One day I was working out at Curves and talking to one of my friends there.  One thing I like about Curves, I have gotten to know some of my fellow Curvettes and it’s so much more motivating to be able to talk as you go around!

This particular lady is a DJ for weddings.  She’s not just any DJ, but an award winning DJ. Her name is Helen Hilgers and she won the ABIA  (Australian Bridal Industry Awards) for Excellence 2005 & 2008 .   She is booked out until she leaves for America.  She will be going to Southern California at the beginning of December 2008 – you lucky people! If you want her at your wedding you’d better get in quickly!

I invited Helen to become a Guest Blogger on my site. She was telling me so many interesting secrets to having a relaxing wedding day, and how staff and the wedding party should make sure your day is delightful and easy. A wedding needs to be remembered as a happy day. She has made so many great suggestions I decided to put them all into a easy guide to help you have a beautiful, relaxing wedding day.

If you need more information about planning your wedding day and honeymoon I would be happy to help. Just let me know via a comment to the blog and I will do my best to find the expert in that area. I am adding new articles to my site all the time.  If you want to find out what is happening in Bridal Wear Today www.bridalweartoday.com will be a great place to start looking for ideas.

It can get a bit windy during afternoon weddings, and Helen suggested for all Brides….
“If you are having your pictures taken outside, be sure to have some Bobby pins and hairspray with you. Wedding pictures can be ruined if your hair blows across your face or your new husband’s. ”

I always loved the way it sounds when I say “Let me introduce you to my HUSBAND”!

Remember the wedding I went to last week?  Well one thing I forgot to mention was the music.  Being in such a beautiful setting,  loud music would have been intrusive.  The bride so perfectly chose to have a clarinet and harp duet.  The effect was fantastic, it fit so well with the rain forest feel of the day.
So, when you are choosing your wedding music consider………
1. 15 to 20 minutes of music while your guest are arriving

2.    A song of your choice as you enter (Walking down the aisle)
3. Two songs while signing the register

4. Happy up beat love song when your announced Mr & Mrs……..
5. A few more songs if needed after the ceremony (Back-up)


Hey Girls……………………..
Have you already booked the reception venue, photographer, DJ and Celebrant/Church?  If not these are things you want to do right away, as they are the hardest to find and nail down.
Have a wonderful, relaxed wedding.
If you are thinking about taking a vacation down under  have a look at some of the wedding venues available and great ideas for traveling to Australia, as well as other spots around the world.
There is a place in Queensland called “Songbirds of the Forest”.  It was a beautiful setting with fabulous food, staff that took excellent care of the bridal party and plenty of room to dance.
Brides have more choice about what to wear than ever before and each has a dream of their romantic day and how it will look. Whether you are going to be married on a beach or a family church, a style of dress is out there to suit you and your budget. These days there are so many places to have an unusual wedding and the choice of gown and look of the wedding can be altered to suit the venue.
Here’s one of DJ Helen’s Wedding Tips:
Ø  I have seen many wedding dresses with trains over the years having problems hooking the train up at the reception. The hook or clip seems to give way on the dress after a few hours. My suggestion is to hang your dress with the train hooked up for a while (or days) and see if it gives way. If so, it might be safer to put another couple of stitches on the hook just to secure it a little better. (some trains can get a little heavy after a few hours).

Happy days are here ……………… enjoy the excitement of planning your wedding day.
