Mr. and Mrs. Wiggs (17 years)


30 Day Notice

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

Joe and Carole Wiggs met at a police seminar and it was love at first sight for Joe. As he looked at Carole he told one of his colleagues that she was going to be his wife! Guess what? He was right! They married on June 12, 1997, less than 30 days after meeting one another.

Ardmore, OK

What qualities did you see in this person that made you want to marry him/her? There was a deep spiritual connection between us.

How do you keep the romance going? What are some things that you enjoy doing as a couple?  We enjoy working together and sharing experiences of life as one!

What is your favorite part of marriage?  The loving bond that connects us and allows us to appreciate each other.

What is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful? You must have “trust “embedded in your heart and a willingness to perceive each other as equals.

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?  Carole: Knowing that I’m never forced to face situations of adversity alone.

Marriage isn't always a cakewalk. What advice can you offer newly engaged couples when disagreements occur?  Display compassion that allows each one to see the other’s point of view even though you may not agree.  Never be so obstinate that you are unable to say, “I’m sorry.”

What do you see as the strengths of your marriage?  A spiritual bond that cannot be severed.

JOE, what do you LOVE about CAROLE?  Her uncanny ability to overlook my immature quirks and yet, maintain her total faith in me.

CAROLE, what do you LOVE about JOE?  His honesty, humor, and his dedication to family.

What advice would you give newlyweds? You must believe in the innate ability of your partner to love you without question or reservation.  To trust your companion beyond all unsubstantiated and disagreeable accusations from others.   Be more than able and willing to “forgive” if necessary.

What song best describes your marriage?  “For Your Precious Love” recorded by Jerry Butler.♫♫

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.

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…
