Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Ocotber is the official month to help promote awareness about breast cancer. Although breast cancer is well-known by many, we want to help make sure that everyone is aware how life-threatening this type of cancer is and how many lives it effects on a daily basis.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. It is the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women and is the second most common cancer death in Caucasian, African American, Asia, and Native women. The statistics of how common this type of cancer is, is extremely devastating.

*1 out of 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer throughout the course of their lifetime.

*More than 1 out of every 4 cancers diagnosed in women are breast cancers

*A women's risk of breast cancer doubles if she has a first degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
DON'T sit back and watch this disease kill way too many amazing women. You can help!
Walk with us....October 23rd, 2010. The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive walk that gives hope for a future without breast cancer. This is you opportunity to come and honor breast cancer survivors, remember those who have lost, and raise funds and awareness to help end this disease!!
Please contact celebrate! if you are interested in donating to this fund or interested in joining us in this walk!

New Review

We just got in this amazing review from our previous bride, Traci, from
5/5 Stars Overall
Quality of Service
Value for Cost

Traci's Remarks:
I could not have had the wedding of my dreams without celebrate!. Jen and Jenna helped me go from scattered ideas to a fairytale day. They were always available for everything, from selecting the location to the cake tasting. The day of the wedding is generally known as the most stressful day for the bride. Thanks to celebrate! I was able to just sit back and relax.

End of the Night Surprises

I always love to have the perfect wedding end with a little surprise. For example, a Krispy Kreme Donut display with coffee or McDonalds cheeseburgers and fries delivered or a "bride and groom's favorite junk food" bar. Nothing makes your guests smile more after a night of dancing and drinking then to be able to put something oh so yummy in their tummies.
Here are some of my favorite ideas.....

Krispy Kreme and Coffee Station

Order a bunch of individually packaged donuts from Krispy Kreme, most stores will even deliver to your wedding location. Have your wedding planner arrange the donuts along with hot brewed coffee equipped with to-go cups on a table by the exit so your guests can grab a treat with a cup of joe on their way home.

Pizza Bar
Have your wedding planner order or coordinate with your catering company to make numerous different types of pizzas for your guests to nibble on prior to their departure. A cute addition is to have your wedding planner place out pizza cutting wedding favors such as the ones below in the pizza bar for your guests to grab along with their favorite pizza slice.

Bride and Groom's Junk Food Deliver

Have your wedding planner coordinate with your catering staff to make up your favorite junk foods in a mini version. Place your cheeseburgers, fries, popsicles, chicken wings, corndogs, etc. for your guests to munch on. Really pizazz your guests by sending out these junk foods by having your catering staff deliver the food on silver trays. Talk about wow-ing!!!
