The Real Reason You Have to Buy Your Wedding Dress So Far in Advance

You’re newly engaged, and you’re excited… to go wedding-dress shopping! And while your wedding date (if you’ve even set one yet) may seem like it’s ages away, it’s actually a good idea to head to the bridal salon sooner rather than later. The reason? A made-to-order wedding dress from a bridal salon takes about six to nine months to make! Sometimes it may take a little longer. So gather your hand selected family or friends that will to help you say YES to your dress! Aside from the fact that it may take you some time to find the One, you’ll need to perfectly time your three MAYBE four fittings, allowing for custom alterations and then some more custom alterations. To help explain why it takes so many months to perfect your dress, here’s a breakdown of the timeline—from purchasing your dream wedding dress to walking it down the aisle.

9-12+ months before the wedding: Once you say YES to your dream wedding dress, the bridal consultant will measure you and possible measure hollow to hem if the dress requires it.  Your wedding dress is crafted in many different areas of the world. The gowns are made to order.

3+ months before: The gown should be finished and at the salon. when you come in to try on your gown for the first time If you have not selected the headpiece, veil, and accessories this is a good time to do that. Just in case your gown is not in yet, you have wiggle room before the first fitting! If the salon had to place a rush delivery because the wedding date was much closer, then you may be starting your alterations weeks before the wedding. No worries because no matter what your wedding gown will be ready in plenty of time for your special day!

6 to 8 weeks before: If you start alterations at this point, Keep your weight stable from here on out.

On your 2nd or 3rd fitting: There may be minor tweaks (change neckline, trim train, Etc.).

1-2 weeks before: last fitting. The gown should be almost flawless. Try on your entire wedding look.

2 days before: Pick up your finished gown.

The Big Day: Show time!

destination Weddings: 7 Tips for Smooth Sailing

No longer an option only for the rich and famous, destination weddings have increased in popularity with couples seeking exotic locales and wanting to eliminate the hassles of wedding planning. Here, we share seven important tips for booking your wedding away.

Tip #1: Consider the time of year
Resorts and all-inclusive properties offer great deals for brides and grooms looking to wed in paradise. However, if you’re planning to exchange vows during peak seasons (holidays, summer months), expect to pay premium prices. Also, August—October is mid-hurricane season in the Caribbean. If you’re planning an island wedding around that time, be sure to inquire upon a cancellation policy for your trip.

Tip #2: Book a destination wedding at a location/with a provider that meets your standard
If you’re feeling unsure about a particular location or not impressed with the level of service, keep checking around until you find a destination and/or accommodations that are in line with your wants and wishes. If you have found the perfect place, but the packages are a bit on the pricey side, try calling the venue and letting them know that you’re interested in booking a destination wedding and are curious as to what’s available in your price range. Believe it or not, most vendors are willing work with you and your budget. Besides, it never hurts to ask.

Tip #3: Research the requirements for obtaining a marriage certificate in that area
Not all states, provinces and countries follow the same rules in regard to weddings. Even if you are working with a wedding planner provided by your resort or through a destination wedding service, take time to brush up on the laws and requirements for acquiring a marriage certificate where your ceremony will take place. Understanding how, when and where to pick up the marriage certificate will definitely save you lots of time and stress.

Tip #4: Give friends and family ample time to make preparations
If you’re inviting others to share with you on your big day, give your guests plenty of advance notice by sending out save-the-date cards. With the ever-increasing price of airfare, your guests will appreciate having a jump start on travel plans.

Tip #5: Choose a wedding photographer who’s familiar with the venue
You don’t want to entrust your wedding photos to just anyone. Find a destination weddings photographer who knows the area inside and out, or arrange for him/her to visit the venue before the big day. A good photographer will want to know the venue inside and out before your wedding to give you unique shots that reflect the style, lighting, and mood of the location.

Tip #6: Never select an all-inclusive package if it doesn’t fit your needs
An “all-inclusive” or “most-inclusive” approach to making the wedding arrangements can help to ease some of the stress, energy and time it can take to plan a destination weddings. However, if your guest list is small (or if it’s just the two of you), more isn’t always the best bet. Always select amenities and services according to your individual needs.

Tip #7: Plan activities to keep guests entertained
While you and your groom are busy tackling last minute details and meeting with vendors, keep your guests entertained by creating a list of activities and local attractions to enjoy. Since some of your guests may use vacation days to attend your ceremony, help them make the most of their trip by offering fun and leisurely things to do during destination weddings downtime.

Weddings away are just the ticket for couples who want to enjoy more of each other and worry less about the hassles associated with traditional planning. So, kick back and relax in knowing that all the details are taken care of.

Off-Day Weddings Offer Advantages

Traditionally, Saturday is the most popular day for weddings. But competition for sites and services is making so-called “off-day weddings” more attractive. Even if you don’t marry in September or October, traditionally the two most popular months, a Saturday wedding can be hard to arrange. Many wedding ceremony and reception sites are booked a year or more ahead of time.

To make matters worse, it’s even harder if there’s one particular site you’ve set your heart on with your wedding planning. If there’s a conflict, your only options are to postpone or switch dates. For many couples, an off-day wedding— perhaps a Friday or Sunday wedding ceremony—is more appealing than delaying the ceremony. This is especially true for if you don’t have a lot of time for wedding planning and preparation, or if a sudden job move or other unexpected event makes you advance your plans.

The anniversary factor can also have you setting up an off-day wedding. When a particular date (like the one-year anniversary of his proposal) is more important than a Saturday time frame, you should not let tradition stand in the way of significance.
