A Favourite Wedding Planning App:

Wedding Planning App Image

Having recently posted about fantastic wedding inspired apps as well as wedding organisers, here is a detailed look at one of the best wedding planning apps available on the market.

Developed for the iPad by Createful, designers had user experience at the forefront of their minds when creating Wedding Planner.

This app puts all the little things you would need to keep in check into the one app.
You can manage your seating plan within a designated section of the app, adding tables, rotating them, adding guests from your guest list and managing more than one template if you want to see how different arrangements work or if you have multiple rooms in use on the night.

As mentioned, the guest list is covered, including those that are there for the whole day
or an evening only guest, plus their RSVP status and any other notes you wish to add.

Colour schemes are covered, as well as To-Do lists and quick post-it style notes
that you can drag around your home screen.

But there are three major faculties of this app that will make it that much less stressful to organise your wedding.

1.    A Budget Planner: forget about countless spreadsheets and lost pieces of paper under    the couch; your entire budget can be planned and adjusted within this app.
2.    A Vendors List: you won’t be able to create your budget if you don’t have a clear idea of the various company’s you will be using to service the success of your wedding. You can track costs, what you have paid and what you have yet to pay and get an overall idea of what your spend will be.
3.    A Day Schedule: you can have the entire wedding day planned to the minute (though we know how impossible this can be). But there is no doubt that you will be able to plan out the major events of the day, and finally export this timeline for your bridal party and family so they know what will be going on.

This app is a great mix of creatively led design with considered substance: unlike some other similar apps, this has everything you need to keep your ideas and plans in order.

How to Have an Awesome Hen’s Night on Any Budget

By Elly Klein

As a hens’ night entertainer (I have a humorous and somewhat educational show called the Men Are Like a Box of Chocolates Hens-travaganza), I know one of my clients’ main concerns is price. They want to organise something fun and memorable without breaking the bank.

Hen’s nights can be out-of-control expensive. It shouldn’t cost a small fortune to get together with the gals and celebrate a bride-to-be’s last big night out as an unmarried woman (unless everyone’s agreed they want to splurge). Hen’s nights are a great bonding experience, so it’s important for the bride to have as many of her female friends and family members there as possible. It would be terrible if half the invitees couldn’t afford to attend.

So, I’ve compiled a list of over 69 ideas to get your party started. There are four categories: Tight Budget, Moderate Budget, Big Budget and Any Budget. The Any Budget ideas are games and goodies you can incorporate into your party to create a true hen’s night experience.

TIGHT BUDGET

If you want to keep things as inexpensive as possible, the hen’s night will need to be held either in someone’s home or a public place, such as a park or beach. This way, you can ask guests to contribute a small amount or bring along a plate and/or bottle. Ideas:

  • Slumber Party: PJs, cocktails, chocolate and chick flicks. What could be better?
  • Naughty Trivia: Search online for ‘naughty trivia questions and answers’, and create a fun, girly trivia night.
  • High Tea: Cupcakes, macarons, finger sandwiches, exotic teas, bubbly, fresh flowers and tiered plates make for a lovely high tea at home.
  • Singstar Party: Bring your Singstar DVDs and best karaoke voice!
  • Picnic/Beach Party: Add a theme, such as Hawaiian, and have an outdoor hen’s party.
  • Topless Waiter: For a nominal amount per head, simply add a topless waiter to turn any party into a hen’s night.
  • Shoulder Massage Party: Search online for ‘hen’s night massage’ or ‘corporate massage’, and enjoy a little pampering while you party.

MODERATE BUDGET

A hen’s night at this price point is the most common, as it usually includes one activity. Again, if you host the party in someone’s home or head back there afterwards, you’ll be able to keep costs down. There are so many fun and unique bonding experiences to choose from. Here are some favourites:

  • Entertainment: Men Are Like a Box of Chocolates Hens-travaganza, male strip show/dance troupe, burlesque show, a play, musical or comedy show, a Gold Class movie experience, tarot card reader/clairvoyant…
  • Fun Lesson: Wine (and cheese) appreciation, cocktail-making, cupcake-making, jewellery-making, art class (with nude male model), theatresports…
  • Tour: Winery tour, shopping tour, ghost tour, chocolate and/or coffee tour, pub crawl…
  • Dance Class: Lap dancing, pole dancing, 80s dancing (with costumes), hip-hop dancing (with costumes)… There’s also ceroc, tango or salsa dancing, but it’d be nice to have some hot guys there to partner up with.
  • Sport: Horse-riding, surfing, ice-skating, rollerblading, hiking, ten-pin bowling, lawn bowls…
  • Outing: Amusement park, expo (such as Sexpo or the Mind Body Spirit festival), karaoke, paintball, something that’s unique to your city (such as jet-boating on Sydney harbour)…
  • Pamper: Massages, manicures, pedicures, facials, other treatments… in a day spa or by using a mobile spa service.
  • Purchase: Party plan sex toys, lingerie, shoes, jewellery, clothes… Pitch in to buy something for the bride.
  • Dinner: Degustation with matching wines, three-course meal with pre-dinner cocktails… In this case, adding an activity might make the whole hen’s night too expensive, so perhaps just stick to a lavish girly dinner party.
  • Big Night Out: Forget dinner. Meet at a bar, club or casino and have a big night out!

