When it comes to planning the big day, it’s important that the events leading up to the wedding are as stress-free as possible. One of the most important events is the rehearsal dinner, which usually takes place the evening before the wedding.
The scriptures say a lot about wedding pin raising a child but it does not say anything about forking your child over to the government for their education. It’s all about the parent and the child. Even when it talks about rendering unto Caesar, it is not talking about your children. Your children have been given to you.
This child has been given to you; you have been given to your child. You are the perfect partnership for homeschooling high school. You know that you are capable because God will provide what you need to do the job that you have been called to do. And you know that when these steps occur, it’s going to be okay because the love for your child is going to cover all of it.
The joke is that ties are the standard Father’s Day gift. Spice up this traditional gift with Dad’s favorite camo pattern. You can find camo ties in various Mossy Oak and Realtree patterns, giving both you and Dad choices.
Look at your savings, yours and your betrothed and decide how much you can afford to put towards your wedding boards. Also calculate your living expenses and monthly earnings to work out how much you can save. You may be lucky enough to get some help from you or your fiance’s parents. Don’t forget to consider future living and set up expenses once you’re married. It’s nice to keep a little spare if you can for those expensive first few years of married life!
You will want to give yourself an hour to an hour and a half for dinner and cake. This will also depend upon the number of people being served and whether it is plated or buffet. Buffet will take a little longer so ask your caterer. They will have a good idea of their ability to get people fed. So for argument sake, it is a plated dinner and we give them an hour for dinner and cake. That brings you to 7:30 PM for dinner to start. This gives you a little cushion. 7:30 minus time to allow for guests to enter and be seated, your Bridal Party Introduction and “For the First Time Ever, We Introduce Mr. and Mrs…,” your big entrance to the dining room and the one hour worth of cocktails. 7:30 minus one hour and a half brings you to 6 PM. Are you getting how to do this?
Think about the options; think about what step to take today and what step to take in the days to come. You are not in charge of changing water into wine; you are in charge of doing that one thing for today that has required for you to do.
