Wedding abroad. Hearts Winning Countries

Year by year, more couples have a desire to celebrate the most important event in their life abroad. Now many countries offer a huge range of services for organizing and holding a wedding celebration. To choose the very place where the wedding will take place, the bride and groom have to decide which country will be ideal for sealing the union by the marriage bond.

Most often, when the future husband and wife discuss about holding the marriage ceremony, they reject the possibility to organize the wedding in another country because of the seemingly high cash costs.

However, this is more a stereotype, and few people know that your wedding can now be organized in different countries of the world, and this does not mean at all that you have to pay fabulous sums for it. You can organize a charming celebration abroad at an affordable price.

Remember that if you want official registration of your overseas marriage, your couple should prepare all the necessary documents. To reduce the budget for the wedding, you can arrange a symbolic ceremony. In this case, the documents are not necessary, as this is more a colorful performance than an official celebration, which means that you do not need to pay for an official marriage certificate, translation of necessary documents, as well as for services of an interpreter and a marriage registrar in the country that you’ve chosen.

The wedding industry is gaining popularity, moreover, many countries specialize in holding weddings and are great for both the wedding itself and the following honeymoon. Now there is a huge number of countries where you can go and fulfil the dreams of a fabulous romantic ceremony.

To make a choice, you need to understand what characterizes weddings in different countries of the world, what features and traditions that are close to your heart can be met and brought to your celebration.

 Wedding traditions from around the world

  • In Italy, for example, it is customary that the image of the bride, despite the beauty and luxury of the dress, will be incomplete without a veil on her face, which is considered a symbol of purity and virginity and is believed to protect against evil spirits. After the wedding ceremony, which is traditionally held in the church, the bride and groom break a vase. The number of fragments into which it has broken, symbolizes the number of years they will live together.

The traditions of eastern countries differ from what we call the traditional wedding, but thatdoesn’t make them less interesting.

  • For example, Chinese bridal dresses are different from the classic world-wide-accepted white dresses. They are bright red with gold embroidery. In the morning before the wedding, the groom redeems the bride, and then joins her parents for a tea ceremony. At the wedding, instead of usual dances, you will see a kind of performance in which performers dressed in cat costumes sway to the sound of drums, scaring off evil spirits from the bride and groom.
  • The traditions of India also are unusual for us. The bride in India is also wearing a red sari with white and gold details, and her hands are painted with henna patterns. An integral part of the ceremony is the exchange of oaths. Pronouncing them, the bride and groom must pass 3 circles, holding the sacred fire. After the ceremony, the groom gives the bride a silver ring, and the newlyweds exchange flower garlands as a sign of their eternal love.

Some couples choose Europe for their special day. And, indeed, it fascinates with its beauty, architecture and spirit of the past. You immerse yourself in the atmosphere of medieval romance, going to sunny Italy, filled with love France, rich in traditions Greece, quiet Cyprus and many others.

However, you should remember that planning a celebration in Europe, you can not be sure that you will be met by great weather, and the cost of the celebration may be muchhigher than you’ve expected.

If you dream of a chic ceremony, like from the covers of a magazine, then there is no more ideal place for the birth of your family than the fascinating tropical islands. For example, a wedding in the charming Dominican Republic with its beauty on the coast of the ocean or the Caribbean Sea can become the most exciting event in your life.

The country also has its own wedding traditions. One of the most beautiful is the sand ceremony. Its essence lies in the fact that the bride and groom have two vessels on the table, prepared in advance, with sand of different colors.At a certain moment, the newlyweds simultaneously fill the sand into one common vessel.

This ritual symbolizes the unit of two destinies and hearts. The common vessel in which the sand is mixed in a fancy pattern, you will take with you, as a memento.

In short, to hold a wedding in exotic countries is a perfect choice for a new round of your love story. Moreover, the undoubted advantages of the symbolic ceremony on the islands are:

  • Exotic landscapes (snow-white sandy beaches, palm trees, azure clear waves of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, unforgettable sunsets) just for the two of you;
  • You can combine your wedding ceremony and honeymoon;
  • You can hold the wedding at any time of the year;
  • Great weather guaranteed;
  • Sophisticated wedding photos;

A wedding abroad is not a luxury, but a fairy tale that can become a reality and unforgettable moments will remain in your memory forever, and choosing the country for the ceremony is the first step towards your family happiness.