BIG BUDGET

Occasionally, there will be a hen’s night where everyone agrees to splurge. In this instance, here are some ideas that are a little pricier than your average:

  • Ski/snowboard trip: Sharpen your edges and hit the slopes.
  • Tropical resort trip: Lie in the sun, read trashy books/mags and flirt with cabana boys.
  • Road trip: Hire a house for the weekend, jump in the car and off you go.
  • Vegas (or equivalent): Sip cocktails by the pool, gamble, go to a show, go clubbing, have a blast!

ANY BUDGET

Regardless of your budget, it’s probably worth throwing in a few traditional games and goodies for an authentic hen’s night experience. Suggestions:

  • Goodies: Search online for ‘hen’s party supplies’ or head to your local cheap & cheerful store to stock up. Just don’t go overboard, or it’ll look tacky.
  • Bride & Groom Trivia: How well does the hen know her fiancé? Ask the groom a list of questions ahead of time. For every answer the bride gets wrong, she has to do a shot or take a sip of her drink. Ask questions like: What’s his middle name? What’s his favourite movie? Besides you, who would he turn to in a crisis?
  • Wedding Dress Design: You will need lots of white toilet paper rolls, plus scissors and sticky tape. Each team must design a wedding dress with the materials they’ve been given. One model per team. The hen chooses the winner.
  • Post-it Memories: On a Post-it, guests have to write down a memory they have of the bride and stick it to a wall. She must then take each one down, read it out and say who she thinks wrote it. For every one she gets wrong, she has to do a shot or take a sip of her drink. Give her something nice to keep the Post-its in.
  • Hen’s Challenge: Purchase a lovely gift for the hen, but make her earn it. Give her a short list of cheeky challenges to complete, such as: get a single man to buy you a drink, get a piggy-back ride around the bar, wear your bra on the outside of your clothes (in public!) for five minutes
  • Naughty Sculpture: Out of Play-Doh, guests must craft a life-like sculpture of a penis. The sculptor of the appendage the hen finds most appealing wins a prize.
  • Pin the Willy: Remember Pin the Tail on the Donkey? Well, this is the grown-up version – Pin the Willy on the Hunk. Purchase a Pin the Willy kit online or at a cheap and cheerful store.
  • Womanly Advice: On a nice piece of stationary or in a journal, guests need to write one piece of marital advice for the hen. Once everyone’s finished, they can stand up and read out their piece of advice. It’s also a lovely keepsake.

There. Over 69 ideas to get your ultimate girly party started. Happy hen’s night!

DIY Destination Weddings

Destination weddings

Don't forget the logistics when it comes to your destination wedding

A personal, DIY wedding is still possible when you get hitched overseas. By Narrelle Williams, Director and Wedding Planner from Global Weddings

As specialists in destination weddings, brides come to us at Global Weddings all the time to co-ordinate their dream weddings in Bali, Mexico, Thailand and many other exotic locations. Brides usually have a real vision for what they want their day to look like but don’t realise the resorts don’t have most of what they’ll need to create that vision.

With most brides wanting to personalise their weddings with DIY touches to help create their vision – chalk boards, jam jars, fairy lights and candles on the beach – we work with them to figure out the best way to do this as we’re about making sure our clients have their dream destination wedding.

Destination brides often forget to factor in the logistics around sourcing and shipping of these items on to their to-do lists and into their budget, so the effort and money that goes into these details isn’t realised until the last minute. These logistics need to be considerations from the get go when planning any destination wedding.

Destination weddings have much more to plan for than people think, so here are my top tips to help make your day everything you dream it to be:

» Pre-plan the planning – you may think yourself one laid back bride for going the destination wedding route but you know deep down that you are a bridezilla, so avoid unnecessary stress and think about every aspect of you and your guests’ travel as well as the day itself to ensure it’s all on your to-do list.

» Budget – for the shipping of items overseas and decide what details are important to you for the day. If it’s not worth the hassle, forget about it. There is so much to remember which is why an overseas wedding planner will assist and ensure you don’t forget anything.

» The dress – it’s big, it’s beautiful and how the heck are you going to get it on a plane? Unless you’re willing to wear it on the plane you’ll need to wear a non-traditional and easily packed fitted dress for your destination wedding or you’ll need a special dress box freighted to your hotel – check your dress maker to see if they have one otherwise you can discuss your boxing needs with your shipping company. Full service airlines will allow you to take the dress on board and hang in their business class cupboard even if you are flying economy. You run the risk of your wedding gown getting squashed but if you’ve got a steamer at destination it should be okay.

» The details – The likes of Thailand, Fiji and The Cook Islands don’t specialise in crafty DIY items – no, mason jars, fairy lights or craft and vintage stores for your finishing touches and if there are any for hire, be warned prices will be very high ($12 per medium-sized candle)! You need to think about how you’ll get the goods to your destination wedding safe and sound.

