How to Get Your Partner to Be a Family Planner


Over the weekend I was reading an article on about family planning and 7 steps on how to adjust to the role.

Family planning is important and to know your partner has a clear and concise plan on where the family should head financially and personally helps to give peace of mind about your future.

wedding blog, day in the life of a bridal fashion editor

Raise your hand if your idea of a dream job is spending your days scouring through wedding magazines and websites, researching bridal fashion trends and schlepping from one fashion show, presentation and luncheon to another. Then you’d pretty much love to be Ivette Manners. She’s one half of the NYC PWG Fashion Editor duo and we’ve asked her to recount what a day is like during the busiest time of the year — New York Bridal Market. Take a look!

Saturday, April 18, 2015
New York Bridal Fashion Week is to the bridal industry as what fashion week is to the fashion industry: Same outfit planning, hair blowouts, and packed itineraries of coveted invites. And just like fashion editors who get a first look at what’s trending for the upcoming season, bridal editors are privy to what will be worn down the aisle. However, one difference is that many of the bridal shows and events feel a lot like attending actual weddings, hosted by the hottest wedding gown designers. To give you an insider’s look at what happens during bridal market, here’s a peek into one of my busiest days!

8:00 AM
I hop on the train and make my way into Manhattan from my home in Long Island.
This bridal market, previewing the spring/summer 2016 collections, we’re blessed with beautiful weather after a long brutal New York winter. The warm temperature makes it easier to trek all over the city to appointments at the sexy downtown studios, sleek showrooms, and posh hotels which make up the venues where the runway shows and presentations are held.

10:00 AM
Bridal Week technically begins mid-week, but the weekend is usually when the main events are held. After ending my Friday workday with the brilliant Jenny Packham show in the Meatpacking District, I start my Saturday morning with the Marchesa presentation at the swanky St. Regis hotel in Midtown. I grab a mimosa from a passing waiter and enter the hotel’s event space where models are posed like priceless museum pieces to allow the press and buyers to get up-close to all of the gorgeous gowns. I check out Marchesa’s latest collection of bridal jewelry, which is on display under glass; then head to The Villard Mansion for the Galia Lahav runway show with my star assistant, who is helping me report on some of the collections.
