Autumn Wedding Styles

The perfect season for a special ceremony.

Summer is at its sweltering peak, but with the end of August just a few brief weeks away, the prospect of autumn cool is growing more and more appealing. The fall has something for everyone: The start of Football, Labor Day cookouts, leaf piles, holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. It’s a season both of youthful fun and wiser, more mature romance. In other words, it’s the perfect season for a wedding. If you have any kind of input for your wedding day, it’s what you’re going to wear, and if you’re tying the knot anytime between September and the end of November, you should be sure that your ensemble as a bridegroom reflects the class and taste of the season.

The Stripping Down of the Bachelor Party

At some point in the history of mandom, we collectively reached the decision that bachelor parties should be spent in the presence of booze, bros, and scantily clad women. With grooms-to-be being all but expected to adhere to this societal norm, the ultimate effect was the redefining of the term “bachelor party” so that it was synonymous with “debauchery.”

In retrospect it sounds a little cliche, a little expected, and when we get right down to the down and dirty, maybe a little classless too.

But interestingly enough, it’s also becoming decreasingly popular. Whether you want to chalk it off to the rising age of the average groom, the economy, or a stronger embrace of individuality, raunchiness and rowdiness are losing their status as sendoff staples. A recent poll on wedding website theknot.com indicated as much, showing that over 50% of engaged men were planning on low key bachelor parties. (more…)

Cut Costs: Buy Groomsmen Tuxedos Instead of Renting

The summer months are filled with a whirlwind of bachelor parties, rehearsal dinners, and weddings.  If you are  engaged, than hopefully you have been paying close attention to the rising cost of weddings.  According to recent surveys conducted by the Wedding Channel and TheKnot.com, the average cost of an American wedding in 2011 came in at upwards of $27,000.

The Perfect Wedding Video

You’ve thought of every detail to make your wedding perfect then realize you need to have video. There are a number of ways to do this. One is hiring a professional. Another is to do it yourself meaning asking a friend or relative. If you decide to go the professional route you can begin by asking your photographer for a recommendation. They’ve probably worked with everyone in your area really know who’s good. Other option is to look at video companies and their website samples. They will have professional editing and affects which can make your video a memorable Hollywood style movie.

Using The Professional

The main quality you want to look for is a good documentarian. Having a videographer that is flexible and willing to be there while the bride is getting ready and having her pre-wedding photos taken at the house can be wonderful moments to capture on tape. Think of everything you’d like to see and make a list of events for the videographer. (more…)
