The Best Wedding Reception Music
Posted under Wedding Reception
For many wedding receptions these days, there is usually dancing involved. So in order to have dancing, you'll want to choose your wedding reception music and someone to play the music for you. When you are selecting your wedding reception music, you'll want to keep three types of music in mind: the music for the special dances, the music to be played during dinner, the after dinner music, and the end of night music. Special dances music First thing that you will want to do is to sit down as a couple and figure out what song you'll dance to as husband and wife. This could be a song that has special meaning for the two of you, or it just could be a song that you like. Some of the other special dances are father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, and bridal party dance. Dinner Music This is normally when the wedding reception music is more low key and the disc jockey will play ballads and soft music.

Picking Out A Wedding Photographer
Posted under Wedding Planning
Something that you will want to do, without a doubt, is to hire a wedding photographer so that you can always have something to look at years down the road and use to remember your wedding day. There are different pictures that the wedding photographer will take: before the wedding, during the wedding, after the wedding, during the reception. Before the wedding Most of the wedding photographers will go to the home of the bride to get pictures of her and her bridesmaids prior to the wedding, of her with her family, and of course, pictures of her by herself. These pictures are both taken inside and out, and if you have pictures that you want to be taken you can talk to your wedding photographer about it. During the wedding There's no doubt that you will want to have pictures of the event itself, so your wedding photographer will, of course, take pictures during the ceremony. There are moments during the ceremony that just can't be replicated. After the wedding Now is the ti ...continue »

Posted under Wedding Attire
When you are choosing a wedding gown, you want to wear something that accentuates your best features and reflects your style. It's easy to look at a wedding gown that someone else is wearing say, ”Oh, that's beautiful - I want to wear something just like that.” But what looks good on someone else might not be right for you. There are several things to consider when you are looking at wedding gowns. You want to look gorgeous on your special day, but you also want to be comfortable, so think about these areas when you are picking out a wedding gown. Time of year One thing you want to think about is the time of year that you are getting married. It's easy to think about the fact that you are only going to be going from your limosine to the church, and from the church back to the limosine, but there are also pictures that may be taken outside. If you get married in the wintertime you don't want to be wearing a sleeveless wedding gown that will need to be covered over when you are ou ...continue »
Wedding Flower Selection Advice
Posted under Wedding Ideas
Something that will be a big part of your day will be the wedding flowers. There will be wedding flowers in the church, the bouquets that the bride and her bridesmaids are holding, wedding flowers in the corsages for the mothers and grandmothers, and flowers for the men to wear as their boutonniere, as well as flowers in the church and in the reception hall. A common mistake that people make when choosing their wedding flowers is that they choose flowers that are overly fragrant. Roses may look pretty, but if you have someone that is overly sensitive to overwhelming scents, you could find yourself listening to someone sneeze all through your ceremony. If you are someone that is prone to allergies, or you know that someone in your wedding party is, you might want to research other flowers online or discuss that with your florist to see what they recommend. For the bridal bouquet, a lot of brides go with just white, but depending on what your dress looks like it might blend right i ...continue »
