Next Sunday from 12pm-4pm we will be hosting a one of a kind bridal event with Jewelbilee, in Moorestown, NJ. One of our awesome brides getting married next September is thinking about doing a cookie bar for her favors and as desert. Meghan and I loved the idea! So, we thought we'd do one for our up coming show! Best part we did it for very little money! First we got out our chalk board spray paint (we had from another project) you can find at Home Depot or Lowes and purchased 4 moasic boards from Michaels-found in the wood section, for crafts. Each board was $1.49-AWESOME!
We then taped up the edges and sprayed the boards to make them look like mini chalk boards.
Let dry, remove tape, and poof...mini chalk boards!
Next I wrote the words in chalk!
Meghan and I put our creativity to work and layed out our table...It will look awesome when the cookies are actually in the containers and on top of all the cups that will be filled with milk!
Check back next Sunday for the finished look!

We attended a great bridal event, by Bouche Productions, this past weekend at The Haddonfield Fortnightly in Haddonfield NJ. We were excited to meet all the brides, some who were towards the end of their planning, heading into the home stretch and one bride had gotten engaged on Monday prior to the event. Attending bridal shows is a great way to meet local vendors, talk face to face and even see some of their products as well as their competition. Being a wedding planner, we are basically selling ourselves, a service that we can tell you about and a service that frankly many brides feel they can do without! So for our table we set up displays of unique, what we like to call "Details". In every wedding there is a ceremony, a cocktail hour, a reception; eating and dancing. What makes a wedding unique are all the details. Meghan and I love the detail portion of a wedding. The details pull the entire event together, uniting a common color, theme or ambiance. Meghan and I also know that the details can be very expensive and that's where we come in! The important things are your dress, venue, food, entertainment and photographer! That's where you should spend the majority of your budget. The details should be a small fraction! When we set out to start our business we had a few things in mind, one being that we could offer brides our unique ideas paired with our thriftiness. Thus, leaving them to spend more on the important things. Now, with that being said, I must add that in spending so much on the important things, how can you not afford to hire someone to make sure it all comes together. That's where we come in again! Because you plan your wedding so far in advance, the likelihood that the coordinator at your venue will no longer be employed, is quite high. In fact, during Meghan's wedding planning process we went through three different venue coordinators, each time having to reiterate everything. Not to mention that the coordinator never really knew Meghan and was never invested in making sure her day went perfectly! Having a wedding planner would ensure your day was just as you envisioned. We can also offer you numerous examples of wedding day disasters, there always seem to be at least one. This past weekend we arrived at the venue at 10:00am to find the linens being delivered. Upon opening them we also noticed they were wrong!!!! As we debated what to do the delivery men walked back into the room just in time. They called the warehouse and sent more linens that arrived just in time for the tables to be set. Back in August we arrived at a hotel and collected the flowers from the florist. As we double checked the needed flowers for the wedding party and ceremony we noticed that there were two missing Jr. Bridesmaid bouquets and two missing roses for the parent's of the bride and groom. As the bride finished getting ready we dismantled her "throw away bouquet" and using our emergency kit, fixed the problem. We also had a wedding that needed pipe and drape added to the venue. It was on the contract but as the day went on, no one was putting it up. As the ceremony time was fast approaching I tracked down the venue coordinator and "reminded" them of the pipe and drape. Come to find out they completely forgot and had to call the service men back to the venue to have it put up! I really can't imagine the brides face if she were to have arrived at the venue with no pipe and drape! My point, don't trust that everyone will do as they say they will. When a venue coordinator says they will make sure everything gets done, rest assured when the day comes, and they have your money, they will be nowhere to be found! When a DJ has no idea how to pronounce your wedding parties names, rest assured he won't go and ask. When the flowers arrive wrong, rest assured they won't take them back and fix them. When the limo company doesn't show up, rest assured they don't care that you have to squeeze your dress into a friends Ford Focus. And rest assured, that when you hire a wedding planner that you trust, like Kyle Michelle Weddings, we will take care of it all, leaving you none the wiser! Vendors provide a product-we provide a service and our service is focused on you!!!!!
We are looking forward to an eventful weekend starting with our
drive to Atlantic City for Michele and Mike's rehearsal at The Church of the
Assumption! From there we will head to Ocean City to assemble the favors/escort
cards for their wedding! We are excited about the display Meghan thought up for
the favor/escort cards-check back for pictures! The next day we head to the
House of Blues at 10:00am to set up favor/escort card display and centerpieces!
By 11:30am we'll be picking up the flowers at the hotel and bringing them to the
guys and pinning them! Limo will arrive and whisk the guys off to the church to
wait for the bride! The wedding will begin promptly at 1:30pm! After the wedding
are ALL the pictures by photographer, John O'Boyle Photography! I am excited to
see how she incorporates the Boardwalk, Casino, Beach and The Foundation Room
where the cocktail hour will be held from 5:00pm-6:00pm. From 6:00pm-11:00pm
will be the awesome reception! At that point we'll pack up everything from the
centerpieces to the cake and deliver it to the Bridal Suite, making sure to make
it the easiest day possible for the happy couple! We then head back, about an
hour drive and get a good night’s rest! Sunday is The Haddonfield Wedding Walk
from 12:00pm-4:00pm! We are very excited about all our displays. We decided on a
fall theme and incorporated a unique cupcake display, cupcakes provided by Indulgence Cupcakery, escort card/favor display, candy bar display and giveaway, centerpiece and MORE!!! By the end of the weekend we will need a mini vacation!
