22nd February 2012

If it's a fuss-free occasion where everything is taken care of that interests you for your Sunshine Coast wedding, we may just have the venue for you.

How To Buy Your Wedding Dress Online

19th February 2012

  Okay, first let’s just say this is always going to be a gamble. Many brides are saving literally hundreds, even thousands, of dollars by ordering their dresses online. However, you need to weigh up whether or not the potential saving is worth the risk for you. Because you cannot touch, feel and try on the dress at the other end of the interwebs, you will run the risk of having something arrive that is not what you expected. However, there are ways of minimising the risk by arming yourself with a little knowledge. TRY IT ON Firstly, you’re going…

The Perfect Eyebrow for The Perfect Bride

15th February 2012

  If you have a Sunshine Coast wedding coming up, and you have not had your eyebrows professionally shaped, you better get your skates on, Missy! If there is one thing I'm an advocate of, it's eyebrow shaping. As a young lass, I suffered from mono. Not the illness, but mono of the brow kind. Think Bert of Bert and Ernie, think Mal Meninga, think Frida Kahlo.  Years of waxing and plucking ensued, and while it was certainly a more preferable alternative to the old forehead caterpillars growing wild and free, I would often suffer from a reaction to the…

Children at Weddings

14th February 2012

Having children at your wedding, whether they are your own, relatives’ children or the offspring of your close friends, is very special indeed. Most children love to dress up and be part of a special occasion. Well really, to them, it’s a party, and who doesn’t love a party! Of course usually a wedding is an occasion for parents to kick up their heels as well, so wouldn’t it be nice if you could have the best of both worlds at your Sunshine Coast wedding. Children’s laughter and games and all dressed up in their gorgeous little flowergirl dresses and…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

13th February 2012

Happy Valentine's Day one and all! We are really excited, because obviously there will be many more engaged couples planning their Sunshine Coast weddings after today… It's inevitable on the most romantic day of the year. We know many people don't see the special in this holiday of love, (for example, my Manfriend, who calls it a holiday about Paganism and fornicating! As though that's a bad thing…), but we lust it with all our hearts. What's not fun about telling the one you like/love/heart that they're special to you and giving and receiving cheesy gifts?  To celebrate our fave…
