    Wedding Traditions That You Simply Cannot Ignore

    Weddings anywhere around the world mean celebrations and happiness. This ceremony is not just about having fun and getting blessings from your near and dear ones. n every culture, at every corner of the world, there are specific traditions that everyone has to comply to. These traditions, which are now considered irrelevant, actually have a deep meaning seated in them. They have been a part of the culture for ages. In our time when it is difficult to grab a meal leisurely, many people consider that following these traditions will be nothing but a waste of time.

    Even though we have bid adieu to quite a few old traditions but there are still some of them whom we cannot ignore even in the modern-day weddings. Considering the meaning associated with these traditions, it is actually them that make a wedding more than any regular party. Let us see what all traditions have still managed to preserve themselves in the modern times.

    The stag party or the hen party

    The first and the foremost are the stag parties and the hen do. this one tradition has survived since a very long time and is still going strong. Stag parties and hen parties are probably the one tradition about which everyone is the most excited. Spending a gala time with their best friends, is something no groom or bride will ever bride. Now a day, these parties are not just restricted to a bar or a spa session, but people have begun going out on lavish trips before they finally enter their nuptial bond. These parties not only are meant for absolute fun, but the memories created in them are priceless.

    Wedding cake and wine

    This one is also still a compulsion in all the weddings. You remember the ‘purple wedding’ of King Geoffrey where he cuts the pie with his sword! It might be possible that having the wedding cake tradition is a modification to that since people like cakes more. After the wedding ceremony is over, the newly wed groom and the bride are supposed to cut the cake that symbolises their beginning in their marital bliss. From having a simple single layered cake to having a multi storey, fancy cake, anything is available in the market and you may choose it according to your budget and like.

    Wedding veil and the wedding dress

    The veil is an integral part of the bride’s dress. In the earlier times the bride’s face used to be covered with a veil to ward of evils and also it was considered to bring bad luck for the couple if the groom sees his bride’s face before the ceremony. Contemporarily, a wedding veil is probably considered just an inclusion in the gown to make it more beautiful. But people do still follow the tradition of having a veil.

    The wedding bouquet

    It is a long living tradition that the bride must carry a bouquet with her when she walks towards the altar for her ceremony. Later on, the bride is asked to throw the bouquet and whoever catches it, is considered the next one to get hitched. Well, maybe people did believe it in the olden times, but today probably it is only meant for fun in the wedding.

    Weddings all over the world are comprised of endless traditions that reflect our culture and beliefs. While we have lost most of them, the few of these traditions that have managed to stand through the test of time must not be ignored and incorporated in the wedding, even if only to have some more fun during the celebrations.

    Alternative Wedding Breakfast Feasts

    For any wedding, the food is an important element. You want your guests to be well looked after, and to go home happy and full of great-tasting food.

    When it comes to wedding breakfasts, there is far more choice than there used to be. Most venues are more than happy to be flexible which means you can adapt the food that you choose to better serve the tastes of you and your guests. Here are a few, slightly different approaches you could take:

    Alternative Wedding Breakfast Feasts

    Serve a hog roast

    Modern Hog Roast Machines are quite compact and can potentially be used indoors as well as outdoors. Importantly, you can cook far more than just whole hogs. The latest spit roasters can be used for beef or lamb joints as well as for gammon, whole turkeys, and chickens. Most people love the succulent, tasty meat that this style of cooking produces.

    Once cooked, everything can be served in a variety of ways. For a sit-down event, serving the meat sliced with a range of vegetables, sauces or gravy is a great approach. For a more casual wedding breakfast, the meat can be pulled from the bone and served in bread rolls or as part of a help-yourself-buffet.

    Hire some street vendors

    Another option for casual events is to invite a few of your favorite street vendors to set up their stalls and feed your guests. This is a great way to give everyone plenty of choice and ensure that you cater for all dietary needs.

    Do the catering yourself

    If you are on a tight budget and have a large enough home or garden, you could feed your guests yourself. With this option, you need to be organized and serve food that can be prepared well ahead of time. If you want to investigate this possibility this article is well worth reading. It is written by a couple who actually did their own wedding breakfast catering, so is full of practical advice.

    Serve up a luxurious garden party tea

    Garden party food usually goes down well. Think tasty sandwiches with the crusts cut off, trays of finger foods and miniature cakes. You need to serve it all on proper plates with nice cutlery and luxury drinks to make this style of food special enough for your wedding day.

    Opt for a beach party

    In some places, it is possible to hold your party on a beach. This can be a really special venue and opens up the opportunity for you to serve freshly barbecued fish and seafood. It is usually best to hire a private beach for this type of wedding reception. If you do choose this option, be sure to check whether you need a license.

