10 Ideas That Will Make Your Wedding Day Extra Special

Weddings are one of those big days in our lives. It is our desire to have that fairy-tale wedding with everything being the best and everyone living the time of their lives. Apart from the usual things like décor, dresses, makeup, food etc. there are many other little details that could enhance your wedding a lot more, after all detailing does bring out everything to be a lot fancier. So here we bring to you 10 ideas that will make your wedding day extra special.

  1. A fancy welcome bag:

Has the celebration started? Make your guests feel like they’ve entered a real fairy-tale wedding with customized welcome bags which have things like a small pack of drinks, cookies and more such goodies apart from the usual venue map and sweets. You can even customize these bags to have details similar to that of your designer wedding dress in Melbourne.


  1. Take care of younger guests:

Which wedding won’t have kids and babies? When the whole family is around it becomes a gathering for all those small humans too! An awesome wedding idea is to make it easier for your guests to take care of their kids by setting up a kid’s play area or a room with fun activities and movies and hire a professional for taking care of them. Have it close to your venue or within it so that it's easy for the parents to check on them.


  1. Flowers/confetti drop on first dance:

Make your first dance look fancier with confetti or flower petals drop, it will even add more beauty to the pictures. You can even add in some smoke and balloons on the floor to add the fairy tale twist to it. Request a custom-made long trail for your couture bridal gown from Melbourne specially to wear it for the dance, just imagine a long trail, slow music and smoke with rose petals, aren’t we already in Disneyland?


  1. Customized guest book:

We started talking about details and a custom-made out of the usual guest book is another good way to represent great detailing. You can get a guest book that’s shaped like something else rather than a normal book, add some creativity to it with stickers and illustrations about you and your better half. Keep fancy pens for your guests to use.


  1. Ask for song requests:

What better way to keep people entertained then playing the music they like? Ask your DJ to have each table request a song they like and have a variety of music being played at your wedding! This way every table can have something to dance to and enjoy. You can even have people come up and sing to karaoke!


  1. Play with your cutlery:

Having a summer beach wedding? Why not add in leaf shaped cutlery or maybe go to have real leaves! Having a vintage wedding? Add in some old themed cutlery! Try choosing something that goes well with the whole theme yet stands and surprises your guest.


  1. Take care of your guests:

Take the specialness to an extra step by offering your guests small takeaway goodies like food packets, aromatic soaps with your initials, a bottle of water, etc. while they go home. Also, pay attention to the weather that day and plan accordingly for seating arrangements, sheds, umbrellas, shawls or maybe sunglasses, so that they’re comfortable. Request your designer to make up some shawls that match your couture bridal gown in Melbourne, if you have the budget for it.


  1. Get a live wedding painter:

Photographers are always the best, but how about having a souvenir from your wedding that has the touch of that day to it? Hire a professional to paint out the wedding while it happens you can even have one at your reception. These paintings will always be closer to you than the wedding pictures. 


  1. Take the customization to social media:

Heard about having theme/brand hashtags? Think of a hashtag that best suits your wedding, it can even be something like: #jadeandnathanhitched or #jadeswedding then you can start adding these to your pictures on Instagram and even on twitter and have a social media album specially about your wedding! Request your guests to add it while posting pictures from your wedding. Another way to have the celebration on social media is by hiring a professional who’ll keep your socials updated as the wedding goes through, then you don’t have to worry about it. You can even have a hashtag that talks about fashion at your wedding and add in the best dresses and wedding gowns in Melbourne that your guests have worn.


  1. Add more of the ‘you’ factor: 

Well it’s your wedding! instead of abiding by the age-old traditions and having the same celebration, add some touches of what you and your better half loves, set up stalls for fun activities that you both like, set up play areas where you can have fun games you’re your guests, add in personalised backdrops with your old pictures or maybe a video about your relationship, add cute little infographics throughout the venue that talk about your relationship, add in a family tree so that the guests know who’s who, and the list goes on and on.

How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Flowers For Your Big Day


Whether you envision yourself walking down the aisle in a couture bridal gown in Melbourne or a simple reception, wedding flowers and décor are essential to elevating your space into a site worthy of a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Learn how to pick the best pros and make it an event for all to revel in and remember.


Once you have your location set, it's time to dream up what will make it look and feel extra-special, and what you might carry or wear down the aisle. While it is not an absolute necessity to have red roses - or even a floral bouquet for that matter: Feel free to explore a variety of options like botanicals, ponder plants, or unexpected alternatives. The trick is to play up what you love, what jibes with your venue, and what's widely available at the time of year.


