the basics Make your dreams come true!

You can make your wedding dreams come true on any budget. Begin by having a specific wedding style in mind. Do you envision a formal, informal, garden-style, Victorian, country-style, or other type of wedding? Next, select the colors you want included in your theme. Cut out pictures of wedding ideas that you love, as well as ones you definitely don’t want. Take these pictures with you when visiting wedding businesses. This will help each vendor know exactly what you like, and enable them to cater to your individual needs. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words, and will show exactly what type of product or service you are seeking!

Pre-Announcement Planning

wedding planner

Before sending your formal wedding announcements, you’ll want to know the basics of “when” and “where.” This means that you will need to have your wedding site and reception site scheduled first. If planning a religious ceremony, schedule with your clergy, and talk with him or her about what wedding sites and practices are acceptable to you both. Will the reception be held in the church hall? That will need to be scheduled, also. If you choose to use a reception center, visit those now to decide which fits best in your wedding theme and your wedding budget. Many excellent sites are listed in our “event locations” section.

Making the Announcement

Once you have scheduled a wedding date and site, you are ready to announce your wedding! If you choose to place an announcement in a newspaper, you can call them for pricing and suggestions on announcement wording. Below are listed phone numbers of various Utah Newspapers:

Davis County Clipper - Bountiful - 801-295-2251 Sanpete Messenger - Manti- 435-835-4241 The Salt Lake Tribune / Desert Morning News - 801-237-2911 The Daily Harold – Provo - 801-344-2533 The Standard Examiner – Ogden – 801-625-4230 The Harold Journal – Logan – 435-752-2121 The Spectrum – St. George – 435-674-6248 The Daily News – Cedar City – 435-674-6248

the basics Family

wedding planner

Your family is very important when it comes to wedding planning. Not only is your big day special to them, but their inclusion in your wedding is often one of the most memorable parts of your day. Many people choose their family members to be bridesmaids or groomsmen. For those who are not, do you want them dressed in coordinating colors for your reception line or for family pictures? Is there a traditional part that a certain family member plays in each wedding, such as leading a toast to the bride and groom? Many of your family members will be willing and happy to help you with wedding arrangements. You might consider making a list of jobs you’re willing to “farm out,” and then ask family members to look over the list and see if there are any jobs in which they would be willing to help with. For more information about who does what, visit: www.SaltLakeBride.com. Remembering them with a little gift and a huge “thank you” at the end of your wedding will leave both of you feeling great!

Bridal Shower

Enjoying your bridal shower is one of the most fun parts of being a bride! Most showers occur from two months to two weeks before the wedding. The bridal shower is typically hosted by the maid of honor. Of course, it can also be hosted by your mom, sister, aunt, or whomever else you (or your maid of honor) would like. Generally, whoever hosts the party pays for the party. However, it is not uncommon for all of the bridesmaids to pitch in if it is going to be a particularly expensive occasion. Remember, the shower can be anything from a picnic at the park, to a day at a beauty spa, to a formal dinner at a banquet hall. Your Bridal Shower gives you an opportunity to display pictures such as Bridal and Engagement shots. It is also the perfect time to show a video as a featured event or just have it playing during the shower. For information on what to include in the video, talk to you videographer and look at the Helpful Hints at the front of the Videography section. Some people are beginning to hold couple showers instead of a bridal shower. The fiancé is invited and the list of guests consists of both male and female friends and family. No matter which way you choose to do it, make sure you have fun and enjoy the attention you’ll be getting.

the basics

Rehearsal Dinner

wedding planner

This name describes the event exactly: the rehearsal dinner is the dinner after your wedding rehearsal. The dinner is usually held the night before the wedding. The couple and the wedding party will meet at the ceremony location and the officiant will go through the wedding process with them. Afterwards, the rehearsal dinner is held in celebration of the upcoming wedding. The rehearsal dinner is usually hosted (and paid for) by the groom’s parents. Sometimes the couple may choose to pay for the party, or it may be a collective effort by both sets of parents. The party can be formal or completely casual and does not need to be based on your wedding style (formal wedding doesn’t mean formal dinner). Typically, the rehearsal dinner guests will be the couple, their immediate family, and members of the wedding party. You may also choose to invite a few close friends and relatives who are not members of the wedding party. Make sure you get approval from the hosts for your total amount of guests. The main activity at a rehearsal dinner is toasting. Everyone will want to make a toast, especially it they won’t be able at the wedding. Since the party is hosted by the groom’s parents, they will usually make the first (and longest) toasts. This is a perfect time to show a video as a featured event or just have it playing during the dinner.  For information on what to include in the video, talk to you videographer and look at the Helpful Hints at the front of the Videography section.  You may also want to display pictures such as Bridal and Engagement shots. As bride and groom, you may choose to give your attendants and family members gifts at this time to thank them for all the help they have given you. Some couples just choose to give a toast to thank everyone that has been involved. Whatever you do, make sure you thank everyone somehow in your own personal way.

the bridal look While not everyone will notice your basic accessories (slip, shoes, etc.) everyone will notice your jewelry, hair, and makeup. These items are often what brides spend the most time in getting perfect. They may buy several necklaces, try a dozen hairstyles, and buy gobs of makeup before finding the perfect look. Try these tips to save time and money

Jewelry

wedding planner

One of the most important accessories is your jewelry. The necklace you wear will often be the second thing guests notice after your dress. As with all accessoriesmake sure your jewelry matches the style of the wedding and your own personal style. Often brides will choose a piece of jewelry that complements their headpiece or the beading on their gown. Many brides simply choose a pearl necklace. Pearls are very traditional for weddings and are often seen at celebrity and royalty weddings. You can choose to invest in a strand of real pearls, or maybe you just want a one-timeuse necklace made from artificial pearls. Whatever you choose, you’ll look great in pearls.  

