| PREMIER WEDDING MOBILE WINTER | SPRING 2018


When your guests receive their wedding invitation, they will immediately form an impression of the ceremony to come. That is why selecting the invitation - the paper, the style, the wording - is an important first step in your wedding plans. Experienced stationers are your best guide, and their advice is available at no charge when you purchase your invitations in their store. Not only do stationers offer assistance on the invitations, but they can also provide helpful hints on when to order and mail them while also determining proper postage budgeting and a myriad of other details. Take time to select your invitations and put thought into the decision. Feel the paper samples. What impression do they give? Understated elegance? Fun? Whimsical? Romantic?

Your stationer will know the etiquette for proper wording, including unique situations such as divorced parents, second marriages, professional titles, religious customs, and so on. Envelopes should be hand addressed in black or charcoal gray ink. You may also choose professional hand calligraphy or an automated calligraphy machine for the envelopes.

THE FIRST

impression THE PERFECT INVITATION

To determine how many invitations to order, count each couple and single guest, each attendant, parents, family and clergy. Order extra invitations to handle surprises and extra envelopes for addressing mistakes. Be certain to pre-stamp reply cards, weigh the complete invitation to ensure correct postage and remember to select attractive stamps.

DATE

NIGHTS (that won’t break the wedding budget)

VOLUNTEER TOGETHER Visit a local shelter or charity and serve someone! Not only are you having fun with your fiancé, it’s a great way to give back to your community.

EXPLORE A LOCAL PARK Sometimes the best adventures are right outside your door!

HAVE A GAME NIGHT Ask your friends over and play some good ole fashioned board games. You don’t realize how competitive your friends are until Monopoly comes into the picture!

DIY DAY You know all those pins you’ve saved on pinterest and never tried? Now is the time to get crafty! You can probably find most of the items around your house. P.S. Check out our blog, idoyall.com for a fun paper marbling DIY! It’s oh-so-satisfying.

CHECK OUT OPEN HOUSES NEAR YOU Who doesn’t want to be Joanna Gaines? Why yes, we’ll take the $1,000 house without walls. We can shiplap that. (JK, pls don’t do that, just get an idea of what each of you would like one day.)

WATCH THE WORST MOVIES ON NETFLIX Ask your friends for ideas! Sometimes all you need is a good laugh with the person you love to have a great night. Don’t forget the popcorn.

GRAB A DISPOSABLE CAMERA Walk around your city and take pictures of each other with this oldie but goodie. After you’ve used all 28 of your pics, get them devoloped at a local drugstore. The cloud may fail you, but prints last (almost) forever.

EXERCISE Encouraging each other to be healthy can be a fun way to stay in shape.

CANDICE BROWN wedding & portrait photographer KNOW YOUR DIAMOND

Diamonds are measured by the “F our C s .” All four features can make a dramatic impact on the quality, and therefore price, of a diamond.

KNOW YOUR METALS 14-K arat y ellow G old C lassiC durable for daily wear, polishes easily. w hite G old Made by mixing pure gold with white metals; can be a less-expensive; alternative to platinum.

C ut Proportions of a diamond and its facets, as opposed to its shape. A diamond gets its brilliancy from the cutting which maximizes the reflection of light. C olor White diamonds are graded on a D–Z scale, D being the most colorless.

P latinum Very white; heavy, durable metal; ideal for engraving.

C larity The presence of natural marks, called inclusions, in the gem. The Gemological Institute of America judges clarity based on a standard 11-point scale from “Flawless” through “Imperfect 3.”

P alladium Sister metal to platinum; naturally white metal; strong, non-tarnishing and hypo-allergenic.

C arats Diamonds are weighed in carats, which may also be expressed as “points,” where one carat equals 100 points.

Tips for Choosing

Bridesmaid Dresses

COLOR

FABRIC CHOICE

BRIDAL ENTOURAGE

Do you want everyone in the same color? Are you open to different colors? Would you like to do something new like creating an ombré look?

