How To Create the Perfect Slideshow for Your Wedding Reception

Published by WicksnCandlesticks at 3:26 PM

I have wanted to use Google Slides for a while and I finally made sometime in my schedule to use it. This week I downloaded the app to my iPad and it took me one entire day to make my slides for my business.  I am very particular with the design aspect and the content of the slideshow, so my slides would take a little longer to make versus someone who just wants to have photos to upload and attach a music file to use for the slideshow.  

Wedding Reception Slideshows have been around for years in the industry, but some people think it is difficult to do for the wedding reception because it is not cost-effective for their wedding reception. I like the option of GoogleSlides for the slide show rather than just having it read from a file.  You can provide this link for your guests to watch after the reception and then also give permissions to wedding guest to have access to the Google File Photos on the Google Drive.  

I have provided a simple solution for wedding couples to create an affordable slideshow, but before I get started I would like to suggest some words of wisdom. Please do not give this project to one of your wedding guests or wedding party members to do because they may leave their post and not take care of the slideshow.  In the end, you will be disappointed if that happens at your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner. However, I do suggest that you hire your photographer for your wedding reception because he will need to do this project himself or work closely with your DJ to make this effectively work for your wedding reception. Please be sure to add this into your contract with each wedding professional. If you failed to do so, please request a revision to your wedding contact.

Here is what you need to get started to have your own slideshow for your wedding reception:

1) Download Google Slides to Your iPad


2) Have your Wedding Photographer must have dual-memory card slots in the camera he uses for your Wedding Reception

3) After the photos are taken by the photographer,  he/she will transfer the images from the dual-memory card to Google Drive


4) Your photographer will sort those reception images on your iPad.  (Note: A jpeg image would be fine, but have your photographer determine the screen resolution).


5) Add your images to the Google Slides for the Slideshow. You have the option to select the ‘Fade’ option to apply to the slideshow to fade the animation between each photo


6) Create Your Final Slideshow


7) Connect your Projector to Your PC to Show the Google Slides (Read Information For Detailed Instructions or Watch the Video Instructions from YouTube website):


•Option 1:  Connect iPod to Projection
•Option 2: Connect iPad to Projection
•Option 3: Connect iPad to Projection Video

Download Your Free Reception Photo Checklist
Wedding Reception Photo Checklist


Items You Need for Project:
VGA Cable
VGA Adapter
Projector
2-Dual Memory Cards

Wifi Connection
Wedding Photography Printable(Uploading by Tomorrow)

Note:  You can purchase the VGA Cable, VGA Adapter and Projector from places like TigerDirect, NewEgg or Best Buy.

I hope you found this information useful.  Please let us know how you used Google Slides at your wedding reception.  I would love to hear from you!

Simple & Easy Icebreaker Game For Your Wedding Reception

Published by WicksnCandlesticks at 8:31 PM



Icebreakers are a wonderful way to start off that wedding reception.  For example, ‘Guess How Many Kisses Are in the Jar’ game would be an excellent choice because it would be a natural talking point for everyone if your guests see a huge jar filled with Hershey’s Kisses.  Your wedding guests would naturally gravitate over to the table to see the huge jar filled with Hershey Kisses too, especially those Chocolate Lovers!


You may wonder where to place the game and a few ideas that
come to mind would be the gift table, guestbook table or the escort card table. Whatever you choose, your wedding guests need to have a good visual and be able to find the table easily as they enter the room at the venue.  Be sure to decorate the table in either your wedding colors or your wedding theme, but keep the decorations to a minimum at that table.  Other ideas include putting flowers or LED tea light candles in a decorative glass votive on the table.

Keep in mind that if there are people with food allergies, you can always substitute it for another type of candy, but still use the labels and the signage can be changed.   Please make sure you review your R.S.V.P’s Inserts and note if there are guests that have food allergies to chocolate and make sure your note that on your R.S.V.P. Checklist, so it can be easily substituted for another type of sweet treat.  To download your free printables, click the documents below.

How to Unlock Your Happy Place with Planner Stickers

Published by WicksnCandlesticks at 10:57 PM


As many of my readers know, I plan wedding and events along with selling my handmade products on my website.  This keeps me very busy, so you might wonder why in the world do I need “happy place?”  Unbelievably, everyone needs a happy place!  For me, it is a place where I can go to escape and relax the daily stressors in life. 

