A Cinderella Fairytale Wedding

Every bride to be starts with an inspiration or thought as to how their wedding can be not only beautiful, but unique. Inspiration may be found in day to day activities, magazines, hobbies, or even romance novels or fairtales.

To help out brides along, we’ll be publishing great wedding ceremony and wedding reception ideas to help inspire you to create the wedding of your dreams – whether you just needed a few new tips or find yourself loving one of our complete wedding themes and just need to make it yours.

One of our all time favorites is the Cinderella Fairytale Wedding. Read on to see how one bride made her fairytale come true.

A Cinderella Fairytale Wedding

A pure white dress, flowing down to the floor, a train of endless length following gracefully behind, the veil placed strategically under a crown fit for a queen. This is our Princess, and this is her fairytale wedding.

Just imagine walking into a ballroom draped in exquisite gold fabrics and a red carpet leading down to two thrones in the middle. Gold and silver chairs on both sides of the long red carpet. The carpet comes to an end at three steps leading up to a platform of gold and white, two tall thrones, decorated in jewels and dark colored cushions, sitting side-by-side, the prince standing before the left throne. A grand organ in the back right corner of the ballroom plays the wedding theme as the princess makes her way down the carpet, her long train following behind.

She is wearing a flowing gown, a long veil, a gold crown on top of the veil. She is simple, yet elegant, with a gold necklace around her neck, decorated with a charm, or maybe she prefers a stunning Victorian inspired pearl necklace set. The dress is white, maybe with a gold trim, white strapped heels decorate her feet. A gorgeous bouquet of white roses (bridal white signifies happy love), a small gold ribbon keeps these roses bundled together.

The bridesmaids to the right are dressed in light colored Victorian ball gowns, long gloves matching their gowns, and each one is holding a single yellow rose in their hand (a yellow rose means “I care”, and signifies friendship), the groomsmen to the left in white gloves and tuxes, all standing in front of the platform, but not blocking the stairs up. Victorian style jewelry would be perfect for these gorgeous bridesmaids. The prince is dressed in a tux as well, with white gloves on, but unlike his groomsmen, he has one white rose pinned to the front of his tux.

The couple give their final kiss, and turn to their audience. As the ceremony comes to a close, the couple walk side by side down the long red carpet, white rice being tossed into the air, not at our couple, and they go outside to be greeted by two white horses, and a round white carriage. The couple ride off in this Cinderella style carriage.

For the after party of the happy couple, the fairytale can be carried over to the wedding reception. The room can be costumed in a Victorian ball style; gold, deep red, and white would be the ideal colors. The tables can be draped in deep red cloth with gold trim, white plates on top, a bouquet of white and red roses (these two colors combined symbolize unity) in gold vases in the center of each table.

The tables all surround a dance floor in the middle of the room, white and red rose petals scattered across, this will be where the couple shall share their first dance as a married couple and it should be special. A small stage beside the dance floor would be perfect for a small band.

Most importantly, the couple, as well as their guests, should enjoy themselves, so dance the night away! Don’t forget to thank your guests with Fairytale Wedding Favors so they’ll always remember your happily ever after fairytale wedding.

I Now Pronounce You Paid In Full: Who Pays for What During the Wedding

There’s no two ways about it: weddings are expensive. Paying for every detail is enough to drain any family’s financial coffers and – even worse – leave them wrestling with debt. Especially for new couples paying their own way during the wedding, the expenses quickly add up. The following is a traditional guide to dividing expenses equally and fairly among the four major participants in planning the four main parts of the wedding celebration: rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and honeymoon. These are guidelines more than rules, and are intended to show tradition more than carved-in-stone etiquette.

The Bride’s Family

There’s a popular misconception among the unmarried of the world that the bride’s family foots the entire bill. That’s not entirely true, though unfortunately it may feel that way for the father of the bride! Traditionally, the bride’s family finances the reception dinner with all its facets: the food, drink, venue, service staff (including tips), flower arrangements, wedding favors, and any other miscellany. The bride’s family also pays for many of the necessities leading up to the ceremony: these usually include the bridal gown, the wedding invitations and save-the-date reminders, as well as the engagement and wedding photographs. Finally (!) the wedding ceremony costs, the photographer and videographer fees, the cost of the ring bearer and flower girl accessories, the transportation costs and bridesmaids bouquets are all picked up by the bride’s family. Honestly… if you’re the parent of a young girl, start saving right now.

The Bride

Compared to her family, the bride gets off relatively easy. Brides traditionally pay for the groom’s wedding band, gifts for her bridesmaids, the bridesmaids’ luncheon, her blood test fees, and the wedding day lingerie. In the strictest traditional sense, the bride should also pay for her out-of-town bridesmaids accommodations.

