Perfection in Every Shoe… Choosing the right one for your Wedding Dress.

We frequently get asked what shoes should be worn. The simple answer is that there is no hard and fast rule on what shoes can be worn. Anything goes.

Shoes can make or break an outfit. Balancing comfort and style are no easy task. There is a plethora of options. Like any accessory, it is how you style the shoes with your chosen look.  When I got married, I based my style on my shoes. I purposefully purchased a statement shoe that I felt was elegant, yet sexy and of course, had the bling factor.

I settled on a pair by Italian designer Rene Caovilla. It was a ‘t-strap’ stiletto covered in gorgeous white satin and had jewels along the front of the shoe.  And because I purchased the shoes first, the dressmaker matched my dress to my shoes perfectly. I was nervous about them staining, but the shoe designer arranged for them to be professionally scotch guarded. The bonus in buying these shoes was that I could and did dye them in black.  The heel height was 100 mm. I usually wore higher shoes, but logic prevailed, and I chose comfort over height.

The choices were staggering. I knew I did not want a patent shoe (I got married in summer and patent in the heat is not forgiving), not too high as I had to be in them for at least 12 hours, minimal heel-to-toe-drop, be on the broader side, not chunky and finally, be comfortable.

Today, if getting married, I would choose a block heel to prevent me from sinking in the grass and ruining my shoe’s heel. Possibly with a built-in platform for added comfort. Would I do a wedge, that would depend on the chunkiness? Would I do a bling sneaker, probably not?  That does not mean a bride cannot.

To aide in the decision-making process, here are a few options:

Block Heels

One of my favourite heels. I find these to offer good support mainly from the front of the foot. Great for standing all day. These types of heels come in varying heights and styles. This type of heel will not dig into the grass, and you can walk on any uneven surface without damaging your heel. My tip for a block heel is to make sure the foot-to-toe ratio is spot-on; otherwise, you feel pain throughout the day.

An alternative to the block heel is a square or flared heel that could also work with varying dress styles. A flared heel has a bit more of a wow factor to it.

Cuban Heel

Surprisingly, a Cuban heel could work, depending on the outfit. The heel would provide good support due to the medium-low height options.

Wedge Heel

Like a block heel, wedged heel shoes come in varying heights. I find wedges a flattering on feet and easy to stand in all day. As wedges can be quite chunky, you need to have your outfit when trying these shoes. In my experience, the wedge heel can look wrong when paired with a formal gown.

Stiletto Heel

Love this type of heel, striking.  Diverse in height, width and style. As you will be in the shoe all day, I recommend that the foot-to-toe ratio be spot on to prevent any pain running through your foot. Stiletto heels do dig into the grass and can be easily damaged. A heel protector can prevent damage. 

An alternative for those wanting a high thin heel stiletto shoe, consider one with an inbuilt platform. I find an in-built platform to look more stylish. If you cannot find a shoe like this, any platform will work. A platform still creates the wow factor and takes any pressure away from the foot.  Another option is a cone heel or a spool heel. Both types of heels are timeless in style.  Easier to walk on the grass and uneven surfaces. Feet friendlier when you have to be in them all day. Again, these come in varying heights.

Image: Rene Caovilla https://www.instagram.com/p/CFXUD5oh73O/

Kitten Heel

A kitten heel is a good option for those who prefer a stylish low heel. By far a sensible choice in comfort. Again, watch for the grass and uneven surfaces as the small heel will get damaged.  Not wanting to deal with the grass headache, consider a French Heel. A kitten heel only thicker.

Image : Pinterest

Sneakers

Sneakers are on trend now. Should they be worn with a wedding dress? Firstly, you need a sneaker with bling. If you are going to wear a pair, make them stand out. Secondly, it depends on the wedding dress and the theme of the wedding. There are no hard and fast rules. Wear what works and what’s great about sneakers is that you can customise them to suit your dress.

Image: Pinterest

Ballet Flats

The slipper-like in design with a very thin or completely flat heel with a closed toe. These type of shoes are not as supportive as other shoes due to the lack of arch system to help absorb the brunt of the pressure the feet endure every day. I would recommend you change into these more towards the end of the night if you are experiencing pain from your shoes.

Stretching your shoes

We get asked how to stretch your shoes. There are so many hacks on YouTube that can give tips on how to stretch your shoes. I wore my shoes with thick socks and walked around the house and the block street a month prior. Regardless, when you are in your shoes for 10 hours plus, they will hurt.

