Wedding Podcast Network is so helpful to engaged couples because it gives them the opportunity to listen to first-hand advice from newlyweds and wedding professionals.

It is something most brides will not think about, but I am sure it has crossed the groom’s mind once or twice. If you have a fall wedding, do you need to work around football season? It is sad, but true. I had a spring wedding for several reasons and one of those reasons was to avoid this whole conversation! If your guy is a football fanatic, and you are sympathetic, you have a couple options:
a. Avoid football season altogether and have a spring/summer wedding,
b. Include his favorite team in the wedding (wear a garter with the team logo or have a groom’s cake made in the team colors),
c. If you really want to be accommodating, book a reception site with TVs (maybe not the best idea, but some country clubs have a bar area with the games on)
Whatever you decide, at least listen to his opinion. In the end though, this is your wedding day and you still have full veto power! Good luck!
In the madness that is wedding planning, many important elements may be overlooked. Lighting can make such a difference in the overall appearance and mood of your room, that I would definitely suggest taking the time to experiment. Candles have always been a great, and less expensive, way to add ambience to a special event. Use candles along the aisle for your ceremony, as centerpieces for the reception, or as an accent to showcase your cake or guest book table.
Check with your venue to be sure they actually allow real candles. If not, there are many creative alternatives.
