    The Top 10 Biggest Wedding Guest Complaints

    16 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

    Every couple wants their wedding to be an event to remember for their guests, but there are times when your day can be memorable for all the wrong reasons. Gross food? Too loud music? Getting lost on the way from the ceremony to the reception? While it’s pretty much impossible to make everyone happy (some people just love to gripe), you can easily avoid some of the most common complaint causers by following the no-fail advice from our panel of wedding experts. This will ensure your wedding is a good time for (almost) all.

    No AC

    No AC in the summer. While you might love the idea of getting hitched in that old church that doesn’t have air conditioning or an outdoor garden with no shade, sitting in the sweltering heat will only make your guests sweaty and miserable. Instead, try to find a compromise that will give you what you want without sacrificing your guests’ comfort, such as having the ceremony in a cool spot and taking photos in the other locations.

    No-AC.jpg

    Transportation

    The venues are too far apart. When your ceremony and reception are being held in two separate locations, be sure you don’t make them too far away. “Anything more than a 30 minute drive is too far for guests to travel–especially if most guests are traveling from out of town to attend the wedding anyway,” says Taryn Blake. “If you can’t find a space that is all-inclusive, try to find two venues within relatively short distance from one another.” If having venues that are far apart is simply unavoidable, provide transportation for guests to get from one place to the other and then back to their cars.

    Transportation.jpg

    Taking Pics

    There’s too much time between events. After the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom and wedding party usually go to a separate location to take photos. The guests should have a designated place to go with food and beverages and entertainment while waiting for the bride and groom to join the reception. “This is the reason behind a cocktail hour, so the guests are fed and entertained while wedding party photos are being taken,” says Kristin Watkins. “Any longer than an hour is too long and your guests will start to get antsy.”

    Taking-Pics.jpg

    Music

    The music is too loud. “For whatever reason bands and DJ’s feel the louder they play the more guests enjoy the party–not true in my opinion,” says wedding planner Shawn A. Rabideau. “The music should be loud enough that guests can dance and have a good time. But also low enough that conversations can be had. Talk with your band or DJ and tell them on a scale of one to ten (ten being the loudest) you want music at a five or six. When the older guests start to leave later in the evening then you can go to a seven or eight. But anything higher is just way too much and unnecessary.”

    Music.jpg

    Cash Bar

    There’s no open bar. We know, it can be expensive to offer an open bar, but it’s what guests expect (and want). Save money by serving beer and wine, and then choose two cocktails that the bride and groom love to share with their guests, recommends Tristan Tilma, CEO/Founder of Stagsource. “This will be far cheaper than having an open bar, and give you a chance to share a little more about yourselves with your guests. And chances are not everyone is going to be a huge fan of the two cocktails you choose and thus you’ll save on alcohol!”

    Cash-Bar.jpg

    Reception Table

    Having to sit at the “wrong” table. A young couple sitting at the senior table; exes having to endure having dinner with one another–and their new partners; your parents’ friends seated right near the DJ speakers. These are just a few seating faux pas that annoy guests and cause stress for couples. Tilma recommends using allseated.com to arrange where your guests are going to sit to make sure it becomes a perfect night.

    Reception-Table.jpg

    Wedding Food

    Bad Food (or not enough).You expect the food you will receive as a guest, and the food ordered by the family, would be tasty. But what happens when the food is unsalted and the fish and meat are cooked to bricks? “You get frustrated and hungry guests, as well as unhappy parents of the bride/groom,” says Preeti Moberg. She suggests having a family member taste test the food before it goes out to the tables. You also need to make sure your venue and caterer has an accurate head count before the wedding day so there is enough food ordered and prepared for the event. The last thing you need is for guests to leave your reception still hungry and looking to make a fast food run on the way home.

    Wedding-Food.jpg

    Menu

    Ignoring special requests or needs. This includes little things like making accommodations for guests with disabilities, accounting for children in the planning, providing ample numbers of highchairs, proper meal options (vegan options or kids’ meals). “More often than not, these are the “little” details that slip through the cracks when planning and are often overlooked, leaving guests feeling marginalized,” says Rob Farrow.

    Kids

    Kids are running the show. Even if kids are included on the guest list, it’s important to remember this is an adult party, not a kids birthday, says Blake. “I often overhear guests saying kids are taking over the dance floor–and many times, I see their parents doing more, well, parenting, than actually enjoying the night!”

