Budget Ideas and Colour Trends for your Wedding 2013/2014!

Colour Trends, Ideas for your Wedding: Mustard, Deep Red & Grey

This ultra-modern wedding colour combination can be adapted to suit your vision and reflect your personalities! There is something very chique about having a base of silver or grey with a vibrant contrast of the red and mustard yellow for your wedding colour scheme.

Wedding Stubby Holders

Check out the image above, I love how they have been less formal about their bridesmaid dresses, a great idea for a budget wedding is to get the girls to buy their own bridesmaid dress and this way it could be a dress that they will wear again and will save any worries about shapes and styles to suit different girls! A great little gift for bridesmaids is a clutch bag to match your wedding colours — these girls are holding a yellow bag with Chevron pattern for a funky, modern look – you can find so many ideas like this on Etsy.com and I have even come across some personalised bags too!

Another fantastic money saving tip for your wedding is gifts for your guest and wedding favours that are homemade, if you are trying to avoid the extravagance and expense of a wedding cake then why not take lead from the image above that shows cute homemade cookies in the shape of a 3-tier cake, decorated with red hearts and tied with a ribbon! These are both ‘the wedding cake’ and the wedding favour!

Coolaz wedding stubby holders can also make a great non-expensive gift, we can personalise each of the coolers with an individual guest name so that place names are not required and your guests receive a personal thank you gift from you on the day!

Here’s a couple of ideas to help you with your wedding planning and choosing your colour combinations;

Unconventional Ideas for a Hens Party!

Unconventional Hens Party Ideas

For most brides-to-be the planning of your hen’s night will be left in the hands of your bridesmaids and close girlfriends. In the back of your mind you will more than likely be imagining a ‘typical’ hens night filled with cringe-worthy outfits, copious amounts of alcohol, a list of dares that you will want to forget, and photographic evidence of you with shirtless waiters that you will also want to destroy!

Hen Party Ideas

Some approriate style stubby holders for this type of hens might be like these…

Your hen’s party should really be a night of freedom to do whatever you please, to let your hair down, go crazy and celebrate your last days as a singleton! If you are not the most conventional of brides then make sure you put your foot down and offer up some ideas for a hen night and be clear about exactly what you would like to do for your hens celebration (and of course a list of the things that you don’t want to do!)

Glamping

In short Glamorous-Camping is a fantastic way to experience the fun of the outdoors without giving up your creature comforts! Grab a bunch of girls that you know will be keen to get involved and make your hens night away one to really remember!

Wedding Stubby Holders

Wherever you choose in location for your glamp site, with the increase in popularity the options vary from luxury to simplistic, with or without amenities and equipment. Dig deep to find the perfect setting for you and your girls. Swap your swag for a vintage inspired gypsy caravan or maybe a boho style bell tent decorated with bunting would suit what you are after – failing that you could always go DIY and create the perfect camping wonderland in your own secret spot.

Put up a few ‘no boys allowed’ signs and arrange outdoor hen night games like croquet, boules, wedding style mad libs or even woodland twister! Finish the night off with a meal cooked up in a camp oven followed by drinks around the campfire … Perfect for a girls night out!

Makeover & Photoshoot

If you fancy a bit of glitz and glamour and a stylish way to get the girls together for your hens celebrations then a makeover and photo shoot would be perfect!

Hen Party Ideas

A fantastic idea that will create a complete experience for you and your hens! Gather the girls together for champagne and refreshments then have your hair and makeup completed by a group of professionals and head into the studio for your glamorous hen’s photo-shoot! Check out the Runway Room or the Bachelorette Photoshoot in Melbourne for more ideas.

Once you have had your celebrity moment you could head into the city for a spot of dinner to finish your hens night in Melbourne. At the end of the day you will have a set of gorgeous memories and photographs from your hens night that you can share for years to come and not an album of shockers that you will have to try and hide from your groom, lol !

Murder Mystery Evening

Whether you go for a DIY hen’s party kit or an organised event, a murder mystery dinner party will be something really different to do on your hens night!
Choose your friends wisely and watch out… as one of them might be there to stab you in the back! Surround yourself with like-minded gals on your hens night that will be up for a laugh and a spot of fancy dress. You can dish out your hen night invitations beforehand with secret instructions about who each player in the game should be.

Hen Party Ideas

Make sure if you are hosting the mystery yourself to read the host instructions well in advance. They’ll typically provide ideas for your menu, decorations, costume ideas and brief character bios to give you an idea of who to assign which characters. But if you plan to join in the game (most box games allow the host to play too), don’t read the full character guides ahead of time or you’ll spoil the mystery for yourself!

A great way to keep the theme going throughout the night, create a custom design for your murder mystery hens night coolers:

Paintball – Bridesmaid Style!

Not for the feint hearted this is the ultimate in adventure playground for an alternative hen night party!

Why not ‘wedding it up’ and head off on an op-shop spree, search through the trash and treasure for the worst bridesmaid dresses that you can find, wear them on the playing field and you have your very own hens trash the dress – paintball style!

Hen Party Ideas

If you are completely going against the grain then this would be a great place to have a joint bucks or stag and hen party, consider it the final shoot down before your hen signs up to happily ever after!

Finishing your hen’s day with a few well-earned drinks is a must and as a thank you gift for all those that came along, here are a couple of colourful hens party stubby holder suggestions to help…
