How modern wedding differ from old?

Talk about weddings today and what comes to mind first are the wedding dresses, wedding cake, marital vows, parties and celebrations with family and friends. Before we got here, weddings were not as much as wedding dresses, parties and all. Different cultures today have their different wedding norms and formalities. In the Feudal days for instance, weddings did not even have a priest, neither did they have any witnesses. The modifications came as there arose need to concretize the union, making things more formal and binding. Before long, it became vital that a priest blesses the couple and then it was signed in that a priest before some witnesses must conduct the joining of the couple. 

The attires and makeup of the bride back in the day also differed significantly from the latest designer wedding dresses or the latest facial makeups and hairdo of today’s brides. It was more or less cruder than whatever is on display today. The bride will have special paintings as makeups on her. Some cultures even insist the lady must bleach her hair while for some others she and her maids must to braid their hair in a special way. Some of these appear crude yet they are still in practice even today. 

The kind of family the bride comes from also influences the rites she must undergo during her wedding. For the very rich, the woman will have a hot bath and then special oils and creams rubbed on her. If she came from a poor family, she would not have the hot nice bath but must be perfumed in a bid to suppress the dirt. Her apparel could range from fine silks, silver or gold embroideries to plain and well lit fabrics. For the men, their wedding dresses were very fine materials with furs ad belts.

The colour of the wedding dresses were also as significant as today’s. The bride today usually wears white or cream coloured gowns, which stands for purity. While the significance of purity still stands, the colour then was blue rather than white. For those who did not wear blue gowns they would wear some blue accessory on her; a blue scarf of ribbon. 

The Social stratum is very evident in the weddings back in medieval ages. Poor families who might not be able to afford the costly fine apparel might just resort to wearing the nicer looking everyday dresses. They might also not afford the castle setting weddings of those from noble homes. The partying and eating after today’s weddings is also similar to the ancient weddings with friends, families, dancers, singers and musicians all in full attendance.  

In conclusion, one thing that has not changed despite the changing times is that most weddings of those from wealthy families were rarely built on love and affection between the couple. The families usually arrange the marriages; the rich rarely marry from poor families. Such tactics rarely result in happy peaceful homes; it never did then and it never does today.

Beach Wedding Bridesmaid Dresses

Beach wedding bridesmaid dresses should be a bit more casual than those worn in traditional wedding ceremonies. Long white robes are replaced by short-length dresses, and colors have a tendency to go with a beach-themed palette including shades of blue, green, and peach. The neatest thing about beach wedding bridesmaid dresses is they are freely available in most department shops and do not need to be acquired thru bridal shops, saving you giant time and money.

When attempting to find beach wedding bridesmaid dresses, search for styles that don't touch the sand. Bridesmaids can still look chic in short-length dresses that let them simply walk on the beach. Look for light-weight fabrics such as silk, organza, crepe, linen or chiffon. The bridesmaids' dresses should complement whatever the bride is wearing.

Most beach wedding bridesmaid dresses have spaghetti straps or halter tops. If the dresses are strapless, the bride should order matching wraps to guard them from the scorching heat or occasional drizzle.

Heels are a no-no in beach weddings. They are hard to stroll on and they get stuck in the sand. Beach wedding bridesmaid dresses are best complemented with strappy sandals. If you are wearing a more casual design, go for trendy flip flops or go barefoot.

Our DIY EBay Wedding

As a frugal mum/crafter to start with this was never going to be a fancy cookie cutter wedding.

In all honesty I never wanted chair covers or all those silly little other things you see at so many weddings.

I wanted something different.

So finding the right venue was HARD!!

We went EVERYWHERE in our area, finally ended up at our local pub sulking saying 'we're never going to find anything that fits us!' Little did I realize our local pub that we just LOVE to eat at was going to be the perfect location!

The George IV pub.

It's a little old sandstone 1800's sandstone, cobblestone, motorbike pub that has the most charming rustic, vintage hall out the back that is just the perfect setting for our rustic country vintage wedding!!! All with our very own private courtyard, that I can't wait to decorate!  And the food is just to die for! It's amazing!! (And I'm still trying to convince Steve that we can totally add a platter of Joes fantabulous chicken snitzel burgers to our wedding menu lol)

Done! First thing organized and booked!

