thanks so much Jennifer. : ) I feel that I would try them ..Wish me well

SYW site man answers:

I had never heard of them before I read your question. So, I googled them. I was able to find their site and their BBB rating, which is A+. The problem is that I have no first hand experience with them nor do I know anyone that has experience with them.

Wedding Planning Guide?

I’m getting married in about 6 weeks, where can I find a good list of things that I should be doing between now and then?

SYW site man answers:

When I got married I searched under wedding guide, step by step. It brought up dozens of lists, It took me about 10 minutes to find one that was reasonable, printed it off and I had a check list down to the minute before I walked down the isle. It didn’t cost a dime. Good luck and happy wedding day!!

SYW site man answers:

I bought this planner at Target for our wedding. It was great, included sections for addresses, who had responded, who got invited to which events…checklists, places for all your vendor info and all wedding party atire, folders for random slips, even graph paper to draw out seating. The whole thing was about twenty bucks and I used it more than any other tool during the whole planning process. Also, the Martha Stewart weddings magazine always came with a very detailed, tear out checklist. Good luck. You have a ton of time so don’t stress, just enjoy it and make sure things are how you want them first.

Wedding Reception Ideas to Plan With

When starting your wedding plans, first brainstorm for reception ideas. There are many reception ideas found in magazines or on the Internet. Start by pulling pages out of magazines or printing up ideas off the web, then use these ideas to create a visual display so friends and family can help you start to shop.

The reception proves to be the biggest bill on your wedding day. Due to its many elements, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. A key to staying organized is listing the things you wish to have in your reception and budgeting how much you would like to spend on each. Create a chart and go over it with your groom or parents.

The big commitment is choosing a reception location. Once you find the spot, you’re locked into that date. The rest of the wedding plans will begin to sort out now that you have a firm deadline. Other reception expenses include food, drinks, music, decorations, centerpieces, flowers, favors, and the cake. This is where your pages of ideas will come in handy. When meeting with the florist or the baker, show them the pictures that you like. This is gives everyone a concrete idea of what you want for your reception.

Planning a wedding can be frustrating and stressful. Shop around online and ask friends for recommendations before signing any contracts or making any down payments. Look for reception ideas that you can do yourself. Some florists charge over $100 for each centerpiece arrangement, so centerpieces and favors that you can craft at home will save a lot of money. Pull ideas from your wedding theme to create an inexpensive and elegant centerpiece, like seashells and crystals for a beachside wedding.

Remember, your wedding is a big day for your whole family and your groom. No matter how perfect you plan everything, there is a guarantee that a few small things will go wrong. Take the hiccups in stride and don’t let them ruin your day. Your guests are there to celebrate you and your groom, everything else will fall into place.

WEDDING COLLECTIONS

WEDDING COLLECTIONS

A wedding collection forms a very essential part of any wedding. It includes the bride’s wedding gown, the groom’s suit, the couple’s parent’s dresses, the bridesmaids’ gowns, and the best men suits. Undoubtedly, the bride’s gown is the most vital of all. For the bride, her wedding gown is something she dreams about right from her youth, and on her big day, this must be absolutely perfect, making the wedding collections even more crucial.

Wedding collections are available at many leading designers, and there are even some stores that specialize in wedding collections only. Picking the perfect wedding dress is an ultimate dream, trying to get the perfect colours, the perfect fit, and something that makes you look like the bride of your dreams. However, choosing the gown can be very tedious as well, because most of the time you need to visit a store where they show you their entire wedding collection, and you probably end up trying on a million gowns, and not knowing what is it exactly you want.

Wedding collections are made in different styles, textures, materials and colours. Wedding gowns can be made of satin, Mikado, chiffon, batiste, brocade, crepe, gabardine, moiré, organdie, duchesse satin, taffeta, tulle, or velvet. However, the most popular among bride’s has been either satin or Mikado, due to its sheen like finish and classy look. A wedding gown colour also differs in different collections, but the most obvious choice is the white gown, though ivory and a champagne colour are also used sometimes.

The wedding collections offered by most designers are made to impress, with different styles, some unique, some conservative, some bold. The most fashionable design that seems to be the craze nowadays is a strapless sweetheart-style ivory gown, with beading work, and a complete ruched ballgownish skirt. This comes in mostly satin or the Mikado fabrics. The standard costs of these would be between £1000 – £2000.
