    With all you have to think about for your upcoming wedding, favors for your guests might not be at the top of your to-do list right now. And, truth be told, many of your guests wouldn’t bat an eye if you didn’t have wedding favors. After all, you’ll likely be hooking your guests up with plenty of delicious food and drinks and you’re definitely providing them up with an excellent celebration. But wedding favors are a kind gesture to your guests and they can be of particular use if you’re having an outdoor wedding. An outdoor wedding, especially if it’s a camping wedding like the…

Photo from a friend By 5:42, we were heading back down that aisle together as husband and wife. No matter how many people told me that our wedding day would fly by or nothing would matter as soon as I started my walk down the aisle, nothing could have prepared me for just how much of a blur the day was. I didn’t hear our carefully selected ceremony music playing, didn’t care that our flower-petal aisle…

All photos from Caili Helsper Photography unless otherwise noted The leaves indicate name & table number, the flower color indicates meal choice, and the leaf color indicates where the guest is seated. And the display (was supposed to be) a ribbon, which slips between the two leaves. (It covers the table number, but you can see it as soon as you pull yours off.) Part of the reason I liked…

    Every couple strives to have a “personal” wedding- and in many respects, of course it’s personal- it’s the two of your wedding and the people there are your collective friends and family- but most people want to take that further.  Yet, often, beyond serving up your favorite cocktails and coming up with a clever monogram, it can be a challenge to rattle your creative cages and come up with something that feels really personal TO you. A great place to start is a central idea/concept/thought that you want to have anchor the entire celebration… it can be super…

    I’m always super inspired by the Paris Couture shows… Not so much by the clothes (which, of course, are inspiring) but the Couture shows always really bring it in the Set Design department, which can be really helpful sources for inspiration when it comes to event design. A few years ago I was totally obsessed with this structure at the top of the runway at the Dolce and Gabbana Couture show. So much so that it inspired this chuppah structure from a wedding that we did this past May. With that in mind, here are a few of the set “looks” from the fall couture shows that…

    Anne
    3 Jul 2014 | 7:12 am
    Why do photographers watermark photos?The watermark over a photo is there to protect that photo from being used inappropriately by someone who does not have permission to use or distribute the image.  This is especially important when images appear in online galleries that can be accessed without passwords, most often with services like Facebook or Pinterest, which require that you give their company full permission to use a photo anywhere and for any purposes whenever you upload an image to their site. Without that watermark, someone may find an image of you, your children, or your…

    In the last 3-4 years I've seen a steep increase in my everyday clients requesting additional privacy of their images for things like celebrations and family portraits.  Sometimes it's because of their political stature, occasionally for the sensitivity of celebrity guests, and most often with regular families just because they really prefer to protect their image from being shared in any way that isn't approved by them first.  I've encountered more speakeasy-style events with an intimate audience in which guests are asked to leave their phones and cameras at the door, as well as…

It can be tough to choose but once you've made a selection, stick with it - from your Save the Dates to the wedding favors to the flowers - everything will look so much more pulled together and streamlined if it's all in the same palette. This will also help you achieve a better focus when shopping - you'll…

To be honest, I'm still not fully on board with boudoir but I'll admit that every once in a while there's an exception to the rule.

    Oh! Shoes Tori Mary Jane Pump Some of us who are getting married have special needs feet — we've got arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and/or countless conditions that cause us pain or discomfort. Chronic pain doesn't make us love cute shoes any less! And heck: some of us who don't have chronic pain just plain old LIKE shoes that feel awesome. So, here are a few options for those of us who need (or just want!) lower heel heights, more arch support, padded footbeds, and a little more love for our toes. Obviously, you know your special foot needs best and…

First, I wanted to say that I do love your website and can't wait to be able to apply to become part of the Tribe! That being said, I have a question: I was wondering if anyone has tackled the question of having wedding paraphernalia (e.g. magazines, etc.) in the home of a pre-engaged couple, if said couple has talked about marriage. Just curious if there are thoughts on etiquette. I have two camps of friends: Those that think I shouldn't hide anything and if I feel the need…

