Simple Ways To Dress Up Your Chairs
Every bride thinks about the perfect dress, the centerpieces, pretty programs, and just the right flowers. The one item in all of the beautiful décor that is typically forgotten is actually one of the most seen…the chairs. Chair covers can be expensive depending on the number of guests but there are tons of great ways to dress up all of your chairs at the reception, just a row or two at the...
Planners & Coordinators…What’s the Big Difference?
When planning a wedding, I always suggest that my clients make a list of things they must have, things they would like to have, and things they don’t want. I always insist that a wedding coordinator is on the must-have list! The first question I get when I tell them this is always the same, “what is the difference between a planner and a coordinator?” In some instances they are the same. For...
The Importance of a Wedding Planner, Part II
In our last blog, we talked about the importance of a wedding planner or at the very least a wedding coordinator. Today, I’m going to tell you a little bit about the value of a wedding planner. I get emails everyday from brides that are planning their very special day. Many are only a few months away from their big day, some have even less time than that. Most of them start their emails with the...

The Importance of a Wedding Planner, Part I
Growing up I was a typical girl. I loved Barbies, everything pink, and dreamed endlessly about my wedding day. If my Barbies had received a bill after their many weddings, it probably would have bankrupted the entire Matel company! I think every little girl dreams of her big day, from the perfect white dress, all of the flowers, and of course their prince charming. While we all think of those...
How to Find The Perfect Wedding Planner
How many of you have visited sites like “The Knot” or “Wedding Wire” looking for vendors? How many have typed “wedding vendors” into “Google”? I’m guessing most of you. I know I did all of these when I was planning my wedding. Since I was the first of my friends to get married I had no one to turn to for great referrals and I had to find great vendors on my own. I can say that despite everything...
