Badger Farms owners offer wedding planning advice
News from hngnews.com:
After saying, “yes” to the proposal, it’s time to start thinking about the big day.
Weddings are joyful occasions, but can also be hectic. Planning can be overwhelming, especially when the bride and groom are handling it without the help of an event coordinator. There are some important aspects to think about when planning a wedding, and details to remember. There is also a lot to handle once the day arrives, and of course, the couple and their families want to have fun with little stress.
The Cottage Grove area offers a variety of venues to hold a wedding or reception. Paradise Park, Doubleday’s, The Oaks Golf Course, and The Rail House are to name a few.

How much do I have to spend on wedding gifts?
News from WRTV Indianapolis:
It doesn’t matter if you’re going — if you receive a wedding invitation, you should send a gift of some sort to the couple. That doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money — and even if you’re on a tight budget, you may be able to come up with a little something to congratulate the couple.
Pick Something That Makes Sense
The first thing to consider when deciding what to spend on wedding gifts is how the purchase fits into your budget. It’s absurd to spend beyond your means or jeopardize your financial plans or your credit just because you think someone expects a more expensive gift than you can afford. (Even charging $ 200 more a month for wedding gifts could impact your credit score, depending on your credit utilization ratio. You can see if you’re charging too much on your credit cards by checking your utilization and your credit scores for free on Credit.com. )
There is no dollar amount guideline for gift giving, because each situation and budget is different, says etiquette expert Jodi R.R. Smith. The relationship you h…………… continues on WRTV Indianapolis

Engaged couple share their wedding planning experiences
News from Naperville Sun:
Engaged couple Lucy Krol, a Hoffman Estates native, and Chad Vargo, from Pennsylvania, are in the midst of planning their May 2015 wedding. But rather than go the traditional route of hiring a wedding planner, the Naperville couple, who met while working at Intel, is relying purely on technology.

5 Male Celebs Who Wear Engagement Rings -
News from Should Real Men Do It Too … – The Stir:
As the wise Beyonce once warned us: If he liked it, then he shoulda put a ring on it.
But don’t we like our men back? Is it really fair that he goes out of his way to scrimp and save for that diamond solitaire engagement ring and we return the favor with … a thank you? And never mind the cost of a ring — that isn’t even the point. It’s a romantic gesture. One that reminds us of commitment and the promise of a future together. It always seemed odd to me that men weren’t expected to (proudly) show the world they were “taken” too. What’s that about, anyway?
Well, the days of engagement rings made for women only may be behind us. Manly men like Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen are wearing engagement rings — why wouldn’t the “mangagement” ring catch on? We spoke with wedding expert Amanda Gizzi to get all the details on this trend.
Gizzi, a spokeswoman for Jewelers of America, says the trend of men rocking engagement rings was a topic of conversation long before Depp pranced around in his. For the record, he’s actually wearing fiancee Amber Heard’s actual ring, not a “male” engagement ring. But it’s the thought that counts, right?!

If you were an Arkansan looking to enjoy some Independence Day pyrotechnics yesterday then you may have been wasting your time heading to Little Rock, Fayetteville or Hot Springs because it looks like the best 4th of July fireworks display was in Duggarville as newlyweds Derick Duggar and Jill Duggar (I suppose I need to officially start writing Jill Dillard) proved their days of sidehugs are over as they posed lip locking in appropriately patriotic red, white and blue attire.
You know you’re in love when you abandon a piece of juicy watermelon on a summer day in the South just for a kiss!
Jill posted the above photo on instagram and enthusiastically captioned it, “Happy Independence Day! So grateful for our Godly founding fathers!” She added the hashtags: #4thofjuly #jilldillard #derickdillard #independenceday #19kidsandcounting
And just in case the smooching fireworks weren’t enough, Jill also had a dazzling sparkler to show off in the form of her wedding and engagements rings! (Oh, and Derick’s too for those Duggar fans into dude bling.)
Wedding planning tips for 2 grooms
News from Reading Eagle:
Sunday July 6, 2014 12:01 AM
By Leanne Italie � Associated Press
NEW YORK – Who pays for a wedding when two grooms are involved? Who walks whom down the aisle? While same-sex weddings are more prevalent than ever, two grooms navigating the wedding planning process might need some extra help.
Jason Mitchell, a professional wedding planner in the New York area, said the industry is most definitely focused on females. That’s why he wrote “Getting Groomed: The Ultimate Wedding Planner for Gay Grooms,” offering tips for two guys trying to figure it all out.
“I think sometimes they’re overwhelmed about what they have to include,” said Mitchell, who married his boyfriend and now spends about half his time on the job organizing same-sex weddings.
There’s no one size fits all, he said, but he offers these ways to navigate trouble spots:
Paying for the wedding
Mitchell suggested talking openly to both sets of parents about kicking in some bucks.
Joel Bauer, a Brooklyn actor who wed his lawyer-boyfriend last October, said they took a no-pressure approach, asking their parents to decide on sums the elders felt comfortable with. The grooms made up the difference.
“It worked out great,” he said. “It was split three ways.”

Grooms take more active role in wedding planning
News from The Providence Journal:
Groom-to-be Conor Healy has what he calls an “expansive” definition of something blue.
“It all started because I said I wanted blue ties. But it was a lot harder than I thought to get a certain shade of light blue,” says the San Ramon, Calif., banker, who has been eagerly engaged in every organizational aspect of his July wedding.
His fiancée, Heather Vilhauer, who fortunately likes the hue, too, because will it match her groom’s eyes, was amazed at his highly specific azure ambitions, taking him through multiple floors of Britex Fabrics in San Francisco to find the perfect shade. It was a decision that would naturally affect the color of the dresses for the seven bridesmaids, two junior bridesmaids and three flower girls, not to mention the table linens and decorations for their event.
“It kind of dominoed,” he says, “so I get teased for having chosen the colors and the flowers.”
Indeed, such vital decisions usually are considered the bride’s domain. Yet as relationships evolve and more couples pay for their own celebrations, the notion of the “Bride’s Day” may be fading away into the figurative photo album of the past. Now, instead of merely getting fitted for the tux and just plain showing up on time, more grooms are helping choose the cake, the location, the music and more.
Many brides think it’s a turn for the better, not worse.<…………… continues on The Providence Journal
