    As the TV sensation Dancing With the Stars has become a hit in many living rooms across America, so have elaborate first dances at the wedding! The first dance can be anything from the salsa to a ballroom dance or even a mix of anything you would like! A couple of tips to keep in mind for your first dance is to start your dance lessons one month before the wedding and keep the routine to three minutes or less. An elaborate performance can look very unnatural and too rehearsed. You want it to look like you two dance like that all the time! Try Exquisite DJs for an amazing wedding day DJ! Photo…

    Christine
    30 Aug 2015 | 6:38 pm
    Our guest for this week’s Weekend Edition is Kimra Luna. Kimra & I first met last year thanks to Marie Forleo’s B-School program, and it was obviously from the start that we both share a passion for social media, marketing, and working with others on their online strategy. While Kimra seemed to come out of nowhere last year, the reality is that is not the case. It took a lot of hard work and hustle for her to get from where she was – literally on welfare – to where she is today, running her Freedom Hackers Mastermind Group (with over 15,000 members), her Be True…

We worry about if we are going to make $37,000 in the next 4 days. We compare how much traffic our website receives compared to a mega-site like Huffington Post. Every day I see more and more posts online that are driving us to feel this way, and it is crushing our morale. Not only that – it is keeping you so hyper-focused on getting everything right that it is paralyzing you from just getting going. Here is what I have to…

Storyteller, author, podcaster, marketing expert, speaker, photographer, champion of social good … the list of things that C.C. is known for is long. He is a truly a Renaissance man, and such an inspiration. We talk about the “new” medium of podcasting – which we both started doing in the early days of the medium in 2004 – 2005. C.C. was the person that helped me figure it all out…

    Besides being incredibly loving, welcoming, and supportive, my future MIL is a calligrapher, and as soon as we announced our engagement, she offered to address the invitations for us. Free calligraphy?!? Sign me up! Anything to avoid the headache of downloading fonts and convincing my printer to spit out envelopes seemed like a win-win. MIL Puff expressed concerns on more than one occasion that because her calligraphy is done by hand, I might dislike the lack of consistency. I did not. In fact, I loved it. I love all the hard work she put into it. I love that each envelope is its own piece of…
  • Dressing Two Bridesmaids, Part 1 of 2

    Miss Black Cat
    2 Sep 2015 | 9:07 am
    For the wedding I chose just two bridesmaids. One: my maid of honor slash best friend. The other: my fiancé’s teenage sister. This decision felt simple to me. I didn’t want a double-digit percentage of our wedding guests to be standing up there with us. But with just two bridesmaids there are a few things I couldn’t do quite as easily. So when picking the outfits for the ladies, they had to “match” in more ways than one. I couldn’t simply ignore anyone’s opinions about wedding attire. With only two sources of opinions, it’s not fair to ignore someone for the purpose of…

    Dear Friends, When I began this site in 2002, it was with the sole intent to share the DIY ideas and templates I had created and accumulated with a few brides and grooms I had met online. DIY weddings were a rarity in those days – at least in wedding media – with few resources available to creative, budget-conscious couples who wanted to be hands-on participants in their own weddings. Oh, how things have changed! 13 years after the launch of DIY Bride, it has exceeded my humble expectations. Those initial few couples have turned into millions of visitors. My creations have turned…

    1. Your Family and Friends May Have Strong Reactions To Your Wedding Weddings tend to bring out weird emotions and reactions in family, friends, internet strangers, and even yourself. Nut up, buttercup, and don’t be afraid to set healthy boundaries about why, how, and with whom you get married. 2. Your Budget Is Not A Source Of Shame or Pride. Create a celebration within your financial means, make well-thought-out decisions about your spending, and, for the love of all things holy, don’t get into debt for your wedding.

