From boutique hotels to private islands to luxe villas, put these on your list to explore before you make your final decision.

    When we say hidden, we mean really hidden. Why not say 'I do' on the private island of Petit St. Vincent?  This tiny Grenadine Island is home to lush rolling hills and white sand beaches. Think seclusion and serenity, a perfectly suited paradise for taking vows.  

     

    Hidden Gem no. 2: El Dorado Maroma

      

    Go for intimacy and relaxation by choosing El Dorado Maroma to host your big day. This boutique hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico is surrounded by secluded beaches and awe-inspiring views.

     

    Hidden Gem no. 3: Curtain Bluff in Antigua

    Sit in the lap of luxury at Antigua's Curtain Bluff Resort.  The setting is pure magic with private pools overlooking the ocean and the finest of simple pleasures. Depending on the number of guests attending, you may even opt to rent out the entire resort! 

     

    Hidden Gem no. 4: Azul Villa Carolla

    The Azul Villa Carola is a well-kept secret just waiting to be discovered.  Located next to the Azul Beach Boutique Hotel on a stretch of pristine, white-sand beach, you'll enjoy the privacy of a luxe villa vacation, with the service of a five star resort and in-house butler. If you're jetsetting with just a few close friends to bear witness, up to twelve guests can spread out in this 10,700 square foot haven with an idyllic master bedroom and dozens of fabulous amenities. 

     

    Hidden Gem no. 5: Sugar Ridge in Antigua

    If breathtaking views paired with the charm of a boutique hotel sound right up your alley, Antigua's Sugar Ridge is a must-see!  This stylish and romantic setting features an Aveda Concept Spa and special perks for brides, grooms, and honeymooners.

  • The engagement party is just the first of many more celebrations to come. Here are some unique ideas for your engagement party. (expert advice)

    You've said 'yes' to that special man in your life and now it's time to celebrate your upcoming wedding with family and friends. This means you better start planning some sort of get-together or engagement party in order to spread the joyful news. Where do you start? First, you should come up with a suitable and available engagement party location, and possibly toss around a few ideas for an engagement party theme, which is perfect for couples who don’t want to trade traditional nuptials for a theme wedding.

    Before You Get Started
    Before you start brainstorming for the perfect location for your engagement party, you first need to iron out a few details, including:

    • Budget: Your available budget will certainly dictate the location and other aspects of planning your engagement party. Remember – this is a party meant to announce your engagement and should in no way exceed the amount of money spent on your wedding ceremony or reception. Pinch pennies now so that you have more money to spend later.

    • Guest List: The number of guests will also affect your engagement party plans, as you must find a space large enough to accommodate the people you invite.

    • Party Theme: If you are centering this celebration on a particular theme, it's best to come to a final decision before browsing potential locations.

    Unique Engagement Party Locations
    When planning an engagement party, keep in mind that you don’t have to fall victim to the space restrictions and rules that apply to wedding locations. This means you can select sites that you'd love to have your wedding at, but just can't pull off in time or with your budget. So, this is the time to explore partying at a sports park, old movie theater, amusement park, or historic garden. Those who wish to splurge on their engagement party location may select sites that are typically reserved for weddings, which include country clubs, reception halls, and wineries. Other engagement party locations to consider, includes:

    • Your favorite restaurant
    • Parent's home
    • Beach 
    • Park 

    Unique Engagement Party Themes
    Looking to celebrate your engagement in style, with a touch of humor, or absolutely off-the-wall? Consider planning an engagement party centered on a particular theme. Food, decorations, and fun activities usually mimic the theme of the evening, which may include:

    • A hula bash with grass skirts and Pina Coladas by the beach 
    • A romantic affair with dreams of the Eiffel Tower 
    • Recreating important milestones in your life with your fiancé 
    • Ball and chain humor
    • Costume ball focused on famous lovers

    Fringe is still everywhere and I don’t think it's going out of style anytime soon. Traditionally, you take tiny pieces of fringe and cover shapes and large paper mache objects. For this DIY, I will show you a new technique to breeze through fringing anything.     Materials: Tissue Paper Cutting Mat and Rotary Cutter Scissors (or fringing scissors – easier) Elmer’s Glue Poster Board   Step One Lay several sheets of tissue paper flat and fold in half lengthwise. Use your cutting mat, a straight edge and your rotary cutter, to cut strips 2.5” wide across the fold.     Step Two Take each set of strips and unfold. Refold lengthwise.     Step Three Fold in half widthwise and cut fringe on the bottom (not the folded) edge.     Step Four Separate each fringed strip and refold lengthwise. Take your poster board and across the short edge, run a thin bead of glue across the length. Lay a fringed piece across the glue and press lightly to adhere. If the strip isn’t quite long enough to reach, just add pieces as needed. For the next layer add another bead of glue above the first strip and add another strip.     Step Five Repeat until the entire poster board is covered. Let dry.     Step Six Print out letters from your computer. Cut out the letters from the paper. Place each letter on the fringed board, adjusting it so the fringe goes left to right across the letter, and cut loosely around the edge. Once you have the smaller piece, use the template to cut out the shape perfectly.     Step Seven Repeat with remaining letters. Sometimes after cutting, the tops of the letters are missing fringe. Simply add touch up pieces of tissue paper fringe and glue down. Let dry and trim.     Step Eight Use a bunting template to make a fun garland. You can use the fringed poster board to make any shapes you like or keep as is for a fun backdrop or to use as a tray liner. The fringing goes quickly using this method and is less tedious than fringing each shape individually.     Step Nine To make a garland from the letters, simply flip over the pieces and tape down to twine. Here I used washi tape so I can remove and adjust the letters easily after hanging.     photos by hankandhunt.com

