The best relationships and love stories are after all built on a foundation of mutual interests and likes. For these two working out and working as personal trainers at the gym was the first step towards a happy marriage.

Merry Me - Weddings and Events - 7 New Wedding Rules

7 New Wedding Rules

07

Something blue, something old, something new and something borrowed… while traditions would always prevail in a wedding gone are the days of the cookie cutter wedding. Nowadays we are seeing brides and grooms celebrating their own way and we love how unique each event turns out!

Merry Me - Weddings and Events - 7 New Wedding Rules
RULE 01: A White Gown is A Must!

New Rule: You don’t have to wear white. While the timeless white gown can never go out of style we are seeing more brides walking down the aisle in different hues. Gold, pinks and even red!

As long as you feel fabulous in your outfit, it can be any colour or style. Warning: It may shock older guests as wearing white is associated “purity.” You can opt for a white gown that has a hint of colour a black sash in your gown or a red belt. Traditional but with a twist!

RULE 02: Invite dad’s business associate, mom’s best friend and her family etc. that you end up not recognizing many of the faces at your fete.

New Rule: Make the day about the people who matter to you or the true VIP’s in your life. Couples want to celebrate with people they care about, those who will still be in their lives for years to come. Don’t feel obligated to invite all of your folk’s special friends as this is your big day!

RULE 03: The first time you see your groom on your wedding day should be at your ceremony.

New Rule: First look! There’s no doubt that one of the most emotional wedding day moments is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. While some traditional couples prefer to save the big reveal for the moment the bride comes walking down the aisle, others decide to do a “First Look” — taking a private moment to see each other before the ceremony.

 

As a wedding coordinator I personally recommend the First Look. A lot will happen on your wedding day; you mingle and greet guests, talk to friends whom you haven’t seen for a long time, dance, cut the cake, etc.

It’s always nice to experience a familiar venue in a new way. The Glass Garden’s magnificent Diamond Hall was once again a witness to a newlyweds first celebration of their love as man and wife. Ian and Vie had a delightfully colorful wedding at Christ the King Church captured by CamZar Photography and Zoombox Wedding Videos. Their wedding was infused with pastel colors of yellow, peach pink and plum. Vie was a sight to behold in an elegantly designed dress by Edward Teng; its intricate details brought out her best features.

Guests enjoyed a photo booth by Camera Craze, games with the lovely host Jan May and cocktails after the ceremony while the bride and groom took a trip near the church for a beautiful portrait session. Dinner flowed with great food by Center Table, cake by Vienna Cakes and Sound Impact made sure all the guests were entertained playing all of Ian and Vie’s favorite songs. Heartwarming messages by family made both Vie and Adrian tear up a bit good thing she still looks picture perfect thanks to make up by Lee Figueroa. In one of our favorite weddings this 2013 Ian and Vie ended the night as they had met, with joy amongst their dearest friends.

Mint To Be

Summer recently ended and with it comes my fascination with the mint color palette for weddings.

Mint is so refreshing to the eye and gives such a cool vibe especially when used as a background or an embellishment for weddings.

Fun, unique and signifies nature, renewal, growth and freshness!

If you wanna mix and match this color goes well with other popular wedding colors. Add blushes, light pink, purple, and even some shades of yellow!

For that all out refreshing feel try white it’s a great complimentary color to mint green.

MINT IB

Create a combination of any of these colors in your bouquets or centerpieces. Throw the color in little places like the ribbon on your favors, seating cards or on your wedding cake. Continue reading