    The phrase “beach wedding” can stir up some cheesy connotations, but I daresay that people whose minds automatically go to Hawaiian shirts and stargazer lilies have never been to a coastal wedding in the South! From Rosemary Beach to the Outer Banks to St. Simon’s Island (where today’s gorgeous celebration was held), Southern brides certainly know how to turn a beach locale into a completely elegant place to tie the knot. Lindsey and Daniel chose St. Simon’s Island for their wedding because her small hometown wasn’t easy to travel to from New York or DC,…

    Bellaforte
    2 Sep 2015 | 8:45 am
    Thanks to Elena Arte for uploading this photo to our Flickr pool. Two years ago, I became a widow after my husband committed suicide. My late husband and I had a Justice of the Peace ceremony while I was pregnant, and we were planning the wedding we intended to have, once our son was old enough to remember it and be involved. Today, I'm planning a wedding with my high school sweetheart, who I reunited with a little over a year ago. When thoughts of my two weddings overlap, it becomes cause for grief, not joy. I get asked a million painful, well-meaning questions: "Is your fiancé…

Super chic, super modern, effortlessly casual — it's what I always hope I look like walking down the street but never ever will. Not even if I had Shannon's absolutely killer gold high heels. The couple took to the countryside for some rural shots in a borrowed vintage Dodge, even catching some awesome background with the historic Rock Island commuter train.

Naked cakes have been fluctuating in popularity for a long time, especially in the UK and now over here in the US, and we are still loving them. If you're one of those frosting haters (blasphemy!), you're probably loving them, too. Here's a little homage to the naughtiest of wedding confectionaries: the naked cake.

    Pink and coral were the motifs at Bruno and Julia’s wedding. The wedding was during autumn, but they decided to stray away from the usual fall colors and went with bright and fun colors. The photos in the gallery below are of the decors, accessories they used and of Bruno and Julia’s portraits. I love the picture that was taken in the courtyard — very romantic and elegant in my opinion.

    Classic Nautical Wedding We’ve got a treat for our lakeshore lovers today: a nautical wedding at The Milwaukee Yacht Club! Jamie and Ilya’s outdoor wedding was intimate and on the water–as they have a love for sailing. Jamie has a sailing background, so when Ilya took her sailing on a date, well, the rest was history! The Yacht Club overlooks the Milwaukee Harbor so guests were treated to the lovely marina and the city skyline at the same time. We love their classy color scheme and their fun nautical wedding décor and maritime inspiration. Enjoy Jamie and Ilya’s…

    Lets face it, packing for anything can be a stressful and daunting undertaking.  Couple that with packing for your honeymoon...*insert physical meltdown here*.  You are checking the weather to know exactly what types of clothes to pack, you always over pack so that means that you run into weight restrictions when flying specific airlines.  Sound familiar?

    Been meaning to blog about this one for a while! I was so pleased to pick up the most recent issue of Portland Bride and Groom magazine to find one of our weddings from last summer featured. Photos courtesy Stark Photography Erica and Rohan planned a traditional church ceremony at First Presbyterian Church, followed by a surprise Sri Lankan (Sinhalese) ceremony, called a poruwa, at their reception location of Castaway.

    You're engaged, you've got the venue and the date, and are so excited to get going on planning! Yet, you're stuck on what the wedding will actually look like. Envisioning the final event means you need to pick invitations, table linens, flowers, lighting, and all the assorted goodies that go with your big party. And of course you've got to start with a color or two (or a few!) that hopefully go together. "But I like everything!" you say. Or maybe, "Our site has this weird carpet and I'm not sure what goes with it." Or possibly, "I don't…

    Photo by Ewen Roberts Although the bulk of outdoor Oregon weddings have not yet begun, winter lovebirds are still heading out to beachy climates to get married. The question of how to pack your wedding gown comes up a lot! Always check with your airline first for specific packing restrictions.  Here are some tips from one of our gown specialists:  "You will not be able to use the standard length bridal gown bag as carry on luggage. It is too long, and too easily torn. Place your gown inside an FAA-approved garment bag instead. For instance, US Airways states that wedding gowns must be…

    Last Monday in Tagaytay. When I stepped out of the van that morning for Jon and Rica’s wedding, the fog was so thick, I could barely see two meters ahead of me. But here’s a little secret: I loved it. Jeff and I will always wish for sunshine, but if it doesn’t happen, we shrug it off and go with it. The way we see it, there’s no point wasting time lamenting over the weather and worrying our couples more. What matters is finding the beauty in what is right there in front of you. It’s part of the story now, and it changes it into something that’s yours and…

