Wedding Planning is arguably the most exciting thing [or the worst thing depending on your perspective] that one can put themselves through in life. Your emotions will run the gamut of absolutely loving wedding planning, to absolutely hating wedding planning, and every emotion in between.
For many brides it’s something they looked forward to for their entire life, while some simply want to get married, without all the pomp and circumstance that weddings certainly are akin to.
Our site is unique as it offers fresh content from local wedding vendors. Please read our multi-ethnic, multi-racial wedding articles, which are very informative and very interesting and not often discussed on mainstream wedding sites. We’re proud to show off some of the Nation’s best wedding photography images, as well some of the best wedding videography by modern cinematographers.
It’s time to get EXCITED about WEDDING PLANNING! Also check out these topics:

FACTOID: Many wedding consultants got their start after having planned their own wedding….how’s that for ON THE JOB TRAINING!
I SAID YES TO A PROPOSAL, NOW WHAT DO I DO?
Once you get a ring, you need to set a date for your wedding. Brides will have to determine what time of the year for the wedding to take place. Some brides may choose ‘off-peak’ seasons and also choose a weekday or Sunday to get married. For many brides, it’s the availability of the locations they want that will determine the wedding date.
“OK, I GOT A RING AND A DATE. NOW WHAT DO I DO?”
WEDDING PLANNING SCHEDULE: Don’t be hap-hazard about your wedding planning. Try and set-up a daily schedule with which to take care of any wedding planning activities you may have. You will soon discover that wedding planning takes as much time as having a second or part time job. For students or people who work, the time you spend planning will be critical and will have to be productive.

INCLUDE THE GROOM
Venus and Mars. Yep, there may be some conflict here so it’s important to include the groom right from the beginning. Men will often complain when it comes to spending money. The opposite side of this coin is that Woman LOVE TO SHOP. This results in two heads, being better than one! Often, the groom (or bride if the situation is reverse) can raise issues and offer an alternative view of whatever situation presents itself.
BE GOOD TO YOURSELF!!!
As the wedding day approaches, you will find that things will get much more stressful. This is the time when you need to take even better care of yourself by getting some pampering by your local or getaway SPA. Set up weekly message therapy sessions. If you work out, spend more time at the gym. Weeks before the wedding, cut back (or eliminate?) the caffeine, alcohol and nicotine. We’ve spoken to many a bride who did not sleep the night prior to the wedding and many times it was due to consuming too much of the above!

by Maren Nicholas, calligrapher The word “calligraphy” literally means “beautiful writing” and is commonly known as “the art of the written word.” It traditionally has been used in the holy scriptures, royal correspondence, works of art and many other significant events. It only makes sense for the discerning bride to consider using a calligrapher to help with her overall wedding scheme and design. “Why choose a calligrapher?” you might ask. Your wedding invitation is the first thing your guests will see about your wedding. It sets the tone...
