5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Wedding Vows

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.22″ custom_padding=”3px|||||”][et_pb_row make_equal=”on” padding_top_bottom_link_2=”false” _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”||0px|||”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”65px|||” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.6″ text_font=”||||||||” header_2_line_height=”1.8em” module_alignment=”center” custom_margin=”-85px|||||” custom_padding=”||0px|||”]When you daydream about your wedding ceremony, do you envision yourself vowing to love, honor and protect your beloved as per tradition, or do you wish to exchange vows that are more tailored to your relationship? If you prefer the latter, you and your partner will likely be writing your own vows. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so you want to be sure your words strike the right chord of sentimentality and personal significance. (No pressure!) Hidden Creek Events knows how important it is to get everything just right on your special day, so here are some of our best tips for crafting the perfect promises to make at the altar.

Tip 1: Get the Timing Right

Even the most gifted writers seldom get it right on the first try. The rest of us need time to find the right words and revise them, sometimes several times. With that in mind, give yourself a generous head start before your wedding. Some couples start working on their vows as soon as they get engaged, while others wait until just a week or two before the ceremony, after most of the frantic planning is finished. It’s really never too early to start, but there is something to be said for waiting until things have calmed down and you can give your vows your undivided attention.

Tip 2: Reflect on Your Love

Did you and your partner meet in a memorable way? What attracted you to them? When did you know they were the one you wanted to spend your life with? Which of their qualities make you smile? What can you promise that would mean the world to them? Put it in the vows! These are the elements and stories that will make your vows uniquely yours.

Tip 3: Inject Some Humor

It can be risky to crack jokes during emotional moments, but as long as you follow some guidelines, you should be just fine. First, make sure the humorous anecdote is lighthearted and kind-spirited. It should be a story that paints your beloved in a good light, not something that causes them embarrassment. Second, don’t overdo it. Humor should punctuate your vows for maximum impact, not overpower their solemn message. Finally, get second opinions from someone whose judgement you trust. If you decide not to use a joke or anecdote in the vows, you can always put it in a wedding speech.

Tip 4: Hire a Ghostwriter

Seriously. If you have a message in mind but can’t arrange the words how you like, there’s no shame in some professional help! Ghostwriters, sometimes referred to in the wedding industry as “vow whisperers”, can help you overcome writer’s block, help you find more details to add to your vows, and stay true to your voice and tone so that everyone knows the vows are coming from your heart.

Tip 5: Breathe. You’ve Got This.

The most beautiful words are the ones spoken with love. You don’t have to be a poet or use flowery language to write meaningful vows that you’ll cherish and uphold. All you have to do is be sincere, and your words will have the impact you want them to have.

5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner NOW

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.22″ custom_padding=”3px|||||”][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.0.6″ custom_padding=”0px|||||”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.0.2″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.6″ header_2_line_height=”1.8em” custom_margin=”13px|||||” custom_padding=”31px|||||”]

Planning a wedding involves much more than choosing a dress and a color scheme. It requires organization, coordination, and plenty of time – time you might not have if your wedding date is looming and you’re still juggling fittings, tastings, seating charts, and a full-time job. Fortunately, Hidden Creek has an experienced wedding coordinator to take care of every little detail so you can enjoy your special day. Every bride could use some help now and then, so here are five reasons you should consider enlisting the help of a professional wedding planner.

1). They Do This Full-Time

Planning a wedding is a full-time job. Your engagement might begin with blissful visions of twirling around in your dress and watching your ring sparkle with every motion of your hand, but it will soon give way to the hectic reality of wedding planning.

Once most couples get home from work and take care of their children or pets, the last thing they want to do is get measured for their wedding outfits or try and coordinate vendor services. Few people realize how many moving parts make up a successful wedding until they try to plan it on their own. A professional planner does this for a living, so you can count on them to make sure everything gets scheduled and done.

