7 Unique Wedding Guest Book Ideas

Out with the old and in with the new! Traditional wedding guests books often get thrown on a shelf and looked at maybe once a year during your anniversary. Make the guest book something a little more special that you can cherish for years to come. Keep reading for some unique guest book ideas from your favorite bridal boutique in Palm Beach.


1. The Bucket List Guest Book.


If you're an adventurous couple that's always looking for new experiences, try the Bucket List Guest Book. Ask guests to leave recommendations of places to go and things to see that you can add to your bucket list. For years to come, you'll have ideas of fun ways to spend time with your new spouse. Adventure awaits!


2. Vintage Vinyl Guest Book.


For the music buffs, consider having your guests sign some vintage vinyl. Scour garage sales or thrift shops for old, inexpensive albums to use for your guest book. You can then use them to create a modern piece of artwork to display over your stereo and music storage area. 
 

3. Scrapbook Guest Book.


Take the traditional guest book up a notch and have guests help you create a scrapbook! Setup a station with a Polaroid camera, washi tape, colored pens, stickers, etc. When guests arrive, they can snap a picture of themselves, tape it in the scrapbook and then scribble down their names and some advice for the newly weds.

4. Video Guest Book.


For the tech-savvy couple, a video guest book is the perfect solution. Instead of having people write down their well-wishes for the bride and groom, have them record them. Setup a station with a video camera, iPad or some other recording device. Ask guests to create fun shout-outs on video. Later you can combine each clip to create a fun wedding video that you can cherish for years to come.

5. Guest Book Quilt.


Be reminded of that special day every time you're cold and need to cuddle up with a blanket by having your guests sign a quilt instead of a traditional guest book. Sew together pieces of material, possible featuring your wedding colors, to create a quilt that guests can then sign with fabric markers. Instead of having your guest book sit on a shelf and collect dust, you can turn it into something you'll use regularly.

6. The Game Guest Book.


Do you and your fiance love to play board games? Why not create a guest book that you can play with? Grab a Jenga set or your favorite board game and ask guest to sign the board or game pieces. Each time you play the game, you'll be reminded of all the fun you had at your wedding and all the friends and family you were able to share the special occasion with.


7. Message in a Bottle Guest Book.


Decorate a wine bottle and have guests drop their advice and well-wishes into it. This creates a time capsule that you guys can open on your first wedding anniversary. Enjoy reading all the notes together as your reminisce that magical day!

We hope you enjoyed these different ways of creating a guest book for your wedding.

Caring for Your Wedding Dress Before & During the Wedding

With the help of Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, you've found your dream wedding dress! The wedding, however, is still months away. You want to ensure your dress stays safe and in tip-top shape for the big day. Today's blog from the best bridal salon in Royal Palm Beach, Florida offers tips for caring for your dress, from how to store it and transport it to caring for it during the wedding.

Storing Your Wedding Dress


The best place to store your wedding dress is in a cool, dry place. A climate-controlled environment is very important when it comes to protecting your wedding gown. You want to avoid large swings in temperature and high humidity. Both can cause premature aging in lace and other delicate fabrics. Light tends to cause discoloration in fabrics, so be sure to keep your dress in a dimly lit or dark space, avoiding any harsh light. You probably want to avoid hanging it in a closet that is used daily. However, if you store it in the basement, you'll want to be weary of moisture. Consider using a dehumidifier in that area while you're storing your wedding dress. Avoid storing it in the attic, as everything from insects to roof leaks can cause damage to your dress.

Hanging Up Your Bridal Gown


Whether your wedding is weeks away or months away, you'll want to hang your dress up rather than storing it in a box. This will prevent your dress from becoming horribly wrinkled. As soon as you get your dress home, place it on a padded hanger (rather than a plastic one). Make sure to put your dress in some types of bag for protection while hanging and don't store it next to a bunch of other clothes. Give your dress some space to stay aired-out and unwrinkled. If you purchased your dress from a professional wedding dress shop in South Florida, they should provide you with a bust form and an extra long bag to help eliminate the need for extra pressing or steaming.

Transporting Your Wedding Dress


Keep your dress in the bag during transportation. If you're getting married close to home, you can lay your dress across the back seat of the vehicle. Avoid scrunching it up to fit in a small space, as this will cause wrinkles that will be difficult to get out. You don't want to steam your dress unless absolutely needed, and many delicate fabrics require professional care only. You don't want to risk damaging your bridal gown prior to walking down the aisle.