Hair

Your hairstyle will make a huge style impact on your overall look. One of the main problems with hairstyles is that some brides choose an extremely extravagant hairstyle that they will regret when they look at the pictures in a couple years. Your best bet is to keep it as simple as possible. And don’t worry -- simple does not mean boring. There are many beautiful styles that were common decades ago and will still be common years from now. How many brides have you seen with a French twist? What about a bun? There are many styles from which to choose that are all traditional and all beautiful.   Try to keep these tips in mind when choosing your hairstyle: If your hair is thin, you may not want it pulled up into a do, for fear of it falling out. If your hair is very thick, it may be best to try to contain it, as with a braid or bun. If your hair is curly, let it be curly. Now is not the time to experiment with straighteners. You may choose to emphasize the curls by simply swirling them back into a loose up-do. If your hair is dead straight, try a French twist or another simple do that will detract from its straightness. If your hair is short, just leaving it down may help you feel more comfortable. Whatever you do, be sure to try your style well ahead of time. Last minute surprises aren’t usually good ideas in this department on your wedding day! Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

the bridal look

Makeup

Makeup is probably the hardest thing to decide. Luckily, there is one major test to weed out inappropriate makeup- black and white pictures. Do a test run with several different styles of makeup and several different colors, then have one of your friends or family take pictures of each look. Have the pictures developed in black and white and color. Now, go through the pictures and get rid of any styles that look horrible in black and white -- this generally includes makeup that is too dark or too unnatural. Next, go through the remaining styles in color and compare and contrast how each style makes you look. Is it a good look for a wedding day?   Brides usually look best in very natural colors and minimal makeup. This doesn’t mean just lathe on the lip gloss and walk out the door- it is still important that you feel that you look your best. Remember that you’ll be looking at your wedding pictures for years to come. Will you still be happy you wore that particular lipstick and eyeshadow? Remember your own sense of style. If you usually wear only light makeup, now is not the time to go heavy. Try to keep your wedding day makeup looking like an improved version of your usual makeup style. Every bride should look and feel her best on her wedding day. Make sure you do, too. Choose only accessories that you feel comfortable wearing and that you feel would accentuate the feeling of that special day. For more information visit: www.WeddingSoEasy.com. 20

Wedding Budget Begin your wedding planning by creating a budget of how much you have to spend, and where your dollars will count the most. For instance, if your dreams include a wedding lavish with flowers for backdrop and decorating, while Aunt Mary plans to make your wedding cake, you will probably need to allocate more of your budget to flowers than to wedding cakes. Remember to allocate the most to what is most important to you. Do you want to forgo a lavish reception and spend your money on a Caribbean cruise? Or have you always dreamed of a lavish Victorian reception in a beautiful reception hall? Deciding what is most important to you and your fiancé will help you to decide how best allocate your wedding budget. Once you know exactly what you would like, use the Wedding Budget sheet to plan and track exactly where your money will go. Who pays? In the modern world, it is not uncommon for the couple to pay for everything themselves, either because they are well-off financially or they think it is too awkward to ask their parents to pitch in. If you do happen to have both parents willing and able to help out with the costs, here’s the traditional list of who pays what:

wedding planner

Bride and/or her family: Ceremony location/decorations • Reception location/decorations and service Photography and videography • Food, beverages, and cake Bouquets for bridesmaids and flower girls Floral arrangements for ceremony and reception Invitations, announcements, and other stationery Bride's dress, veil, and accessories Transportation of wedding party to ceremony and reception sites Groom and/or his family: Bride's engagement ring and wedding bands Rehearsal dinner Bouquets for bridesmaids and flower girls Bride's bouquet, boutonnieres, and corsages Groom's wedding clothes Marriage license and officiant's fee Honeymoon Keep in mind that this list is just a guideline. Talk to both sets of parents ahead of time to see what they feel comfortable paying. The rest should be picked up by you and your fiancé. A budget is very important, especially if you are spending someone else’s money (your parents, or possibly your fiancé’s parents). Here is a basic list of what normal budget inclusions and the average percentages of what brides spend in each section. To figure out your amounts, just take your total budget and multiply it by the percentage listed. Example: $20,000 budget, Reception Location 9%, $20,000 x 9% (or 0.09) = $1,800. So, you would spend approximately $1,800 on your reception location. Ceremony Fee 2.5% Ceremony Decorations 1.5% Reception Location 9%

Reception Decorations 4.5% Food, Beverages and Service 34.5% Cake and Cutting Fee 3%

