Capturing Your Day

One of the most valuable investments of your wedding day is on the people who capture it; your photographer and your videographer. They enable you to relive one of the most important days of your life, over and over again. They enable you to share it with your friends and family today, and your children and grandchildren tomorrow.

Both photographers and videographers are professional storytellers; they tell your story. Effective storytelling ensures that they capture every fine detail from the decor that you personally picked out, to the emotions in your loved ones eyes. Finding your perfect storyteller can take time, but you can start your search at the Bling 2016 Wedding Show by visiting our fabulous show sponsors, Life Studios Inc, & Sweet Pea Photography.

Floral Check List

Flowers have been a significant piece of wedding ceremonies since the Roman times, both Greeks and Romans thought that their smell would deter the evil spirits from the bride and in turn, guarantee happiness and loyalty. The flowers were not carried by the bride in her hands, but, instead, worn in her hair as a garland. At the end of the ceremony the newlyweds would eat the flowers as they were supposed to increase their sexual desire – oh how things have changed.

In today’s day and age we continue to follow the Victorian traditions of handheld bouquets and beautiful arrangements. There are so many options of where to start and where to finish that it can sometimes be very overwhelming – it’s much more than choosing a colour and a family of flowers. Below we have put together a simple checklist to get you on the right track before you meet with your florist to discuss your vision of your big day.

Why Hiring a Wedding Decorator is Important

Decor is not just a thoughtful colour scheme and carefully arranged centrepieces, it sets the stage for your entire wedding. What would you think of a play without curtains? The excitement and anticipation would be extinct. The same holds true for your wedding. Your wedding is your play, make it unforgettable.

From colour schemes and lighting to centrepieces and table decor, it can sometimes feel very overwhelming on where exactly to start. Pinterest is a fabulous place to start but sometimes you can get very carried away with the whole pinning phenomena; as long as you can differentiate between realistic and not, then it’s a wonderful place to get the perfect amount of inspiration.

You have been told your entire life that it is about the small details – the little things – these details  are still important, but, it’s the big things you need to focus on first. Work with the bigger items, like ceremony venue, reception venue and furniture before you start getting carried away with the smaller (but, equally important) items such as the seating chart and the floral arrangement in the bathroom.

We all can pin every beautifully decorated wedding we can find on Pinterest to form our inspiration board, but when it comes to putting our actual inspiration into play, it’s a whole other game. Luckily, the experienced team at one of our decor sponsors, Debut Event Design Inc. can help turn your vision into a reality. Check them out at our upcoming Bling 2016 Wedding Show taking place at Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver on Saturday, October 2nd.
