I want my guests to
dance all night. How do
I get everyone on the floor?
If your guests are in their 30s and
40s, you may want to have a great
'80s set of music with a Madonna
or Prince song thrown in. If they
are on the younger side and fans
of today's hot EDM (electronic
dance music), try tracks from
top DJs like Avicii or Tiësto.
Of course, there are always the tried-and-true classics
to fall back on. Who doesn't love a little Sinatra or
Etta James? - Darren Olarsch, President, on the move
We asked Alain Simon, the in-demand florist
behind Montreal's Alain Simon fleurs, to
share the flowers his clients request most.
The top four?
Hydrangeas · Roses · Peonies ·
"We take these flowers and play with color,
texture and shape to create arrangements
that are clean yet still have that 'wow' factor," Simon notes.

In weddings as in real estate, location reigns supreme.
Whether you're seeking a hidden gem for your honeymoon
or anniversary, or a dazzling locale for the main event, these
extraordinary destinations deliver romance and fantasy in
At Penha Longa Resort in Sintra, Portugal (above),
couples can wed at an exquisite landmark monastery on the
grounds of the property, surrounded by elegant gardens,
lush green hills and crystal clear lakes.
The grand ballroom at The Ritz Carlton, Seoul offers two
floors of guest seating, a soaring atrium and state-of-the-art
acoustics and video, creating the distinctive ambience of the
opera. The star performers? The bride and groom, of course.
The floating dining room of The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg,
in Germany, is situated on a lush island in the inner harbor
of a canal. The perfect spot for a marriage proposal or an
anniversary celebration, the island is accessed via luxurious
"Riva"-style motorboats, and the intimate trip is accompanied
by private butler service, food and champagne.
