BrideBox wedding albums are the same albums offered by professional photographers. But every BrideBox album is manually assembled to your custom specification.

A recent review from the independent website Photo Book Girl, described it this way: “This is a high-end, luxury photo album – not a printed photo book. The paper is professional photographic paper, and the photos are manually mounted and carefully bound together in a handcraft process.”

The extra workmanship in every BrideBox album is worth the investment of your wedding photos. As one customer commented after receiving her album, “Wonderful! Print quality, paper quality and overall build was fantastic!!!” We’re confident you’ll agree with her after receiving yours.

The Ultimate Bachelorette Party Checklist

Bachelorette parties, also known as hen parties in the UK, are the ultimate girls nights out. The bride-to-be and her closest gal pals get together for an epic night (or weekend!) and celebrate her final days as an unmarried woman. It’s the perfect opportunity for the bridal party to blow off some steam before preparing for the stress of the wedding day. Whether you choose to keep things simple with a girls night in, or if you want to get a little wild with a trip to Vegas, our checklist will help make sure that you and the girls will have a night to remember.

“Bride-to-be” crown and sash

Despite the fact that you are all getting together to party, this is still about the bride-to-be’s special day. A crown or veil and a sash will make her stand out and make her the star of the night.

Goodie bags

There are so many fun little items that you can include in goodie bags to hand out to each of your bachelorette party guests. Include a combination of items to be used immediately for the party, such as mini shots, fun sunglasses and matching necklaces, as well as gifts for each lady to bring home, such as cute underwear, body scrubs and scented lotions. These can even be customized for each girl based on her interests and tastes!

Phallic items

Let’s be honest – no bachelorette party is complete without some phallic items. There is an endless array of party favors that come shaped like penises and are meant to be used in a mildly inappropriate manner. Buy some penis-shaped straws or candy, bake a penis-shaped cake or even purchase some naughty toys if that’s the style you’re going for.

4. What is the most exciting aspect of wedding planning for you?

I would say that besides picking out my wedding dress, the centerpieces and honeymoon planning have been exciting for me! The centerpieces because I love to decorate and the honeymoon, because I can’t wait to get away with my husband!

5. Have you chosen a color scheme?

Yes, we have. The theme of our wedding is “Apple of My Eye” and our wedding colors are black, white and apple green.

6. Are you having a big wedding or a small intimate wedding?

Our actual wedding will be small and intimate and the reception will be a little larger.

7. How involved has your SO been in planning thus far? How do you feel about that?

He doesn’t get too involved in all of the little details. He pretty much lets me pick and chose what I want, however, I have assigned some duties to him.

Why You Shouldn’t DJ Your Own Wedding

Here at BrideBox, we absolutely love the concept of DIY as a way to save money and exercise your creativity, especially when it comes to your wedding. However, sometimes things should be left to the professionals. For example, trying to create and set up your own lighting system may sound like a great way to cut costs, but we all know that hiring a skilled professional would guarantee much better results.

It may seem obvious that you would want a professional company to do your lighting, but what about something like music? Your reception is the time for everyone to relax a bit and let loose on the dance floor. And let’s be honest, we’ve all been to a concert or a party with a DJ and thought to ourselves, “That looks easy. I could totally do that.” In this day and age, more and more people are taking the DIY approach to music by loading up an iPod or other music player with their favorite tracks and just letting it play throughout the night. But what most people may not realize is that relying on a tiny device to provide such an integral part of your big day opens the door to many potential problems and issues. Here are a few of the undeniable reasons why you shouldn’t DJ your own wedding.

Technical difficulties

The most common issue with DJing your own wedding is technological difficulties. There are a lot of different components to getting your sound system to work and sound good, and speakers, cords, the sound mixer and the actual music playing device are just a few of the key ones. Any number of technical failures could happen with any of these devices which would cause you to have no music for your ceremony and reception. In addition to electronics not working at all, electronics are also notorious for not working as they should. Poor sound quality, harsh feedback and extreme differences in volume from song to song are all technical failures that would disrupt the flow of your reception and negatively impact your guests’ experience. All it takes is one faulty cord or an iPod crash to ruin your perfect day.
