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...

Cleveland Botanical Gardens and Manakiki Golf Course Photos by:  Laura Dempsy     When I first met with Lauren she said that she didn't think she needed a wedding planner for the day.  Then about 3 months before the wedding we were talking again and Lauren, her fiance and her family were starting to feel the stress of the little things all coming together.  That's where I came in.  I was able to sit down with her and go through everything together, and really...

This is the first post of many in a new series of blogs I will be writing. Each blog will contain tips for planning your wedding, and each will be based on a certain topic: venue hunting, making your budget or general decor decisions. Just to name a few that I have floating in my head. I hope that you find this new series beneficial to your wedding planning needs and that it can help guide you in some way. So let's start it...

  So first things first.  The production triangle is not my idea and it is something used across many industries for production management.  My husband was the first one to introduce me to the production triangle.  In his day job as a machinist and engineer, his company uses it every day to get their projects done on time.  And we've also used it to explain processes to clients in our other business when they don't understand why some of the props...

So you've got your guest list finalized, your venue of choice is booked and your budget is set so you can plan the rest of your wedding day.  Then it happens. You're reviewing your contract with your DJ and see a clause about feeding him at the reception. You stop and say, "Oh my god, I didn't even think about that". This is just one prime example of a hidden expense that a lot of couples don't think about when they start to...

For some people seeing your partner at the alter for the first time is a tradition they want to uphold.  It can be a truly meaningful experience you want to share with your guests.  But over the past few years it has become just that, a thing of the past.  Nowadays a "First Look" is the way to go.  But a lot of people get caught up in how un-traditional it is and don't give it a shot in their...
