In the early Summer this year, we had the opportunity to film Jana and Ryan’s wedding. The couple is not from Alberta nor from Canada but they’re from the US. They decided to get married in Banff and invited their beloved family and friends to witness their wedding in this beautiful place because this place is very important to them. The Fairmont Banff Springs was the ideal place to their big day. Having all their friends and family in their most loved most loved place was a blessing from heaven.  The view from The Terrace where they had their wedding ceremony is truly dazzling. Even the reception room was splashed in light with mountain sees out of each window. It was the ideal spot for their wedding party.


The Surprise Corner which is a 5-minute drive from the hotel is truly a surprise. It was a breath-taking spot for their wedding photos. It was a perfect sunny weather to see the mountains against the splendid blue skies made for some genuinely staggering sceneries.At Fairmont Banff Springs, wedding functions on the open air porch at The Banff Springs offer a magical perspectives of the mountains and the bow stream underneath for guests to admire.

The beautful glass roofed studio is attached outside of the Cascade Ballroom which is a good spot for having make-up for the bridal party in the morning and the cocktail bar area at the reception. The Alhambra room can situate up to a little over 300 guests as well. The Angus room at The Banff Springs is ideal for small number of guest for up to 30 guests.

Dress Shirts – Buying A Shirt For The Graduation Ball Or Wedding

Dress shirts ought to be a staple in every stylish mans wardrobe. Some men save dress shirts for special occasions, a party, wedding, or after work drinks with the boss. Others use them to add a bit of luxury to their everyday dress. In either case, finding the right style and quality to suit your personal taste can sometimes be difficult.

Dress shirts connote a man not afraid to be himself, or to subtly display his success in the world. On the high street, however, there is often only a choice between tacky, mass produced dress shirts and ones that would require you to re-mortgage your house. Luckily, the internet has a wide range of specialist designers, for all price ranges – from the historic Savile Row Company to new and innovative dress shirt designers.

Comfortable cotton is the most popular fabric used, though you will also find fine garments made with silk and man-made materials. The fabric is important when choosing a dress shirt. You should consider your purchase as an investment to last a number of years.

Furthermore, high quality fabric benefits both the look and the feel of a shirt. Poor quality fabric is often treated with chemicals, and can cause skin irritation. To avoid this, look for 100% cotton. A split yoke fabric is a sign of quality, as it allows the fabric to fall across the shoulders without puckering or creases.

Other dress shirt fabrics include Oxford Broadcloth, which is famous for its durability and prestige; Seersucker, which is cool in summer and designed to have a crumpled, lightweight feel; and Silk Linen, a compound fabric that combines smooth durability with breath-ability.

These days, women expect men to have as good a sense of style as they do! So it is important to get the right colour and fit for you, especially if you plan to wear the shirt at a wedding or some other flirting opportunity. That is one plus of the Internet – dress shirts, ties and other accessories are often categorised by colours that match. This takes all the effort out of buying an outfit!

If you do buy online remember that when you have made your choice and the garment arrives that the colours may look different and not suit you, so make sure that the website has a good returns policy.

If you can afford it you should consider having shirts customised to your requirements. Some people prefer fitted dress shirts, others a loose design. Buying a customised dress shirt also gives you power over sleeve length, collar shape and lets you match the best fabric with the best shape.

You should know your measurements before buying any clothing online. The most accurate way of doing this is to use a shirt you already have, rather than getting someone to measure your body. Lay it out flat and measure from a centre of the collar to the shoulder, then from the shoulder line to the cuff. Then you are ready to buy the perfect dress shirt.

How to Find Precious Flower Girl Dresses for Your Wedding

Preparing for your wedding is often an exhilarating task. You must decide on what type of flowers to use, wedding colors for the bridesmaids and ushers, and refreshments for the reception. You want everything to be perfect for that special day. But one detail that often gets put on the back burner is selecting a flower girl dress. Flower girl dresses are precious, frilly dresses worn by a little girl (usually between 3 and 8 years old) as she scatters flower petals down the aisle.

