it up and question as to why they weren’t invited. Here, we’ve created an etiquette guide to trimming that guest list with minimal stress.

Divide Guests into Tiers and Go from There

One effective and systematic way to cut down the guest list is to divide guests into tiers of A, B, C and D. If you’re having purely a closest friends and family affair. If you’re having something a little bit bigger, invite B as well, and so on and so forth. When you’re deciding who to include in you’re A list, the general rule […]

How to Write your Own Wedding Vows

Read These Tips Before Writing Your Own Wedding Vows
Start by checking out conventional, by-the-book vows from your very own religious beliefs if you practice a certain faith, and others also, to see exactly what strikes home with you. Integrate these samples into the initial words you write or utilize them as a jumping-off point. As soon as you’ve found a few you enjoy, consider what it has to do with the style that draws you to those swears in particular.

Agree on format and tone with your fiancé.
Choose how you want your swears to come across. Do you imagine them as amusing? Poetic and romantic? Review the logistics too. Will you write them independently or together? Will they be various or will you make the same promises to each other as you would with traditional vows? Some couples do a little of each. Finally, will you share them with each other […]

The Best Wedding Films of All Time

We all remember those stand-out movie weddings, for whatever reason. Perhaps they were especially humorous, disastrous, romantic or just a classic tear-jerker. Wedding movies are something that Hollywood does well, and when it comes to couples saying “I do” in movies, there are a few that spring to mind.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

This iconic wedding romantic comedy film speaks to a lot of people in mixed-background couples, but is also generally just a humorous commentary on when two very different families are brought together in a marriage. Involving plenty of cringe-worthy, laugh-out-loud and touching moments.

Four Weddings and a Funeral

The 90s were the time for great wedding films, and the Brits do them the best. This movie falls under both categories, AND it has Hugh Grant in it. The plot revolves around a charming Englishman who is unlucky in love, and his encounters with a beautiful American woman at his friend’s […]

Wedding Flowers by Season

We all know that fruit and vegetables go in and out of season, making them cheaper or more expensive, but did you know that flowers also have seasons? It makes sense, but just because they’re available in florists it doesn’t mean they are easily or locally available. If they aren’t in season, that means that they are sourced from elsewhere, and that can mean that flowers are damaged from long-distance travel. Here we’ve created a guide to which flowers to choose for which season by month, so you can get the best quality in-season flowers for your budget.

SUMMER

December, January, February

Hydrangeas can add that something blue to a beautiful bouquet, while the pure white of water lilies will add a fresh and elegant look to any wedding dress. For something different go for the vibrant red poppy, which will add a stunning visual contrast to a white wedding dress. 

AUTUMN

March, April, May

From bouffant gowns made from miles of fabric to elegantly sheer dresses and everything in between, they’ve come in all shapes, cuts, colours and sizes over the years. Here we have a look at just a few of the most famous wedding dresses throughout history.

Princess Diana

It consisted of a full skirt, puffy long sleeves and a ruffled neckline complete with bow. The 25-foot train was the longest in the history of royal weddings. Princess Diana also wore a simple, flowing veil on her wedding day.

Wedding Accessories for Her

As well as the traditional “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”, there are plenty more ways to add accessories and personal touches to your bridal ensemble.

An embroidered handkerchief

Have a friend embroider a dainty handkerchief with a supportive or funny message for you to be surprised by on the day. Having a handkerchief on hand is also a great idea, for if you get teary during those special vows! Plus, it can be a wonderful keepsake from the day.

Garter

Here’s a fun one! If you’re planning on doing a garter toss, you can make your own garter with your bridesmaids before the wedding. Make two; one to keep as a memory of the day and one to do the toss. 

A dreamy hair wreath

This is another one that can made with the bridesmaids before the wedding, and used as chic accessories for the day. Each bridesmaid can make her own wreath […]
