How did you get started in this business? My family has been in the retail business in the Springfield area my entire life. I found it intriguing watching them work and build a name for themselves. I knew that’s what I wanted for myself; to be my own boss and to run a business they way I saw fit. I had several wedding dresses in a closet that my fiance, Scott Cotton, who is a photographer had used for a bridal shoot. The dresses were taking up much needed closet space and that’s when it all clicked for me. I had my “aha!” moment! I wanted to provide an opportunity for people to recuperate their investments for money toward a new house, honeymoon, appliances; whatever they wanted!

Fire-fighters had to take care of the women after their toilet roll wedding dresses caused a small fire

A GROUP of women celebrating their friend’s hen do had to call 999 after one of them set a toilet-paper wedding dress on fire.

The group were partying in a London pub on Sunday when a small fire broke out.

The hens were playing a game which involved making ‘wedding dresses’ out of toilet roll.

One of the hens, who was wrapped in toilet roll, noticed that some paper on a table had been ignited by a tea light candle.

She leant over to put the fire out and the paper she was wrapped in caught fire.

The horrified woman threw herself to the ground and managed to put the flames out, but sustained burns to her chest and hand in the process.

A pub staff member rushed upstairs with a fire extinguisher and put out some remaining spots of fire on a chair and carpet.

Fire-fighters soon arrived on the scene and immediately began giving first aid to the injured woman, whilst they waited for an ambulance to arrive.

Two other hens also suffered from smoke inhalation and all three were subsequently taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance.

How to Find a Good Deal on an Engagement Ring
News from Fox Business:

It seems Prince William may have been onto something when he proposed to Kate Middleton: Instead of giving her a traditional diamond ring, the prince proposed with an 18-carat sapphire.

While it’s safe to say the prince wasn’t trying to save money when giving the now Duchess of Cambridge his mother’s wedding ring, opting for a non-diamond stone is an easy way to significantly reduce the cost of an engagement ring.

The royal engagement popularized non-diamond stones, according to Amy Eisinger, associate editor of, which is good news for people on a budget looking to pop the question.  

She adds that the average cost of an engagement ring is $ 5,200, and 40% of all couples get engaged between November and February—and Valentine’s Day is always a popular time to get down on one knee.

“In a modern day and age, you don’t need to necessarily pick a diamond,” Eisinger says. “Look at his or her jewelry and think if maybe they’d prefer something else. Champagne or cognac diamonds, blue sapphire, pink sapphires, emeralds and rubies are all less expensive.”

Here are some tips from Eisinger and Anja Winikka, site editor at TheKnot…………… continues on Fox Business

News from

Stony Plain – After complaints began last spring, an RCMP investigation led to charges being laid against a Stony Plain wedding planner for receiving deposits for rental equipment that was never supplied.

The formal police investigation began on May 27, 2011 but complaints had been made before then. As reported by CTV News, at least 78 clients of Amour Decor, a wedding planning enterprise in Stony Plain, Alberta, are alleged to have been the victims of fraud.

Cst. Barb Roy, with the RCMP’s Stony Plain Detachment, is quoted as saying,

Those charges we can link $ 45,000 towards our complainants being defrauded.

Charged is Amy Conibear, the owner of Amour Decor.

Alanna Lamarche told the newspaper Metro that she paid Conibear a $ 500 deposit last February for the rental of wedding linens. In April she tried to meet the wedding planner but kept getting the runaround. Said Lamarche,
