Choosing Wedding Music

August 07, 2011 0 Comments Wedding General by Administrator

The day you have been dreaming about has almost arrived and you must have certainly made most arrangements already such as booking a venue for the wedding as well as a caterer and also sending out the wedding invites. Once you have finished these arrangements you have to start thinking about the music that you wish to be played during your wedding. Wedding music is a very important thing because it is instrumental in setting the tone for the event.

There are many factors that you have to consider when you choose your wedding music. For starters, the venue of the wedding has a big hand in deciding the kind of music you will play. If your wedding is in a place of worship then you naturally have to choose your music accordingly. Luckily there is a precedent for this sort of event and you can make your choice accordingly. In fact, most religious places have clear cut guidelines for the kind of music to be played during the wedding ceremony and they do not appreciate any deviation. Even if they permit a pop number to be played it will have to be after the ceremony is over because the ceremony is a religious event, after all. You will be permitted to play pop music as long as it is about love or marriage in a positive light.

August 04, 2011 0 Comments Wedding ettiquette by Administrator

The most exciting day of your life is finally approaching and you have a large number of wedding invites to send out. You will certainly have spent a lot of time thinking about whom to invite and who all you can safely leave out without ruffling too many feathers. This is unfortunately something that you simply have to do because you cannot be expected to invite every person you know. The question that you might need an answer for is whether you are obligated to invite your co-workers and specifically your boss to your wedding. This applies to you as well as to your future spouse. This is an important question and the answer varies from case to case and the only person who can decide this is you.

Making arrangements for your wedding is quite an expensive exercise because there are a great many things that you have to organize. The amount of money you spend on catering food and drinks for your guests is quite a substantial amount and varies according to the menu as well as the number of people you have invited. You definitely need to have a control on the number of people you send your wedding invites to. Apart from the cost of inviting people, your venue might have limitations regarding the number of people it can accommodate and you will just have to prune your wedding invites list to close friends and family.

August 02, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Photography by Administrator

There is a lot of work to be done in order to make a wedding the perfect celebration of friends and family. When you are planning the timelines for your wedding you have to ensure that you do not miss out one important event which is the pre-wedding photo shoot. It is absolutely essential that you make the time for this for a variety of reasons, one of them being that it captures the two of you in a very informal light. In addition, this is the perfect opportunity for you to take a well needed break from the stress of making arrangements for wedding invites, catering and the like.

A pre-wedding shoot is an opportunity to tell your love story in photographs in a very artistic manner. You undoubtedly have a lot of photographs of the two of you together but they don’t always show you both in a flattering light because they are usually taken without predetermination or a good camera. You need to have a set of photos that are casual yet beautiful and which give some kind of information about how your love blossomed to the point of marriage.

How to Choose a Wedding Photographer

July 31, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Photography by Administrator

A wedding photographer has a very important role to play on your big day because this is the person who will create a piece of art that immortalizes your ceremony. It might be very tempting to hand a friend or relative a camera and request them to take pictures of the wedding but the results you get will tell you that you have made a mistake. If you are taking the trouble to choreograph your wedding with care, starting from well designed wedding invites to exquisite party favours, you should budget in the cost of an excellent photographer as well. A talented photographer will be able to create a photographic record of your wonderful ceremony that will enable you to revisit it whenever you require.

There is more to wedding photography than just pointing a camera at something and taking random photographs. A talented photographer should be able to take extremely beautiful pictures that show you and the others in the wedding in the best light possible. Everybody attending the wedding has taken great pains to dress in a particular manner and the camera needs to record this for posterity. In addition, there are many nuances and emotional moments of the wedding that have to be captured as photographic images for you to enjoy later. This is something that an ordinary photographer will not be able to do.

Wedding Cars – Traditional Cars Vs Modern Cars

July 29, 2011 0 Comments Wedding cars by Administrator

Your dream wedding becomes reality when you bring together all the different details that make it truly special. It is true that you have to select your wedding invites with as much care as you do the venue or the food you will serve. However, the cars that you use during the wedding ceremony are as important as any other aspect of the arrangements you have to make. In fact, the wrong choice of car can really spoil your impression of that day. The importance of cars at a wedding is widely accepted which is why there are so many interesting options for you to choose from.

A perfect wedding is a well choreographed event in which every component, from the wedding invites to the car that the couple drives away in are equally important. You should therefore spend some time to pick out the perfect cars that you will use during the event. You will need a few cars for the wedding because the bride and groom arrive in style but separately and you will then drive away together after the ceremony.

Should “Thank You” Cards Be Personalised And Handwritten?

July 24, 2011 0 Comments Wedding ettiquette by Administrator

Are you spending a lot of time and effort in order to ensure that your wedding day goes off exactly as you always dreamt it? Make sure that you spare some thought to the subject of Thank You cards as well. It is important for you to remember that the guidelines concerning the subject of wedding Thank You cards are as strict as those that are concerned with wedding invites. It is expected that the newlyweds take time off their busy schedule in order to thank the people who took the trouble to come to their wedding bearing gifts.

You have to do your best when sending out Thank You cards after your wedding because they reflect on you as much as your carefully worded wedding invites do. Wedding etiquette determines the timeframe within which you have to send the Thank You cards out in addition to what you have to write in them. Just as you cannot take more than 3 months at the very maximum to send these cards out you cannot send out mass created cards.

Does the groom pay for the groomsmen outfits?

July 22, 2011 0 Comments Wedding General by Administrator

Weddings require a lot of planning and organizing so that everything goes off without a hitch. The smallest details, from the wedding invites to the colour of flowers you use, have to be looked into in order to ensure that your wedding is everything you always dreamed it to be. The outfits that every member of the wedding party wears should also be selected with care because they add to the beauty and style of the event. The groomsmen’s outfits are as important as the dresses worn by the bridesmaids because the groomsmen will have a very vital role to play in the wedding.

The question that confuses a lot of people is whether the groom has to pay for the outfits worn by the groomsmen. Unfortunately there is no clarity on this subject. Some people believe that the groom has to pay for the suits worn by his groomsmen whereas others are of the opinion that the groomsmen are obligated to buy their own clothes for the wedding. The thought behind this is that the groomsmen will find plenty of other occasions to wear a suit even if they have to pay a hefty sum for it.

Always Send Out Thank You Cards After Your Wedding

July 19, 2011 0 Comments Wedding cars by Administrator

Have you been working a lot in order to get all the details of your wedding just right? Balancing your wedding arrangements with demands of work and family life can be a very arduous task. Two things that keeps you going are the wedding itself when you will be a princess for a day and the honeymoon that follows it immediately. After all, who wouldn’t love the idea of disappearing to an exotic location for a couple of weeks with the person they love? However, there is still one thing that has to be done because your wedding related work is not completed till you send out Thank You cards.

Sending out Thank You cards is the accepted practice after weddings and not doing so is a very serious breach of etiquette. Failing to thank people for spending their time and hard earned money to buy you a gift can show in a very unfavourable light and you should avoid this at any cost. Admittedly, the task is a big one if you have received a lot of gifts but you still have to do so and that too within an accepted time limit. The accepted practice is that Thank You cards are to be sent within 3 months of the wedding and no later. The people who made you the gifts also understand that you have gone off on a honeymoon and they will not be expecting the cards immediately after the wedding.
