Platted Dinners

Platted dinners are trendy for 2013 wedding receptions. The dishes, glassware and flatware, as well as the table clothes, table runners and chair covers, in the pictures are rental items from The Celebration Place. I designed the centerpieces - Did I tell you I LOVE MY JOB!!! I would love to custom design a centerpiece just for YOU! Tell me your vision. I will make it happen!
My dear friend Vickie owns Victoria's Event Planning and Catering. Vickie would so enjoy talking with your about your reception meal. Tell her Misty said her chicken salad is "Heavenly!"

2013 Lovebirds

I am hearing (and, my sources are experts!) 2013 is the year Lovebirds will make a grand appearance at weddings and wedding receptions.
I love the birds! Don't you? The birds are appearing from the wedding invitation - picture by, to the cake topper - picture by Kaboodle.com, all the way to featured centerpieces at the reception - picture by Fete Fanatic Blog.

I can see your and your Love's name on the wedding invitation ... wedding and reception to be held in the breathtakingly beautiful Panama City Beach area. Some of my friends are the best wedding cake bakers ever. I can get you in touch and coordinate the presentation.

The lovely centerpiece is what I love to create for brides and The Celebration Place will gladly provide the rental table, linens, chairs and anything else you will need. The Celebration Place has adorable birdcages for card collection ....

Pamper Me!

Tuesday of last week my back was aching. I love bridal shows; however, those hours standing on hard concrete floors can take quite a toll on my back. I need to be refreshed, relaxed and ready so I can provide each and every bride 100% of me. My favorite solution to get me feeling good is The Back Connection.

A massage means so much to me - stress gone, emotional stability in check, health taken care of (my back no longer aches) and I DESERVE THE PAMPERING!

WHAT ABOUT YOU?  Read this article from Inside Weddings aptly named Countdown: Surviving the Week Before The Wedding. Take note of their suggestions and incorporate as many as possible into your week before The Wedding! You and your new hubby will be glad you did.
Remember The Back Connection. Their telephone number is 850-215-1708. Make your appointment now!

Hot 2013 Wedding Trend - MINT!

Cool, soft, oh so pretty Mint is a hot runway trend for 2013 ...
Pictures from By Celina.

The color Mint is such a beautiful signature color and looks so very eloquent relaxing on Panama City Beach, strolling our local shops or all ready for an evening of fine dining at an exclusive seafood restaurant.

Mint is the Number One Wedding color for 2013. Mint can be added to Your Special Day is many creative ways ....

Bridezillas!!! and a Winner!!!!!

I asked and you told me! The chosen topic from our drawing at the Wedding Extravaganza this past Sunday was Bridezillas!!!

According to Wikipedia The word "bridezilla" is a portmanteau for a difficult bride, combined with the fictional rampaging beast "Godzilla" and Bridezillas is an American reality television show which follows the lives of women engaged to be married, casting their busy schedules in an emphatic and sometimes humorous fashion.

Below are links to a variety of articles we found online about Bridezillas ......

New Breed of Single Brides
Business Insider
Bridezillas photos on PhotoBucket

Image Borrowed from
Now for my take - there are no Bridezillas. Girls start dreaming of Their Wedding Day at a very early age. You have the Perfect Picture in your mind. Achieving Your Day! can be stressful, time consuming, expensive and an organizational nightmare.

Here is where I enter the picture ... I am a wedding planner, decorator, coordinator, notary (Yes, I can perform the ceremony!) and I own The Celebration Place, an equipment rental company. I would LOVE to do it all for you! I can and will do as much as or as little as you would like. Please call me. We can talk about your Dream Wedding!

Crystal won our drawing for $25.00 credit toward rental items. Congratulations, Crystal. I have sent you an email and look forward to hearing from you soon. Much thanks to all who submitted suggestions for my future blog posts.
