Still Seats on the Bus for the Sedona Bridal Show


Married Couples Pay More Than Unmarried Under Health Bill


WASHINGTON -- Some married couples would pay thousands of dollars more for the same health insurance coverage as unmarried people living together, under the health insurance overhaul plan pending in Congress.

The built-in "marriage penalty" in both House and Senate healthcare bills has received scant attention. But for scores of low-income and middle-income couples, it could mean a hike of $2,000 or more in annual insurance premiums the moment they say "I do."

The disparity comes about in part because subsidies for purchasing health insurance under the plan from congressional Democrats are pegged to federal poverty guidelines. That has the effect of limiting subsidies for married couples with a combined income, compared to if the individuals are single.

Sedona Bridal Show January 17, 2010


A lavish wedding giveaway is happening at the Sedona Bridal Show worth more than $40,000!! First the details of the Sedona Bridal Show. Brides and Grooms will meet on January 17th at 7am - 8am to load onto limo buses that will take them to Sedona. Expresso Subito and Sharko's Catering will have goodies to help wake you up.  Curtis Whipple will provide the entertainment at City North.   Kiss 104.7 and Mix 96.9 are holding a contest giving away seats on the limo bus so check out their websites to enter. There will be Sedona Wedding Planners on the limo buses to talk wedding and answer any questions. Or you can make your way up in your own car if you don't want to do the limo bus thing. Sedona is only 90 minutes from North Phoenix and a beautiful drive this time of year! Couples will be taken to L'Auberge, Amara and Tlaquepaque  to visit with the vendors and to register to win a $40,000 lavish wedding!! This is a fabulous high end wedding giveaway. We are talking incredible vendors providing their services to the couple who wins. So here are the participating vendors and what they are providing:
* L'Auberge is where the Ceremony will be held and they are only charging $50 per person for food to have your wedding there which is an absolute steal!
* L'Auberge is also giving away a 2 night Honeymoon stay for the Bride and Groom.
* Rehearsal Dinner at Tlaquepaque provided by Main Street Catering
* Photos by Sedona Bride
* Videography by Serendipity Videography
* Cake by Sedona Cake Couture who has been featured on the Food Network Cake Challenge twice!!

So here's the skinny on the tickets. It's $10 per person or $15 per couple for those that drive themselves up. And it's $25 per person or $35 per couple for those that want to come up in the bridal buses. The Sedona Bridal Show is sponsored by The Wedding Chronicle.
