15 Questions for Your Wedding Planner

Posted by David Whitehurst on September 22, 2011

 

A Wedding Planner will bring knowledge and relationships to help produce a stunning wedding experience.  But how should you decide on which wedding planner to use?

Between choosing a wedding dress, deciding on appetizers, and securing a venue—planning a wedding can feel like a full-time job!   That's probably why many people choose to make it a job, offering wedding planning services to those who don't have the time or energy to handle it alone.

Choosing a wedding planner is a very important step and will determine how the wedding day goes.  You need to be careful to make sure you choose the right person, just like you need to choose the right wedding gown, so you aren't left in a lurch when the magic moment arrives.

Styling Your Wedding...Wedding Dresses, Hairstyles and More

Posted by Sherry Whitehurst on August 25, 2011

 

Planning a wedding is hard enough for a bride without the added stress of working out the styling details.  So much goes into styling a bride that it can feel overwhelming before you have even begun.  

Here are some ideas about the ways you can "Style" your wedding.

Wedding Dresses

The ultimate in fashion, the wedding gown will make up most of the bride’s style, and what wedding planning site would be complete without a collection of wedding gown resources?  There are several wedding planning web sites that can help you style your wedding, but one I've seen that's especially useful is www.PerfectWeddingGuide.com.

I have written several recent articles on topics related to wedding dresses and here are links to some of those articles:

 

Wedding Hairstyles

A look is not complete until the hair has been styled and completed, and that is especially true at weddings.  PerfectWeddingGuide.com features photo galleries with the latest hairstyles, including the most popular wedding hairstyles.  Make sure you pick a 'do that works with your wedding dress!

Wedding Makeup

This wedding planning site also has a section dedicated to bridal makeup.  It is likely that you will have your makeup professionally done for your wedding day, but you can get ideas for the look you'd like the most for your wedding day from the galleries provided here.

 

Wedding Fashion

PerfectWeddingGuide.com has a section devoted entirely to different types of wedding fashions for guests and party members.  This includes the bridesmaids, whose garments should accentuate the beauty of the bride's wedding gown, and the mother-of-the-bride dress.  Also featured are general wedding wear options.

 

Wedding Rings

The only part of a bride's outfit that could take focus off of the wedding dress is the wedding ring!  PerfectWeddingGuide.com showcases a lot of wedding ring types and styles, in varying price ranges to accommodate different needs.  There are also resources available for resizing, if a whole new ring is not necessary.

In addition to style resources, PerfectWeddingGuide.com has numerous additional features, including registry services, to-do lists, guest lists, vendor resources, venue resources, and more.  Check it out to make wedding planning a breeze!
