My First Blog Entry!

I'm pretty excited to FINALLY be creating a blog......something I've known I needed to do for a long time! Now that the snow has melted a little and the school buses are running, my oldest son is in kindergarten, my youngest is napping and I have a little time to post!

I was thrilled to hear that one of my couples, Lara and Dan Berkemeyer are a featured wedding in the Winter 2009 edition of The Knot. Check it out if you can! Their guests walked into a winter wonderland of white.......white hydrangeas, roses and icicles hanging from centerpiece arrangements done by Kevin Ford of Ford Ellington Florist, not to mention a beautiful white cake decked out in snowflakes. They had a perfect day and the weather actually cooperated with them too! Everyone was somewhat comfortable during the outdoor shots while in the middle of January. Crazy Cincinnati weather we have here.

There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing.

A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

Answers to Brides Most Frequently Asked Questions

Here we are....Day 6, our final day of answering your most frequently asked questions here are answers to questions 9 and 10! Question 9: When Do We Mail the Invitations.    Traditionally speaking, wedding invitations should be mailed out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If you get anxious and mail them 10-12 weeks prior to the wedding, you might be taking a chance with your guests seeing they have plenty of time to respond and put the invitation down with intentions of RSVPing later and then they forget. Only with destination weddings should you mail your invitations 3 months out. Make sure your RSVP date is one month prior to the wedding, allowing you time to call folks who haven't rsvp'd. Part 2: Do We Need to Note the Dress Code on the Invitations?  In many cases your invitation style will depict to your guests how formal your ceremony will be.
