What is actually difficult when you are creating your wedding blog is deciding what you should write. Actually, you can blog about everything you encounter when you are planning for your wedding. This is the essence of starting your wedding blog. You will be trying to share all the emotions when you are planning for the event. In fact, one of the advantages of creating a wedding blog is that you can use the blog as a platform to inform your guests regarding the wedding plan. It is even more important if you are planning for a destination wedding since your guests may need more information about the destination. In the case of a destination wedding, you may also need to prepare the air tickets for your guests. Again, you will be using your wedding blog as a platform to gather information about that.

Besides, you may also give your guests some useful information such as points of interest and transportation in the destination. Your guests will find your blog very useful if you can do so. Your wedding blog is not only for your guests to read. People who are surfing on the web can also read it. Of course this will include all other couples. You will be sharing your experience of wedding planning in your blog with all other brides and grooms. You can also read the wedding blogs of other couples so that you can learn from them. The point here is that no one will be experienced in wedding planning unless you are a wedding planner yourself. As a result, it will be a good idea for couples to learn from one another. From the above you should probably know what you should write in your wedding blog. Have you started your blog yet? If not, you should do it as soon as possible so that you can share more with the others.
Blogs have skyrocketed in popularity, with CEOs, teenagers, and even grandmothers blogging about their lives and interests. Why not write a wedding invitation blog to connect with your guests, keeping everyone updated on your wedding progress? Even after the wedding bells have tolled, you will have a lovely “diary” of all the moments and decisions leading up to your special day. Why Write a Wedding Invitation Blog Getting married is one of the most important life events you will experience, and keeping track of all the moments is equally important. One way to chronicle your wedding planning process is to start a wedding invitation blog. You should begin this prior to sending out your wedding invitations, perhaps closer to sending save the date announcements, so that guests can access it for travel information and keep up with your wedding plans as well. Another great reason to write a wedding invitation blog is if you are planning a destination wedding or if you expect mostly out of town guests. For a destination wedding, it is a great idea to upload photos of your wedding destination, as well as accommodation and activity information. For a wedding where you expect many out of town guests to attend, a wedding invitation blog can serve much the same purpose and showcase your area, wedding location, as well as provide practical travel details in an easily accessible format. By including links to travel information on your wedding blog, you can forego enclosing this information in your wedding invitation. This will ostensibly cut down on cost and postage – just don’t forget to include your blog URL in the invitation with a note to guests regarding it. Wedding Invitation Blog Tips and Ideas A blog is not usually a one-sided journal, but an ongoing conversation. Invite your guests to comment and respond, creating a dialogue that keeps you engaged with your guests. You should also upload photos of you and your fiancé. You could display engagement photos, as well as photograph your planning trials and tribulations. Take photos of the wedding party trying on tuxes and dresses for your blog photo album. Include photos from your bridal shower so guests who were unable to attend can still enjoy seeing you. Don’t forget about short video clips. If you own a video camera and upload small scenes from various bridal events, your guests will feel included in the process. If you are hosting a destination wedding, get guests excited by including beautiful photos from your destination. If you make a trip to both visit and finalize wedding plans, document this on your wedding invitation blog through photos and video clips. You might even succeed in convincing a few waffling guests to make their plans to attend. Whether you go all out and include numerous photos and video clips or keep it simple with pertinent travel and wedding information, your guests will enjoy participating in your progress to the aisle, and your blog will give you an invaluable keepsake.
One of the funniest and most outrageous comedies of 2005, Wedding Crashers will have you falling out of your chair with laughter. Directed by the underrated David Dobkin, the film features now veteran Hollywood funny men Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in their first film together as the central headliners. TV writers Steve Faber and Bob Fisher author the screenplay, a breakout hit for both, that has to be considered one of the best written comedies of the year. Of course, it helps to have the perfect comic duo delivering the lines, and Wedding Crashers offers just that. The onscreen personas of Vaughn and Wilson compliment each other extremely well, providing a flux between the laid back approach of Wilson and the fast talking banter of Vaughn.
