Bridesmaid Accessories

Of course, flowers are still the most popular accessory for a bridesmaid to carry down the isle. However some couples stray from tradition and think outside the box. Some of the more interesting are:

 Pouches or Dilly Bags
 Crystal Bouquet
 Colored or Plain Fans
Parasols (Great for a summer wedding)

Wife Weekend and Husband Holiday

Something I came across while planning a friends Hens night was and idea that I found completely fascinating. A new concept call Wife Weekends and Husband Holidays. The idea behind it is that this would be the first weekend away with the boys and the girls after the honeymoon is over. Usually taken at about the 6 month anniversary of the wedding once life has gone back to (almost) normal.
Some popular Wife weekends include spa days, wine tours and beach retreats. Husband Holidays can include Golfing, camping and fishing.
Unlike a Hens or Bucks, where it is all about a "Last night of freedom" and going Wild, the WW and HH are more about getting away and relaxing. Plus it's about what the group will enjoy and not just the bride or groom.

Bohemian Wedding

Bohemian weddings are classed as the ultimate shabby chic and modern hippy kind of weddings. They are relaxed, casual and can easily be done cheaper than most wedding themes.
Bohemian weddings are full of flowers, lace, pastel colors and almost always held outside in the sunshine and fresh air. Some of my own personal favorite wedding decorations have been boho inspired.

 Hanging candles seem like fire flies in the trees.

Simple table make everything seem more relaxed.
having a lot of white keeps things crisp and clean.

The Sleep Over.

Many a parent dread the Sleep over Party. Having just been through one myself I can tell you that there is ALMOST nothing to fear. My advice, when you get a 'Yes' RSVP, ask if there are any allergies or if the child can or can not have sugar. I had a child that had a sugar high at the party, but her parents had neglected to tell me that she does not have sugar at home. Once I realized this, the sugar went away and the fruit came out.
Otherwise, the night went well. I found it better to spread he food out instead of lumping it all together on the table before everything had begun. The best thing at the party, and my new best friend, was the movie collection. young teens are always happy to just sit and watch a movie with some popcorn and chips. The movies that proved popular were:

Alice In Wonderland