Wedding Gown 6.5% Veil and/or Headpiece 1% Bridal Accessories 1% Hair and Make-up 0.5% Massage, waxing, facial, etc. 0.5% Bouquets/Boutonnieres 2%

Band/DJ/Orchestra 6.5% Photographer 10% Videographer 10% Invitations 4% Car/Limo Rental 1.5% Wedding Favors 1.5%

Announcements/Planning

Helpful Announcement Hints Invitation Wording Are you wondering how to word the announcement? Here are a few of the most common wordings: Bride’s Parents Hosting: Mr. and Mrs. Peter J. Brown are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter Melissa Jane to Thomas Brian Smith son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael G. Smith Both Parents Hosting: Mr. and Mrs. Peter J. Brown & Mr. and Mrs. Michael G. Smith are pleased to announce the marriage of their children Melissa Jane Brown to Thomas Brian Smith Couple Hosting: Miss Melissa Jane Brown daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter J. Brown and Thomas Brian Smith son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael G. Smith are pleased to announce their marriage All of these examples would then be followed with something similar to this: On Friday, the 21st day of June, 2006 At six o’clock in the evening At the Royal Inn Restaurant Springfield, California Reception to follow Here are some variations of “are pleased to announce the marriage”: “Request the honor of your presence at the marriage” “Request the pleasure of your company at the marriage” “Invite you to celebrate the marriage” “Invite you to share in the happiness of the marriage” Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

Announcements/Planning

Remember: decide for yourself what form you prefer - it might be a mix of styles. Don’t worry too much about the wording -- all people really need to know is that you are in love, getting married, and want to include them in your special day! So, relax, enjoy this experience, and be sure to get the announcements mailed in plenty of time for the wedding! Six weeks lead time is not unreasonable.

Addressing Invitations

If you are like most couples, you’ll have hundreds of invitations to address. We’ve included some options below: Calligrapher: Pros: You will get a beautiful, formal look that everyone will compliment. Cons: Calligraphers can be very expensive, and sometimes hard to find. Write them yourself: Pros: You can get it done at your own pace, and have friends and family help. Cons: Not everyone who is willing to help has beautiful (or even legible) handwriting! Print them: Pros: You will get it done fast, with a uniform font that matches your invitations. Cons: Make sure to select a good quality printer whose work looks professional. Of course, it wouldn’t be a wedding task if there wasn’t something traditional you had to do. In the case of invitations, you must spell everything out -- no abbreviations. The only abbreviation allowed is for titles (Mr., Mrs., etc.). Here’s how to do it: Married Couple: Mr. and Mrs. Gregory Miller 345 Greentree Drive Plainfield, Vermont 12345 Couple with Different Last Names: Mrs. (Ms.) Nicole Hansen and Mr. Frank Roberts 65 Riverbank Avenue Lewiston, Illinois 23456 Couple with Children: Mr. and Mrs. Richard Potter and family 974 Redwood Court Smithville, Nevada 34567 (Continued on the next page) 36

Announcements/Planning

The inner envelope can be addressed much less formally: Married Couple: Suzanne and Gregory Miller Couple with Different Last Names: Nicole Hansen and Frank Roberts Couple with Children: Janet, Richard, Paula, and Nathan Potter Whatever you choose to do, make sure you give yourself enough time to address the invitations before your deadline to send them out! Whom To Invite and How Many Before you begin with your invitations, you should make a definite decision on the location of your reception. This is vital to deciding how many people to invite. Usually, you can invite about 25% more people than will fit in your reception location because that is the average of how many people will not be able to attend the wedding. For example, if your reception location can hold 300 people, count on inviting 375 guests.   With the wedding count in mind, make your list of potential guests. Now tally the count. If you have too many, go through the list again and see who you can do without inviting. (As a general rule, you can figure if you haven’t seen them for over five-ten years, you can probably do without them on your guest list.) Add the count again, and continue this process until you get the appropriate number. Cutting guests can be painful. Make sure you try to invite those who would be offended if they weren’t invited, such as your great aunt who sees you every Christmas. Always make sure you have both your parents and your fiancé’s parents make a list of people they really want to be invited. You will be able to know whom to invite on your parents’ list, just by figuring out if you’ve ever even met them, or if you aren’t really familiar with them. Your fiancé will be able to do the same for his parents’ list. Just make sure you talk to both parents about your guest cuts so that they either convince you otherwise, or save themselves embarrassment when they talk to the guest who was cut.

Decide what role you want your entertainer to play. Will they act as an emcee, host, coordinator and entertainer, or just play music? Do your personalities match? Go listen to them perform. The Utah Disc Jockey Association recommends that you ask the following questions:

Are you insured? Many responsible business owners carry liability insurance to protect their businesses and the consumer. Many locations are beginning to require proof of liability. Ask for proof of liability insurance such as a "Certificate of Liability."

Will you be willing to play requests and discuss music ahead of time? A versatile Disc Jockey is willing to listen to your suggestions, give you feedback and play from your desired song list. A professional Disc Jockey will also accept the fact you may not want certain songs played. A professional Disc Jockey cannot know everything about your musical preferences and entertainment needs without communication.

