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.

[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?
