    This planted centerpiece would be the perfect decor for an eco-friendly wedding! 


    Ingredients:

    Rocks Potting soil Moss Garden plant of your choice Glass container of your choice Garden gloves

     

    How To:

    Place rocks on the bottom of the container.

    Add soil. (Use a trowel for this step if you like.)

    Remove the plant from the container. You will probably need to remove some of the dirt from the plant. 

    Once you have it “planted” in the dirt in the container, give it a few drops of water. 

    Now add the moss.

    There you have it! A lovely terrarium. Place the terrarium in indirect sunlight. Spritz it with water once a week and remember you can always change out your plant for the seasons. Get creative and have fun!

  • A beach wedding is romantic and relaxing.  It is a celebration for everyone involved. A beach wedding offers many opportunities for creativity. But whether your beach is close to home or far away, there is quite a bit of planning involved. 

    Beach Wedding Guidelines:

    Plan in the wedding 6-18 months in advance.  Choose a location that is practical with your budget. Plan how many people will be attending. Send out save the date cards. If needed, research costs of flights and itineraries for your guests and plan for a block of rooms. Find venues for the wedding and reception. Reserve your venues at least six months ahead, more if possible. Research the legal guidelines for the marriage ceremony and arrange for an officiate. Decide if you will combine in the wedding and honeymoon.  (Likely, if it is a destination wedding.) Check local weather patterns. Be thoughtful of guests. Give them travel information they need.  Plan a welcoming dinner. Seek professional help.

    Decorations: The beach theme

    Natural colors that reflect the environment are warm and intimate including sea blue, sea green, sandy earthy brown, and coral. Objects for decorating can be natural like star fish, sea shells, and casual like beach chairs, glass, and light clothing. A burlap runner can be placed on the sand for an aisle  Chairs can be placed in a circular pattern to create an intimate feeling. Candles in lanterns can be used to designate the ceremony area. Instead of a guest book, guests can sign post cards and place them in the treasure chest..

    Wedding Portrait

    From the time that they were first engaged, Jayde and Christopher knew that they wanted to be married by the ocean. The wanted this setting of sky, ocean and sand to tell the story of their love. Of course, they planned for pictures of the ceremony, the wedding party, and the reception. But more than anything else, Jayde and Christopher wanted a 0077edding portrait of just the two of them at the edge the ocean. It would be their perfect moment. They wanted to select one image to frame, place in the heart of their home and keep it always as a precious reminder of this day and their love. It would be art.

    They had many things to consider. 

    Tone-- What mood did they want their portrait to create?  This picture would represent their marriage.  They looked at a variety of poses.

    Dramatic-- silhouetted by light. Playful-- dancing in shallow water. Romantic-- touching or kissing. Thoughtful-- walking hand-in -hand down the beach. Humble-- small against the immense the sky and the ocean. Passionate-- embracing in the incoming tide. Infatuated--looking at each other. Contemplative-- looking together at the sea.

    Time-- When would the portrait be taken?

    When will be the best time of day to take capture dramatic lighting? Should the portrait be taken on the day of the wedding? before? after? What if the weather didn't cooperate for the portrait?  Could they reschedule?

    The Ocean's Role

    Do they want beach, water, or sky? Do they want sand or rock beach? Is the beach the foreground or background? What role is reflection and light? Do they want their faces seen or their silhouette?

    What photographer? 

    Jayde and Christopher knew they needed to hire a professional photographer, someone in Western Australia where the wedding would take place. They looked at Envy Photography, and studied Roger Clark's portfolio.  His beach wedding shots were spectacular.

    Turn inexpensive manilla gift tags into beautiful dip dyed paper goods that you can use for wedding favors, table numbers, thank you notes, and beyond. They're super easy and quick to make and will add a colorful DIY touch to packages, tables, and more.

    Here's how to make your own dip dyed gift tags with watercolor paints...

    Materials:

    Manilla Gift Tags (any size) Watercolor Paints  Small Bowl or Mug Water Paper Towels

    How To:

    1. Start by filing a mug or small container halfway with water. Then, add in a generous amount of watercolor paint and stir until completely mixed.

