Finding your perfect wedding dress can be nearly as difficult as finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. From ball gowns to bias-cut numbers the options are endless. To help you narrow down the search, we rounded up 10 signs that you may have finally found the one.   1. You start using superlatives.If you're suddenly inspired to describe your gown as "the most beautiful dress in the world", "the most stunning gown I've ever laid eyes on," or simply "the best dress," you've found your (other) soul mate.   2. You can suddenly picture walking down the aisle towards your future hubby.Picturing your groom's awestruck reaction to your red carpet-worthy gown as you glide down the aisle? The hunt is over.   3. You begin to wonder where else you could possibly wear the gown.Sporting your gown on a trip to the supermarket is totally normal, right?   4. All other clothing suddenly pales in comparison to it.Even that uber-flattering vintage Chanel shift you found on sale is looking drab compared to the stunner you're rocking on now.   5. Someone in your group is tearing up, even if it's not you.You may not be the type for overt displays of emotion, but chances are if your mother, sister, or best friend is sniffling, you've found your ideal match.   6. You're convinced your body has never looked better.Whether it is a cinched mermaid dress that emphasizes your curves or a slim silk sheath that complements your athletic frame, Gisele has nothing on you when you're clad in this stunner.   7. Your gown may not be pink, but your face has taken on a rosy glow.Remember your first date with your guy, and how you blushed furiously when compliments were involved? If your dress evokes the same blushing reaction, it may be your sartorial match made in heaven.   8. No one else's opinion matters.Your perfect dress may turn you into a bit of a bridezilla, because if you adore it, your entourage better love it too.   9. The prospect of not wearing the dress on your big day is too much to bear.Sure, the groom is important, but if you can't wear this gown? The wedding is officially off.   10. You feel like you're falling in love all over again.If you're experiencing a coup de coeur like the one you felt when first falling for your groom, it's time to say yes to your dress.   Source: http://www.brides.com/blogs/aisle-say/2014/09/signs-you-found-perfect-wedding-dress.html?mbid=social_facebook

10 Surprising Facts About Wedding Tra...

  The bouquet; the garter toss; that something blue pinned to your dress: Have you ever taken a second to consider the purpose of all of these deeply instilled wedding traditions? Probably not because you're busy planning a wedding. But since we're wedding fanatics that fall asleep dreaming of napkin rings and invite fonts, we took the liberty to dig around and find 10 fascinating facts about the wedding traditions we've all come to know.   1. Turnsout it's your "ring finger" for a reason. Engagement and wedding rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because it was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart.   2. Queen Victoria is credited with starting the Western world's white wedding dress trend in 1840 — before then, brides simply wore their best dress.   3. If your bridesmaids are less than thrilled about matching dresses, tell them they're good luck! The tradition of matching maids dates back to Roman times, when people believed evil spirits would attend the wedding in attempt to curse the bride and groom (how rude). Bridesmaids were required to dress exactly like the bride in order to confuse the spirits and bring luck to the marriage.   4. On a similar note, brides traditionally wear veils because ancient Greeks and Romans believed they protected her from evil spirits.   5. The tradition of a bride wearing "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue," comes from an Old English rhyme. Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity.   6. The tradition of a wedding cake comes from ancient Rome, where guests broke a loaf of bread over the bride's head for fertility's sake.   7. Ever wondered where the phrase "tying the knot" came from? In many cultures around the world — including Celtic, Hindu and Egyptian weddings — the hands of the bride and groom are literally tied together to demonstrate the couple's commitment to each other and their new bond.   8. If you thought we were over the spirit thing, think again. According to tradition, the groom carries the bride across the threshold to valiantly protect her from evil spirits lurking below.   9. June weddings are not a new thing. The Roman goddess Juno rules over marriage and childbirth, hence the popularity of June weddings.   10. Honeymoons weren't always so luxurious. Ancient Norse bridal couples went into hiding after the wedding, and a family member would bring them a cup of honey wine for 30 days — or one moon — which is how the term "honeymoon" originated.     Source: http://www.brides.com/blogs/aisle-say/2014/07/surprising-facts-wedding-traditions.html?mbid=social_facebook

