Real Irish Weddings: a Midsummer Night/'s Dream for ...

Michelle, from Kent, met Jonathan, from Belfast, through a mutual friend when she was studying at Trinity College in Dublin.After their second meeting - nearly a year later - the pair became close and would travel up and down to spend weekends together until Michelle was able to make the move to Belfast when she finished college.Jonny proposed to Michelle when they took a trip with friends to Coll, in the Scottish Hebrides, to ring in New Year's Eve 2013. While on a morning walk, Michelle was busy taking photos and when she made her way back to Jonny he got down on one knee and took out his great-grandmother's ring.The couple opted for a civil ceremony, choosing Limepark in Antrim as a venue for both ceremony and reception."We wanted a unique venue. We fell in love with the place the first time we went to see it," says Michelle.The pair held the ceremony in the Gallery Room of Limepark as bad weather in the lead up to the day put them off their original plan of a garden ceremony. Opting for a modern rustic theme, Michelle styled the wedding herself, sourcing table decorations like candles, picture frames and bunting, painting jam jars collected with the help of her family, and baking the wedding cake and macarons herself, while graphic designer Jonny designed beautiful stationary and signs.After the wedding Michelle and Jonny enjoyed their honeymoon break in Thailand for two weeks.Irish Independent

Indian Summer: the Ultimate Guide to Outdoor Entertaining
With the great British summer finally upon us, now's the moment to look at chic outdoor entertaining ideas.From ornate table decorations to luxe lighting and colourful furniture, eating al fresco has never been more appealing. With their jewel-covered canopies inspired by the nomadic tents of India and Morocco, the Battersea-based Raj Tent Club - a favourite with the fashion set - has been bringing glamour to garden parties for more than 20 years.Here, founder Nicky Marks forecasts the season's most colourful outdoor trends. Time to ditch that white plastic gazebo...'A wooden trestle is a timeless investment, while accessories canbe easily changed based on seasonal trends,' says Marks. Use bold cushions and linens to zhuzh up your tables. Marks sources hers from artisans based in India, but brands such as Suki Cheema, Bonnie and Neil (at Liberty), Once Milano and A Rum Fellow offer cheerful alternatives. Do away with the plastic and lay your table with 'thali-style' plates and utensils; these copper trays, (below, from £19.50) will last well past the summer. For your centrepiece, look to florist Juliet Glaves (@julietglaves) for inspiration. A regular collaborator with Designers Guild and Temperley London, she favours 'home-grown, wild British blooms in one statement arrangement', using poppies, buttercups and cow parsley varieties.'These blue-and-white tent panels are a reimagining of palace panels in Jaipur where there is a lot of blue and white pottery,' explains Marks. To bring regal splendour to your own garden, think accent pieces usually found inside. Jonathan Adler is the go-to place for playful pottery and his Utopia rangeadds a little levity to your average fruit bowl or vase. Rugs can also be employed outside to grand effect. While 'dhurrie' or 'kilim' flatweave rugs are a safe bet - see Amy Kent and Oliver Bonas for modern takes or OKA for classic versions - an embellished Moroccan wedding blanketfrom RTC's own collection will transform a drab patio or terrace space and doubles up nicely as a throw for the bedroom.If the current offering on the high street is anything to goby, 2016 is the year that rattan got cool again. 'It has a touch of glamorous 1960s California to it,' says Marks. Stalwarts such as Habitat and Urban Outfitters have framed their summer collections around this retro material; for the Raj Tent spin, pair with intricately embroidered soft furnishings or a traditional Jalli-printed parasol.The RTC cotton version can be used with or without a cumbersome base, ideal for Londoners with tiny terraces.Follow us on Facebook and Twitter: @EsMagOfficial
Beach Theme Wedding Decorations: Bring the Sun and Sand for the Ultimate Event
There is something to be said about the romantic feel of a beach wedding. The sand, the candles, and the tropical flare can certainly add a romantic, but personal touch to your wedding. If you are hosting a beach theme wedding, the decorations can make or break your idea. No matter the location of your wedding, beach or not, the decorations need to follow suit.Flowers Though in most weddings the flowers are the star of the show, in a beach theme wedding they should actually be used as an accent. After all, the beach is not teeming with flowers. The flowers you do use will be determined by the route you are taking with your theme. Tropical themes should use bright tropical flowers such as orchids, bird of paradise, or plumerias. A more traditional beach wedding needs to use neutral colored flowers that are classified as "romantic blooms", such as roses, calla lilies, hydrangea,or peonies. Pair your flowers in arrangements with sand, sea shells or netting, and try to use flowers sparingly.Centerpieces and Table Decorations Your table decorations are the focal point of the reception. Your guests spend a large amount of their time at their table, so you need the decorations to follow your theme. Beach theme wedding table decorations need to also follow the direction of your theme - tropical or traditional. Tropical themed weddings should use bright colored tablecloths accompanied by a neutral table runner. For example, bright green table cloths can be paired with ivory runners. Traditional beach themes should stick to neutral or pastel colored table linens, such as a baby blue tablecloth paired with an ivory runner. Centerpieces can be as simple as a platter full of sea shells, or more elaborate, such as hurricane vases filled