Invite the children??

If you decide not to invite children, do not write it on your invites. Simply address the invite to the parents, omitting the children. Let word spread by mouth. 

What parts of the wedding can children be a part of?

*Junior Groomsmen/Bridesmaids/Ushers (ages 4 to 8)
*Ring Bearers (ages 4 to 8)
*Page/Train Bearer(s) (ages 6 to 9)--This English tradition usually is performed by two little boys who follow the bride down the aisle, carrying her long train. Feel free to have girl pages!
*Candle Kids (ages 9 to 12)

Alter Arrangements: Where do they stand?

Include children attendants in the altar line-up only if they are old enough to stand still comfortable for the duration of your ceremony. Otherwise, stand them behind you, in front of your older attendants, or have them sit with their parents. 

I have a child(ren) from a previous marriage/relationship. I want them to be included in my ceremony...any ideas?


  • Include them in the vows where they accept their new siblings or family.
  • Allow your child to escort you down the aisle and "give you away".
  • Allow them to read a poem, biblical verse, or prose pieces.

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

OMG!! 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 wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

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, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…
