What a bridesmaid should look like at a wedding?

A wedding ceremony is an event where many people participate. A certain group of them performs the functions assigned to them by the traditions and decision of the newlyweds. For example, one of the main roles among the invited by the bride goes to the maid of honor. Since she should help the bride and groom in everything and be around all the time, she must always be on the public eye. So, she should look perfect and, ideally, the look of the maid of honor should be in harmony with the bride’s look, but at the same time not attract too much attention, outshining the leading lady of the event.

What should a bridesmaid wear to such a pleasant and honorable mission as a wedding ceremony? After all, a bridesmaid also wants to look unconventional, solemn and moderately restrained. First of all, when choosing a dress, you need to focus on the outfit that is right for you and will correspond to the celebration character. In this case, you are welcome to be versatile. For example, try mixing things from different brands. In one store, buy a chic pencil skirt, and in another, fit it together with a more solemn, even “airy” blouse. You can also buy an elegant black dress of a democratic brand, and complement it with an awesome jacket and stylish accessories.

If the reason for looking for an outfit is a summer wedding in the Dominican Republic, an elegant and feminine full-skirt sundress will suit best. Just be careful with the style and color, so that the selected outfit does not resemble casual clothes for the beach. Do not forget that the bridesmaid dress should not be conservative at all. It would be useful to wonder about the latest trends, because you can look fashionable and festive at the same time.

In addition, before choosing a dress, the bridesmaid should consult with the bride, specifying in what style the wedding ceremony will be, what dress the bride preferred and what she wishes for the bridesmaid to wear. Do not forget about seasonality, as well as predicted weather conditions.

Moreover, a bride who honors European traditions can invite several bridesmaids to her wedding. In this case, of course, you can go the standard way and choose the same dresses for all the bridesmaids. But every girl has her own color type, figure features, so that the outfit of a certain style and color simply cannot suit everyone. And the bride hardly wants her original wedding to spoil the mood to any girl, who following the whim of the newlywed, will feel insecure in the wrong outfit. Therefore, it is better for bridesmaids to choose dresses that are similar in style, but have different designs.The length can be the same, for example. Moreover, choosing various shades, you can create a special entourage that will further emphasize the snow-white robe of the bride. However, the choice of color for outfits can be determined by the theme of the celebration, but, if necessary, you can play with the shades.

Bridesmaid dress color

  1. The white color for the bridesmaid is taboo. This is the prerogative of the bride.
  2. A black dress is also inappropriate, even if it is a very original wedding.
  3. An excellent choice – blue, pink, terracotta and honey shades. The bridesmaid should stick to the pastel palette when choosing a dress if there are no special instructions from the bride. A good solution would be a dress of silver or gold palette. For those who are alien to light clothing, chocolate, burgundy and dark blue colors are suitable.
  4. Recently, wedding fashion has been focusing on ivory, which is versatile, elegant and can be harmoniously combined with the bride’s dress. In this case, the bridesmaid dress should be simple and perfectly tailored on the figure.
  5. Modern original wedding welcomes the choice in favor of a red bridesmaid outfit. It is not only relevant, but also very solemn. But such a dress requires minimal makeup and the absence of bulky accessories.

The bridesmaid attire

Basically, stylists recommend A-line models to bridesmaids. This is a dress with a tight-fitting top, which gradually expands down.

Also, the bridesmaid can choose an outfit in the Empire style, which is characterized by a flowing skirt with pleats and a high waist.

It is better for the bridesmaid to abandon the ball gowns, tight-fitting mini-skirts and trousers.

The bridesmaid dress length

The perfect solution for the bridesmaid is a cocktail dress just below the knees. Following etiquette, a long dress should not be worn during the day. But for the wedding, you can prepare two dresses: a short one for dowry and ceremony, and a long one for a banquet. However, no one strictly follows this rule.

The bridesmaid dress can be both short and long. Butto avoid misbalance, remember: the longer the dress is, the more open the upper part can be and vice versa.

The bridesmaid shoes and accessories

  1. If a wedding is plannedin the Dominican Republic and the ceremony takes place on the beach, it is better to refuse high heels. Moreover, in such shoes legs get tired quickly, and the bridesmaid has to stand a lot, walk and dance during the event.
  2. If the bride is much shorter than the bridesmaid, then the latter, for the sake of her friend, should completely abandon the idea to wear heels, choosing flats.
  3. If you have a dress in pastel colors, then motley shoes will help to add brightness to your look.
  4. The bridesmaid should have a handbag. The size should be small, but sufficient for all the necessary lady’s little things. Choose the color of the handbag to match the shade of your shoes.

The bridesmaid hairstyle

The hairstyle will help to complement and complete the bridesmaid look. What styling is suitable in this case?

– slight negligence: a hairstyle that seems imperfect will give a touch of charm to any person. This may be an incomplete form of a chignon, a broken strand. Ideally, the bride and her bridesmaid should have hairstyles that combine with each other. Therefore, it is better that the same hairdresser does your hair;

– graceful curls: neatly twisted locks that carelessly fall on the shoulders, this is a win-win choice. Just decide on the size, thickness and shape of the curls. You can also complement them with a beautiful hairpin or fresh flowers;

– plait: ideal for dresses in the Greek style;

– bun: elegant, simple and suits most girls and almost all dresses.

 

If you have been honored to be a bridesmaid at your friend’s wedding, then follow these tips, be simple and elegant not to outshine the bride, and you will certainly make a success!

Vintage style wedding

Nowadays, every couple wants their original wedding to be the most beautiful, interesting and unforgettable. Any whim can be satisfied and the only limitation consists in financial capacity. The latest wedding trends are increasingly turning to the old days. After all, our past has a rich history and is an inexhaustible source of good style and taste when there was another life and other people filled with bright hope, purity and creativity. Perhaps, this is precisely why vintage style is so popular today. It appears not only in interiors and casual clothes with accessories. Many modern couples want to have a vintage-style wedding ceremony.

