Documenting Your Lives Together From The Moment You Say “Yes”

From the moment he proposes, your lives will never be the same again. You are now officially a team, working together to enjoy a beautiful life as a married couple. Of course, the months between this moment and the time you arrive home from your honeymoon are going to whizz by. So much will happen, and it will change so fast that you might not have a chance to savor any of those beautiful moments. This is why more and more couples are documenting their journey from ‘Yes’ to ‘I Do’ and beyond.

It’s going to happen fast, so it’s worth planning or scheduling the important bits. Hire a photographer for the big proposal (assuming it’s not a surprise.) This gives you a chance to enjoy the moment and allows a professional to capture the look on each of your faces. If it’s a public proposal, then be sure to document everyone else’s reactions too. There will be cheers and congratulations to capture. You might want to include moments with each of your parents as they hear the happy news.

As you plan your wedding, there will be many more occasions that you might like to record. Sometimes it’s nice to take plenty of pictures of all the things you tried, even if you didn’t select them for the big day. This could include cake tasting, menu sampling, bouquet choices, and even dress fittings. These are the moments that add to the excitement of a wedding but seem to be forgotten by the time you reach your big day.

Last Moments Before ‘I Do’

What about your stag and hen parties? These events are very important to the bride and groom. It’s always worth preserving a few pictures of the night for the album. By now you already have plenty of images to compile in the book. You might start to consider how you wish to present them all when you come back from honeymoon.

Of course, by the time you reach your wedding day, you will have selected your preferred wedding photographer. There are often several different packages to choose from. Why not include shots of the bride getting ready and the wedding party assembling? The bride arriving at the ceremony, the happy couple saying their vows, and leaving the venue as a married couple are just the standard shots. Consider some posed shots to show off your hair and dress.

Now You’re Married!

Your reception will be a happy event attended by everyone you love. It’s important to capture group photos as well as individual pics of the people who were there. You might leave notes on the tables asking guests to upload pics of each other to your Instagram or FaceBook pages. This can help you decide which ones you want to include in your album later on.

Don’t forget to take a good quality camera on honeymoon with you. There will be plenty of interesting sights to see as well as amazing activities to share with your husband. All of these moments will be over all-too-soon. Thank goodness you have all those wonderful photos to relive and reminisce!

Things To Do When Choosing Your Dream Wedding Venue

We know what it is like; when it comes to your wedding there are more decisions to make than you can ever possibly comprehend. That’s why prioritizing your list is so important. Knowing what matters most on your big day is the only way you will be able to make sense of the endless options you’re staring at, but nothing is more important than your wedding venue.

This is one of the most important decisions you and your husband to be will make. This is because choosing where you will get married is a massive deal; it is what sets the tone of your day and is the superglue that will hold so much of your wedding together, and so much of planning will hang in the balance until you finally decide.

As such, we have come up with a few things to make a note of when it comes to choosing your venue. Enjoy.

Know The Budget

You and your partner need to be open, honest and committed to how much of your total budget you are willing to spend on getting the venue of your dreams. Is it going to be 25% of the budget? Or maybe half? This can be tricky, so make sure you know what you are getting with that money. Think about capacity, location, and how much bang they offer you for your buck.

Number Of Guests

You don’t need to have a fixed number. You don’t need to say, we are having 112 adults and 14 children. That’s because this number will change; it’s part and parcel of the guest list game. However, you should have a rough idea of how many people you want to join in with your celebrations. By knowing this, your vendors will be able to tell you how much they’ll charge, meaning you’ll know how much you have to spend, and what sort of wedding you’ll have; big or small.

Tour With The Photographer

This is often the most stressful and most fun part of the venue hunt, but to lean more toward the fun side of things we recommend is you take your chosen photographer along with you, if you can that is. Your photographs are going to be your reminder of that big day for years, so you’ll want to get this right. If you know you want to have the wedding in Lake Como, and you know you want to use Vittore Buzzi, then take them to the venue and let them help you decide what will look best. This will help this go smoother on the day and let them plan their shots a little more in advance.

