Food Trends with Michael Lodge

The Association of Bridal Consultants had their monthly meeting at Westgate Lakes Resorts this past week and the topic of the day was “Food Trends.” Corporate Director of Food and Beverage Michael Lodge shared the 2017 trends of the year.

The trends that are showing up for this year include creating a theme with the food selections that are made for the wedding.

Having Brinner( Breakfast for dinner) for example why make a plain waffle, how about adding chicken and turning it into a gourmet dish good enough to serve at a wedding.

The food color for 2017 is purple.  You will see a lot of eggplant, purple potatoes and cauliflower to name a few.

Food trucks are still in from 2016, with the different types of foods that they offer, if the wedding venue allows them onsite, this is a great way to do something different at a wedding.

Donuts and donut holes as a give away at the wedding or as the dessert in exotic flavors is an up and coming 2017 trend.

Mini appetizers and dessert shooters, salads in martini glasses and other vegetables such as a cucumber wrap are showing up at weddings.

Food stations are taking a step up from the food already placed out for the guests to serve themselves, now the food stations are becoming interactive with the chef preparing it right there in front of you so that it is fresh instead of pre-cooked.   Now you can still have DIY guest stations for instance, a Smores station lends itself to a perfect after party treat as the party is starting to wind down in the last hour of the night.

Edible forks and spoons in appetizers is trending now so that silverware is not needed for appetizers.  This goes along with comfort foods for mini appetizers.

Cocktails are at times named after the bride and groom at a wedding.  Some of these cocktails are nonalcoholic and contain fruit in them, for example champagne and blueberries.  Some cocktails are named after the event instead of a person.  These are  signature drinks.

With all the trendy chefs coming out of LA, Chicago and New York, they are creating a dining experience that you will never forget.  As a wedding and event planner, it behooves the planner to get with the catering management at the venue to discuss the meal for the event.  The one thing that makes or breaks a wedding is the kitchen staff.  The staff only has one chance to make a memory for that couple.

So as a bride, when you get engaged, after the family is aware,  contact your wedding planner so that together you can plan a unique wedding that says “this is your day.”

The Association of Bridal Consultants would like to thank Corporate Director of Food and Beverage Michael Lodge of Westgate Lakes Resort for sharing “Food Trends” with the wedding industry professionals.

Beauty and the Bride

As a wedding professional do you often get asked by your brides what should I do for my make up and my hair on the wedding day?  Or do you think my make up looks good now so that I can do it myself on the wedding day?   My friend does hair and make up and we are going to save a ton of money because she is doing it for free, as you glance over at her friend’s make up that she is referring to in sky blue eye shadow with red lipstick and hair matted with hair spray (all you can think about is, we are stuck in an 80’s nightmare!) Those are the questions that can make any wedding professional look like a deer caught in headlights.  But it does not have to be that way.  Once you sign your bride up to work with you as your client, have a checklist of the things that you will go over with the bride for instance selection of photographer, videographer, dress shopping and all the other needed services, but most important  have a category on your planning forms called health and beauty.  This is where you can discuss with your bride about proper nutrition so that she has the energy that is needed on the day of, exercise to help her look the best that she can, skin care with a professional esthetician and lastly professional hair and make up that will make her look natural but beautiful on the day of the wedding.

The Association of Bridal Consultants had the pleasure of hosting their meeting at Marilyn Monroe Spa.  At this meeting we had an opportunity to hear from each person that works at the salon to explain the process of taking care of the bride’s skin, hair, and nails in order to prepare for the wedding day.  One of the take aways that stood out was to not wait for the week before to start planning the regime of hair, make up and skin.  The bride’s skin should start preparation almost simultaneous to the day after engagement so that it does not become an expensive last minute process. As a wedding professional, feel comfortable talking about these beauty tips.  Don’t forget to discuss teeth whitening and tips to maintain those pearly whites.  One of my personal favorites, if you have to have that cola or tea, use a straw and do not swish your drink in your mouth, use whitening toothpaste and whitening mouthwash.  Lastly if you are going to preach beauty, as a wedding professional don’t forget to check your own after all, our clients look up to us to be the best that we can be.

