    Industry Alert: The Average Price of Weddings Is Being Artificially Inflated

    in Relationships

    I wanted to throw the magazine across the floor! You're kidding me!


    The Knot DC, Maryland & Virginia Magazine featured "18 Weddings We Love" on their front cover. But the Pricetag of 18 "real weddings"? Horror!!


    So I was glad to see that, as usual, the Knot is attempting to connect with brides by showing them a more personalized approach to wedding planning, but flip through the pages, and you'll see what I see - the industry is really pushing the average price of weddings sky high.


    Coming from The Knot? Pardon the pun, but it's just "knot" realistic. The overall US budget, which would apply to a lot of weddings in MD, VA, and DC, was $28,000.


    Each of these "real weddings" had a code for the budget cost of the overall reception and dress. So out of five, $$$$$, the first "real wedding" couple had two, $$. So I'm thinkin' ... well, I hope it's a $10,000-$15,000 budget, but how did they manage the massive tent rental on that budget? Those can cost $10K themselves?


    Catch my episode on Monday night at 11pm, and you'll find out just what $$ means to The Knot Spring 2015 DC, MD, VA edition.

    CHILD BRIDES


    Imagine being 11 or 12 years old, getting ready for your wedding to a man as old as or older than your father, makes the arrangements to take you back to his home after the ceremony.  Now imagine being 5 years old, waking from a nap to find out you were married.  One 8 year old Yemeni girl was in the news last fall after she died from a ruptured uterus after her wedding night to a man in his 30s.  According to the International Center for Research on Women, One in every nine girls in this world will be married before the age of 15.  And, yes, it even happens in America.

    Why 2015 Wedding Mags Don't Show Flower Prices

    in Relationships

    I see the trends as they're unraveling in the wedding industry, and I'm going to point them out.


    Today, it's all about those flowers and the mysteriously disappearing prices from the spreads of wedding magazines. You have to understand, in 2012, I observed and pointed out the wedding industry was artificially driving up the price of bridal bouquets by featuring "budget" bouquets with an exorbitant price tag of $200... as if $200 was a great deal for one bridal bouquet. Now that the industry has achieved this, florists everywhere are charging as much, and the industry has taken the pricing of flowers hush-hush so that florists across the country may vary their pricing according to economic area, individual wedding couple factors, and minimums - there are a growing number of brick-and-mortar florists who have minimums, especially in the DC area, which I call home, and which is one of the highest wedding budget areas in America.

    Thank you for joining Yours truly; Lisa Marie for the première broadcast of 2015


    The Ancient Of Days: Proclaim's;The Year of The Holy God's


    I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed Daniel 7:1-14


    The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken John 10:32-35 Love Ya!
