He proposed, you've accepted...now what?

Take a deep breath, climb atop of the biggest bed you can find, and jump up and down hysterically!!!

YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!


Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!! The 'proper' way would be to hold an engagement party and formally announce your engagement, but let's face it...technology has changed all of the rules! So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!


I highly recommend hiring a bridal consultant and/or wedding planner (here comes the plug....Kiss and Tell Weddings) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

 As your bridal consultant, I will not tell you what to do but rather listen to your wishes and desires of your dream wedding. You may walk into the consultation with your 'Dream Wedding Scrapbook' that you've had since you were 12 or you may walk into the consultation with so many questions that you have no idea where to start. Both scenarios are okay!

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé', and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, you and your fiancé' can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. As your bridal consultant, I will consult with you before any decisions are final, allowing you to be in control of YOUR special day and have the final say.


On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future husband down the aisle on time, troubleshoot any mishaps, oversee your vendors, and ensure that your day goes as smooth as possible.  From your engagement until the last dance at the reception hall, Kiss and Tell Weddings will be there every step of the way!


Once again, congratulations and best wishes!!

Food Terms You NEED to Know!

WEDDING RECEPTION FOOD TERMS (via: www.weddingsforaliving.com)


ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Unlike hors d’oeuvres, antipasto is served at the table and traditionally consists of cured meats, marinated vegetables and cheeses.


BUFFET: Casual way to serve a large group of guests; a variety of dishes displayed on tables that guests can pick and choose from. Typically doesn’t work for venues with numerous small rooms.

FAMILY STYLE: Platters of food are placed at each table. Wedding guests help themselves and pass the food around to one another.

FRENCH SERVICE: This individualized and highly skilled type of food service is not very common in the U.S. Rather than being plated in the kitchen, white-gloved waiters prepare food table side from a single large dish or platter held by another waiter. Each guest is served individually.

HORS D’ OEUVRES: (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer typically served before a meal; food that precedes the mai…

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}
1. Trim the guest list: the fewer guests--the fewer tables--the fewer centerpieces, the fewer expenses
2. Choose a gorgeous setting: this cuts down on the cost of decorations
3. Use a reception site that is already equipped with tables, chairs, flatware, and staff: save on delivery fees
4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.
7. Eliminate the champagne toast: guests can raise their punch, water, or tea in your honor
8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…
