Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-11 10:29:40. 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. You may be setting yourself up for disappointment. Tip for the taking: For friends who can`t commit for whatever reason (they live out of town or are busy at work), let them in on just a few wedding prep activities, like an invitation stuffing party complete with wine and pizza. Include your brothers and sisters. Not to sound like your mom, but think about it: Even if you`re not particularly close to his sister or her brother, siblings are going to be around well past your 10-year anniversary, and chances are, you`ll become closer over the years. If you come from a big family and you can`t possibly include everyone, draw the line at teenagers. Instead, make them a part of the ceremony by asking them to pass out programs or seat guests. Tip for the taking: Traditionally, it`s ladies on one side and guys on the other, but feel free to break that rule and have them stand on either side of the aisle. Consider the size of your wedding. You can have as many (or few) bridesmaids and groomsmen as you like. The average wedding party size is four on either side. Use that as a guide when you decide. Depending on formality, go larger or smaller.

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.

Once you decide to customize your wedding ring, you’ll face a tough decision: what do you want it to look like? Anything goes with a custom ring; from a classic look redesigned to something completely unusual. As you begin the customization process it`s important to consider the fact that you’ll be wearing this wedding ring for the rest of your life! Are you a glamorous person who wants to sport a diamond that stops traffic? Are you looking for something a little more delicate or petite? Do you want something that resembles your favorite Star Wars or Marvel character? Feel free to take risks with your ring design to try and capture the look you are going for.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-23 11:30:17. 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.

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 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, 2017-11-23 13:10:07. 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.

Find an Instagram-worthy skyline, latte or patterned pillow to serve as the backdrop of your ring selfie. Go the distance. Cell phone pics will never be professional quality, but there are a few tricks to make your shots look almost as crisp. Avoid the zoom on your camera— physically moving your phone will make a less pixelated photo. If you`re using an iPhone, set up your shot and then tap the screen to focus the lens. Avoid shaky shots by pushing the buttons on your earbuds to snap a photo instead of tapping your screen. Strike a (flattering) pose. Say good-bye to creepy hands by relaxing your fingers, adding a prop or resting your hands on your new fiancé`s arm. Avoid shots that highlight every pore and strand of hair on your hands by a slight tilt of the camera—or your hand—instead of shooting straight on. Take lots of options, but only upload one. You want your ring to stand out and look awesome. Skip the collages and pick one great shot to feature.
Kobe Wedding Rings, 2017-11-23 13:10:08. 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.
