It's no lie that the majority of wedding guests are very much looking forward to enjoying a drink at your wedding reception. And alcohol, being the great social lubricator that it is, often helps to get the party going. But along with having a good time, it's important to encourage moderation with consumption to ensure safety as well as a good time.

Johnny Joo hard at work First thing I must say when tipping your wedding professional team, please remember that it is not a mandatory expense. Gratuities should only be given to those wedding professionals who you felt have gone above and beyond their contracted duties. Small business owners should never be overlooked either since their businesses are often run by just one person. Before dishing out gratuity, double-check your contracts. Some professionals will include it in their contract, and I...

The wedding cake. A staple of a wedding celebration and most people expect to see one. But today people need to throw their expectations out the window. Don't get me wrong, about 80% of my couples opt for a wedding cake, but the other 20% have something different. From cupcakes to donuts to pies to cookies...

This one topic right here only has one right answer, and that answer is the one that works best for you. I know, that's not really an answer, but it's 100% true. Look, as a wedding planner, I love when my couples rent their linens. In fact, it's almost one of those things I want to require my couples to do. But I also know that not all budgets allow it and sometimes you HAVE to...

Wedding planning is a series of interviews with professionals that will provide you with a service on your big day. But what do you need to be asking? For instance, you know you want pictures of your wedding, but how do you sift through the hundreds of available photographers in your area? I guarantee there are hundreds of them but I also guarantee there is one out there for you. Just like your perfect person, it...

So I have had many a chats with couples at places like a We Thee Wed wedding show, and they dismiss my services because they already have a venue coordinator at their venue.  Now when I hear this two things happen.  One, I kindly respond with my prepared speech what makes a wedding planner different.  Something that I have told couples over and over again, which is basically this blog.  Two, I secretly scream out in my head in frustration...

So the big day is getting closer and you forgot to purchase gifts for those amazing people you asked to be in your wedding party.  (Or your first cousin once removed that you were forced into having stand with you.)  Or maybe your on trend and are putting together "Bridesmaid/Groomsmen Proposal Boxes".  Yes, that is a thing.  It's pretty simple, a box of fun items given to the people you wish to be in your wedding party with a card...

So something I have seen time and time again on local boards for wedding planning is questions about RSVP's, and to me some questions seem like common sense, but since they are asked over and over again……I guess they’re not. Now I’ve already written a blog about invitation etiquette, and I lightly touched on RSVP's, so if you just want an overview you can skip to that blog now.  Within this one I am going to go into much more detail...

You have graciously accepted the honor of standing in front of a crowd while all of the attention is on two people getting married – you are now a member of a bridal party, the honor attendants, entourage, groupies, whatever you want to call yourselves.  Congratulations!  Before I get into the main points I must first call out to those who bestowed upon you this honor.
