Wedding Tips From Dax Photography 12

At my own wedding in September, my wife and I decided to make it an adults only affair.  I’m seeing this at more and more weddings.  We were worried that our guests who were parents would be upset…in fact it, was exactly the opposite.  Everyone LOVED the idea and treated it like a romantic date

“Styled Wedding” This is a term in our industry where a group of wedding vendors will get together and do a photoshoot with professional models. Basically it’s a fake wedding for a photoshoot.

All wedding dresses with a train will have thumb hook to help you carry the train as you walk.  It’s always located on the underside of the train in the center about a foot from the edge (usually a 6 inch satin ribbon loop).  Some brides never notice it, and others try to cut it

Try on your dress at least 5 times before your wedding day.  Not just in the store, or the alterations shop.  Make sure you try on your dress at home, preferably with the people who are actually going to lace/zip you into it.  Practice getting into your dress!  Know if you need to step into

Powdered Sunscreen…yeah it’s a thing!  Those outdoor weddings can be brutal on a bridal party’s skin.  With pictures and the actual ceremony/reception all outdoors it’s no wonder so many people get sunburned at weddings (on their shoulders and especially face if their makeup isn’t SPF or they missed a spot).  To make sure your bridal

Face each other during the ceremony as much as possible, if not ALL of the ceremony.  A lot pastors/officiants will have you face them during the ceremony…especially the important parts…DON’T DO IT!  Here’s why…1) facing each other will calm each other’s nerves, and don’t you want to look in each other’s eyes during the ceremony!?!?

If you’re looking to save money, try not having a stacked wedding cake.  Usually you see a stacked 3 tiered cake at a wedding.  If you ask the bakery to not stack them…ie 3 separate round/square cakes it’s usually half the price!  You can then present them in all sorts of creative ways.  Same beautiful

Register at Bed Bath and Beyond…it’s still the only major store that allows cash back on returns. It’s a tactful way to ask guests for cash to help pay for the wedding. Plus, I don’t know about you, but when my wife and I got that price gun in our hands we went crazy and


2015 Missoula Wedding Fair-WHY YOU SHOULDN’T GO!

I’ve been a vendor at the Missoula Wedding Fair for over 5 years now and have seen it progressively go downhill.  This is the Cherry Creek Wedding Fair held every year at the Holiday Inn Downtown.  It has suffered from poor management and utter greed by the host radio station.  This year I finally decided
