If your groom doesn’t own one yet, now is the perfect time to invest in something that he’ll wear for the rest of his life! And… it’s a lot less expensive than you may think! Custom suits can const thousands of dollars, but most well known and popular brands have off-the-rack suits in their stores that are a fraction of the price.

Finding a photographer can be just as difficult as choosing your venue. In some ways it is more difficult because you can’t see the final photographs from your wedding before it happens. You have to rely on them to deliver beautiful images based on the work they’ve done in the past. At least when you are choosing on a venue you know what it will look like when they give you a tour of the location. But photography changes based on the light, the timing, and so many other variables, therefore, it’s important to find a photographer you trust will provide the beautiful images that you’ve seen them produce on their website, but it’s also vital for you to feel a connection to them. Here are 5 tips to help you find your photographer!
