(A word to the wise, give the couple's parents the opportunity to throw the first party, after that feel free to plan any additional.) Even in the day of social media, texts and instant messaging, the party should be held as close to the date of engagement as possible to get the celebratory spirit rolling.Read More

And what could be behind the glass-paned door in the corner? Why, a bar, of course - complete with more books and a couple of rocking chairsRead More