Have band-aids with you or a blister block type product that can prevent blisters from forming and rubbing on your shoes. If you have bunions or corns, there are protectors you can buy that will help stop rubbing.

Despite my efforts in stretching my shoes, I lasted in my shoes up until the last two hours of the reception. I had to peel my shoes off and slip into thongs. Now that hurt. Have a go-to-most-comfortable shoe with you, just in case.

Other considerations..

The material of the shoe is another factor to consider. Leather is the most comfortable and hard-wearing but can look a bit boring. If opting for a material, a good cobbler can protect the fabric.

Another consideration is to select a shoe based on the width, arch height and length of your foot.  Addressing these factors will aid in your comfort. If you are getting married in summer, feet swell so do not try shoes on when the weather is cool. When trying on shoes and it feels uncomfortable, put the shoe down. It is not for you.

If your shoes are a statement piece, add a coloured shoe such as gold, silver, or a bold colour like red, or maybe blue. A coloured shoe will give your outfit a pop and add that extra something.

How To Choose the Right Shapewear.

Dictionary’s definition of shapewear is ‘women’s tight-fitting underwear intended to control and shape the figure’. There is no dispute that shapewear works in slimming the tummy, hips, and thigh area; and some lift the buttocks. Finding the right style for your body can be a bit of a challenge. There needs to be a level of comfort, and importantly, the shapewear of choice must NOT roll down your waist or roll up your thighs. The shapewear worn will be determined by the style of dress and what area of your body you want ‘shaped’. With many brands available, choices are aplenty. Below is a shapewear guide that can be used when choosing what would suit best your body type and dress

Image source: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/219198706838381926/

When purchasing shapewear, consider the following:

  • Soft and breathable fabric. Most of what is out there is 90% nylon and 10% lycra stretch. The last thing you want is a fabric that makes you sweat!!
  • No roll-up or roll-down – nothing is worse than when you are walking, and you can feel the shapewear roll – you will be adjusting yourself all night. Here is where the size has to be right – take the time in finding the right size. Some shapewear has grip strips that help with the rolling. A good tip is to add dress tape to secure boyleg type shapewear from rolling up your thigh.
  • Do not go for a size smaller than what you wear – the shapewear needs to be firm but not so tight that you cannot eat or drink.
  • It creates unnecessary lumps to another part of your body.
  • Must be seamless 
  • Does not pinch any of your muscles or skin
  • Consider bathroom breaks – how easily can you maneuver in and out of the garment

We recommend that when you decide on a style of dress and the type of shapewear you will be wearing; all wedding fittings should be made with the shapewear on.

Clean Beauty – A Healthy Alternative For Brides & Grooms.

The words ‘clean beauty’ seems to be used frequently amongst cosmetic and skincare brands. Phrases such as ‘natural’, ‘vegan’, vegetarian’, ‘organic’, and ‘animal-free’ are synonymous to clean beauty. From my point of view, clean beauty equates to chemically synthetic-free ingredients which in theory should be better for your overall health, particularly over a long period. It covers cosmetics, skincare, dental, hair, fragrances, the list goes on.

Putting the rise of clean beauty into perspective, a report published by the Statista Research Department in 2019 projected the natural and organic beauty industry to grow to $22bn by 2024. (Clean Beauty Gals, 2019).

Like food, there is a difference between vegetarian and vegan cosmetics. Vegetarian-based products are derived from an animal; an example would be beeswax, produced from bees.

A further example would be red and purple based pigment cosmetics such as eyeshadows that are derived from carmine. Carmine is extracted through beetles and small insects. As the product is derived from an animal source, it is vegetarian. A beauty product that substitutes red dyes with real foods like strawberries and beets would be considered vegan.(aboutvegan.com, 2020).

Over the years, I have gradually moved towards organic, naturally derived skincare products. For me, using skincare products that have been made from olive oil, geranium, rose etc., have seen my skin look and feel better. My skin does not feel as clogged and heavy after putting on various skincare products.

Recently, I have changed my approach towards cosmetic products and now actively source brands that are natural, vegetarian, vegan and animal friendly. The change came about after years of wearing red and purple based eyeshadows and pencils, to end up with itchy eyes and sometimes conjunctivitis. It was frustrating as I was unable to wear these colours. It reached a point of enough is enough. After researching the web, I read about carmine and where it is sourced. It was then that I learnt the difference between vegetarian and vegan cosmetics. The products I was using were vegetarian, so I sourced vegan alternatives. Now I wear red and purple eye-makeup without eye irritations.

