Spring Wedding Ideas

Preparing your wedding invitations is the first place to start when planning your dream wedding! You should consider how you would like people to imagine your wedding vibe and use your invites to really set the tone of your wedding day for your guests.

This wedding colour combination chosen with a spring green, bright white and contrasting navy blue is a fabulous way to bring light and bright elements into your special day. Consider the wedding attire for your bridal party – you can see in the centre of the collage above that the bridesmaids wore a navy blue top with a green and white stripy skirt, this could then be replicated thoughout your design, something similar to below:

A modern twist that is becoming very popular is the use of photo props in your wedding photographs, this could be a DIY effort or you could hire a photobooth to do the job for you. Props should include the obligatory moustache and lips on sticks but can be anything you like from funny hats to feather boas! You could add a hint of this to your wedding stubby holder designs:

Perhaps you are having a garden wedding, this is a fantastic way to bring an outdoor and fresh feel to your wedding ceremony and reception. The use of green apples as your wedding table centrepiece will be sure to reflect the spring element of your wedding. Don’t forget that your coolers can double up as a place name, include a wedding guest name on each individual holder so that you have your bonbonniere / wedding favour gift idea and your place markers covered in one hit!

Colour Trends, Ideas for your Wedding: Mustard, Black & White

There is certainly something very sophisticated about the way black and white look together and then throw in some subtle colour or even something bold like this mustard yellow to make the perfect wedding colour combination.

Wedding Stubby Holders

Wedding traditions do not have to be set aside when you choose your colours, you can still have the classic 3 tier wedding cake and the table setting that you have always dreamed of, you simply get to add your own personal touch at the same time.

I love the black and white pattern in the image above that has been replicated onto the cake, the wedding table decorations and thank you gift box on each place setting. Go wild with your wedding flowers and include shades of mustard yellow in your bouquets. Spend some time visiting boutique shops in your area to gather ideas and ways to bring your chosen colour into your wedding.

From your wedding invitation ideas to your table decorations and place cards stay true to your colour decisions and you will have a perfectly themed wedding day.

Colour Trends, Ideas for your Wedding Stubby Coolers: Red, Yellow & White

If you are planning a vintage wedding in 2014 then you should definitely consider this red and yellow colour combination! Lightened off with the usual white wedding trimmings will make for some great wedding photographs like the one in the centre of this collage…

Wedding Stubby Holders

The modern twist of coloured paper straws for your wedding is becoming a very popular trend and is also a great and simple way to brighten up your wedding reception bar and tables, a little colour goes a long way. Be mindful of the time of year and make the best from seasonal wedding flowers for your bridal bouquets, white peonies and yellow freesia would match perfectly against the classic red rose.

The stunning combination of a yellow bridesmaid dress with bright red shoes will simply pop in your wedding photographs, the bride might like to match her shoes in with the girls and then dress the groomsmen and rest of the bridal party with matching wedding attire, buttonholes and other wedding accessories.

Couples these days tend to have a limited wedding budget and will choose a mostly DIY wedding, there are so many ways that you can make a saving, from creating your own wedding invitations and hand-making your decorations, to holding your ceremony later in the day and having an evening cocktail style reception so that you don’t have the expense of a sit down meal.

Coolaz’s wedding stubby holders are also a great and inexpensive wedding favour gift for your guests, they can also be personalised to match your wedding colours and theme to make cute decorations. You can add the bride and groom names along with the date of the event and even include an individual guest name to double up as a place card, so they will become table decoration, place card and thank you gift all-in-one, another great saving!

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!

Colour Themes For Your Wedding!

Put your best foot forward with your wedding pans and leap into 2013 knowing what’s hot and what’s not! Colours and trends are forever changing and it is hard to keep up with the fashions or to steer away from them in order to make your wedding day unique and memorable.

It is likely that you will have journeyed from one bridal store to another, collecting ideas for your wedding stationery, bomboniere, accessories and your bridal wear! Wedding colour combinations are of course a matter of preference and each couple will more than likely have a colour scheme that includes tones and shades that reflect their own personalities.

Here are a couple of the latest fashions hitting the wedding industry in 2013 …

Enticing Tangerine and Pink

Get the orange juice flowing with this exciting combination of tangerine and pink! From your wedding flowers to bridesmaid dresses there are so many ways that you can bring this colour into your theme, whether you go for subtle hints and the occasional drop of colour or go all out and make yours a pink and tangerine summer celebration that will certainly brighten everyone’s day!

