A friend recently sent me a link. Earlier this month WeddingBee talked about the new bridal game brides (and non brides!) were slowly becoming addicted to. With all the comments I just had to check it out!

As the new wedding assistant you are introduced to the bride’s wedding album, where she invites you to help her on her journey.

You are then sent on a treasure hunt through the usual bridal haunts- the beauty salon, chocolate shop, florist and so on. You have to look hard for that piece of ginger! (the list gets wackier!) and you must find all the items before the shop shuts!

Every now an then (as in every wedding planning journey) an emergency occurs – your dad spills coffee over your wedding dress (in shock at the price!) and so you must find all the items on the list again, except the shop has been turned upside down. If you succeed you’ll get a reward.

A memory game and choose-your-own-story game both round out the multitude of hours this game will waste when you need some time out!

Dream Day Wedding is available for a 60 minute free trial from NineMSN Games and the full version is available for purchase for $29.95

Apart from the candid moments, I love the little detail shots by photographers. These capture the details you’ve thought so hard about – I’m particularly fond of shoes shots, being a shoe lover myself, I adore the different styles a photographer uses for shoes!

Some of my favourite shoe shots:

James Day of James Day Photography captured these uniquely coloured shoes hanging off a bathroom sink

Vincent Lai of Vincent Lai Photography captures the tiniest detail on this bride’s shoe.

Vanessa Hall of Wildberry Photography has a different take on the traditional shoe shot.

Cato and Pade Photography show the best way to display a bride’s bare feet are in her special shoes!

Brett Odgers of Brett Odgers Photography makes the gemstones shine on these stunning shoes.

Benedict Morgan of Benedict Morgan Photography reminds us not to forget the little people with this adorable shot.

The monotonous tones and flowers make this shot by the team at Hands on Photography a perfect picture.

Alex Pasquali of Alex Pasquali Photography creates a work of art from what may otherwise be a plain bridal shoe.

Nerida McMurray of Nerida McMurray Photography does the traditional ‘bridal detail’ shot beautifully.

Finally, Tim Hughes of Tim Hughes Photography creates a stunning photo using the contrast of stone with a pair of simple but stunning shoes.