with sand, sea shells and candles. Use place card holders that resemble sea shells or tropical fish. Tie off napkins with sea shell napkin rings or sailor's rope to finish off the setting.Wedding Cake The wedding cake is always an important item in any wedding. You want your cake to follow your overall theme by using decorations that are similar to those on the tables. For example, a tropical beach theme can use a bright green fondant cake decorated with tropical flowers that cascade down the side. A more traditional wedding can use an ivory cake with gumpaste seashells placed on each tier. Surround the cake with faux sand made of brown sugar, seashells, and candles to give it a more romantic look. You can even write your names in a heart in the sand, just as if you were at the beach!Ceremony Decorations Give your guests a first glance into the wedding theme by decorating the ceremony with beach theme wedding decorations as well. For a tropical wedding, keep the ceremony bright. For example, dress the pews with tulle, tropical flowers, and fisherman's net. Use garlands of tropical flowers and organza to drape over archways as a finishing touch. For a ceremony at dusk, use tulle laced with sea shells to swag on the back of pews, and add hurricane lamps with sea shell candles at the end of each pew to create a more romantic feel to the entire event.
Nautical Table Decorations for Weddings
One of the most appealing styles of decorations for a wedding is a nautical theme. Always crisp and classic, nautical elements look fantastic at weddings, whether they are near the water or landlocked. These are suggestions on nautical table decorations to use at your own wedding.When you think nautical, think crisp, clean, classic, and fresh. Choose one or two main colors around which to plan your entire wedding theme. Great choices for a seaside style include navy, red, yellow, and white. Everything should have clean uncluttered lines, and you can have fun introducing a nautical motif as well. For instance, the ideal bridesmaid attire would be a strapless navy dress in a crisp cotton with a white sash and a pearl tin cup necklace. If you really want to emphasize the nautical theme, replace the white sash with a thin rope sash (keep the tin cup necklace, which looks great either way).Nautical table decorations should always be unfussy and unfrilly. Starting with the table linens, navy blue tablecloths with a white band at the hem would be great. Pair them with either a solid white napkin, or a blue, white, and yellow striped napkin. Roll the napkin up and tie it with a piece of rope or slip a braided rope napkin ring over it (they look like those preppy rope knot bracelets). Alternatively, you could use pewter napkin rings adorned with anchor charms.Your menu cards and place cards should always tie in with your theme. Place cards can be fairly simple for a nautical wedding; a white card with a navy border and an embossed anchor or shell would be great. For the menu cards, a coordinating paper can be used, or get creative and use nautical maps as the background for your menus. Old map prints are often very pale, and it is no problem to print over them legibly. Or go with a nautical flag motif for both the place cards and the menu. The flags can be printed across the top of the stationery; choose ones which spell out something significant, such as l-o-v-e, or the initials of the newlyweds.The centerpieces are always the main design element of a wedding reception. The crisp style of a nautical wedding lends itself to simple floral arrangements in a single color. White, yellow, and red tend to be the best colors for the flowers, and select classic blossoms like roses or hydrangeas. To play up the nautical theme, one great centerpiece idea is to set a large hurricane lantern in the center of each table. Fill the hurricane with a large white pillar candle, and surround it with a floral wreath in your favorite color.The final decorative accent for your reception tables is the wedding favors. There are plenty of fantastic options for a nautical theme wedding. Wine charms in the shape of anchors or ship's wheels, cookies shaped like ships, and votive candles in a sea breeze scent will all tie in with a nautical theme and add another element of style to your wedding tables. With all of the elements in place, your nautical table decorations are sure to look amazing!

Jenn, who works as a midwife, also manged to make a profit onher Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes, which she had bought in Selfridges brand new (albeit on sale) for£70, and sold second-hand on eBay for£84 - making a 20 per cent profit.She also sold her husband Matt's wedding suit, and the best man's outfit, too.A long-time user of eBay, Jenn also bought many itemsfor the wedding second-hand, including the table decorations,and was able to pocket extra savings by earning cashback on purchases made by usingTopcashback.co.uk.Members can earn up to one per cent cashback on purchases made on eBay through the cashback site, boosting the bride and groom's savings before the weddinghad even started.Much of the food shopping for the wedding was also bought through the cashback website, Jenn said, as Topcashback members can save on grocery shops at all the major supermarkets.Ocado, Tesco and Asda, for instance, offer up to £6.90 cashback on food spends of£25 or more."I never buy anything unless it's through a cashback website," Jenn said, "it enables me to earn even more money, and makes me buy from brands that I probably wouldn't have bought from before." Whether saving money before the wedding, through cashback websites and buying second-hand goods, or after the wedding by flogging your matrimonial goods, there are easy ways to cut costs.Below are five ways you can save cash on your big day, from DIY-ing wedding cakes, to getting wed mid-week.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Engagement Table Decorations Ideas

