However, are you aware of some thoughts that may cross your bridesmaid’s minds when it comes to your wedding?

We believe that every member of your wedding should be comfortable! That’s why, here at Rose Petal Events, we have gathered some things that your bridesmaids may be thinking, to help you ensure that they are comfortable. If you would like to learn what these things are, be sure to continue reading for some insight:

  • Am I supposed to pay for my dress? Leaving your bridesmaids in the dark about finances associated with your wedding is not ideal. You will have many ladies who will all need dresses, and it is important that you make them aware of if you will be covering the costs, or if it will fall onto their shoulders. This way, there are no surprises, and everyone will be on the same page.
  • Do I have to prepare a speech? Most often, the Maid of Honor is the one to give a speech on the big day. However, sometimes the couple would like the bridal party too as well. Or, maybe the bridesmaids would like to. Discussing and planning for speeches ahead of time will ensure that your ladies will know what to expect, and not be left wondering if they are supposed to provide a speech or not.
  • I don’t know any of the other ladies… You may have some bridesmaids who do not know one another. Sometimes, ladies are shy, or could be a tad bit uncomfortable around others that they aren’t familiar with. While the bachelorette party poses as a great way for your ladies to get to know one another, you may want to also consider having them all join you for lunch to meet and mingle before the big day.

We understand what it takes to create a stunning appearance within a wedding. That’s why, here at Rose Petal Events, we have gathered some inspiration for your nautical wedding. If you are interested in discovering more, be sure to continue reading:

  • Nautical colors. First off, you will want to develop a color palette for your wedding, as it will be what sets the stage for each element of your décor. For your nautical wedding, consider choosing navy blue and white, as it is a pairing that will reflect the sea. If, however, you would like to incorporate an additional color, for some vibrancy, consider choosing coral, as the combination of the three will create an elegant appearance.
  • Nautical décor. To represent your nautical theme to the fullest, you will want to showcase the right elements of décor. Choose anchors, sailboats, or even a captain’s wheel, to present a bold appearance throughout your space. In addition, you can incorporate driftwood, fisherman’s nets, rope, and candles, to tie each detail together beautifully.
  • Nautical flowers. For your flowers, you will want them to tie into your theme and color scheme. Opt for hydrangeas, as they represent a beautiful shade of white as well as a lovely hue of blue. Also, white roses will never fail! To add a dash of pizzazz to your arrangements, utilize anemones, as they are a stunning little bloom.

The theme you choose for your wedding should be showcased throughout each element and every element of your decor! These are just a few ways in which you can develop your nautical wedding.

How to Stay Calm During Your Wedding Planning

When it comes to your big day, you will certainly want to stay calm during your wedding planning! rose-petal-events-02-27-17

From developing the right décor to creating the most delicious menu, you will certainly be making a multitude of decisions as you plan your wedding.

However, while this should be such a fun experience, there are times when you can become a little stressed out.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we are honored to be able to assist brides in planning such a gorgeous wedding. That’s why we have gathered some tips to help you stay calm during your wedding planning experience. If you are curious to learn more, be sure to continue reading:

  • Organization is key. With so much on your plate, the last thing you would want is to feel as though you have nothing under control. Stay organized! Consider creating a checklist to allow you to easily monitor each of your wedding tasks. Also, within your checklist, it is even more efficient if you create a timeline, such as tasks that you should complete 8 months prior and so on, so that you can ensure that nothing is missed. Being organized will certainly ease the stress.
  • Give yourself time. Rushing the planning of a wedding is not ideal! After all, this is such a big event, and should be planned with careful consideration. So, take your time when planning. Ideally, a year in advance is a great time to start your working on all of the details, as that gives you a multitude of time to make sure that each and every aspect will be exactly as you want it.
  • Delegate tasks. Planning a wedding is such a big task! So, why should you do it all by yourself? From friends and family members, you surely have an array of others who would be more than happy to assist you in developing your big day. Also, a wedding planner or coordinator is the best way to ensure that you and your big day exceeds all of your expectations.

Your wedding is such an important milestone in your life, and planning it should be fun and easy. Here at Rose Petal Events, we want you to be at ease and stay calm during your wedding planning.
