Wedding day focus: Keep your number one priority in mind & heart


Carefully chosen flowers match the color of the napkins, flawless makeup looks great for all your photo close-ups, and everyone in your bridal party arrives on time for your ceremony at the wedding venue of your dreams. Every bride wants her months of planning and preparation to unfold into a perfect day free of hiccups and embarrassment, and every groom just wants his bride to be happy. With so many elements falling into place, stressful situations can occur which take your mind off the real reason for your special day: to celebrate your love for one another.

Too often it becomes so easy to forget what your wedding day is all about. With just a few special touches, you can keep the love alive through these times of stress and decision. Love notes are free, romantic reminders that can be shared publicly or intimately. They can be as creative as you can dream them or charming and simple, as long as they are thoughtful. Here are some of my favorite examples.
Everyday for almost fifty years before leaving for work my father has left little notes for my mother on her bathroom sink expressing simple sentiments like: “Love you sweetie (smile face)” or “Hope you have a wonderful day.” Try leaving a loving message for your sweetie somewhere they will find: written on a Starbucks coffee cup in the morning, hidden in their shoes, or posted on their mirror. Just so they know you are thinking of them. J

A second idea is finding an object or photograph you can attach a memory to. (This would work great for any guy trying to show his woman his thoughtful, romantic side!) It could be a seashell with a note –“remember that time when I thought you were drowning at the beach and I tried to save you?!” Or a picture from a favorite date—“I can’t believe we rode the ferris wheel 10 times in a row just so we could be alone and make out!”

My favorite is a heartfelt love note written to be shared on your wedding day. This could be a part of your vows or something shared between the two of you alone expressing what you love about the other, how you feel when you’re together, what you look forward to. A truly wonderful wedding gift for your one-and-only. VW keepin’ the love alive!

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment. This doesn’t mean you have to do away with the DJ--an experienced MC can be a great asset to assist with your event schedule,
