Tune into the A-Channel Friday Morning

Marry Me Productions will be joining you for breakfast Friday morning on the A-Channel for two special features (starting at 7:15am). Stacey will be letting viewers know what's hot in the wedding industry for 2010 in a segment entitled "What's Hot".

Marry Me will also be planning a live on-air wedding in a segment entitled "I do Re-do". This isn't new to Marry Me though, we were happy to be part of another "I do Re-do" back in October with a wonderful couple: Ingrid and Gino on October 23 2009. The concept was thought up by the A-Channel who wanted to give married couples whose wedding days did not go as they planned, a chance to re-do their special day.

We're so excited to be part of this idea again and to get you excited, take a look at some of the photos (photos courtesy of Andrei Filippov) of Ingrid and Gino's wedding last October.

Education- LCBO style

The Spring 2010 LCBO Educational Program Guide has been released by the LCBO and as usual, it's loaded with exciting courses! Everything from wine appreciation courses and tutored tastings to cooking classes and lifestyle events. Once again, the LCBO doesn't disappoint boasting some of the most renowned chefs as instructors for some of the classes.

These classes are great ideas for a bachelorette party, bridal shower or even a great way for you and your fiance to learn about the different wine and food pairings that would be useful for your upcoming wedding day menu.

Having a destination wedding? What better way to get your guests excited about your wedding (not to mention a great way to meet before the wedding) then by taking the "Mexico's Treasures" or "Big Bold Italian Reds"tutored tastings or the "Evening in Chile" cooking class.

There are even classes the boys would love such as "Scotch", "Whisky or Whiskey" or "Explore the World of Rum" tutored tastings.

For prices, registration information, course descriptions and dates please visit or stop by your local LCBO store to pick up the booklet today.

Learning has never been so much fun !

Bling for your Bridesmaids

We are in love with jewelry from Jennifer Zeuner !

Her pieces are so personal and creative. We think they would make amazing gifts for your bridesmaids, especially since most of them can be personalized with initials or full names.

There is even one necklace we came across that has individual cut-out charms on it. How about engraving each charm with an initial of each of your bridesmaids as a special keepsake for yourself.

Must-Have Wedding Day Shots

When you think about it, all you have left over from the most magical day of your life are your photos. Any bride will tell you that the day goes so fast, it's so easy to forget to gather your high school girlfriends together for a shot or a generational shot of your grandmother, your mother and yourself.

Sure, your photographer does this for a living so they will most likely capture the major shots but you don't have this day to do-over so it's important to ensure you have every personal shot you want for your wedding day.

How do you do this? Weeks before your wedding, you sit down and list all the photos that you must have before the day is over.

Good news... In Style Weddings has already started the list for you. Head to to download their list of 40 photos your photographer can't miss.

Wedding Registry Option

So what do you do if you have been living together with your significant other for years and you have everything you need for your home? Traditionally, you are not supposed to register anywhere and the word eventually gets out that money is what you'd prefer. But what if you don't need the money or would rather see it go to a good cause?

Think about making your wedding registry an entire charitable cause for your guests to donate to. has over 700 grassroot charities listed. All you have to do is set up an account/registry in your name. You provide this information to your guests and they can donate to a particular charity that is close to your heart in liew of wedding gifts.

Can't really afford to donate all your wedding gifts to charity? Well, consider all the pre parties before the big day where the money spent on gifts can be donated to a charity instead.

Giving back has never been so easy for you and your guests!
