Marco and Arminda’s Cool Glamor Wedding

We had the privilege of working on creating the wedding of Marco and Arminda. This beautiful couple’s wedding used the cool colors of blue and silver for a glamorous look.

Their church ceremony was given minimal decoration, as the venue itself was breathtaking with its artwork. Each aisle was marked by a simple vase holding a candle.

This minimalist decor was carried over to their reception, where it was given a bit of bling.

For their florals, Marco and Arminda chose arrangements of hydrangeas and roses. These blooms were used both in bouquets and in the tall silver vase centerpieces.

To add an extra element of glitz, the reception included touches of mirror and crystals. Both of these caught the blue light of the room and the flickering light of the candles for a great effect.

Marco and Arminda’s top table put them in a regal standing with white throne-like seats. The shape of these thrones was also mirrored in their beautiful square-tiered wedding cake.

How To Start Your Wedding Planning

He’s asked and you’ve said yes. You have a gorgeous engagement ring. Now, though, comes the hard work of planning the perfect wedding. Do you know where to begin?

The best way to start your wedding planning is to find a professional wedding planner. Look for somebody who knows the ins and outs of planning the perfect Toronto wedding.

A Toronto wedding planner can work with you to start determining the big aspects of your dream wedding. This includes choosing a date (or narrowing it down to a few possible dates) and choosing a theme or overall style of wedding.

You won’t need to work out all the details just yet, but having a big picture is a good way to start. However, if there are some details that you know you absolutely want included, they can help form the basis of your theme and overall design.

Another big step in your wedding planning, and one that should happen early in the process, is setting your budget. Figuring out what you can afford to spend may not be the most fun part of planning, but it is easily one of the most important. Knowing your budget will make all of your wedding planning go much easier, too.

Top 10 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

A wedding planner is an essential part of any successful wedding. If you’re planning your big day, you might be wondering just what a wedding planner can do and why you should hire one. Here are the top ten reasons to work with a professional Toronto wedding planner.

1. A wedding planner will help you make your dream wedding a reality, not a nightmare. This is because a wedding planner knows how to create all the elements necessary for that dream come true.

2. A wedding planner can help you secure the best venues. Wedding planners have special relationships with all the best Toronto wedding venues and can often help you book a venue that you didn’t think was possible or a hidden gem you didn’t even know existed.

3. A wedding planner can help you stay on budget. Whatever you wedding budget, you need to stick to it. With industry discounts and an eye on doing things right the first time, a planner can keep you on target.

4. A wedding planner will make sure nothing is overlooked. From flowers to the best man’s thank you gift, a wedding planner knows every last thing you’ll need for the perfect wedding.

5. A wedding planner will keep your stress levels down on your wedding day. You might still be nervous about walking down the aisle, but a wedding planner will ensure you don’t have to be worried about whether the caterer has put the cake in the right place.

6. A wedding planner can help you organize a wedding from afar. If you want a Toronto wedding but live too far away to do the day-to-day work required to plan it, a wedding planner can work on your behalf.

7. A wedding planner will let you keep up with your regular life. Wedding preparations can quickly take over every last second of your life. A wedding planner will help you carry on with all the things you enjoy doing, and will keep your wedding from interfering with your work.

8. A wedding planner serves as a referee in any planning battles. Whether it’s between you and your fiance, you and your mother, or you and a vendor, your planner can help mediate any disagreements that might arise.

9. A wedding planner offers advice based on experience. This is your first wedding, but your wedding planner has been through this many, many times. Using a planner’s experience can make things go smoother.

10. A wedding planner can be there every step of the way. Planning a wedding is a long process, from choosing the invitation style to sending out thank you cards. A wedding planner is somebody you can rely on from start to finish.
