are among the most fun wedding elements to shop for, especially if you get to taste them ďŹ rst. Most couples start by browsing social media and the internet for photos of cakes they like. This is a great way to get inspiration! As you’re browsing, here are a few things you need to know to guide you towards choosing the perfect wedding cake for you.

35


Will Pursell Photography

36


Many of the photos you see are of cakes covered in fondant. In order to achieve the perfectly smooth exteriors shown in most wedding cake photos, bakers use fondant…a rolled sugar dough type of icing made of sugar and water that can be dyed, flavored and rolled out, then placed on top of the cake. The elaborate decorations like cut out shapes, bows, draping and flowers you see on wedding cakes are often made of fondant too.

37

38


and can be more expensive. Some bakeries prefer to work in fondant, while others prefer to work with buttercream. Be sure to ask these questions prior to your appointment to ensure the bakery will be able to accommodate your preferred form of icing.

39


Bailey Roberts Photography

40


Fondant has a more candy like flavor (though flavoring can be added to it). The texture is often seen as off -putting and your guests may remove it prior to eating the cake. However, most people have a long-standing love of the rich buttery taste of buttercream and a select number of cake artists can achieve a smooth as fondant finish in their buttercream. If taste is as important as design consider using a buttercream finish.

41


Rhodes Studio Photography

42


If you want the taste of buttercream and the smooth ďŹ nish and ornate designs of fondant, speak with your designer about using a smooth buttercream base with the fondant accents added to create your perfect wedding cake.

43

44


regardless of which type of icing you choose. You can enhance the overall flavor of your cake with a delicious filling. Some popular options are buttercream, fruit filling, and mousse.

45

46


about your options, and participate in a tasting if at all possible. That way you can be sure you and your guests will enjoy eating your cake as much as looking at it!

Couples used to take formal, posed engagement photos to post in the local newspaper beside their engagement announcement. While some couples still do this today, the nature of engagement photos has changed a lot over the years. Nowadays engagement photos are infused with creativity and personality, and they’ve become almost as important as the wedding photos themselves. With some help from talented wedding photographer Tab McCausland, we’ve put together 11 tips you need to know before you schedule your engagement photo shoot:

51


52


Start with your wedding photographer. Many wedding photographers oer a special rate on engagement shoots if you’ve already booked their services for your wedding day. This can be a great budget saver and you already know you like their work since you hired them for you big day.

53


54


Pick a setting that suits your personalities. Tab McCausland recommends choosing a location that fits your personality. If you hate snakes, dirt, and basically anything outside, then you shouldn’t choose the woods for your engagement location. Are you both sports fans? Go to a local stadium. Did you meet at a carnival or fair? See if there’s one happening near you. Feel free to be creative!

55


56


Relax. The most successful photos will feature the two of you in the most natural poses possible. In order to achieve that, you have to relax and (did we mention this?) have fun!

57


58


Feel free to use signage. You can do a lot with props, including things like chalkboard signs that say, “I’m marrying him/her” or your wedding date.

59


60


Consider hiring a stylist. This is another wonderful suggestion by Tab. As she points out, there are very few times in your life when you can justify hiring a professional to style you out. Your engagement photo session is one of them! Maybe have your wedding hair and makeup trial run on the day of your engagement shoot.

61


62


Have a theme and relay this to your photographer. This is another helpful tip by Tab. Having a plan for what you want your ďŹ nished product to look like will ensure you will like the end result.

63


64


Choose the right time of day. Most professional photographers will tell you that the best time of day for photos is about an hour before sunset.

65


66


Get a good number of shots. Even if you have an idea for the perfect pose in your head, allow your photographer to take a variety of poses. You never know‌you may decide that you like a picture that you didn’t ever anticipate.

67


68


Figure out what you want to do with your photos. Are you planning to publish a photo in the local paper? If so, ďŹ nd out the required dimensions for the photo. You could also use them for your Save the Dates, social media banners, and for creating keepsakes.

69


70


PDA may be required. Engagement photos are meant to reect your love for each other. It’s likely your photographer will request that you kiss, hug, and get close and comfortable for your photos.

71


72


Style of dress varies. Consider the environment and your level of comfort when deciding how you want to be dressed in your engagement photos. There isn’t a right or wrong here…so wear what suits you. Tab did caution, however, that you don’t want to wear outfits that clash.

73


74


We’re sure everyone will find these tips handy as they plan their engagement photo sessions!

Not sure if utilizing social media is right for your wedding? Here is a pro and con list to help you decide.

