12 month wedding checklist:

- reserve the ceremony and reception venues
- mail save-the-date cards if you need them
- start looking at dresses in magazines and on websites

Wedding Trend - Unity Sand Ceremony

Saturday, September, 24 2016   •   Traditions & Customs   •   by Dynamite Weddings

Try adding some creativity to your ceremony with the unity sand ceremony. We found an easy way to do it with this unity sand vase set from Wedding Outlet. This ceremony works especially well if you are having an outdoor wedding or a lake setting. This is a perfect addition to your nuptials instead of the traditional unity candle which can be a little tricky in outdoor settings. You can choose from an assortment of colored sand and together you blend your sand one color at a time. You are left with a beautiful vase of colored sand that represents the uniting of you two and your two families.

Ask Marvin - Blending Families

Friday, September, 23 2016   •   Ask Marvin   •   by Dynamite Weddings

Dear Marvin,
We are a blended family and I thought our kids would be great friends, but they are doing just the opposite. When will they truly blend?

Dear not so happy blended family,
We found it usually can take double a child's age for everyone to develop strong bonds. So if a child is 2 years old, they should be adjusted by age 4, a 5 year old may not feel solid until age 10. However, many older kids may never completely accept a step-parent or step-sibling. You may never really feel truly blended, but celebrate the small victory moments you may get. It's important to make everyone feel appreciated and respected. Good luck!

Wedding Tip - Take Care Of Your Parents

Thursday, September, 22 2016   •   Wedding Party   •   by Dynamite Weddings

Your parents helped raise you to be the responsible, happy adult that you are and are here to share your special day. Consider doing something special for them before the wedding. If it's a spa day or just having room service deliver them breakfast with the morning paper. It would be a nice gesture to them to receive some pampering, no matter how small. They will be grateful and more relaxed for the important parts of your day.

Ask Marvin - Distressed Over A Dress

Monday, September, 19 2016   •   Ask Marvin   •   by Dynamite Weddings

Dear Marvin,
I am having a small issue with my future Mother-In-Law. The one color I asked her not to choose for her dress (that she is wearing on my wedding day), is of course, the one color she has chosen! I really havenâ??t asked for that much from her with regards to my wedding and I canâ??t believe that my one small request has been completely ignored. And, I really do have a good reason behind my request. My future Mother-In-Lawâ??s dress is the same exact color as the tuxedos! I am not thrilled about my future MIL not only matching my future Father-In-Law's, but the groomsmen, and most importantly, my groom! I am feeling really resentful and irritated that my soon to be MIL isnâ??t taking my feelings into consideration. What should I do?

Distressed Over a Dress!

Dear Distressed,
It sounds like you are in a bit of a sticky situation. If you have already been honest with your MIL-to-be and explained to her the reasons behind your request, there isnâ??t a whole lot left for you to say. If she has already chosen the â??forbiddenâ?? color, and plans to wear that dress- what else can you do? It sounds like it is time to just let this one go. What is the worst thing that will come of all of this? If your answer is there will be too much â??matchingâ?? going on, is that really so bad? At this point, it will benefit all involved if you can adjust your perspective on the whole situation and be more understanding of what your future MIL wants to wear. Even though she isnâ??t the bride (thatâ??s you lucky girl!), Iâ??m sure you can certainly understand her wanting to feel her best on such an important day. So, try and let it go. Focus on what is really importantâ?¦the love you share with your soon to be husband and your future together. Enjoy your day of celebration and donâ??t let anything bring you down.

Cloud Nine - Proactive Protection

Friday, September, 16 2016   •   Cloud Nine   •   by Dynamite Weddings

Cloud Nine is directed at the reality of being married now, how things change and the responsibilities that go along with your nuptials.

Something that many of us don't think about as a single person running around town is life insurance, a will or an advanced healthcare directive. While our site is geared towards the fun of planning, getting, and being married, we need to remind you of the not so "fun" stuff that needs to be addressed now that you have someone else sharing your life. Life insurance and a will are designed to help safeguard your partner and outline specific requests should something happen to you. An advanced healthcare directive clearly outlines your wishes, should you be unable to cognitively voice your healthcare decisions. Once you have children this may move to the forefront of your mind a little more...but start thinking about it.

Check out for forms and directions to make these tasks easier.
