I said YES, now what do I do??


You're engaged! Now What????

First, tell your family. You do not want them to find out on social media or from your friends.

If you have your ring, go ahead and insure it. Your ring was a BIG investment! Treat it as such!! Insurance will replace your ring if lost or stolen.  

Photos!!! No, I'm not talking about selfies!! LOL! Have a quick engagement photo session. Take some and give to family and friends or order just a few for you, him, and the parents. 

Think about your guest list. Determining the number of guests will help with venue selection and budget. The more guest, the bigger the venue. The more guest, the bigger the budget. 

Choose your wedding date range. I say 'range' just in case the exact date that you want may not be available at the exact venue that you want. 

Set your budget. Decide who will pay for what. Start saving.

Select your venue options. Do you want your ceremony and reception at the same place? Do you want a destination wedding and have a small reception upon your return? Do you want a Church or hotel wedding? Do you want an outdoor wedding under the sun or inside a tent? 

Once you decide on a venue, book it!!

Choose your wedding party. Choose wisely! You will need responsible people who will have your best interest at heart. 

Try on dresses! The best part! Other than saying "YES"!!

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.