Your Wedding Dress on the Big Day 


Use extra caution around your dress on the big day. You and your girls will be getting ready together, and it's important that you all use caution to avoid damaging or staining the dress. As soon as you arrive at the venue, hang the dress up again. be sure that the train is not hanging out where it could get stepped on. Be sure to apply any perfume and hairspray before putting your dress on, as these products can stain or damage the fabrics. If you must do any touch-ups after you're dressed, be sure to cover your dress with a towel.

Emergency Bridal Gown Care During the Wedding


From makeup and lipstick to wine and food, there are a variety of different ways to easily stain your dress during your wedding. Use extra care when treating stains during your event. For makeup or lipstick, cover the area with cornstarch or baby powder, ensuring NOT to rub the area. Wait 15 minutes before removing the excess powder. This will mask the stain and preserve the area for cleaning by a professional after your wedding. For wine and beverage stains, do not apply water or other liquids that might dispense the stain. Instead, blot the area dry and then coat with powder as mentioned above for makeup stains.

Finding the Perfect Hairstyle for Your Wedding Dress

Once you've found your dream dress at the best bridal boutique in South Florida, it's time to start thinking about your hairstyle for the big day. Certain hair-do's work better with different dress styles. Keep reading to learn what type of hairstyle works best with the neckline you chose for your bridal gown.

1. Off-the-Shoulder Neckline. 


For an off-the-shoulder neckline, keep it elegant with a softly swept-up hairstyle. This will draw attention to the eye-catching, off-the-shoulder portion of the dress.

2. V-Neck. 


The point of a plunging v-neck is to show off some skin, in a sexy and romantic way. You don't want to cover that up with your hair, so be sure to go with a hairstyle that's at least halfway, if not all the way up.

3. Halter Neckline. 


For halter style dresses, a half-up, half-down type of hairstyle works great. This way the portion of your hair that is down can rest on your back, while the "up" part allows for showing off the front of the dress.

4. Strapless Neckline. 


The strapless neckline is probably the most universal when it comes to matching a great hairstyle with the dress. You can do pretty much anything with your hair and it will still look good with this style dress. If you want to show off your shoulders, go with an up-do. Like your hair down better? Go for it!

5. Sweetheart Neckline. 


The epitome of classic bridal style, the sweetheart neckline deserves to be paired with a polished, romantic hairstyle. Try some soft, glamorous curls to balance out the bare shoulders.

6. One-Shoulder. 


If you have a dress with just one strap, pull your hair to the opposite side. Try a low bun, a side pony or even a beautiful braid, draped over the non-covered shoulder. This helps offset the fabric on the other shoulder and balance out the look.

7. High-Neck. 


Anything with a high-neck, such as the boat neck, should be complimented with an up-do. By keeping your hair up out of the way, you'll be able to show off the intricate design of the fabric along the neckline.

Don't have your dress picked out yet? Come to the Palm Beaches' best bridal gown store to find it! Book an appointment today by calling 561-793-4633. At Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, our promise is to offer brides a truly enjoyable experience. We offer an exceptional choice of wedding gowns and bridal accessories at very attractive prices.

Guide to Finding the Perfect Wedding Cake

One of the most fun parts of wedding planning is finding the perfect wedding cake. With so many cake flavors and icing choices, where do you start? Today's blog from South Florida's best bridal boutique offers some tips to help you find the perfect cake for your special day!

1. Consider the Location and Climate. 


Determine your venue before getting your heart set on a certain type of cake. If your wedding is in Florida and outside, you'll want to think about the type of icing you choose very carefully. Fondant will withstand the heat better than a delicate buttercream.

2. Shop Around for Your Baker. 


The best part about choosing a wedding cake is getting to taste test all the varieties. Be sure to shop around for the right baker. Just because their cakes look pretty, doesn't mean they taste good. You want a combination of good looks and great taste. Ask around for recommendations; word-of-mouth is the best way to track down a great baker.

3. Come Up with a Budget. 


Talk with your fiance and/or wedding planner to determine where your cake falls on the list of wedding priorities. From there, determine what kind of budget you have to spend on a cake. The price of a cake is typically determined by the amount of servings you need, but the type of decorations you choose can greatly impact the price as well.

4. Look Online for Inspiration. 


While you don't want to get your heart set on one specific cake, you can definitely use social media for inspiration. Pinterest and Instagram are great places to start. Pick a few cakes that you like the look of so that your baker can get an idea of your style and tastes.