    Candles are that one favor you know your guests will use, and they're easier to make than you may think! Forget special candle-making equipment -- microwaveable soy wax is easy to use, and add a package of candle wicking (both available at craft stores) and you're ready to get started!     Begin by choosing an interesting container for your candle: vintage tins, miniature clay pots, and teacups all make lovely and unique statements, and are easy to coordinate with your event. For our project, we used inexpensive cobalt blue jars found on eBay.     First, we cut the wicking to fit the depth of our container. To keep the wick straight, we tied the top loosely around a wooden stick long enough so that it was able to rest on top of the jar, and then centered the wick over the jar.     We put the soy wax flakes in a microwave-safe container with a spout (which makes it easier to control the wax when we're ready to pour it into our jars) and melted the wax according to the package instructions.     You can personalize your candle's fragrance with a huge variety of fragrance oils, or leave them unscented. We added a few drops of lavender oil to our hot, melted wax, carefully poured it into the jars, and let them sit undisturbed until completely cooled and solid.     While the candles cooled, we prepped the packaging for our candles. We made simple gift tags and cut sprigs of dried lavender to tie around each jar.     The finished product: fragrant soy candles, personalized for each guest!     Use each candle as a place setting, or display them all together on a favor table. Your guests will love them!   Photos By: Mary Swenson

    If you've always dreamt of carrying a bouquet of old fashioned garden roses down the aisle, but your budget doesn't quite match up to the dream, try this version!

    Materials: 24 stems of spray roses (It works best if you buy one bunch with buds and one bunch with open blossoms) Order them ahead of time to secure your favorite color! Garden clippers String or twine florist tape 1-2 yards of ribbon

    Directions: 

    First, pick off the brown petals from the blossoms. We used spray roses, one of the most inexpensive roses on the market, to create this bouquet.     "Edit" each stem. Spray roses have several blossoms on each stem. Clip 1-2 off each stem to leave the prettiest blossoms and the stems that are around the same level on the stem. Also, remove the leaves from these stems.     Take a few of the stems with nice leaves and clip off all the blossoms. Wash the leaves. Leave 1-2 branches of leaves on the stem. Make sure none of the leaves are too low on the stem or it will interfere with the "handle" of your bouquet. Be sure to choose leaves that are hydrated and feel firm.     Spray roses consist of 3-5 smaller blossoms on each stem, and have a more casual feel then your normal florists' roses. They are readily available at markets and florists all year.     Gather a few stems in one hand at a 45 degree angle. Each time you add a stem, turn your bouquet. Don't be afraid to place some blossoms higher than others. This gives your bouquet depth and interest.     Be sure to add leaves in as you go. These frame the blossoms and give the bouquet a natural feel. Tie with twine, cover in florist tape (to protect the ribbon) and tie up with a ribbon.     By deconstructing the spray roses, you can create a bouquet that looks very natural. Your guests will never guess that your flowers came from the local grocery!     The total cost of this bouquet: $12 + ribbon!     Enjoy your beautiful, garden bouquet!

    by Jordan Ferney   Make a cute and easy display for your pinwheel escort cards. For this project, we used a pretty floral origami paper. Origami works great because there is a different pattern on the front than there is on the back.     Supplies for Pinwheels: 1. Floral Origami Paper $5 2. Dowels or Pencils (the pencils work well because you can use the eraser for the pin.) $4 3. Map Pins $4 4. Scissors 5. Strips of cardstock for names For the Display: 1. Flat wood $1/each 2. String 3. Drill and drill bits       Step One: Cut the origami paper in fourths. Step Two: Fold the small square corner to corner in both directions.       Step Three: Cut along the folded line 2/3 of the way toward the center on all four corners. Step Four: Now you are ready to pin. Take one corner of each cut section and pin them all in the middle of the square then add the strip of paper before pinning it all to a dowel or pencil.        Step Five: Depending on how many pinwheels you have, mark the flat wood piece with a pencil about 4" apart so you know where to drill the holes. The holes should be the exact size of the stick. We prefer it like that so you can put the pinwheel as high or low as you want and it will hold in place. Drill the holes along the pencil marks.     Step Six: Drill a small hole on each side for the string to go through. Step Seven: Put the string through the holes and tie knots an equal distance on each side to hold the wood in place.     Step Eight: Assemble pinwheels in the rack and hand from a bush or a wall. For a display rack, we got some flat wood in the dowel section of an art supply store and then just drilled holes the size of the pencils.     You can create pinwheels to fit any color palette.     This whole DIY goes pretty fast depending on how many pinwheels you need. We did this whole project for $17.     Your guests will just love them - see!?!

    You will need a chocolate cake recipe, along with an equally delicious recipe for chocolate ganache which we found here.     Ingredients for this yummy cake typically include unsweetened cocoa, buttermilk, flour, sugar, vanilla extract and baking soda.     For the ganache topping, make sure you have plenty of whipping creme and semisweet chocolate chips.     Always mix your ingredients together well and let sit for a bit!    

    Bundt cake pans. Each of these will serve approx. 5 guests. We like these.

    Tip: Make the cakes ahead of time and freeze them.

    The day of, pour chocolate ganache over the cakes and lift them onto some china plates.
