Wedding Dates to Avoid in 2018

Ready to set a date? Check this list of dates you might want to steer clear of when booking your wedding.

By Justine Lorelle Blanchard    

Personally Significant Days

Check your own calendar for college reunions, family weddings, anniversaries or other events, like big conventions or festivals in your city (call your local chamber of commerce), and any annual occasions that involve your family or close friends.

Holiday Weekends

Holiday weekend weddings have pros and cons. You've got an extra day for the festivities (and recovery!); plus, a Sunday wedding is often less expensive than a Saturday one. But costs of travel and hotels may be higher. And if you're looking to marry around Valentine's Day, be wary of your floral bill, especially if you've got your heart set on red roses—they'll likely be more expensive than at any other time of the year. Likewise, reception sites often charge a higher fee for a New Year's Eve wedding. Also consider the impact of a holiday weekend on your guest list: Some families have standing plans or traditions that they'd prefer not to miss.

Mother's Day (always a Sunday) Make sure your moms are okay sharing this weekend with your wedding. And ask yourself: Do you want your anniversary to fall on the same weekend as Mother's Day when (or if) you become a mom?

Memorial Day (always a Monday)

Father's Day (always a Sunday)

Like you would with your moms, check with your dads about doubling up on this day. And grooms, make sure you're okay with celebrating your anniversary the same weekend as Father's Day if you decide to have kids.

Thanksgiving (always a Thursday)

New Year's Eve

Religious and Cultural Holidays

Be mindful of religious and cultural holidays (your own and those of your guests) when planning your wedding. There may even be restrictions at your house of worship as to whether you're allowed to marry at these times.

Unlucky Dates

If you're superstitious, you might want to watch out for these historically inauspicious dates from across several cultures.

Friday the 13th The unluckiest date of the year has questionable origins. Some historians say it comes from the 13 diners who were present at the last supper, but the famous Babylon's Code of Hammurabi doesn't include a 13th law, which suggests this superstition is as old as 1700 BC. And it wasn't until a successful novel titled Friday, the Thirteenth was published in the early 1900s that Friday became part of the unlucky equation.

Leap Years Greeks and Romans thought that starting any new life event— from getting married to baptizing a child— in a leap year would bring bad luck.

Live Stream Weddings: "I Do" in the Digital Age

By Christopher Doherty 

For most lovebirds to-be, a piece of the delight from arranging their weddings accompanies the sharing of their "Big Day" with family and friends.

Present day advancements in low-cost communication, such as live streaming, provides an alternative to hosting a traditional wedding, as well as, the option of live streaming a wedding to accommodate anyone who's unable to attend due to poor health, distance, cost or work. Oh, and, it's always a good idea to plan a wedding with the expectation that a few invitees won't be able to attend the ceremony for a variety of reasons.

Broadcasting "I do" (wedding ceremony) over broadband allows booked up, shut-in or far-flung loved ones to witness a couple tie the knot from virtually anywhere in the world.

Expert Live Streaming Services

Few organizations currently offer a comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end broadcasting options. Some supply their own equipment and support personnel, while others establish partnerships with freelance videographers who coordinate, set-up, and broadcast the live event. Boutique live streaming service providers place a greater emphasis on helping couples develop a thorough social media strategy -- coordinating with the photography and videography vendors.

Various DIY Broadcasting Options Available to Choose From

For couples on a budget, managing all aspects of live streaming a wedding can be overwhelming. However, there's a host of resources available to you, e.g., Skype, Apple's FaceTime, IBM Cloud Video and Google Hangouts to name a few. Nonetheless, before jumping in, it's important to bear in mind a few fundamental elements required to live stream a wedding:

•  Reliable Wi-Fi or broadband connection

•   Camera-equipped laptop, desktop computer, smartphone or tablet

•  Live streaming service provider that supports high-quality video transmission

•  Tripod mounts, if you're using a smartphone or tablet device

Additionally, it's highly recommended to plan and test your set-up ahead of time to guarantee the sustained quality of your video stream. Ensure that your video camera or mobile device is in a place that captures all the activity yet is likewise off the beaten path of guest activity.

Furthermore, disable any screen savers or sleep functions on the equipment to reduce the chances of experiencing an interruption during the live broadcast. Finally, make sure the guests have the link or landing page where your stream will be available, along with any passwords required to access the live stream.

When Planning to Live Broadcast a Wedding

Depending on your budget or preference, either hire an expert videographer with experience setting up and managing the event (end-to-end) or do it yourself with help from a knowledgeable friend.

Safeguarding that all points of failure are addressed well in advance of the service, regardless of whether you hire an expert. A best practice is to test and re-test the reliability, speed, and performance of the set-up so the broadcast is optimized to perform as intended. Oh, and, be watchful concerning copyrighted music performed amid your ceremony.

In addition to these considerations, it might likewise be reasonable to make your live stream accessible only to those whom you've invited to your wedding, meaning, use a live streaming service provider that offers password-protected access.

Saying "I Do" in the Digital Age

Social media, and the widespread adoption of "social technology" has changed human traditions and conventions. The effect of living in a web-based society and live streaming require contextually appropriate engagement.

While online broadcasting can be a great vehicle to bring people together who are separated by distance, care must be taken to get the most out of the experience. Thorough preparation and observing proper etiquette are both critical in making sure that all goes well on your Big Day!

Live streaming is the easiest way to broadcast your wedding. Today, a home computer, iPad, Android tablet or a smartphone can deliver high-quality HD video, allowing content to be created without expensive video equipment.

