With your big day coming up, I am sure at times you want the day to come sooner than later! When I was waiting for my wedding day, I felt so restless. I just wanted to marry the man of my dreams and begin living happily ever after! But it is important to cherish this special time in your relationship. You are only engaged once, so live it up and have fun planning your wedding!
Fun Tip No. 1 Take Your Time
It can be easy to rush through the details of planning your wedding. But be sure that you do enough research and think enough about what your vision is before you proceed in the planning process. It will make the planning process run more smoothly. Send reminders of how many days are left until your wedding date to your fiance. Begin a wedding day countdown. This can be a fun way to get you and your fiance excited about your big day!
Happy Halloween Ghouls and Boys!
It is that time a year again when the zombies, werewolves, witches and vampires come out to play, trick or treat and even get MARRIED!
In honor of the holiday, I have created collages of SPOOKtacular ideas fit for Halloween weddings. These ideas will make your eyes POP with amazement! Maybe some of these ideas will inspire you to vow "'til death do you part"!
It is a strange thing to think that you could add anything more to wedding planning. It is fun, exciting and at times a bit crazy finalizing the ceremony, music, photography, desserts, decorations, etc. But recently, something new joined the ranks in planning.
The latest trend is...drum roll please...proposal planning!!!
Forget wedding planners! Marriage proposal planners have been popping up everywhere from places like New York and Los Angeles to international locations like the United Kingdom.
Many sources have claimed that men, and sometimes women, who want to propose but are flummoxed about how to go about popping the question in a memorable manner, so they seek the advice of proposal planners.
Ugh I don’t have time for a history lesson right now; I have a wedding to plan.
Trust me when I tell you that this will catch your attention. I know it did for me! I’m sure by now I have piqued your interest and you are waiting for me to reveal what tradition I have been hinting at…I guess it is time to tell you. The tradition goes like this:
Something old, something new,
something borrowed, something blue
and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
I have always known about this tradition but honestly I can say that I have never heard of the final line. Apparently, this tradition originated from the Victorian Era.
What is a sixpence you may ask? I am more than happy to share that with you! A sixpence is a coin that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967. It was made of silver and worth six pennies. Because of the mention of a sixpence in the rhyme, we can safely say that it originated in Britain.
This rhyme is not just words people associate with brides, grooms and their wedding day. Each “something” is meant to represent good luck for the bride! If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. Here is a little more about each item:
I have worked with many destination wedding brides over the past several years, and just as it happens with local events, there are tricky situations to work through and tough decisions to be made. Should the bride and groom pay for some of the wedding party's expenses? If so, how much? What if someone wants to bring a guest who was not originally invited? Should activities be planned for each day? There is so much to consider! The toughest part about all of it is that there's not one right or wrong answer.
One site I recently came across, Martha Stewert Weddings, posed some great questions pertaining to destination weddings in particular. I thought I'd share some of the common ones with you, along with my two-cents regarding each Q & A. They're definitely not going to be the 'magic answers' for everyone but at least hopefully they provide some guidelines and food-for-thought!
The monogram is a well-known symbol of identity. People generally recognize it as initials or a combined set of letters. What many people don’t know is how the monogram came to be and the proper way to create one.
