The more we participate in wedding fairs, the more we realise how important and beneficial it is both for us as a company as well as for the bride and groom, to be present at such fairs. Here everyone’s able to meet with the people who might end up providing a service at their wedding while seeing some products and what they can add to your special day live, helping you make a more informed decision by the end of it. Moreover, you are bound to get some lovely offers and discounts which have been set specifically for the occasion.
Moreover, wedding fairs constantly prove to be the ideal setting where all wedding service providers starting from photographers, videographers, wedding planners, and caterers just to mention a few, are given a platform through which they can show off their work. Brides and grooms have the luxury to compare different suppliers on the spot and test them out to see which ones will cater more for their specific needs.
Wedding fairs are extremely helpful for all those freshly engaged couples who seem to have no idea where they should start with their planning. However, this is not only limited to those couples who are just starting out their wedding planning. You can visit a wedding fair at any stage in the planning process. You never know, you might come across something that could have slipped your mind or completely not thought about.
Before going to the fair, especially if newly engaged, make sure to have a check-list of things you’d like to look into and book and maybe highlight which exhibitors you’d definitely like to visit.
With a whole lot of freebies, food tasting and fantastic discounts you will most definitely leave the wedding fair with a bargain. See you lovely couples at the Say Yes Wedding Fair.
So you're getting married some time this year and you still haven't decided which theme is the best one for you? Don't worry, we're here to help. Here are our top 5 wedding themes for 2017!
1. The Garden Theme
This wedding theme is most ideal for the couple who's not so into flowers. With a world that is constantly striving to go green, a garden wedding will most definitely be one to look out for. Starting from your wedding venue decorated in evergreen leaves to the use of wooden chairs and beige bridesmaids dresses.
2. The Vintage Theme
If you're a classic couple who loves themselves a 1950s wedding then this theme is the one for you. With the mint and pastel pink taking on the main role. Imagine your wedding cake draped in sugar roses and your venue full of cream cushioned chairs. The bridesmaids all wearing mint dresses and carrying baby blue flowered bouquets. Simply beautiful!
3. The Crystals Theme
There's nothing wrong with making your special day as shiny as can be. Starting from the wedding gown, a touch of crystals will instantly make any bride feel like a princess. Keeping the colour scheme to mostly silver and white, crystals could be the most elegant touch to your special day! Who wouldn't want to serve that delicious pink champagne in a crystal glass?
4. The Tropical Theme
If you love colours and bright pink flowers, then a tropical wedding is something you might become obsessed with, especially if you're getting married in Malta. Starting from the refreshing and fruity drinks served at the bar, to the laid back wedding attire and delicious fruit cake, this flowery wedding will sure go down well with all your guests, leaving them (and yourselves) room to relax and celebrate.
5. The Classic Fairytale Theme
Nah, we can never forget about this one. Growing up watching Disney movies, this theme has basically become the epitome of all weddings. Starting from the frilly and big ball gown dresses, to the classic white cake and the horse-led carriage, this Cinderella story will leave the couple dancing in the enchanted castle way past midnight.
6. The Bohemian-Chic Theme
This theme is an exciting mix of the hippie, nomad and gypsy styles. A wedding full of flower wreaths, casual and flowing dresses, mix and match decorations, outdoor locations and a whole lot of nature. Especially for those who have a limited budget, this theme gives you leeway for an easy DIY style wedding. The wedding will be one that is a statement of the couple's personalities. This style allows you to adapt according to location as well, and in fact you can opt for a beach or vintage bohemian wedding. The list of bohemian styles is endless!
7. The Modern and Industrial Vibe Theme
In a world that's always becoming more and more into modernity the combination of metallics and white colour palettes are one of the biggest go-to's this year. Such a theme will go down very well with many of the up and coming venues like Giardini Lambrosa and the Salini Bay Hotel. Brides and grooms alike are embracing metallics such as copper, rose gold and pewter especially because they are a highly versatile group of colours.

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year where a couple in love should consider to get married in. However, they should keep in mind the positive and the negative aspects in the decision of getting wed during these three months.
When booking a venue, couples should keep in mind that in autumn venues do not cost as much as during the spring and summer seasons as it is off peak season. There would be many offers and discounts presented to the couples where they can save up some money and they could spend them for the honeymoon. On another note, the weather would be cooler than during the summer where both the couple and their guests would enjoy the fresh breeze in the evening or afternoon.
And speaking of the weather, unfortunately weather can get unpredictable during this season and the couple would never know how it will play out. So they have to be careful on the types of venues and cars that are going to be booked just in case of rain and wind.

One thing people are really fond of is holding on to memories. Needless to say, your wedding day is most definitely one memory you'd want to cherish and keep forever. With the hundreds of options to choose from in Malta, the hunt for a wedding photographer begins.
While choosing a photographer because their work is aesthetically pleasing to you is important, this factor should not be the only one you consider, First you need to figure out logistics details like whether they're available on your wedding day, if they're familiar with the venue for your wedding and also if their package prices fit your budget.
If all of the above is in your favour, then the next and most ideal way forward is that of getting personal. One of the most uncomfortable situations you can get yourself in would be that of hiring a photographer you're not really compatible with just because someone suggested them to you. This is a clear recipe for stressing yourself out, and let's face it, planning a wedding is already stressful enough as it is. Firstly make sure that the person you're speaking to is the actual photographer that will be taking care of your wedding shoot. Also make sure to meet the back-up photographer in case an emergency happens and your chosen photographer has to miss your wedding.
Asking to see some of their work could be helpful for you to make up your mind both on the photographer as well as the style you'd like them to take for your wedding specifically. Don't hesitate to make suggestions of shots you'd like to be taken.
