Mr. and Mrs. Lane (18 years)

We are a team...We put each other first!
*********************************************************

Gilbert & Cynthia Lane have known each other since 1990. They were Married on October 26, 1995. Read below to find out how music brought these two together!
Wichita, KS
 
The qualities that made me want to marry Cynthia: She seemed to actually like me! She’s also a good person.

We keep the romance alive by refusing to pressure each other; we respect and accept each other as we are. You can't change someone, so why try! We enjoy spending time together, listening to music, and taking trips together.
Our favorite part of marriage is just being around each other.

The most important part of marriage is to accept the fact that NO ONE is perfect. People are individuals, accept them as they are. You CAN'T change them. 
Stressful times always happen. The BIG things seem to work themselves out. It's the little things that cause the biggest problems, understand that.
When those times arise, remember that NO ONE is perfect. Don't put your business in the streets. Remember you are a TEAM! Telling everyone your business will ALWAYS cause problems. The big problems work themselves out; it's the little stuff that grows into big problems. If you can't fix it, don't worry about it. Always have a kind word or small compliment for your spouse. If you look for flaws you will ALWAYS find them. Never get into it with your spouse’s family. They will always be their family. Show them respect (even if they don't respect you).

Strengths of our marriage: We put each other first. Everyone else is second (except in an emergency). We try to have respect for what each other like and deal with it.

What I love about my wife is she is a sweet and caring person. She tries to meet my needs and wants.

I love my husband's vast knowledge of trivia and his musical ability. He is kind and super sweet to me! I love that he shows my family the respect they are due.

Our advice for newlyweds: • RESPECT each other • Put each other first • Don't involve others in your marriage • Be kind to each other and treat them the way you want to be treated • Stay out of your in-laws’ squabbles and show them respect • Say something nice to each other, and don't continually complain and find fault.

The song that best describes our marriage may not describe it but is our song "Got the Blues For Murder Only" by Lonnie Johnson.

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…
