American Couples Get ‘More Selective’

May 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

U.S. couples living together and getting choosier about their prospective spouses is leading more people to delay marriage.

Almost 47 percent of women from 25 to 29 had never been married in 2009, almost double the 26 percent reported in 1986, according to a Census Bureau report released today.

Based on a survey taken since 1986, the increase in the age of couples at their first marriage is “one of the most noticeable changes in marital patterns,” according to the report.

“As marriage rates have decreased and cohabitation has become more common, marriage has become more selective of adults who are better off socioeconomically and have more education,” the report said.

Say YES! to the resort

May 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

First things first – the truth – I am fairly obsessed with “Say Yes To The Dress” and Kleinfeld fashion director Randy Fenoli.  Watching his enthusiasm and approach to each bride is inspirational and I can only aspire to address each bride with such insight and care when choosing their destination wedding resort.

Randy has so many memorable quotes and on a recent episode here is one of my favorites –

“Finding a dress is like finding a guy, when the right one comes along, you will know it.
You don’t have to date every guy.”

Same is true with resorts –  you don’t have to look at all of them.  And this is where a good destination wedding coordinator comes in – just like a dress consultant, he/she will only show you resorts that fit your budget and your wedding vision.  And just like finding the perfect wedding dress, you will also know when to Say Yes to the Resort!

“It’s not about you – it’s about the bride”

No truer words have been spoken!  It’s wonderful to have everyone in your wedding party on board with all your decisions but is it necessary?  This is something that only you can decide and in my experience, it’s nearly impossible to make everyone happy.  Build your wedding around the people that support your destination wedding vision and try not to worry about the rest.