The flower girl is usually of some relation to the bride or groom, either a little sister, cousin, or niece. She gets all dressed up – like the grown-ups – and participates in the introduction to the bride using a basket full of flower petals. The key to finding a lovely flower girl dress is to consider the flower girl’s size and height, hair color, and also the actual wedding colors.

A Mini Bride’s Dress

Flower girl dresses are often miniature replicas of the bride’s wedding dress. A flower girl dress may also be a white dress with a sash that matches the colors of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Of course, it doesn’t have to be an exact match. The materials can be matched along with the decorative and design aspects of your wedding dress. For example, if your wedding dress has lace and white beads, find a flower girl dress that has the same. If your wedding dress comes with a bolero jacket, make sure the flower girl dress has a similar jacket. You can also closely match the sleeves, neckline, and style of the dress.

Colorful Flower Girl Dresses

Flower girl dresses can also be colorful to match the wedding colors. The key is to match the flower girl dress with the bridesmaids’ dresses and the flower petal colors, though the match doesn’t have to be exact. The flower girl dress may complement the other colors and look just as beautiful. If the wedding colors are lavender and white, for example, you might dress the flower girl in a lavender and white dress with lavender and white flower petals mixed in the basket. Or, use a lavender dress with a white basket and lavender flower petals. There are many combinations to choose from to create a lovely, captivating moment.

Consider the Flower Girl

Don’t get caught up in the moment and forget to consider who will be wearing the flower girl dress. Consider the little girl’s likes and how she feels about fancy dresses. You’ll want her to be comfortable and happy as she walks down the aisle, not frowning and complaining. The dress should complement her height and hair color. Also, have the dress sized for comfort and flexibility. It should be flexible and free flowing to make walking down the aisle as easy as possible. It should also be easy to move around in – for those emergency moments!

Where to Buy Flower Girl Dresses

You can have flower girl dresses custom made or buy them from the same shop where you’ll buy your wedding dress. You can even buy flower girl dresses online. On the Web, there are flower girl dress shops, children’s boutiques, and online stores for kids’ special occasion clothing. These offer a variety of styles and sizes to fit your needs and budget. They also usually sell other specialty items such as boys’ suits, girls’ communion dresses, or christening dresses.

Having just the right flower girl dress will bring plenty of “ahs” and “oohs” at your wedding. Use these ideas to create precious memories on your special day!

    Themed Wedding Shoes

    Tradition tells us that wedding shoes should be white, feminine, and simply beautiful. But times are changing, and with that, the trends on bridal shoes. A bride’s wedding shoes are not limited to stilettos, mules, pumps, and kitten heels in ivory and satin. Today, the added flexibility of themed weddings allows brides to express themselves with the footwear of their choice.

    The fairy tale theme is probably the most popular for brides who want to be different but remain on the safe side. Since most brides are treated like royalties on their wedding days, the fairy tale theme is highly appropriate. Fairy tale brides can play with their dress and shoes more than the classic, traditional bride. Common choices of fairy tale brides include ball gowns and princess dresses with matching tiaras. Wedding shoes are, by far, trickier. Stilettos are not appropriate since they look too modern for princesses, and ditto with sandals. A shoe suggestion for this theme would be dainty lace-up boots in a complementary color to the wedding dress. These will look fabulous with full skirts and sleeved dresses.

    Outdoor garden weddings are also popular. Gardens with summer themes allow for dresses with airy fabrics and materials. To complement the “airiness” of the bridal dress, shoes should be airy and lightweight like sandals. As too pointy heels can sink in the ground, flat or platform sandals are best. Jeweled slippers with beads and embellishments are also good choices. This way, the bride does not have to worry about sinking or balancing in uneven grounds. Wedding shoes for outdoor wedding should be comfortable and relaxed to complement the relaxed and summery setting.

    More adventurous brides prefer beach weddings. Beaches are usually chosen as venues if there are sentimental moments between the couple that happened in the beach like the first kiss or engagement. These are moments of surprise and the whole bridal ensemble should echo the excitement of those moments. Since the usual dresses for beach weddings show a lot of skin (think tube, haltered, short dresses), the wedding shoes should follow. Strapped heels are out because of the sand and this makes for an opportunity to use funky flip-flops and flat thong sandals. Embellished flip-flops and thong sandals with sparkly rhinestone details complement the beach vibe.

