The Expert: Brian Worley of yourBASH! in Santa Monica, California. The Style Hack: While you can`t exactly redecorate, you can shift the focus. "I like to transform a space with what I call `moving wallpaper`—we use projectors and add moving images to the walls," Worley says. This trick also doubles as a lighting feature, giving the space a unique look. If a dozen projectors aren`t in your budget, stick to lighting that masks the design. Uplighting and gobos can transform a space instantly—even old wallpaper can disappear amid a soft, colorful glow. The drapes are patterned, and the venue won’t take them down. Draped ceiling wedding reception. The Expert: Annie Lee of Daughter of Design in New York City. The Style Hack: "Buy yards of simple fabric and pin them over the offending drapes," Lee says. It`s a quick fix—no sewing required—and it can really transform the venue. Unlimited budget? Drape the whole space! Coordinate your fabric choices with your table linens, working in a texture or small pattern to keep things fresh and fun.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-12 13:10:28. Start Your Ring Search Early. Once you have a basic idea of what kind of ring you`d like, it`s time for the fun part: trying them on! Give yourselves at least two to three months before the wedding date to ring shop. You`ll need this time to browse, research prices and revisit rings that catch your eye. If you have your heart set on a custom ring, you`ll probably need even more time. And keep in mind: Extras, like engraving, can take up to one month. Mix It Up. Don`t fret if you like platinum and your partner likes yellow gold. There`s no rule that says you have to choose the same metal or even style. You could compromise with braided bands that blend the two metals together or just be totally different—the key to finding something you both love is choosing wedding bands that reflect your individual styles. Set a Budget. Shop with the assumption that you`ll spend about 3 percent of your total wedding budget on the rings. Depending on the retailer, a plain, 14-karat gold or simple platinum band can cost around $1,000. Embellishments, like diamonds or engraving, will quickly add to the cost, so factor that into your budget if you plan to personalize your rings with any of these extras. The price of engraving is usually based on the number of characters, the font used and whether it`s engraved by hand or machine (hand is usually pricier). Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:48:13. Top Tips to Choosing Your Wedding Party. They`re your support group, your A-team, your wedding day front line. Here`s our crash course on creating your perfect wedding party. Choosing who will stand up with you on one of the most important days of your life may seem daunting, but don’t worry—we’re here to walk you through the steps. So take a deep breath, we promise it’s not as tough as it seems. Think twice before you ask. Once you`ve asked someone to be in your wedding party, you can`t go back. So while it may be tempting to ask all of your favorite friends to be in your wedding party the minute you get engaged, don`t. Take your time. Give yourself at least a month, if you can, to mull over the options. Then ask yourself this question: Will I be just as close to this person in five years as I am now? Tip for the taking: If you`re on the fence about asking someone to be in your wedding party, consider how they`d fit in with the rest of your attendants.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:22:04. Consider Buying Your Ring and Your Bands Together. If you prefer to be surprised by the engagement ring, this may not work, but knowing what bands go with the engagement ring can help you make a decision. For example, if you have a unique engagement ring, you may want a simple, no-fuss band, whereas a simple engagement ring may call for the added sparkle of a diamond pavé band. Also think about how the rings fit together. If you`re planning on wearing your engagement and wedding ring side by side, 24/7, look for a contour or shadow band designed to interlock with the matching engagement ring. If you`re planning on wearing your wedding ring alone, you may want a more intricate style that will look great with or without your engagement ring. Talk to your jeweler about finding a band that works with your ring (some can even create both at the same time).

