EDITOR

The moment your guy asks you to be his forever is a heart-racing, knock-the-wind-out-of-you moment. Within the next few moments you’re speechless. You realize you have hundreds of decisions to make. All have to be just the right ones so you’ll have the wedding you’ve dreamed of since you were a little girl. This is where Premier Bride comes in to help! Sit down with a cup of coffee and thumb through Premier Bride; we have made getting started easy and planning your wedding less stressful. Want to know some of the designers you can Ànd at your local bridal boutique? Premier Bride has a guide for that. Want options for your bridal registry? Premier Bride has a guide for that. Not sure where to have your reception, how many people the venue will hold, or if a facility offers indoor and outdoor options for your ceremony and reception? Premier Bride has two guides for that…the Venue Guide and the Reception & Rehearsal Dinner Guide. Curious about cakes, style and color for bridesmaids’ dresses, tuxedo vs. suit, lighting, favors, Áowers, photography, event design? Spend some time looking at the details of Premier Bride’s forty-eight featured weddings and three rehearsal dinners. Hopefully, seeing all these incredible weddings and rehearsal dinners will inspire your imagination for your own wedding. We have included another round of “Love It! Love It! Love It!” in this issue with spreads covering party dresses, shoes, cakes, and other wedding items. Be sure to check out the latest wedding trend, “Big, Bold, Bright”. A blushing bride needs a gown; in the Style File, you’ll Ànd a gorgeous selection of gowns, all of which can be found in Mississippi bridal boutiques. Additionally, “Tips from the Pros” offers planning advice from local wedding professionals. Also, look for the Premier Bride “Best Of” logo found on several ads. This logo means that brides attending our bridal shows voted the business as either Best Booth or Best Tablescape. Congratulations to our cover bride winner this issue, Elysia Helton -ackson. She garnered the most votes from the Àve cover Ànalists. The competition was tough. All the covers were as stunning as the brides and weddings featured. See Elysia and Ramon’s beautiful wedding beginning on page 13. I wish you a wedding day that exceeds all your expectations, but, even more, a life that continually takes your breath away.

Touring Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest venue, Ice House Alley :areKouses, PaGe Pe tKink Eack to wKen I Ă&#x20AC;rst Pet Py husband, Johnny. We met in Little Rock, Arkansas, where we both were living at the time, at a place called the Ice House. Back in the olden, olden days, every city and town had an ice house. I remember my parents and grandparents talking about how blocks of ice would be delivered to their homes and put in their refrigerators. Little Rock, Arkansas, very similar to Jackson, Mississippi, was no different. I was at a party at the Ice House with a fabulous Motown band. (Did I tell you how much I love to dance?) In walks my husband with a mutual friend. The party was sponsored by a group, By Invitation Only, of which I was a founding member and membership chairman. I was at the front door greeting everyone and collecting money. It was a member/guest party. Our friend, Geno, was the member and Johnny was the guest. Johnny kept coming up and asking me to dance. I told him when I Ă&#x20AC;nished my duties at the door, I would Ă&#x20AC;nd him and we would dance. Johnny was sitting at a table with six women. I went up to him and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready for my dance, now!â&#x20AC;? That was the start of a wonderful adventure that is still continuing. Seven weeks later we were married. That was 27 years ago. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite the surprise wedding like we featured on pages 26 and 27, but it was still a surprise for our friends. Johnny and I truly believe that God brought us together. There is not a day that goes by that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get on my knees and thank God for his gift to me, Johnny Jungkind. God does not make mistakes. Knowing this has gotten us

through some difĂ&#x20AC;cult and tragic times. We were meant to be togetherâ&#x20AC;Śtwo become one. Overall, our love and devotion to each other combined with our undying commitment has made our marriage stronger as a couple and us better as individuals. My prayer for you as you embark on this new chapter in your life is that you, too, will have a strong union of love, devotion and commitment. My prayer for you is that you will have an endless adventure. My prayer for you is that your love and faith in God and each other will guide you and there will only be sunny skies. All the wedding professionals featured in Premier Bride are the top in the industry. They are knowledgeable, creative, professional and meet the highest standards. We encourage you to contact them and use them for your wedding. As always, we love the feedback about how helpful Premier Bride has been in planning your wedding. Be sure you tell our Premier Bride wedding professionals that you heard about them in Premier Bride! Keep Premier Bride with you and make notes in the planning section and throughout the publication as Premier Bride will become a treasured keepsake of your special wedding day. Best wishes andâ&#x20AC;Ś God Bless!

...help for choosing the physician who’s right for you... Everything is in place for your wedding—the most exquisite gown, the tastiest cake, beautiful flowers, the perfect man; but one critical piece of the puzzle is missing – who will be your physician once you are married? With all the excitement happening all around you, maybe you have not considered this very important question. Whether you will be relocating to a new area after your marriage or if you have never been to see an obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) and feel nervous about your first visit, most local hospitals can help you. Physician Referral Service is a great resource for finding a doctor. You can easily and quickly find a physician according to your specific wants and needs by either calling the Physician Referral Service or by going to that hospital’s website. “The first OB-GYN visit may be a bit uncomfortable, but most physicians realize that and try their best to put you at ease,” explained Ob/Gyn Erica Ory, MD, of the Woman’s Clinic and Baptist Medical Center. “One way to find a physician is by explaining each step of the visit before it occurs. Patients are able to relax and concentrate on what’s important—getting the care and the information needed to manage your health as you begin marriage.” In discussing an initial Ob/Gyn visit, Dr. Ory said, “This visit will include a consultation with the physician to discuss patient history and any concerns or questions the patient may have. Also during this visit vital signs (temperature, pulse, and blood pressure), a urine sample, and a blood sample will be taken, and the physician will perform a pelvic exam, as well as a pap smear.” Your first Ob/Gyn visit should be at least three to six months before your wedding to ensure there are no complications.

Your Ob/Gyn is the best person to discuss with you the various options for birth control. Birth control comes in different forms: The pill, the patch, and the ring—all combination hormonal birth control. A birth control shot, which may cause irregular or no cycles. An intrauterine device, which is inserted for longterm contraception for approximately three to ten years. A reversible implant that is placed under the skin Condoms and diaphragms (old “tried and true” methods)

Another topic you might want to discuss with your OB/GYN is vaccinations. A new vaccine to consider is the HPV vaccine. It can protect against four specific strains of the human papillomavirus that cause up to 95% of cervical cancer and is administered in a series of three injections over six months. As of October 2012, Baptist Medical Center is one of six hospitals in the nation that has earned two prestigious Joint Commission recognitions for our Birthplace services, the Disease Specific Certification in Preterm Labor and in Prematurity. You may not even be thinking about pregnancy at this time, but choosing the right Ob/Gyn and the hospital they practice at is a very important decision that you want to make now.

Real Talk from Real Doctors, With a Quick Click The physicians at Baptist Health Systems in Jackson, Miss. want to share their knowledge with you. And, with Baptist’s Healthy Life Podcast you can hear them discuss a wide range of health and medical topics. Each installment features a different specialist offering helpful up-to-date expertise, in a way that everybody can understand. Stream or download any episode of Baptist’s Healthy Life Podcast and hear answers straight from a doctor’s mouth. Just visit mbhs.org/healthylife or search on iTunes search, Baptist Healthy Life Podcasts.

...let them eat cake!... Yum! This is one of my favorite parts of wedding planning…choosing the cakes. In most cases, you are not choosing just one cake, but two cakes…the wedding cake and the groom’s cake. Here are some tips to help you in choosing your sweets. • If you decide on a basic tiered cake, but you can’t decide on what flavor, use different flavors/fillings for each layer to appeal to more tastes. Note: When you do this, you may need to order more cake, because your guests will want to try more flavors. • Mmmm Chocolate! For years, the groom’s cake has been scrumptious chocolate…milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or a combination of chocolates. Something new for the chocolate lovers: • S’mores’ bar: where guests can roast marshmallows over an artificial or real fire, depending on your reception location and its fire codes. The s’mores’ bar provides guests a chance to visit while preparing their own scrumptious treats. • Chocolate fountains have been around for a while but they are still popular. Choose from a variety of chocolates for dipping…milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. Give your guests lots of choices for dipping: strawberries, marshmallows, cream puffs, pretzels, apples, and much, MUCH more! • Cheese cakes with various flavors and/or various toppings have sometimes been used as the wedding cake, but more so, the groom’s cake. Cakes are placed on heightdifferentiated tiers to create a beautiful and tasty display.

• Accompany the wedding cake with alternatives such as cream puffs, tarts, and/or chocolate dipped strawberries. This is a great way to please any sweet tooth at your wedding. • Set one small cake at each guest table instead of a centerpiece. This is a unique and edible centerpiece for each table! (If children are invited this may not be the best choice.) • Are you on a tight, tight budget? Have only the top layer of your cake real (the rest made of Styrofoam) and then serve a less expensive sheet cake. This way you can have a beautiful cake for presentation while keeping your costs down. • Make your cake topper unique to you by using figurines that show your personality. Some companies will even specially make figurines in your likeness! • If you and your groom have very different tastes, try two small his-and-her cakes, the bride’s cake being white and fancy and the groom’s ‘tuxedo style’ in a black and white. • Many brides and grooms are choosing to have a full groom’s cake that reflects something important to him: a stag for the hunter; a football helmet of his favorite team or player; a cooler of his favorite beer, or a guitar for the musician. Let the groom show off his interest or hobbies by having smaller groom’s cakes surround the actual wedding cake: a football-shaped cake, a cake of his favorite car, a whimsical fish-shaped cake. This can be fun and a great conversation piece. • Add more meaning to the cake moment by personally serving a piece to one another's parents after you've fed each other.

...custom cake toppers... UNIQUE AND ONE-OF-A-KIND

Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brides are opting for a unique, one-of-a-kind cake topper. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to settle for a generic couple to grace your nuptial torte. Many couples meet with artists or craftsmen and commission a piece that has personal meaning to them. Some choose a personalized bride & groom for the top of their wedding cake. A customized cake topper will turn a picture of you and your intended into a lovely piece of art; these are oneof-a-kind and handcrafted of porcelain. Guided by photographs, these personalized cake-toppers are sculpted as replicas of the couple, often wearing the same elaborate wedding clothes as the couple will don on their wedding day. Some couples may choose to have their personalized piece embellished with genuine diamond jewelry. For a fun twist on the bride and groom cake topper, the couple may wish to have themselves featured in a favorite hobby, such as riding a motorcycle. Many couples also commission artisans and craftsmen for original toppers that have sentimental value: a pair of love doves, a pair of bulldogs, a pair of cowboy boots. You may elect to get creative and have your nuptial initial fashioned into a customized cake topper made of any variety of materials: grapevines, metal, crystal or glass, bling, wood, chrome, porcelain, pottery, the list is limitless. A customized cake top is a great conversation piece and as permanent as the video. In fact, these unique cake toppers can be used over and over for special anniversary celebrations and even be handed down as heirlooms.

{PINE BELT}

...the pine belt... The southeast region of Mississippi, also known as the Pine Belt, is made up of several neighboring communities: Collins, Columbia, Ellisville, Laurel, and, of course, Hattiesburg. While the “Hub City” is the fourth largest municipality in the state and prides itself on economic development, education, and the arts, nearby cities are celebrated in their own right. Each boasts entertainment, shopping, and recreation for planning and hosting weddings. Brides getting married in Columbia, Collins, or Ellisville will find businesses that are accustomed to planning rehearsal dinners, weddings, and receptions, regardless of whether the bride and groom prefer a grand wedding that rivals a Hollywood production or an intimate affair for close friends and family. These cities feature longtime merchants that offer decorative accents, attendants’ gifts, unique floral designs, and the best in southern cuisine (eclectic or traditional). Guests will fully appreciate the small town atmosphere as they enjoy a casual lunch at a local café followed by an afternoon of antiquing. Perhaps guests with children will frolic at the Grand Paradise Water Park in Collins or canoe the Okatoma Creek. Others may find an event of interest at the Columbia Exposition Center or at Jones County Community College. In nearby Laurel, couples can choose from several antebellum homes along the oak-lined streets of the city’s Central Historic District to host their ceremony and/or reception. Visitors can immerse themselves in southern hospitality by staying at a cottage or bed and breakfast. In this lovely town, the entire wedding party will find exquisite attire;

PREMIER BRIDE

additionally, the couple can begin a bridal registry and find lovely gifts for their attendants. In their spare time, guests can share a picnic in the park, browse the shops at Sawmill Square Mall, see the latest collection at the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art, or take advantage of local recreation while fishing at Lake Bogue Homa, camping at Big Creek Water Park, or golfing at Bear Creek Club. Finally, Hattiesburg, home to the University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey College, is conveniently located less than 100 miles from Jackson, the Gulf Coast, Mobile, and New Orleans. The “Hub City” allows a couple to shop for invitations, register for gifts, or rent anything under the sun from decorative accents for the ceremony to tents for an outdoor reception. Hattiesburg has its share of leisurely activities and culture, with musical and theatrical productions at the Saenger Theatre and the Hattiesburg Civic Light Opera, symphonic concerts at USM, and fine dining with dishes prepared by some of the South’s most prominent chefs. Guests interested in a little adventure, will enjoy running, biking, hiking, and horseback riding at the 41 mile Long Leaf Trace. Regardless of which Pine Belt city couples choose for planning or hosting their nuptial events, each is unique in that everything is at one’s fingertips and the services provided are personal, creating an affair to remember. In addition, southeast Mississippi gives guests the opportunity to indulge in all that these communities have to offer: shopping at an arts and crafts festival, enjoying a relaxing lunch prepared by a culinary artist, visiting a museum, or taking in a round of golf.

