Know Your Budget When Planning…

It is no longer expected that wedding costs will be assigned according to tradition. Every bride and groom should discuss their plan and budget for the wedding with their families to determine whether to follow a traditional division of financial responsibility for the wedding costs. If circumstances don’t allow the families to follow tradition, the proper rationale in deciding who pays for what portion is basic: whoever is most willing and most able to pay for a wedding.

Know your overall budget BEFORE you start planning your wedding. This is one of the first issues you and your fiancé should discuss. Set your priorities based on what is most important to both of you and spend accordingly. For example, if the meal is the most important element of your wedding, you’ll want to allocate a greater portion of your budget to it.

A Most Important Job…

Amongst all the stress of planning your wedding day, you have two very important members of your bridal party just itching to sprint down the aisle. Keep in mind the flowergirl and ringbearers have a very important job in your wedding day: the keeper of the “rings” and to make way for the bride by use of flower petals.

This precious flower girl dress has a floor length skirt of lace and pleated organza ruffles. Many bridal gowns have the same features and now we’ve got the flower girl dress to match! As always, the ribbon sash can be ordered in a variety of colors. Swing by to take a closer look at it! Premier Bride's Perfcet Dress

Your flower girl will no doubt be adorable, so consider her dressing the part. Try to find a mini dress to accompany yours, or have one made. It’s always adorable to see the bride and flowergirl in their matching attire. You might consider giving her an unconventional bag instead of the basket that is a more traditonal option.

The ringbearer always looks daper in his mini tuxedo, just make sure he matches the groom to a tee. If the groom has suspenders, have the ringbearer get them too. A little fedora hat also goes a long way. You can certainly still use a pillow with fake rings, but consider something a little more updated like the ringbearer carrying a sign saying “Here comes the bride!” This is really sweet and can be used for great pictures.

 We have so much fun when the adorable Flower Girl dresses start to arrive. They’re just so cute! This is a new arrival from Jordan, shown in White and Light Pink. It has a satin bodice with a keyhole back and satin waistband. The tulle tutu skirt also has contrasting accents along the edge. This dress is available in any combination of 2 of the 75 colors Jordan offers. Lots of options with this one! http://www.fresnobridalsalon.com/

Your guests want to see the adorable ringbearer and flowergirls antics, so be ready for the comedy hour. Make sure that you put their parents in strategic places in the seating, so that if they do get a little rowdy, they can get them quickly.

Event Pavilion Reception

Testimonial from a very happy bride…

 

Thank you!!!!
We wanted to send a big thank you to the staff at Ridge Creek Golf Course for a job well done. After contemplating where to hold our wedding and wedding reception, we decided to hold our special day at Ridge Creek Golf Course and could not have been happier with our decision to do so. From our first phone call to inquire about the reservation to the completion of our wedding, we could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. Rosa, the sales and marketing director was very professional and so helpful that she was more than willing to go above and beyond to make our day exceptional. Thank you Rosa! From the waitstaff to the bartenders, everthing was perfect. All of our special requests were taken care of and accommodated with a smile.

We thank all of you for a very memorable day with our family and friends, it could not have been so special without all of your help.

We give you an A+!

Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. Baca
