Marlin and Valda made the big decision to marry last January. Both of them had put serious past romances behind them and committed to move on together. The decision to commit created widespread happiness.
Both of these young people believe that starting off their lives together in marriage was such a serious Endeavor, that they sought out any additional professional help they could find. They attended marriage classes at several of the local churches.
And so they embarked on the uncomplicated job of wedding planning. It never occurred to either Marlin or Valda to search for a professional wedding planner. They considered the process of planning their wedding as easy as throwing just a little bigger party. As this excited couple began the steps to planning their wedding, Marlin and Valda were eager to receive the advice of their friendswho had experience in wedding planning. Some of the suggestions they received were good and they loved them, others did not fit their own expectations. They quickly discovered that there was a science to wedding planning if you were going to maintain any kind of sanity or budget.
Who knew how many articles there were to help a couple plan their wedding? So much help is available. There are online sites like The Knot. Bridal magazines are pretty much full of assistance as well. Marlin and Valda waded through it and in good time came up with wedding plans they felt great about. What decisions remained:
They were so relaxed about their successful wedding planning, they felt so confident they had done a great job and that the wedding was going to go off smooth as silk that with one month before the blessed event, Marlin and Valda treated themselves to a spa weekend at a resort hotel 100 miles from their home. It was there, in at warm and bubbling hot tub that they realized they forgot about wedding favors. Not to let the relaxation of the hot tub get the best of them, they simply talked about it over the bubbles. They remembered a handsome grey leather zippered pouch that both men and women could use equally. The decided to order 100 of those pouches embossed with their wedding date on them. They also remembered many wedding receptions of their friends that featured colorful and cheap wedding sunglasses. Right from the hot tub, they pulled out the cell phone, did a search for cheap wedding sunglasses and found that at Shades of Fun, our minimum purchase is simply 100 pair. That is a very low minimum order. Upon their return from their spa weekend, we were ecstatic to receive their order. We wish them all of the best for successful marriage and prosperous family life.
