Wedding Planning 101 Presentation

I can’t believe that summer is just about over, the kids are all going back to school, the weather is changing and before I know it, I’ll be shopping for Christmas presents. I’ll be honest, I’m looking forward to the fall since it’s my favorite time of the year! I’m a huge fan of scarecrows, pumpkins and those dark, rich colors! Perfect color combinations for weddings!

Anyway, I’ve been a busy little bee here and have been slacking with my blog postings….do forgive me! Here’s a little bit of what I was doing….

Last week, I was a guest speaker at Deja Veil Boutique for a Wedding Planning 101 roundtable discussion with brides to be! We had such a fabulous evening chatting away about their upcoming weddings. We discussed tips on how to bring their ideas together; making they’re wedding uniquely theirs, choosing the right vendors & timelines. We even helped a bride set her date!

Deja Veil wanted to create a place where brides could be comfortable and have the opportunity to pick the brain of a planner, as well as, talking to other brides. I wanted to create a tablescape to give the girls some inspiration on how to tie their personality into they’re wedding. We ran into a little snafu with our original idea, so we had to improvise and decided to use items that Deja Veil had in store and some things I had on hand. 🙂

Thanks to Creative Flowers & Gifts for providing an amazing centerpiece!

Here are some of the fabulous door prizes that we’re given away:

A fabulous hand-painted tote from Just Me….

…and inside was a pretty hand-painted wine glass from Glasses by Danni…. 

Than, we had this beauty… And, what girl doesn’t like a pretty clutch bag?! This is a hand sewn (talented girl, I must say!) clutch bag from the fabulous Sew Sarah R. She can customize any size, shape or look you want!

I wanted to keep it for myself, but I was a good girl and it gave it away to a lucky bride!

Check out what Deja Veil crafted up with their new vinyl machine ….

….and so much more from other local vendors!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the event! We’re looking forward to the next one they have planned!

Handpainted Glasses by Danni

Happy Monday!

I hope all the Dad’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day yesterday, I know I sure did with my dad & awesome father in law!

Anyway, on to some of the exciting things I want to share with you. Who doesn’t love something handmade or hand painted? I certainly do, since I can’t draw or paint to save my life! I have no problem admitting that I’m envious of the people who can do either.

So, when my friend/old job contact, Jocelyn told me about her sister in law, Danielle, I knew I had to meet her. After the virtual intro, I set up a meeting with Danielle to discuss how we can work together to get her talents into the wedding world. We met at my favorite Massachusetts/New Hampshire Starbucks to chat. After chatting & enjoying a yummy Double Chocolate Chip frappuccino, I decided to have her make me a few different types of glasses. That way, when my clients are looking for unique, personalized gifts, so I can immediately show these beauties to them.

What I forgot was, I had her make me a wine glass with my logo on it….

She literally captured all the details of my logo! I was beyond excited when I saw it and I can’t wait to have my first glass of wine in it! 🙂

Sorry, was so excited about it, that I couldn’t wait to share it! Now, check out the others she created…

Of course, I had to have her create one for my other favorite kind of cocktail…

And, I couldn’t forget about those handsome guys & beer drinkers….

Isn’t her talent amazing! Want her to create something beautiful for you’re wedding? Send her an email here to get something unique made! Just don’t forget to tell her I sent you!
~Cheers!
