Flower Power

Nothing signifies a wedding more than flowers. Be it a single rose in a bud vase or an elaborate floral display; flowers spell W-E-D-D-I-N-G!! It's your day , so prioritize on how grand the flora will be, but don't eliminate the time held tradition of flowers. Many brides are opting to go the DIY route, which is perfectly understandable during this economic shift. I suggest going to a local floral shop and paying for a sample/ instruction. Watch while they create and go home to recreate your own display. If you' re not brave enough to do that try Craig's List and local floral design schools for new and upcoming florists that will offer you discounted rates. Be sure to check their portfolio and ask for a sample. And for those fortunate enough to splurge seek your wedding coordinator/planner and friends & family for references for the best floral designers in your area. Most of all enjoy the time spent selecting and creating the floral displays for your wedding day, it goes by so fast . Take Time to Smell the Roses.

Ready Set Plan: What to do after enagement

Congratulation!!!! You're Engaged You have accomplished what little girls dream of from 3 years on. You've meet Prince Charming and he has asked your hand in marriage. You've squealed and screamed and showed "the ring"! Now on your mark get set, plan!! Weddings aren't as simple and uncomplicated as they used to be. Many venues, are booked two and three years in advance. And there are so many vendors to choose from that one may feel overwhelmed. My advice is to set prioritise and seek the assistance of a professional event or wedding planner. Decide what is of most important for your special day and then seek wisdom from a planner on how to best accomplish your goal. We have been through the process a dozen times over and can predict trends and foresee possible pitfalls. We have relationships with vendors and can get you the best quality for your buck. Word of mouth always works best, also check Craig's list and other wedding sites such as ourwedding and wedding wire. Put on those jogging shoes and ready set GO!!! HAPPY PLANNING
