Making Your Wedding Plans

I'll confess, I was a little concerned. So was her matron of honor, Emily, a young woman I enjoy. Em and I fretted just a bit over the possibility of clashing reds, yet one must support the bride's judgment. I certainly wasn't about to say anything! As it turned out, the bride was right.

Break everyone in to teams of two to four people and have them "scavenger" the nearby restaurants and shops (even their own homes or purses/wallets) for certain items related to the bride and groom. Examples: a take-out menu from their favorite restaurant, a photo with either of them in it, a napkin from the place they went on their first date, a quarter from one of their birth states, etc. Participants will have a crazy and fun time not only trying to figure out all the clues, but also getting to those places and back in time. Afterward everyone can gather at a central location and compare finds. You can play some of the more traditional games and questionnaires afterward as well.

As soon as my little man hears the oohs and ahhs of the crowds, he is happy as can be in his formal wear. Most small dogs have this type of attitude when it comes to wearing clothing and getting attention. This is why more dog owners are including their dogs in important events like weddings.

bridal Shower - Send the bride-to-be off to wedded bliss in style. Your gift basket can be a walk down memory lane as a single gal. Include framed photos of her growing up and being wild. Compile a CD of her favorite music from her younger days. Include an outfit that she would have worn years ago. For laughs, help her get into it and have her karaoke to some of the music on the CD you made.

2013 budget weddings are made much simpler with online shopping. Shopping online for a dress allows women to find amazing dresses at great prices. The internet increases available dress options. However, it is important to be cautious. Make sure the seller offers a return policy on all purchases in case the dress is not quite what was expected.

Find the wording for a contract that suits you. Include disclaimers for failed equipment, botch-ups at the lab, etc, stating that you'll refund on a pro-rated scale if not all was lost. Also, get paid before-hand. Don't do the job unless they agree with this arrangement. Pre-plan with the couple using a detailed checklist; there are many examples to be found on the Internet. Agree on the various family shots and portaits, as well as the standard ceremony pictures. It's well worth doing a dry-run before the wedding. By dry-run, I mean travelling to the location, finding a parking spot, and take a few exposures of a human subject at various distances. Then you're familiar with the environment, and will feel prepared on the big day. You won't need to do this as you gain more experience.

Dedicated wedding information websites. There are now websites solely devoted not just to planning a wedding, but to catering, wedding cakes, even dying shoes for weddings. These same websites often have directories of wedding vendors arranged by location.

Just a few weeks before my boyfriend proposed, I was browsing through a wedding magazine of a friend, when I saw a great wedding dress by fashion designer, Monique Lhuillier. It was a one strap gown that's fitted on the waist, with a skirt that flowed freely. The effect was ethereal, which is what I wanted to look like on my wedding day. When my husband asked me, "will you marry me?" my mind pictured that dress I found. So my mind was set, that was the dress for me, the only problem left was my body. I needed to find a way on how to lose my belly fat, or else, I would have to find a different dress that would hide my fat belly.

There are as many approaches to this part as there are weddings you'll shoot. But a good formula to start with is to offer an album with all the good shots, start to finish, as part of the over-all package. For film shooters, the negatives are sometimes handed over, but some times kept. Professional studios will not release the negs, as they stand to make significant income on reprints for the in-laws, etc. Another good reason for this is creative control - the client only sees your best work, making you look better, so - the approach it up to you. For digital shooters, provide a burned CD-ROM of the photos, less any garbage shots.

As for the color of the shoes, you must consider your bridal gown color at first. If you wear a white or cream-colored wedding dress, your shoes are certain to be the same color. Besides, shoes with color nuances such as silver or gold as well as the colors close to the flowers light color including light green, pale pink, lavender or pale yellow are also acceptable. What's more, if your wedding dress is fairly simple, you must focus on your shoes to take a brilliant one.

Black? When I was married bridesmaids wore pastels. Of course that was thirty-two years ago. My mother, who is much more hip with fashion than I, assured me black would be very stylish.
