Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We certainly did. We are so excited to announce we surpassed our goal of 100 “likes” on our Facebook page ! We had a number generator select our winners for the contest this morning. Our Grand Prize Winner, Renee Coolidge, won free event planning services (up to a $2500.00 value) and our Runner-Up Winner, Brittany Fielder, won 50% off event planning services. Congratulations ladies!! Also, a huge thank you to everyone who has been supporting us and sharing our page. We are so appreciative of all of the love and support.
Today, I wanted to share some of our upcoming plans with you. We are working on Fall and Winter look-books and also doing some forecasting for Spring. This part of being an Event Planner is one of my favorite parts! I love researching designers and fashion trends and planning for what is coming next! Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing some of our forecasts with you, so you will definitely want to stay-tuned!
We are also planning on attending several Bridal expos this fall and winter. If you have any suggestions of places you would like to see us showcase, please comment or contact us!
We are also starting to meet with more vendors to expand our preferred vendor list. We are looking for all different types of vendors- bakers, florists, DJs, stationary, officiants, venues, caterers, transportation, rental companies, etc. We offer discounted services to our preferred vendors and also marketing perks. For more information about how to become a preferred vendor, please contact us!
I don’t want this post to be all about our plans, so let me leave you with a few of my favorite trends for the fall and winter, which can basically be summed up in one word, Gatsby!

This Marchesa gown combines 3 fall and winter trends we adore- short sleeves, cowl back, and illusion back. This gown is sophisticated, elegant, and fun all at the same time.

Just in case we hadn’t sold you on Jenny Packham already, this beauty is another Jenny Packham gown. This one features several trends as well- open back, metallic lace, coverlet, and sleeves.

This Carolina Herrera gown is fun and romantic, featuring another hot trend, glitter tulle. We love the sparkle and could see this being a gorgeous New Years Eve wedding gown or even a gown for spring wedding that featured a neutral palette with bright florals.
This is only a sneak peak of what is to come! Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for trend forecasting!
