I read this informative and helpful blog post from SweetChic Events about why your catering manager is not wedding coordinator. For brides out there that believe they don’t need a wedding planner or at the very least a day of coordinator, you should read this post. I’ve experienced this first hand so I completely agree. My bride left her escort cards with the venue manager because she was told they would take care of it, which they would have done if she alphabetized them. Once he realize they weren’t he got frustrated and he was going to lay them out without alphabetizing it. He was too busy to do this an hour before the wedding started. If I wasn’t there to complete the task, it could have lead to the guests searching for their names in a disorderly fashion.
Another blog post I’m loving right now is NYC Wed Planner by Anderson Green Events. Lisa has been featuring a series on how to hire a wedding planner for the past couple of weeks. This advice can be applied to hiring all your vendors. I must read for couples in the beginning of their planning process.
In the August issue of Brides there are some out the box wedding favors for those struggling on what to give their guests. One of my favorites is the pancake and waffle mixture for a brunch wedding. I’m bias because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Also there was a great quote that I trully believe "The right ribbon can take a favor to a whole new level". Presentation is everything!!
This is going to be a one-of-a-kind and intimate event (by appointment), giving brides the rare opportunity to work with a designer in person to collaborate on her gown. Join Michelle Rahn at the Caryle Hotel for the Pop Up Bridal Event on August 27th - 28th when she debuts her new collection.
