Greenery always looks good as wedding décor items, so they can be a great idea for a wedding table centerpiece. Use potted herbs, cute little succulents, or charming houseplants. Put them in creative vessels, like wooden boxes, glass jars, handmade pottery, etc, and they will look charming on the wedding tables. But remember that you will have to deal with all these greenery after the wedding – make sure you know where to take a dozen or even a few dozens of plants. For instance, offer them as wedding favors for your guests or sell them after your big day.

In the Middle Ages, wedding dinner was more of a joint community’s dinner than a reception held by the couple. Of course, if we’re talking about ordinary citizens, because the royal newlyweds could easily afford a large feast for hundreds of wedding guests. But peasant brides and grooms couldn’t feed a lot of people by themselves, so it was a common thing for the wedding guests to bring some food and drinks with them. By the way, people drank special bridal ale, brewed for this particular occasion.

A lot of brides begin their skincare prep for the wedding many months before the actual event. And that’s the right thing to do. But if you forget about your lips, the whole work is for nothing. On your wedding day, you kiss a lot – with your husband, family and friends, and dozens of wedding guests, so it’s very important to take care of your lips properly. About 2 weeks before the wedding, start using some lip masks or lip scrubs, which will make your lips more hydrated and smooth, and that means that the lipstick lays better, lasts longer, and looks much prettier. Don’t forget about your lip treatment before the wedding!

When a Slovak bridal procession made their way to the church from the bride’s house, they were very loud. The more noise they made, the better. But why did they do it? It was believed that noise scared away the evil spirits. Slovak people are rather superstitious and they have always believed in evil spirits who try to harm people. It was considered that the bride was vulnerable during her walk to the wedding ceremony because she had already left her house and its protection and hadn’t yet reached her new house and new family. So, it was a dangerous time for the bride and she needed the protection of the crowd, her wedding procession.

American weddings usually include up to 100 guests, while in Latin America, weddings are huge – 400 guests and even more. The thing is, Latin couples have to invite every single relative or they will be offended. It means they have to invite cousins, second cousins, third cousins, those people they call cousins who aren't actually blood related, and so on. And also, neighbors, co-workers, close and not really close friends, parents’ friends, acquaintances, etc. So, Latin American weddings are large and cheerful, while wedding in the US often are fancier.

The most widespread and usual wedding table centerpieces are created from flowers. But if you don’t want to use florals or wish to have something special on your wedding reception tables, use lanterns or a combination of lanterns and flowers / lanterns and candles. Lanterns look romantic, create a homey and dreamy atmosphere, and add warmth and light to the venue. You can buy them a lot cheaper on flea markets. But remember that if the lanterns have lit candles inside, you need to think about fire safety. Some venues don’t allow to use open fire, so the lanterns have to be closed.

The best possible way to save money on a rehearsal dinner is to make a small meal in a restaurant, with only the closest people present. Don’t rent a venue or restaurant, just book a table or gazebo or something like that. If you invite more guests than your parents and wedding party, think about asking them to pay for their order or part of the order. Also, serve non-alcoholic drinks or only wine and beer – it’s cheaper and your guests will be in a better shape on the wedding day if they drink less.

The dolls are wrapped in cocoa leaves and are buried with a seed of a tree. The locals believe that this seed will grow and the couple’s love will grow with it. Also, it’s a great way to plant new trees, which always is a good thing.
