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 =)
