This question was asked during a conversation my daughter and I had last night....She and her fiance' are getting hitched March of 2013. They really wanted a fall wedding but in order to plan the way they have to plan, this fall wasn't feasible...So they are planning for early Spring of next year.
The way Wedding planning is these days, it seems to me most couples do what they want...They plan by their standards and not necessarily by traditional values! My daughter really LOVES fall colors over spring colors! I said to her.... "Use whatever colors you want....It's your Wedding!!!" Traditional etiquette is out the window...We've been doing Weddings a while now and every Wedding is so different! As much money and time that you spend on planning your Wedding, you should be 100% satisfied with every little aspect of the day! It's your day....And it's your memories that you and your future spouse are creating....These memories are going to be documented in an album that you will have for the rest of your lives together....You want to love these memories 20 years from now as much as you do on that special day....Enjoy this time.....Make it yours....
I've seen black in June....Pinks in September....Lavender in September....One of our couples had the colors of the rainbow as their theme and it was beautiful...Does anyone really look at the colors that you're using at your Wedding? Most weddings I've attended are more focused on the bride and groom....And not so much on the little intricate parts of their wedding...but that's just me!
Please, we would LOVE to see comments on this subject...We need feedback desperately!!!!
Who's going to be your Valentine?
My husband and I have been married for twenty-seven years.... So you can take a wild guess who will be mine....
Where will you take your Valentine? Will it be a little romance brought home?...Maybe a simple rose and a card or even a dozen roses (or favorite flower) and a card? Will you tell your Valentine how important they are to your everyday living or will you show them?
There's tons to do with your Valentine in our beautiful Tennessee state! OMW...Shall I make a list? How about a weekend trip to one of our beautiful state parks for a picnic or a hike...How about going to an area winery for a glass of wine and some great conversation...How about going to Historic Downtown Franklin or Nashville to walk the city and hold hands! That's just a few very romantic suggestions from the top of my head that I love...I'm a huge romantic from the heart! I guess that's why I love the Wedding industry so much! I love watching the romance in a couples eyes when they're together holding hands....And I absolutely LOVE seeing all the engagement rings and the stories behind the proposals...Some are fascinating!!!
Happy Valentine's Day to all!!!
Congrats to my daughter and my future son-in-law...A proposal was my daughter's Valentine's surprise Saturday evening in Centennial Park where they had their first date! So romantic!!!
Yes...Another bridal show is coming up! Come pick and choose your favorite vendors for your upcoming Wedding....We have the best vendors attending in middle Tennessee! Our Pink Bridal Show is Sunday, February 19th from 12:00 - 4:00. We are excited once again to be a part of the Murfreesboro Pink Bridal Show! Looking forward to meeting new brides and grooms!
Bridal Shows are so important when planning your Wedding...And it's not just the fact that it helps to create your budget...The variety of options you have in your choices of vendors is fabulous! The competition is crazy for us as businesses...But it sure keeps us on our toes!
There's going to be lots to see and talk about for new bridal couples and their families. The bridal shows happen for you, the couples...This gives you a place to start preparing and to learn how to plan your Wedding properly. It's a great place to compare and collect prices, taste gourmet dishes, cakes and to look at beautiful photographs and wedding albums.
There will be beautiful venues too...Everything you can think of to plan your Wedding Day!
We have beautiful Storybook Wedding Albums to view and we love to talk Wedding planning with everybody....So come by our Forever Images booth and talk to us about your Wedding!
This is an iconic, ritual, traditional super bowl Sunday...whatever we shall call it at my house! The end of another football season Sunday maybe!!!
We love football...the men in my family moan and groan when the season starts to wrap up! It's so sad...They have nothing to watch now...what shall they do with their televisions!!! It's tradition that the men in the family (now the future son-in-law too) go the annual swap meet at the fairgrounds...I've never been, but I think it's one of the biggest in the state! Again, another man thang I'm thinking, "wouldn't dream of intruding"...But that's okay with me...they have to do those men things! LOL
Cooking BBQ and getting ready for the big game! I wonder sometimes how different other families are...if other families have their little family rituals and traditions, how different they are and what little family rituals are special! All of our family traditions are special in their own little way...I wouldn't change a thing!
Don't really have a preference on the game today...I'll enjoy watching the fam scream back and forth at the each other and the screen! I believe I've heard 3 for the Giants and my loner son is for the Patriots "he says because they're AFC", makes sense to me!
This is how we run our photography business...right here (great article)! We should "Mind Our Manners" folks!!! It's really quite simple...Be honest, be yourself and be the best you can be for your clientele! Being honest is the best attribute any GREAT business should have...But honesty isn't held as one of the great business tools in entrepreneurship that I've noticed! It's all about telling the customer what they want to hear!
In every profession, there's competition...Why settle for a certain photographer when there are tons of us to talk to? We contracted a bride and groom a few nights ago because she had "a so called photographer" hired and her engagement pictures looked as if a five year old had done them...There was no sense of lighting or composition!!!
We have lots of these type of stories and they just frustrate me to no end! This couple lost several hundreds of dollars.... But the end result was that this beautiful, confident bride came to one of our fabulous bridal shows in January just to seek out a great photographer!!! And We can't wait to work with her and her gorgeous fiance'!
Just because someone has a nice camera, doesn't mean they know how to use it folks! It's more than just the camera...It's integrity, lighting, technique, style, product line...Equipment should be last on the list...Any reputable photographer will have great equipment!!!
Interview at least three "professional" photographers before you make your decision...It's worth every minute of effort it takes! I can't stress this enough...Don't ever settle!!!