Choose from orange roses and gerberas and red carnations in your bouquet, or go for a paper flower version in the brightest materials you can get your hands on. Don’t forget to add ribbons to your chairs and even wrap around your guest book, even the smallest detail will make for the perfect orange and pink delight!

Here is our wedding stubby holder suggestion;

Perfectly Pale Pink & Pewter Grey

This match of dusky colours will add a certain element of chic to your wedding. You can carry the theme from your wedding invitations through to your wedding gifts and bonbonierre ideas.

Rest assured that this understated combination will be a hit with any guest and more importantly these shades tend to suit most skin tones and so you shouldn’t have any trouble dressing your bridal party in matching outfits.

Here is our wedding stubby holder suggestion;

Beautiful Blue Willow

The willow pattern is a very well known, elaborate pattern used on ceramic kitchenware, namely dinner plates and bone china cups and saucers.

This theme can be used in several ways to give the desired effect – in winter teamed with some dark and blues this can add a feeling of warmth and on a summers day against a rustic woodland setting this might give a feeling of outdoor picnic, light and bright or can even be matched with a seaside theme for a truly unique wedding idea.

Here is our wedding stubby holder suggestion;

One Day Over the Rainbow

If you can’t settle on a single colour for your theme or even a couple of colours then why not go for a rainbow creation!? You could go for a hint of colour by keeping things plain like Black dresses for bridesmaids and then jazzing them up with funky rainbow accessories! Each girl could represent a different colour and the bride could have her favourite in her bouquet or a bright pair of shoes peeping out from under her wedding gown!

For your bombonierre ideas you could go for some branded products that are personalised with the bride and groom names in as many colours as you fancy, Coolaz stubby holders offer a range of designs for their personalized stubby holders where you can have a mixture of colours and even in dividual guest names to make a truly unique gift idea for all of your guests.

You can also add a splash of colour to your white wedding cakes and incorporate a multi coloured array of invitations, stickers, other stationery and continue each theme throughout all of your wedding decorations.

Weddings on a Budget – Ways To Save Money When Planning Your Big Day!

The Wedding of Your Dreams – on a Budget!!

Planning the wedding of your dreams doesn’t have to be stressful and certainly doesn’t have to break the bank! Use your smarts and delve into your creative side to help keep things simple and concentrate on the things that are important to you. Here are a few tips to help you keep a hold of your wedding plans…
Limit the number of guests at your wedding

Whatever theme, location or venue that you go for try to limit the number of guests you invite, a small wedding can be just as fun and often more memorable than a huge lavish affair – you will get to spend more quality time with your guests, it will be more intimate and relaxed for you and your guests. Plus small runs are no problem for us so if you only need a few coolers then we can help!

Choosing Your Wedding Dress – and keeping within your budget!

The Dress … This may be the most important thing to the bride and the one thing that she will want to spend a bit more money on – however it doesn’t have to break the bank!

Make sure that you spend some time looking though bridal magazines, borrow some if you can as they can be a little pricey, check out what dress types will suit your body shape and what styles will match the feel of your wedding. This will help you to narrow down your search and help to find those hidden bargains.

If you are handy with a sewing machine, why not find the perfect pattern for you and make your own? Maybe you have a friend that is into dress making too, you could collaborate to make the ultimate gown!?

Perhaps you have a family heirloom that your mother or grandmother wore on their wedding day? You could make a few alterations to give it a modern twist and have a dress that is one of a kind.

Check out second hand online shopping sites and the charity shops too… remember that a wedding dress that is for sale may be a second dress that a bride decided against that has never been worn, or a loved dress that was cared for and worn once! If you would prefer something new and off the shelf then check out the department stores – they often have a line of wedding dresses that are stylish and within budget. Another option is to rent your dress, this will save any worries about where to keep it after the big event!

Check out our recent feature about finding the perfect wedding dress and ways that you can match the style to your wedding stubby holders.

Savings on your Invitations!

With the changes in digital technology and the smart phone starting to slowly take over the world… you could definitely take advantage of that and save some cash. Why not take a look at one of the many design packages for your computer and have a stab at designing your own invites – you can then email it to those in the digital world and only have a few to print and send in the ‘snail’ mail. Plus once you have it designed you can send your artwork through to your suppliers to match your invite colours and patterns to your favors/bombonniere ideas. Consider

You could also consider creating a wedding share site, these are easy to manage websites where you can upload all of the information about your wedding plans and keep everyone updated with dates on your shared calendar. These are also a great place to upload your wedding or honeymoon photos after the event to share with all your family and friends!

