Do’s and Don’ts of Wedding Dress Shopping

Do’s and Don’ts of Wedding Dress Shopping

The moment you have been waiting for has arrived; your significant other has proposed! Now it is time to get into wedding planning mode and begin making arrangements. After you have tackled the venue, the perfect floral centerpieces, and the guest list, it is time for wedding dress shopping! But before you head over to your favorite bridal boutique or bridal shop, here are some helpful dos and don’ts of wedding dress shopping according to the event planners at our South Florida wedding venue

How to Shop for a Wedding Dress 

Finding the right wedding dress takes time; trying on wedding dresses is only half the fun. We have hosted our fair share of weddings here at Deer Creek Golf Club and have seen some wedding dress disasters unfold. To ensure you have the bridal gown of your dreams, here are a few wedding dress shopping tips. 

DO Bring People You Trust to Watch You Try on Wedding Dresses

When you’re wedding dress shopping, be sure you have a supportive entourage that you trust. As a bride, you will not only want honest opinions about the different wedding dress styles you try on but people who will support you no matter what dress you choose, even if it wasn’t their first choice. Surround yourself with people that will bring you back to Earth in honest and supportive ways. 

DON’T Try on Wedding Dresses in the Middle of the Afternoon  

If you know you will be shopping for a wedding dress with a big crowd, book the bridal salon’s first appointment of the day. This gives you the opportunity to complete your wedding dress shopping before the salon gets too busy. You will not feel overwhelmed and will most likely be able to try on more wedding gowns. 

DO Have an Idea of What a Dream Wedding Dress Looks Like

Save time running through countless dresses by going into the bridal shop with an idea of what you may be looking for. Are you searching for a lace wedding dress? Something blush or ivory? This will give your wedding dress consultant a general idea of which wedding dresses to pull and which ones to skip. You can peruse bridal magazines and try some of the latest wedding dress trends to start helping you visualize your dream gown. 

Not sure what wedding dress to wear on your big day? We recommend trying on at least one ball gown, one fit-and-flare gown, and an A-line wedding dress to start. This can give you a better idea of what style of wedding dress you feel great in to help you narrow down your selection. 

DON’T Judge a Wedding Dress On a Hanger

When wedding dress shopping, don’t judge any wedding dress on its hanger. Oftentimes brides will overlook a beautiful gown because of the way it looks simply hanging.  While it may not feel right at first glance, trust your bridal consultant and give it a shot; the bridal consultant will know that a gown looks much better on a body compared to how it looks on the hanger. Who knows, this may just be the wedding dress of your dreams!

DO Add Accessories When Trying On a Wedding Dress 

Accessories can change an entire look, so when you’re shopping for a wedding dress, bring accessories you will want to include in your wedding such as an heirloom that’s been passed down from generation to generation, like a veil or tiara. We also recommend bringing a wide range of different jewelry to get an idea of how it all looks together with the dress. You won’t regret it! 

DON’T Be Afraid to Say No to a Wedding Dress

Keep in mind that you are shopping for YOUR dream wedding dress. Although your consultant at the bridal shop is the expert and your loved ones want you to look great on your wedding day, you are allowed to decline a dress. Don’t feel pressured to choose a dress your family and friends love if you don’t feel the same way about it. If you cannot picture yourself walking down the aisle in the wedding dress you’re trying on, then it may not be the gown for you. You will make your consultant’s job easier by being honest about what you want.

Finding the perfect dress and a fantastic venue are two of the biggest tasks in wedding planning!

Quarantine Proposal Ideas

Quarantine Proposal Ideas

Ring, check, proposal plans, check, oh wait…global pandemic…check. Don’t let COVID-19 put a damper on your marriage proposal plans. Before the coronavirus lockdown restrictions took place, you probably had a grand plan for proposing to your partner. But just because you are stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can still propose during the quarantine. Our expert South Florida wedding planners at Deer Creek Golf Club, are here to share a few quarantine proposal ideas.   

How to Propose at Home

You don’t need to plan a huge destination vacation or an elaborate plan for a marriage proposal. In fact, proposing at home is more intimate and personal than any other setting. If your quarantine proposal comes from the heart, that is all that truly matters. You can still be romantic at home! If you are proposing during quarantine, check out these ideas.