More cosmetic brands are offering vegan lines recognising people’s preference for products that are ‘cleaner’, and one can argue better for our health. We have put together a list of brands across various categories to guide our wedztyler’s into purchasing clean beauty products.

INIKA CLEAR NATURAL BEAUTY

The brand offers PETA certified and cruelty-free; all their products are vegan. I use their red and purple shadows and liners which are quite pigmented and long lasting. Diverse range of products ranging from skincare to cosmetics – click on the website for details.

Not All Mascaras Are Equal – Which one is for you?

Following up on our blog ‘lash for beginners’, we wanted to reach out to our Wedztylers who prefer to use mascara to enhance their lashes. For me, choosing the right mascara for your eyelashes is just as significant as selecting the right shade of red lipstick. 

There is no doubt that there are many variations of mascara. My personal view is that not all mascaras work equally.  Thought should go into a cosmetic purchase such as this. I look at various elements, such as:

  • the smell – does it smell like a chemical laboratory?
  • the depth of pigment
  • the type of bristle brush
  • Wiper ratio – want good amount of product on the brush
  • It is not wet – I really do not want to be applying 2-3 coats
  • Intended effect – love lengthening and volumising
  • how easy it is to remove
  • consistency – gluggy and thick – my pet hate

Before I continue what I look for in a mascara, have you ever wondered about the ingredients in a mascara?  Mascara’s ingredients typically include a carbon black or iron oxide pigment to darken lashes; a polymer to form a film that coats lashes; a preservative; and thickening waxes or oils such as lanolin, mineral oil, paraffin, petrolatum, castor oil, carnauba wax, and candelilla wax.” (Makayla, 2019).

A lot of cosmetic products, including mascara, contain crystal guanine which is a colorant. Guanine is manufactured from fish scales. Yes, you read correctly. As fish scales are animal-based, mascaras are neither vegetarian nor vegan. Synthetic dyes (chemically derived) are also used as colorants (Makayla, 2019).

There are brands of mascara available that are natural and organic vegan, many of which are certified by the Vegan Society and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals PETA (https://www.peta.org/). The Vegan Society logo launched in 1990 to help make a living a vegan lifestyle simple by providing an easy way to recognize whether a product comes from their certified Vegan beauty brands  (https://www.vegansociety.com/).

Interesting enough, the formulation of mascara has not changed dramatically over the past fifty years. What has changed and evolved is the mascara brush. Traditional mascara brushes are made from nylon bristle fibres which wrap around a wire into a particular shape. Nylon brushes deliver more volume. Nowadays, plastic-moulded brushes are used for greater design control. Cosmetic companies spend millions on patenting their brush designs to give a specific look (Gattis, L). These include:

  • Lengthening
  • Thickening/Volumising
  • Curling
  • Lash defining

It is worth mentioning that the thicker the brush, the more volume to the lash. The thinner the brush, more precision delivery to the lash.

Image Source: Instagram @hourglass

The wiper, which is the plastic ring inside the mascara tube’s mouth contributes to the performance of the product; it is pivotal.  Companies aim to balance the volume of excess formula wiped off versus how much is retained on the brush as it determines how much product is on lashes. If the wiper is too tight, all the formula gets squeezed off the brush. But too large a wiper, then it clumps. (Gattis, L).

Regardless of the formulation, the brush or bottle, it appears to me that the wiper is the bit that counts.

Brand and type of a mascara is a personal choice. I would like to do is share with our fellow Wedztylers my ultimate favourites.

There are many variations in the market. I encourage our Wedztylers to try different mascaras, colours, and types of lash effects. Keep in mind, the brand is irrelevant. Focus on the type of bristle brush and the wiper ratio. Not all mascaras are the same!!!

How To Choose The Right Bodice For Your Wedding Dress.

In our last blog ‘say yes to the right dress’, we explored different body types along with varying styles of dress. In this blog, we are focusing on the different kinds of bodices that will complement different wedding dress styles and body types. The bodice is the upper part of the dress, covering the waist to the bust. The bodice creates body balance, therefore, an essential element of the wedding dress.

Most women know what part of their bodies is their greatest asset. Most would agree that the golden rule for choosing any dress, is to maximise your best body asset. Selecting the right bodice and neckline that suits your body type, creates a visual proportion between your upper and lower body. The symmetry of the balance is what will make the ‘wow’ factor. 

