Special Grooms Gifts: Tavern Signs & Cigar Humidors

Groom Place Setting Photo Courtesy of prettychicblog.dk

Finding the perfect groom’s gift was a little bit difficult for me. I wanted to incorporate his personality and treat him to a fun gift he could use beyond the wedding day. I put together a special watch that I knew he had been eyeing. I wrapped up a few other tokens to use on our big day that would be cheeky and useful. Be sure to include a note or sweet letter for your groom as a farewell to singledom and welcome to marriage. Here are some more ideas:

Grooms Gift Tavern Sign

These Groom’s Tavern Signs are perfect for a gift that he can enjoy after the wedding. Ease his pre-wedding jitters by assuring him that his man cave will still be there after he’s given his life to you. Then celebrate by giving him a Personalized Beer Mug to enjoy in his own little tavern. You can go a step further and include one of his favorite cigars for him to look forward to having after the ceremony. If he’s not much of a beer drinking, give him a special Personalized Cigar Humidor box for him to keep his special stressful day relievers in.

Personalized Cigar Box

Once you’ve picked out your main gift, combine it with some socks and breath mints. Try using cute tags such as “Breathmints: for a fresh kiss”, or “Socks: to ward off cold feet”. There are plenty of small things he may need through out the day, especially depending on your venue and personalities. Try an assortment of cute gift ideas and useful gifts he can reuse over and over.

 

Top 10 Hair Mistakes a Bride Makes

No, I get it, you want to look your best. You’re the bride and the center of attention but there are a lot of things that can go wrong with your hair. Don’t shoot the messenger I’m merely just telling you what  my hairdresser and Google have taught me. I’ve been working on accomplishing my wedding hair for six months already and my wedding is still two months out… trust me, there’s a lot involved when you’re a blonde bride.

1. Amateur Hour Is Over. Stick with a professional hairdresser! The last thing you want is to be stuck with someone unprofessional and unaware of how wedding makeup needs to be applied.

2. Someone Didn’t Check their Wedding Checklist. Don’t be the bride who forgot their veil or headpiece. Always keep a back up, even if you can’t afford duplicates of all your accessories keep extras on hand. There are lots of affordable options for wedding tiaras, veils and headpieces, no need to break the budget.

3. Stay Away From the Scissors. Especially if you’re using a new stylist, avoid cutting your hair days before the wedding. If you are planning to alter your hair before the wedding day, plan at least a week ahead so that your stylist has time to fix it before the big day.

4. Caught Red-Headed. Same advice goes for coloring. Bleaching your hair can cause serious damage and not waiting the proper amount of time in between session can cause breakage. So if you’re going to color your hair plan at to have adequate time between the big day in case you have to recolor it.

5. Brainstorm In Abundance. Your wedding hair is unlike any other updo you may have had done in the past. Your hair has to stay beautiful for the whole day and the photos will last the rest of your life. Your stylist is not responsible for picking your hairstyle– you are. So be sure to bring ideas and inspiration to assure that your stylist has the right vision of your style. If you don’t you might end up with wedding hair that you can’t stand and no time to change it.

6. In Case of Emergency. Even if you can’t afford the all day stylist, be sure to factor in touch ups and blunders. If the wind picks up and you find yourself without enough clips there may not be time to have someone run to the store. Ask your stylist ahead of time to put together a touch up emergency kit. Most professional wedding stylists offer or include an emergency kit for your big day. Some ideas: wedding garters, ballet flats, extra wedding jewelry all put together in a nice personalized wedding bag.

7. Test Your Options. You probably didn’t buy the first wedding dress you tried on so why would you stick with the first hairstyle? There are a lot of options for wedding hair styling and it’s a good bet you’ll like more than one. Try different options so you know which one works best. If you wake up on your wedding day and you have a unfortunate event (there’s always that one zit) you might consider changing your mind again!