Find a Florist

Aim to hire one six months to a year out, and allot between 5 and 8 percent of your budget. Ask friends, your venue's manager, and your planner (if you have one) for recommendations. Scroll through Instagram feeds of vendors to see whom they've worked with locally. Unless you love a person's specific style, diverse portfolios are preferable to those showing singular looks. Above all, hire someone you communicate well with. 



Gather Inspiration

Location and time of year are key influences in your design decision—a wintry ballroom and a beach setting have very different vibes. But ideas can come from anywhere. We suggest collecting pictures of favorite spaces and artwork to jump-start the process. Share paint chips of your palette and dress swatches. Consider using blooms with personal meaning, too, like the lilacs your grandmother carried on her wedding day.


Plan for Impact

A few amazing things can be more special than loads of designs used for padding. Go big or dramatic in focal areas, such as entrances or a prominent fireplace mantel. Small arrangements in restrooms or on the bar are optional, but centerpieces are in full view for hours.



Spending Savvy

Want to save money on your big-day floral décor? Remember that blooms that don't need to be flown in from afar are less expensive and more eco-friendly. Fillers, like foliage, branches, and berries are easy ways to amplify a smaller arrangement; they're more cost-effective than fresh petals. Last but not least, ask for designs that can be enjoyed all weekend (and beyond). Use potted plants as aisle markers or near prominent signs, like the "Ceremony this way!" placard in a farm or vineyard.

While wedding flowers are not the most essential part of a wedding, it certainly is a unique accessory that adds awe to a bride on her big day. While planning your wedding day can be exciting, it can sometimes get a little overwhelming having to make so many big decisions. Bernadette Pimenta, at Iconic Melbourne bridal designer is known to craft the perfect balance between style and comfort. Whether you’re picking your florals because they are sentimental to you both, or you’ve been inspired by your wedding dress or bridal party colours, Bernadette will make sure to take all your stress away by delivering the best to you.

The 5 Most Common Colour Wedding Blunders and Ways to Avoid Them

Whenever we think of a grand event like a wedding the one thing that really stands out are the colours used in the décor. The theme of a wedding is affected by various factors and colours play a major role in them. Apart from the interiors and other arrangements, to avoid wedding blunders it is very necessary that we also pay attention to the colours. We all know that there are so many options to choose from, and it’s very natural to fall in love with more than what’s required. But do remember these will be seen everywhere on your wedding day, from your bouquets to the bridesmaids’ dresses!  

The colours work like the soul of the décor, there are so many possibilities when it comes to choosing the right combinations. Having a perfect balance and also focusing on the details of the best couture bridal gowns in Melbourne will provide with you with a beautiful setting. So here are some mistakes you should avoid on your big day:

1. Just looking at pictures

Viewing colours on different mobiles and other devices can change the way they actually would be seen in reality. These devices have different calibrations which affect the actual colour, even on printed sheets. Never finalise a colour without seeing it for real.

2. Picking too many colours

It’s good to go with two or three colours but choosing many colours just because you like them will make the whole set not blend in and feel disjointed. Usually choosing light hues is the way to go or having a darker colour in contrast with a lighter one and a metallic will also do wonders.

3. Pulling off the whole theme on the bridal party

It is not necessary that all the colours of your wedding theme will look good on bridal gowns. There are many stores providing you with the best wedding gowns in Melbourne and will help you guide and match the bridal party with the theme. Do not forget the skin tones and hair colours when choosing the dresses, always prefer colours that’ll go with all the varieties.

4. Ignoring the venue

It’s very much needed that you pay attention to the wedding setting and the whole theme of the place, choosing the colours against the walls and details of the location will make the whole look seem very off.

5. Choosing everything in one colour

If there’s a colour which you absolutely love it’s not good to get everything in the same hue, this will make the whole setting very monochromatic and flat. Try getting variants of the same shade and mix them up with the classic whites and greys or some other favourable colours, metallics work well with every combination too. Stressing a lot is not healthy and might even make you be less excited about your big day. Always try to be more natural and do what you love. Give more effort to getting your most favourite designer wedding dress in Melbourne it will be the biggest memory of your wedding and will be there with you forever, also who wouldn’t just love looking awesome and happy! Pay more attention to the big day of your life and everything else will automatically fall in place.
