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.

[caption id="attachment_854" align="alignright" width="315"] Photo by: Johnny Joo[/caption] When wedding planning, one of the biggest questions that will come up, mostly from others, will be "Are you having kids at the wedding?".  Let's break it down this way, you're going to fit into one of these two types of people: ONE:  Ah, the squeals and cries of delight as a child is twirled around the dance floor.  That totally makes me smile. TWO:  If one more kid trips on my dress on this...

So as a wedding planner, I get asked a lot of questions and this is one that I have seen asked again and again on local wedding boards. I'm very honest with my couples, so let me be honest with you. This should be a no-brainer. Your vendors are working hard for you all day.  Would you want to go without a meal while working? Photo Credit:  Johnny Joo My boss doesn't pay for my meals, why should I pay for theirs? You...

Communicating to your guests that you are having an adults only wedding is not so much about how the wedding invitation is worded, but more so how the actual invite is addressed. First let's talk about ways that you can include the information within your invitation.  The more elaborate your wording the better.  Most people know that a "luxury hotel" or "famous art museum" are not child friendly.  That being said you can also place the words "adults only", or something...

Wait a second, isn't a personal assistant something that powerful CEOs have to help run their days?  A person that only business owners need, I mean really.  The answer is no.  First lets take a second and be honest, wouldn't you want a personal assistant to help you now in your every day life?  I know I would.  Add to that the normal stress load of a wedding planning and then the craziness that is the wedding day.  That is...

Wedding planning entails a lot of pieces and parts that are put together over a course of time.  Things that are discussed in length before making a decision on.  Things that are thought about over and over again.  Here's something that tends to fall to the wayside: the pieces and parts that are specifically needed on the day.  I'm not talking about your flowers, or dessert or even your transportation.  (Though sometimes that is overlooked as well.)  No, I'm talking...

So working with past clients I field a lot of questions on wedding etiquette.  Who is supposed to pay for what?  Where does this person stand?  The thing I get asked about a lot is invitations.  So for your reading pleasure, here is a very simple rundown of wedding invitation etiquette. These are questions that I have been asked personally or have known to been asked of invitation designers I have worked with. Of course, not everything is covered here, but...