Know Your Theme

Knowing what theme you want to run with on your big day will have a big sway over what venue you choose because certain style will complement certain venues more than others. Your wedding venue is going to be a huge party of love story you tell, so decide whether you want it to be inside or outside, formal or casual, country chic or black-tie. Your wedding planner and photographer will be able to help you understand how to best interpret this and bring it to life when it matters.

Wedding Dress Tips and Tricks

Are the days tickling next to your wedding day? Have you met all the prerequisite before the 11th hour comes beckoning on your side? If yes, you need to put everything right into place. One of the main concerns in any wedding day and to the couples is the wedding dress. The major problem that arises when it comes to choosing a wedding dress is the availability of hundreds of options. Today, wedding cost is majorly taken care of by the couple not unlike in the past where parents were involved. This means that cost needs to be put at bay. That is why attractive but inexpensive wedding dresses become almost necessary to everyone.

The mother of the bride dresses buying is not like buying a credit voucher where less is considered. When it comes to this kind of dress shopping, many factors are put into consideration. You may think of buying inexpensive wedding dresses that will not compromise the auspicious looks of the occasion. To achieve this, you need to put several factors into consideration and shopping wisely online.

Never buy a wedding dress without consulting with your spouse. You may end up over spending or using less money yet getting something that does not impress his eyesight. The budget that is put by each member of the team should be adhered to.  The gown color should not have a wide gap with that of your groom. Try to pick something that looks almost similar in terms of hue. The flattering appearance of your wedding dress should be appealing to everyone. To know about that, ask the groom and the other guys involved.

Before The Wedding: Tips To Keep Your Engagement Engaging

There’s nothing quite like getting engaged – it’s one of the most exciting days of your whole life and holds promises of even more exciting days to come. But when you’re in the middle of preparing for your wedding, it can be pretty stressful, which means that at times your relationship might be a little fraught. Here are some tips to help you ensure that your engagement is just as much fun as your relationship has been so far…

Look At Your Engagement Differently

A lot of people think of their engagement simply as the run-up to their wedding and spend all of their time planning for their big day. Try to take a step back from that, and focus on the current stage of your relationship instead of frantically planning for the next one. You’ve promised to spend your lives together but you haven’t made those vows just yet – it’s time to appreciate being committed and together and footloose and fancy free all at the same time.

Give Yourself Time

Getting married is incredible, of course, but it’s also one of the most stressful things you can do. A wedding might not seem all that difficult to plan but the truth is that it will take you a lot of time and cost you a lot of money – so don’t rush into it. Give yourself at least a year, preferably more, to organize your wedding. This will mean that you won’t get too stressed and you also won’t have too many problems with money as a result of not having much time to save.

Keep Communicating

The fact that you’re engaged doesn’t mean that your relationship is now magically perfect. Now more than ever you have to make sure that you keep working on it, learning how to talk to each other and how to be kind to each other, and focusing on your life together. You could even consider going to counseling – it isn’t just for people who are having problems. If that isn’t for you, make sure that you start to communicate in a productive way – explain the way you feel, don’t be dismissive or snappy, and trust your partner to understand you.

Be Organized With Your Planning

One way to make wedding planning a whole lot less stressful is to be organized. Give yourself plenty of internal deadlines and make a spreadsheet so you can see exactly what you’ve done, what you’ve paid for, and what you still need to organize. Speak to all your vendors as early as possible, from a wholesale diamonds seller to figure out your rings to a DJ who will enable you and your family and friends to dance the night away.

Take A Vacation

Finally, it’s important to relish spending time together. Go on date nights at least once a week where you don’t talk about wedding planning at all, and take a vacation together once or twice. It doesn’t have to be expensive – just a weekend away during which you can turn your phones off, relax, and enjoy being together.
