Tuesday Tips–How To Pick A Wedding Theme

Perfect Day Wedding Planners Super Bowl Football Wedding Theme

Combining the dreams, tastes, likes/dislikes, nationalities and personalities of two people for one of the biggest days of your lives is a big feat. Your wedding choices will be the first of many big decisions you make in your married life.

Here are some questions to ask each other and tips for choosing a theme you are both happy with:

1. HERITAGE — Consider the nationalities of your families. Have you always wanted to incorporate traditions from your religion into your wedding day? How will this play out in your choices together? Maybe you’ll both decide a destination wedding that fits with your culture is the best plan!

2. COLORS — This is usually the starting point for many couples. Maybe talk first as a couple about the colors you don’t like and go from there. It’s usually best to pick two or three contrasting colors instead of just one. You could even just go with different hues of the same color. Here’s a great Pinterest board with some color palette ideas. We also have several color inspirations on our Pinterest boards.

3. SEASON — Would you like the season of your wedding to dictate your decor theme? Fall is a wonderful time for an outdoor wedding and usually calls for the rich, deep colors of brown, orange, yellow and green. Winter is a wonderful time for blues and whites or the bright reds and greens of Christmas time. Spring is typically filled with a mix of pastel colors and the fresh floral blooms of the season. Summer is a great time for a beach theme.

4. LOCATION — You’ll want to make sure that any colors or themes you use don’t clash with your venue. If the room where you’re holding your ceremony has an art deco vibe to it, a vintage or shabby chic inspired theme will probably not work out too well.

There are many things to consider as you pick out the basic components to your wedding. However, once these are chosen, other decisions may fall right into place. Your Chicago area wedding planners are standing ready to help!

Tuesday Tips–Four Things To Look For In A Travel Agent or Honeymoon Planner

Perfect Day Wedding Planners Honeymoon Travel Agent Heart Beach

Your honeymoon is probably the most important trip you will ever take. It also represents a significant financial investment for the two of you. So doesn’t it make sense to work with a travel agent that takes an active interest in you as a couple?

Here are four things a good honeymoon planner or travel agency will do when helping you plan your perfect honeymoon:

1. They will take the time to get to know you. They are eager to learn about your likes and dislikes, what your budget is,  and what the words “trip of a lifetime” means to you.

2. They offer to formulate options and itineraries based on your personal information and their own experiences with multiple destinations and resorts.

3. They are able to put together a personalized package, including airfare, hotels, transfers and insurance. A travel agent can typically save you a considerable amount of money. They can offer you unpublished discounted pricing and get special upgrades that you couldn’t get on your own.

4. They offer to send you a presentation complete with photos, resort amenities and excursions so that you can really envision what your honeymoon will be like. You might have a perfect geographical location in mind for your honeymoon, but do you know the best place to stay to enjoy real quiet time? A good travel agent knows where you can enjoy high adventure, what resorts treat you like royalty, and where you can get the best service…plus a whole lot more.

When you use a honeymoon planner (or travel agent), the work, worry and stress is removed from your plate. You’ll get everything at a fantastic price, without all the time consuming hassle of planning it yourself. Contact your wedding planner today for recommendations on travel agents they have had experience with. They are your best source!

Combine your desires with the expert travel knowledge of a seasoned agent and your honeymoon will be perfect from start to end.

Thursday Trends — Destination Weddings

Perfect Day Wedding Planners  Destination Wedding — Beachfront Ceremony

Believe it or not, some destination weddings can come in under the cost of a traditional wedding at a local venue. You will just be spending your money in a different way. You will probably end up inviting fewer guests and be able to spend more intimate time with them during the wedding festivities.

When you have a lot of family spread out, it’s the perfect way to bring everyone together. Quality family time in a gorgeous locale, with your closest loved ones, will be that much more special than a huge guest list of people you don’t know as well. What’s not to love about this?

Here are a few questions for you and your spouse-to-be to ask yourselves when considering a destination wedding possibility:

  1. Do you have a specific resort or destination (country) in mind?
  2. Are you looking for an all inclusive resort?
  3. Are you looking for an adults’ only resort?
  4. Do you want a quiet, romantic resort or a more upbeat and lively one?
  5. Do you prefer a fabulous beach or is having a great pool more important?
  6. What kind of room options do you prefer (ocean view, standard, Jacuzzi suites, etc.)?

Remember, though, that destination weddings can be tricky to plan from far away. It’s really important to not be shy about asking lots of questions. Whether you are planning a wedding in the Bahamas or a Vineyard in Napa Valley, make sure you compare at least 3-4 venues before making your final decision. Here’s a few questions to consider:

1. Is the date available? (Aha….the most important question!)

2. What are a few of the best features of a wedding at your facility versus your competitors?

3. What kind of wedding packages do you offer? Or is everything custom or à la carte?

4. If there is not a specific wedding package, how are weddings priced? Is there a per guest price?

5.  How do prices vary according to the season, day of the week, or time of day?

One bonus about destination weddings is that the celebrations are usually spread out over several days. This creates a wonderful opportunity for more celebrations, such as dinners, parties and even a little sightseeing! You can lavish your dearest friends and family with unique activities, experiences and group events.
