For My Daughter’s Wedding Web Site

February 10th, 2009

I haven’t posted in a while.  I’ve been using my spare time to try to get my web site up and running.  So here it is–For My Daughter’s Wedding.com.  I invite you to visit it when you get a chance.  I particularly would like your wedding stories.  There is a page by which you can contact me with ideas, suggestions, or experiences you have with wedding planning–in any capacity–bride, mom, maid of honor, bridesmaid, guest, etc.  I would love to hear from you!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  May the peace and joy of Christmas be yours always!

Gorgeous Reception Photo

December 22nd, 2008

Ok, I would love for my daughter’s reception to look like this.  Unfortunately, I don’t have the money and if I did, I would not want to spend it on a one time event.  However, in case any of you do and would spend your money this way–this is one of the prettiest scenes I’ve come across.  These people definitely do not travel in the same social circles I do, but it’s fun to dream!

Christmas Weddings

December 15th, 2008

Christmas is that magical time of the year when the world is beautiful. So why not incorporate some of that beauty into your wedding. The photos above are a few ideas for Christmas wedding decorating.

Back to Weddings

December 15th, 2008

OK, so now my halls are decked, my house is clean and the Sunday School class Christmas party that we hosted occurred Saturday night.  It was fun–good food, good friends.  Too much good food in fact!

So now, I can start thinking about weddings, blogs and web sites again–at least for the next few days.

Christmas is a lovely time for a wedding.  The only drawback to a Christmas wedding I can think of is weather.  A big snow or ice storm the night before or day of your wedding could cause major problems, but besides that there are so many ways to have a beautiful holiday wedding.

One of the advantages to a holiday wedding is that it provides the opportunity for family who have to travel to your wedding to combine that with their holiday travel.  Another is that most churches and reception venues will already be decorated for Christmas so that could save some money on decorating expenses.

If you are planning a December wedding for next year, go shopping for decorating materials after Christmas this year.  Hit the sales for white lights, silk flowers, ribbon, etc.  Also, this is a good time to look for dresses as many are marked down at this time.

A Little Behind

December 11th, 2008

I am a little behind in my postings.  I’ve been busy “decking my halls with boughs of holly.”  I’ll be back as soon as possible!  Hope everyone’s Christmas season is progressing splendidly!!!

Wedding Entertainment

December 1st, 2008

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I really do have so much to be thankful for.  I hope you do also.

Yesterday I attended the wedding and reception of the daughter of a friend of mine.  At the reception we were entertained by a magician.  It was quite entertaining.  However, it was the first time I have attended a reception where there was entertainment–other than dancing.

If any of you have seen anything similar at a reception I would appreciate some information from you.  Please leave a comment here or email me at 4mydaughterswedding@gmail.com.