...photography... C APTURI NG THE MOMENT You want to look back on your wedding photos and think, “These are great photos!” As a bride, you want the very best pictures taken on your wedding day. Here are some tips that are a must when your photographer is taking those ever-sospecial photos. PHOTO OP: When choosing a photographer, make sure that you know exactly what you want, and know how many photographers you will need to capture your special day. Some of the most popular must-have shots include: • The bride getting ready • The bride and her bridesmaids candid shots • The groom getting ready • The groom and his groomsmen candid shots • When the father of the bride sees her for the first time • When the mother of the bride sees her for the first time • The bride walking down the aisle • The groom’s reaction when he sees the bride for the first time • Giving the bride away • Taking vows, and exchanging rings • The Kiss • Walking down the aisle as husband and wife • Leaving the ceremony • First dance • Leaving the reception • Detail shots of your bouquet, cake, gown, shoes, rings, food, venue, flowers and décor, lighting, favors, and anything else that is unique to your wedding. There are plenty of other shots that can be taken throughout your wedding day, just make sure you have plenty of the above shots to include in your wedding album; you will not regret it.

PHOTOGRAPHY TRENDS: You want your photographer to be able to tell a story while taking gorgeous photos of your wedding day. Proposal: One of the most popular photography trends would be the proposal photos. Grooms have somehow read the

42

PREMIER BRIDE

bride’s mind, and thought, “Maybe it would be nice to capture the moment of our proposal.” Thus the proposal pictures were born. One of the most beautiful moments of the whole wedding process is when you get engaged. It is a story that is told over and over again throughout your married life; having a photo of that moment helps convey what words cannot. Why not have your photographer present? Photo Journalistic: The photo journalistic approach is a very popular trend. This entails shooting from a far, letting the bride and groom tell the story, without interruption of their special day. Vintage Shots: Vintage shots are becoming increasingly popular. Whether they are sepia toned or black and white, these photos are show stoppers. And More: Edgy wedding photos are also becoming popular, due to the increased amount of “ink” that the bride and groom have, as well as their bridal party. Edgy photos are typically set in black and white settings, sometimes at night. They can be eerie, but always look stunning. Groups jumping, such as the bride and her bridesmaids, the groom and his groomsmen, or both groups together, offer a fun photo op and a nice contrast to the more formal shots typically seen in wedding portraits. The panoramic shot is always fun to look at, so you can see each and every guest that attended. The newest fun trend is the horror shot, where the bridal party appears to be running from something big and scary: dinosaurs, Star Wars Storm Troopers, or even an erupting volcano. UNCONVENTIONAL PHOTOS: Do you like to swim or hike? Do you live near a railroad track or a race track? There are many different ways to get that unconventional shot, including kissing while underwater in a pool or lying on the beach. If you have a favorite board game such as Scrabble, why not get the letters, L, V, and E, and spell out LOVE, making the engagement ring the O. Does your wedding gown have a corset back? If so, lace up your gown and have your engagement ring in the laces, to get the gorgeous and unconventional ring shot. Do you and your future husband love getting coffee or ice cream? Take your wedding photos at the local creamery or coffee shop while enjoying a treat, just please don't spill any on you! The sky is the limit for unconventional shots; make sure to infuse your personality in these photos. Make sure to have these shots done after the ceremony, possibly after the honeymoon, so that you can relax, get the dress cleaned, and have fun! THE PHOTO BOOTH: One of the most popular trends in bridal in the past couple of years has been the photo booth. They are fun, portable, and create a playful atmosphere at the reception. With the use of props and lighting, the photo booth can allow you and your guests to let loose at the reception. Most of the time, the photo booth creates two sets of the pictures; if your guests choose to leave one set at your wedding, use it in your guest book and laugh for years to come! Many photo booths offer a wedding book of you and your guests having fun in the booth. Photo booths are very customizable, with different backdrops, color or black and white prints, and props. The sky is the limit when it comes to props, so make sure to have plenty of random objects. You just never know what


PREMIER BRIDE

43


C A P T U R I NG TH E M OM ENT combination you will find in the photos! Some of the best props used in photo booths are feather boas, sunglasses, hats, and mustaches. Chalkboards or dry erase boards would also be a great addition to your photo booth props, so that you will have a personalized message for your pictures. Have some large frames for the booth, even your new initials, and make sure as the bride and groom that you make an appearance at the photo booth. Photo booths are extremely fun and not very expensive; take advantage of this growing trend, it is sure to please everybody! THE BRIDAL PORTRAIT: This type of photography had died out for quite some time but is quickly making a comeback. These are portraits taken of the bride a few weeks prior to the wedding; the shoot can be done at the ceremony site (if the site’s calendar allows) or at a location that is special to you. The bridal portrait is done for two main reasons: to save time on the wedding day, and, of course, to have just another excuse to wear your wedding gown! Bridal portraits are synonymous with the “South” but are making their way around the world. When bridal portraits were first started, they were hand painted, so that years down the road they would create a wonderful feeling of nostalgia between the bride and her family. Bridal portraits are also a great trial run, for not only you, but also your photographer, hair stylist, and make-up artist; this is the time to make final tweaks to your bridal look before the big day. This is also a great time to see what your florist has planned for your bouquet. The bridal portraits are meant to be fun, while providing you with some memorable shots for your wedding day. CHOOSING THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER: When you get engaged, it is one of the happiest times in your life. You want to choose a great photographer to capture each and every moment of your big day. When planning your wedding, choosing a photographer should be at the top of the list, along with the dress, date, and venue. Start searching for a photographer immediately. Look around the area where you are getting married, and read each photographer’s reviews. Most photographers now have a website in which they display their portfolio. Some even have blogs to follow. A good photographer will display their best work, and will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Make sure that you meet with potential photographers as soon as you can, so that you can discuss: photo opportunities, see their particular photo style, what services they offer, and the type of equipment they will be using (especially if you have certain expectations with a photographer). Know exactly what price point you are looking for in a photographer, as well as pricing for your pictures after the wedding. Include any post-wedding charges in your budget so you don’t have to worry about this later. How many photographers will be shooting your wedding and reception? Sometimes, it is best to have more than one photographer, so that every moment is captured and up to your expectations as a couple, which is essential to creating that feeling of being in the moment, even if some guests could not make it. Ultimately, do your homework, read the reviews, and talk to other brides or friends to determine who is worthy of capturing your special day.

…10 photo tips!... FROM HIRING THE PHOTOGRAPHER THROUGH THE RECEPTION 1. When looking for a photographer, ask to see pictures from one complete wedding rather than the “best of” collection. 2. A good test for a photographer is the engagement photo. Pay attention to his/her communication style and whether or not you are treated professionally. Is this person willing to work with you? Do you love the results? Is the customer service excellent? Don’t sign up for the package deal until you’ve seen the end result. 3. Your photographer will, in fact, become your third wheel so make sure you “click” with and are comfortable with this person. Also make sure that you have complete trust in your photographer. If you don’t have that trust you could spend the entire day giving orders. 4. Ask your photographer to have a little set-up for somewhat formal pictures for your guests. (A small backdrop, stool, light, and camera stand should suffice.) 5. Ask someone specifically, in advance, to play photographer at different occasions leading up to the wedding including the fittings, showers, and rehearsal dinner. 6. Create a hashtag specific to your wedding, i.e., #ELYSIARAMON2012. Ask your family and friends to Instagram any of their favorite photos they took at your wedding and/or reception. Which of your friends will be the most likely to post first? 7. Think about renting a digital photo booth for your friends and family to enjoy at the cocktail hour and/or entire reception. The photos are memorable, take-home tokens for your guests and will leave you with fond memories of your guests enjoying and sharing in your day. Make your booth unique by customizing props that are specific to you as a couple: TV shows, sports, travel 8. Have your guests sign a photo mat so that you can frame some reception photos and remember who was there. 9. Have a silent slide show going on behind the main table with baby and youth photos of the two of you, and/or photos of the two of you as a couple. This is especially nice if someone who is rather shy has to give a speech, knowing that attention won’t be directly on them. 10. Have copies of younger photos of both the bride and groom with a thought bubble coming out of their mouths/heads for the guests to fill in. You really find the creative ones in the family in this “activity”. As seen in MSBRIDALGURU.COM

. . .your furry friends. . . I N C L U D I N G Y O U R E N T I R E FA M I LY O N Y O U R D AY

For some pet lovers, having their furry friend present at the wedding is a must-have. Pets come into your life and become part of the family. When getting married, you want your furry friend there with you, which can make for some great photo opportunities. The Pros: Dressing up your pets and seeing them walk down the aisle is probably one of the cutest things in the world, not to mention how sweet they look! Pets can provide a comic relief, especially if your pet has a funny personality. A small, outdoor ceremony might be the best situation for pets, because they can roam about (with a designated handler) and can relieve themselves (hopefully before the wedding!). The Cons: Pets are unpredictable; you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how they might react in a situation with two hundred people. Keep in mind that if you are going to pick up the pet, or he jumps up on you, his paws could rip or stain your dress. If you are the type of bride that is very traditional, having your friend at the ceremony may be too much of a distraction on your special day. If you decide to have your pets present at your wedding, keep in mind that some guests may be allergic, or not even be animal lovers. Have a designated handler to keep watch of the pets throughout the day and to take them home that evening. You might want to have your pets present for the ceremony only, and then have the handler take them home directly after pictures.

. . .videography. . . B R I N G I N G T H E S T I L L TO L I F E

While you may have budgeted for the dress and venue, you will also want to invest in a videographer. A videographer will cinematically produce a high-quality video that captures your wedding in a different way than your photographer. The videographer can accompany your film with meaningful songs, while simultaneously making you laugh and cry in the right places. BENEFITS OF HAVING A VIDEOGRAPHER: You want to preserve your wedding day so that you can look back and remember who was at your wedding, hear the emotional crack in your voice as you spoke your vows, and watch your flawlessly choreographed first dance. You may always want to remember how you felt and several special moments. As your marriage ages, some details of the day may wane, but a video will refresh your memory. Another great benefit of videography is for people who simply cannot make the ceremony; at least they can watch the video and feel like they were there. The new trend in wedding videography is the movie trailer, where your story is told and progresses up to the wedding day, as though you are telling your very own love story. Romantic, isn't it?! WHAT VIDEOGRAPHERS CAPTURE: A videographer is able to capture the moments you may cherish the most involving motion, emotion, and sound.A video can capture all the special moments of your day, such as when your mother is zipping up your wedding gown, attaching your veil, and giving you last minute marital advice, or you are touching up your makeup, all the while, tearing up. No bride wants to forget the array of emotions on a groom’s face when he sees her for the first time; that special moment between bride and groom can be preserved in video. Think of Prince William when he saw Kate for the first time, talk about romantic! The videographer is there to provide a complete story for you and to capture just how beautiful your wedding day really was. You should have a videographer present during the ceremony, as this is the most special time of the whole day. Another great time to have a videographer present is when you are taking pictures at the end of the ceremony; he can capture the guests’ faces when you are having pictures taken with your grandmother and the sweet words she says to you - how precious those moments can be.

right before walking down the aisle to the face of the best man when he thinks he has lost the bride’s wedding ring to the slips and falls of the bridesmaids as they fight for the bridal bouquet, it’s cute, true, and funny! You could also catch some funny moments by having your videographer set up a video camera in the photo booth. HAVE A VIEWING PARTY: Dress up in your wedding gown and host a viewing party at your home to watch your wedding video once it has been fully edited by your videographer. This will give you just one more reason to relive the day. After all, you waited your whole life, right? AFTER THE HONEYMOON: In some areas of the country it is becoming increasingly popular to “trash the dress” or “rock the frock”. Varying views exist on whether this should even be done, but videographers are jumping at the chance to be a part of this trend by offering all inclusive packages that include a trash the dress session, where a bride may paint splatter the dress or go to the beach and play in the water and sand. JUST ONE MORE REASON YOU NEED A VIDEOGRAPHER: When you have children, especially a little girl, you can show them your video, so they can see your love story. It is just really special to share this with your kids; they will cherish it, too!

BUT WE ALREADY HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHER: A photographer is essential to your wedding day, and the videographer will accentuate the photographer’s work. A videographer is able to capture the little moments between the amazing still life pictures. DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY: When you budget for a videographer, many options exist. Starting with small packages, including just ceremony and/or reception, going all the way up to documenting the entire day or the entire weekend, your videographer will customize your video to precisely what you need and want. Budget anywhere from $1,500-$10,000 and you can't go wrong. BLOOPERS: Have your videographer take video of the funny moments of your wedding day and create a blooper reel at the end of your video. From the meltdown that the ring bearer has

...bring on the fun... What makes a fun reception? It is very rare that the wedding cake, the food, or the flowers determine that. Book the right band and be assured youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a memorable and fun reception. When choosing the right band, consider this: â&#x20AC;˘ What do you want to accomplish with your band? Are you looking for a FUN dance band, background music, or something more sophisticated or elegant? â&#x20AC;˘ What is the time of day for the reception? For an afternoon reception think about a jazz trio or a piano player or maybe even a band that plays popular music but not necessarily dance music; people typically donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to dance in the middle of the day. â&#x20AC;˘ What is the size of room where the reception is taking place? How much room do you have for the band to set up? It is important that the size of the band works well with the size of the room or reception area. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoors, do you have enough power/wattage? â&#x20AC;˘ What is your budget? Dance bands usually start around $2,000 with the average price ranging from $2,500-$3,000. Solo musicians are usually in the $300-$500 range, while Jazz trios are typically in the $750-$1,200 range. Finally, when should you book your band? The simplest answer is as soon as possible, especially if you know what you want; otherwise, you may not get the band or the music you desire. Book the band and/or the musicians early just like you would your venue, your photographer, and your florist. Then sit back, enjoy the day, and have fun!

