Cairns Wedding Gift Ideas
Nowadays its pretty common practice for a bride and groom to set up a Wedding Gift Registry for all of those items that you wish for your matrimonial home or for your dream honeymoon. There is nothing worse than receiving a pair of striped cotton flannel sheets that just do not match your Queensland lifestyle or a vase that is so unattractive you do not even want to have it hiding under the sink as you will have to send a heart felt sincere thank you card to your family or friend for these items that you will have to pull out and put on display when they visit and if you forget by jinkies you could be in for the Spanish inquisition. Or you could be practical and just re-gift to someone else who may just appreciate the offer, give it to a charity or sell it on e-bay and when they ask just be honest and tell them it did not fit with the interior of your home and you felt someone else was better off for owning it and admiring it.
Wedding Gift Registry
If some of your wedding guests are unfortunately the type of guests that may just buy any old gifts based on price or on a sale due to their own unfortunate personal circumstances at the time then this may be the perfect way for you both be happy and it will not embarrass them for not purchasing a big wedding gift due to their own current situations and it assists to offer them alternatives of how to at least make a small contribution to your wedding or honeymoon gift that you both really desire so a positive outcome is achieved for all and to be modern in the 21st century and have a Wedding Gift Registry is definitely the way to go so no one's feelings can get hurt or either of you be placed in an uncomfortable embarrassing situation where you may need to tell a pink lie or an embellished story to both ultimately embarrass yourself and the wedding gift giver.
Just have a good look around on the internet for a Wedding Gift Registry and then get shopping at your favourite stores and load them onto your gift registry now to circumvent the above.
Honeymoon Gift Registry
Another idea for your wedding gifts is to put together a list of the tours and sightseeing activities you would like to do on your Cairns Honeymoon and send this out to your guests so they can purchase the tour for you as a present instead of material items that you may not even need dependant on your current habitual situation. These honeymoon tours can be for horse riding along a beachfront, hot air ballooning, a scuba diving course, a relaxing massage in the day spa followed by cocktails on the beachfront. Romantic dinners in popular restaurants or even bar tabs at a favourite club or bar you really want to go to.
All you need to do is research the Cairns tours and attractions at the tour specialists make the list of tours you desire to experience on your Cairns Honeymoon and send it to the Cairns Holiday Specialists and they can put it all together for you to email to your friends and family to then select the tour or item they wish to purchase for you and your partners Cairns honeymoon and then book them direct with the Cairns Holiday Specialists to get your bonus wedding Discount Prices.
Friends and family can get together to purchase the more expensive items by just ringing Cairns Holiday Specialists on 1300 852 526 to put money towards a particular item and they will keep the guests name register there for you to send the thank you notes after the honeymoon excitement is over.
Another gift idea is to have a wishing well at the wedding reception where guests can place little envelopes with money inside to contribute towards your honeymoon. Correct etiquette is to attach these envelopes to the back of the wedding invitations with a note on them saying that if they wish to contribute to your honeymoon then please bring this envelope along and place it in the wishing well.

Super Stretch Limousines
The latest arrival in the Stretch Limousine market in Cairns is a pair of Stretch Hummers one Black and one white each seat fourteen people, what a fabulous way for the Groom and his groomsmen and the Bride and her bridesmaids to arrive at their wedding one each. For the ultimate arrival in luxury with a few of your wedding party guests you could choose to arrive at your wedding ceremony in style in a Super Stretch Chrysler limousine that seats up to eight guests around the interior of the car.

For more ideas on arriving to your wedding ceremony in style call the wedding specialists at Cairns Holiday Specialists and they will give you all the local advice on all the types of transport that are available for your big wedding day entrance.
Cairns Marriage Celebrants
Funny enough most of the Cairns Marriage Celebrants are female with just a handful of males to choose from. Maybe this is just due to the female species being more romantic and commitment orientated who knows?
If you are not having a traditional church wedding with a priest then you will need to select a Marriage Celebrant to perform the legalities of lodging the wedding papers to confirm your Cairns wedding with the Australian government to confirm that you were legally married. Your Cairns Wedding Celebrant will give you all of the legal papers that will need to be lodged 30 days or more prior to your wedding ceremony and they will further advise you on anything else you will need to do to confirm your identities and that you are not already married etc.
When choosing a Cairns Wedding Celebrant you will have to discuss with them the venue you desire for your wedding ceremony to see if they are able to cater to your individual wishes.
Cairns Marriage Celebrants will design a wedding ceremony around the type of wedding you are having like a casual beach wedding or a formal function room or even an underwater ceremony or a hot air balloon ceremony up high in the sky so just make sure when you are interviewing them that you ask if they are able to perform a skydiving ceremony or an underwater ceremony as not all of them are keen on performing these sorts of wedding ceremonies.

