Of all the events in one’s life, his/her wedding is most definitely among the top most important ones. Tying the knot is indeed a huge step for anyone and this is why most of the brides and grooms out there will want their wedding to turn out perfectly.

If you want to have a holiday wedding, you definitely know that you’re in for a “double party”–which also means “double the trouble”when it comes to planning too. How to plan a Christmas or New Year’s Eve wedding and stay sane throughout the process? Here are some tips:

  • Sit down and plan. Really plan. Think of a concrete theme (and not just “Christmas wedding”, but something even narrower such as “Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus wedding”for example). Think of the holiday celebrated and keep all those elements you genuinely enjoy. Get rid of those things you don’t like.
  • You don’t have to overdo it. Pick some elements and make them your “holiday elements”. Sometimes, it can be quite difficult to blend Christmas or New Year’s Even with a wedding, but with a bit of creativity it’s doable.
  • Bring this holiday into your food, drinks and dessert as well. For instance, if you are having a Christmas wedding, why not go for a turkey-based main dish? Why not bring apple and cinnamon in a delicious signature cocktail? Why not have your cake inspired by the rich, sweet flavors of Christmas?

If you feel that planning for such a wedding is too much to handle, don’t worry –it’s natural that you feel this way. Contact Apropos Creations and we will design, plan and coordinate your wedding –and all that you will be left to do is actually enjoy your Big Day.

Wedding planning is exciting, confusing and stressful at the same time. Most of the ladies do not even realize just how much work is put into creating wedding that are unforgettable. In fact, until you got to the part where you started planning your wedding, you were probably the same as well.

How do you actually do this? How do you bring together so many details, in such a short time span and how do you make sure everything goes perfect on your Big Day? Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Do not lose focus. Sure, the huge number of things you have to deal with can indeed be overwhelming, but it is essential that you keep yourself focused and that you don’t stress out. Keep your cool and start writing down a list of the things you have to do before the wedding day.
  • One of the first things to choose is the wedding theme. Most of the times, brides acquire inspiration from lots of sources such as magazines and websites. Also, they acquire inspiration from the season in which their wedding will take place as well.
  • Once you have a wedding theme and an approximate number of guests, you should start searching for a venue. Bear in mind that you can really make your life much simpler if you choose a venue that can offer more than just the location proper. Some venues offer full-service wedding packages and others will be able to recommend you with the best vendors in the area, so that you don’t stress out about that too.

If you feel that things are getting out of control, don’t panic. Call Wise Girl Weddings and they will be able to help you plan the perfect wedding. With their experience, know-how and passion, your wedding is bound to turn out magical!

Without any trace of doubt, being proposed to (or proposing) is one of the most important moments in your life –and you will definitely want to capture the joy and enthusiasm associated with this event in a photography session worthy of a glossy magazine. And if you want to tear yourself apart from the engagement photo ideas that have already become a cliché, check out with the following fun tips and acquire some inspiration for your own photo shoot.

  • Carnival. There’s nothing more exciting, childish and romantic than a carnival. Ask your photographer to take photos of you and your fiancéwhile having fun with some traditional carnival games and you’ll be the star of a unique and beautiful engagement album. Everything you do at the carnival - from a rollercoaster to sharing some cotton candy - can turn into a very artistic photo.
  • Color splash. Use colored powder for a romantic “fight”between you and your fiancéand ask your photographer to take photos of it. This can turn into huge fun –and it will all be immortalized in your engagement album forever!
  • Chalk on the sidewalk. If you feel childish, why not draw some “background”for your photos by using chalk? Childish flowers, butterflies and a smiling sun can be the perfect background for a “proposal”and they will all contribute to a very unique engagement album.
  • In love with a particular decade’s fashion? You can have tons of fun by organizing a “vintage”photo shoot. Pick a decade (the 20s, for example), dress up and allow your photographer to shoot some amazing photos.

Unfortunately, we are human and we cannot remember all the things we would want to. Your wedding day is most likely extremely important to you though and you will want to keep its memory fresh forever.

That is precisely where wedding photography comes in. Photographs will maintain everything alive in your mind and they will bring back memories of the most beautiful day of your life. Who should be included in the photos, though? Here are some tips on how to make sure your wedding album turns out just as you want it:

  • As the newlyweds, you will most likely have to take photos with everyone invited. However, you can group co-workers and people you are not extremely close to in larger group photos. This way, they will not feel excluded and you will not have to take photos with each and every one of them (which could take you quite some time if you have many guests).
  • Don’t forget to take separate photos with the following: your parents, the groomsmen, the maids of honor, the flower girl and the ring bearer, your grandparents and all the other important people in your life. Your photographer will advise you on how to group people into photos. For instance, the groomsmen and the maids of honors may take a picture together with the two of you in the middle.
  • You should also have pictures on your own as well. The bride’s portrait photos, the groom’s portrait photos and the photos shot with the two of you together are extremely important and very frequently, they will be given a lot of attention.