. . .the dj makes the reception a party. . . The ceremony is concluded. The guests are at the reception. But, wait, what's wrong? There's no music. There's no one to announce the bride and groom. Music helps create an ambiance. A DJ for your reception helps the reception flow and move from moment to moment. Today, DJs are about more than just playing music. They are emcees, Masters of Ceremony. The DJ can help determine the flow and tempo of your reception. The DJ will announce your arrival, your first dance, the cutting of the cakes, throwing the bouquet, tossing the garter, and you leaving for the honeymoon. No matter what your budget, music and someone to emcee the reception is critical. Most DJs have a computer with thousands and thousands of song selections, and they are always adding new songs; these vast collections should cover every genre needed at your reception. Although not recommended, sometimes your DJ can download a favorite song quickly at the reception. Note: the reception is not the time to select your music. For best results, meet with the DJ weeks or months before your wedding and tell him the style of music you prefer. Maybe there's a special song that you and your groom want for your first dance. Perhaps there's a special song you want for your dance with your Dad. Give the DJ your schedule of how you would like the reception to progress. Do you want to do the first dance immediately or cut the cake? The DJ is there to help you have a fun reception and keep things moving.

When interviewing your DJ, remember, your guests are going to be a wide age span. You will want a DJ who can play a variety of music. He/She will assist you in putting together a music selection that will guarantee that a fun evening will be experienced by all. Trust your DJ to do this. Most have many years of experience and know what music to play and when to play it during the reception. If anyone in your wedding party has a name that is difficult to pronounce, write it out for your DJ phonetically. This will assure there will be no goofs or embarrassments in the pronunciations for the Grand Entrance and announcements for the dances and toasts. Do you want your guests to make requests and control the music and tempo of your reception? Let your DJ know what he should do if guests ask for specific songs that are not your style or on your playlist. Your DJ knows how to deal with these requests. Music is such an important part of every wedding reception. Many times the DJ or band can make or break it. Get referrals from others and don't go with the lowest price. Look at the experience this person has. Book your DJ as soon as you are able, at least six months prior to your event; the most popular will book quickly. And most of all, make sure they listen to you and what you envision for your wedding and your music! As seen in the blog: MSBRIDALGURU.COM

. . .are all photobooth companies alike?. . . Questions you should ask "US" before renting a photo booth for any event. 1. How long have you been in business? Many new photo booth companies exist in the market today. Some are offering low ball pricing. You need to know how much photography and photo booth experience they have. Experience and professionalism matter! As with most things in life: you get what you pay for. 2. How many photo booth events have you successfully completed? 3. Are you a full-time photo booth company? 4. Is your booth a metal box or a cloth room type booth? Booths come in all sizes, styles, and designs. Some are more elaborate and ornate than others. You’ll find booths from a vintage look to beautiful, custom-designed, stand-up booths made of stained oak wood with real brass rails and appointments. Some booths are designed as stand-alone, decorative pieces while others are designed to enhance and blend with any decor. Some booths restrict the number of people that can fit inside the booth, whereas some can handle groups of 15 or more people. Ask if the booth is designed to be wheelchair friendly. 5. Do you bring full, backup equipment to the event? What happens if the printer breaks or runs out of ink? What will be the down time? Some photo booth companies have backup printers, cameras, computers; every cable and switch is right

there at your venue. Many companies include this safety feature in their contract and advertising. Does yours? This is the most important question you can ask. Can you imagine: the photo booth is broken, all your guests are waiting to get in the booth, and no one can fix it? It happens. Should the booth malfunction, how many minutes will pass before it is corrected? Your event is special, so you want a company this is prepared to give you a stress-free photo booth experience every time. 6. Do you use professional equipment? Today’s photo booths are usually equipped with the latest digital equipment. Ask if they are always upgrading their equipment. 7. Do you use a black background? Black backgrounds absorb a lot of light, so many times all you see is the front of the guest(s) lit up in the booth. With lighter color backgrounds, the whole booth area lights up well and you can see all the people in the booth much better, resulting in bright and clear photos that look more like studio shots. Ask if they offer different color backgrounds - many companies do, and give choices. 8. Are your photos dark and/or out of focus? It’s important to take the time to make the proper camera adjustment to provide the best, quality photo available. Photo booths often function in near-dark conditions as found at weddings, dances, and proms. A credible photo booth operator brings adjustable lighting so they can be prepared to light up the area when needed, in order to produce professional, quality photos. Take a look at their photos online and compare. 9. Do you sell photo booth photos? Some companies post the individual photos and photo strips on their website for free downloading and printing, copyright free. Some even go the extra mile and format, enhance, and brand all the photos for easy printing and downloading. Ask if the company does this and how large each downloaded photo can be printed. Some companies allow you to print as large as 8 x 12. 10. Do you offer additional options? Most companies have an assortment of options that can be added to your package, ranging from double sets of prints to external slide show monitors or video guest books, to high impact DVD slide shows of the booth photos set to music. 11. Price…there’s a huge range, why? The range of pricing varies from company to company depending on the quality of equipment, level of service, quality of product, additional options, experience, and expertise, including a strong degree of protection against problems arising at your event. Many photo booth companies are insured, which also has to be considered. 12. Are you affiliated with any professional organizations? Check and see if they are members of any area chambers, professional organizations, or the Better Business Bureau. NO - ALL PHOTO BOOTHS AND COMPANIES ARE NOT THE SAME! Talk with brides and organizations that have used their services. Always conduct your due diligence when hiring anyone for your wedding. Photo Booths are no exception.

...reception... T H E PA RT Y B E G I N S H E R E 3 simple steps to the perfect reception site You’re married. Now it’s time to celebrate! This is a time for you and your husband to relax, mingle, dance, chat, and thoroughly enjoy the company of your friends and loved ones. While finding the ideal reception location is one of the biggest and most important wedding-related tasks, have no fear…we’re here to help. Below are six simple steps to finding the right reception site for your perfect day. Step 1: What to do first “Where?” is the biggest question regarding the reception. Before you can work on this question, however, you’ll need to know two things: what style of wedding do you envision and how big? Obviously, a casual, relaxed, summer afternoon reception would require a completely different reception site than a formal, elegant, winter evening reception – so clarify the type of wedding (and the time of year) you both desire first. Once that’s been established, determine the rough guest list, including all interested parties: you and your groom and each set of parents. Of course, you’ll also need to consider your budget as well. This will have great influence on the number of guests you can afford to have. Once you’ve made these critical decisions, it’s time to start looking for the ideal reception site. As with anything, the more time you have, the better: some choice reception sites get booked one to two years in advance, particularly for prime dates.

Step 2: Start the search Local bridal publications like Premier Bride Mississippi, the internet, bridal shows, and married friends are all good sources of potential reception sites. If you have no idea where to hold your reception, consider: hotels, banquet halls, restaurants, community centers, and country clubs. Other less obvious options are country inns, historic homes or mansions, city parks, college or university facilities, art galleries, museums, and boats. Each location offers its own unique style and ambiance. There are two basic types of reception facilities: on-site and off-site. Most on-site locations provide the majority of services you will need for your reception: catering, beverages, tables, chairs, tableware, linens, and serving staff, making this a very convenient option. The facilities normally charge on a per person basis and have a minimum guest requirement. Such locations include hotels, private clubs, and restaurants. Off-site locations offer the use of the facility only, providing no other services. You supply nearly everything yourself, paying a flat fee for the use of the site. The nice thing about off-site locations is the freedom to do everything your own way and having more choices – although this can also mean more work! Narrow down your search by focusing on those sites that seem to best meet your needs, depending on your style, season, and estimated guest count. Once you’ve selected some possibilities, it’s time to go on a road trip with your fiancé, maid of honor, and/or Mom to check out the sites in person.

T H E PA RT Y B E G I N S H E R E Step 3: Evaluating reception sites Every site offers advantages and disadvantages, and your job is to sift through all of the features of each site to find the best one for your wedding – all while keeping your budget in mind. Here are some factors to consider: Location: The reception site should be no more than a 30minute drive away from the ceremony location. A longer drive than that is asking too much of your guests! If the location is difficult to find, or will offer special challenges to get there (say, located near a football stadium that has a home game on your wedding day) you should consider providing transportation for your guests from the ceremony site and back to their cars after the reception. Size and layout: Will everything happen in one big room or in separate rooms for the cocktail hour, dinner, dancing? Will it comfortably hold the number of tables you’ll need, and will everyone dine in the same room? Is there room for a band or DJ, and for cocktail hour musicians, if you’re having them? Privacy: If your venue does multiple events, find out if there are other bookings at the same time or on the same day as yours. If so, ensure that there will be adequate privacy and separation for your celebration. There should also be ample time in between events to allow your caterer or other service people to set up or break down your party. Parking: Make sure there is convenient, well-lighted, ample parking for your guests, and if not, find out if valet service is available. Technical details: Whether you intend to have a DJ or a band, inquire about possible restrictions regarding the type, volume, or duration of music. Be sure to confirm there is an adequate

PREMIER BRIDE

power supply for speakers, mixers, and amplifiers, or good acoustics for string and wind instruments. Some sites have builtin public-address systems which can be used for introductions and toasts. If your site doesn’t offer this equipment, make sure your DJ or musicians can provide it. Room décor: Most sites offer a neutral background to work with, but make sure the flooring, wall coverings, and colors will work with the style, color, and season of your wedding. Services offered: Be clear, with each site visited, exactly what is and is not included. From catering and wait staff to candles and chairs…get those details up front and in writing. A note about outdoor receptions: If you’re planning an outdoor reception, it’s critical to have a back-up plan in case of inclement weather. Planning for an outdoor reception is usually much more work overall, because you have to provide for everything from tents to salad forks to chairs. You may need to change plans at the last minute due to the weather! For these reasons, it’s highly recommended that you use an experienced wedding coordinator for an outdoor reception; this will ease your workload, and your stress, immensely. Down to details: As with any wedding vendor, make sure that all details are outlined in writing, and use a credit card whenever possible for making payments. This protects you in the unlikely event of a problem. You should feel comfortable with your contact person. They should respond in a timely and efficient manner to your questions and requests.

love at the Lodge

When Buddy and Joni McClain were engaged in St. Martin, they decided they wanted to get married sooner rather than later. “It wasn’t the first marriage for either of us, so we decided we’d try to get married in the next six months,” Joni explained. Finding the right venue was important to the couple, who both love the outdoors and nature. “I had been to Luckett Lodge in Rankin County before and liked it. Buddy and I went to take a look and decided that’s where we would be married.” Theirs was a small wedding, with about twenty close friends and family in attendance. “We were married in the chapel, then walked over to the lodge where we enjoyed a wonderful sit-down gourmet dinner with our guests. It was fabulous.” At the time of their wedding the lodge property was for sale. “We fell in love with it then and never really got it out of our minds.” The couple stayed the night at the lodge before heading on an extended vacation/ honeymoon to Italy. It wasn’t long before the McClains went into the wedding business themselves, opening Heart of Pines, a wedding and event destination on Fannin Landing Circle in Brandon. Then, five years later, they heard the Luckett Lodge property was on the market again. “We went out and rode around and Buddy just really fell in love with it again. We worked out a deal and now it’s our place.”

Renamed McClain Lodge, Joni said that the property is ideal for small intimate receptions like hers and Buddy’s, but can comfortably handle the largest of receptions in the spacious banquet hall. Because there are lodging options available, the bridal parties often stay the night and enjoy a bridesmaids’ luncheon on site before the ceremony. Couples can stay at the lodge, like Joni and Buddy did, on their wedding night. Becoming the proprietors of McClain Lodge was quite a natural fit for the couple. Buddy has 30+ years of experience in owning multiple restaurants and Joni has 20 years of experience owning her own event planning and marketing business. Both lifelong Mississippians, they are true entrepreneurs who understand the nuances of planning and implementing a successful event. Buddy and Joni oversee all lodge operations, from food service to technology, for events ranging from weddings and family reunions to corporate events and church retreats. “We’ve done a lot to the property,” said Joni. “From landscaping to painting and more. We also restored an 1840's home on the property than now serves as additional lodging.” The McClains have come full circle with McClain Lodge. “We feel it’s poetic justice in a way,” Joni mused. “We had our wonderful wedding here, and we’ll always look back and remember that day with such fondness. Now we get to see others married here, and it’s so rewarding to be a part of such an important occasion in the lives of other people.” - Susan Marquez, Free Lance Writer

...rehearsal dinner... TIME TO GET ACQUAI NTED

Your rehearsal dinner is a wonderful way to begin your wedding festivities. Its purpose is to provide an intimate setting for the two families to meet and get to know each other. The event can be as elaborate as a formal dinner or as simple as a crawfish boil in the backyard. The dinner, though it can be a brunch or lunch, is traditionally hosted by the groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents. The invitees include the: immediate family of the bride and groom, clergy, wedding party (plus each memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spouse or guest), young attendants with their parents, readers, and any family and friends who have arrived from out of town. The style can match your wedding day, or pull from one element of your wedding. Planning a honeymoon to Paris? Plan a Paris-themed dinner party. Arrange your seating so your guests will enjoy the company of those around them. Since this will probably be the first time many of your guests will meet, create fun place cards that will work as ice breakers, i.e., â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lynette Carter, Maid of Honor, Lindseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College Roomate at Ole Missâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Josh Stephens, Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Friend from 3rd Gradeâ&#x20AC;?. The groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father should begin the toasts, but because this is an intimate setting, the father of the bride, members of the wedding party, and friends may wish to make a toast or say a few words to the couple. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditionally the time the couple says a few words of appreciation to their attendants and parents, as well as present gifts. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simple or elaborate, the rehearsal dinner makes a great beginning.

