A Site for Your Eyes

Wedding websites are not only a great way to keep your guests and wedding party aware of your journey but are also great for posting wedding photos and videos, posting hotel information, uploading biographies and photos of the wedding party, listing your wedding vendors, posting registries, sending invitations and best of all allowing your guests to RSVP virtually so you’ll never miss a count!

Feature your Future

Wed Pics Site

Having a wedding site means having all your ideas, contacts and timelines in one place rather than on different platforms. Certain wedding websites include features such as wedding checklists, budgeters, payment records, a countdown to the big day and seating chart organizer.

Do’s and Dont’s

Above all, do ensure that your site represents you as a couple

Do keep it well organized as possible, making it user-friendly. No guest truly wants to spend hours trying to figure out where to RSVP or where to find your registry.

Do not list your site on your wedding invitations, it’s not something you’re advertising its a compilation of resources to help you plan your big day.

Even if you send out a virtual RSVP option, do make sure to include a response card as part of your physical invitations.

Do keep your site active after the wedding, so guests can go back and retrieve photos, write comments and share photos they might have of your special day.

8 Attributes of a WS University DIY Bride

Getting a 4.0 in DIY-ing comes with a few core attributes every bride attending Wedding Salon University will posses by graduation.

1. Have a Positive Attitude

No matter how stressful the process, remember that it’s all working towards your special day and no matter what, it’s going to be okay. This attribute is one that will get you through any situation in your process.

2.Know your Goal Whether you want a themed wedding, princess fairy tale or traditional wedding, be clear about your goal. Take Tat’s Tips on this one: Identify your personal style in creating the design for the wedding. Remember, this is the one day that it’s o.k for it to be all about you.

3.Be Flexible

Being flexible is key to successful DIY-ing, being flexible not only with your budget (don’t forget that according to the poll conducted by The Knot the average person in the United States spends roughly $194 per wedding guest and an average $28,427 on the overall wedding) but also being flexible with your ideas and vision. Be prepared to switch to plan B at any moment in the planning process.

4.Be Knowledgeable Much like in college, as a full-time bride you should have knowledge and understanding about the academic (DIY-ing) policies and deadlines. This means not procrastinating on things such as wedding invitations, contacting vendors and beauty trials in advance. Bridal shows such as Wedding Salon’s Luxury Bridal shows can make brides more knowledgeable about vendor options, locations and costs.

5.Communicate Until the End Having to tell a friend she isn’t a bridesmaid isn’t always easy but in this case, honest, open and direct communication is key. Let your friend know in person not by text or social media and have a concise reason for not being able to include them.

6.Be Organized
Create a timetable or timeline of the tasks to be accomplished that way you’ll never miss a deadline. Apps such as WeddingHappy and Wedding Budget Calculator make staying on top of things as easy as checking your instagram.

7.Be Independent (When needed)

This doesn’t mean you have to do everything on your own, however if there are tasks or details you want done right away, there’s no better person to do it than yourself since no one know you, better than you! This also means that to be a successful DIY bride you should know when and how to seek help.


8.Stay Committed to your Program You’ve already said yes to making the biggest commitment of your life, now its time to stay committed to your goals, vision, and deadlines to ensure that you make it to graduation day – your wedding day stress free and feeling fully accomplished as a DIY bride.

4 Wedding Planning Myths Busted at Wedding Salon NY 2015

New York, NY (November 16, 2015) – Over a fifteen hundred New Yorker’s attended Wedding Salon at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Monday to find top industry resources for their upcoming nuptials. Guests were stunned by the fashion forward, modern and unique wedding displays, along with some significant wedding myth busters.

1. DIY is the Only Option for Rustic Chic Weddings

Often time couples associate rustic chic wedding with a lot of DIY work. The myth has officially been busted. Many vendors such as DJars Cookie Co. are offering services, visual elements, and products for rustic chic weddings that will save your weekends from being consumed by scissors, thread, and mason jars.

One bride even said “I booked my photo booth, entertainment company and makeup artist today. And, I have a few options for flowers and a honeymoon! It was really easy to see what these vendors are capable of with such interactive displays.”

3. Orange is the New Black

While traditional pinks, lavenders and whites were presented at the showcase, it was easy to spot all of the vibrant warm tones. Vendors showcased how to excite a color scheme with a pop of a bright color. The popularity of orange in decorations and flowers marks orange as the new cream.

4. You Have to Know What You Want

Sometimes you just don’t know what you want until you see it in person. According to our couples, they ended up discovering new ideas and elements for their wedding that they had no idea they even wanted.
