If you have any ill or elderly guests coming to your wedding, it will be meaningful for them to know you`re so glad they can attend. Show your love by making sure they have proper transportation to and from the airport and your wedding events and that they have a comfortable place to stay. You can ask family members, friends or attendants to help with any pick-ups and drop-offs. Hand These Items Off. Getting married also means having a lot of important things to distribute among your family and attendants. Give your marriage license to your officiant. Present attendants with gifts at the rehearsal dinner. Present parents and each other with gifts. Give wedding bands to the best man and the maid of honor to hold during the ceremony. Give the best man the officiant`s fee envelope to be handed off after the ceremony. Hand off place cards, table cards, menus, favors and any other items for setting the tables to the caterer and/or reception site manager.

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.

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. The Style Hack: This is an easy fix: Rent ones that complement your wedding style or colors, like classic chiavari chairs or rustic wood benches. "We love to incorporate specialty lounge furniture and beautiful vintage pieces," Tien says. If budget is a concern, select a couple of pieces that will have maximum effect, like king and queen chairs for the sweetheart table. "A few properly placed items can make a huge visual impact," Tien adds.

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, 2017-11-28 12:12:35. 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.

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. If you don`t think they`d mesh with your crew, leave them off the list. Set honest expectations. What sort of a role do you want your wedding party to play? Is it important to you that they help to address wedding invites, shop for your day-of attire with you and attend all of the prewedding parties? Or will it be enough for them to wear what you choose and show up on your wedding day? If you want a very involved wedding party, it may not be the best idea to ask friends or family who live far away or have extremely hectic schedules.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-28 12:13:46. 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, 2017-11-28 12:07:36. Fix it before you post. Use an editing app like Photoshop Express, VSCO Cam or Afterlight. These apps make it easy to experiment with cropping, contrast, saturation and sharpness to get the very best from your digital photo. If all else fails, use a filter. Instagram`s go-to filters made it easy for anyone to take a share-worthy photo. Add your ring selfie, apply that perfect Valencia filter and done. Share! If ever there were a time to be sentimental, it`s now. Write the caption about marrying your best friend, get creative with the emojis and tag the location of your proposal to share on social media.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-28 12:11:55. Remember: You`re going to wear this band every day, so the goal is to choose something that seamlessly becomes a part of your life. If you play sports or an instrument, a slimmer ring with rounded edges (appropriately called the `comfort fit`) may make the most sense. If you work with your hands, you may want to search for a simple, solid metal ring and avoid gemstones that can come loose or carvings, which can trap dirt. If you`re super active, go for platinum, which is extra durable (when scratched, the metal is merely displaced and doesn`t actually wear away). Try Something Different. You may love the idea of a braided rose gold ring or a diamond eternity band, but once you get to the store, try some rings that aren`t on your inspiration board. Chat with the jeweler, then let them make suggestions based on what you like and don`t rule anything out. Just like with wedding dresses, you may end up loving something you never thought you would. Wear it around the store for a few minutes and while you have it on, try writing and texting as a comfort test. Think Long Term. While you shouldn`t be afraid of being trendy, make sure the style you choose is something you`ll want to wear for, say, the next 40 years. Just don`t stress too much: You`re not married to the ring and can always make changes to it (add diamonds or go from white gold to platinum) later on to mark a special anniversary. Consider the Maintenance. To keep a wedding band with stones clean and sparkling, you`ll need to wash and soak it in warm sudsy water, then gently brush it with a soft toothbrush or eyebrow brush (too much pressure can loosen the stones from their setting), rinse it and pat it dry with a soft lint-free cloth. Sound like too much upkeep? You may want to opt for a fuss-free gold or platinum ring—simply rub it with a soft, lint-free cloth (chamois works well) and you`re good to go. Size It Right. Most people rarely take off their wedding bands; they wear them through summers, winters, exercise, pregnancies—all times when your fingers swell and contract from heat, cold, water retention or weight gain. To find the right size that will best weather all of those changes, schedule your final ring fitting at a time when you`re calm and your body temperature is normal. That means you should never finalize first thing in the morning (you retain water from the night before), right after you`ve exercised (fingers swell) or when you`re extremely hot or cold (which can cause your hands to expand and shrink). Check for Quality. Quality control applies to all rings, not just your wedding bands. Make sure the ring has two marks inside the band: the manufacturer`s trademark (this proves they stand behind their work) and the quality mark, 24K or PLAT, for example (this proves the metal quality is what the retailer says it is).
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-28 12:09:28. Act as a host throughout the day. Does Aunt Jane need help with directions to the reception? Does it look like the cake baker and caterer are having a disagreement? Did Uncle Mike ask for a vegetarian dinner and not get one? Does the bride`s grandfather look like he wants to dance but doesn`t have a partner? Did the groom`s father get stuck in an elevator right before his big speech? (Trust us, it happens.) Take it as a cue for you to step in and help where it`s needed, acting on behalf of the couple and their families—especially for things that the newlyweds definitely don`t need to be bothered with or know about. Tie up loose ends at the end of the wedding. Create a list with the couple or their parents ahead of time of any vendors that need to be paid when the night is over, so you can be the point person to hand out checks. Also, keep an eye on the gift table and card box, and delegate help bringing gifts and cards into a secure room or someone`s car after the party`s over. Take care of the bride`s wedding dress after the reception.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-28 11:48:03. This is why having an emergency kit on hand comes in handy—unfortunately, sometimes zippers break, buttons pop and trains rip, so it`s good to have a needle and thread on standby. (Same goes for stain remover if the morning mimosas take a spill on a garment.) Help adjust the bride`s veil and smooth out her train before she goes down the aisle too. Learn how to bustle the bride`s dress. It doesn`t matter if you learn how to tie or button the bustle during a fitting or the night before the wedding—just make sure you know how to bustle the gown quickly for the wedding day. (It can take a few tries, especially if there are ribbons involved.) Make sure the bride eats and drinks throughout the day. Even if she`s too jittery to eat breakfast, carve out a few minutes of the morning for her to eat something substantial to keep her energy up—a granola bar is better than nothing. Throughout the day, refresh her mimosas and water glass (especially her water glass) and get her a plate from the buffet at dinner. And if you notice she`s had nothing but champagne at the reception—which happens!—make sure she takes a few sips of water between each one.
