Limousines come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. In Bradenton and Sarasota, newlyweds have a choice of stretch limos, pickup truck limos, sports car like limos, antique and classic vehicles, and horse drawn carriages!

A quick note thanking the hundreds of brides that visited the Nuovo Bride Wedding Show at the Bradenton Convention Center in Palmetto on Sunday. It was great to meet dozens of you and I hope I can be of service to you in the near future.

If you ever have questions for me, please call 941.227.5900

Your wedding day has taken months and months of planning. It is the week of the wedding and suddenly, your father has fallen ill. He is too ill to attend the wedding. What are you to do? Hold the wedding without you father?

If you had to postpone or cancel, do you have the financial resources to cover the cancellation costs or the rescheduling of such a huge event? With the average wedding costing approximately $20,000, my guess is that most people do not. That’s why wedding insurance through a reputable company such as WedSafe is the answer.

While you are not covered because someone got cold feet, many other instances of postponement or cancellation are covered. There are also areas of coverage that you may have never thought of.

1. Out-of-Business Wedding Professionals

You put down a substantial deposit with a band, venue, consultant or other wedding professional and they suddenly go out-of-business. Normally, you would lose all of that money. Wedding Insurance would cover these losses.

2. Photo/Video Problems

Your photographer and videographer worked hard at your wedding to capture memories that will last a lifetime. Two weeks later, the photographer calls and informs you that the film did not print properly or the videographer calls to inform you he/she lost your videotape.

Obviously, Insurance can never recover the photos and video that was recorded, but they can reimburse you for loss of those services.

WedSafe Wedding Insurance will go as far as having your wedding party get together again to take replacement photographs. Please read their policy for more details.

3. Wedding Attire Issues

Gowns and Tuxedos that are damaged, lost, or stolen is generally covered by this type of insurance. Please read policy details.

4. Wedding Gifts

Gifts received at a wedding are covered too. Say a table collapses and breaks all of the breakables inside the gift boxes, you are covered.

5. Professional Counseling

Planning a wedding is an emotionally draining experience. Having to cancel a wedding is simply overwhelming. That’s why wedding insurance from WedSafe will cover the cost of Professional Counseling.

6. Liability Insurance

This is a separate insurance offered by WedSafe. While most good wedding vendors will have their own form of liability insurance (Jim Casey has a $1,000,000 liability policy) it is not a bad idea to have that extra security blanket.

You have planned the fairy tale wedding of your dreams! It is a gorgeous day, you are preparing to walk down the aisle to marry your soul mate. Everything is perfect.

Suddenly, you hear an ear-shattering scream. Then, lots more screams from younger children.

Chances are, your wedding will include children, even if you haven’t really planned on it. Many brides and grooms will use their invitation to request that children are not to be brought to the wedding. Sometimes this is politically and practically impossible. It’s a fact that there are many on your guest list who will need to bring their children (especially infants) for a variety of reasons.

If planner properly however, children can be a wonderful and fun part of your wedding day. The key is to provide a high level of entertainment with low level of supervision.

Create A Special Table Just For Kids

Having a table just for the younger guests makes them feel more involved in your big day and usually will make them less obtrusive.

Some ideas for the table include covering the table with white paper which will allow the children write on it, play tic-tac-toe, or just draw pictures.

Make sure to include refreshments suitable for the younger kids such as Fruit snack packs, drink boxes, etc Avoid chocolate and nuts as some kids are allergic to nuts and chocolate will only give get the children hyper and defeat the purpose of the table.

Gift Bags

This is the same concept as having gift bags for kids at a birthday party. Include a stick-on nametag, small party favors and other things that would be appropriate for your wedding. Gift bags come in many different styles and colors. You should be able to choose one that will coordinate with your wedding decor.


Designate a person to supervise children’s activities at the kid’s table, or if practical, in a separate room.

Have the babysitter oversee activities that are somehow related to the events of the day. Have the kids draw a picture of the bride and groom or write a letter to the bride and groom congratulating them on their big day.

Ask each child how they know the bride and/or groom. Are any of the children related? Do they know where the newlyweds are going on their honeymoon.

While we know it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure the proper behavior of their children, you can help create a special memory for them by taking a small amount of time plan for their Entertainment too.

This is possibly one of the more difficult things you do when planning a wedding. The majority of couples plan their weddings on a Saturday between September and April here in Sarasota and Bradenton.

Did you know by adjusting the date to a Friday or a Sunday you can save as much as 20% or more off the total cost of your wedding?

1. More Quality Wedding Professionals Available

Most quality wedding professionals book their services as much as 18 months in advance. If you are flexible enough to move the wedding day to a Friday or a Sunday, you are at least 75% likely to find your choice open for the date.

2. Save Money

The fact that vendors have much more availability on Fridays or Sundays gives you the opportunity to save money.

In order to increase this “off-day” business, many professionals will give you discounts of at least 5% to as much as 25% or more. Call your professionals and get all of the details.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas, and often meet to gossip or share ideas. On the other hand, we bossed ourselves around, set impossible goals, and demanded longer hours than office jobs usually entail. It was the ultimate “flextime,” in that it depended on how flexible we felt each day, given deadlines, distractions, and workaholic crescendos.
Aristotle made several efforts to explain how moral conduct contributes to the good life for human agents, including the Eqikh EudaimonhV and the Magna Moralia, but the most complete surviving statement of his views on morality occurs in the Eqikh Nikomacoi .

Successful people ask better questions.

But on Aristotle’s view, the lives of individual human beings are invariably linked together in a social context. In the Peri PoliV he speculated about the origins of the state, described and assessed the relative merits of various types of government, and listed the obligations of the individual citizen.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable.

This is Photoshop’s version of Lorem Ipsum. Proin gravida nibh vel velit auctor aliquet.
Aenean sollicitudin, lorem quis bibendum auctor, nisi elit consequat ipsum, nec sagittis sem nibh id elit.
Duis sed odio sit amet nibh vulputate cursus a sit amet mauris. Morbi accumsan ipsum velit. Nam nec tellus a odio tincidunt auctor a ornare odio. Sed non mauris vitae erat consequat auctor eu in elit.

If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aenean non enim ut enim fringilla adipiscing id in lorem. Quisque aliquet neque vitae lectus tempus consectetur. Aliquam erat volutpat. Nunc eu nibh nulla, id cursus arcu.
