The Ultimate Valentines’ Day Wedding

Just another day for me, making my regular stop at the store to pick up those few items that I forgot to get yesterday (plus whatever else catches my eye on the shelf)….and I find myself asking (as I do every year)…why is it that on Jan 1st the Valentines’ Day stuff comes out? ….I know its only a week away now, but at that point (beginning of the New Year) There is still 6 weeks until February 14th and it is not like you have to shop for weeks to get the right gift! I guess I should be used to it by now though, its’ not like they haven’t done...

This one is for all those Mothers out there that don’t understand why their Daughter/ Son doesn’t want to keep their Special Day ‘Traditional’ and ‘Proper’ just like they did. Here’s a couple of reasons that might (hopefully) help you understand our thoughts on Tradition: -Today, couples want a Day of their own- They want to make decisions based on their own feelings, belief, and desires….We like things to be unique and memorable- Not just a ‘typical wedding’ like everyone else has had. -I’ll be honest here-We aren’t very good at being told...

2014 Top Wedding Trends: The Great Gatsby/ Roaring ‘20s Theme

Currently, icons of pop culture (and all of us “normal folk”) are becoming completely obsessed with the ‘20s. And why wouldn’t we be? – It seems like the past decade has been full of violence, heated debates, and an economic recession…Sometimes it’s nice to dream about prosperity and economic growth; a time of fun and happiness- That’s just what the 1920s was all about…The American Dream! I cannot think of a better way to celebrate one of life’s greatest moments than with a theme centered on a hit novel that magnificently epitomizes life in...