    Katie
    19 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    Even modern brides who reject antiquated wedding traditions often embrace a vintage style when it comes to their look. Maybe it’s because of our untainted view of a more innocent romance of our grandmother’s time or maybe it’s due to the popularity of Downton Abbey.  Whatever the reason, many of today’s brides love adding a bit of old fashioned style to their special day looks. Here are a few tips on how to incorporate that perfect vintage touch to your bridal ensemble. The Dress The most obvious way to pull in a vintage influence is, of course, in your dress.  And since many…

    Ryan was an adorable groom with butterflies before his wedding ceremony - not because he was nervous about marrying Mary, but because he hadn't seen her all day when Denise and I arrived.  His Mar-Bear, as he calls her (the first word in his vows that he wrote), is the other half of him.  Together, the two have an undeniable energy that is easily witnessed, if you are around them for longer than a mere two minutes.  You can see the love, passion, friendship, and fun that these two have together.  I think they wear their hearts on their sleeves for each other, their…

    Mallory and Jonathan were wed at the Wolfeboro Inn on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.  With a deep family history of vacationing on the lake, a waterfront wedding was a given for our bride.  The Inn has the advantage of being fully inclusive, so all facets of the celebration took place in and around the historic inn.  In the bridal suite, sister Kate and all the bridesmaids flitted about the rooms in joyous conversation with the bride to be.  A corner room with a view lent perfectly to peaking out the curtains to see guests filter in, taking their seats on the sloping…

The baptism took place at St. Ann's, a beautiful stone church on the water in Kennebunkport, and was performed by the same priest who baptized Kathryn and Christian's two oldest children and officiated their wedding ceremony. Grace was perfectly happy to be the center of attention for much of the service being transferred from one set of arms to the next. Her older siblings, Claire and James, were happy to…

    With sand in between her toes, her fingers, and- before long- her mouth, little miss Caroline was primed to explore her non-city surroundings early one Sunday morning. Visiting her grandparents from Boston and for her baptism in Kennebunkport, our portrait session marked Caroline's almost first birthday. After a few minutes, we headed back to their house nearby for some more fun in the grass with bubbles and giggles and family snuggles. Such a sweet age, and so grateful for the chance to document this adoring family.

So, I'd like to update you a bit on why I do what I do. This does not mean that all officiants will agree with me on the meaning of each element, as a matter of fact, there can be great debate about…

Try pairing lighter wines with delicate dishes and heavy-bodied wines with rich, hearty food. In your menu card add a description of the wine so guest know why it is paired with that certain meal.

I can tell you, a renewal of vows is much more than just a celebrity trend or a good-natured nod to 20 plus years of marriage. Unfortunately, not every couple gets to plan and have the wedding of their dreams. Anything from military deployment to an unexpected bundle of joy can rearrange wedding plans.

    Valerie and Amy were married at Monterre Vineyards in Orefield, Penn. on May 17. “We first connected over a bottle of wine; a vineyard seemed quite fitting,” Valerie said. “It was also quaint and rustic and offered a beautiful oak tree for our ‘I do’ backdrop.” The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the other bride wore a satin one-shoulder a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of red platform pumps. “Our son decided he wanted red at the wedding, but I wanted to stay away…

    Hi ESB,I thought maybe you and your readers could offer some kind words, or some advice. I can't tell if my husband is making me depressed, or if my depression is making me unhappy with my husband.I got married about a year ago, after dating for 5 (I'm 26, he's 30). We moved to a new city recently and life is "perfect" (nice home, great social life, good jobs). Except that I'm depressed as shit and doubting everything in my marriage. I'm really hoping it's just a phase and that once I work through this bout of depression everything will go back to normal. I'm currently seeing a therapist and…

    My favourite thing about photographing other people's kids is spending a couple of hours revelling in the very specific eccentricities of a time in childhood that is totally different from the one we're swimming in at home. This week I photographed twins who had just turned one, when I photographed Harry in the woods he was a few weeks from his second birthday. Just Turned One and Almost Two are entirely different, equally charming planets from Three and Six Months. Almost Two is all about the trains, over and over and over the trains.

    Dear Ilah,This month you turned 4! You are growing and changing – rapidly – right before my very eyes. And as you change, I change too – adjusting my parenting style with your ever changing ways.

