Tuesday Tips: 5 Wedding Color Blocking Do’s

January 16, 2018
The wedding has truly evolved over time. Before, only one color was incorporated as a wedding motif, but throughout the years, couples and experts became more fearful and experimental. They mix and match every color possible to convey a certain mood and ambiance depending on the theme. Some found success but others failed. So if you’re one of those who don’t know where to start in choosing the right matching colors, you are in the right page. We list down today 5 tips to getting your wedding more colorful:

1. Stick to one hue: There’s nothing wrong in sticking to one color, but allowing different shades of that particular hue as a motif is another story—a surprising one at that. Various shades create depth and flow. Even though you have different shades incorporated in your wedding, it will still look fluid and not forced.

2. Be fearful (moderately): If you have the knack for matching colors and for styling, then go for it! But be moderate! It’s okay to have more than one color motif up to 5, but if you think it will sore your eyes, then probably you’re not doing it right. Having the color wheel within your reach will come handy this time.
3. Swim against the current (trendy): Greenery was so last year, and Ultra Violet is in as the color of the year! But this doesn’t mean you have to simply go with this just for the sake of being trendy! Do not go with the flow; swim against the current. The trend changes and the fad fades!

4. Be mindful of the surroundings: Always be intuitive and look for the color of the church, the reception and even the colors of the flowers you want for your wedding. This is often overlooked in the process, but ignoring these things will ruin the total experience.
5. Consult experts: This is no brainer, but always check in with your stylists. They are called stylists for many reasons. And there’s no harm in questioning him or even in doing your own research. So open your lappy now and surf the net!

Tuesday Tips: Unveiling All Hidden Wedding Venue Costs

December 19, 2017

More often than not, wedding venues require you to pay additional miscellaneous fees apart from the costs of renting the place. For many, these are often regarded as hidden costs, but if only had you ask or did a thorough research, these wouldn’t have shocked you. These venues do not include these costs just to milk your wallet dry, but to provide you and your guests the optimal experience. Therefore today, we help you unveil some of the hidden wedding venue fees.

1. Corkage fee: This is true to almost all venues, particularly in hotels, pavilions, and event houses. Bringing in external drink and wedding food such as cake, would require you to pay for this fee.

2. Overtime fee: Venues are rented for certain hours only, hence if you lose track of time while having fun in the reception, then be prepared to pay extra bucks.

3. Transportation fee: If you decided to hold your wedding in a far-flung province, then you have to take into account the transportation. These venues more often than not offer transportation for your guests especially if they need to be transferred from one venue to another.

4. Local Government Permit: You have to apply and pay for government permits especially if you decide to get hitched in public places like park or beach.

 

5. Generator: Speaking of a beach wedding or any outdoor venues, you need a generator for power or to run the electricity. This is also applicable to indoor locations, unless you’re okay with dancing in the dark.

6. Portable Restrooms: If your wedding is done outside and far from any facility, then you need to bring in or pay for portable and stylish toilets.

7. Tent: This is very important especially if it is done outside. This is needed when the heat is scorching or the rain is heavily pouring.
