1.  Sequins, Sequins and More Sequins

We’re always looking for an excuse to wear sequins and a New Year’s Eve wedding is pretty much the epitome of sparkle and shine. Channel your inner golden girl and have your bridesmaids wear sequined dresses. The glitz and glamour of it all will make them feel extra special and it’ll look amazing next to your classic white gown in photos. Plus, your bridesmaids will be extra grateful to you for letting them have a gown that they can actually wear again!

2. Countdown In Style

We love the idea of having a clock as the centerpiece of each table so that guests can count down to midnight together.

3. Skip Your Standard Photobooth 

A NYE wedding gives you the opportunity to have some photo fun with balloons. Have your guests hold balloons from the past year for photos and then at midnight let them go to symbolically “let go” of the past year.

4. A Timeless Cake 

Take a departure from your typical tiered cake and instead opt for something that ties in with your New Years theme. Not only is this cake a real showstopper, but it also makes a great Instagram moment for your guests… who doesn’t love a good ‘gram moment?

5. Make an Exit

Hand out sparklers for each guest to light the way as you leave your reception. It definitely beats having rice thrown at you, and it makes for a pretty amazing photo.

Play into your holiday theme by having New Year’s resolutions on the table cards. These can be serious, inspiring or funny depending on your and your future husbands’ personality. They’re a fun way to tie in your theme and to give guests some food for thought or a conversation starter at dinner!

9. Make it Themed

Halloween doesn’t have to be your only excuse to dress up; your NYE wedding can double as a masquerade party, too! We love a good themed wedding and this one takes the cake for one of our all-time favorites. Let your guests know to dress the part in your wedding invitation and have masquerade masks at each person’s chair so that everyone can take part in the fun.

How to Set a Proper Dinner Table

Setting a proper dinner table is always one of those adulting tasks that seem far more daunting than it actually is. While you might be stressing out wondering if you need to buy all new china, or where exactly the soup spoons should go, no need to worry. With a few key serving pieces in your arsenal and our setting instructions, you’ll be prepared to host a dinner party in no time!

Tableware:

The first step in setting a proper table is having the right china. China is often the centerpiece of your wedding registry, so if you’re married or engaged, you’re likely familiar with adding these pieces to your registry. When it comes to china, you’re either talking about formal or causal dinnerware dishes. Formal or fine china includes bone china and porcelain, whereas casual china is usually earthenware or stoneware and is a less expensive option. Many sources will tell you that couples should buy two sets, one set of formal and one set of casual for everyday use. This really depends on your plans. If you plan on hosting formal dinner parties often, it’s a good idea to invest in some high quality china, whereas if you tend to lean on the more casual side of things and plan on only having friends over for a small gathering every once and awhile, there’s no need to invest in formal china.

Key Pieces:

Place settings usually come in four- or five- piece sets. The four-piece is usually a casual china set and includes a dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, soup/cereal bowl, and mug. The five-piece set, typically for formal china, includes a dinner plate, salad/dessert plate, bread plate, and a cup and saucer. Some additional serving items you might want to consider are a large and small platter, two to three serving bowls of various sizes, a gravy boat, a cream pitcher and sugar bowl, a teapot, some small serving dishes of various sizes and shapes, soup bowls, and chargers. You’ll also want to make sure you have the appropriate water and wine glasses, as well as flatware to go with your set.

Setting the Table

Informal:

When it comes to actually setting the table, the dinner plate is positioned in the center of the place setting, with the napkin placed over it. The napkin can actually be placed anywhere in an informal setting, either on the plate, to the left of the plate under the forks, or on its own to the left of the forks. The flatware is arranged around the plate in the order it will be used. Two forks are places to the left of the plate with the small fork on the outside and the dinner fork on the inside. The dinner fork (the larger of the two) is used for the main course, whereas the small fork is used for a salad or appetizer. The dinner knife is placed to the right of the plate, the cutting edge facing inward. Spoons then go to the right of the knife, again following the outwards-in rule by which is used first. If soup is served first, it would be placed outside the dinner knife and the dessert spoon would go to the left of the soup soon. Any drink glasses or stemware should be placed to the right of the setting, above the knife.