Thank you to our sponsors that made our meeting a success at Marilyn Monroe Spa.

Enjoy the Life You Were Born To Live

Is that a cliché’ to say live a healthy life, eat healthy and everything will be right with the world?   We would all like to think that, but we  know that things happen and in a spur of a moment, our lives change.  At our Association of Bridal Consultants Meeting this past April, we had two speakers, Judith Topper, healthy living speaker and Alayne Gatto, Certified Nutritionist.  Judith shared with the wedding planners and wedding professionals about healthy eating for our busy lives.  We are all guilty as wedding professionals of eating at our desks, grabbing fast food in between client meetings and the worse one of all, skipping meals.  Judith showed us through proper planning of our meals how we can maintain our health (and figures!).

Alayne Gatto, brought us some education on pregnancy for the pregnant professionals. But she also brought us information on how babies born too soon can affect our lives as well as the babies.  This month the Association of Bridal Consultants invited The Gift of Life, a local non-profit organization that supports parents of premature babies and babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.  The takeaway from this part of the meeting as wedding professionals, all lives matter, because that very premature baby can be our client and prematurity can affect anyone, even a wedding professional.  Tying that back to taking care of our health so that we can be as healthy as can be during the pregnancy for the things that we can control,   for example, proper sleep, nutrition, and exercise will help us be the best we can be during this stage.

Listen to both of these speakers as they give you a glimpse in to their topics!

 

When coordinating this meeting, we had to take in to account the topic of healthy eating.  The Chef at the Sheraton, knew exactly what to make so that we were eating a healthy lunch ad dessert of fresh fruit for our day.

Attracting and Working With the Luxury Bride

Have you ever wondered what it takes to work with a luxury bride?  What is considered a luxury bride? In this market managing a luxury bride means managing large budgets and planning events for clients that have high expectations.  It is not enough to have a degree in wedding planning services to call yourself a luxury wedding planner.  The luxury wedding planner must have experience, etiquette and knowledge of what a luxury wedding entails along with exceptional service.

Luxury brides most of the time come referred to a luxury wedding planner through word of mouth.  One rarely sees a luxury bride at a bridal show or being contacted through any of the online forums.   To work with a luxury bride, you will need to learn where  these brides eat, shop, get their hair done and work out.  It is a circle that you would have to be willing to frequent.  Most wedding planners starting out do not have the finances to invest in to their business right away so they start small which is okay as they develop their company.

If you are going to cater to the luxury bride, your prices will need to reflect that to the client, but with that will come a certain expectation of expert quality care.  Ask yourself, does your website reflect luxury? Are the pictures that you are showcasing considered luxurious? You won’t appeal to the luxury bride if your pictures and videos that are being showcased reflect a DIY or budget conscious bride.   For the right wedding planner the DIY or budget conscious bride is perfect,  but for the luxury bride,  from the moment they look at your website to the moment that they meet you, needs to say luxury.

A luxury wedding planner does not take on as many clients in a year due to the time that is invested in each client.  The luxury bride is usually a very busy high-profile bride that will not have a lot of time on their hands;  their expectation will be flexibility and trust in you as the luxury planner to plan their wedding seamlessly.

As a luxury wedding planner, you must always look and sound your best.  From the location that the client meetings take place , to the purse and  attire that is worn.  When meeting the client it is not an option to be in slacks and a sweater or a shirt.  The luxury planner should in a nice suit, dress, or pant suit.  It does not matter if the bride and groom come in jeans and a polo, they are looking at you and how you fit in their inner circle. Think about your hair, is it professional looking in style, is your make up, professional, are your nails done? You might say all of that is vain and yes it can be if not looked at in stride, however,  in order to capture that circle of clients, a certain level of expectation is going to be required.

