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.
It’s important to get some gorgeous snaps of your special day. You can look back in your twilight years and remember what a fabulous celebration you had (and marvel at how gorgeous you and your partner were when you were pert, well-dressed and all loved up)! You will also want to share your photographs with your nearest and dearest, work colleagues, neighbors, friends-of-friends, in fact anyone who you can get to take a look!
Last year, the average U.S wedding cost around $30,000 with approximately 140 guests attending to enjoy the special day with the bride and groom. That’s a lot of hard earned dollars to sink into a celebration, so how do you make sure you get value for the money and end up with the wedding of your dreams?
If you are busy thinking about your wedding you have probably got lots of wonderful ideas about the big day itself. There’s so much to discuss and decide on – what date to get hitched, where to tie the knot, and tons of other important stuff that is required to ensure your wedding goes off with a bang. What with outfits, flowers, and cakes, the list seems endless, and at the back of your mind you realize that your wedding day is going to cost quite a few dollars!
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.
The bride should choose her maid of honor with care, this pivotal role should be given to her nearest and dearest friend. There’s more to it than just wandering down the aisle, straightening the brides train. This is a role that carries a lot of responsibility, the brides right-hand-woman, the maid of honor needs to be cool, calm and collected. Chief problem solver, organizer, supporter and listener, the maid of honor is there to keep order and make sure the bride doesn’t go crazy!
