poročna vabila diy

Wedding invitations are (after the announcement of a marriage in one way or another) in fact the first slightly more formal contact with your wedding guests. The first step can be the “save the date” cards. In Slovenia, this is not very common, very often the future groom and bride orally inform the wedding guests about the date of the wedding before they send out the invitations.

Wedding invitations are an important part of wedding planning, because they can serve as the first hint of the style of your wedding, and at the same time inform your guests of all the most important things related to the wedding. Although I was convinced that the wedding invitations are going to be one of the simplest things of the wedding planning, I was considering of leaving this part to the experts. But in the end, especially with regard to the financial input, I went through the entire process of the visual design, the purchase of materials, etc. – with the help of my wedding organizer Blažka (Infinity events), my friend Žiga Adamčič (who helped me with graphic design) and my dear cousin (who helped me find the an affordable printer). I am aware of the fact that our invitations could have been made in a much simpler way, but I like to create and hand out perfect end-products. It’s just the way I am.

You can read some of the tips that might come in handy when creating your wedding invitations below.

I found my dress… by accident.

It wasn’t exactly a movie scene – without sparkling wine and sweets and without my closest friends (the photos are deceiving haha). It all started when I agreed to shoot an editorial and to do an interview for Zaobljuba wedding magazine. I was acquinted with the bridal salon Sanjska obleka even before this photoshoot, from times when I was modelling or working as a presenter. I knew that when looking for my own wedding dress, I would definitely check out Sanjska obleka, because of their varied, trendy and beautiful collection known for high quality. It all happened very rapidly and I didn’t even have a chance to go on a hunt for my perfect wedding dress with my best friends.

While preparing for the editorial of the new issue Zaobljuba wedding magazine (which by the way is already out), Tjaša the editor of the magazine and went for a trip to Kamnik, where we together selected some wedding dresses that were featured in the magazine. I was changing dresses rather quickly (without even looking in the mirror), turning towards Tjaša for her approval. I tried about ten of them (probably even more, I do not remember well) and when I tried on the last one I received a reaction from Tjaša: “This one! This one should be featured on the cover”. She continued: “If you will not want to wear it for your wedding?” I finally turned around and looked into the mirror and a confused smile draw on my face. I responded: “I don’t know. I didn’t have have this kind of a dress in my mind. What if, what if this is my perfect dress”, I was thinking. Is it possible that I will eventually decide on a dress that I would probably never even choose to try on in the first place? I had at least dozen of dresses on my phone selected from Sanjska obleka webpage, which I considered to be a “real candidates” for my perfect wedding dress. The dress did not end up neither on the front page nor in the editorial but is patiently waiting for my wedding day.

All the other dresses were forgotten in a minute when I saw mine. On one hand, it’s a classical one but it’s just a little bit different on the other hand. It has some trendy touches, but it’s also vintage and it goes perfectly with the entire theme of our wedding day.

Any other dress that I’ve tried afterwards didn’t give me the same feeling. And no – my moment when I found the perfect dress was far from what we’re to seeing in movies or reading on the web. I did not immediately know that it’s “the one”. I did not even expect to find it on that day. The dress surprised me, and definitely I surprised myself with the choice.

It is understandable that in wedding choices (even in a wedding dress), there are doubts. There is absolutely nothing wrong if you decide you need time think it over. Not every love is love at first sight. Each has its own story. Same applies to wedding dresses.

I returned to Sanjska obleka. For the first time for the dress I wore at a pre-wedding shooting and the second time when I returned it (and I tried my wedding dress again then). I paid my last visit there with my closest friends, whose opinion I value highly – with my long-time friend Gala and her daughter Ella, with my namesake Ajda Gregorc, fashion expert and blogger, my friend Tesa and a photographer Pia Hočevar Mucić. Again I tried some of the favorites from a variety of dresses in the salon and finally put on my perfect dress, which was approved by all of my friends. We toasted to another hook on the Wedding 2019 list, had some desserts and a sweet chit chat. It was another wonderful day, certainly also due to “Sanjska obleka” and their wonderful, helpful and professional staff.

Do I have any doubts? I am calm because I know that the most important fashion wedding decision has already been made – my dream dress is chosen. I sometimes still cannot sleep thinking about the fact that I finally decided to go with something completely different than I thought I would. I have already tried a lot of wedding dresses, I had an idea of what fits me, I had a vision. But in the end, I chose a dress that I probably wouldn’t even try and I decided to go with it. And I’m glad I did. My advice to all the future brides who are looking for their dream dresses is to try also the ones that might not be your choice at first glance. You might be surprised!

My dream wedding dress will remain a secret to the wedding day, as it is befits the tradition. Although I’m not very superstitious myself, it seems like a fun thing to keep it a surprise. For Jan and the rest of the world. Well, with the exception of the girls that confirmed my choice of the wedding dress. Thanks to my favorite girls and thank you for the dream dress, Sanjska obleka bridal salon!

Nomago Travel nagradna igra

Po pestrih zadnjih letih je začetek leta 2019 zame precej miren. Vsaj v potovalnem smislu. Bookirano imam le eno letalsko karto, z Janom se v začetku meseca maja odpravljava raziskati destinacijo, ki sem jo že dolgo imela na svoji »travel bucket listi«. Jordanija – prihajava! V februarju, ko sem dopolnila 28. let in tako zares zakorakala proti tridesetim, me je kar malo zvilo – konec brezskrbnega študentskega življenja, čas je za stvari, ki bi jih lahko označila za (vsaj nekoliko bolj) resne. Ta občutek me spremlja ob še večji želji raziskati svet.