The Groom

Okay, guys. Time to pony up. Following the engagement ring (that two-month’s salary guideline is passé, by the way) you’ve still got a few things left to buy. You’ll pay for the honeymoon, the marriage license, and gifts for your groomsmen. The gentleman groom, however, also pays for the bridal bouquet and corsages for your mother and your new mother-in-law. You’ll also pick up the boutonnieres, ties, and accessories for the groomsmen, and finally the bride’s wedding ring. Gifts for the ushers and for your parents go the extra distance to showing your class. You should also pay the honorarium for the judge, justice of the peace, or clergyman who officiates the ceremony, too.

The Groom’s Family

Besides their own attire, the groom’s family is responsible for the rehearsal dinner and all its details.

The Maid of Honor

Bachelorette parties and wedding showers are the responsibility of the maid of honor. This includes all the details, top to bottom.

The Best Man

The best man is master of ceremonies and godfather of the bachelor party, from the planning to the execution to pouring all the guests into cabs at the end of the night. It’s a dirty job, but someone’s got to do it.

The Groomsmen and Bridesmaids

Most of the attire – for example, the tuxedo rental and costs of the gown – are the responsibility of the individual wedding party member. They also give a gift to the newlyweds. Groomsmen arriving from out-of-town are also expected to pay for their accommodations. My Wedding Favors has a complete selection of elegant yet inexpensive wedding favors to fit any taste and style. We also carry a complete selection of groomsmen and bridesmaids gifts. Visit us online at www.myweddingfavors.com to browse our complete catalog.

Tips on Planning Your Disney Wedding

Celebrating the happiest day of your life at the happiest place on earth. Here are some tips to help you plan your wedding atprincess-wedding-dress-pictures-27.jpg

Disney.

Chose a Season: Central Florida has a reputation of warm sunny weather. But some times of the year are better than others.  Use this as a guide to help you chose the right month for your Disney Wedding.

  1. January-February: Cold (60-50 degrees F) It may not sound cold to most, but when you are wishing for sunny tank top weather, your not going to find it here. The up side? It’s the least busy time for vacationers.
  2. Later February-April: (70-80 degrees F) Spring break can bring vacationers, the weather is warm, but tolerable but there is a chance for spring thunder storms.
  3. April- May (83-87 degrees F) Humidity is going to high, and it makes you feel hotter but most vacationers aren’t present.
  4. June-August (90-97 degrees F) This is high season for vacationers as well as hotel rates. Hurricane season starts June 1st.
  5. September- October (89-84 degrees F) The heat starts to lessen, after Labor day vacationers start to thin. The hotel rates start to lower. This is the peak of hurricane season.
  6. November- December (85-71 degrees F) November is the most popular month for a Florida wedding, and hurricane season ends. Mid December starts getting busy with vacationers.

Chose the day of the week. While Saturdays are most popular Fridays and Sundays are becoming increasing popular. It is not unusual for the Grand Floridian\’s Wedding Pavilion to have multiple weddings a day, including weekdays.  Some Saturdays are booked up to two years in advance. This means that you may need to consider a weekday for your celebration.

Choose the time of day. Sunset weddings, morning brunch or even afternoon tea time weddings should be considered. Keep in mind you and your fiancée personality as well as guests that may attend. Some older guest and children may leave early at a late wedding reception.

Send ‘Save The Dates’ Early. If any of your guest are coming from out of town, you want to send you save the dates (STDs) early to give your guest time to plan.

Consider hiring outside vendors. When planning your wedding, you will be given package options including Djs, Photographers and Videographers. You may have some more flexibility if you hire an outside vendor. Orlando wedding videographers and other vendors can be found using a search engine.

Splurge on preserving your memories. You spend a year planning and then in 8 hours the whole thing is over. Make sure you preserve your memories. Hire a great Orlando wedding videographer and photographer so that you can relive those memories.

Go excotic. The Wedding Pavilion at the Grand Floridian is the most popular venue at Walt Disney World but there are other wonderful venues you can wed. Get creative and marry at Epcot’s Paris or Italy. The decor is already set for a romantic wedding. Little to no additional decorating is necessary.

Plan a Vacation. If having your wedding at Disney is a destination wedding, and most of your guest are traveling for your wedding, make it easy for yout guest to make it a vacation. There are vacation homes that can be rented or a block rooms at a choice hotel.  You may be surprised how many people RSVP when the find out they can take a vacation as well as attend your wedding.