Bridal bouquet – the key to the unique image

Wedding is the most anticipated and bright event in a couple’s life. It slips away in one day, but it requires preparation, which may last for a year!

Just 20 years ago, all the weddings were similar to one another, dresses for brides were not very diverse, and nobody even thought about accessories. The situation is quite different when preparing modern weddings. The number of wedding dresses and their styles is so huge that any – even the most demanding bride can find the proper one for her. A place for a wedding is also not limited to a cafe or a restaurant, and accessories, details and floristics occupy almost the main place in the celebration, because they emphasize the main idea of ​​the wedding day.

One of such details, which had not been previously paid due attention, and now not a single bride considers her image to be completed without it, is the wedding bridal bouquet. It is the thing which helps the bride to express herself and create a gentle romantic or, on the contrary, an unusual audacious image!

To make the image turn out exactly as the bride represents it in her dreams, she must decide which bridal bouquet she wants: delicate or bright and exotic.

Despite the celebration concept​​ and preferences in colors, a wedding bouquet made of fresh flowers is a consistent trend. Most often, preference is given to wedding bouquets of roses or peonies. These flowers remain for quite a long time as if they have been just cut off even in hot and humid island climate, and also look great in the photos. If you want your celebration to be filled with exotics, and photos with the atmosphere of the islands of the Atlantic Ocean, then you should choose a bouquet made of flowers that grow only on the islands and will add bright colors to your celebration.

Flower values

  • tulips – passion;
  • lilac – tenderness and quivering feelings;
  • lily – beauty;
  • lily of the valley – luck and happiness;
  • carnation – perseverance and commitment;
  • rose – mysteries and secrets.

The symbolism of colors

  • red – passion, flame, love, energy;
  • orange – good mood and warmth;
  • green – purity, tranquility, harmony;
  • pink – carelessness, lightness, fun;
  • blue – loyalty;
  • yellow – joy, brightness, warmth;
  • white – simplicity, purity, well.

White bridal bouquet

This is perhaps the most popular option, because the white bouquet symbolizes the beauty and the purity of the bride as well as the purity of the relationship of the couple entering into marriage. Moreover, white is the color that is ideal for almost any wedding dress. The traditional option – roses of different sizes, which can be in perfect harmony with these flowers in the bride’s hair. Indeed, a royal version is the lily, which will not leave anyone indifferent. Callas will be perfect for those who have a sophisticated taste. They perfectly match the dress of a slender silhouette or a light and even careless bridal image. If you are preparing a wedding in the spring or in a rustic or boho style, lilies of the valley would be an excellent option. They look light and airy, and by adding them with ribbon or string due to your wedding style, you will get a unique bouquet that best complements you.

Red bridal bouquet

Red is not just the color of love and passion. Not every bride dares to choose it for her image. To create a red bouquet, roses are most often chosen, they are truly royal flowers. You can also use gerberas. Despite its fairly simple appearance, they look bright in the photos. Tulips (especially closed buds) are perfect for a young bride. Of course, we cannot ignore the peonies, which look rich and symbolize good luck. Callas look unusual and exotic, and even red callas will not leave indifferent any of the guests!

However, mono-bouquets, which are made of one type of flowers and one color, do not suit everyone, so even a red bouquet can be diluted with small white flowers, which will become the backdrop for the primary colors, and the contrast will make the red bouquet even brighter.

Blue bridal bouquet

Blue, on the one hand, is the color of mysteries and secrets, and on the other hand, it is the color of devotion, loyalty and faithful love. To create a bouquet in blue colors, you can use roses – it looks elegant, and if you add more simple and small pastel-coloured flowers or even add berries and twigs, it will be unusual for brides with fantasy.

The undoubted front-runner when choosing flowers in blue is hydrangea. Its advantages are longevity, the absence of a strong smell, the ability to buy a plant from June to October, as well as the refinement of the bouquet, which after all will suit better young brides. Orchids are one of the symbols of the Dominican Republic, which means that a rare holiday goes without them. Orchids are a symbol of happiness and family wealth. A bride who chooses these flowers for her bouquet pretends to be unique and unusual.

Pink bridal bouquet

This is a classic color to create an image of a gentle and dreamy bride. Varying flowers in a bouquet, you can make it naively romantic or regal and rich. In this case, the most popular choice are roses, thanks to which you can create an elegant and at the same time majestic bridal bouquet. An excellent alternative to roses are peonies. A bouquet of peonies looks massive and fine, and if you combine flowers of different shades of color and sizes in the composition, you will get a stylish option for a modern bride.