8. Remember the Dress. The last thing you want is your hair to distract attention from your dress. If you’re wearing a strapless wedding gown try wearing your hair down in loose curls. If you’re going for a retro 50’s look then wearing your hair up with a pomp might work best. Just remember, use your hair to complement your dress not hide or cover it.

9. Add a Little Extra. Regretting the Pixie cut? Just because you got irritated with your longer do and cut it off days before the engagement, doesn’t mean that you can’t have it long for the wedding. Talk to your stylist about your different length options. A lot of brides add extensions to add length or volume to their wedding hairstyle.

10. Make Room for the Groom. The most important part of your day is standing in front of your groom exchanging vows. He’ll be looking at you at all and the sweetest thing you can do is keep in mind when planning your look. If he likes your hair up with a veil, consider it. You can wear your hair up for the ceremony and release the back part for a casual reception look. If it’s important to him it’s crucial that you consider it.

My groom told me that he prefers my hair up with a veil. While it’s not always the final decision, it’s still nice to know your groom has an opinion and cares. If you disagree but it is still important to him, compromise. What better way to start a marriage?

Bride Advice: Surviving Pre-Wedding Stress

There are a lot of steps to planning a successful wedding. Fortunately, there are a lot of tricks to coping with bridal blunders so that you can come out looking beautiful and calm on your wedding day. Pre-wedding stress is inevitable but managing your time and energy levels you can counteract any panic attacks or other negative side effects.

First of all, I’m not referring to the “is he the one for me” cold feet dilemma, I’m referring to the pre-wedding stress and jitters caused by budgeting, family members and the big one–your wedding dress. Here’s my solution for the months leading up to your wedding. Prevention is 90% of the cure, that being said, planning ahead and proper management of time and energy is essential to staying positive and centered.

Keeping track of your thoughts and appointments in a schedule or calendar is the best way to account for your activities and avoid unwanted stress. Keep lists and reminders as it’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to remember every single detail. And don’t forget your friends and family are there to help- a wedding is a coming together of families and there’s no better way to start than piling them together in a room to help tie favor bags.

Say you’ve got the planning down, you’ve settled into OCD mode and suddenly you find yourself having a panic attack, here are my tips for getting past it.

Have you ever noticed how some brides just look glowing and zen in their photo shoots? Well, the key is laughter. Laughter is known to reduce the levels of cortisol, dopamine and growth hormone. Reducing these stress levels helps to lower excess weight gain and other physical signs of stress. Laughter also helps tighten ab muscles and stretches back and shoulder muscles, which leave you feeling relaxed and comfortable. We can’t all hire a private comedian to follow us around so here’s a simple trick: Smile. It’s contagious and healthy.

When a smile doesn’t do the trick try the next best thing: Breathing. Focused deep breathing helps to calm the body by feeding the brain oxygen. Next time you’re stressed out count your breaths in your head; each time you inhale and exhale counts as a breath. Doing this five times in a row will lower your heart rate and calm you. Your body wants air and releasing bad juju from your brain will help you relax and focus on more important things.

Lastly, not every bride can afford to hide out at the spa the morning of her wedding so try a more affordable route- your girl friends. Spending more time laughing and creating memories will lessen your chances of being stressed out. The beauty of surrounding yourself with friends is that they won’t let you focus on negative thoughts or pessimistic attitudes. By surrounding yourself with people who love and care for you you’re more likely to trust their advice and rely on them for support. In doing so you’ll spend less time worrying about whether your dress will look good and more time having your nails painted bright mismatched colors.

I learned a very valuable lesson a couple years ago when one of my siblings fell sick: “don’t sweat the small stuff; if it won’t matter a year from now, it doesn’t matter now”. Chances are your bridal flowers are perfect and you don’t need to stress about if the color is the wrong shade of navy. Let it go. No one will be able to tell the difference except you and majority of the time you won’t remember any of it a year from now anyways.

If all else fails picture your future husband jumping across hot sands in a two year old swim suit on a romantic honeymoon getaway and I dare you not to laugh!