Formal:

For a formal event such as a dinner party or holiday meal, your formal place setting is just the informal place setting taken to the next level. You can decorate the table with floral centerpieces, candles, etc. This is your chance to have fun with it! A few things to remember: no more than 3 of any utensils are to be placed on the table at a time, except when an oyster fork is used in addition to the other three forks. If you are serving more than 3 courses before dessert, the utensils for the fourth are brought in with the food. Dessert spoons and forks are brought in on the desert plate before dinner is served as well as the cup and saucer for coffee and tea. Overall, the setting follows the same outside-in order as the informal setting did above. The glasses follow this same order, and the water glass should remain on the table from the beginning to the end, typically placed closest to the plates. The only additional differences are the salad plate atop the dinner plate, the place card addition, and the bread plate and butter knife.

A Guide to Registering for Sterling Silver Flatware

Image via

Sterling silver flatware has a classic, timeless appeal that makes it a go-to item for brides to add to their registry. With countless patterns to choose from, you and your future husband will be able to choose a set that fits with your lifestyle. If you’re planning on registering for sterling silver flatware any time soon, read on for some tips on durability, care, and the advantages and disadvantages of adding it to your registry.

Cost

Many brides are weary of adding a sterling silver set to their registry because of the high cost. It is much more expensive than stainless steel, with sets running well into the thousands of dollar range. While this may be a costly investment, you have to remember you are paying for the quality. Your set will retain value over the years and is something that can be passed down from generation to generation as a family heirloom. You can always build upon your set too, so you might choose to only register for a few pieces and then add to your set later on. If you are missing any pieces either from a set you have been passed down or from your registry, you can purchase replacement pieces through Replacements.com.

Durability

While sterling silver flatware is known for its quality, it does tarnish with use. The copper alloy oxidizes over time as it comes in contact with air, sulfur, and water. To counter this, silverware should be immediately washed and dried after use. 

Care

When it comes to caring for your sterling silver flatware, there are a few different options. Sterling silver made after the 1950s is completely dishwasher safe. Although, most experts do advise hand washing and hand drying to retain quality. If you do plan on washing in the dishwasher, it’s best to remove your silver before the drying cycle and dry with a soft, cotton cloth.

The more you use your silverware, the less it will tarnish. The finish on sterling silver actually improves with daily use, unlike many other metals. There are countless sprays, liquids, and pastes out there that you can purchase to help you clean your pieces. Be sure to avoid citrus detergents as these can cause rust spots. If you’re a DIY kind of person, you can also create your own paste by mixing baking soda and water. In addition to cleaning after use, you’ll also want to polish your set once a year, either professionally or with a polish made for sterling silver.

Storage

You’ll want to keep your silver in a clean, dry place. For silver you use daily, keep in a lined chest or drawer. If you’re only using your silver periodically, a tarnish preventive bag or chest is recommended.

A Wedding Emergency Kit for the Groom

Why does a groom need an emergency kit?

Well, let’s be honest for a minute: Even though weddings are about a couple being joined together in holy matrimony for the rest of their lives, a lot of the Big Day is focused around the bride. It takes longer for her to get ready, she’s the one everyone oohs and ahhs over when she walks down the aisle, and she probably chose most elements of the reception. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; we’ve found that most grooms are happy to let their leading lady take the spotlight, but at the same time, the groom shouldn’t be relegated to second fiddle, either!

Not only is gifting him with a groom’s emergency kit a great way to ensure that he feels thought of on the wedding day … it’s also a small insurance policy to guarantee the groom has everything he needs on a day when everyone is paying attention to her. It’ll give him peace of mind and the ability to handle anything that comes his way. 

So what’s in the Groom’s Emergency Kit?