    Recently, travel-themed and ethnic weddings are getting popular with jetsetter couples. Popular inspirations are Japanese, Arabian, and African cultures. Wedding dresses and the decors of the venue evoke images from the theme. A geisha-inspired dress merits wooden platforms as wedding shoes as much as a Princess Jasmine-inspired outfit matches satin slippers.

    The gradual flexibility of wedding traditions allows for more personal and intimate weddings. There is no reason why brides should restrain their individual styles. Wedding shoes provide opportunities for little surprises and brides are welcome to take them. A wedding is, first and foremost, the bride’s day. She can proclaim her Keds as her wedding shoes and no one is allowed to object.

    The Proper Wedding Attire For Guests At A Wedding

    It is not that hard to choose the proper wedding attire to wear when going to a wedding. Most of us exert a lot of effort to look our best when going out, and going to a wedding is not any different from that. As some people would say it, just look better than your best when attending someone’s wedding.

    The Clues Are on the Invitation

    A question that may come to mind when choosing what wedding attire to wear is exactly that: What should you wear to a wedding? The answer to your question lies on the wedding invitation itself. If the wedding invitation you have in your hand is embossed and engraved and talks in a very formal language, it only goes to show that the wedding is a formal event. However, if the invitation is casually presented and written, it means that the wedding is a more casual and intimate affair.

    Another clue that will help you decide what wedding attire to deck yourself in when you show up at a wedding is the venue of the wedding. Church weddings with reception at a fancy restaurant always call for dressier wedding attire. If it is a wedding at a beach or a destination wedding, it is perfectly acceptable to wear something more laid back.

    Daytime or Evening?

    Perhaps a more important clue that you should pay attention to in deciding what wedding attire to wear is the time of the wedding. It spells a huge difference if the wedding is going to be held during the daytime or at night.

    For daytime weddings, you do not need to show up in formal wedding attire. It still depends on the degree of the formality of the wedding, but you can get away with wearing a suit in light colors or a stylish pastel dress. You can also choose a skirt-and-blouse outfit as long as it looks sleek and smart. Always go for light-colored clothes for daytime weddings and stay away from wearing black.

    As for evening weddings, formal wedding attire is usually the required dress code, but that still depends on whether the wedding is black-tie optional or strictly black tie. If the event is just black-tie optional, you can wear a dark suit or a cocktail dress.

    With strictly black tie weddings, the appropriate wedding attire is a formal ball gown. This is your chance to show off your style by wearing a floor-length evening dress, fancy evening wraps or shawls and formal jewelry. Your makeup should be a little more heavy and dramatic than how you usually wear it. Make sure, however that the wedding attire that you will get is something that fits well and feels comfortable for you. You can only pull off a formal look if you are comfortable in it. Besides, formal evening weddings call for a lot of dancing.

    Inappropriate Wedding Attire

    When it comes to choosing the proper wedding attire, there are literally thousands of dresses and suits that you can choose from when you shop. But no matter how pretty a dress or suit is, you should not buy it if:

    • It is white. White is a color that only the bride should wear at a wedding. Do not wear white to a wedding, whether it is daytime or evening.
    • Denims are a huge no-no, even in casual weddings.
    • Wear something modest and subdued. The bride is the star of the wedding and it is in very bad form if you show up in wedding attire that is flashier than the bride’s wedding gown. Also, if your dress is sleeveless or strapless, you should cover your shoulders with a jacket or a wrap.

    Always look your best in the proper wedding attire when you come to a wedding.

    The Perfect Costumes for a Medieval Wedding

    Perhaps she first caught your eye dressed in SCA garb, or maybe he looked dashing in his SCA armor. It could be that you were both wearing Renaissance costumes and enjoying a stroll through your local Faire when he captured your heart. Since then, time has passed and you’re ready to tie the knot. If you’re a fan of olden times, perhaps you’re thinking of having a medieval wedding.

