Irish Wedding theme  It was the luck of the Irish the day you found each other, and you want to celebrate your Irish heritage, or your fondness for St. Patrick’s Day, with an Irish theme wedding. You can bring a bit of the auld sod to your special event with some careful planning and a cautious eye for those mischievous leprechauns!

Garden theme wedding  He has brought sunshine to your life, and your love continues to blossom and grow with each passing day. Invite your guests to celebrate this budding romance with a garden theme wedding! The best season to pull off a stunning garden wedding would be spring or early summer. The flowers are in bloom, and you have beautiful, lush green landscaping just about everywhere. You can have the wedding right in your own backyard, or look for a traditional English style garden, a horticultural center, or a country estate home with exquisite gardens to host your event. While an outdoor wedding is always beautiful, you might want to consider renting tents to use for shelter in the event of a bit of liquid sunshine falling during your festivities.

Country theme wedding You were raised on country sunshine. You’re happy with the simple things. And now you’re getting married! You want to show the world how a country girl celebrates her happy day in the tradition of the old Saturday night dance, with flair!

Angel Theme Wedding Your love affair has been absolute heaven on earth, so why not celebrate with an angel theme wedding? The sweet faced cherubs bring to mind Cupid, romance, and love, and would be the perfect way to celebrate your special day.
When planning your angel theme wedding, you want to bring in things that conjure up images of all things ethereal. Light colored, billowy fabrics, twinkle lights, and gold accents would be a great way to set the mood. Bring in Greek columns, and use twinkle lights and ivy to entwine the columns to frame areas of your reception – the couple’s table, the cake table, the dance floor. The fabrics should be light, soft to the touch, and draped so they give a lush but soft appearance.

Fall wedding theme idea : As the crisp air of autumn settles in and the colors of fall fill the trees, it seems the perfect time to plan for the wedding of your dreams. From the brilliant fall colors to the rich luxurious fabrics to the hearty and heartwarming foods, autumn is a season made for romance and celebrations. Use the bounty of the harvest and the colors of nature to help you create your dream fall wedding.

On your wedding day, you want to sparkle. You've seen the natural glow of brides, and always wondered how they achieved that special beauty. While much of it comes from just being a bride, there are many additional things you can do to help yourself attain that healthy, radiant look.A solid regimen of skin, hair, and nail care is the best way to build that "bride-beautiful" appearance. By enhancing your natural good looks, you will lay the foundation upon which you can add the extra details that make a bride an individual. Good skin care requires adherence to a comprehensive plan at least two months prior to your wedding date. First, choose a gentle skin cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type (dry, oily, or combination). 

When you're reading a bridal magazine, it's easy to get swept up in the images of elegant black tie weddings at cathedrals and posh hotels. But don't let yourself fall into the trap of thinking "the bigger, the better." Fancy is fine, but your wedding should be a reflection of your personality. So although you may be eager to view banquet halls and try on wedding gowns, determining your wedding style now will be time well spent. Also, by knowing what very formal, formal, semi-formal and informal mean to the pros in the wedding business, you'll be able to communicate better with your service providers.

Fun & Games at the Rehearsal Dinner


The bride wants perfect. The folks want seconds. And you're caught in the middle. So what do you do? Better get a plan.

Break The Ice But Don't Fall Through
The rehearsal dinner, traditionally given by the groom's parents, should give you and your fiance a chance to unwind before the big day. This is "the party before the party," where the people closest to you come together without the fuss and solemnity of the real thing.

So why the sour face and the twiddling thumbs? Well, you say, there's her side and my side and a lot of dead air in between. Some cheap advice: a little icebreaker will go a long way.

False Teeth
Give your guests something to play with and they'll entertain themselves. June and Richard Thorne set some gag hillbilly teeth on the napkins at their son's rehearsal dinner. It was their first meeting with the bride's friends and family, and they wanted to set the tone for fun. After a couple of clumsy introductions, some cagey small talk into a regular hullabaloo.

Roast 'Em
Sally and Mike Breuner placed a bell on every plate with a note that said, 'ring and do tell.' Guests would shake the bell to quiet the room and then share an embarrassing tale about the bride or groom. A word of warning: this is where that story about the Macon punch and the rented canoe will surface!

There Once Was a Man from Nantucket�
Wayne and Cynthia Lucas began a poem that traveled from person to person, with each guest adding two lines: "John met Jane through a mutual friend. Before him, there were lots of men.�" You get the picture.

Ancient History
Ralph and Jennifer Diggs had chocolate bars made with childhood photos of their son and daughter-in-law printed on the wrappers. Cute, right? Try it with pork rinds. The wrappers listed the couples' time and place of birth, their measurements and star sign, their favorite toy and first Halloween costume.

With a few cheap props and the tab on pops, you can bring a little wing-ding to the darkest meat lair. Who knows� you might get the priest to loosen his collar.

What Every Couple Needs to Know Before Marriage
While many engaged couples talk about how they'll spend the rest of their lives together, they neglect to talk about how they'll spend their money. Don't be shy about discussing this with your fiancé - the truth of the matter is, you should talk about it. "From a legal perspective it is essential that couples discuss finances before getting married," says attorney Carol Elias Zolla of the Beck Law Firm in San Jose, California.



"I have many clients who have joint accounts but have a 'feeling' that some of it came from an inheritance or was earned before marriage and so they think that it belongs to them. With a few exceptions, once separate and community property assets are combined, they are considered community property and are owned half by each spouse," Zolla explains.

"In California (and every other community property state), it makes a big difference whether you combine accounts or separate them," Zolla says. "Salaries earned during marriage are community property (unless there is an agreement to the contrary in a pre- or post-nuptial agreement)."

"So, if you combine a separate property account from money earned or inherited prior to marriage with deposits from salary earned during marriage (even if it's just salary earned by the one spouse), the account becomes community property." If a couple were to get divorced, it may be possible for them to determine the source of the funds, through "tracing" the assets. Once the assets are traced the spouses may be able to recover their separate property contributions. "However," Zolla stresses, "tracing becomes extremely difficult if the account is used for joint purchases or grows in value over time." The couple should plan on keeping their bank records forever if they intend to rely on the tracing method.

In other words: Kathy has $40,000 in a savings account. $30,000 of it came to her when her father died two years ago; the other $10,000 is what she has saved bit by bit over the years she's been working. When she and Bill get married, they decide to put $1,000 ($500 from Kathy's paycheck and $500 from Bill's) into this savings account each month. Even after just one month - when Bill has contributed only $500 to the account - the account would become community property and he would be legally entitled to half (in this case, $20,500), unless the couple had all the paperwork necessary to trace the source of the funds.

Because of this, Zolla recommends that even if the husband and wife already have separate checking or investment accounts, they should still open new accounts when they get married. "Newlyweds also should consider how to hold title to their real estate," she adds. "It makes a difference for inheritance and capital gains purposes."

In short, Zolla urges engaged couples to discuss financial matters before the wedding. But even if your wedding has come and gone, it's still a good idea to sit down with your husband or wife and figure out what's best for you. "Couples should not wait until their first joint income tax return to think about these issues, especially if they have been working before marriage and have substantial assets (or substantial debts) for the issue of filing taxes jointly or separately to make a difference."

Of course, Zolla also recommends that couples obtain legal advice by a competent attorney in their own state to explore all of the property issues related to their marriage.
