Who shall we invite to the wedding? This can be a tricky question for betrothed couples far and wide. Your budget can have a big influence on your guest list, as can your personal preferences. Whether you want to keep things informal and low-key or push the boat and go for a big and bold affair, chances are you will want to send out invitations to let your guests know about your forthcoming nuptials.
You’ve sorted out the photographer and have thought long and hard about the type of wedding pictures you would like to commemorate your special day. Photographs are great for capturing certain moments – and you can look back fondly at pictures of your chosen wedding cars, outfits, your wedding party, the guests, flowers etc. However, they can’t catch more than just a moment. For this you will need a wedding video – a mini-movie perfectly depicting the mood of the day and every special part of it.
The photographs from your wedding day are ones you will surely treasure forever as you relive your special day over and over again through the images captured by your wedding photographer. Therefore, they need to really portray the intensity and feeling of the day, the look of love between you and your better half, the beauty of your venue
You have enjoyed a wonderful wedding day celebration, sashayed down the aisle into the arms of your beloved and joyfully exchanged “I do’s.” You have your nearest and dearest surrounding you and really do not want the day to end. So why should it? How about you keep the party rolling on and go for some after-party fun. There are plenty of ways you can make your celebration last a whole lot longer.
Your wonderful wedding guests have showered you with love and affection all day long. They’ve beamed at you as you exchanged vows, taken photographs, thrown confetti and danced the evening away with you. On top of that they have voyaged from far and wide to be with you, and spent a small fortune on travel, their outfits and a very generous wedding gift. So, it’s only fitting that in addition to formally thanking them for their attendance you also offer a small token of your appreciation for their love and support on your big day.
When it comes to helping out in the days leading to the big event, and on the day itself, the “wedding party” comes into its own. A posse of the bride and grooms nearest and dearest, often consisting of the mother and father of the bride and groom, best man, ushers, maid of honor, bridesmaids and a cute ringbearer and flower girl or two. That’s plenty of helpers’ keen to do their utmost to make the day one to remember for all of the right reasons. So how do you say thank you to them all and show them just how grateful you are?
The busy bride-to-be is racing around trying to make sure that the “to do” list is on target for the big “I do.” The bridal shower presents a fabulous opportunity for her to relax and hand over the organizer’s reins (albeit briefly). The bride-to-be gets to share pre-wedding excitement (and nerves) with the lovely ladies in her life. In turn, they shower the bride-to-be with thoughtful gifts and profound wisdom.
