Planning Your Valentine’s Day Proposal

Source: pinterest.com/zankyounl

Valentine’s Day is known to be the most romantic day of the year. It’s also a day you’re sure to be spending with your sweetie. So it makes sense that many couples get engaged on this heart-filled holiday.

Looking for some ideas on how to make your day (and proposal) special? Try one of these memorable Valentine’s Day Proposal ideas:

  • Restaurants are the second most popular proposal spots (at home being the first), and just so happens to be where I was proposed to. But don’t delay in making your reservations, as restaurants are typically booked early for the holiday. And don’t forget to enlist the staff in your proposal plans to make the night even more special. This probably isn’t the first proposal they’ve assisted in, so be sure to get their feedback on special ways to pop the question.
  • Decide if you (and your significant other) would want a private or a public proposal. Sports fans? Perhaps a message on the jumbo-tron would work for you. Want to involve family? Perhaps renting a facility for a surprise proposal in front of close family and friends would work for you. Looking for something more private? A nice romantic dinner at home could be the perfect date.
  • Keep it simple. Sometimes the grandest of gestures, like a marriage proposal, is best done in the simplest of ways. Buy your sweetie a book of candy and replace one piece with the ring. She might disappointed at the inexpensive gift, so you’ll need to convince her to taste one so she opens the box. Then the surprise is on her!
  • Consider recreating a special moment in your relationship. Either a first date, the first time you met, or the first time you said “I Love You”. Reenact the date as closely as you can and tell her how special it was. Then end the night with your special proposal.
  • Say it with photos. I’m a big scrapbooking person and love having printed pictures for memories. Create a special photo album for your sweetie commemorating your favorite moments together, and leave the last two pages blank. The first can say “Looking forward to many more memories together” and the second could follow with “will you marry me?” (Don’t have copies of any pictures? Check out your sweeties favorite social network, like Facebook, for copies.)
  • Say it with flowers. Roses. Everywhere. You get the picture.
  • Hide the ring somewhere your significant other will “accidentally” find it – in his sock drawer, where she keeps her keys, on your pet’s collar. Be creative!

No matter what you decide, be sure to stay true to who you are as an individual and a couple. Good luck! Let us know how your proposal goes!

Your Bridal Preparations: Don’t Forget the Video

 

It’s your wedding day. The most important day of your life. And you’ve probably planned the whole agenda for the day down to the songs that will be played during the ceremony to the exact moment your husband dips you during your first dance. And your wedding videographer will capture every special moment as it happens.

But what about the moments before you descend down the aisle?

My wedding day was a blur. It went by so fast that I barely remember saying “I Do”. But I can remember everything that happened leading up to that moment. Some of the most emotional, intimate and even funny moments of my wedding day occurred in the few hours before the ceremony.

The overwhelming emotion from reading the card and opening a gift from my groom. Getting my hair and nails done. Laughing and joking with best girlfriends to help ease wedding day jitters. Adjusting my makeup and getting into my wedding dress. Receiving a special wedding gift from my father. Seeing the flowers delivered by the florist. Smoothing my dress into place. Leaving for the ceremony.

All those moments I can remember vividly, despite the heightened anxiety and nervousness for the rest of the day.

These are also moments that would be lost forever had my wedding videographer not been there to capture them. Looking back at that video footage, I not only remember everything, but I can see how beautiful and surreal of a morning it was. And my husband can get a glimpse into the morning’s bridal preparations, something he would have never seen if not for our videographer.

 

Trust me, once you head out for the ceremony and work your way through your wedding day agenda, the day will become a whirlwind. Don’t let those precious memories of your day slip away by not having your videographer there.

5 Tips for Including Your Pet in Your Wedding

Wedding Pets Nathan Suher

 

You know what they say; a dog is a man’s best friend. And typically a best friend is always included in a wedding.

So it’s no surprise to me that many couples are including their pets on the big day. And really, could there be anything cuter than a dog dressed in a tux?

Some couples have their pets walk down the aisle. Giving them more responsibility, some couples choose to have their pets carry their wedding bands on a collar or something similar. Others use pictures of pets on table number cards.

Me? I’m a cat lover. I have had cats my whole life growing up. They have always been an extension of my family. My wedding would not have been complete without having my cat involved somehow. And while my faithful feline didn’t walk me down the aisle, she was there to pose for a shot in my wedding video.

But before you include Fido in your big affair, here are a few things to consider:

1. First and foremost, be sure to confirm that your pet will be allowed at your ceremony facility – be it the church, reception hall, etc. (Pets not allowed? Consider taking your wedding pictures at a pet-friendly location so you can include them in your wedding pictures.)

