It’s a debatable topic. Is booking a wedding videographer really worth it, especially for a bride on a budget?

My answer is a resounding, “YES!

While it’s fairly generic wedding advice, there is no denying that the day will go by in a flash. Not only is it impossible to remember every tiny, well-planned detail of your wedding day, but it is also impossible to be involved in every aspect of your big day. Your number one priority on your wedding day should be having the time of your life!

There is no need to stress yourself out over trying to embed each moment into your memory. Having a wedding video is the perfect way to relive your favorite moments and take a glimpse into the moments you missed. The way I think of it, pictures capture the essence, while video captures the heart of your wedding day. Nothing can compare to hearing the music of your first dance or the laughter of your guests.

Just like hiring a wedding photographer, it’s important to build a relationship with your videographer before your wedding day. Shooting a “Love Story” video is the perfect way to become comfortable with one another and ensure that your wedding day will run smoothly.

Bride Blogger Casey - Choosing the right China Pattern, V4

China selection shouldn’t be taken too seriously – have fun, but remember that it’s an investment and something that you will likely have and use for the rest of your life. (No pressure there, right?)

I had a lot of fun with my fiance while selecting the china for our registry. We have very similar tastes and have already committed to a color scheme in our home – neutrals of grey, blue and beige. Naturally, we selected a china pattern featuring white, light grey, light blue and an accent of silver as a trim. We went with very classic and timeless pieces, although I was very tempted by a bold, striped pattern by Kate Spade! When it comes down to it, it’s your choice and it should represent your personality as a couple – if you even choose to register for a formal china pattern at all.

Here are a few things that we kept in mind before committing to our final choice:

  • If you’re worried about your pattern style looking dated in 10 years, pick a neutral set and register for fun accent items to brighten up your dinner table. Think about getting a trendy vase, some eye-popping chargers or fun serving dishes.
  • Take into consideration how food will look on the plates. For instance, a bright green floral pattern might not look as appealing if you frequently serve Italian food on special occasions.
  • Pay attention to the care instructions. If you prefer minimal care and maintenance, consider a more durable set without any metallic trimming.
  • Are you willing to commit to a dining room color scheme now? If not, opt for ivory or white place settings. Don’t feel pressured to design your dining room around your china if you’re not sure.
  • Don’t be afraid to mix-and-match. The only way to tell if something will work and complement each other is to try!
