This past weekend, I was honored to exhibit at The Bride Guide to West Chester's Bridal Fair. The show has been held annually for a few years now, but this was my first time participating as a vendor and it was a wonderful experience.
Over 140 brides arrived to the Chester County Historical Society in West Chester, PA with their fiancee, MOH's and mothers to meet new vendors, participate in a cake smash (it was as messy as it sounds) and win amazing prizes donated by the vendors.
It meant a lot to me to participate in a bridal show that was held in a museum, as my background in history is a big part of my practice as a planner and the work that I do. If you haven't yet, be sure to check out the Chester County Historical Society - they run wonderful events year-round.

It doesn't get any easier than this.
You wake up and pour yourself a second cup of coffee (because it's that kind of day). Luckily, the meeting that you have scheduled with your wedding consultant is via Skype, and she highly encourages Snuggies and topknots while reviewing attainable goals for the week.
Later, you open a text to a bridesmaid who just changed her mind about the shade of pink that you asked everyone's opinion on last month. You don't want to be a bridezilla, but the text hit a nerve. You text your wedding consultant who gives you advice on how to handle the situation.
It's two days before the wedding and you're surprisingly calm. You have your timeline printed and ready to go, your vendors have already confirmed their roles and duties and you've successfully crossed every item off of your checklist. Your bridal party and family know the plan for the big day and you are looking forward to your final call with your wedding consultant to go over a few last minute details.
This is not a dream. It's my new virtual wedding consultation program.
As an event planner, it is my job to make people's lives easier, and while the internet is a goldmine for inspiration, it doesn't do a whole lot of problem solving.
My new program will be available as a subscription service where you will receive unlimited phone and email communication, scheduled Skype or FaceTime meetings, access to my online wedding planning program, checklists, and more.
We will chat throughout the month to make sure that you are on track and if you have questions throughout the planning process, I'll be available to answer them. If you feel stressed out, I'll be here to ease your nerves and help you to problem solve. My goal is to remove the feeling of overwhelm from the planning process for you so that you can actually enjoy it.
