The Reason I Plan

This is why I do what I do....

I provide information to Brides & Grooms-to-be because I know firsthand how exhausting and overwhelming it is to research information while planning a wedding. I became a wedding planner because I absolutely adore weddings and I enjoy the "behind the scenes" planning that comes with it. I know that it may sound crazy, but I enjoy doing the research, preparing time lines, drafting agreements, visiting vendors, and maintaining order at events! Not to mention that I have a knack for organization!! I like to have a plan and a list for everything!! I even keep a list of my lists!

I like to know (1) how things will get done, (2) who will do them, (3) when they will get done, and (4) what are the resources required for them to be done. <--That is how you plan a wedding. I work with and for the "Working Woman". I provide budget assistance and maintenance, and I provide assurance and peace of mind.

I plan weddings for the "Working Woman". The Working Woman is a woman who plans to work until right before her wedding. I know which vendors are a match for her and I help her save valuable time by doing the leg work for her. I was the "Working Woman" when I planned my own wedding so I speak from experience. Planning a wedding is a tedious task in itself. It becomes even more so when you throw in daily life activities!

A wedding is a major financial undertaking and to avoid problems, it is wise to develop (and stay within) a budget. I can help you be practical and realistic in maintaining your budget. The last thing you want to bring to your new marriage is wedding debt!

My ability to assess a situation quickly and determine a proper solution will put the "Working Woman" at ease (along with her family). This provides her with the comfort of knowing that her wedding is in the hands of a professional who will resolve problems quickly, professionally, and discreetly.

Now that you know a little more about me, call to schedule your free wedding assessment so that I can get to know about you, your fiance`, and your dream wedding! We will also discuss all of the ways that I can assist you!

Your Happily Ever After is just a phone call away....

Food Terms You NEED to Know!

WEDDING RECEPTION FOOD TERMS (via: www.weddingsforaliving.com)


ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of a formal Italian meal. Unlike hors d’oeuvres, antipasto is served at the table and traditionally consists of cured meats, marinated vegetables and cheeses.


BUFFET: Casual way to serve a large group of guests; a variety of dishes displayed on tables that guests can pick and choose from. Typically doesn’t work for venues with numerous small rooms.

FAMILY STYLE: Platters of food are placed at each table. Wedding guests help themselves and pass the food around to one another.

FRENCH SERVICE: This individualized and highly skilled type of food service is not very common in the U.S. Rather than being plated in the kitchen, white-gloved waiters prepare food table side from a single large dish or platter held by another waiter. Each guest is served individually.

HORS D’ OEUVRES: (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer typically served before a meal; food that precedes the mai…

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}
1. Trim the guest list: the fewer guests--the fewer tables--the fewer centerpieces, the fewer expenses
2. Choose a gorgeous setting: this cuts down on the cost of decorations
3. Use a reception site that is already equipped with tables, chairs, flatware, and staff: save on delivery fees
4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.
7. Eliminate the champagne toast: guests can raise their punch, water, or tea in your honor
8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…
