07 Mar 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

After years of being traumatized by poufy sleeves which were larger then their faces, brides have made a sharp turn away from wedding gowns with sleeves. Don’t worry: you will look nothing like Princess Diana in the newest wedding gowns with sleeves. This is how the trend towards bridal gowns with sleeves showing up in some of the prettiest weddings around. Over time, however, the religious reasons for wearing wedding gowns with sleeves have faded, and the strapless gown is by far the most popular option for brides. In fact, if a bride wanted to wear a wedding gown with sleeves, whether it was for religious reasons, to cover tattoos, or just a matter of personal preference, she often had to resort to having a gown custom made or wearing a jacket over a sleeveless gown.

Everything comes around eventually in fashion, however, and the sleeve has finally started to show up again in bridal collections. Although strapless gowns are likely to retain their immensely popular status, they are no longer the only option. One of the prettiest wedding gowns with sleeves. Lace sleeves are one of the up-and-coming trends, as they offer the classic beauty and modesty of sleeves, but retain a light and airy feeling thanks to the openwork of the lace. For brides who like the idea of sleeves paired with a more seductive cut gown, try one with sleeves which open into a keyhole back on the bodice. Monique Lhullier specializes in that design, and others offer it as well. This type of wedding gown with sleeves can be the perfect blend of modesty and drama for a modern bride.

The Best Wedding Planning Timeline

07 Mar 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

The Best Wedding Planning Timeline : Wedding Planning Timeline

The best way to plan a wedding is to ensure that you have enough time to do so. As such, experts advise on having at least a year’s worth of planning time to come out with the most appropriate wording for you. An appropriate wedding planning checklist is divided into months. Each period has its own activities that should be done and completed adequately.

Wedding Planning Timeline 10 to 12 months Before

This period deals with the general essentials of a wedding. The first thing is usually to announce your engagement to friends and family. A couple should start by setting a suitable budget for their wedding. Set a date, venue and register for these. Select your wedding party in terms of maids and groomsmen. Set a guest list. Create invitations. The bride should find a suitable dress. Pick the wedding officiant and preferably hire a wedding planner if need be. If you can’t afford or do not want a planner, get your friends and family members to help you but make sure you specify your needs.

7-9 months

From this period henceforth, the couple should get into the details of the wedding. The bride should find someone to make her dress or find the best place to buy it. The bride’s maids’ dresses should also be ordered. The bride and bridal party should shop for shoes, make-up and accessories. Carry out a research on the best hotels to book your out-of-town guests into. Hire a photographer and/or a videographer. Hire a DJ and/or a music band. Hire a florist.

5-6 months

Send invitations to your guests for them to save the date for you. Decide on the floral arrangements with your florist. The groom and his groom’s men should order their suits at this point since the intricacies of suits are not usually overwhelming. The bride should hire a beauty specialist and test the beauty options for the wedding day. Pick your choice of music for the wedding. Look into your options for a honeymoon destination and decide on the best. Carry out a cake tasting and menu tasting party with your wedding party. Order your cake and menu from appropriate specialists.

2-4 months

This period in the wedding planning timeline entails finalizing the details of the wedding. The couple should meet with vendors and finalize the details about the floral designs, favors, cake and menu. Finalize ceremony details with the officiant. Fill out the necessary marriage documents.

1 month

By the last month, the wedding plans should be almost done. The bride, groom and their party should do a final fitting of their attire. Work on your wedding vows if need be. Decide on the seating plan of the wedding. Confirm honeymoon reservations. With the help of your photographer, decide on the most important shots to be taken. Make all the necessary payments.

Wedding week

During the last week, all wedding plans should be ready. The couple should go over the details of everything with the concerned parties. Book yourselves for a spa treatment to ease out the tension of the wedding plans. The couple should always have a plan B for items such as the reception, cake and honeymoon to avoid disappointments. Also, emphasize on details for maximum results. With this wedding planning checklist, couples will be well on their way towards having the best wedding they ever dreamed of.

33 Ways to Reduce the Cost of Your Wedding by Stacking Savings

Savings Secret #7 in Dream Wedding on a Dime; 7 Secrets for the Budget-Savvy Bride  is “Stack and Save.” What you ultimately pay from your budget shrinks proportionately when you find multiple ways to lower the cost of items or services—shopping for the best value plus getting an added discount, having others pitch in on the cost of a purchase, or finding ways to use less.Here are 33 ideas for taking more than one approach to savings on the same aspect of your wedding.

  1. Look for ways multiple parties can contribute to the cost of the same item or service, such as both getting a discount from the vendor and receiving partial payment for the service as a gift from a relative.
  2. Save by both spending less for and using less of an item.
  3. Consider using multiple services from a vendor or her associates, which often results in savings versus going with two unassociated vendors.
  4. Combine savings by using sparkling wine (as opposed to champagne) and giving guests the choice of using their own drinks for the toast or passing out only a token amount.
  5. Have a potluck meal, where the guests bring the food. (Only at very informal receptions, though!)
  6. Limit the liquor to a signature drink, then buy the alcohol at a discount.
  7. Purchase liquor at a warehouse club store, then control the alcohol content by mixing the drinks in bulk ahead of time and having guests serve themselves from a dispenser at a drink station.
  8. Buy used fancier display stands, and then resell them
  9. Buy apothecaries or other glass containers in bulk at wholesale prices, and then resell them on eBay after the wedding.
  10. Combine centerpieces and dessert by assembling mini-towers of cupcakes, cookies, or brownies and displaying them on guest tables.
  11. Make desserts the favors by setting up a candy or dessert bar with take-home bags, boxes, and seals for guests to help themselves.
  12. Use flowers from the ceremony to decorate the cake and/or cake table at the reception.
  13. Buy bulk flowers and materials for DIY.

