Wedding Videos - Get Married TV - Season 2 - Episode 01

  1. 1. >>WELCOME TO GET MARRIED, I’M COLIN COWIE. ARE YOU A TRADITIONAL BRIDE, A SEXY BRIDE, OR A ROMANTIC BRIDE? FINDING YOUR BRIDAL STYLE WILL DETERMINE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF YOUR ENTIRE WEDDING. TODAY, WE’LL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR BRIDAL STYLE IS TOTALLY UTTERLY YOU. >>AND I’M DEANNA PAPPAS. SINGER ASHLEE SIMPSON IS KNOWN FOR HER ROCKIN’ SOUND… AND WHEN SHE MARRIED FELLOW ROCKER PETE WENTZ THEIR WEDDING WAS EDGY AND OVER-THE-TOP. TODAY, WE’LL SHOW YOU WHAT THEY DID. GET READY… IT’S GET MARRIED! >> WHEN IT COMES TO PLANNING WEDDINGS, MY PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE – ITS BETTER TO DO A FEW THINGS WELL, THAN TO STRETCH YOURSELF AND YOUR RESOURCES TOO THIN WITH OVER AMBITIOUS GOALS. SO DON’T CONCERN YOURSELF WITH CREATING AN OVER THE TOP PRODUCTION, RATHER FOCUS ON THE PARTS THAT MEAN THE MOST TO YOU AND HAVE THE BEST IMPACT ON YOUR GUEST. GETMARRIED.COM AND I HAVE ADVICE AND WEDDING PLANNING TOOLS THAT WILL GUIDE YOU TO THE ELEMENTS THAT WILL MAKE THE BEST IMPRESSION ON YOUR GUEST AND ENSURE YOUR WEDDING OOZES YOUR SENSE OF STYLE AND PERSONALITY. TO ME, WEDDINGS ARE LIVING, BREATHING THEATER – TELLING “YOUR” STORY. AND TO DO IT RIGHT, YOU MUST ANSWER ONE KEY QUESTION. WHAT IS YOUR BRIDAL STYLE? YOUR WEDDING CELEBRATION IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU AND YOUR GROOM TO MAKE A JOINT STAEMENT OF STYLE. GIVING YOUR GUEST A WINDOW INTO YOUR SOUL. TELLING YOUR GUEST WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU’RE ALL ABOUT. DEFINING YOUR BRIDAL STYLE IS KEY TO CREATING A PERSONAL WEDDING. SO WHERE DO YOU START? >> I THINK THAT THE BEST WAY FOR HER TO CONCEPTUALIZE HER IDEA OF HER ENTIRE WEDDING IS TO REALLY CONSIDER HER AND HER GROOM. CONSIDER HOW DID THEY MEET? THE THINGS THAT THEY’VE DONE TOGETHER, VACATIONS THEY’VE TAKEN TOGETHER, PRETTY MUCH ANY ACTIVITIES THEY’VE DONE TOGETHER OR WHAT DESCRIBES THEM BEST, AND THEN TAKE IT FROM THERE. >>IT’S A COMBINATION OF ALL THE BRIDE AND GROOMS HISTORY, THE CULTURES, RELIGIOUS BACKGROUND, HOBBIES, CAREERS… I THINK EVERYDAY LIFE PLAYS AS MUCH A PART OF PEOPLES BRIDAL STYLE AS ANYTHING ELSE. SO ONCE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF BRIDE AND GROOM YOU ARE GOING TO BE? >> THERE’S YOUR ROMANTIC, THERE’S YOUR CLASSIC, THERE’S YOUR AVANTE GARDE, THERE’S YOUR MODERN, THERE’S YOUR WHIMSICAL, YOUR GLAMOROUS AND HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THAT AS A COUPLE?
