When it comes to weddings, all everybody thinks of is staying budget savvy, unless blue blood runs through your veins or your dad is another Donald Trump. The same applies to filming wedding videos, which I think is not really worth saving up on. Not to mention, cheap can be risky if you are talking about your wedding video.

World of Wedding Industry in Nottingham

by aiowedding on March 6, 2014

Not many years ago weddings used to be an intimate affair between the bride, groom, their families and friends. But since the beginning of the new millennium weddings have become a huge and profitable industry for many. Let’s catch a glimpse of the wedding industry
Wedding day is the most important day for every bride and groom. With weddings becoming more of a lavish affair, one aspect of it which needs to be understood is the world of the wedding industry. The industry is growing by the day given that months of planning by professionals today go into making the day a success. So it is not only about making the most important day of the lives of a bride and groom a success, but weddings are also about an associated industry which has many facets to it. In the US, the wedding industry is worth $40 billion whereas in UK it is worth $11 billion and is an ever growing one.
As we look into a wedding ceremony we can see that it has many aspects to it, which are as follows:
Wedding dress and accessories: This includes the bride’s dress and the groom’s tuxedo or suit, their engagement ring and wedding bands. Even though these are best left to professional designers, the idea and concepts take months of planning especially if it’s a themed wedding.
Bachelor/bachelorette party: These pre-wedding parties have been a part of the weddings for at least the past 50-60 years. The groom and the bride enjoy the last day of their ‘single’ life with close friends. And as tradition only friends pay for all of the arrangements.
Wedding ceremony: As the wedding industry is evolving the ceremony is becoming more and more extravagant. Including the priest/minister/rabbi, music and invitations, a couple on an average spends around $4000-$5000.
Reception style and pattern depends on the culture and region. But on a broad prospect it is much more informal than the formal wedding ceremony.
Location: The location of the wedding and the reception depends on culture, climate, and family tradition and mainly on the financial status of the couple. It may be fancy reception hall or a beach side or sometimes even a castle. Eventually it is all about how deep your pocket is. Decoration of the ceremony location and reception area is a major factor contributing to the expenditure. For all this a bride and groom may spend up to $8000-$10000.

People who may have run out of ideas, need not worry as there will be plenty of people offering their personal experiences. Moreover, an online search also throws open plenty of alternatives. However, the basic step is to do all the simple things right. One must also try to keep it simple. Below mentioned are certain ideas, which can add sparkle to any wedding.

Look for a theme:

A theme is probably one of the easiest options for someone planning entertainment for a wedding. There are plenty of options available. One can look for a village theme to give it a countryside feeling. A movie buff can try out a Hollywood theme, where guests can enter dressed up as movie stars. This certainly makes the whole feel special.

The celebrity guest concept:

People on the look for movie themes can always ponder over the idea of a celebrity guest. Hiring celebrities is certainly a costly affair. However, one can always ponder over the option of a lookalike. These people certainly add sparkle to the event. People tend to remember these occasions more than any other normal wedding.
The outdoor events add to the excitement levels:

Wedding is an indoor affair, but someone in search of entertainment for a wedding certainly should never ignore the outdoors. Games such as outdoor skittles, giant snakes and ladders add to the fun levels at any event. These games are perfect for the interior also.

Recently I came across Brideself while doing some of my dreaming.

Platinum is often called the “King of Metals” as it has a special allure because it is rare, enduring, and pure. However, not all platinum is equal and not all platinum craftsmanship is the similar. Wedding rings and engagement rings are symbols of unity. Wedding rings and engagement rings are traditionally worn on the third finger of the left hand because it was believed that the left hand had a special vein, “the vein of love”, that ran directly to the wearers heart. Wedding rings are now more than just a piece of jewellery. Wedding rings symbolize circles of perfection, unity with no beginning and no end. There is perhaps no greater symbol and expression of love, than with the perfect set of his and her wedding rings. Not all wedding rings and diamond ring settings are created equal.

In theory, a carat can be defined as a unit of weight for gemstones.

One carat equals 1/5 of a gram.

Carats are partitioned into 100 units that are termed points. One carat is divided into 100 points. One should always remember that a carat is a unit of weight and not size.

Though, the clarity and colour of a diamond are usually rated, scales are not uniform. There is always some doubt regarding the clarity and colour of a diamond. That’s why it is worthwhile to have an idea as to how scale and grade signify the colour or clarity of the diamond while one is considering buying them.

A diamond can be termed as perfect if it satisfies one condition. There should be no visible surface in the diamond when viewed under 10-power magnification by a skilled diamond grader.

How to Choose a Wedding Photographer

  • Some people opt for friends to take photographs during the wedding so that they can cut down on the costs. But one must keep in mind that photography is not only about clicking a photo but also about the right angle, object of focus, lighting, good timing which only professional photographers are experts at with years of experience.
