Weddings with Grace is a wedding planing company located in South Florida. My name is Jessica and I am the Image Director for the company. This past summer, I spent time living and working in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. I worked at the Hospital Regional de Occidente in a clinic for people with HIV/AIDS as well as in the general hospital in the psychology department. I got to meet many amazing people and it was an incredible experience. I also saw great need. Guatemala is unfortunately a very poor country where people live in true poverty. This affects people’s healthcare, and many... Continue reading

Who wrote the first blog? Frankly, I don't really plan on looking up the history of the blog, but I can't help wonder who first decided to share his/her thoughts and feelings with anyone who would listen, and why this person chose to do so. Even more interesting is the fact that blogging has spread like wildfire. I myself read blogs at times and find myself spending hours staring at the computer screen, completely enveloped by the thoughts of people don't know and have never heard of in my life. One of my guilty pleasures when I have the time... Continue reading

Being part of the Perfect Wedding Guide family gives us the opportunity of interact with our brides at Bridal Shows. On Sunday, January the 10th, the Perfect Wedding Guide gave us the opportunity to share time with all of you and to meet new colleagues. Our booth was located between the Mizner Country Club and Entertainment Connection’s DJs; being close to them was so much fun; the DJs were dancing and joking while they were working and their great, positive vibe was clearly apparent to the brides whom continuously gravitated towards them. All of them gave us tips teaching us... Continue reading

Christmas time is about giving and sharing with others the blessings you’ve received. You can feel the Christmas spirit everywhere you are, people wanting to give back. Good givers are great takers. You’ve got to give to get. When you become a giver, you attract good things to you; everything else will follow. Successful people come from a place of abundance, where they have everything they need (not what they want) and can work harder and smarter because their mind is clear and focused. Count your blessings, start from a place of strength, get up in the morning and decide... Continue reading

Bridesmaids. With few specified duties, the bridesmaids are typically sisters or close relatives of either the bride or groom, or close friends of the bride. It is acceptable at a modern wedding for the bridesmaids to be either single or married. Bridesmaids take part in the processional, and recessional, and may stand in the receiving line. At the reception, they mingle with the guests and are seated at the bridal table. Bridesmaids may organize showers (either together or separately) and will either give a luncheon for the bride or attend one given by her. Weddings with Grace. Continue reading

Maid or Matron of Honor. The Maid of Honor or the Matron of Honor is a close relative or friend of the bride who supports the bride emotionally during the wedding preparations, helps with wedding tasks, and serves as an official witness to the marriage. If the bride has a sister near her age, she will usually serve as the Maid of Honor. A close cousin, a best friend, the groom’s sister (if the bride knows her well), or a close male relative or friend could also be asked to fill this role. If the male is serving as the...

"The key to a great wedding is knowing where to spend and where to save." Mindy Weiss, in her Wedding Book, gives us ten ways to start cutting on our budget to keep the bills down: 1) Trim the guest list; this can cut down your biggest expense (caterer). 2) Choose a gorgeous setting so you can save on decorations. 3) Go with a reception site that provides the site, tables, chairs, flatware, and staff. Renting everything aside plus a tent, will add up to a susbtantial expense. 4) Think about getting married during daylight. Breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon... Continue reading

This week, one of our brides came to visit her family and called us. We were very fortunate to spend some time with her, her husband, and her parents. We watched the movie "The Blind Side" with them - an amazing and inspirational movie with Sandra Bullock - and ended thinking about how love evolves. It's always great to see how a couple deals with all of the changes the preparation of a wedding brings, how ecstatic they are on their wedding day, and how they glow and act when they are sharing their life as husband and wife. It... Continue reading

On October 1st of this year, Weddings with Grace started running as a business, and like we mentioned before with no idea about marketing or advertising of any kind. With the kindness of people who gave us ideas, the lessons began. Creating a website was our first challenge, but with dedication we built our website on a weekend. Since we began the company, we did some research about wedding magazines in our area - the wedding industry is a large and important market nowadays - and decided to sign contracts with the following: Perfect Wedding Guide and Get Married. Perfect... Continue reading
