Tips to Enjoy Your Wedding Day

Did you realize that there is a fine line between how you can enjoy your wedding day and having a meltdown on your wedding day? I have compiled a list of the best wedding day advice I could give a bride who is planning her wedding (who wants to avoid a meltdown). Here is my top wedding tips list of three things that I have seen brides do, that keep them cool, calm and collected on their wedding day.

1. Trust Your Vendor Team – We do this all the time

This may be the first time that you are the bride, and you are faced with a TON of important decisions, but rest assured that your wedding day vendors have done this plenty of times. We have seen a lot, and have the experience to know what works and what may be risky. As you go through the wedding day planning process and especially on your big day, listen to your vendors’ recommendations and suggestions. We speak from experience.

2. Expect Something to Go Wrong

How to Avoid Stress on Your Wedding

As anyone getting married knows all too well, planning a wedding can be both an exciting time and a very stressful one. Although one is looking forward to tying the knot, there are many things to be organised and to take into consideration to ensure that not only the wedding goes smoothly but all the guests have a fantastic time too.

Unfortunately this means that for many people the actual wedding day itself can be particularly stressful, when it should in fact be one of the happiest days of your life. To make sure that your stress does not get out of control on your wedding day, try these pieces of advice to stay calm and ensure everything goes smoothly.

The first thing to do to ensure that you are less stressed about your wedding day is to eliminate the threat of uncertainty. Unpredictable things happen, especially at those occasions where something is bound to go wrong if you are desperately praying for things to go right. Maybe your solo wedding singer will be 30 minutes late after being stuck in

Wedding on Budget

When planning a wedding on a budget you have to lower your requirements just a bit. For example, you can’t try to have to filet mignon if you are throwing the wedding on a fish stick budget. I have broken down the various aspects of the wedding planning to the last details so that you will get a better idea of what I mean.

Ideally, you would want to have at least a year to plan the wedding, but that is not always possible or desired. For the purposes of this guide, I have set up a 12 month wedding timeline that will certainly make it a little bit easier to host your wedding.

12 months before your Wedding day
– Announce the engagement
– Set your wedding date
– Create a budget
– Hire a Wedding Coordinator (optional)
– Create your guest list
– Start brainstorming ideas and themes
– Reserve your Ceremony spot
– Book an Officiate

Making the Bride Glamorous On Her Wedding

The marriage ceremony

When man and woman commit to be united in matrimony, the marriage ceremony comes first in the preparation. To most people, marriage is a major event, a lifetime commitment that should be celebrated differently from all other occasions. Most couples want their ceremony to be unique and memorable, a grand wedding day celebration! Normally, the ceremony is celebrated taking into consideration the culture, tradition, religion, and social standing of the celebrants. During this occasion, the bride and groom wear fabulous wedding outfits while family members and guests wear formal outfit for the occasion. Most weddings, have adopted the traditional custom of wearing white wedding dress with a veil for the bride. In addition, the exchange of marriage vows is a major part of the wedding.

The bride

During the wedding, the most important person for the day is the bride. On that special occasion, the bride should be the most beautiful woman of the day. She does not only wear her most beautiful wedding dress, but also wears jewelry and accessories for personal adornment. Bridal jewelry is made special from a wide range of materials, gemstones, and other precious materials to match

Look Your Best On Your Wedding Day And In Wedding Photos

A lot of eyes are on the bride on a wedding day, but eyes are also on the groom, – especially the eyes of the bride!… Read on for some groom’s grooming tips:

Skin Care for Him

Skin care is important for anyone. Consider booking for a series of facials before your wedding. If that’s not your thing, you can find men’s exfoliator products that you can use at home. These help the skin look fresh by removing dry skin. And a little moisturiser never astray.

Oral Care

Easily over looked but very noticeable if forgotten, is bad breath and inflamed gums, especially when you up close and personal with friends and relatives on your wedding day, – not to forget the bride! Get a check up 6-12 months before your wedding day and have any oral problems sorted by the big day.

Hair Suggestions for Grooms

Unless you have a nondescript hairstyle, such as a buzz cut, avoid getting a haircut the day before your wedding. Consider seeing your hairdresser about a week before, so you will look well groomed but not be dealing with that fresh haircut look.


Beauty Tips for the Wedding Day for the Mother of the Bride

The realization that all eyes will also be on you, the Mother of the Bride, on the wedding day eventually happens to each mother. This realization often leads to uncertainty as to what to wear, how to look and wondering what’s in style, and uncertainty about her own beauty ‘look’ and style.

