Weddings Made Easy Tuesday, Dec 31 2013 

After 20 years of performing weddings I have developed a lot of good advice for couples beginning to plan on getting married. Over those years I have done over 2,000 weddings give or take 100 more. Most of that advice can be found on a blog I keep at Blogger. It is not organized well but there is the search function to find things. I will try this year to use WordPress in a more organize fashion, beginning with the post on the Wedding Planning Checklist. That needs to be the first step. Along with getting a notebook or binder to keep you information in one place. Remember too it is a couples effort, not a one person activity, but one can be the lead information gatherer as long as the information is shared. Go to my blog and get the list now to print out and use.

The Fleur De Lis and New Orleans Weddings Friday, Jan 7 2011 

The Fleur De Lis is a recurring theme in many New Orleans Weddings.  Both the  City of New Orleans and the beloved New Orleans Saints NFL football team use the fleur de lis as a symbol. I have noticed an increased use of the fleur de lis at many weddings in New Orleans. It shows up on invitations, on napkins, decorations, and even cakes. I am sure there is a wedding dress too with it  embroidered on and a necklace or pin attached. The fleur de lis is also a recurring them in my art and I have created many designs that can be used in invitations, cards, and more. Here is a web page with them, http://www.cafepress.com/figstreetstudio/1925039 and some links to them below.