Wedding Crashers follows the lives of two business partners and best friends, John Beckwith (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy Grey (Vince Vaughn). Making their living as divorce counselors, they often mediate between warring couples. But in reality, neither man is married himself. They are, however, loyally dedicated to a set of principles: the wedding crasher rules. Adhering to a specific set of intricately engineered rules for crashing weddings, John and Jeremy share a common passion for wedding receptions and carefree bridesmaids.
When the new wedding season arrives, the two set out in earnest to schmooze with relatives, deliver masterful toasts, and conquer as many beautiful women as possible. No race, religion, or social caste is left untouched by their elite wedding crashing skills. But as the wedding season comes to a close with the ultimate crescendo, the wedding of Treasury Secretary William Cleary’s (Christopher Walken) daughter, the duo’s perfectly laid plans go awry. While chasing after the Secretary’s remaining two daughters, Claire (Rachel McAdams) and Gloria (Isla Fisher), the unthinkable occurs. John breaks a rule by harboring genuine feelings for Claire. Things are further exacerbated when John breaks another rule and accepts an invitation to spend the weekend with the Cleary family so he can get closer to Claire. Masquerading as distant relatives, John must fend off the advances of Claire’s mother Kathleen (Jane Seymour) while also attempting to eliminate Claire’s pompous boyfriend Zach (Bradley Cooper). Meanwhile, Jeremy is tortured by an extended weekend with the clingy and borderline insane Gloria and her crazy brother Todd (Keir O’Donnell). As John gets closer to falling in love with Claire, Zach gets closer to blowing the lid off their wedding crasher conspiracy…
Utterly hilarious in every way, Wedding Crashers features some of the funniest movie scenes of 2005. A brief appearance by Will Ferrell who plays the role of Chazz Reinhold, one of the original wedding crashers, makes the film doubly hilarious. Apparently, Chazz has discovered that grieving women at funerals are easier to pick up than bridesmaids. So, of course, he turns to funeral crashing. The comic sequence where Vince Vaughn gets demolished playing football is ancient slapstick, but hilarious nonetheless. Isla Fisher can be annoying at times, but her character is so ridiculously insane that it become funny to watch her after a while, and some of the pick-up lines and wedding crasher techniques are just as entertaining. Overall, Wedding Crashers is a film you’ll probably want to watch more than once. If anything, just to catch the laughs you missed the first time around…
One of the most controversial weddings between celebrities is without a doubt the one between Ashton Kutcher now 33 years old and Demi More now 48 years old. They got married secretly on the 24th of September 2005 in Beverly Hills, they had a traditional Kabala Wedding. The wedding took place around 10PM and the ceremony was animated by Rabbi Eitan Yardeni. The tributes where given by Demi’s daughter under the Chuppah. At that time Ashton was 28 years young, making Demi 43 years old. One of the main guests at the wedding was Demi’s ex husband; Bruce Willis. Approximately another 100 friends and family members were also present; quite a turnout! Some of the big names were: Lucy Lui, Soleil Moon Frye, Jason Goldberg, Wilmer Valderrama (Ashton’s best friend and one of the stars of the hit-show That 70s Show) and, of course, Demi’s three daughters.
Their honeymoon served a double purpose; it was their honeymoon first and foremost.However, it was also an opportunity for Demi to shoot a commercial for Freixenet (A Spanish sparkling Wine). The honeymoon took place in Barcelona, Spain, a vibrant city full of interesting styles and culture.
Demi’s three daughter, Rumer Glenn Willis (1988), Scout LaReu Willis (1991) and Tallulah Belle Willis (1994) are all Bruce Willis’s daughters too. Ashton has no kids but has an amazing relationship with Demi’s and Bruce’s children. Bruce has stated many times that he is very happy and pleased with this. He doesn’t think there is anything wrong with being friends with his ex-wife and her new husband.
No doubt that with the huge age gap lots of rumours started, some of those rumours where that they had an open marriage or that they were cheating on each other. Demi and Ashton met in 2003 at a casual dinner, they talked all night long after meeting and finally started dating in May 2003. Although some still frown on such a large age gap, it is clear that in this case; age is just a number.
