WHITE WEDDING DECOR IDEAS

Don’t you just love white weddings? They are so classy and eternally romantic! Here are some creative ideas for such a fairytale wedding

The first thing that comes to our mind is flowers. Go for all white flower decorations with lilies, orchids, hydrangeas, roses and gardenias. You can set the tables with gorgeous candelabras topped with tons of blooms and white pillar candles. Or you can also create a canopy like floral structure with numerous votive candles producing charming illumination. Make sure that seating arrangement is plush, comfortable and in white or any metallic finish.

white-wedding-ideas-17-1222713

Beautiful centerpieces are obviously a must. Combine the pristine white flowers with silver, white ceramic or crystal vases and cozy white candles for a magical feast! If you want a hint of color then try adding ripe lemons to the flower arrangement! http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-flowers

For a more dazzling effect, you can use silver disco balls and white string lights with flowers.

weddingideasmag

To make the look of an all white wedding more exciting, you can add touches of gleaming metallic color to the décor. Like these goblets and place cards are gold accented and white linen napkins are gold embroidered. Platinum or silver accents will add that sparkle too.

Invitation and menu cards can be in classic black and white combination. Or they can be engraved in gold and silver for that opulent touch.

For an outdoor wedding or an elegant cocktail party, a clear topped see through tent will look dramatic! You can suspend white and platinum glowing globes to get that enchanting, shimmering lighting.

If you are going for all white drapes, they have to be spotless and very good quality. It’s crucial to choose linen which looks bright, has different layers or textures to create an interesting look. Subtle white on white patterns can look great too!

Want to go over the top and steal the show? An elaborate ice bar will be an unique showstopper with the couple’s monogram on it!

The bride’s bouquet can have any white flower she loves. It can also have a hint of pink, plum or occasional strands of fern.

When it comes to the food, it will be almost impossible and not really appealing to have an all white course! So ideally you can make a few items “white themed”. An eggnog cocktail or even a pink cocktail with dainty white decorative stirrer will be great!

Delicacies in white sauce or cookies and pastries with white icing and edible silver pearls can be another choice.

The bridal gown will obviously be a glorious shade of white. But it would also be a great idea to get white dresses for the bridesmaids!

Did you know that your love for art can liven up your bathrooms too? You don’t have to display only traditional paintings or photos.

Frame Anything and Everything

Empty frames even old ones can be so useful for an interesting piece of wall art! Just affix enlarged photos on them or simply stick decorative papers over them. Another cool idea is to get the glass etched with short words of your choice.

More than Just Photo Frames

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PRECIOUS JEWELRY

indian roots

Whether you bought that gorgeous pair of earrings yourself, or were gifted that sparkling bracelet by a loved one or were passed on the famous necklace your family has owned over years…jewelry has always been close to a woman’s heart! So it’s good to care for them so that they can be cherished for generations…here’s how:

Tips for wearing jewelry:

why of fashion

1) Never wear jewelry while performing tasks like house cleaning, cooking, gardening to avoid damage from chemicals, sweat etc.

2) Apply makeup before wearing jewelry to ensure minimum exposure to chemicals in perfume, sprays, lotions and cosmetics

3) Never wear jewelry in swimming pools or spas, to avoid reaction with chlorine water which can cause discoloration or permanent damage.

4) Never wear jewelry during any form of contact sports to prevent physical damage.

Tips for cleaning jewelry:

maipearls

1) Remove any ornament before bathing because soap can make it appear dull over time.

2) Professional jewelry polishing cloths or svelte is best for cleaning jewelry. Tissues or paper towels might cause scratches.

3) Regular cleaning is ideal. Remember that alcohol solution can do wonders but bleach is a disaster! Use warm water while cleaning.

4) If jewelry is damaged or broken, don’t clean it before repair…the problem might worsen.

5) Since prevention is always better than cure, regularly check your ornaments for loose stones or any kind of damage.

Tips for jewelry repair: 

Custom-Jewelry-Repair-Buffalo-NY

1) Try to prevent any damage as much as possible to keep costly repairs away. Regular inspection helps!

2) Before trusting a jeweler with the repair, check for reviews and referrals of their work.

3) Be careful when the jeweler quotes a price for the repair. They should ideally have a standard price for a particular repair.

4) Learn exactly how the repair is going to be done.The procedure should be explained to you clearly so that you know, it will be done correctly.

5) While picking up a repaired piece, ensure that it has been done as requested and there are no flaws. Also the item should be perfectly cleaned and polished.

Storing and organizing jewelry:

1) The best way to keep your jewelry safe is to organize them neatly in a jewelry box. At Uberlyfe we have a host of boxes to suit myriad needs…compact, travel friendly ones, large spacious ones for use at home and even locker sized ones for the bank!! Available in different styles, colors and designs, they are simply awesome for all your “precious” requirements. All boxes are made from premium MDF with leatherette outside and velvet inside.

Check them out here: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-jewelrybox 

2)  To prevent tarnishing of ornaments, keep anti-tarnish strips in the organizers to absorb oxidants!

3) Maintaining a detailed description, value and photograph of each jewelry piece is very useful in any unfortunate lost or stolen situation.

4) Always use an organizer while travelling with jewelry to prevent any damage or misplacement.
