They aren’t tall. They aren’t wide. When you see them lined up by the dozens, they will emerge into one of the most vibrant backdrops one will ever find. Their glamour is short-lived, however. Just like the cherry trees, the crabapples’ bloom lasts anywhere between two days to two weeks, subject to the weather forecast. The petals will eventually fall, often together like snowflakes, marking its end in dramatic fashion.

5 Questions to Ask During a Wedding Venue Visit (4)

Visiting venues can be overwhelming, especially when you walk in and are totally overcome with that “this is the one!!” feeling. It’s easy to completely forget all of the questions you know you should ask (even if you’ve dutifully written them in your wedding planning notebook). While most of those questions are easy to email or call and ask, there are a few that are best asked on the spot. Allison from Davis Row compiled this list of questions best asked in person, including a few you may not have thought of.

Did you and bae get engaged recently? First, take at least a week to bask in the love and excitement. You have time! But, eventually, you’ll want to start choosing venues to visit. You can find tons of information about capacities, photos of ballrooms, and phone numbers for preferred florists all over venue websites, but there are so many more questions to ask. Schedule a visit (and make sure there’s space on your phone for video!) and bring these along.

If you’re planning to have a rustic wedding and are in need of some fashion inspiration, then today’s lovely guest post brought to us by Wedding Forward (Toronto, ON) is for you!

And in 2009, the rustic style again returned triumphantly to the catwalks, remaining in the hearts of both fashionistas and wedding designers. Moreover, it remains relevant to the present day. How rustic style presents in the current wedding style? How to choose the rustic ball gowns for the rustic wedding ceremony? And what are the most popular rustic wedding dresses for today?

Everything Brides Need to Know About Window Light (6)

Everything Brides Need to Know About Window Light (3)

Today’s awesome guest post comes to us from Greg Hastain of HastainDavis, based in Portland, OR! Enjoy:

We absolutely love the results when our indoor subjects are photographed illuminated with window light. To clarify, this is specifically referring to photographs taken indoors, when the majority of the light is coming from a nearby window (or sometimes door). Depending on the time of day, cloud cover, and if there is an eave overhanging the window or some other exterior obstructions, the brightness of light coming from windows will vary, but in many instances is not exceptionally bright.
