A pretty dress hanger not only adds a special touch to your wedding day but also looks great in photos! Make your own with a simple wooden hanger and a wood burning pen that can be bought at a craft store.

Elizabeth Medina captured this beautiful Mexico wedding at the Moon Palace Resort. Check out the Trash the Dress photo session the day after! For more photos go to her blog.

I love the sweet and pretty casualness of these bridesmaid outfits. Apparently the skirts are from Urban Outfitters and were only $10! The girls chose their own top and shoes. Its a great idea for keeping a cohesive feel to your bridal party but still letting each girl put some of her own style into her outfit. If your wedding is going to be be more formal, start with a more formal skirt.

This is a very sweet and well-thought out proposal! The groom says about his proposal “Collaborated with multiple artists to create a secret street art “tour”, leading up to the last piece where I popped the question. Each piece was symbolic of a season in our relationship.” For more photos or to like this video go here.

I love the glamourous drama these big flower pieces lend to these bridal looks. Photos by Chris Nicholls.

Since there were no credits to be found for these blooms, I started looking around for replacements and found these beauties….

Or make these ones yourself! Directions at Martha Stewart Weddings

If you have started looking at wedding photography packages, then you know albums can cost more than a pretty penny. It’s usually for good reasons too.

Generally, the albums photographers sell you are:

– heirloom quality made with archival products and printed on archival paper.
– custom-made to your wishes.
– hand-mounted and hand-bound.
– covered in fine leather.
– time-consuming for your photographer to design. Generally, photographers will design the layout and take care of color correction for printing.

If you’re thinking of skipping on an album just because of the cost, consider instead getting a book from Pinhole Press! A simple, press-printed book, with 96 images will cost you around $64.99. They offer templates to help you do the layouts yourself. While it’s not a fancy photo album, it is a tangible way of showing off your photos and a whole lot nicer than posting them all to Facebook!