Do you use Professional Equipment? Ask your prospective Disc Jockey if he/ she works with professional audio equipment. If you are not sure, ask for their equipment list and check with a local music dealer or the A.D.J.A. to verify they are using professionalgrade sound gear. Do you provide backup equipment at my event? Although equipment failure is rare, do you really want your special occasion ruined because your Disc Jockey did not come prepared? It is also important to know if your Disc Jockey has a back-up plan in case of illness or an accident. Booking a reliable Disc Jockey is a very important decision for the success of your party. Does the Disc Jockey know the proper etiquette for your type of party? A professional Disc Jockey will assist you with the planning of your special day. Most professional entertainers will coordinate, emcee and provide the music that you desire.

How much time do you allow for set-up? Punctuality is a necessity. Most Disc Jockeys arrive at least one hour prior to the start time you've given them. Your entertainer should ideally be setup and in-place before your first guest walks through the door.

Do you provide a written contract? It is extremely important to have your booking confirmed in writing. Ask for a written agreement, especially if you are paying an initial retainer. The standard initial payment for entertainment services is 50%. If you are expecting a specific entertainer, make sure you get it in writing as well.

Will you be suitably dressed for our occasion? Specify the type of apparel that your Disc Jockey is expected to wear for your occasion. Formal attire or coat & tie are the most popular forms of attire. Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

Event Entertainment Helpful Hints


Do you belong to any professional associations or trade groups? An involved person shows a willingness to learn, network and share ideas. Belonging to a professional group reflect a caring attitude.

How long have you been in business? Experience brings knowledge of common problems and situations. Be sure your DJ has experience with your type of event. May we call your references? References are a major part of the entertainment business. Disc Jockey rates vary based on talent, popularity, experience, emcee ability, service, coordination, equipment needed, music knowledge, mixing ability, personality, professionalism, talent, creativity and other factors. Rates for the DJ industry vary greatly, ranging from $350.00 to $3,500.00 with an average of $1,200.00 for services that include delivery, set-up and tear down of a professional sound system, emcee services, coordination, music programming and 3 to 6 hours of entertainment. Other options that may not be included would be lighting effects, Karaoke equipment, props, dancers, a second entertainer, etc. The best price is not always the best deal, especially if you are planning a wedding. A full-service disc jockey company will normally invest 12 to 30 hours to your special event but it may appear that you are only paying for "4 hours". Consultations, music purchasing & editing, preparation, set-up and tear-down, education and other business related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special occasion.

AFTER THE VOWS*‌ 72% of all brides say they would have spent more time choosing their reception entertainment. During wedding planning, Brides say their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site and caterer - reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after their reception, 78% of Brides say they would have made the entertainment their highest priority! When asked, 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment. *St. Louis Bride and Groom Magazine, 2003�

Event Locations Helpful Hints If you are planning a religious wedding, talk to your clergy about what both of you envision. Make sure that you are specific in planning details, and make sure that all details are acceptable to your clergy. For instance, do you envision lots of candles at your wedding? Because of insurance concerns, some churches now use only battery operated candles. If you need to supply these, that will be an important part of your budget planning. Make sure to visit the sites you’re considering before finalizing your selections. Does each site offer what you need? Do they have availability when you want it? Are all of their services and facilities adequate – can all of your guests be accommodated? What are the overtime charges if your event goes over the scheduled time limit? Do they decorate the facility, or do you? When planning your wedding breakfast, brunch, dinner, or reception, you will need a count of guests attending, and an idea of a food and event budget that is acceptable. Most vendors will work within your budget, be it simple or extravagant. When signing a contract with your selected vendor(s), be specific as to what will be provided, how long the site will be available, and how much you will pay for the agreed-upon services. Remember that if your guests stay longer than is planned, you may be charged overtime for the use of the site, and for site-staff. Have fun! The event sites are a huge part of your wedding day. Once you have selected your sites, relax and enjoy, and let your site take care of the specifics! Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

Flowers & Floral Preservation Helpful Hints What Flowers Do I Need?

Flowers, Decor & Rentals

Weddings are by far the most flower-oriented events in the world. Here are all the types of flowers that people like to have at a wedding. Luckily, only about half of these are actually “required.” Bridal bouquet - Ah, the bouquet that the bride holds! Stuff that makes the pictures and memories. It is always the biggest, most beautiful bouquet of all. Maid of honor's and bridesmaids' bouquets - These are bouquets for the women in the wedding party. They can either be miniatures of the bridal bouquets, or a completely different style and/or color. Boutonnieres for the groom, best man, dads, and grandfathers - Boutonnieres are very important so that your guests can distinguish who is part of the bridal party/ immediate family. Generally, the groom’s is different or more elaborate than the rest. Corsages for moms and grandmothers Corsages are bigger boutonnieres that are worn on the wrist. They help distinguish immediate family. Flowers to decorate the ceremony venue (Optional) Often ceremony sites will not need very many decorations, but if you choose to do so, you may use some flowers here and then again at the reception hall. Flower girl's basket of petals - Everyone knows that the flower girl needs petals to sprinkle on the ground! Make sure the basket is proportionate to your flower girl.

