Bridal Magazine Review

Last time I gave you a list of the wedding books and magazines that I think are really good. I took another look at the magazines I recommmended – “Martha Stewart Weddings” and “In Style Weddings” – and thought I’d let you know some of the cool stuff that’s in them. This might be a…

Long time no see. Oh, and take a look at these books.

Yes, it’s been awhile. I went to San Diego for my best friend’s birthday, I signed a couple more clients, I’m planning weddings for a few more, I’m managing interns, and I’ve neglected my poor blog.

Wednesday already?

How the heck did that happen? Went to Palos Verdes for a site visit and brought the girls. I’ve been to a couple of hillside mansions in my time, but my lovely interns were awed. I was all, right, where are we putting the band, and they were all, wow, look at the view! Is…

Here Comes Bridezilla!

Okay, so you can download the theme song to “Bridezilla” on the Women’s Entertainment network here. Which I’ve done, because I’m highly amused by the thought of listening to it on my ipod. Yeah, I watch the show, because I sort of feel a professional obligation to. And it’s also kind of cool to see…

Busy, busy, busy

Yup, wedding season is definitely here. I just signed two new clients in the past couple of weeks, so that makes a total of six weddings I’m actively working on. Which sounds like a lot. Well, it kind of is a lot, but it sounds like a lot less once you realize that three of…
