Wedding Dates

Want to know the best ways to save money when picking your wedding date?

Plan your wedding in off-peak times- this can save you 20-30%. Discuss with your favorite venue and they will give you date options and you will see the savings add up. My friend saved over $2000 by having her wedding 1 weekend later than they were thinking. Wait til June in Florida and you can get a better deal.

Also, choose any day other then Saturday and you will see the savings as well.  Check out Friday night and Sunday rates. I have seen more Sunday mid afternoon weddings lately- might be a new trend for cost savings and then the wedding does not run all through the night either. This will give your guest the ability to go to work on Monday.

Happy Wedding Planning..Enjoy!

Rose Petals

Rose petals can really make a statement at your wedding. A great idea is to buy roses in bulk yourself( think local flower shop that will give you a deal) or even BJ's, Sams or Costco. You and friends can pull the petals apart the day before and keep them stored in the fridge in plastic bags. Have your friends place petals on the tables as well as down the aisle a few hours before the wedding- You will save a bundle and know what your are getting..Enjoy!

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth ENGAGED

Miley Cyrus never thought she would fall in love on a movie set- but then she met Liam Hemsworth. The couple have been dating for 3 years. She is only 19 and now they are ENGAGED.

Liam Hemsworth is an Australian heartthrob and everyone know Miley Cyrus. I even watched "Hanna Montanta". Liam was just in "The Hunger Games" and Miley is working on her next album. I am sure this couple will have a long engagement and let's see if this last.  I hope they get a Prenup!!! Congrats to another Hollywood Couple...Enjoy!

Bachelor Pad 2 Holly and Blake MARRIED

Holly Durst and Blake Julian got married on Saturday in front of 115 guests. If you are watching the current season of the Bachelorette, then I am sure you have heard this couple met on last summer's Bachelor Pad 2. They became engaged shortly after the show and we have watched their relationship grow. They got married at The Cliffs Country Club in South Carolina with many casts members in attendance.

I know a few of you are still sad that Holly did not end up with Michael- but I am happy to see her happy with Blake. Enjoy!

2011 Cost of a Wedding


The Knot gave a great breakdown of what the average wedding cost:

The average cost for a 150-person wedding is about $25,000 (higher in urban areas).
  • Here is a basic breakdown of what you can expect to pay:
    Reception: 48%-50%
    Ceremony: 2%-3%
    Attire: 8%-10%
    Flowers: 8%-10%
    Entertainment/Music: 8%-10%
    Photography/Videography: 10%-12%
    Stationery: 2%-3%
    Wedding Rings: 2%-3%
    Parking/Transportation: 2%-3%
    Gifts: 2%-3%
    Miscellaneous: 8%
  • To avoid stress, allot about 5% of your budget for a "just-in-case" fund.
  • If you're paying for your honeymoon yourselves, remember to budget for that as well.
Have fun planning and congrats to all the Summer Brides. How much did your wedding costs?

Creating your own Vows

Are you considering writing your own wedding vows?

I was at a wedding this weekend and the couple wrote their own vows. Haven't been to a wedding like that in a while. Listening to their vows were so romantic. Here are some questions to think about when writing your vows:

What is the single greatest thing about the person you are going to marry?

When did you know that they were the ONE?

What does marriage mean to you?

Have all your dreams come true? Where do you see your lives in 10 and 50 years?

What quality does your partner bring out most in you?

What is your most favorite memory of your partner?

Good luck writing your own, but I think it is well worth it. Having a videographer at your wedding will make this more special as you can replay, replay and replay each anniversary..Enjoy!

Color Scheme

Wedding Colors

The colors you choose for your wedding day set the style and tone for your entire event. You need to think of your color palette as you select your attendants attire, your decor, the cake, flowers, table linens, guest bags and favors as well as your invitations! Your favorite color might be green- but you need to take everything into consideration before you choose your scheme.

Some key things to think about are:

1-What time of year are you getting married?
2-Where are your having your ceremony and reception? Outside/inside?
3- Are you having a Formal or Informal wedding? Think black tie more formal colors!

What color scheme did you choose? Enjoy!

Save the Dates


Are you planning on sending out Save the Dates! I just got an Adorable Save the Date from a college friend 6 months early because they are having a destination wedding.

When creating your list to send out Save the Dates- remember these are the same people you will be sending wedding invites to. Start by creating a spreadsheet: Put in names, address, children, meal choices and a RSVP box. These pre wedding cards will give you a better idea of who can and can't come and is a nice gesture for your guests to start saving the date in their calendar. Remember everyone is busy and planning is key- especially when your guests need to start planning their travel plans.

You can also set up a website to share your wedding story and list details about your special day. Weddingchannel.com is the best.

Good luck- now you just need to decide on what kind of Save the Dates to send- magnets, calendars, postcards or your own creative idea..Enjoy!

Girls Nite In Parties

The week before or even the night before your wedding, is a great time to get together with just your bridesmaids and do a nice Girls Nite In Party. A few ideas are to have a beauty party with totally pampering. My friend had a masseuse come to her house and give each girl a 15 minute massage as a nice thank you gift. What a great idea. You can also have someone come and do mani/pedi.

A great way to stay in and all unwind together- Just you girls.You should be able to score a nice deal if you book in advance and also the more people you have the better discount you should be able to get. I have seen deals for spa parties for 6 people for under $200. You know how pricey salons can be- so score a bargain as it is after hours and everyone could use a little extra income. Work a deal girl!!

Have any of you attended a Girls Nite In Party? Share your stories =)

Celebrity Wedding

Actress Drew Barrymore got engaged over the holidays to Will Kopelman. She now is the proud owner of a four-carat radiant cut diamond engagement ring by Graff.

This is the third marriage for Drew and I hope she doesn't change her name to Kopelman..lol. No wedding date has been set and the couple have been dating for about a year. Enjoy!