Reception table centerpieces (Optional) Most centerpieces are made with flowers. However, it is becoming increasingly popular to use other items instead to save money. Other reception flowers (place settings, doorways, etc.) - (Optional) Many brides choose to decorate their reception hall with either flowers or ribbon/tulle. Some receptions halls may offer in-house decorating. Flower-covered arch or huppah (Optional) Arches and huppahs can be left plain, or decorated with flowers for a more festive look. Floral wreaths for bride's and/or bridesmaids' hair - (Optional) Some brides choose to have their bridesmaids wear floral wreaths instead of having bouquets. You may also use both. Rose petals for tossing - (Optional) There are so many different things to throw now that petals are not very common. If you do choose to use them, 150 guests require 10 bags.

Floral Preservation Fresh Flowers can be preserved to retain their delicate beauty, form and color for years to come. Floral preservation is a process that extracts moisture from the flowers, while maintaining the blooms' natural state and color.  It is an art form that requires precision and a professional's touch and experience. The age and the condition of your flowers will play a big role in how well they preserve. If you plan on preserving your flowers, be sure to let your florist know, and ask that they use as little wire as possible. Preservation will produce a slight color change. White flowers will become creamy and some colors, especially red flowers, will darken. Most flowers preserve well including roses, lilies, calla lilies, and other traditional wedding flowers. Some flowers like daisies, chrysanthemums, dahlias, may not preserve successfully. For more information visit: www.WeddingSoEasy.com

Food, Cakes & Catering Helpful Hints

Food & Catering

Cakes The wedding cake is tradition itself!! It usually reflects the theme and colors of the wedding. You may choose a traditional tiered cake, elaborate with flowers. You may also choose a more modern cake using a variety of colors, shapes, and arrangements -- from gift box cakes to skyscraper cakes, and from mixtures of shapes to brightly colored flowers and ribbons. Basically, there is no longer a pressing rule that the cake must be white. Often, it is easy to pick your style of cake simply by looking at one of the components of your decorations. For example, some brides choose to duplicate the lace pattern from their dress onto the wedding cake; other couples may have a beach or garden theme that would work well with a cake. After you’ve taken care of the “sight” details, you’ll want to focus on “taste” details. Even if you have the most beautiful cake, if it tastes bad, you’ll regret it. One of the best things to do is to set aside some time to “taste-test” cakes at different bakeries. Most bakeries are willing to do this, and it is by far the best way to compare your potential bakers. Ask to try all the different flavors you have even thought of using, along with all the possible fillings and icings. A word on icings: many couples are choosing to use the very modern, very sleek fondant icing for their cake instead of the usual butter cream. However, not only is fondant more expensive, but some people do not like its taste as well as traditional icings.

So, if you’re thinking about using fondant, do a taste comparison, or ask the bakery if they can do the smooth look using butter cream.

Food & Catering

Cake pricing includes two things: the actual price of the cake (whether per slice or per cake) and the amount of the cake you order. As mentioned before, you’ll want to have much of your wedding planning done before you cake shop, including having a rough count of guests expected. If you are having a lot of guests, but are on a tight budget, you might dot a small-scale cake of your ideal style, taste, and decorations and then have sheet cakes to serve when that cake is gone. Some couples choose to serve alternate desserts as well, so they order only the main wedding cake. How and when do you cut the cake? Usually, the cake is cut at the end of the reception. Many couples will tell the DJ or band a certain time that they want to cut the cake, and the band announcer will inform your guests when it is about to happen. You may also choose someone else to announce it to your guests. When cutting the cake, the groom will put his hand on top of the bride’s hand as they cut the bottom layer of cake (don’t cut the top one- you’ll save it for your anniversary). Someone else should be assigned to cutting the entire cake, and saving your anniversary piece. No matter what style of cake you choose, you should absolutely love it. Don’t be persuaded by other’s ideas- just choose the cake you love, and let it be a reflection of you. Catering One of the most expensive parts of a reception is the cost of catering. Luckily, it is one of the best and most memorable parts of a wedding too. Generally, caterers will charge by person, so the more guests you have the more you should plan on spending. There are so many different types of meals you can have- this list will help you find the best one for your style and budget. Breakfast, Brunch, or Tea These are usually done for a morning or afternoon reception. Often they are the least expensive choice. These meals are especially good for spring or summer 82

weddings, when receptions are typically more casual. All of these can be formal (sit-down), but they are usually served buffet style. Lunch - This is a nice median between a brunch and a dinner. Also, it is typically in the middle for price and formality. If you are having an afternoon wedding and want it to be a little more formal than a brunch, you will be better off with a lunch meal. This meal is great year round.

