How To Do A Mixed Gender Bridal Party Right

It is now really fashionable to do a co-ed or mixed-gender bridal party instead of the eons-old bridesmaids and groomsmen. It makes sense, right? You save both time and money and all your loved ones are together for one party! There are times one needs a girls’ night out but what if you’d prefer all your friends to be together for one big hurrah before the final day? This is the perfect opportunity.

Here’s How To Throw An Epic Mixed Gender Bridal Party

Neutral And Androgynous

In order to do a mixed-gender bridal party right, you need to use colors (for everything from décor to outfits) that are generally pleasing to both genders. Use pastel or neutral color scheme so everyone is free to express themselves within it. Using colors and décor effects like paper lanterns for example are all elements that are fairly androgynous and create a nice, warm feeling.

Not to mention this party is the perfect excuse for some wild experimentation as well if that’s your thing. Recommend to your bridesmaids that they all wear jumpsuits or pantsuits to the party or you could keep the color scheme totally fluid so people can freely choose the colors that best influence their mental health in a positive way and having a theme or a cosplay style party is also in the cards. Who said everything had to be a formal tea party?

Mix Matching And Coordinating Outfits

While on one hand, you have the option of going rogue in terms of dress sense and outfit choices, you can also do mix-matching between the groomsmen and the bridesmaids. If your bridesmaids have a bit of blue or pink in their dress, you could play up the groomsmen’s outfit by throwing in a tie or a pocket square in the same color.

Inclusion Is In, Exclusivity Is Out

Ditch the old ideas and the old terms surrounding a wedding like a bridal suite for example. A wedding and the prerequisite bridal party is the celebration of two souls that love each other. But they are also special days for all their friends and loved ones and you want to make everyone feel like they belong and that they are vital to the event. Forget about gender-defined roles and mix everyone’s duties up so the event is more inclusive, fun, warm, and filled with wonderful memories of affection and not just formal execution of everyone’s role.

Do A Mixed Gender Bridal Party Right

Man With Man, Girl With Girl

You don’t need to go with traditional opposite-sex pairings for photographs and such, you can totally do same-sex photo placements for more natural, candid, and friendly photographs. And if you want to create some really incredible photos add some sparklers. Not only will you get Insta-Worthy photos, but wedding sparklers will also create unforgettable memories.

Gender Neutral Fun Activities

Whether you’re choosing to do a live BBQ or play darts or even open presents, there are ways to engineer these activities to make them gender-neutral and a lot of fun. You can also communicate with the guests of your bridal party to find out what they love doing as a hobby and maybe surprise them with it at the actual party.

There is no doubt that modern-day weddings are changing. Age-old traditions are no longer an absolute must. And we think it’s pretty cool. We celebrate the fact that today’s couples want to make their wedding as unique as their love story. So, if you don’t want a garter or bouquet toss, skip them! And if you want your best guy friend as your “Man of Honor” or your best gal friend as your “Best Lady” do it! It’s your wedding day so make it what you want.

The Ultimate Guide To Smoke Bombs In Weddings

Smoke bombs are the real deal; they are what you use to signal the party of the year or the wedding of the decade and throw subtle touches out the window. However, there is an art and a bit of science to using smoke bombs safely and for the best effect so here’s everything you need to know before incorporating smoke bombs in weddings.

When In Rome

Smoke bombs are all about the location you are using them in. And Smoke bombs are best utilized in an outdoor setting in daylight. But be careful because smoke bombs can stain clothes, furniture, and walls although they don’t really make any noise. Using them outdoors (or for the wedding exit) means you can get more impressive photographs because the pictures will capture more of the colors and gradients than they would in a closed room even with great lighting.

If you are using them outside during the night time definitely rethink the backlighting; whatever you think is enough probably isn’t especially if you want quality photographs showcasing all the colors. Other locational considerations to bear in mind include the fact that you don’t want the guests undergoing too much smoke inhalation in a medium-sized space and some venues may not allow the use of smoke bombs at all (probably due to size or inadequate ventilation, not to mention it will stain their pretty white tablecloths).

Beware A Storm

Checking the weather forecast for the day you plan to use smoke bombs is definitely for the wise. Smoke bombs blowing in the opposite direction are no fun. If your guests are wary of their clothes getting stained, set off the smoke bombs 3 feet away from everyone. This will help to ensure that there is less contact between the smoke and guests.

Many couples prefer the smoke bombs to match the wedding theme or the general décor of the festivities. This is especially important in more ethnic weddings) so the fumes need to be close. In that case, your photographer might suggest waiting till the end for a special photoshoot so it doesn’t matter if the clothes get stained. You can do a rehearsal smoke bomb try-out a few days before the wedding to be sure!

All Smoke Bombs Are Not Built Alike

There are many different types of smoke bombs available on the web. And many couples use biodegradable, non-toxic fume-based smoke bombs that are not harmful to the environment. This is a great idea if your wedding party has a lot of children!

There are firework fountain smoke bombs, homemade versions that need more time to dry out before being lit up. There are also ones that emit colored fire along with smoke, and many others. Choose ones that will have the effect you want . Each smoke bomb stays lit for 90 seconds. So decide how many you need and how to navigate using them safely depending on the number of guests.