It was a great, busy and fun-filled, month.....Here's a bit of a recap highlighting some of the things we did!.....I'm by no means a Starbucks addict, but in the spirit of the season, I felt like I should have a red cup in hand every now and then, so I indulged here and there. That mostly happened while strolling through Target. I love that my local store has a Starbucks inside!I finally - FINALLY - purchased some new makeup for myself. I can't tell you how long overdue that was. I was "managing" with a compact that was dropped by my 3 year old; my foundation was…

We were supposed to stay for 4 days/3 nights, but ended up staying an extra day/night because we just didn't want to leave yet! Visiting that charming city never gets old! The morning that…

It’s part of our job to make people comfortable around us, and I like to think we do it well. But with Midge, it was easy and natural.

Meeting them both for the first time was pretty awesome, and I remember not being able to contain myself and skipping towards her and giving her a hug. I adore Paula.

We drive south of Manila often, to Tagaytay and Batangas for work, so we went north this time. Back in college, Jeff would borrow his dad’s car and pick me up Sunday mornings to take me on road trips. We would save up what we could during the week for gas and snacks for the drive, and he would make us mix tapes to play on the road. There are few things I love in this world more than being next to him as he drives along open roads and we’re singing along to good…

We hit it off on musical inclinations and a shared soft spot for vinyl records alone, but taking pictures of them is seriously bordering on addicting. They tied the knot just three weeks ago in a chill and laid-back Boho-Rock themed wedding, which was so perfectly them. Lots of pretty details to swoon over, but more than anything, so much happiness and personality all around. The mood of the day is, quite honestly, dependent on how happy the…

We first met them over lunch in Greenbelt, and Jon struck me as someone quiet and serious. But seeing their travel photos and actually taking pictures of them together, it’s amazing how he lightens up so much around her. Rachel’s so full of life, and she really just lights up every room she’s in. And in a way, I think Jon keeps Rachel centered and grounded. They complement each other so beautifully. These crazy…

    Planning on traveling internationally? Ensure you arrive at your airline’s ticket counter at least two hours prior to your flight’s scheduled departure time. This ensures  you have enough time to have your passport verified, check any luggage, and receive your boarding pass. If you arrive at the ticket counter with 60 minutes or less time remaining until your scheduled departure time, most likely you will be denied boarding and miss your flight. Some international cities suggest a three-hour airport arrival. View Southwest Airlines airport information page for some great tips.

    Just in case you were wondering if you should invite wedding guests via text, the answer is usually no. However, for this bride, it made for the one of the best wedding photos ever.

When she realized what she had done, she explained the invite was a mistake. The stranger’s response? “We still coming.” Priceless. Just like the resulting photo. Looking for a wedding band, grooms?

  • The Wedding of Sarah & Colin

    admin
    20 Jul 2014 | 9:53 pm
    It’s worth the drive to Owen Sound   I photographed Sarah’s sister Laura’s wedding 7 years ago.  Great to see her and Jules with their three kids – and to be welcomed so warmly by their lovely Mom. But on to Sarah & Colin who selected the picturesque Inn at Cobble Beach to hold their ceremony and reception.  Just the view driving down to the location provides a stunning view of Georgian Bay.  And I’m always happy to photograph weddings at a new location, especially one as beautiful as this one.  The weather threatened all day.  Fortunately, we did the…

    There are so many reasons we love working at the Ritz – the location right in the heart of Downtown Boston, the array of beautiful spaces to take wedding photos, and the classic and elegant ballroom are only a few of them! We were thrilled when Emily + Lou hired us to photograph their summer wedding at the Ritz Carlton Boston Common, and the day turned out to be perfect. The bride and groom both started their morning getting ready at the Ritz — Emily with her bridal party and Lou with his groomsmen. When the soon-to-be newlyweds were ready, we took them downstairs to the…

They simply wanted something very intimate and personal. However, they did end up inviting (in a somewhat tricky manner, in order to surprise them) their parents. Tiffany realized she would feel awful if she didn’t invite them. Once they were invited, they also decided to have a sword…

A.  It is quite common to have an A and a B guest list.  The A Guest List will have those traveling the greatest distances as well as those closest to your heart. …

It has all kinds of dingy textures and old abandoned buildings with signs like “Unreinforced Masonry Wall – Do Not Linger in the Vicinity”.

