New food operator license helps home cooks, bakers
SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Lauren Wodnicki's kitchen is clean and she's going to keep it that way. It's a requirement of the cottage food operator license she is pursuing to start a home baking business, Lauren Loves Cake.
Wodnicki and others hoping to sell food they've prepared in their kitchen started to apply for a new license that became available on Oct. 1 after years of lobbying the General Assembly.
Something borrowed: Georgia planner nabs wedding grifter
MILTON, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia wedding planner came in handy for one couple who nearly had more than $2,000 stolen from their reception.
News outlets report Kristina Dardo was arrested Saturday after planner Ashley Baber noticed her among the wedding guests, "holding a jacket in an odd manner," and thought it a particularly odd garment for the 90-degree weather.
The Wedding Planner: Reality TV star visits Valley, stresses prep for big day should be enjoyable
McALLEN — David Tutera learned quickly not to mess with Texas.
Years ago, the celebrity wedding planner and television personality filmed two episodes — one in Dallas and one in Fort Worth — of WE TV’s “My Fair Wedding.”
It was then he realized Texans are proud of where they are from.
“You never take away the cowboy boots,” Tutera said yesterday at the Casa De Palmas Renaissance Hotel in McAllen. “It is like taking away their lives. There are traditions that were meant to be.”
Today's weddings are often planned down to the tiniest detail, sometimes at great expense, to create a truly "perfect" day. But for better or for worse, one random element remains: the speeches and toasts that honored guests stand up and give.
( NewsUSA ) - As warm weather approaches, so does wedding season, and family-focused entertainment network UP TV heads down the aisle with a pair of new, unscripted series set to debut this summer.
The series, "Our Wedding Story," takes viewers inside the relationships between the brides and grooms. With exceptional and cinematic storytelling, viewers will get to live each couple's love story - from the moment they met to the walk down the aisle.
For wedding favors, personalize, localize, do it yourself
Once, the little gifts that couples gave out to wedding guests were as elegantly predictable as just about every other aspect of a traditional wedding. A little bud vase printed with the happy couple's names, perhaps. Or a tiny faux-Lenox picture frame inscribed with the date.
Somewhere along the way, couples and wedding planners took a different approach. They figured out that fragile trinkets like these were often taken home and ignored, or, worse, left behind at the reception.
Wedding bill blues: Is Charleston’s booming destination wedding industry pricing out locals?
Pick practically any weekend of the year and the Charleston area is likely playing host to more than 100 weddings.
That includes January, February and even July — months that would be considered the off-season in other towns.
In just a few years, the Charleston area has emerged as a top destination to tie the knot, creating a lucrative, year-round industry with vast opportunities for small and locally owned businesses.
If you’ll be attending a wedding anytime soon, know the wedding guest rules. Wedding planner Sarah Pease has some definite don’ts:
• Don't deviate from a schedule: Whether you're helping or attending, stick to the timeline as not to throw the carefully planned event off.
• Don't wing a wedding speech: People who say they're just going to wing it crash and burn every time. And keep it short. Five minutes might not sound like much but it’s too long.
