Per rendere più orginale, alternativo e divertente il tuo matrimonio ti proponiamo un banchetto street food, stupirai indubbiamente i tuoi ospiti con cibi semplici ma gustosi preparati sul momento.

ecco alcune idee:

per l’apertitivo potrete allestirlo sopra un’ape con tantissime varietà di stuzzichini e cocktail.

perchè non adibitre un camioncino decorandolo con illuminazioni e fiori, per proporre le specialità tipiche italiane come arancini, olive all’ascolana, supplì, gnocco fritto e tigelle.

altrimenti se preferite la cucina orientale preparate un sushibar con tutte le bontà giapponesi oppure golosità americane come hotdog e hamburger

per chi invece ha in mente un party con cibi vegani allestire un carrettino che richiami la natura con tutti i cibi tipici..

fateci sapere qual’è il vostro preferito!!!

salve a tutti oggi cercheremo di aiutarvi nella scelta delle vostre fedi nuziali, un dettaglio ricco di significato e valori che vi accompagnerà e ricorderà le vostre promesse per tutta la vita..

Il termine fede infatti deriva dal latino “fides” e vuol dire fedeltà, infatti fides era il nome della dea romana che rappresentava la lealtà… 

ma adesso veniamo a noi…

Dovrete sapere la misura esatta del votro dito, se non la ricordate potrete prendere un vecchio anello e misurare la circonferenza con un metro

Appurata la misura passiamo alla scelta dei materiale, solitamente viene usato l’oro e il platino in quanto non hanno problemi di manutenzione.. altrimenti se il budget non è elevato potrete optare per l’argento, acciaio o ottone.

è possibile incidere i nomi degli sposi e la data, altrimenti grazie alle nuove tecnologie potrete scrivere una frase (non troppo lunga altrimenti sarebbe illegibile), che simboleggia il vostro amore.

Potrete inoltre dare un tocco di eleganza aggiungendo pietre o brillanti secondo la misura ed il numero che preferite..

I have 2 table extenders from my already long dining table so I have decided to paint them with black board paint and draw some great typographic posters on them with quotes or lyrics that I really love. They’ll be hung in the kitchen in front of the dining table. I have bought chalkboard pens so I get nice crisp lines as opposed to real chalk.

The only problem is, there are so many quotes and lyrics that I love, I’m having a pretty tough time deciding.

There are some lyrics that are really personal to me which would be fine I guess, if I lived alone. But, they mean nothing to my husband or children. So then I started to think about lyrics that I love which would be more appropriate for my family. Stand by Me: Ben E King was the first that came to mind. As I have 2 boards, I need 1 long quote or two quotes that go really well together.

ben e king stand by me ben e king stand by me

So I think these two sections of lyrics would be great together. However, after searching for inspiration, I’m drawn to some beautiful quotes by Roald Dahl which I think are maybe more appropriate for my children. I think it’s important to grow up around great words.  I know they’ll grow up reading his stories.

I like this quote because  from a Midsummer Night’s dream, my daughter has always been quite petite and has been struggling with her speech and language, and so, even if she doesn’t understand these words yet, it reminds me that she’s strong.b3fa0ed9a2994b8cba814764a68f87cf

I think I need more boards!!!

We all know that whilst you’re busy getting all the photos done after the vows the rest of the guests can get slightly bored so it’s always a good idea to have a few snacks and drinks available for them to nibble on and get merry and mingle until the sit down meal begins.

So if you’re planning an Italian themed wedding then a pizza stand is a great idea. This could be done in a number of ways but will depend a lot upon your chosen venue. If you have waiters at this point, they could offer round pre cut slices on some lovely and rustic wooden boards.pizza station italian wedding

Alternatively you could set up a pizza table filled with a variety of gourmet pizzas with cute little labels in frames that the ones shown here. This could also be a great option if you’re having an afternoon meal and you don’t want the expense of a second sit down meal later on in the evening. pizza italian wedding

There are some great ideas for creating a pizza food bar and they work for some many ocassions and so many people just love pizza it’s sure to be a huge hit. Have a look at some more ideas here. Don’t forget the cute sign!

Lantern Wedding favours

Lanterns make great favours, they’re really current and pretty, lots of people use lanterns as decorations in the home, they can easily be used afterwards, I think they’re especially cute in the garden or bathroom (when you finally get chance for a long hot soak).lantern favors

They are easy to decorate yourself, but to be honest, they’re such pretty objects by themselves a simple ribbon bow and favour tag would do. You could place a favour bag or tulle inside holding 5 dragees, altrnatively you could attach it to the handle and place a t-light or small candle inside.

SO we’ve all heard of a candy bar / sweet stall but if you’re getting married in scorching Italy, wouldn’t it be great to have a gelato bar? gelato van weddingWe’ve found some super cute traditional gelato buggies that would look really traditional and great in photos. Plus your guests will really appreciate the yummy and refreshing gelato.Gelateria-Carboni italian gelato

You could select flavours to suit your colour theme too. It’s a great way to keep your guests busy between the service and meal especially if you’ll be using this time to squeeze in photographs. 615f5ac9797cfd5f66a98ae34b9f9d96

If you don’t want guests to fill up in gelato it could be an alternative to a desert or even a wedding cake!

Bougainvillea Wedding

Bougainvillea is a stunning Mediterranean plant. It comes in a range of bright colours, mainly: reds, pinks, purples and oranges. It flowers, with the right conditions, from spring right through to late autumn. When it’s in flower, you don’t see many leaves just a burst of colour from its delicate papery blooms.

bougainvillea-wedding-decor_1439-1024x765

Bougainvillea is great to use at weddings although be wary that once cut the stems will go droopy quite quickly and may need some support, if your preparing the flowers youself, have a mini test run. It’s also worth noting that there are thorns so be careful when cutting and arranging. As it tends to grow in such a sprawling big plant with hundreds of flowers if should be fairly cheap (or free) to use.

Another great idea is to collect fallen bougainvillea flowers or pick them and allow them to dry slightly (too much and they will go brown) and use them as confetti. It would be a good idea to place them in baskets near the exit of your venue or give your guests small boxes or cones pre filled.

Cake Idea

Whilst talking to my lovely colleague, Isabella, about wedding cakes and flicking through images. she told me that this is a popular idea at the moment. Instead of having one large cake, lots of people choose to have a variety of cakes made and the guests can sample a selection. It’s a great idea if you have fussy eaters amongst you and surely the best way to please everyone!
