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!
Weddings are a $25 billion industry and the newly engaged will join the 2,000,000 individuals who will be getting married this year across the United States. With that number in mind, it is wise to begin planning for the big event as soon as possible. Are you getting married in your parents' backyard or heading off to Vegas? There a ton of options for those planning on tying the knot and there are many professionals who can help walk you through the process. Before you start putting deposits on anything, experts agree the first thing to do is to set a budget.
This article is a bit different than most as it's a fill in the blank opportunity for you to do a service check on the relationship you have with your spouse or partner. I encourage you to set up some special alone time with your significant other; fill in your answers, then share your answers with each other. Be open. Be honest. Be humble. It's not about right and wrong but about opening up communication in order to develop a deeper, more meaningful connection to the person you're spending the rest of your life with.
Set the tone early with a starkly contrasted classic monogrammed invitation in chocolate and ivory that coordinates perfectly with formal on-site menu cards. Orchids add a special touch of luxury to bouquets, centerpieces and boutonnieres. You can display the glamour of the season with gold-flecked textured linens offset by sumptuous satin napkins shaded a deep champagne. Finally, close the evening with a burnished cake topped with hand-painted fondant leaves.

Do you cover your mouth when you laugh or smile? Crooked or stained teeth, as well as an uneven gum line, can prevent you from expressing joy on what should be the happiest day of your life. Thankfully, procedures like Invisalign (invisible braces) or natural-looking porcelain veneers are impressively quick solutions that will last a lifetime. Your straight, white, even smile is a bridal gift to yourself that will keep on giving every day.
Florists. Caterers. Consultants. Seminars. Hypnotists? From traditional wedding vendors to options you may have yet to consider, event-related choices are innumerable. Browse through the following collection and become inspired; your dream wedding is just a few phone calls away.
Whether you're dreaming of a dramatic updo or casual curls, funky makeup or the girl-next-door glow, Santa Clarita's finest beauty professionals can turn imagination into reality.
Be sure to arrange for someone with a large vehicle to transport your gifts home from the reception. This will allow you and your new spouse to make a quick getaway. Even if you don't hire a wedding planner to help you with the arrangements for your wedding, you can save yourself and your family a lot of stress by hiring someone to oversee the day, acting as a liaison with the officiant at the wedding and the catering staff, photographer and entertainment at the reception.
Make planning your big day simple, not simply complicated! It only takes a dab of visualization, a dose of organization and a touch of prioritization topped off with a dollop of creativity and you have the ingredients to plan your wedding like a true professional.
Don't be afraid of incorporating a theme into your wedding. The term doesn't have to mean costumes and cheesy decor. It essentially means a unifying concept that is carried throughout the elements of your event to make it cohesive. For example, so many marriages today blend different cultures.
Baby wipes remove makeup and other smears from wedding dresses without staining. A binder is a great way to stay organized. Make dividers with headings like: church, reception, flower ideas, cakes. When you are going through magazines, cut out some ideas that you like. Showing vendors your ideas and what you like will help them immensely.

The holidays are behind us - seasonal decorations have been put away and relatives have returned home. But maybe you were one of the lucky ones and a little of the bling-bling of the holiday season is still with you and wrapped around a finger on your left hand. The newly engaged will join the two million individuals who will be getting married this year across the United States. With that number in mind, it is wise to begin planning for the big event as soon as possible.
