Un beau jour : Martha & Alp

A wedding in Paris, then a little escape to the 77, the perfect formula for a pretty wedding that’s more chic than cool. Very chic. I love Martha’s tips, listen up! This girl knows what she’s talking about ;) (you future newlyweds will see, you’ll become the marriage Bible once yours has been organized).

Martin-Condomines

Martin Condomines founded this small company : « Say Cheers ».

« Say Cheers » started with the wish to reverse the traditional “Say cheese !” photos. Say goodbye to the kitsch poses surrounded by lavender, I want to tell the story of your wedding through a spontaneous photo coverage.

Beyond a taste in aesthetics, I had the chance to share with newlyweds these moments charged with exceptional emotions. Today I’m proud of playing my part in the success of their beautiful day. »
mariage conseils

1 - Ask and accept the help of your closest as well as professionals. We made the error of asking too late, and of not wanting to entrust the organization to others. We were so much more stressed than we needed to be.

2 - Think simple, only you will fuss over details. It’s better to spend the evening having fun with your guests than huddling up depressed in a corner just because it’s not meeting your every expectation.

3 - Don’t compromise things just to please your family members, you should realize something that reflects who you are. The wedding is your party, not your parents’.

Confetti Pop!

Today we bring you an awesome idea for homemade party poppers (with confetti using flower petals, grains of rice, sequins…). The type of idea that’s so fabulous that everyone will want to spend the day playing with them and organizing confetti launching battles in the garden. Also a super plan if you want hilarious and lively photos from the cocktail reception.

You will need:
- Rubber balloons
- Paper cubs
- Matching ribbon
- Double-sided tape
- A box-cutter or a pair of scissors

DIY-confetti-pop-how-to

These homemade party poppers are really fun to use: they throw confetti higher, further and more harmoniously than when we throw them by hand. It’s really like having a toy. For the photos, we used traditional confetti and it worked really well. But the top of the line is confetti made from tissue paper, it’s lighter, and has a real firework effect. Obviously we had a whale of  time in the office.

1. Cut your paper cup, about 1 cm from the base.

2. Now cut off a little hat from the balloons. Remove approximately a third of the balloon.

3. Take your paper cup without the base and surround the now hollow base with the double-sided tape, a little less than a centimeter. Then, make a knot in the tail of your balloon and place the little hat around the cup, trying to keep the knot well in the centre. Take your time to place the latex correctly to avoid folds, and push it around the diameter of the cup to stick it to the tape.

4. Add a little strip of ribbon and tie it just under the knot, tightening well… and it’s a simple as that, your confetti popper is finished.

To use your party popper, it couldn’t be easier: point your paper cup filled with handfuls of confetti (be careful not to over fill it) towards the person who you’re aiming at and sharply pull down the ribbon. If you want the confetti to fly even further, pull at the knot of the balloon directly.
