Engagement Picture Ideas

The engagement picture has changed drastically over the last ten years.  At one time it was exclusive to the pros. If you wanted a “good” picture you needed to visit a studio and ended up with a cookie cutter print, not to mention a hole in your wallet. With the excel of the digital camera and more specifically the DSLR, the engagement photo is only limited by your imagination. The process has left the studio and can really be a work of art. Even though the pros still tend to have a way with the camera, you can make art of your own with a simple digital camera and a tripod (or friend with free time). Here are a few inspirational photos that we have collected on our Facebook account. Check back regularly for new ideas. Enjoy!

How to Include Your Pets in your Wedding

Weddings these days have taken a turn from traditional to modern and unique with features like unity sand frames instead of the unity candle, bold and bright wedding colors, even including your pets in your wedding. This may be difficult if you are having your wedding at a very formal location, or if your pet is the not the most well-behaved. However, if your pet is well-behaved and allowed at the ceremony, they can be included in your big day.
Tuxedo Dog Collars
One of the most popular ways to include pets in a wedding is as the ring bearer or best “dog.” Here at Daisy-Days.com, we have just what you need to make it happen, including tuxedo dog collars, dog ring bearer pillows, dog wedding bandanas and more. Let your four-legged best friend carry the wedding rings down the aisle, or stand by your side as you marry your soul mate.

Another way to include your pet is to have the officiant mention your pets in the ceremony, or you both can mention them in your vows. If you don’t want them in the ceremony, you can always include your pets Dog Ring Bearer Pillowfor an adorable wedding photo op before the reception. If your wedding reception is outdoors or pet friendly, you can even allow them at the reception. Just make sure you have a friend babysit the dog and take him/her home at the end of the night, as not to disturb your celebrating.

No matter where your ceremony is or how well-trained your pet is, you will be able to find a loving way to include them into your big day. Let’s be honest, our pets are like our children, so be sure to include them in the biggest day of your life, your wedding day. Don’t forget to shop Daisy-days.com to make sure they are dressed for the occasion with a pet tuxedo and a dog ring bearer pillow.

How to Make Your Small Wedding Extra Special

With the economy still suffering in the United States and unemployment rates barely budging, it’s hard to afford even the average American wedding these days. The average cost of a wedding is around $25,000, ranging higher or lower depending on your specific location. Even at that rate, it’s hard to imagine spending that type of money on your big day. It may be once in a lifetime, but that twenty some thousand dollars can pay off a lot of debt, help buy that new car you need or put that helpful down payment on your home. With this said, many couples are choosing smaller weddings, even elopements for their big day.

Whether you are having a large wedding of 300 plus guests, or a small ceremony with only close friends and family members, there are still many ways in which Daisy-Days.com can help to make your wedding day extra special. For a small wedding, however, you must be creative in the ways you allocate your budget across the many costs. The difficulty is that you don’t want your wedding day to be average or boring, just because it’s small. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! We have a number of ways you can make your small wedding extra special.

Small Wedding

Choose only parts of the ceremony that mean something to you and your fiancé. Skip the flower girl and ring bearer but use a unity sand ceremony or memorial candles for those who are deceased. Choose a printable wedding invitation kit to keep your budget intact, but still following a traditional wedding. Splurge on favors and wedding party gifts since there are less guests and it allows you to give more meaningful and long-lasting gifts. Use a personalized cake topper, champagne glasses and beautiful centerpieces, but cut out unnecessary items like place cards, cake serving sets and bubbles or sparklers.

You can still make your big day what you always wanted, special and memorable, regardless of the number of guests. Just remember to splurge on the important things and cut corners on the rest and your day will still be a day to remember for all involved. Shop Daisy-Days.com for a wide selection of wedding invitations, favors, decoration, reception and ceremony needs, and much more!

Ideas for Eco-friendly Wedding Decoration

Being eco-friendly has become an important aspect in many parts of our lives, so why not in our weddings as well. We already use reusable grocery bags, have electric cars and recycled paper products, so why not have eco-friendly wedding decorations. Many brides-to-be may think that having eco-friendly wedding decorations are impractical and unstylish. However, the opposite is true. There are many eco-friendly wedding decorations that are not only cost efficient, but also gorgeous and unique.

To help brides-to-be create a more environmentally friendly wedding, we gathered a few ideas for eco-friendly wedding decorations.

Plantable Flavor Tags

Candles:
Instead of using the common petroleum-based candles that you find in many stores, use soy or beeswax candles. Also check that the candles have cotton wicks to help avoid lead.

Votive Holders and other small decorations:
Don’t purchase any small decorations that can’t be gifted to guests or used for another event. Don’t spend money on things that will just end up in the landfill by the end of the night.

DIY:
Many decorations can be made by you or your crafty friends and family members. Know a good seamstress? Have her sew the table cloths or runners. Other crafty friends can help you create favors, various decorations and much more.

It’s much easier than many think to have more eco-friendly wedding decorations. Don’t be afraid to get creative! You will not only save money, and have a greener wedding, but you will also create a personalized and unique wedding that you and your guests will remember for years to come.