If you want to send a physical invite you could go for something different, like creating it in the form of a magnet or stubby holder – something that will be kept and appreciated and not just thrown away after the invitation has been accepted.

Flowers for Your Wedding – Cheap & Cheerful…!

Have you ever thought of becoming a florist? There are some great short courses out there that will help to prepare you with the basic information about arranging flowers – that way you could organise your own and save yourself stacks of cash!

If you need to have a florist make up your flowers for you then maybe consider just one special bouquet for the bride, make sure that you set a budget and that you shop around for the best deal! Be careful when asking for quotes, unfortunately there are many businesses that will add premium prices because they are for a wedding!

Try to choose flowers that are in season, and inexpensive types such as carnations, daisies and chrysanthemums. You could also consider using fresh or dried fruit for your table decorations, they are also inexpensive and can look fantastic as part of a centrepiece design.

Affordable Wedding Photography – Ideas for keeping the cost down.

With digital cameras coming on leaps and bounds you could ask a family member or maybe a couple of friends to take some photographs for you? Obviously this can put a little pressure on the individuals and may take them away from the experience of the day, so it might be an idea to display the link to a digital share site where all of your guests can upload their own photos – that way you will get to see so many different angles! Or maybe a disposable camera for each table – they are always a blast when you come to developing the films!

Try contacting your local school, university or amateur photography group, they may be looking for an assignment as part of a photography course and would most likely jump at the opportunity of some extra experience and shots for their portfolio.

If you do employ a professional wedding photographer for the job make sure that you give them a clear list of the shots you would like, both the where and the who, that way it can be extremely organised and you can make the most of the time that you book them in for.

A Bargain Wedding Cake… Tastes so good!

The price you may pay for a wedding cake can vary depending on the complexity of your design, how much work is involved and how many tiers you choose! You could pay anything from $100 to thousands of dollars!

If you are looking to save some money on the cake then why not make your own! Take a look at some helpful videos you can find online, you can learn how to make the cake, ice and decorate it or even how to create a cupcake tower, if you can make it a DIY job then you will save so much money!

Maybe you have a family friend that is a fantastic cake maker; often the personal touch will make it taste so much better too! Alternatively, you could choose a plain iced off the shelf ‘birthday’ cake and add your own cake toppers to wedding it up and match your theme!

Hair & Makeup

“I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.”

If you are employing a professional stylist to make you look stunning on your wedding day then it is likely to cost you top dollar! Some hair & makeup artists will even stick around for a quick touch up between the ceremony and reception, but you may have to pay extra for this service. When it comes to weddings artists tend to use high quality products, something that will stay on all day and night, and the price will certainly be reflective of both that and the fact that more time is spent on the job as a whole.


If you are looking to save some cash why not do your own makeup and ask a friend to help you with your hair, it would be great fun to have a few girly nights to practice in the run up to the big day so that you can perfect your look. One of the girls could keep some touch up and hairspray in their clutch bag to be on hand if you need a little spritz throughout the day.

Don’t forget, beauty comes from within and you will be beaming with joy on your wedding day! All you will need to wear is your smile and you are sure to look happy and radiant!

Bombonierre, Gifts and Wedding Favor ideas on a Budget…!

When choosing your wedding favors and bombonierre make sure that you consider something that is going to give you real value for money and be sure to go for something that your guests will keep as a memento of your special day! There are so many items out there to choose from that will look great on your tables to match your decorations!

Choose something that you can add individual guest names to, that way you are adding a really personal touch and combining the gift as a place name-card so you will of course make a saving there! Check out some of our gift ideas including Coolaz Stubby Holders, Koozies, Coasters and Save the Date Magnets at www.coolaz.com.au

Choose a Destination Wedding – so your budget doesn’t fly away with you!

More and more couples each year are escaping the traditional big celebration wedding in favour of a smaller more intimate ceremony in an exotic location.

This can work out a little more expensive for your guests as they will have to go that extra mile to get there, but many resorts offer a full package deal so that you know exactly what you are getting and whether it will suit your budget?! You can also spoil your guests with a little gift on arrival or on the day of your wedding – Coolaz Stubby Holders are ideal as they are light weight and will pack flat in the bottom of your suitcase!

Don’t forget you can stay on at your destination for an extra week or so after your guests leave – that way it will become a combined wedding & honeymoon… and will be sure to save you some money!