    The bridal shoes have a special importance for the bride-to-be and choosing the right pair could be a stressful task as the pressure of looking your best and feeling comfortable at the same time will be huge. Add to the equation the fact that they have to match the wedding theme and the set color scheme you will feel tired before you have even started shopping, but if you are one bride that loves to stand out, things begin to simplify. All you need is a pair of shoes that features rhinestones. The more embellished they will be the more chances you have to stun your guests. CreditWedding…

Providing you with inspiration for your wedding is something that I hold close to my heart and I believe it is a necessary part of wedding planning.

    When the day is done, the flowers have wilted, the food has been eaten and the champagne has been cheered. The bottom of your dress is dirty and you’ve ditched the high heels for bare feet or flats. From my experience, while all the objects of the day have wilted, been consumed or thrashed, there’s one thing that stands unchanged and in many ways stronger than when the day began…The way you feel about each other. Don’t be distracted from the true meaning of your wedding. Let true love live till the end of the evening (and ever after).

  • The Ashford Estate, Kay English Photography, and NJ Wedding Planner Reverie Events Featured on Style Me Pretty

    Kristin Polhemus
    11 Jul 2014 | 6:04 am
    It was a late September morning at The Ashford Estate where I first met Nicole and her mom.  The Reverie office is just five minutes away from The Ashford Estate, and the short, sunny drive through corn fields and apple orchards never gets old.  I drove through the familiar front gate and down the grove of trees, ready to meet the next bride with whom I would work so closely to help design a day so near and dear to her heart. It wasn’t until later I met Chris, Nicole’s kind-hearted groom.  But when I saw the two together, I knew in my heart that this was a love that will last.

    Originally posted on Dr. Alan Viau: “Whatever Floats Your Boat” is a common expression which means “Do whatever makes you happy”.  Do Whatever Makes You Happy is a life view that people promote. One lesson often downplayed in living with a Whatever Floats Your Boat approach is to periodically check to see if things are alright. You see it all over. Programs/Ads/Gurus tell you to set your goals and work hard towards to achieve happiness. Don’t let the obstacles get in the way. Challenges only make you stronger.

    Nicole Denton
    23 Jul 2014 | 4:18 pm
    Happy Wednesday! Today, I’m sharing a pretty big announcement about the future of the Plunge Project. As many of you know, I started the Plunge Project in 2010 when I was planning my own wedding. I found that I loved blogging about weddings so much that I decided to continue to blog and focus on growing the Plunge Project into what is it today, even years after tying the knot myself. As amazing as it’s been to be founder and editor-in-chief all of these years, it’s time I must pass the torch. And I’m excited to announce that I’m passing it to someone who has much…
  • Design Your Dream Shoes at Project Shoe

    Nicole Denton
    7 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    I love shoes. Seriously. But what woman doesn’t? The problem I tend to have, however, is that I buy shoes based on looks, and they end up spending 99% of their life on display in my closet because they’re just too uncomfortable to actually wear. All that said, I was still pretty excited when the Project Shoe team reached out to me to try out their service and order my very own pair of custom shoes. I was even more excited when my shoes arrived that week and I put them on my feet, because not only are the gorgeous, they’re incredibly comfortable and made of some really…

The couple chose to leave the natural lawn as the floor for the white and soft green marquee in order to reflect the garden theme, with vases of fresh blooms creating a natural flow-on effect from the outdoors. “We had four long tables all named after our favourite flowers, and we mixed everybody up so that our families and parents’ friends were intermingled,” Sarah said. “Weddings are a good way to meet lots of great new…

Instead, personal touches that reflected their passions played a big part in their celebration: their vows had quotes from children’s books, they donated to an important foundation in lieu of giving out favors, and they wore a “unity cord” made of 1000 colorful paper cranes that family & friends helped fold during the ceremony. The venue itself was a quirky choice — an art museum…

Malta is a place quite foreign to us, and having no expectations was a great way to view their day with fresh eyes. Weaving their morning ritual of cappuccinos at sunrise beside the sea into the story of their wedding set the tone nicely. From there, wandering the shores where Darren was raised, walking the streets of Valletta from Katia’s parents home to the church, and partying the night away at Villa Corinthia rounded out…

