Saying “yes” to the venue is the most important decision you’ll make about your wedding, followed closely by your choice of caterer. There are lots of things to think about as you plan your wedding. If you take them one thing at a time and do them in order, the process can be what it’s meant to be– fun and exciting!
Two big questions that come up about wedding planning are when should you talk with your parents about money for your wedding, and how do you prepare for that conversation. We’re going to answer both questions right now!
Now what? Where do you need to start with your wedding planning? Based on my experience working with thousands of couples, the two most important things to know– two things you have to know before you spend a dime– are how many people you plan to invite, and how much money you have available to spend. Every aspect of your wedding planning is related to those two things: your budget and your anticipated guest count.
Your wedding ceremony bares your heart and soul to the people you love and who love you, inviting them into your marriage to support you and your beloved in your journey together. Your ceremony celebrates what you believe about marriage and proclaims those things that are essential to your marriage. It is your public declaration of your love and devotion to your partner.
There are lots of great ways to save money on your wedding by doing things yourself. The trade-off of money and convenience for time and effort can be a good one that builds camaraderie and gives you genuine joy in the doing.
Considering cutting the TV cord? These days, more and more people are cutting the cord, as cable TV, satellite TV and even FiOS TV are becoming more and more expensive. Even the cover story for a recent Consumer Reports looked at the issue.
Remember the days when everything was paper and you had file cabinets to organize all that paper, or it was in boxes with no organization? Today we likely have those same disorganized drives on our electronic devices. With all these electronic documents, I find having a good organizational system for them is essential. Not only does it make it easier to find things, but it helps reduce recreating things because you cannot find them.
Down with Lazy Dogs! Our dogs have a unique lifestyle. They’re spoiled, but that’s not unusual. What makes the day-to-day different is that their dads both have jobs that allow them to go to work with their dogs.
Hi! I’m Enthusiastic Emma looking to find my forever home. I’m an active and playful gal who actually still acts like a puppy. I enjoy running, jumping, and long walks – so I can be in the great outdoors. I’m also very loving and enjoy giving kisses. Rubber toys, nyla bones, and stuffed animals are my favorites. I’m quite intelligent and know commands like “sit,” “down,” “stay,” and “come.” I know I will make a wonderful and loyal companion. If I sound like the canine for you then please come in soon. BHS works hard to save as many animals […]
Summer is upon on us. This is a warm, fun, happy time of year that offers many opportunities to be outside. Summer also offers its fair share of holidays including Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day. One of the things that dogs love about these holidays is barbeques. One of things that they may not like so much is fireworks. Happily, Violet, Daisy, and Henry are largely unconcerned about these very flashy and very loud spectacles. Violet, however, is very worried for all her canine friends that are afraid of loud noises.