Please help be a part of my success by giving your opinion!?I would have like to spend list of photos and toasting glasses and wedding serving set. Those things can be pretty pricey.I wish you all the luck in the world. It sound like your going to have a wonderful store that most brides and grooms dream about.CONGRATS!------6. Good website for affordable wedding ideas???I used the American Wedding Album. I was able to get some really good ones ata good price along with response cards and reception cards. Search the website and see what I mean. Congratulations!!------7. I'm having an Enchanted Secret Garden themed wedding. The colors are pink and green. Does anyone have ideas?First, congrats on your engagement- what a wonderful journey!!Second, my first thought was a secret garden tea party theme. You could go many ways with that but going either whimsical or vintage would be my suggestion. My fave centerpiece idea for you is super easy, affordable, and charming- simply use antique china (from your china cabinet or even an antique or thrift store) and fill them with soft, romantic, vintage-esque flowers like pink roses and peonies. You can arrange them at different heights and combinations on each different table. You can even add something sweet into a few of them- gold wrapped chocolate candies are great throw backs.Or, if you want to go whimsical, try using oversized mugs (you can pick them up at the 99 cent store) and add a few found objects to the mix like candle holders, top hats, or sparkling accents from your local craft store. If you place different elements at different heights on the table it will add a bit of a fairytale feel.Also, along with pics and directions for these projects, we've got TONS more wedding ideas on our website !!

Does anyone have any unique wedding ceremony and reception ideas?I just did a wedding that took place in the middle of a field. It was very romantic and sweet. Below is the blog post with the pics if you're interested. As for the reception, I would say pick a theme that reflects your personality and add elements that make it unique to you as a couple! Congratulations!.------9. How bad does this sound? Please help!mabe get him to go with you to a dance studio and the both of you learn one slow dance together. that way your guest will have something to do rather than stand around and look at e ach other!------10. How does this sound for an engagement idea?Just be sure you are both on the same page. If you've not been together long it might freak him out. If you know he feels the same way then go for it.------11. Anybody with creative ideas to decorate this venue?I don't think I could come up with a better idea than what Shelly F. said. The pink or blue shirt under a button up shirt is the cutest idea I have ever heard about revealing the sex of your baby. I think you should go with that. Good luck! My son was born in March, and so was I! What a great month to have a baby! :-).------12. Is it normal to just be "over" the wedding during the wedding planning process?yes, gay, strait, or otherwise wedding planing can be tedious. You may consider just having a smaller wedding and maybe renting out a room at a nice place for dinner with friends instead of a big reception------13. I'm having a Hawaiin themed Engagement party. Any ideas?balloons aren't particularly hawaiian. but you know what is? pearl harbor. i'll give you a dollar if you have japanese kamikaze airplanes and such. that'd be awesome. those 180 people would never forget it------14. I have a few questions about my bridal business. Please help be a part of my success by giving your opinion?sure you can purchase products off of ebay and resell or rent.But to be honest, your business plan seems weak. You say money is no object because you have "your job". But your job goes away if you are opening a fulltime bridal boutique that also offers wedding planning services (even if you don't have the planning services, your job goes away).The business seems termendously expensive to operate, just the different staff you are going to need is going to be costly - wedding gown expert, jeweler, inventory control/accountant, general staff, etc.I think you need to re-evaluate your business plan and remember it's a business, just not about the fun of planning a wedding.------15. Wedding Flowers Real of Fake?I wouldnt have real flower bouquets.Pollen etc...Honestly, I would probably go for all fake but good quality flowers.I recently bought some roses, they were 2 each and they are beautiful.------16.

Do you think a casino theme engagement party will offend some of our religious guest?I would not like, honest answer. Engagement parties might be o.k. they are usually less formal, but still if you have religious family that would attend, not a good idea------21. Parents paying for sister's wedding but not mine?I agree with "An education". If it were me, I would call my parents on their ridiculous behaviour and they wouldn't be invited. My parents would NEVER treat any of their children like that - just because they're your parents doesn't mean you can't demand they treat with respect and kindness. This is an insult and it shows blatant favourtism.------22.

Engagement party questions? Worst experiences, and ideas please?Most of the bad things I've seen associated with weddings were situations that were unpredictable malfunctions or people behaving badly. There isn't too much you can do to prevent either.Since there aren't too many light blue flowers available, use that color for your centerpiece container. White calla lilies or white spider mums can give a modern look with flowers. I've seen some small twigs with battery powered tiny lights on them that could add some sparkle.------24.