    Kids.jpg

    Thank You Notes

    Not getting a thank you note. A guest could attend your wedding and think that it was the most beautiful event they have ever attended. However, if weeks or months go by and they don’t see a note from you recognizing their attendance, or worse yet their gift, they could end up with a sour taste in their mouth, says Caroline Kennedy. “Thank you notes are a personal and simple way to show guests that you appreciate their presence.”

    How To Match Your Wedding Hairstyle To Your Wedding Gown

    16 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

    Finding the perfect Wedding Dress is only the first step in putting together your look for the big day. You’ll also need accessories, makeup—and to figure out what to do with your hair. And certain gowns will look best with certain hair styles, says Marlene Montanez of Latest-Hairstyles. Here are some of their ideas for pairing your wedding day hair with your dress.

    weddinf-hair.jpg

    Backless Dress. Backless Wedding Dresses are on trend right now, and whether it’s completely open in the back, partially so or just the illusion of an open back with lace detailing, you’ll likely want to show that part of the dress off. Consider an updo for your wedding day hairstyle to give your back the spotlight. If you aren’t feeling an updo, but still want something that’s flattering, you can also try a longer hairstyle where your hair is pulled and styled to the front and side. Think an ultra-glamorous low side pony.

    California-Film-Photography-by-Erich-McVey-19.jpg

    Strapless/Sweetheart Dress. Strapless and sweetheart-neck dresses are still some of the most popular Wedding Dress styles. The good news is, they not only flatter just about every figure, they work with just about any hairstyle, too! If you are having a church ceremony or concerned about showing too much skin, consider wearing your hair down–even in a sleek, straight style or long, loose curls, instead of a formal updo.

    The Ultra Glam Gown. A super dramatic dress with lots of embellishments needs a more sophisticated style. Whether you choose to embrace the glamour with a sleek updo or play the contrast game by going with a more loose, natural look, almost anything goes. But you’ll want to stay away from trendy dos like braids.

    formal.jpg

    Boho or Beach Dresses. If you are having a beach wedding or a more casual affair, embrace the afternoon vibe with a non-fussy look. Long hair styled in beachy waves or even loose braids pulled back are perfect for beach weddings. And brides with long or short hair can experiment with some pretty bridal hair accessories, like flowers, headbands and even the new feather hair pieces.

    boho.jpg

    The Understated Dress. If your dress is simple, sophisticated and elegant, you can play up the drama with your hair. For down hairstyles, that means lots of volume and for updos, that means pretty bridal hair accessories and glamorous styles that incorporate lots of curls.

    drama.jpg

    One-Shoulder Gown. A one-shoulder gown is great for showing off fabulous arms and a little skin, so don’t want your hair covering that up. A half-up, half-down wedding hairstyle is a great way to balance off this asymmetrical look. If your wedding is a bit on the formal side, an updo works really well with this look, too.

    The 10 Biggest Things All Brides Forget

    16 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

    With all the wedding planning you’re doing right now, it’s hard to imagine there’s any detail you haven’t thought of – but trust us, there are certain to-dos that somehow never make it to the top of list. Here are 10 essentials to keep front of mind:

    1) Making post-wedding plans

    We’re not talking about the honeymoon here (who would forget to plan that?). We mean you need to decide what you’re doing immediately after your wedding. If you don’t want the party to end with the last dance, you should pick a late-night spot in or near one of the guest hotels. If privacy isn’t all that important, book your wedding night room in the same hotel as your guests. If you just want to get to bed, we strongly suggest you book a room elsewhere.

    2) Bringing your overnight bag

    If you’re allowed to check into your hotel room early — and you don’t personally need to be there to officially check in — pick someone to drop your overnight bag at your hotel before your ceremony starts. A guest who’s staying at the same place will more than likely be happy to do this for you, since they’re going to have to check in anyway! If your things can’t arrive sooner than you, ask a Bridesmaidto be responsible for bringing your bag to the wedding and finding a safe spot for it in the bridal suite. Even easier, if you’ll have the same car or limo for the entire day and night, opt to keep your stuff in the boot.

