WedPics Featured Wedding Couple: Jenna & Dan

Congrats to Jenna & Dan, recent newlyweds who have been kind enough to share their wedding journey with our blog!  Hear from them on planning their wedding, drawing inspiration and their one piece of advice to future newlyweds!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

1) What kind of personal touches did you add to your wedding?

Some of the personal touches we included were: a memory candle and table for my Dad (who passed away) at the reception.  This was VERY special to me because it was right when you walked in with candles, a poem and pictures, so everyone who came could see it and knew he was still a large part of our day.  I also had a picture of him on my bouquet so he could walk me down the aisle with my Mom.  My husband is Irish and we had a bag piper playing and leading us up the aisle after we got married.  Our last name is “Shea” so we had a signature drinks called a “Shea-tini” for the reception.  Also, instead of favors we donated money to our local cancer hospital in honor of my Dad and my husband’s aunt.  Instead of having a typical guestbook to sign, we had a white rocker that everyone signed.  It was perfect!  Our sweet golden retriever is our baby so we got to include him in our pictures and our 12 day old godson as well.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

2) If you could choose just one, what was your favorite moment from the wedding weekend?

My favorite moment from the wedding was coming down the stairs at the reception hall after being announced Mr. and Mrs. Shea!  All of our friends and family were standing and waving their napkins above their head.  It was so overwhelming to feel all that love in one room.  My grandma and my husand’s grandfather passed away a few weeks later, so it was very special to have them be a part of our day!  We will cherish those memories and pictures forever.  A close second would be dancing the night away with friends and family!  We had a very fun and exciting crowd who danced the night away with us!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

3) Was WedPics a part of your special day?

Absolutely! I used WedPics for picture ideas!  I loved the ideas I saw on Facebook.  It inspired many ideas for our wedding.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

4) If you could give one piece advice for future couples planning their wedding, what would that be?

My advice would be to do whatever it is YOU want to do.  Don’t listen to anyone else who tries to tell you they would or wouldn’t do something you were thinking of doing.  If you don’t do it your way, you will always regret it.  Also, take a minute and step back with your spouse and take it all in for a minute.  The day flies by and before you know it is over.  Take a minute and remember what it felt like in that moment to be surrounded by so much love.

Congrats Jenna & Dan!  If you were recently married and would like to be featured on our blog, email us at blog@wedpics.com!

For The Groom: Inexpensive Upgrades to Transform Your Wedding Attire

Posted by 

Whether you’re looking to upgrade the wedding day attire for your groomsmen, or just yourself, we’ve got you covered with these inexpensive options.

Outspoken Groom Decree: come wedding day leave no pocket behind. Companies like General Knot and Squared Aweigh offer numerous pocket square pattern and design options for you and your groomsmen. Don’t worry about having a perfectly symmetrical fold in your pocket square though. It looks better when just a little disorderly.

Unless you wear a Rolex or Panerai on a daily basis, and if so you’re probably a pompous douche, opt for a casual watch like the Timex Weekender with interchangeable straps. Remember, your wedding day is supposed to be relaxed and fun.

Okay, so maybe not suitable for those boardroom meetings with your senior partner, but colorful laces are a simple and economical way to make any pair of dress shoes stand out. Just remember, when replacing your wingtip’s original laces for something bright, stick to a dark, solid dress sock. You don’t need to look like Willy Wonka.

Believe it or not, you can probably wear suspenders without looking like Larry King or Bill Lumbergh…under two conditions. One, only if you have a slim and slender build, otherwise it just looks like you couldn’t find a belt long enough to fit. Two, always remember that opposites attract. A striped or patterned shirt looks best with solid colored suspenders, and vise versa.

Cheers Gents.
