VaRhonda wants to know....

Hello Newly Engaged!!!

I asked some Brides-to-Be that if they had any wedding related questions to send them to me. Below are the questions VaRhonda had. Hopefully, they will answer some questions that have been on your mind. If not, give me a call!

Bride-to-Be VaRhonda asks: 

"Do you have to send save-the-dates to everyone or just people that live out of town? How far in advance should we send them?


VaRhonda, If you are getting married during high travel times (holidays, summers, etc) then a save-the-date card is helpful to your guests. Also, if you have military family members or family who live out of state, save-the-date cards help tremendously with planning. 

Sending save-the-date cards six months prior to the ceremony will allow guests time to book travel, hotel and request leave from work. They may even save some money by making travel arrangements in advance! 



How are you informing your guests of your upcoming nuptials?



Call me! Let's start planning your BIG DAY!!!

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.

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.