  19. Look for products that will serve double or triple purposes.
  20. Use coupon codes on sale items whenever possible.
  21. Always shop with a cash-back credit card.
  22. Sell old jewelry to raise ring money.
  23. Choose the Bridesmaids’ handbags ahead of time and then wait for sales at the already low-priced stores.
  24. Buy one of a kind or non-matching clutches from multiple sources.
  25. Look for faux fur or other special-occasion coats during cool-weather clearance, usually January or February.
  26. Use the same decorations at both the ceremony and reception.
  27. Incorporate table numbers into the centerpieces.
  28. Combine favors and name tags or escort cards.
  29. Combine centerpieces with desserts and/or favors.

DIY Fingertip Veil with Blusher with Step By Step info!

07 Mar 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

DIY Fingertip Veil with Blusher with Step By Step info!

I recently took on the project of making my own veil and boy am I glad. It turned out to be quite a bit simpler than I expected and the end result turned out great! Since a lot of these DIY posts show the hard work of fellow bees but don’t necessarily give instructions on how to achieve the same results, I thought I’d share the steps I followed for mine.

First, some tips. All tulle is not created equal, but it’s all crazy cheap. I didn’t want a super crunchy veil, so I shopped around and fondled at least 12 different bolts of fabric until I found one that felt delicate enough. Most were the same price, but there were obvious differences in quality.

The tools required for this project are really basic, but it’s incredibly important that you have a nice pair of fabric scissors. I can’t stress this enough – the junk-drawer pair from Office Depot will leave you frustrated and your veil frayed. Aside from that, you need some thread, a measuring tape, a large clean surface to work on, and a comb or headband to attach your veil to.

Wedding Photography Tips For A Memorable Shoot

Wedding Photography Tips For A Memorable Shoot : Wedding Photography

Getting into the boots of a photographer on an occasion such as a wedding can be great fun. This will be an occasion where you can have fun and at the same time flaunt your photography skills. There is no denying that the industry is filled with professionals in this field, but the fact remains that in order to document this occasion in pictures, you do not need to be a pro at all.

Here are few wedding photography tips for amateurs and pros alike:

1. Know the couple’s expectations from wedding photographs

Get in touch with the couple to know their mind and make sure you know exactly what do they want from the day. They may want to lay more emphasis on candid photography with you being around all day or only want good formal pictures. Ask them how formal do they want the photographs to be; will a line up outside the church suffice or there is something else in their mind?

2. Take the essentials first

Do not get carried away by the inventive genius in you. Make sure that you have taken the shots that the couple has asked you to take before you move on to other less important shots. The photographer’s role is to preserve the day’s essence and memories so that they can be relived whenever wanted. After you have captured the essentials, say the cake cutting ceremony from the perfect setting you can exercise your more wedding photography ideas and turn to the amazing architecture, buildings and other stuff that merits an attention.

3. Pay attention to formal shots

It is necessary to get the formal shots right because they are the most important shots of the day. Choose a good location for such shoots. If it is dry outside, outdoors will make a wonderful location for a formal shoot. However, do keep a backup indoor location in mind which gives you adequate light for a good picture in case it rains. Ensure that you bring along your tripod as well as the list of the shots that dictates who is to be featured in each shot. It is wise to employ a helper to make sure that all the members required for a particular shot have arrived so that you can call for everybody’s attention to look your way and smile.

4. Try not to switch off.

The wedding ceremony continuously provides opportunities for abundant informal shots, especially in between the major events when people get relaxed. It is therefore essential that you do not get carried away by free drinks and people around to chat to. Pay attention to your job for a moment that passes once does not come back ever.

5. Take some time away from the crowd with the couple

Offer some time for the newlyweds away from the reception. If possible get them to walk hand in hand and shoot when they are not conscious of your presence around. This will give you some real candid moments to capture.

6. Have a backup camera with a different lens

Have a second camera to backup for the main one and shoot simultaneously with both. This will give you more options to choose from for a single photograph and avoid losing a captured moment because of some imperfection in the picture.

These 6 tips will go a long way in letting you shoot wedding photographs that shall be an asset for a lifetime.

How to Make a Wedding Veil, Video and Written Instructions

06 Mar 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Ideas

If you are like many budget-minded brides, you are uncomfortable with paying a lot for the veil you want. The good news is you don’t have to. There are discount veils available, but you can also DIY. Below is a series of tutorials on how to make a wedding veil, step-by-step. You can watch videos and/or read instructions, whichever you prefer.
How to make a wedding veil. Videos and step-by-step instructions.
If you are thinking you do not have the talent to do this, think again. The number one rule for my do-it-yourself videos is I have to be able to do it all by myself. On the 10-point “craftiness” scale I am a 2-3. So if I can do it, you can too.

What’s in this “How to Make a Veil” DIY?

An overview of my five-step veil making process follows. Plus, there are additional videos detailing those steps and a few considerations. There is a corresponding transcript with each step as well.

Here is an outline of the contents, followed by the make a veil overview video:

  • Step 1: Measuring and cutting veil fabric with your own, home made pattern. You can use things you already have around the house.
  • Step 2: Making your blusher (if you want one). I show you how to make the blusher a part of the veil, but you can just as easily leave it off or make it detachable.
  • Step 3: Gluing embellishments such as rhinestones, crystals, pearls, edging, or other decorations. This is the part that makes many paid-for veils expensive.
  • Step 4: Putting gathers in your veil. It is easier than it sounds!
  • Step 5: Sewing on a veil comb. This makes it convenient to securely attach the veil to your hair.
