Being a wedding planner in Scottsdale, AZ, we often service couples from all over the country and world. Scottsdale always makes the top ten wedding destination location list because of it’s unique desert landscape, incredible mountain views, and very comfortable weather for about 9 months out of the year. We love working with couples from out of town, when they are planning their weddings out here, but we also really love when we get to work in other parts of the country and world as destination wedding planners. Recently we coordinated and designed a wedding in Hawaii and we have been dying to tell you all about it!
The highlight of our week at NYBFW was hands down, the Muse by Berta private viewing. To set the scene, right when we walked in, we were met with a glass of champagne. If anyone knows us, they know champagne is basically our sparkling water. The viewing was on a high-rise rooftop garden. It was literally straight from a dream. Picture cobblestone bricks, florals, greenery, and breathtaking gowns right in the heart of New York City. The setting went perfectly with the theme–a Sicilian love story.
So far we’ve recapped our shows at Maria Farbinni and Theia. Next up is Anne Barge’s Fall 2018 collection. On day two, we attended the Anne Barge show. The Anne Barge Fall 2018 collection is an interpretation of nature’s midnight garden. An escape into fanciful garden that inspires all things feminine – a delicate tracery of ribbons and bows, a whisper of pink, dreamy layers of floral lace.
It was all a DREAM….hopefully you are all singing the rest of this Biggie verse because we still are! LOL!! But, seriously, the event we are going to talk about was nothing but an absolute DREAM and we want to recap how this event came to be in Scottsdale, AZ so that you all know what it took to produce such amazingness.
Most of the time when we are hired to plan a couple’s wedding, they have an idea of what they want their wedding to look like. Sometimes, these idea’s are super specific, with awesome Pinterest boards that have most definitely been in the works longer than the engagement (it’s ok, we’ll never tell), and other times, we just get a couple great inspo pics and maybe some color swatches to kick things off. Either way, whatever our couples start with, we are always excited to start on a new wedding design project.
When it comes to weddings, guests will travel near and far to celebrate the people they love. What better way to show your appreciation for all of their travels than by having a little welcome gift all wrapped up and awaiting their arrival! If you want to have a killer bag your guests will love, follow these guidelines and there’s no way they’ll be anything less than fabulous!
You’re engaged. Now what? Create a wedding Pinterest board, duh! I mean how else are you going to keep this wedding thing organized? Ok, so you head over to Pinterest, but now what? How many boards should you have? Should you invite people to your boards? Should your board be public or private? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
We received a phone call from a wonderful couple, who’s names are Lily and Brian, about eight months prior to their wedding date. They lived in California and were planning a destination wedding in Scottsdale, AZ at the Phoenician Resort. Instinctually, they knew they needed a wedding planner to alleviate some of their wedding planning stress that all couples get, especially when planning from afar. I had a great time speaking with them and learning what they had in mind for their wedding. They were extremely organized and had an incredibly detailed and accurate budget created right from the beginning. As a wedding planner, I can not stress enough how important it is to create a budget or have your wedding planner create a budget for your wedding very early on. This helps every couple stay on track and allows the bride and groom to make smart choices for what they really need/want on their wedding day. This also helps determine guest count and how many people you are able to invite to your wedding with out going over budget.