    3) Picking someone to take your things home after the reception

    Your gifts, mementos (think toasting flutes, cake topper, unity candle and guest book) and any leftover food, booze or cake need a trusty escort to get them home. Choose a person and let them know about their responsibility. And you may want to donate your centrepieces. Nursing homes typically accept flowers, but call at least a few days before the wedding to find out when someone can drop off the arrangements. If you’re changing out of your gown before you head to your hotel room, you’ll need a person to take it home, too— even if you have no plans to get it professionally preserved, you don’t want to leave it behind! Make sure there’s a hanger and a garment bag on hand (the one your dress came with will do!) so your gown stays in tip-top shape.

    4) Deciding where everything goes

    Besides planning where all of your guests sit, you need to figure out where you’ll put programs, escort and place cards, menus (if you’re having them) and bomboniere. Once you’ve decided who’s going to set these out — your wedding coordinator, Bridesmaids and banquet managers are all good choices — give them clear instructions on where they should go (one bomboniere on every other plate at tables, for instance, if you want couples to share the takeaways, or all of them in two baskets by the exits if you want guests to pick them up on the way out). Also, if your venue’s staff will be setting out these items, find out when you can drop everything off — some venues want everything a couple of days before your wedding; others won’t take anything until the actual day.

    5) Decorating the other areas

    Of course, no guest will walk out of your wedding if the bathrooms and cocktail bar are left bare. But with all the energy that’s put into dressing up the reception and ceremony spaces, you might want to put in the small extra effort to give these spots the décor they deserve. A few candles will work.

    6) Buying gifts for the wedding party

    When gifts are constantly coming to your door, it’s hard to remember that you also need to dole some out! So who makes it on the gift list? Everyone who plays a role in your day — yes, your parents and future in-laws, too. You don’t need to make a big presentation.

    7) Choosing how to gather the gifts

    If you’re not having a wishing well, there are three times when guests are likely to thrust gifts at you: while they’re in the receiving line, during your table visits and when they leave for the night. Designate a person — one of your Bridesmaids, your mum or your groom’s mum — to collect envelopes, and have them by your side with a large but inconspicuous bag when you’re saying hello and goodbye to your guests. That person should also keep an eye out for guests who seem a little lost at the reception — they may be trying to figure out where they should put their gift! If you decide instead to have a wishing well, box or other stationary receptacle, add a cute sign and tell a few people to subtly spread the word around.

    8) Figuring out your day-after plans

    If you’re leaving for your honeymoon straight from your hotel, make advance arrangements for a car service to take you from the hotel to the airport, and be sure you bring any luggage you want with you on your trip (and a passport if you need it). If you’re not going on your honeymoon right away, then you need to know where you’re going the morning after your wedding (home, or your parents’ house?) and how you’re going to get there. Park your car at the hotel before your wedding if you’re allowed, or ask a friend to come pick you up and bring you where you want to go the next day. Don’t schedule your ride too early — you’ll probably be exhausted.

    9) Bringing the legal documents

    Signing your marriage certificate after the wedding ceremony is one of the most important aspects of your day; after all, it officialises the reason you threw a wedding in the first place! After all the hours of planning, you’re probably more focused on the party afterwards than the legal side of your nuptials, but without the paperwork, all the stress and money spent will be for nothing. Your celebrant should hopefully keep you on top of all the legal requirements, such as lodging your Notice of Intended Marriage at least one month prior to your wedding day, and bringing along three marriage certificates for you to sign on the day. Also, there is a ‘Declaration of No Legal Impediment to Marriage’ which you will need to sign close to, and prior to the marriage taking place. Check with them a few days before the wedding so you can have peace of mind.

    10) Making and confirming itineraries

    Check in with every single supplier, from the limo driver to the linen rental company, one week before your wedding. Many of them will beat you to it, so be ready to go over times and locations whenever you get a call. Send out agendas to your Bridesmaids and groomsmen, too — how else will they know what time you’re taking photos? If someone in the bridal party is notorious for being late, start their schedule half an hour early just in case.

    10 Things Brides Forget To Do After Their Wedding Ceremony

    15 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

    Use the Bathroom

    Use the bathroom. You’re going to be taking photos, greeting guests and preparing for your first dance as husband and wife, so it might be hard to find a lot of time to visit the restroom during the reception. Before you get back in that limo, be sure to take a bathroom break–and don’t forget to take a few Bridesmaids with you to help maneuver the dress while you pee.

