This one was fun!

Nick and Rozina knew they wanted to be married. They knew where and when but they hadn’t quite settled on the officiant yet. Rozina began emailing me last year but we kept missing connections and other wedding plans seemed to be more important, so she put me off for a few months.

Due to other weddings and plans, I was unable to get back to poor Rozina right away. It may have been the longest weekend of her life.

Say hello to James and Brianna! Aren’t they gorgeous?

I first met them, along with Brianna’s mother, Tina, back in February. After 4 wonderful years together they were looking for a lighthearted, short and sweet ceremony that included their daughter and was fun for their guests.

Planning a Wedding Your Guests Will Love

WeddingsI know, I know. It’s your special day, it should be all about you and what you want, right?

Weeeellllll… yes and no. It is your wedding and it should be special for you but when you’re throwing a party for 50-500 people, it needs to be planned for more than just 2 of them.

These are just a few things to think seriously about from your guest’s perspectives before you send out your invites.

What ages will be attending?

While many modern couples are choosing whether or not to plan a child-friendly wedding, they typically forget to plan an elder-friendly wedding. Venues that are difficult to access, programs/seating charts/invitations with too tiny print, lack of shade or warmth at an outdoor ceremony, vague directions to the reception venue, loud music too early in the reception – all of these things can challenge and confound your beloved older guests.

If you’ve been to more than two weddings in your life you’ve seen it, right? Two small candles are lit and the bride and groom light the center candle together. It symbolizes unity, the light of the spirit, two becoming one, etc. So, is it still trendy or old fashioned or something else entirely?

Once upon a time weddings were simple events. You fell in love, you told your family and friends, you went to church in your “Sunday best” clothes for a simple ceremony either during or after the service, then you went home for a small celebration feast with those closest to you. The end. No full year of planning, no high ticket dresses, no fire-breathing elephants dancing at your $50,000 reception hall. Just two people, in love. Simple.

Now the word wedding seems to mean complicated and expensive. Why? What happened?