2). They Know What’s In

Having a hard time finding the right theme for your wedding? If you want something more personal than roses and champagne but don’t know how to capture your vision, a wedding planner can definitely help. They know what’s trendy and what’s tired as wedding themes go. They can help you come up with a theme that’s playful, romantic, or both! Let them get to know you and your partner and prepare to be impressed by their creative suggestions.

3). They’ll Keep You Within Budget

Some couples balk at the idea of paying a wedding planner to keep things organized, but they don’t realize the value a good planner can bring. Once you outline your budget, your planner will look for goods and services that fit within that range. Almost any theme can be pulled off simply or lavishly. Brides on a budget will find that a wedding planner helps them save more money overall. Hidden Creek’s all-inclusive wedding packages include the service of our professional wedding coordinator.

4). They’ve Got Connections.

Wedding planners know how to get things done, usually at a discount. They know all the best caterers, photographers, bakeries, and florists. Look for a planner who has been working in your area for several years; they probably know everyone in the local wedding trade, and they could finagle some discounts to help you get more for your money.

5). They’re Familiar with the Fine Print.

Vendor contracts aren’t always user-friendly, and there is almost always fine print. If you’re not familiar with contracts, you could find yourself missing an important date or being held liable for fees and penalties. It’s always a good idea to have a professional wedding planner look over the paperwork before you sign the dotted line to make sure you know everything you and the vendor are responsible for.

10 Special Ways to Have “Something Blue” at Your Wedding

[et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.22″ custom_padding=”3px|||||”][et_pb_row make_equal=”on” padding_top_bottom_link_2=”false” _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”||0px|||”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”65px|||” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.2″ text_font=”||||||||” header_2_line_height=”1.8em” module_alignment=”center” custom_margin=”-85px|||||” custom_padding=”||0px|||”][/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.2″]

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” This old English tradition has been observed at weddings around the world and has a timeless appeal for brides both traditional and modern. Today we’re going to look at the origin of this wedding ritual and discover new ways to incorporate something blue into your ceremony. You don’t have to be the superstitious type to have fun gathering all the items the tradition recommends and appreciating the sentiment behind them.

The Rhyme That Started It All

The original saying has been traced back to 19th-Century England, where it appeared in an 1876 Lancashire newspaper. The author described a bride as adhering to an ancient custom by wearing:

“Something olde,
something new,
something borrowed,
something blue –
and a sixpence in her shoe!”

Something old was worn to protect the child that would result from the union. Something new represented the potential for future happiness. Another item was borrowed from a happily married couple to transfer some of their luck to the newlyweds. Something blue represented fidelity and trust. And the sixpence in the bride’s shoe was a lucky token to bring prosperity.

Traditionally, the “something blue” requirement has been met with simple things like a blue gemstone in a ring, a blue garter hidden beneath the bride’s skirts, or a blue ribbon pinned to her dress. If you’d like to do something a little more unique, here are 10 ideas to inspire you!

Your Wedding Ring

You might have heard diamond wedding rings aren’t as popular today as they once were. Between the price and the ethical questions surrounding diamond production, more of today’s brides are opting for alternative stones. Make your ring unique with a deep blue sapphire, a rare blue spinel, or an aquamarine the color of the ocean.

Your Manicure

Let your nails serve as a visual representation of your love and faithfulness by dressing them in shades of blue. From dark navy to bright cornflower and soft “Tiffany” blue, there’s a shade to compliment every color palette.

Your Dress

You can make a bold statement by wearing a blue gown, or opt for more subtle embroidery and embellishments in shades of blue.

Your Lighting

Our venue’s romantic uplighting can be switched to blue during your first dance as a married couple to signify your commitment to each other.

Your Cocktails

Keep your guests refreshed with Blue Lagoon margaritas, Sapphire martinis, and sparkling Something Blue champagne cocktails. Blue curaçao makes it easy and tasty!