  2. 2. >> WHEN PICKING YOUR STYLE, THE FIRST RULE IS DON’T SQUASH EACH OTHER, YOU’RE DOING THIS TOGETHER. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHEN TO COMPROMISE, WHO IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO? AND THEN YOU CAN DECIDE… >>AND DECIDING ON COLOR CAN HELP YOU TO EXPRESS YOUR SINCE OF STYLE. AND PERSONALITY. >>THE ORANGE BOUQUET IS REALLY A VERY CLASSIC BOUQUET, VERY CLASSIC FLOWERS, BUT ITS WITH A TWIST IS REVEALING OF A BRIDE WHO DOES HAVE A CLASSIC SENSIBILITY BUT LIKES TO PUSH THE ENVELOPE A LITTLE BIT. THE GREEN AND WHITE BOUQUET IS MADE OF ALL LOCAL PRODUCTS SO ITS VERY ENVIRONMENTALLY GREEN-MINDED BRIDE. ITS ALSO GOT A VERY FLUFFY ROMANTIC FEEL TO IT. THE PURPLISH ONE IS KIND OF A ROCK AND ROLL, KIND OF AN EDGIER BRIDE BUT STILL FEMININE, THE PINK DEFINITELY BRINGS IT OVER TO A MORE FEMININE LOOK. ITS GOT AN EXOTIC FEEL TO IT WITH ALL OF THOSE ORCHIDS, >>NOW ONCE YOU’VE SETTLED ON THE WHAT, HOW DO YOU USE THAT TO HELP YOU PLAN? >> THEN YOU MEET WITH ALL OF YOUR VENDORS, WHEN YOUR MEETING WITH THEM THE FIRST QUESTIONS THEY ARE GOING TO ASK YOU IS WHAT’S YOUR STYLE? WHAT KIND OF VIBE DO YOU WANT TO CREATE? AND SO YOU ARE ARMED WITH ALL THESE VOCABULARY WORDS. >>AND HOW CAN THESE WORDS ENHANCE THE EVENT EXPERIENCE? >> I THINK A LOT OF TIMES WHEN YOU GO TO THE WEDDING YOU MIGHT KNOW THE BRIDE REALLY WELL, OR KNOW THE GROOM REALLY WELL, BUT NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE OTHER ONE. AND SO ITS SO NICE TO SEE THOSE TYPES OF PERSONALITY QUIRKS AND BITS OF HISTORY AND SHARED CULTURAL ELEMENTS REVEALED THROUGH THE WEDDING. >> SO STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF AND YOUR PARTNER, AND YOUR JOINT STYLE WILL SHINE THROUGH MAKING YOUR CELEBRATION THAT MUCH MORE PERSONABLE AND MEMORABLE. FOR MORE IDEAS TO MAKE YOUR WEDDING UNIQUELY YOU, CHECK OUT IDEAS AND DECOR ON THE PLANNING PAGES OF GETMARRIED.COM. AND TO HELP KEEP TRACK OF ALL YOUR WEDDING DETAILS BE SURE TO USE OUR WEDDING PLANNING TOOLS. >>TRADITIONAL…. MODERN…..ROMANTIC… WHATEVER YOUR BRIDAL STYLE, ONE PLACE IT’S GONNA SHINE THROUGH IS IN YOUR WEDDING DRESS. BUT FOR MANY OF US GIRLS WHO ARE SELF CONSCIOUS ABOUT OUR BODIES, THE THOUGHT OF WEARING A WEDDING GOWN CAN KICK THAT FEELING UP A NOTCH. WHICH MAKES FINDING ONE THAT ENHANCES YOUR SHAPE ESSENTIAL. HERE’S THE SKINNY ON CHOOSING THE RIGHT DRESS FOR ALL YOUR CURVES.