Vintage-style wedding decor

Someone wants to walk down the aisle in a simple and intimate atmosphere, while someone prefers luxury and much pomp in everything. Vintage allows both. Nevertheless, a wedding in this style is a small event, where the newlyweds are in the spotlight, surrounded by the atmosphere of the past, so charming and unforgettable. This is an amazingly elegant event with a consummate sense of style.

Vintage decor begins with a wedding invitation. People create them of aged paper, use a warm ink tone and retro fonts. On the one hand of such a card, you can write an invitation text by hand. On the other hand, a photo of the loving couple is often placed, which is being aged through special means. If your original weddingis vintage, you can additionally decorate invitations with floral patterns, beads, brooches, bows, lace. The main thing is that they are designed in a delicate floral color palette, which will correspond to the hall decoration palette, wedding dresses and holiday floristry. Although vintage can be different (strict, delicate, elegant, warm and romantic), the color scheme should be devoid of any expression. That is, choose such calm, pastel and light colors as pink, light gray, white, coffee and similar shades. If you want your original wedding to be more expressive in flowers, give preference to shades of precious stones: ruby, pearls, emerald, sapphire.

The newlyweds’ look and a dress code for guests

The color of the bride’s dress does not have to be white. The ideal solution is pastel muted tones, coffee with milk, champagne splashes, etc. The main vintage sign at the wedding is a comb with precious stones, an exquisite veil, which is complemented with a brooch, stockings, shoes of that time, lace gloves. Lace must be present in the decor of the dress.

A vintage-style wedding ceremony also provides for the appropriate choice of bride’s hairstyle. It can be soft curls or restrained styling. The main thing is that the style of the bride should be fully sustained.

The finishing touch of the bride’s look will be a vintage wedding bouquet. These are lovely, elegant flowers, skillfully and tastefully composed in a single composition. The main thing is that the bouquet recalls the atmosphere of the past. Therefore, elements of traditional decoration should be present in it.

The groom, dressed in vintage style, wears a vest or suspenders, a bow tie and a hat. Accessories will not be superfluous. For example, a watch on a chain perfectly complements the look of a man.

Guests’ dress code does not have to be necessarily stylized. But for bridesmaids it is worth choosing dresses of the same color with such vintage details as veils, hats, stockings, etc. The groom’s friends, without whom the wedding ceremony isn’t complete, should be dressed in the same costumes or at least have identical elements in their looks – suspenders, buttonholes, hats or something like that.

Vintage wedding venue

If you choose an outdoor event as the venue for your vintage wedding, you definitely will not lose. It is always something exquisite, special, comfortable. The venue for organizing the celebration can be arranged on the banks of a river, on a mountain hill or in the garden of a country house. But if you are worried that unpredictable weather will let you down at the most crucial moment, an estate, an old theater or a classic restaurant will be a great venue. Regardless of the option, the newlyweds will finally choose, the main thing is that the design contains vintage attributes. The decor of the hall can be radically different: alluring, bright and magnificent or unobtrusive, touching and modest. Choose what is closer to both of you.

Shabby books, old furniture, antique frames with old photographs, lace napkins, crystal dishes, satin bows on tableware, tall vases, delicate bouquets on tables will help create a suitable atmosphere for a vintage event. In a word, any things “from the past”. Miniature birds in cages, mirrors, artificial flowers, candlesticks with ordinary candles, brooches, statuettes of ancient times will perfectly fit into the vintage style. And even if you choose such an original option as a wedding in the Dominican Republic, then all these things will help you travel into the past.

Do not forget about the musical arrangement. It is important that it also be old. A gramophone, player or reel tape recorder will harmoniously complement the vintage-style decor. If you decide to order an orchestra, then select a suitable repertoire in advance.

As for the menu, here choose everything to your taste and financial capabilities. But the wedding cake must be designed in vintage style. Wide possibilities of confectioners will allow implementing this idea without any problem. A sweet masterpiece in soft colors, complemented by a variety of patterns, sugar bows and edible lace, will be the main decoration of the festive table.

Vintage wedding transport

If you have a wedding in the Dominican Republic, why not walk down the aisle on horseback. It is very beautiful and romantic. Also very vintage! But small cars in retro style will also suit. However, forget the idea of using usual chic limousines. Otherwise, you will break the wholevintage style of your celebration and seem completely tasteless.

Such an amazing atmosphere of a vintage wedding will take the whole celebration to those old times, to which you wanted to become closer at least for one but very  important and crucial day for every new family.

Wedding Budget

Wedding Budget

A wedding ceremony is a celebration associated with significant expenses. Not everyone can sacrifice his or her budget for a big celebration. That is why it is important to elaborate a wedding budget correctly so that the celebration does not produce a harmful impact on the financial standing of your young family.

The wedding budget includes many components.

1. Bride’s apparel

First, the bride should decide if her dress is to be tailor-made or ready-to-wear. Renting a dress is the most budget-friendly solution. Tailor-made dresses are usually much more expensive. However, if some of your friend or relatives can sew a dress for you, you will only have to buy fabric and other necessary items. As a result, you will get an exclusive dress tailor-made for you that will fit you well and will give a unique touch to your original wedding.

The must-have list also includes a veil/headpiece, gloves, shoes, garter, stockings, and accessories. Although at first sight these items seem to cost just a penny, they lead to significant expenses.

As for the hairstyle, here you have to choose what you really want: save time or money? If you want the former, just invite a stylist to your home. If you prefer the latter, you will have to go to a beauty salon early in the morning to have enough time for styling your hair. There, you can also get your make-up. We highly recommend using the services of a make-up artist, since on such an important day, any bride feels excited and can hardly create an ideal make-up on her own.

2. Bridegroom’s apparel

It is better to buy a shirt, a tie and a suit in one shop. You may get a good discount for a big purchase. A tailor-made attire for the bridegroom is necessary when the bridegroom’s body is not standard and it is hard to choose ready-to-wear clothes.

