Kobe. Wedding Rings. August 02nd , 2018.
This is why having an emergency kit on hand comes in handy—unfortunately, sometimes zippers break, buttons pop and trains rip, so it`s good to have a needle and thread on standby. (Same goes for stain remover if the morning mimosas take a spill on a garment.) Help adjust the bride`s veil and smooth out her train before she goes down the aisle too. Learn how to bustle the bride`s dress. It doesn`t matter if you learn how to tie or button the bustle during a fitting or the night before the wedding—just make sure you know how to bustle the gown quickly for the wedding day. (It can take a few tries, especially if there are ribbons involved.) Make sure the bride eats and drinks throughout the day. Even if she`s too jittery to eat breakfast, carve out a few minutes of the morning for her to eat something substantial to keep her energy up—a granola bar is better than nothing. Throughout the day, refresh her mimosas and water glass (especially her water glass) and get her a plate from the buffet at dinner. And if you notice she`s had nothing but champagne at the reception—which happens!—make sure she takes a few sips of water between each one.
Steps to a Better Engagement Ring Selfie. You have the perfect ring. Now, get that `gram you always dreamed of. If you just got engaged, chances are you`ll be sharing the great news through an Instagram engagement ring selfie (or by sharing your proposal on our sister site HowHeAsked.com). While you may not be into mirror selfies, post-workout selfies or duck-face selfies, the ring selfie is something sacred. Get the photo just right by following a few simple rules of thumb—er, ring finger. Lighting is everything. If you`re not outside, set up your shot near a window for some natural light. If you take an iPhone photo in a dimly lit room, you`re pretty much guaranteed a blurry photo. Flourescents and yellow bulb lights aren`t much better. Trust us–you want natural sunlight. Whether you`re inside or out, watch out for tricky shadows. Know thy ring. Experiment with the angle of your shot so you capture the most amazing qualities of your ring. Love the unique setting? Take a photo on an angle to highlight it. Can`t get over the shape of your stone? Try an overhead shot (but remember, skip the flash). Get your nails done. Everyone wants to see the ring, but no one wants to see your hangnails. If your fiancé caught you with a surprise proposal and you`re due for a manicure, but just can`t wait to snap a photo, put on a little lotion and get creative with your pose. Hold hands with your fiancé, frame your nails out of the shot or do a fist pump pose at the camera—why not?.
Top Tips to Choosing Your Wedding Party. They`re your support group, your A-team, your wedding day front line. Here`s our crash course on creating your perfect wedding party. Choosing who will stand up with you on one of the most important days of your life may seem daunting, but don’t worry—we’re here to walk you through the steps. So take a deep breath, we promise it’s not as tough as it seems. Think twice before you ask. Once you`ve asked someone to be in your wedding party, you can`t go back. So while it may be tempting to ask all of your favorite friends to be in your wedding party the minute you get engaged, don`t. Take your time. Give yourself at least a month, if you can, to mull over the options. Then ask yourself this question: Will I be just as close to this person in five years as I am now? Tip for the taking: If you`re on the fence about asking someone to be in your wedding party, consider how they`d fit in with the rest of your attendants. If you don`t think they`d mesh with your crew, leave them off the list. Set honest expectations. What sort of a role do you want your wedding party to play? Is it important to you that they help to address wedding invites, shop for your day-of attire with you and attend all of the prewedding parties? Or will it be enough for them to wear what you choose and show up on your wedding day? If you want a very involved wedding party, it may not be the best idea to ask friends or family who live far away or have extremely hectic schedules.
The walls are the worst—ugly wallpaper and medieval sconces! Gobo lighting at a wedding reception. The Expert: Brian Worley of yourBASH! in Santa Monica, California. The Style Hack: While you can`t exactly redecorate, you can shift the focus. "I like to transform a space with what I call `moving wallpaper`—we use projectors and add moving images to the walls," Worley says. This trick also doubles as a lighting feature, giving the space a unique look. If a dozen projectors aren`t in your budget, stick to lighting that masks the design. Uplighting and gobos can transform a space instantly—even old wallpaper can disappear amid a soft, colorful glow. The drapes are patterned, and the venue won’t take them down. Draped ceiling wedding reception. The Expert: Annie Lee of Daughter of Design in New York City. The Style Hack: "Buy yards of simple fabric and pin them over the offending drapes," Lee says. It`s a quick fix—no sewing required—and it can really transform the venue. Unlimited budget? Drape the whole space! Coordinate your fabric choices with your table linens, working in a texture or small pattern to keep things fresh and fun.
Act as a host throughout the day. Does Aunt Jane need help with directions to the reception? Does it look like the cake baker and caterer are having a disagreement? Did Uncle Mike ask for a vegetarian dinner and not get one? Does the bride`s grandfather look like he wants to dance but doesn`t have a partner? Did the groom`s father get stuck in an elevator right before his big speech? (Trust us, it happens.) Take it as a cue for you to step in and help where it`s needed, acting on behalf of the couple and their families—especially for things that the newlyweds definitely don`t need to be bothered with or know about. Tie up loose ends at the end of the wedding. Create a list with the couple or their parents ahead of time of any vendors that need to be paid when the night is over, so you can be the point person to hand out checks. Also, keep an eye on the gift table and card box, and delegate help bringing gifts and cards into a secure room or someone`s car after the party`s over. Take care of the bride`s wedding dress after the reception.
