It’s a Nice Day for a Green Wedding!

As wedding season approaches, I thought I would share some pearls of wisdom with bubbling brides-to-be; ) As some of you may or may not know, I was a wedding and event planner for many years. And as of a few months ago, I planned & put on my own wedding! I took what I learned over my years in the biz and put it all together with our limited budget to host the most eco-friendly and affordable weddings I had ever planned. If I do say so myself, it was quite beautiful and I missed none of the elements that come with a large and expensive event. So I figured I would share some insider tips and secrets with you in the case that you or someone you know is headed down the aisle and is frantic about finances and/or their carbon footprint ; )

  • Plan Ahead & Be Flexible - I’ve planned many weddings within all kinds of time frames. From a couple of years to a couple of weeks. Depending on the size and style of your wedding, you may only need a few months but I typically advise on a year. Especially if you are looking for a specific date or venue, in which case I advise 18 months. This is why I say, be flexible. More often then not, the perfect date and/or venue will not be available at the same time so be sure to have options. And a lot of times, getting 1 and or both come at a premium cost. Consider an off day like a Friday or a Sunday, as well as an off season date. Many venues have lower rates on off days and seasons so try to plan around those dates to get the best possible rate in your dream location. Also, think outside of the box. Traditional venues come with many rules and stipulations that can either jack up the cost of your day or force you to use vendors that aren’t at the top of your list. In my instance, we chose to do our ceremony at a park overlooking the ocean. We had our guests stand, created an aisle with flower petals and let the scenery be our decor. Price tag – $0. Afterward we had some champagne with our guests, sent them on their way to dine and freshen up while we took our photos, making it back home just in time for our backyard reception. Lucky for us we have a fun patio complete with a tiki bar but if you’re looking for affordable, consider asking a friend to use their house or yard for the reception. It can be their wedding gift to you. Stringing up some market lights will do wonders to a backyard, making it look simple and elegant for the cost of dinner & a movie, if not less. We saved time, a ton of money, frustration and added to our eco-karma by not renting chairs or having anything delivered. So again, be flexible with your times, dates, themes, etc. because you may be surprised at how great it turns out if you give yourself some options ; )
  • Pool Your Resources & Get Creative – There are many elements to a wedding: flowers, music, dresses, food, photos, videos and on and on. And having been a part of the wedding world for almost a decade, I will tell you that as...

Summer Lovin’

If you haven’t noticed, summertime is wedding time. One of my many hats is that of a wedding planner so I definitely get my fill come fall be it from working them or going to them ; ) And it is very difficult to stay healthy at such events but have no fear as the healthy, voyaging, event planner is here to help ; )

The trip is exhausting enough as flights or road trips are an excuse to eat fast and convenient. Then you get to the hotel and eat a nice, expensive, in room meal that is most likely greasy and eaten at an ungodly hour. Fast forward to wedding day where you spent all morning getting ready so all you had was coffee and maybe a starchy bagel. You arrive at the glorious event famished so you gorge on hors d’oeuvres and alcoholic beverages. You pick at your lame and tasteless chicken or fish or for us veggies, cold pasta, and you feel like a cow come the bouquet toss. Sound familiar?

Here are a few tips to keep your trip to, at and from the festivities enjoyable and guilt free:
∗ Pack enough protein bars for the flight/ride, wedding day and trip home. Cliff bars and Luna bars are yummy and Vegan!!
∗ If you are stuck at an airport, there is always a food court that has some kind of place to get a sandwich or a salad that you can order your way. Smoke may come out of the fast food person’s ears but just ask and they will do it with proper instruction. I know it’s easy to run to Mcd’s but take an extra few minutes to scour your terminal. A lot of ports have “Chili’s to gos” now and you can great a salad there or my personal fave, a black bean burger with all the fixin’s (sans cheese). If you are running late, don’t!!! Plan ahead, eat breakfast and get there on time!!
∗At the hotel, try to resist temptation and instead of ordering room service, find the local grocery store, get a cheap cooler and stock up with veggies, fruit and sandwich stuff for dinner and breakfas...

CA Wedding Laws

The Laws Of The State Of California Make It Unnecessary For Persons Performing Marriages To File Credentials With The Clerk Of The Court Or With Anyone Else. The County And State Are Removed From Any Responsibility For Verification Of Credentials. The State Does Not Maintain A Central Registry Of Members Of The Clergy. Any Such Concern For Verification Is Totally At The Discretion Of The Parties To The Marriage. (The Universal Life Church Monastery Still Recommends That You Check With The County Clerk Where The Ceremony Will Be Held.) What Authorization Do I Need To Perform A Marriage In California? In California, It Is The Ordination Or Investment By The Denomination That Gives Each Clergy Member The Authority To Perform The Marriage Rite. Family Code, Sections 400-402 Are The Statutes Pertaining To Whom Can Solemnize A Marriage In California. The Following Is From California Family Code Sections: 400. Marriage May Be Solemnized By Any Of The Following Who Is Of The Age Of 18 Years Or Older: 420. A Priest, Minister, Or Rabbi Of Any Religious Denomination. No Particular Form For The Ceremony Of Marriage Is Required For Solemnization Of The Marriage, But The Parties Shall Declare, In The Presence Of The Person Solemnizing The Marriage And Necessary Witnesses, That They Take Each Other As Husband And Wife. 421. Before Solemnizing A Marriage, The Person Solemnizing The Marriage Shall Require The Presentation Of The Marriage License. If The Person Solemnizing The Marriage Has Reason To Doubt The Correctness Of The Statement Of Facts In The Marriage License, The Person Must Be Satisfied As To The Correctness Of The Statement Of Facts Before Solemnizing The Marriage. For This Purpose, The Person May Administer Oaths And Examine The Parties And Witnesses In The Same Manner As The County Clerk Does Before Issuing The License. 422. The Person Solemnizing A Marriage Shall Make, Sign, And Endorse Upon Or Attach To The Marriage License A Statement, In The Form Prescribed By The State Department Of Health Services, Showing All Of The Following: (A) The Fact, Date (Month, Day, Year), And Place (City And County) Of Solemnization. (B) The Names And Places Of Residence Of One Or More Witnesses To The Ceremony. (C) The Official Position Of The Person Solemnizing The Marriage, Or Of The Denomination Of Which That Person Is A Priest, Minister, Rabbi, Or Member Of The Clergy. (D) The Person Solemnizing The Marriage Shall Also Type Or Print The Person'S Name And Address. 423. The Person Solemnizing The Marriage Shall Return The Marriage License, Endorsed As Required In Section 422, To The County Recorder Of The County In Which The License Was Issued Within 10 Days After The Ceremony. 424. At The Request Of, And For, Either Party To A Marriage, The Person Solemnizing The Marriage Shall Issue A Marriage Certificate Showing The Facts Specified In Section 422. Please Note That, When Filling Out A Marriage License, The State Requests That You Use The Title "Minister" Or "Reverend", And Not "Officiant", In Box #29D. The County Clerks Also Require That You Enter Your Denomination, "Universal Life Church", In Box #29B. Failing To State A Denomination Results In A Rejection, And Requires A Duplicated Marriage License. Same Sex Wedding Law: Allows Gay Domestic Partnerships ( View Ruling ) To Perform A Marriage In California You Need To Be Ordained And May Be Required To Provide Proof Of Ordination Such As An Ordination Credential , Wallet Credential , Or A Letter Of Good Standing From The Church.
