Your roots are all country and you want to show it off? Consider a western wedding cake and western-themed reception. Western cake toppers are the obvious choice for the cake, but there are other creative choices, too. To get the ideas flowing, take a look at pictures in Google Images and the western accessories here. Encircle the wedding cake with a rhinestone-encrusted belt, embellish with boot- or star-shaped magnets / tins, or embed country western seals in the icing for decoration The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Whether you are a bride-to-be, parent, or guest, today’s tough economic news is likely to have you worried — gas prices over $4.00 a gallon and climbing, mortgage industry gloom and doom, increasing unemployment, and generally higher prices. This may not be the best time to splurge on an expensive wedding or gift. The good news is that not all wedding items must be purchased at expensive specialty or department stores. Mainstream retailers such as Kohls or Target, for example, not only have bridal registries and carry items appropriate for gift-giving, but carry some wedding supplies as well. As an […]
As I mentioned yesterday, used wedding dresses are a great source for a cheap wedding dress. Another idea for saving money is to purchase new gowns made to resemble designer dresses. In general, you order the gown based on a photo of an existing dress. A seamstress, usually in an Asian country, then recreates the general look of the pictured gown — often for less than $100. I’ve read both positive and negative critiques of this approach to purchasing a wedding gown. Whether these dresses are right for you depends on your own priorities: If you expect the same quality […]
If you are like many newly engaged people, your thoughts about wedding planning can be summed up in one word: clueless. You may have feelings about specific aspects of your wedding, but detailed wedding ideas are probably few. After deciding on the date and dreaming over a few wedding dresses, you will want to decide what type of wedding you want.

Or the less formal one (in a church, daytime, shorter gowns, suits for the guys). But for the […]
It took us a while to decide which photographer to use for Amarette and Steve’s wedding. We all wanted a journalistic-style photographer with a lot of experience. Steve’s sister, Christy, has several friends who have been burned by unprofessional photographers (not delivering the photos in a timely manner, etc). His family has also used a premium photographer — St. Louis Color — for several weddings and they are very happy with the work. I agree, but am freaking out about paying $3,500 for photos! My belief was there must be photographers out there who are dependable, do great work, and […]
