Cultural Traditions Around the World

Ever get tired of the basic wedding traditions like the bouquet toss or garter grab? Well check out some of these interesting wedding traditions found all over the world!

Let’s take you to Germany first, where housekeeping is important right from the get go.  Guests throw dishes on the ground to ward off evil spirits that might be lurking. The couple is to then clean up the dishes together learning the valuable lesson that working together allows them to face any challenges that are thrown at them.

If housekeeping is not your thing, how about entertaining your taste buds? Newlyweds in Russia share a type of sweetbread called karavaya, which is said to bring prosperity and faithfulness due to the wheat and interlocking rings. The partner that takes the biggest bite without using their hands is said to be considered the head of the family.

Last but certainly not least is the traditional Camel dance from Niger. In West Africa a camel is brought to the reception in the desert and dances to music while being surrounded by wedding guests getting their groove on as well. 

Hope you enjoyed all these new traditions! Stay tuned for more blog posts!

Toss Bar Trend

Have you heard of a toss bar?

This is one of this year’s biggest trends. Instead of handing out petals, herbs and sparkles to toss at the ceremony or reception, let your guests make their own cones! Giving a variety of options will make your give away unique! From a variety of herbs to different coloured petals there are a lot of options you can have to make your toss bar special!

Here are some examples of our favourite toss bars! 

Try one of these at your wedding!

And make sure you stay tuned for our next blog post!

Long Curls or Slick Up-Dos: Part Two Long Curls

Here is part two of the Up-Do vs. Down Do wedding hairstyles.  Down Dos are exactly what some brides want to encompass on the day of their wedding. Long beautiful curls full of volume and life. There are so many ways to make curls shine.

 We are going to start off with the softer curls. Beach waves if you must. These waves are perfect for any bohemian themed or beach wedding. They are little and elegant and can be accomplished with any hair type.

Next we have the beautiful curls. All by themselves with no added pieces. These curls are stunning and are perfect when framing your face. Perfect for most dresses, but not ideal for a really hot day. Having your hair down can make it too hot during pictures and dancing.

You can also put some pieces up. This can help in the warmer summer months to keep you cool.  It makes for a beautiful hairstyle adding braids and twists.

Another option is to add a few flowers throughout the curls. Having a mix of braids, curls and flowers can make your look unforgettable.

The hairstyle you have on your wedding day is a big decision. This decision should be based on your dress, make up and even your personal style. Hopefully this helps makes that decision easier.

Stay Tuned for our next blog post!
