The Church of the Kettles

I thought I would share with you a few locations I absolutely love. Even though it is only accessible by boat..it’s an adventure for your guest and they will love every minute of it. Just imagine your beautiful photographs taken on this small but quint island.

The Church of the Kettles, Muskoka
Church of the Kettles is a familiar site to many cottagers. It was built in 1900 on land donated by Rev. C.O. Johnston. Accessible only by water, this summer-only church is located on Lake Muskoka, directly across from Mortimer’s Point. The architecture is quintessentially Muskoka. Made totally from wood, it blends into its setting in a very symbiotic fashion. Legend has it that the rocks nearby were the hiding place for Huron sacramental vessels hidden at the time of the Iroquois invasion.

Now more then ever couples are going to new lengths to infuse their personalities into their big day.Which is making the 2008 bride to be more creative then ever.From Daring Destinations to Going Hi-Tech….this years couples are anything but boring.

Going Hi-Tech
With facebook and all the many networking sites brides and grooms are turning to the hi-tech world. Let’s face it it’s alot easyier then calling all your 8 bridesmaids to get their opinion on the style of dresses they prefer, menu options, dress fitting schedule etc. It’s even a great way for your family and friends to learn more about your relationship. Have fun with it post pictures, blogs about your wedding planning etc. There are just so many web-sites that offer free wedding web space.

Daring Destinations
Destination weddings are still a trend for 2008, but warm destination spots are not the growing trend anymore. Couples are now going to places you would never think of. From African safari’s, mountain slopes, to beautiful ice hotels. It just seems like anything is possible these days. I believe destination weddings are here to stay…who wouldn’t want to travel to a beautiful location for the biggest day of your lives.

Having a “Green Wedding”
Weddings are becoming more eco-friendly and green weddings are a huge trend for 2008.Couples are trying to be more environmentally conscious about everyting from recylable invitations down to menu and wedding favors.

Yellow
Yellow is 2008’s hottest color for spring and summer bridesmaids. They are fresh and make any summer wedding one to remember. Just remember these are not your dated pastel yellow, instead a more vibrant brighter yellow. If you are worried that it won’t go with an indoor theme no worries, just pair it up with another more richer colour. Such as chocolate brown…which gives you more of an exotic feel.
Mini Moons
Many couples are taking mini moons after their wedding and going on their honeymoon at a later time. Due to saving extra money, or if they are getting married in the summer and want to wait until it gets colder to fly down south.I think it’s a great idea!!) Just a couple of days away somewhere local.Where you can relax and enjoy your new married status. There are many local getaway spots to choose from. Such as a local resort in the Muskoka’s, weekend in Montreal, visit a local spa for the weekend or even a quiet Bed & Breakfast.

Making it FUN: Children at the Wedding

Are you planning on having children at your wedding? Why not make it fun for them.Children have very short attention spans…so you really have to plan ahead for their entertainment and comfort. There are so many ideas to keep those little ones happy. At the reception, create an area where the kids can play, have a mini snack bar for them to snack on, mini child-size seating with fun activities for them to do. Such as activity books, crayons, books and games. You even can get them all in your wedding theme.
If you are still not too sure if you can keep them happy.You can hire a wedding childcare professional to attend and do activities with the children, while the parents have a great time to celebrate your wedding.
Ohh and don’t forget to give special favors for your little guests to take home!

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something…green?

Todays bride’s going GREEN? Yes it is true…from the trend of destination weddings to totally green weddings.It’s the newest trend and it’s getting everyone’s attention.This doesn’t mean you have to walk down the aisle in a lime green wedding dress, but for that enviromently conscious couple this might be the route to go.From wedding dresses made of hemp, hybrid limos, organic food, natural materials and recyclable invitations. I can see why it’s getting the attention of so many brides. Going “GREEN” is one of the biggest business opportunities right now so why shouldn’t the wedding industry jump in as well. I’m all in for protecting the enviroment for ourselves and our children and I truly hope this trend sticks.I know I would love to plan a green wedding or at least incorporate a few elements.
