This is the dress!!


Over the years I have realized how difficult it is for brides to decide on the dress that speaks to them, makes them cry or just the one that fits perfectly. I realized choosing a dress is not easy and more difficult when the bride decides to take her bridal party with her to look around, all because not everyone has the same taste.

But when it comes to the bride herself, how do you choose your dress? How many dresses have you tried before you say “this is the dress”?

 You can answer my question by posting your comments below. I would love to hear from you, and what has been your most dramatic moment while choosing the dress?


New meeting today


Here I am dragging myself to get things set for an afternoon meeting. My body aches, and to imagine my pain of taking things to my office, yes you heard right, I havent taken anything to my office, I got held by the vacation week.
Today I will be meeting with a new bride, a 2013 bride. I will be meeting with her at a coffee location because I have nothing in my office.

I will be posting updates if she hires my services. I am excited and will be pretty busy  I will be joining professionals and other vendors at the Fall New England Bridal Show, so this is something I am always looking foward to. Its a great experience to meet and greet the brides, the smiles and joy in their faces. I will be contacting my vendors and see if they want to provide samples, I usuallu provide the brides my preffered vendors list instantly if they book us on the show.
So this is it for now, I need to finalize some papers for my meeting. Hasta luego.

You do not have to become a “Bridezilla”, part 2


As I mentioned on my first article about “Bridezilla’s”, brides just reach this extent because they are really, really stressed, and this is so normal.
But at what extent does she become this bitter, angry, outburst, screaming bride?, someone totally different before the wedding plans began?. This is a question which has everyone moving heads back and forth.

Why does it become a drama?, why does it become a dilemma?, is the true definition of “Bridezilla” the one we see in the tv show “Bridezilla”, on WE tv? Or is it a little less?. Not all brides are zillas, and this is one reason I am against the word at its all. Moments of anger, stress, confussions, will become part of any event planning, (trust me…as a wedding planner you see a side of me it may seem intimidating but at the end you see what you pay me for),.

I will find myself constantly writing about brides, because this is an issue you see over and over, some are sweet, some are understanding, some are just plain rude, but look at them all, deep down these brides are just nervous, excited and eager to walk that ile and say “I do”.

While searching around as to what does the word “bridezilla” really means I found this quite interesting meaning, bridezilla comes from dificult bride, combined with godzilla, ok as always this is the same definition I am seeing everywhere. I have read brides say how they are not happy with the constant labeling of this word.

Not because a bride cries, flips out, becomes stress, worries or even become anxious is a bridezilla, and I can bet on anything many brides to be agree with me on this one. Brides are also consern this word is thrown around a lot to describe them but it does not mean its accurate.

Bridezilla or not, I love brides, they look beautiful, they shine, they are truly blessed to marry the man of their dreams.

I will go ahead and keep researching information as to what and why will a bride change to such a drastic emotion, understanding she is overly nervous and really wants everything for her wedding to be perfect, and hey…who ever said their is not a groomzilla out there, guys are normal too and they too are organized as well.

You bride reading this…what is the limit where a bride shall be labeled “bridezilla?”

Anyone can have a Candy Buffet,..

Who ever said candies were only for kids,.. I think in any and every event there should be a “Candy Buffet”, all sorts of style, colors, sizes and taste. It gives not only an additional place for guests to visit besides their tables to eat, share and conversate with each other, but also a place to remember that special event. I love candies, and I love the feeling of serving myself.

David Tutera Wedding Collection – Candy Buffet Scoop Set (Set of 4 Scoops)

Using scoops per place can make the buffet more classy, and also placing a scoop in each box as a favor would also give the guest something to keep and remember. You can also place a nice colored ribbon on each scoop, using the same colors as the candies.

I really admire all the things David Tutera has done for Brides around the world, and how he devotes himself for them. being able to see such human being bring so much to the Wedding Industry has really made a huge difference in how weddings must and will be seen. A wedding now is  not only a once in a lifetime moment but a journey to remember for the rest of your life, how you begin your wedding and are wedded, is how your journey begins.

The candy buffet I will be creating for my June Bride will be Chocolate & Turquoise colors, I will be posting pictures of how it all went. For now just enjoy Davids Wedding Collection and more to come, I have seen many so far in JoAnns Fabric and I must say David has awesome taste, he knows what we like and what we want to see in an Event.

Destination Weddings


You must determine immediately whether or not you will be having a destination wedding. A growing number of engaged couples look to combine their wedding with their honeymoon or jet to an enticing location to elope. It can conceivably cost less to get married in this maner than to hold a full-scale wedding ceremony and reception, and if you have budget concerns, this may be an option worth pursuing.

If you do choose a destination wedding, it is likely that some of your loved ones will be unable to attend on such short notice. Also, you need to be sensitive to their financial situations, since it is costly to attend a destination wedding. However, if you decide to go ahead with this sort of wedding, it is possible to stream video footage of the ceremony live over the Internet.
