There were so many great wedding ideas at the wedding , I loved the matchbox car wedding giveaway.
I showed a couple of photos from Micheal and Jennifer’s destination wedding earlier , here are some more photos. It was a scorching hot day in Stockholm and the famous Volvo boat race was on so Stockholm was packed I started Mornington Hotel in Ostermalm , where we did the get ready shots. The church was Brännkyrka , Micheals parents were married. The reception held at very popular Bröllops venue Sjöfartshusetfestvåning in Gamla Stan next to the Royal Palace.
As a Stockholm wedding photographer I feel blessed, Stockholm is such a great backdrop for photographing weddings. One of the best places is the Modern Musuem , my last wedding was there . Catherine and Sam from Canada eloped to get married here in Sweden, the were so cool stories along the way . We started at the Grand Hotel Stockholm another of my favourite venues I have always loved this staircase.

Here is a interesting look at wedding trends and statistics and thoughts for getting married in 2010 and planning your wedding in stockholm in sweden.
Now is the middle of the 2009 wedding season, but I know that new brides and grooms are already thinking ahead to 2010 and even 2011. December is still the most popular month of the year to get engaged, booking wedding photographers in January.
Interestingly , show that seven in 10 engaged women consulted bridal resources before their fiance ever popped the question. The most researched item among brides-to-be is the wedding dress. According to Brides.com, the average wedding dress costs well.
Additionally, 51 percent of brides-to-be have spent time researching financing for their wedding. . Nearly 3 in 5 engaged women expect to use a credit card to help pay for wedding expenses.
Now, only 20 percent of brides’ parents pay for the wedding themselves, with 8 percent of brides footing the entire bill.
The reception in the US is42 percent of wedding costs, with an average price tag of $11,868. With a wedding in sweden I think the percent will be way higherA great trend the groom is working on the engagement ring. The current average cost of an engagement ring is $6,348, a 43 percent increase over 2006’s average engagement ring cost of $4,435. Wow!
The typical groom is just thinking about a ring and a honeymoon.
Statistics show brides are also dreaming of where to have this wedding and what their wedding photos will look like . Nearly half of brides (48 percent) have their ceremony in the city or town where they currently live, with 30 percent returning to their hometown for the wedding.
Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular, with one in 10 engaged couples going off to a resort-type setting.
here are so fun stats
Majority of weddings still have a maid matron of honor, and one out of 10 include a man of honor. I still havent had a man of honour, Most wedding parties have a best man with 6 percent having a “best woman.” yep i have had a best woman … and a best kid and dog
Throwing rice at the bride and groom is now only used at 7 percent of all weddings, flower petals the most popular.
The average wedding party features four groomsmen, that also serve as ushers, and five bridesmaids, with their average dress costing $126. Sixty-five percent of wedding parties also include a flower girl, and 58 percent feature a ring bearer.
A typical wedding will average around 155 guests, but will be lower for destination weddings about 90 guests. Source: by Brides
