Meet the Bridal Bud: Poinsettia Bud

Posted by poinsettia on Sep 16, 2010

Hi. I’m Poinsettia Bud. So nice to meet all of you! I am very exciting to be a part of the BridalBud Community and get feedback and suggestions throughout my planning process.  I got engaged on July 6, 2010 to the love of my life.  Two months have passed and I am still on cloud 9, seriously.

In two months time, we have a date, a wedding dress, a wedding planner, a guest list, and a lot of ideas.  We went back and forth deciding between a beach destination wedding or a Washington DC wedding.  Even though a beach destination wedding sounds like an amazing time, there is something to be said about bringing my closest family and friends to the city I love.  Because of this, we “plan” on having a New Year’s Eve Wedding on December 31, 2011.  We are paying for the wedding on our own so we are having a small, intimate wedding and reception.  We will be inviting 80 of our closest friends and families to celebrate our nuptials and bring in the new year with us.  Sounds great, right?  Well, I say “plan” because we have already run into some road blocks because of our desired date – venue limitations, noise ordinances, time schedules, time and a half pay for catering services, and corporate party and event conflicts, just to name a few.

What do you think about weddings around holidays?  Have you ever attended a New Year’s Eve wedding?

Pros and Cons of Having a Holiday Weekend Wedding

Posted by fkhosravi on Jun 10, 2010

If you live in the big city like I do, you would love the summer holiday weekends. The city is less crowded, less traffic and less pollution. But as much as this sounds good, if you decide to do your wedding on a summer weekend with a holiday attached you should consider a few facts:


  • Although big cities are less crowded and have less traffic and are more ideal for traveling guests, if you live in a suburb or smaller city you may want to stay away from the holiday weekends since the quietness does not work there and the whole city will look and feel dead instead.
  • Many people will take advantage of the holiday weekend therefore there will be  huge land and air traffic. Some guests may decide  not to go through the headache of the traffic, crowded airports and many stops on the way. Also most of the times the travel fares and hotels are more expensive during holiday weekends.
  • A lot of people may have made long standing plans already.  School is another fact you should consider. When kids don’t have summer school it is the best time for the families to plan the ever wanted family vacation.