PROs • You get to see your wedding through the eyes of your wedding guests. • You don’t have to wait weeks (or months) for your photographs. Instead, you get to browse through your friends photos on Instagram and Facebook immediately. • It allows all of your wedding guests to be a part of your big day. No more worrying about picking select folks to stand beside you, every guest does something.

79


CONS • Wedding guests are constantly looking at their phones instead of experiencing the wedding you planned and paid for. • Wedding guests can get in the way of photographers, which means your professional photos will have cell phones in them. • Even if you wanted to save the images, they will be low-resolution photos (think Instagram size and quality). • Everyone can see the photos, including the not-so-good ones and they can comment on them good or bad.

80

Polish and Pout is a Northern California based team of hair and makeup experts who specialize in bringing the best beauty techniques and knowledge to their clients. We chatted with Jess, one of the experts behind this team, about how brides can get that perfect look for their big day.

82


Q: Are beauty consultations always necessary? A: While there are always exceptions to the rule, I’d say that preview sessions are necessary for brides. It is our opportunity to craft the perfect look for your big day and for you to get to know your beauty team better. It means we will show up on your wedding day not as strangers but as friends. You will be able to sit back and enjoy being taken care of and knowing that everything will be exactly how you want it. There will be no surprises since you have already had the chance to discuss and troubleshoot any issues with the look.

Q: How early do you recommend brides booking a stylist and choosing a style? A: There’s no such thing as too early! Some brides book 18 months out and some 6 months out… but the longer you wait the less likely you are to land the beauty team you want most! Once your date and venue are locked down, there’s no need to wait. As far as choosing styles, you should have your dress purchased and know your colors and the overall vibe of your big day. Your attire definitely plays an integral role in what styles will compliment you most! Your preview appointment should be done closer to the wedding once your details are locked down and your hair is the color and length you want it.

Q: Other than pictures, should a bride bring anything to trial appointments? A: Yes, definitely bring your veil along with any other hair accessories. Also your jewelry for the big day is helpful too! Putting on all your accessories really helps imagine the final look! Wearing white or the color of your wedding attire is helpful too!

83


84


WHAT IS A SAVE THE DATE? SAVE THE DATE is a pre-invitation that officially announces your wedding date and lets guests know that they will, in fact, be invited to the celebration.

REASONS YOU SHOULD SEND SAVE THE DATES PLENTY OF NOTICE Sending out save the dates will make it easier for your wedding guests to plan accordingly with their schedules, jobs, reservations and rentals. UP-TO-DATE DETAILS Save the dates are a great place to include your wedding website. Doing so will keep your outof-town guests up-to-date on hotel blocks, transportation details, local recommendations, etc. SHOW OFF YOUR ENGAGEMENT You’ve had your engagement photos done, now share them with your guests. Select your FAV photo and use it on your save the date. This way your wedding guests will have all the information they need, plus a fabulous photograph to look at on their fridge.

If you send out a save the date and a wedding guest already has something happening that day, there is a good chance they will call and let you know.

The day was filled with lush, upscale details and gorgeous muted colors that were perfect for the season. The bride, groom and wedding party made their final preparations at the Waterstone Resort and Marina in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida before heading to the waters edge, the site of the first look. Brittney and Ryan had their first look on the shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean. Afterwards the couple and their wedding party made their way to The Addison for the ceremony and reception. Flowers were dripping from the archways and ceilings which made the entire event absolutely breathtaking. Every detail was perfection - From Brittney’s all-white peony bouquet to the assorted pink bridesmaids dresses, every detail accented one another perfectly.

Most people think of wedding planning as a lengthy process. For a number of reasons, such as needing to spread out payments, or certain venues and vendors booking up well in advance, having months to plan your wedding is almost a must. If you’re a couple who ½nds yourself in a situation where you’re planning a lastminute wedding (due to military deployment, for example), here are some tips to help you with your planning: 91


Establish the budget. Set your overall budget and make sure you’re clear on any parameters set by ½nancial contributors, such as speci½c guests they want invited. Make the guest list. Narrow the list down as much as possible and don’t second-guess yourself. It’s time to make quick decisions. Invite your wedding party. Try a personal invitation or set up a lunch date with the attendants you’d like to invite and ask them there. Find the venue and set the date. Start with venues that ½t the look you want to achieve. Be ¾exible with the date and time.

