Happy Saturday to My Readers! Today’s topic is sort of a preemptory lecture for all of my clients out there, but it’s also very useful guidance for every bride. The gifts you purchase for your wedding attendants — bridesmaids and groomsmen — are supposed to be thank you presents for the time and energy they are putting into […]
Wedding Party Gifts Are Supposed to Be a Thank You to Your Attendants, Not a Sneaky Way to Dress Everybody Alike!
Good morning! Well, I got my wish and it really rained on us last night! Off and on, but we got up to check the windows to make sure it wasn’t raining in during the wee hours because it was raining so hard. You can really hear the rain coming from one side of the house or […]

Hola Brides and Grooms! I’d like to dedicate this blog to a very special bride of mine who has a nightmare of a wedding party. Usually, it’s the bridesmaids who are holy terrors and have to be bitch-slapped into shape. This time, the groomsmen are the ones behaving like a bunch of bratty girls.