Food & Catering

Cocktails or Dessert Only - These are typically the simplest meals. Cocktails means mostly just drinks, while desserts only is exactly how it sounds. These can be less expensive than other meals, but sometimes the costs of drinks or fancy pastries can really add up. You’ll need to account for everyone wanting to try a little of everything. These options are great for short receptions, or receptions that are late at night. Dinner - This meal is by far the most popular. It may also be the most expensive, especially if you choose a formal sit-down dinner. Generally, if you are having a dinner, it will be for a semi-formal to formal reception. Even though the dinner meal can be served buffet style, dinner has always been considered the most formal meal. When choosing a caterer, you’ll want to know their specialty, and it would be best to choose someone who works well with whatever meal you choose. Once you decide on the type of meal you want, you’ll choose the specific foods you’d like. It is usually best to choose foods that you love, but you should also consider your guests (ex: vegetarians, other ethnicities, etc.). Good caterers will let you sample their food before making your catering choice. After you’ve made all your decisions, make sure you book the caterer for your reception and sign a contract with them. Remember to read all the fine print. A few weeks before the wedding you should call them to confirm the reception date, time, and location, as well as the menu you chose. Then call them again a couple days before the wedding for a last minute confirmation. For more information visit: www.WeddingSoEasy.com Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

Formal Attire Helpful Hints Bridal Gowns From the time you were a little girl you might have wondered how your wedding dress would look. Would it be sparkly? Would it be straight or full? Would it have a long train? Now that you’re engaged, it’s time to make that dream a reality! What you wear on your wedding day will impact your memories more than any other part of your day.

Different bridal shops have positioned themselves to serve different customer agendas. Some offer services such as exclusive designs or customized gowns, while others specialize in rentals. Look for a store that specializes in meeting your particular needs. Make a list of the shops nearby and visit as many as needed to find one that meets your criteria. Find a shop that you feel good about. Are the display gowns new styles, and well displayed? Is the shop clean, neat and, organized? Do you feel that the management is passionate and detail-oriented? A professional bridal consultant is one who is experienced and will focus on you in a positive, uplifting and friendly way. She knows how to find and show gowns that will match your personality, flatter your figure, and be appropriate for your venue. Plan to work with the same consultant on each return visit if you can. She will become your new best friend! It is in her best interest to make sure you are well taken-care of so that you will refer your friends to her bridal salon. Once you find a salon or store that makes you feel special, make arrangements for a try-on session. Don’t be afraid to fall in-love with a gown. The Holy Grail experience of shopping every store and trying on every dress can be confusing and detrimental. You might end up buying the gown you are wearing when you get sick of shopping, and somebody starts pushing your buttons! Don’t let that happen to you. Whether your budget is large or small, this is your big day, and you want to enjoy every moment! Plan to take only one or two trusted individuals when you shop. They will offer their opinions, but trust your instinct and choose the dress that YOU love. Leave small children at home since they get bored easily and can be a distraction. If you already have a veil, shoes or other items, take them with you from the very beginning so that you can coordinate your look. The right slip and bra will make a big difference. Select accessories such as your veil, headpiece, jewelry and shoes while you are wearing your gown so that you achieve the most pleasing overall wedding-day outfit possible.

Start shopping for your gown the moment you know you’re getting married! You will need your dress for your bridal pictures, and most photographers ask that you have your bridal sitting a month before your wedding. Be aware that delivery for ordered gowns (as opposed to off-the-rack gowns) can take up to 4 months. Then, once the gown is on-hand, most gowns will need some alterations. This can add a few more weeks until your gown is ready.


Expect to pay for at least half of your gown initially. Since policies vary from store-to-store, be sure that you read and understand any agreements that you are asked to sign.    Once you find the perfect gown and accessories, much of the rest of your wedding details will fall into place.  Enjoy your wedding planning!

Your bridesmaids are your best friends. These tips will help you keep them that way! Many brides go all out with the bridesmaids’ attire, having everyone wear the same color, style, and accessories. If this is in your plan, go for it! However, other plans are just as suitable. For example, there are three different ways to match your bridesmaids’ dresses in a way that will allow their individuality. First, they may all wear the same dress style, selecting their favorite colors from your wedding swatches. Second, you can choose one or two colors and let them choose the style they want (from the same manufacturer so the colors match). Third, you can let them choose their own style and their own color from a list that you have compiled of “acceptable” dresses. When selecting a dress option, remember your bridesmaids’ budgets. If your bridesmaids are paying for their own gowns, it’s a good idea to keep their dress costs low. Will they wear the dress again? The more choices they have in their dress’ style and color, the more likely they are to wear the dress again. If you do choose an expensive dress that may not be worn again (i.e.: if it’s very formal), then it’s a good idea for you to help with their costs.

Men’s Attire Since men are generally not clothing shoppers, the bride will have to make sure she gives her fiancé a deadline to find a tux. Generally, it is best if the groom gets his tux at about three to four months before the wedding. He’ll then have to apply some pressure to his groomsmen to get their attire in a timely manner as well. If they wait until the last minute, they may not be able to find a matching tux, or all the accessories they need. The biggest question with men’s attire is whether to rent or to buy. This is a good question, just as any rent vs. buy question is. The groom and groomsmen need to determine if/how many times they will wear their tuxes after the wedding. Since rentals only cost about 15-30% of the original price, a tux would have to be worn a couple of times a year to cover the cost of buying it. Even if grooms or groomsmen don’t plan on wearing a tux that much, some grooms still choose to buy their wedding tuxedo. Tuxes are not the only option for grooms and groomsmen. If your wedding is going to be casual, or semiformal, you may choose to wear a suit. The suit will be more- or less-formal depending on what time of day the wedding is held. However, if you are having an ultraformal event in the evening, the occasion will usually call for a black tail-coat tux with black accessories and a white tie. You will be able to tone that down a little if the formal wedding is in the daytime or in the summer.

