Six Don'ts

6 DIY Don'ts.. from The Knot

Your Cake: Whether it’s a missed teaspoon of sugar or a tilted tier, a wedding cake disaster is hard to fix. Yes, it would be much less expensive to buy a few boxes of cake mix and do it yourself, but the quality in the end could be lacking. Decorating and transporting a wedding cake is quite difficult and best left to someone with the knowledge of how to handle your confection without damaging it.

Your Photos: Your photographs are one of the few tangible things you’ll have to remember your wedding. All of your loved ones may promise to capture every moment, but what happens if they get distracted or have a camera malfunction? If it’s important for you to have high-quality images and hundreds of great shots, hire a pro. You’ll be glad you did when you see your picture-perfect album.

Coordinating it Yourself: You’ve organized every minute detail so far, so why shouldn't’t you be in charge on the wedding day? Because you won’t be able to relax. Hiring a coordinator for the day can be a lifesaver. While you’re getting pampered, they’ll be setting up and averting any crisis that may occur. When everything isn’t going perfectly, you’ll be none the wiser. Trust us --

peace of mind is worth the extra expense.

Your Centerpieces: A beautiful centerpiece sets the mood of the reception. From sophisticated to fun, you can create a setup that will wow your guests -- with a florist’s help, of course! Flowers can cost upward of $3,000, depending on your taste and the season. Although it’s a larger part of the budget, it’s worth every penny. Your florist will ensure that you get exquisite displays filled with the freshest blooms.

Your Catering: Catering a large-scale party is a huge undertaking, even for a culinary whiz. You’ll be hard-pressed to get enough food together for a hundred people and keep it hot -- even if you make the best dish in town. And, once you get it made, you’ll need a reliable staff to serve it. Caterers are trained to make it happen; they have the support staff to serve you and your guests in a timely manner.

Your Music: It’s tempting to rock out to your favorite tunes, and you might think it’s easy to do so with an iPod. Not quite. You’ll be limited to the music that you love as a couple, not necessarily what everyone else will like, and you’ll be stuck with the premade playlist. Music pros are trained to read the dance floor. They can speed it up or slow it down so that your guests are footloose into the wee hours.

Do ask for help... we offer one hour complimentary sessions on planning. Make your appointment today with Thee Wedding Fairy... what every girl needs!

Don't Believe Everything You Read on How to Save $$$
Recently we read on a national website (The Knot) that a good way to save money is to "send a trusted friend to the nearest market to buy your wedding flowers". Here is what I (Jacque) have to say about that... "Ya Right" Do you really want your "friend" to make your flower so that when you walk down the aisle your flowers are falling out of your bouquet? Or your boutonnieres are hanging off the lapels? Now if your "friend" is a florist that is a different story. And wait... isn't your trusted friend walking down the aisle with you? Really girls lets think about this... there is a reason there have florists for approx. 200 years. Being a floral designer is more than just throwing flowers together. It comes with years of experience that a good florist knows how to take your dreams and turn them into beautiful arrangement on the table and in your hands.
So here is my tip... talk to your florist, tell them what your budget is and let a professional help you. This is the biggest day of your life and do you really want a grocery store tag stuck on the bottom of your bouquet or centerpieces?
Lots of tips tomorrow.. come ask questions. Get Inspired.. Get Real Answers. For those of you DYI brides.. don't miss the 10 AM workshop.