  3. 3. BALLGOWN, MERMAID, A-LINE… THERE ARE SO MANY CHOICES WHEN IT COMES TO WEDDING GOWN STYLES! BUT KNOW THIS BRIDES -NOT EVERY ONE WORKS FOR EVERY BODY. LARGER BRIDES WANT TO MAXIMIZE THEIR CURVES AND MINIMIZE THEIR MID-SECTION. AND LANKY BRIDES WANT TO LOOK MORE SHAPELY. THE KEY, IS KNOWING YOUR FIGURE. >>ITS VERY IMPORTANT FOR A BRIDE TO KNOW HER BODY TYPE TO KNOW WHAT HER BEST FEATURE >>FORTUNATELY, WHETHER YOU’RE A PEAR SHAPE, ROUND, HOURGLASS, OR SOME COMBINATION, EACH BODY TYPE HAS A NUMBER OF STYLE OPTIONS. >>IF YOU HAVE FAIRLY LARGE ROUNDED HIPS OR BOTTOM PROBABLY A BEAUTIFUL A-LINE SHAPE OR DEFINITELY A DROP WAISTED DRESS OR EMPIRE WAISTED DRESS THAT FLOWS OUT TO AN A, THAT SKIMS THE HIP LINE >>CERTAIN STYLES ALSO ENHANCE THE CURVES OF SMALLER BRIDES. >>WITH THE SMALL GIRL ITS VERY EASY TO BE OVERPOWERED, SO A SMALL GIRL NEEDS TO HAVE VERY LITTLE AROUND HER FACE. THAT¹S WHY STRAPLESS DRESSES WORK WELL OR OFF THE SHOULDER SMALL-CAPPED SLEEVES.” >>SOME STYLES, LIKE A-LINE AND TEA-LENGTH, ARE CLASSICS THAT HIGHLIGHT ANY BRIDE’S ASSETS. >>THIS WEDDING GOWN FLATTERS ALMOST ANY KIND OF FIGURE. IT WORKS IF YOUR BUSTY OR NOT BUSTY AT ALL. IT WORKS IF YOU HAVE HIPS. IT GIVES YOU A REAL SHAPED WAIST WITH THE CORSET. THE WAY THIS ROUCHING IS DESIGNED WHERE IT COMES OUT FROM THE CENTER AND FLARES OUT HERE AND THEN COMES OUT HERE INTO THIS WONDERFUL ROUCHED SKIRT IT REALLY FLATTERS ALMOST ANY KIND OF FIGURE. >>SOME BRIDES WORRY ABOUT SO-CALLED “PROBLEM AREAS,” LIKE AN AMPLE BUSTLINE. BUT THE RIGHT NECKLINE CAN MINIMIZE CLEAVAGE, AND MAKE THOSE FEARS DISAPPEAR. >>FOR THAT TYPE OF BRIDE I ALWAYS RECOMMEND V-NECK LINE OR WITH THE STRAPS OR WITH CAP SLEEVES, JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DRESS IS VERY COMFORTABLE ON YOU AND YOU CAN DANCE AND GO CRAZY AND HAVE THE FUN. >>I THINK THAT STRAPLESS IS ALSO WONDERFUL BECAUSE WHAT A STRAPLESS DRESS DOES IS ALLOWS FOR A LOT OF SKIN TO BE SHOWN, WHICH KIND OF MINIMIZES BELIEVE IT OR NOT” >>AND IF YOU’RE SMALLER UP TOP? THE LOOK OF YOUR GOWN CAN GIVE YOU A BOOST. >> A LOT OF EMBROIDERY OR THE FLOWERS AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE IT IS NICE SIZE
  4. 4. >>NOW IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DOWNPLAY YOUR POSTERIOR… >>FIRST THINGS FIRST PLEASE DO NOT PUT A BOW BACK THERE. NO BOWS. PLEASE NO BOWS, BECAUSE THAT WILL ACCENT. >> THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT YOU FEEL GORGEOUS IN YOUR WEDDING GOWN. >> IT’S REALLY ABOUT THE WHOLE AURA OF WHAT THE DRESS FEELS LIKE ON HER, HOW GOOD SHE FEELS IN IT, WHAT IT MAKES HER FEEL LIKE, DOES IT FULFILL PART OF HER FANTASY. >>TO SEE AMAZING GOWNS MADE TO FLATTER ANY FIGURE, CHECK OUT THE GOWN GALLERY ON GET MARRIED.COM NEXT UP ON GET MARRIED… WE’VE GOT THE SCOOP ON THE WONDERLAND WEDDING OF SINGER ASHLEE SIMPSON AND HER FALLOUT BOY, PETE WENTZ… FROM THE MAN WHO MADE IT HAPPEN. YOUR WEDDING MAY BE DONE IN A DAY, BUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS WILL LAST A LIFETIME… WE’LL SHOW YOU SOME PERFECT POSES TO GO ON YOUR “MUST HAVE” SHOT LIST. STAY