Here is another edition of our popular spotlight series, "Real Detroit Weddings," which will be an occasional, ongoing new sub-topic of the Detroit Wedding Examiner, our area's leading wedding column/blog. The purpose is to spotlight real couples who were married in the Metro-Detroit area, to get a glimpse at their real wedding choices and to inspire newly engaged brides (and grooms!) with ideas and advice for their own weddings. All of the following information was provided by our featured couple.
You take care of him, bathe him, limit how much he eats, teach him right from wrong, and establish boundaries for him. No were not talking about your groom, we're talking about your dog!

Weddings are expensive. That shouldn't be news to anybody planning one, but the expense of a wedding is usually overwhelming, especially once a bride and groom begin getting estimates on their needed services.
But what most brides don't realize, is that it is always much more costly in the long-run if you try to hire the "cheapest" without doing your homework beforehand. There is an inherent "shopping gene" that kicks in with brides, but when you are hiring a wedding vendor, it is not like finding a dress in a bargain bin, or finding a sale on bread at Wal-Mart.
The award-winning ensemble comedy focused on a paper company in Scranton, PA - Dunder Mifflin - with the running storyline being that this paper company was chosen to be the subject of an upcoming (faux) documentary.

"Is it proper to ask for a food-tasting prior to booking my Reception Hall?"
Well, as modern technology makes life more and more convenient, it was only a matter of time that they introduced the Bridal Diaper....
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed....something stinks. In recent months, there has been increased internet chatter revolving around a "new" bridal fashion trend: The Bridal Diaper, an adult-diaper that creates an easier alternative to taking a pee-break during your wedding day.
Periodically, Real Detroit Bride's Guide likes to profile local businesses for you to find out more about them, and to give you a professional's opinion on the state of the wedding industry in the Detroit/Metro area. This time I talk with owner (and active DJ) John DeVergilio of JD Entertainment DJ & Video.
Today is Mother's Day, a day to honor a very special person (or people, if you
include grandma and stepmom!) in your life. Your mother will most surely be
involved in your wedding, in some way, shape, or form, even if it is a remembrance and celebration of her legacy (if your mom has passed, here are some ideas to remember her and others that have passed on your wedding day.)
The white wedding dress is perhaps the most symbolic part of today's wedding ceremony. Through different religions and denominations, each wedding is unique in its customs. And although the styles may differ, and color accents may be added, in most every modern wedding you will see the bride wearing a white wedding dress.
Thanksgiving has traditionally been a very popular time for weddings, as the holiday signifies many of the main ideals of a wedding: family, food, and giving thanks. If you are planning for a wedding for next year, here are some tips for having a creative and unique Thanksgiving-themed wedding.