Assigned vs. Unassigned seating at the wedding reception – opinions vary among today’s brides. Open seating allows guests to choose their seat, which works well with informal type and cocktail party type receptions. With assigned seating, guests can be assigned a seat or just a table, where they choose their seat at that table. A few guidelines will help the process of assigned seating. Begin working on the table layout and seating chart a few weeks prior to the wedding to allow for changes. Include those you believe will attend but have not yet responded. Determine if you need just a seating chart or if you also need place cards at each seat. Some brides are finding creative ways to combine the two, say a table with glass Coke bottles that have a tag hung around the neck stating the guest’s name and table number; guests pick up their bottle as they enter the reception and place at their seat. Place cards can help guests to remember each other’s names. Traditionally, close family and friends sit nearest to the bride and groom. Those generally seated together are: families, work friends, people of the same age (teenagers or the elderly), and groups of friends. For interest, mix the bride’s and groom’s friends at one table. Do not sit together divorced couples and/or feuding families. Planning a seating chart should not be a stressful part of wedding planning. Ask for help from the mothers of the bride and groom and begin early to make the process simple and hassle free.

A FEW TIPS

A good, professional caterer will deliver an excellent meal and impeccable service within the specifications of your contract and budget, all while sharing your enthusiasm for pleasing each guest. Simplify catering by following these tips: Professional Service: When selecting your caterer, there is no substitute for professionalism and experience. Extremely attentive service for a sit-down meal or cocktail party would require one server for every 10 guests; service is still quite good with one server for every 15 to 20 guests; the number is significantly less for a buffet. Your caterer can make suggestions for the best service style and the appropriate number of servers for your budget. A Meal to Remember: To ensure a quality meal, schedule a private sampling with the chef who will prepare your wedding meal. Your enjoyment there will be the measure of your guestsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; enjoyment at the reception. Catering Budget: To determine the catering budget, decide how much to spend per guest. Multiply that dollar amount by the number of guests expected and add an additional 10 percent to cover overage, approximately 17 to 20 percent for gratuities, and your local applicable taxes. Down to Details: Thoroughly examine your written contract, which should clearly state: dates, costs, when deposits are due, the food and beverages to be served, the number of servers needed, and any other details the caterer will provide. Carefully review postponement and cancellation policies. If you have any questions or concerns, openly discuss them with your caterer before signing.

...the head table or not... THE HEAD TABLE VS. THE SWEETHEART TABLE

The head table has been a staple in wedding reception tradition for many years. It involves each member of the bridal party sitting together, the girls on one side, and the guys on the other, each group supporting the bride and groom. You can choose to have your party elevated or be ground level in one large, single-sided head table. The head table can be presented in a few other ways, including the long, double-sided head table, so the bridal party stays together. Another style of head table is a tiered table, where some of the party is one level higher than the other. Naturally, the bride and groom would appear on the higher level. Some couples are passing on the group table in favor of the Sweetheart table. The sweetheart table consists of a small, usually round, table that can function as the centerpiece of the room. It can be decorated to your tastes, as it is just you and your sweetheart at the table. You may want to consider using your bouquet as the centerpiece of the sweetheart table. Your bridesmaids’ bouquets can be used at your table or at guest tables, which will cut costs on additional flowers needed for the reception. The sweetheart table formally presents you as a duo, instead of being part of a larger party. Everyone in your bridal party will be free to sit with whomever they choose. An elegantly appointed table for two is a “sweet” way to enjoy your first meal as a married couple.

...party rentals... EVERY LAST DETAIL

Depending on where you choose to hold your reception, you may find yourself in need of certain items not provided by your reception facility. Should this be the case, you will need to enlist the services of a party rental company. “Party rentals” covers a variety of rental items, from tables, chairs, tents, dance floors, bars, and fountains, to furnishings, china, crystal, flatwear, lighting, heating, air conditioning, generators, and theme decorations.

If you are holding your reception in a hotel, some of the items listed above may be included in the overall cost. The need for various rental items increases when the event is held outdoors or at an event facility where you are required to provide your own caterer. Before contacting a rental company it is recommended that you have the following information available: • Exactly what items are provided by the caterer: glass, flatware, china, serving pieces, etc. • Any items provided by the facility: tables, chairs, portable bar, and so on • Your event date, time, and location • The number of guests attending • Any special requirements or themes Find out in advance what the delivery, set-up, pick-up, and payment policies and fees are. Be sure to coordinate with the facility manager to ensure the location will be open when your rental company drops off your order and returns for pick-up.

...your guests... FROM NEAR AND FAR

When planning your wedding, it’s the needs of your out-of-town guests, traveling great distances to share in You’ll want to make certain their visit is

important to consider many of whom will be your joyous occasion. an enjoyable one.

Most hotels will provide a discounted rate when you reserve a block of rooms. The number of rooms required to qualify for a group rate will vary by hotel. Some hotels offer additional services such as a hospitality suite for your guests to gather for breakfast or cocktails. Many will also consider special checkin and check-out times for your guests. For hotel accommodations, it’s a good idea to consider the different economic situations of your out-of-town guests. Provide two or three options to create a comfortable price range from which to choose. While some of your guests may be on a limited budget, others will be combining their vacation with your wedding and will appreciate your efforts to select a hotel that combines local charm, luxury, and easy access to tourist attractions in the area. Traditionally, it is the duty of the bride’s family to recommend accommodations for out-of-town guests. It is not their responsibility, however, to pay for them. Include printed information in the wedding invitation for the recommended hotels, such as the basic room rate, contact information (including website and a toll-free number), and the name under which the reservations are held. Include your wedding website so guests can find additional information about the area and a wedding itinerary. Be sure to include the following on your itinerary: dates, times, locations, hosts/hostesses’ names and contact information, and style of dress.

Nothing says hospitality like a note, a small gift, and area information in your hotel room after a long journey. Welcome your guests to town with a note letting them know how much you appreciate them for making the trip and sharing in your momentous occasion. Because your guests may be travel weary, they will appreciate a little gift left in their room. Imagine their delight to find rich chocolates, a bottle of wine, fresh flowers and/or fruit, massage gift certificate, or a plate of homemade macadamia nut cookies. Be as creative as your budget allows; your guests will appreciate your thoughtfulness, regardless of the gift. Guests unfamiliar with the area will appreciate a map and informative pamphlets showing them museums, movie theatres, sporting events, children’s attractions, parks, and ice cream and coffee shops. You may also want to include the nearest hospital to the hotel just in case of emergency. Out-of-town guests are traditionally invited to the rehearsal dinner. Though invitations and responses should be handled in the weeks prior to the guests arriving in town, you may want to include reminder details in your welcome package and on the map. It is appropriate for the bride and groom to arrange transportation to and from the ceremony and reception locations for all out-of-town guests. If cost is an issue, it is perfectly acceptable to arrange for family and friends to provide the transportation. Though some of your guests will rent cars after arriving at your wedding destination, some guests may be nervous driving in an unfamiliar area. Recruit family and bridal party attendants to meet guests at the airport and safely deliver them to their hotel and other wedding events.

McClain Lodge & Heart of Pines <our wedding venue reÁects your personality and charm. When choosing a venue, ask questions: Will there be a planner to guide me through the wedding and reception? How many people will the ceremony venue hold? How many will the reception hold? May I have a rehearsal dinner at the venue? Are the tables, chairs, and linens included in the reception and/or rehearsal dinner price? Who is responsible for set-up, break-down, and clean-up? Do you have an in-house caterer, or may I have my own? What are venue rental hours? Do you offer overnight accommodations for my guests? A venue that accommodates both your ceremony and reception makes it easier for your guests. The in-house caterer makes it easier for you. Wedding venues that offer overnight accommodations are perfect with numerous out-of-town guests. Most importantly, there should be a natural ´Àtµ between your wedding and selected venues.

Dunleith Historic Inn Destination weddings make a lot of sense for couples whose families and friends are scattered around the country (or globe). After all, if most of the guests are going to travel anyway, why not get married in a place that’s a vacation for all? Remember, save the date cards are crucial; send them as soon as possible. This way family and friends can book transportation early. Plus, everyone will be assured they are booked in the same lodging as the rest of your guests. Send the destination’s website so your guests can plan activities, tours, shopping, places to dine. Keep in mind, this is a destination wedding and your guests may be planning their family vacation or reunion around it.

Deciding on what type of wedding you want is a very important choice to make. Have you always dreamed of an elaborate formal reception or a more relaxed atmosphere with a beach as your background? Making this decision Àrst helps everything in your planning process fall into place. Once you have decided on the type of wedding reception you want, the next step is booking a venue. Be sure to select a location that will set the tone for your special day. Do not wait too long though, because great venues tend to book fast!

You can check your state’s license requirements online, but conÀrm with a call to the county clerk’s ofÀce to see when they‘re open. Even if it’s open from 9am to 5pm, they may issue marriage licenses only during certain times, like Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm. Give a copy of your marriage license to your mother or maid of honor (just in case you misplace yours during the Ànal days before your wedding).

/ighting is deÀnitely one of the most underrated elements to wedding planning. Lighting creates the most dramatic atmosphere and can turn your venue into an amazing setting. With a custom lighting design you can wow your guest and create a fun and memorable experience for everyone. When planning, hire a professional wedding planner and create a realistic budget for lighting. I know, I know, this is the scary part, but every detail must have a budget! Trust me; you will be amazed at what specialty lighting can do for your big day! Lighting can enhance any event from engagement parties, bridal showers, and even corporate events. So, get to planning and Light It Up!

Every bride wants her wedding to express her individuality. For today’s bride, it’s more than color; it’s a look and a feel. Brides want weddings with style, their style. When working with Áoral designers, be careful of those that have turn-key packages for prices too good to be true. Usually these designers have templates they use. They may customize by changing the colors and the type of Áowers. Other than that, lighting, linens, props are about the same. Most designers can give you that one-of-a-kind look and work within your budget. Many designers can design and get constructed a speciÀc item that will take your wedding to the WOW! Don’t settle for less or someone else’s wedding with your colors and Áowers. Get what you want by working with a designer that understands the big picture and how to accomplish it.


...Lighting... AN ILLUMINATING APPROACH TO DECOR Lighting is the most underrated part of planning a wedding today. Nothing sets the mood like a sparkling runway for your reception entrance, a dramatic backdrop to the cake and other focal points, or a sensual blaze that falls on your first dance. Details like bridesmaids’ shoes may go unnoticed, but the glow of your event will set the tone your guests will remember for years to come. Take this into consideration as you decide how to illuminate your wedding. First, decide on the mood you want to convey at different points throughout your day. If your ceremony is at a charming church and your reception at an upscale venue, the lighting is going to be quite different. Even during the reception, there are special moments you´ll want lit differently. Would you like a party-ready, flashbulb entrance, or maybe something quieter and romantic like a twinkle-lit archway? Do you want sensual, candle-lit tables, or something more bold and dramatic during dinner like a crystal-draped chandelier? Consider the mood you want, then work with a professional who will focus on practicalities such as making lighting affordable, photo-friendly, safe, easilycontrolled, and customized. One popular way to customize lighting is emblazoning monogrammed spotlights on the wall or floor. Monograms can be as bold or subtle as you like and look best when there is a sharp contrast, such as a dramatic cobalt blue against a dark wall.

Visit your site at the same time your event will be held to determine where and what type of lighting you would like to use. In a venue with drab walls, utilize backdrops to transform the room. Drape mesh overlay that`s in your color scheme from the ceiling to the floor as if it were a tent, then use twinkle lights, striking spotlights, crystals, or whimsical orbs to illuminate the backdrop and bring personality to the room. If your venue doesn´t give you that much freedom with lighting, work with an expert to create a beautifully lit focal point you can add to the room. It could be spotlights on a stunning cake, a flirty archway entrance, glitzy dance floor cover, or an eye-catching tree dazzled with crystals or small candles. You may want to have just a color wash and have the color change throughout the event, i.e., gold tones for the cocktail hour, blue while guests are eating, and orange and pink while the crowd is dancing. Candles are the most time-tested and romantic form of light. Use them with care. First, make sure they´re in fire-proof and child-friendly places. The secret to candles is irregularity. Arrange different sizes and shapes along mismatched levels to add mystery and make the enlightened objects dance. Your lighting designer can help you figure out the best type of lighting for your budget. Whatever lighting you decide on, don`t underestimate the importance of the rays. They´ll be the backdrop of the pictures and memories you and your guests will remember as your perfect day.

