With a little imagination and some planning you can save loads on your wedding and reception budget and at the same time create an amazing and very personal wedding event.
Home weddings lend a kind of intimacy and closeness to a wedding that simply can’t be duplicated when using an outside wedding venue. If your home isn’t quite large enough to accommodate the number of guests you have in mind, you might consider asking a family member or a close family friend with a larger home if they would be willing to host your wedding for you. Chances are, whoever you ask would be delighted to host your wedding for you. A home wedding can provide you with the best of all options. It’s a relaxed and light hearted event, you’ll have the freedom to naturally express who the two of you are when celebrating your nuptials among your closest family and friends.
However, if this isn’t an option, then you are likely to have a local community center near or a public park center that offers venues or covered shelters. It you select a covered shelter, normally family and friends will jump at the chance to help you decorate. Public parks generally offer a variety of beautifully landscaped options to choose from. Many community parks offer delightful ponds, stately fountains and / or impressive waterfalls to use as the perfect backdrop for your wedding event. Also, with community parks and community centers, the price is very economical compared to traditional wedding venues. Of course, the possible downside to using a community center or park venue will be that they generally don’t allow alcoholic beverages. But if that isn’t a concern for you, then you can have a perfectly beautiful wedding location for a minimal price. Another excellent consideration is a Wedding Chapel.
You’ll likely find that as you announce your intention to have a Home or Park Wedding to friends and family, many will likely step forward to offer you the use of their hobbies and the skills to help you pull your wedding event together in beautiful and surprising ways. So stay open and receptive to those that volunteer their special assistance. Imagination, creativity and flexibility equal amazing and unique one of kind a weddings that everyone will remember and cherish always. Collaborating with those closest to you and remaining open to suggestion, you may well find that creating your wedding event has become more fun than you could have possibly imagined. And if you are the kind that enjoys going with the flow and delegating then the wedding planning stress will be minimal. A very good thing!
So feel free to take inventory of everyone’s generous and heart centered intentions to help out with the wedding plans, you’ll likely have an absolute treasure chest of wonderful options at your disposal. If you are going for the community center or community park wedding option, keep in mind that even these venues book up well in advance, and most defiantly be sure to reserve your Wedding Officiate as soon as you decided on your wedding location.
You don’t want to be the “Bride to Be” that's so distracted with the wedding planning end of things that you completely forgot about having a Wedding Officiate reserved to officiate your wedding! Yikes! Just like Wedding Venues, Wedding Officiates also book well in advance. Once you have these two areas secured, “Wedding Venue and Wedding Officiant”, then you can dedicate yourself completely to planning your wedding details. Jump into your creative zone, stay receptive and flexible, then have a blast making the most incredible wedding ever! See You at the Altar, Rev. Allie

by PetSide.com It's your special day, and you'd like everyone special in your life to be there -- including your pet! Here are five ways to include your pet in your wedding, whether or not they can be present at the ceremony.
1. Wedding Party Member One of the more traditional ways to include your pet is as ring bearer or flower dog. This works well if your pet is very well behaved and easy to train. You may choose to use faux rings on the ring bearer's pillow in case they fall off or Smokey heads the wrong way. Practice makes perfect. Be sure to run through the ceremony with your pet a few of times so they get used to their role. You can also make your pet a groomsmen or bridesmaid, but don't expect them to help plan the bridal shower! Tip: Make sure everyone attending the wedding knows a pet will be there. This way any guest who is allergic or afraid of pets can be prepared.
2. A Walk down the Aisle Have a family member carry your pet down the aisle and hold them during the ceremony. This is a good choice for pets that are not easily trained, or get skittish around large groups of people. If your pet doesn't like to be held for long periods of time, you could place them in a carrier where they can watch. Having your pet's favorite toy or familiar bed also may make them more comfortable. Be sure to have a plan B. If your pet gets sick or doesn't cooperate you may have to leave Fido at home or out of the plans. Tip: Have your pet carried in a basket or on a pillow for a special touch.
3. Write your Pet into the Vows If your pet can't be at the ceremony, have the officiator mention your pets or write them into your vows. While talking about everything you and your soon-to-be-spouse will share, include your special pet. Or tell a funny story about when your pet and partner first met or how they learned to love each other. This inclusion adds a personal touch that lets everyone know how important your dog or cat is in your lives. 4.
Include them in Wedding Photos Have your pet in the wedding party or family photos on the big day. You can also include them in your official wedding photos taken prior to the ceremony. If your pet isn't allowed at the reception, try putting nicely framed pictures of them dressed up on each of the tables.
