Traditionally, the groom sees the bride for the first time the moment she walks down the aisle. There are even superstitions that say there will be bad luck if the groom sees the bride before that!
For those of you who want to bypass tradition (and superstition), though, having a First Look wedding photo shooting before the ceremony is a really good option, as it can help you ease off the nerves, and it can lead to some pretty emotional and unique wedding photos too!
What are some of the most original ideas for a First Look photo shoot that’s really special? We have gathered them right below – keep reading and find out more.
Use props. Balloons, paper fans, flowers, action toys of your favorite movie characters – you name it and you can include it in this moment. This is a good idea because it will help you incorporate your personality, your wedding theme, or just bits and pieces of the things you like into this special photo shooting. It can also help you ease off the nerves, as it will offer you something to hold and cling on to.
Use humor. Are you a quirky couple? Want your First Look photos to be really fun and unique? Plan a funny surprise for your loved one by showing up dressed in your pyjamas or even a funny costume. The shock on their face and the laughter that will ensue will be priceless – and having this caught on camera will definitely make your wedding photo album more special!
Include your bridal party. This is a really lovely way of making your bridesmaids and groomsmen feel special and to include them in this amazing moment. Call them in for the First Look and it will definitely lead to some pretty emotional moments!
Make it musical. Want to create a really emotional First Look? Sing something before the groom sees you (or before you see the bride). It will make for such amazing, romantic, unforgettable memories and it will make your loved one feel SO special!

There’s nothing quite as grand (and as stressful) as planning a wedding. There’s simply no way in the world anyone can ever say planning their wedding was a piece of cake – especially since there are oh-so-many things you have to keep in mind!
What are some of the mistakes you may want to avoid making?
We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
• You think things should only be done one way. No, they don’t, especially not in 2019. You don’t have to wear a white dress and it doesn’t even have to be a dress per se (have you seen those designer pantsuits? They are stunning!). And no, you don’t have to wear your hair up – feel free to let it down, free as your soul and your dreams!
• You don’t think of your guests. These people are truly wonderful for having traveled so far for your wedding! They deserve to be treated like royalty, really. Think of their entertainment and comfort throughout the wedding. Think of how they will get to your wedding. And definitely take the time to greet each table – it can make such a huge difference in how they feel!
• You overdo it with the décor. If you want an ultra-over-the-top wedding, then so be it. But most trends these days point towards minimalism – and why wouldn’t you go for that? It’s cleaner, prettier, and easier to pull off in a balanced and tasteful way.
• You choose a “trendy” lip color. You can do this, yes. But take responsibility for it if you do it! Will you like it twenty years from now as you shuffle through your wedding photos? If you think there’s even the slightest doubt on this, then you might want to reconsider and choose a classic shade – like a nude, pink, or red, for example.
• You skimp out on your gifts. Show your bridesmaids and your groomsmen you really appreciate them – pamper them with something unique and pretty, something they don’t get every day. It can make SUCH a huge difference!

Every couple is unique
in their own way – and as such, every wedding should be unique too. Of course,
wedding trends can inspire you to create an event that mirrors your style and
personality – but how about your love story? How about the things that define
you as a couple, the road you’ve walked on to reach this point, the moments you

to include that in the wedding as well – and following, we have gathered some
of the best tips to help you make your Big Day more personal. Read on and find
the wedding with the proposal. The moment of the proposal is one of the most
important ones in your lives as a couple – so it only makes sense that you
would include this in the wedding. If the proposal happened somewhere special
or if a distinctive element was included in it, you could bring that into your
wedding too. For instance, let’s say he proposed in New York City – then you
could incorporate the Statue of Liberty in something cute, like the welcome
bags or the wedding favors.
them with the menu. If you and your loved one have foods that mean something
for you – such as foods you always make when you have a date night, the first
food you ate together, or foods you discovered in your travels, you should
definitely include them in your wedding menu. Furthermore, if you have special
foods that celebrate the places you come from or your ancestry, you should
include those too.
them with the theme. Do you have a favorite book or a favorite movie? You could
definitely pull off an elegant wedding incorporating those themes. For
instance, if you like Harry Potter, you can include motifs from this movie/
book into your wedding. For instance, you could use potion bottles for the
wedding centrepieces, and you can group guests at large rectangular tables
according to their “House” or at smaller tables, according to your favorite

We don’t generally like to think of the
worst that could happen – and much less for such a special day as our wedding
However, being prepared is always better
than feeling sorry that you didn’t “think of it”, and this is where wedding
insurance comes in.
What are some of the most important things
you should know about this type of insurance and why would you get it?
Read on and find out more.
Wedding insurance will give you
the peace of mind to simply go on with your wedding planning and then enjoy
your Big Day, as you so very much deserve. This type of insurance policy can
cover you in case of property damage, body injuries, forced cancellations, and
so on. Obviously, as mentioned in the beginning, most people are not very keen
to think of these worst case scenarios – but it’s always best to be safer,
rather than sorry, right?
Wedding insurance will not add
too much to your spent budget either – but it can be a real life saver. Imagine
luxurious items getting broken by an uncle who has had one too many drinks, and
imagine how you would feel if you had to pay for those. Isn’t it better to pay
for the insurance policy and cover yourself for this kind of situations?
Last, but definitely not least,
wedding insurance will not add to the hassle of the wedding planning either.
Acquiring such an insurance policy is a fairly straightforward process, it
costs less than you imagine, and it can really provide you with the tranquility
In the end, it all narrows down
to one question: are you an absolute optimist and you simply hope that nothing
will go terribly wrong, or are you feeling rather anxious about the things that
could go wrong regardless of how well you plan the Big Day? If you fall in the
latter category, definitely go for wedding insurance – it is without doubt the
best thing you can do for your health, for your mental state, and for your

If you have been tasked with the planning
bridal shower, you definitely want everything about it to be unforgettable,
both for the bride and for the guests too.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to
stick to the traditional bridal shower held at home. You can always think of a
unique alternative that will be enjoyed by everyone!
What are some of the best bridal shower
We have some tips for you – so read on and
find out more.
Pool party. Did someone say
summer? There’s truly no other better way to celebrate summer, other than by
organizing a pool party. If you know the bride would be in on this, and if you
know the guests will love it too, there’s no reason not to plan a pool party
for her bridal shower. Everyone will have so much fun!
Makeover party. Making a
makeover the central entertainment piece of the bridal shower will be so fun
for all the ladies! You can actually make everyone feel really pampered by
hiring stylists and makeup artists to change your guests’ looks while you all
chit-chat, have fun, and the bride opens her gifts.
Wine tasting. If your friend is
a big wine lover and if you know the other guests would definitely fancy the
idea too, wine tasting is a really good way to celebrate. It’s classy, it’s
fun, and it’s far more unique than a classic bridal shower – so it has all the
ingredients to be a real success among guests.
A special class. How about
turning this bridal shower into a special class the ladies can learn something
from? It can be a painting class, a cooking class, or anything else you know
the bride would genuinely enjoy. In between the lessons, she can open the gifts
and thank everyone for their wonderful gesture, and then you can all return to
having fun color, yarn, or whatever else your main theme may be!