ONLive Streams' cloud streaming services were designed to accommodate anyone who's unable to attend a wedding or special event due to poor health, distance, cost or work.

It has been also seen that the duo of the day is also matching steps holding each other. After all, it is a dream moment for any boy and girl to step into a new phase of life with some dance moves.

Marriages and Music

It is an age-old tradition of any marriages either to step into the dance floor or to solemnize the occasion with music. What that was traditional songs and dance had transformed into a light and sound show with celebrities from the film industry participating in them. The latest is to have the Wedding DJs to manage the show with Digital sound system, DMX moving headlight that is fully computerized, lighting engineer to back up the support system, haze machines to create a mystic atmosphere at times, stages illuminated with LED lights cordless microphones, Confetti cannons and what not. The music churned out by these DJs make the atmosphere lively. The DJs work hard to entertain the guests with their mix and match the expertise and selecting the songs feeling the pulse and the flow of the occasion.

However if you want to spend a little more money to make your entry to the journey of the conjugal life memorable and want to cherish the moments in future fighting the thick and thin of the life, you can go for the celebrity Bollywood DJs to take the center stage turning the floor to burn with the famous Bollywood tunes that may be in Hindi, Punjabi or any other Indian Languages.

How to Make Your Wedding Photographs More Beautiful

By Kashish Gupta 

Wedding photographs always manage to look good, the question is how to make them better. Everyone wants to have some unique qualities in their wedding photographs which make them different from others.

Following are some of the ideas that can make your desire come to reality.

Negative Space:

Everywhere the common part of the wedding photographs are the beautiful backdrops but the unique and attractive things can also be found in the places where they are least expected. The negative areas, which could be anywhere in a house which is getting constructed. These places portrays the contrast between the ruin and the new life. These photographs don't only help you in bringing the unique element to your pictures but also make them look attractive.

Paired photos:

You can also have pictures that can be paired and reserved in a diptych form that shows the continuity of the actions and looks better than the normal posing picture of the couples. Wedding is all about the moments that are in motion and constantly changing and this way the diptych form calls out for the attention of others too. Having some different ideas and styles in your wedding photographs will make them beautiful.

Stolen moments:

The defined moments and the moments that are pre planned can be seen all the time in the wedding photography but the real fun is to be captured unknowingly. Basically the photographer has to be attentive for these shots, the moments that show the affection of the couple for each other and are being captured without the knowledge of the couple. These are the clicks which proves that stealing is not always bad after all.

The right light:

Light is one of the major component of the photographs and more precisely in this case the wedding photographs. If they used properly and wisely they can make perfect of the pictures but if not then they can spoil the whole wedding photo shoot. Proper lighting can bring reflection and bokeh look also that will make your wedding photographs stunning and the ones that will take all the praises in one go and makes them one of a kind.

Twisting the shadows:

The silhouettes look like the shadows and often create a romantic outlook of the photograph but shadows are also not the dull looking element in the photographs. Only thing that is required is to mold the shadows in an artistic way and it will make the pictures a brilliant art piece unlike the usual wedding photographs. It brings in the attractive element and will look even better if the mirror effect can be involved too.

Random clicks during live actions:

Indian weddings are full of rituals that have to be performed and in between many moments of fun and enjoyment takes place. These moments make the best of memories that can be treasured in the wedding album. These photographs have their own stories that connects to the emotions and their strings are attached to the hearts. The random pictures look one of kind and the stories and the moments make them personalized to the respective couple and their moments.

Laugh with your partner:

In the wedding photographs the chemistry between the couple is a must but the laughter shows their bond and how much they make each other happy. The laughter can not be faked and still have that genuine aspect in it, so it is better to make them laugh in real and capture that moment. The laughter shows the comfortability between the couples and makes the pictures bright with that relation of theirs.

Nature involvement:

There is one more element that will never let you fail in the process of getting amazing wedding photographs and that is the nature itself. The nature is truly the mother of humankind and will never disappoint them. The best of the photographs can be taken in the greens or around the blues, which provides the calmness and peace to the pictures and makes them stunning in their own serene way.

In between the shots:

The getting prepared part is always fun to capture. The wedding photographs should not only show the good pictures that are captured but also the in between scenes that show the confusion and chaos. No matter what the problem was once it was handled skillfully. Similarly it will always make you laugh while looking at your chaotic situations and the in between shots when you were thinking of the next photograph and got captured beautifully because the beauty is not always about the smiles.

The group pictures:

Friends are the gems that we find throughout our lives, they add more fun and love and excitement and happiness in our special days. So why not adding them in your wedding photographs and bring the best of the best. The group pictures rarely shows the fakeness of the emotions, they are mostly true to the core of it and redefine the excitement of the couple. Also good poses and postures can be brewed out of the couple's groups.

Changing the view point:

Sometimes changing the angle or the perspective of the camera brings out the good wedding shots. Aerial shots are amazingly on to go now a days and trending furiously. Every couple wants to have an aerial coverage as well of their wedding and why not? It makes the pictures look like as if the angels are showering their love and blessing from above. These photographs taken from up above adds the gorgeous element to the photographs and the want of the age.

Utilize the location fully:

Last but not the least, the location coverage. It should be taken care of that the location where the wedding is planned will be covered properly as for the backgrounds of the wedding photography. So that the level best satisfaction can be derived from the location and the backgrounds. It allows the couple to have photographs from different angles and the different backgrounds bringing the variations in the photographs.