One of the most important things to remember is that you need to rent or buy matching tux accessories, as well. These include formal shoes and matching socks. (You don’t want to wake up the day of the wedding and realize the nicest shoes you own are your three-year-old Dr Martens!) Usually, the store where you buy/rent your tux will have accessories for sale/rent as well. Also – remember that if you buy/rent your tux and all of the groomsmen tuxes at the same place, you may be able to get free rental on accessories, or a deal on the whole outfit.

Gown Preservation Having you gown professionally preserved will protect you investment and ensure that it can be passed down for generations. Ask the professional to walk you through the process and show you a sample of a preserved gown. Find out what is included in the package and what the guarantee covers.

Don’t forget that your groomsmen have to match your attire. You’ll have to make sure that you still stand out, though -- since you don’t want people thinking your best man is the groom! There are three different ways to make this distinction. First, you can have them wear slightly less formal attire than yours, in matching colors. Second, you can have them wear different vest/tie colors than yours, possibly matching the bridesmaids dresses. Third, you can wear a more ornate boutonniere, either by having more flowers, more variation of flowers, or completely different flowers (in a coordinating color).

Gift Registry Helpful Hints Where Should I Register? Many couples wonder where to register. It is best to have at least two selections for those who choose to use a registry: a store with prices on the lowerend of the price range, and one on the medium-tohigh end of the price range. You may also choose to include a more expensive site. Also consider where your guests live. The best place to register is somewhere that has stores in (nearly) every state. However, if you live in the same state as most of your guests, or if you know of specialty stores in their state (check online), then registering in those stores can also be an option.

Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

97

Gift Registry & Jewelry

When registering, look at the store’s policies on tracking, exchanges, selection, etc. These “perks” are really important for you and your guests. For example, some registries don’t take an item off your registry list after it has been purchased -- making it easy for you to get doubles. Exchange policies are very important to check – how long will you be able to return/exchange gifts? One month? One week? Registries are valuable tools for you and your guests. Enjoy!

Jewelry, Hair, and Makeup Helpful Hints  While not everyone will notice your basic accessories (slip, shoes, etc.) everyone will notice your jewelry, hair, and makeup. These items are often what brides spend the most time in getting perfect. They may buy several necklaces, try a dozen hairstyles, and buy gobs of makeup before finding the perfect look. Try these tips to save time and money

Health & Beauty

Jewelry One of the most important accessories is your jewelry. The necklace you wear will often be the second thing guests notice after your dress. As with all accessories- make sure your jewelry matches the style of the wedding and your own personal style. Often brides will choose a piece of jewelry that complements their headpiece or the beading on their gown. Many brides simply choose a pearl necklace. Pearls are very traditional for weddings and are often seen at celebrity and royalty weddings. You can choose to invest in a strand of real pearls, or maybe you just want a one-time-use necklace made from artificial pearls. Whatever you choose, you’ll look great in pearls.  Hair Your hairstyle will make a huge style impact on your overall look. One of the main problems with hairstyles is that some brides choose an extremely extravagant hairstyle that they will regret when they look at the pictures in a couple years. Your best bet is to keep it as simple as possible. And don’t worry -- simple does not mean boring. There are many beautiful styles that were common decades ago and will still be common years from now. How many brides have you seen with a French twist? What about a bun? There are many styles from which to choose that are all traditional and all beautiful.   Try to keep these tips in mind when choosing your hairstyle: If your hair is thin, you may not want it pulled up into a do, for fear of it falling out. If your hair is very thick, it may be best to try to contain it, as with a braid or bun. If your hair is curly, let it be curly. Now is not the time to experiment with straighteners. You may choose to emphasize the curls by simply swirling them back into a loose up-do. If your hair is dead straight, try a French twist or another simple do that will detract from its straightness. If your hair is short, just leaving it down may help you feel more comfortable. Whatever you do, be sure to try your style well ahead of time. Last minute surprises aren’t usually good ideas in this department on your wedding day! 102

Makeup Makeup is probably the hardest thing to decide. Luckily, there is one major test to weed out inappropriate makeup- black and white pictures. Do a test run with several different styles of makeup and several different colors, then have one of your friends or family take pictures of each look. Have the pictures developed in black and white and color. Now, go through the pictures and get rid of any styles that look horrible in black and white -- this generally includes makeup that is too dark or too unnatural. Next, go through the remaining styles in color and compare and contrast how each style makes you look. Is it a good look for a wedding day?  

Every bride should look and feel her best on her wedding day. Make sure you do, too. Choose only accessories that you feel comfortable wearing and that you feel would accentuate the feeling of that special day. For more information visit: www.WeddingSoEasy.com.

Health & Beauty

Brides usually look best in very natural colors and minimal makeup. This doesn’t mean just lathe on the lip gloss and walk out the door- it is still important that you feel that you look your best. Remember that you’ll be looking at your wedding pictures for years to come. Will you still be happy you wore that particular lipstick and eyeshadow? Remember your own sense of style. If you usually wear only light makeup, now is not the time to go heavy. Try to keep your wedding day makeup looking like an improved version of your usual makeup style.

