Two Wed - Your Wedding Source for a Multilingual Wedding

We are part of a digital world and the process of planning a wedding has changed because of it. The possibilities are endless when it comes to visualizing what you want your wedding to be like from using google searches, viewing wedding blogs, and even creating your own pinboard of ideas on Pinterest. The same is true for getting you wedding information out to guests; many brides and grooms-to-be are opting for digital and web-based options to show their creativity and style with personalized wedding websites, wedding invitations, and wedding organization tools to stay on top of their wedding plans.

There are a number of websites that can offer you the ability to create your own wedding website or you may even have the skills to purchase and create your own from scratch. There are also places you can go to create online invitations. When I was getting married I created a wedding website and included the web-link on my Save the Date Postcards for guests to navigate prior to the invitations being sent out. My method of tracking guest responses was use of an Excel spreadsheet and compiling responses via email, phone, and mail replies. After coming across Two Wed and seeing how simple their process is I would be more inclined today to use their website, organization tools, and templates.

Two Wed is a Canadian brand that blends the latest web innovations with contemporary wedding planning. On Two Wed, brides and grooms-to-be planning a wedding can use their services to make email invitations, create their own wedding website with photos, share with friends on Facebook and a unique feature not found on all other site offering similar services is if the couple that is getting married speaks different languages and have guests who speak a language other than English they can send invitations to family members and friends in the language of their choice so everyone is happy and not confused!

Two Wed has a variety of personalized wedding website templates to help you create a website that expresses your love as a couple and displays your journey, all the more building excitement for the big day!

Want your guests to say... "That Was Epic!" Do it with Glow Sticks!

I was at my first wedding that involved using glow sticks as a wedding reception accessory to encourage guests to get creative and have fun as the evening went on and the lights went dim. After having this experience I decided to check out other glow stick wedding trends and I came across a whole bunch of ideas to make your wedding epic! Some brides and grooms-to-be are drawn to glow sticks when they are planning their bachelorette and bachelor parties because lets face it, when you are celebrating with your closest friends, having some drinks, and letting loose glow sticks just ramp up the party a few more notches with their bright colours and multitude of options when it comes to wearing them. I found a website that is dedicated solely to glow sticks and light accessories making the possibilities endless for your pre-wedding celebrations and of course wedding reception fun. has the best bulk prices I have seen for glow sticks, way cheaper than the Dollarstore and Michael's where people tend to think of going when purchasing party supplies. I can't get over the unbelievable selection has which includes:

Glow Bracelets
Glow Necklaces
Glow Sticks
Glow Accessories
Flashing Jewelry
Flashing Barware & Decor
LED Flashing Party Supplies
LED Flashing Light Sticks

Sometimes people shy away from shopping online because of the shipping price but with shipping is always free for orders over $30! There are so many creative ways brides and grooms are using glow sticks at their wedding and if you are looking for a few ideas check out Pinterest.

Sweet Guest Favour Alternatives with Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes and The Five Almonds

Are little wedding trinkets or themed wedding favours just not cutting it for you? Do you want something your guests will enjoy rather than tossing it in the garbage or junk drawer when they get home? Well I have some "sweet" alternatives for you and your guests. At my wedding I opted for something my guests could enjoy either at the wedding or take home... cookies. My maid-of-honour made an assortment of cookies and we had goodie bags for our guests to choose their selection to eat during the reception or take home with them. People love food so you can't go wrong when giving your guests a tasty treat. I have come across a couple fabulous online shops to order the perfect wedding favours from and more, it makes my mouth water just looking at all of the different options brides-to-be have...

Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes is a Sydney, Australia based shop loved and owned by Patricia. I loved reading her story about how she got started and it makes her cakes and cupcakes that much more special rather than coming from a factory pumping out hundreds of the same item. Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes makes fabulous wedding cakes, and other special event cakes but what I love most is their cupcakes! This is where you can wow your guests and give them their own tasty treat to take home and enjoy even after the wedding is over.

Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes has sooo many fabulous cupcake designs in their gallery to choose from and you can create your own perfect cupcake by contacting Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes and sharing your wedding colours, theme, ideas, and most importantly the flavours you love!

The Five Almonds (Les Cinq Amandes) is another online shop based in New York, U.S.A worth checking out when thinking about your wedding favours; these are not your grandmother's candy coated almonds... they are absolutely decadent! The Five Almonds has a long history which began even before their shop was created; reading their unique story will truly give you an appreciation for their product. If your wedding is simple and chic or glamorous and over the top, The Five Almonds will have something for your wedding and anything in between. From their world renowned sugared almonds to hand painted artisan chocolate, The Five Almonds has endless options for your wedding favours.
