Wedding Tips …

Planning that Special Dream Wedding is usually at the top of every couples list, but when it comes to when it comes to getting married,, however having that very special beautiful  wedding ceremony with that personal touch within your financial means should be the top priority.

One of the new trends for Weddings and Receptions that Brides and Grooms are doing is forgoing the traditional three-tiered wedding cake and having a dessert table instead of spending a great deal of money on a cake neither the Bride or Groom particularly like.
