Wedding Attire Decisions - Wedding Veils and Hair Style Ideas

Photo by Hughes-Photography.com

The Big Day is coming up and you are still trying to decide on hair, make up and whether you want a wedding veil.  As a wedding planner I've seen a few mishaps with veils, last minute hair dos and these are a few tips worthy of being passed along. 

1.  When at all possible, consider having one or two pre-style hair salon appointments with your beautician.  Even if your stylist will not go onsite to a destination wedding, it will give you the photos and vocabulary to direct the person who will be completing your look for the day.

2. If you are having a veil with your dress, bring the veil to your hair stylist to understand how this will be attached to your hair style.  The pre-day appointment helps you relax and feel prepared. See the video below.  Also find exciting designer house dresses and veils on WeddingLinks.co plus your local bridal shops are linked in each area.

3. If you are having an outdoor or beach wedding, the long veils can get away from your head in a stiff breeze.  Consider a shorter veil  or hair clip style, and/or flowers - securely attached.

4. Some alternatives to veils are the beautiful designer hair clips, flowers placed on combs that the florist creates for you, and delightful hats that match your dress.  Hats too can fly off with a brisk breeze.

5. If  you have decided on a very long chapel veil, consider having some help lifting this as you go down the aisle.  Jr. Bridesmaids can help ease the strain on your head.  Yes, the veil looks light and airy, and barely weighs a pound or two, but it can really tug on your head and neck.  No bride needs a headache on her special day.

6. Flower garlands and floral clips on the head are lovely for those who do not have allergies.
Consider this problem for your groom too. Either take a pill or plan to sneeze your way through.  There are many less-allergic flowers to choose from.

12 TIPS on Selecting An Engagement & Wedding Photographer in New York City to Los Angeles, Sonoma, Napa, San Francisco, Bay Area, East Bay & San Jose

Subject:  Tips on Selecting Your Engagement & Wedding Photographer
We would love your input & ideas on selecting a photographer.

Whether a local wedding or destination wedding, YOUR  PHOTOGRAPHER  provides you with the history and record of your wedding day.... many years later. Those photos trigger your memories of a very happy occasion.   

When selecting a photographer you will want to review several websites for their work. The internet websites gives you an idea of how creative they are in capturing the backdrop, as well as the couple's love for one another.  Here are some tips for your engagement and for your wedding day:
                                                    Photo by Hughes-Photography.com
#1. Select a photographer according to their time in the business and number of photo sessions they have done. Ask for references and call them to find out if they would hire the same photographer again.
#2. In evaluating the photographer's work... Look first for the clarity or unique styling or capturing of the couple. Then the wedding party and children, and then the guests
#3. Look at their various packages.  Some include a free engagement photo when you book them for the wedding.

#4. Often a very popular photographer offers lower prices for Friday and Sunday weddings.
#5. With the exception of a destination wedding, Couples also consider using the same photographer for baby, family, business and boudoir photography. 
#6. You may also want the convenience of reviewing your proofs online. 
#7. Understand, the albums offered by the photographer are often at a lower price than what you would find outside of their services.
#8. Many photographers provide a multitude of "unique photo services" and most can photo shop skin and weight in the photos upon request.
#9. Look for humor, romance, story-telling and intimacy in their work.
#10. You may also want a photographer who does video or a photo booth service combined with photography.
#11. Often couples seek a photographer who will travel with them to a destination. While this may add to your costs, it can be very worthwhile.
#12. We suggest selecting three photographers and then interview each to find your personality fit.

With a destination wedding, you may want to interview online with Skype or come into the area ahead of time to interview and sign a legal contract with your services.