Ashton and Demi have been married for almost 6 years now, we wish them all the best of luck!!!
Money is the root to all evil. Most of the time, money issue is the root to married couple’s worries.
Before married, our finance matters do not overlap. I took charge of mine, she took charge of hers.
After married, we have to plan for our family. There are other issues to look into such as saving part of our salary, having joint account, saving for a new flat and for our children.
Looking at all these commitments, we seriously have to sit down and discuss our financial road map.
Wedding planning is a mega-project. It not only take up lots of energy, man-power but also lots of financial resources.
Those wedding couples who have average salaries and have been saving for a few years for their weddings, may find their bank account completely dried up by the end of their weddings.
I have shared earlier planning a wedding does not start after proposal. It comes way before proposal. I took two years to save up for my wedding before I popped the question to my wife on wedding proposal day.
I find that one needs to be financial savvy to save up for wedding. Some who had much better salary will park aside part of their money each month. Others may take up tuition and save up what they have earned. The rest who are even smarter invested what they have saved and their money pond grows bigger.
I know there are some friends of mine never got married even though they wanted to as they have no idea where their money has gone to.
If expenditure is not tracked well, there is no way to save up.
5 things we find helpful for our finance,
1. Discuss how much we are going to save per month and stick to it
2. Plan how much we need to save up
3. Plan by when we need to save up that amount
4. Plan how we can reach our goal
5. Write down the plans and goals on a piece of paper and stick somewhere we can see everyday
Girls have been known to have a folder of unique wedding ideas that they have clipped and collected for years until their big day finally arrives. Some people have a vague idea of what they would like their wedding to be like and leave the nitty gritty to a wedding planner. Others plan out every minute detail themselves and have quite a few wedding favor ideas to choose from well in advance.
Regardless of which category you fall in, ideas for wedding favors can range from the tacky to the treasured. Contrary to what you might think, it is not just how big a budget you have that determines how good your wedding favor idea will be. A little homework, a little patience and a lot of creativity (original or borrowed) are the ingredients in the recipe to a great wedding favor idea.
Extremely lovey-dovey wedding favors are not a good idea as what you feel for your spouse (right now) may not really interest 200 people a few weeks later. Leave all the mushy sentimental poems and love songs for your own exchange; give people something they would like.
People spend money to attend a wedding and while they are not in it to make money, they would at least like to leave with a small trinket of the wedding that looks like it has thought put in to it; not just a crate full of standardized mint tins that they could have bought from the gas station on the way back home. Do not make yourself look cheap by making your guests feel uncared for. Just like you take pains in seeing to the dress, the décor and the food, look through several wedding favor ideas online an in bridal magazines and something just might click.
Classic yet Predictable Favors
The candied almonds wrapped in net, the personalized Hershey’s kiss and the monogrammed candles are all sweet ideas, but if anyone has ever been to a wedding before yours, they have seen them all. However, you do not need to go over budget to come up with a good wedding favor idea. Take the classic and put a twist on it.
Instead of the famous Hershey’s kiss, opt for personalized M&M’s in the color of your wedding; they even put your name and wedding date on the candy. Instead of the monogrammed candle, add a candle holder so that even after your candle burns out, your guests can make use of it.
Another way you can make your wedding favor idea have a longer shelf life is not to include anything perishable or consumable. If you really want your guests to be able to keep the favor, opt for non-perishable items such as pens and frames as opposed to flowers and sweets.
The best wedding favor idea is to tie it to the theme of your wedding. If you got married on the beach, consider a pair of flip fop fridge magnets or palm tree salt and pepper shakers. The wedding favor ideas do not have to scream wedding and they do not have to be white, silver or pastel. They have to be something that looks interesting and people can keep for a while.
So while a flip flop magnet may not say Amanda Weds Jason, it is something your guests can look at everyday and think about you if you are close to them. If you are not that close to begin with, any favor will any ways be handed to the kids as a Happy Meal toy when they are picked up from the sitters!
