News Announcement!

We thought we were on to something with the Storify idea....
 sadly the Storify idea didn't pan out since they changed the way they allowed comments to be made. However, on the most recent wedding we did we tried using a blog and tweeting the links to the pages. Guests were able to comment on the pages.
We feel that this might be an easier way then tweeting the individual images with a timeline.
As you know weddings can be a busy and chaotic (but super fun) event to attend.
Often the 'speaking' parts of a wedding get lost.
If they are on the blog as an image and text they are there for everyone to see.

If you attended the #WellyObeWed with the new format we would love to hear what you thought about it.
Thank you

Everyone! We have lots of new news to share with you!
First of all I would like you to help me welcome our newest members to the AWP...

We know these pals will be a huge asset to our group in helping us get you the wedding of your dreams!

Check here for a full list and brief bio of the AWP members.

The next big exciting news is the AWP is changing the format of how we do the weddings.

Click HERE to see a sample of our new format.
We will be using Storify to share the wedding images on twitter.
The sample shows the wedding of Belle and Herman that we did in 2013. It's the full wedding, but for new weddings we will create 4 short 'stories' (arrival, ceremony, reception, depart) that the AWP will tweet every 20-30 minutes. This way it gives the wedding party, guests, attendees time to see the images and then chat about it. The bride and groom will still have vows, we will add them as an image with text. The same for those giving the toasts. This way everyone can see whats happening and the important parts of the wedding don't get overlooked because of all the tweeting. We want pals to tweet and have a good time, but we also want the bride and groom to be able to be heard...
We will still be dressing the wedding party and guests. We will still be creating all the images needed for the event. We will still have great music and noms and drinks. We will still have a great time!

And lastly, we are creating a Bridal Salon! Kim has been working hard on this to make it easier for the bride and groom to pick out the outfits, cake, flowers, etc for their special day.
We will be having a grand opening of the site soon!

I know you will enjoy the new format! We are looking forward to creating the weddings of our pals dreams!
