Do I Send A Gift, Or Not?

I can't go to my friend's wedding, do I have to send a gift?

If you don’t attend, you are technically not required to send a gift. However, it is customary to send a gift anyway, and any gift that you do send will be appreciated. The general rule is that you have up to a year after the wedding to send something.

Plan Ahead

Give yourself plenty of time to plan your wedding the way you want it. It's not uncommon to spend as much as a year to start planning your wedding. The earlier you start planning your big event, the better, especially if you have your heart set on a certain location and date. If you are flexible about the date, you will have a better chance of booking the location of your dreams.

Wedding Planning Basics

1. When do you want to get married? This should be one of the first things you decide, along with the time of day to have your ceremony.
2. Do you need a wedding planner? Is it necessary and is it in the budget.
3. Who will officiate your ceremony? Do you have a minister already or do you need to find someone on Can-A-Lope Weddings.
4. What is your budget? This may be one of the most important aspect of your planning.
5. How many people are you wanting to invite?
6. How many people in the wedding party? Do you want to have a flower girl and or a ring bearer?

A True Blessing!

Dear Mr & Mrs. DeBlase,

Made Our Wedding Very Special

Hi Can-A-Lope Weddings,
I wanted to send a reply back and thank you so very much for the quick and easy way things were handled for my wedding. Benjamin was wonderful,It was like he knew us and our family,which made our wedding very special. My husband and I were so very pleased and our small ceremony was made more special by his words. We could not have had a more perfect day. Dean and I want to thank you for helping make our day perfect!!
Dean and Anna, from Texas.

It's A Wonderful Life!

It has already been a year since you performed our wedding ceremony (Jeff), and it has been a wonderful year of marriage, and we look forward to many more years together.
Thank You for the services you provide.

Friendly Manner

We would like to thank J.J. for helping to make our wedding special and so memorable. J.J. did a wonderful job and we will certainly recommend him and Can-A-Lope Weddings to any of our friends who may be planning a wedding. We initially had some reservations about having someone perform the ceremony that we did not even know. However, I must say that J.J. immediately put everyone at ease with his easy and friendly manner. Thanks again J.J.!

Your Welcome!

Thank you.!!!! Larry made our day perfect!! He was very professional from the very beginning...from the first conversation to the day of the ceremony.....I would highly recommend Larry and Can-A-lope Weddings for understanding the stress of planning a wedding...

Tie The Knot

My goodness what a stress free way to tie the knot!! Steve was the most special man you could have ever sent to Dennis and I. At the end of a quick ceremony we had a beautiful new friend, he is a local man and was familiar with many things such as great wines, great cheese, great restaurants, and learning that he has married over 500 couples. Steve went the nine extra yards for us given the short notice. Dennis and I highly recommend him. Thank you Can-A- Lope Weddings, from the happily married Mrs Sandra.

Wonderful Job!!

We just wanted to thank you for Pastor Dave Rydell's incredible services. Our wedding took place last Thursday and he did a wonderful job!! He was so personable and included our whole family (the kids too) in the ceremony. He has wonderful suggestions that helped us create a ceremony that truly represented us. Everything, from the planning to the actual ceremony, was very smooth. Thank you again.
God Bless,