Now  dress code and professional attire should always be a must regardless of what client any wedding planner is meeting because you only have 60 seconds to make a first impression when you walk into a room to meet a client.  Let the attire speak first, then what comes out of your mouth in the next few minutes is part 2 of selling yourself to the client and finding out if you are a good fit for them and if they are a good fit for you.

These are great tips to think about as you mold your business to the type of clients that you want to work with.

Heather Snively, Master Bridal Consultant spoke at our Association of Bridal Consultants luncheon recently.  We wanted her to bring us a few points on working with the luxury bride.  When coordinating the venue and the wedding professionals for the meeting,  it was important to think of the topic and who we needed to obtain to showcase a high-end event.  One of the points that Heather brought up in the meeting, was about meeting the catering manager of the high end venue for the first time.  When the planner comes to the luxury venue to meet the catering manager, it is important to have an established relationship prior to the meeting, even if it is on the phone.   When walking in to the venue with the client, exude confidence in who you are as a planner and have the knowledge to know the client’s budget, even though a luxury client may have a high budget, there is always an amount in their mind of what they are willing to spend but will most of the time spend much more because they go with a want and must have vs a need.

Listen to Heather talk about the luxury budget.

A Love that Lasts Forever….Gabby and Frank

What does it mean when you say a love that lasts forever?  Is it a love that lasts until the first fight? A love that lasts until one gets bored with the person they are with? Or is it a love that withstands the test of all times?  Let me share a love story that surpasses the fairytale romance of the wedding day.  For those that don’t know the story of Gabby and Frank, read their engagement blog here to see their story https://27miracles.com/2016/03/31/high-school-sweethearts-fall-in-love-gabby-and-frank/

Today, a man and a woman stand before God and their families to declare their love.  Neither of them have any idea what the future holds, but does anyone?  However that did not matter to either of them. They were best friends and they were in love.

If you recall in our engagement story, the Orlando wedding community joined together to give this deserving couple the wedding of their dreams.  With the many challenges that they faced financially for all the medical care that Gabby had to have, their would not be anything left to plan a wedding.

April 2, 2016 the day had arrived.  Thunderstorms were not going to keep this wedding from happening.  The day started out hot, muggy and stormy, but no one seemed to notice, all that mattered on this day was that hundreds of people were coming together to make a couple’s wedding dreams come true!

Gabby started her day getting her hair and make up done by Stylist Professor Maria Ivette Hernandez and her team of hair and make up artists as Gabby contemplated this day and her wedding dress 123-39 123-42

123-438Gabby found her mother to be such a huge support for here she did not want to pass a moment to dance with her mother.

The happy couple had many well wishers as they toasted to their new life together.

123-469

Before the night slipped away, Gabby wanted to thank all her guests and wedding professionals for making her dreams come true.

123-481

The bride had always dreamed of a 4 tier simple white cake with flowers around it.  Sharon Haller of Cut the Cake captured the vision as the happy couple cut the cake.

No one wanted the night to end, but it came to that time and yet another surprise, a chauffeured driven car from Southern Elegance Limousine to take them to a downtown Disney hotel for their honeymoon for a few days.

123-621

123-622Today we keep Gabby in our prayers for health and Frank for strength as they embark on this journey together. Do not marry the person that you can live with, marry the person that you cannot live without.  Enjoy your love with the person you are with for tomorrow is never promised.  Take the example of Gabby and Frank, best friends in love,  riding the waves of life together.  Some days the waves are crashing high and they hold on to the boat of life a little tighter as they ride the wave, other days they can sit back and relax in the boat as they rock gently back and forth.

Thank you to all our wedding professionals that donated time and service to make Gabby and Frank’s wedding day special.

