Let's Play I Spy at Detroit Weddings

Gearing up for the big day? Be sure to make the moments last by having your guests capture them on camera. Your wedding will be full of precious moments but you won't be able to catch them all. Instead of trying to be everywhere at once, give your guests a fun "eye spy" game to play throughout the ceremony. No one will take the same picture twice!

I love this idea! No one will take the same photo! So fun!

Long or Short Engagement?

A lot of brides are asking the question: How long should I wait after I am engaged to get married?


The truth is, there is no right answer!

According to Jason Greene, the regional director of a statewide marriage and relationship program in Texas, a long engagement is better than a short one, but he also notes that what happens during the engagement has a greater impact on the length of the marriage that how long the engagement is.

With this being said, the length of time that is right, is different for each couple. Other factors may include how long a couple has been in a relationship before getting engaged, as well as the time of year they get engaged versus what time of year they want their big day to be held on.


So long or short? You decide what feels best for your relationship and the rest will work itself out!

Having Trouble Choosing A Wedding Date?

Here are a few tips and tricks that can solve your wedding date issues!


Choose your venue first!
If you’re not set on any specific dates then choosing a venue first can help you decide which date is right for your special day. It may be more difficult to start with a date then the venue because the odds of your preferred venue having the date you want, may be lower, putting you at risk of not getting one or the other.

Pick a date that has meaning!
Is there a specific anniversary or birthday of a past love one that was close with you? Maybe the day you met? 
Choosing a date that has meaning can make your special day that much more memorable.

Indoor or Outdoor?
If you want an indoor wedding that this doesn't really apply to you because you can pretty much choose any date you’d like and plan accordingly without having to deal with any weather issues. On the other hand if you want an outdoor wedding then you should start with May-June, or September-October, as those months will have the nicest weather. Of course when you live in Michigan it is tough to predict the weather so having a back-up plan is key!

May Couple of the Month ~ Rebecca + Richard, The Jam Handy

Rebecca is getting married on July 11th, 2015 at the Jam Handy building in Detroit, Michigan!
Rebecca met Richard at work, in the summer of 2013. They were both store managers for an aftermarket auto parts supplier. Rebecca had just been promoted and Richard transferred to the store nearest to hers. One Sunday, Rebecca went in to pick up parts for a customer and that is when they met. About a week later, she asked him to schedule some of his employees at her store, and asked her to lunch. They went to lunch that day, and like they say, the rest is history. They have been inseparable since.
A little less than a year later, on May 28th, 2014 Richard proposed. It was important to Rebecca that they keep that moment intimate and personal. They were at home in their favorite place, the kitchen, when Richard asked her to marry him. She knew he was the one, but when she saw her ring, a 3mm Tiffany milgrain Platinum band sans a diamond, she knew without a doubt that he knew the song her heart sang.
Her wedding has turned into a vintage, Detroit theme. Both Rebecca and Richard love to travel and are always on the go, but of all of the places they've been, Detroit is their favorite. They are getting married at the Jam Handy building on East Grand Boulevard in Detroit. Rebecca's four nieces will be her brides maids and Richard's two brothers, their best friend, and Rebecca's nephew will be their groomsmen. Rebecca didn't want things to be too ridged, so she just had her girls pick out neutral color dresses that they were comfortable in. Rebecca has tried to stick to neutrals throughout and has stuck to the local theme of Detroit. Her table's are named after streets in Detroit, instead of numbers, and they will be serving Faygo pop.

Congratulations Rebecca & Richard! YTB is thrilled to be a part of your special day and we are looking forward to making your wedding dreams a reality!

Hot New Trend: Naked Cakes


Want a wedding cake that stands out? Try a naked cake! 

This is a simple way to be unique and make a statement at your wedding! Naked cakes can even be less expensive, because they use less frosting. They are perfect for rustic weddings, but can work with any theme. Just add some colorful flowers or baby's breath to make it your own!

What Most Bridesmaids Don't Know

A bridesmaid is a very important part of every bride’s special day. It is the one time a bride can participate in proposing and it can be tough to choose the right women to stand next to them on the biggest day of their life. What brides may not understand is the fact that most women have never been in a wedding before so they probably don’t know what type of responsibilities they might be required to take on by agreeing to be in the wedding.

Here are a few important details to talk about with any bridesmaid so they know what to expect before accepting your proposal:

They’re going to spend money
It is assumed by most bridesmaids that they’ll be expected to pay a little out of pocket, but what most bridesmaids do not know is exactly what they have to pay for and how much it will cost them. Be sure to let them know up front so that they can be prepared and ready to go on your wedding day!

They may not like the dress
Every bride has a vision of what their wedding dress will look like, but this is not the only dress the bride has on her mind. Bridesmaids need to understand that while they may not like the color, style, or fabric that a bride chooses, it is what they love and want for their special day.

They will need to devote time
A bachelorette party is just one of a few small events that take place before a wedding, but what most bridesmaids don’t know is that it is not all on the maid of honor to help out with these events. The bachelorette party, wedding shower, and even days before the wedding brides may ask their bridesmaids to help them with any extra planning they may need help with.

To ensure your bridesmaid’s feel comfortable with all of these responsibilities, be sure to talk with them before your big day!