3. Engagement rings

Since engagement rings are chosen for the rest of one’s life, it is important to consider this fact when selecting them. It is not a good idea to experiment with engagement rings and buy some extraordinary or fashionable rings thatwill get outdated in a few years. It is better to opt for classical rings made of gold or silver. The price of rings depends on the quality of metal and presence of engraving.

4. Bride’s bouquet and bridegroom’s buttonhole

The price of the bouquet and the buttonhole that are designed in the same style depends on the choice of flowers, design, technology and complexity of work. Consider variants suggested by several florists to choose the most budget-friendly offer.

5. Wedding invitations

Your original wedding deserves to be exclusive, and it should be reflected in each element of the wedding, starting from invitations. If you do not want to spend money on them, feel free to invite close relatives and friends in person or by phone. As for the guests coming from far away and special invitees, send them invitations. A beautiful and unique design of the invitation cards is very important, since the guests will keep them as a memento of your celebration.

6. Wedding cake

Multi-tiered wedding cakes are quite expensive, but the cake is a must-have element of any wedding. Besides, traditional wedding ceremonies often feature such symbolic elements as loaves of bread.

7. Wedding cortege

To save money on this article of your wedding budget, you can rent cars of your relatives or close friends. Undoubtedly, you know somebody who has beautiful cars. However, if there are many guests who will accompany you, you might need to rent a bus for them.

As for the décor of your transportation means, you can adorn the cars on your own or if your budget allows it, use the services of professional decorators.

8. Banquet hall

wedding in lavenderIf you are on a tight budget, decide what is more important for you: a table full of exquisite food in a modestly decorated hall or simple food in a hall elaborately decorated with fresh flowers, fabric elements and balloons.

9. Wedding photoshoot and video

The services or professional photographers and camera operators are quite expensive. However, an original wedding is such a unique event that leaves many beautiful memories.

Your emotions captured in photos and the wedding video will remind you of your unique wedding whenever you look at them. The price range for professional photo and video services depends on the quality of equipment, professionalism and fame of photographer, presence of assistants if necessary, and additional pre-wedding session called “Love Story”.

10. Wedding leader

It is hard to imagine a celebration without dancing and entertainment. A professional Master of Ceremonies will help organize contests and games for your guests and keep the celebration running smoothly. To make sure your guests do not get bored just sitting at the table and eating for hours, hire musicians to your liking, who will entertain the guests with songs and pleasant melodies.

11. Extra things

If after elaborating your budget you have some money left, you can spend it on fireworks, fire-show, performance of dancers and other extra elements of your wedding program.

12. Honeymoon

If you want to spend your honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, but your budget is tight for this, there is a solution! Don’t forget about the wedding gifts that your guests are preparing for you. You can ask them beforehand to give you money as a gift so that you spend it on your honeymoon.

13. Where to get money for wedding?

If you do not manage to save enough money for your wedding on your own and your parents cannot help you out, there are other solutions to this challenge. You can take out a loan. It is quite easy: you just need your ID, earnings certificate and a couple of other documents depending on the country where you request a loan and your bank requirements. Many banks even offer special wedding loans with convenient terms for the newlyweds.

You may also do without the earnings certificate if you request a loan in a credit union. However, the interest rate is much higher there. But the loans are usually approved quickly and easily.

It is also possible to use the services of a pawnshop where you can pawn personal property in exchange for money. You will get your property back when your return the loan from the money given as a gift by your guests. Make sure you carefully read the contract with the pawnshop before signing it to safeguard yourself from possible hardships.

A loan is not the right solution for you if:

  • You are not sure your marriage will be strong
  • Your income is not stable
  • You are planning for a baby
  • You want to pawn your lodging

It is better to organize a modest family wedding than run an unjustified and big risk of money loss.

The best events for guests at a wedding in the Dominican Republic

Even when a wedding ceremony is celebrated on a Dominican beach, it will be boring and tedious if you do not prepare a good entertainment program for your guests. Common contests and games are not enough for such an amazing place. Here you must try more amusing and entertaining activities.

Outdoor games

Чем занять гостей на свадьбеDivide your guests into teams and think over some topic for your game that will be interesting for all. You can alsohave a quest so that the guests solve riddles to find a prize. Such outdoor activity will be admired by those who do not like spending a lot of time around a festive table. Besides, team games will help your guests feel more relaxed and sociable, which is good especially if it is the first time they see each other. Make sure you inform your guests about this activity in advance so that they can bring comfortable shoes and clothes to participate in the games.

Memories about the newlyweds

If your original wedding is a loud celebration with a lot of invitees, skip this activity. However, if on this important day you want to be surrounded only by the nearest and dearest, this activity is the right choice. Ask your invitees to prepare short stories about some important moment from your love life. May the bridegroom’s best friend remember how he was helping the bridegroom before the proposal. The newlyweds’ friends can also talk about the first encounter of the bride and the bridegroom. The parents may want to share a story about the first family meeting with the couple. This moving activity will create a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere on your wedding day.

Open-air cinema

If you shot a love story video before the wedding, may your guests also enjoy the result of your creative experience with the videographer. To save money and set up an open-air cinema on the beachwithout expensive equipment, just use some white linen. Extend it between the trees or special poles. Put chairs in rows and lay the festive table. It will be cozy, romantic and family-friendly.

Wedding master classes for the invitees

For the invitees who may get bored easily, include several master classes into the program of your original wedding. They will make your celebration not only entertaining, but also useful. You can opt for dancing classes, hand-made decoration for celebration or floristry master classes.

Partner dances are the best master class variant. The easiest to perform are bachata, salsa and hustle. Just a few words about the basic steps and the guests will practice their dancing skills. By the way, the newlyweds may also want to conduct the master class. In this case, they have to take a couple of dancing classes during their preparation for the wedding.

Beauty lovers will definitely enjoy a floristry master class. You can create different variants of the bride’s bouquet together with your invitees. Have in mind that a wedding celebration is a long and sometimes tiring experience, so it would be better to conduct a floristry master class at the beginning of the celebration, when the invitees are full of enthusiasm and energy. If you want to organize a dancing master class, the best time for it is in the middle of the celebration.

