Tip of the Month

Reduce your wedding planning stress by doing a few important things. First, make sure you get sleep the week of your wedding. Second, make sure you are eating and drinking enough water leading up to your big day. Third, exercise to relieve stress.

While it may be easy to skip all of this stuff, one thing to remember is that a stressed out, tired bride does not look good in photos or on video. Take breaks from your wedding planning to take naps, or go for a long walk to get some fresh air and center yourself.

Bridal Q & A

This month's question is from Lorraine who writes:

"I have just fully furnished my home and am having a wedding rehearsal dinner at my home. I am concerned about serving red wine and wanted to get your input on serving white wine only along with beer and non-alcoholic beverages as well?"

Dear Lorraine,

It is totally understandable that you would like to protect the investment you just put into your home. There are many things other than red wine that you can serve.

White wine and beer are definitely acceptable. Depending on the menu you are serving you may have a wine connoisseur in the crowd that might challenge you on your selection, but it won't be the end of the world.

An additional option is to have a signature drink to go along with white wine and beer.

To your wedding! Danielle & Stephen
