Mr. and Mrs. Chaney (10 years)


"Make him laugh when he is mad"

*************************************************

Brittni stalked Wesley over 14 years ago {LOL}! His sweet personality and fast car caught her attention immediately. Brittni and Wesley were married on May 24, 2003. Spending the rest of her life with her best friend is her favorite part of marriage! Ladies, follow Brittni's lead and 'go get your man!' Read below to find out how the Chaney's keep the friendship and romance alive!


Oklahoma, USA


1. What qualities did you see in Wesley that made you want to marry him?
He is my best friend, we do everything together and we always have.  He is strong willed, organized, dependable, and very loving.
 
2. How do you keep the romance going? What are some things that you enjoy doing as a couple?
 We go on a date night every month, we usually go out to eat and watch a movie.  He also meets me on his days off through the week and we eat lunch together.  We also have a date night on Wednesday nights when our kids go to church.  We love playing golf together and watching movies.
 
3. What is your favorite part of marriage?
My favorite part of marriage is knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. 
 
4. What is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful?
Communication definitely!!! Never go to bed angry! Never hide your feelings whether they are good or bad.  If you are mad let your spouse know that you are mad and why.  Keeping your problems to yourself only makes it worse.
 
5. Life often throws many curveballs, and those that make it through those tough times stay together. How have you dealt with stressful times that arise?
I always use humor.  I make him laugh when he is mad at me and he usually isn’t mad anymore. J  We also talk through anything that bothers each of us.  The other most important thing is not telling your family every problem that you have because it only makes your family see your side and they will resent your spouse.
 
6. Marriage isn't always a cakewalk. What advice can you offer newly engaged couples when disagreements occur?
 Back to number 5 make sure you try to talk out your problems as a couple you don’t want your family to tell you to leave your spouse.  You also need to work at it!! Don’t give up just because you’re mad.   You have to be prepared to fight for your marriage.  Marriage is forever! Anyone can get a divorce so before you take the leap to say “I do” you had better be prepared to spend your entire life with that person through the good times and the bad.
 
7. What do you see as the strengths of your marriage?
We are both hard headed but we can always compromise.  We don’t try to change each other. I feel like people marry someone and try to change the way they are.  It will not be successful if you marry someone thinking you can change them because you can’t!!  I feel like we are truly as in love as we were the first day we met.  We are best friends and spend a lot of time together.
 
8. Wesley, what do you LOVE about Brittni?
I love her because she is faithful, sincere, the best mom, loving, respectful, and most importantly I can't imagine a day without her.  She is my best friend.
 
9. Brittni, what do you LOVE about Wesley?
I love the way that he adores me. Even though he doesn’t say it I can see it.  I love the way that he tells me that “He loves me more”.  He is faithful, honest and an amazing father. He is my best friend.
 
10. What advice would you give newlyweds?
  * Be prepared to fight for your marriage. *Be faithful! * Spend as much time together as you can.
 
What song best describes your marriage?
 “Amazed” by Lonestar♫♫

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…

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.
