Wish Upon A Wedding... more

Whether you've been married one year, 10, 25 or 50 - I think if we're honest, we all love wedding season.  You can most often spot an engaged couple by the glow in their eyes or the hurried look that encompasses the bride OR the bubble over the grooms head that reads "just say yes dear"...

When I meet brides or even couples that want to renew their vows, it amazes me how dreamy their visions are.  Everyone wants "magic"... For each wedding or event  I take on, I like to include something the client isnt paying for.  That's my way of "paying it forward".  There is an organization called Wish Upon A Wedding that IMO is allowing event planning professionals the opportunity to practice the spirit of "paying it forward" in the ultimate way. 

Wish Upon A Wedding is granting wedding wishes for persons that are facing life-threatening medical conditions; celebrating the courage & spirit of these couples.  The Chicago Chapter recently had the their launch party and will grant their first wedding wish on April 18, 2010.  Read more HERE.