You can send them later, of course, but conventional courtesy asks that you give people a heads up about six months before the event. Here are some ideas to consider for yours (click each to browse more designs). And as an added bonus, most are very affordable, in the range of $1-$2 each …   Snowflakes falling from the sky or simply incorporated into your design add an elegant touch.   Christmas red and/or holiday trees are cute for a late December wedding.  …
  • How to Make Mini S’mores Bar Centerpiece Favors

    Bobette Kyle
    26 Jun 2014 | 10:11 am
    Nearly everyone loves s’mores and they are so fun to make! They are a natural for outdoor dessert stations, but we tweaked the idea for use as favor centerpieces. What you will need. 1. S’mores ingredients: chocolate bars, graham crackers, and marshmallows. 2. Skewers (or forks) to hold marshmallows. 3. An indoor flame: non scented pillar candles (better than votives in the photo) or Sterno cooking fuels (works even better). 4. Glass platters. Plastic is doable, but I’d be wary of them getting melted. 5. tulle 6. ribbon 7. scissors How to put the centerpiece together. 1)…

    If you are having your wedding on the same day in the same place as another wedding, both of you can use the decorations and split the cost. One of you can take care of set-up and the other take-down, saving time and money for both of you. The wedding ideas on a budget are from the Dream Wedding on a Dime; 7 Secrets for the Budget-Savvy Bride ebook.

    In some ways, getting married is like buying a house; it’s a major milestone in life and–almost always–there is initial sticker shock. (“It costs how much?!”) For those of you who cannot afford the average $26,000-ish wedding cost, some ideas for keeping both the dream and piggy bank intact are below (these are some of the 300+ tips from the Dream Wedding on a Dime; 7 Secrets for the Budget-Savvy Bride ebook): Tip 1: Invite close friends and family; send announcements only to more distant acquaintances.

    An artistic modern wedding in Tempe, AZThe Tempe Center for the Arts in Arizona is a fascinating, contemporary venue for a wedding ceremony since it houses an art gallery, a theatre and a ballroom overlooking the Salt River. Tena and Simon’s February wedding played off the modern architecture of the Center with lots of fabulous teal and lime details and meaningful traditions – all captured by Photography by Verdi. Tena chose a lovely teal for her bridesmaids’ dresses (each girl chose her own dress style) that matched the peacock feather accents in the bouquets, boutonnieres…

    A vintage-inspired wedding in a French castleI can hardly think of a more romantic wedding venue than a French castle. The Château de Montgobert is a neoclassical castle built in the 18th century, not very far from Paris. Pauline and Alexandre selected the Château for its elegance and coziness. Pauline created a great deal of the decorations and flower arrangements herself. She also decorated the reception hall of the castle with items she found in flea markets and then painted in a vintage style.

    A winter engagement at a luxury hotel in IcelandWhen Photos by Miss Ann sent over this sweet engagement session, I was completely enthralled by the landscape of Iceland. Vanessa and Farid are from Singapore, so they’re used to a warm climate, but they chose Iceland for their destination wedding adventure. The draw of the winter landscape and the Northern Lights was compelling, and the night before they got married, they took photos at dusk around the ION Luxury Adventure Hotel. The moss and snow-covered lava fields, geothermal steam from the nearby plant, winding roads and Mount Hengill…

    Hot new wedding trends for styles, themes and colors for the modern bride and groom include simple and homey or flashy and elegant.  This year’s weddings seem to be going more toward down-home and country with the popular wedding theme Rustic Country or Chic & Shabby. The Rustic Country theme wedding is usually held in an outdoor setting with lots of western or ranch theme decor. Having the wedding or reception in a country barn is the hot trend this year. Many people with ranches or farms are renting out their barns for weddings and special events as a way to bring in additional…

    In the early stages of wedding planning the bride and groom can become over-whelmed with what to put on their list of “things to do”. There always seems to be a flood of information and ideas and it’s can be stressful to figure out what is important. Here are a few ideas of important steps to take in the early stages of your wedding planning. 1)  Decide how big and grand to go with your wedding.  How many guests will you want to attend and how many guests can you afford to have at your wedding reception.  Quite often in the early stages of planning the bride and groom…

Here are a few things to put on your list of things to do a few months before the wedding. 1)  Announce your engagement and let your friends and family know you have set a date for you wedding.  You can have an engagement party and announce your plans or you can send out “Save The Date” cards.  Sending out the cards to announce the date for your wedding lets family and friends who don’t live close by be aware that they may need to set aside vacation time so that…

