Association of Bridal Consultants Annual Convention

I spoke and attended the Association of Bridal Consultants convention in November. I love attending seminars because they give me wonderful, creative ideas. Even better, it helps me recharge and get excited about my job. This year, one of the luncheons was dedicated to finding balance as a wedding planner. Mary Dann, a wedding planner […] Read more…

Echo Boomer Brides

Wow! October flew by. I traveled for most of the month. I spoke in Colorado, then in Indianapolis for the International Special Events Society and then I went to Las Vegas for a few days.

Green Weddings

I have had the most amazing week in Colorado. What a gorgeous place to get married! I was here to speak to the wedding professionals who advertise in The Perfect Wedding Guide in Boulder.

Getting the Best Fit for Your Wedding Gown

I went on yet another fitting with a bride this weekend. She too had lost a bunch of weight — twenty-five pounds… what an amazing feat!

To have or have not is the usual question regarding children at wedding receptions. Personally, as the mother of three, I love having a dressy night out without having to worry about what my children are doing, but not all parents feel the same way. Here are some tips to entertaining young children at the […] Read more…

The Importance of Wedding Budgets

I have been working on a really spectacular event. It is one of the more expensive ones in my career. But even with all the money they are spending, they are stressing out over the event budget. I should go back a bit on this story. I was hired on this event after several of […] Read more…

Avoid Bridal Attire Malfunctions

I got to be a guest! Okay, I wasn’t at a wedding. I was actually at the Bohemian Ball, a fund raiser for Hospice. We in the wedding industry here in Orlando lost a very close friend this year to pancreatic cancer. Jonathan Panzuck was one of the most talented floral designers I have ever […] Read more…

Cruise Weddings & Group Honeymoons

I just returned from my annual family vacation. Every year my entire family, mom, brothers, sisters-in-law, my kids and I take a cruise. This has been going on for more than twelve years. During that time, I have noticed more and more brides and grooms aboard the cruise ships. It is really fascinating. I personally […] Read more…