Congrats video for the newlyweds

Congrats for the newlywedsIf you want to combine an entertaining activity for the invitees with your good memories about your original wedding, invite a videographer to film congratulating speeches. After the celebration, the videographer will edit a film. Ask the master of ceremony to make a list of questions and then give them randomly to the guests. During the celebration, the videographer will invite the guests one by one to film their answers to the questions together with congrats and wishes for you. For the invitees to feel comfortable and look relaxed and easy-going in the video, start shooting only 2-3 hours after the beginning of the celebration. Such interesting, funny, original, useful and pleasant activity will help create a precious memento for the newlyweds and will symbolize the atmosphere of love, happiness and celebration.

Performers and show program

A wedding in the Dominican Republic is an interesting event by itself. However, the invitees may become bored of just observing a tropical landscape all day long. That is why add a performers’ show on the beach to your wedding celebration agenda. You can also choose a short show program. It will entertain the guests during the dinner and will not let them get bored. There are many variants of such programs. Consider a thematic sand show. For example, you can use sand images to relate your love story to the guests in the most original way.

If there are kids among the invitees, they will certainly like a bubbles show. Undoubtedly, adults will also admire it.

Be sure that a dance show will become a success. Professional dancers will contribute to an incredible festive atmosphere, making the event brighter.

As for the beginning of the show program, if your wedding is scheduled for the midday, it is convenient to start the show as early as at 1 p.m. Start with only one performance and distribute the rest of them throughout the celebration. Make sure there are more entertaining activities by the end of the celebration.

Sea boat trip

Since your wedding is celebrated on the beach, why not take advantage of the location and go on a boat trip? Depending on the number of guests and your budget, you can opt for a boat, a yacht, or a motorboat. You will be fascinated by the view over the shore from the vessel. The invitees will be able to swim in the open sea or practice fishing.

Horseback Riding

In the Dominican Republic, you can rent a horse and let your invitees enjoy horseback riding. An exciting activity for the wedding celebration, is not it? Horseback riding along the seashore will be a very enjoyable experience for your nearest and dearest.

The wedding in the Dominican Republic featuring one of such activities or even all of them will become an unforgettable event not only for the newlyweds, but also for their guests.

Wedding Dessert Table

Свадебный десертный стол

A wedding ceremony is a happy event accompanied by positive emotions, congratulations, much fun and, of course, a banquet. It is hard to imagine a wedding banquet without an assortment of desserts. They ideally culminate a festive dinner or lunch: most guests just cannot do without something sweet. That is why it is so important to know the rules of serving a wedding dessert table.

What for is a dessert table on a wedding?

Since at any celebration there is enough time for a cake, any original wedding also requires desserts. Women and kids love them most. However, not all kids can wait until the end of celebration when the most delicious treat is served. Thus, if there are many kids among your invitees, follow the European tradition of serving a dessert table. It means that a wedding cake is served at the end of celebration, but various desserts, such as small pastries, sweets, ice-cream, fruit or gelatinappear on a dessert table much earlier. This way, everyone has a chance to eat a dessert without waiting until the late night when a long-awaited cake is served.

If you want your guests to remember your original wedding for long, add some fun to the process of serving sweets. An excellent idea would be to order cookies with good prophesies or wishes so that you can share your happiness with the invitees. Besides, quite often after a heavy main course, the invitees just do not want to enjoy a sweet dessert. In this case, it is useful to prepare carton boxes or tartlet shells for the guests to store their desserts and take them home. Thus, after the celebration, you won´t have to think about what to do with the rest of the food: usually you do not want to throw it away and at the same time the food is not appetizing at all when you have a full stomach.

How to serve desserts on the wedding table?

A dessert table should be arrangedfor the sake of comfort so that the guests can easily take the desserts with their hands. That is why it is better to offer single serving desserts or desserts divided into portions. For each dessert table, it is necessary to prepare at least 5 different desserts. This way, the table appears to be beautifully arranged, offering desserts for all tastes.

If your wedding ceremonyis celebrated in summer, it is a good idea to treat the guests to ice cream in cups. Kids usually like this dessert. Adults will enjoy a refreshing ice cream cup in hot weather too.

What to serve for dessert on a wedding?

The choice of desserts depends on a chosen wedding style. If you follow folklore traditions, for example, you may choose fruit pies, donuts, curd cheese pie and other sweet pastries typical of the national cuisine of the country where you celebrate your wedding. In the United States, for instance, a wedding is usually celebrated with cupcakes, pop-cakes and other varieties of cakes. This kind of sweets is very easy to serve and allows for experiments with flavors and decorations.

As for the European dessert table, it usually includes cream pastries, marzipan, home cookies, gelatin and coffee. If you are planning to have an original weddingand want to surprise your guests with something extravagant and unusual, try such unique dessert options as bacon in chocolate, crispy insects in caramel coating and more unexpected desserts. However, we recommend preparing a traditional wedding cake anyway for some guests who do not like culinary experiments.

Fruit is always a win-win option. You can choose seasonal fruit especially at the end of summer. A dessert table of fruit is an ideal solution if you celebrate your wedding in the Dominican Republic. Such light, fresh and low-calorie desserts will be a success in hot weather when nobody wants heavy food. You can serve sliced or whole fruit. It is also suitable to prepare fruit canapé or fruit salads served in single-portion bowls.

Decoration of a wedding dessert table

It is important to decorate a dessert table in line with the style of your wedding ceremony. To add a special touch to the table, create beautiful pyramids of glasses with champagne, fold napkins following origami techniques, elaborate impressive sets of sweets and bouquets of candies. These tips will contribute to a unique and unforgettable design of your dessert table. If you also decorate the table with a chocolate fountain or frozen statuettes, you will undoubtedly enjoy a royal wedding ceremony.

A wedding cake is a must!

A wedding cake is an indispensable part of a festive table. It is the center of a solemn celebration. Its choice depends on a wedding style.

