Finding a good wedding photographer and videographer is one of the most important task for your wedding. You must have found yourself criticizing the quality of wedding photos and videos of your friends but when it comes to you, you can’t have anyone being critical about your wedding album. Toronto wedding photographers are famous in the whole of Ontario and even Canada. People from different parts of the country hire professional photographers from here. Hence, you need not think about searching anywhere for photographers out of Toronto. In fact, professionals’ and artists from other parts of the country migrate to this colorful city in search of newer and better demands. Hence, you would find in here all the talent you would ever want.
As mentioned above, Toronto is a place of abundance and you would find unlimited choices in all kinds of wedding services. Now the issue that needs some sorting is how to choose the best service among the better ones. Firstly, take time to do some research. Wedding photography is a work art and fashion. The way a wedding album is complied keeps on changing and you better so some research into the current trends in this field. Once you know what style is best suited for your wedding album, skim through the portfolio of some of the well known Toronto wedding photographers. Get a preview of their working style and rates. Yes, rates form yet another important criterion for making your final choice. Unless you do not care about your wedding budget, do not forget to compare the photographers in terms of their quotes.
Most of the Toronto wedding photographers take up the video services too. They usually offer better rates when you combine these two services. And most of the wedding planners assign both the photography and videography jobs to a single team. Well, even though this sounds the most obvious and most convenient option, it might not be the best option always. Go for specialization if you need quality at any cost. Professional photographers are usually only concerned with photography. They do not try to expand their talents into videography just for the sake of money.

Here are some ideas to help you.

Do: When you start looking for your wedding dress take two people with you but no more than this as bridal boutiques can be cramped places. Choose two people who will help keep your feet on the ground but who will not try to influence your final decision. Your choice of wedding dress is yours & yours alone.

Here is a list of 5 wedding planning tips that happen to get overlooked in the hustle and bustle of wedding arrangements. While wedding planning is important, sticking to the plans are by far of more importance. After all, what good is having a plan if you’re not going to follow through with it?
The following 5 tips are intended to guide you through your wedding planning as smoothly as possible:
1. DON’T GO OVER BUDGET! We’ve seen it happen time and time again. Newly wed couples thing they have everything figured out to the penny. But when the wedding is over they’re left with unpaid bills and unexpected expenses. The solution? Don’t go over budget! Plan everything for your wedding in advance: the cost of the caterer, DJ, photographer, and any other vendors you intend to hire. A word of advice: Don’t invite your cousin’s sister’s husband’s brother if you can not afford to feed him and his family. Start with immediate family and close friends-continue from there. It’s really rude (and embarrassing) to dis-invite someone at the last minute (because you discovered you can’t afford it!).
2. ORDER WEDDING ATTIRE EARLY Picture it: The Groom’s Best Man is wearing a tuxedo that’s three times too large for his body. The Bride’s Maid’s dress is so tight , she can barely breathe! These are horrific scenarios that actually do happen and need last minute resolutions. Don’t put yourself through this chaos. Get everyone fitted for their dresses and tuxedos as early as 6-8 months in advance. Ladies-don’t forget wedding accessories!
3. BOOK ACCOMODATIONS EARLY In some tourist frequented cities, guest accommodations need to be set up to a year in advance! Call resorts/hotels and book a set amount of rooms for your guests on a specific date. Be certain to have enough rooms for all of your out-of-town guests. Shop around for several accommodations, as your guests may be on a budget too! Especially if they just paid to travel to your location.
4. GET A MARRIAGE LICENSE FROM YOUR OWN COUNTRY If you’ve decided to have a destination wedding-don’t arrive at that destination without a marriage license. Most states have a 30-60 day turn-around rate with marriage licenses. It’s worth the wait. Why, you ask? Different countries have different marriage customs and requirements. Nevertheless, you should bring your new marriage license with you wherever you are going to marry. If you are re-marrying, bring your divorce papers as well.
5. BEAUTIFICATION CAN GET UGLY Bad tans, allergic reactions to hair dye or other chemicals can be a nightmare. Don’t until the last minute to get a pre-wedding ‘make-over.’ Facials and waxing can also leave unwanted blotches, burns, and breakouts for those wedding photographs! Make all beautician appointments a week or two in advance. Part of good wedding planning is being the ‘early bird’ make sure everything is in place nice and early inthe planning stages.
