Wedding Planning

I’ve told you before that my mother planned my first wedding by herself, even having the first fitting done on my wedding dress. When I got home, I literally only had to have the final fitting and show up at the church. My second wedding I planned myself with the help of a handy-dandy 3×5 index card holder. This was a much more casual affair. Now not everyone does it that way when it comes to weddings, Wedding Strategies can walk you through the process, step by step.


The ceremony and reception page covers the gamut from the order of events to determining the style of wedding you prefer. The information on traditions is very nice and includes sections on Jewish and Italian customs, as well as info on that famous “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” Don’t like the traditional vows, but don’t know what to say? Here are poetry, quotes and vows to help you out. The fashion and beauty section includes articles on every member of the wedding party, from bridal make-up to groomsmen.

Ahhh, the honeymoon! Twice married, and never had one myself. Hmmph! If you don’t have to jump right back into real life the destinations here look wonderful. Don’t forget to plan your honeymoon well so you don’t forget the important stuff. Passports, anyone?

After the wedding and honeymoon, you’ll still have a couple of things that need to be done. Sending out thank you notes and changing your name will finish up the wedding business, so you can get on to being married.

For women, that generally means things like picking up socks from the floor by the hamper, and perhaps a bit of ironing. Make sure that the guy you choose has cool socks, and knows the virtues of permanent press clothing. I’m blessed that the pride I feel at being called Mrs. MyLastName makes up for any inconvenience these other issues may cause. Guess I chose wisely, eh?