It’s basically a selection of everything our founder, Jackier James, most commonly needed during her days as a wedding planner. It covers everything from rehearsal-dinner hangover curing Advil, to a sewing kit, a shoe horn, and more….

Tux-saving Shout® Wipes (2)
Shave Kit with Gilette® Shave Cream
Styptic Pencil for shaving nicks
Hair Comb

Right Guard® deodorant so you never let em see you sweat
Listerine PocketMist® for close encounters

Cavallini & Co. ® file folders
Advil® for splitting headaches (2)

Kodak® camera for photos with your buddies
Mojuba® pen & notepad
Mojuba® pocket-size playing cards for fun

Colgate® toothbrush & toothpaste
Scope® mouthwash

Shoe horn to slip into your new shoes

Shoe shine wipes (2)

La Fresh® hand sanitizer (2)

Carmex® lip balm for kissing
Lint brush
Gilchrist & Sommes® sewing kit

Band-aids® for your aching feet (8)
Sniff® tissues (10)
Pepcid Complete® for a nervous stomach (2)
Eye drops

Of course, we truly hope the groom doesn’t need everything in this kit on his wedding day, and the good news is that what’s left over makes an ideal travel kit for the honeymoon afterwards!

Fresh Bridal Updos for 2017

If even hearing the term “updo” conjures thoughts of your 16 year old self sporting a French twist on prom night, we’re hear to help you get past that trauma of bad teen hair with a collection of modern, fresh, and downright beautiful bridal updos that are worthy of your wedding day.  
 

The Braided Updo

Braids have been a big trend in updos over the last few years. We love the texture and playfulness the braids bring, especially when worked into looser, romantic hairstyles like the ones below.

The Chignon

A chignon–which is essentially a bun or hairstyle done at the nape of the neck, is a class wedding style, and one that you can guarantee you’ll still love when you look back at your wedding photos three decades from now. The style is incredibly versatile too, so you can customize it to match the formality of your dress or location of your affair. We’ve gathered a few of our favorites from Pinterest, ordered from more structured and formal, to looser and more romantic.

The Almost-Up Do

Another big hairstyle that’s gained popularity with brides lately is what we’re calling “The Almost-Up Do.” That’s because it’s not quite an updo since the hair is still left long, but it’s also too structured to simply call this “wearing your hear down.” It’s a beautiful choice for brides who want to show off their long locks, but don’t want to have to worry about curls falling flat, frizz, or taming stray hairs. We love this look for beach or outdoor weddings.

The Twist (& Shout!)

If curls feel a little too prim for your taste, but braids are a bit bohemian, a twisted updo might be your happy medium. Twists are less voluminous than curls, so they feel sleeker and more modern, but they’re also imperfect and spontaneous, which makes the style anything-but-stiff.

7 Things to Consider Before Hosting a Barn Wedding

Photo via The Knot

The mason jars, the breathtaking countryside backdrop, the crisp night air…there’s nothing quite like a beautiful barn wedding to make you nostalgic for the country life. But before you start scouring local barns in your area, make sure to do some research. Oftentimes, there’s more that meets the eye when it comes to hosting a wedding at a barn or other rustic venue. To get you started, here are seven things you need to know before selecting your venue.

There might be Porta-Potties.

The appeal of a barn wedding is its rustic charm, but tbe prepared to deal with “rustic” elements in the not-so-charming sense, too. For example, many traditional barns or farm venues don’t come readily equipped with bathrooms. Fear not, you can rent toilet trailers or porta-potties for your guests (and some of them are pretty luxe, seriously)! Just remember to include this in your budget, as they can get quite costly.

You’ll have to deal with the elements

Just like with any outdoor event, the key is to be prepared for anything. While every bride is sure to cross her fingers and her toes that her wedding day will be sunny and 72 degrees, it’s better to have a plan in case of inclement weather. Wind, rain, mud, heat, and cold are just a few things to have a backup plan for. Also, keep in mind that most barns don’t have heating or air conditioning. If you’re planning a mid-August wedding, be ready to deal with the hot temps, or look into renting fans.