Cairns Wedding Entertainment
There can be two or three types of entertainment you may want to consider for your Cairns wedding with the first being the type of entertainment you would like to keep your guests entertained for your arrival at the Cairns wedding ceremony and then the type of entertainment you would like at your Cairns wedding reception venue.
As with all entertainment you will need to check with the Wedding Planner on any special permits needed and any other rules or regulations and you will also have to check with the wedding function venue for their policies and procedures on wedding entertainment.
Other wedding entertainment you may also want to consider is for the children that may be attending your Cairns wedding. This can be fun as you could have a clown or face painters that may amuse the children and play games with them to keep them entertained during the speeches and things, I'm sure even their parents would love this type of entertainment.
You can choose to engage a professional Cairns Wedding entertainment company to show you the line up of local musical acts and performers or you can do the hard work and try and find them over the internet. We think the latter is probably the best as then you know the musicians are booked, fully accountable and will turn up and act professionally.
If you are having a late afternoon evening wedding function you could have some fire stick throwers or haunting sounds of the didgeridoo off in the distance, some bongo players or classy crooners coming in from the shadows. You could have so much fun arranging your Cairns Wedding Entertainment.

Cairns Wedding Themes
Planning a theme for your wedding can be a lot of fun and it can also be a big headache or even sometimes a catastrophe if you try and co-ordinate it all by yourselves. You are much better off to engage a professional Cairns Wedding Theme company to take care of all of the arrangements so that you can get on with looking after everything else for your Cairns wedding.
Wedding theme lighting and audio is an area only for professionals and the domain of a Cairns wedding theming company that knows their limitations and the function venue layout that you will be having your Cairns wedding reception.
Your wedding theme is only limited by your budget really as you can buy someone else's imagination and talent to put it all together for your wedding day so take a look here at some of the Cairns Wedding Theme planners and see what they can do for you.
Cairns Wedding Stationary
Wedding stationary is still very popular even given the current internet age that we live in. Couples still love to have that formality of designing an embossed or specially hand made wedding invitation that is delivered by post to their friends and family. You may want to engage a professional calligraphy writer or have the invitation printed with all the important timing and destination details inside.
As a teaser to your wedding guests you could even send them a postcard from Cairns asking them to save the date for a special event. This could be a professionally taken photograph of yourself and your bride or groom to be in Cairns snorkelling or skydiving above Cairns that could then be printed on a postcard and put in the post. Just imagine how excited grandma would be to come and join you in some of this exciting fun. Cairns may be on her bucket list of destinations to come and visit and your wedding has now given her that opportunity.
After you have sent out the save that date postcard you then need to get on with designing the wedding invitations, the gift registry, the table placement cards, personalised table napkins, wedding envelope seals, RSVP cards, direction and map cards to ensure your guests arrive safely and on time, thank you cards, wishing well envelopes for donations of monies instead of bringing gifts to the wedding, bridal shower invites, guest books, engagement invites, hens night invitations, wedding cake bags and lots of other wedding stationary items that will drive you crazy just thinking about them. So the answer is go to a one stop shop for the best advice and look at the designs on offer make your choices according to your wedding theme, wedding budget and your wedding invitees.
Cairns Wedding Dress and Suit Hire
Oh how exciting you are finally going to get married to that man you had been hoping was going to propose to you and now the fun begins where you start planning that fantasy wedding you have always dreamed of. Normally the first thing a girl does is race to the internet or the newsagents and start looking around at the latest fashions for wedding attire. The bride to be normally also engages her girlfriends in this frenzied activity to make it even more exciting as they laugh and giggle away at some of the more old fashioned or alternative wedding fashion out there.
Normally you cannot hire a wedding dress as the material is so delicate it cannot cope with the continual alterations need for all the differing body types so you will need to speak with a couple of wedding dress makers and set a budget for yourself and then get to work with planning the design together. Just make sure you give your wedding fashion designer at least a minimum of six months to come up with a design and type of material you are after as Cairns Wedding Designers are very busy all year round.
Also do not suddenly go on some fad diet to lose weight fast as you will no doubt plateau at some stage and then probably give in and go back to your normal weight which will then mean a costly and potentially damaging alteration to your dream wedding dress.
Take a piece of the wedding dress material and have a look around for some shoes and ribbon to match your wedding dress colours so you will look perfectly co-ordinated on the big day.
Cairns Suit Hire
For men a wedding in most cases is usually very simple. They are told to go and hire a suit (even though it is often recommended you go with them if they are not normally suit wearing people) and turn up on the wedding day at a certain time and a certain place with their best buddies as the groomsmen. Some men take a keen interest in fashion and now
That men's wedding fashion has thankfully become as fun and creative as a brides wedding gown now it's a good idea to have a look on the internet for the current fashions and then visit your local Cairns Wedding suppliers to see what they carry in stock or what they can order in for your wedding day that will co-ordinate with the wedding day theme and your wedding dress.
