Fun Bridesmaid Gift Idea

We were surfing the net the other day and ran into these cute cosmetic bags. Now this is just not any cosmetic bag; it is a custom photo bag (how cute). There are several different sizes and they range in price. The website is user friendly and purchasing the bags is nice and easy. For your bridesmaids, suggests using pictures from college days, childhood photos or even a cute pic of their man. LOVE IT!!

6 Ways to De-Stress the Planning

We aren't going to sugar coat it. Planning a wedding can be tough at times. There are many details to consider. Check out these six tips to help ease the stress and keep you sane so you don't lose sight of the real meaning of your wedding day-the Two of You!

1. Stay ahead of the game.
Do what you can, when you can so it can be crossed off your list of things to do. Putting it off will only increase stress.

2. Trust your wedding professionals.
You hired them, so you must have had a good reason for your decision. Let them work their magic and take care of you.

3. Make a decision and don't look back.
There are millions of ideas and options when it comes to your wedding. You will go crazy if you look and look and entertain every idea. Trust your first choice-it's usually the best one.

4. Keep your guests' happiness in mind.
Yes, it is your big day, but these people will travel near and far for you. The day should be just as much for them as it is for you.

5. Be creative and unique.
In other words, be you. Add your personality and personal touch wherever possible.

6. Hire a wedding planner.
Like we said, planning isn't easy, and aren't you kind of busy anyway? Have a planner come on board for at least the coordination to ease the stress.

Hot Trend Report: Guest Agendas

Being a guest at a wedding can also be stressful. What time do we eat? What time is the cocktail hour over? What time are we cutting the cake? Wait! There are cocktails? Savvy wedding planner, Aleasha Shelton from A Day to Cherish Weddings, suggests a guest wedding agenda.

Think of it like a program, but the the entire event. How wonderful for the guest at your wedding to know moment by moment what to expect. You can make it as detailed or general as you'd like. For example, you can add times for each event or you can just give the order of events .

Talk to your invitation experts for suggestions on presentation and stationary.