    Retouch Makeup

    Retouch your makeup. You kissed your groom and maybe even shed a tear or two swapping your vows, so you’re definitely in need of a little retouching before moving on. Bring along a small purse that you can keep in the car (or have a friend or family member hold on it) that has everything you need–oil blotting papers, concealer, lip gloss, etc.–to make sure you look picture perfect all day.

    Alone Time

    Spend alone time with groom. You’re finally husband and wife, and there’s nothing rude about sneaking away for a few minutes for some alone time. It will give him time to gush over how gorgeous you look and for the both of you to reflect on the ceremony. In fact, in Jewish tradition, couples spend alone time in another room to signify their new status as husband and wife.

    Alone-Time.jpg

    Eat Something

    Eat something! One big bridal complaint: Many don’t get to sample the delicious food at their own wedding! You spent so much time agonizing over the menu, you deserve to enjoy it along with your guests. And since you’ll likely be drinking during the party, it’s best to do so on a full stomach anyway.

    Comfortable Shoes

    Slip into comfortable shoes. If you plan to take outdoor photos, you don’t want your heels sinking into the grass. Or at the very least, you’ll want to be able to dance during the reception. (Despite what Carrie Bradshaw might say, your feet will hurt once you spend a few hours in heels). Be sure to bring a pair of flats so you never have to go barefoot during the event (unless you’re getting hitched on the beach!).

    Take Off Your Veil

    Take off your veil. If you don’t want to wear it all night or for the first dance, it’s probably easiest to take it off right after the ceremony since you’ll have to be super careful not to ruin your ‘do during the process. This is a task you maid of honor or mom can help you with.

    Engagement ring

    Put your engagement ring back on.During the ceremony, you’ll want to leave your ring finger on your left hand free so your groom can slip on your wedding band. You can simply move your engagement ring to your right hand or have someone hold it for you until after your vows, when you can slip it back on for the reception. Remember: The band is usually worn closest to your heart on your left hand.

    Engagement-ring.jpg

    Check Out Your Ceremony Space

    Check out your ceremony space. Another thing a bride forgets is to really see the ceremony space, says Mystique Latese, founder of Coordinator for a Day. “Often she is brought into the church or the ceremony location as part of a covert operation in order to keep her out of sight. The only moment she experiences the space is when she walks down the aisle.” Take the time to see the flowers and the décor, see the altar where you stood and the space

    Check-Out-Your-Ceremony-Space.jpg

    Thank Wedding Party

    Thank your parents and bridal party. It’s a great time to also have a private moment where you express you gratitude for all they have done for you and your groom on this special day. It’s also an opportunity for these close friends and family members to have the bride and groom all to themselves for a final moment before they have to share you with the rest of the guests. “The next phase of the wedding day is a flurry of food and fun and after the ceremony is a perfect time for private moments such as these,” says Latese.

    Collect Sentimental Items

    Collect ceremony items. Don’t leave behind anything of value–sentimental or otherwise–at the ceremony space. Extra programs, the unity candle, the Ketubah, or family photos that might have been on the altar are things that can easily be forgotten during the excitement that occurs after your vows. Assign a friend or family member to gather everything and hold onto it for you until you get back from the honeymoon.

    37 Blush Bridesmaid Dresses

    11 Jul 2016 Posted by trubridal in Bridesmaids Dresses

    There’s a reason this light-pink hue is a bridal style favorite.

    It’s no wonder blush is such a popular wedding color: It’s romantic and demure. Plus, it’s perfect for spring and summer nuptials. Light pink also happens to flatter nearly every skin tone, making it the perfect shade for Bridesmaid dresses.

    It not only works for a variety of shapes and shades, but it also can act as a neutral. In other words: You’ll have no problem fitting a blush bridal party into your color scheme or theme. And this is one hue that looks good on all fabrics and silhouettes.

    Since it’s so widely popular, it’s easy to find the color across a variety of retailers and designers. Which means for you and your ‘maids, splurging isn’t a necessity. Even better, if you’re willing, you can let your girls pick a silhouette that suits their body type and style, without fear that the shade they choose will be off. After all, most light pink dresses go together beautifully, whether or not they fall in the exact same spot of the rosy spectrum.

    You can even fit a blush Bridesmaid dress into most seasons. While it’s more popular for spring and summer weddings, you can have your girls wear it in any time of year, with slate grey and gilded accents grounding it in the cooler months.
