Love for the Holidays

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

Today feels like the last day of school. Everyone is eager to start celebrating the holidays! As it is with every winter season, couples all over get swept up in the magic of the holidays and before they ring in the new year, there's a ring on her finger! We ...

Wish Tree 2

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

Okay, wedding is over. And it was another success! The necklaces looked great on the girls and the wish tree was a big hit. Some highlights: The church. Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley, CA. The back of the sanctuary is a glass wall facing a redwood forest. It's tranquil and ...

Details and such

Monday, October 9th, 2006

A few entries back, I talked about making jewelry and designing a "wish tree" for my friend's wedding. Both super fun projects! That wedding is this weekend, so it's now time to pull it all together. Just to keep you posted, we decided to go with neutral colors for the ...

Wish tree

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

I've been tapped by the bride-to-be to come up with the wish tree. This is a semi-traditional practice where guests are given the opportunity to write down advice for the newly married couple. I have a few ways I can go. The simple way would be to find a big ...

Bead it!

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

I think I've discovered a new hobby. A few months ago at a bridal shower (for the girl who married the firefighting salsa dancer - see 8/13 entry) I met one of the bride's good friends who had offered to make necklaces for all of the bridesmaids. She was wearing ...

Bridesmaids unite

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

BM night kicked off with hair and makeup while munching on cookies and crackers and watching soap operas. At my age (late 20’s) summer plans tend to revolve around weddings. Whether it is attending one, traveling to one or being in one, it seems like they come one after another. ...

An Amazing Display of Talent and a Couple Truly Meant to Be

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

I’m always encouraging couples to find ways to infuse personality into their weddings and claiming that the best weddings are the ones in which you get a sense of who the bride and groom are both as individuals and as a couple. Well, this summer I went to a wedding ...

Guys and wedding planning

Sunday, July 9th, 2006

Does it seem like your guy is just not that interested in the wedding?  I know this isn’t exactly a newsflash, but men don’t care about having the perfect wedding as much as women do.  There are of course exceptions to both parts of that statement...but in general, I think ...

Grace under pressure

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

After a long hiatus from the blog, taken to focus on moving among other things, I am back with wedding ideas, stories and hopefully helpful advice to all you brides-to-be as well as friends and family.  We are really blessed as people in the wedding industry to be able to ...

Wedding gift-giving 101

Monday, April 17th, 2006

One of the most frequent questions I receive from friends, family and clients is how much one is expected to spend on a wedding gift. I guess it can be difficult to determine, with various options and so many rules of etiquette. First of all, whenever you are invited to ...