...wedding planning... 4 STRESS-FREE TIPS You’re engaged – Hooray! Now the fun begins of planning a lovely wedding…trying on wedding dresses, registering for gifts, choosing the perfect party favor, and everything in between. Then reality sets in. You discover that planning a wedding takes an incredible amount of work. It requires making countless decisions, handling thousands of details, juggling endless tasks and errands, and doing it all while also maintaining your relationships, job, life, and sanity. What do you do? We’ve got some suggestions for you! Start early. Obviously, the more time you have to plan, the more breathing room you have and the more options you’ll have for wedding vendors. Stay organized. The two critical elements of staying organized include keep everything together in one assigned location and write everything down. Get help. The best thing you could do for a stress-free experience (and a relaxing, stress-free wedding DAY) is hire a wedding coordinator. This will make the difference between having a fun, enjoyable wedding experience and having a grueling one. You can find a coordinator for every budget, and every penny spent will have a priceless return. Take breaks. Take regular restorative breaks from wedding planning where you don’t think about, talk about, or work on anything wedding-related. It’s easy to get so wrapped up in all things wedding that you forget to see movies and visit with friends on non-wedding topics. When overwhelmed, take a moment to focus on everything going right and all that is good in your life. And remember there is a life beyond the wedding!

{GULF COAST}

...the mississippi gulf coast... A DESTINATION AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU! Beaches, piers, sailboats, parks, museums, mansions, casino resorts, old town churches, and MORE! What does all this have in common? These are all great places for weddings and receptions – and all located on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. Combine our delicious coastal cuisine, unique arts and culture, our history, atmosphere, and all of the southern charm found along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and your special day in a romantic destination wedding location will have you and your guests speechless. No matter what your style or budget, whether you are local or planning a destination wedding on the Gulf Coast, the accommodations here will have your wedding looking exactly as it does in your dreams – AMAZING! Options galore here - if you are looking to host an outdoor wedding, the Mississippi Gulf Coast has twenty-six miles of sandy, white beach to set your arch and chairs upon and go barefoot. The Gulf Coast’s stunning beaches provide the perfect picturesque backdrop for a ceremony overlooking the sparkling Gulf of Mexico. Or go a step further and have your wedding on one of our Biloxi schooners or other Gulf Coast charter boats. Say “I do” while watching the sunset and possibly having bottlenose dolphins as unexpected guests! Then move your wedding party and guests to one of the newly built piers for an evening of outdoor fun. If you want to stay on land, the Biloxi Town Green offers lush green grass to add to your happily ever after. If you prefer the indoor route, our many museums and historical mansions can house your wedding and reception, surrounding a beautiful bride with beautiful artwork. In-house

planners can help make your day as important as you are with specialized packages available. Recite your vows in front of artwork as priceless as your love for a special day you will always remember. The Gulf Coast is also home to many ole town churches with ornate stained glass windows, giving you both the antique and modern feel in one atmosphere! Casino resorts can not only house your wedding and reception but your guests as well, making world-class services at your fingertips. There’s no need to go somewhere else for pampering on your wedding day; the on-site spas can handle it all – hair, makeup, nails, and massages, without leaving the resort! Our casino resorts also offer catering packages, hotel accommodations, event planners, entertainment, and more. Here, pool decks, ballrooms, even parking garages offer unique and beautiful scenery for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and celebratory receptions. And when your day has ended, there is no need to leave for a vacation! Honeymooners will also find that the Mississippi Gulf Coast offers every accommodation for the romantic getaway of a lifetime. The excitement never stops with golf, charter fishing, barrier islands to explore, fabulous shopping, luxurious spas, live entertainment, and 24-hour gaming. When you plan your special day or the honeymoon to follow, plan to experience the sunfilled days and starry nights of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. –Taryn Pratt Sammons, Media Relations Manager

...finding the right venue... THINGS TO CONSIDER You’ve got the rind, maybe the date, certainly the city or locale, now what? Ask yourself these questions and your answers will determine the venue. What is more important: Wedding Date or Venue? If it’s the wedding date, then your venues may be limited. However, if you have no particular date in mind and can be flexible, then you can get the venue you want. How do you want to use this venue: Ceremony, Reception, or Both? Are you planning a church wedding and the venue is strictly for the reception? Or, are you looking for one place where you can have both the ceremony and the reception. Maybe you’re looking for a place to have the rehearsal dinner. The use of the venue will determine size and location and make the process easier. Also, some venues have exclusive or preferred caterers. If you have a specific catering company in mind and its not allowed in that facility, you need to look elsewhere. Some venues may have other preferred vendors like florists, lighting, audio, to name a few. Finally, some venues require you buy alcohol directly from them. All this: venue, food, alcohol, rentals, flowers, décor, linens, and lighting figure into the final price. Find out all this up front. What is your dream wedding? This is a time to share your dreams with your wedding professionals. What have you always envisioned? Do you have a particular place or time of day? Do you have someone in mind to officiate? For your reception, what do you see? Are you in a grand ballroom in an elegant hotel or are you in a barn with a ritzy rustic look? What is your vision? After all, this is YOUR wedding! How big is your guest list? Besides the date, this is a huge part in choosing your venue. How many people can the venue accommodate? They all have their numbers. Your family and the groom’s family need to come up with how many people you’re inviting to the wedding and to the reception. Ask the venue how many people they can accommodate. Can my guests climb this mountain? A bride wanted to have her wedding on top of a mountain at sunset. Unfortunately, her grandparents were not in physical condition to climb the mountain to see her get married. For the women dressed in cocktail and formal attire and wearing heels, the climb was a little steep. Be considerate of your guests in choosing the venue. How are you going to get guests from point A to point B to point C? Are the ceremony and reception venues close to each other? Are the venues near the hotel where the guests are staying? You want this to be quick and easy for your guests. If there are a large number of out-of-town guests, are you going to provide transportation to get them to all these locations? Some hotels do offer shuttles for your guests. In booking accommodations, ask the hotel if they provide this service.

VENUE CHOICES: Your place of worship: For many, this is where the ceremony will occur. Some have parish halls or community centers where they can host the reception after the ceremony. Keep in mind:

PREMIER BRIDE

119


FINDING THE RIGHT VENUE alcohol is probably not allowed on the property. So, even if you want a little sip of champagne to toast the couple, you’ll have to go elsewhere. Hotels: Because of their size and all they offer, hotels can do everything for the wedding: from the smaller meeting spaces for the bridesmaids’ luncheon to the grand ballroom that holds hundreds of people, you can have both your ceremony and reception in one convenient location. Plus, the guests have a place to stay and don’t have to worry about driving in an unfamiliar city. Country or Private Club: Many private and country clubs allow for non-members to have their wedding at the facility. Like a hotel, you have the convenience of an experienced and qualified kitchen, bar and serving staff, and a club staff member to help. Antebellum Home, Lodge, Boutique Hotel: Many couples want a place that is quaint with a hint of romance, maybe with historic value or a story. Some offer full service with in-house catering and a coordinator. Others let you choose your wedding professionals, usually from a preferred vendor’s list. Many of these venues offer both inside and outside areas for the ceremony and reception. And they have spaces for large tent set-ups, too. Restaurants: For those couples that love great food, individual service, and an exceptional wine list, this is ideal. Usually the chef can prepare foods that are your favorites, even though they are not on the menu. Home or Friend’s Place: Here you have complete flexibility with no stipulations or “have to’s”. Your costs may rise because you may have to rent or buy everything from seating for the guests at the ceremony to tables and chairs, plates, glasses, flatware, lighting, staging, dance floor, generator, bathrooms, and more for the reception. Park, Beach, Museum, Zoo: Like a home wedding, you can choose your vendors in these one-of-a kind settings. And like the home weddings, you are probably going to have to provide everything. In addition, in a public place, a permit may be required, with a small fee, to use that area. Remember, because it is public, there’s a good chance you’ll have prying eyes and uninvited guests. Destination Weddings: Many brides choose destination weddings. Some go within driving distance. Others jet off to tropical islands. And still some choose a foreign country, maybe with ancestral roots. Destination weddings are usually much smaller, requiring friends and family to travel at their expense. For the bride, it can be less stressful because many resorts and hotels have a coordinator that puts everything together for them: the officiant, photographer, musicians, flowers, cake, ceremony, reception. All the bride and groom have to do is show up. Finding the right venue is easy if you keep in mind what is most important to you!

...who to tell first... SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS

Congratulations! You are engaged and probably want to shout it from the rooftops! Before snapping a picture of your sparkler and posting it on social media, breathe, and call your parents. Your Parents Your parents will want to know first; they will feel left out and hurt if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and find out after others. If you are lucky enough to have your parents paying for the wedding, telling them first is an absolute must. If you cannot tell them in person, a simple phone call will suffice, but make sure you call them before telling others. Immediate Family and Friends After your parents, tell some of your immediate family and then, of course, your friends. When informing your friends and family, most of them will ask you when the big day is, even just minutes after your engagement! Some family members and friends are very eager to help, so be sure that your parents know where they stand with the wedding planning process. If your parents are helping pay for the wedding, have a meeting before plans are made to ensure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go over budget. The Rest of the World Phone calls are best when you are announcing your engagement, but in your excitement you might want to announce your engagement on social media. If this is absolutely necessary, you might consider a picture of the two of you, or a video of the proposal, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just change your status and accompany it with a picture of your ring. Email a picture of your ring to friends who ask; otherwise, it is considered bad form and tacky to post a picture of your ring.

/RRNRXW(YHQW&HQWHULVLQDQKLVWRULFORFDWLRQLQ*XOISRUW ³SHUIHFWIRU\RXU:HGGLQJRUVSHFLDOHYHQW/HW&DWHULQJ &UHDWLRQVPDNH\RXUHYHQWDGD\\RX¡OODOZD\VUHPHPEHU

You can still go more traditional and have a formal newspaper announcement. If you decide to do a newspaper announcement, think of doing it in your hometown, as well as the town or city that you are getting married. Some newspapers will accept your announcement over the phone, while others require a form. Inquire if they know the date your announcement will be published. While most papers offer a free announcement in the lifestyle section, others require a fee. The more popular announcement is just a simple email announcement saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting married!â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it! You might opt for an engagement party if your family is throwing the wedding for you and your partner. Sometimes the families will keep the reason for the party under wraps so that the guests donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know until the party announcement. When announcing your engagement, be sure to tell your parents first, not the Internet. Make sure that all key family and friends know next, and then spread the word virtually. This will ensure that no feelings are hurt during this highly emotional time.

&RQWDFW5RQ&UDYHQ RU'HEUD+RGJH

...stop and take it all in... TIP: For most brides the day flies by so quickly they hardly remember anything. Throughout the day, stop and take time to absorb everything going on around you. Look around at all the family and friends that are attending your wedding and joining with you in the celebration of your wedding. Remember the joy you are feeling as you are walking down the aisle. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a day of love and emotion that will remain with you for years to come. Take a breath and savor the day.

...destination wedding... TIPS FOR THE BRIDE-TO-BE You’re engaged! Congratulations! The first question you’ll receive from anyone with a pulse: When is the wedding? The second: Where is the wedding? As a bride-to-be, you will be the recipient of a lot of advice; this is a given. But many will not warn you that, aside from The Dress, the where-to-marry determines most of your big decisions, and sets the tone for the entire event. If you think about it, every wedding is a destination wedding. Whether you’re having yours in an obscure Malbec vineyard in Argentina or in your mama’s backyard, someone will be getting on a plane and/or driving in a rental car to make sure they are a part of your Big Day. A wedding is a big memory. It will reside with you and your voluminous wedding album for years to come. Destination weddings reveal not only your unique tastes and preferences, but also your attention to detail and originality in creating special memories for your guests. Where you exchange vows reveals what is important to you and your spouse. Respect for tradition? Spirit of adventure? Romance? Nostalgia? Whether it’s the place you two met, your family’s summer lake house, or island getaway you’ve both always wanted to experience, the location should speak to who you are as individuals and as a couple.

If you follow these four fast-and-sure guidelines, then your Destination Wedding is sure to be a big hit. 1. Select a Meaningful Spot. This may sound obvious, but so many people don’t consider this the crucial destination wedding deal-breaker decision that it is. You’ll be explaining the why behind the where you were married for the rest of your life. Do you really want to tell your future children and friends that you chose some random place to tie the knot because the hotel could accommodate multiple buffet stations? Make sure there is a good “why here” story behind your destination wedding location choice. 2. Have your ever-so-perfect patch of heaven on earth picked out? Good. Now think about your Favorite Time of the Year to Visit. It doesn’t have to be everyone else’s favorite time of year. It just has to be your favorite time to be there. Not everyone needs to ski: the mountains in the summer are just as beautiful. If your heart is singing for love in a mosquito-infested swamp along the Louisiana Bayou in August, don’t worry: guests will wear mosquito nets. Love the place you choose, and choose the time of year that you love it the most. Yes, it’s polite to consider when people can take off from work; but again, this goes back to you and how you want to create this special day. Loved ones will find a way to join you; they love you and want to share this memory with you. 3. After you’ve chosen your dream spot during your favorite season, get to know that place like the back of your hand. It’s

134

PREMIER BRIDE

time to Become a Native. Get to know it as well as you can. Know the hot restaurants to hit. Memorize the day-to-day weather during the time of your wedding. Become familiar with the best the area has to offer in that particular season, but be aware when planning for the location’s off-season, some tourist attractions will be closed, therefore limiting guests’ activities. A way to make all this research fun is to include your spouse and your family in the process. It’s a great bonding experience! Because you’ve been so smart to have already chosen a great place during your favorite season, researching tourist activities in the area may not take too much effort. For example, if you chose a mountaintop in Sewanee, Tennessee to exchange vows, and you spent your childhood summers there, I’m sure you can check off the three best (and only) restaurants in a 10-mile radius. Learn also about the possible side excursions and activities, so guests can pack as many novel experiences into their mini-vacation as possible, from skeet shooting to celebrity spotting to spelunking. 4. Now that you’ve become a certified Destination Wedding Tour Guide, you’ll want to Share your Wealth of Information with Guests (see above). Be prepared to own up to why you picked this particular place as the destination, especially to those who have never visited. Tell them a story. Make them want to come and share this happy time in your lives. I’m sure you already have your wedding website domain set up, right? The Knot, The Wedding Channel, and eWeddings all have basic, easy-to-use websites where you can provide the wedding intel for all the guests. You’ll definitely need to include maps of the town and the hotel, directions via plane/train/car, but you’ll also need to share many fun and exciting details to get the wedding party fired up. Be sure to check with the local Welcome Centers for free, local info and extras for the goodie bags. A Destination Wedding is an excuse for a mini-vacation. Provide unique, relaxing and energizing activities for all of your guests. Knowing they ¬are having fun will keep you calm and composed for the ceremony. Some guests might even stay a day later or come a day earlier—help make the most of their little holiday and this special time that matters so much to you. Rest assured that no other decision (except for The Dress, The Dress!) will be as important as the ones you’ve just made. Many fun (and some not-so-fun) decisions lie ahead of you: the color of the bridesmaids dresses, your bouquet arrangements, who sits next to your Great Aunt Fran at the rehearsal dinner. The decisions all hinge on the Where and When of a Destination Wedding. So take your time, choose well, and your Big Day will play out with a happy ending. The rest is smooth sailing!

