One Minute Guide To Wedding Invitation Wording

Writing a wedding invitation used to follow a very formal format, but now days it is more of a relaxed process. This having been said, there are still guidelines to follow for writing well received invites for your potential guests. The steps can be broken down into ten areas that will take you no more than a minute of your time to review and you will be on your way to organizing your invites with proper wedding invitation wording.
Step One : Addressing the invite
The people inviting the guests should always be the ones who are paying for the event. More traditionally it is the bride’s parents, but now days it can be the bride and groom or the groom’s parents. Either way, you will write “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” or “John Smith and Judy Hall” at the top of the page. If more than one couple is paying for the wedding, the correct wedding invitation wording would be:
Mr and Mrs James SmithTogether withMr and Mrs Malcolm Hall

Conduct Your Own Wedding Rehearsal

One thing that can substantially raise the fee charged by your wedding officiant is the need to have him or her present at your rehearsal. This is a justifiable expense, for oftentimes the officiant is giving up the chance to perform another wedding during the time that he or she is conducting your rehearsal. It is often an expense that the bride and groom don’t need to incur however, for it’s pretty easy to facilitate a rehearsal without having your officiant in attendance.
Running your own wedding rehearsal may seem a daunting task, especially if you don’t think you are the “manager” type. However, there are some simple steps you can do to make it a breeze. First of all, it is assumed that you have worked with your officiant and have received a written script of your ceremony. (If you haven’t, then you don’t know what is going to be said on the most important day of your life, so I recommend you find another officiant fast!) So, armed with your trusty wedding script, follow the steps below and you’ll have a practice session that runs smoothly (and get everyone to the rehearsal dinner in less than 45 minutes)!
If you are having your ceremony at the same site as your reception, then the site might provide you with a coordinator to run your rehearsal at no additional charge. These folks are invaluable-they know their venue and how things flow smoothly. Rely on them-they might even run the rehearsal for you if you give them the script.
It’s better for you to turn the management of the rehearsal over to a friend or relative who is, quite frankly, just a tad bossy. Choose someone who is assertive enough to get folks to pay attention, but not so overbearing as to be off-putting to your wedding party members……..continue

Wedding Stationery

Planning a wedding is not something to take lightly and aside from the location, that fantastic dress you need to track down and your guest list, perhaps the most important element is your wedding stationery. Your wedding stationery is not only your chance to make a first impression on your guests, it is also the keepsake that is most often saved by guests to remember your special occasion. Below are some tips to help you when putting together your wedding stationery set.
Things To Include In Your Wedding Stationery Set
• Wedding Announcements/Save the Date Cards – Sending out a wedding announcement letting your guests know of your wedding date and location is the first step in getting an idea of how many guests will be attending (Be sure to include an RSVP card with return envelope and postage). Though you want your wedding stationery to appear as part of a set, it is sometimes a good idea to avoid expensive decoration on these initial mailings. Things like envelope liners and seals can usually be reserved for your wedding invitations. This is a good way to reduce costs on your wedding stationery overall.
• The Wedding Invitation – Being the center of your wedding stationery, your invitations is where you will likely want to spend the bulk of your wedding stationery budget and pay close attention to detail. Wedding invitations are your chance to let your guests know how formal (or informal) your event will be and are an important element in setting the overall tone for your entire wedding. As mentioned above this is also the thing most guests will save in order to remember your ceremony so take time to make sure you’re making the impression that you want. Envelope liners, envelope seals, ribbon, floral accents and multi-layered designs are a few things to consider.

The Pros And Cons Of Having A Small Wedding

But putting your dreams into reality could sometimes pose some problems and you end up with the next best thing. If you won’t settle for the next best thing then you might want to choose having a small yet divine wedding.

The important thing is that you’re sharing the most important day of your life to the persons that are also dear to you. Just have the people who really matter. Small weddings could be practical because you’ll save a lot of money. I know that most people are willing to spend money just to have that perfect wedding…..

Bridesmaids Bouquets- adding an effect

Alternating colors of bridesmaids bouquets, using your wedding color scheme. If your wedding colors are brown and ivory, your 1st bridesmaid to walk down the aisle will carry a brown bouquet. Your next bridesmaid will carry a ivory bouquet, and of course you can have brown accents in the ivory bridesmaid bouquet. You can also have your bridesmaids carry shades of brown bouquets. Example: Shades of brown, tan, amber, apricot, light brown, dark brown, and so on. 1st bridesmaid would carry a dark brown bridal bouquet, 2nd bridesmaid would carry light brown, 3rd might carry amber bouquet. You can also use this color scheme for your table centerpieces, or table linens. Your bridal bouquet can be a solid color, which some brides prefer for their bridal pictures, and use a different bouquet, containing all colors in their wedding color scheme for the wedding ceremony and reception.

Wedding Cake Tip

Grocery store bakeries, they are cheaper if you need to save money. If you know someone that does cake decorating, you can have them cut and assemble your wedding cake for a small fee. They will usually have the cake stands if they are into cake decorating. Another good tip is using the floating cake stands, because it gives the illusion of a large fancy wedding cake. If you choose a grocery store bakery, you can add artificial or fresh
flowers to your wedding cake. As a cake decorator myself, I would trust wal-mart, or super 1 foods,  I’ve ordered my kids birthday cakes from there and couldn’t complain. What you can do is also use some of the cakes ordered as satellite cakes, which are cakes you put around the main wedding cake. 10 or 12 inch. You can also have a candy or dessert buffet, and a smaller wedding cake. Hope this helps all my princess brides!!!

How to Find the Right Wedding Videographer

Wedding videography is a skill and an art. It’s an imperative part of a wedding as it is meant to capture the feelings and emotions of your special day. Here are some things to look for in a professional videographer.


Make sure the wedding videographer fits your personality and style. There are many videographers out there and they all have their own style. As you watch sample videos on websites or demos, check to see if the photographer is versatile. If the videographer always does the same style of wedding video, they aren’t adjusting to the bride and grooms personalities. A good videographer will get to know the bride and groom before doing their wedding……..

Wedding Hair Style Tips: Choose Your Wedding Day Hairstyle Carefully

Women like to look glamorous, elegant and sexy on their wedding day so they usually take the time to choose an extravagant dress, stunning shoes and make up, and then there is the hair style. Whoa boy! Women usually have a stylist visit them when they are getting ready for the wedding, which costs a fortune, or they visit the parlour early in the morning before their wedding to get their chosen hair style done.
A woman’s hair may be her crowning glory, but getting a new ‘do’ just before a big event in your life can be a major mistake. Plan ahead with any chemical treatments – bleaching, colouring, streaking, perming or straightening – and if you’re considering any radical changes in length or style do it at least six to eight weeks before the big event, this way it gives you and your hair time to adjust together and….