Four main body shapes will be covered. 

Source: Pinterest

Triangle/Pear Body Shape 

Women of this body shape have a smaller upper body and broader hips. The aim is to minimise the balance ratio between the upper body to the hips by creating the illusion that the shoulders are wider than they are.

 The ideal bodice type is using various accessories that will add to the volume to the waist and, choosing a neckline that opens the shoulder area up. A boat neckline, adding cap sleeves, or thick straps will add expansion across the shoulders. Consider adding shoulder pads if your dress has sleeves. Halter styles and deep plunge necklines will make your shoulders narrower. Adding ‘bling’ within the waist area will draw the attention away from the hip.  

Milla Nova

Cone/ Apple Body Shape

The Cone/Apple body shape women have a larger bust, broader shoulders and narrow hips. The idea is to minimise the bust size, shoulder broadness and add more volume from the hip down.

The neckline perfect for this body type is V-neck, U neck, scoop necks, strapless, focusing on minimising the details on the shoulders with simple straight lines. Softening the shoulders with softly draped fabrics and elongating the neckline will create the visual proportion you need. Sleeves cut on a diagonal, and a plunging necklace will also create a narrowing look. Any detail around shoulders should be balanced with a princess-style gown.

Avoid off the shoulder, puff sleeves, shoulder pads or any structured shoulder design. The idea is to draw attention to the bottom half of the gown. 

Berta

Hourglass Body Shape

Hourglass-shaped women typically have small waist and bust and hips that are proportionate to each other.  The idea with a body shape such is to create emphasis around the waist area whether it is adding ‘bling’ or cinching the dress around the waist. The focal point is the waist.

 The neckline best suited is off-shoulder, sweetheart, strapless, square, scoop, V-neck, oval, rounded or jewel.

Avoid wearing avoiding high, narrow, square, boatneck and wide necklines as it adds volume around the shoulder, creating a disproportionate to the hips.

Oscar De La Renta

Rectangle Body Shape

Women who have a rectangular body lack distinct curves. Busts, waist and hips are sized.  The aim with a figure such as this is to add curves. Adding bling to the bodice or cinching the dress at the waist will create an illusion of waist hence curves.

To lengthen the shoulder and focus on the bust area by wearing rounded necklines such as a scoop or jewel neck. Another option is opting for lower, wider necklines such as V-neck, slash, scoop or sweethearts.  Off the shoulder, bateau and strapless is another option.

Avoid square, and straight necklines as these will create a shapeless look.

Naeem Khan

Breast Shape

Women with large breasts can minimise the appearance by wearing a scoop, cow and v-neckline. Also, adding delicate accessories that sit at the decolletage will draw the eye away from the breast area. Adding detail around the waist will highlight the waist taking the focus away from the breasts.

Of course, women who want their breast to be their focal point should opt for deep plunging necklines, hence why V-neck is perfect for women with large breasts.

Small breasted women have a lot more choices as the outfits tend to look softer as their breasts are not spilling out of the dress.  Off the shoulder dresses suit most small-breasted women. Adding accessories around the bust line will also create the volume around the breast area. Wear a padded bra to create a cleavage.

Fitting of the dress

A wedding dress fitting is the best way to sculpt the gown to the body and ensure a proper fit. Brides typically need three fittings before the dress is ready to be worn. Once you have chosen the type of dress you want, whether the dress is designed or off the rack, it is essential to get the fit right.We have all been in a situation where we have fallen in love with a dress, knowing that it does not fit as it should.  

Below are ten indicators that the dress does not fit right:

  1. Does not sit well under the breast area
  2. Spillage around the back and breast area
  3. Too tight around the waist. It will not loosen.
  4.  Straps keep falling.
  5. The bodice is itchy – think of comfort.
  6. Draglines appearing around the hips
  7. The seamline is crooked.
  8. The zip is difficult to pull up.
  9. When you sit down, bend or move the dress cuts off your breathing.
  10.  The waistband is not sitting where it should.

Looking and feeling fabulous on the day will depend on the fit of the dress and how it suits your body shape.

Say Yes to the right Wedding Dress.

Ladies, the time has come to say yes to the right dress. A wedding dress is a piece of artwork designed for the bride to make her partner and all guests gasp when she walks in. Like any fashion statement piece, confidence is critical. How the dress fits in with all the other elements such as hair, make-up, etc. creates the wow, not the price tag. We at Wedztyle feel that looking for a wedding dress should be a joyful experience as this is a time for the bride to experiment with different styles, shades of white and materials.

