Food for Thoughts
While cruising on the internet looking for ideas about wedding planning in the 21st century, pages and pages of ideas using specialized apps for the bride popped up. It’s not just Pinterest and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram that have a bride’s attention. There are numerous apps for cellphones that can help walk a bride through the maze of planning a wedding. But despite all of the 21st century technological perks for today’s brides, nothing beats a face-to-face meeting with a wedding planner and vendors to plan the most important day of your life.
9 to 12 months before
Twenty-first century technology has touched nearly every aspect of wedding planning, and finding the perfect flowers is no exception.
Today’s brides have options when it comes to getting ready for their nuptials. They can visit a salon to get their hair done then return home to apply their makeup before slipping into their gown; have a pampering party for their bridesmaids at a local spa, or on-site at the venue if it has a comfortable dressing room, or go it alone at their favorite salon to have some much-needed me time before walking down the aisle.
Wedding photos today are all about capturing those little moments when you think no one is watching. It could be the first romantic kiss after the first nuptial kiss, the first look, a quiet moment with mom and dad or grandparents.
When picturing your perfect honeymoon, do you like the idea of a romantic escape and adventure? Perhaps traveling to the other side of the world is beyond your budget or your comfort zone. Consider an excursion here at home. Whether you’re a couple who loves rails, romantic cabins or upbeat hikes and zip lining, there are a variety of stateside options.
WHO & WHEN: Texas Law requires couples to obtain their marriage license at least 72 hours before they are to be married. Exceptions to the 72 hours: Active military status — OR — a waiver issued by a judge.
