Money Saving Tips

Great Money Saving Tips from the Nebraska Wedding Guide
General Savings:

  • Create a comparison chart to track what’s included in venue prices you’re quoted. Some places claim to include everything but leave out something you need.

  • Determine your budget and prioritize. A rule of thumb: food, beverage and venue should be about half of your budget.

  • Many public spaces available for small rental fees, but must be equipped to handle a big event. You could blow your budget on rental items.

  • Book one location for your ceremony and reception. You won’t have to pay multiple site fees, plus there’s no need for transportation between each one.

  • Belong to an organization? You may have access to your group’s venue.

  • Many colleges offer beautiful, reasonable priced spots for students and alumni to tie the knot. Find out if this is a viable option for your event.

  • Most places charge a premium for Saturday night. Try an afternoon wedding or a Friday or Sunday-night event.

  • Plan an intimate Sunday brunch. A morning ceremony, followed by an early-afternoon meal, is likely to be easier on the wallet.

  • Time is of the essence. Schedule a 3-hour event instead of a 5-hour one.

  • Prune your guest list. Since so many wedding elements are charged on a per-person basis, aiming for fewer can save you big.

  • Avoid overage fees from limo drivers, photographers and other pros by sticking to a prearranged schedule.

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.

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage.

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…
