  • Black Bag's Annual Wedding Pro Roundtable

    in Women

    We're back! We hope you had a great summer and congratulations to all of the newly engaged with late 2015 weddings and 2016 weddings.  We are kicking off the fall season with our annual roundtable of professionals in the wedding and special event industry. We welcome our first time roundtable guests Marisa Tristan and Kay Matthews along with our veteran panelists and our very special guest, Deb McCoy of American Academy of Wedding Professionals.

    We wanted to get our roundtable of pros to give their take on what's hot for the upcoming fall and holiday season for weddings and what they expect to happen in 2016.  If you're thinking of having a fall 2015 wedding, this is the show for you! Get ideas, ask questions and most importantly take note of what pitfalls you need to avoid when planning a holiday wedding or wedding related event.  How to save on your budget if you are determined to have a holiday wedding - it can be done, but our pros will tell you it has to be done right. This is your opportunity to ask the questions that you have been wondering about - how many bridesmaids really? Adult only wedding receptions? Weddings at home? DIY or Pro Planner? Cash or hosted bar? Cake or cupcakes? Plated or buffet which is cheaper, better? Photography and videography, can't I just get the photographer to do the video? Destination weddings, honeymoons and how to save money on them.  The list is endless on planning a wedding and our pro pals will be here to talk about it all. 

    Get a second cup of coffee, prop your feet up, get your tablet out and join us for a fun hour on planning the biggest day of your life!  Always searching for the unique, excellence, elegance and style - Black Bag Productions and Wedding Wednesdays, the perfect pair!

    Sex and the Beach Anyone? Afford Your Sexy Get-Away with this new ONLINE Tool.

    in Finance

    Vacations have the ability to create the mood for romance and sex.  That is why couples plan romantic get-aways, and newly weds go on honeymoons.  The right environment, somewhere other than home hightens the likelyhood of more and better sex.

    Older relationships in need of a fresh spark, find a vacation just the thing to hit the nail on the head, or nail it - in bed.

    The after effects of getting the bill for an off-budget, debt-financed excursion, can take a bit away from the memory, when you feel miserable about paying for it later.

    Many couples wait to get married simply because they are waiting till they can afford the honeymoon.  WAIT NO MORE!

    This awesome website tool at www.DebtFreeVacations.com allows you to see several creative vacation options within YOUR budget!

    Punch your spending total in, and see results you may not otherwise have considered.  Learn more about this tool and why it is the answer to your lifestyle solution.

    Vacations, how often, how many stars, destination, experiences; (or the lack of), are a major lifestyle statement.

    On this side of the recession, in my work with helping folks achieve debt-free wealth, I come across many who switched from wanton wastefulness, to deep depravity - excluding vacations, in an attempt to restore financial stability.  While the reason is noble, the process is not fun, and makes work more miserable.  We should work to live, not live to work.

    This online tool may just be the answer to restoring some fun, love, and quality family time, regardless of your budget.

    Listen LIVE, or listen later - but do not miss this show.