WITH US. HOLLYWOOD STARS AND ROCK ROYALTY HAVE THEIR OWN STYLE, AND IDEAS ABOUT HOW TO MAKE THEIR WEDDINGS UNIQUE... CELEBRITY FLORIST MARK HELD BRINGS THOSE IDEAS TO LIFE. ONE OF THOSE ROCKERS, ASHLEE SIMPSON HAD A HIT WITH “PIECES OF ME”, BUT SHE GAVE ALL OF HER HEART TO FALLOUT BOY PETE WENTZ, IN A WEDDING THAT MARK MADE FULL OF WONDERLAND WHIMSY. >> IT WAS THEIR IDEA AND THEIR IDEA ALONE TO DO THIS FANTASY RECEPTION. THEY ARE THE ONES THAT WANTED TO DO ALICE IN WONDERLAND. FOR THE WEDDING RECEPTION WE USED A LOT OF MAINLY RED FLOWERS. BLACK MAGIC ROSES AND ALL DIFFERENT KINDS OF ROSES AND RED INTUITION AND TRIED TO CREATE A LITERAL CRAZY TEA PARTY ON THE TABLE. THE CENTERPIECES FOR THE GUEST TABLES WERE THESE CRAZY CANDLE OPERAS THAT WERE OFF KILTER EVERYTHING WAS A LITTLE OFF, AND JUST A LITTLE ZANY FOR THE HEAD TABLE WE USED A MIXTURE OF DIFFERENT KINDS OF TRAYS SOME THAT WOU LD EVOKE A FEELING OF AN ENGLISH TEA, LIKE A SILVER TRAY AND THEN WE PAINTED SOME TRAYS BLACK TO ADD A LITTLE MORE SPICE TO THE MIX. WE USED A LOT OF DIFFERENT KINDS OF TEAPOTS. SOME WERE RUSTY TEAPOTS AND WE USED CHINA TEAPOTS AND CHINA CUPS. AND WE STACKED UP CUPS ON TOP OF CUPS AND WE FILLED THEM WITH ROSES. AND THEN INCORPORATED THE CANDLE OPERAS DOWN THE TABLE.
  5. 5. I THINK THE GUEST LOVED THE WEDDING I MEAN IT AS SOMETHING SO DIFFERENT, IT WAS A FANTASY AND IT WAS BEAUTIFULLY REALIZED IN EVERY DETAIL. I MEAN WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO GO TO A WEDDING LIKE THAT? >>FOR MORE SCOOP ON CELEBRITY WEDDINGS, HEAD TO THE REAL WEDDINGS PAGES OF GETMARRIED.COM >> YOU DON’T NEED A ROCK STAR TO MAKE YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY MUSIC MEMORABLE. WHETHER IT’S TRADITIONAL OR COMPLETELY UNIQUE, THE MUSIC STYLE YOU CHOOSE IS A TO THE ATMOSPHERE YOU’RE HOPING TO CREATE. WE SPOKE TO SOME ENTERTAINMENT EXPERTS ABOUT THE MUSIC OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR WALK DOWN THE AISLE. THE MUSIC YOU PLAY AT YOUR WEDDING PLAYS A LARGE ROLE IN CREATING THE ATMOSPHERE YOU ENVISION, SO WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR CEREMONY, ITS IMPORTANT TO FIND A TUNE THAT MOVES YOU EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY >> OPTIONS FOR CEREMONIES RUN FROM SOMETHING THAT’S AS SIMPLE AND ELEGANT LIKE A CLASSICAL GUITAR, AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE A CLASSICAL GUITAR AT AN AFTERNOON GARDEN WEDDING, I THINK IT’S SO ELEGANT AND SO SIMPLE. THEN YOU CAN DEVELOP IT A LITTLE BIT MORE, MAYBE GO WITH A STRING QUARTET OR A CLASSICAL ENSEMBLE, SOME OF THE TIME WE HAVE A SMALL ORCHESTRA PLAYING FOR THE CEREMONY WERE YOU’LL HAVE VIOLENS, BRASS, GUITAR FOR BRIDES GETTING MARRIED IN A CHURCH OR SYNAGOGUE, OR WHO JUST DESIRE A VERY TRADITIONAL WEDDING, THERE ARE CHOICES THAT ARE INSTANTLY RECOGNIZABLE AS WEDDING MUSIC. >> PACHELBEL’S CANON, OR BACH’S AIR ON A G STRING.I MEAN THEY’VE BEEN THE GO TO FOR RECOGNIZABLE CLASSICAL TUNES FOR QUITE SOMETIME. IF THERE’S PIPE ORGANS AT YOUR CHAPEL, THEN YOU HAVE TO GO FOR WAGNER’S BRIDAL CHORUS. IF IT’S A JEWISH