How to Pull Off a Seasonal Wedding Without Overdoing It

Le 28 octobre 2016, 08:20 dans Humeurs 0

Whether you handpicked your wedding date or went with whatever was available at your venue of choice, the time of year you host your nuptials can play a role in some key decisions. But the month you get married shouldn't fully dictate the look and feel of your big day. We asked some pros for their advice on how to keep your wedding seasonal without going overboard.

Don't Over Do It

The trick is to use seasonal décor sparingly, says Audrey Isaac of 100 Candles. "The goal should be to give a nod to the season without it completely overshadowing your theme," she adds. So you can skip the decorated fir trees and wreaths around the holidays. Simply pair lanterns and LED lights with a few pinecones and touches of evergreen. And get creative with glass vessels. You can fill them with seasonal fruits like cranberries floating in water.

Think Beyond the Obvious

For September through November, resist the urge to scatter leaves, pumpkins and scarecrows everywhere. "You will quickly go from 'fall' to 'craft fair,'" says Kim Sayatovic of Belladeux Events. If you're getting married in the spring some simple, fresh flowers is enough to give a seasonal feel. And in the summer, cool colors and sheer fabrics can make you feel like you're in the French Rivera, Sayatovic says. The same goes for weddings around other holidays, like Valentine's Day. Bag the hearts and go old-school romance instead. Use famous love quotes for table assignments or as handheld banners at your photo station, says Paula Ramirez of the Historic Mankin Mansion.

Go Subtle on Color

As far as color, instead of literally decking the halls in red and green at Christmastime, Isaac says to opt for rich metallic tones such as gold and copper. Avoiding the highly obvious choices will help you steer clear of making your wedding look more like Santa's workshop. Similarly, autumn weddings can rely on some gorgeous colors like reds, oranges and yellows, but hold back from using them too generously.

Pick Just One Element to Highlight

Visual subtlety is definitely the way to go, according to Jamie Chang of Passport to Joy, who says picking just one element — for example, the color orange or twinkling lights — for incorporating the season without overdoing it. That said, she recommends thinking of the experience itself in addition to the aesthetics. "Focus on the bringing in the mood of the season and the feeling. That could be in the food or the drinks or the program or the favor or how guests are greeted." A cozy and warm squash soup for fall or a fun wine slushie drink for summer are always a hit with guests. A dessert table packed with traditional holiday treats made by relatives is also a great idea, adds Amy Kolodziej of Sunshower Photography. You can also allude to the season through wedding favors to enjoy at the party or take home. Chang suggests small potted flowers or seeds for spring or greeting guests with something that will make them more comfortable, like hand warmers in winter.

Keep Personal Style At the Forefront

Just remember, don't get carried away. Your best bet is choosing delicate seasonal undertones while using your own personal style to solidify the aesthetics, Ramirez says. So try not to obsess over every single detail being "on season." Being selective about where you choose to highlight fall, winter, spring or summer touches will give it a more natural effect and reduce overall stress. "Don't let it be the focus or take away from what is special about the day — the ceremony and being with the people that are close to you to celebrate," says Emily Sullivan of Get Polished Events.

“The gift, he was kind of embarrassed about this, so I don’t know if I’m supposed to say it, but it meant a lot to me…He and his entire band chipped in and they got us gift cards to Home Depot. I just bought a house, too. I bought a house and planning a wedding and it’s pretty much two of the most stressful things that happen to a person, and also really stressful because I know it probably seems like when you have a song on the radio, you’re immediately a millionaire, but that’s not the case. It’s really stressful to pull it all off.”

“He actually gave us gift cards to different home spots, and the band each gave us one of those…Then he gave me one of his little koozies that he’s got for a drink and it just had a wad of cash in it.”

A wad of cash in a koozie?? That really is the best wedding gift!

“I bawled because I think anybody who knows what it’s like to not have a lot of money and be stretched for cash, that’s probably one of the sweetest things. He’s like, ‘I remember what it was like when I was trying to first set up my home and my wedding. I know it’s really stressful,’” she relates. “I could cry talking about it right now. It’s really sweet and really thoughtful. He’s like, ‘I wish I was giving you a specific gift.’ I was like, ‘No, I really need this cash.’ It was really thoughtful.”

Cristalle, MAS MAGARBO ang kasal kesa kina Solenn, Georgina at Isabelle

Le 17 septembre 2016, 08:10 dans Humeurs 0

A WEDDING fit for a royalty ang description ni Ruffa Gutierrez at ni Rajo Laurel sa marangyang kasal ng daughter ni Dra. Vicki Belo na si Cristalle Belo Henares sa Italya.

Kinasal si Cristalle sa kanyang Australian hotelier fiance na si Justin Pitt nu’ng Huwebes sa Villa Erba sa may Lake Como.

Bulong sa amin ng isang malapit sa pamilya Belo, si Dra. Vicki ang gumastos sa nasabing kasal na uma­bot ng kung ilang milyon ang halaga.

Kahit kasi gene­ral manager pa ng isang international hotel chain ang napangasawa ni Cristalle ay hindi nito kakayanin ang laki ng gastos sa isang ganu’n kaenggrandeng destination wedding.


Kung totoo man ay tiyak na hindi ‘yon isyu sa napakayamang celebrity doctor dahil para ‘yon sa kanyang pinakamamahal na unica hija.

Ang mahalaga ay sobrang saya ni Cristalle at natupad ang dream wedding nito.

Sa sheer wedding gown pa lang ni Cristalle na gawa ng Israeli-born designer na si Inbal Dror ay halos half a million pesos na raw.

Bago nagsimula ang wedding ceremony ay pina-off ang mga celfone at cameras ng mga nandu’n para maging solemn ang kasal.

Kaya walang kumalat sa social media na pics at videos nu’ng actual wedding.

Absent ang madir ni Cristalle na si Dra. Vicki sa kasal nila ni Justin dito sa ‘Pinas nu’ng September 8, pero present ito sa Italya kasama si Hayden Kho Jr. at ang anak nilang si Scarlet Snow.

Sa sosing reception sa Villa Erba ay may mga hunk na bumabanat ng Italian opera songs, na ikinatuwa lalo na ng mga babaeng bisita.

Kabilang sa bridesmaids si Ruffa Gutierrez na kasama sa Italy ang hunky boyfie nito na si Jordan Mouyal.

Present din sina Raymond Gutierrez, ang malaki na ang tiyan na si Georgina Wilson kasama ang British hubby nitong si Arthur Burnand, Phoemela Baranda, Tim Yap, Georcelle Dapat-Sy ng G-Force.

Uso ang dreamy destination weddings na pinasimulan nina Solenn Heussaff-Bolzico, Georgina Wilson-Burnand at Isabelle Diaz-Semblat.

Hindi nagpatalbog si Cristalle sa tatlong ‘It Girls’ at tila mas magarbo pa ang kasal niya kesa sa tatlo!
