Weddings have become a part of any woman’s dreams.  And once their time has come, they would like to be very beautiful and radiant on that day.  Because of this, brides are doing a number of things in order to have a fit body and to look very stunning for their beloved husband to be.

Therefore, if you are a bride who is on the same mission, the following are the things that you can do prior to your wedding day to look your best while walking at the monumental life towards life changes.

Beautiful & Radient Skin

First, you may want to get more in shape prior to your wedding.  This is the best day for you to motivate yourself to exercise because the fear of the wedding gown not fitting your size is always there.  Take at least several minutes a day or every other day just to keep your body burning those calories that you may have eaten the past days.  Also, you may also want to take your diet into consideration by controlling the amount of food that you eat but not to the point of starving.  Starving yourself days before the wedding will make you weak and may make you faint while walking along the aisle.

Next, get yourself pampered.  You can both get nice massage days before the wedding and also get some facial services to clean your face.  If you want, you may also get spa treatments in order to keep you relaxed from your pre-nuptial jitters.  This is a good way to pamper yourself and release you from stress, which can make you look older on your special day.

Next, have a trial hair and make up session.  Just like trying out your dress if it fits perfectly to your body, it is also good to have a make up session to see what colors will blend perfectly on your skin tone.  If you will notice, there are some beautiful women but do not look good on their wedding day because the make up color did not match them well.  For the hair, you have to show what type of veil you will wear.  In this way, they will have an idea on how to style your hair using the veil as the basis.  If you will not wear any veil, you may also describe the design of your gown so the stylist will have an idea on the right style that will fit your hair and the wedding gown.

By doing these things, you will definitely look very beautiful and stunning on your wedding day.  With this, you will feel that you really caught the guests’ attention and the loving eyes of your future husband.

Most of the couples are not really satisfied with pictures alone since they want to get every part of their wedding live.  This is why a lot of them would like to get wedding videographers for their event.  They are the ones to cover their weddings on their videos and save it in a movie format.

The good news today is that you will now see a lot of different wedding videographers online so you can choose the service providers to do the job on your budget.  This will help you compare their services and help you get the ones that you want for your wedding.  But before getting their services, the following are the things that you should expect in getting videographers.

First, you have to know that you may not immediately get your wedding video immediately or days after the wedding.  The videographer will need to edit them first in order to make the video more beautiful so you will maximize it as good memorabilia for your wedding.  It may take you weeks depending on how fast your videographer will work on the venue.

Second, you may be asked by your videographer for several baby pictures especially if he will do a documentary film of your event.  They need to put your pictures to do some flashback when you are still young until you reach your marrying age.  This will make your video more special than the usual.

Next, you also need to expect your videographer’s rate to be different from others.  There are those who will not charge you for additional hours that they spent on your wedding day.  Some videographers will ask you for additional per hour charges if the wedding lasted a little longer than they have expected.  If you will find this type of videographer, you have to be sure of their per hour rate so you will not find yourself hyperventilating with their charges on your day instead of enjoying your way to your honeymoon.

Finally, they may offer you different file format and media disc.  They can save it on DVD, CD, or even Blu-Ray.  You just need to verify the charges to find the right ones for your needs.

These are some of the information to expect about wedding videographers.  As long as you know these, you can properly set expectations and find the right ones that will not totally damage your budget.

Remember that this event is not only to honor to soon to be wed couples but also honor the elders in the family as a way of asking for their complete blessing. By the end of the day, everyone will surely find the time to appreciate your efforts of holding up the get together and make them look forward to your upcoming big day.

Hence, a simple gathering would already do. This would even be ideal if you happen to be running on a tight budget.

Pre-Wedding Parties

Here are some new ideas to hold your pre-wedding celebrations with your beloved family and friends:

  • Pamper parties are already becoming an in-thing for pre-nuptial celebrations. It is not exclusive to happen for bridal showers but also for men who wants to get away from the usual drinking parties that happen with the guys. A lot of spas nowadays offer packages for both men and women to enjoy a day of invigorating relaxation facials and massages in very affordable rates. Such would also prepare everyone to have the time to relax fully before the actual, tedious event happens.
  • The Back In The Day parties are the types which does not limit the pre-wedding parties to be same-sex parties; meaning the bridal shower is just for the girls or the bachelor’s party is just for the guys. This is a simple house party where everyone is gathered up to celebrate the upcoming event with some a simple program complete with all the old songs, old friends and new gifts to give. You would reminisce together by listening to old music you have all once enjoyed in your corresponding eras.
