Simple Inexpensive Dresses

Versatile

Although the dresses are cheap and simple, you should note that they are not dull and boring. For example, it’s common to find dresses with elegant designs and styles.

Due to the elegant designs and styles, you can wear the dresses in many other occasions other than the wedding. For example, you can wear them during cocktail parties and diner dates.

Draw attention to the wearer

Fancy wedding dresses have been shown to draw attention from the wearer. For example, if you have a dress with a long tail, people in the wedding will concentrate on your dress and not on you.

You should remember that the wedding day is your big day and people should be talking about you and not about your dress. A simple dress helps you to attain this; when you wear a simple dress, you ensure that people focus on you and not on your dress.

Comfort

Since the dresses are simple, they give you a lot of comfort when wearing them. This is because there are no fancy additions that make you uncomfortable. Unlike when you wear a fancy dress that makes you uncomfortable, wearing a comfortable dress makes you feel at ease and you enjoy your big day.

Need Chair Covers

Chair covers for weddings can help to make your wedding guests feel more comfortable. Some wedding ceremonies can last a long time, and if your guests are made to feel uncomfortable by the chairs which they are sitting on, then their constant fidgeting can cause real disruption at important moments. These coverings are made out of soft material which is comfortable to sit on, and should not irritate the skin. They make it much easier for guests to sit on venue seating.

Chair covers for weddings also allow you to tailor the colors of your wedding venue to the color scheme of your wedding. Chairs at venues are usually a standard neutral color, so that they are inoffensive and do not clash with anything, however they can look dull and bland in the back of wedding photos. In order to make your wedding photos look spectacular, you should consider hiring chair covers to make sure that all of the chairs look the same, and that they are the color that you want them to be!

Chair covers for weddings also help to protect the chairs themselves from damages. Even if your wedding guests are unlikely to cause malicious damage to the property at the venue, accidents can happen, especially when a large number of people are in a small space. If a drink, such as red wine, is accidentally spilt on the upholstery on a chair, it can be difficult to clean it off, and the venue may not be able to use that chair anymore, due to the damage. These covers help to make it easier to clean the chairs after the wedding is over. These covers can be easily removed and washed in a washing machine, whereas it would not be possible to do that with the fabric on most upholstered chairs. If the stain still won’t come out, it is much less expensive to replace a single cover than it is to replace a whole chair.

About Cheap Wedding Invitations

This is a very cheap method for sending out wedding cards, but it’s equally effective and it’s good for the environment because it does not waste any paper. Some options for creating a wedding invites website include:

Buy a domain name and design the website or have a relative or friend that has a good IT-knowledge do this. Make sure people need to log in before they can actually see the webpage because otherwise the whole World Wide Web knows the wedding date and venue.
Couples can also start a closed group on Facebook and invite people they want to come to the wedding to join. Only members of this group can view their pages. Nice about a Facebook page is that it allows people to post comments, photographs and videos.

If the couple doesn’t mind strangers knowing about their wedding, they can also opt for creating a free wedding page via sites like Blogger.

Those who are looking for beautiful and affordable wedding invites, can print them themselves instead of having a company do this for them. This will save couples a lot of money. Buy nice cheap paper for the invitations and then design the invitation using beautiful fonts and images. Couples can also choose to include a black and white picture of themselves. No one will know that these invites were inexpensive wedding invitations!

Print the invitations at home and put them in blank envelopes. Want to save on ink or address labels? Write the addresses instead of printing them! Just make sure that the handwriting is readable and visually attractive.

Whether couples make and print their own wedding cards or they have a company print them, they can still save money. Below are some tips for affordable wedding card invitations.

Don’t include an RSVP card with an envelope, but include a telephone number and/or email address instead. In this day and age, where almost everyone has access to the internet and mobile phones, it’s perfectly acceptable to drop this card.

Another money saver is: keep it simple. Wedding cards that are multi-layered, contain colour pictures or are printed on very thick paper can cost a lot of money. Not only is it more expensive to print these, but they will need more stamps than standardized versions. After all, the more the wedding invites weigh, the more they will cost.

There is really no need for a save-the-date card. Consider skipping the card, especially when a lot of your invitees live in your hometown and when the wedding does not take place during a peak holiday time like Christmas or Thanksgiving.

Men’s Wedding Bands

Men’s wedding bands are usually made out of a simple material, without any kinds of additional gems, jewels or materials inserted into it. Gold, platinum or titanium are obvious choices, both because of their exquisiteness and their great-looking designs. Aside from that, these kinds of materials last for a long time and are not prone to environmental damage and are seldom subjected to wear and tear. But the main thing about them is that they can be simple and still look stylish.

