Fall Wedding Colors

September 1, 2016

September can be the most popular wedding month here at Newlands.  Many consider it early fall, but here in BC it can be late summer.  It’s a month that can incorporate the golds and plums of fall as well as the greens of summer.  How about a Carmel apple candy buffet!  What Newlands Clubwed loves about September is the sun sets at just the right time so the reception room is filled with beautiful candle light ambiance for the first dance. That’s Amore!


A Sweet Way to Entertain your guests!

Why not set out a candy table for your wedding favors.  A candy table serves as a social meeting spot at your reception.  If you think only kids go for the scrumptious treats you haven’t seen a group of candy crazed 40 somethings giggle and laugh as they pick their favorites.


It’s a way to say thank you!  Thanks for coming to our wedding please enjoy this treat on us!


How do you pick the colour for your wedding theme?

July 1, 2016

You will be asked what are your wedding colours?  Do you have a theme?

It’s tempting to jump straight in and think about colours.   As you search for inspiration, look for colours that you are consistently drawn to. Play around with different combinations and consider how they make you feel and whether they fit with your wedding day style.



As you narrow your inspirations down to create a mood board, look to see which colours are naturally coming through. These should form the basis of your colour palette.

“I’d rather wear flowers in my hair, than diamonds around my neck…. Anonymus

Wedding Season is upon us, and we love keeping up with the current bridal colours and trends. Like every bride, you imagine how you want to look on your wedding day. First comes the dress, choosing the perfect hairstyle, makeup. Every last accessory down to the style of bouquet, to perfect your one of a kind look. Bridal trends come and go, and at Newlands we have seen them all. One in particular that seems to stick around is hair flowers, and for a good reason! Hair flowers are an elegant way to add colour and femininity into your bridal look. Whether it be a lush flower crown for the Boho bride, or a romantic arrangement to pin into a dainty up due. custom made hair florals are a unique, and a fun way to bring out your inner flower child. For the sentimental bride, all pieces can be dried or preserved and saved as a keepsake.

“We’re getting married” dot com

May 1, 2016

These days everyone has all the information they need, instantly at their fingertips and your wedding plans are included in this social-media-consumed era. With the explosion of “Wedding Websites”, gone are the days of snail-mail and waiting at the post office for RSVPs. The internet is flooded with various sites dedicated to helping today’s brides and grooms share their wedding information on a fun, unique and personalized website of their own. Guests can visit their site to find everything they need to know about the couple’s big day including the date, time, location and registry as well as a little story about the couple, photos and how they met or the proposal, should the couple choose to include these fun details. The sites are very helpful to the bride and groom as they can send out “Save the Dates” and “RSVP” emails straight from the site. Unfortunately, paper RSVPs occasionally get lost and forgotten and there’s no stress for the bride like waiting on last minute numbers to give their wedding planner, so couples and their guests love the ease of visiting a website and clicking their RSVP right then and there.

I’ve listed four of the top wedding sites on the web, popular for their ease of use and wide range of templates. Their costs vary depending on length of use and some different options offered.