  1. Picnic

One of the sweetest quarantine proposal ideas is a picnic. You can find a quiet park near your home or go to your front or backyard for a sweet picnic with your loved one. Pack your favorite food, a cozy blanket, flower petals, and of course, champagne to celebrate you popping the question.

  1. Game night

If you are looking for a sneaky but cute idea if you are proposing during quarantine, then definitely host a game night. Keep the invite list very small and make sure you are socially distancing. You can write “will you marry me?” on a card if you are playing a card game, or you can add hints of wedding themes in any board game you choose. Your significant other is sure to say yes as your loved ones surround you.

  1. Movie night

Another creative marriage proposal involves a movie night starring you and your partner. You can compile videos and photos of the two of you that can play right before you pop the question. Cuddle up with your loved one, add cozy blankets and pillows, and you can even add candles to make the room feel more romantic. No movie date will ever compare to this evening!

  1. Room makeover

While traveling is limited now due to the coronavirus, you can give your partner a room makeover. Choose a place your partner dreams of visiting, whether it’s Paris or the Bahamas, or anywhere in the world, and recreate the scenery in your home. From décor to food, make the area look as if your travel plans are still on, get down on one knee, and propose to your partner.

  1. Over a meal

A simple yet romantic way to propose at home is over a meal. You can either cook or order in your partner’s favorite cuisine/restaurant and reminisce over the sweet smell of the food. Whip up an Italian dish with a bottle of wine, make your own burritos with margaritas, or barbecue chimichurri chicken with a classic potato dish with a signature cocktail. Wine and dine with your partner as you cherish your memories before you enter the next chapter of your lives.

Now that you are more familiar with a few quarantine proposal ideas, you are on your way to popping the question. Keep in mind our wedding venue in South Florida to celebrate your love. We also host bridal showers and other special events. Let our family assist with your upcoming nuptials. Contact us today at 954-429-0006 to speak to one of our special event directors. Congratulations on your proposal. From the Deer Creek Golf Club to your family, we wish you a life full of love.

Honeymoon Destinations Post-COVID-19

Honeymoon Destinations Post-COVID-19

It’s no surprise COVID-19 completely changed special events and human interaction. While the travel industry changes routes, increases sanitation, and enforces restrictions, it’s important to educate yourself on the reason as to why these things are happening. Don’t worry! Your honeymoon is not canceled. However, it might be a little bit postponed. Our expert South Florida wedding planners at Deer Creek Golf Club are here to share a few honeymoon destinations post-COVID-19.

Where to Go for Your Honeymoon

While international travel might have limitations right now, our team is sure once the travel bans are lifted, it will be safe enough to travel again. From Hawaii, Cape Town, Barcelona, and more, here are a few honeymoon destinations for your romantic getaway.

  1. Cape Town, South Africa

As soon as the travel restrictions are gone, Cape Town, South Africa should be on your list of romantic getaways. Cape Town provides stunning views with activities for all outdoor enthusiasts. Hike, surf, swim with sharks, rock climb, and so much more! We recommend adding Table Mountain National Park, Boulders Beach, and The Cape Winelands to your itinerary. Explore Cape Town’s history, indulge in their incredible food scene, relax by the beach, and experience one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

  1. Turks and Caicos Islands

Coronavirus has nothing on your Turks and Caicos honeymoon. The border is currently open to U.S. citizens and residents and guests can visit the Turks and Caicos. Experience the renowned Turks and Caicos Islands, which are known for their mesmerizing views that provide peace and serenity. Enjoy the sparkling turquoise water and white sand beaches as you relax at your honeymoon resort. Add horseback riding, snorkeling, and kayaking to your itinerary and immerse yourself in the clear blue water.

  1. Lake Tahoe, California

If you are unsure where to go for your honeymoon, check out Lake Tahoe, California. One of the most beautiful places in North America is Lake Tahoe, which is a freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains that connects California and Nevada. The blue hue in the water that shines in the summer is absolutely stunning, and the plethora of winter activities when it snows is the reason why this is a great place to visit for year-round fun. Hit the slopes in November through February or go for a dip in the lake during ideal summer weather May through September.

One of the most romantic and picturesque places in the world is Santorini, Greece. This honeymoon destination is known for its breathtaking views. Santorini is full of exciting things for you and your partner to do on your romantic getaway. We promise the Santorini coastline is going to be one of the most incredible views you will ever see.