    4 Aug 2015 | 10:27 am
    These two were set to be married August 2 last year and we were booked to join them since 2013, but Monica had to undergo surgery and the wedding had to be postponed by a year. In a way — and I don’t think she knows this — she saved me from myself. At that exact same time, I was alternately weeping or in a stupor. It was merely days after I broke my leg on a freak accident at a shoot on a deserted island, and also had surgery of my own. (All good now, no worries!) I had post-traumatic stress and was unable to talk to anyone but Jeff, but when I read her email, it was like…

    We first met Anton and Ana over Skype, as they were planning their Tagaytay wedding all the way from New York. I remember being smitten with Ana immediately, because really, that smile. I don’t even need to say more. Watching people and getting a feel for them and what makes them tick is second nature to me and Jeff now, but Anton was a little difficult to read. He was quiet the entire time, and cooking. I would later find out on the day of the wedding that he’s a chef. Lovely how they were able to build that into the wedding with some well thought out details. I wasn’t able…

    “Tell me a story.” During our freshman year in college, we’d often find ourselves lying down on his bedroom floor, listening to his mix tapes. I’d ask him to tell me stories of his childhood, of his life before me, of random things that happened to him that day. Since then, he’s been telling me stories. At some point over the years, he would tell me that I know all his stories already, that I’ve heard them all before, but I don’t care. He’s the best storyteller I know. It feels the same, and his voice soothes me all the same. I would fall asleep…

    Jeff and I remember Carlo and Patricia’s wedding as the elegant intimate wedding with hundreds of guests. I know that sounds strange, using the word “intimate” for a large wedding, but going through the photos, these were people who genuinely loved them and celebrated with them. So maybe intimate has nothing to do with the number, but with how much you are loved by the people around you, and they just happen to have many who do. I adore Patricia. I light up every time I see her. She told me about her work while we were in her bridal car outside the church, and she spoke…

    After taking a moment spending some time reading Neil Young‘s Facebook Post about his PONO Music player & service along with many of the comments from the fans & haters, I have come up with this thought. Which I truly believe crosses over to ALL creative industries and business ventures. Definitely some interesting points numerous people have shared, but to boil it down to the simplest form; a Lamborghini vs Toyota Corolla. While both essentially do the same, get you from point a to point b, both vehicles deliver COMPLETELY DIFFERENT experiences. And if you think both drive the…

    Let's be real: Gold is pretty awesome. And by awesome I mean elegant, sophisticated, and all kinds of chic. It's got glitz and glamour written all over it.

    Yet another great day for a wedding – this time in Niagara Falls. The ceremony took place at the quaint Queenston United Church, which dates back to 1786. From there we headed to closeby Queenston Heights Park, a lovely spot for pix. Then we headed to the Falls for a few shots among the long-weekend throng, where we were lucky enough to catch a rainbow. From there it was a hop, skip and a jump to the Edgewaters Restaurent, which overlooks the Falls – sweet location. And when night fell the Fall’s lights went on, and the fireworks roared at 10pm. As you can see, I love…

    After 13 years of wedding photography somehow I had never shot a wedding at Blue Mountain – until yesterday. Yes, it was crazy hot for the second Saturday in a row but when the Bride and Groom are such troopers it ends up being good times all around – with a couple of shirt changes for good measure. The ladies got ready at the Mosaic Boutique Suites Hotel. From there we took a shuttle to the top of the mountain for the ceremony – what a view.  One minute it was cooking hot, the next it rained for 10 minutes at the tail end of the ceremony, which had half the guests…

    I’m taking a timeout from wedding planning on September 12th. That day, myself and a huge group of my family members (siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews) will be partaking in the Boston Heart Walk organized by the American Heart Association. Last year I participated, but my team was much smaller: it was just me and one of my nieces and we had just started to fund raise for it about a week ahead of time. This year, I set up our team in January and people have been jumping on board ever since. We’re slowly but surely raising some funds for the cause all in memory of my late brother…