The best thing to do to relieve any uncertainties and answer all of your questions about what to wear is to plan ahead. Make yourself a priority as part of the wedding planning. Most brides typically plan ahead for their wedding(12 – 14 months is the average wedding planning time), so there’s plenty of time for you to explore all of your options.

In this article, you’ll find five beauty tips that will help you begin to think about your personal beauty for the big day.

Weight Loss

An upcoming wedding where you will be hostess as the mother of the bride is a great motivator to lose those stubborn 20 pounds! Begin to do so very early in the timeline. It’s likely that you’ll need to buy your dress or outfit about four months or so before the wedding. It’s tradition

How To Capture Stunning Photos On Your Wedding

Things To Make You Look Great On Your Wedding

1. Choose your dress well in advance. Your dress is one of the most important items in your wedding plans, so make sure you take enough time to choose one that suits you – not your best friend, not your bridesmaids, and not your mother. For the day of your wedding, you’ll want a dress in which you can stand, walk and dance in without worrying about “wardrobe malfunctions” or causing you discomfort. Allow necessary time if you decide on having the dress made, but even if bought “off the rack,” you’ll need to factor in time for tailoring and any adjustments. Choosing a comfortable wedding dress will make you look natural on the wedding day, it also helps the wedding photographers and videographers to capture more great moments. Imagine if the bride has always to worry if her wedding dress will fall, she will not have a natural or pleasant facial expression, and it will make your wedding photographers and videographers have a hard time doing their job to capture the “great” moments.

2. Choose a classic hair style. You don’t want to overpower your dress and headpiece with a flamboyant hair style or color that

Wedding Day Tips

As a professional wedding photographer, I’ve seen my share of problem weddings that only add to the ever-present wedding stress. Planned improperly from the get-go, no one person is to blame, but the outcome is upsetting for everyone involved.

Fresh Wedding Flowers

Why is it important to organize your fresh wedding flowers for your wedding day?

After all, planning a wedding involves lots of details. There are rings to buy. You need to make a list of friends and family to invite. A wedding dress to order. A marriage license to apply for. Showers, parties, and much, much more.

And, you have so many people to keep track of. Bridesmaids and a maid of honor to select. Ushers, groomsmen, your mom and dad, the groom’s mom and dad. Grandma and Grandpa. Oh yes, your husband to be. A flower girl and ring bearer.

Why Flowers are Important to Your Wedding Party
Each of these people are important to you and take a visible role in your wedding. They march down the aisle at church. They attend your reception. They are in your wedding photos.

Each of your special guests wears a special arrangement of fresh wedding flowers to celebrate your day with you. Wedding flowers are a sign of a fresh new life. The oldest story of a man and woman joined in marriage is Adam and Eve in a garden, the Garden of Eden.

• Make a Folder

Make a folder for all the multitudes of wedding information you will gather. Pick up a concertina style file from any office stationery shop and label the sections according to the different aspects of your wedding. Eg. Make a section for venues, one for invitation samples, one for flowers, one for cakes, one for dresses, one for cars, photographers, bonbonniere ideas etc. etc. Place any quotes, information or clippings you collect from magazines, advertisements, etc into sections for easy reference later on in the planning process. Planning everything early, leaves you less stressed, stops you from becoming a ‘bridezilla‘, and allows you to enjoy the experience of organizing your own wedding.

Tips to Planning a Successful Wedding

1) Importance of an Engagement Photo Session

An engagement photography session is the precursor and preview to your wedding day! It serves as an announcement and proclamation of your love for each other. Most often, clients use some of their engagement photos in wedding announcements and for “Save the Date” cards. We have received numerous phone calls and photos letting us know that the engagement pictures we shot are now placed proudly around their home. It is amazing going to shoot a wedding and seeing the pictures from the engagement photo session displayed on a table for everyone to see.

Engagement pictures showcase a couple’s love, romance, and affection for each other. Often times, couples don’t realize the importance of such an investment. However, engagement pictures help to bring back the memories of where you came from as a couple, where you love began, where it grew, and how it has come to the future wedding you are now planning.

Tips in Getting the Right Wedding Photographer for Your Wedding

There are quite a few variations in the style of wedding photography. The style of wedding photography depends on the type of photographer your wedding photographer is.

There will be less of the usual gathering of the couple and guests to pose for photographs. The photographer is almost invisible to the family and friends and simply capture the moments as they happen.

This style of wedding photography creates a narrative and more natural style, each photograph will help tell a comprehensive story of your wedding day. It starts with how the bride prepares for her special day, and ends with the party that comes after. The whole idea of documentary wedding photography is to capture moments in a chronological order as it happens during your wedding day.
