David Tutera Wedding Tips

David Tutera - Talking About Expected Wedding Trends

Celebrity wedding planner David Tutera discusses not only Disney Weddings in this video, but also talks about what trends, and colors he expects for the next year.

David expects to see a lot of purples, and lavenders for the Spring, but is hoping to see more warm, and rich colors soon. I'd have to say, I agree with David, and have already seen a lot of his expectations coming into play.

When does David think a bride should pick her wedding dress? After you've already decided on your wedding ceremony site, your reception venue, what time of day your wedding will be, and your date. Then choose the best designer wedding dress to match all of the above.

David also talks about his new couture bridal collection that will help any busy bride create that perfect, modern look she hopes for.

Why Should Your Wedding Ring Go On Your Fourth Finger?

Watch This Great Video Below, That Explains This In A Wonderful, Unique Way.

Tips Before Choosing a Wedding Ring
(By: ghostevyta)

There is a huge array of diamond wedding rings available today, and choosing the one that will be with you for a lifetime is a serious affair.

Not only are there aesthetic factors to bear in mind, your diamond wedding ring holds also a deeper significance. It is a symbol of your love for the person that you married, and you should select the ring that you feels best captures the essence of these feelings.

The diamond ring you choose for your wedding should be everything that you feel your love to be - unique, beautiful and durable. And while there are a huge variety of styles and ring settings available, the core features of a truly beautiful diamond remain the same regardless of the style of diamond ring you pick to celebrate your wedding. You will hopefully wear this ring the rest of your life, so choose a style that seems timeless to you.

Selecting a wedding ring isn't as easy as it looks. You are going to wear your ring for the rest of your life, so it should be something you won't get tired of in a couple years. You will have to look at and try on many different rings before you come to a final decision and, being an intelligent consumer, you should know what your options are.

First, you will have to decide how much you can afford to spend. Then, with your budget in mind, choose the material you want your ring made of.

Wedding ring materials can be:

- 14K or 18K yellow gold, classic and still very popular for wedding and engagement rings; - white gold, which is gaining popularity because it looks stylish and very modern. Also white gold can be worn with silver or platinum jewelry and it goes with most fabrics; - platinum is one of the hardest metals, which in itself makes platinum a suitable symbol for enduring love. It is also very pure: while 18 K gold contains only 75% gold, most platinum jewelry is 95% platinum. Platinum rings look similar to white gold, are very elegant and stylish, don't scratch and don't loose their look with the passing years. Platinum rings are the most expensive but, considering that you will wear your ring for the rest of your life, that doesn't really matter for many couples; - titanium is long lasting, light and not very expensive, so it has recently became a very popular material for wedding rings. Titanium rings are similar in appearance to white gold rings but they are so light that you can hardly feel one on your finger. Titanium is a particularly popular material for men's wedding rings.

Diamonds are unbeatable favorites for wedding rings and with good reason - not only are diamonds the most beautiful and expensive of all precious stones, but they are also the hardest. Other hard stones are rubies and sapphires. Gemstones like amethyst or aquamarine are too soft, which makes them unsuitable for a wedding ring that you are going to wear every day.

No matter which style and material you choose, you want a ring that would be comfortable on your finger. For this reason it is always best to go with a ring that is smooth around the edges.

Imagine the next time you join a discussion about diamonds. When you start sharing the fascinating diamonds facts below, your friends will be absolutely amazed.

Diamonds are measured in Carat Weight. One carat weighs 200 milligrams. If a diamond is referred to as four grains, this also means that it is a one carat diamond. The word Carat comes from the word carob. A carob is a bean that grows on a tree in the Mediterranean. In times past, if a diamond weighed the same as a carob bean, it was one carob, or one carat.

How can you put a limit on learning more? The next section may contain that one little bit of wisdom that changes everything.

In the far east, where Carob trees do not grow, rice was used to measure the weight of a diamond. If a diamond weighed as much as four grains of rice, it was four grains - or one carat as we know it to be now. The majority of diamond purchases are for diamonds that are 1/3 of a carat.

Beware when shopping for diamonds that are already set or mounted. If more than one diamond is used in the piece, the tag on the jewelry will give the CTW or Carat Total Weight - it does not tell you the carat weight of each stone in the piece. You need to ask the jeweler for the total carat weight of the largest diamond in the piece to truly understand what you are buying.

The setting you choose is a matter of your own personal taste, but the diamond in your wedding ring should adhere to these important factors.

The characteristics of a beautiful diamond are known as the four Cs - carat, color, clarity and cut. Regardless of the style of diamond wedding rings that you and your partner choose, these are factors that will apply.

The carat of your diamond refers to its weight - simply put, the larger the diamond, the more valuable it becomes. While larger diamonds can be impressive, certain settings suit smaller carats better. Choose a carat that appeals most to you - a large diamond may be valuable, but the most important factor is how valuable it is to you.

The color of a diamond also relates to its value - the clearer the stone, the more valuable your diamond wedding ring.