2. Will you give your pet a specific responsibility (i.e. carrying the rings) or will they just be present? Before assigning them a job to do, be sure to consider whether your pet can handle being around a crowd. And be prepared for your pet not behaving as planned.

3. Keep your pet safe. Make sure any costumes or accessories they were are loose and don’t impose a choking hazard. Make sure you also consult your florist to avoid any toxic flowers. And finally, consider having a “pet sitter” at the wedding to make sure Fido doesn’t get into the chocolate cake!

4. Keep your guests safe. Be sure to inform all your guests, before they RSVP, that a pet will be in attendance. Some people may have a fear of certain animals (like me for very large dogs) or may be allergic to certain breeds of animals.

5. Be sure to tell the professionals. Always make sure to tell your wedding photographer and wedding videographer of your plans to include a pet. You’ll want to make sure they are ready for any impromptu moments and they may be able to give you great ideas on how to better incorporate them into your special day.

Looking for ideas on how to include your pet in your wedding day? Check out our Wedding Pets Pinterest Board!

Planning a Wedding – Start with a Wedding Checklist

Nathan Suher Wedding Checklist App Photo Credit: iTunes

 

When I got engaged, my maid of honor bought me a wedding planner, which included a month by month wedding checklist. I carried that book with me everywhere I went, making notes and lists and making sure I stayed on track with our wedding planning details.

For most of us today, carrying around a bulky wedding planner book and wedding checklist is unheard of. In the digital age that we live in, most of us depend on our smartphone, Blackberry, Android, or iPhone to keep us organized and on task.

So where does wedding planning meet digital organization?

Here are our top choices for wedding planning tools and wedding checklists for the digital bride-to-be:

1. WeddingWire.com (online) – Just enter your wedding date and Wedding Wire will deliver a checklist sorted by month or category. As you complete the items on your list, simply check the box next to the item and it is automatically removed from your list!

2. Wedding Planning Complete (app) – This fun app has a wedding countdown, budget tracker, guest list tool and wedding planning checklist to name a few.

3. Pinterest (app and online) – Pinterest is the ultimate wedding planning tool. This rising social network allows users to create digital, visual scrapbooks or their wedding ideas. Want a preview? Check out our Pinterest board at: http://pinterest.com/nathansuher/. You can even create private boards for the ideas you’re not quite ready to share with the world!

4. Wedding Budget (app) – Looking for a more comprehensive wedding checklist designed with your budget in mind? Check out this free app that allows you to monitor your expenses and your budget with great visual displays.

5. The Knot Ultimate Wedding Planner (app) – Almost every bride I know registers a free account on The Knot. Now you can take all your tools and checklists from online and integrate them into the app on your phone.

6. SeatingPlanner+ (app) – If you’re a visual person like me, you’ll love this app. It helps you organize your guests list by keeping track of meal choices and visually allowing you to organize your guests by table. You can even adjust the table shape and export the final seating chart as a pdf file to deliver to your venue. Cost: $4.99.

Choosing Your First Dance Wedding Song

You agonize over it for months before your big day.

It has to be something special. Something that defines you as a couple. Something that all your guests will watch, with tears in their eyes, and admire the true love reflected in what they see. Or perhaps you want it to be something unique that reflects the fun-loving nature you have as a couple. Either way, it has to be good.

The first dance…

It’s the one tradition from your wedding that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. Your first dance wedding song becomes “your song” as a couple. And long after you’re married, you’ll always remember the first dance wedding song you danced to your first time as a married couple.

Because of the longevity of the first dance wedding song, most couples typically choose classic tunes or the popular romantic song for that year. Other couples try to choose a song with lyrics that are meaningful to them, that accurately represent their life, or let’s face it, that are easy to dance to!

For me, it was Kelly Moneymaker, “Can’t Live Without Your Love”. It’s not a popular song by any means, but the lyrics rang true and will always hold a special place in my heart.

But if you don’t already have a special song, choosing one for your wedding day can be a stressful process. So if you’re in need for some ideas, here are our top 25 favorite first dance wedding songs:

#25 – Love of a Lifetime – Firehouse

#24 – When You Look Me in the Eyes – Jonas Brothers

#23 – You’re the Reason I Come Home – Ron Pope

#22 – Then – Brad Paisley

#21 – It’s Your Love – Tim McGraw & Faith Hill

#20 – Whatever It Is – Zac Brown Band

#19 – Feels Like Home – Chantal Kreviazuk

#18 – For Once in My Life – Frank Sinatra

#17 – Make You Feel My Love – Adele

#16 – I’ll Back You Up – Dave Matthews Band

#15 – You Had me From Hello – Kenny Chesney

#14 – Every Time I Close My Eyes – Babyface & Mariah Carey

#13 – At Last – Etta James

#12 – My Best Friend – Tim McGraw

#11 – Always and Forever – Heatwave

#10 – God Gave Me You – Blake Shelton

#9 – Love of my Life – Brian McKnight

#8 – When You Say Nothing At All – Alison Krauss

#7 – Come Rain or Come Shine – Ray Charles

#6 – A Moment Like This – Kelly Clarkson

#5 – Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flatts

#4 – Hold On – Michael Buble

#3 – I Love You This Big – Scotty McCreery

#2 – Stay With You – John Legend

#1 – ….we don’t want to ruin it for you. Check out the video to see our top choice! (Music Mashup)

