GPS Decors – The Formula to Plan your Perfect Wedding – Part V
The last two posts have been all about our surroundings and our intention when it comes to our family and friends who come to stand with us while we move onto another phase in life. But lets get back to what’s really important, you. Well, not you specifically, more your memories of you, that day, with those people and how you want to shape those things?
“What memories are most important to me?”
Of course your wedding day is a day for making memories, everyone knows that and the cliché has been around longer than you or I have so it must be true. But that doesn’t mean you have to stick to passe and bourgeois methods for capturing them.
There will be pictures! You are going to be on film. Your make-up team and hairdresser will take care of this. In the spirit of discretion and personal vanity, make sure you have a wedding hairstyle and a reception hairstyle backup should the locks not stay for the party. Don’t spend the whole night checking your looks either. The camera phones will go away after the ceremony and won’t come out until the speeches. Because having fun with a camera phone is more difficult and people are there to party. You can also request that people refrain from digital photos to prevent your nuptials from being plastered all over social media.
Get your pre-wedding photos taken with your maids and men and then get down and have a good time. If you obsess about how each photo is going to turn out you’ll miss a heck of a good time. Besides, you’ve hired someone to make those choices for you and your money should ensure their discretion at not developing those less flattering photographs which may or may not exist.
What else can we say about memories? They definitely change over the years. So maybe you could look into video-blogging the whole thing from multiple perspectives or your bridesmaids and family. That way your anniversary dinner will have the night’s entertainment built in and your partner will see exactly how much hell you went through to get to that special day.
More than anything else, memories live in our minds and hearts. So in that spirit, whatever your decisions on methodology for capturing memories is, you have to make some for there to be any worth capturing. Get all the quality time in with your guests that you can. Those candid and warm moments will come out naturally and you won’t ever have to manufacture fun or ease. The best pictures of our weddings are often the ones we don’t even know we’re in.
