Posted by Lyndsey on Wednesday, July 9, 2014,
It's been too long since we posted last. The reason? We've been too busy! Yes folks, we've had such a productive spring and we owe it all to our family, friends, and wonderful clientele. Betsy and I want to specifically thank our husbands, Adam and Josh, for putting up with our crazy schedules, for lending a hand when we need one, and for playing Mr. Mom while we pursue our weekend warrior dreams of event planning and coordination. #besthusbandsever!

One specific project we worked on this spri...

Phone Check, Please.

Posted by Lyndsey Calico on Tuesday, January 21, 2014, In : Wedding Trends 
One interesting new trend we've noticed recently is the wedding ceremony phone check. It's a bit like a coat check, but for couples who would rather keep their guests from posting wedding updates on instagram, facebook, twitter, etc. during their wedding ceremony. 

We had a bride recently interested in this...and asked, "How do I go about this without pi**ing people off?" Great question...

Some of our suggestions:
 - ask the officiate to make an announcement
 - put a note on the program
 - ask you...

The Power of Veto

Posted by Betsy and Lyndsey on Monday, July 8, 2013,

Recently, I met with a bride who told me about her power of veto. She wasn't referring to her stint on CBS' Big Brother, but her wedding planning!

On a Budget? Read this!

Posted by Elizabeth Lowe on Thursday, March 18, 2010,
Recently, a friend of mine asked me some advice regarding the planning of his wedding. To start, as a task manager, I asked the big questions. When? Where? How? The last, as in "how are you paying for the wedding?" is always the toughest question I have to ask as a wedding planner. Many times the answer is simple, "well, my parents are helping us out".
