I'm looking for ideas others have for gaining new business. A lot of inquiries coming our way, but I have found personally and from several other vendors (not just planners) that after the intial inquiry there is not much more from the customers.
I'm finding the free sites or those with link exchange to be invaluable. I do pay for advertising, but being a 'young' business cannot do it on all. Word of mouth is key too so I believe reputation is very important.
How do you… Continue

One of the things I love about planning weddings is the religious and ethnic diversity of bridal couples and their families. The different traditions and religious elements of the ceremony are fascinating to me and meaningful to the couple.
In this post, I am going to share some information about Eastern Orthodox ceremonies. I had the privilege of working with a wonderful couple that married in one of the Greek Orthodox Churches in the Phoenix area. As I worked with them, I learned… Continue

Imagine taking your walk down the aisle with the brilliant sun setting against a backdrop of Arizona Mountains. As you reach the spot where your groom happily awaits, the stars come out and overhead is a beautiful night sky. All eyes are on the bridal party, spotlighted with soft pink light. When the ceremony ends, the sun begins to rise and you recess up the aisle with the beautiful colors of an Arizona sunrise surrounding you and you are not outdoors! All this is possible in the Planetarium… Continue

It’s a great big, diverse world!! I love learning about the different ways that couples exchange their marriage vows. Today I want to share some of what I’ve learned about the religious customs and traditions of Jewish weddings.
Judaism is divided into three basic groups; Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. The ceremony differs when customs are from an Eastern European or Middle Eastern background, and the type of Judaism that is practiced. With all the differences, Jewish weddings… Continue

My husband and I have traveled much of the great Navajo reservation. From Antelope Canyon to Monument Valley, Canyon De Chelly to Santa Fe, the people and the landscape are amazing! As a wedding planner, I wanted to learn and share more about the wedding traditions of the Navajo people.
The Navajo wedding ceremony is a ritual that has been practiced by the Navajos for centuries. The ceremony is conducted by a respected elder of the bride or by a medicine person. The families of the… Continue

What will you do with the food that is leftover from your wedding reception? Did you know that almost 50,000 children go to bed hungry each night in Maricopa County alone? Did you know that here in the Phoenix area there is a great agency that will collect your leftovers and deliver them to your choice of over 80 local agencies that feed the hungry?
That organization is called Waste Not. Their vision is for a community where wasted food is a thing of the past and no request for food… Continue

Glancing over the lush green field to see the sunset was amazingly beautiful. That was my very first impression of Gore Place, an ornate Federalist style mansion plunked down on 4o rolling acres. Really. I was stunned that such a fantasy wedding site was literally right off Route 20 in Waltham. I knew the first Bridal Tweet Meet up was off to a roaring good start!
You probably guessed that I'm the curious type. My favorite thing is to meet someone new and learn about them. I've… Continue

Also known as bomboniere
, Italian wedding favours are traditionally little bags or boxes with small gifts inside of them. The gift can be anything at all, but tradition dictates that there should also be either three or five confetti
, known in the English speaking world as Jordan Almonds.
These sweets represent the supposed "bittersweet" nature of marriage, and must always come in odd numbers for good luck, as this represents the indivisibility of the union between the… Continue

Is there anything more personal than wedding planning? As wedding professionals we help mold the bride's dreams into one extraordinary day. It's not an arms-length process. We get real close. Which is why inserting a something as off-putting as a legal contract might seem unnecessary or unpleasant to some folks. Several discussions on different wedding forums are about the need for a contract. I thought we could take a look at it together. Are contracts necessary?
I look at it… Continue

A wedding centerpiece
is the most important part of any wedding. Your guests will spend the majority of their time sitting at the table and because of this they will spend a lot of time looking at the centerpiece. Therefore you want to take the time to make a wedding centerpiece that they will enjoy and that you can be proud of.
