“Marriages are made in heaven but celebrated on Earth.”

True to its every alphabet, this popular adage very much summarizes the meaning of marriage as the union of two different souls for remaining life. But in most cases, this union is preceded by string of interesting incidents. Engagement or getting proposed by your soul mate is one such incident. Why interesting? Because it is not every day that you find yourself getting proposed for marriage by someone whom you love from the core of your heart.

Interestingly, clichéd it may sound but the fact remains the same – every young girl dreams of a fairytale romance. They go weak on their knees when it comes to their Prince Charming. And The Most Romantic, Crazy and Funny Engagement Story Contest is the perfect chance for such girls to share the most private, nervous and probably, the most interesting moments which later became a memorable chapter of their lives.

Couples Planning Winter Holiday Themed Weddings Can Save Money Shopping For Discount Wedding Favors

www.AmericanBridal.com, the Internet’s most expansive collection of unique and affordable wedding favors, touts the benefits of planning a winter holiday themed wedding. The online retailer carries a generous selection of holiday-themed wedding favors for couples shopping for their 2009 holiday-themed wedding celebration. Planning at least one year ahead can help to defray the cost of wedding favors, and gives the couple a chance to save money with discount wedding favors.

“The holidays can be an especially challenging time financially, but it’s a wise investment to set aside a kitty to find wedding favors during the post-holiday bargain shopping season,” said Shirley Tan, founder, AmericanBridal.com“End of the year sales not only help retailers clear holiday items and prepare for new inventory, they can be great sources of savings for the wedding budget.”

When buying wedding favors several months in advance of the event, the favors must have a shelf-life so edibles are not always the best choice. While a favorite among wedding guests, chocolate has a tendency to bloom when past its prime, appearing gray and chalky. Choosing the container early and purchasing the edible contents closer to the wedding date is a viable option for those who want to save money while treating guests to edible wedding favors.

In addition to affordable wedding favors, cost-conscious couples can find additional saving on wedding reception tables without looking like they have cheap wedding favors. Festive holiday wedding centerpieces can be assembled without spending a fortune. A candle surrounded by a pine wreath decorated with pine cones and candy canes or silvery snowflake, garland and ornament, can make stunning table decorations.

Another benefit of planning a holiday wedding can be the availability and cost of venues. Sometimes, holiday parties and company gatherings can compete for the desired venue, so there again, planning early is key. Honeymoon destinations during winter can be more affordable, with lower fares than during the peak summer travel season; plan carefully, though, around peak holiday travel dates.

Tan offers additional advice on winter and other seasonal weddings, traditional and non-traditional wedding themes and wedding favors, detailed in her upcoming book, The Bridal Handbook by American Bridal. Geared toward brides and couples newly engaged and planning their weddings, the book will be available for sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in January 2009, as well as on AmericanBridal.com.

Featuring holiday ornaments, soaps and candles to do-it-yourself (DIY) favor boxes, and much more, AmericanBridal.com is the world’s favorite online wedding store for a finishing touch that leaves a lasting impression, holiday wedding favor boxes come in several styles such as snowflake favor box (with choice of candy filling), embossed elegance snowflake favor box, pine cone shaped favor boxes, snowflake take out favor boxes, and Eat, Drink and Be Merry favor boxes.

AmericanBridal.com is a popular destination for wedding favors, bridal shower favors and discount wedding favors, now serving and shipping to U.S. and international customers.

In addition to the holiday and winter collection of wedding favors, AmericanBridal.com offers the most extensive collection of wedding favors and accessories such as party favors, wedding invitations, personalized gifts, wedding ideas, wedding flowers, cake toppers, thank you cards, wedding guest favors, shower favors, wedding jewelry, wedding decorations, wedding centerpieces, bridal shower games, wedding programs, bridal jewelry, bridal shower invitations, place cards, usher gifts, wedding albums, wedding announcements, favor boxes, unity candle, wedding anniversary gift, wedding checklist, wedding bells, wedding napkins, wedding veils and much more.

