Planning your Wedding can be stressful, but, you don’t need me to tell you that! With so many details and so littletime, it’s no wonder
Banket, pronounced bon-ket, is a long, skinny flaky pastry filled with a delicious almond sugar paste. It’s quite difficult to make, but very easy to eat!
You would think that after making this delicacy for the past 30 years, I’d be a pro.
The first batch I make each year is almost always “destroyed”; with almond paste seeping out of the crust like active volcano lava. And when I thought about the reasons why this was happening, I knew I had to share what baking a pastry taught me about marriage.
One of the perks of being an Officiant is experiencing my couple’s excitement as they share the details of their upcoming wedding. There’s smiles all around and you can feel a real energy in the room.
But most of the time that energy turns to silence when I ask if they plan to write their own vows. And, I’ve realized over the years it’s not that they don’t want to write them, it’s they don’t know how to write them.
If you’re planning your own wedding (as most Brides do these days), you may find yourself overwhelmed. And with all the details that go into a wedding big or small, it’s no wonder!
And no doubt you’ll get plenty of input from your friends, family, even your future Mother-in-law on everything from where to have the wedding and reception to the elements of your wedding ceremony.
Those that give you unsolicited advice truly mean well, and there might be times you’ll feel like your own wedding will end up being about what everyone else wants, and not what you want.
You’ve planned your wedding to a tee. You have the perfect venue, perfect flowers, most decadent cake and you’ve said yes to the dress. You’ve checked everything off your list and figure all the organizing is done, right?
When planning their wedding, some couples assume they have to find a Church Pastor to marry them, especially if they want something a little more memorable than the ambiance of City Hall.