5. Start Searching Early. 


Don't wait until the last minute to try to find your perfect cake. While other aspects of the wedding may seem more important, don't neglect the cake. Most bakeries have their custom cakes scheduled out weeks in advance. Depending on how elaborate your design is, the baker may need some experimentation time and special ingredients may have to be tracked down. Make sure you have plenty of time to get exactly what you want.

From the wedding cake to your wedding dress, you want everything to be perfect on your big day! Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is here to help you find the wedding dress of your dreams. We offer the best selection of affordable bridal gowns at our bridal salon in the Palm Beaches. Call 561-793-4633 to make an appointment today!

10 Wedding Trends for 2018

A new year is upon us and that means new trends in the wedding industry! Are you planning a wedding in 2018? Then this blog is for you. Your favorite bridal salon in South Florida gather new trends in wedding attire, food, decor, venue, etc. and put them in one place to help with your wedding planning. Keep reading to learn about the new wedding trends for 2018.

Style: Bohemian Weddings

As far as themes or styles go, we'll be seeing a lot more bohemian weddings in 2018. From the dresses to the decor, this artsy style can be incorporated into all aspects of your wedding. Decor elements that we'll be seeing more of include dream catchers and crystals.

Decor: Dark, Moody & Purple 


Say goodbye to the light pastels and/or bright colors and hello to a darker palette. The big trend in the 2018 floral scene will be darker, detailed and textured florals. The Pantone color of the year was released, Ultra Violet. The hue to watch will be purple, including wine, lilac, lavender and mauve. Everything from flowers to invites and table decor will feature purples. This year is going to be all about the drama.

Attire: Off-the-Shoulder Necklines


Designers took note of the fact that many brides like the off-the-shoulder neckline. From dramatic ballgowns to fit and fare silhouettes, we should expect to see plenty more off-the-shoulder styles in 2018.

Accessories: Extravagant Capes 


Another trend coming back into style in 2018 is the wedding dress cover up. Inspired by the catwalk, flowing capes are a huge trend this year. Make a big entrance with a full length flowing cape or a heavily embellished style. A cover up can add so much personality to your wedding day look.

Food: Dessert Tables 


Traditionally, brides had a big wedding cake that all the guests would enjoy at the reception. (Don't worry they'll still have a cake and cake cutting ceremony.) However, trends are moving more toward entire dessert tables. More brides are choosing to offer a variety of dessert options, and creative ones at that. This could be in the form of an ice cream bar, candy station or table featuring cookies, cheesecakes and more. This way, everyone gets more dessert and more choices!

Venue: Indoor Weddings


Recently we've seen a lot of outdoor weddings. In 2018 though, the trend will be to move those ceremonies back indoors. However, the church or banquet hall won't be the venue of choice. People are looking for something new in their venue; industrial, loft-style spaces and rooftops or museums will be the venue of choice. Having high ceilings and open space makes the environment just as airy as the outdoors.

Entertainment: Photo Booths


Couples are finding new ways to keep their guests entertained. One trend that will continue strong through this next wedding season is the photo booth. People are getting more and more creative with the props as well.

Food: Unique Menu Options


More and more couples are opting out of the traditional 3-course sit down dinner. They're choosing their favorite foods over fancy meals. From big sharing plates to food trucks, the 2018 wedding scene could see some interesting wedding reception food options. More alternative options, such as tacos and sushi, will infiltrate the wedding scene. Some wedding will even feature interactive food stations for the guests to enjoy.

Accessories: Pearls 


The wedding accessory trend that's making a strong comeback is those lucky pearls. Everything from earrings and necklaces to headpieces and dress embellishments can feature pearls. If you're not a fan of sparkle, this is a classy way to incorporate embellishments.

Wedding: Less Bridesmaids 


In previous years, we've seen some brides get a little carried away with their bridal party! Some wedding featured more than a dozen bridesmaids. However, that's expected to change in 2018. It's predicted that brides will choose smaller groups with just a maid of honor and maybe 1 or 2 bridesmaids.

For all your wedding attire and accessories needs, come see us at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches! New arrivals at our Palm Beach bridal store include gowns from the new Morilee Spring Collection. Check these gorgeous dresses out at our trunk show happening January 26-28, by appointment only. Call 561-793-4633 to reserve your spot today!