Before we explore the different types of dress, I would like to touch on body shape balance. Despite if a bride is a bottom or top-heavy, has a narrow waist or wide hips, there needs to be a body shape balance between the upper torso, and legs. By creating vertical balance, the body looks in proportion, so the ‘good’ bits stand out, and the ‘not so good’ bits are hidden. However any dress can be the right dress, regardless of recommendations, your dress should make you feel special and beautiful.

Vertical Body Balance

Image: Pinterest

In essence, the primary axis (legs) and the secondary axis (upper torso) should be in balance when wearing any outfit. There are four main body types.

Images: Pinterest

Based on a vertical body balance, as a guide, a triangle body shape should balance out their shoulders to their hips. Dresses can include a boat or scoop neckline, even a strapless. A straight A-line, empire, or a gown style gown would create the right proportions.

An hourglass body shape would look fabulous in a dress that accentuates their tiny waste such as a ball gown or A-line. Any wedding dress that frames or flares from the waist will create that nice vertical body balance. A nicely fitted jumpsuit pinched at the waist will look stunning.

 A cone body shape needs to find balance on the lower half of their body. A wedding dress that flares from the knee would look amazing on this type of body shape. Gowns like a mermaid, trumpet even strapless would work well.

As for a rectangular body, the ideal type of dresses would be A-line, empire, and drop-waist. A suit with a longer jacket that is fitted would look fabulous.

Styles of Wedding Dresses

The Ballgown

For brides wanting a princess look, the ballgown is for you. The style of the dress tends to be fitted at the waist with a full skirt. The bodice can be strapless, with straps, or halter style. Perfect for all body types.

Source: Elie Saab

The Trumpet

The style of the Trumpet gown is similar to a mermaid style as it hugs the body in the right places and gradually flares outwards. The trumpet flare begins in the mid-thigh area. The stylishness is ideal for hourglass and petite figures. For our pear and apple figured brides, the style does accentuate the stomach and hip area. Wearing great shapewear will slim down those areas.

Source: Elie Saab

Mermaid

Over the years the mermaid style dress of dress has increased in popularity. The design hugs close to the body, flares at or below the knee, creating a mermaid-like tail. These dresses tend to be harder to move around in than the trumpet, so maybe think about having a different dress for the reception so you can move around more easily. This type of style suits the hourglass-shaped ladies but once again, if you have your heart set on this one shapewear is the key.

Jumpsuit

The jumpsuit has gained popularity over the past years. Designers add their spin on the jumpsuit to make sure it has enough bling to make it the perfect choice. It is an ideal option to change into after the ceremony as you can move around in it better at the reception. Great for all body types.

The Suit

The white suit has gained momentum within the last couple of years, especially for the couples that have chosen to elope during COVID19 pandemic.  As there are different styles of suits, choose one that will compliment your body shape. Do not be afraid to add some bling. Pair the suit with accessories such as jewellery, headpiece, and flowers.

No matter what style of wedding dress you choose, wear it with confidence. Keep in mind what overall look you want to achieve and use this as a guide. Also, think about your vertical body shape to your body type as this will keep your proportions intact.

Happy hunting fellow Wedztyle brides.

How to Choose your perfect Wedding Day Perfume Scent.

The essence of perfume, the feeling of completing your look with the fragrance that ties your look together; smelling the different tones throughout the day is a feeling not easily explained. The sensuality of a fragrance that compliments your mood and improves your confidence is worth the personal investment.  For wedding couples out there, choosing the right scent for you is just as important as the right undergarment or tie.

Being an avid fragrance purchaser, I want to give our Wedztyler’s a snippet of the history of perfume. The ancient Egyptian women associated fragrances with immortality. The Pharaohs were wrapped in bandages filled with aromatic oils. Egypt was one of the first countries to use fragrant oils as part of their daily beauty routines. The Greeks also adored perfume. Many of their legends and gods refer to Greek gods of scent. Their poets often talked about the use of perfumes; including for healing which we now refer to aromatherapy. The Romans, who were influenced by the Greeks, scented everything in essential oils. From there many other countries took to fragrances for varying purposes. (The Birth of Modern Perfumery, 2012).

The French have based an industry on French perfumes. No other country is known for perfumes like France, with Paris being the center hub for all the power brands. Interesting, the perfume manufacturing is from a little town called Grasse located in the Alpes Maritimes department, northwest of Nice. Grasse mild Mediterranean climate is ideal for horticulture of jasmine, rose, myrtle, lavender, and mimosa – all important for natural aromas. (Perfume of Frances, 2003-2020).

