Once again, the Bridal Bar is pleased to host Guest Blogger, Kristi Brooks from Stylelab.  As Kristi continues to plan her big day, like most of you she is facing the creation of “The Guest List.”  Let’s listen in as Kristi shares her challenges and some solutions! 

The Magic Number….

Why does it seem that 150 guests is the magic number for most weddings? And more importantly, why does my fiance have such a giant family?! I grew up with two sisters, one uncle, one aunt and one first cousin, so my entire family can fit very comfortably around 2 or 3 tables. My fiance on the other hand…. different story. Since our venue can only accommodate 160 guests, this has been my single greatest stress so far…. cutting down the bloody guest list! Is it wrong that when any couple friend of ours breaks up, I say a little silent cheer? ( if you are one of my broken up couple friends reading this, I am terribly sorry for your loss and know you will find an even better mate, but not until after November 14th please:-)

To remedy this conundrum, I have devised a little test…. 
1) Does this person know I am engaged? If not, they’re out.
2) Have I seen or at least talked to this person in the last year? If not, sorry, you also may not attend.
3) Were we invited to their wedding? This one is tricky and case sensitive; I am still working on a few of those cases.

I think all in all, it really comes down to who do YOU really want to be there on YOUR big day?

The Wedding Lens – Online digital photo sharing 04.02.09

The Bridal Bar San Diego

  Check out this cool wedding photo sharing site we found on twitter !

 The Wedding Lens allows you to create a customized online wedding album filled with photos from you and your guests. You just register and tell everyone to upload their photos into one online album that is only accessible by you and your friends. From there, you can download and print whichever photos you like – regardless of who uploaded them to the album.

If you’ve been considering placing disposable cameras on each table – you can get a similar result without having to develop all those photos.  And everyone (not just the bride and groom) get to see all of the fabulous photos from the event.  Very green and you get instant gratification while you are waiting on all those professional photos to come your way.