CEREMONY, THEN THERE’S ONLY ONE SONG TO PLAY WHEN THE FOOT HITS THE GLASS AND THAT IS “ SIMULTOV AN MAZELTOV!” >>OR, NON-TRADITIONAL BRIDES CAN DELIGHT THEIR GUESTS BY WALKING DOWN THE AISLE TO CLASSIC TUNES, PLAYED WITH A MODERN TWIST. >>EVERYBODY KNOWS PACHELBEL’S CANON. IT GOES LIKE THIS (PLAYS MUSIC). WE TURN PACHELBEL INTO THIS (PLAYS MUSIC) THESE DAYS BRIDES ARE MAKING THEIR WEDDING MUSIC PERSONAL, WALKING DOWN THE AISLE TO A SONG THAT TRULY REFLECTS THEM. >> WE’RE PLAYING ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTS BUT WE’RE PLAYING THINGS THAT PEOPLE DON’T EXPECT TO HEAR ON THEM. FROM SWEET CHILD OF MINE TO KISS BY PRICE, WE’RE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE DIGNITY AND CLASS OF A STRING QUARTET
  6. 6. NOW IF YOU’RE WEDDING CEREMONY IS TAKING PLACE SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN A RELIGIOUS VENUE, FEEL FREE TO USE THE ORIGINAL CD BY THE ARTIST TO HEAR YOUR WEDDING SONG JUST AS THE ARTIST SINGS IT. >>WE’VE HAD PEOPLE WALK DOWN TO ISN’T SHE LOVELY, BY STEVIE WONDER, I’VE HAD PEOPLE WALK DOWN TO HERE THERE, EVERYWHERE, SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW, AND SOME OF THE BEST ONES I’VE SEEN FOR THE RECESSIONAL AS YOUR WALKING OUT, MY FAVORITE WAS, IT’S TOO LATE TO TURN BACK NOW. >> WE HAD A WEDDING JUST RECENTLY HERE IN NEW YORK WHERE WE PROVIDED A GOSPEL CHOIR THAT BURST DOWN THE AISLE RIGHT AFTER THE COUPLE WERE PRONOUNCED MAN AND WIFE. IT WAS COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED, MAYBE BECAUSE IT WAS A JEWISH CEREMONY, BUT IT GOT A PHENOMENAL RESPONSE >>ANOTHER UNEXPECTED IDEA? CHURCH BELLS WITHOUT A CHURCH! IF YOU DON’T HAVE A CHURCH SPIRE AT YOUR WEDDING VENUE, ALL YOU NEED IS A SOUND SYSTEM – CD’S WITH BELL TOLLS AND OTHER SOUNDS CAN ADD TO THE ATMOSPHERE OF YOUR DAY. WHETHER YOU WALK DOWN THE AISLE TO A TRADITIONAL SELECTION OR CHOOSE TO THINK COMPLETELY OUT OF THE BOX, YOUR CEREMONY MUSIC IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A VERY PERSONAL STATEMENT, SO SELECT A PIECE THAT’S MEANINGFUL TO YOU. >> TO GET EVEN MORE INFO ON MUSIC FOR YOUR CEREMONY, COCKTAIL HOUR, AND RECEPTION, CHECK OUT IDEAS AND DECOR ON THE PLANNING PAGES OF GETMARRIED.COM COMING UP ON GET MARRIED. WE’LL SHOW YOU THE TOP PICTURES YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER MUST TAKE ON YOUR WEDDING DAY. AND, I’LL SHARE ONE OF MY PERSONAL IDEAS TO MAKE YOUR BIG DAY “WEDDING CHIC”. THAT’S JUST AHEAD, ON GET MARRIED. >>WHEN IT COMES TO PHOTOGRAPHY, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT STYLES TO CHOOSE FROM, BUT ONLY A FEW MUST HAVES WHEN IT COMES TO THE PICTURES YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES. VO: NUMBER FIVE---GO FOR THE DETAILS >>PICTURES OF THE DETAILS, THINGS THAT THIS BRIDE AND GROOM HAVE SPENT ALL THIS TIME AND ENERGY INVESTING TO MAKE IT UNIQUELY THEIR OWN, SO IT’S NOT A COOKIE CUTTER WEDDING, MAKING SURE YOU GET ALL THOSE LITTLE DETAILS BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT GOING TO SEE IT THE DAY OF THEIR WEDDING BECAUSE THERE’S SO MUCH GOING ON.
