Bridal Praise

Thursday, February 28, 2008 No comments
I received such a nice note from one of my brides today after one of our vendor meetings, and wanted to share it here on my blog:

Valarie, I am so excited! I am pretty sure I will end up going with this photographer. I'll discuss with Joe, but I have a feeling that I will be happy with that choice. Thanks so much for everything so far, I am soooooooooooooo glad that Kim recommended you and that I was able to obtain your services. I can't imagine where I'd be in the process if I was doing this all on my own.... not to mention what my stress level would be!!!! I feel like it's going to be awesome, beautiful, fun and memorable and I can't wait. I'm also thrilled that it's not putting Joe and I into debt and that we can afford life after the wedding too. I might send you some things decoration wise that I like, but I think you get the vibe I'm going for. I'll let you know where I land with the bridesmaids dresses and I'll get a picture of mine for you, so you can have those to work off too. Yeah!!!!! Again, just want to say thanks for your efforts.

A Chicago-Themed Wedding

On November 8, Kirkbrides traveled to Cincinnati to help Megan and Scott hold their dream "Chicago-themed" wedding! Megan grew up in Cincinnati and now lives in Chicago with Scott. What a better theme for the Saturday night wedding than embracing the details of the city where they met!

Please also take note how much Megan looks like the live version of the bride in the Kirkbrides logo! She was absolutely stunning.

Unique Wedding Idea

Saturday, February 16, 2008 No comments

One of the weddings I am working on planning right now will be an "Old Glam" theme. It will be held in a gorgeous ballroom reminiscent of the 1940's. Instead of placing a favor at each place setting, we will have a photobooth set up outside in the lobby for guests to take pictures together and take home the traditional "photo strip". We will also use this as the guest book, so guests can sign their wishes to the bride and groom next to their picture. Think of how entertaining this guest book will be in 30 years!
