I don't think they will ever go out of style. Of course the first question people ask you about the wedding is ..."What is your key-color?" Sometimes this takes a little more dialogue - All White is understood by women more than the guys? So be prepared. These are a few good tips to pass along on this creative venture.
Some brides go wild with colors!!
TIPS on hosting an all white wedding...
1. Choose your venue carefully for this style wedding. Preview sites with a checklist for carpets, walls and decor that can really cause the clash to all white weddings that.... you do not want. I have yet to see white carpet in an event site....
2. Understand there are 15 or 20 shades of white.....so start with with dress and linens on the tables.
3. We have yet to find a totally white rose, mum or orchid. Most are creamy, beige, pink, champagne, ivory.
4. When you state white wedding, it all begins with the wedding dress and invitations.
5. White weddings work well year round.
6. Chair covers add elegance to your white table linens.
7. Be prepared at hotels or banquet rooms in restaurants to pay more for "specific white table linens".
8. Some whites diminish a bride's beauty. Look at the whites of your eyes and skin tones for your best shade.

I love the glamour shoes on the market…..they make our legs and ankles look amazing!
I see brides and brides to be - wearing some very unique platform shoes and strappy styles, boots and tights, and fun styles to match their attire. I have also had to help brides who fell in them, and helped tuck wedding dresses around the ankle boot worn for broken ankles.
Yes we have all been warned. Some of us are very adept at wearing very high heels. So whether you are great at wearing the 3-7 inch heels, consider these Seven Questions to think about as you select your shoes for your wedding day apparel.
1. Can you wear them again with anything else?
2. Are you on a beach, garden terrace or lawns with uneven steps at your venue?
3. Can you dance in them?
4. Can you score the bottoms of the soles so they do not slip on different surfaces?
5. How many hours can you stand in them without the shoes hurting?
Your Wedding Invitations have a great deal to do with how formal or informal your wedding celebration will be. Various parts of the country are influenced by formality while others are "anything goes".
You are the best decision-maker on the theme, style and statement you want to carry through to your guests from your invitation. There are some tips in this blog, but there is also an extensive article at
http://www.weddinglinks.com/articles/invitations_mailing.asp covering major time line on completing the selection and mailing. The invitation STILL sets the style of your wedding day celebration. There are so many fun ideas and beautiful papers to choose from with embossed, engraved, printed and monogram invites from various companies. I'd Love To Have Your Input On This Subject!
Please, understand. e-mail is a great communicator, facebook, etc, your wedding webpage is a great communicator, but do not place your specific dates, times and places in these areas. There are so many break-ins while couples are at their wedding celebrations. (Hackers can find out when you are gone.) Keep these announcements on your mailed invitations.
Send out once you have the date Early "Save The Date" cards for destination guests and relatives.
Short on budget...Choose a light weight invite so mailing is less expensive. You can find reasonably priced invites at Big Lots or the Dollar Stores and print them yourself. Yes, there is not much we can do about the postal rates, but hand deliver as many as you can to bring costs down.
Average cost to mail, if the weight is normal, for a first class stamp = two per invite, (one for the reply and one for the outer mailing envelope.

shaped diamond. I loved it, but because I type/write so much, I knew it would
be off my hand all too often, and with the chance it might get lost. I
explained my concern, so we went in to see if we could find one that was a
solid piece – both engagement and wedding. It never swings on my hand, and I
always wear it.

for the guests.
7. Collect some fun sun hats at the used clothing
stores and offer them at the entrance to your ceremony or reception.
8. White parasols are lovely for the guests, but
as a guest sitting behind, it is difficult to see past an umbrella.
9. Someone feeling faint, seat them – place head
down to knees, and place ice pack or cold cloth at back of neck.
