Clint had a planned business trip to St. Simons Island this week, so Sherrie decided to come along and turn a little business into pleasure. They had been engaged for awhile now, but hadn’t set any plans in stone yet, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to ‘just do it’. The elopement was totally secret to Clint’s business partners and friends, although both Clint’s and Sherri’s close family and friends were all told of the plans before they left for the long weekend.
The most popular reason for the groom not to see the bride before the wedding is because brides want to look stunning to their grooms as he sees them for the very first time on their wedding day. It just wouldn’t have the same effect on the groom if he had already seen the bride in her dress, hair, and makeup before the wedding.
Everyone loves a spring wedding! And it’s no wonder… springtime weather is perfect for an outdoor wedding in a park or on the beach. And best of all, there are so many beautiful flowers in season to choose from. Daisies, Peonies, Tulips, and Roses are so beautiful and this is the season to use them!
Everyone loves receiving a wedding favor that you made yourself! Do-it-yourself wedding favors can be a tremendous savings for your wedding budget, as well, and show your unique style and personality at the same time.
When our son announced his engagement last January, we were absolutely thrilled! Heather began planning her wedding immediately and my role as the ‘mother of the groom’ was to plan the rehearsal dinner. As a wedding planner, I don’t get as much action on the rehearsal dinner planning since that duty generally belongs to the groom’s family, so I was excited to begin making plans as soon as possible!
The garter toss is a wedding tradition that is fun for the groom as well as all the eligible bachelors at the wedding reception. Most grooms have fun with it and it’s usually enjoyed by all the guests, as well.
Have you and your fiancé been tossing the idea around of getting matching tattoos to represent your marriage, rather than rings, or in addition to rings? There are many tattoos that will represent your marriage in a unique and interesting way. Some couples like the idea of getting each other’s names as a tattoo on each other’s body, although I am not comfortable in making that suggestion to anyone.