Decide if you want everyone in the same fabric, or are you open to mixing fabrics to create texture? Mixing textures and using the same color is a great way to create a different look for your bridesmaids. It will give your wedding more of a unique look and feel.

When going bridesmaid dress shopping, bring one or two bridesmaids with you so you don’t have to do the trying on; they can do this and you will have a better idea of how the dresses will look. More than four makes it hard for you to get what you really have in mind for your big day. Pick different sizes and shapes of dresses for your girls to try on so you’ll have a clear idea of what you would like to see on your wedding day.

If you are thinking about mixing colors, the best way to choose the right color for each girl is to think about your bridesmaids’ hair color and skin tones.

STYLE Decide how you want your bridesmaids to complement you and your wedding gown. Do you want all of your bridesmaids in the same style and/or color? Let’s be honest: choosing one dress for all of your bridesmaids to wear will not always look the best on everyone. You have to consider each attendant’s height, weight, body shape. Is anyone expecting in your wedding party? All this effects how the bridesmaids’ gown will look on that bridesmaid.

BE CONSIDERATE Your friends are excited for you and want to be part of your special day. Be conscious of what you are asking of them financially, but also personally.

AFTER THE WEDDING Think about what your bridesmaids can do with the dresses after the wedding. Reusable hues, classic styles and tasteful sequins like dark-colored dresses (black, navy, and neutrals) make it easier to wear again.

34 | PREMIER WEDDING MOBILE WINTER | SPRING 2018

MAID/MATRON OF HONOR A great way to do this is to put her in a print, beaded sash, or a totally different dress than the rest of your bridal party. After all that she has done for you, you want her to feel special and look fabulous.

BE THOUGHTFUL Don’t try to make yourself look better by dressing your bridesmaids in something ugly. You want to choose options that complement you, your wedding, and your gown. You don’t want your bridesmaids to take away from you.

BRIDE AND GROOM TRIVIA Wedding reception games are a great way to keep your guest entertained while you are being photographed before the reception or as they wait for food!

Create a list of trivia questions for each guest to fill out at the table. Have a member of the wedding party collect and read the cards to determine the winner. The guest with the most correct answers wins!

COUPLE MAD LIBS

I SPY

Create a Mad Libs-style template for your guests to fill out at their tables for marriage and love advice. This is a wedding games guests can do alone, or the whole table can get in on the fun, sharing their tips on how to keep the romance alive, fun ideas for “married dates,” and other words of wisdom.

Another fun way to get everyone involved is to place a disposable camera on each guest table with a list of special moments to capture. Each group of family and friends will have a different shot from their perspective. Some examples could be the first dance, “cheers,” table selfie, or just let them choose! You won’t know what you end up with until you take the cameras to be developed!

Nestled within a 15 acre forest, rolling hills, a covered bridge, 3 ponds, & a New Orleans style home lies Bella Sera Gardens, south Alabama’s newest event venue. Enter the old iron gate and walk up the tower steps into a courtyard with lush landscaping, fire & water fountains, 2 fullservice bars and custom seating complete with over-sized hanging beds. Bella Sera offers an “old world” feel with European antique windows, a wrap-around veranda, and 1850’s vintage doors that provide entry to the covered pavilion with open trusses, a double staircase and Italian crystal chandeliers. An adjacent breezeway leads to the groom’s lounge and chef’s kitchen. The private home is available for the bride and bridal Party. Let Bella Sera Gardens provide all the details for your special day.

Encounter the past while celebrating your future. Hold your special day in the History Museum of Mobile’s uniquely picturesque courtyard or atrium. The museum’s iconic marble lobby with historic murals (dating to the 1930’s) is the perfect place to start your event. Make a grand entrance from the monumental marble staircase, socialize with guests, toast the newlyweds and dance the night away in the atrium, formerly home to the Southern Market.