» Shipping – Do your research and cost comparisons to decide on your shipping company now. There’s a ton of great companies such as PACK & SEND who specialize in sending delicate items to exotic locations. Your other option is to carry whatever you need with you, so move those new bikinis and shoes aside and pack it all in! Look at whether checking additional bags or paying for extra weight there and back is cheaper than shipping.

The Charity Bride

Your wedding can be about more than a couple – consider lessening your wedding’s impact on the world with recycling where possible, being generous and involving charities. By Chloe Beesley

If you’re the kind of bride to be who finds it hard to justify spending so much on your wedding, here are some great ideas and tip on how to give something back after the big day, and ways in which your wedding can contribute to society.

The Big Aussie Swap is happening for Plant Ark’s National Recycling Week from November 11-17, 2013. It is a great opportunity to get rid of the things you no longer want whilst also finding new treasures – all without digging into your pocket! As they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure so get involved and swap with your friends and family, or keep an eye out for large swap parties in your local area.

When it comes to weddings, there is so much possibility for finding or giving away items at a swapping party. After all, every bride needs the “four somethings” and this is a sure way to find something old to go with the new, something borrowed and something blue. It is also a great idea to recycle things like decorations, centre pieces and candles. Even wedding dresses can be reused and recycled by being altered, turned into a christening dress or by having the fabric used for decoration.

Hosting your own swap party is definitely an option, and if you’ve already organised a wedding this will seem super easy to arrange! The general idea is to tell all your friends and family to bring along good quality products that they no longer want. Each item is registered in exchange for a token, and then these tokens are swapped for other people’s things.

Cut down waste at the wedding reception

There is no denying that weddings are generate a load of waste, such as food, garbage, paper and cardboard, so why not make the best day of your life even better by helping others? Recycling food through organisations like OzHarvest is a great way to help out other people in need and avoid wasting all that great produce that you have already paid lots of money for.

It’s fun, free and the feeling of helping others and the environment is priceless.

Wedding favours and gift registries

Some couples just have everything they need. Share the love around and instead of getting more stuff or money, if you guests want to commemorate your nuptials with a gift, give your guests the option to donate to your chosen charity through sites such as Everyday Hero or Karma Currency. You’ll be in good company with this giving option: lots of well-known personalities have gone down the charity path in lieu of wedding gifts, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

If you want a traditional registry but still want to include a charity element to your day, donate on behalf of your guests instead of giving wedding favours. Even with this option, you can provide something for your guests to take home, for example you can donate through buying them all a charity ribbon or a Red Nose for SIDS and Kids. Oxfam shops have a great range of Fair-Trade items that would be suitable for bomboniere, from organic Amazonian chocolate-coated coffee beans to etched glass candle holders from India.

Arrive to your wedding in style.

Words: Aleczander Gamboa

Make your grand entrance to your wedding one to remember forever.

Hopefully, you only have to walk down the aisle once, so why not make your entrance a spectacular display of vivacious and colourful romance. Your wedding day is your most special day, so make it a big one! Here are some ideas for making the most out of your grand entrance for your ceremony or reception.

The flower girl: Throwing the petals down the aisle isn’t the only thing your cute and adorable flower girl is useful for, you could even use her role to create an atmosphere of anticipation before you enter. Nowadays, a growing trend in weddings is to have the flower girl or ring bearer walk down the aisle with a sign or banner saying, “Here comes the bride”. Wait a few minutes to increase anticipation and then arrive wearing your dazzling dress as you walk down to meet your groom.

A noble steed: If you like to be less traditional and more modern, perhaps consider arriving to the venue in a carriage with horses. This entrance is sure to set the romantic mood. If you like to be a little bit risky and love horses dearly, riding the horse down the aisle towards your husband-to-be instead of walking is also is sure to raise a few eyebrows in the crowd!

Be sentimental: Incorporating symbolism is an excellent way to personalise your wedding. If your first date was playing golf together at a theme park, why not arrive in a gorgeously adorned golf cart? Think about having a theme that resounds meaning for the both of you. For example, if you are both incredible fans of Star Wars, walk down the aisle with the theme song playing in the background, with storm troopers or Darth Vader giving you to your groom. If you love sports, have some people hold a banner for you to crash through while the audience cheers you on. Having a nice, romantic song playing in the background is all fine and good, but it is not grand and something that would be remembered.  

Aerial Ace: Everyone expects you arrive in front of the venue, so why not surprise them by arriving above the venue? If the ceremony or reception is outdoors, arriving by helicopter is perfect, and it is sure to leave a very long lasting impression with your guests.

Have a mini musical: Ever dreamed of having your own little Glee number in your wedding? Gather a group of your closest friends and family and create a special musically choreographed number as you walk down the aisle in chic and style. This idea is a good one to consider if you unsure with what song you want to have playing in the background. Perhaps think about having a marching band accompany you as you enter the reception with your newly wedded husband, or even an energetic choir to sing you joyous praises of love.
