Excitement, tears, fears, and love abound as the big day approaches, but so does the reality of planning.
Every bride's dream of having a perfect wedding, but like all planned events even the wedding ceremonies generally have one or more glitches,
which need to be smoothed. Most important thing is to remain calm and cool and stay with your plans.
Before planning your wedding it's important to know exactly what you want before you start making those final decisions that many times can't be reversed.
Talk about what you want with your finance. You'll more than likely have a budget that you need to stick to so you'll have to decide what's important to
you that you won't give up versus what you're willing to part with.
Your first decision will be the wedding date. If the ceremony will take place in a church or some other heavily used building, confirm that the date is
available. If it isn't you'll have to settle on another, so it's a good plan to have several possibilities when you are ready to book.
You'll need to plan your budget carefully. Use common sense when choosing some things for your wedding. Where possible think of ways where you can cut costs.
For instance, if you want to hire a DJ to handle the music at your reception you might want to ask around to see if you know anyone who can do this for you
at a low price.
When you start buying the things that you need for your wedding use a list that includes all costs and items that you need and make sure that you stick to it.
Contact merchants in your area that offer the services that you need and see if you can negotiate a better price. After all, it never hurts to try.
Choosing the photographer for your wedding is one of the most important decisions that you'll make since your photos, like your memories, will last
a life time. Take your time looking for the right photographer before making your final decision. Ask to see plenty of samples so that you can see the
range of photos that the photographer can take. You want to be certain that the pictures that you want are possible.
Every bride wants to make her wedding day perfect, no matter how big, how small, or how simple, each bride wants her special day
to hold a reflection of her personality.

Bridal occasions require some effort to achieve success, with proper planning a key ingredient. Bridal hairstyles are the same; they require thought, consideration and a solid plan. There are many important factors to consider when choosing a bridal hairstyle.
The length and texture of your hair will determine what can actually be achieved. Next, your bridal hairstyle needs to complement the gown you will be wearing. For example, if your gown is low cut off the shoulder, you should consider choosing a bridal hairstyle where some hair falls down onto your shoulders so not to leave that area bare. You can still consider an upstyle, but you should make sure that some hair is down, even if it's only a little, to soften the style.
If your gown has sleeves and even a collar, definitely look at upstyles that will show it off best. If you would like to wear your hair down, just be sure to choose a bridal hairstyle with lots of body and bounce, or consider a half-up, half-down look.
Another important factor to consider is face shape and body shape adjustments, where height and width can be added or minimized to suit your profile, as well as your partner's profile. If you are tall and thin, you should keep away from high tight upstyles that will add more length to your profile, and you should look for curls that are always softer in texture, due to their round shape. If your gown is plain and simple in design, you should consider more detailed bridal hairstyles to create an interesting overall appearance. The opposite applies if your gown is very detailed.
Other points that require proper planning include the length of your neck, the size of your ears, as well as the height of your hairline. If all this seems complicated and confusing to you, don't despair, because now you can see for yourself what you would look like with various Formal and Bridal hairstyles.
You can upload a waist high photo of yourself with your gown on, and then try on all of the Formal and Bridal hairstyles to see which you like and what suits you best. You can also print out your favorite bridal hairstyles and take them to your stylist for thorough consultation and advice.
