Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-13 17:01:58. Steps to a Better Engagement Ring Selfie. You have the perfect ring. Now, get that `gram you always dreamed of. 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, 2017-11-03 21:38:34. Think about this scenario. Your invitations are sent and you`ve crossed all your Ts and dotted every last I out there. It`s the day of the wedding and while your photographer is dutifully spreading out that adorable hand-calligraphed invitation suite, you glance over his shoulder and notice for the first time that the address for the church is listed incorrectly (even though you swear you double- and even triple-checked for errors). To make sure each guest that RSVP`d "yes" to your wedding gets to the right church on time you frantically post on Facebook the correct address of the church and hope it reaches everyone. That`s not quite the best way to do it. Putting your plans on Facebook means that some people who aren`t invited could see and feel left out—and let`s face it, your great-uncle Charlie hasn`t touched a computer since the `90s. If you want word to spread—fast—to the right people, having a communication plan makes everything easier. Here are a few easy-to-follow tips to come up with a wedding day communication plan.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 11:18:18. 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.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:07:46. Have Your Wedding Attire Ready to Go. Make arrangements at your bridal salon or local cleaners to have your wedding dress steamed—and don`t try it on after it`s been steamed or else it`ll wrinkle again. Store it in the garment bag from the bridal salon and hang it in a closet in a smoke-free and pet-free room. (You can lift the skirt out of the bag—just make sure to put a clean sheet on the ground below it first.) Also have an attendant pick up the groom and groomsmen tuxes. Deliver Welcome Baskets. Whether it`s you or an attendant, deliver your welcome baskets for guests to the hotel concierge. Make a list of names, delivery instructions and any additional information you have to prevent any mix-ups. How to Create a Wedding Communication Plan. You didn`t know you needed one, but having a communication plan could save you a lot of anxiety come the wedding day. How many guests will be at your wedding? Will you have a small, intimate gathering of 30? A large bash of over 500? No matter how small or large your guest list is, you`ll need a way to communicate with everyone you`ve invited just in case things go awry.

The venue is the perfect size and free on the date you want…but the carpet is terrible, the wallpaper clashes with your colors and the lighting is all wrong! We tapped our favorite wedding pros for clever solutions to the most common décor challenges. The space’s chairs are dated, and they don’t fit my color scheme or style. Chiavari rental chairs. The Expert: Krystel Tien of Couture Events in San Diego.

"A few properly placed items can make a huge visual impact," Tien adds.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 11:17:38. However, guests should never spend more on a gift than they`re comfortable with. That said, to help rein in gift spending, stick with the couple`s wedding registry and buy early. About half (46 percent) of a couple`s registry items are under $50, so guests should look up a couple`s registry on TheKnot.com and buy gifts in their price range before all the moderately priced ones are gone. If you want to make a gift from their registry feel more personal and you`re on a budget, consider purchasing something like mixing bowls or bakeware, paired with a homemade recipe book featuring a few your favorite dishes. If you want to get an expensive gift, go in on it as a group with other guests. Group gifting allows you to join in with friends and get the couple a more substantial gift than if each of you purchased smaller ones on your own. How to Handle Traveling to Costly Destination Weddings. Since one in four couples wed in a state other than where they currently reside, it`s no surprise that 37 percent of guests require travel and accomodations ($321 for travel; $322 for acommodations), as well as 68 percent of attendants ($342 for travel; $293 for accomodations). Guests should take advantage of wedding hotel blocks—the easiest way to score a great deal on wedding accommodations—and they should book early. Guests may also want to consider booking a house rental in lieu of a hotel. With a house rental, you`re likely splitting the cost with more people, plus you can stock your kitchen on a dime by buying your own groceries. If you`re one of the 44 percent of wedding guests and attendants who are traveling to a wedding by air, consider leveraging travel miles and rewards to book your flight. Alternatively, if you have flexible travel dates, make a vacation out of the trip by adding a few extra days and leave mid-week, when flights tend to be cheaper. If you do end up vacationing in the wedding destionation, that likely means someone is coming with you. The majority of wedding guests and attendants (90 percent) are invited to the wedding day with a plus-one option. And 78 percent of wedding guests and attendants brought a plus-one to the most recent wedding they attended. Of those invited with a plus-one, 24 percent report spending more on a wedding gift because they were invited with an additional guest. Of those not invited with a plus-one option, only 1 in 10 felt they should have been invited with a guest. How to Spend Less on a Wedding Outfit.If you’re in your 20s or 30s, chances are you’re attending multiple, back-to-back weddings. That means the costs of attire, accessories and shoes can quickly add up. On average, 48 percent of wedding guests purchase a new outfit for weddings, with an average of an $81 price tag (77 percent of wedding attendants purchase new attire too and spend an average of $207 on it). If you`re wearing a dress to a few different upcoming wedding celebrations, buy one dress and accessorize it differently with your jewelry, shoes and more. There are a ton of great options for renting wedding-ready attire too, from Rent the Runway and Vow to be Chic for ladies to The Black Tux and Xedo for men. Men may want to invest in two good suits, a darker navy or black suit along with a lighter suit in either gray or khaki, switching up their shirt and tie for different looks at different weddings.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-27 12:05:52. Here`s How Much the Average Wedding Guest and Attendant Spend. 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.

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 11:16:42. Maid of Honor Duties to Remember for the Wedding Day. The bride will be just a little busy on her wedding day, which is why it`s a good idea for maids of honor to know these day-of to-dos. A maid of honor takes on a ton of duties—and they definitely don`t stop the day of the wedding. From hanging up the bride`s dress after the reception to keeping her water glass topped off all day, don`t miss these must-do tasks to help out the couple, keep problems at bay and ensure everyone is having fun. Make sure the bride and bridal party are on track to have their hair and makeup done in time (and that everyone looks great!). If you sense that someone`s updo is going to take a really long time, or see that the bride`s lipstick being applied isn`t the one she wanted, it`s your job to step in. Let everyone politely know of time constraints and reshuffle the schedule to make the timing work. Be aware of any rips in the bride`s dress and any veil or train malfunctions throughout the day.
