10 Great Destination Wedding Themes


, , , ,

A destination wedding doesn’t mean you can’t have a theme. In fact, destination wedding themes can be great fun, and can add a special touch to the beautiful location.

Wedding Theme Ideas

  1. Beach. A beach wedding is an obvious choice for many destination weddings. Think about how to bring the island feel into your nuptials.
  2. Fairy tale. Every bride wants to feel like a princess on her big day, and a fairy tale wedding is the perfect way to make this feeling the center of your wedding.
  3. Extreme. Love sky diving and bungee jumping? Bring this into your I dos for an unforgettable wedding day.
  4. Rustic. A rustic wedding is perfect if you want something laid back, relaxed, and comfortable.
  5. Holiday. Christmas can come any time of the year with a holiday theme for your wedding day.
  6. Geeky. Video games can be more than a pastime! Bring your favorite gadgets into your big day with a bit of geek chic.
  7. Vintage. Think of your favorite bygone era and channel all of its beauty into your big day.
  8. Eco-friendly. Make your big day good for the planet with sustainable favors and an environmentally friendly ethos.
  9. Dark. If you’re a fan of the macabre, why not have it as part of your wedding? Ditch the whites and pastels and go for blacks and reds.
  10. Parisian glamour. Nothing says romance like Paris, and it’s possible to bring a bit of cafe culture to your wedding day with this theme.

Where Do Celebrities Go For Their Honeymoon


, , , , , , , ,

Truth be told we’re all excited when a celebrity of any sort announces their engagement, wedding or vow renewal.  In fact, it’s been estimated that over 3 billion people watched Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s nuptials.

But as an online honeymoon registry website, we’re interested in where they all honeymoon.   Aren’t you?


Below we’ve compiled a list of A-listers and their amazing honeymoon destinations:

  • Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t go to some far-off destination for their honeymoon. Instead, they opted for a domestic paradise and stayed at the Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain in Arizona.
  • Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban‘s honeymoon landed them in Bora Bora, paying a reported $15,000 per night at the St. Regis resort. The couple flew in via private jet, where customs officers checked their passports while the couple waited on the plane.
  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shelled out a reported $5,000 a night to stay on a private island in the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. The Telegraph reported that the couple had a personal chef and a butler for the duration of their stay. The royal couple thought they had found the ultimate private island, after renting out 11 villas for an estimated $720,000.
  • Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher jetted from Georgia to Tahiti for their romantic honeymoon at the Le Taha’a Resort. They stayed in a over-water suite, which go for $2,000 per night, and enjoyed snorkeling, as well as a helicopter tour of the island.

Planning a Destination Wedding

If it’s still a bit cold where you are, you might be thinking about winging away to a sunnier location for your wedding day. Planning a destination wedding can be a challenge, but can also be very rewarding.

Destination Wedding

A destination wedding can be a great escape for you and your guests, but it’s important to do a bit of research about your chosen location first. Finding out things like the cost of travel to the destination (both for you and your guests), local events, and weather patterns. Not every beach location is created equal, and not every month is equally beautiful, so planning ahead can make a big difference.

While your wedding is your day in the end, knowing your guests’ expectations can also be important when you decide on a destination wedding. A destination wedding within the US can be a great choice, as it will be more likely your guests will be able to afford the travel. Of course, with so many bargain flights available, don’t rule out a fabulous beach wedding in the Bahamas!

Smartphones At Weddings: Pro and Con


, , , , ,

It’s very likely that many of your guests will arrive at your wedding armed with their smartphones. But are they a good or bad addition to weddings?

Like any cell phone, a smartphone can be an unwanted distraction. If your guests leave their ringers on, or even go so far as to text or take calls during your wedding, the disruption is obvious.

However, with smartphones, there are also the potential distractions of social networking, news sites, and everything else the internet has to offer. It can also mean your guests are posting photos of your big day before it’s even over.

While this can be a positive thing – and photosharing apps can make it very easy for you to get loads of candid shots of your wedding – it can also be a potential negative. If you have a small guest list, friends who weren’t invited might feel even more left out as you get tagged in photos of people having a great time.

If you’re planning a destination wedding, you might not have as much of a problem, particularly if your guests will face roaming charges. However, you can also request that they keep phones off, and photos offline, until after the wedding.

Spring 2013 Wedding Trends


, , , ,

Whether you’re planning a destination wedding or staying closer to home, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the arrival of spring. There are plenty of great trends that are set to be big for the season’s weddings, and they offer great inspiration for any upcoming wedding.

Grey wedding color ideas -- Spring 2013 Wedding Trend

  • Grey as a wedding color. Far from being drab or boring, grey is a great addition to a wedding palette. It looks amazing next to spring’s brightest colors, like yellow and pink, while adding a touch of retro class.
  • Small wedding parties are a trend, with many couples going without any bridesmaids or a best man. Instead, close friends and family are being asked to take the lead on parts of the wedding, whether it’s doing the bride’s hair or heading up a photosharing aspect of the big day.
  • Birds are a big part of spring themes. From rustic cut-outs to ornate bird cage decor, anything that chirps adds a fun and beautiful touch to a wedding style.

If you want to know how to incorporate these or any other great spring wedding trends into your big day, give us a call!

Former Friends star Jennifer Aniston is, according to most reports, nearing her wedding day. But it’s still a bit of mystery where she and fiance Justin Theroux will be celebrating their nuptials.

Gossip blogger Perez Hilton had reported that the couple were planning a destination wedding in Hawaii, where Justin has a cottage. However, Jennifer’s representatives have told he New York Post that they won’t be having a Hawaiian wedding.

One thing that does seem certain is that she’ll be wearing a Valentino dress for her big day. The actress has been meeting with the designer and will have a fair bit of input on the overall look.

Many of the Hawaii rumors also stem from the guess that the couple will keep things quiet. A destination wedding is a great choice for them — or any couple — looking for a low key and very special day.
