Creative Wedding Themes: Winter Wonderland

There are lots of different themes you can use when you are planning a wedding, and as many different variations on those themes as there are brides and grooms to imagine them. Browsing through our online wedding store is an excellent way to get some great ideas for a theme you may want to use. 

That's what we did here at WhereBridesGo.com, and and it inspired us to imagine the possibilities for a "Winter Wonderland" wedding. Here are a few ideas to get your own creative juices flowing for a snowy celebration. 



Decorations
There are a few different color combinations that would work wonderfully for a winter wedding theme. The most obvious is lots and lots of white. The addition of shimmery sparkles gives you that gorgeous look of the sun reflecting off of freshly fallen snow. Silver is a beautiful accent color to use with white, and touches of gold can look lovely too. One other shade that we love with this theme is the addition of icy blues. If your wedding will take place…

10 Wedding Planning Myths... DEBUNKED! (Part 2)

Hopefully, you found last week's first 5 wedding planning tips concerning 10 common wedding myths helpful. This week WhereBridesGo.com is debunking the other half of the list for you.   




6. If you were a bridesmaid in her wedding, you must ask her to be one in yours.
We totally understand the urge to reciprocate a friend's invitation if you were a bridesmaid in her wedding, but if it means having more bridesmaids than you planned to or leaving out another friend you feel closer to, know that you don't have to do it. The people that you choose to stand up at your wedding with you is a personal choice, and it should never be a forced decision out of obligation or guilt. 

7. There has to be the same number of groomsmen as bridesmaids.
Sure, this makes the photos look more symmetrical, but other than that, there's really no reason to match the number of bridesmaids and groomsmen. You should have your dearest friends or family up there because you want them beside you when you …

10 Wedding Planning Myths... DEBUNKED! (Part 1)

There are preconceptions that you probably have about planning a wedding, and there are lots of people that will try to tell you exactly how things are supposed to be done... but that's just according to them, not necessarily a rule you are expected to follow. Today, WhereBridesGo.com will debunk the first 5 of 10 wedding myths you may have heard. 



1. Everything will go perfectly with the proper planning.
There are no guarantees in life, and due to the fact that you have no control over outside forces, you must realize that when it comes to your wedding, anything can happen! That doesn't mean that it will, but it CAN. 

One thing that you can do is to be prepared for emergencies. One way to do this is to pack a wedding day emergency kit filled with items that may come in handy in a variety of situations. The other thing that you can do is to remember that the most important thing about the day is that you're getting married to the person you love, and if the napkins show up iv…

5 Fun Things For Your Flower Girl To Carry

One of the sweetest parts of any wedding is that adorable flower girl that comes down the aisle announcing the arrival of the bride. There are many different ways that your flower girl can announce your big entrance, and today WhereBridesGo.com has 5 of our favorites to share with you. 


The Classic... Updated
Traditionally flower girls most often carry a basket full of rose petals to be dropped down the aisle for the bride to walk upon. This is still an excellent idea today, but if you're looking for something a little different, you don't have to fill that basket with flower petals. Pull some ideas from the season that you are getting married in, like using colored leaves in the fall, or shiny cut-out snowflakes at a winter wedding. For a musically-inspired ceremony, you could let your flower girl toss small paper hearts cut from the sheet music of your favorite love songs.

Instead of having her toss the petals from flowers, let her carry a bouquet of her own, just…
