OnMarch 8, 2011Rain Wedding & Event Planning celebrated our first year
To our brides, please accept our heartfelt thanks and
sincere appreciation for your patronage. We have made many new friends
and reestablished contact with many old friends in our first year. The
results of our first year in business far exceeded our goals and expectations
for the first year. THANK YOU. Without you our loyal and new
clients, it would not have been possible.

Adult only reception??
Have you thought about your guest with children? Or, do you as a couple have children of your own? What to do with the kids???
This past weekend we got the honor of meeting up with Trish Davis owner of Elegant Event Sitters, Inc. while she was in town working for Army National Guard.
When we arrived at the Hilton in Beachwood we were not sure what to expect. We were shown the way to the "child care area" were the tables were all set with different toys and games for the kids to play with, the children were with their parents for the lunch break.
We put together some of our favorite quotes of love for all times. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do (and guys...feel free to use some of these on your women.....we know they will love them too, and love you even more for taking the time to think of them today)
Happy Valentine's Day everyone
Meredith & Becky
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that
they are joined... to strengthen each other... to be at one with each other
in silent unspeakable memories.

Following are some ideas
for color schemes for you:
getting married and your ultimate goal is to make your wedding day 100%
perfect. The last thing you want is for your friends and family to have
a terrible time and spend the next 50 years whispering about the things
that should have been done differently.
Most people have
attended at least one wedding that was really bad. By knowing the common
complaints, you can ensure that your wedding is a beautiful experience
for you and your guests.
1. Not Knowing Where to Go
One of the most common
complaints of wedding guests is being unsure of where to go or what to
This game gives everyone a chance to show how well they know the
bride to be! After taking the quiz, the bride reveals her answers. The
highest score wins!
1. What is her favorite drink?
2. What is her wedding date?
3. Where is she going on her honeymoon?
4. How did she meet the groom?
5. If she could travel anywhere in the world, where would she go?
6. What super power would she choose?
7. Where did he propose?
8. What is the name of her dog?
9. What is her middle name?
10. What is her biggest pet peeve about the groom?
This past week Rain met Donna Berns. She is the chef at Chenoweth Country Club and Banquet Center located at 3087 Chenoweth Rd., Akron, Oh 44312. She also handles their banquet sales.
Donna wrote about decisions that come with choosing the right reception hall for your wedding. She hits on all the key points for our couples to consider when they are scouting out the perfect location for their dream day...
Now that the biggest decision has been made, saying “YES”. There come
a lot of tough decisions.

We would like to thank those who have talked to us in regards to this post.
The topic that is hard to talk about...
Marriage and Pre-Marital Counseling.It is important to remember that the word “counseling”
can sometimes be misleading. Premarital counseling is not a form of
therapy. Premarital counseling is educational and will help couples
learn the skills they will need to support them in having a happy,healthyand lasting marriage.
Premarital counseling will help a couple to identify
and communicate about their fears, desires, beliefs, values, dreams,
needs, and other issues and baggage that was previously avoided or
denied, never discussed before.
Congratulations! You're Engaged!
1. Share the good news
Your parents-and any children you may have from a previous
union-should hear the news first. Then comes other relatives and close
friends. Whether you do it in person or over the phone, do it yourself.
Those closest to you will no doubt be hurt to hear the news second hand.
Never announce an engagement until a former union has been dissolved,
whether by divorce or annulment. 2. Meet the parents
Your engagement should not come as a shock to your parents.
