5 Tips to Peacful Wedding Planning

5 Tips to Peaceful Planning Centered, Focused, Poised, Relaxed at Peace!! Can you say these words would describe how you are feeling while planning your wedding? If not, we completely understand your pain. Planning a wedding can almost become a full-time job and there will be moments when you feel a little overwhelmed or stressed. We have put together 5 tips to bring the Zen into your planning! Tip #1 Centered: Drink lots of water and get plenty of rest!  Take a yoga or Pilates class and try to begin each day with gratitude. Problems and worries disintegrate when you take a few minutes to be thankful for what you have. Tip #2 Focused: Set aside dedicated time and days to work on your wedding. Try not to multi-task. Stay focused on one project at a time through completion and then move on to the next project. Tip #3 Poised: How you handle yourself when dealing with your vendors and all the people you come in contact with while planning will determine your stress levels. Maintain your composure at all times. Tip #4 Relaxed: A relaxed bride is the most radiant, beautiful bride. She glows because she is not worried, she confident and ready to marry the man of her dreams. Hire a “Day Of” wedding planner at the very least so that on the day of your wedding you and your family can actually trust a professional to execute a flawless, stress free wedding. Tip #5 Peace: Take some time right before the wedding and go to the Spa and splurge. Take your mom or bestie and get...

How to Incorporate Your Dog(s) at Your Wedding

5 Tips How to Incorporate Your Dog(s) at Your Wedding Having your dog in your wedding can be easily pulled off with the proper planning. It will also be a great memory to have of your dog and you get fabulous pictures too!! Tip #1 – First and foremost, make sure your Venue will allow dogs! Pets are rarely allowed in churches. If you are marrying at a small local church, you could try explaining the situation and asking, but be prepared for an emphatic no.  Park, beach and wooded area weddings are much easier to work with (just check the posted signs closely for parks, and keep the dog on leash). Outdoor weddings at some hotels or country clubs can usually allow a dog, but indoor arrangements can be hard to make, as local food safety laws usually forbid the presence of dogs in dining areas. Tip #2 – Is your dog well trained? If your dog is a barker or likes to jump, usually it’s not a good idea to include them. Work on obedience long before the big day. For example, practice having the pet sit in a receiving line or familiarize it with the ceremony space. If your dog hasn’t mastered the basic commands of “come, sit and stay,” you shouldn’t include him/her in the wedding. Tip #3 – You’re going to be busy, and probably wearing clothing worth a significant amount of money, for that alone hire a professional pet handler for the day. This person usually is responsible for getting your pet to and from the event, and arranging for toilet breaks and...

5 Tips about How to Manage Children at Your Wedding!

5 Tips about How to Manage Children at Your Wedding! Every year we receive a question from one of our clients about children at their wedding and what suggestion do we have for not inviting them, or if they are invited how to keep them from ruining everyone’s great time.  They are also needing help to word their invitations in a way that would exclude children without being rude.    We’re always amazed that families insist on bringing young kids to formal and semi-formal weddings-and are insulted to boot if the children are not invited. The fact is that kids become easily tired and bored at weddings. Ever wonder why they cry so much? Is it because they’re busting at the seams with happiness? No, it’s because they’re miserable. If you invite children, you must make them part of your over planning!! It just becomes another detail to address. Tip #1 – First of all, it’s against the rules of etiquette to word an invitation to exclude children, but etiquette has provided us with a logical and non-offensive solution to the problem. If you don’t want to invite kids, you don’t include their names when addressing your invitations. People receiving invitations that exclude their children’s names should take the hint that the kids are not invited. You can also put in the number of guests invited on the RSVP card. If there are two adults and two children and put 2 are invited that should also be a hint. Tip #2 – Second, you must spread the word through the grapevine that kids are off limits. For those friends...
