What should a couple prepare before meeting with their planner for the first time

Before meeting with your event planner its great to have a few answers ready to some very important questions.

The following is a great beginners list:

1. Where is the location of your wedding? If you do not have a location in mind what are 3 elements that you need your venue to have (i.e. should it be urban, have water elements, stone/brick, two-story windows, greenery, etc.)

2. How many guests will you be inviting?

3. What is your on day budget? (this will be the most important question) – your planner will help you balance out your budget and which vendors & their quality will be best within your budgetary requirements.

4. What services will you need? Although there are similarities with each wedding, there are definite differences and your planner will be able to highlight your unique attributes to make your day shine.

5. What suppliers will you want to hire? This is great in the way it goes hand in hand with the services you need. We once had a couple needing a DDR machine and that was very important to them. Not every couple will want a DDR machine.

6. What are your special requirements for your wedding venue?

7. Do you have guests with any food or dietary restrictions any allergies?

8. What is your color palette? Start with 2-3 colors and then you can choose a couple others as your accents.

9. What would you like to have as a theme?

10. What is your favorite flower? What flowers are you allergic too?

11. What are your visions of the day?

Some other important questions are:   How do you want to feel on the day of your wedding? How do you want your guests to feel? What are three important moments you do not want to miss on your wedding day?

Festival of Lights – Celebrating Hanukkah

Celebrating the miracle of the Festival of Lights is a great time to reconnect with family and remember the history of the re-dedication of the Holy Temple of Jerusalem. Creating the perfect Tablescape for your family to enjoy can at times be daunting as there are so many fantastic options. Here we have taken a more modern glittery approach on this wonderful holiday and hope you enjoy!

Creating the table from the base up, we started with the beautiful glittering linen ASTRO by BBJ Linen and coupled it with both Peacock Blue Faille and Graphite Velvet napkins. Settings were paired with handsome blue antique goblets, silver Murano stemware, onyx flatware and glass bead chargers by Hall’s Rental topped with white orchids from Kensington. Fashioning our own version of a Menorah with crystal candleholders, glass cylinders and floating candles illuminates a more modern look to this wonderful tradition.

    

    

As stories of the Maccabees are shared and traditional dishes of latkes, loukoumades and sufganiyot are passed to each guest, enjoy this dazzling Tablescape that radiates all the splendor that this holiday season has to offer!
