When applying perfume, be sure to spritz a little on your wrists and rub them together. This will give you a heavenly scent without being overpowering. When selecting your perfect fragrance for your wedding day, choose a fresh and clean perfume to give you just the right amount of scent.

Spicy Mustard

Transition from summer to fall with the use of mustard-yellow flowers. They’ll brighten up any room and look amazing in photos against white backgrounds.

Bodacious

Dusty pink is the “it” color this Fall. Think out-of-the box and bring this spring color into the mix, they can be the center of attention on any table. 

Potter’s Clay

Earth-tones like orange scream fall. Use orange florals to bring a warmer vibes to your setting and mix well with colors like red or white. 

Airy Blue

Don’t be afraid to bring a light hue into fall. A cool blue is the perfect accent to yellow flowers and keeps the room from visually getting too hot or too loud.  

Lush Meadow

Summer’s over but green stays all-year round. For florals, greens can be used to separate the colors in a bouquet and bring some life into the cluster.

 Cut
Choosing a diamond’s cut is one of the first steps while shopping. If a diamond is cut well, it will reflect more light making the stone appear larger. Diamond cuts include round, oval, princess (rectangular), marquise, cushion and emerald. The most popular cut today is round brilliant. 

Clarity
Measures the imperfections of a diamond inside and on the surface. The less flaws, the more expensive the diamond. However, most of these imperfections are not visible to the naked eye.

Carats
A carrot is the measurements used to weigh a diamond. The more carat weight, the more expensive the ring.

Color 
Diamonds come in every color of the rainbow but colorless (white) diamonds are rare and more costly. 
 
When searching for diamond rings, keep these 4 C’s in mind. Factors like color, cut and clarity can affect the costs but at the same time help you create the ring you’ve always dreamed of. Long Island Bride and Groom is the perfect place to start, view our digital magazine and shop from our list of Long Island's finest jewelers.

You’ve found the love of your life, now it’s time to celebrate! From margheritas to prosecco, ceviche to crostini, pairing the right drink to a food dish is key.

 

 

Below are some, entertaining tips and pairing/serving suggestions.  Adding a touch of DIY makes any party come to life.

 

Santa Margherita is a world-renowned Italian winery that produces a premium, top shelf wine. Pinto Grigio to Prosecco, Santa Margherita wines enrich their customer’s special occasions and add elegance to their lasting memories. Whether you want a Tuscan themed event or a tropical themed event, you are guaranteed to find the perfect wine for the occasion.

 

Party Ideas:

Ceviche Party:

 

A ceviche party is perfect if you are having a South American theme. Ceviche is a South American dish that consists of raw fish or seafood. However, other countries put their own spin on it. For this party, serve 3-4 types of ceviche (Caribbean, Mexican, Asian, Mediterranean, etc) and provide Prosecco and Pinot Grigio. If you are feeling extra creative, create your own signature cocktail using Prosecco or maybe make a Pinot Grigio sangria.

Crostini party:

Crostini’s bring the perfect taste of Italy to your Tuscan themed party. Savory pieces of toast are easy to assemble and you could even have you guests create their own! A simple ricotta and chopped fresh herbs or mascarpone with berries and honey crostini’s will have your guests feeling like they are in Italy. The possibilities are endless and your guests will have fun creating their own. Crostini’s are paired perfectly with Prosecco and Pinot Grigio.





Classic clambake party:

A clambake completes your beach themed party. Lobster, clams, mussels, and shrimp are essentials when having a clambake. A tip for having this type of party is to prep the food ahead of time. Put seafood in foil packets and place on the BBQ or a fire pit. You can even place them in a large pot on the stovetop. Whichever way you prefer, you are sure to bring the taste of the shore to your home. Serve with prosecco and pinot Grigio to enlighten your guest’s taste buds.


DIY ideas:


  • Using ribbon and charms, tie around stem of each glass with a different color ribbon or charm, so your guests don’t loose their glass.

  • Small potted herbs or succulents can be given to guests as a party favor. Place one at each setting and label guest name with paint marker.



  • Create garnishes, such as a wedge of pineapple or cube of cantaloupe, and place on toothpicks in a bowl. This will allow guests to garnish their own drinks and to be creative.

  • Purchase wine glass markers and allow guests to decorate their glass for identification. This is sure to bring out some fun!

anta Margherita’s Pinot Grigio is a dry white wine that consists of a straw yellow color.
The Santa Margherita Prosecco is a well-balanced, sparkling wine. It has a clean and satisfyingly fruity taste with a hint of rennet apples and peach blossom.



SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Excellent as an aperitif, and ideal with seafood salads or pasta and rice dishes based on fish and shellfish. Also perfect with white meats, boiled or grilled fish and soufflés.


Santa Margherita’s Chianti is a red wine that unfolds an aroma of flowers, fruit, spice and gunflint. 

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

 

Perfect match for very flavoursome dishes, such as juicy, strongly fragrant meat-based preparations or furred and feathered game of all kinds.
 

Whether you are planning your engagement party or your rehearsal dinner, these drink and food combinations are sure to get the party started. Santa Margherita’s wines help add the perfect touch to the theme of event.