Pre-wedding Health and Beauty
Some people say your inner health shines on the outside and this can be somewhat true when you look at a person that has been smoking or abusing themselves for a very long time so it's a good idea as soon as you announce your wedding that you both get your lives into a bit of a healthy active routine and adopt good eating habits as you will be having your pictures being taken all day and you certainly don't want the unattractive one's showing up an anyone's mantle piece or photo albums on the coffee table for the rest of your life.
Start going for a walk for half an hour each day in the fresh air and get some sunshine on your back and then work your way up to some swimming or light jogging and then maybe even consider joining up for some fun classes at the gym with your girlfriends or buddies to make it more fun.
If you're a smoker then try and kick the habit and if needed see a hypnotherapist to try and assist you in beating this addiction. Not only will you start to actually taste the food that you eat but you will actually smell a lot sweeter as well and you will get that healthy skin colour back again.
For the ladies monthly visits to the beauty salon to get your hair, nails and skin in mint condition is a must as you will be the main focus on your big wedding day so get to work now and start to make yourselves look fabulous.
Cairns Wedding Hair Stylists and Make Up Artists
When your hair is in great condition it is easier to achieve that stunning wedding hairstyle you have selected so make sure you have your hair cut regularly to ensure you have no split ends or straggly bits. Have regular deep conditioning treatments at your hair salon many months in advance of your wedding day to ensure it is shining and is as healthy as it can possibly be. If your hair is coloured make sure you and your hairdresser have it done perfectly just a few days before the wedding to give it time to let it settle down and look more natural.
Of course watch what you eat and choose foods that will help in the health of your hair and nails and again start this healthy routine at least twelve months before your wedding day.
As yours will be a tropical wedding in a balmy environment make sure you choose a wedding hair style that will last the distance without having to have a permanent hairdresser beside you all day long primping your loose hair pieces. Also take into consideration where you will actually be conducting your wedding ceremony and holding the wedding reception because if it is a beach wedding then you need to plan for it to be potentially a little bit windy and especially windy if you are on a private charter boat.
Your Cairns Wedding Hair Stylist is your best adviser on the products to use to make your hair stay in place all day and it is also a good idea if you try a pre-wedding hair do try out to ensure that you like the look and that it's the definite hair style you want for your Cairns wedding day.
Cairns wedding Make Up Artists
For your makeup just ensure you have some fun playing around with some pre-trial runs on a new look before your wedding day otherwise if you don't you are asking for a bridezilla melt down moment on your wedding day which can spoil everything even your dress if there are tears and you forgot the waterproof make up.
Always remember make up artists are just that they are not miracle makers and they need you to show up with clean healthy skin and maybe a photograph or two of how you want to look. Just a few shots of you made up by another make up artist that has used the colours and blending you desire is very handy so your make up artist has an idea on your perfect look.
You may even want to have a pre-wedding trial with your chosen make up artist just to make sure the look you desire is going to be the one you are truly happy with on your wedding day. One other consideration is also the same as above think about the location of your wedding the outdoor elements you will be exposed to and for what periods of time as there's nothing worse than sweltering under thick make up that looks as bad as it feels. As the old saying goes minimalise and if your skin is healthy and glowing then you should not have too many problems.Register Your Wedding with Cairns Holiday Specialists and Receive a Free List Of Cairns Wedding Suppliers
Cairns Wedding Chapels
Non denominational wedding chapels have really become increasingly popular over the last ten years especially for the Japanese couples that wish to marry in Australia in western costume and then go back to Japan to have a traditional Japanese Temple wedding.
Wedding chapels are usually in a pristine white colour and have some of the most magnificent views that look out across oceans and beaches, across rivers and mountains or in glorious gardens surrounded by tropical gardens and ponds or reflection pools.
In Cairns city there is one uniquely modern architecturally designed non denominational chapel that sits in tropical gardens surrounded by a reflection pond that overlooks the Trinity Inlet and the surrounding rainforest clad mountains of Cairns. This beautiful white chapel has internal seating for thirty four guests however should you have more guests, then a stand up seat configuration could increase this to around eighty five guests. The interior is fully air-conditioned and all windows are floor to ceiling to take in the most magnificent views.
There is also another quaint privately owned chapel in Cairns that is set in the rainforest surrounded by beautifully kept manicured gardens. Close by there is also a little deck area for a celebratory drink after the wedding ceremony that overlooks a freshwater brook. This little chapel can accommodate a wedding guest list of thirty invited guests all sitting down.
