The “Tweeter of Honor”

February 6, 2016
The Tweeter of Honor

It is the most important day of your life and you don’t wanna be distracted. Words from the wise, forget about your phone.

While we are positive that your boss won’t be bugging you with emails on your special day, your Twitter feed might be getting notifications off the hook. Maybe from friends and loved ones who could not make it to the venue and would want to send their wedding greetings via social media. Or from those in the venue who are excited to upload photos about your dream wedding, tagging you of course.

So how can you not miss anything at your wedding while updating everyone on social media?

Simple – assign a “Tweeter of Honor”. It is the best way to enjoy your day and stay off your phone while still keeping everyone updated.

Colors Of The Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity

January 4, 2016
Pantone of the Year

This year will be all about pastel colors and there will be two favorites: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These two, when mixed, is the Pantone Color of 2016.

Rose Quartz and Serenity, Pantones 13-1520 and 15-3919 respectively at the Pantone Color Matching System, will be a softer version of last year’s Color of the Year which is the Marsala. It is the first time that the blending of the two shades is chosen as the Pantone Color of the Year.

“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent,” says pantone.com. “Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

This should be a perfect guide in choosing your wedding theme which will also dictate the color palate of your wedding photos. Of course, this would mean a beautiful wedding album.

World Kindness Day: Kindness Makes Dream Wedding

November 11, 2015
Blog - Jennifer

We often hear that what the world needs is LOVE. And definitely, more KINDNESS.

A month after receiving a diagnosis of a rare form of breast cancer, 29-year-old Jennifer Gargano was married in a wedding made possible by the generosity of strangers.

Gargano’s husband Brian proposed on Valentine’s Day, and the couple originally planned to wed in August 2013. But after a diagnosis of angiosarcoma of the breast one month later, they decided not to wait.

Brian enlisted Elysia Skye, a wedding officiant they found on the website Yelp, to perform the ceremony. Little did they know that Skye was herself a breast cancer survivor, who took to Facebook asking everyone she knew to help donate to the big day.

Vintage Weddings Are Back!

October 30, 2015
Vintage Weddings 1

Dear Yours Truly Readers,

I visited my mom over the weekend for an early Thanksgiving celebration because this year, we will spend the actual Thanksgiving Holiday with Chad’s family.

While my mom was prepping for last minute touches on décor before our guests arrive, I shuffled through some old photos of my grandparents, although the photos weren’t stored in any special ways – most of them survived through the test of time. I LOVE looking at them. And each time I do, I always thought how my mom and I look exactly alike when we were growing up.

The one picture that caught my eye was my great grandparents wedding picture. My mom is the lucky great grandchild who kept all old photos. Or perhaps, amongst all her siblings, she was the most sentimental one. 🙂

I admire the vintage style of weddings and everything about it! My grandma’s gown was spectacular- simple cut neckline, simple silhouette, simple soft fabric: just simply elegant!

“Greige” is the “in” color of this Year’s Wedding Motifs

October 9, 2015
Blog- Greige

Dear Yours Truly Readers,

In June, I wrote a blog titled, “Color of the Year – Marsala”, to tie it with our leather colors at YoursTrulyWeddingAlbums.com leather choices for your wedding albums covers.

Last month, Chad and I attended a seminar for business owners in the wedding industry. Not that I’m surprised to hear that “greige” is the “in” color of wedding themes; but, I was happy to hear (and see) the creativity of color palettes that the wedding industry has inspired for the brides and grooms.

So, “greige” is the new “grey” or the new “beige” – love it! We saw about three companies with employees wearing “greige” colored t-shirts. It’s pretty cool.

Life Gives Love a Second Chance

September 21, 2015
Blog- Second Chance

Dear Yours Truly Readers,

Do you remember my girlfriend, who after 15 years, was divorced by her husband? Well…after many months of heartache from the separation, she finally went on her first date!

OMG! I couldn’t be so thrilled for her. Others may think it’s too soon. But, I never thought that for a moment! I believe that there’s no place for people to judge when is the right time for someone to move on with their lives after divorce.