For a more traditional bridal design, wedding veil suppliers offer the standard and simple tulle veils with cut edge, pencil edge or corded edge in the standard colors of white, diamond white (off-white) or ivory.  Diamond white is a great color for light ivory wedding gowns as it is not bright white and it’s not a yellowish ivory …. it’s in between the two colors.  You can get these veils in one or two tiers in lengths from shoulder, elbow, fingertip, knee, floor, chapel and…

    In the past few years, it has become a popular wedding tradition to incorporate a Sand Ceremony into the wedding ceremony. It’s a simple, and visually appealing part of the wedding ceremony.  It represents the blending of two people’s lives – the bride & groom – and in many cases it can represent the blending of two families when the bride and groom have children from previous unions.  The sand contains many small particles that would be impossible to separate….so the lives of the bride and groom become intertwined and impossble to separate.

The family celebrated at a small temple in Williamsburg, VA. With just 150 families belonging to the shul, the atmosphere was intimate and special. For many Bar Mitzvahs, ceremonies get the short end of the stick in the photo album if the temple doesn’t allow photography on Shabbat. But that doesn’t have to…

    Whether you go on a Birthright trip or family vacation, being Bar or Bat Mitzvah’d in Israel has become a growing way for Jewish families to connect with their religious roots. The same was true was for Leila, who received her Bat Mitzvah in Israel and decided to celebrate with family and friends when she returned home. Of course, after having returned from such a memorable trip, it only made sense that the party would honor her Israeli experience, with a Milk and Honey themed affair!  The memorable event was planned by Melisa Imberman of The Event of a Lifetime.

    This week our challenge to stop being hard on ourselves as mums is to take some some unapologetic me time.  No, not the kind of "I'll schedule it in but something else might come up with the kids and I'll put it off for another night" me time but the kind of "I'm a great mom, I'm a great person but in order to be the best person I can I have to nurture me" me time.  Because if we put even a tenth of the effort we put into every other part of our lives into ourselves just imagine what we could do!So this week I've been taking time for me left right and centre.  I skipped the…

She's obsessed with chairs and wants to climb into her stroller, the lounge, the ottoman, the dining chair, uh well any kind of chair. She's started walking but still prefers crawling or walking holding onto an adult finger. She dances to elmo's song and claps along Iggy Azalia on the radio (weird combo I know)  She will only feed herself and helps me dress herself most days.  She loves building with her…

    Pip Doyle is one of my favourite blogging brides, so it gives me great pleasure to share her little ditty about wedding trends that are no longer. A gravelly, primal ‘Noooo, that’s not right, surely!’ finds it’s way out of my mouth whenever someone says something ridiculous like ‘Yeah, 2004, that was ten years ago’. In my mind, ’10 years ago’ was more like 1995. I still ask people what they did for NYE in 1999 and don’t judge them if they were genuinely concerned about Y2K. We all were. I don’t know how neon snuck back into fashion but you heard it here first when I say…

    Marriage Name Change

  • Summarize My Name Change Options

    Valera
    6 Jul 2014 | 10:27 pm
    Most of us, when we think about the "getting married/name change" process think about a bride taking on her partner's last name and leaving her own maiden name behind. This is because, for a long time, that is the way that it worked almost everywhere. If Sophia Jones was marrying Jessie Smith, her new name was going to be Sophia Smith. No muss, no fuss. Tradition isn't for everyone, though. For some people, keeping their independent names works best. For others, it's hyphenation. Some grooms will take their bride's last name. Sometimes a couple will even choose an…

    Years ago a married couple needed to have a joint account, share and use credit cards as a couple, and also have a joint mortgage with their names. As time has gone by, things have become a little complicated as man and his wife are now working and their income sources are not usually the same. Also, people are now getting married much older and financially established before they're married and merging finances once they have married becomes a complicated issue. In case you are wondering whether to merge finances or not, there is no one way to it. There are different solutions and some…

Your fiance is waiting on you to tell you how many groomsmen he needs. Uh-oh, this can really present a problem, especially if you have a bunch of friends and you are close to all of them. The last thing you really want to do is hurt someone's feelings or lose a friendship. First of all, if someone gets mad at you and stops being your friend because you don't make them your maid of honor, matron of honor…
  • Getting Married and Out of Debt

    Getting married for most people is the happiest day of their lives, until debt is added to the equation. Debt can destroy a marriage and leave the remaining pieces on the floor. To ensure that your marriage is all that it can be, and stays that way, there are a few things that can be done. Before you get married, consider your finances from a "debt perspective." Debt-Free Happiness? Yes, there is such thing as debt-free happiness! When you or your spouse are up to your ears in debt, more than likely, you will not be a happy camper. When you get married, debt does not disappear.

