Bridal accessories are a must! From diamond filled tiaras to monogram dance floors, accessories matter! Here are 5 tips to consider when choosing bridal accessories when planning a themed wedding.

Tip 1: Know your theme. If you plan a theme wedding, you want to plan everything down to the honeymoon. Planning a theme wedding requires a little browsing before you define the theme. If you pick a theme that is hard to shop for, you will have a hard time finding bridal accessories. You want to find something that is easy to shop for and something that is easy to put together. You do not want to pick something that will consume all your time. Planning your wedding takes time enough without adding a theme that requires any more time.

Tip #2: Ensure your dress, shoes, headpiece and flowers match the theme. If you are planning a theme wedding, you do not want to buy a dress and shoes that will not fit the theme of the wedding. If you plan a themed wedding, you need to also look at dresses, shoes and headpieces to fit the theme. After all, this is the entire idea about a theme wedding. Your flowers should also relate to the theme of your wedding. If you are having a tropical wedding, you are not going to use calla lilies. Match the flowers to the theme.

Tip #3: Ensure your ceremony matches the theme. Many brides have themed weddings to move away from traditional ceremonies and to have a different type of service. If you have a beach theme, you are not going to want the ceremony to have a traditional service. Your guests will appreciate your creativity more if you keep the ceremony in tune with the theme. You can have traditional vows or some couples make their own vows, which add to the beauty of the theme wedding.

Tip #4: Ensure your reception continues the theme. Since your wedding is represented by a theme, you want to keep the reception as close to the theme as possible. You may have a Great Gatsby theme or a fairy tale theme, either way, you want to have table decor, decorations and wedding favors that match your theme wedding. There are twists to every theme wedding, but if you plan everything down to the honeymoon, you can be assured you will have the best themed wedding ever. This is the main reason for having a themed wedding.

Tip #5: Continue your theme to the honeymoon with your bridal accessories. Although you will be spending it somewhere other than the reception hall, you might still want to carry out the theme. Whether you have a hotel room or your own home, you can add some decorations to the room to carry the theme into the next day. Many brides plan such themes for the honeymoon right down to the type of lingerie they will wear. Keeping these five tips in mind should help you plan a great themed wedding and assure you that you will find all the bridal accessories you need to have the perfect wedding.

Choosing a Professional Wedding Planner

Planning your own wedding can be fun, but sometimes it can be just too overwhelming. This is when you should take advantage of a professional planner.

There are many places that you can find professional wedding planners or event planners. You can search the Internet or social media to find a wedding planner. We recommend researching reviews on each wedding planner that you choose. Shop around so that you can get the best estimate. Create a list of planners you like would like to do a face to face interview with. A face-to-face interview is extremely important because you and your wedding planner will become very close. You must have synergy.

Be sure to ensure that the wedding planner you want to hire has good recommendations. Experience and testimonials are very important when you hire any service, but your wedding planner is the most important service that you will be hiring, so you want to be very sure that you are hiring the best.

Apart from recommendations, try to check to see if the wedding planner has experience and get as much information about them as you can before you hire them. If you can find others who they have worked for, try to contact them and find out what sort of job the wedding planner has done for them.

A wedding planner can be quite expensive but is well worth the money. This is especially true when you have a large wedding to prepare for. Sometimes you have to hire someone to help you, or you will get overwhelmed. Remember, you cannot be a bride and planner on your wedding day. Do your research and hire the best wedding planner that you can afford. At the same time be careful to read the contract carefully before signing so that there are no misunderstandings. When you exercise caution and check out everything, you will be able to find a great planner who will make your wedding a special day for you.