Therefore, the bridal bouquet only seems to be a simple accessory, but in fact, its choosing requires a thoughtful approach from the bride, because the bouquet, besides the bride and groom, will take centre stage in your wedding photos.

However, in some countries, such as China, Thailand, Egypt or the United Arab Emirates, only a beautiful symbolic ceremony can be held.

Now Czech Republic, Cyprus, Cuba and Italy are popular destinations for this purpose, but the leaders among future newlyweds preferences are tropical islands, such as Seychelles, Maldives and Dominican Republic.

Of course, you can always use the help of the wedding agencies that help to save time and nerves and give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the process of preparing for the celebration, without thinking about whether all the documents are ready on time.

The cost of a wedding abroad

As for the cost of the wedding, the ceremony itself and the preparation can cost a relatively small amount of money. When organizing a wedding abroad, you need to take into account the following:

  • Organization of the wedding ceremony.
  • Rent a place for marriage.
  • Providing decor for the ceremony and a Banquet hall.
  • Rent a car.
  • Music, champagne and fruit, bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonniere.
  • Wedding coordinator services.
  • Interpreter services.
  • Hotel booking.

Those couples, who decide to hold an official marriage registration ceremony, need to take into account the following nuances:

  • Documents for marriage (actually you need them only in case of the official marriage registration) .
  • Translation of documents.
  • Payment of state duties and fees.
  • Payment of marriage registration certificate and its Russian-language copy (if you choose the official registration of marriage abroad).
  • Marriage ceremony + services of a judge who conducts the marriage.

Most often, when a couple in love raises the question of where to hold the wedding ceremony, the option of the wedding abroad is rejected because of the seemingly high cost. However, a wedding abroad does not always require large sum of money, so it is possible to organize enchanting celebrations abroad and at a reasonable price. Now there are a huge number of options for countries where you can go and embody the dream of a fabulous romantic ceremony. For example, some couples choose Europe for their special day. And, indeed, it fascinates with its beauty, architecture and spirit of the past. However, it should be remembered that when planning a celebration in Europe, you cannot be sure that you will meet great weather, and the cost of the celebration can be many times more than you have expected.

If you dream of a chic ceremony as if from the covers of magazines – then there is no better place for the birth of your family than the fascinating tropical islands. For example, a wedding in the enchanting beauty of the Dominican Republic on the coast of the ocean or the Caribbean sea can get magically fabulous. It is unusual, exotic and will surely leave bright memories in your life. The organization of the wedding ceremony varies depending on the preferences of your couple and starts from $ 600.

  • Arch, decorations, table decoration, bridal bouquet and wedding style boutonniere for the groom to choose from our catalog;

All this should be calculated additionally depending on your preferences and the number of invited guests.

Symbolic wedding abroad

Despite the fact that a symbolic wedding is not an official marriage registration, it does not diminish the magic of what is happening – it is a romantic fairy tale that has become a reality only for your couple. The most important thing about symbolic ceremony is that you will not need to solve any paper issues related to the documents. During the ceremony, you will need to sign the marriage certificate, but this is a formality, and the certificate itself has no legal force neither in your home country, nor in the country of marriage. This is a beautiful and touching theatrical production, the scenery of which are fascinating landscapes, in front of which you will utter emotional vows of your love and fidelity.

Legendary day. What wedding style to choose?

How organize a wedding? What Registry office to choose? In what restaurant celebrate the occasion? What is the first point to start? – these are the questions faced by the future newlyweds, preparing for the most important and magical day in their lives. If you are among them, and if you have already started to ponder over these questions – this short digest of fashionable wedding styles is for you!

Classical style

When you say the word “wedding”, almost everybody automatically imagine the bride in a magnificent white wedding gown, the groom in an elegant suit and the tiered wedding cake. All these are the essential elements of a wedding in a classical style. That is the very wedding that every girl dreams of from her early childhood. A classical wedding is chosen by the newlyweds who want to hold a luxurious and at the same time exquisite celebration. This style implies consistency in all details and decor elements.

The features of the classical style are:

  • Sophistication and elegance;
  • To use of pastel colours (cream, pearl, champagne +gold/ silver);
  • To exclude bright, eye-catching details;
  • Floral compositions;
  • Seating Cards for guests;
  • Dress code for guests, especially for bridesmaids (dresses of the same color or even the same style);
  • The use of textiles to decorate tables, chairs and wall draperies.

