Nuptials are made over New rings by the Newlyweds who are happily wed and sometimes a little Nutty after planning.

Wedding dresses are like snowflakes – almost every one has it’s own unique details and touches. One factor to consider is the neckline – different body shapes can suit different necklines.

    As a wedding photographer who has seen many body types in many dresses, I have to disagree with strapless dresses being ideal for girls with large busts. Generally these girls (and I am one, so I can vouch for it) have a little too much going on upstairs to be held up without some sort of strap, and the dress tends to sag and get dangerously low. Most well-endowed girls spend the whole day pulling the top of their dress up over and over, which is very unattractive. I think the square neckline with thin straps is much better suited, as it gives the look of strapless with the support of straps.