    Disposable cameras and Instagram are great, but not everyone wants the waste of a plastic camera body or the publicity of #YourWeddingHashtag. And sometimes waiting for the turnaround from your photog can be excruciating. Let’s be real, it’s pretty rad to cuddle up with your new spouse (OMG!) tired, a little tipsy and totally on a euphoric high and scroll through all of the amazingness you just experienced. We often hear the wedding day goes by in a blur, and it’s easy to miss out on those funtimez. Enter: Ceremony app. Free to download for the reg version or a measly $4.99…

    After trying on the gray-toned dress at David’s, I became obsessed with finding other gray dresses! I started searching Pinterest and Google, screen-shotting and pinning pictures left and right. In my search, gray led to blue. I was hooked. Of course, everything I was finding was a one-of-a-kind or couture, high-end — aka pricey and hard to find. I thought it would be good to look at shops near me, and narrow it to the designers they carry. There is a cool boutique bridal shop that opened last year in my area called True North Bridal Studio. They specialize in unique, special…

    I’m a huge fan of fall weddings. The air is a little crisper and longer length dresses are a little more en vogue as a result. Plus jewel tones and autumn affairs go together like cake and frosting, and I’m not complaining. In fact, this fall I’m coordinating a friend’s wedding and she’s rocking a gorgeous rose gold sequin gown while her bridesmaids will be donning their own floor-length jewel tone frocks. My heart is aflutter with anticipation (as yours should be, because you bet your butt I’mma be posting that stunnah all up in this bish). As luck would…

    Boston in the summer is a wonderful time for a wedding! We love working with Janie Haas Events, and we were thrilled to join them at the InterContinental Hotel Boston for Jill and Ben’s wedding. Their classic Jewish wedding had a refined, glamorous feel, while maintaining high energy throughout the evening.

    Katherine and Andrew knew they wanted a sophisticated and elegant black tie wedding from the day they got engaged. They chose the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the Back Bay for their summer wedding. Design, decor and coordination of Katherine and Andrew’s vision was brought to fruition by the team at Hopple Popple, Inc and was even more beautiful than they had envisioned. Echoed in the dance floor, coordinated yet unique bridesmaids dresses, and the floral design by Winston Flowers (with regal pops of red), a color palette of black and white paired nicely with the black tie celebration.

We love this gorgeous venue and were more than happy to drive out to Castle Hill once again to capture this wonderful celebration.

She’s an aristocratic clown :) Soon after, somewhere between the sleepless nights, cleaning the poop, and new puppy classes, we realized this year was about to become even bigger for us :) So we camped, hiked, road…

Be careful to not go overboard with the glue because you don’t want it oozing out all over. You can make it neat with straight lines or messy like a bird’s nest. It is up to you. Then play around with the placement of the moss before you…

    I absolutely love elopements because in all honestly, whats more romantic than jetting off to a foreign country with your favourite people to make one of the most important commitments of your life? For Jordi, Bego and their son Nolan, it was the perfect option for them. With a mutual love for Scotland, it was a quick decision to elope there but Jordi’s adoration for dolphins meant that the location had to be the Isle of Skye. Loving this today. We were together for 5 years and we had our son, Nolan. We met at work and one of the first interests we shared is our love for Scotland. I…

    The Irish summer has been really quite amazing.

BBQs were sold out and garden parties were taking place in homes all around the country. With the fine weather, I took to trying out some of my favourite pinned salads and on one of the evenings, we had a little summer soiree in our own garden, so the summer cocktail recipes came out.

The rest is history.” The couple continued their relationship long distance for 15 years before tying the knot on March 28,…

  • Marceline Bridal Style: Punk Rock Vampire Queen

    Cassandra
    2 Sep 2015 | 2:15 pm
    For an edgy and cool vampire queen try a rock chic leather jacket and boots to contrast the femininity of white wedding dress, or add a little more vamp with a red dress. Unlike traditional vampires, Marceline can sustain herself on “shades of red” rather than being limited to surviving on blood. For her bouquet, I chose the Sentimental Rose which seemingly has the appearance of the color red being partially sucked out. Combine Sentimentals with white and red roses to get the full vampiric effect.  Photo Credits: Wedding Dress: Vera Wang| Guitar Clutch: Judith Leiber | Boots:…

