IB#260 {Trend Alerts!} The Embroidery Effect

Virginia event plannerOla loves!! Yippie its midweek! We're so near our National day and looking ever forward for the looong weekend.. hehe yay another hols. (yes we got too many hols) haha. Okes, back to another IB of the week; this time we co-join with {Trend Alerts!} for more exciting wedding stuffs for you brides!

Today's inspiration is all about  Embroidery!! Yes. im sure we all know what is the Embroidery Effect.. the age-old art of intricate stitching and threading, the hardcore way during thoese days into wedding gowns. The old days- you see they're just available on dresses. But nowadays, embroidery has evolved to a new level: more seen on runways and and decors too! What mesmerized us is that, whether it’s flowery detailing on a gown or veil, gold stitching on a pair of stately loafers, or perhaps sewn on a bright, colorful bodice, we just love love how fine design of this tradition.

Fab Fridays: What to know when choosing your Wedding Photographer

Image credit by Abby Rose Photography
Helooo loves! Yippie we're back on fave day of the week! Its Happy FLYdaysss!! Hope you guys havin an awesome week!! Things has been busy in the backroom here in SA! SA Aug issue will be ready soon!!
Back to Fabulous Fridays; today's post is featured special from InspiredbySA team. Which, we will be more on 411 & planning today!
Today's topic is what you brides ought to know before you hire your wedding photographer. Always take note that the person you hire is probably one of the very few people who is going to be with you the entire day. They will be there there, on every moment; when you're having your hair and make-up done until the end of the wedding day when you and your husband are ready to say "au revoir!" So, before you jump in the wagon and pick the next best photographer in town, here's some tips (collaboration with photographers) on choosing your wedding photographer. Hope you find these tips helpful - let's read on!

1. Figure your favorite photo style.

Before deciding, we think it's important to find the photographer whose portfolio makes you say, "Wow, that's the photographer who is going to "get me". They're going to create the feel you want for your wedding day with their images." Why? because there's no such perfect photographer for everyone, and each photographers have their own style and angles they focused on. So its true, that some photographers shows sleek photos, others have mastered whimsy, and some are true romantics. Depending on bride's preference style - some prefers romance feel, some adores retro, some likes artsy's. Basically its utmost importance - a bride to find the photographer who fits their wedding vision.
