Bridal Gifts: Creative Ways to Relax on Your Wedding Day in New York Part 2

May 18, 2011

This is part 2 of our 2 part series on choosing gifts for your bridal party. For more suggestions on bridesmaids’ gifts, read part one here.

Creative Baskets
You know your bridesmaids’ tastes and the things they like and don’t like. Find elegant baskets from a local craft store, or shop and fill them up with some of their favorite scents. If one of the girls likes roses, create a basket stuffed with rose potpourri, rose scented candles, bar soap and body spray. Place fake roses in the basket for an extra touch. Your bridesmaids will feel special that you took the time to create a personalized basket tailored to each of them.

Ride in Style
A relaxing, reflective day with you and your bridesmaids is the perfect way to create a sense of calmness and just enjoy each other’s company before the big festivities. Offer to pay for the limo transportation on the day of the wedding in NYC so the girls can get dressed together and minimize wrinkling of their dresses.

Maybe you want to include taking everyone to the ceremony, from the ceremony to reception and then home after the reception. Ask your limo service in New York if you can save money with a pickup/drop off service only.

Choosing the right gift for your bridesmaids doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just be creative and thoughtful. Your bridesmaids aren’t participating in your wedding to receive a gift; they are standing by your side because they love you.  Don’t fuss over the details. They know how much you appreciate them.

Bridal Gifts: Creative Ways to Relax on Your Wedding Day in New York Part 1

May 11, 2011

The sun is shining, the warm breeze is blowing, all the details are taken care of – it’s a perfect day for a wedding in New York City, and your bridesmaids are standing right next to you.

You want to make sure they know how thankful you are for all of their help. They’re close friends and family, so you don’t want to give them anything they won’t enjoy.

Here are a few suggestions:

Sparkling Jewelery
Weddings are all about creating beautiful lasting memories, so give your bridesmaids jewelery that have meaning. Heart-shaped Cubic Zirconia jewelry serves as a reminder that the day is a celebration of two people uniting in love. Or, you can opt for a tennis bracelet or necklace instead if some of the girls don’t wear earrings. With Cubic Zirconia stones instead of diamonds, you can buy bridesmaid jewelry that looks expensive, but is within your price range.

Comfortable Feet
When it comes to bridal shoes, you want them to be comfortable and special. Nice shoes can get expensive, so perhaps offer to purchase all your bridesmaids shoes. Not only will everyone match, but it will be a sweet gesture of your thanks.

A fun alternative to flat bridal shoes are personalized flip flops for the reception. It will be a relief for you and your bridesmaids to slip into stylish, comfortable flip flops embroidered with your names. Look for ones with cushy heels that were made to dance the night away.

From Flowers to Limos: 4 Dos and Don’ts for a Summer Wedding in NYC

June 17, 2010

Book a vintage Rolls Royce wedding limo for your special day in NYC.

According to, 13% of weddings take place in June, which make it the second most popular month for weddings. The third and fourth most popular months are July and August. There are plenty of reasons why many people would like to get married in the summer; the weather’s nice, you can have an outdoor wedding, and it’s easier for out-of-town guests to make it to the event. However there are some downfalls of summer weddings, like the heat, the bugs and the potential summer rain. To prevent potential problems, from the limos being late to the flowers wilting, here’s a list of dos and don’ts for a summer wedding in NYC.

Do choose light clothing. No bride wants to be sweating in her dress with her makeup running down her face on her wedding day. Choose a light fabric that breathes, such as silk for a summer wedding, especially if it’s going to be outdoors. Many brides have been choosing shorter skirts lately, which is perfect for a summer wedding. The groom should wear a light linen suit and nice leather sandals. For an even more relaxed look (perhaps for a beach wedding), the groom can wear khakis and a button-down shirt and the bride can wear a fancy sun dress.

Don’t choose flowers that will wilt in the heat. Choose hearty flowers with a waxy texture such as Hawaiian blooms like orchids. Ginger halcyons, birds-of-paradise, and tiger lilies will survive the heat as well. Some brides choose water-submerged flower centerpieces featuring orchids. These keep cool underwater all day so wilting is not an issue.

Do remember to book a superior limos for your wedding day in NYC. Since summer weddings are very popular, the best and most popular limo companies book dates several weeks to months in advance. To make sure you have the dream limo for your wedding, book as early as possible. For an intimate and romantic experience, reserve a vintage Rolls Royce wedding limo just for you and the groom.

Don’t forget to provide shade or A/C for your guests. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, a shaded seating area is a must. Some tent rentals include portable A/C units which is great for guests who are all sitting close to each other on a hot summer day. People are not in the mood to party when they’re too hot and uncomfortable; you don’t want your crowd to turn on you or have the only memory of your wedding be “it was so hot!” Make sure there’s bottled water scattered around the event site and don’t schedule your wedding to begin midday because that’s when the sun is the hottest. Instead, schedule dinner for sunset and plan everything else around that.

Following these tips will help you plan the best summer wedding possible and prevent any potential problems before they arise. Remember to plan ahead to avoid unnecessary stress and enjoy the beautiful gifts this season will bring you and your new spouse.