The classical style implies the bride’s and groom’s gowns to be moderate and decent.

  • The bride should not refuse a magnificent dress, a train or a veil – let it be to feel like a real Princess or even a Queen. The bride’s dress for the wedding should be made of expensive materials, such as satin or silk. It can be straight, fitted or lush cut, but always long down to the floor. It is recommended to choose an outfit with a train.
  • A handbag and shoes should be matched to the outfit. Give preference to classic shoes with a thin heel and a closed nose.
  • The hairstyle should be like a Royal high hairstyle, an elegant smooth beam or romantic flowing curls.
  • A bride should give preference to natural makeup with an emphasis on the eyes and choose discreet jewellery or expensive bijouterie.
  • The groom’s image should be in one style with the bride’s one. A tailcoat, a tuxedo or a three-piece suit (with vests) will be appropriate for this occasion. As for the color, in addition to black and white for a classical wedding, you can choose dark blue or grey suits and pink or blue shirts. To complete the classical image choose a tie or a bow tie.

Decor. While decorating a Banquet hall in a classical style, it is necessary to refuse usage of excessively massive and bright details. The decoration of the hall should be simple but elegant. Guests for such an event are seated at separate tables, which are covered with beautiful tablecloths, the color of which should coincide with the main colour of the ceremony. On the tables, vases with fresh flowers are placed. A mandatory element of the wedding is the personalized boarding cards for guests.

The table where the newlyweds are seated should stand out from the crowd. It is decorated with fabric draperies, floral arrangements, candles in glasses, porcelain figurines, garlands with bulbs.

For a classic wedding, it is customary to prepare multi-tiered cakes. They are fabulous  in photos and videos and amaze your guests with their beauty.

Eco- styles

Now fewer and fewer couples choose a traditional black-and-white wedding; most prefer to dilute the classical colors of fashion trends and to arrange a wedding in a certain color, in the style of a country or an era, or even based on couple’s favorite books and movies.

Eco-styles have recently become on of the most favourite. They include country, boho and Provence, because they tend to “naturalness” in everything from the image of the newlyweds to the wedding decor. This is a great option for extraordinary couples who want to hold the celebration for which nature is the main decoration, and the bride is a forest nymph.

Features of eco-styles are:

  • Natural material;
  • Field flowers;
  • Wood, moss, burlap;
  • Outdoor wedding;
  • Classical colors: white, cream, brown, green, blue and blue;
  • Natural pastel colors: cornflower blue, sky, sand.

Since the main emphasis of such weddings is on the naturalness and natural beauty, special attention should be paid to the wedding venue. The ideal platform for you will be a natural landscape: field, forest glade or thicket. An excellent solution is to use trees draped with natural fabrics and garlands instead of classic arches; the cart or haystack will look original. Remember that simplicity and naturalness are important for the selected styles, so it will not be easy to achieve this effect in luxury restaurants.

The bride’s and groom’s images differ from the traditional ones: the bride’s dress should be light and airy. You can also choose a sundress made of natural fabric. The hairstyle should be braids, curls or loose hair. The complement to the image can be a wreath of field flowers, which will be combined with the bride’s bouquet. For the image of the groom, you can use unusual accessories, such as suspenders, a vest, a straw hat and moccasins.

Boho style

Boho wedding style or Bohemian chic “connects the unconnected”. The main task of the style is to combine the images of different eras and cultures, to emphasize the closeness to nature. Boho is a rather unusual style, which is characterized by both notes of vintage, folk elements, features of country style, as well as notes of freedom-loving image of hippies.

Features of boho style are:

  • The use of natural flowers;
  • Combination of bright and calm tones and colours;
  • The use of a large number of accessories from different styles, including handmade jewellery, knitted and wicker items;
  • The use of different textures, abundance of draperies;
  • The use of simple, vintage things, old furniture, combining different style items.

In boho style, much attention is paid to details and accessories. Floristry implies that the wedding tables should be decorated with non-standard flower bouquets, for which the best solution will be dried flowers, wildflowers, herbs, twigs and even bird feathers. Original look of the floral composition could be achieved if plants are covered with gold or silver paint.

Do not forget about another important element of the decor – the lighting, which should support the mood of the wedding, make it unusual and romantic. To illuminate the wedding in the evening, you can use candles, kerosene and oil lamps and antique lights.