A Surprise Rehearsal Dinner for Gabby and Frank

Today was the start of a special celebration for Gabby and Frank. They traveled to Orlando from South Florida for their wedding. They had their rehearsal at Henry Chapel at First Baptist Orlando.

After the wedding rehearsal was completed, we started the celebration with a rehearsal dinner at the Star Island Resort.  It was beautifully decorated in the bride’s favorite color of pink.

123-5 123-24

The couple did not have any idea that this was being planned for them while they were at First Baptist Orlando for their wedding rehearsal. Eric Clark with 27 Miracles coordinated the rehearsal dinner set up, while Adam Rubman of Orlando DJ and Lighting set up draping and uplights ( in pink of course) to accent the room.  Nick Sabatino of 123 Photyography and Bruce Reynolds of Treasured Moments awaited the arrival of the happy couple for their grand entrance.

The time arrived for the couple to be told why they were at Star Island Resort.   Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles welcomed the couple in and said, “this is your night with your family, a night with those that love you the most.”

Christine Mac Phail, Orlando  harpist, serenaded the couple as they came in with romantic love songs123-26123-19 123-30

Gabby and Frank were surprised.  A strawberry flavored cake awaited them from Party Flavors with pink butterflies ( a sign of new life).123-14The couple was taken back with the beauty of the island resort as they celebrated their love for each other. They wanted to explore and have a moment to dream about love, about their unique love.

Gabby shared her story about the terminal illness that she was enduring.  She started to tell us the long ordeal she has been going through since 2013 until a doctor finally figured out what was wrong.   Listen as Gabby shares her heartfelt story in her own words.  Listen to the strength and faith that she carries in her heart, but most importantly the love and gratitude that she has for the man that will soon be her husband.  It is a love that is often only seen in the movies, but this here is true love…..

Follow us on our wedding blog for the continuation of Gabby and Frank’s wedding.

Today Is The Day, The Day That Dreams Are Made Of April 22nd 2016

imagesThat was the headline 27 years ago when Diane and Don were married.  You might be asking yourself, who is Diane and Don?  Well they are a couple of lovebirds married 27 years ago of course.  But all kidding aside,  Diane Jenson is a Professional Wedding Planner for The Wedding Party as well as Co-Director for the Association of Bridal Consultants in Central Florida.  It is not often that we get to write a story about a fellow wedding professional.

Here is a little history on the happy couple in Diane’s own words

“After seven long years of dating, Don finally proposed to me and  two years later we were married.  It was a beautiful day on April 22, 1989 at 4pm  when we exchanged our marriage vows at Mead Gardens in Orlando.  The weather was picture perfect!  The headline in the Orlando Sentinel read “The day that dreams are made of.”

Wedding pic 1

When you ask Diane why she became a Professional Wedding Planner she said, “I have such a heart for planning a couple’s wedding.  I remember the excitement of the planning and how I wanted everything to be so perfect on our special day,  This is why I can truly relate to how a bride feels as she entrusts me to help make her wedding the dream of a lifetime.”

Wedding pic 2

I asked Diane about that love that she shares with Don for 27 years and how she feels about him now.  Diane simply stated, “we are a very happy bride and groom who love the Lord, each other, family and friends. We have enjoyed spending these twenty-seven years together through good and challenging times.  I am so thankful to God for giving me the man of my dreams.  We look forward to many more happy years together. ”

What an amazing story of love to see one of our own happily married.  Today from the entire team at 27 Miracles we want to wish Diane and Don a lifetime of love, happiness and romance always.  Happy 27th Anniversary!!! Thank you for letting us share that special year of “27” with us.

Most recently a group of Association of Bridal Consultant Planners and students alongside other wedding professionals came together to make a terminally ill bride’s dreams come true.

Here is Diane speaking at our January meeting this year at the warehouse for A Chair Affair, where Diane coordinated the transformation of a warehouse in to a design concept for wedding professionals to learn about design concepts with Tracy and Jennifer our speakers of the evening.