3 Tips for Capturing your Guest’s Wedding Pictures

 

 

Do you remember the last wedding you attended?

Wedding Pictures Nathan Suher Photo credit: Squidoo

There you are, one of hundreds of guests sitting in the church pews waiting for the ceremony to begin. The music starts. Everyone stands – and pulls out there cameras (or smartphones). The bride walks down the aisle amidst a sea of cameras zooming, focusing and flashing.

And now it’s your time for the spotlight.

You’ve hired a wedding photographer to professionally capture the important and special moments on your wedding day. But what about all those pictures your guests took? Those impromptu moments that may have only been seen by one or two people?

I’m sure your wedding guests will have good intentions to send you the pictures they took. But how can you be so sure they’ll follow through? Here are three simple ways to help you capture your wedding guests’ photos.

  1. Disposable cameras: I know – long gone are the days of disposable cameras. Heck, long gone are the days of processing film! But giving guests access to disposable cameras can also give you a behind the scenes glimpse into your special day. And most photo processing centers today will give you the pictures on a CD so you don’t have to print them at all. (Not a fan of disposables? Ask your wedding photographer if they offer a camera service – where they provide digital cameras for each table to use.
  2. Remind guests to send you their pictures: Put a sign on each table or create take-home cards for guests with a website address where guests can upload their pictures. Sites like snapfish.com or photobucket.com are free photo sharing sites, or you can opt for a more customized paid service through theweddinglens.com.
  3. Create a photo drop-off center at your reception: Not sure if guests will follow through with uploading their pictures? Make it easy for them by setting up a photo drop-off center right at your wedding! Come equipped with a laptop, external drive and camera card reader. Man the station with a techy friend and have that person in charge of copying the pictures from your guest’s cameras and phones before they leave! (There are also paid services like guestcameras.com that can help you with this, but there are some drawbacks, so be sure to do all your research before signing up)

There you have it – our 3 tips for capturing your guest’s wedding pictures. What ideas do you have? Please share them by commenting below!

Top 10 Wedding Traditions: Why Do We Do That?

 

Top 10 Wedding Traditions: Why Do We Do That Photo courtesy of Pinterest

Have you ever wondered why your wedding ring sits on your left hand? Or why the bride is supposed to throw her wedding bouquet? What about the old saying of wearing something blue – where did that come from?

Yeah, we wondered too!

While some couples choose to make their wedding unique, others choose to celebrate with rich tradition. No matter what your wedding taste, we thought it’d be fun to explore the origins of some of the more common wedding traditions we are accustomed to.

  1. Having a specific finger designated to wear your ring: It is said that this finger has the vein of love
  2. The bride throws the bouquet: It is said that a bride is deemed lucky on their wedding day. So the act of throwing the bouquet is done so to pass on her good fortune.
  3. The bride wears something blue: It is said that blue symbolizes purity and fidelity, and thereby proves the bride’s worthiness (I wonder how the originators of this tradition would react knowing that many brides choose a garter as their something blue!)
  4. The bride wears a veil: It is said that the veil will help ward off evil spirits by disguising the bride.
  5. The wedding party dresses the same: Apparently evil spirits are highly intelligent, as this act was also meant to confuse them away from the bride.
  6. The bride stands on the left of the groom: To be able to protect his bride, the groom must have his right arm free (I feel bad for those poor left-handers).
  7. The groom throws the garter: This is one of my favorites – It is said that this is done by the groom to distract guests in keeping their hands off the bride.
  8. Carrying the bride over the threshold: Apparently some poor grooms used to steal their brides from their tribes, and the brides put up a fight by kicking and screaming. What’s a groom to do but carry her?
  9. Cutting of the wedding cake: The act of cutting the cake together is meant to symbolize the happy couple’s shared future together.
  10. The bride wears white: Apparently white wedding gowns were made popular by Queen Victoria in the 1800′s. So the white wedding dress came to symbolize royalty.

There you have it – our top 10 wedding traditions and the background behind them. It seems though that there are traditions for every aspect of your wedding day.

What are some of the traditions you and your fiancé will be including in your wedding day? Let us know by commenting below!