{NATCHEZ}

...natchez... SOUTHERN CHARM

Nestled on a bluff that overlooks the Mississippi River, Natchez is the ideal location for a truly southern wedding, as tradition and time stand still in this historical city. Breathtaking ceremonies held in elegantly furnished, palatial mansions are commonplace in the South. Outdoor receptions on the grounds of stately plantations near the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge, and buffets under pergolas draped in azaleas and wisteria are also customary. Following the reception, newlyweds board a riverboat for a romantic overnight cruise to New Orleans. These venues are only part of the nostalgic charm that lures couples to Natchez. It is quite possibly one of the most romantic and sought after sites for destination weddings in the South. What is more, Natchez is not only a beautiful setting, it also easily accommodates guests, as well as the bridal party, and has an extensive selection of professionals to assist the bride with everything from the announcement party and rehearsal dinner, to the ceremony, reception, and honeymoon. Natchez has more than thirty stately mansions from which to choose, each providing the appropriate amenities and accommodations. Although Natchez is popular among brides, its charm appeals to everyone. Attendants and wedding guests will enjoy taking a tour of magnificently restored antebellum homes, perusing the downtown shops, or enjoying the local fare with everything from biscuits and bacon to haute cuisine, all while reconnecting with family and friends. The Natchez Food & Wine Festival gives visitors the chance to sample dishes prepared by some of the most esteemed chefs in the South. The Fall and Spring Pilgrimages are assuredly the most popular annual events. Those seeking

inspiration in music and theatre may be interested in the Natchez Festival of Music, offering an exceptional range of opera, jazz, and Broadway tunes. Blues lovers will enjoy the Natchez Bluff Blues Festival. For more casual amusement, guests can attend the Natchez Arts Festival or the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race, which consists of hot air balloons, live music, and fireworks. Outdoor enthusiasts searching for peace, tranquility, and adventure will be pleased with the accessibility of parks for fishing, hunting, hiking, golfing, cycling, and tennis. And, the true revelers need not despair. The city even hosts its very own Mardi Gras. During the holiday season, Natchez is especially enchanting as it hosts a month-long Christmas in Natchez that includes historical home tours, concerts, ice skating, meals by candlelight, and, of course, brunch and photos with Santa. So whether you are planning a fairy tale wedding, a family reunion, or simply looking for a weekend getaway, rest and relaxation await you in Natchez. When it is time for the bride and groom to commemorate their anniversary, they can reconnect with their families and attendants by spending a weekend at a romantic cabin on the shoreline of the 230 acre lake at the Natchez State Park, appreciating fine art and antebellum-era furniture at local galleries, enjoying high tea at a bed and breakfast, or taking a late evening carriage tour of the city. Whatever the occasion, hosting an event in Natchez will not only be unique; it will be an experience to remember and revisit. - Georgia Brown

...your wedding ceremony... COME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE Your wedding ceremony makes the marriage official, so you want to make it special. It can be celebrated in many different ways and can be held just about anywhere. The ceremony itself can express your individual personality, so get creative. Keep it simple: When planning your ceremony, keep in mind that if you stray too far from a traditional ceremony, you might confuse people. In keeping with the traditional ceremony, tweak little things, maybe have your officiant tell a story about you as a couple. If your officiant knows you very well, this might be the perfect way to incorporate funny stories about you and how you got together! Keep it personal: You may or may not want to write your vows, and that’s okay. If you do write your own vows keep them simple and personal. Include something that only you and your husband will understand; this makes your vows that much more special. If you don’t want to write your own vows, just keep in mind that you can change the simple things like vows to “I will, or I do” depending on your preference. In terms of length of the ceremony, this can also be altered. If you are having an early ceremony, you might want to keep it short; otherwise you might have some sleepy guests! This is also true with evening weddings, as guests might be hungry and ready for your amazing dinner. You can speak with your officiant to discuss your options to plan the perfect ceremony for you!

...second time brides... GETTING MARRIED AGAIN

It’s no secret that men and women are getting married more than once these days. However, with the decision to wed a second or third time there are also the common worries about tradition, dress styles, and proper etiquette.

classic hairstyle donning a headpiece, which might include elements such as feathers, organza flowers, tulle, lace, or jewelry/rhinestones/seed pearls. The possibilities are endless, but nevertheless beautiful and elegant.

Brides who are walking down the aisle for at least the second time tend to be more mature and ready to take on the world in a more sophisticated manner. Oftentimes, they are full-fledged career women who barely have time to fit a wedding into their schedule, much less plan a memorable day for which she can feel proud. With commitments such as work, children (and their busy schedules), and a personal life, it can be a tricky balancing act to plan a wedding during the prime of your life.

Additionally, most brides the second time around do not choose the princess dress they would have chosen to wear in their first wedding. However, white dresses are no longer taboo. Second time brides often choose shorter hemlines and colors that are often soft and pastel. Overall, dresses tend to be less ornamental, but with better quality silk or silk satin, and the train is not as long. The most important thing is to pick a dress, regardless of the color, that brings out the beauty of the bride.

Couples who are getting married again usually reflect more on the actual ceremony. Because of the many aspects involved in the planning, it is often a good choice to hire a wedding consultant. Many wedding consultants specialize in planning signature weddings for second time brides and keep the bride and groom on schedule.

Wedding parties tend to be pared down from four plus attendants to two close friends or family. Additionally, attendants are usually allowed to pick their favorite cocktail dress that is within the brides color scheme or theme.

A wedding coordinator keeps a record and schedule for the busy bride, which means the bride has someone to help her remember to get the wedding dress altered before the wedding picture is taken or remembering the ring bearer’s pillow is not available until the day before the ceremony. What about the Children? Above all else, be sure your children are the first to know of your engagement; the ex-spouse with whom you have children should also be told, then other family and friends. Wedding planners are good for helping to coordinate extended families, including the bride’s or groom’s children. Many couples are choosing to have their children be a part of the ceremony. Depending on the age of the children, sons might play the part of a groomsman, an usher, or a ring bearer. The daughter can also take part in the ceremony as a bridesmaid or a flower girl. The bride’s son or daughter might stand next to her in a show that the groom is not only marrying the mother, but also acknowledging he is taking the child as his own. This can also be done on the groom’s side. It is not uncommon to have a son and/or daughter walk down the aisle with the mother/bride. Since children will often have some issues with their parent getting remarried, it is a good idea to let them have a big part in the wedding so they can feel a sense of importance. Singing during the ceremony, lighting a unity candle, or just incorporating a reading will also tie the family and the ceremony together in a special way. Some families choose to share family vows during the ceremony, whereas the new step parent promises to love and care for the children, while promising to always love and protect their parent. Choosing the Right Dress and Style for You and the Wedding Party Blushers are not a good choice for the bride walking down the aisle a second time since this reflects the innocence of a first-time bride. However, the trend for a second time bride is a

Wedding Trends and Who Pays Smaller, intimate weddings are definitely the norm for second time couples walking down the aisle. The receptions are different too; simple dinner parties or cocktail receptions are preferred over full-blown affairs. The bouquet and garter toss might be supplemented or replaced with an award to the longest married couple in the room. Since, most of the time, the bride and groom will pay for the second wedding, the choices they make are their own this time around. However, if it is a first wedding for the bride or groom, parents might still want to be involved and pay for a part of the wedding. As there are no rules regarding how to handle this situation, often everyone helps with the budget to make it the most special day possible. As with any wedding, all parties involved in paying for aspects of the wedding should meet and discuss all wedding budget items and then set a reasonable budget. The wedding invitations are issued from the bride and groom, in third person, without titles. It would read as follows:

Jane Cook and John Smith request the honor of your presence at their marriage Enlisting the aid of family, friends, and wedding professionals ensures an easy and enjoyable day where nerves stay relatively unfrazzled and the sophistication of the event is remembered for years to come. Finally, remember that while you might have been married before, it was not to each other. Treat your special day as a new beginning for the two of you, with your pasts behind you both, looking only forward, together as a team.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to know your jeweler. When choosing a ring, Ă&#x20AC;nd a jeweler you can trust by his reputation; one that has longevity in the jewelry business and can guide you in making that beautiful purchase. Next, know your diamonds. Not all diamonds are alike. Familiarize yourself with the 4Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;Ścut, clarity, color and carat weight before you start shopping. Get your jeweler to show you the diamond under magniĂ&#x20AC;cation and explain why it is the clarity, grade and color. When you leave the store know your diamond and be able to recognize it. A respected jeweler will help you make the right choice.

When deciding what rental company to use, keep these things in mind. First, experience and staff: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to use an established company who has worked with many brides with different tastes and has the creative staff so your wedding looks unique. Second, when you sit down for your consultation, remember that a rental companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in house inventory is critical. Any rental store can get the item you want. But, what if they have to get it somewhere else? Now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at increased costs: fees for travel, pickup and return or shipping costs. Then you have to ask, will it arrive in time? Will the order be correct? An established company has the inventory. They know their products and how to best use them to suit your taste and budget.

Many brides are afraid to select higher priced items for their gift list. Brides, in fact, need to select several items over $100 even up to $400. Many groups of friends, wedding attendents, co-workers, old classmates, party hostesses, etc. will go in together to purchase a gift. If someone wants to spend $100 or more they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to purchase several items.....they want one nice gift. Some suggestions would be luggage, knife set, cookware set, kitchen electrics, linens and fashion bedding. These are much needed practical items which will offer many years of use and will be much appreciated by the young couple.

Great weddings have great linens, candles, alternating centerpieces, and one great specialty item (lighting, draping, amazing favors, one amazing Ă oral, etc. . One specialty item will set your wedding apart from everyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. A bunch of specialty items on a tight budget will make each item seem small. Linens can transform a room to a speciĂ&#x20AC;c style and take the reception above â&#x20AC;&#x153;standardâ&#x20AC;?. Picking one table size, one cloth, and one centerpiece that is repeated is very basic. Alternating centerpieces, rounds and rectangles, and cloths will ensure a variation throughout the room that is pleasing to the eye. A professional planner can control the budget and ensure the biggest bang for your buck.

The question most often posed by brides is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How much money should I plan to spend on my reception?â&#x20AC;? My answer is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That depends on your total wedding budget.â&#x20AC;? In planning your reception, 50% of your total wedding budget is a good rule of thumb. The reception is the highlight of the wedding. Approximately one-third of the total budget will go to food & beverage for your guests. Another 17% will be utilized for facility rental, decorations & Ă owers, entertainment, and any specialty or incidental costs, i.e. linens, chairs, tables. If this is more than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve planned to spend, consider cutting your guest list. The cost of the venue plus food and beverage is dictated by the number of guests expected to attend your reception.

One way to accomplish this is to have fun in the process, by employing a photographer who uses props to add originality to your wedding photos. Groomsmen love to wear sunglasses in photosâ&#x20AC;Śand sometimes top hats! Adding cowgirl boots to the bridesmaidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; photographic attire is deĂ&#x20AC;nitely popular, and using all of these props helps to lighten the stress often associated with the actual wedding day. There will be plenty of beautiful wedding photographs, but the members of the wedding party will surely remember the fun they had using the props to make their pictures unique.

. . .how to be a gracious bride. . . As you’ve been planning your wedding, you may have heard the expression “it’s your day, do it your way”. This is true! It’s a time to express your true self, be authentic, and drown out others’ expectations. On the other hand, it’s easy to take this concept too far. A “Dear Abby” letter described a bride who preferred dancing on an empty stomach, so she had guests wait five hours for dinner, and had the dancing first! That’s an example of taking it too far…

Here are a few tips about being a gracious bride: Understand your guests’ perspective. How does the day’s schedule look from their viewpoint? Awkward gaps of time between the ceremony and reception are difficult for guests; asking them to drive more than 30 minutes between locations is too much. Try to craft your day’s schedule with the guests in mind. Jump on those thank you notes. Guests are excited to give you a wonderful gift to honor your marriage; they can’t wait to hear not only that you received it, but liked it! Respond by writing a conversational, personalized note as quickly as possible. Give others grace. Realize weddings are an emotional time for your close relatives, especially parents and siblings. In addition to the joy, there can also be this strange sense of loss, and this can bring up unexpected emotions. As much as possible, when people around you are driving you crazy, give them grace and, maybe, a warm hug. Best wishes to you, gracious bride!

