Last night I had the pleasure of attending a N.A.C.E. (National Association of Catering Executives) event last night. It was great to see a lot of our friends who also work in the wedding industry. One of my favorite people, Rachel Cytacki, owner of All Things Creative, was also there and she volunteered to guest blog about what we learned last night about colors, decorations and upcoming trends in the wedding world:
Here Comes The Blog...
A COMPLETE WEDDING RESOURCE FOR TODAY'S COUPLE.
Choosing the perfect music for your wedding reception may be harder than you think. You may love techno, but your Grandmother may leave early, shaking her head in she hears drum and bass during dinner. Check out this email I got from a DJ who worked with the bride and groom to compose the perfect music to keep everyone happy at their reception.
Wait no longer Detroit Area Brides! Here are the Tweets we promised last Thursday from Herbert and Zylmyra Fisher, the world’s longest married couple at 85 years and counting. Pretty powerful stuff!
Valentines Day is only two days away and if you brides are anything like me, you have yet to plan something. If the task of the day’s activities have been delegated to you, have no worries. I found 7 romantic, simple, non-traditional, budget friendly ways to spend your day.
With Valentines Day right around the corner, I think a celebration of the longevity that marriage can be is in order. Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher of North Carolina have been married for 85 years (going on 86 in May.) They have the title of the World’s Longest Married Couple.
If you follow our Tweets, you already saw this, but it is so sweet that I had to put it on the blog, too. It is the recipe for A Happy Marriage. I like mine with a little extra sugar though. 🙂
A buddy of mine sent me this video today, and I just had to share it. I guess this is what happens to brides who let planning get the best of them, then start delegating tasks to the not-so-reliable groomsmen.
Wedding Reception traditions are beginning to get a bit dated. How many of your girlfriend’s are fighting to win the bouquet toss or men scrambling for the garter? But there is one traditional reception activity that I am quite partial to: The Anniversary Dance. This is a great way to get people on the dance floor as well as celebrate longevity in marriage.
Are you trying to get the most out of your wedding budget? If you are like most Detroit Area brides you are looking to cut costs by doing some Do-it-Yourself projects or enlisting friends to help. Whether you are thinking hand-made centerpieces, unique ceremony decorations, or creating your own silk flower arrangements, capitalize on the skills and interest you have already.
