Wedding Partner Profile
We have dozens of local wedding partners who are available to help make your event special.  The directory is always available at "Plan Your Wedding" for you to find the right place and item for your specific need.  And in order to help, we are taking just a few minutes to let you know about things happening with each partner.  This month we are focusing on Affordable Elegance.  The Coeur d'Alene Bridal and Rental shop has been in business for 12 years.  When you visit their site you will find a variety of pictures of wedding, bridesmaid, and flower girl dresses.  There is also a sale happening right now.  Also you can take a look at Heartland Ranch and the new outdoor wedding site. Reservations are being taken for 2009.  Here is the link if you would like more information: Affordable Elegance.
