ARE YOU A PHOTOGRAPHER?
When you are planning your wedding, there are so many amazing wedding ideas that you can bring to life. First you have to choose your location and time of year. Do you want to have your wedding in your hometown where the two of you grew up where the weather is perfect in the springtime or would you prefer to say I do in a beautiful beach destination over the summer? Or, do you love the holidays and want to plan your event around Christmastime? Once you decide that, you then have to decide if you want your ceremony and reception indoors or out.
After you figure out those main details, all the other details you hope for can be brought to life. Many women have amazing wedding ideas for your special day planned out since you were a little girl, or at least since you began dating the person you knew for sure was "the one."
A wedding gown for your wedding day is so exciting to pick out. With so many different styles of wedding gowns out there, you really have to choose what you love the best and makes you feel the most comfortable. Of course you want it to look amazing, but be sure that you are able to move around and sit down in the dress just like you would have to do on your wedding day. You would hate to fall in love with a dress, and spend the money on it, only to not be able to enjoy it and truly enjoy one of the best days of your life. Which style would work best for you? A-line, mermaid, ballgown, sheath, empire, etc. The best way to start with your gown wedding ideas is looking at inspirational photos!
How about those bridesmaid dresses? A really fun wedding idea is to have each bridesmaid in a different style of dress. If some of your bridesmaids live far away, or you simply want each of your bridesmaids to pick out their own dress, a great idea is to pick the exact color you want them to wear, and then find a paint swatch at a hardware store that matches that color. You can give each bridesmaid a paint swatch so you know they have the exact color when they go find their dress! That way you will not have any surprises with a bridesmaid showing up in a color that does not match.
The wedding photography is something you want to be sure not to forget about and there are some amazing wedding ideas when it comes to engagement photos, bridal portraits and more. Do you prefer to have more candid photos that take you step by step through your entire wedding day or do you really want to make sure you have posed family portraits since you actually have your entire family all together that day? You need to make sure you find the photographer who is perfect for you (which SnapKnot can help you with if you create a FREE profile here)! Make sure you meet with your potential photographer, see some of the past work that they do, let them know the types of photos you are looking for and any other questions you may have. Just remember, even the most experienced photographers need to know what it is exactly that you are looking for.
You have picked out your wedding venue, now you have to decide how you want to decorate it all and get more wedding ideas. The decor for your wedding day is so important and you want to decorate the space to go along with the overall theme of your day. The ceremony is the very first impression that your guests will have of your wedding day and they will be sure to remember all the details if you put in that extra effort into how you decorate that space. Decors ideas are endless! You can make a big statement with drapes and colored lighting; and there are so many great DIY decor ideas you can create on your own.
Florals can add personality and some great pops of color to your wedding day. There are so many variations to choose from so it is best to plan ahead and speak to a florist about your color and theme before you pick out which flowers you prefer. Also, be sure to figure out where you want the florals to be. Do you just want to use flowers in your bouquets, or do you also want flowers to be the centerpieces on every table? Maybe you would really love flowers to line the isle during the ceremony. All of these options take planning and you need to be sure all the flowers look great and fit in with your wedding colors.
Giving a little something to each guest who attends your wedding is a great way to show them all how much you appreciate their support and love on one of the most important days of your life. Wedding favors are a fun way to show that appreciation and there are so many great wedding ideas for favors that can go along with any theme. There are even many great and easy DIY wedding favor ideas if you want to try and save some money. From creative and kitschy to traditional or edible, let your creativity step in to come up with the perfect wedding favor for your guests.
Your honeymoon!