If you just got engaged, chances are you`ll be sharing the great news through an Instagram engagement ring selfie (or by sharing your proposal on our sister site HowHeAsked.com). While you may not be into mirror selfies, post-workout selfies or duck-face selfies, the ring selfie is something sacred. Get the photo just right by following a few simple rules of thumb—er, ring finger. Lighting is everything. If you`re not outside, set up your shot near a window for some natural light. If you take an iPhone photo in a dimly lit room, you`re pretty much guaranteed a blurry photo. Flourescents and yellow bulb lights aren`t much better. Trust us–you want natural sunlight. Whether you`re inside or out, watch out for tricky shadows. Know thy ring. Experiment with the angle of your shot so you capture the most amazing qualities of your ring. Love the unique setting? Take a photo on an angle to highlight it. Can`t get over the shape of your stone? Try an overhead shot (but remember, skip the flash). Get your nails done. Everyone wants to see the ring, but no one wants to see your hangnails. If your fiancé caught you with a surprise proposal and you`re due for a manicure, but just can`t wait to snap a photo, put on a little lotion and get creative with your pose. Hold hands with your fiancé, frame your nails out of the shot or do a fist pump pose at the camera—why not?.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:24:57. Think of a concise message your guests will understand quickly. No need for a lengthy explanation of what happened. Keep your message to guests short and to the point. All they need to know is that plans have changed for some reason or another, and what they should do in the meantime. Make sure your wedding website is accurate and up to date. Your wedding website will get tons of views leading up to your wedding, because people misplace invitations or forget to bring them along when they`re traveling. Make sure the main page of your site contains any new information guests should know and all addresses are accurate. Assemble a group who can be trusted to start a phone (or text) tree. You`ll want to delegate this kind of a task to a few members from each side of the family, so it spreads evenly and no relatives are left in the dark—especially those who aren`t likely to check your wedding website the day of. You`ll also want to assign the task to a few friends on both sides of your wedding party to notify all nonrelatives. Once they start spreading the word, and the people who heard from them spread it to everyone they know attending, word of mouth will have taken care of your little invitation snafu.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:22:45. Why It`s Hidden: Most hotels don`t factor in a welcome bag delivery fee when you block rooms. And they may fail to mention the rate unless you ask—and they`ll just add it to your final bill. They may even charge you a fee for holding the welcome bags if you drop them off before the guests arrive, so make sure to ask. The Cost: Up to $7 per bag. How to Avoid it: During the booking process, ask about the hotel`s policy on receiving and delivering welcome bags to guests` rooms. It may be free or cheaper if they hand the bags out at the counter as guests check in. Rental Transport. Why It`s Hidden: You`d assume the rental companies would include these extra fees in the per-item costs (do they honestly think you`re going to fit 150 Chiavari chars in your car?), but surprisingly they don`t. The Cost: From $50 up to more than $500. How to Avoid It: Ask the rental company what their shipping and packaging fees are up front—if the cost is too high for your budget, shop around a bit. You might actually save some money by renting items from a more expensive company that includes delivery costs at no extra charge. Taxes and Gratuities. Why It`s Hidden: Even though these aren`t exactly hidden—we all know there are taxes on almost everything and gratuities are expected for almost any service—most couples don`t think about how much they`ll end up owing during the planning process. The Cost: This will depend on the total amount of money you`re spending as well as the location of the event (taxes vary by state). How to Avoid It: There`s no getting around paying taxes, but paying the entire bill in one lump sum can help lower the overall price. A safe bet: Tack on an extra third of your total costs to your budget for tips and taxes. Cake Cutting and Corkage Fees.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:23:29. Just make sure they`re comfortable with whatever you want them to wear. Choose responsible honor attendants. The best honor attendants are friends who are responsible (since you`re going to rely on them for some big wedding planning tasks and to hold on to your expensive rings) and good at providing emotional support, because there just might be a few prewedding meltdowns. (It also helps if they`re super-fun, since they`ll be planning the bachelor and bachelorette parties.) Tip for the taking: If your best friend isn`t always the most dependable person, it`s perfectly okay to have two best men or maids of honor. Pick your unpredictable BFF and another friend you can rely on for the big, important duties. Don`t ask someone just because they asked you. Weddings are no time for quid pro quo. You don`t need to ask someone to be in your wedding because they asked you to be in their wedding. Don`t ask the college roommate you haven`t spoken to in five years just to return the favor. Tip for the taking: If they want to talk to you about why they aren`t in your wedding, be completely honest. Explain that it was a tough decision but you really felt like you should have the people you feel closest to at this point in your life standing up for you, and there are so many of those people (including him or her) that you had to leave out some very special ones. Research other roles.

The Knot 2017 Wedding Guest Study surveyed over 1,000 people to find out just how costly attending a wedding is. With wedding gifts, travel and attire, it`s no surprise that being a wedding guest can be one expensive honor—but just how expensive? For The Knot 2016 Wedding Guest Study, we surveyed over 1,000 people who`ve been a guest or attendant at a wedding in the past three years, and the findings are eye-opening. We found that the average guest spends $118 on the wedding gift, and wedding attendants are spending even more at $177, on average. (But remember, this number is an average, which means depending on where you`re attending each wedding, your spend could be higher or lower.) Plus, if you`re a member of the wedding party, you`re shelling out for a more expensive type of gift: 6 in 10 spent $500 or less on the bachelor/bachelorette party (including attire, drinks, meals, activities and party favors, and not including flights, accomodations or gifts). But on average, men spend more ($738) than women ($472). Find more of our guest and attendant stats below, coupled with tips on how to save. How to Rein in Spending on Wedding Gifts. Personal wedding websites remain the number one way couples share their gift registries with guests (83 percent). Official wedding registries continue to be the most popular place to select a gift to give the couple, with 37 percent of wedding guests and attendants purchasing a wedding gift directly from a registry. Cash and checks are also popular gift options, with nearly one-third (29 percent) of guests gifting either cash (21 percent) or writing a check (8 percent). One in 10 (10 percent) wedding guests and attendants provide the couple with a gift card as their wedding gift. Seven percent of guests contribute funds to the couple`s honeymoon as their wedding gift. And with the spirit of giving back on the wedding day on the rise, 1 percent of guests gift a charity contribution on behalf of the couple as their wedding gift.
