Wedding Checklist

I have used theknot.com for a lot of my research. It has everything that you could possibly think of for planning a wedding. One of the many features that I have explored on the knot is their wedding checklist. This list goes over what to do four to 5 months before the wedding, two to three months before the wedding, six weeks before the wedding, three to four weeks before the wedding, one to to two weeks before the wedding, the day before the wedding, the day of the wedding, and after the wedding.

Planning a wedding for film is a little bit different than planning an actual wedding, but I found a lot of the items in the four to five months before the wedding checklist helpful such as creating a budget, looking at color palettes , flowers, wedding dresses, making a folder on the computer and a binder dedicated to the wedding (or in my case film), figuring out who is going to contribute what to the wedding and so on. If you have no clue where to start planning I definitely advise going over the checklist. I suggest going over it no matter what. Even if you have already started planning there could be some items you missed or hadn’t thought about. So check it out and have fun planning your wedding. I sure am… even if my wedding is pretend.

Picking the Perfect Wedding Dress

Here is a great article on how to choose your wedding dress. It gives tips for choosing the right dress. The first step is to pick your wedding date or at least what time of the year you will be getting married so your dress is season appropriate. Next you should set a budget before even entering the store that way you won’t fall in love with a dress you can not afford. Next the article discusses what to expect at the bridal shop and what you should bring… bring pictures of dresses you admire, do not bring too many people. Too many opinions distract from your own. The next section of the article goes into detail about how to pick the right dress for your body type.  The article also goes over final touches, accessories and so on. I recommend checking it out before looking at dresses.

 

To get inspiration for pictures to bring to the bridal shop with you I recommend going to theknot.com Here you can narrow down your choices and get a bunch of great pictures for when you go to try on dresses. I am using theknot.com to gather ideas for how I want the dress in my film to look.