  7. 7. >>VO: NUMBER FOUR---EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED >> A MORE UNEXPECTED SHOT WOULD BE WHERE THERE’S A GLANCE OR THERE’S A TOUCH THAT THEY DON’T KNOW THAT YOU’RE SHOOTING IT, BUT YOU KNOW, THEY’RE HAVING DINNER AND SHE TOUCHES HIS ARM, SOMETHING THAT WE’RE WATCHING FOR, THAT WHEN THEY LOOK BACK AT IT, IT’S GOING TO EVOKE, YOU KNOW, A LITTLE BIT OF A SENTIMENTAL, “I CAN’T BELIEVE,” WHAT I WAS FEELING AT THE MOMENT >>VO: NUMBER THREE--- NO BORING BACKGROUNDS >> SHOT THAT MIGHT BE ON A MUST HAVE LIST WOULD BE SHOTS WHERE YOU CAN FIND REALLY UNIQUE BACKGROUNDS. WHEN YOU HAVE A BRIDE AND GROOM STANDING IN FRONT OF IT, IT’S JUST THAT CONTRAST, IT’S JUST THE SAME WITH CONTRASTING COLORS THAT PEOPLE CHOOSE FOR THEIR WEDDINGS TO MAKE THINGS POP, PICKING SPOTS FOR TAKING PICTURES, SO A COLORED MURAL, SOMETHING THAT THEY’RE JUST GOING TO REALLY POP OFF OF WHEN SHE’S IN WHITE AND HE’S IN BLACK. >>VO: NUMBER TWO---DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL >> THE MOMENT THE BRIDE HAS WITH HER FATHER BEFORE SHE GOES DOWN EITHER THE AISLE OF A CHURCH OR GARDEN. PEAKING AROUND THE CORNER TO SEE ALL THEIR GUESTS SITTING THERE BEFORE SHE REALIZES SHE HAS TO WALK DOWN, OR THE WAY THEY LOOK AT EACH OTHER RIGHT BEFORE THEY’RE ABOUT TO WALK DOWN, IS ALWAYS REALLY SWEET. >>VO: NUMBER ONE---THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER >> THE SEND OFF, IF THERE’S A SEND OFF AT THE END, BECAUSE AGAIN THAT’S ANOTHER HIGHLY EMOTIONAL MOMENT WHEN THIS WHOLE DAY IS OVER, BUT THE REST OF THEIR LIFE IS BEGINNING. >>TO FIND GREAT PHOTOGRAPHERS AND OTHER FANTASTIC WEDDING PROFESSIONALS WHERE YOU LIVE, BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE LOCAL RESOURCES PAGES ON GETMARRIED.COM >>YOUR BOUQUET IS YOUR MAIN ACCESSORY AS YOU COME DOWN THE AISLE, AND YOU WANT IT TO BE BEAUTIFUL. BUT YOU DON’T WANT IT TO DISTRACT GUESTS FROM THE OVERALL IMPACT OF YOUR WEDDING DAY LOOK. IN MY BOOK “WEDDING CHIC” I’VE GOT GREAT TIPS TO HELP YOU DESIGN A FABULOUS BOUQUET. WHEN DESIGNING YOUR BOUQUET, START WITH THE BASICS. FIRST OFF, DECIDE THE SHAPE. IS IT GOING TO BE ROUND, IS IT GOING TO BE POMANDER, A NOSE GAY OR EVEN A CASCADE? THE OTHER THING TO CONSIDER IS COLOR. DO YOU WANT SPRING, SUMMER, WINTER, OR FALL TONES? DO YOU WANT TO MIX COLORS?
  8. 8. AND IF YOU ARE WEARING A ALL WHITE DRESS, DON’T CARRY AN ALL WHITE BOUQUET. USE SOME OTHER TONES SUCH AS AN IVORY OR A CHAMPAGNE TO ADD DIMENSION AND TEXTURE. BESIDES FLOWERS, YOU CAN USE FRUIT AND OTHER EMBELLISHMENTS SUCH AS BEADS, RIBBONS, OR BOWS, TO MAKE YOUR BOUQUET UNIQUE AND ELEGANT AND DON’T FORGET -- THE BACK OF THE BOUQUET IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE FRONT. MAKE SURE THAT IT’S BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED WITH RIBBON, MOST IMPORTANTLY BRIDES -- LISTEN TO ME CAREFULLY HERE -- HOLD YOUR BOUQUET AS LOW AS POSSIBLE AS YOU COME DOWN THE AISLE. ITS GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK TALLER AND THINNER, AND THAT’S GOING TO MAKE YOU LOOK MORE CONFIDENT AND EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL.
