Keeping a definite style throughout will make your wedding memorable—and you’ll never have any regrets.
Like it or not, same-sex unions, marriages or commitment ceremonies are happening—and happening in a big way in this country. At Ken Miesner’s, we have been asked to provide floral services for several such occasions.
We’ve all been to a wedding where we are met by an usher who hands us a program for the ceremony. These programs provide a guide to the marriage ceremony; and some guests wish to keep these as a keepsake of the wedding. The program is especially useful if there are guests who are not of your faith. It will allow them to understand the sacred elements of your particular wedding service.
Skincare entrepreneur and Ladue High School alum Lauren Padawer is ready to take her company to the next level. She’ll be appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank to bat for Alaska Glacial Mud Co., which she owns and operates from Cordova, Alaska.
Usually, the first thing a bride-to-be wants to discuss with a floral designer is color.
Choosing music for your wedding should be one of the planning stage’s more enjoyable decisions, and it should be done together as a couple.

There is the classic wedding ditty that says, Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe.
Writing your thank-you notes should start right after any engagement party you may have. If people are kind enough to give you a gift, a lovely handwritten note (on a fold-over note card, written in black ink) is a priority—a priority you should carry all through the bridal shower, cocktail parties, rehearsal dinner and wedding events.
Men have it pretty easy when it comes to wedding attire: If the invitation says black tie, a tuxedo is in order, whether you own one or not. If you’re in the latter category, you must rent one. But don’t let the young guys at the tux shop rent you anything but the most traditional of tuxedos. In addition, instead of patent leather shoes that look like plastic, I recommend you wear a highly shined pair of black, lace-up dress shoes.
Get a load of you! You’ve found the perfect dress, veil and shoes. But there is one more accessory you need to choose: a magnificent bridal bouquet.
Planning a wedding tends to make brides-to-be and their mothers very irritable and annoyed—and usually with each other. What should be one of the happiest collaborations ever may turn into a nasty test of wills.
