I found a new love... I will Pin it!

Still looking for wedding ideas or yummy recipes? Well I have become in love with this site.

It is free to join and so much fun. I have spent hours and hours just searching for great new ideas. There are ideas for home decor, beauty, food, crafts, events, and so much more. Like, did you know that you can make a single serving dessert in a coffee cup in the microwave in 1 minute?? Bet you didn't. But I followed someones recipe for this and it was so yummy. 

Check it out and see what I am talking about. 

Trust me, you will get hooked, or should I say Pinned! lol (Okay, stop me, I am going crazy)

If you missed the show.. check this out!

If you were living under a rock and missed the Fall PC Bridal Exhibit then I have put together some photos and slideshow to see what you missed out on.

This Fall show was quite a success, lots of brides came and enjoyed themselves getting to know a ton of local vendors that were there providing great information as well as giving out some amazing prizes.

For starters, I have to share with you are amazing booth setup. We went with the whole fall theme. 

We had a tv set up playing a slideshow for some of our past events. 

The main table was set up like a fall wedding/party with gold charger place settings. Each place setting showed off our new custom wedding favors that are available for any theme for $3 each. We can make how ever many quantities are needed. 

Want to see more photos of our booth or the rest of the show. Check out the video below. 

Remember to follow the blog so you don't miss the next show!

Got the Bling... Now What? Part 2

Part 2

Identify your wedding style

I know what you are thinking, you think you should select a date first. Wrong! You need to figure out your wedding style and the event's tone, and other decisions will fall into place. Knowing what style, will help you figure out when the best date is. 

  • If Cinderella's you dream fairy tale when you picture your fantasy wedding, you're a traditionalist. Think cathedral train, 10 piece ensemble, chandelier lit ballroom, filet mignon, flowing champagne, and the towering tier fondant covered cake. 

  • You absolutely love outdoor get togethers and impromptu everything. Chances are you're a casual gal who'd take to a beach reception wearing a simple slip dress and flip-flops, with a sensational sunset providing the decor. Or maybe a barn or backyard barbecue, with great music and casual lighting.

  • Couples who get a new wardrobe or car every season might favor a hot new restaurant, a loft, even a architect's studio for their reception, paying as much attention to their table design as to their attire. No surf and turf for this couple. 

Any of these wedding styles can be achieved with any budget. 
Stay turned for Part 3.

"Got the Bling...Now what?" Part 1

Part 1

What to do right away:

* Spread the big news. After telling your immediate families and best friends, let your boss, colleagues, and other friends in on the good news. One easy way of spreading the news fast is using a social media network such as, Facebook and Twitter.

*Get your engagement ring sized (if needed). Depending on the setting and finish, this can take from a few hours to a few days. The sooner you get this done, the more time you will have to show it off with confidence knowing that it fits just right. 

* Buy some sort of planner, this can be one of those wedding organizer books or just a simple binder that you can use to store all the upcoming information and details of your special day. This is also important to have when meeting with your wedding planner because all the information they will need will be right at your finger tips. 

What Can Wait:

* Choosing your colors, securing your site is way more important than what colors you want to decorate with. After you have chosen your venue site then you can think of colors.

*Picking your attendants: no need to rush anyone into service the day after the proposal. Get the big picture of your wedding nailed down before you put together your bridal party.

*Arranging the seating chart: Hello you have plenty of time to do this. You can wait till even a few weeks before the wedding to tackle this. You need to wait till you have a more accurate head count.

Where have I been?

Sorry for the lack of new posts. I have been crazy busy. As many of you may not know, I am almost 7 months pregnant and I never knew how much energy it would take out of me to carry this precious little one inside of me. She has made my nights and days mixed up and through out the day I am just plain exhausted. It's tough work carrying a future Events by Joann coordinator. Even though I have not been posting as much, does not mean I have not been working on tons of ideas for the blog. 

I am starting a new blog post series on "Got the Bling, but Now what?" 
I hear many brides that don't even know where to start with the wedding planning process. Here at Events by Joann we can help relieve lots of your stress on the planning process. I will try to address all the things that most brides forget about. 
The first post of this series will begin tomorrow, so be on the look out for it!
For fun, what do you think I am going to say is the first thing you need to do once you get the bling?

Will you be.....?

So how were you asked to be a part of someone's special day? Did they just call you and ask, sent you a text, or did they do one of these creative ideas????

Will you be my...maid of honor/bridesmaid/flower girl card:
There are tons of cute premade cards available, but if you are feeling creative go for it and make your own. It will just add to the personal touch!

Video/DVD Proposal:
Okay, so the bride had a proposal so why not her bridesmaids. Some brides are creating a special video asking their friend/family to be part of their special day and then burning it to a dvd. They then send the dvd to the person and wait for their answer... (This is great for those how live out of town, so they feel that you are right there asking them!)

Those are just two cute ideas that you could use to ask your girls to be part of your special day! 
Share with me how you were asked....

Wedding Trend (Peacock Weddings)

Here is a look at a wedding that Events By Joann decorated in one of the top wedding trends right now, peacocks! The wedding was held in Lakeland, FL at the Peggy Brown Building. The bride and groom selected peacock blue tablecloths, with green overlays, and topped with satin purple napkins. Each chair was tied with a simple knot in the same peacock blue satin.

Events By Joann also provided the ceiling design.

Tip Tuesday

It's time to talk about the dreaded guest-list!

Deciding who to invite can be a big concern for every couple when it comes to planning your wedding/event. Whether the concern is over money or space, it just seems to cause road blocks for couples.
It'd be nice if there were a magic formula that you could plug your guest list into to figure out who truly belongs on your guest list, especially when it comes to those certain friends and family members you haven't seen since graduating from grade school. Because there isn't, I have put together my version of "scientific formula".
Please give it a try and let me know what you think.

*One thing I forgot to include is that proper etiquette is to not invite someone to your showers if you don't plan to invite them to the main event (wedding).

Hot Trends for Summer 2011 Weddings

 Trend 1: Color Theme
                When people think of summer they think of bright vibrant colors, such as orange, pink, green, and purple. Make sure you aren’t doing too many colors because then your wedding day may look like a parade. You want to stick with no more than two primary colors. For example you can do a natural color with a bright green which will make the green pop.  


Trend 2: Personalized Theme
                Is there a special memory you'd like to incorporate into the wedding? I am seeing more and more wedding wear the bride and groom display childhood memory photos.

Trend 3: Beyond Wedding Cakes
                Why do that boring old white wedding cake?  Instead of a cake do a tower of cupcakes.  Dessert bars are all the frenzy - cookie bar, ice cream sundae bar or pie bar - your guests will love the variety.  Add a candy bar and you've got all areas covered.  Don't forget the goody bags so guests can take some home!

 Trend 4: Bright Colors = Bright Wedding Accessories
                It's all about color, so why not the shoes?  Add a little color and sparkle that gives a fun, unexpected ingredient. 

Trend 5: Eco-Friendly Favors
                We are all thinking about the environment these days, so why not use your wedding to give back.  Some fun favors are local herb in a tint can or a jar of honey. Something guests will use rather than tossing into that “everything” drawer.  Selecting a charity you feel passionate about is also a great way to give back.
