Ok listen up all you newly engaged ladies! You're engaged... you've set the date... and now its time to get the ball rolling! Now and days weddings are starting to be planned as far as 18 months in advance! So if you don't want to be the one to get "second options" instead of first, then get your vendors/venues contracted now!!! (Hint: "CONTRACT"...very important!) Ladies, please remember to READ them CAREFULLY and ASK questions when you don't understand something! Doing this will help determine the kind of wedding day you'll have. TRUST ME! You don't want to end up like this bride down below! So make sure you have a plan and or a PLANNER!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love is definitely in the air! I'd just like to take a moment and wish everyone a very, very Happy Valentine's Day! All of you are just so special and dear to me and I just want to wish you all, a day and a lifetime... of true love and happiness!
I will be spending my day working on the finishing touches of a teenager's birthday party tonight entitled "Hottie's Day Parade"! Must be nice to have a birthday on Valentine's Day! I will be sure to take lots of pictures and post them on Snapshots! I will also be out shopping and making special arrangements to surprise the love of my life Todd, of 7 years, with a gift that expresses how much I truly love him. I look forward to that moment ;)
Also, it my pleasure to announce that I will be extending the deadline for the Valentine's Day contest until tomorrow night. You will have until Sunday at 9pm eastern standard time to submit your entries. I am so excited and can't wait to see and read your stories!

In Love with Color!

Are you the type of person who are sick of seeing the same basic colors on everything? Then why not spice up your wedding or event with some bold colors! Start creating a wedding scrapbook! You can use this to keep track of your favorite colors, ideas, theme, inspirations, and many more for your event! This will come in handy when planning your wedding or event from color, theme, decor, and right down to the very last detail! So basically, wherever you go...your book goes! The only hard part about doing this is deciding on your color palette.

Here are some ideas in helping you choose your color palette:

1. Your Favorite piece of jewelry: What color is your favorite bracelet, earrings, necklace? Are they modern, chic, classic? You can use this as a starting point!

2. Seasons: Take your cues from the colors of the seasons. You can choose between pastels, bright and bold colors, or use a combination of both. You'd be surprised at what you might come up with!

3. Invitations & Stationary: This is another great way to decide on color palette. With all of its fabulous designs and colors, you may even find one that will be the inspiration of your wedding or event designs!

4. Location: If you have already booked your ceremony & reception site, take into consideration the decor of the sites such as: wall color, carpeting, scenery (if outside site), and other accents.

5. Culture: In particular cultures, certain colors are very symbolic. Such as red is a favored color for Chinese Weddings because it symbolized Good Fortune. Or in India, red means the color of purity (used in wedding outfits).

6. Cocktail Drinks: Ever been amazed at the color of your drink? Maybe you thought that the hot pink Cosmo or fabulous green Apple martini would be a great mixture of colors! Who would've ever thought that you could create such a color palette watching a bartender mix your drinks! An idea to ponder on whenever you're out ;)

7. Fabrics: Going to a fabric store or using a fabric book, is a great way to explore the different colors, texture, and designs that fabrics have to offer. You may even find the perfect fabric for your wedding dress or bridesmaids dresses.

**These were just some of the creative ideas used in selecting color palettes. Have fun with it!
