Wedding photography is not just the act of clicking a series of pictures however it is an art to capture those magic moments in a lively way. Wedding photography should be done in a way so that no matter how many years have passed, the moment you start looking at the pictures the entire wedding gets visualized in front of you the way it was rather in a better way. Wedding photography captures the feelings and sentiments related with the marriage.

As wedding is a one-time event hence the photography should be perfect and to the point and the photographer must be prepared to capture the actual moments and those positive exceptional happenings. So that later in your life when you sit and look at the pictures can cherish those moments again adding essence to your life. As a wedding includes different kinds of feelings such as happiness, excitement, fun, enjoyment and a little bit of positive sorrow, especially in case of girls as they get parted from their maternal family. And the photographer must get succeeded in capturing all these feelings and magic in his camera.

A photographer needs to aware of the cultural aspects of wedding photography in a particular culture. They need to understand the symbolism of specific religious rituals. They need to know that when the symbolically significant moments will occur. For example you can’t afford to miss some crucial moments like the wedding kiss.

As we grow older we want our family to see how our wedding was like and it is really interesting and pleasurable to show our grand children as to how we celebrated our big day. And then the art of photography comes into real picture. Wedding is a one time experience however photography makes it a lifetime experience. You enjoy this experience again and again depending on the quality of photography done. You really regret if the photographer missed out some real great magical moments .However on the other hand you really enjoy and start visualizing the wedding once again if the photographer has captured all the feelings and happenings in the wedding. You feel as its happening in front of you if the photography is as lively as the wedding was.

Hence ,the photographer should be prioritized while planning a wedding. We just not want good pictures however we want more lively and excellent pictures. Moreover, wedding photographer should be informed about what exactly you want for your wedding. The idea is that the photography must be done at the right time with the right people. Being a bride or a groom one does not have the time at the wedding to look after how the photography is going on hence a photographer’s role should be played in the right manner and the right order.

Paper Wedding Flowers you can do

Paper Wedding Flowers


Floral arrangements definitely add to the beauty of any wedding, but they can also eat up a large portion of your wedding budget. What if you could get the same visual impact for a fraction of the cost, or even free? Well, here is a great way to do just that: DIY paper wedding flowers. With a little practice, and some patience, you can create everything from bridal bouquets to Boutonnières with paper.

Paper flowers mimic what is found in nature,  but they are far more durable—they won’t wilt or droop. Another benefit of paper flowers is that they are always in season. Have a favorite flower? Chances are you can find an online tutorial for ways to make it with paper. You can create pretty much anything you can dream up, and you’re not limited by which flowers happen to be in season for your wedding. Because these are made of paper, you can create them in any color to match your wedding color scheme. You can even get effects that would be impossible with real flowers, such as using different paper textures, making the flowers larger-than-life for a really stunning visual, or incorporating printed patterns that match your wedding decor. Get creative and have fun with it!

These paper flowers will take some time and effort to create, but it’s not as hard as you may think. The process will go a lot faster with some help, so get your bridesmaids together for a flower making party. Each bridesmaid could make her own bouquet. Pages from books, maps, and even old newspaper can be turned into little works of art. Not only are paper flowers eco-friendly, but they will last forever as a wonderful keepsake from your wedding day!


Saying? I Do’ and Enjoying It Too!

For many brides, the quest to plan the perfect day can quickly turn into a nightmare trip down the aisle. Here are a few tips to keep your wedding day bliss from turning into the honeymoon blues.

* Marriage Planning 101: Once the ring goes on, the race to plan the perfect wedding begins, giving couples little time to think about the marriage itself or how their wedding spending decisions could affect their future. But smart couples are now setting aside time to address pre-wedding issues such as what they will do when it comes to financial planning, spending money, raising children and family politics.

With nearly half of all newlyweds taking on debt to finance their “big day,” couples should take every opportunity to make their wedding-related and everyday spending count toward their future.

One unique new rewards program,, offers couples $10,000, $100,000 and even $1 million in cash rewards to stay married and shop with uTANGO’s 250-plus merchants such as Expedia,, and BlueNile.

In addition to helping couples save for their future, offers free advice from wedding, financial and relationship experts. By taking a proactive approach, couples can leverage their wedding spending to ease financial worries and start building toward their future.

While destination weddings, especially to international locales, continue to be one of the hottest wedding trends in recent years, they can also present challenges such as increased costs, security concerns, language barriers and unreliable vendors.

A less expensive alternative is to pick a centrally located U.S. city like Chicago, known for fantastic wedding and party venues, choice accommodations and activities to suit any taste and budget. It may not be as exotic as Tahiti, but couples often find that more family and friends can attend and planning challenges are drastically reduced when the nuptials stay stateside.

Managing wedding expectations: For many brides, planning the perfect wedding is a major life event decades in the making. With this in mind, it’s easy to see how wedding expectations can get out of hand in a hurry.

With wedding euphoria taking over, busy brides and grooms can quickly lose sight of spending, causing the perfect wedding to turn into fights over money. By managing expectations of what a “dream” wedding should be, it is still possible to have a lovely and elegant wedding without breaking the bank.

* Bridezilla-free zone: The term “Bridezilla” has been used to describe a difficult, unpleasant, perfectionist bride whose obsession with planning the perfect wedding day leaves frustrated family, friends, bridal vendors and even her groom distraught in her wake.

Belligerent Bridezillas beware: Horror stories of fist fights, hair pulling, kicking and screaming from out of control brides-to-be have put wedding planners, vendors and bridesmaids on the offensive. Some wedding vendors now go as far as to include language in their contracts reserving the right to cancel if the bride’s behavior is determined to be “out of control or abusive.” So, whether you hit the gym or hit the spa, have a plan in place to handle wedding-related stress and keep Bridezilla at bay.

* Just say “no”: Brides place such demands on their bridesmaids these days that it is not uncommon for them to decline, even when it’s one of their best friends. Not only is the financial responsibility of being a bridesmaid staggering, but the time commitment demanded by some brides is also daunting.

The massive to-do lists handed out by brides, coupled with the obligatory appearances for shopping, parties and showers, can leave bridesmaids feeling underappreciated, overworked and broke after the wedding is over.

Brides should be upfront about both time and financial expectations with their friends when asking them to join their wedding party and understand if the answer is no.
