When is the Right Time to Get Married?

khass @ 9:34 am

It has almost been two years since I got married. I know time really flies by!

Now and then a friend will ask, ‘How did you know he was the right guy” and “How long did you date” all those kinds of good questions. Everyone wants to know those kinds of things, but, especially if they are also thinking about getting married.

These are totally normal questions people ask themselves. How do you know when you have met the right person and are ready to get married?

Here are a few things you may want to ask yourself before you get married:

1. Do you have similar interests?

2. Are your life long goals in tune, do you want the same things?

3. Make sure to look at their character, are they a good person, someone that you will be there for through everything and they will do the same for you?

4. Do you cherish each other’s company? Does he make you laugh?

5. Is he supportive of your goals, interests and hobbies and want the best for you?

6. Could you live without the other person?

If you said yes, to all these things he is probably the man for you. Hopefully he feels the same.

When you do get engaged there is a lot of planning to do. Make sure to give yourself at least a year before you set your wedding date. This way you won’t feel as rushed and you won’t put stress on your relationship. This is a big change and you want to take it slow.

Get his opinion on the wedding planning. When you are shopping for wedding invitations have him sit with you as you search for the perfect personalized wedding stationery. You may be surprised by the great wedding ideas he has and learn something new. Maybe he prefers a more traditional embossed or monogrammed wedding invitation.

It is important that the wedding is about both of you. It is both your days to cherish and remember for a lifetime.

The Secrets of Success

Barret @ 11:42 am

The key to a successful summer party is proper planning. Once all the elements are in place, everything else seems to take care of itself. So as an avid list maker, I always pull out a pad of paper from my personalized stationery set and write out details for the perfect get-together.

Yes, I actually have multiple pads of paper spread all over the house. I’m one of those people that has to write everything down or else I’ll forget it. My brain is filled with way too many details and I’m always multi-tasking. I find making lists of the important things saves my sanity. My friends and family make fun of me, but hey, it works for me!

Anyway, back to the party plans. Once I get the details all worked out and written on paper, everything else is a cakewalk.

1.      Pick a theme – Depending on what you’re celebrating, the décor and accessories will be determined by the event. Christmas, Easter and 4th of July are simple and obvious. But others take a bit more creativity. And of course, your desired theme will dictate what your personalized invites will look like. Colorful and flashy, or elegant and classy, these invites are sure to get attention. And don’t forget the festive customized napkins, which will give added flair to your table, guaranteed!

2.      Pick a location – Is the party going to be in your dining room? In the media room, complete with HDTV and surround sound? Or on your deck in the back yard? The beauty of a perfect presentation is going to be determined by where it’s going to take place. When you’re indoors, you can get a bit more extravagant with the balloons and streamers. But outdoors, you have to plan for whatever Mother Nature is going to throw at you.

3.      Prepare the menu – Between burgers, brats and beer OR filet, garlic mashed potatoes and red wine; the food you serve will set the mood. Paper plates or fine china? Plastic cups or crystal flutes? Chips and dip or caviar? S’mores or tiramisu?  Every little detail counts.

4.      Create an ambiance – The music you select will have a huge impact on everyone’s mood, so choose wisely. The Black Eyed Peas scream ‘Let’s dance!’ whereas Dean Martin softly croons ‘Let’s relax and enjoy a martini.’  So set the proper tone for a night of slow dancing with a loved one or shaking things up and rockin’ the room!

5.      Send them away happy – When all is said and done, why not send them off with delicious homemade goodies to take home? It’s so easy to take one of those cute personalized napkins and fill them with treats they can enjoy for later. Perhaps wrap it up in colorful cellophane and tie it with a bow. Easy. Simple. Perfect!

And of course, most importantly on that list, is to HAVE FUN!
