  • 3You and the love of your life have found each other and an exciting time in your life is beginning to unfold, a time when you proclaim your love and devotion for one another in the company of those most important to you.

    As editor, I would like to welcome you to Eagle Newspapers new and improved Wedding Planner, which will run this month and next year. Throughout my career here at Eagle, I have been responsible for many of our special sections, but none have grabbed my imagination or enthusiasm the way our wedding supplements have. When I was married almost 11 years ago, I had the wedding of my dreams, but it took a lot of behind-the-scenes work and I had to pay attention to an unbelievable amount of little details.

    The day of your wedding is one of the most important and special of your life, and the purpose of this guide is to help you prioritize your preparations for the big day. From the minister to the music, the dress to the first dance, there is a lot of ground to cover, and the decisions that need to be made can sometimes be overwhelming.

    On page 7 of this booklet is a master checklist to follow when trying to take care of the many details involved in planning a wedding. Pivotal steps will be discussed in more detail on the following pages, and a form to guide you in announcing both your engagement and wedding are on pages 8 and 14 respectively.

    Use this guide as a reference to help the planning process go smoothly, but remember to have fun as you are preparing to say I do. Its important to enlist the help of friends and/or family in the process. In fact, having the help of those closest to you can make this exciting time even more special.

    Congratulations!Jennifer Wingjwing@eagle

    1the dateSetting Now that youve made the decision to marry, people will be asking you when the event will occur. Even if it is in the distant future, its a good idea to have a ready answer. Maybe In 2012 might suit as a proper answer, but if you are planning on marrying less than two years from your engagement, you should probably get the ball rolling with a more specific answer. In order to determine when is best to hold your nuptials, ask yourself the following questions:

    1.What season suits my vision for a wedding?2.Do I want an indoor or outdoor ceremony?3.Are any months definitely out?You and your betrothed can then narrow down a

    date by discussing what day of the week you want to wed. Availability of the wedding venue, whether a church or other locale, can also be a factor in your decision.

    4Pick your partyDeciding who will stand up for you in your wedding can be stressful in and of itself. Many people may just assume you will want them to be included in your wedding party, but remember, it is your day, and any decisions you make from this point on should be based upon what you and your fiance want. Typically, you will want people who have been there for you in the past, and there is no hard or fast rule about who you can or cannot have in your bridal entourage.

    2,3Reserve, reserveKey to planning your wedding is the venue for both the ceremony and reception. It is SO important to make sure you reserve both sites as early as possible, especially if either location is a popular one that tends to book early. Make sure you have an alternate date in mind in case one or both of these venues are booked and that there may be a deposit required in order to reserve the space. See related story, page 19.

    carnations possess a history that is deeply filled with meaning, as it serves as one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world. The ruffled appearance and extended blooming shelf life makes the carnation an attractive selection for wedding flowers. A bouquet of carnations holds the meaning of fascination, distinction, love, and is also associated with purity and luck.