Provence Style

Features of the Provence style are:

  • Natural materials;
  • Muted colors;
  • Lots of air and light;
  • Aristocratic simplicity and naturalness;
  • Plenty of vintage items;
  • Fresh smell of lavender;
  • Wrought-iron or wicker furniture;
  • French cuisine.

In the decor, in details, the preference is given to the use of lilac colour and real lavender twigs.

For a wedding in the Provence style the menu of famous French cuisine is unsurpassed. To support the overall style of the celebration the following items will help:

  • red, pink, white French wines,
  • gourmet cuisine with creamy cheeses,
  • Provence spices,
  • olives,
  • truffles,
  • grape snails,
  • baked vegetables,
  • garlic mayonnaise with fresh homemade baguette.

For desserts the following items can be presented:

  • cupcakes,
  • fruits,
  • berries,
  • honey,
  • exquisite cookies “macaroni”.

Wedding cake will match the Provencal style if in its decoration purple glaze or lavender twigs are also used.

The bride in this style should be elegant, romantic and as well as in the above styles, natural, which means that the preference should be given to the dresses of simple silhouette with a simple decor, for example, lace of light, delicate, translucent fabric. The outfit can be traditionally white, complemented by lilac accessories, and any delicate pastel natural shades. The elegance of the bride is emphasized with:

  • light veil,
  • lace gloves,
  • shawl,
  • guipure umbrella,
  • light sandals / elegant shoes with a small heel.
  • Accent in the bride’s image should be put on the decorations. You can use stylized antique hairpins, beads, pearls, brooches, pendants. You should not perform too complicated hairstyle.
  • Loose hair, braids with flowers and ribbons, large curls will match the overall simplicity of this style.
  • Make-up should also be natural.

For the groom’s image it is better to choose:

  • simple suit made of natural fabrics of calm muted shades,
  • the tie can be replaced with a lilac or purple neckerchief,
  • to complete the look, you can use braces,
  • belts,
  • hats,
  • as a boutonniere you can use several twigs of lavender, tied with satin ribbon.

Marine style

Another concept that is gaining popularity nowadays is the marine style.

Features of the marine style are:

  • Main colors: white, red, all shades of blue and turquoise, grey, green;
  • The basic pattern for this holiday is stripes;
  • Place of celebration: beach by the sea, shipboard, restaurant on the water;
  • The rings are made of pearls, transparent stones, white metal;
  • The presence of different kinds of Marine items: anchors, steering wheels, flags, boats, shells, fish.

It is easy to guess that the decor for a marine wedding is usually done in blue and dark blue colors. Use elements such as:

  • nodes,
  • anchors,
  • various fish,
  • marine animals and plants,
  • gulls,
  • lighthouses,
  • seashells,

As a rule, a ceremony on the beach is chosen as a venue for the celebration. Moreover, a very beautiful ceremony can be arranged on the banks of the river or lake, on the pier overlooking the bay. Sun rays, azure waves, sand, light breeze – these are the best components for your thematic ceremony.

As for the party most of the future newlyweds select a place near the water, so the bride’s and groom’s outfits should be simple and convenient. No puffy dresses and tuxedos, preference is given to light dresses free cut for the bride and a light shirt with trousers for the groom. Accessories selected in marine colors and style will look great, for example, the bride can try on a necklace or bracelet with shells, and the groom –pale blue tie with a print of anchors and cufflinks in the form of steering wheels.

To emphasize the style of your wedding, you can choose the color of the sea wave, blue, turquoise for bridesmaids’ dresses and shirts of friends of the groom. For the “marine” bouquet of the bride, a perfect decision is shells and pebbles, decorated with rope, blue ribbons and various decorative elements in the form of anchors and other marine attributes. In addition, the “ship” theme can be supported by seating cards on the tables in the form of ships, ropes or twine, which can also decorate the chairs and tablecloths that are in the color of the ceremony with marine prints; the wedding cake and candy bar can also be decorated with corals, starfish, and the biscuit can be made in an unconventional blue color.

Tropical style

Close to the previous style is the tropical style. Yes, what you have heard is right: the style of hot tropical islands with picturesque scenery and bright colors for your wedding without leaving the country!

Features of tropical style are:

  • bright, rich colors in the color palette;
  • abundance of exotic flowers and greenery, tropical fruits, floral ornaments in the decor;
  • light summer outfits for the bride and groom;
  • the use of wicker interior elements and stylized bar with soft drinks.

