Wedding Venue & Wedding Dress

6 Things to Remember

Though wedding-dress shopping and fittings have built-in joy due to the circumstances, there are a few things that can make those moments go horribly awry.

  • The time of day you go try on the dress matters!
    Dedicate a full day to the search. It’s important that you try on your gown in good, bright, light, and also in lighting that is similar to the lighting for your wedding. If you’re getting married outside during the day, make sure to check out the dress near a window. If you’re getting married in a church with candlelight, try on the dress in dim lighting.
  • The friends and family you invite to help pick out your wedding gown can make or break the experience.
    Only invite people whose opinion you actually care about and value.
  • Don’t forget your undergarments.
    You should wear the undergarments that will be similar to those you’ll sport on your wedding day.
  • Bridal gowns are sized differently from normal clothing.
    This is an important fact to remember, as well as the fact that each designer’s sizing differs drastically from one another.
  • Comfort is important.
    Maybe you’ll be having a wild reception and are planning on dropping it like it’s hot? Practice those signature dance moves to make sure they are possible.
  • Crying is optional.
    Choosing a wedding dress is a totally different experience, some view it as a very emotional process, while others see it as an expression of their personal style. Not all brides cry when they find “the one.”

Creating Your Perfect #HASHTAG

Creating a hashtag for your wedding is a wonderful way to help you compile all of the images shared on social media throughout the celebration. This will help everyone enjoy your big day while at the wedding venue and also be able to look back at all the memorable moments! There have been several hashtags created, some more brilliant than others. So how do you make sure that yours stands out? Below are some awesome tips!
• Start with your names. Maybe a bit obvious, but let’s start with the basics
• Get punny
• Add a “wedding word”
• Avoid easy misspellings
• Capitalize the first letter of each word
• Make it easy to remember
• Check the hashtag
• Be open for some trial and error
• Spread the word
• Don’t over think it!

In case you are still having a hard time coming up with ideas, there are several hashtag generator websites to help! Best wishes and happy hashtaging!!

Highlight Your Maid Of Honor In An Accent Dress!

Your maid of honor is your BFFL! She’s the first to RSVP to all your crazy ideas, she’s totally down to run your first marathon with you and she’s planning on throwing you a bangin’ bachelorette party! So obviously, you want your favorite lady to stand out on the big day. There are a few different ways to allow her to be recognized just by adding or embellishing some extra color!

  • A Darker Shade: Keep it monochromatic, but still interesting, by having your MOH wear a darker shade of the same hue the bridesmaids are wearing. Even better: Have the best man wear a tie matching the maid of honor’s darker dress.
  • An Element of Surprise: Bridesmaids wearing white is all the rage right now, and what can we say? It’s unexpected, and we love it! But up the ante by giving your maid of honor a color that will pop against the white, like hot pink, for an extra dose of surprise.
  • Contrasting Hues: Highlight your maid of honor’s importance in the wedding by giving her a contrasting color to wear! This is also a fun way to play up a particular accent color in your wedding’s color palette!

Bride Lauren (Tyus) Carroll who got married at our lovely wedding venue this past October did a beautiful job of contrasting hues! Her MOH wore a bright yellow, which went along with her accent color, while the bridesmaids wore a bright blue. It created a lovely pop of color during the ceremony!

Valentine’s Day

Get ready to see a lot of RED this weekend as Valentine’s Day is Sunday, February 14th! From candy shaped hearts to stuffed teddy bears filling the stores, Valentine’s Day is a day set aside for couples to enjoy each other’s company and have a reason to celebrate being together! Valentine’s Day is also a day in which people decide to make an enduring commitment to each other. In the U.S. it is estimated that 6 million couples are likely to get engaged on February 14th! So, if you end up being one of those 6 million people CONGRATS!! Being engaged and planning a wedding can be very exciting, and a great time of happiness!

Wedding Soundtrack

Music is a big part of most weddings; it helps make your perfect wedding venue come to life! Wedding songs are like a soundtrack. Individually, each may be beautiful, interesting or funny, and together they tell a story. Whether you want classic love songs, traditional instrumentals or a modern rock ballad, the songs you choose for your wedding and the order in which it is played will be as unique as your relationship. As a playlist, your wedding songs will set the mood on your big day and be the music that stirs up happy memories for the rest of your life. As Valentine’s Day is approaching, listening to Romantic Love Songs can help create special moments that you’ll treasure. Then when the big day arrives you can look back and remember that one song that started it all!

Sensing your breathtaking wedding venue!

Sight is the most obvious sense, and on your wedding day looks are very important! Picking the perfect wedding venue is a must! It goes beyond just picking beautiful ideas to planning something that comes together as a whole. Choosing a venue that is naturally beautiful ensures a striking background to your big day and cuts down on overall decor!

Chances are pretty good that you have never planned a wedding before and you do not quite know what to do. Weddings are a fun, exciting world, but they are also challenging and a huge unknown. It is okay to seek knowledge and help when entering upon this unknown world. Che’ne Rouge has been an exceptional wedding venue since 2008 and would love to help create YOUR dream wedding!

Here at Che’ne Rouge, colors, textures, and stylistic details all come together to set the tone for a truly fabulous bash! We have customized our wedding packages so we do all the hard work and you don’t have to! We want your day to be all about YOU!

Come see us at the beautiful Che’ne Rouge in West Atlanta and leave your guests speechless with the beautiful sites of your perfect wedding venue!
