5 things to ponder about your wedding day

Hi All! #WeddingTipsTuesdays is your newsletter of 5 tips, hacks, tricks and helpful tidbits to help your wedding planning. If there’s anything you would like for us to tackle, please let me know. Enjoy this week’s hacks and thoughts!  

  • Something your guests need to be aware of

Put the phones away. It’s great, yet sad, that this photographer needs to bring this subject to light on guests taking pictures at ceremonies and taking moments away from the bride and other guests. We see this at almost every technology-allowed ceremony. Someone is sticking their phone or Ipad in the middle of the aisle, or up in the air in front of other guests. I love that we’re seeing more and more unplugged ceremonies. Unfortunately, we live in an era where guests have to be told how they can best in the moment, which is to relax and let your professional photographer take all the pics.

  • We’re Pondering Destination Weddings

What is the cost of a destination wedding? This article details the 4 main things that determine the cost of a destination wedding: Location, guest count, decor and time of year. We’ve seen an uptick in destination weddings into the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas. This article gives good food for thought if you are planning your wedding remotely.

  • Millenial Brides are Changing The Wedding Dress Game

Millenial brides are changing up the wedding scene in many ways, including where and how they’re shopping for dresses. This article details how millennials are more concerned about the environment, better with money, and recycling used wedding dresses. This is a great article detailing the current era of brides and how they are driving the resale market.

  • What All My Friends Are Listening To

  • Something we love seeing, as long as they’re not barking up a tree

Pets in weddings! We love how we’re seeing more and more couples include their pets on their big day. But we don’t think they should be included at all costs. Your pet should be trained and cut out for the job (usually walking down the aisle). Know your pet’s temperament and behavior in this type of high stress and high maintenance situation. Otherwise, your cute idea could turn your ceremony or reception into an unnecessary distraction and disaster.