One of the biggest mistakes that I have seen a Bride make is to rely on a friend/ relative or someone who works out of their home and occasionally does Áowers/wedding design to handle the decorative/Áoral part of their wedding. I recently (on two different occasions) had a Bride call in “total panic mode” and tell me that the person she had doing her wedding had canceled on her. It was one week before her wedding! One had a sick parent and the other one just found something “better to do”. Imagine the panic... what to do... ALWAYS, ALWAYS hire a professional! A professional has an entire staff at their disposal, as well as lots of inventory/props/decor to make the most important day of your life memorable. Don’t be swayed by someone who says they can do it cheaper... remember, you pay for what you get!

Today’s tablescapes are nothing like your mother’s and grandmother’s. Brides are doing away with Àne china and opting for more impressive, everyday china or pottery. When registering, remember that a white plate can serve as a blank canvas for the most versatile place setting. Many lines now offer classic colors in multiple patterns, which allows for numerous mixing and matching opportunities. With so many pieces and patterns to choose from, you can create endless combinations to suit your individual style. Serving pieces can be chosen to match or compliment the basic dinnerware, too. Personalization is another fashion forward way to individualize your look. Select a monogrammed napkin, runner, or dish to make your look undoubtedly yours. Today’s tablescapes are pieces of artwork created to represent your inner stylist.

MMI Hotel Group Among the countless wedding checklists that exist, too often an important consideration is missing, making hotel reservations for out-of-town guests. Part of the success of any wedding is the atmosphere in which your guests gather. Arranging for hotel accommodations should be on your wedding checklist four to six months prior to your wedding date. When choosing a hotel consider location, price range, number of guestrooms needed, special facilities and requirements: pool, suites or a hospitality suite, handicap accessible rooms. Proper planning in arranging accommodations for your guests will save you unnecessary worries and allow you be a relaxed and happy bride and groom.

That Special Touch Your wedding cake is a huge part of your wedding. For many brides, it’s the centerpiece and the Àrst thing people see at the reception. That’s why it’s important to only use a professional that’s licensed. This way if there is a problem, that baker is accountable. Who wants a cake that is slanted or has grainy icing? Who wants a cake that the structure is too heavy and the cake falls apart? 5elying on a friend or a friend of a friend is not dependable. I have seen cases where at the last minute that friend decided not to make the cake(s). This won’t happen with a professional bakery. On this most important day, rely on the professionals!

Belk - Northpark There’s just something about crystal. Its sparkle adds elegance to any setting. To keep your crystal looking beautiful, just follow these helpful tips: ‡5inse crystal immediately after use to avoid stains and deposits. ‡Although some crystal is considered dishwasher safe, it is best to wash it by hand. Place a rubber mat in the sink and a rubber cover over the faucet. 5emove rings and bracelets. ‡Dry crystal by hand, with a lint-free cloth. ‡1ever store crystal upside down; you may chip the fragile rim. ‡To make crystal sparkle, occasionally add a few drops of ammonia or 1/4 cup of vinegar to your rinse water.

You wouldn’t believe how much a wedding coordinator can change the feel of your wedding day! A wedding with a coordinator runs more smoothly and calmly. Most importantly, everyone is on time! I have better photographs because of that. Most brides think they don’t need a coordinator for their special day. Without a coordinator, the photographer ends up wearing many hats. Many brides say they don’t have room in their budget for a coordinator; however, coordinators can actually save you money. They know what vendors to use: who is overpriced, and which one is a great deal; they can point out the vendors that are right for the bride; they also know which vendors work well together. Take the time to look at and consider wedding coordinators in our area so you will have the assistance of someone to make your big day a HUGE success!

...gowns... SHOPPING FOR THE ONE So you have the groom and the ring, and now you are ready to hit the ground running to find that perfect dress! Congratulations! Here are some tips to finding that perfect dress and staying stress-free! DO YOUR HOMEWORK: Go online, scour the newsstand and look in magazines to find anything and everything wedding related. When you think of your wedding day, what do you picture yourself wearing? Is it a full ball gown or a form-fitting mermaid gown? Know the different styles of wedding gowns, and make sure you know what you are looking for. Make sure you know your budget before making an appointment. You don't want to get your heart set on a $10,000 gown if you cannot afford it. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT: Most bridal boutiques ask that you make an appointment and come prepared. Make sure you have an appointment with a consultant, and find out how much time you are allotted. Because Saturday's are hectic, weekdays are the best time for an appointment, because the consultant is able to give you her undivided attention. Make sure you have enough time to order your gown…allow six to eight months when working with a bridal boutique. Bring pictures of gowns you like. Ask the consultant to pull a few of her picks, too, as variety equals options. Keep an open mind as you shop, as most of the time you will not end up with the gown you pictured. Try on headpieces and veils while you are trying on gowns to get the full effect.

THINGS TO BRING TO AN APPOINTMENT: • A strapless bra and the proper undergarments • A credit card, just in case you happen to find the dress • An open mind, and don't look at the size of the gown you are trying on or measuring. • Bring a camera. If the salon will let you, take some pictures to capture the moments when you come out in the dresses. Even if you don't like some of the gowns, the pictures make a great album later on. Snap a picture of you and your consultant, especially if she sells you the gown. Don't show anyone the pictures; the more opinions you get, the more confused you are. • Don't bring the entourage! While you would like to include everybody in the gown shopping process, make sure that you only bring two to three people. If you bring too many people, it can become confusing for you, and you will not know what you like. • Do bring your mom! She will want to share this experience, and it can be an experience you both cherish the rest of your lives.

ENTERTAIN THE IDEA: VEIL OR HEADPIECE: If you have a seasoned bridal consultant, she will automatically put you in a veil or headpiece. This will do two

PREMIER BRIDE

things: make you feel like a bride and complete the look. Your consultant will more than likely accompany the veil with a headpiece, which will further complete the look and enhance the dress. Some brides choose a tiara, headband, pretty clip, or other baubles. BELT IT UP: To create a defined waistline, a beaded or colored belt can make a huge difference. Belts have become a staple when it comes to bridal fashion; they complete the bridal look. From a plain gown to an all lace gown, the beaded and/or colored belts are just the perfect amount of definition the gown needs. The addition of the belt can change the look of the whole gown, making it the one! COLOR IS ALL THE RAGE: All gowns come in at least two colors across the board: white or ivory. Some companies have the addition of diamond white, blush, red, and even black. Anyone can wear white or ivory; it's all about what color looks best on your skin type. Brides who are wearing colored wedding gowns such, as pink or blue, have a certain amount of confidence that they are exuding and want to express their certain style on their wedding day. ALTERATIONS 101: Alterations can become pricey, especially if you have a lot to change about the dress. Rule of thumb: if you have to change the entire style of the dress, it is not the dress for you. Typical changes in wedding dresses are the hemlines, because almost always the dress is too long. Some companies offer what's called a “hollow to hem” measurement, which is a measurement to make sure the dress is the correct length for you. The hollow to hem measurement is especially helpful if you have an all lace or beaded gown with a scalloped edge on the bottom. When making the first alterations appointment, make sure it's about three to four months in advance, and have them pin it first. You can count on the bust line being taken in; they never fit exactly right! If you are choosing not to wear a bra, then have the alterations person attach bust cups for the support. The last thing you want to see on your wedding day is your gown sagging in the front. Make sure that the dress is properly fitted in the bust. You don't want to be pulling the gown up all night long. NEVER BUY ONLINE: You know those super cheap, knock-off sites where you can find the exact same dress for about $200; it’s too good to be true. NEVER buy from them! The dresses are coming from overseas, and they take forever to get to your home. In addition, the packages are not insured, and are not of good quality. You don’t want to be like the bride that purchased a gown online and received a gown that had been hot glued together, and in the wrong size. Make sure you know who you are buying from, and if they are a legitimate company or not. The last thing you need is a dress coming in wrong, or having money taken and not returned back to you.


...pick the right dress style... TIPS FOR FITTING YOUR BODY TYPE It’s important to find a dress style that flatters your body; emphasize the positive aspects and minimize the less-than-ideal areas.

– around the bust line for fullness and balance. Have cups sewn into your gown’s bodice so you can eliminate the need for a bra – one less thing to worry about!

Petite/Short: Sheath, A-line, and Mermaid are all flattering styles on a petite figure. To add height, combine a short sleeve or sleeveless dress with long gloves. Consider a dress with a high neckline and empire waist to elongate your figure. Ball gowns and veils longer than the floor can overwhelm a petite frame. Pouf veils and up-do’s will add to your overall height.

Hourglass: This “curves-in-all-the-right-places” body looks great in simple, classic styles such as sheaths, mermaid, and a fitted princess gown. Consider a v-neck, off-the-shoulder, or scoop neck – these necklines provide nice balance and proportion to an hourglass shape.

Full Figured: Ball gown and A-line styles are especially flattering on fuller figures. The fitted waist and full skirt of a ball gown emphasizes your beautiful curves, and hides any figure “issues” below the waist. An A-Line silhouette will flatter practically any figure. Consider a neckline with beading and other details to help draw the eye upward and balance your silhouette. Large Bust: The following necklines work well with a large bust: keyhole, high, v-neck, and illusion yoke. Consider finding a gown style that allows you to wear a bra with straps, for the best support. It’s all about proportion and balance, so consider a dress with beading, lace, and other details around the hemline and the bottom half of the dress and not the bodice. Full Hips: A-line, ball gown, flared skirt, and cinched waist styles are all very flattering to this body type. A broader neckline such as off-the-shoulder, Portrait, Bateau or Sabrina can help balance your overall silhouette nicely. Small Bust: While many styles can be flattering, consider styles that include extra details – layering, beadwork, ruching, lacework

Inverted Triangle: Full skirts or full trains are a great way to balance out your overall silhouette when you’re fuller on top and through the shoulders. Consider dresses with bustles, bows, and other adornments on the bottom half of the gown. Triange/Pear-Shaped: Consider full sleeve treatments, padded or pouf sleeve, to balance out your fuller bottom half. Consider a textured bodice with heavy beading and a flattering neckline that will draw focus upward. Tall: A drop-waist dress with a lower neckline or any off-theshoulder style looks great on taller figures. If you’re also slender, a sheath or mermaid style will really show off your slim frame. Sometimes when you’re thin, your shoulders and collar bone can look “bony” – and if so, you may want a dress style that covers those areas more. Something else to consider: pouf veils and updo’s will add to your overall height. Thick Waist or Rectangle-Shaped: An Empire silhouette looks especially flattering on those body types that are fuller through the waist. Consider using strong detail on the upper or lower body, but not both, to give the illusion of curves.

...what’s a bride to wear?... Today’s bride faces a number of daunting tasks when planning a wedding. There are a million decisions to be made and considered, but the most important decision she will make is, ultimately, what she wears. The bride’s gown is the most photographed and discussed, and in some cases, passed down through the generations. It is a costly purchase and a huge commitment. Many brides today repeatedly pick a gown that is essentially appealing on the surface, but not uncommonly, the gown is often uninspired and lacks personality. Brides often choose gowns by what they see in magazines, on television shows, and in store-front windows. So frequently, little thought is put into whether or not the dress is truly appropriate for the body shape, personality, and complexion. What’s a bride to do? An image consultant can take care of all of these areas. A competent bridal/image consultant should be trained in all areas of fit, fashion, and color theory. Fit is everything, and with great fit you can look impeccable on your wedding day. Fashion is another important area one needs to know well. Fashion is always changing, and it is vital to keep up on everything that is current. Moreover, fashion history is also very important because fashion of today is often influenced by the fashions of the past. In addition, an image consultant trained in color theory can help you choose the right color for your wedding gown. For instance, most people do not realize there are an infinite number of shades of white. And is white the best color for you? You may look better in ivory, blush, or champagne. Remember an important part of your over-all look is hair, makeup, accessories, shoes, and undergarments. These items play a significant supporting role. Any of these items can make or break a gown or outfit. So, again, having a trained eye is beneficial to you and will save you many headaches as you go through the process. Remember you will be taking pictures so you want your hair and makeup not to be too trendy. You want a look that will withstand the test of time. When working with an image consultant, a bride should take away lifelong lessons from her experience. Fit, color theory, and proper shopping techniques are just a few tools she should keep in her fashion toolbox for a lifetime. This experience should be a learning process for the bride. For her, this special day will be commemorated in pictures for the rest of her life. An image consultant can help a bride move through this process seamlessly and be there for the bride should she need a shoulder to lean on now and in the future. They are there to help create an organized and beautiful vision for this once in a lifetime event.

