Wedding Day Emergency Kit
When it comes to calming wedding day stress it’s always good to follow the Boy Scout mantra of “Be Prepared.” No matter how much time you’ve spent meticulously planning out every detail for your wedding day there’s always those unexpected mishaps that just simply happen…like waking up on your wedding day to a forecast of heavy rain, a migraine headache or even the unthinkable zit. Don’t let anything rob you of the joy that your wedding day has arrived. Be prepared and armed with an arsenal of items and a wedding day emergency kit.
Here, the Bridal Consultants at D’Angelo Couture, describe how to use Pinterest in your bridal appointment to find your dream wedding dress
First of all, Pinterest is amazing
Wedding designers love Pinterest for finding the perfect wedding gown, accessories, shoes, and even panties (ooh la la). Many brides-to-be use Pinterest to plan their big day.
Also, Pinterest can be overwhelming.
Brides come in to D’Angelo Couture Bridal with 3500 Pins they have been collecting since the day they met “The One.”
Help us narrow down our gowns to help you find the dress of your dreams with these 4 tips.
Janet's Top 6 Tips for Attending Bridal Shows
I wanted to share a few tips that I have learned over the years attending the Bridal Shows and Bridal Bazaars. We truly hope that your wedding planning is a wonderful time for you, and hopefully these extra tips will simplify your day at your next Bridal Show!
1) Bring Address Labels with Email Addresses
This is something that a lot of brides don't think about until they arrive at the Bridal Show, and really wish they didn't have to write their contact information over and over again! It requires a little prep beforehand, but makes your time at the show much more enjoyable!
2) Bring sturdy (recyclable) bags
Besides writing your name over and over again, you will be receiving a lot of FREE goodies from the vendors. Yes, some vendors pass out bags, but you will feel more prepared from the start by supplying yourself with your own bag. You will also be happier to have something more durable (it's not very fun to chase around all your loose items, or ever worse, to lose them entirely!).
3) Bring a red (or any color) marker
Having a simple way to distinguish which vendors you really like, will be helpful when you get home and you are trying to remember who you met! It can be an overwhelming process, so don't be shy when it comes to organization and rating the vendors!
4) Camera (or your cell phone)
There will be plenty of opportunities to see displays and examples of cakes, decorations, wedding fashion, and much more. If you feel inspired or see something you like, make sure you take plenty of photos for your personal inspiration board!
5) Organized folder with outlined "needs" list
Create a folder that you can neatly place all of the material you will receive from the vendors. This will be extremely helpful when you are sorting through all of the papers at the end of the day. Go the extra mile and create a list of all of your "needs" for the wedding, that way you can easily find them later on, and you won't forget anything! I highly recommend sorting through your papers at the end of the day and creating "piles" for the vendors your really like. If you find yourself with any vendor information that you won't be using, don't be shy, share their information with your friends! You never know who might be in need of their services! :)
6) HANDY WIPES (or hand sanitizer)
You will be shaking a lot of hands, and tasting a lot of finger food samples, so make sure you have a way to keep your hands clean (and germ free!).
Accent Weddings & Events' photo booths are a huge success at their events. Guests can't wait to put on crazy hats, funny glasses, mustaches and see their pics! It's a "must have" add on at every wedding. The best part is watching how even the Grandparents get in on the fun. Savvy Brides aren't going for the Jordan almonds or candy give-aways like they used to, when they can send everyone home with a photo strip memento to remember the day by.

Many people do not know the difference between suits and tuxedos so we have put together this blog post to explain the details. Suits are typically worn for work or less-formal events such as business meetings and attending weddings. Tuxedos are worn for more formal events such as if you’re in a wedding party, attending a school dance like prom, a charity events, or a black-tie affair.
However, dressing up for your wedding is really about the preference of you and your soon-to-be-wife. Some prefer tuxedos for a more elegant look and some prefer a suit for a more casual beach wedding. Two major considerations for choosing a suit vs. a tuxedo are the wedding gown and the venue. If the bride is wearing a gown, typically a tuxedo is the right choice; if the bride is wearing a more casual dress, then a suit will likely match her better. Just remember, you never want the wedding guests to be more dressed up than the groom!