The image of the newlyweds. The bride should choose a wedding dress of a straight, free cut with open shoulders style, you can even choose a short dress, like a sundress. Shoes should be open and without heels, as an option – elegant sandals. As a wedding hairstyle, you can choose both loose curls and hairstyle with gathered hair, complemented by exotic flowers or a delicate wreath.

The groom can wear a white or bright shirt with loose-fitting trousers or even shorts. More “strict” option is a suit of bright colors. The main emphasis of the male image should be a boutonniere of bright exotic flowers and plants. To support the theme of the wedding bridesmaids can also choose their outfits in tropical style.

Venue. For this style, the classical restaurant is not the most suitable option; it is better to give preference to a beautiful lawn, beach or you can hold a celebration in an outdoor restaurant or tent by the water or pool.

Decor. To create an exotic wedding interior, use:

  • Tropical greenery such as palm leaves;
  • Exotic flowers: orchids, callas, etc.;
  • Tropical fruits: pineapples, coconuts, oranges;
  • Fabric of bright colors and print;
  • Wicker products: furniture, fruit baskets, flower vases.

For an outdoor registration the best solution is an arch, decorated with bright flowers, herbs or even fruits, such as pineapples or coconuts. In the decoration of wedding tables, use not only flowers and herbs, but also palm leaves, shells, starfish, as well as exotic fruits of bright colors: pineapples, oranges, lemons, etc., and tablecloths can be chosen not in the traditional style but in bright colors and even with herbal exotic prints.

The bride’s bouquet can embody all your bold fantasies: it can combine flowers of different types and shades. Moreover, the theme of exotic tropics can be emphasized by adding fruit to the bouquet!

The atmosphere of the tropics can be supported by organizing a lounge area with umbrellas, sun loungers and a bar with refreshing cocktails, where your family and friends can relax from the noisy celebration and chat with each other.

For desserts you can choose both traditional cake and a La carte desserts and even ice cream!

Tiffany style

For couples who want to create an elegant and exquisite celebration, the wedding in the romantic style of Tiffany is the best solution.

Features of the wedding in Tiffany style are:

  • Combination of elegance, luxury and minimalism;
  • Main color is turquoise Tiffany blue;
  • Use of rhinestones, crystals, crystal in decoration;
  • Snow-white textiles;
  • Flowers of delicate shades;
  • The spirit of retro.

Wedding in Tiffany style is suitable for couples that are the fans of retro style, as a decoration you can use vinyl records, patifon, paintings done in the style of the 60s, and for lovers of luxury, because the color is associated with Tiffany expensive jewellery. It is better to arrange the wedding in a large spacious restaurant with high ceilings. The undoubted advantage will be mirrors in beautiful frames, crystal chandeliers, exquisite furniture and stucco on the walls and ceiling (for lovers of retro walls can be decorated with black and white photos of the newlyweds).

For the decoration of the hall, first of all, it is necessary to adhere to the main color. Tablecloths would be elegant both in a classical white and turquoise colours. Decorating the tables, it is important to remember that the dishes should be silver or crystal, and on the tables should be exquisite floral arrangements, champagne and chocolate. Ribbons, balloons, fresh flowers of the appropriate colors would be a perfect decoration. Of course, Tiffany blue should be the colour to dominate on the celebration, but it can be supplemented and diluted with milky white, chocolate, white and creamy pink tones.

Cake takes a central place on the celebration. It can be made in the colors of the wedding, black and white or you can follow the latest trends and prefer cute cupcakes to traditional cake. You can make them, for example, in the form of boxes for jewellery company Tiffany & Co.

To emphasize the style of the wedding in the bride’s and groom’s images, we advise the bride to choose a classical white dress, but to supplement belt, bow or frills in turquoise colour. More “courageous” is to give preference to a dress of a straight silhouette of turquoise colour. Long satin gloves, a hat with a veil, an elegant handbag will perfectly suit the dress of any style.

There can be several options for wedding hairstyles: the hairstyle “Babette”, high bun, or a hair dress in a retro style. As decorations for hairstyles hair clips with large rhinestones, bright ribbons, tiara can be chosen. Pearl necklace will help to emphasize the overall style of the image.

Makeup should also match the chosen style. To give the bride expressiveness will help classic black eyeliners and a soft pink lipstick (remember the heroine of Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”).