If you have a wedding photography or digital photography blog, getting free targeted traffic is heavily based on where you are sitting on the SERP’s listings. In other words if you type in your keywords that you are campaigning for on Google, have a look to see where you are ranked.
Trying to improve your rankings on Google is known as Search engine optimisation or SEO. Google ranks websites based on the external backlinks pointing to a given site and is also determined by the quality of the link and its relevance.
The higher up you are on the search display the higher the page rank and the more traffic you will receive for that particular keyword.

There are two types of tags implemented on the blogs in the source section. They are known as Nofollow and Dofollow! Google basically ranks a site by the quality of the Dofollow links that are pointing to your website.
NoFollow Blog Links!
Blog commenting on NOFOLLOW tages have ZERO effect on Search Engine rankings, and is a complete waste of time in terms of SEO.
Where Can You Find Dofollow Blogs!
A Quick method to find these blogs is by placing the keywords “Dofollow Wedding Blogs” in the Google search box. You will find hundreds of blogs that have these tags implemented on their sites. There are also software tools that can do the work for you when it comes to finding these Dofollow blogs.
A word of warning, Google has changed its laws and can penalise blog owners for spamming sites to increase their page ranks via automated means. So, build your links naturally over time rather than trying to get 1000 links pointing to your site in a week.
To check if a blog has enabled the Dofollow tags, Mozilla firefox has a great SEO plugin which can easily find the tags for you. Do a search on the Mozilla Firefox add on for “Quick Search Status” and install the plugin.
You will get knocked of your page rank faster that you got there! Earning respect from Google is by building your keyword campaign naturally. Avoid spamming blog sites, implement different URL’s when commenting to allow for deeper linking, indexing and of course making the process natural and in compliance with Google’s stringent rules.
BUT since many people used this system to post spam, most blogs have inserted the NOFOLLOW tag to their commenting systems, which tells Google and the other search engines to ignore the link. So keep it natural and don’t spam!

Spring is the perfect time of the year when most marriages take place which is why it is regarded as a special time or the time of renewal and rebirth. If you are planning for spring wedding, consider about the important and favorite parts of the season. For example, if there are crocuses poking up through snow, this is an indication that you should fix a date early in the season. Similarly, emerging sunshine suggests that you can choose the bright colors and probably the month of May. Here are a few important spring wedding ideas for you.
Choosing the suitable time for the wedding
If you are going to arrange the marriage in a church, you may ask them to have their Easter decorations. By doing so, you can save some money. On the other hand, you will likely to get some days unavailable for the wedding since they will be doing their holiday prep. In general, vendors and sites are more available in the spring than in the summer.
Choosing spring wedding attire
Majority of the wedding dresses are made for a spring wedding. You should choose a perfect dress that is light, airy and eye-catching. For example, sleeveless tops are not suitable for winter and large skirts can be too warm for the summer. Try purchasing a versatile dress pair that would suit perfectly for the spring wedding. Most of the modern weddings are going for a hint of color such as a baby blue sash, a total hint of pink or light embroidery with perfect colors. These touches are perfect for a spring wedding.
Choosing the spring wedding menu
In spring, you will most possibly avail some young vegetables such as baby asparagus, baby carrots, new potatoes, haricots verts and sugar snap peas. Fruits like strawberry and rhubarb are pretty sweet and delicious in this season. So you should include them in your wedding meals. You may also add phyllo dough cups with mousse or custard with strawberries.
Talking about the spring wedding cake, you can choose a tiered white cake topped with flowers. Layers of spiced carrot cake or light white cake sweetened with flavorful berries and lemon can add a special spring touch.
Spring wedding decorations
If you are a little hesitant about the color combination, you can choose a combination of preppy pink and green colors. This constitutes a perfect color combination for a fresh and beautiful spring wedding. Accent your tables with polka-dot and ribbons, and arrange alternating green and pink chairs. If it is an outdoor wedding, you should ask your guests to throw rose petals rather than rice. Releasing butterflies is another good option too.
Spring wedding favors
You may give favors of bulbs or seed packets. Giving birdhouses is another great favor since it is inexpensive, easily available and works tremendously.
