Being Prepared For A Medical Emergency.

In planning our weddings, something we usually don’t think about is “what if someone has a heart attack? What if someone cuts themselves? What if someone goes into a diabetic comma? What if someone goes into labor?”, etc.

If your gown has a long […]

Wedding Retailers

If you purchase your gown from a retailer, order it at least six months prior to your wedding date to allow for errors in size, style, or shipping.

New Trends in Dresses

White is not the exclusive color for brides anymore. Brides wear cream, pastels, or even suits to their weddings.
If you do wear white, you don’t have to be the only one. Wedding party attendants can also wear white, which creates a beautiful effect in photos.

The Gum Chewer - Wedding Etiquette

As a kid I never understood why my mom was so “mean” about letting me have bubble gum. One day she said to me “I don’t want you looking like a cow”. It didn’t stop me from chewing gum but from that point on I couldn’t help but observe people chewing gum. She was right, […]
