Romance is a precious element of love and should be absolutely highlighted during a wedding. A wedding is a union of two souls and romance is the factor that made them decide to spend their lives together. Much before you both decided to tie the knot, you started having butterflies in your stomach rising only for this man. And we’re sure, so did he! You both fell in love with every little thing that the other did and had thoughts of being married at some point or the other. That thought is what led you to this day and that very thought was implanted into your minds from all the romance. And when a wedding is considered to be a beautiful destination and a new beginning for love, both at once, why not infuse it with as much romance as you can? Your wedding reception can be decorated in style (and budget!) to convey the importance of romance in your love story. If you are a bride who has always been dreaming of a fairytale-style romantic wedding, this one’s a good read for you. Zola brings you a compilation of all the things, little and big, that you can do with your wedding decor to take your wedding notches higher on the romantic scales!

Our beautiful brides, we totally understand where all the fluidity and current pandemic situation have brought your well-planned wedding to. But you’ve gotta remember that all that stress is not going to make it happen, like Poof! It is only going to make it worse for you. Not only will it dull down your wedding glow, but it will also obstruct your ability to think progressively. Do not forget the bridal resolutions we lovingly crafted for you! Therefore, it is imperative to lose that stress and embrace a calm and then work towards planning your wedding during COVID-19. And this applies to an otherwise normal corona-free world as well. A wedding whirlwind is much more than just popping the prosecco and letting the confetti fly! Oooh, that sure is one of the best parts but there’s a long road that leads to that moment. And usually, this road is full of boundless firsts, unexpected twists, and some villainous roadblocks! This write-up talks about smoothening this journey and planning your wedding while keeping the stresses at bay. So, read on to learn how you can manage to enjoy every second of your wedding planning.

So, it continues. The quarantined life, the social distancing, and life being at a temporary halt. But love continues to grow. Even more now, as everyone has gotten time to relish the little joys of life that were earlier missed somewhere in the cacophony of busy lives. As you FaceTime each other, endlessly, every inch of you wants to be with them and the distance only seems to add on to the desperation. And if you happen to be quarantined together, you’re lucky you have them around. However, in both scenarios, love should not suffer. If proposals were in order but have only been deferred as your travel plans were cut due to the pandemic or social distancing has left you with no options, think again! There is still so much that can be done while staying socially distant and quarantined. Remember how we talked about the Parisian proposal in Virginia in last week’s wedding inspo? Yeah, we are thinking on those lines. Virtual progressiveness has brought the entire world to your doorstep. So, if you are thinking about how to take your love story to the next level in the given situation, we have gotcha covered! From romantic dine-ins, reliving magical memories, and bringing your travel destination to your place, to virtual bands and so much more, this blog from Brides is sure going to be your soul food.
Ah, all the things love makes you do! And private couples, we are talking about elopements. It’s a different feeling when you get married in solitude, in complete privacy, where you are only surrounded by your love. Elopements have become increasingly popular this year, given the pandemic settings all around the world. Not just couples who are private, but also couples who did not wish to let go of their original wedding date have taken their vows through an elopement on that very day. If you are planning to elope, but are wary about letting the news out to everyone, here’s your answer. A wedding celebration is extremely private to the couple and depends entirely on their personalities and choices. Couples who wish to exchange their wedding vows in complete privacy and solitude are just as common as those who wish to do it in a full-blown celebration style! However, the message that needs to be sent to all the loved ones in the former has to be carefully thought of, as they aren’t invited to be a part of your big day. Enter elopement announcement etiquettes! This amazing blog by The Knot talks about the importance of elopement announcement etiquettes, wordings, and best cards to do so. Take a look to get a better understanding of how to announce your elopement most gracefully.