  1. Classical romantic style. If you want to organize a classical romantic celebration according to the best traditions for the nearest and dearest, with a ceremony at a church and a snow-white wedding dress, your cake should suit your wedding style as well. Opt for a multilevel cake with some light and soft filling. The design of the cake may include colors or decorative elements similar to those of your wedding dress or the décor of a banquet hall, for example, blue marzipan ribbons or huge lilacs on the dessert.
  2. Rock-style cake. If you decided to organize a rock-style wedding celebration, an unusual cake is a must. Its design may resemble a highway going up to the top of the cake with statuettes of Harley Davidson and the newlyweds nearby. A rock-style cake can also have a form of a guitar, a microphone, a Hollywood star with your names etc.
  3. Marine-style cake. If you are going to have a wedding in the Dominican Republic, the main treat of the dessert table will look impressive if created in blue color range and decorated with edible sweet starfish, fish, shells and pearls. It is also a good idea to order a cake in the form of an open seashell with a pearl inside.

Follow traditions

Traditional weddings in different countries include quite original elements. For example, a traditional Russian wedding includes a round loaf of bread and wedding “pine cones”. Parents meet the newlyweds with a loaf of bread and then treat the invitees to this loaf. As for the pine cones, the newlyweds take this dessert home to drink tea or share the cones with their relatives. People say that traditionally they used to give sweet pine cones to those who were eager to get married and have babies. A wedding pine cone was also a symbol of gratefulness for the gifts to the newlyweds. The tradition says that it was important to give away all the cones so that the newlyweds had a long and happy family life.

In modern Russia, pine cones can be rarely seen on weddings. Modern pastry chefs and bakers offer different fillings with raisin and dried apricots. However, people following authentic traditions can order classical pine cones symbolizing prosperity, happiness and financial stability.

If you decided to organize the pirate-themed wedding, your family life will be breathtaking and full of unforgettable amazing emotions! And Happypeoplewed will help to fulfill this dream.

How to choose a wedding arch?

If you are anticipating a wedding ceremonyin the nearest future, you might be thinking about how to plan an unforgettable celebration. If your ceremony is scheduledfor a warm season, consider organizing it outdoors. This format has many advantages.

To start with, you will enjoy a bright and festive atmosphere in nature. It would be also a good idea to organize a celebration in a beautiful country house or villa. Moreover, what about a wedding on a picturesque lawn or a forest edge? In summer, the invitees will be happy to feel the fresh breeze from a river. If you want to celebrate your wedding in the Dominican Republic, there is no better place for the celebration than a beach! The Dominican Republic offers a wide choice of beaches for all tastes. Any celebration in nature will be a success. Of course, you will need a wedding arch – almost the most important element of the wedding ceremony. It is especially applicable to the ceremonies celebrated outdoors. The arch can be bought or rented. What is really important is to choose the arch appropriate for the style of your celebration.

Insight into history

Modern stylish arches are traditionally made of wood. The original tradition implies fabrication of arches of natural wood. It is especially suitable for such event as an original wedding in eco style. The tradition of usage of wooden arches came from Europe and spread all over the world. The wood in this context has a symbolic meaning, signifying a new beginning, creation of family, joy and light. The image of this ancient symbol significantly determines the emotions experienced by the newlyweds and the invitees.

Modern tendencies

Modern wedding fashion is quite changeable: new trends appear every year. They influence not only wedding clothes, bouquets, decoration styles, invitations and food, but also wedding arches. Since off-site wedding ceremonies are very popular now, the arches draw more attention. Although most people imagine this wedding element in more or less similar way, there are many variants of wedding arches; and each of them is beautiful and unique.

Eternal classic

A classical wooden wedding arch has a natural color tone, although it is also acceptable to paint it into white. This variant has proven to be a success throughout many years, becoming well known from Hollywood films. Such option is ideal for a garden ceremony.

For the solid form of this arch to stand out, use decorations in moderation. To have a stylish wedding ceremony, decorate the arch with light fabric and elegant flower compositions. Traditional roses, popular peony, garden dahlia and aster. You are the one who makes a choice.

Eco style

One can express their love for nature through a semi-round or square arch made of twigs. Such design will be ideal for eco-style celebration that is very popular these days. This arch makes you think about fairy-tale creatures, forest nymphs and elves. For its decoration, you will need simple and not very lush flowers, such as tender crocus or chamomile. To give a final touch to your original wedding, add some fern to the natural texture of twigs.

Marine style

nautical themeMany couples are dreaming about a wedding on the beach. It is so easy to turn this dream into reality! Just imagine a bridegroom in a snow-white shirt, a bride in a light dress, both strollingbarefoot along the beach … The contrast between their look and blue water and light blue sky is simply amazing! Light breeze, sand, and the sun – what can be better on this important day? If you like marine romantic tendencies, choose an arch in “Assol” style. It is about a combination of rough nautical ropes and natural laconic bamboo. The simple form emphasizes the importance of such a significant event as your wedding in the Dominican Republic, adding charm to the moment when two loving hearts are celebrating their union, and drawing attention to the newlyweds.

Not to overload the arch with decoration, choose small adorning elements, such as stones, shells, light chiffon bands and wooden beads.

Eternal love

The wedding is associated with many customs, traditions and superstitions. For example, the surface of a wedding ring must be smooth so that the family life of the newlyweds be peaceful. Besides, the ring, which by itself has a form of a circle, symbolizes eternity – eternity of love. The most creative decorators will easily design an arch in form of such eternal circle for your feelings to be eternal as well.

Door to the future

Youroriginal wedding is not only an opportunity to stand out and be remembered for long. It is a day when “I” turns into “We” and when you make a step into a new life. That is why it will be unusual and symbolic to design an arch in form of a door. You will be able to open and enter this door right after being announced the husband and wife. It will mean that everything that has been before is left in the past. Now you are making an important step into the future full of love and happiness.

To make a door-like arch, you can decorate it with large and lush flowers (for example, peony) or contrasting bouquets.