WHAT EVERY BRIDE SHOULD KNOW Getting married entails many decisions you have probably never had to even think about before. With the array of activities, it’s easy to give little thought to having your wedding dress altered. Alterations are how you achieve the perfect fit. Alterations are one of the most important factors in purchasing a wedding dress. After all, a wedding gown is the most photographed dress of a girl’s entire life, so it must have the perfect fit and must lay perfectly against her every curve. Bridal alterations can be expensive, but yet A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND. Wedding dresses have much more complicated constructions, with boning, underlining, beading, and layers of tulle, so the alterations take longer. It’s not unusual for a beaded strapless dress to cost over $100 just to have the bodice altered, or for an elaborate bustle to cost $150 or more. Every wedding dress has its own distinct shape, as does every woman’s body. The purpose of alterations is to compliment the bride’s unique figure. No two brides are alike whether you are size small, medium, or large. If alterations are done well, your gown will move with you. If alterations aren’t done well (or done at all). . .imagine pulling on your strapless dress all night, tripping on your hem while walking down the aisle, or struggling to dance, eat, or breathe with a too-tight bodice. These worst-case scenarios can be prevented! Here are some tips you should apply when preparing for the alterations process. • Budget for your alterations cost. • Before you purchase or order a gown, have the store seamstress assess your gown for the alterations cost

before you commit to the dress. In most cases, this will prevent alterations from costing more than the gown’s purchase price. • The most common alterations for a wedding gown are the hem, the sides, and the bustle. • Entrust your gown to a credible, professional seamstress. • Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the whole experience. You should set your appointment in advance. Bridal season is always busy and schedules fill fast. While these are some of the major issues to consider for any bridal alterations, you may have more questions that may apply to your particular gown. A good seamstress knows what questions will be asked, will most likely have the answers, and can help you achieve the perfect fit for your big day. Q: What physical conditions should brides keep in mind, in terms or weight? A: If you intend to lose weight before the wedding, set realistic goals and organize a healthy diet plan. Q: How many times will a bride have to return to a boutique for fittings? A: Depending on how much work needs to be done, at least 2-4 fittings. Q: What are the rules for picking undergarments for the gown? A: The style of your gown will determine the appropriate undergarments, such as bra and slips. Your fitter will also suggest the best undergarment for your needs.

Now, bear in mind, this advice is to enhance your wedding day experience, so adhere to the above advice and enjoy your special day!

A sho shoe hhas so much more to offer than just to walk. CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN


. . .choosing your shoes. . . TAKING THE RIGH T STEP So you’ve picked your perfect dress, and now all you need is something for your tootsies? Having trouble deciding what to wear? These ideas will have you in a great pair of shoes that make a personal statement and look great. If money is no object, then certainly go to your favorite upscale retailer and purchase the perfect pair of shoes to grace your feet on your wedding day. For those who need to be mindful of a budget, there are many ways to get walking in the right direction. Gone are the days of white or ivory shoes with wedding dresses; color is very popular with bridal shoes! Not only color, but different additions to shoes like shoe clips or heel rings, which have stepped onto the scene. Customize your shoes by adding feathers, sequins, or stones to make your feet sparkle. Some brides don’t even want to wear shoes; and why not, it’s your wedding, right? Why not snag some beautiful foot jewels and walk on the sand! Foot jewels typically resemble an anklet that goes in-between your toes. These are best suited for a beach wedding, but if you choose to go barefoot at your reception, its all you!

You can have custom heels made, but they come at a price. You can also find custom shoes online; try special artisan marketplaces, such as Etsy. Know what type of shoe you want and be very specific when it comes to buying shoes online. Have your heels hand painted, with whatever artwork you like, and consider your feet a work of art on your wedding day. Brides are looking at printed shoes, too, with the colors matching the wedding. If you find a print that you absolutely love, why not use that as your wedding color palette? If you don’t want printed shoes, have your bridesmaids wear them. They will add a pop of color to their look and make for a great photo op! If heels aren’t your thing, consider an unconventional type of shoe, like a riding boot, or cowboy boot. Cowboy boots are popular and make a great statement under your wedding gown. You can special order them according to your specifications, and they can be made in just about any color. Some brides prefer to wear Converse sneakers under their wedding gowns, while allowing the groomsmen to do the same. This is extremely unconventional, but is very popular. You can also incorporate a great flat for your wedding shoes, which are so much more comfortable. This way, you won’t have blisters and can use them after the wedding. You could also do a cute little sandal with your wedding gown and then again with your sarong while honeymooning in the Caribbean. Lastly, go shoe shopping at the end of the day so that your feet are slightly swollen; this will ensure proper sizing. Choosing your shoes should not be stressful; it should be fun to find the perfect pair for your wedding day. Have fun, and try on as many as you can; you’ll know the right pair when you see it.

. . .here comes the bride. . . FI T AND FABULOUS Congrats on your engagement! While you’re relishing in the delight of making wedding plans, you may also need time to become “fit and fabulous!”. What bride doesn’t want to look stunning on her wedding day? It’s only normal to be a bit self-conscious knowing all eyes will be transfixed on you as you walk down the aisle, and let’s not forget the wedding photos that live on forever. Many brides embark on a stringent fitness and diet regimen only to become frustrated in less time than it takes to address an invitation. The excitement of your dream wedding becomes overshadowed with the stress of not fitting into your perfect gown. Don't fret; I have five easy tips that can help any brideto-be zip through her engagement and zip into her dress. Say “I Do” to Breakfast The biggest mistake any dieter makes is to skip breakfast. Breakfast kick-starts your day with the nutrition your body craves. Studies show that breakfast eaters weigh less overall and gain less weight than those who avoid it. Skipping breakfast can cause low energy, increase snacking, and leave you hungry before lunch. • Enjoy a protein-packed egg white omelet with low-fat cheese brimming with vegetables. • Replace your morning pastry with one cup high-fiber cereal and skim milk. • Make oatmeal with low-fat milk instead of water to infuse calcium and protein into the bowl. Toss the Bouquet and Soft Drinks Sugar-sweetened beverages (including sweet tea) are high in calories, low in nutritional value, and add inches to your waistline. Avoiding one can of soda a day could equal an extra pound lost per month! Drink water or low-fat milk with nine essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium, potassium, and vitamin D, instead of regular sodas, fruit-flavored drinks, and sweetened teas. • Carry a water bottle for easy access and aim for drinking 64 ounces each day. • Order water or milk with quick-serve meals instead of sodas. • Avoid alcohol until you toast as man and wife. Say “Yes” to Snacks Smart snacking between meals is a great way to slim down. Nutrient-rich snacks will help you curb hunger pains and avoid overeating at meal time. By scheduling and preparing for snacks you can be sure to have nutrient-rich options available. Stock your car, purse, or desk drawer with these simple snacks. • Sliced apples and pre portioned 100 calorie nut packs. • Pre-measured trail mix (? – ? cup). • Greek yogurt (for twice the protein as regular yogurt) and low-fat granola. Alter Your Side Orders The entrée is typically the focus when trying to cut calories. It is true choosing grilled over fried and/or removing the skin can save countless calories. But if you don’t want to part with your main dish, look to the side order and opt for lower calorie options. Don’t forget to pass the bread basket, literally. • Replace a side of fries with a salad or vegetable soup. • Ask for salad dressing and all condiments on the side. • Opt for double grilled vegetables over the potato or rice.

Savor Memories Not Seconds Think getting in shape for your wedding is hard? Try accomplishing this feat while attending parties in your honor, where the only thing more important than the bride is the buffet! Set your mind to enjoy the evening, savoring the sweet moments but not the extra calories. • Never arrive hungry. Have a protein rich snack such as Greek yogurt or a handful of nuts. • Limit cocktails and wine, because research shows alcohol leads to over indulgence due to loss of inhibitions. • Nosh on nutrient-rich foods. Always fill half your plate with brightly colored fruits and vegetables from the crudités tray, first. Remember, diet and exercise complement each other. Physical activity, especially aerobic activities (like brisk walking, jogging, cycling or swimming) can help relieve stress, regulate appetite, and burn up extra calories from your cake tasting. For good health, we need 30 to 60 minutes every day. Regardless of your motivation, it’s always a good idea to start off your marriage with better nutrition and fitness goals. Remember, your groom-to-be thinks you’re perfect just the way you are; otherwise, he wouldn’t have proposed his everlasting commitment to you. With a little planning and a healthy eating plan, you’ll glow in your wedding gown! Rebecca Turner, MS, RD, CSSD, LD is a registered dietitian ºand certified sports specialist in dietetics.

Lowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bridal & Formal If I can give every bride one piece of advice, this is it: donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look at the gown on the hanger and make your decision. You must try on the gown! You must put the gown on your body! That mermaid gown you see in a magazine may not be what is best for your body type. That strapless gown may not be what is best for your bust line. Keep an open mind. What you think you want to wear for your wedding day and what you ask to try on when you Ă&#x20AC;rst go into a bridal salon may be entirely different from what you end up actually ordering for your wedding. Trust your bridal consultant to put you in a gown that is right for your body type and will make you look your absolute best on your special day.

B OBBIE J EFCOAT (M IMI ) Mimiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bridal

Plan early, order early because it can take up to 14 weeks to get some gowns manufactured. This applies to the mothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dresses as well. Keep an open mind when shopping for your gown most of the time, brides end up buying something totally different from what they originally planned on. Once you have made your decision and made the purchase, Stop Looking and move on to something else.

$&&(6625,=($&&(6625,=( $&&(6625,=(

When selecting your gown, be open minded to trying on all styles and all designs. This means you must be comfortable with the salon consultant working with you. Tell her what you like and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like . . . a special button, sleeve, neckline, fabric, and what you envision. With so many designers and gowns, she can usually Ă&#x20AC;nd it for you. We have found that with nine out of 10 brides their Ă&#x20AC;nal choice is not what they came into Imaginations thinking they wanted for their wedding dress. For example, the silhouette is a popular style. Everyone loves the Ă&#x20AC;t and Ă are, but it may not be the right style for your body. Be open minded and trust the salon consultant.

Christineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Couture Accessorizing your bridal gown can be really fun and exciting! Veils, sashes, jewelry, and shoes: there are so many possibilities to consider! Depending on the style of the bridal gown, a bride may choose to wear a chapel-length lace edged veil or a short Ă irty birdcage veil. Hairpieces can even include rhinestone brooches, and feathers. If she chooses a simple, elegant style of gown, the bride may decide to dress it up with a belt or sash featuring beads, lace, or even feathers! Jewelry can range from traditional pearl strands to â&#x20AC;&#x153;blinged-outâ&#x20AC;? chandelier earrings or jewelry featuring colored rhinestones. The newest trend in shoes is wearing them in the wedding colors. The perfect accessories are like the icing on the cake!

The bridal gown is the cornerstone of a wedding. The style selected sets the stage for the rest of your wedding. Formality, location, wedding partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attire, Ă owers, and even the cake are all determined by your gown. In many cases, the style of gown a bride believes she wants is not what looks best on her. Very often, brides select a gown quite different from what they had envisioned. It is most important to select a gown that looks fantastic on you Ă&#x20AC;rst then make the other wedding decisions afterward. For example, a Ă&#x20AC;t and Ă are lace gown with a long train that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always dreamed about may not be the best choice for a beach wedding. 2r a simple, Ă owing chiffon gown that Ă&#x20AC;ts you perfectly may not be appropriate for a formal â&#x20AC;&#x153;half past sixâ&#x20AC;? church wedding. Vintage, rustic, glamorous, traditional, beach, Vegas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; let the gown make the decision!

S AMANTHA W OO Woo Couture

&hoose your location Ă&#x20AC;rst to determine the mood of your wedding. Then set a budget. Shopping for your gown should begin early, six months or more prior to your wedding. Do your research. Imagine yourself and what you will wear for your special day. Make the appointment and bring a support group between two and Ă&#x20AC;ve that will be supportive and honest always keeping a positive attitude toward suggestions from your loved ones. 8nderstand what is most Ă attering for your body shape. Keep a level head and be patient at your appointment. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t choose a wedding dress too tight hoping to lose weight. Alterations are easier to do when the dress is too big rather than too tight. Finally, be honest with yourself.


...the fashionable groom... Today’s grooms want to look just as fashionable and stylish as their brides. Since most grooms prefer to rent a tuxedo for the wedding, there are specialty tuxedo store representatives with years of experience and style that can help each one put together his wedding ensemble. The better stores offer a variety of styles and colors with coordinating vests, ties, and shoes. Most have everything in stock and offer in-house alterations. How formal your groom will need to be dressed will be dictated by your wedding’s time of day, location, and the over-all style you envision. Many grooms are choosing suits for themselves and their groomsmen. Grooms with the right body type can be seen wearing the slim cut pants for a trendier look. For the past several years khaki and beige have been the popular color choice. And making a comeback is the white dinner jacket with black trousers. What is the look and feel your groom wants? What will he be comfortable wearing for the wedding? You want him to feel as special in his tuxedo as you do in your gown. You want him to feel as handsome as you feel beautiful. If you are accompanying your groom to the tuxedo shop, in order to coordinate his wardrobe and that of the groomsmen with the wedding colors and/or bridesmaids’ dresses, bring a fabric swatch. This will help if you want to match colors or find the closest shade possible. Ask your groom what he wants to

look like or if he has a preference on what he'd like to wear. Sometimes a groom hates the feel of fitted pants, or doesn't like the poof factor pleated pants can have. Certain cuts of jackets might make him feel clunky, so try not to pressure him into a long jacket or jacket with tails if he doesn't want it. After all it's his day too! If you want your groom to be different, try venturing outside the black scheme. Have him try on colors such as a very light gray, ivory, tan, medium gray, or even white. Regardless of what color your groom selects for his tuxedo or suit, choose shoes, shirts and ties in colors that can truly accent and bring the look together. Remember his jacket and pants don't have to match. You can do an ivory jacket with black pants and a bow tie for a debonair James Bond look. Since most men at weddings look the same, consider having the groomsmen dress a little differently to accent your groom. If your groom is wearing a tux and you want him to really stand out, have his groomsmen wear a different color of pants or shirt and shoes. You can also have their ties match the color of flower in your groom's boutonniere or the bridesmaids’ flowers or dresses. This will make for exceptional pictures later on and give a very uniform and elegant feel to your wedding. Now that the creative juices are flowing, to what style groom are you looking forward to seeing at the end of the aisle?
