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, they will be thrown in the garbage by your guest (money literally in the garbage!)

Mr. and Mrs. Pedersen 8.9.2019

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.
– Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion. This Persian-American wedding was filled with love, gorgeous flowers, and the most exquisite Sofreh I've seen.











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.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

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…
