Great Vendor Endorsements

One of the best ways to find reputable vendors is through other vendors. It is much easier for us when we are working with competent vendors and our clients are happy, so when we recommend others, we make sure we are confident in their abilities. It's so flattering when other vendors recommend us to others. We just received this wonderful endorsement from the wedding officiants at "A Perfect Witness". Check it out!

"Planners come and go, but a few really break through the "ordinary" barrier and make a lasting statement . They devote themselves personally to every wedding. big or small. Our view as officiants is narrowly focused on the ceremony. A good planner makes our job easier and results better by a willingness to share thoughts about a client. Collaboration makes everything work better. Professional communication becomes critical, and working always for the client is the first esential ingedient. Flawless Occasions is all of that, and delightful personalities as well. There are only a few planners I always enjoy working with, and Flawless Occasions is one." Thank you so much to A Perfect Witness for this great endorsement. We love working with you as well. To see more of our vendor endorsements, click here!

Cutting out the Clutter of Wedding "Stuff"

Do you have a box in your house holding a bunch of wedding "stuff"? We often have brides give us a box of random items to set up for the wedding without any specific designation of where it should go or how they would like it used. Many brides are guilty of this... you're out shopping at the mall and you see a cute candle set or a bridal figurine or a bunch of lace heart ornaments and you say "hey, maybe I could use that for the wedding somehow...". So you buy it, bring it home, and it goes into your box of wedding "stuff" for the next 6 months to collect dust until the big day.

Here are some questions to ask yourself prior to purchasing items for your wedding.

1. What do I want to do with this item?

2. Does it match the colors/theme/style of my wedding?

3. Have I already purchased similar items?

4. Am I buying this because I love it, or because it is a good deal?

Don't buy something unless you can think of an exact way to utilize it at your wedding. It might be cute, but will it fit in with the rest of your decor or will it become clutter on a table somewhere? If you can't think of a significant use for it in your wedding, you probably shouldn't buy it.

Not only will this save you money by keeping you from purchasing a bunch of stuff you won't need, but it will relieve you of the stress in trying to come up with some type of use for all of the crazy items in your wedding box o' junk.

Happy Planning! :)

More Dana and Jeff !

Last month I coordinated the wedding of Dana and Jeff at the beautiful Reunion Resort (which is very close to Disney for those of you who are unfamiliar with the area). I just wanted to share a few pro photos from photographer Gary Kaplan. Dana's wedding gown was one of my all-time favorites, she looked amazing! Enjoy!