However, the important question is, how should this place be? Or where should it be? The moment you answer these questions, your honeymoon will be worth the memories. The honeymoon destination needs to be a secret and this should be kept that way. However, the characteristics of your venue of choice should be the guide when making your decisions.

    25 Jul 2014 | 5:24 am
    Entry 29  of my Photography diary and this is a very special post for me as it is the first set of photos of my new born baby. I gave birth to my baby boy on 19th June, Dexter Theo Hood was born at 6.56am weighing in at a healthy 8lb 2oz. I picked up a DSLR camera about a year and half ago with the sole purpose of being able to take a decent photo once I was lucky enough to have my own baby. Since Dexter has been born, both Nik and I have got a whole lot of use out of the camera and have enjoyed capturing his first few days and savoring each moment we have with him. I have to admit that the…

    27 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Photo by: Peter&Veronika Photography via Belle the Magazine   It’s not always the bride who goes a little crazy during the wedding planning stage. Sometimes those closest to the bride, like the bridesmaids, are the ones at fault. On the one hand they’re the bride’s greatest support system, willing to help her, offer advice, and lend an ear during all the stressful times. But on the other hand some bridesmaids can get carried away and cause all kinds of problems for the rest of the bridal party and the bride. So what’s a bride to do when one of these bridesmaid-zillas rears…

    When I was a kid, I had a pretty clear vision of the future. And all of my ideas about what the future would hold came directly from television and movies. Perhaps I wasn’t a terribly imaginative child … but I digress. I figured we’d all have flying cars, a la the Jetsons, by the time I was grown. And I figured kids of the future would ride hover boards instead of boring old skateboards. TV and movies also gave me the impression that we’d all have a lot more robots in our lives. I, personally, was looking forward to fewer chores thanks to my own Rosie. While I haven’t heard much in…

I guess you could say we’re both addicted. I’m not rude about it—at least, I don’t think I am. I don’t keep my phone on the dinner table. I don’t glaze over and scroll through my phone when…

    Let’s be honest, on the ladder of trustworthiness, search engine consultants fall somewhere between lawyers and members of Congress. But nobody seeks us out at parties for our stories or makes Netflix shows set in the world of SEO. No, instead you have two choices when it comes to SEO. You’re either the nerdy Poindexter, sitting alone at his computer, muttering about meta descriptions and H1 tags, or worse, a snake oil salesman, promising the world that if you’ll just spend thousands of dollars on some magic formula that never quite seems to be finished, you’ll win the Internet.

  • An everlasting bouquet: How to preserve your wedding flowers

    Adirondack Weddings
    8 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    For many Adirondack brides, preserving the wedding dress is a given. But have you considered preserving your wedding flowers, too? Because you can do it yourself at home, it’s far less costly than preserving your gown, and instead of sitting in the back of your closet, this pretty memento will liven up your home with memories of your big day. Preserving flowers by drying them is one of the simplest and most elegant craft ideas. You might choose to dry not only your bridal bouquet, but also the flowers from your reception centerpieces. Once the flowers have dried, hang them upside down on a…
  • Fourth of July Treat: ADK Patriotic Parfait

    Kat
    2 Jul 2014 | 3:06 pm
    Independence Day is here, meaning it’s time to enjoy delicious foods and partake in festivities that celebrate freedom. For brides and grooms-to-be looking for a healthy snack appropriate for these hot midsummer days, we’ve created a colorful parfait made of Greek yogurt, Chia seeds, and assorted berries. Chia seeds are an easy and healthy addition to many plates. They’re a good source of omega-3 acids, antioxidants, fibre, calcium, and protein. Ingredients: •   2 cups of Greek yogurt (We chose to use vanilla flavored.) •   1/8 cup of Chia seeds •   2/3…
  • Bridal Beauty: DIY Honey Face Scrub