Be prepared to pick out every little detail

Like with any wedding venue that isn’t full-service, you’ll be responsible for extras like tables, chairs, silverware, wine glasses, and even a dance floor.

Get dirty

No we’re not talking about the Christina Aguilera song…we’re talking about your dress. Whether you’re walking through the grounds or dancing on the barn floor, your dress will drag. Many brides avoid this by changing into a shorter dress for the reception or having their seamstress adjust it before, but either way, get ready to embrace the dirt.

Have an early curfew

Many outdoor venues make you shut down shop by 10 pm because of noise regulations, so if you’re thinking of partying all night you might want to rethink your venue. Check with the barn before you book it to see what their regulations are.

Don’t forget about bugs

Nothing can quite kill the romantic vibe like a dozen bug bites. If you’re having a summer wedding be prepared with citronella candles around the perimeter of the barn. We also suggest putting small baskets of bug spray in the bathrooms for your guests, just in case the mosquitoes decide to join the party.

Mind your guest count

Most barns fit a maximum of 150-175 people, so if you’re looking at a guest list of 200+, you might want to choose another venue. Despite their open and airy feel, when you add in a DJ booth, tables, and chairs, you’re looking at a smaller space. Be sure to check the barn’s space requirements first.

5 New Year’s Resolutions All Brides Should Make

I’m sure you’ve uttered the phrase, “new year, new me” at some point in the past few weeks. But have you applied this new philosophy to your wedding planning? For all brides getting married in the next year, we want you to make a few New Years resolutions. Be warned though, these aren’t the kind of resolutions that you can break in the first few days! So grab your planning notebook and take these to heart.

Wedding Day

1. Enjoy the process
Believe us, it will go by SO fast (emphasis on the “SO.”) One thing we hear a lot are brides who wish that they had taken a step back and enjoyed the planning process a little more. Remember, you’re engaged! Bask in your pre-marital bliss for as long as possible, and remember amid all of the prepping and planning, that you’re getting married to the love of your life!

2. Accept your body for what it is
Now that you have your dream dress, it’s easy to get wrapped up in achieving your “dream body” to go along with it. While there’s no shortage of wedding bootcamps and wedding diets out there, don’t go crazy with them! In the chance of sounding like your mother here, it’s not worth it to go on a crazy crash diet just to fit into your wedding dress. Accept your body for what it is, and find a balance between eating healthy and treating yourself every once and awhile. 

3. Keep a journal of your planning process – you forget the details!
One day you’re going to look back on this process through rose colored glasses and you’re going to want to remember how many cakes you tried before choosing the red velvet or how many dresses you tried on before choosing the one. What better way to document all of the details than with a wedding diary? Write down everything, big or little, so that in a year (or ten!) from now you can look back and remember all of the fun you had.

4. Prioritize time with your significant other during the planning craziness
It’s no secret that a lot of significant others aren’t huge fans of the wedding planning process. Instead of taking on everything yourself, make sure you’re including them as well. While some significant others might not want to help you choose the napkins for the head table, they might love to be a part of the cake tasting. If your significant other wants little to do with the wedding, make sure you’re scheduling in date nights where wedding planning is off the agenda, so you two can spend time together.

5. Don’t stress on the big day: Be prepared with a wedding day emergency kit from Mojuba
After all of this planning and prepping, don’t leave anything to chance on your wedding day. With your Mojuba wedding day emergency kit, you’ll have everything you need to get hitched, without a hitch, all conveniently located in one stylish place. Basically it’s your modern day fairy godmother with a strap! From deodorant, to tissues, to scissors for unruly threads, this kit has it all!

    Creating a honeymoon registry is more popular than ever. What better way to share the love than by having your guests contribute to the honeymoon of your dreams instead of taking part in a typical registry?