The bride’s bouquet can be made of white flowers (for example, orchids), which can be supplemented with small flowers and ribbons in tone, or from pastel colors.

For the groom, a classical suit of black or grey colour, complemented by a turquoise tie, bow tie or necktie, will be a suitable decision.

Remember: chic and beauty in details, so pay attention to them: choose shoes of the same colour as the dress – that will be flirtatious; do not forget the boutonniere in the same style and colours as the bride’s bouquet, which will give charm to your couple.

Gatsby style

Another style for lovers of literature, cinema and time travel is the wedding in Gatsby style. What’s it? It’s a 20s American Style. It’s jazz. It’s gorgeous outfits. It’s amazing parties. It’s chic, luxury and glamour! And for a couple in love it is exquisite, subtle, sublime feelings. At this wedding, you need to take into account all the details.

Features of the Gatsby style are:

  • Main colors: black and gold;
  • Clothing and accessories of America 20-ies;
  • Feathers, fringe, sequins, crystals, beads;
  • Lace, pearl;
  • Slides and fountains with champagne.

The bride and groom in Gatsby style are a chic couple who knows a lot about fashion. A tuxedo and a bow tie, suspenders and hat and patent-leather boots will make the groom a true gentleman. And the bride should not be afraid to exaggerate her image with sequins and beads – all this is welcome on the dress and accessories.

Stylings with waves and curls will take you into the era of the 20s. Veil can be replaced with recognizable jewellery for hairstyles.

Bride’s makeup should be bright, with an emphasis on the eyes (bold eyeliners or smoky eyes) or lips (juicy and bright colors lipstick), or you can select both – this style has its own rules!

In the bride’s bouquet you can express all your wildest and most daring fantasies: it can be fabric flowers, feathers, vintage brooches, and it can be tied with a string of pearl beads, flowing down the bride’s hand.

Of course, do not forget about the dress code for guests, otherwise your wedding will be incomplete. Fill the celebration with the luxury of a Bohemian party. For ladies, shiny or bright cocktail and evening dresses are suitable, complemented by noticeable decorations, fur boas and boas made of feathers, and for gentlemen suits with stylish men’s accessories are appropriate. In the decor you can also buy a lot: flowers, feathers, beads, pearls, a lot of gold and glitter.

Greek style

Those who want to combine a wedding abroad at the seaside and in a hometown, will like a wedding in the Greek style.

Features of the wedding in the Greek style are:

  • Color scheme: combination of white with blue and elements of yellow and olive;
  • Using a lot of fabric in the decor;
  • The use of stylized Greek ornaments, such as columns;
  • The use of olive branches in the decoration.

The very first thing that comes to mind thinking of a Greek wedding is flowing Greek dresses. Girls immediately imagine themselves on the beach, walking in sandals or barefoot, and their heads are decorated with wreaths of olive branches. But is it enough to organize a Greek wedding?

For the bride’s dress in the Greek style the best choice is dresses of straight silhouette, high waist, corset or bodice with thin straps, chiffon, flowing skirt and a lot of gold and silver jewellery and embroidery. The style of the wedding implies that the veil should be replaced with decoration, for example, a wreath of living laurel or stylized to laurel gold tiara.

As for for the groom’s outfit, for a wedding white suit is perfect for the ceremony on the beach; for a more classical ceremony, he can wear a classical black suit. It will also look good, and go well with the style of the wedding.

An important point is the decor of the wedding. First of all, you should take into account the basic colors of Greece: white and blue. In addition, the wedding hall should be given airiness, which means that it is desirable to use a lot of fabric in the decor: light flowing chiffon will turn your wedding hall into a light sailboat on the sea! If to add more flowers (it is advisable to order floral arrangements in tall vases), you get a real, elegant, Grecian wedding hall. For the wedding ceremony in the open air, you can decorate the area with fake columns in the style of Greek architecture.

The bride’s bouquet should traditionally include red or white roses, white callas, or other flowers in traditional colors – beige, gold, red. Once again, the true Greek accent is olive branches. They can be used in the decor of the whole hall, and in the details.

Loft style

Finally, let’s say about one of the trends of recent years – a wedding in loft style – for young, daring, creative couples who are not afraid of experiments. Wedding in loft style is a great solution for those who hate banality! In addition, if your wedding is not planned for the summer and there is no possibility to register in the open air, it does not mean that your event will be boring and ordinary. A great option is a celebration in the loft (usually abandoned factories and factories that are now being restored), which combines bohemian elements and urban-chic details, and it is ideal as for a wedding ceremony than for a banquet.

