Have a really good think about it;
if you decide to communicate EVERYTHING about your wedding to ALL of your guests in person, on the phone or via snail mail (save the dates, invitations, RSVPs etc.) you are handing over a LOT of your precious time.
And we know that there are at least a dozen other (read: fun) things that you would rather be doing than licking envelopes, chasing RSVPs or having repeated, lengthy calls with his family about their interpretation of the semi-formal dress code.
Here are what some of the cooler wedsites (wedding websites) now offer soon-to-be-weds at a pretty low price or in some cases, for FREE!
Congratulations on your engagement!
There are exciting times ahead but right now, you’re just drunk on the love, right?
But that’s when they get ya..
Like it, or not (mostly, not) you are going to be on the receiving end of a lot of (sometimes unwelcome) advice and it will all start from the moment you announce your engagement.
So I wanted to give you a little heads up BEFORE you start planning ANYTHING.
We've pulled together the most common causes of newly-engaged angst and how to sidestep them in the hope that you can keep yourself wrapped up in the warm, comfy blanky of your love for just a little while longer..

Unbridely loves wedding photographers.
We appreciate the depth of their experience and love the raw emotion they capture in their photos; the art and their legacy. So it's made us sad to see quite a few wedding photographer horror stories hitting social media lately.
We feel that they cast a shadow over the amazing service, product and experience that the majority of professional wedding photographers provide to their couples.
But there is no escaping the sense of loss a newlywed couple feels when the wedding professional, they trusted their photographic memories and hard earned money with, fucks it up.
And not just in a 'people make mistakes' way. It's the 'I'm above society's norms/I don't subscribe to basic courtesy/what are you going to do about it anyway' kind of attitude that really gets us fired up.
So what can be done about it and how can you avoid hiring a dodgy photographer?