Bali is an excellent place for adventure seekers as well as those who enjoy relaxing. This island provides you with the best of both worlds when it comes to your romantic getaway. Enjoy the mountain vistas, exquisite temples, vivid art district, and so much more! Go for a romantic stroll through flower fields, take an authentic cooking class with your partner, set sail on a dinner cruise, hike along the Campuhan Ridge, and so much more on your relaxing yet adventurous honeymoon in Bali.

  1. Amalfi, Italy

Dive deeper into the Italian culture in the dramatic natural setting of Amalfi, Italy. The rich history that surrounds the city while also providing the community with a view you will never forget. You must explore the Amalfi Coast, which stretches for 30 miles of coastline. Delve into the pastel-colored fishing villages, small beaches, amazing restaurants, and more. Not only do you get to witness the beauty of the pristine beaches, but you also can explore the coastal mountains.

  1. Barcelona, Spain

One of the most popular honeymoon destinations post-COVID-19 is Barcelona, Spain. Barcelona is an excellent romantic getaway for food lovers, romantics, and even adrenaline seekers due to its limitless options for activities. Invest some major time in exploring ancient architecture like their gothic, Spanish churches. Get ready to eat one of the best cuisines you will ever have! We promise you won’t go hungry or thirsty in Barcelona. Consider joining a guided tour to explore the city even further from an expert.

  1. Fiji

Pack your bags post-COVID-19 and enjoy the relaxation Fiji has to offer. Fiji is a beautiful island country in Melanesia that provides its guest with the picture-perfect vacation. The best part about Fiji is how convenient it is to get there! With a nonstop flight from Los Angeles, you’ll be on the island ready to kick off your romantic getaway in about 11 hours. Choose to stay in an overwater bungalow or private resort for a stay you won’t forget. Soak up the sun, check out the spa, and take in the fresh Fiji air.

  1. Switzerland

If you prefer a mountain setting, Switzerland is the country for your romantic getaway. Not only does Switzerland provide stunning mountain views, but the valleys, waterfalls, and resorts tucked away in the middle of nature are only a few reasons as to why so many people choose this honeymoon destination. The Alps are covered in snow year-round, but if you are looking for a warmer climate, choose to visit mid-June. For those who aren’t afraid of the colder climate, plan your honeymoon any time between December and March. If you are unsure where to honeymoon, Zurich is a vibrant city, Montreux is a resort town on the shores of Lake Geneva, Zermatt provides picturesque mountain excursions, and St. Moritz is a charming town with panoramic views of water and land. Whichever city you choose to visit, you are sure to have a memorable and wonderful honeymoon.

Sydney, Australia is a great honeymoon destination for couples to soak in the beautiful landscape, wildlife, warm hospitality, and more. Enjoy sights like the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Royal Botanical Garden with miles of coastline, beaches, and of course parks. Explore the white sand Bondi beach, which is one of the most famous beaches in the world or take a drive inland for a hike up the Blue Mountains.

Best Bridal Shower Gifts for the Bride-to-Be

Best Bridal Shower Gifts for the Bride-to-Be

Finding the perfect bridal shower gift can be a challenge, especially if the bride is a really close friend and you want the gift to be memorable and special. Bridal shower gift ideas can either be traditional or out of the box depending on the bride’s wish list and taste. When in doubt, there is nothing wrong with a gift that’s a little bit of both worlds. If you are getting ready to attend a bridal shower but are having a hard time coming up with the perfect gift, these are some of the best and most unique bridal shower gift ideas to make your search easier!

Classic Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

If you are looking for a more traditional gift, here are some classic bridal shower gift ideas you can choose from for the bride-to-be.

Dessert Stand
When a couple decides to get married, they are likely already living together or are setting their sights on becoming homeowners. The purchasing of a home is usually followed by a housewarming party, and a housewarming party usually has cake! No dessert table is complete without a dessert stand, whether there is a beautiful chocolate cake or a variety of cupcakes, a dessert stand will always come in handy and makes one of the best bridal shower gifts.

Simple and easy, placemats make the perfect statement piece in the dining room and kitchen. Gift the bride-to-be a set of placemats that accentuate the dining area in their home with a splash of color or choose a set that complements a theme or vibe they have going.

