Fill in with flowers that stand out. You can get silk customized bouquets with sparkling stones. Have silver ribbons tied on the chairs for a dramatic feel.

For your tables, have shiny table runners. And of course, your table napkins shouldn’t be just plain white. Get a table napkin with dainty ribbon for a cute look. Plus, it would be nice to put on your tables an impressive silver platter.

5 Things About Buddymoons – The New Honeymoons

5 Things About Buddymoons – The New Honeymoons

Ever heard of a honeymoon with friends and family? Here’s what you need to know about buddymoons.

What are buddymoons?

Buddymoons are essentially honeymoons, plus your buddies (friends, relatives) – thus the term. And if three’s a crowd, as they say it, buddymoons can be as “crowdy” as you want. From tagging along 3 of your closest pals, to bringing dozens of family members, the only limit to the number of people in buddymoons is your budget.

Since when did buddymoons become a trend?

The buddymoon idea gained traction in 2010, according to The Sunday Telegraph. But just why? Flight Centre travel manager Keira Connelly shares, “People want to celebrate and party with friends for longer than just one night and also visit friends overseas who couldn’t make it to the wedding.”

Another reason why buddymoons are getting quite popular is because the idea of being on a romantic, “just the two of us” moment with your partner is no longer that novel. “Today, when about 65 percent of couples cohabitate prior to marriage, the honeymoon is less likely to be a major turning point in their relationship,” NY Times quotes Professor W. Bradford Wilcox, a sociologist and the director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia.

Are buddymoons for everyone?

The idea of spending time with your closest friends and relatives sounds exciting but buddymoons are definitely harder to pull off compared to honeymoons. Bringing a lot of people to a trip will cost more and it’ll be a challenge to plan where to stay. Can one hotel accommodate everyone or does the couple have to figure out who’s staying at which hotel?

Amid the challenges, duos swear that buddymoons are exceptionally fun. Scott Grant and wife Christine of Lake Grove, N.Y., went to a Las Vegas buddymoon with 4 friends for a week after their wedding. She shares, “We had our drinking buddies with us. It truly was the best of both worlds.”

Rent, instead of buying.

Ever thought of renting wedding dresses instead of buying them? If you’re not one overly-sentimental bride, you might not mind renting your outfit for the day, even renting wedding accessories too! Here are a few look-worthy dresses from Rent the Runway.

Opt for potted flowers and plants.

Cut flowers are gorgeous, but potted flowers are just as stunning and you won’t have to worry about what to do with them after the wedding! Depending on how creative your florist is, potted flowers can most definitely pull off the chic look without being too environmentally harsh.

See some potted flowers from Flower Shopping below.

Don’t forget the candles!

If you’re planning to serve dinner outdoors, candles will definitely set the mood, without the need for electricity. Be careful about using too much though, as they’ll warm up the area. Try dimming the lights a bit and adding candles for an intimate flair.
