Country Chic

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

From Zoo Weddings (7/18 entry) to country weddings, it must seem like I have city slickers syndrome. Maybe I am projecting my need for a get back to nature vacation on to my job. I look at wedding magazines all day and I see photographs of outdoor weddings on a ...

5 Star Engagement

Monday, August 6th, 2007

I got the call and on the other end of the line was my friend…trying to be casual but clearly ecstatic with news that she’s engaged! I’ve been getting a lot of these calls lately. Of course I ask, “how did he pop the question?!” It happened at Gary Danko ...

A Taste of the Wild

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

I’ve loved visiting the zoo since I was a kid. I love animals and when I was little I wanted to be a trainer to one of those animal actors like Bart the Bear (he’s in like every movie that features a bear). When I went to Las Vegas, I ...

Lucky in Love?

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

It’s the Fourth of July. I just baked a blueberry pie and am getting ready to head to a friend’s barbeque. But an estimated 37,000 couples will not have the luxury of celebrating the Fourth this year with a leisurely BBQ and watching fireworks. This Saturday will be 7/7/07, the ...

Dress Shopping

Monday, June 18th, 2007

On Saturday I accompanied my newly engaged girl friend to a couple of bridal boutiques in San Francisco to try on wedding gowns. We quickly narrowed the shape down to strapless modified A-line because of her petite frame. But when faced with choices for fabric, colors, embellishments, neckline and bodice ...

Interactive Colors

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Saturday afternoon, Memorial weekend, I decided to visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. There I came across some paintings by abstract artist Josef Albers from a series he called Homage to the Square. The paintings are simple…just concentric squares in brilliant mono-chromatic or contrasting colors. I love minimalist ...

This inquiry came from one of our readers: Q: I will be widow/mother-of-brideand will walk my daughter down the aisle.Do you have any ideas about this and also the dance with her at the reception? This situation is so common place and yet not much is written or discussed about the ...

Help! Managing a Guest List

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Managing your guest list can be the trickiest part of wedding planning. The number of guests you have will affect the size and type of venue and of course the cost. First you must figure out how many people your budget will allow. If you are like me, you might ...

Help! Where do I start?

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Now that you have had a few weeks to bask in the glory of your recent engagement, it is time to start making some plans. When you start to think about the seemingly countless decisions that lie ahead, you might feel overwhelmed. You are not alone. We get emails from ...

A Family Affair

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

More happy news.  My cousin got engaged on New Year's Eve! Just like Amy's family (see previous entry), my family is very close. There are over 40 members in my extended family and we behave like immediate family. So when my cousin called to share the news, those of us ...
