Vintage weddings offer something for everyone. A touch of romance for the bride and groom. Strong traditional undertones for the family. Lasting memories for everyone in the shape of beautiful photographs.
Any bride-to-be who has spent a few minutes online has inevitably encountered Pinterest. This social media website, which allows users to “pin” pictures, ideas, recipes, and crafts to a virtual bulletin board, is an incredible source of wedding DIY. From simple tasks like making mason jar centerpieces (a hot ticket item right now) to more involved plans like setting up a wedding photo booth in your reception area, you can find pretty much any wedding idea here.
Signifying love and romance, roses are the most common choice of wedding flower. From a light, spring-like bouquet of white roses for the bride to a more vibrant red for black-tie reception centerpieces, the opportunities for elegance are endless when it comes to this most classic of wedding flowers. But did you know that a yellow rose, though pretty, often stands for jealousy? Or that peach can signify the closing of business deal?
Brides are notoriously bad at micromanagement. High stress over the details of the wedding, fiancés who might not get things done as quickly as they like, family members trying to take over projects, and, yes, even a touch of Bridezilla syndrome can all combine to make wedding planning a bit of a struggle. It’s no wonder that many brides take hold of the reins and refuse to let go—even for small projects that could just as easily be done by someone else.
Memorable Utah wedding receptions aren’t necessarily the ones with the highest wedding budget or the most impressive guest list. When it comes to creating a truly unique day that will have your guests reminiscing for months, the trick is in creating an environment of fun, warmth and friendship.
Although the average American wedding now costs around $25,000, there are no rules that say you have to spend a fortune to have a good time and make a lasting impression on your guests. If an elegant, affordable Utah wedding is what you’re after, here are few ways to get the results you want while staying inside a strict wedding budget.
If you want to save money and the planet while planning your Utah wedding, you can opt for a “green” wedding. Using many of the eco-friendly techniques that have made their way into popular culture, you can create an event that not only showcases how unique you are, but how committed you are to preserving the world for future generations.
One of the best ways to personalize your wedding reception is to come up with a theme. Wedding themes, which can be as simple as “A Spring Garden” or as in-depth as a “Black and White Masquerade,” allow you to create an unforgettable experience that reflects your personality. Many brides-to-be choose colors, seasons, or holidays as part of their theme, while others might select an exotic location or a period in history. Any wedding theme is appropriate as long as it fits in with your vision of your big day.