Visit Head Over Heels for more tips, Just search {Last Minute Wedding}. 92


93


We’re looking at what’s hot now and what’s on the horizon in men’s wedding fashion. Whether you’re a groom or a guest, you’re sure to get inspired by this list. Find more fashion trends at Head Over Heels. 94


1. Grooms in white.

Who says the bride is the only one who should wear white to the wedding? Today’s fashion experts urge grooms to do the same.

2. Facial hair.

Light facial hair or scruff has become quite fashionable for grooms and groomsmen.

3. Powder blue accents.

Powder blue has been one of the most popular accent colors for grooms. If you’re gravitating towards a powder blue suit, we recommend going with just the blue jacket and pairing it with black pants for a more timeless look.

4. Bow ties.

Bow ties have been a trend for a few years now and we don’t see that changing any time soon. This enduring neckwear offers either a formal or fun look depending on the fabric and pattern you choose.

5. Or no tie at all.

It has become more fashionable for grooms to forgo their neckties and wear collared shirts paired with vests or a jacket. This look is best suited to more casual weddings. Stick to ties for formal affairs.

6. Satin lapels.

In a nod to proms and formals of yesteryear, wedding fashion designers have introduced suits pairing more than one fabric, such as wool jackets with satin lapels.

7. Red!

Bright, popping red has also started trending. If you’re a groom who doesn’t want to be missed, this may be the accent color (or, if you’re really bold, the suit jacket color) for you! 95


Wake up, it’s your wedding day! Set the mood while playing throwbacks, classics and new hits as you and your wedding party get ready. This pre-wedding playlist is all you need to warm up your dancing shoes before you hit the dance oor with your soon-to-be spouse. Pair this playlist with a glass of bubbly to put some added pep in your step for the big day ahead.

The

n w o d w o g L n i p p i T on WEDDING VENDORS by Susan Southerland

110


The vendors who work with you on your wedding assume most of the responsibility of making sure you and your future spouse have the most amazing day of your lives. They spend a lot of time before - and sometimes after - the wedding seeing that everything comes together perfectly for you. If you’d like to thank one or more of your wedding vendors for their hard work with a tip but you’re not sure how much or when to tip them, here’s a guide to help you:

• STYLING SERVICES.

It’s customary to tip your stylist or barber 15 to 20 percent of their fee, and the tip should be added to their payment at the time of service.

• OFFICIANT.

If you’re using an officiant at your house of worship, you would most commonly make a contribution to that place of worship ($100-$250 is average). If you’re using a private officiant, they’re usually paid a direct fee and tipping is optional. $50- $100 is the recommended range.

• WEDDING PLANNER.

If you’d like to recognize exceptional service by your wedding planner, either present the tip to him or her at the end of the wedding day or in a thank you note after your honeymoon. The recommended range is $100-$500 (depending on how long the wedding planner is working with you beforehand and on the big day). 111


• MUSICIANS.

If you have a band, the average tip is $25-$35 per musician. DJs and emcees average a tip of $50-$100. Tips are typically presented to them at the end of the reception.

• PHOTOGRAPHERS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS.

Tips for vendors who work for themselves may vary from those who work for a big company (because the individuals tend to earn more per event). An average tip for individuals is $50-$100 and the average for employees is a little higher at $100-$200.

• CATERER AND SETUP TEAMS.

These behind-the-scenes staff members are typically tipped in the contracts you sign for them. Review all of your contracts to see which include gratuities and which don’t so you know whether or not to tip someone.

Beautiful Ways to Remember Those No Longer With You at Your Wedding by Susan Southerland

113


Weddings are joyous occasions, which can sometimes make it even more difficult when people we love can’t be there. If you ďŹ nd yourself in this position, there are some wonderful things you can do to honor those loved ones. Here are a few ideas: 114


1

Reserve them a seat. Place a rose and photo of your loved one on the seat they would have taken if they were there.

2

Sew fabric with their name(s) into your wedding attire. Have the fabric sewn inside your clothing near your heart so they’re with you symbolically throughout the day.

3

Create a display with photos of your loved ones. Write a sweet and touching quote on a chalkboard.

4

Set up a table at your ceremony or reception. Place framed photographs of your loved ones. You can decorate it with a pretty floral arrangement, maybe including sprigs of rosemary for remembrance.

5

Make a donation in their name. Choose a charitable organization that has meaning to you or your loved one and make a donation. Add a note of the donation in your programs

6

Dance for them. Choose a special song and have the DJ or emcee play it in their honor. Then do your best to get every guest out onto the dance floor. 115