    18 Aug 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Take a look at this three-tiered Rorschach test wedding cake by Rebekah Naomi Cake Design located in Montclair, Virginia.  The creative cake is inspired by the The Rorschach test or inkblot test, a psychological exam in which subjects’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed. Of course I think of Rorschach from the graphic novel Watchmen when I look at this cake. “I’ve always been somewhat fascinated with the Ink Blot test…I don’t know what that says about me as a person…haha. The tests are so visually striking that I thought it would make a great…

    27 Aug 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Sure, you could just go with plain, rented beverage glasses for your guests’ drinks and be done with it, but why not add an entertaining twist by relating the favor to the drinks? The glass itself, how you decorate it, what you put in it, or what you serve with the drink can all create a bit of joy for your guests. A big thank you to Michelle of Choice Promotional Products, who suggested some of these ideas as well as sponsored the post. 1. Personalized drink glasses can be all kinds are fun.

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:57 am
    The rustic-country wedding has been around for awhile and is here to stay (yay!), but there is an up-and-coming twist to this theme–elegance (think rustic chic with a drop or two more spiff). While, certainly, the setting goes a long way in creating the rustic aspect, details can be critical to the overall look as well. With that in mind, scroll down for my top picks for rustic elegance, all of which are neutral so will go with any wedding color!

  • Veil Lengths and Styles Demystified

    Bobette Kyle
    14 Jul 2015 | 9:57 am
    To the uninitiated, choosing a veil seems rather straightforward. We soon learn, however, that the veil can be one of the hardest decisions. Short or long? How short? How long? How many tiers? What shape? Blusher or not? Edging or not? If so, what kind? What color? Embellishments? Shimmer? The choices seem endless. Veil length is one of the most important factors in how a veil looks, so it’s best to begin there. (Click/tap on each veil name in the text below to see examples to browse or buy.)

    Typically, the bride and bridesmaids’ jewelry ensembles are made up of a necklace and earrings, but they can also include brooches and bracelets or cuffs, depending on the formality of the wedding, how elaborate the dresses are, and the bride’s preferences. In any case, there are several ways to match the cost to your budget. Bride’s Jewelry 1. Make the jewelry “something borrowed.” One way to slash bridal jewelry from the budget is to borrow it.

    This blog has been a little quiet of late because we’ve been overseas working non-stop to take The Pop-Up Wedding Co. to the USA! Over a year ago Britt and I dreamed up this little concept where a couple could have a fancy elopement, and share the expenses of a stylish, professional, awesome elopement with some other couples but without compromising the awesomeness of the day and without taking away from the real and special moment that is their wedding ceremony.

    Justice Anthony Kennedy,authored the US Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage. He closed his ruling and opinion with one of the most beautiful passages you’ll likely read in a court case. I totally teared up, and it’s a passage I’ll be incorporating into many marriage ceremonies.   No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. Marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. In…

I often think about wedding vows and underwear being fairly similar. I don’t exchange underwear with other people, let alone strangers, and I wouldn’t exchange other people’s wedding vows. When you Google example or sample wedding vows you’re doing just that. Instead, you could prepare some of your own wedding vows and I’d love to help you do it! My friends at White…

    If there's an issue so critical such as whether a woman will take her husband's last name after marriage, it's holding onto the last name or making a decision to drop it off after divorce. It's an issue that most divorced folks talk about especially if the man keeps on complaining that the ex-wife has stuck to the name and has refused to drop it off even after remarrying. Chances are that the two divorcees might not be seeing eye to eye and apart from discussing their kids, if any; communication is minimized across the board.

    Cassandra
    1 Sep 2015 | 8:49 pm
    For any pre-wedding event, the invitation sets the tone. You could say it gets the party started. An invitation not only informs guests about the event, but it gets them excited for it. And if there’s one pre-wedding party to get excited about, it’s the bachelorette party. You could send out a tried and true paper invitation or even save a couple of trees and email the girls the info, but why stop there when there are so many creative ways to say, “Last fling before the ring!” Here are five unique bachelorette party invitations to inspire you. 1.

    Monogrammed Hats and photo via Marley Lilly   There are tons of bachelorette party ideas to choose from, but with summer around the corner, I’m thinking a beach bachelorette party sounds quite nice. Sand between the toes, cool ocean water, blue skies and palm trees…and of course all the girls having an amazing time getting sun kissed and sipping coconut water! Assuming you have the basics covered, like whether the beach is local or destination and how long the party will go on, let’s talk about how you can get the most out of a bachelorette party on the beach.

