A Historical Site is an Option for Your Wedding Venue

A Historical Site is an Option for Your Wedding Venue

Have you ever thought of adding a little historical charm to your wedding day? Venues, like the Douglasville Cultural Arts Center, are beautiful southern gems to consider.

The Cultural Arts Center is on the National Historical Preservation Society’s National Register and offers enchantment and elegance for weddings and receptions. To discuss the magnificence of this 100-year-old venue, I met with Emily Lightner, program assistant of the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/Douglas County

“The Cultural Center was once a home,” says Emily. She explained that it was once the home of deceased Georgia State Senator W. T. Roberts in the early 1900s.

Tips to Find the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

Tips to Find the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

You’ve found the perfect gown in that popular bridal magazine. You envision yourself walking down the aisle with all eyes on you… Gorgeous! At least, let’s hope so. Next to the venue, picking the right dress is very important for your wedding.

“Selecting the right gown depends on body type,” says Angelia Gladden, manager of Brides Atlanta in Douglasville. This premier salon, located on Douglas Boulevard, offers a stunning selection of gowns for you and your bridal party.

“You really need to come in open-minded… Try on everything that an associate pulls for you,” Angelia suggests. So, although you think that intricately beaded, A-line dress you discovered on the Internet would look fab’ on you, it may not. Try it on! You may find that another dress, which doesn’t appear to be a head-turner, looks undeniably hot on you instead!

Angelia recommends that brides educate themselves.