Classification of Perfumes and notes

Perfumes are describing as notes which describes the scent once the fragrance interacts with the body. Perfumes notes are divided into three – top, middle, and bottom. Most people purchase fragrances based on top notes when, in fact, middle and base notes determine the scent. Fragrances can have a different aroma differently as they settle into the skin. Below is an explanation of the different types of notes which will help couples decide their fragrance for their wedding day.

  • Top Notes – when you spray perfume, the top notes are what is smelt immediately. The small molecules found in the perfume, evaporate quite quickly. The top notes draw us to the initial smell of the fragrance. Top notes can include basil, bergamot, thyme
  • Middle Notes – once the top notes begin to dissipate, the middle notes begin to kick in. The middle notes tend to portray the scent of the fragrance. But they are not immediate. The middle notes of the perfume begin to interact with the skin over a few minutes. Once you spray a perfume on, it needs to settle, allowing the middle notes to come through, giving a true indication of the scent. These include lavender, rosemary, nutmeg
  • The Base – notes is the body of the scent. Once the middle notes begin to disappear, the base notes come in creating that lasting scent on the skin. These larger molecules of the base notes do not evaporate very quickly hence why the perfume can last on some skins for 24 hours.  Base notes include vanilla, rose, frankincense (History of Pefume, 2020)

Notes are made up of Oriental, Woody, Floral and Fresh. Under each of these four common notes are subcategories. In 1983, Michael Edward a British fragrance developed a fragrance wheel which ties the notes and subcategories together ( (History of Perfume, 2020).

The concentration of the aromas in a perfume determines the longevity of the fragrance on the skin. For me, the more concentrated, the better. I found this image which gives an excellent comparison of the types of perfumes and their longevity. The higher the concentration, the higher the price. I would use this as a cost guide. Pricing can range from $300+ to as a low as $20 (AUD). If you are budget conscious and want a more concentrated fragrance, purchase a 30ml bottle.

Perfume Concentration

Now the fun bit, suggesting fragrances from classics to now. Perfume is personal. What works on your skin will be different to what works on my skin.

With so many fragrances available for women and men, there are too many to list. Now that you know the history of perfume and the ingredients that go into making scents, you can all appreciate that not all perfumes are the same.

I will leave our Wedztylers with a pondering thought. A scent evokes emotion, memory, lifts the mood and creates confidence. Regardless of the type of fragrance chosen, let it represent you and your feelings of the day.  The perfume you choose is as important as selecting your colour lipstick. Open yourself to the endless choices available and enjoy the process of choosing your wedding fragrance.

How to choose the perfect Wedding Day hashtag #

What Is Your Wedding Day Hashtags? 

Lately, we have been getting couples asking advice or suggestions on creating a personalised hashtag for their wedding day. Wedding day hashtags are on the increase in popularity. The hashtag was created by Chris Messina for twitter in 2007, and ever since then they have become the norm. Hashtags are a perfect way to get your guest involved, allowing them to tag you into their favourite’s picture from your wedding day. Couples who are unsure of how to create their hashtags, I can make it easy for all.

What are hashtags?

Firstly, why are hashtags even used? A hashtag is a way of connecting a brand, topic, event, or theme to social media platforms. It creates a connection to your intended audience. For a wedding, the chosen hashtags will create an engagement between the wedding couple and their guests. As your guests tag a post, it will become visible on the corresponding hashtag page. 

To start creating hashtags, consider unique ones that are specific to your wedding and your guests. Personalised hashtags mean that you are not sharing your wedding photos with other couples. 

Below are three simple steps in creating the perfect hashtag(s).

Step 1. Start with the Couple’s Names.

There are so many variations you can use with this first step. You can either choose your firsts names, last names, nicknames, or event better mesh your names together. https://namecombiner.com/

Below are examples you can use:

#MrsandMrJones

#MrandMrJones

#MrsandMrsJones

#MeettheJones

#TheJonessquard

#TheSmithjonessquard

#MeetSmithandJones

#MeettheJones

#Thejones2020

#SmithandJones2020

#TeamSmithandJones

#Lovethesmiths

#Jonsmith

#Smitones

Get creative with your hashtags, make them simple, authentic, and catchy. These should reflect your personalities and the theme of your wedding. Please do not make them too long, as you want your guests to be able to remember them when using the hashtag. If you are having issues creating a hashtag, try a hashtag generator. 

