Summer of Love!

August and September 2015


Thankfully, I have 2 weddings to coordinate this summer. I will have the honor of being present at the union of Mr. and Mrs. (to be) Smith and Mr. and Mrs. (to be) Hawkins!


Coordinating a wedding sounds super fun but it is a lot of work! Timelines, places, contracts, hot meals (not luke warm), vendor placement, and contingency plans....just to name a few of the items that I handle. All of that is the "behind the scenes" work that make the "in front of the scenes" look nice.

I also help clients with proper wedding etiquette. For example, never post registry information in your wedding invitation. You are requesting the company of your guests, which is why you invited them in the first place, not gifts. If you receive gifts, be sure to send handwritten thank you notes. 

Guest RSVP is a service that I provide for my clients to relieve them of the duty of keeping count of who is attending and who is not. Tip: when handing out invitations, keep a list of who received one. Organization is key.

Unorganized records will also cost you money. For example, too many guests may mean extra food (added expense). Unconfirmed guests who attend may cause you additional money based on the capacity agreement between you and the venue.

Do not be afraid to ask for help. Wedding planners are in your corner. We want the best for you!

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.

The Attendants

http://www.zazzleweddings.com/Be-My-Bridesmaid.php   Your Attendants, or as they are commonly referred to as your Wedding Party, can be as large or as small as you like. Choosing your attendants may seem like a no brainer in the beginning. He pops the question, you say YES, you call everyone you know, and the next thing you know--you have 8 Bridesmaids! How did that happen?? It happened because your friends/family said, "I'm going to be in your wedding, right?" and you said, "of course!" It was not until three days later that you have realized how many people you invited into your wedding party. It is quite common to feel obligated to have certain people in your wedding (even if you are not close to them). However, it is your (and his) day so you should surround yourselves with people who are supportive, loving, and genuinely happy for you. Some of those described may be friends instead of family and that is okay. Choosing Your Wedding Party Think a
