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.
"Blushing bride?" That's so last century. Check out Inside SCV Magazine's 2010 collection of bridal bests: sassy, sexy, sophisticated - and
everything in between.
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.

Love, even if fleeting, is more than worthy of celebration. This month we were especially excited to take on the task of creating the very best local bridal guide. Because when life feels uncertain, there's nothing better than knowing that no matter what, "love conquers all."
An in-depth look at local eateries and their catering options for your special event.
Fast cars, war games and nary a bikini-clad woman in sight: It's the perfect "marriage" between what guys want to do (hang out with the guys!) before the wedding and what their fiancees don't want them to do. Here are our favorite testosterone-driven options:

240 the average number of minutes you've booked for your reception site
90 the average number of minutes a discount tea light burns
Your centerpiece candles shouldn't flicker out before the real magic even starts. Pick up 100-percent soy tea lights made by Beanpod. They'll cleanly burn for at least four hours and are available in a variety of fashion colors to better coordinate with your event.
A Gift for the both of You
After the wedding, it's hard to find another "as good" excuse to get your hair, makeup and nails done... But he won't complain about the expense when he sees the final result.
A wedding is not a singular event, but THOUSANDS OF LITTLE DETAILS that come together - or apart - depending on one's preparation. Don't forget any of these necessities...
Before you surrender to wedding-planning blues or head for a drive-thru chapel in Vegas, here are some helpful insider tips that will help ensure your extravaganza is well-planned, organized and - most importantly - reflects your personal style.
HOSTING A PARTY in honor of the nearly-married should not require a special trip to the bank to pick up $50 in singles.
BRIDAL BEAUTY need not be high maintenance. Softly coifed hair, glowing skin and gently-defined features make for a stunningly-understated look.
Attention brides-to-be (or anyone who wants to look great for their own "big day"): Do you want to look your radiant best when you walk down the aisle? Would you like your skin to glow, your hair to be full and luxurious, and your makeup to be perfectly applied? Would you also like to feel relaxed and photographer-ready?
There is nothing like a little sparkle during the holidays and if you are now sporting a diamond ring on your left hand, that means you will soon be planning a special event of your own - your wedding.

As you prepare for the big day, deciding a date may be one of the easiest decisions you make. Today's weddings are big productions and there are hundreds of little details you will have to iron out before the day of your dreams arrives. Have no fear, though. There are several local experts who love weddings and are ready to help.
A co-ed shower that will impress even the most cynical guest! Game ideas: Every guest is asked to bring a wrapped item (with no name) that they feels represents their relationship/friendship with the bride for her to keep. This can be really fun and a great ice breaker as the bride is asked to guess who gave her which item. If the group has a great sense of humor, the guest can be asked to bring a new pair of underwear for the bride to help get her ready for her honeymoon. The guests would bring a pair that best fits their personality so the bride can guess who they are from. (the underwear are turned in - unwrapped - to the party hostess who hangs them on display for all to see on a clothesline). This is so much fun assuming it's the right crowd!