Been so busy organizing, making, booking and ordering I've been forgetting to share!!

I've made so many different things (mostly inspired by Pinterest and google) so I've decided to do separate posts for each thing.

I've made all our table decorations myself, our invitations, the table clothes, the signs, our bridal table skirting, the bridal table back drop, the chair sashes, the candle holders and a few more things as well which I'm sure I'll forget to include.

As we go along I'll include the original idea or original Pinterest post so you can see where I took my inspiration from and see what I came up with as well :)

The next thing to get done was to order my wedding dress!!

HELLO EBay!! I found this cute little store based out of China that will make the dress of your dreams from a picture exactly to your measurements. Perfect!!

6 weeks and $150 later I had my dress!!

A much better price that what I could get here in Australia. The bridal shops were quoting me $2500, and I just couldn't justify to myself spending more on my wedding dress than I did for my car!

Sorry you don't get to see pics of that until after the wedding! Haha

Next was the bridesmaids. We went out shopping to find what sort of style was going to suit all my girls and was quoted $350-$400 for the dresses I picked. NO sorry!! Lol

We got online and found a store called got the dresses from there! $140 made to measure plus $25 postage. PERFECT! Only slight alterations are needed and they are good to go!

Here's my daughter Julia in hers lol

Absolutely perfect!

Ok that will do for now! Need to get the kids ready for school!

Happy scrapping!

Love Renee

Bridesmaids won't steal the spotlight of brides

Participate in Sisterhood’s wedding is a big thing. As bridesmaid you should be polite and thoughtful to set off the bride but not totally disgraced brilliance. Maybe you look forward to reproduce the movie plot, getting her bouquet at the wedding and encounter prince. Here, the recommendations may give you some inspiration.

The dress of the bridesmaid
Bride usually wears white wedding dress with veil and shining jewelry. As bridesmaids, the most intimate personal people, you should be natural and able to sense this: the bride wants their bridesmaids around are beautiful and add luster to their own, but they definitely do not want to become a supporting role on her wedding day. 
This makes it a little difficult on the choice of dress. Looking at the U.S. trademark weddings, the bridesmaid dresses are often not more than the color below: pale pink, nude color, purple color. These are calm and elegant color tunes. The reason on the one hand is the low purity of these colors, making it not too conspicuous in the crowd. On the other hand, it makes the bridesmaid not be quirks and well match with bridal white silk. The style is usually dominated by the knee skirts, formal and not too sexy.  And compared with the bride’s luxury wedding dress, it will be not too eye-catching. But it can set off the bridesmaid’s confidence and elegance at the same time. You will win the same praise.
If the bride has selected a series of dresses for the bridesmaid, the sisters can worry-free. You will not be deemed to worry about the selection affect feelings. With a pair of decent and elegant high heels, or a delicate little necklace is enough to match your dresses.

Behavior of the bridesmaid
Do not think that bridesmaids need only carry the handbag and make up for bridal at any time. Or at most, you two whisper a secret and talk about the boudoir things. Bridesmaids need to be smooth and slick. There is an important task for bridesmaids that they must be respond groomsmen group witty when waiting for the ceremony. Then the bridesmaids also play an important role in the ceremony toast in protecting the bride and stopping wine is a great responsibility.
The Western-style wedding demands for even more stringent etiquette. Bridesmaid, being graceful, observes the bride’s dress, if there is a need, you should adjust immediately. The wedding process must be learned by your heart. When bridal is too excited and panic, you need to remind her precautions of the dressing up and playing games. The bridesmaid is a veritable “housekeeper.”
And when speaking, you should always be polite and modesty, because as the bridesmaids, your image and temperament will affect impression of the bride or even this couple in relatives’ hearts. A good positive image not only add luster for the sisters, but also is noticed by an individuals in a corner. Maybe it is the beginning of a beautiful romance.

TIPS for the bridesmaids:
One, the makeup is simple and generous, not to charming beautiful.
Two, try to talk with the bride elegantly. Minimize the whispers during wedding ceremony process, keeping a serious venue.
Three, before the wedding, communicate with groomsmen groups to understand the specific wedding process, avoid scene problems.
Four, the last but not the least, you should try to keep about one meter’s distance with the bride and be ready to help solve temporary problems.
