The lemonade stand

Have you seen the insurance commercial with Ice-T? The one where he's watching over some kids selling lemonade.

It starts with everyone stopping to ask "Is that iced tea?". The kids saying "no it's lemonade".

Until it ends with shot pulling back showing the actor/rapper "Ice-T". And now you get the joke.

We really love this commercial. 

It's clever.

Is there some way to play a similar slight of hand joke in your wedding or (more likely) - reception? It's a celebration so make sure to have fun.

The Crews-man saves you moo laah on your wedding

I reading a funny-sad story about a guy who in a single week - lost his id, his wallet and his job.

But to rebound, he came up with a genius way to help him save money.

He opens up his wallet and there is a stern picture of Terry Crews looking at him. Asking "are you sure you need this?"

So if you are trying to save for the wedding. Or deciding on what to spend the budget on ask "what would Terry think?"

And maybe put his glaring face on your cover of your wedding planning binder.


Cheers,

Cosplayying honeymoon

Things that make you go hmm.

I was just reading on my gossip blog feed that there is an entire industry around guys paying to watch girls dressed up as comic book characters. For um, some adult video viewing pleasure.

Isn't the Internet great?

Don't worry - I'm not that much of a prude. 

So is this something your groom is into? Would you want to play that type of dress up? 

I know these are things you never think about when caught up in the early romance of your relationship.

But you will need to always find ways to keep things exciting and interesting and fun. And it's harmless.

Meanwhile you might want to think of more traditional wedding fun by looking at color patterns here

Do you have a backup officiant

Hey there.

I batch write these emails. I'm writing this while watching NFL pre-game show.

And in NFL one of the most important positions is the backup quarterback. In case the starter gets hurt. Because that can decide if your team is done or not if the main guy gets hurt.

But have you thought about what would happen for your wedding if your officiant failed to show-up? Or got sick? 

This happened at a friend's wedding. The officiant forgot. 

While this is unlikely - you should make sure to have a backup plan. 

And to write this plan down in your planner.


Cheers,

That time you watched Law and Order and forgot to go the wedding

One of our favorite things to do on weekend is watch Law and Order. I love the original series.

We also watch SVU but I can't binge it anymore. Makes me too depressed. But the original with Briscoe, I can watch all day.

An episode, I'm surprised they never did was a murder case over paying for a wedding.

I was reading over on a wedding forum was that the fiance family wanted a $20k wedding but the bride's family didn't have that budget. At most, maybe a few thousand.

And of course there is much arguing.

What to do? 

Well - if the Fi really wants that grand reception, then let them pay. Though I'd rather take the cash to start your life. You can throw a really good party for a couple stacks. 

And whether you are going cheap or Kardashian, you should check out my favorite wedding planning guide.

Only a celebrity can name something that sounds like a bad emoji

I just read that Gwyneth Paltrow GOOP is launching a clothing line.

I don't know anything about it. Except it always makes me laugh to see the name of the company.

I mean it sounds like that brown emoji. Or a Christmas character from South Park.

Or you know "worm casts".

What does this have to do with wedding? 

I have no idea.

Something silly to think about. 

Meanwhile if you want to be more serious about your wedding planning, please check out this.

The time a retired fake wrestler fought a real fight

Last night CM Punk who used to wrestle in WWE, fought his first MMA fight.

And he lost.

It was a strange turn of events - a man who used to fight in "fake" wrestling, attempted to compete in a real fighting sport.

Which MMA wanted him because he brought out his many fans. At the end of the day, sports are entertainment and a business and thus those fans mattered as much, if not more than his actual experience.

But to his credit - he did get in the ring. I mean, they don't mess around in UFC.

And when it comes to your wedding make sure that you stick to what you want. And fits your personality.

Don't go through with a fancy princess wedding if you are a carefree beach girl.

And don't go outside garden if you are kick-em up rustic barn girl.

Either way make sure you have a planning guide to help you along. 


Cheers,
Mark
