Wedding Basics

Weddings are very special life cycle events.  Party Idea Pros will walk you through all steps of planning a wedding by providing professional recommendations on just about every detail for your service and celebration party with appropriate integration of your party  theme. The reality is there are so many websites, magazines, and books available to guide you, we will stick to more of the themed style weddings and party basics, leaving the wedding dresses (chances are we won’t be able to resist and will throw in a few of our favorite dresses) and other wedding specific details to the already over saturated wedding world.  At the bottom of this page you can find a few of the books and websites we have found to be most useful.

Step Four – Make the Party Last a Lifetime!

Don’t let this memorable event fade away with the morning sun. The next day, when all is still fresh, log onto Shutterfly.com to create photo books, memory calendars, and even photo thank you notes.  These make especially nice gifts for parents and memebers of the wedding party.

New! Design your engagement ring and wedding bands online
Amazon has a new tool to let you create your own ring!   We just wasted an hour playing with it and if nothing else, it is great fun!
Simply open up Amazon’s Create Your Own Ring page, and the first thing you’ll encounter is a set of sliding bars to help you narrow your choices and select your diamond. Start by picking your diamond shape. Then you can further refine your search by adjusting the sliders to set a range for price, carat weight, cut, color, and clarity. You can click “see results” at any point in the process to view all the diamonds that match your criteria.

Once you’ve found and selected the diamond you want, you will move on to choose the setting. Here, you can narrow your choices to a particular style of setting or a specific metal type. The images will show you how your diamond will look mounted in the setting.

After you’ve chosen the setting that appeals to you, all that remains is to select the ring size, and then—you’re ready to order.

New! Rent your Jewelry

If you really want to go way, way over the top, without spending way, way over the top, consider renting real diamond jewelry. I am fascinated by this concept. Adorn Brides actually leases fine elegant genuine jewelry for special occasions for a fraction of the price it would cost to buy it. How much more sparkly and glamorous can you get than wearing tens of thousand of dollars worth of jewels!