Designing and printing my stickers for my planner on while sitting on my deck in the spring and summer is awesome and it provides my skin vitamin D from the sun.  The other happy place is walking my Yorkshire Terrier Sasha the Dog at the beach or reading on the beach or my deck.  
Some people like retail therapy while others enjoy art therapy. Either way, you need a break and step away from the office to do something you enjoy.  I believe everyone needs those moments in life that makes you feel better and it helps me contribute to my obsession about printables, stickers, using my paper and online organizational planner.  This helps me keep track of everything that is going on in my business life that is my website, wedding planning and event planning, social media marketing, marketing, web development and graphic design.  With everything I do, I could easily become overwhelmed if I did not unlock that happy place each day!    

Can you name three happy places where you go to escape and relax? If one of your happy places is printing printables and stickers, this will make you happy and put you in your happy place!  I just designed new Beauty and Spa Printable Stickers today!  To download your free printable stickers, please click the link below.

The Ultimate Makeup Kit List

Published by WicksnCandlesticks at 11:11 PM


I attended our first Live Beauty Week with Tonya at Elite Secrets via Facebook!  I learned so many things from her Beauty Week like the makeup techniques I was doing all wrong, but there were and some makeup techniques I was doing right! 

In regards to makeup application, I had no idea there are three primers for your skin, which are eye, face and lip primer.  I will not go any further with everything I learned from a professional makeup artist, but I will share tips on how to organize your nail and makeup kit and hair accessories. 

After attending her Elite Secrets beauty week, I thought about organizing and take inventory of my caboodle makeup and nail kits and hair accessories.  I pulled out her kit out from my nightstand that evening, took it out to the kitchen table and reviewed my makeup cheat sheet that has all my hair, makeup and nail products and accessories listed.  





The result of the organization was that I had tons of cosmetics to dispose of in the trash, which was unfortunate and costly.  I decided right then to take charge of the moment to
re-organize everything.

What I Designed for My Storage: 
• Disposable Labels (Freebie)
• Makeup Cleaning Labels (Freebie)
Traveling Makeup Kit Necessities
Ultimate Hair Brush Guide
• 12 Makeup Brush You Need
(Sourced:Cosmo)


Additional Labels & Printables
(With Newsletter Subscription):

Applying Makeup, Beauty Appointments, Makeup Artist Checklist, Hairstyling Products, Makeup Tools,  Storage Drawer Labels, Makeup Brushes Infographic and Ultimate Hair Brush Guide Infographic.

Extras:
Hairstylist Forms, Makeup Forms, Nail Forms and Beauty Stickers.

Confessions of a Librocubicularist

Published by WicksnCandlesticks at 11:38 PM

Books come in a variety of shapes, sizes and genres.  There are many book styles available; such as, paperback, hardcover or eBooks. However, I must share this secret obsession with you…did you know that I am a Librocubicularist? I am indeed a Librocubicularist and you are probably wondering what a Librocubicularist might be, right? The Urban Dictionary describes it as ‘ (n).  A person who reads in bed’ and pronounced lib-ro-kyoo-bi-kyoo-la-rist.  

While my husband sleeps at night, I am up until 2 a.m. reading tons of eBooks from weddings, events, law to marketing books.  I read anywhere from 50 to 100 books a week or more. One of my favorite places to find eBooks would be on Pinterest.  I love Pinterest and you can find tons of free eBooks to read on their website.  If you need to find specific book genres, just type it in the search criteria and the results will produce an eBook for you. 

There are some other excellent places I found eBooks at like Google eBookstore, Open Library, Google Play, Smashwords and Goodreads.  I just get excited writing about the tonight's finds, which are Smashwords and Goodreads!   For example, if you are planning a wedding, I found a couple wonderful books on Smashwords I will be downloading tonight and they are ‘Rings on a Shoestring’ and ‘Planning Your Wedding Flowers: Secrets and Tips for Budget Wedding Flowers.”  

And do not forget your local library because there are Free eBooks and eMagazines available to read too.  Here are some places I have found Free articles or eMagazines.  The Flipboard App and website offers a variety of free articles and save to your personal magazine.  Another app to utilize would be Pocket. You can save directly from your browser or from apps like Twitter, Flipboard, Pulse and Zite into your Pocket.  The best part about Pocket would be that you do not need an internet connection to connect to read your saved articles or videos. 

The Best eMagazines that are available to read Free and Paid Subscriptions would be Magzter, Joomag, Google Currents (Newsstand), Scribd and Issuu. With all these free resources for eBooks and eMagazines, I believe you will be set with reading material for a while.  As it has been said, "A Book is Gift You Can Open Again and Again."