Gazebo arch

To celebrate your wedding in a more intimate and private atmosphere, choose a gazebo arch on 4 stakes. Such gazebo will protect you from the hot sun and will look great in the photos. The gazebo arch can be decorated with airy fabric of light colors, while the stakes can be adorned with garlands matching the colors of the bride´s bouquet.

Happypeoplewed will gladly help you to organize the wedding ceremony in your chosen style and make your stay unforgettable on the hot beaches of the Dominican Republic.

What to take on a honeymoon?

Собираемся в медовый месяц

Preparations for a wedding ceremony are almost over. Now, it is time to look forward to the most exciting and long-awaited events – a wedding ceremony and a honeymoon. Undoubtedly, a honeymoon trip is your deserved vacation after all the hustle and bustle, and it should be of the utmost quality for you to get a red-carpet treatment. To make sure you have an ideal honeymoon trip, it is recommended to start packing your bags long beforehand – about a month before the trip, since you may often discover that something is missing when you are already on your way to the honeymoon destination. Who doubts that it is better to pack the bags quietly, meticulously, and without any rush? Moreover, right before the departure, it is good to check the must-have things according to a list. Anyway, do not take too many stuff on you. It is better to put only the most necessary things in your luggage – nothing extra.

Clothes

If your honeymoon trip starts right after your unique wedding celebration, the bags should be packed long before the ceremony. You should also have ready some extra clothes that you will wear on your way to the honeymoon destination. Choose clothes according to the season. The most important thing is that they should be comfortable. Take several outfits and sets of underwear. If you travel to the sea, the bride will need a bikini, several long and some short dresses, a couple of tops/t-shirts, shorts and a skirt, two pairs of footwear. The bridegroom will need just a few things: a pair of shorts and t-shirts. He can also take light summer trousers and a shirt for evening strolls. He also needs a swimsuit, of course. Make sure you take some clothes for rainy or cold weather. If you are planning a honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, mind that it often features short but heavy downpours of rain from May to November. Throughout the rest of the year, the weather is dry. If you are going to frequent cafes or restaurants, make sure you take some clothes and shoes to meet the dress code rules. You will also need sunglasses, and hats/sombreros to cover your head. If you are going to the snow-covered mountains, the outfit will be different: baselayers, sweaters, ski trousers and equipment (although the equipment can be rented already at the sport base). Do not take too many things on you. Anyway, you will always buy something new while on vacation.

Documents

A wedding ceremony is all about hustle and bustle. That is why do not forget about the most important thing. While you can buy clothes almost everywhere and your vacation won’t suffer if you forget your favorite t-shirt at home, without IDs, passports and tickets you won’t be able to travel at all. So, before departure, make sure you have on you the following documents: passports, driver’s license (if you want to rent a car), hotel voucher and tickets, as well as insurance policy, and a marriage certificate. Do not forget to take some cash. It is recommended to change a small amount of money into the currency of the country of destination before departure. The rest of money can be kept on your credit card. Make sure you do not put your money nor credit cards into your checked luggage.

Personal hygiene and cosmetic products

Of course, hotels offer a basic set of personal hygiene products. Moreover, you can buy cosmetics upon arrival. However, is it reasonable to spend extra money on what you already have? Besides, it may be hard to find in foreign countries the shampoo or bath shower to which you are accustomed. Even if the wedding ceremony is already over, you won’t be excited to get some allergy to new cosmetic products on vacation, will you? That is why we recommend putting in your luggage such things as the toothpaste and brushes, shampoo, safety razor and shaving foam, handkerchiefs, wipes, bath pouf, and soap. Women should also take sanitary towels and a cosmetic bag. If you are going to a hot and sunny country, do not forget to take a sunscreen.

First-aid kit

The first-aid kit is a must wherever you go. Even if you are going to stay at a five-star resort that has a doctor on its territory and a hospital nearby, and you have a medical insurance. Undoubtedly, it is necessary to put in your luggage the medication you take on a regular basis, for example in case of exacerbation of chronic diseases. Besides, an original wedding is usually associated with anxiety and concern. These feelings may trigger exacerbation of some chronic diseases. Moreover, common first-aid medication should also be on hand: a sticking plaster, dressing, cotton, iodine or brilliant green, alcohol, elastic band, Bepanthen or Panthenol ointment against sunburns. Make sure to take a common painkiller that has proven effective for you before. It should help in case of a headache, muscle- or stomachache. In a foreign country, you will surely try some exotic food or just some products to which you are not accustomed. That is why take some medication for constipation, diarrhea, and indigestion. Just in case, your first-aid kit should also contain NeoCitran (or any other medication that relieves fever), medication against the flu, cough, eye and ear drops. If you suffer from allergy, take some allergy relief medicine. Some repellent sprays or creams will also be useful. Those who use birth control pills should also put them in their luggage, although a honeymoon is an excellent time for planning for pregnancy. If you conceive a baby during your honeymoon, this first vacation after marriage will be absolutely unforgettable. Finally, to capture every happy moment of your honeymoon, do not forget to take a photo- or video camera. You may also need chargers for smartphones, a phrasebook (if you do not speak a foreign language), and a travel iron. Remember that a romantic and unforgettable honeymoon is not just a vacation, but also the beginning of a long and happy family life. May your honeymoon be a success!

If you decided to organize the pirate-themed wedding, your family life will be breathtaking and full of unforgettable amazing emotions! And Happypeoplewed will help to fulfill this dream.

Wedding Bachata Dance from Unforgettable Dominican Republic

A dance for people is a way of expressing their feelings and emotions through movements without words. A wedding dance is an opportunity to express love to each other with words, movements, emotions and touches. Although not long ago, a traditional wedding dance was waltz, today you can opt for passionate tango, energetic rumba, classical foxtrot or sensual bachata. This last is getting more famous among young people.

