I often hear “Photography is the most important thing to us!”

bride and bridesmaidsWhen I meet with couples about their wedding day, they often tell me that Professional Photography is the most important thing to them!  That is, until they find out what it costs.  So, then I wonder if what they said is really true.

Let’s examine this for a moment and do some comparisons to see what you (personally) feel would be the most important thing to you on your wedding day.

I feel that whatever the most important item on your wedding day checklist is, should go at the top of the list and whatever is the least important to you should go on the bottom.  You should pay for the most important item first and then you have the remainder of your wedding budget to spread out for everything else, right?  Makes sense to me.  (Every item and detail of your wedding is important, but some more than others.)

More often than not, when I meet with couples, they have already bought their Wedding Dress, booked their Location, DJ, Cake, Limo and sometimes even Flowers.  So, by the time they meet with me, more than half of their wedding budget has been spent, or promised…but photography is the most important thing to them. (Hmmm)

If you want to know how important professional photography REALLY is to you, ask yourself these questions:  (Would you pay / Did you pay)

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Wedding Dress than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Bridal Party Gifts than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Wedding Shoes than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Will you pay / Did you pay more for your DJ or Band than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Limo (or Limos) than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Flowers than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Wedding Cake than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Reception Venue location than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Dinner Selections than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

Would you pay / Did you pay more for your Wedding Rings than you’re willing to pay for your photography?

If you answered Yes to more than one of these, then really…how important is professional photography to you?

Using the above Ten examples, on a scale from 1 – 10 (1 being the highest importance), where do you have Photography on that list?

If it’s not in the top three, then perhaps photography is not really that important to you…or perhaps you may need to reevaluate your list, or your budget.

Every person is different and will have this list in a different order, which is perfectly fine and that’s what makes us all unique.  Where did you place professional photography on your list?

An experienced, talented, professional photographer that can capture all of the amazing images that will be your fondest memories forever…for some people is Priceless!

Are you one of these people?  If so, then invest more in your Professional Photography and have amazing and beautiful memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.

After all, Professional Photography is the most important thing to you…right?  🙂

Tokens to Give Guests When You Have a Summer Theme

Tokens to Give Guests When You Have the Summer Theme

By Harrison Fray
 
Wedding guests are now expecting to receive wedding tokens each time they attend a wedding. Tradition dictates the giving of wedding favors for all guests during the wedding reception. It is now important to give a special attention to this part of the wedding event since people are looking forward to receiving one. Carry out the wedding favors from the theme chosen for the wedding. After the wedding, it is pertinent that guests leave the party with something to bring home as a remembrance of your wedding. Distributed wedding tokens are something that matches the bride or the groom’s personalities.

Classic colors are very in for summer time themed weddings like sky blue, yellow, yellow green, pink, and lavender. You can choose a different color for summer like peach, teal, and green for the summer wedding theme. Wedding tokens should also come to mind after thinking about your wedding dresses, invitations and flowers Consider the following ideas for your summer theme tokens:

Blooming flowers and season is summer time. The blossoming flower is like the love felt during summer. Summer is a celebration of gallant and bright colors and this is made possible by many flowers. The ambiance will be much more summer themed if you match the wedding token designs with the summer colors you have chosen for the other decorations such as the centerpieces or the backdrop.

Aside from the flowers, try adding fresh fruits in small baskets, thus serving as your wedding tokens as well as centerpieces. You can also do away with mangoes, strawberries, pineapple and peaches. Find anything that can be displayed like ceramics if there is no more time to get the fruits for the party.

Design the tokens with a nature feel, put flowers and birds if possible. There are candles that have the summer scent, you may get one with flower designs or any bird designs for your tokens. Cutomize the candle holders with your initials or names and the date of the wedding. Look for candle holders that can bear your name to customize your wedding candle favors. Add the theme in all the things you use for the wedding. The centerpieces are quite hefty to prepare, if you do not have enough time, then just use summer themed napkins instead.

Make your wedding as fun as it can be with summer theme and make the day very colorful and festive with fruits and other decors.
