It’s the day after Christmas and many young women in our city are waking up newly engaged.

What now?

Before you pick up the phone to call us its really important to have a wedding date or at least have a couple of dates in mind

At Beginnings we feel your first vendor call should be to a wedding planner, if not us, then find one of the extremely talented and professional planners that Houston has to offer.

We would love to hear your proposal stories and we would love to post them here. Send us an email and tell us your story.(pamela@thebeginningbride.net)

This is a very exciting time for any newly engaged couple and we at Beginnings look forward to hearing from you.
Even though we are out of the office until Monday December 29th, we will be checking messages, so give us a call. 713.401.9664

I am so excited to share with you a couple of ways to save on your wedding gown. The first is PreownedWeddingDresses.com This site has some wonderful designer gowns at lower than on sale prices Often the seller will have the original receipt Be sure to check them out and see what treasures you might find there.

The second place I want to tell you about is Millies in Houston at 10932 Westheimer takes wedding gowns on consignment. At Millie’s you can spend some time shopping and perhaps find “just the right ” dress for you.

I received an email this morning and I wanted to share the information with all of you. I understand this holiday season people may feel they are not able to give as they have in the past to worthy causes. This idea takes only a few moments and costs very little. When you are addressing your Christmas cards this year, add this address to your list.

6900 Georgia Avenue,NW
Washington,D.C. 20307-5001

It only takes a moment and if we all participate think of the effect.
