Theme weddings can be absolutely stunning. However, they have to be done right or it could just turn into a huge disaster. Fortunately for you, I'm going to outline three awesome trends for weddings this year, and give you some ideas!
1. Eco-Friendly Wedding
Keeping the Earth green has been huge over the last few months, and an eco-friendly wedding won't only be beautiful, but it'll make you feel great! This wedding will have lots of earthy tones - greens, browns, pastel-y colours to match wild flowers. Your décor will also reflect your theme with [...]
Celebrations with Modern Flair
Casual, yet experience-rich parties with unexpected drink choices like light beer cocktails make all things wedding easy to enjoy while keeping couples on track to looking their best on the big day.
Molson Canadian 67 and Tara O'Grady, a wedding expert and owner of Toronto-based Bliss Events, have created four fun, stylish pre-wedding celebration themes showcasing a variety of low-calorie cocktails that are anything but traditional.

My favourite thing about a wedding is that they reflect the relationship between the Bride and the Groom. If you're beach bums, a beach destination wedding is what to have; if you're religious, a traditional church wedding. Really, the possibilities are endless. For me, though, I'm a classic Canadian who loves the mountains, and I can't think of a better place to go than Waterton National Park for a nice, small wedding.
The thing about Waterton is that it's not overcrowded. As much as I love Banff and Jasper, I want my day [...]
With Fly Away Weddings & Honeymoons, you have the peace of mind that you and your guests are getting the best value. They can arrange travel from almost any major city that your guests are coming from, even if it is from more than one location. They can also provide group rates as well as individual travel for late additions to the wedding guest list. Their contacts in destination allow them to provide you with special extras that you would not normally receive from a standard travel agent.
1. Plan Early: I suggest starting to plan your honeymoon a few months after you start planning your wedding. This is an extra special vacation.
2. Decide on budget, length of stay, preferred destination(s) and type of honeymoon: There are so many options for honeymoon trips. It can be that relaxing trip with pristine beaches, or it can be a biking trip through Tuscany or a small group touring trip through India or a luxury cruise. What type of honeymoon defines you as a couple and is an experience you would cherish together?
3. Consult [...]
Weddings can be expensive, so many brides are turning to DIY flower options to save a little money. It gives you a chance to let your creative juices flow and to add a personal touch to your decor. Plus, it gives you more freedom when choosing the flower types and accessories.
For centerpieces, you don't have to stick to flowers alone. Branches, twigs, vines, and even dried wheat can be used depending on the time of year and your theme. Spice them up with decorative crystals, textured spray paint, or satin ribbons. You can [...]