10 Things You Can't Forget to Do the Morning of Your Wedding

Photo: Laura Murray Photography   There's more to the morning of your wedding than makeup applications and Mimosas. (And you thought the hard part was over!) Luckily, these wedding planners have you covered with a list of last-minute to-dos that will make the entire day more enjoyable.   1. Trade heels for flats."You'll most likely be wearing heels all day, so savor the moments your feet can relax," says Ashley Espinal, owner of Dulce Dreams Events in New York City. "Flats and a beautiful bridal robe will make you feel like a million bucks."   2. Give your cell phone one last charge."Not only will you be receiving phone calls and texts from family and friends," says Espinal, "but most of your important day-of information will be stored there — maybe even your vows!"   3. Don't skip breakfast — or lunch. "Start the day off on the right foot with a healthy, if light, breakfast," says Janice Carnevale, owner ofBellwether Events in Washington, D.C. "And make a plan in advance for someone to either pick up or deliver lunch, as this will likely occur during your getting ready time."   4. Make time for your parents. "This is a big day for them, too," Carnevale says. "Some brides are now doing a 'first look' with their dads, so consider that idea."   5. Designate a 'maid for cleanup duty. "Assign someone to tidy up the getting ready room before the photographer arrives," Carnevale says. "Get those unsightly lunch leftovers and dry cleaner bags out of the background of your photos."   6. Pop in a playlist. "Nothing sets a tone like music," says Courtney Wolf, wedding director at Invision Events in Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama. "And listening to your favorite Katy Perry ballad while getting ready is just plain fun!"   7. Pen a love letter to your fiancé."Write a candid, in-the-moment note about marrying him on this day," Wolf says. "It will be fun to sit down on future anniversaries and feel those giddy emotions all over again."   8. Pack a makeup bag."Have your makeup artist bring extras of the colors they use for you to touch up later," Wolf says. "Make sure they'll fit in your clutch."   9. Clean your ring."Never is your ring going to get more up-close and personal," says Victoria Canada, owner of Victoria Canada Weddings & Events in Scottsdale, Arizona. "So make sure it is shining like the star it is!"   10. Drink water — lots of water."Start early," Canada says. "No, you are not going to bloat. But it is better to drink it early rather than later. Going to the ladies' room in a wedding dress is a skill that is worthy of the Olympics."  

The Dos and Don'ts of Wedding Photogr...

Photo: Chung Li Photography Trends come and go, especially with weddings. So how can you tell which are worth trying when it comes to your big day pics? We chatted with some event photographers and videographers for their take on what fads are worth a shot.   Do ask your photographer about film.Both newbie photogs and more seasoned ones are starting to bring film cameras back to weddings, according to Karen Wise of Karen Wise Photography. The result is a very "rich and classic look" that's slightly different than digital. "You capture the detail and nuances a bit better," Wise says, adding that a happy accident like double exposure can occur, when two scenes appear over each other. You can ask your photographer to get creative and superimpose a bride and groom image onto a landscape, or flowers imprinted over your gown, for instance. "Multiple exposure takes a bit of time and focus to set up and execute," Wise warns, "but it's very doable."   Don't do canned engagement photos.Rather than taking very planned and posed engagement shots, Tony Hoffer, lead photographer at Hoffer Photography, is seeing more couples interested in "doing things that feel a little more real to them." So instead of the bride holding a sign that says "He chose me!" and the groom nearby with a smile plastered on his face, engaged couples are doing things that they normally enjoy and simply inviting a photographer along for the ride. Such real-life scenarios include taking a boat for a sail, hanging out at the beach with their dog, going for a drive in their Jeep, and just enjoying life together without trying to look so purposefully "in love."   Do allow selfie sticks.Sure, selfie sticks can be obnoxious in some instances but they usually get a pass at weddings. Hoffer says that he sees one come out during at least half of the weddings he shoots. "People goof around with it. And we take fun pictures of people shooting themselves with the selfie stick," he says.   Don't resist a hashtagWhether or not you're a fan of social media, you have to admit it makes a lot of sense to suggest a wedding hashtag so all your big day pics are easy to find. Friends and family will want to share the photos and it's simple enough to give them a fun phrase to tag so you can spot snaps in the digital deluge. "Having a hashtag is a great way for couples to see moments from the wedding that they might have missed and it makes their guests feel involved," says Kristy Ryan of Blush Wedding Photography.   Do consider drones.Aerial cinematography is another new trend at weddings that's been growing for the past two years, says Sigmund Reboquio, creative director and owner of REB6studios. He uses a quadcopter — a type of drone — along with a GoPro camera to capture some stunning footage. Hoffer agrees that drones are one of the biggest fads right now. Usually, the film crew takes an outside shot of a ven ...
