Blurb About It!

A couple of months ago Masterpiece Weddings did a blog post on Blurb. It was love at first sight. Blurb is an online photo album company that is filled with creative ideas at affordable prices. It gives you the option of creating your own album or allowing one of their experts to construct it for you. For the do-it-yourself bride, the software is incredibly user friendly.

After returning from a trip to Europe I created four duplicate books that I gave to my traveling friends. They loved it. The book had a glossy finish and captions so we will never forget those days.

I recommend creating your guest book on Blurb. Its a great way to cut prices on your wedding album as well. Do keep in mind that most professional photographers don't give out the images and normally a photo album is required in their package.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
