It’s a Carnival!


Still trying to decide on a wedding theme? What about a carnival theme! This theme is hitting big among brides and is a great way to add entertainment to your big day! Carnivals are fun for everyone, even adults!

With carnival as a theme you can’t go wrong! So many ideas can be incorporated into this theme that you will only be limited by your imagination. Mustaches, umbrellas, huge lollipops, cotton candy, elephant ears, rides, and so much more! You could even have entertainment in the form of live actors dressed up as clowns, carnies, fire blowers, ect. 

Don’t be afraid to incorporate your own personal touches here and there too, especially in the little things. Like cute pictures of you and your fiancé around the card table. 

Congratulations on your engagement!

A Thousand Words Photography ~Boudoir Photography for Your New Husband!




 Trying to think of a gift for your newlywed man? Boudoir shots are a great present that every man is sure to love! Many brides are posing in sexy and some risqué pictures to present to their husbands on their wedding day. Every woman thinks of wearing that nursing outfit or extremely reveling lingerie ensemble but not all of us can do it in person! However getting airbrushed and professionally photographed in these outfits is much more appealing because all of those concerns and flaws can be eliminated!
 Many photographers offer this as part of your wedding day photos. If they don’t, most will offer to add it on, many times at a discounted price because you’re already working with them. There are so many options to choose from. Depending on what your hubby loves almost any fantasy picture can be created! Don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone, a lot of the time if you do you will see that what you are doing for your husband in the pictures may come true in real life! No matter what you look like or your range of comfort every photographer will work with you to create your perfect Boudoir Shot(s) for your husband!
Here are some ideas for those of you who need some inspiration!

·         Sexy Bride- long white veil with sexy bra and panties in white…red lipstick is your friend in this shot!
·         Black and White- with black lingerie and dark eye makeup a black and white shot is unbelievably sexy and helps to create depth and lust in the picture.
·         Sports Shot- for those of you who have a husband who is obsessed with sports this shot is for you! Just wear his favorite team’s jersey with matching color underwear (thong or full coverage will work). Men love women in sportswear for some reason. Lol
·         Classic Housewife- we all know men love a woman who cooks and cleans. The classic red and white polka dot shot with a pie in one hand and the broom in the other is a great shot!
·         Wigs ect.- Don’t be afraid to act out other time periods! The 50’s pin up girl in sexy high rise tights and bra or the 70’s peace sign drawings all over your body in place of clothing is a fun and exciting way to make these photos even more memorable! Wigs will help act these out so that you aren’t limited!
·         Partial Coverage- don’t be afraid to use your hands to cover yourself instead of clothing this creates the illusion of being naked without actually showing it in the photos.
·         Full Coverage- being fully covered is sometimes just as sexy as being completely bare. It leaves him wondering. These photos are best done with sexy full coverage lingerie.

Get out there ladies and show him what you’re workin’ with!!

Are You Mad for Mad Libs?

            As kids one of our favorite games to play was Mad Libs. Hilarious sentences and scenarios created by our friends. So why not include it in your wedding! Mad Libs (a.k.a Wed-Libs!) are a great way to get your guests acquainted with one another during cocktail hour or even as they are entering the reception hall for dinner! Especially if you have “dead” time where there is not a lot for your guests to do while you are taking pictures, changing, ect.
            There are so many versions of Mad Libs that the list is just about endless. Another great thing is that you can also create them yourself! If you are a DIY bride and love to get creative this is a great way to add your personality in a fun and silly way! However, if you don’t want to come up with your own here are some great wedding/ party themed Mad Libs for you!

1.      Have You Ever
2.      Would You Take Me on a Date
3.      The Proposal
4.      Honeymoon Plans
5.      Bachelorette Party
6.      Bachelor Party
7.      How They (WE) Met
8.      Bride and Groom Vows
9.      At the Wedding
10.  I Spy With My Little Eye

Make sure to put together silly sentences that fit each theme/title. Then leave out your blank spaces for the guests to put in nouns, verbs, adverbs, etc. If you want, have your guests leave them in the card box so that you and your hubby can read them later for a good laugh!

Congratulations on your engagement!
