How to Be an Amazing Maid of Honor

Have you been chosen to be a Maid of Honor? Congratulations! As a Maid of Honor you’re the bride’s right hand, number one source of support (after the groom), and overall helper. But apart from that, you’re also her confidant and most trusted ally for everything and anything wedding planning related. Here’s what you can do to live up to the role and be the best MOH your bride could ever ask for.

(1) Take initiative.

Many brides get overwhelmed with everything they have to do. Take initiative when you see your best friend feeling lost or looking stressed. Better yet, step in early on so it doesn’t even have to come to that point.

(2) Offer to accompany the bride.

Many times the bride and groom dive into wedding planning head on together. But that doesn’t mean you can’t offer to help. There are things that only a fellow lady will understand and there will be times when the groom is busy. Part of taking initiative is offering to be by you bride’s side at any given time.

(3) Get the bridesmaids involved.

Even if you’re ready to help your bride on anything and everything, wouldn’t it be even better if the whole tribe steps in too? You can get a lot more done if there are more hands to help out.

An Intimate Wedding Styled Photo Shoot Inspired by a Sculptor’s Studio in Portugal

One of the things we miss the most about traveling is the inspiration it brings. Seeing different places, meeting people from all walks of life, and just being an environment that’s strange and new can spark inspiration. Thankfully, today’s styled shoot is here to gift us with loads of inspiration and fill our need for awe and wonder. Nicole Please Weddings joined hands with Kuenzli Photography, GOMANGO Wedding Films, and MyAwina to bring this styled wedding shoot to life. Inspired by a sculptor’s studio nestled in a quintessential fishing village along the Portuguese coastline, this intimate wedding setup made use of soft shades of sand, grey and sage. To accentuate the Portuguese maritime vibe, MyAwina added large basket lamps and fishing nets to the floral installations. The table setting included a stunning flower chandelier with dried lotus leaves, lisianthus, white bougainvillea and amaranthus, while the rest of the room featured various stone pieces and artworks. The muses of the shoot, Dina and Yannik wore attires in the same palette, with Dina sporting a modern dress and cape combo. But out of all the well-thought-out details, what came as a surprise to us was the deconstructed stone wedding cake by A Cake Story. Who would have thought a casual scene along the Portuguese coastline could turn an empty room into this unconventional and artistic wedding setup? Scroll on through to see the rest of the stunning elements of this styled shoot now.

Your Style Guide for An Ultra Chic Minimalist Wedding

Less is more–we’re sure you’ve heard this countless times already. The increase in minimalist weddings these days is proof enough that you really don’t need a lot of decoration–or very luxurious ones–to achieve a stunning wedding day. You can still have an utterly romantic and memorable wedding even with details that are more toned down. If you love the minimalist trend but are still clueless as to how to achieve such a wedding, this style guide is exactly what you need! In this feature, we break down the essential elements behind an ultra chic minimalist wedding.

 

(1) Consider a bouquet with minimal foliage. Pick flowers that are striking on their own, like tulips or orchids!

(2) Keep your table looking clean. You can still add decorations and flowers, but the overall look should still look neat. You can stick to neutral colors to tone down the decorations.
