Tips When Searching For Personalized Wedding Gift Cards

Posted on Posted in gift, shopping, wedding

You can admit it, you don’t want to be featured in one of those “worst wedding gift ever” type of stories. So you’re shopping fiercely trying to find something for a wedding present for the happy couple, that isn’t too toaster-like and isn’t something so exotic that they’ll never use it, like his and hers electric dog brushes.

Instead, you can let the couple pick out what they would like by getting them a personalized wedding gift card. It’s the perfect way to give a present that they will like, because the newlyweds can choose what they want based on the amount you put on the gift card.

If you’re the bride or groom, then you will want your special day to be as unique and special as your love for one another. One way to do this is to make sure that your marriage favors are specially made for your ceremony. Engraved flasks for your groomsmen, engraved silver items or jewelry are all wonderful ways to show your appreciation to your marriage party.

Another way to ensure your attendants feel special is to include a personalized gift card for each of them. You can usually do this at the store where you set up your wedding gift registry.

Some stores will even take the personalization of the gift cards further and create a card that has the names of the couple, the date of the marriage and even a computer generated rendering of the couple on the front. This isn’t a feature that is widely available, but its use is becoming more commonplace as more brides and grooms opt for the “little something extra” in putting together their wedding gifts.

A creative way to bring your wedding to a whole new level is by giving them to all of your guests, and not just your marriage party attendants. A small gift card balance on a giftcard will make a wonderful present for all of your guests and can make an incredible statement of your thanks for being a part of your special day, when given during your reception.

A personalized wedding gift card makes a great present that is thoughtful and flexible, as it allows the couple to get exactly what they want and no returns will be necessary. This way you can avoid buying a wedding gift that will end up in the back of a closet or one that is sold at an upcoming yard sale. No stress, no fuss! The couple will no doubt be delighted to go shopping together for something they truly need.…

Pink Bridesmaid Dresses: How to Choose the Right Color

Posted on Posted in wedding

There is such an array of beautiful colors today when choosing bridesmaid dresses. With so many choices, it can sometimes be a little overwhelming when it comes time to pick the perfect color for your bridesmaids. If your bridal party is small, then the choices may not be as daunting, but the larger the party, the larger your choice becomes and the more difficult it becomes to pick a color that looks good on everyone. For instance, if pink is your theme, pink bridesmaid dresses may not be suitable for everyone so a little tweak here and there may be needed to keep everyone happy and looking their best.

The following are some great tips for choosing a color that both compliments your bridesmaids and their individuality and is the perfect match for the theme of your wedding.

Time of Year and Time of Day This is one the most important driving factors of your choice. A summertime light and breezy color does not always work in the fall and vice versa. The time of day also is a deciding factor. Be cognizant of the bridemaids shape, sizes and coloring. For instance, solid pink bridesmaid dresses will not always work on certain skin tones.

Opting for different shades within the same color family or mixing and matching two contrasting colors is a great way to change it up a bit and works with any season. Also, adding embellishments of silver to pink or conversely pink to silver will work well on different bridesmaids. It is like an all in one fix where one color may not do the trick but the other makes up for the shortcomings and is a perfect solution.

Type of Affair Is your wedding going to be casual, formal or a beach destination wedding? Lighter pastel shades work well for casual weddings where the darker, richer hues such as black or deep hunter green work with more formal affairs.

If you are going casual but it is a nighttime affair, then using contrasting colors of both light and dark will work well for any affair. Layering chocolate-brown with pink is a great way to add richness yet keeping it lighter with pink shading.

If it is a destination wedding, then let your imagination run wild. Most colors work well, but like the destination, if it is tropical then think tropical and choose colors that fit into that theme. Nighttime or daytime, when it is a destination or tropical wedding, the location drives the choices.

The final word on bridesmaid dresses. Choose a color that you both like and works with your theme. If you do not like it, it does not matter how good it looks on your bridesmaids and what time of year or day it is, you will never be happy.

After all, it is your day. Hopefully, this will be the most memorable and wonderful day of your life. You need to be happy and satisfied with the choices you make. It is …

A Do It Yourself Wedding in New York City For $10,000 Or Less, Is It Possible?

Posted on Posted in gift, wedding, women

A do-it-yourself (DIY) wedding in New York City sounds like an oxymoron, but it can be done. There are various ways of complying with that statement above and all for under $10,000. Well, under $10,000. You can still have quite an extravagant wedding, even an over the top wedding for under $10,000 AND in New York. Let me show you how it can be done, including your honeymoon. Now I know you’re thinking that is an impossibility. My husband and I did it and so can you.

It mostly depends on just what it is you want your fantasy day to say and whether or not one thing is the most important item or if you would prefer to have featured several things. For me I wanted the colors of our wedding to be featured, my dress and the water feature for my husband at the reception. At another time I will tell you about my excursions to and from the various locations to secure, just what I wanted for my wedding. Right now, I will give you the nitty-gritty about what I reaped from my excursions.

