Dum Dum De Dummmmm.....

June already! Hard to believe isn't it! With my wedding exactly 6 weeks away, I decided to try a little humor today with some fun wedding facts and trivia! I've also been busy creating wedding cards for the upcoming wedding season! Hope you enjoy the read and as always, feel free to provide your comments and antidotes!

Did you know that the longest engagement lasted for 67 years!!!! It took Octavio Guillen and Adriana Martinez that long before they finally tied the knot! They were each 15 years old when they were engaged and that made them 82 when they married! Don't EVERY complain about your length of engagement! :)

This cute Wedding Card inspired by my own wedding invitations that I made. I fell in love with the white lace cut out paper that I stumbled upon. This pair is available in any background and accent color! Perfect for coordinating with the brides wedding colors!

Are you engaged or married? Where do you fit in with this statistic? 74% of brides get a diamond engagement ring. Of those, 60% are included in the selection process, while three percent actually pick the ring. My engagement ring is a diamond solitaire, i was included in the selection process however I let Jimmy make the final decision...and he made the perfect one! What month are you getting married in? Or were you married in? I'm July...hmmmmmmmm.....

Love is definitely in the air this time of year! I absolutely LOVE the colors I used in this card! Again, this card is available in any color combination and I would love to create one for you! This card is not only great for weddings, but also anniversaries, birthdays, engagements or JUST BECAUSE!!

"Married when the year is new, he'll be loving, kind and true;
When February birds do mate, you wed nor dread your fate;
If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know;
Marry in April when you can, joy for Maiden and for Man;
Marry in the month of May, and you'll surely rue the day;
Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you will go;
Those who in July do wed, must labor for their daily bred;
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see;
Marry in September's shrine, your living will be rich and fine;
If in October you do marry, love
will come but riches tarry;
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember;
When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last".

Traditional and elegant! The wedding bells are make a resurgence! Friends tying the knot soon? Attach this pretty card to your parcel and give them an original card they can cherish for years to come! Available in all colors!

The tradition of tying cans to the back of the newlywed's ve hicle originated long ago when items which would produce noise were tied to the back of the couple's carriage to scare away evil spirits!

So there you have it! A few fun facts and trivia about weddings! I also hope you have enjoyed my wedding cards! Check out my shop to see other variations and please remember...I LOVE to create custom items and if interested please contact me any time!!!