Using a hashtag generator create fast, useful, and most relevant hashtags for your specific event and social media platform. Below are just a few that I found Google.

Step 2. Creating a hashtag

Once you have chosen the hashtags for your wedding, begin tagging photos of your wedding to those hashtags, so you can start to create your hashtag page.

Recommendations are to take photos of the planning process such as you trying on dresses, flower ideas, cakes ideas, location ideas anything leading up to your big day. Also, include images of the wedding shower, rehearsal dinner and any other festivities.

Step 3. Giving your hashtags to your Guests

Now that you have chosen your hashtags notify your quests, so they are following your hashtag page. Suggestions include:

  • Include a special note with save the date or wedding invitations
  • Add them to the ceremony program, place cards and seating charts
  • Use a framed sign and place this next to the guest book or gift table

Tips for Facebook/Instagram and Twitter

  • If you have private profiles tag posts, they will not appear publicly. If you want to make them viewable to all, change your profile to public 
  • You are only able to tag your posts, no one other people’s photos/videos.
  • Using fewer hashtags will make it easier for your guests to engage. Please keep it to no more than eight tags on a post. Excessive tags such as 30 on a single photo/video mean your comments will not post. 
  • Avoid use punctuation, as no platform will be able to read them
  • Place hashtags in the caption for the most impressions

The e-Wedding Planner

Planning a wedding without a clear direction can be stressful. Couples either hire a wedding planner which can be pricy (the average fee to hire a wedding planner is approximately 20% of the total budget of the wedding) or wing it. And those who ‘wing’ end up with a mess and blow their budget out.

There has a big shift within the wedding industry with many couples choosing to plan their own weddings and opting not to hire wedding planners. Depending on the size of the wedding and budget, couples planning their own weddings look for inspiration through socials such as Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook wedding groups.

I recently received an email from an accredited online course offering a course on wedding planning. Curiosity took the best of me, and I enquired. Having been in the wedding industry since 1997 (showing my age), primarily designing and decorating wedding cakes, the content I received indicated that not much has changed. However, I did notice that couples were being less traditional and adopting for ‘something different’. I will not shock you with the price asked!!! Wedztyle.com

When designing my wedding cakes, there were so many questions I would ask the couples to understand their vision and ensure that the wedding cake tied into the theme perfectly. Wedding Planning is no different. It is bringing that vision to life and offering the best experience on that special day. And of course, it needs to cost-effective.

Not to take away the value that a wedding planner brings, we have created an e-wedding planner so that couples have a clear and focused guide without the hefty price tag. The wedding planner ebook can be used together with your wedding planner or on its own.

The e-wedding planner provides a methodology on how to plan a wedding. It gives useful tips across all aspects such as vendor selection, destination weddings, wedding dress selection. The list goes on. And of course, it contains budget tables under each section; keeping couples on track. wedztyle.com

Our e-wedding planner is instantly accessible and available for download on all devices such as iPhone, iPad and kindles. Once downloaded, it can be used immediately. It is like having a digital wedding planner at your fingertips. But at your convenience.

Another key advantage of our e-wedding planner is that we like to inform our Wedztyle community of changing trends. All updates made are free of charge. Yes, you heard that correctly. No hidden costs. The price you pay, is all you pay.

Give it a go and download your copy. We welcome all feedback, good and bad. Simply head to our website to purchase your copy at Wedztyle.com

 

Just Engaged? Tips On Planning A Stress-free Wedding

 

Congratulations your getting married! After the engagement shock has worn off, it is time to start making some serious decisions in achieving your dream wedding. Most brides know the type of wedding they want whilst other do not. Then there is knowing what is on trend.

Wedztyle have done some research for you on what is currently trending and will share some tips that can make planning your special day as stress free as possible.

 

Set The Date

Setting the date is not a easy task. There are many factors that needs to be considered. What type of wedding do you want? A spring or summer wedding? Is there a special date you have in mind. Are there any conflicting dates such as another friends wedding, or a special event. Are family coming over from overseas, are they able to travel on that date.  The list is endless. Sending out save the date cards are a great way of letting your guests know in advance that you have set the date and that the formal invitations will follow.