    If so, you’re not alone. More couples than ever are celebrating the beginning of their life together in full Renaissance costumes. And even the guests are getting in on the act, playing their parts and dressing in period garb. If your nuptials will have a medieval flair, you need the proper clothing and accessories. Here are some guidelines to get you started.

    For Him

    One of the most romantic looks for the groom is a cotton lace-up wedding shirt. For extra elegance, look for a shirt with rows of tiny tucks going down the sleeves and below the lace-up front. The shirts usually come in natural, black, and white, so he can wear the color appropriate to the season and time of day of your wedding. If he prefers a button front or you want a greater selection of colors, you can find a wedding shirt replete with tiny tucks that has three buttons going down the neckline. These shirts are often available in navy, grey, brown, mustard, teal, plum, wine, and forest green – one of which is sure to go with your wedding color scheme.

    As for pants, depending on the season and time of day, you can opt for long twill breeches or knee-length twill breeches. The former are baggy, and usually feature both a button front and a drawstring at the waist, as well as drawstring cuffs. As the name implies, knee-length twill breeches have cuffs that tie just below the knee. You can typically buy them in a wide variety of colors, such as royal blue, tan, black, burgundy, or forest green.

    For Her

    For the Renaissance bride, it starts with the chemise. There are a wide variety of styles from which to choose, but one that’s popular features sheer fabric that has demi sleeves and a sweetheart rose at the center of the neckline. For a more formal touch, there are chemises that feature extraordinarily long, hanging sheer sleeves and a gathered neckline. Similarly, a chemise with metallic gold trim at the square neckline is eye-catching.

    As for your gown, you can go with something as simple as a cotton twill surcoat or as ornate as an Irish dress with a fleur-de-lis brocade bodice. You may even want to create your own gown; if so, there are numerous patterns from which you can choose.

    For Both of You

    If you’re planning a medieval wedding, you’ll also need the proper accessories. Dragons symbolize passion, monogamy, and love, so incorporating dragons into the ceremony or reception is wonderfully appropriate. Perhaps you’d like to wear a dragon double heart pendant, or you would like to use two dragon goblets for your toast.

    If you’re having a traditional ceremony, you’ll most likely need handfasting cords, which will be used to bind you and your beloved’s hands together with each promise you make to one another.

    With the right planning, there are many ways to incorporate Renaissance themes and costumes into your special day. Celebrate with gusto!

    Planning Colors for Your Wedding: Wedding Dresses, Flowers, and More!

    Dreaming about your wedding is one thing; planning it is another. From wedding dresses to cakes and tuxedos to flowers – every aspect of your wedding must be carefully planned to “fall in place” on the big day! If you’ve been to one wedding or several, you probably realize the importance of wedding colors. Everything about the wedding is planned according the colors the bride chooses. So, here’s a quick guide to help you plan your wedding colors.

    Choose the Right Colors for Your Wedding Dresses

    Many brides use their favorite colors for their wedding dresses – pink, red, fuchsia, burgundy, plum, mauve, purple, or blue. But before you choose colors, see if you can’t find some photos of various weddings from the past. Look at a variety of color patterns and combinations before making your choice. You might find colors that you like much better than your usual favorites.

    Consider how the colors of your wedding dresses will look with other colorful items once it is all put together for the big wedding day. The bridesmaid dresses will be matched with flowers, tuxedos, mother of the bride dresses, flower girl dresses, accessories, and even the reception decor.

    Wedding Dresses with a Touch of Color

    A growing trend is to add a touch of color to the bride’s wedding gown. This is perfect for the bride who wants more than the traditional wedding gown. Some brides have color sprinkled throughout their wedding gown with embroidery. The gorgeous embroidery patterns come to life on the wedding dress when color highlights are added. These are usually available in a variety of colors painted on an ivory white wedding gown.

    Test Wedding Color Combinations

    Don’t be afraid to match unusual colors before making your choice. Some color combinations might surprise you. For example, not many would choose bright peach, bright yellow and white, but these are actually beautiful when coordinated together in wedding flower arrangements with yellow dresses! Try out a variety of combinations to find the right wedding colors for you.

