Wedding Favors – From Sugar to Eco friendly Ideas

Posted by on Aug 13, 2015 in Centerpieces, Decorations, Eventdesigner, Favors, Flowers, General | 0 comments

Wedding favors are small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation or gratitude to guests from the bride and groom during a wedding ceremony or a wedding reception. The tradition of distributing wedding favors is a very old one. It is believed that the first wedding favor, common among European aristocrats, was known as a bonbonniere: a small trinket box made of crystal, porcelain, and/or precious stones. The contents of these precious boxes were generally sugar cubes or delicate confections, which symbolize wealth and royalty. As the price of sugar decreased throughout centuries, the tradition of providing gifts to guests reached the general populace and was embraced by couples of modest means. As sugar became more affordable, bonbonnieres were replaced with almonds. Today, gifts to guests are commonly known as wedding favors and are shared in cultures worldwide. Wedding favors have become a part of wedding reception planning, especially in the United States and Canada, and they are various, usually complement the theme or season of the event.  Today, the most environmental conscious couples despise the idea of wedding favors, because for the most part, they aren’t environmentally friendly, useless and they can be severely lacking in creativity. An Eco friendly wedding favor not only can represent an ideal, but it can also turn into something truly unique and...

The right Wedding Dress for your body type

Posted by on Aug 10, 2015 in General, Uncategorized | 0 comments

The most exciting moment for a bride is the search for the perfect Wedding dress! White or colored, long or short, simple or decorated, with or without train, expensive or cheap…there are several options to consider before you can say: “This is the one!”. By the time you’re ready to start wedding dress shopping, you’ve probably amassed a pretty nice-sized wish list about your dream gown. At the Bridal shops you can evaluate all the possible options, but it would be more appropriate to limit your options and starting to choose a silhouette that will highlight your best-loved assets and conceal your less-favorable traits. There are at least five featured body types best defines your figure: petite, plus size, busty, hourglass or lean and straight. Of course, you may not fit squarely into one category — most people don’t! But it could be the starting point to select the best dress possible.   Wedding Dresses for Hourglass Body Types Work your womanly curves in a body-con bridal gown or hide your hips in a big ball gown — either way, your gown should show off your trim mid section. You have the curves, now you need to show them off. Opt for body-hugging mermaids that will enhance your sexy silhouette. Stay away from an overabundance of ruffles and tiers. Wedding Dresses for Lean-and-Straight Body Types Because floor-length gowns were made with your model stature in mind, you’ve got lots of options to choose from. But, if you’re hoping to create the illusion of curves — there are few tricks. A dress that will create curves where you don’t have them. Try a sheath dress in a wispy charmeuse that’s cut on the bias; the curving side seam will give you a va-va-va-voom silhouette. Or look for a ball gown that cinches in at your natural waist and descends into a full, flowing floor-length skirt: It will capitalize on your slenderness and camouflage a lack of hips. If You’re Tall… Look for: A simple silhouette. The strategy is to emphasize your natural shape, so every aspect of the dress―the lower waistline, a floor-sweeping hem―needs to reflect your longer proportions. If you’re wearing long sleeves, they should go past the wrist. You don’t want to look as if you’ve borrowed a gown from someone shorter than you. Wedding Dresses for Petite Body Types Petite brides should avoid overwhelming their small frame. Choose airy sheaths and structured trumpet styles over big, frothy ball gowns. Trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns. Find a style with a waistline above your natural waist, to make the lower half of the dress (and therefore you) appear longer. The fabric is up to you―you can pull off a high sheen. But the detailing should be small (no huge bows) and limited to the bodice, to draw the eye upward.  Wedding Dresses for Busty Body Types If you’re a busty bride, you’ve got two choices: reveal or conceal. Either way, finding the right gown starts with pinpointing the perfect neckline. A dress with a scooped neckline. It will open up your face and display your décolletage without showing too much cleavage. If you love the look of strapless gowns, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across (which will make your bust appear even larger and more shelflike).  Wedding Dresses for Plus-Size Body Types An Empire dress with a skirt that begins just under the bust and flows into a gradual floor-length A-line. Make sure the Empire seam does not start on the chest and that there is no pleating of the fabric, which is...

An unique Diamond Wedding Ring

Posted by on Aug 6, 2015 in General | 0 comments

Mrs Marilyn Monroe sang this song in the hit movie “Gentlemen prefer Blondes”. It might be only a sentence, but most women in the World agree with her. Maybe because Diamonds are forever so it is seen as a concrete symbol for a good marriage. The beautiful Marilyn during her short life got married three time, in 1942, in 1954 and 1956, but only once she receive a fantastic diamond ring. It wasn’t an engagement ring but a fantastic wedding ring. Joe Di Maggio slipped on Marilyn Monroe’s finger this amazing platinum eternity band set with 35 baguette-cut diamonds, on January 14, 1954 when he married his Marilyn in a judge’s chambers at San Francisco’s City Hall. This very unique ring  signified the hope of a harmonious future that would never happen. A lasting union between Marilyn Monroe and Joe Di Maggio clearly was not meant to be. Just eight months after their wedding ceremony, the couple separated amid a storm of jealous rows. Two months later, the marriage was no more, and the diamond eternity wedding band was seen no more. Marilyn and Joe’s wedding wrecked and they took different paths, but deep in their hearts the love that bounds them, remained. Mainly was Joe to preserve his unconditional love for Marilyn and he proved when she died 53 years ago; he organized her funeral and for the next 20 years, he sent a dozen roses on her grave. In my opinion, this kind of love crosses the eternity and Joe was the...

Thank you Julie & Oliver!

Julie and Oliver got married last April, in the beautiful island of Ischia. Please, find here below their lovely testimonials! Martina was fab! We had some very specific demands and a strict budget and she helped us achieve both with some beautiful additions. Her nudges were perfectly timed and her organisation was exceptional. Over the course of organising the wedding it became more apparent that she was having to deal with some difficult vendors, and at times we were surprised at how patient she was but she ultimately got them to fall in line and the wedding was perfect for it. We dare not even think about what it would have been like to try and deal with these organisations ourselves! Thank you Martina, it was perfect! Oli and...
