A fall wedding may be one of the smartest decisions you make...moneywise. Mother Nature can provide a rustic fall wedding ceremony and no charge for the setting, russet brown oaks and orange-red sugar maples, enough free pinecones to decorate a thousand tables, unlimited parking, great acoustics…everything but Swarovski crystal chandeliers. Whether you choose a park, a country inn, winery, ranch or farm you can exchange vows under a crimson sky surrounded by chrysanthemums, hydrangeas, lilies and sweet golden sunflowers. Tables and chairs at your outdoor fall wedding reception will be covered in layers of gold, russet, sage, rust, yellow, chocolate brown or orange. And your fall wedding cake? Wonderfully aromatic with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and maple, filled with cream cheese and decorated with edible marizipan fruit and autumn leaves.
Catalina Island weddings - why not at that exquisite Art Deco landmark, surrounded by the sea on three sides, known as the Catalina Casino? Fifty foot ceilings and sparkling Tiffany chandeliers above you and an enormous maple, oak and rich rosewood dance floor below. All the Hollywood elite of the 30s and 40s elbowed their way through these elegant French doors to see and be seen. I grew up a short 20 mile boat ride from Santa Catalina Island and there's a reason they call it the "Island of Romance." A sweeping veranda surrounds the lavish vintage ballroom with breathtaking views of nearby Avalon.
Personalized chocolate lollipops - available in heart shaped or round, are available in dark, milk, or white chocolate and are packaged in a cello bag with a white satin bow. How much? About $3.50 each, unless you order more than 50 and then the price goes down...a little. As shown, your photo and custom message can be printed on the front or choose from one of these beautiful designs - beach theme, butterfly, damask, double happiness, fall, flowers, garden, and holiday inspired snowflakes.
Dad, who taught you that jumper cables are your friend and not something to be feared, and Mom who taught you that strangers should be feared and are not your friends, deserve your blessings and praise. And, of course, his parents deserve the same. These messages I borrowed from Wedding Program Thank You Messages and reworded them especially for parents.
