Choosing A Wedding Dress


Your wedding dress is most likely the most important aspect of your wedding and the most difficult one to choose, but it’s also usually one of the most enjoyable parts of the planning, especially since the searching is usually done with a close friend or family member.

Choosing the perfect wedding dress isn’t the same as when you head to the mall to get a new outfit fr the weekend. Instead of simply trying on several dresses until one looks stunning, you need to find one that is tailored to accentuate your features.

All eyes are on the bride the entire day and that almost the majority of photos from your wedding day will include the bride in her dress, so it better look as good as possible and find a dress that fits well with your body type.

In the past, it was a strict tradition that only a virgin would wear white to their wedding, but those days are gone, and if this is not your first wedding, or you are not a virgin, don’t think twice about getting a white dress if that’s what you want to wear.

You will definitely want professional help when choosing your wedding dress. Because it is what they do for a living, they will be very experienced in choosing a dress well-suited for your frame, and chances are high that they’ve already helped other women with your exact body type in the past.

They will know how to pick a dress that will accentuate your best features.  For instance, a dress that has a fitted bodice would be good if you have a large bust, and you might want a dress that is fitted all the way down if have a very small and thin frame (so the dress does not overwhelm your body).

It’s important not to get your hopes set on just one specific dress that you may have seen on another woman in a photo or on a celebrity.  Everyone is different and wedding dresses will appear different on all women. You’re looking for a dress that fits you!

Music For Your Wedding Day

Music For Your Wedding Day


Paying for music on your wedding day is one cost you really aren’t going to get away from and you have two basic options. You can either choose to have the traditional live music with a performer, or you can choose to have recorded music, which has become more and more common these days.

Typically, live music is preferred because the majority of people see it as romantic to have a live performer serenading the new couple on their special day. Also, there are many who see it as being cheap to have recorded music, especially the traditional folks. However it’s quite possible that the couple simply doesn’t enjoy live music, or maybe they want their reception to be low key and be able to have more control over the volume and what music is played.  In this case, it will still cost money because a DJ will be hired to take care of the music and the sound.

If you decide to hire a live music artist or group, be sure to choose one that performs music that both you and your partner enjoy. Remember that this is your day and although you want your guests to have a good time, you don’t want to choose music that pleases them but gives you a headache. If you happen to love heavy metal, then get a hard rockin’ band that blows the roof off the reception hall! It’s your wedding and the celebration is supposed to be fun for you guys!  You still have the option of throwing in a mixed CD in between the bands sets, and that could be toned down a bit if you so desired.

Choosing a DJ is a bit easier as there usually is many to choose from and shouldn’t be hard to find recommendations. DJs are also usually very versatile and have large collections of different types of music, which is perfect for when Aunt June requests a Motown song from 1954.

It’s highly recommended that whatever type of music you choose, it includes at least 2 slow songs. One for the traditional bride and groom alone, and then one after for the guests.  However, as stated above, if you happen to despise sappy love songs, do away with it. There are a lot of traditional guidelines, but no actual rules for a celebration. It’s your wedding!