Create A Wedding Checklist

Weddings are a big event for anyone to plan. Setting a solid checklist will allow you to organise everything by setting firm dates and deadlines not only for yourself, but also for your family and bridal party. It will also act as a guide of prioritising what is important, what is not. A wedding checklist gives you complete control over your wedding. We recommend creating one main checklist outlining what needs to be done within a 12 month timeline, along with a checklist for the actual wedding day. Too many checklists will cause confusion and unnecessary stress for yourself and the people around you.

Choosing Your Style And Location

Before you book your venue, try on a wedding dress, you must decide what type of style and vibe you want to create for your day. We all have an idea of what type of wedding we want and visualising your day will help you in deciding.  Have you always visualised yourself walking barefoot on a beach, in a beautiful garden or in an old church? Do you want it to be a traditional wedding, a vintage wedding or rustic wedding? A large or small wedding with only close family and friends. Is it going to be a destination wedding, and if so what type? What we love are vision boards. These allow you to take some inspiration from different weddings, and help you create your perfect day; not to mention staying on budget.

Set a Budget

Setting a budget is one of the most important part of planning any event especially a wedding. The average Australian wedding costs $40,000.00. Keeping to your budget will allow you to still have your dream wedding without making you broke. A budget checklist that you can cross reference against your wedding checklist will keep you as close to your budget as possible.

Choose Your Wedding Party

How many bridesmaids are too many? How big of a wedding party do you really need? It all depends of the type of wedding your having, and the budget that you have allocated. The trend these days is for bridesmaids to contribute to their shoes and dress, while the bride will pay for the makeup and hair on the day. If your thinking of providing everything for your bridesmaids then this needs to be factored into your budget.  Costs can creep up quite easily so you need to stay on track!!

Another trend is for bridesmaids not to wear the identical dresses but keeping to the same or similar colour scheme. This allows your bridesmaids to wear dresses that suits their body shape. The groomsmen can wear the same suits with the matching colour scheme running through the ties or the cravats.

Create Your Guest List

Depending on your cultural background, the size of your guest list will vary from wedding to wedding. I am from a European background therefore I had to invite people that I personally didn’t know. All these people were friends of my parents and in laws. Times have changed. Creating your guest list requires quite a bit of thinking. We all don’t want to offend people, but sometimes we have no choice. We recommend by firstly deciding on a preliminary number of guests you want to invite. Then begin your invite list with immediate family members, followed by your closest friends. From here, then you can play around with the invitees. Be firm with your guest list, the more people you have the more you will go over your budget. This might mean cutting things out of your wedding or compromising on the things you really want.

Book a Venue

Choosing the venue is an important step. The venue is an important part of your wedding as it ties into your wedding theme. Most couples will book the venue before the church/wedding ceremony site as sometimes the most popular venues are booked 12-18 months in advance. What to look for in a venue:

1. Do they cater for the amount of guest I have?

2. Do they have the correct facilities for my guests?

3. Do they supply an events manager to help you with your vision?

4. Cost per person?

5. Is the food and alcohol a set price or are they seperate?

6. Do they cater for all dietary requirements?

Choose Your Suppliers

When choosing your suppliers, make sure you have everything written down, especially pricing that has been negotiated between the parties. I have heard of some horror stories of the wedding cake was completely different to what was ordered, or the photographs were not what you had asked for. These are our tips when choosing a supplier:

1. Make sure you have everything written down and signed by both parties. Include some images of what you want and give them a copy.

2. Communications with your suppliers is key, as this will ensure everyone is on the same page and there is no room for misunderstanding.

3. When ordering your cake/ food, make sure they are able to cater for anyone with dietary requirements. Supply a clear list of your guest with dietary requirements and were they will be seated to the venue.

4. Take photos of your hair and make-up trails to make sure your happy with what you have chosen. This will also help your hairdresser and makeup artist remember what was discussed. Any changes, document them. Trial two weeks prior your wedding.

5. Make sure that you have your final wedding dress fitting approx two weeks before the wedding. This will allow for any changes and most importantly if the dress requires dry cleaning.

6. Contact all your suppliers one month and two weeks prior your wedding to confirm everything is track and if changes need to be made this is the time to do it. Give all your suppliers a running sheet of the day so they know what is required from them on the day.

about WedZtyle

 

WedZtyle came about by a family of sisters who feel passionate about assisting couples in planning their wedding day. Our first introduction to weddings was back in 1997, where we started on the journey of designing and decorating wedding cakes.

Because of this, WedZtyle was created to give couples a valuable tool to guide them in planning their special day. 

We recognise that couples have different needs. What we offer is an individualised approach that allows couples to choose what is most important to them.
