All about the Grooms

all about grooms (2).jpg

By no means is picking a suit or tuxedo as time consuming as picking out a wedding dress. But needless to say, you still have a lot of options. And we all know, you wanna look your best.

There are so many places to buy a tuxedo of a suit for your big day, so now you have to ask yourself a few questions: Will I wear it again? How Casual should I go, or should it be really formal? Is the cost justified? This is definitely something you can look into as there are always great deals at the fashion districts, tailors, or even online. Check around as you want to start doing this early to get all the right measurements, fabrics, and of course accompanying colors to match your beautiful bride and flowers. Put into consideration the fabric as you’ll want it to breathe. You wanna make sure you’re getting something that you’ll be comfortable wearing for an entire day. Now you need to think about your groomsmen. Do you want them to match? Then they need suits and measurements too.

The best advice we can give you is to follow your instincts. A stylish customized suit can go a long way to looking awesome. But as we all know, a quick and easy suit at the store can still be fashionable, more accessible to out of town groomsmen, and save you some cash. So talk it over with your fiance, your boys, and do some more research for options. And stylish will soon be your middle name.

Best Spots for Destination Wedding

Sometimes, the most non-traditional wedding venues can be the best, especially when the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Wedding full of sunshine, tacos and dancing barefeet in the sand...is there anything better? Making dreamy photographs exchanging vows against the sunset, or being surrounded by palm trees and tropical flower while you are walking down the aisle. Having a relaxed atmosphere for your guests as well as for yourself, and making your wedding day all about happiness, love and the beginning of your new life together. So ditch the stuffy banquet halls and rental spaces, gather some of your closest friends and family and plan the wedding of your destination dreams. And no, we are not talking about having an old naked guy in all your photos, because not all destination weddings take place at all inclusive resorts. Step outside of the box and just check out these eye candy we put together to make your free spirit jump for destination wedding joy.

TOP 10 SPOTS TO FIND YOUR BRIDESMAIDS DRESS

TOP 10 SPOTS TO FIND YOUR BRIDESMAIDS DRESS

Every single bride wants her bridal party to look and feel their very best on her big day. For many
brides, that means thinking choosing bridesmaid dress styles that can flatter a wide variety of body
types and sizes, or pairing complementary styles from designers who carry flattering silhouettes in extended sizes.
With so many bridesmaid dresses to choose from, it may feel challenging to choose a style that
flatters every figure. Sadly, not every designer carries as many extended sizes as we’d like. But
we’re here to help you navigate the ones that do—and help you find styles that will make every
woman feel confident and radiant.
When you’re considering dresses, the trick is to focus on three major features—necklines,
waistlines, and skirt styles. Choosing the right style of each helps bridesmaids highlight their favorite
features, and play down the parts they’d rather not draw attention to. The right waist, skirt, and
neckline can make all the difference. Petite, tall, curvy, or somewhere in between, our
recommendations for where to shop for your perfect bridal party look will be the help you were
hoping for.

Toronto Venues

When a client comes to us for help with planning their events, we just adore having to choose the right venue for their magnificent day. We especially love site visits, when all you see is an empty space, and you let your imagination run wild.

When it comes to choosing a venue for your event, it is really important to keep in mind a few pointers. Make sure it is appropriate size for your event, not too big nor small. A small venue might feel too cramped for you and your guests to roam around. A too large venue might make the space feel too cold and empty, even if it is decorated right. Make sure the space or venue works for your event, consider the lighting, the entrance, the convenience of getting to and naturally the parking for your guests. If your event is in day time, then make sure to notice the natural light in the room. As well as very important to see if the space will work well with the decor you might have in mind. Do not be shy to ask questions and explore as many options as possible, read reviews of previous events and do your research on the venue of your choice.

Here is an insight of few beautiful venues, restaurants and spaces we gathered together for you, hoping to give your conception a brilliant flight of fancy.

Almost every little girl dreams of her perfect wedding, especially of her wedding dress. How she will walk down the aisle with everyone smiling at her, and how she will twirl in her wedding gown during the dance together with her prince. And then suddenly, it is time to make that dream a reality! Your girly ways have changed with time, and you now have to make a choice in selecting THE DRESS. So many textures, designs and colours to choose from, finding the wedding dress of your dreams could be the hardest or the easiest decision you have ever made. 

You might be the bride who wants to break tradition and celebrate unabashedly your magnificent self. Or you might be an all-around wholesome and conservative bride who is considering looking more like Grace Kelly on her wedding day. Whatever your dreams and desires might be, when it comes to your wedding dress you will be a ravishing and exquisite bride. 

When trying on dresses, do the research beforehand, figure out the styles that you like or might want to see on yourself. If you are having a hard time figuring it out, then try stepping outside of the box and put on a dress that you perhaps have not even considered, you might be pleasantly surprised. Do what feels right to you, after all this should be about you and your big and exciting day. 

 In case you are lost in a white sea of wedding dresses, here are some suggestions and our favourite designers for you to explore and hopefully give you some stress- free wedding gown solutions.

You’re Engaged, now what??

You will hear: “You have so much time to plan a wedding, just enjoy being engaged” so

many times you’ll lose count. But in reality, there are many things to plan and think

about. After the butterflies have settled, you’ve called your parents and you have

showed off your wedding ring selfie on all social media... now you actually have to get

on board and kick start planning your big day! Venue, flowers, date, photographers,

guests, invitations, and oh yeah, how can we forget THE DRESS! There is just so

much that needs to be addressed before you say, “I DO”! And all of this needs to

happen in a timely manner with both parties being in agreement! It’s no wonder some

couples elope, it’s just so much pressure!

 

We would like to say just take a deep breath, it can all be done right and as stress free

as possible. We as Professional Wedding Planners know exactly the easiest way to get

everything done properly! This will truly allow you to enjoy your just “being engaged”

time, in a peaceful and joyful manner. To begin to elevate the stress, we have decided

to share month-by-month lists of what to start doing after you say “YES”!