    Choose Colors that Complement You

    It’s your special day. Choose colors that complement your hair and skin tone. You’ll want colors that make you look wonderful on your wedding day. If you normally look great in red, then you’ll probably look fantastic amidst red decor and red bridesmaid dresses. Maybe you can even add some red embroidery colors to your wedding gown. Whatever color suits you should work fine for the wedding.

    Other Considerations

    Other things to consider before choosing your wedding colors include the colors of the church or building where the wedding will be held as well as the reception hall, the types of flowers available for that time of year (if using real ones), and the availability of wedding dresses in those colors.

    Once you choose colors for your wedding dresses and flowers, you’re ready to start planning the wedding. To save time, you can find a wide variety of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and even prom dresses online. Be sure to choose the colors you love. After all, it is your special day!

    Choosing The Perfect Bridal Gown

    Calgary Wedding Videographer

    It is not unusual for a bride to be quite picky when it comes to choosing the bridal gown to wear at her wedding. As cynical as the world may get when it comes to weddings, the truth is that a woman becomes a bride only once in her life. Her wedding day is the day when a woman should appear to be at her absolute best. To achieve that, she must wear a bridal gown that is just perfect for her.

    The emotional strings that a bridal gown holds for a woman sometimes make the task of finding the perfect one a very daunting task. Many brides get frazzled with the number of decisions they need to make just with choosing what bridal gown to wear, let alone the other details that she must attend to in arranging her wedding. Thankfully, some carefully planning can turn the difficult task of finding the perfect bridal gown into a very enjoyable one.

    If you are in the market for a bridal gown, then you should start looking for the right dress at least six months before your wedding day. It takes time to choose a bridal gown that will suit you the best from among hundreds and hundreds of styles and designs available to you. Moreover, getting a bridal gown specially made for you can take four to six months to accomplish, and you need to allow a little more time for possible alterations.

    You can start your search by compiling pictures of bridal gowns that you like. You can download these pictures from the Internet or cut them out from bridal magazines. If you fancy the bridal gown that your mother, your sister, your friend or even your grandmother wore to her wedding, get a picture of it. Put all the pictures you have collected in a file so you can have something to consult when choosing the style of your own bridal gown.

    When choosing the style of your bridal gown, there are a couple of things that you need to consider. First is that the theme and formality of your wedding ceremony, as well as where the ceremony shall be held. Goodness knows how uncomfortable and out of place you would be at your own wedding if you are wearing a heavy bridal gown with a long veil and train and the wedding is held at a beach.

    If your wedding is a formal evening affair, your bridal gown should be a floor-length gown with a train. You may also need to wear gloves. If it is a semi-formal event, whether it is to be held in the evening or during the daytime, your bridal gown should be something that reaches your ankles. You can have a veil with that gown, but no train. If your wedding is going to be a day affair, or if it is your second wedding, you can wear a long dress or a short dress without a veil. You can also wear a suit with a skirt and dress it up with a smart-looking hat.

    The second thing that you must consider when choosing the style of your bridal gown is that your gown must flatter the shape of your body, embellishing its finer points and hiding or camouflaging its not-so-fine points. It should also be something that you are comfortable wearing. Here are a few suggestions on what style could flatter your body:

    1. If you are tall and if you have a slim figure, there is no need to worry. You can wear a bridal gown of just about any style.
    2. If you have an hourglass figure, meaning your bust and your hips are in proportion and you have a defined waist, you could go for a V-neck bridal gown with an A-line skirt. The V-neck of your bodice can accentuate the fullness of your bust while an A-line skirt can look poofy enough without making your hips look too wide.
    3. If you have a pear-shaped figure, meaning your body is bottom-heavy and your hips are wide, you should wear a bridal gown with a few extra details on the bodice and an A-line skirt. The detailing on your bodice, be it beadings or embroidery, will draw the eyes to your bust while de-emphasizing your hips. An empire-style gown with a draping skirt would look nice too.
    4. If you are short and with a very slight figure, you need a bridal gown that will create the illusion of a fuller figure. You could go with an off-shoulder dress with a shawl-like collar and a skirt that flares out from below the middle of your thighs.
