Friday, April 01, 2016

Good morning y'all it's Friday and the first day of Spring Break! Yup, that's right time to break out my wine with my eggs and toast (hahaha, jokes). Anyway, if you know me then you guys know I love cake! One of my favorite tasks as a full service wedding planner is attending the cake tastings! My absolute favorite cake in the world is red velvet, hold the nuts! Oh my gosh, my granny made the most moist and delicious red velvet cakes ever.  Trust me I've tried a few in my day and hers by far were the best.  Red velvet was her specialty.

Monday, March 21, 2016

It's Monday and I couldn't be any happier! I know some of you are like what? Why? Well, Monday is the beginning of the work week for me and it signifies new beginnings and a fresh start.  Who wouldn't like to just hit the reset button each week.Anyway, I wanted to have a little "stationer chat" with you today.  Most days I'm wearing my planner hat, but today I wanted to talk to you guys about some of the chatter I've been hearing from different people. Some in the wedding industry and some who aren't.  What I get asked a lot is "why would anyone spend so much money on invitations? IT'S JUST PAPER!"  Well my answer to that is "It's NOT just paper! It's an experience!"  Here let me explain. It's Not Just Paper! It's An Experience | Stationer ChatPhoto Credit I'd like to think that you really cannot put a price tag on the happiest day or event of your life.  Creating a moment that two people and two families come together as one. However, before you can get to "I do" there are some steps that you have to take to get there.  One of those major steps, if you're planning to have witnesses is letting people know about your big day.  Of course there are several ways of communicating this news to your friends and family: word of mouth, emails, phone call, but my favorite and the most common and traditional way is sending a formal ...

Someone has to take on the role of super mom, wife, and business owner (insert giggles here)!! Anyway let's just jump right on in to business, shall we! As a wedding planner here in Atlanta I've heard time and time again from brides that I've worked with and from other industry professionals that brides have been told by another family member or a friend who might have been an experienced bride before, "girl you don't need a wedding planner, I can help you.." Let me backpedal for a second. When I say experienced I don't mean a bride who has been recently married, I mean the one who has done it a few times.  I mean let's be real, nothing against an experienced bride, you all know you've been told this before.  Well I'm here to tell you that I think you do need a wedding planner and here's why.    The Value Of A Wedding Planner | 4 Reasons Why You Need One   Photo Credit For most of you reading this- this will be your first trip down the aisle, so CONGRATULATIONS!