    A sumptuous buffet

    Last, but by no means least, is a tasty buffet. This is perhaps the best way to make sure everyone gets to enjoy a good selection of food. Be sure to pay special attention to your elderly or infirm guests. You want them to be able to enjoy as much choice as everyone else. Usually, the other people on their table will automatically look after them. But, it is also wise to have a quiet word with someone on the table to make sure they are ready to step in and give them a hand, just in case.

    Say Thankyou to your Bridesmaids with Monsoon fragrances

    So your wedding day is approaching and your bridesmaids have been there every step of the way and you naturally want to buy them a gift that will say thankyou for their help and support, but won’t break the bank. Well Monsoon have some gorgeous gift ideas that would be perfect.

    Say Thankyou to your Bridesmaids with Monsoon fragrances

    Monsoon have a great selection of fragrance gifts for your wedding party. There are delicious smelling candles. I love the bergamot and fig one. Each Monsoon 180g candle comes housed in a stunning heavy glass container, depicting an iconic Monsoon metalwork pattern. This Monsoon candle has a spicy, oriental fragrance. With notes of neroli, mandarin, bergamot, grapefruit and lemon. The heart of sun dried figs is entwined with warm ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper. I could actually eat it (but don’t) it sounds so good. It also has a fab burn time of 36 hours.

    There is also a reed diffuser in the same fragrance which comes in a pretty glass jar. I have this in my house and it looks and smells great.

    Rose gold is bang on trend right now, and it looks like that trend is set to continue. Monsoon have introduced an eau de parfum called Rose Gold. Top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents are layered with velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen, and underpinned with base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber. It smells as good as it sounds and the bottle is stylish enough to grace any dressing table.

    Other gifts

    If you don’t want to buy a fragrance gift I adore the peacock mirror compact at Monsoon. It is definitely on my wish list if anyone in my family is reading this!

    Wedding Day Essentials for a Dapper-Looking Groom

    Are you a groom-to-be that wants to look dapper for your beautiful bride on your wedding day? Are you looking for hints and tips so that you look your best before for the big day? If you answered yes to either question, then step right this way.

    Wedding Day Essentials for a Dapper-Looking Groom

    On your wedding day, you want to strike the correct blend of formal and comfortable. While you want to look smart, you certainly don’t want to feel uncomfortable on what should be the happiest day of your life. With the right suit, shoes, accessories and preparation, you can achieve all of the above with minimal effort.

    Tailor-Made Suits for Ultimate Comfort

    While you may be tempted to plump for the off-the-peg option to keep costs down to a minimum, sometimes outlet sizes just don’t fit right. We all have a pair of trousers that come up too short in one size, but too long in the next and don’t even get us started about jackets.

    Getting your clothes made to measure means that they are made to fit you. On your wedding day, you just don’t want to be the groom with scuff marks on the bottom of your trousers or a jacket that you cannot button up. If you can’t splash out a little extra for your wedding day, when can you?

    Wedding Day Essentials for a Dapper-Looking Groom made to measure suit

    Tasteful Accessories

    To accompany your tailored suit, the groom has to have the right accessories to complement his wedding day attire. Designer jewellery such as Tateossian cufflinks, stylish chains and collar stiffeners all prove as equally fashionable as they are practical.

    Cufflinks provide the finishing touch to your shirt. While a chain with a pocket watch is a ludicrously stylish way to ensure that you get to the altar on time. A collar stiffener, it goes without saying, can either make or break your wedding photos. Could you imagine looking back on the wedding album and your eyes being drawn to a crinkled up collar?

    Wedding Day Essentials for a Dapper-Looking Groom cufflinks

    Shoes

    You have the suit and you have the bling, all that is left is to acquire the correct pair of shoes. Please, colour coordinate. A black suit and black/dark-coloured tie just shouldn’t be paired with brown shoes. Likewise, a brown tie shouldn’t be placed anywhere near black and white.

    For simplicity, it is very hard to go wrong with a pair of black shoes. We recommend that you wear them in for a few days before,. You don’t want to be riddled with blisters when up on the dancefloor. Ensure that your shoes are well-polished before the big day, who would want to marry someone with a scuff on their footwear?

    Lay Everything Out Before the Big Day

    Before you try to get to sleep the night before, make sure that everything that you need is neatly laid out for you to come to in the morning. If you are staying away from home before the wedding, ensure that all of your clothes are neatly packed.

    Hang up your suit and place your tie around the clothes hangar so as it doesn’t become lost overnight . Keep your shoes in a box to ensure they are looking fresh. This way, you can begin getting ready as soon as you wake up in the morning, or use the time to relax ahead of the nuptials.

    Avoid going out the night before the big day, as you will need your rest for the day ahead. Take it easy with friends, family members or just sit around on your around watching television.

    With all of the essentials in place, you are ready to go and get married!
