Wedding Gown

Wedding Gown

Formal/traditional: Full length, white gown with a long train. Complete with a veil and all the matching accessories to give the bride a touch of high class elegance.

Semi formal: Full length gown, but perhaps without a train or just a shorter one and maybe a veil. Dress could be white, off white or other colours.

Informal: Anything is acceptable from  a mini to a cocktail dress. You may want to match your attire with a theme, like jeans for a cowboy and western wedding. A trend is developing where brides are selecting dressed that can be worn again.

These days, purchasing wedding dress seems to be more popular in Sydney. A lot of rental dress places has been closing down over the years due to less demand from both brides and grooms. It’s definitely cheaper option if you purchase your wedding gown in Sydney. So you can select your favourite wedding gown and get them to tailor for you.
Make sure that you get your dress at least 3 months before your wedding which means that you will beed to order it around 6 months before your advance.

My favourite dress to photograph is mermaid style with a long veil. They look stunning in the photos.

Wedding Reception

Wedding Reception

Most couples don’t follow the tradition of leaving their reception early to begin

the honeymoon these days in Sydney. (why waste a great party?), so don’t forget to book your first night’s accommodation is a local hotel.

If you plan to party until the bitter end, be polite and warn your older guests or parents with kids. They were bought up to think it rude to leave a reception before the bride and groom.

If you are the groom is reading this blog, you might want to plan a nice surprise such as candles, soft music, Champagne or flowers in your hotel room for your beautiful bride.

I remember when one of my clients stayed at InterContinental Hotel Sydney,
they organized a bottle of Champagne for them. I thought that it was really nice.

Speaking of the hotel room, we need at least one hour tophotograph the bride is getting ready in the morning on your wedding day. So we can capture beautiful wedding photos for your bride.

Please be ready by the time we arrive in your hotel room or your place. (we don’t want to see you in your pajamas!)

Organising your Wedding in Sydney 2

Most people want the best wedding they can afford. There are limits to what you will be able to implement because you won’t have an endless supply of money. It’s at the point that you need to priorities what’s most important to you.

Determine who is able contribute financially and what amounts they are prepared to put forward and finalize these arrangements as soon as possible to give you a greater sense of confidence and control over your planning.

Parents of the bride traditionally pay for most of the wedding in Australia. However, today it is quite common for costs to be shared between both sets of parents and
increasingly, it has become accepted for the bride and groom to contribute as well.

Asking specific people and how you want to spend the money.  There is another way to get around this. Secure the total contribution up-front so you alone decides
where and how that money will be spent. All parties can agree beforehand what percentage they would like to contribute, and then agree beforehand what percentage they would like to contribute, and then have this money transferred into your own bank account.

Following  are some general spending guidelines, however, most of your money will always be spent on those things that are most important to you:

  •  Food & Beverages: 50-60 per cent of your budget
  • Flowers: 8-12 per cent of your budget
  • Music: 4-10 per cent of your budget
  • Wedding Photography: 18-25 per cent of your budget
  • Miscellaneous: 10-15 per cent of your budget

When you choose the photographer, please remember to choose one that will provide you high resolution images without any restrictions so you can print, enlarge or post your photos on facebook without any additional cost.

At Sydney Wedding Photography by Katsu, we provide all your high resolution images on DVD on any packages that you choose.

If you are seeking to reduce your costs, dispense with familiar wedding practices.

For example, have a breakfast, brunch, or cocktail reception  instead of a sit-down evening meal, and choose an off-peak time, day and season. (winter) Look for inexpensive locations like a park or beach, ask for help from creative friends and relatives who have expertise with cake making, decorations.
