    FOUND THIS ON PINTEREST AND HAD TO SHARE.



    AFTER THE WEDDING TAKE THE FLOWERS AND DONATE THEM TO A NURSING HOME OR RETIREMENT HOME.  TRY TO GIVE SOME FLOWERS TO EACH OF THE LADIES THERE.  AND ASK THEM IF THEY HAVE ANY MARRAIGE ADIVCE FOR YOU.  


     i personally recommend the retirement home.  i have been to a ton of nursing homes, and in my experience the patients seem to be more heavily medicated.  if you truely want to get advice and enjoy the experienec, then i would go to a retirement home where the people are ususally healthier and more lucid.  this is a really good idea.  especially if you are planning to wait a few days to go on your honeymoon.

    From early love lessons to SAT prep, moms teach us a lot. They're by our sides through thick and thin, and, with any luck, have been the major helping hand in many of life's biggest moments. Sometimes it seems near impossible to pay Mom back for all her love and support, but hey—she is your mom. And because she's your mom, we guarantee she'll go all misty-eyed from even the smallest of gestures. Which is precisely why we're using this Mother's Day to brainstorm thoughtful ways to show some appreciation for the lady at your wedding. Our favorite ideas (besides wearing her wedding dress, of course) follow below—let us know what you'll be doing in the comments! 


    1. Have her walk you down the aisle!
    Don't think you need to find a male replacement for that moment if Dad's no longer in your life. In one of our favorite features on our blog One Lovely Day, Silka was escorted by her mother, and we have never seen a woman look more proud. Another idea: give one arm to Dad, one arm to Mom, and have both parents walk you down the aisle. 

    2. Give her a flower before the altar.
    Dad still doing the giving away? Take a moment before you step onto the altar to give your mother a flower from your bouquet. Purposefully singling her out right before you say your vows will show her (and everyone in attendance) how crucial her support has been in getting you there. The gesture will become even more special if you tuck one of her favorite blooms into your bouquet and present her with that.

    3. Set aside a space dedicated to her memory.
    This beautiful idea comes from one of our Twitter followers (@MsMakeItRain29): If your mother has since passed, place a framed photo of her and her favorite flowers on the chair where she would have sat.

    4. Include Mom in the getting ready fun.
    Book her a seat next to yours while you and your bridesmaids are getting your hair and makeup done. Involving her in this girls-only tradition will let her know know that you see her as a friend and confidant, which is the ultimate compliment.

    5. Incorporate her wedding wear into your ceremony.
    In her New Jersey wedding, Marisa draped a dear late aunt's veil over her chuppah. We think this is an excellent compromise if you'd prefer to keep your bridal ensemble to yourself, but still want to show mom some respect for her marital history.

    6. Recreate a moment from her wedding day.
    Sort through Mom's wedding pics and select a photo you find particularly striking (bonus points if it includes her parents). Suprise her by bringing the shot to your wedding and recreating the pose with your photographer—we guarantee she'll be touched by the gesture.

  • My friend in France recently attended the annual 2013 ‘Diner en Blanc’ or ‘White Dinner’ in Paris. The pictures are absolutely amazing, and looking at them inspired me to have a ‘Diner En Blanc’ reception at my wedding.



    I had been wanting to throw a ‘diner en blanc’ party for a long time so I decided my wedding was the perfect opportunity, to throw my white party. I specified to my wedding guests that everything would be white and everyone must wear white.  I’ve recently learned a lot about Candy Buffets and I really do think that they make any party look gorgeous and festive.  I knew I didn’t want to spend a ton on the buffet because I had already spent so much on my wedding and reception. So my goal was to create a beautiful buffet with $35 or less. I didn’t know if that was even plausible when I set the goal- but I am here to say to you, it is actually very do-able!



    After more and more research I am here to explain what I learned about candy buffets: a candy buffet triples as a wedding decoration, a party favor for your guests, and your dessert (minus the cake, of course!), so a candy bar is worth spending some of your budget on.



    A candy buffet is actually perfect for any event you want to have, not just big events like weddings and baby showers but also for smaller events like birthday parties and dinner parties. It’s because a candy bar can actually be done on a very small budget, and will end up making your event look gorgeous, classy and lavish without costing you much at all. The total I spent on this buffet was 33.62!  I used jars and glasses that I found around the house so that I didn’t have to buy new glassware.  I only purchased a pound of most of the candy, but ended up getting 2 pounds of yogurt pretzels and the taffy.  All in all the candy buffet was a huge success and the wedding reception was a blast!  I never thought that the candy buffet was going to be such a huge hit!



     The Candy We Picked For Our buffet:



    White Malted Milk Balls
    Sweet’s Salt Water Vanilla Taffy
    White Gummy Bears
    White Sour Balls
    White Jordan Almonds
    Yogurt Pretzels

    We Purchased all of our candy from candygalaxy.com!  They were fantastic and really helped me with any question I had concerning my buffet!
