10 Things Guest Really Care About

​10 Things Wedding Guests Really Care About 

While guests will be most delighted to be invited to a wedding in North Cyprus there are some etiquettes they will appreciate.

1: Timings and Direction:

When having a wedding abroad this is really vital as some guests may have never been to cyprus.

Make sure your invites and website is very clear with times, maps and directions. Info for transport and if you are arranging transportation the correct times and meeting points.

2: Menu options 

When sending out your invites include the menus and a section where guests can include if they have any allergies, intolerances and if they are a vegetarian. It is also vital for the wedding planner to have this info and which table they will be seated at so that the waiters can be informed. 

3: Running order

It always nice for the guests to know the order of the day and what will be up next. These can be included in your website, invites, or small cards given to the guests at the ceremony. Some couples are now opting for a wooden sign or blackboard at the entrance.

4: Childrens entertainment

Its always nice to keep the children entertained. If you have more than 5 children its quite nice to incorporate an area for childrens entertainment or a separate table for them all to be together. Childrens entertainment includes, a colouring and arts craft area, Jumbo games like jenga, connect 4. Even face painting goes down a treat. If you do not have many children then some crafts or colouring books always works a treat. These can be given as favours.

5: Thank yous

Your guests have travelled far for your special day it is always nice to include a big thank you in the speeches and to also give thank you notes with a small favour to show your appreciation. Favours such as fans and paper umbrellas are also appreciated in the heat of the day.

6: Fun and frolics over decorations

Its always nice to have the alcohol free flowing. 9 times out of 10 guests would prefer a larger budget over booze than decor

7: Fun speeches

Don't make the speeches too long and make them fun don't bore them or ramble on. You can include games in the speeches or have fun games on the tables for adults.

8: Plentiful Feasting

Although your guests will be having a full 3 course meal which will keep the guests satisfied, but after lots of drinking, the heat and dancing guests will never be so thankful for some snacks or finger food which can be arranged for the evening. 

9: Accommodation options

If your venue does not belong to a hotel it is a great idea to add a section to your website for various accommodation options for all budgets and contact details to arrange their accommodation and flight packages. Excursions and places to visit is also quite a good idea in this section 

10: An easy Exit

Guests will want to know what time the day will finish so they can arrange taxis or transportation for the end of the evening in advance. You can opt to arrange transportation like a coach which can have a few drop of points or some taxis to be there at the end of the evening. if not you can include taxi services to your website if your venue is far away and in the middle of no where.

Wedding Trends for 2018

 2018 is the year of modern, minimalist and metallic weddings. Foliage will be a huge part of  décor, giving the modern weddings a whimsical twist. Whites, greys and soft metallic colour schemes are the perfect palette to complement the green foliage and natural make-up is definitely back for good!  The ideal trends of a wedding abroad… I've picked a few of my favourite trends below :

The metallics of the moment silver and chrome 

Hanging flowers are the floral decor of the moment.

“Couples are keeping their guest tables simple and focusing more on ceiling treatments.” For an understated centre piece, one idea that  will be popular for 2018 wedding reception tables is a small cluster of vases with just one or two types of flowers.

Unique food is a priority.

“Something we have been hearing more and more from our couples is how important food is to them,” 2018 wedding trends are interactive appetizer stations, including roll your own sushi, cypriot style dishes “boreks”,  Doner for the end of the evening , and creative desserts.

Go all-out with the desserts.

Creative desserts,” “such as popsicles, custards and ice cream sandwiches”  or Turkish deserts are what couples are serving at the end of the night.

Nearly naked cakes

Goodbye naked cakes. The new trend in naked cakes is to have a thin scraping of buttercream on the outside, which keeps the cake from going dry while still letting the sponge poke through. Cake tables with smaller cakes in different flavours. Marbled cakes and metallic cakes will also be a big trend this year 

The “woodsy” look, foliage & Bell jars

This includes a lot of greenery in the florals and green as the wedding’s main colour. “We’ll also move away from burlap and see more wooden details,”  which  can include the invitation, table numbers, seating cards, tags, chargers, signage, chairs and tables.”

Bouquets and decorations with plenty of beautiful leaves not only give your wedding a natural woodland look, but they’re also a lot easier on the budget!

Edison bulbs

Edison bulbs are hanging exposed bulbs with glowing filaments and look fantastic hung under beams or clustered together for an urban take on a chandelier.  Fairly lights are still going strong.

Neon

Step aside, light-up letters – the new trend is neon signs!  and you can even get your own custom signs made, which will make for a great keepsake after the big day.

Crystals

Think geode wedding cakes, agate slice place names and quartz bridal accessories.  Just perfect

Mobile bars

From vintage camper vans to refurbished horse boxes, we’re seeing plenty of quirky options for mobile bars in 2018. Combine that with the recently popularity of prosecco, craft beers and gin bars at weddings, and you have yourself one hell of a party!

Bouquets

wildflower bouquets and natural arrangements continue to be popular for weddings, gardens looking arrangements with lavender and greenery.

Dahlias

Move over, peonies! The new hottest wedding flower in town is the delightful dahlia, which comes in a huge range of colours and is available from May to November, making it one of the most versatile wedding blooms around.

Table Wreaths

“To avoid the whole ‘I can’t see you across the table’ faux pas, brides are becoming more cautious about the height of the wedding centrepiece they choose, going for low and long rather than the more traditional tall arrangement. Table wreaths in soft, dusky shades to run the whole length of the tables are beautiful

Wedding Dress Trends:  

I must say this years trends are just perfect for a summer beach wedding

Romantic Flowing bohemian style dresses

Separates mix and match tops 

Pop of colour to your dress and floral details

Hair and make up

Natural dewy make up and maybe a pop of colour to the lips

Side partings and natural hair down styles

Top Knots