    2. Next, dip tags into the watercolor and water mixtures, pulling up to see the color after 15-20 seconds. If the color is too faint, remove the tag and add more paint. Stir. Then, dip the tag back into the mixture.

    3. Once you've reached the desired color, remove from the container, and place onto a paper towel to let the tag dry.

    4. Repeat this process until you've completed the number of tags you'll need for the occasion.

    5. Allow the tags to dry flat for several hours (up to 24 hours). Then, you can write messages / table numbers / names / etc on each tag with a pen.

    6. Tie a finished gift tag to a small bouquet of flowers as a souvenir for your guests to take as they leave. Or gift them to your bridal party and other friends and family, instead.

  • Your ceremony is the central focus of your wedding day. Adding some unique touches will make your ceremony feel more personal and special. Check out these five ceremony rituals that you can include in your special day.

    Knot Tying Ceremony

    In this ceremony, the couple takes two ropes and ties them together to represent their new life.

    Handfasting Ceremony

    This ceremony is a tradition in several cultures, including Celtic. During this ritual, ribbons are tied around the couples hands and wrists to literally “bind them together.”

    Sand Ceremony

    Two vessels of sand are poured into one vessel, signifying the couple’s union. We’ve seen this done a few different ways—each person has a different color of sand, or each provides sand from their favorite beach.

    Tree Planting Ceremony

    The couple plants and waters a tree together, which is symbolic of new life and the cultivation of their marriage.

     Wine Ceremony

    During this ceremony, the couple places a bottle of wine and love notes to one another into a wooden box. The box can be opened when the couple is facing difficulties in their marriage, or on a special anniversary.

  • Memories of a wedding linger on - long after the party is over - thanks to the delicious food and the excellent wine that you served and not to speak of the entertainment and foot tapping music played by the DJ. While this can be said for most weddings since memories of the occasion might vary from person to person, the one thing that would never fade out of the memory of your guest is a barn wedding.
     
    Georgia barn weddings are a class apart. Generally speaking barns have a rural and rustic appeal that is very popular with party goers. Using this appeal for organizing private events and party events is a wonderful idea, and if extending that to weddings can be a good business proposition, then why not?
     
    If you are on the lookout for innovative ideas to host a wedding or any corporate/ private event then you need not look any further as Georgia barn weddings offer several advantages over other locations:

    -    The biggest differentiator is the ambience and aura of a barn that beats the atmosphere of any city or town location hands down anytime. 

    -    For city folks a visit to a farm in the countryside is a far cry in their busy lives and they are always on the lookout for such an outing. 

    -    For kids there is an excellent opportunity to see the farm animals, in case there are any that are lodged on the farm. 

    -    Women find the barn a place where they feel at home and can relax and 'connect" themselves with others as well as find their true selves. They find a barn to be a relaxing place. 

    -    Innovative ideas to host your weddings and keep your clients satisfied and staff motivated. 

    Georgia barn weddings have it all that it takes for a great wedding – florists are at hand to decorate the venue, DJs are just a call away to entertain your guests, photographers can be hired and if the venue appears to be small, then vendors for tents can be hired as needed to provide additional seating. Typically areas are demarcated for serving beverages and cocktails and separate areas are marked for serving seated meals as well as standing buffets. 

    Reputed and well known caterers are also available for hiring depending upon your guest list and the menu that you propose to order. For theme weddings, wedding coordinators provide exceptionally valuable advice. They also provide advice for optimum utilization of wooden boxes, straw bales and folk art. 

    Barns also score over their competitors by having means and facilities to entertain the guests. These are ‘lawn games’ that keep the guests engaged and commons amongst these are Corn hole, Life Size Connect and others.  Bonfires are available on request in cold weather under the supervision of staff.

    To summarize, while weddings can be organized anywhere depending upon your needs and guest list, the joy and the fun of a wedding gets doubled when the wedding takes place in a barn.

  • We are very excited about our wedding, does anyone here have experience with a website providing service specific to people getting married?  I know godaddy has a website builder program, but we want themes that are more related to our wedding.  So far i've found wedding wire and rsvpwed.com from just basic searching.  But maybe someone here knows of one they had a positive experience with?