Features of the loft style are:

  • Wedding in a large space with high ceilings, brick or concrete walls with huge windows or even without them;
  • Combination of simplicity and functionality;
  • The use of “natural” materials and simple fabrics (linen, wool); for guests you can choose rough tables in industrial style with metal legs, and instead of chairs-wooden boxes, barrels, iron stools;
  • The use of monochrome and muted warm colours (usually supported by the basic design of untreated brick);
  • Using garlands with small light bulbs, candelabra, chandeliers, floor lamps for lighting design;
  • The presence of parts in the retro style, for example, a fireplace, a chest of drawers or antique vases, which bring a special mood;
  • Thematic photo-zones with unusual elements (graffiti);
  • The use of fresh flowers and greenery, giving a special charm and revitalizing laconic space.

The bride’s image in the loft style does not imply a magnificent dress in the Princess’ style.  The style of the dress should be simple, neat, but the dress should have its own flavor: creative cut, lace inserts, embroidery. In addition, ladies who want to show their originality, can wear a denim shirt or even a leather jacket. The outfit should be supplemented with large accessories, including a necklace, earrings or rings.

When creating an image, you should remember the phrase “Bohemian chic”: hair should be gathered in a smooth bun, make smooth curls or choose a La Bohemian chic styling.

The bouquet should be as unpredictable as the celebration itself: as a rule, it contains metal parts, wildflowers. The main thing is brightness, originality.

The main colors of the loft-style wedding are green and burgundy, so the groom can choose a suit of this color scheme. Burgundy jacket, light shirt, jeans are a great choice for loft style. Wedding of this style is the personification of freedom, a combination of old and modern, that’s why a strict tuxedo will look ridiculous at such a celebration.

Wedding on the Islands – let the World wait!

Wedding on the Islands – let the World wait!

You and your beloved are the perfect couple, an example for all friends and acquaintances, and one day you have decided to become a family. At first glance, it may seem to be the logical outcome of your relationship, but actually… it’s the beginning. And we are not talking about “a long river called Life, in which your ship called Family will float” (the most popular metaphor in Registry offices in Russia), but about the planning of the wedding. The stage of the wedding preparation isn’t less important than the celebration itself, and the bride and groom spend a lot of time and effort to make their wedding perfect. Immediately after the proposal, the future newlyweds face a number of questions: how many guests will be at the wedding? Who they want to invite? Where to find and order everything you need?

However, all these questions are not important if you do not answer the main one: WHERE should this magic day be held? Of course, you can follow the traditions and after “buying” the bride and drinking champagne from her shoes you can spend the whole day with numerous (often unfamiliar) relatives in a cafe, where you will be already waited by a toastmaster who is always ready to offer wedding contests. Today, however, more and more couples prefer a quiet wedding ceremony, a romantic fairy tale for just for two of you, emotions that will stay with you for the whole life. If you and your beloved want to start a family life as in the perfect photo in Instagram, you can’t think of anything better than a wedding on the islands. It is unusual, exotic and will certainly mark the beginning of your family life with bright emotions. If your couple dreams of a fairy tale where you will become the main characters, if you want to wake up in the morning and breathe the smell of the ocean, if you want to run barefoot, holding hands along a white-sand beach, if you want to tell each other the cherished “Yes” with the waves sounds and fall asleep, looking at the beautiful sunset outside the window – then a wedding on the islands is the perfect choice for a new step of your love story.

One of the favorite destinations in recent years is the Islands of the Caribbean sea and particularly the Dominican Republic. One of the main advantages of a wedding in the Dominican Republic is that you can choose any day of the year without pondering when the weather will be suitable.  In the Caribbean Islands, the ideal time for a wedding is spring.

  • The possibility of a wedding on any day of the year;
  • Guarantee of a great weather;

This may be due to the fact that fewer guests will come to your ceremony in the Dominican Republic, so you will have to spend less on food and other things. Moreover, many hotels also offer discount for weddings and honeymoons).

It should be noted that, preparing for the ceremony, you should take into account some nuances, so that not to face with unwanted surprises:

  • Hot weather above 30 degrees will not allow brides to feel comfortable in lush heavy dresses, so choose light outfits, sundresses and pareos;
