You’ll no doubt treasure your wedding photos for a lifetime, so you want to make sure you look your absolute best in them. Even with the perfect hair, makeup and, of course, dress, there might be a few crucial things you forget to do when posing on your big day. These are seven you want to make sure you get right for perfect pictures.
1. Freshen up your makeup. You’ve made it through the ceremony and kissed your groom (probably more than once). When you’re done with the receiving line and moving fast to get in important shots before the cocktail hour begins, it can be easy to forget to freshen up your makeup especially reapplying lip gloss.
2. Hold your bouquet properly. For a traditional bouquet, hold it right in front, at about waist level with your arms held out a bit from your hips a bit. If your arms are right against your sides, it will make you look bigger. Or you can hold it loosely with one hand loosely with one and let the other hang naturally by your side for a more relaxed look.
Some couples like to plan a last dance song as the finale to their night but don’t worry if you’ve forgotten. Many of your guests will have gone home before the final dance, while others will be too tipsy to recall what on earth was playing. Embrace the moment your DJ knows what he’s doing – and if you’re really worried, make a last minute arrangement on the spot with your DJ.
It’s easy to forget about the little details – like who will announce the cutting of the cake and the first dance, and who will welcome you as Mr and Mrs into the wedding breakfast. If the day arrives and you realise you have nobody nominated to announce these things, don’t panic. Firstly, you’ll find the day just flows. Secondly, more often than not, your venue co-coordinator will take on this role. You can also grab a member of your family, or a trusty bridesmaid or usher to take on this responsibility.
3. Focus on your best side. Everyone has one side that photographs better than others. Look in the mirror, take selfies and ask a few honest friends what they think your best side is then let your photographer know that’s the one you want to use for the majority of your shots.
How Become Wedding Planner
If you wait until the weeks before the wedding to book your Calgary wedding photographer, you may find that all of the reputable photographers are booked and cannot accommodate your special day. The best Calgary wedding photographers book up fast. That is why it is essential to decide on which photographer you will be using as soon as you know the date of the wedding and get onto his or her calendar before that date is taken by another soon-to-be bride and groom.
You were in so much of a rush to get your big day invitations out that you forgot to include directions. What’s more, you haven’t had time to pop any signs up in the local village either. Luckily, this needn’t worry you. With satnav and guests traveling together they’re sure to make your special day.
So you’ve forgotten to think of an itinerary for the kids. With no games and no wedding babysitter you’re probably worried the day is going to be havoc! Take a step back and relax knowing that parents will do their best to keep kids in tow. Plus, any minor mishaps involving your littlest guests will just add to the comedy moments of your special day!
When planning a wedding, there is usually a set dollar amount when it comes to the budget and a lot of things to cover within that set dollar amount. You want to make sure you budget for everything before you do your shopping so you can ensure that you won’t go over budget or be left without a way to pay for any items or services if you do go over. That means making a list of all of the services and items you will need for the wedding, such as the venue, the dress, the Calgary wedding photographer, the tux, wedding favors, etc. From the large-ticket necessities to the little things, be sure you create a budget for each line item to ensure you stay on target in regards to the wedding finances.
So many people become so tied up in planning the actual wedding event, they forget to make proper arrangements for what is to happen immediately after the wedding. If the bride and groom are leaving for the honeymoon directly after the reception, make advance arrangements for car service and plan where the luggage will be stored during the ceremony and reception. With so much to plan for, it is easy for some crucial elements to get lost in the planning process. Keep these things in mind to ensure nothing is overlooked or forgotten when planning this very special day.
When it comes to planning a Calgary wedding, there are certain tasks you must never forget to perform and things that you must not forget to plan for. Otherwise, what is meant to be the most memorable day of one’s life can turn into an outright nightmare. While there is definitely a lot on one’s mind during the wedding planning process, make sure these five critical elements are not overlooked.
While it’s nice to have a keepsake with messages from all your family and friends, it’s not the end of the world if you’ve forgotten to buy or bring your guestbook. The majority, if not all, of your wedding guests will be bringing your cards which will most likely replicate any message they would write in your guestbook.
As a bride you’ll want everything about your wedding day to look good and that includes the bar area and dessert table. Don’t worry if you forget to plan every single decor detail though. Truth is, you’ll be the only one that will notice plain white linen. While that extra bit of sparkle and decor might make a huge difference to you, your guests will admire your efforts either way.
Menu cards can be a nice-to-have’ and provide a way to add to your table decor, but they’re not essential. They certainly won’t impact on your guests’ experience of your mouth-watering wedding food.
There is a time and a place for everything. Your wedding may not be the place you want a hip hop party to erupt and you probably won’t appreciate the DJ trying to turn the reception into his latest rave. While live entertainment may come highly recommended or a DJ may have a stellar reputation in the club scene, it doesn’t mean they are an appropriate choice for a wedding. When interviewing the DJ or band, make sure you are on the same page in regards to the ambiance you want and ask to see videos of their past wedding performances.
