Choosing the Day

The Grande Finale of the wedding week is the rehearsal and dinner, I have researched what the experts are saying about this special occasion and I am bringing forth some very interesting ideas to you.
Choosing the day of the week, the typical day of the week for Christian weddings is held on Saturday. So the typical wedding rehearsal is held on Friday the day before. I have experienced where if the timing isn't planned exactly right, the choice of Friday could throw a cramp in many plans for the wedding "party". This year I have had several clients ask if it would be alright to have their rehearsal on a Thursday, I say that is GREAT! Thursday rehearsals allow for a late night bachelorette/bachelor party or even a bridal shower for the bride along with her out-of town guests. It also gives the bride and groom the opportunity to plan a really fun rehearsal dinner (ideas coming soon) for everyone involved. Then take Friday to do all the last minute errands and to rest and relax before the big day.

If you have a planner , don't worry about who will forget their parts in the ceremony, your planner will make sure everyone knows where to go and what to do.

Happy Planning



This week I have decided to take some time off, but before I do I want to leave you with a few ideas for planning a fabulous rehearsal dinner. Each day I will have a blog sent to you regarding fabulous ideas for the most important guests at your wedding. This is the time when you get to say thank you, and express how much their support and love has meant to the both of you, so make it special and plan this day the way you would any other special event.

Happy Planning Ladies

Never Judge a Vendor by a Phone Call !!!!!

I met a vendor today for the first time(well second actually, but the first doesn't count we were working) we sat down for a cup of conversation because we never got to the coffee, she was absolutely amazing to talk to, I was not sure what to think of her from our phone conversations, they mainly pertained to work and the pitfalls, and triumphs of being in the special event industry, but today I was introduced to a smart, witty, driven, young woman who definitely knows what she wants and how she wants it....her no nonsense way of relating and her new jersey girl swagger was refreshing and mesmerizing at the same time. To say the least her presentation could be polished but even that had a slight charm that you usually don't find in this industry. To say I was impressed isn't saying enough, I hope you all will have the pleasure of meeting and enjoying the company of Ms. Trish Epps of Pure Dymonds Events, leave all your preconceived notions at the door, and just flow with her, she will definitely take you on a journey that will leave you looking forward to the next trip.....You do your thang girl!!! I look forward to doing business with you and developing a friendship as well. Thanks for your time.

New Marketing Trend

If you are not on Skype, you are missing an important method of getting your message out to your clients. Skype is a FREE video conferencing service that enables you to connect with people on a more intimate letter than just email. If you have potential clients that you want to have that oh so important meeting with, but your schedules are colliding, go Skype, log on, invite them in schedule the time and voila you are conducting a professional face-to-face meeting and you are able to conduct business as usual, if you need forms signed, face them to your contact and there you have it, an easy inexpensive way of faxing is efax. I have been efaxing for about 3-4 yrs now and I have saved a bundle of money. I hope these FREE marketing tips will serve you well. Get inventive and be sure to let me know the many ways you have used Skype, so I may pass it on !

It's August ladies get to work!!!!!