Potovanja sama od nekdaj povezujem s svobodo. Svobodo, ki bogati duha, razvaja telo in nadgradi um. Svobodo, ki se zagotovo ne bo končala tudi pri okrogli tridesetki, niti kasneje. Se pa bo zagotovo malo spremenila. Že občutek, ko imam letalsko karto v žepu (no, v resnici: v mailbox-u), mi nariše nasmeh na obraz. Rada raziskujem, okušam, rada planiram, a se vseeno pustim presenetiti. Moja idealna potovalna destinacija vsebuje pravi miks vsega – nekaj hedonističega razvajanja, pustolovskih dogodivščin, veliko dobre hrane (brez tega ne gre; če je v igri še sladek mango, pa še toliko boljše), malo počitka pod palmami in še malo več raziskovanja. Toplo morje in sonček sta samo pika na i.

Če tudi tebe že srbijo podplati in iščeš novo (ali že obiskano) destinacijo za raziskovanje, nujno preveri nagradno igro, ki jo je potovalna agencija Nomago Travel (prej STA potovanja) zaštartala 18. februarja in traja vse do 18. aprila 2019. V njej odkrij idealno destinacijo zase, povabi k sodelovanju travel buddyja ali pa ga preko aplikacije najdi ter osvoji letalsko karto za 2 osebi na sanjsko destinacijo.

V svojem življenju imam kar nekaj oseb, s katerimi delim strast do potovanj. Najraje potujem z Janom, najina raziskovanja naju prav vedno še bolj zbližajo (kar ja – je po 10ih letih še mogoče, če se je morda kdo spraševal) in so zagotovo tudi najini najlepši skupni spomini (čeprav priznava, sva rada doma tudi na kavču ob dobri nanizanki). Lansko leto sem veliko potovala z blogersko prijateljico Vaneso, ki je trenutno na porodniškem dopustu in se je tako že podala na eno najbolj razburljivih življenjskih popotovanj; enkrat na leto pa se na mestni potep odpravim tudi z mami (zadnja najina evropska prestolnica je bil Rim).

V nagradni igri, ki jo je pripravil Nomago Travel, sem tokrat kot svojega TRAVEL BUDDYJA označila blogersko prijateljico Teso, brez pomislekov odkljukala »oddih na tropskih plažah« in »začnem raziskovati« kot odgovor na drugo vprašanje »Kaj najprej narediš, ko prispeš na destinacijo?«. Končna destinacija, ki jo je aplikacija izbrala za naju je bila ŠRILANKA. Idealna lokacija, če me vprašate! Odkljuka prav vse moje kriterije, je država, ki je še nisem obiskala, istočasno pa imam na svoji listi želja eno pravo surfersko lekcijo. Enodelne surferske kopalke imam že naročene. Tesa pa mi je v nekaj sekundah po tem, ko je dobila mail s povabilom k sodelovanju napisala: »A potem praviš, da greva na Šrilanko?«. No, prej morava še zadeti letalski karti v nagradni igri…

Šrilanka je le ena od 20ih destinacij, na katere lahko ti in tvoj travel buddy brezplačno poletita v primeru zmage. Med destinacijami je kar nekaj evropskih mest, najdejo se tudi lokacije za ljubitelje adrenalinskih doživetij, velemest ali meni najljubših rajskih tropskih plaž. Nekaj je takšnih, ki sem jih jaz že obiskala, kar nekaj pa še ne. Pravzaprav bi sama takoj podpisala za katerokoli destinacijo, a je vseeno algoritem začutil, da sva s Teso že nekaj tednov nazaj govorili prav o Šrilanki.

Imaš svojega travel buddyja ali ga še iščeš? V vsakem primeru bo Nomago Travel poskrbel zate! Rabiš le nekaj sreče…

Klikni na spletno stran nagradne igre in odkrij sanjsko destinacijo zase in svojega travel buddyja. Če ga nimaš, pa bo dilemo, kdo naj gre s teboj v primeru zmage, rešil kar Nomago Travel – s pomočjo popotniške aplikacije te bo na podlagi ujemanja (kot nekakšen »popotniški Tinder«) povezal z idealnim sopotnikom. Me prav zanima, kakšnega sopotnika bi našla aplikacije zame (zagotovo pa vem, da bi hitro moral postati Instagram fotograf, ker brez fotografij pri meni ne gre – tudi če si na potovanju zares vzamem dopust).

Čeprav stiskam pesti, da izžrebajo mene in Teso (ter uresničijo najino željo po raziskovanju Šrilanke), bom res vesela, če bo izžreban kdo od vas. Klik klik na spletno stran, prijava ti bo vzela nekaj sekund in že si v igri za 2 letalski karti na sanjsko destinacijo!

Trevi fountain Rome - What to see

Quite surprisingly, the city of Rome impressed me more than I initially thought it could. The Italian capital convinced me with its beautiful markets, mighty buildings, wells, monuments and excellent food. Every corner reveals a rich history that extends from the time of the Roman Empire, to the Renaissance to the present. If you have 3 days and a couple of euros extra, Rome can be a great choice for a short trip. For a thorough and enjoyable trip, I recommend a day more, but nevertheless in three days you can see, taste and feel the city.

3 days in Rome – what to see, where to book your hotel, tips & tricks and more in this Rome Itinerary.