Picture Frame
One of the best bridal shower gift ideas is a beautiful picture frame. A frame can be used in many different ways around a home as accent pieces or the focal point of the room. Picture frames can hold memories of you and the bride or her own memories that she will make in her marriage.

Champagne Glasses
The most timeless bridal shower gift idea is a pair of champagne glasses. The champagne glasses can be used on the day of the wedding for a toast and even on the couple’s anniversary. As a special touch, have the champagne glasses etched with the bride and groom’s names or their wedding date.

Unique Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

If the classic bridal shower gift is not what you are looking for, here are some unique bridal shower gift ideas for you to consider as you’re shopping for the bride-to-be!

Cookbook for Newlyweds
Help the new couple make their first dinner together with a newlywed cookbook from your favorite chef or homemaker. This unique bridal shower gift idea is one that keeps on giving! Over time, the couple can find their favorite recipes and make their signature dishes on special occasions, like their anniversary or the holidays.

Personalized Sun Hat
If your bride enjoys some fun in the sun, there is no way that you can go wrong with a personalized beach hat. Have a cute saying sewn into the brim or the bride’s new last name if she is changing it.

Personalized Doormat
Whether the newlyweds have a home or are planning to move in together, a personalized doormat is the perfect unique bridal shower gift idea. Customize a simple doormat with the couple’s last name and the year of their marriage to welcome them home as newlyweds.

Foodie Dice Tumbler
Newlyweds need a date night now and again but deciding where to eat can be the hardest thing. A foodie dice tumbler can help make the decision easier! With 186,000 possibilities, date night will always be interesting.

If you are planning a bridal shower and you’re still searching for an event space, the Deer Creek wedding venue offers a beautiful setting to celebrate the bride-to-be! Our staff is available to assist with your event and we cannot wait to see what bridal shower gift ideas you come up with!

Micro Weddings Are Becoming More Popular in the Era of COVID-19

Micro Weddings Are Becoming More Popular in the Era of COVID-19

Planning your wedding probably looked a lot different than it does now after the coronavirus decided to uproot the entire world. There is an overwhelming amount of uncertainty as travel bans, social distancing guidelines, and the number of COVID-19 cases rises. While you might’ve preferred to have a large gathering to celebrate your marriage, however, micro weddings are becoming more popular amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The special event experts of our South Florida country club are here to share a few things about having a smaller wedding during this unpredictable time.

What Is a Micro Wedding?

A micro wedding is a celebration that honors your marriage with 50 guests or less. The traditional wedding is typically on the larger size, often with over 100 guests. However, with a smaller wedding, it’s a more intimate setting.

When you choose to have your wedding with less than 50 guests, you are more prone to less stress due to fewer accommodations you need to make. Micro weddings can often save you money due to a smaller guest list. However, some couples prefer to spend their entire budget on a macro experience but with a micro guest list at their smaller wedding. You might be able to get the wedding of your dreams while even saving some money too.

The Rise of Micro Weddings

Couples are choosing micro weddings instead of their original plans due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Micro weddings during this time involve a smaller guest list and a more intimate ceremony. Coronavirus certainly left many jobless and has put a significant strain on the economy. Micro weddings are known for keeping costs down, which is a good thing during this unforeseen chaos.

A smaller guest list allows more quality time you can spend with your loved ones. Larger weddings make it more challenging to spend time with all of your guests. When you choose to have a micro wedding, you don’t have to cut your interactions short; instead, you can spend plenty of time with all of your guests.

One of the biggest reasons there is a rise in micro weddings is due to safety. There is a strong possibility there will be continued travel bans as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on your celebrations. When you choose to have a smaller wedding, you don’t have to worry so much about the travel bans when you keep it simpler. Even if your wedding isn’t until the end of the year or even next year, having a smaller wedding planned can help eliminate the risk of potential downsizing; not to mention your guests would probably feel better in a more intimate setting.

You can also include those who didn’t make the guest list by utilizing technology. You can set up a live stream of your wedding ceremony for those who are sick or at-risk loved ones so they can still witness your special day. You can also send your guests a party favor to make them feel like they were in attendance at your wedding.

While the era of micro weddings is upon us, it’s important to educate yourself on its advantages during the COVID-19 outbreak. You might have dreamed of a large wedding, but keep in mind the benefits of micro weddings. Our South Florida wedding venue is a perfect option for your intimate micro wedding. Please contact us today to learn more about our smaller wedding options.