Honeymoons & Travel Helpful Hints Out or Town Guests If you have guests coming from out of town that need accommodations, it may be easier for you to make the arrangements. That will allow everyone to be closer and make transportation easier. Also, there are usually discounts offered when you book several rooms at a single location. Many locations offer fee airport shuttles as well. Local friends or relatives could be asked to help with transportation. A larger hotel or resort usually has many on-site amenities which may be more convenient for your guests. A Bed and Breakfast location may offer a homier, relaxed feeling. You may want to provide area maps with places to go and thing to do in the area. If your out of town guests stay a one location, you may be receive a discounted or free night at the same location. This is a wonderful way to start you honeymoon.

Honeymoon & Travel

Your Wedding Day You may want to hire a limousine, horse-drawn carriage or some other means of transportation for you and your guests. Ask questions to find out what is available. Are the rates based on time, distance or a flat fee? Is there a wedding package? Are amenities and gratuity included? What are the payment terms? Can the vehicles be decorated? Make sure the vehicles are properly licensed and insured. Make reservations early! Honeymoon As with other aspects of the wedding, the plans for the honeymoon need to be made well in advance. A travel agent is a good place to start as they will have information to help you decide exactly where you want to go and what you want to do. Often times they can put together a package which will include everything you want. Ask around to get recommendations for a good travel agent and places to go. Be sure you are comfortable with whom you chose and that they will work with you to make this a wonderful experience. If you are leaving the country you may need to get passports or visas. This takes several weeks, so don’t wait until the last minute. Pack early for the wedding night and honeymoon. Pack clothes that are appropriate for where you are going. If you are driving, make sure you have maps and that you vehicle is in good working order. Leave travel plans with you family and arrange for someone to look after things while you are gone. Relax and enjoy!! 106

Photography & Photo Booths Helpful Hints  How to find a good one  A picture says a thousand words! These keepsakes will be treasured for generations. So how do you choose the perfect photographer? Begin by getting references from friends. Did any of your friends or relatives get married recently? Ask them if they were pleased with the service they got. Look at their pictures. You might also ask for a referral from your other wedding professionals. Pick several and get a price quote, or schedule an in-person meeting to discuss their work. Keep in mind that you’ll need to be very relaxed around your photographer, so if you have even the slightest problem with them, you should keep looking.  Once you have narrowed down a list of photographers to meet in person, you’ll want to schedule those meetings all within one or two weeks so that you have a fresh mind for comparison. Make sure you view multiple samples of their work, so that you will have a good perspective of their style and ability. When you finally choose the company you will be working with, make sure you read the contract thoroughly. There are two main clauses to be careful about: 1) exclusive right to photography (none of your guests can take pictures) and 2) random staff selection (you may not get the person you’ve been talking to/dealing with). Unless you are completely okay with these clauses, you’ll either want to renegotiate the contract or find a different company to work with. When all is said and done, make sure you feel confident in your vendor selection. You’ll want to have a great photographer that you will be happy to work with on your wedding day.   Picture List Here are some of the most classic pictures that you might want for your wedding: Getting Ready • Bride’s clothes hanging on the wardrobe, on the bedpost, or over a chair • Bridesmaids doing bride's hair and makeup • Bride and bridesmaids getting dressed, applying makeup • Mom helping bride with one last detail, such as veil • Full-length shot of bride in gown checking herself in mirror • Detail of clothing, shoes, garter, something borrowed, something blue • Touching shot of bride with parent(s) and/or stepparent(s) • Touching shot of bride with sibling(s) • Bride hugging honor attendant Local Wedding Planning – SaltLakeBride.com

Videography Helpful Hints Your wedding video will help you relive that day better than anything else. Some brides say they only realized how great their wedding was after watching their wedding video. If you feel that a relative or friend can produce a video that will compare in quality to a professional, you are going to be very disappointed. It is advisable that you take special care in selecting someone with both the experience and reputation you need.  Make sure the videographer's equipment is state-of-the-art, and ask to view a few samples of his or her previous work. Look for professional creativity, bright, clear, rich videography, and special effects that enhance the scene, not detract from it. The audio should also be crisp and clear. Video, It’s a true miracle of our time. Don’t miss out on it! A Professional video will capture the emotion, sights & sounds of your special day as they actually happened, not just the posed or frozen moments in time but actual time itself. What should a professional wedding video cost? It should be no surprise that a good wedding video is not cheap. But it is a great value. Wedding videos in Utah usually range from $1000-3500. The price you pay will likely result in the quality you receive. It is very important to plan enough time for videography. Make sure to plan time between events. This will insure your videographer and photographer will not be rushed. Make sure your photographer understands how important your video is to you and that you would like the imaging time to be split up equally.

Videography

A Videographers participation with a professional organization is a good indication of their desire to not just call themselves a professional videographer, but to actually be one! Locally there is UPVA (Utah Professional Videographers Association), and Internationally there is WEVA (Wedding & Event Videographers Association). These two well respected organizations help videographers stay on the cutting edge of current styles, techniques and 121
