Becoming engaged to be married is an exciting time in one’s life, but all the details involved in planning a wedding – learning rules of etiquette, writing invitations, choosing flowers, music, cakes, and fashions – can often be a source of stress, as well. Get tips on how to reduce the stress and enjoy the wedding-planning process at a special program, “Getting Hitched in a Month: How to Plan a Wedding” on Monday, December 16, beginning at 7:00 pm, in the Large Meeting Room of the University Branch Library, 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
Professional event planner Liz Pallathumadom will share her insight and experience of planning a wedding, including making a reasonable budget, being flexible, and staying organized – even if you only have a month until the big day!
With a multitude of resources on topics of every kind, Fort Bend County Libraries can make wedding-planning easier and more affordable. Brides (and grooms) can plan the wedding of their dreams by beginning with one of the many books, magazines, or videos on the subject.
From wedding fashions and cultural traditions to how-to guides for cake-decorating and flower-arranging, the library offers resources and ideas for couples planning anything from a simple ceremony to an elaborate extravaganza. Check out a CD of wedding music. Learn about the history and meaning of flowers. Review travelogue videos and books about honeymoon locales around the world.
