Get Ready Wedding Tips

Not only are you throwing a rehearsal dinner, wedding, and possibly an after-wedding-breakfast, but  you will also be hosting your getting ready party as well. Making sure you and your bridal party have a lovely time that you all will remember forever.

You can thank the utterly fabulous dress designer Annette from Chaviano Couture for these Get Ready Wedding Tips. Get out your pen and paper, you may to jot these tips down. To see all the images from this lovely shoot click here.

From Annette:

Have detials ready for your photographer before you begin to get ready. While eating breakfast and interacting with your girls. Those are memories you won’t forget. For breakfast serve something a little out of the ordinary. Tomatoes and figs with almonds for protein as well as honey and some fruit are the perfect tasty combination to keep you full before the wedding.

Of course you should have a champagne toast while getting pretty, but remember you have a long day ahead of you. Staying hydrated is essential. Have plenty of water around and light snacks around to keep everyone happy. We love the idea of setting up a water station where you are getting ready. You can dress up the water with fruits and cucumbers to make everything super fancy.

Go untraditional and instead of having your bridesmaids carry bouquets, have them carry clutches with essentials for the big day such as tissue, lipgloss, and a note from the bride. Use family heirlooms such as a broach or piece of jewelwry on your bouquet as well as your mother or grandmothers hankerchief.

Have the wedding gown be unique by choosing a convertible custom gown which allows you to have 2 different looks on your wedding day. Incorporate a piece of your mothers wedding gown onto the dress ( as shown in the ribbons on the hem of this gown)

Allow your bridesmaids to choose outfits in a similar color palette, but still express their individual personalities (such as the CORE bridesmaids gowns shown in this feature)

    OMG thank you so much for showing a bridesmaid pant option! That is my biggest stressor right now. I have one BM that I would never put in a dress and I have not been able to find any options. I will definitely be checking out CORE!

    Love the details and feel of the day, great pics to convey the ambiance. The unique details are key…or maybe kiwi ;)

    So is that sepia in the photos? Or is it another similar effect? It looks a little yellower than sepia. I love it, nice effect.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none
    the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year
    and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great
    things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