Majority Of Couples Cutting Back On Wedding Expenses Due To Economic Downturn

www.AmericanBridal.com, the Internet’s most expansive collection of unique and affordable wedding favors, today announced the results of its 2008 Wedding Planning Survey. The survey gathered information about wedding budgets, location, guest count, wedding party size, and how the economy is affecting wedding planning in general.

A majority of respondents (57%) are having their wedding within the next 2 months, andAmericanBridal.com wishes to thank our many customers who, amidst the frenzy of wedding planning, participated in this survey. Especially since most (90%) are doing the planning themselves, with help from family and friends, and not hiring a professional wedding planner.

Since budgets are a concern for many, It looks like there’s a major spread in wedding budgets. About 25% are planning a wedding on a budget of less than $10,000, while 25% have wedding budgets over $25,001. The remaining 50% are somewhere in between, with 38% reporting in the range of $10,001 to $20,000.

“Location, location, location” as the saying goes, and roughly a quarter (25%) are having the reception at a hotel, and 10% have opted to host their nuptials at a country club. About 6% of couples selected a destination wedding, while a majority (55%) reported they are finding another type of venue to rent for the event and reception.

Size matters for this year’s brides, and by that we mean the size of the wedding party. Most couples (48%) will have between 5 to 8 people, while 37% of respondents have 9 or more bridesmaids and attendants. The trend seems to lean toward larger, more inclusive wedding parties, which leads us to the number of invited guests. Nearly 40% report they will have a guest count of more than 200 and 14% say their total guest count is under 100. A good 34% are inviting 100 to 150 guests.

As for cutting costs and wedding budgets, 68% said they’ve lowered their budgets by $1,000 or less. However, the small cuts they are making may not have a big impact on the actual wedding. Items that brides generally won’t skimp on are wedding gowns, photography and wedding rings.

When asked more specifically about what they would and would not change, most are not significantly altering music, location, reception style, or dress. Instead, they are more likely to adjust the cost of invitations, wedding favors, bridal accessories and gifts for the bridal party (combined, 46% of respondents said they would make changes in these 3 areas).

“The uncertain economic climate doesn’t automatically mean couples must forgo special touches to commemorate the beginning of their life together,” says Shirley Tan, American Bridal founder“We are pleased to help the bride and groom stay within budget with affordable wedding favors, and bridal and wedding party gifts.”

Now that potential money-saving opportunities are identified, look for vendors that offer discount wedding favors whose products don’t look like cheap wedding favors. Economical, do-it-yourself favors add the elegance of custom favors without the price tag. Do-it-yourself favors are popular since they can be customized to suit a particular wedding theme. AmericanBridal.com features a wide selection of do-it-yourself favor supplies from which to choose. Add personalized ribbons to create one-of-a-kind favors that look as if not a penny was spared.

One thing is clear: everyone wants to have a memorable wedding, at a special location with beautiful photos and videos. Families and guests must have a great time with plenty of food, drinks, and even entertainment. After all, a wedding is a time of celebration and a party! Most advised planning early, so it is easier to plan ahead, save money, avoid stress and enjoy the anticipation of the special day. The extra time will help to ensure that no detail is overlooked, and that the couple can enjoy their day without reservation.

AmericanBridal.com offers the most extensive collection of wedding favors and accessories such as party favors, wedding invitations, personalized gifts, wedding ideas, wedding flowers, cake toppers, thank you cards, wedding guest favors, bridal shower favors, bridal shower ideas, wedding jewelry, wedding decorations, wedding centerpieces, bridal shower games, wedding programs, bridal jewelry, bridal shower invitations, place cards, usher gifts, wedding albums, wedding announcements, favor boxes, unity candle, wedding anniversary gift, wedding checklist, wedding bells, wedding napkins, wedding veils and much more.
