·         Be prepared. First off, you should be prepared before sitting down and writing your “thank you” notes. It will be much easier when you open your gifts if you have a notebook, this way, you can write down the guest and the gift that they provided, so that you never lose track of what you received and from whom. When writing your “thank you” notes, it is always ideal to personally thank the guest by including the gift within your writing, as this adds personalization and shows that you truly appreciate it.
·         Take your time. Most likely, you will have many “thank you” notes to write, so do expect that this should take a great deal of time. If you are personally writing each guest a lovely note, which should be the case, you will want to show them your appreciation with your words. Don’t rush your notes! After all, you didn’t rush your wedding, did you? Also, it is even more special if both you and your partner each write a little note within the card.
·         What to write. For some, writing comes naturally. However, for others, writing can be a bit trickier. When it comes to your wedding “thank you” notes though, you won’t be graded on your sentences, but it is still great to write them with proper etiquette. When writing your notes, an easy guide to follow is to first, thank the guest for the specific gift that was received. Second, explain to the guest on how you plan to use the gift. Last, always be sure to thank your guest for attending your big day.

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

So, when you begin visiting venues and you learn that a venue has an event coordinator who tells you that you do not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner, ask them if they will show up at the hotel while you and your girls are getting ready earlier in the day. Ask if they will be with you …

Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them!

I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama!

In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!