A large choice of wedding dances and a possibility to get help of professionals who are ready to choreograph a wedding dance converts a classical wedding into a unique show, where every guest is anticipating this sensual performance. There are dances that can be easily performed without special preparation, as well as dances that are difficult to choreograph on one’s own, without the help of a professional choreographer. Here are some of the wedding dances that are at the peak of their popularity and which are difficult to choreograph without professional help:

  • Bachata, a romantically erotic representation of your feelings in a dance;
  • Tango, a passionate and intense expression of the lovers’ emotions;
  • Dance combining elements of several styles that can start with waltz, changed into tango and finally culminated in bachata.

Today, there are enough professional dancers of different styles and varieties. It means that any wedding dance can be choreographed by a professional dancer: it will guarantee that this part of a wedding ceremony will be a memorable experience not only for the newlyweds, but also for the guests. This part of your wedding ceremony is the first thing to consider after taking a decision to get married or after submitting an application to the Civil Registrar.

Popularity of passionate tango as the first dance of the newlyweds came to an end in 2013, handing over to sensual bachata expressing the whole range of feelings experienced by the lovers in the past, in the present and in the future. This dance takes root in the Dominican Republic, where at the sunrise of its history, it expressed emotions associated with unrequited love or a daily struggle of the lovers of the end of the 20th century. Today’s bachata is slightly different, producing a deep impression with its sensuality, expressive emotionalism, and incredible intimacy. Undoubtedly, if you decided that a wedding in the Dominican Republic is a scenario you have been always dreaming about, consider seeking assistance of a professional dancer who can choreograph bachata for your wedding. Such choice will highlight the authenticity and completeness of your wedding celebration. Just imagine that on this unforgettable day, bachata will be the most expressive representation of your feelings to each other, while your guests will admire the mesmerizing performance that will fill you with many pleasant memories and symbolize the beginning of a long and prosperous family life.

Wedding bachata challenges many traditional stereotypes of a modern wedding. To the sound of Dominican guitar, a couple is performing a dance of love in erotic and bold way. All elements contribute to the final impression: special style of clothes, wedding scenario, and location. That is why a wedding ceremony in the Dominican Republic – symbolic or official – will not lack anything if you choose bachata as your first dance of the newlyweds.

Traditional bachata and long puffy wedding dresses do not match: thus, a bride will need to consider alternative wedding garments. A knee-length dress or even shorts make an ideal outfit for bachata dancers – of course if you are not afraid of challenging all traditional wedding standards. However, a bride can also change her traditional long wedding dress to comfortable sexy shorts before the dance, and after that, put on her classical dress again. It is quite common for brides and bridegrooms to change their clothes during modern wedding celebrations.

As professional bachata dancers say, you will not need much time to learn to dance bachata nor much space to perform this romantic dance. The key element of this dancing style is expression of your feelings which are not restricted by any space limitations, are they? Although choreography of bachata is inspired by styles of rumba, salsa, merengue and reggaeton, its movements are easy and accessible. Following the rhythm of 4/4, that is making 4 steps back and forth or 4 steps side to side, bachata dancers almost never make sudden turns, always staying close to each other – such intimacy allows expressing one’s feelings in the most emotional, bright and fascinating way. The main rule of this dance consists in dancing very close to each other. Even when the partners are pulling away from each other, they do it to get closer again in a blast of passion and emotions, tempting each other to touches of their bodies.

Dominican culture is as bright and attractive as its traditional bachata dance. This culture cannot be described with one word or one movement. It is hardly probable that such dancing style could have appeared in some other part of the world, since the Dominican Republic features all the conditions for this romantic dance form: the hot sun and white sand overcoming any hint of sadness, as well as passionate motives of the requinto guitar. If you are an ardent fan of bachata, you do not need to create any special scenario for your wedding ceremony: the bachata dance performed by you and your beloved one will guarantee unforgettable emotions and memories, long-lasting success of your dance in your social networks, and a desire to celebrate this holiday of love again.

To make sure your wedding bachata dance turns out to be a success, it is necessary to choose some music inspiring you and take at least two classes of bachata from a professional dancer in the Dominican Republic or in your country of residence. It may often be challenging to choose a musical theme from urban bachata style – that is its urban interpretation – in this case, you need help of a bachata dancer, for whom this erotic dance has become part of his or her daily life. After choosing a song for your wedding dance, you start learning the main steps of bachata, which are not as varied as the movements of salsa – a closely related dancing style. Just get close to your partner, feel his or her heart beat, and start moving your hips erotically. At the beginning of this exciting experience, such movements may seem extravagant and obscene, but just imagine how you are expressing your feeling through this dance when you are alone, and all people around you will disappear in your imagination during this dance lasting for only 3-4 minutes. This short period will impress not only you but also your guests who may never dare to express their feelings in such a way.

No matter which bachata style you prefer, bachata is a challenge – and primarily to yourself. For most of us, the wedding ceremony happens only once in a life, and on this day, the newlyweds are full of emotions and feelings, which are hard to express with words and even harder with traditional waltz. Do not be afraid of experiments on your wedding day! Do not be afraid of turning your dreams into reality by choosing bachata for your first wedding dance. This way, the Dominican Republic will dance with you wherever you are. If your original weddingis celebrated on Cap Cana beach, the Dominicans will accompany you in your dance. If you are dancing bachata far away from this sunny paradise, a string ensemble will perform its melodies creating around you the atmosphere of a romantic sunrise, enticing seawater and happy family life. Happypeoplewed will help you and may all your dreams come true!

Pirate-Themed Wedding

Love is a breathtaking and inspiring feeling, comparable to an unforgettable adventure. A series of anxiety and agitation, imagining fairy-tale plots and making serious decisions culminate in a mesmerizing wedding ceremony.A good idea for this exciting celebration is a pirate-themed wedding. That will be a real adventure for the newlyweds and their guests, inspired by refreshing marine breeze and a brave sail on board a pirate boat.

Location

As you might have already imagined, the best location for such celebration is a real boat, ship or yacht. You can do without sails, but it is important to decorate a vessel in pirate style. If you are not excited about celebration in the sea, you can organize a ceremony on the beach, in a restaurant, or right near the edge of the sea.

