Inspiration Board - Navy & Fuschsia

Fuchsia and Navy is my one of my favorite wedding color trends.  Fuchsia is always a crowd favorite but the unexpected combination of navy is an excellent compliment to the bold color like fuchsia.  Don't be a afraid to go against the norm.  Navy is your new Black!!

The Bridal Party Gift

One question that comes up with all my clients is the bridal party gifts. This seems to puzzle couples all the time and I think it is because the word “wedding" is attached to it. It makes couples confused for some reason, but I say take the wedding or bridal party out of it and think of a gift your friends and/or family would appreciate.  For example, if you were buying grab bag gifts for everyone in your bridal party, what would you get them?  Take that approach and see what you come up with.

Here are some gifts I think will make your bridal party very happy!! 

Everyone loves to smell good, why not get them a bottle of perfume or cologne.

I think everyone has an iPod or some kind of apple gadget.  An iTunes gift card will come in handy for everyone.

Share your favorite restaurant with your friends with a gift card they can use to relax and relive some funny wedding planning stories once the wedding planning is over.

Going to the movies has become a costly night out, help your friends out with movie tickets.

Celebrate Your Culture Through Fashion


Fashion plays a part in every culture.  You can take cues from your culture's sense of style and make it a part of your wedding day style as well.  You can add small touches like accessories for the bridesmaids or ties for the groomsmen.

Wedding Decor - Using Your Linens


Linens can play a big role in your wedding day decor.  Ivory linens with a matching napkin is the standard but sometimes your tablescape needs more than the standard. Your linens include the tablecloth, napkins, overlays, table runners and chair covers so this gives you many different ways to utilize your wedding linens. 

Don't be afraid to use color. Adding your wedding color palette to your tablescape is a great way to enhance your wedding day d├ęcor. Trade that ivory for plum, fuchsia, chocolate or whatever your wedding color palette is.

Textured or patterned linens in your color palette is a bold statement.  This will take your decor from the nice to decadent.

Table runners are not just for the home. You can use this decor tip for your wedding as well.  This is a simple way to add a pop of color.  

If you want just a touch of color, you can change out the color of your napkins.  
Using an overlay can add a soft but special touch to your tablescape.

Chair covers have come a long way.  The usual cover and sash is now the standard.  Now chairs are just as dressed up as the guests.

I love the color purple!!  I really don't have much else to say other than that to be honest.  I needed some purple in my life, so I created an inspiration board just to express my love of the color once again.  I don't wear a lot of purple but I love to create with this color. So today is just about my purple passion!!

How To Hire A Wedding Planner




Many brides want a wedding planner but not sure how to find one, where to find one and when they finally do find one, they are not sure what they are paying for. To help those brides out there who want and/or need a wedding planner, I'm going to give you some pointers on how to choose the right wedding planner and when you do how to choose the right service.  
  
Once you have done your research and you found some wedding planners that you like, make an appointment for a consultation. This is free of charge so it doesn't hurt to meet them. Take your ideas, inspiration and questions with you. The most important thing you are looking for is chemistry. You will be working with your wedding planner more than any of your other vendors. You'll call on them for advice, just to talk and there will be lots of meetings together. You want to make sure you have a connection. Second, you want to get to know their wedding style. A good planner can plan any wedding but it is not just any wedding, it is your wedding. Your wedding has a personality of its own. Your planner's wedding personality should mesh with your wedding's personality.

So you met a wedding planner and you love them. You are ready to sign on the dotted line but first you have to pick which service works best for you. Most planners have three standard packages to choose from; full planning, partial planning or day of coordination. Your trusted planner can guide you on which one is best for you. They are not out to make you book their most expensive package. They want to do what makes sense for your planning needs. Also they will take your budget into account. If you want to go in armed with information, let me help you.

  
Full service - if you are in the beginning phase of wedding planning, have a busy home life, not really into planning  or don't even know where to start then this is your package .  Hire a wedding planner from the very beginning will be very helpful. This will save your sanity and save you from costly wedding planning mistakes.

Partial planning - if you enjoy doing the leg work and research, or you have done a lot of the planning yourself already, this is the package for you. A wedding planner can give you guidance and advice to help you make the right choices during the planning process.  Having a professional to call on will help you avoid wedding planning mistakes that you can't fix the day of your wedding.

 
Day of coordination - if all your plans are made but you don't want to worry on the day of your wedding this is the package for you. Now DOC is not literal, your wedding planner will come on board at least eight weeks before your wedding to help you tie up loose ends. This will be your chance to take off your planner hat and be a bride! If you are puzzled as to why this service may cost more than you anticipated, read this article on The Wedding Jeannie Blog explaing what DOC really is.       

I hope this was helpful to all the brides out there trying to decide if they need a wedding planner.  I am not posting this so you can hire me, I'm doing what I do best and helping couples plan their wedding any way I can. My professional advice of course is to hire a planner! The more professional help you have, the more enjoyable the planning process will be for you. I would love to help every couple plan their wedding and if you think I'm the wedding planner for you, feel free to give me a call so we can have our free consultation!!