While simple is the word on most men’s thoughts when it comes to bands, recent years have brought an increase in designer bands for men. These can include diamonds, gems or other precious metals can be included to give a certain design to the wedding band. For example, men who are really passionate about card games can have some sort of cards imprinted on them, while football enthusiasts can have helmets imprinted. Again, all of this is left to the groom who can choose his style of men’s bands that best suits his wishes.

As far as the simple design goes, there’s no clear-cut formula for one-size-fits-all wedding bands. Measurements have to be taken on the spot, but there are a few things you can take into account when choosing the right wedding band. For example, the width and thickness of the band: for a comfortable ring, go for a 4 millimeter wide and 2 millimeter thick wedding band. These are popular choices around the world, mostly because of their good design, great feel and awesome look. These dimensions can also be taken into consideration when choosing men’s designer wedding bands. As with wedding decorations, the venue for the reception, wedding video services and choice of food, wedding bands are choices that belong solely to the bride and groom, together as a couple.

Photography Styles

  1. TRADITIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY: This style is very formal. The bride, groom, and wedding party/guest are highly ‘posed’. For this type of look, the bride and groom must be prepared for a lot of intervention on the photographer’s part. Most likely the bride and groom will not be models; therefore they won’t know how to pose like that naturally. Remember that photographers are on a time limit. They have to get their shots in the time you allotted so you can continue on with your wedding day. In some cases, the photographer could be confused with a film director – constantly giving directions to organize and pose individuals or entire groups to obtain the desired traditional look. The younger generation sometimes considers the finished photography out of date or style. The more mature generation will be very pleased with the finished product. Modern brides may also feel that this style is very stuffy and stiff. As a result, they don’t clearly depict the air of happiness and fun that is part of many weddings nowadays.
  2. CONTEMPORARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY: This style is much less formal. It is meant to be informal and relaxed leaving room for spontaneity. The photographer will capture the spirit of fun and a some formal moments. There will minimal posing so less intervention on the photographer’s part. This style will be completely unique to “you”. There will never be two weddings just the same. Because of the individually this style continues to gain in popularity. The photographer will search for great backdrops (inside and outside) with the goal of producing very stylize photos that would resemble something like you would see in a magazine.
  3. DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY: This style is very ‘hands-off’. The photographer assumes the ‘fly on the wall’ position capturing events as they actually unfold, detail by detail. The photographer’s goal is to be unnoticed and hide in the background so that you unaware that you are being photographed. There would be very little posing or organizing to achieve most of the desired wedding photos. Because of this, this style is gaining in popularity. The newlyweds are free to enjoy their day and not be bothered by photos. The result? Candid, unusual shots that you wouldn’t expect to see in the traditional or contemporary styles. There is a huge ‘WOW’ factor associated because you haven’t figured out what each photo is going to look like because of the posing. EX: a sweet kiss between bride and groom could be photographed and they not even know. The only down side is that you really don’t know what you are going to get. But if you like surprises, this could be a plus!
  4. ARTISTIC/PHOTOJOURNALISTIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY: This style allows the photographer to be the ‘artist’. Each set of wedding photos will be unique and trendy or cutting edge. Intervention by the photographer can vary based on the desired end result. Within this style a photographer looks to capture the things that a bride or groom may miss or never see because they are the center of attention. This is designed to tell a story – the story of your wedding day. It encompasses the essence and feeling of each smile or tear. EX: Dad sees his little girl all dressed up before she walks down the isle to marry her future hubby. Dad may lift her veil and kiss her on the forehead and whisper a few short words in her ear. This moment could be captured and preserved as a cherished memory. EX: All of the bridesmaids and the bride are gathered in the room dressing. Each is putting on the finishing touches and admiring how beautiful the bride is. Tasteful photos would be gathered as they dress, fix their hair, and apply makeup. Again, these are moments that most will never see but they are part of the preserved memories. Each set of photos will be individualized, very stylish, and unique to each bride. Some brides may consider this ‘risky’. The way to overcome this is to check out the portfolio for each photographer.

These companies may also not have any form of insurance to cover you in the event of a collision occurring.

The guests will be asked to fill the blanks on the gifts that they think will be received by the bride. When the gifts are opened, the brides will mark off the correct items, when somebody gets five items in a row, she will receive a prize.

Another game is the clothespin game. Upon arrival, the guest will receive a clothespin, which should be attached on the clothes.

If a guest is caught breaking the rule, the one, which catches her will get the pin and attach to her clothes. The guest with the most clothespins generally wins the prize.
