Getting Your Photos in a Snap!

How many weddings have you been to where you see this horribleness (is that a word??) on the table?

I’m sure you’ve been the culprit of taking or being in unnecessary, crotch shots, shoe shots, up the nose shots, blurry, mis-angled, and undeletable (that for sure is not a word!) shots!

Depending on your guest count, purchasing these cameras, plus the processing fee can run you about $300.  Half of the pictures aren’t worth being used and you end up wasting a piece of your budget on horrible photos.

What if you could have guests upload photos automatically through their iPhones or Android phones while still at your wedding?

There’s an APP for that!

The company is called Wedding Snap, based out of the USA of course, but servicing Canada and many other countries as well.

Packages start at $99(USD) which includes a one year online, unlimited storage photo album, unlimited photo uploads during and after your reception.  Additional packages supply you with additional albums to add to your account for your Bachelorette, Jack and Jill, Wedding Shower etc.  You can also get 250 customized information cards for your couples to pass out at their reception with the instructions on how to download the app from the app store (free to your guests) and a username/password to upload the photos to your private album.

Guests who have a Blackberry (I know, I know, I’m switching soon!) or would like to upload photos from their digital cameras after the reception can do so online. The process is similar to uploading photos to Facebook!

Afterwards, with the click of a button, you can download all the photos to your computer to print, upload photos to Facebook to share or send prints to your online printing store to print!

So what does it look like?  To view a sample album, go here and enter the password: ashley45

If you want something different and so special that your guests will be in awe over on your wedding day, we’ve found the perfect thing for you!

Bridal bouquets, while beautiful and deep in tradition, are often a big expense for something that lasts only a few days – if you even keep it!

Brooch Bouquets start at $350CAD, button bouquets start at $125CAD.  Both are designed and created to match the personalty, style or theme of the event.  Shipping for anywhere in Canada is a flat rate of $10CAD.  Other items that can be used to make a bouquet are: feathers, lace and wire, or just about anything else!

Pins and picture frame attachments are also available to dress up your bouquet.

The Groom’s Boutonniere is included in the cost of the bridal bouquet and can be created to compliment the bride’s design or be completely different.

In support of The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, The Bouquet House donates 10% of the sale price of any PINK brooch bouquet purchased.

One more thing that I totally love is the corsages.  Whether these are used for a wedding for the mother of the bride or groom or just to dress up an everyday outfit, I totally love them!  Imagine it on your blazer???
