SORT BY Relevancy
Finding the right wedding favors — neither too cheap nor too grand — can be difficult. With wedding favors, the line between cute and kitsch is hin. If you either can’t or don’t decide to spend money on favors, then you should forego giving anything at all — it’s not necessary. With a little creativity, however, you can probably find or make the perfect favor.
Wanna throw a sophisticated reception? Then be sure to tune into The Wedding 101 Show as host, and veteran Chicago-based band leader, David Rothstein delves into the dancing-between-courses craze. “We do it probably 80 to 90 percent of the time at the weddings we play these days,” he says. “As the term implies, this is dancing between dinner courses, throughout the dinner portion of your evening. It originated in upsate New York, it was a very high-society way of throwing a wedding reception. And over the past 30 years, it has made its way across the U.S. The biggest benefit is that it creates energy and momentum throughout the night. And that, for me, is a key to any successful wedding.”
Believe it or not, sex is intended to be your wedding gift...that means not having sex with someone until you are married. It seems like everyone has something to say about the importance (or not), relevance (or not), or definition of marriage (one man, one woman). What does God say about marriage? Listen this week as Dr Pauline & Catherine discuss the Biblical principles surrounding a surprisingly controversial subject.
As always, we welcome your comments and questions through Facebook (Dunamas Center Ministries), and Twitter (@YourDunamasLife).

Since the dawn of time all little girls dream about their wedding day. They think of the big white princess dress, the beautiful cake and all the people they are going to invite. The wedding day is the day! All the dreams and thoughts of happiness are all wrapped up in one day, but not what the day symbolizes...THE MARRIAGE. What happens when the wedding day is over and now you are in a marriage. What should expect? Are you ready once the honeymoon period is over? Can you handle the real duties of being a wife or husband.
The Tru radio team is here to tackle this subject!
How far out should couples order their wedding cake? “That all depends on the difficulty of the design, Mary Winslow of Sinful Wedding Confections tells The Wedding 101 Show host David Rothstein. “The season you want to get married in is also a key factor. So a general range for the height of a wedding season—between Memorial Day and Labor Day—would be five to six months. But if you’re getting married in February, you could easily book your baker in January, because that’s such a slow season.”
What’s a bridesmaid to do to look fabulous without upstaging the bride or breaking her own bank? That conundrum prompted Saukok Chu Tiampo to found 57 Grand Bridalwear. “In 2007, I had a destination wedding in Anguila, where I invited my eight bridesmaids to join us for the weekend,” she tells Wedding Planning Radio host Jeannie Uyanik. “I wanted to defray the cost of the dresses, so I gifted them to my maids. But while shopping for eight dresses, I didn’t see anything I liked. That’s when I realized there was an opportunity to fill a need in the market in terms of style and price point.”
There’s a reason uber-producer Mark Burnett picked Diann Valentine to host his Wedding Day reality series: She’s got a passion for making brides and grooms happy. “We travel around the country and find deserving couples who, for one reason or another face circumstances that prevent them from having the wedding of their dreams,” the celebrity events planner tells Buzzworthy Radio host NaVell Lee. “So we show up and in four days, we supersize it and make it bigger and better than anything they could have ever imagined. And we make the whole process simple for them.”
Naomi “The Cake Aussie” Levine has made name for herself as a master baker whose creations have been the toast of many a Midwest wedding since 2004. So we were curious to learn what confectionary delight she served at her own nuptials. “It had to be over the top. And it wasn’t just one, it was two cakes: One for me and one for John,” the TipsyCake founder tells The Wedding 101 Show host David Rothstein of her hubby. “We love to create cakes that are a true reflection of the groom’s personality and passion. And John has been a vinyl DJ forever, and he loves Pabsy Blue Ribbon beer. So I decided to do a six-pack of Pabst as the base of the cake. And on the top we put vinyl records and a figurine of John spinning records. We also added a figurine of me and our five-year-old son.”
Patricia Davis of Organically Yours Bridal delves into the essence of a successful wedding dress. “When we custom sew a wedding gown, we’re sewing that gown not based on fashion or trends. We’re sewing it based upon satisfying that bride, the designer tells Your True Colors host Carolyn Bendall. “Every bride should be able to select a gown based on what she wants. But because there are so many things every bride wants in a gown, the chances of matching every single detail with a mass-produced dress are very slim.”
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… green? Rhyme or no rhyme, that’s the sentiment more and more brides a marrying by these days. And no one knows it better than Adele Wechsler of Eco-Culture wedding gowns. “One of the ways of going green when picking a wedding dress is to look for a sustainable fabric. You want to find natural fabrics, not manmade. So look for silk,” the designer tells Green & Gorgeous host Renee Ross. “But not just any silk. It should be eco-silk, which is made without killing the silk worms. Another good alternative is gowns made from hemp.”