Style

The original pirate-themed wedding is not always a carnival. If you ponder over and thoroughly consider some expressive details, you will be able to create a general thematic atmosphere without excessively bright décor.

Garments of the newlyweds

A bridegroom usually plays a role of the pirate boat captain. He is a noble sea dog and, deep inside, an authentic aristocrat. It is recommended to create an elaborate thematic suit: with a satin doublet with goldcords, a snow-white laced shirt, and jackboots. You can also choose a more classical garment, but add some thematic details, such as a silk belt, a three-cornered hat, and a decorative sword in the waistband.

To organize an original wedding fully in line with the pirate theme, groomsmen should wear pirate-styled garments as well. The groomsmen are a group of noisy, bold and independent seamen. They should wear brightly colored shirts, sailor tops and bandanas. They can also put on big rings on their fingers.

For women, this celebration is an opportunity to dress up in sophisticated costumes of pirate companions. No doubt, women deserve boasting their noble status during this celebration. As for the bride, she should stand out among the noble group of bridesmaids. The pirate-themed wedding ceremonygives her a role of the governor’s daughter kidnapped by the sly but madly in love pirate. The bride will look gorgeous in a puffy long soft-hued dress decorated with a cascade of lace and silk. The dress may be off the shoulder. Another suitable alternative is a light dress of delicate turquoise blue or intensive scarlet fabric.

The bridal look should be complemented with a hairstyle with big curls. Besides, long gloves of the same color range as the dress and jewelry with pearls and corals are a good idea for the bridal image. It is also suitable to include orange flowers in a bridal bouquet. Opt for natural make-up to create an image of innocent bride. Women invited to the wedding should also wear elegant dresses and preferably fans. Do not forget that a wedding in the Dominican Republic or any other country with a hot climate is quite a challenge. A fan is a solution that will help the guests cool down under the hot sun.

To sum it up, the pirate-themed wedding ceremony allows for a wide range of garments. There are no strict rules regarding the dress code and décor of the location. However, it is recommended to use blue, light blue, white and greenish colors.

Décor of the banquet hall

So many details can be used to decorate the pirate-themed wedding! Nevertheless, try to choose decorative elements in moderation and with fashion sense. It is a good idea to apply fishing nets and rigging. You can put them on the walls and railing. Big pieces of fabric will be useful too. It is stylish to select a silk turquoise blue tablecloth. Fabric can also be used to decorate empty walls. For the sake of contrast, choose pieces of thick white fabric that will imitate sails. If you want your wedding ceremony to be more romantic, add scarlet sails to your “boat of love and happiness”.

Do not disregard small details: starfish, seashells and colorful stones… They can be or natural or artificial origin (made of porcelain, glass and other materials). It is also appropriate to use such marine paraphernalia as mini-models of sails, wheels, navigators, paddles, old maps, spyglasses, anchors, bottles of rum, bronze candlesticks and barrels…

If you have a chance to find a real parrot, preferably macaw, for your ceremony, make sure you add the parrot to a list of your invitees. If you do not have a real parrot, choose a toy one. The interior can also be decorated with pirate flags. For gifts, prepare an old big trunk.

An original pirate-themed wedding should feature the same pirate style in all its elements, inspired by the atmosphere of an old tavern, an island or a pirate ship.

Pirate-themed wedding table

Prepare a menu according to your wedding theme. If you celebrate the wedding in open air, treat your guests to barbeque, seafood, fruit and strong drinks (gin, rum). Make sure you serve alcoholic drinks not in traditional glasses but in big pirate-style mugs.

Pirate – themed wedding entertainment

  1. Dice and card games
  2. Search of treasure in teams
  3. Darts
  4. Competition in tying and untying nautical knots
  5. Walking the plank
  6. The best pirate song contest
  7. If you celebrate your wedding in the Dominican Republic, right on the beach, organize a sand castle contest
  8. While the bride usually tosses her bouquet to unmarried bridesmaids, the bridegroom should toss a small fishing net to his unmarried friends to see who will be caught in the net and become a bridegroom soon.
  9. At night, it is romantic to let the paper boats with wishes for the newlyweds and flower wreathes with candles float in water.

Important “pirate” details

  1. It is better to celebrate a pirate-themed wedding in summer or early autumn, when the weather is comfortable for river and sea sails.
  2. Find a master of ceremony who will make your pirate-themed show a success.
  3. Put the invitation notes in bottles and send them to your invitees. Do not forget to tell them about the dress code.

If you decided to organize the pirate-themed wedding, your family life will be breathtaking and full of unforgettable amazing emotions! And Happypeoplewed will help to fulfill this dream.

Weather in the Dominican Republic by months

The Dominican Republic features an unpredictable climate. The sun shining brightly in the morning may turn into a tropical rain in only half an hour, but the sky will become cloudless again by the noon. On the other hand, the temperature remains almost on the same level – about 30 degrees Celsius – throughout the year, which means that the beach season is open all year round here. However, some months may be cooler or hotter, more humid or drier.

We live on the island, and today we will tell you how the Dominican weather changes by months.

By the way, if you are planning to organize a wedding in the Dominican Republic, then I will be happy to help you, contact us!

WEATHER IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC IN JANUARY

 The end of December and the beginning of January are the most popular dates for visiting the Dominican Republic. It is not only because of the New Year holidays that many people want to spend on the beach.

It is also because this time of the year features perfect weather – the sun is shining almost all day long, a warm gentle breeze is felt from the ocean, and the air temperature constantly stays at 27-28oC.

Rains that may fall during this month won’t bother you – tropical rains in January are most often short and very warm.

WEATHER IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC IN FEBRUARY

 The last winter month is the driest in the Dominican Republic. During this month, the average daytime air temperature remains at +26°С – +28°С. The temperature of ocean water also stays at about +26°С.

Although it almost never rains during this month, the sky is rarely cloudless. In the tropical zone, it is almost impossible to see a sky without clouds.

It is considered that the ocean water in February is colder than in any other month, but 26 °С temperature for tourists is not cold at all!
