Imagine shopping on line at different stores and being able to merge the photos of what you like into one place to see how the outfit looks together. Now image that you like what you see and you would like to purchase all the items. It would be pretty time consuming to “check out” from each on line store. What if there were an app that put all the items from the difference stores into one universal on line shopping cart allowing you to just check out once? Good news, that technology now exists with the app called Miner. Miner provides you with access to the latest styles and sales from your favorite stores and brings it to you all in one beautiful (free) iPhone app. You can easily sort by what’s new and on sale, or search for exactly what you need. Miner shows you all your options, and lets you buy with a single touch. On Miner app, you can view everything together, facilitating side-by-side comparisons of items across your phone screen. Pull together an outfit with components from different stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Banana Republic and Forever 21—and pay for them together. Retailers guidelines on free shipping, loyalty programs and returns are not affected by the app.

bride and groom dancing 2

When a couple is welcomed onto the dance floor for their “first dance” at a wedding reception, all eyes are on them for sure. We always recommend to the engaged couple that they take at least a few dance lessons prior to the wedding day. Lessons are available in a group or individually at most dance studios in the area. Dance lessons are a great diversion from the everyday task of wedding planning.

Need some suggestions for a “first dance” song? Here are some favorites:

The Way You Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra

In My Life- The Beatles

The Luckiest – Ben Folds

Forever – Ben Harper

Crazy Love- Van Morrison

At Last – Etta James

Got to Get You Into My Life- The Beatles

All I Want Is You – U2

Can’t Help Falling In Love – Like Crazy

Into The Mystic – Van Morrison

LOVE – Michael Buble

That’s How Strong My Love Is – Otis Redding

You Are The Best Thing – Ray Lamontagne

Dance Studios:

Towson Dance Studio 9486 Deereco Road in Timonium (410) 828-6116 

Arthur Murray Dance Center 6800 York Road in Baltimore (410) 417-6216

Beginning Ballroom 412 Evesham Avenue in Baltimore (410) 231-3262

Have Fun!

Selecting ceremony music can be a difficult process.  It’s usually not music that most of us are all that familiar with and decisions are usually based on what we’ve seen at past weddings. has samples of each piece and you can purchase the songs to hear them in their entirety for just 99 cents.  They even have them broken down by suggested places within the ceremony – processional, recessional, preludes, etc.  You can even download sheet music for your musicians!
