As we worked to create our beautiful Wedding & Event guide, we were reminded of the Corinthians verses: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." Regardless of your religious affiliation, we think that we can all agree that this inclusive, timeless definition of love is one worth repeating - and practicing.

Traditions have evolved during the past 25 or more years since your parents walked down the aisle. Here's a look at some of the changes that indicate how your own upcoming wedding will be different from Mom's and Dad's.
Some brides will tell you that choosing a location was harder than selecting their spouse to be. But it doesn't have to be so difficult. The key to a great location is, strangely enough, "location" - meaning that it's close enough to your home to make site visits, planning appointments and vendor interviews convenient. Lucky for you, the SCV is filled with an incredible variety of wedding and event locations from which to choose. Here are five of our favorites.
More and more brides are offering candy favors. Forget the "Old School" mints or almonds wrapped in tulle. Think of fancy lollipops displayed for guests to select their favorites.
Damask patterns are very popular to use as backgrounds for invitations, programs, napkins or table covers.

Love is in the Details
Chances are, your wedding will require basics like table linens, flatware and chairs. Did you know that the "basics" can be anything but, and for the same price or just pennies more? Your love isn't generic, and your wedding shouldn't be, either. Never miss an opportunity to show off your personality as a couple.
For couples that share a faith in God, there are special issues to consider on the road to a happy marriage.
"My favorite part of the reception was the photo montage," recalled my dear friend, Beth. I was a guest at her wedding and am in full agreement after witnessing the profound effect that the montage had on friends, family, and - of course - the couple themselves.
