Failing to plan, is planning to fail

Planning an event is a huge, and often underestimated, undertaking.  From managing the guest list, venue, flowers, decor, appetizers to desserts – you can literally spend weeks getting all the details right.

Mistakes you can avoid: 

(1) Failing to utilize resources properly
Whether it’s your sister-in-law who has an uncanny ability to create divine desserts, or your brother’s desire to be a DJ – it’s vital to know who can and can not help your event be successful.  Friends an family can be great resources for your special day, but remember it can be difficult to “fire” someone who doesn’t seem to be following through or not meeting your expectations.  Often times, the reduction in stress, time-savings, and product quality lead many to hiring a professional.* How we can help:  
Invitations, decor, gifts, linens, chair covers (with FREE delivery, setup and take-down!)

(2) Avoiding a catastrophe – Stay positive, but have an action plan & prepare for the worse
Your special day will be awesome but don’t ignore the obvious.  If your event will be outdoors, what plan do you have in place for rain?  With small children at the reception – is it safe?We’ll assume your are not planning a cliff side reception, but could they be crushed by your 12 tower wedding cake?  Take a moment to step back from your event and look at it from an outsider’s point of view.

When and how to RSVP?
What are we waiting for?  Are we supposed to…?
* How we can help:

(3) Waiting until the last minute
Unless you decided yesterday to get married, more than likely you have time on your side. Start planning early and find the right people and/or companies to help you pull off your event.  If you want sequined table linens and chair covers with beautiful sashes – more than likely there’s someone else who wants them as well.  Reserving your “must-have’s” early is a must!  So, whether it’s flowers, save the date cards, or limo service – make a timeline of when you will have things completed by and stick to it!* How we can help:
