We're in the LOVE business!

Did you know that only 10 % of engagements each year happen on Valentine's Day? Trumped by Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and her birthday, Valentine's get's number five spot for telling that gal, "You're the One". That totally surprised me! I thought nothing said "I WANT TO SPEND MY LIFE WITH YOU" like Valentine's Day!

So the good news is, you've already been proposed to! The bad news is, you probably haven't gotten very far with your wedding plans. Thank goodness that we are in the LOVE business!!! As you sit back at that candlelight dinner with your fiance, sipping champagne, enjoying the flowers he got you, think to yourself, "It's time to start planning!" Here's a quick checklist for what you should have accomplished by now for your 2011 wedding.

*Hired a planner
*Bought your dress
*Bought your bridesmaid's dress
*Booked your venue, photographer, DJ, florist, and transportation
*Selected your wedding cake
*Began working or completed on your "save the dates" and invitation designs

For the 10% of you who aren't engaged, here's some FABULOUS ideas for the perfect proposal!
First, be sure that you have asked her father's permission. Even the most "untraditional" gal will find this gesture romantic, thoughtful, and a very "husbandly" quality. It's a must do. Second, the location of the proposal is just as important as the question. This is a story you will tell your lifetime, to your kids, grandkids, and friends and family. Make it story that is fun to tell, one that no one will ever forget.