    Naomi Kent via Spell Designs   Music + friends + outdoor fun = a festival-inspired bachelorette party! I can’t get enough of the boho, free spirited vibe, and I’m sure many of you feel the same. It speaks of summer fun, outdoor concerts, free flowing clothing and wild, tangled hair. It’s adventure and friendship, peace, love, and harmony! There are many summer-lovin’ festival brides who theme their wedding around the bohemian look, and I think it’s an equally groovy theme for a weekend bachelorette party. Here are some ideas to put together a festival themed…

    Imagine walking into a room filled with flowers – anemones and roses and daisies filling the space with their sweet perfumes, colors, and textures. Flowers have a way of lifting the spirit and bringing happiness to any space they fill. So why not create a whole bridal shower around one of nature’s most beautiful creations? Infuse food and drink with flowers. These heart-shaped cookies, made by Confetti and Crumbs, feature a peony print, and the red cocktail is actually a hibiscus tea with a splash of vodka.

    Last month, we had such a fun time doing Baby Kaylana’s newborn photo session.  We photographed her Mommy and Daddy (Eilleene and Ron)’s wedding just last September at Treasure Island.  If you haven’t seen them yet, here are their engagement session and their wedding. Although Darren and I don’t specialize in newborn photography, we do enjoy photographing babies who are less than 14 days old.  The first 2 weeks of a baby’s life are the most precious moments, knowing that the baby is growing everyday and will never be that small and tiny again.

Tara’s dad had selected the venue months before she had gotten engaged.  He had always loved Fairmont.  Fast-forward to Tara and Amir’s venue hunting day, and the first on their list was of course the Fairmont.  All Tara remembered was walking into the ballroom, and tears started streaming down her face!  She knew right there and then that it was meant to be.

    It’s nerve-wracking to propose spending a lifetime together. Even when you know in the deepest depths of your soul that you are with someone who feels the same way, the anxiety may still get the best of you. And so instead of doing the world’s most awesome marriage proposal ever, you sputter out a pathetic, “Do you want to get hitched?” While there’s a good chance your other half will still say “yes,” it’s not exactly the kind of romantic tale you want to tell your kids and grandkids. Also, shouldn’t your beloved deserve more than just a casual question to a grand…
  • Qualities a Wedding Planner Must Have

    The eternal trend in the Middle East is to go all out and fancy, which is why some of the most extravagant weddings the world has ever seen were held here. These weddings will not be possible if couples didn’t go with a highly experienced wedding planner in Jordan, Dubai, Riyadh, etc. When the tension’s high and members of the entourage, along with the couple, are either giddy, nervous, or even drunk in some cases, the wedding planner is like the super glue that holds the event together so that the event will proceed smoothly, as planned.

    If I have to define November weddings in general using just one word, it would be unpredictable.

    Showering a bride and groom with a symbolic item is a practice with roots that go back thousands of years. In ancient Rome, wedding guests threw wheat in celebration of newlywed couples, which symbolized fertility. It also acted as a sort of bouquet-toss; little girls in attendance gathered up the grains for good luck in finding their own happy marriages. Many cultures have adopted a similar tradition, often substituting rice. Would you like to be showered with something festive at your wedding? Feel free to do as the Romans did and use wheat, especially if you don’t care to roll the…

    Thank you to Aaron & Samantha Photography for these wonderful photos from one of our favorite weddings of the year- Lindsay and JD’s cocktail party at Hotel Palomar!  They were probably our most laid-back couple yet- wanted really good food, a fun party, and a great guest experience with simple and minimalistic decor.   We actually had no assigned seating, and the only “traditional” tables were for the immediate families.  Otherwise, we did lots of lounge furniture, belly bars, and bar stools.  I think the guests truly enjoyed this extremely non-stuffy affair!

    When selecting favors for your wedding there are a number of factors you should consider before making your final decision. Some couples do not give enough consideration to their wedding favors and this is quite unfortunate because the wedding favor is the one part of the wedding which your guests will take home as a reminder of your wedding.
