Love, Laughter, and EVERYTHING in Between: Day 18- Your Bridal Party!


Not a simple task by no means! 
Choosing your bridal party can be one of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding, but it can also be one of the most stressful. I've learned that the men are relatively easy BUT with women it's likely that drama will arise at one point or another. Here is my tip:  As a bride, the best way to avoid unnecessary drama is to exclude those that create it! 
~ENJOY THE PROCESS~

Love, Laughter, and EVERYTHING in Between: Day 16-Dressing the Aisle


As unique as weddings can be, nearly every one I've been involved with has one thing in common -- the bride walks down the aisle. Whether you are having a traditional church wedding or an outdoor wedding, making the aisle look beautiful is a priority.

Love, Laughter, and EVERTHING in Between: Day 15-Down the Aisle


It's the last few moments before one of the most important days of your life and you're full of nerves. The man of your dreams is anxiously awaiting your entrance; as your planner, I am doing any final tucking and fixing your veil. The makeup artist adds just a little more lip gloss, your dress is breathtaking and your bouquet is perfectly placed.  As I hand you to your escort you'll hear me say "This is the moment you've dreamt of, breath easy, take your time and relish in the beauty of what awaits you. Thank you for allowing me into your personal space; it was an honor and I don't take it lightly.  Live life out loud and love on purpose".