Your Bouquet

Modern brides are going down the aisle carrying everything from roses to succulent arrangements. Why not dot your bridal bouquet with blue blossoms?

Your Headpiece

Whether your veil will be crowned with a tiara or a floral headpiece, accents of blue will make it uniquely beautiful. The veil itself could also be embroidered with blue edges in your favorite shade.

Your Ring Pillow

A blue satin or velvet ring pillow would be a sweet addition to any wedding ceremony. The ringbearer could wear a blue boutonniere to match!

Your Flower Basket

If you have flower girls at your wedding, they’ll certainly enjoy carrying a beautiful blue basket and sprinkling blue petals on the path you’ll walk down.

Your Getaway Car

At the end of the night, you and your new spouse could use a blue vehicle to make your getaway. Whether it’s a restored classic car, an electric blue motorcycle, or a horse carriage draped with blue fabric, it’s sure to make a lasting impression!

How to Face Bridal Beauty Emergencies Head On

It’s your big day, and you woke up like this… but your face is far from #Flawless. Now what? At Hidden Creek, we know every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day, so we’ve compiled a list of beauty emergency quick-fixes to keep you looking your best no matter what. We’ve even included some bonus beauty tips from brides who’ve been there. With this advice in hand, you’ll be able to stand tall and undefeated in your wedding photos, knowing you conquered the beauty emergencies life threw at you.

The Emergency: Puffy Eyes, Bloated Face

Maybe you didn’t sleep well the night before. Maybe you overindulged at your bachelorette party. Whatever the reason, when you looked in the mirror this morning, you saw a poofier version of yourself, and you don’t like it. Don’t despair! Help is as close as your kitchen cabinet.

The Fix: Ice and caffeine are your friends. Try pressing ice-cold spoons against your eyes to get the swelling to go down. Small ice bags also work well, or you can use a bag of frozen peas in a pinch. The coldness makes your blood vessels contract, reducing swelling in the affected areas. For a full-face bloat, try a facial mask made of instant coffee – and then drink a cup for good measure. The caffeine content has ways of making your body pass excess fluids quickly.

The Emergency: Wedding Day Breakout

Pimples love to pay us a visit in stressful times, and a once-in-a-lifetime wedding day seems to bring them out of the woodwork! If these uninvited guests show up, give them the boot with this time-tested advice. (And remember, photos can always be retouched!)

The Fix: First, wash your face with a gentle cleanser. RESIST THE URGE TO PICK. Apply some drying zit cream or a paste of crushed aspirin and water to the spots. Leave your face bare for as long as you can before your ceremony. When it’s time for makeup, use a mattifying facial primer and some waterproof concealer to hide the redness.

The Emergency: Hair Fell Flat

Your hair was fine yesterday, but it seems to have lost all its volume overnight. You don’t have time to wash and blow-dry it again before you need to start preparing for the wedding. What can you do to make it look full and gorgeous again? Quite a few things, actually.

The Fix: Take it in steps. First, make a quick trip to the beauty store (or your bathroom, if you’re well-stocked) and snag some dry shampoo. If you have light-colored hair, a volumizing powder, or even baby powder in true emergencies, will leave your hair looking more voluminous. Pat it on generously and comb through it. For brunettes, dry shampoo spray for dark hair will do the trick. Still too flat? Enlist the help of someone who knows how to back-comb. If all else fails, go for a simple, yet elegant updo.

Bonus! Beauty Tips from Moms-of-the-Bride

Moms won’t steer you wrong on your wedding day. Here is some beauty advice from real mothers and grandmothers to their cherished brides:

  • Don’t overpluck your eyebrows. They might never grow in right again.
  • Skip the spray tan. You could end up orange, blotchy, and staining your dress.
  • Be wary of trendy makeup. Your photos will look outdated before their time.
  • Use waterproof mascara. You’ll thank me later.
  • Don’t forget your sunscreen, especially if it’s summer in Texas!

Thank goodness for moms who tell it like it is.