The third factor is clarity - once again, the more clear a diamond, the more valuable it becomes. Though few diamonds are perfect, the ones with less clouds or flaws are more rare, and thus more expensive to purchase.

The final factor is the diamond's cut. The best cut will display the diamond's brilliance to the best effect.

Your jeweler will be able to help you select a diamond that fits all these characteristics, but remember that each diamond is beautiful in its own right. Your diamond wedding rings are a symbol of your love, so choose the one that speaks to you.

Hopefully the sections above have contributed to your understanding of diamonds. Share your new understanding about diamonds with others. They'll thank you for it.

And men, you need to take great care when shopping for that special diamond ring! Remember to ask the jeweler for the total carat weight of the largest diamond in the piece to truly understand what you are buying. Don't pay more for what you are getting.

We are dedicated to helping you learn more about diamonds, for better selection and your money's worth.

Wedding Hairstyles

By: Georgina Clatworthy

It can very difficult & confusing deciding which hairstyle would be perfect for your wedding day . By comparison choosing your dress was easier. You’ve probably thumbed through endless pages of magazines, read countless articles which tell you ‘wear it up’, ‘wear it down’, ‘go natural’, ‘go formal’ & at the end of it all you are still none the wiser!

Well, help is at hand - the following information should be all you need to make an informed decision about the right style for your big day.

Staying True to You

The key to success with your whole bridal outfit, not just your hair, is to maintain your identity. I have mentioned in many articles about all aspects of your wedding planning, that your wedding should be a reflection of your own tastes, style & personality. Your wedding hairstyle & indeed your whole outfit, is no different. It is a common bridal mistake to go all out for glamour or that special once in a life time look, but it nearly always ends with you looking in the mirror just not recognizing the person looking back at you.

Of course you should go for something a bit special on your wedding day, but the best advice is to stick to something that you actually like. After all you didn’t choose your wedding dress because the shop assistant told you they liked it or because they said it was the style all the celebrities are wearing at the moment , did you?

When it comes down to it, there isn’t really any right or wrong answers when selecting wedding hairstyles , but there are a few tips you can follow to help you narrow down your choices.

Plan Then Plan Some More

Planning a wedding can be an overwhelming experience. There is just so much to organize, book, hire, coordinate & schedule. What began as one of the most exciting phases in your life can end with feeling totally exhausted by the time the big day comes around.

But whether your wedding is a huge formal affair or a small casual & intimate party, chances are you will be putting together a wedding plan, either paper based in a notebook or on your computer with some nifty software. Whatever your planning style make sure your hairstyle is on the list. You will need to start to think about it earlier than you imagine. You will need time to consider your choices, find a good stylist (if you don’t intend on doing it yourself), purchase any accessories such tiaras, veils, combs & pins & finally book appointments to try out styles till you find the perfect one.

Be Your Beautiful Self

Fabulous hair on our wedding day is something we all dream of, but many brides will take it too far. They will feel that they must match the style of the beautiful model on the front cover a magazine, with her long golden tresses perfectly manicured into cascades of curls. Trying to imitate a look which is so far removed from your own everyday style can be a recipe for disaster.

If you have short hair & you want to grow it for the wedding then go ahead, but be aware of the timeframe here, do you have enough time to let it grow to the length you want? But think carefully, will it make you look more ‘blushing bride’ than you do already? Confidence is everything when it comes to your ability to pull a look off. If you feel confident & comfortable with the way you look, you will carry it off to perfection. If you don’t it will be immediately obvious & could spoil your day. The best advice? - go as yourself, that way you are certain to look great!

Stay Cool & Communicate

It isn’t just your own hair that you should consider, but that of your attendants as well. You may trust them to make the perfect choices for their hairstyles or you might want to pick something for them yourself. Whatever, your feelings on this, it is important that you talk with them about their hairstyles & your own. It is a good way to bounce ideas off each other & come up with a coordinated look that is complimentary to everyone. If you are paying for a stylist to do everyone’s hair then arrange appointments for a time when you can all attend & run through some options. The stylist should also be able to guide you & give you some good advice & ideas.

Keep to the Theme

If you are having a specific theme for your wedding then it is important to choose a hairstyle that will fit with it. A 60’s beehive won’t look right if your wedding theme is a glamorous 1930’s art deco affair. You don’t have to choose a style that is an exact replica of one from the period, but one that is evocative of it. Let your stylist know what your theme is & the style you want to evoke, they will be able to guide you & make some suggestions.

Let the Gown Be Your Guide

When you picked your wedding flowers, you will have told the florist the style of your gown, the fabric it is cut from & the texture of it. Armed with this knowledge your florist will have set to work designing a bouquet that is the right size, shape & weight to fit with your dress. The same should be considered when choosing your hairstyle. Give some consideration to the silhouette of your gown; your hairstyle needs to match the line of the dress. For example, a formal updo piled high on the top of your head would best suit a large formal ballgown style dress, where as a sleek poker straight style would best suit a slender, sheath style dress.
