How to Choose a Wedding Party

That is the million dollar question when it comes to wedding planning.  If you have a large family, several close friends and are marrying into a large family as well, then you have your work cut out for you. Here are a few tips in preparing your list of wedding party attendants and bridesmaids: Prioritize what's important to you -  Is it important that all of your siblings are included?  What about your spouse's siblings?  If there are too many of them, why not consider cutting off your list at a certain age?  That will, hopefully, limit your selection.

Cathy & Dan, Valley Forge Casino Resort, Pictures By Todd, Philadelphia Wedding Photography

Every couple that I work with is unique in their own way, and discovering that uniqueness and capturing it in photos is one of the facets of wedding photography that I love most. The very first time I met Cathy and Dan at my studio it was obvious to me that having fun was something they took very seriously, and that nothing would get in the way of their wedding being lots of fun.  In fact, fun personal touches were spun into just about every detail of the day.  Crazy socks... fun, Boba Fett cufflinks... fun, super hero undershirts... fun, bridesmaid's robes fun.  Even the officiant was fun!...

Anyhow, I was thrilled when...
