Money Saving tip

Before renting stemware or flatware for your reception…check into Buying VS. Renting.

For example at Ikea you can get a complete cutlery set for 100 people for just about $100 dollars VS. renting the same for about $120.

If you buy it you can keep what you need for your household and even sell the rest on Craigslist.

New Ideas

Floral Chair decorations aren’t new but a new way to incorporate them is to just add a small bouquet to only a few chairs for major impact.


Dear LeeAnn,

My son is getting married for the 2nd time. It is the first marriage for my future daughter-in-law. My question…is it appropriate to invite many of the same guests that attended his first wedding? I am more concerned about friends.



Dear Jillian,

It is perfectly acceptable to invite guests from the first wedding to your son's second wedding. The only exception would be if it will make things uncomfortable for anyone at the second wedding. Make sure you discuss the guest list with your son and his new bride-to-be.

Warm Regards,


Love It!

*Herbal cocktails at your reception

*What’s old is new….think broaches, escort cards, handkerchiefs

*Shopping for your wedding at the grocery store… you can get favors, place cards, flowers, cupcakes or wedding cake, emergency bridal kit etc!

You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore....but let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
