And here you go, as promised… 😉
Wedding planning checklists seem to exist on every possible wedding website already. So, I figured, why not on mine as well? 😉
Firstly, it will actually help me to organize my own wedding. I felt the need of a more personalized wedding planning timeline than those I had seen on other sites or blogs. I thought it would be particularly important to include the “day-after” to-do list as this is something that is usually left out in the existing wedding planning checklists. Secondly, it will, hopefully, help those of you reading my blog, to get a different perspective on such a wedding planning essential as a timeline. Thirdly, I created this timeline as a text, with links to some of my previous posts, and as an image, so that you can easily save it on one of your Pinterest boards. So here you go, meticulously thought-through and delivered to your doorstep by Milknhoney-Me 😉Read More »
He can be the best man in the world. Prince charming, no less (with or without his horse), always happy to dine at your parents’ (wave and smile), always ready to save your life when a giant spider has turned your bed into a cocoon and is just waiting for an oblivious victim (you) to walk nonchalantly in just to parish timelessly in those hairy legs (seriously, I could write horror stories). The man of your dreams is also always there to open cans, jars and bottles for you (those that he himself closed with such a deadly grip like he was actually trying to prevent the Nazis from getting their hands on that apricot jam). He also accompanies you during shopping (“…please God, kill me now…”) and even feeds your cat (“…not to forget to take it to my next duck hunt… & shoot. By mistake, obviously”).
So this is all true and your man is a dream came true. But when you try to engage him into wedding planning, the white knight vanishes into the ether. And even if he continues sitting there, with a vacant stare in his eyes, trust me, he is gone.Read More »
In the South of France I work with these photographers:
Manuel is a great photographer and a great person to deal with. He travelled the world and photographed weddings everywhere from Beirut to Singapore, New York to Paris, Madrid to Buenos Aires. With his vast wedding photography experience and a photojournalist’s eye, Manuel knows how to make sure that not a single important moment, emotion or look escapes his lens. As he puts it himself, he is “in a constant search of a perfect image and every wedding is a different story and a new opportunity to find it”.Read More »
If you ask my opinion about two things NOT to save money on while organizing a wedding, I’ll tell you: 1. Photographer; 2. Food. Cut on any other element but I urge you not to save on these two.
As time goes by many things will be forgotten, memories will eventually fade. No one will remember those fantastic pink king-size lilies that fragranced the whole room. You might not remember that super-fancy knife that you cut your wedding cake with. Or maybe even the wedding cake itself won’t seem as crucial to you as it seems now. But photos will stay. Forever. Good or bad – they will be a silent reminder of the day when you became Husband and Wife. And if you make a mistake, the damage will be irreparable. There are ways to stay within budget. But photographer and food are the two sacred cows that just ought to be respected. I will tell you more about food in another post. Since this one is about photography, let’s stick to the topic.Read More »
