Q and A Time! And Last Call for the Cold Plasma Giveaway!

Wedding season is upon us!
OK, it really never ends anymore!

But before I go on...
The Perricone Cold Plasma Giveaway ends 4/28
Enter HERE!
 I first posted this back in September
{I think I hard 2 readers then}
but, I get this one particular question a lot.
So, I figured...let's revisit the mystery of the gift.

MYTH: The cost of the gift (received from the invited guest) should be equivalent to what the per-person cost of the meal is.

TRUTH: No. No. No. An invitation to a wedding is not a trade out. A guest is not expected to first of all even know what you are spending per-person, much less be forced to spend that amount on a gift. The bride or groom does not get to dictate the price range of their wedding gifts (even if they tried to do so with their registry!). Now, the expectations of gifts - money vs. actual gifts - and the "cost" of the gifts do vary from region to region, so you may need to adapt this advice to your particular area.

Happy Planning!

An Idea to Book

I L-O-V-E bloggers and their creative ideas.
This amazing Monday,
I bring you one truly fantabulous project from
Jacqui at craftymcgee!

When I saw this, I instantly had visions of
how great this project is and the additional
creative possibilities it holds.
So check this out!
A great memory book filled with cards, memories
and well wishes from the guests...
All made out of an old BOOK!
Jacqui's idea was inspired by a wedding she
attended for a couple who loves their books.
It is a wonderful way to capture the style, personality
or theme of a couples special day.
It will look great sitting on your
coffee table or bookshelf for years!

You can read all about Jacqui's process HERE.

Fanciful Chandelier

I love pretty things...probably why I love weddings.
A couple of months ago, over at 504 Main,
I created a Birthday Chandelier for my hubby.
I had every intention of redoing this project into
a fantastical wedding decoration...
but alas time has gotten away from me...
and besides Christie at Pretty Paper Book took this idea
and made it so beautiful and magical,
I thought I would just share her beautiful creation with you.

Is that not G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!?
Can you imagine how beautiful these chandeliers
would be hanging in trees from arbors...
anywhere at a wedding or wedding shower.

The original Birthday Chandelier. 
 If you visit this post there is a tutorial.
If you make one...please let me know...I'd love to share it!

Go visit Pretty Paper Book...she has amazing paper creations!