What if you only wanted one thing to be the major featured item? Of course, it does not have to be just one thing, it can be several, but just so you don’t go crazy, I suggest you choose one to two items rather than a whole slew, but if you want more than that, don’t do any more than five. Most brides start off believing they can do it all and realize within eight to six months of the wedding that they can not. A friend’s help comes in quite handily, after all your really close friends will have asked you all along what they can do to help. At about ten to eight months out from the wedding is the best time to take them up on their offers. I did. More about me later, though. I have a friend who did a wedding with a potluck reception at a very famous church here in Manhattan and even though it was phenomenally delicious, to my idea that was not even the featured item in her wedding. I am getting ahead of myself though.

Her wedding had a committee of three women -the project managers- to help her stay within her budget which was WAY under $10,000. I believe she and her new husband paid no more than $6000 for their entire wedding, which included the reception space in that very same famous church. They did not pay for catering which can be quite pricey when it comes to weddings. In fact, the wedding couple paid nothing for the food at the reception, so plus the cost of the space, If they’d paid for catering it would have run close to the $6000 for their 150 guests. By having a potluck, she paid nothing other than the cost of the hall. The Riverside Church Chapel for me cost $800 (In a previous …

Champagne Gift Baskets – A Taste of the Bubbly

Posted on Posted in gift, wedding

If you are sending a gift basket for a significant celebration of some sort then it needs to be a champagne gift basket. Nothing is more perfect for a celebration, whether it is a wedding, anniversary, retirement or birthday celebration.

Do you know who Dom Perignon is and why his name is associated with superb champagne? I'll tell you in a little bit.

We all love champagne because of its effervescent bubbles. The bubbles are created in spite of the wine is fermented twice. Once before it is bottled, just like regular wine, and then once in the bottle. A little yeast and some sugar are added to cause the carbonation and the bubbles. Tall, narrow champagne flutes are designed to enhance the bubbling and the flavor.

Technically in order to be called champagne the wine needs to come from the Champagne area in France. Similar bubbling wines from other places are called sparkling wine. Here in the United States, Oregon, Washington and the Napa valley produce distinct sparkling wines.

A basket that has champagne in it describes to be accompanied by top quality gourmet foods, cheeses, and even chocolate.

You may want to think of a "toast" to include in the basket. Here is one for free:

"When wine enlivens the heart, may friendship surround the table"

And by the way, Dom Perignon was a French monk who made several advances in the producing of champagne. Including the wire collar that is used to keep the cork in the bottle. And that is why the person who receives your gift of champagne will get to pop the cork and enjoy all the bubbles. …

Basic Tips for Men's Suits: Dressing for a Winter Wedding

Posted on Posted in clothing, wedding

Winter is drawing near, and it will not be long until holiday inspired cards and party invitations start making their way to your mailbox. Along with these annual holiday cards, you may find yourself invited to at least one winter wedding. Whether this is your first winter wedding or you happened to be a seasoned pro at dressing for formal events, you'll still glean a few tips from the following advice on men's suits.

Men's Suits for a Semi-Formal Wedding

The first step to wearing appropriately for any wedding is to determine whether the event is formal or semi-formal.

A semi-formal wedding invitation is not as difficult as you may think. The tuxedo is obviously rule out, so what men's suits are best?

With this type of affair, there are several options you will have for your wardrobe.

  • Men's business suits – Depending on your current wardrobe, you may not need to shop for the upcoming event. Do you own a black, tailored power suit? Most men do. Although you generally pull this out for business meetings or when giving a presentation, a black suit is perfect for a winter wedding.
  • Jacket – If you are wondering whether a blazer, tweed jacket, or sports jacket are appropriate for a winter wedding, the general answer is no. Stick to dark colored men's suits. You would not want to show up feeling underdressed. Semi-formal means black tie or tux are not required. Be respectful of the occasion by looking your best.
  • Dress shirt – A wedding is generally not the time to try out that brightly colored shirt or a new style trend. Even at semi-formal occasions, you'll feel confident when you stick to a timeless, classic look. A white button cuff dress shirt and a silk tie with pocket square are perfect.

Dressing for the Formal Wedding

A formal wedding is going to require a little more preparation and style. At a formal wedding, everyone is dressed to the nines. With a little help, you can be too. Here are a few of the choices you may have for a formal celebration.

  • Tuxedo – The ultimate formal attire for men has to be the tuxedo. This piece of clothing exhibits class and sophistication. Choose a tux in a wool blend for winter weddings; this type of fabric will keep you warm despite the cool weather. Many tuxedos also come with a Teflon coating, to resist stains and keep you looking sharp through the entire event.
  • Men's Wedding Suits – Wedding suits are generally different than everyday suits. For winter weddings, it is best to choose suits in darker colors, such as black, dark gray or navy blue. Wool is ideal for the season.

To complete your formal look, add a bow tie or a silk tie, along with a white dress shirt.

A wedding is a time for celebration. Do not feel left out or awkward by selecting the wrong type of men's suits. Stick to classic looks, dark colors, and …
