Advice For Beautiful And Economic Wedding Flowers By John Souter

View More: http://coppolaphotography.pass.us/sarah-and-gary-social-media


Couples focus on varying things in their weddings. Some will spend an exorbitant amount of money on flowers while others want to spend it on their invitations…….Still more like to focus on crafting a certain theme or ambiance. The type and amount of flowers you use depends on what is most important to you.


There are other things you’ll want to think about to help you choose how much or how little you should invest. Do a site inspection with your florist for your ceremony and reception site. Keep in mind that you spend the most time at your reception site (unless they’re one and the same) so you should not invest an extravagant amount of money on the flowers for the ceremony. Unless, of course, you bring those arrangements and decorate the reception site as well. If the setting for your ceremony is a lush area with naturally beautiful flowers and foliage, you might just want to line the aisle with rose petals and decorate a few chairs. If your ceremony is indoors and very classy, flowers can dress it up and add some color.


The types of decorations, favors and centerpieces you choose can vary from simple to elaborate or sometimes none at all. Like many aspects in a wedding, there is no right or wrong way to decorate. Frequently, the more creative you are, the more enthusiastic you become about this part of your wedding planning. If you run out of ideas, wedding expos, magazines and online wedding sites are terrific for recommendations. When all else fails, keep it simple! You can either create your own favors and centerpieces, pay someone to do it for you or buy them pre-made.


Here are some tips to get you started:


1. Get a written estimate from your florist of the overall expense, along with payment dates and amounts.


2. If you’re looking for ways to reduce costs, concentrate your wedding funds where they will get the most attention (head table, etc.).


3. Lining the aisle with loose flowers is an economic method to add color and charm to the ceremony site. Plumeria, orchids and rose petals are all affordable options.


4. Have your florist use ribbons and other classy materials to add style and help lower the cost of flowers.


5. Be aware of busy flower seasons like proms and heavy wedding seasons. Make sure that your preferred flowers are in season.


6. Make sure your flowers arrive before any pictures are taken.


7. If you’re trying to reduce costs, think simple. The fancier the flowers and designs, the more you’re going to pay.


8. Ensure that the florist packed straight pins for the men’s boutonnières.


9. Think about silk flowers as a cost-effective alternative to regular flowers.


10. Use the arrangements and other pieces from the ceremony site for decor at the reception site.


11. Check out your your florist well. Do they have photos of previous weddings they’ve decorated? Do they have wedding bouquets or arrangements in the store that you could examine? Is the florist able to make pieces that will fit in the style and budget of your wedding? Is there an extra cost for on-site setup?

Time for Photography by Bob Hennessy

bb20bf_609fb12412e34847a14d0e50563c4102


Your wedding day is 24 hours or 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds short. Why short? Because it is divided by a million things to accomplish!


By now you should know them by heart but if not you soon will. That morning you’ll be busy with things like hair, makeup, getting dressed, eating. That’s right. Don’t forget eating and photography at the house. These and many, many other items are all part of the time allotment puzzle.


Some photographic styles have developed purely to ease the tension associated with “the day”. Candid or photojournalistic styles don’t require stopping the action or taking away minutes you’d prefer devoting to other activities. More traditional or stylistic choices may require additional time for set up, lighting requirements etc. but can be creatively scheduled throughout the day or even at a later date. The final outcome should really be determined by your choice of photographic coverage. Whether your preference is for one or the other or a mix of both will determine the amount of time you will need to set aside for your photographer.


Also don’t forget your family and their needs. Yes it’s your day but if you want your day to truly be a success you’ve got to consider others as well. What are they’re expectations? Are you willing to help fulfill their dreams as well as your own or not. By the way, who will be paying for the event is an important consideration here, but not the only determining factor.


So with this in mind you begin to understand that a certain portion of your 1,440 minutes will be devoted to professional photography. It is very important that you discuss the entire day with your photographer to determine what portion of your day you will devote to their efforts. They will guide you through a number of questions to determine what your expectations are as well as your families. From this they will be able to set a plan that works for you and them.


A word of caution though, when minutes are shifted from one service to another your expectations should shift as well. If your hair and makeup run late or your wedding party is un co-operative or the wedding service is longer than expected or the limo gets stuck in traffic or… Remember you only have 86,400 seconds at your disposal. Use them wisely!


Wishing you the Best!

6 Unique Guest Book Ideas



IMG_0031wtmk


Here’s 6 truly unique Guestbook ideas…..

Vintage Atlas – Have your guests sign the pages of a vintage road atlas, highlighting the cities they are traveling from or destinations they know the couple is interested in exploring.  Great idea for brides and grooms that have either a case of wanderlust or an appreciation of vintage books.

Re-Use Wine Bottles – Whether you “message in a bottle” your guest book by reusing old bottles (below, left) or have your guests sign the labels of bottles to be opened in the future (below, right), this is a perfect idea for a vineyard wedding. Make sure to include metallic Sharpies if you want your guests to sign the actual bottle, so that the ink shows up on the dark glass.

Advice Coasters – It can never hurt to have a little helpful marital advice at the ready.  On your welcome table have a basket of blank coasters for guests to fill out with advice and funny memories. You’ll end up using these, especially during the first year as you are using your wine glasses and getting settled into your new digs together.

A Love Dictionary – Never met a game of Scrabble or a crossword puzzle that you couldn’t dominate? Then chances are that you live for your dictionary. Place colored felt-tip pins out with signage explaining that each guests should circle a word that describes the two of you, and then add a little note in the margin. The result will be the most beloved dictionary you will ever own.

Game Board – Who doesn’t love a good game night with the besties? If you regularly have these parties with your nearest and dearest, then it makes complete sense for you to use a game board (or Jenga blocks, or puzzle pieces–whatever you play) for your guest book. Each time you bring out Monopoly you’ll remember all the warm memories from your big day!

Date Night – How many newlywed spats begin with the question, “What do you want to do?”  Save yourself those woes, and draw an idea from a jar of ideas given to you by your wedding guests. You can DIY this little project on your own by using the printable template below.

Wedding Favor Ideas For Your Special Day.

IMG_1982wtmk

Wedding favors are the perfect way to show how you feel. Though your wedding guests will already know that you care about them, wedding favors give an additional touch of thoughtfulness. They don’t have to be a major item or an expensive one. Something small but meaningful as a memento of the day is all that is needed.

There are so many options to choose from in wedding favors. Only your imagination limits you. You can buy them already to give out, or you can make your own. It depends only on what you want to do and the time you have to devote to it.

If you plan to buy wedding favors, you can choose something that is meaningful to you and your groom or matches the theme of the wedding ceremony and reception. Personalizing them with your names and the date of the nuptials will make them all the more special.

One very good option for wedding favors is a small candle with a ribbon tied around it with a picture of you and your groom attached. A softly scented candle is a very good choice. The candles can be put in small organza bags tied with another ribbon.

If you would like to make your own wedding favors, there are many options. One is a mini album with pictures of you and the groom during your courtship. There are many ways these favors can be made. It all depends on your tastes which type you choose to make.

Another idea for making your own wedding favors is to make small scented soaps and present them in small elegant baskets with a ribbon bow on the handle. The soaps can be shaped like doves or flowers or whatever else you might prefer. This would be a favor much appreciated by your guests.

Finally, whatever wedding favors you decide to give to your guests, relax because if it is special enough for you to choose it, it will also be special to your guests. So let your heart be your guide when you are thinking of what to choose as the perfect wedding favor for your big day.