    Adirondack Weddings
    11 Jun 2014 | 7:00 am
    Every bride deserves to walk down the aisle with confidence, and confidence begins with having healthy skin. The months prior to your wedding is the perfect time to indulge yourself with a spa facial. But to achieve or maintain glowing skin at home, look no further than your kitchen! Honey isn’t just a great wedding favor; it also smooths your skin. For a gentle face scrub, combine with other simple ingredients you probably already have on hand — milk, oatmeal, and olive oil. Each of these ingredients have special benefits that will leave your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.

    As the last bit of chill leaves the air and the first buds of Adirondack wildflowers emerge from the no-longer-frozen ground, we at Adirondack Weddings can’t help but think of all the romantic possibilities warmer weather holds. Fresh green leaves are brightening the landscape and the scent of lilacs are filling the air with sweet, intoxicating aromas … early summer just might be the perfect time to get outside with your beloved. Why not make the most of nature by enjoying it with a picnic? (We happen to believe yummy food makes everything better!) To prepare for your day…
  • An ADK Girl in the South: What do Adirondack weddings and Texas weddings have in common?

    Adirondack Weddings
    29 May 2014 | 11:52 am
    Heidi LaPoint, a native North Country girl—and Adirondack Weddings’ first ever intern!—recently visited family in mid-Texas and was struck by the similarities between the two seemingly different regions. The Adirondacks represent one of America’s farthest points north, and the state of Texas is one of America’s farthest point south, yet common ground can be found in the rolling hills, the thriving farms, and a love of rustic, nature-inspired wedding details. Much like the Adirondacks, “Hill Country,” the prominent hills of Central Texas, is known for its rich history,…

    Waistcoats in 2014 are now no longer just for old school businessmen and wedding attire. They’ve taken on a more rugged look and adopted rougher fabrics like Harris Tweed and wool to work with a heritage influence. These waistcoats are as far from farmer tweed as you can go; they’re tailored, fitted and sartorially stylish. Scroll Burgundy Men’s Waistcoat by DQT This new brand of waistcoats look great when paired with mixed textures such as Oxford shirts and knitted ties but they also look great with brighter coloured bow ties and floral shirts.

    Celebrity cravat and morning suit idols should include guys like David Beckham. When he was seen at the Royal Wedding in 2012, he showed all normal blokes that you don’t have to look like you’re the one getting married in a morning coat and cravats. This means that your groomsmen can rock the morning coats too and you can all look uber dapper together. If you’re all going to wear them, which you should to create the best look, then perhaps consider a different colour or style waistcoat or cravat for yourself so that you stand out from the crowd and still look like it’s your day.

After getting engaged in September 2013, the couple decided to jetset to California for their I Do’s. As lovers of travel, a destination wedding suited them well (although it didn’t hurt that most of Talat’s family lives in Sonoma!)

    Want to add some luster to your wedding? There is a new craze in the wedding market fellas and that's pulling the ultimate crowd pleaser with a choreographed man dance. The options are endless, but whether you go as Beyoncé or Bieber, you are bound to get the party started right with synchronized swiveling hips. So get in your basement or man cave with your boys, throw on some MTV and get started. This is going to take a little practice with your groomsmen to pull off.

We'll we hate to break it to you, but you've only accomplished the first step in going from fiance to husband and there are a lot more detail to come before the final "I do." But it's her job to plan the wedding, right? I'm not expected to do anything, right? She doesn't want me to help, right? Wrong. Wrong. And, well, wrong. As you've probably heard from the occasional (okay, maybe not so occasional) bridezilla story, wedding planning is super stressful, especially for her, so she could use your help along the way.

    When it comes to the varying components of aligning the perfect wedding experience, groomsmen gifts do offer some room for error. Guys are generally forgiving and will be focusing on the moment, the drinking and the bonding.  When it’s all said and done, pegging the best gift isn’t going to make or break the event.  You pick the wrong appetizer menu, and the grannies and older crowd may be squabbling for months about it at their weekly pinnocle night.  If you screw up the music, you just may find a large majority of the crowd sitting in their chairs waiting for the night to be over.
