Your Wedding Vision

Welcome Back! I have neglected the ENVI Weddings blog for awhile, but I am glad to be able to come back and share some industry tips, ENVI special tricks, and just anything and everything wedding or events related with our readers.
I'm in the process of planning a few events and with every client the first question is: What is your Vision? Vision? What is that?
Well, the vision is what do you see. Just like with your eyes you are able to see where you are going, your event or wedding for these purposes should have a vision as to what you see and how you want your guests to feel while they are there. Do you see romance, love, fun and frills or even a goth theme (yes, there are those who would LOVE this type of wedding)? Before you hire a bunch of vendors and contract a venue, you should know ultimately where you want to end up. For example, if you see a clean lines space with pops of color, then you wouldn't want to book a venue that has all black walls (unless you plan to drape the entire space in white chiffon like Kandi and Todd did at Le Fais Do Do) However event drapery for an entire room can cost a lot of money, which is not in the budget for everyone. 1. Write down what you want to see. All of your ideas can flow more freely once you are able to get them out on paper. 2. Use Social Media sites like Pinterest and Instagram for ideas. Pinterest is an event planners BFF! I'm on Pinterest day and night, for event decor, home remodeling, even recipes! You can search for photos by color palette, get ideas from what other people are doing and using, as well as organize your ideas onto different "Boards" to keep all ideas in tact. 3. Have fun! It is YOUR day (and your soon to be spouse). Enjoy it and plan it the way YOU both see it. Do not allow anyone to come in a steal your day from you. Until next time..... Happy Planning! Morgan N. Scott, CWP

Wedding Heirloom Keepsakes

Your wedding day is a day that you will remember for the rest of your life. There are always keepsakes to commemorate that special day. Preserving your gown, engagement shoot blow up photos, even an engraved cake knife (really will you ever use that again?).

Here is something else that is so intriguing it is basically ingenious! The cake table is adorned with everything keepsake - knife, champagne flutes. How about this for creativity..... bride & groom personalized cake plates!

Our friends at Paloma's Nest have created such a wonderful idea and I'm sure brides all over the country will be adding it to their collection of must haves for their special day.

Summertime Bridal Shows ~ How to Work a Show!

Summertime is here and in between vacations, family reunions, weekend cookouts, there are tons of Bridal Shows for Bride-to-Be's to venture out on the weekend. So this task may be daunting or may be fun for others, but there is an art to tackling the Bridal Show. How to work a show you may ask? Well here are 5 tips of how to strategize and make the most of your time at these types of events.

1. Make Labels!
There are sometimes close to a hundred different wedding vendors ready to grab your information, add you to their rolodex, and give you terrific information with hopes of you contracting them for your wedding day. Do you really want to leave after 3 hours of walking through a huge facility with Carpel Tunnel syndrome in your right arm from writing your name and address all day? Of course not! Take some pre printed labels with your Name, Address, Phone Number, Email Address and Wedding Date. It's so much easier to peel and stick. 5 seconds and you're done!

2. Bring a friend!
There's nothing more special than taking a bestie with you to a Bridal Show. Whether she be your mom, sister, BFF, or cousin, it helps to be able to bounce ideas off someone, or get a second opinion about a vendor that you may be considering. They may see something that you didn't see or hear something that you tuned out.

3. Bring 2 Bags!
One for your definite callbacks and one for your everything else. There is so much information and freebies to get at Bridal Shows that it becomes overwhelming. What will happen is that everything will start to run together and you will forget who said what and where they were. If you can separate while you are there, it will keep things in perspective for you later.

4. No Pressure!
Don't feel pressured into signing contracts at the table the day of the Show. Treat it as a First Date. First Impressions count. I tend to shy away from overly pushy vendors.

5. Dress Appropriately!
Just as you are trying to see if these vendors are a good fit for your wedding day, they are assessing you as well. Make sure you dress appropriately to conduct business. It may be casual, but it is still a first impression - MAKE IT COUNT!

I hope these tips will help you move forward in your wedding planning venture.

Until next time...

The Not-So Traditional Valentine's Day

The Not-So Traditional Valentine’s Day
By: Morgan N. Scott, CEP

Valentine’s Day, or so affectionately called by men, “The Woman’s Holiday”, is right around the corner and every year men get antsy as to what to buy, how to surprise, or how to distinguish this year’s special day from last year, and of course top themselves in the process.

Ladies, how about let’s spin the tables a bit in 2011 and do something extra special and spicy for your beau, to show him how much he is appreciated. There are many things that we can do for our Valentine, that can tickle the fancy of a man.
While we love being showered with gifts of chocolate covered strawberries, dining in the city’s hot spots by candlelight, or even romantic dinners at home, we all know these can be a tad cliché for our men. For most men, the key to their heart is food…..and sports! Why not surprise him with tickets to your local NBA team ‘s home game, if not on Valentine’s day, close to it? After the game, what’s wrong with hoping to an open bar and have some drinks? It doesn’t have to be an early night, let your hair down and have a great time and I’m sure he will appreciate the fact that you thought about him on this “Couple’s Day.”

Now of course, this can be two-fold, because you may hate basketball and your idea of a fun time might not be downing Henn and Coke like you’re one of the guys, so the something spicy can be a Couple’s day at the spa for His and Her massages the next day. Life gets us all a little tense, so there is nothing wrong with a little winding down to take the stress of life off and just enjoy each other’s company in the process.

Whatever you do this Valentine’s Day, make it extra special for your extra special love!

Sonya + Roman November 6, 2010

I witnessed a beautiful Catholic wedding ceremony today of one of my dearest friends, Sonya Scott and her new hubby Roman Doss. This was a pure example of true love and how two people can know each other for a lifetime and God bring them together later in life and it is absolutely stunning!

The wedding was gorgeous, the bride was beautiful and the ambiance was great!

A few pics to come of just how beautiful the wedding and reception were.

Until next time...
