Wedding Industry Predictions for 2015

1. Bridal hair crowns will be big for 2015.  “They offer a good mix between traditional and modern while still leaving the bride with a variety of hair styling options.  This trend was seen on bridal runways but was very prominent with the designers Ivy and Aster for their 2015 Fall/Autumn bridal runway shows.”

 2.  Metallics including copper will be on the rise.  “2015 will see metallic shades in a lot of Wedding themes, not just gold, silver but copper, brass and a mix of metals. Although gold can have a very rustic element to it, using copper accents really supports and enhances the vintage aspect of the over all theme. Copper in elements such as invitation fonts, centerpieces, table settings and silverware adds the classic touch to the sentimental, vintage wedding theme trend.”

Why you should hire a wedding planner

Summer Outdoor Wedding

When couples decide to get married one of the first questions that come up is how much are they going to spend, what will they spend it on and whether they need a WEDDING PLANNER. Couples often think that they will save money when they do it themselves but this is far from the truth. Below are some of the reasons a wedding planner is not only a fantastic resource which will make life so much easier for the couple and family but also helpful to keep the budget on track and ensure you thought of everything. Most of all you will be able to enjoy the wedding day while leaving the details to someone else! Here are the top 5 reasons to hire a planner.

 1) Stress – A planner takes on the stress so you don’t have to.

5 Quick Wedding Tips….

Table Setting

Here are some quick but important tips if you are planning your wedding.

1. You should like all of your vendors but  you should LOVE your photographer and wedding planner as these two see you in some rather delicate circumstances (both physical and emotional) and you should feel completely comfortable.

2. If you start to get overwhelmed with the design of your wedding, stop reading the blogs. Yes, the eye candy is pretty, but there is such thing as too much of a good thing!

3. Be careful not to say or do anything you’ll regret after the wedding and the dust has settled. Some of these little details are truly, truly mole hills, not mountains. I promise.

A little of this and a little of that…. event planning tips, recipes, how to’s and more….

Summer 2014
Summer Wedding at the Adamson House

A few years ago I decided it was time for a change… I wanted a new career, reinvent myself and all those cliches… – I wanted to do what I loved every day and help people have a great experience when they celebrate personal milestones and especially weddings.

This all began when I started making lunch weekly for my local community and I suddenly realized that I can actually cook really well and after a while people started to ask me to cook for there events and were willing to pay me quite well! Who knew! This evolved into a catering business and THAT evolved into Wedding and Event Planning! I have done event planning for many years but more the corporate and non-profit/fundraising kind than personal parties but I love it all. I put my creativity into action and love to brainstorm with my clients to find unusual ways to make their event unique and special.
