Pick a place you and your husband would like to go and pretend to be there for the night. You can make the cuisine of your chosen destination, dress the part and even attempt the accent if necessary. Add a signature drink and be sure to enhance the mood with the proper festive music.
It's all about your night away, so be sure to put the phones on silent and deter any distractions. Making time for a night away will be relaxing and the fun in playing the part often brings a smile.
On your wedding day, make sure you or your maid of honor is carrying an on-the-go bridal kit! Here are a few items that are essential to your kit: sewing kit, stain-remover-Tide pen or Madame Paulettes', Singer Instant bond double-sided fabric tape, krazy clue, aspirin, breath mints, tissues, and touch up makeup. If you do not want to create one yourself, there are a number of ready-made versions available. You will find that on the day of your wedding, things can happen and it is better to be prepared. A bridal kit is a must have, so do not leave home without it!

Out with the large pastry puff appetizers and bowls of soup before dinner. Make room for the bite size hors d'oeuvres and demitasse of soup. More couples are planning receptions with poppable treats and tiny shots of flavor fusion. There's nothing more awkward then trying to enjoy a delectable hors d'oeuvre that's hard to handle and take a bite from without spilling the contents down your chin. Bite size solves your potential dilemma.

If you're not sure that a wedding coordinator is in your budget during this rough economy, we still suggest setting up consults with a few coordinators. You may realize that their insight could prove instrumental to making sure your day goes smoothly and consider reevaluating your budget to make room for them. Another good reason to set consults is because most coordinators are eager to help and may give you a few ideas or things to think of that never would've crossed your mind. While your budget may be forcing some budget decisions to be made later, establishing a relationship with a coordinator now could prove to be a real stress reliever later.
Contact our dynamite coordinators to set up consultation:

Tell your soon-to-be to break out that family heirloom time piece he's been protecting. Your wedding is a great time to use it, share it with the family and snap a few memorable pics of it. If you look back, you may find a wedding day pic of the original family owner using it on his wedding day!Photo provided by Allison Stahl Photography
More sparkle! Crystals and teardrops (small glass beads) are popping up everywhere. Florists are including them within the bridal bouquet, scattered amongst rose petals on table surfaces, or even hanging from tall elaborate floral centerpieces. Add a touch of crystals to the wedding cake, and certainly include them in a barrette or clip for your hair. There is never too much â??bling.â??
