Honoring A United States Soldier on His Wedding Day

When Rosie Moore, Master Bridal Consultant for 27 Miracles met Nayya in July of 2012, she got a chance to hear Nayya’s story of Love between her and Jose.  Jose is an active duty soldier in Afghanistan. She and Jose wanted to plan their wedding for September 2013 because that is when she thought that he would get leave from the service.  Rosie and Nayya started the planning of the wedding.  In early November 2012, Nayya got the word that Jose would be coming home soon, and they can push the wedding up to May 2013 on Memorial Day Weeekend.

Nayya and Jose were ecstatic to be able to plan their wedding on a military resort….Shades of Green…

What excitement Nayya had to hear that her true love, would be home soon.  He told her that it may not be until January or February, but he would be home.   Nayya continued her wedding planning with Rosie and leading her every day life.  On Christmas Eve there was a knock at the door, she opened the door and to her surprise there was Jose standing in the doorway with arms open wide and saying, “I am home!” What a Christmas blessing!  Of course he still had some monthly trainings to attend but he was home from Afghanistan, he had served his time.

On Saturday May 25, 2013 we celebrated with Nayya and Jose a special ceremony of Love at Shades of Green (a resort for military families). DeMarco Films captured their story through  pictures of the wedding.

The decor of the ceremony site was  so romantic in red roses by RJ Glamour.  The bride’s bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets were made by a friend of the bride’s as a special gift to the bride.

Bridezillas How to Handle Them

27 Miracles every now and then encounters a good reading article.  here is one from AAWP on Bridezillas.

“One of the major bridal magazines wrote an article they entitled Brides Behaving Badly. We guess it’s their take on the “Bridezilla” phenomena that has swept the country-even resulting in a TV show of the same name. Good Grief! Why is it that an engagement ring becomes a bride-to-be’s license to be haughty, witchy (for want of a better word ) and demanding. The article in Elegant Bride gives this advice, “Don’t treat these people (family members, friends, etc.) like your loyal subjects.” We take it one step further, “Don’t treat them like slaves.”

One of our consultants told us of a bride who told her pastor that he was NOT to walk in front of her during the ceremony because she wanted everyone to see her. This same bride called her fraternal grandparents two days before the wedding and told them she didn’t care if they attended her wedding or not-and she never ordered them a corsage or boutonniere from the florist. We can proudly say that our AAWP consultant did the right thing and when the grandparents showed up at the ceremony, she provided them with flowers! The grandmother was teary eyed in appreciation. The bride, however, went ballistic on our consultant, telling her she had no right to do what she’d done-and told her to take the flowers from the grandparents. Our consultant refused and told this Bridezilla that she had done the right thing! And she did.

Another of our AAWP consultants wrote about a bride who threw a tantrum in a bridal shop. Her mother, obviously used to this behavior, simply turned to her and said, “Did you take your Prozac today, dear?” An owner of a large, elegant bridal salon in Boston, told us that a bride told her to *** *** when she was told that she needed an appointment to try on gowns. WHAT?! Let’s get a grip here!

A wedding is but one event in your life-and it is THE DAY to be most gracious hostess you can be. It’s your job to plan your wedding with civility and kindness. Be kind, be civil and always put yourself in the other person’s shoes. Make your fiancé proud of you though all the stress, rigors, and emotions of wedding planning. He’s the one who should say, “WOW, what a woman! Nothing shakes her. I know that she’ll be able to handle any situation that comes up in our life just because of the wonderful, common sense way that she’s tackled this wedding.” Happy Weddings All! ” http://www.aa-wp.com/wedding-planning/

27 Miracles is here to relieve your stress and they have had their share of not so pleasant brides and grooms or bridal party members and or parents and even a vendor or two who lack professionalism.  But at the end of the day, the 27 Miracles team maintains their professionalism throughout the verbal attacks and continue to do what they are hired to do  best, Make Miracles happen.  Although they have a bridezilla clause in their contract, they have only had to use it once.  By far Rosie Moore, Master Bridal Consultant says, “I have some of the best clients and vendors and so glad to be working with them.”  So as 27 Miracles will say, ” this is your wedding day, enjoy it, those short 4-5 hours after a year-long of planning happen so fast, do not sweat the little details, let us handle them for you.  Leave the family squabbles at home and enjoy the day.  Why? Because at the end of the day, regardless of what happened, you will both be just as married.  So, isn’t it better to just enjoy the day and give people something t talk about for years?  When people say that was the best wedding we attended?

Happy Planning!!

What Is Important To You On Your Wedding Day

Are you looking for ways to lessen wedding costs? A good idea is to reflect on what is most important to you for a wedding.

Take some time to make a list of all the necessary items for your wedding. Include details such as decor, dj and entertainment, lighting, floral, catering, and of course the venue. Now, pick the top three items that are important to you. Focus on these the most. By doing so, you can begin to feel at ease and better understand how to allocate the costs.

On the other hand, handling the budget can still be stressful. You do not have to manage the budget on your own. 27 Miracles offers services such as budget management and coordination of appointments with vendors. We are happy to work with you regardless of what budget you may have, and we believe that your wedding should be everything you dreamed of. Contact us today for a consultation.

Watch one of 27 Miracles Happy Brides at a final dress fitting, this is just one of the many places that the team of planners at 27 Miracles goes to in order to assist clients with their financial planning.

Valentine’s Day Celebrated World Wide

Valentine’s Day is celebrated worldwide by many as a day where people write each other cards, exchange gifts, and spread love and romance. What is the meaning of all this? Well, legends surround the history of this holiday, and according to Shannon Summers from Spoonful, “Valentine performed secret marriages for soldiers and their sweethearts…”  In this particular story, Valentine is portrayed as a priest who strongly approved of romantic relationships.

It is obvious that Valentine’s Day began due to the idea of romance, and it continues to be celebrated as a way to show how much you care for your loved ones. Throughout the year, work, school, and other commitments may stand in the way of planning romantic dates with your significant other; therefore, for couples around the world, this holiday means more than just the casual date to the movies or going out for a slice of pizza. This holiday is a day in which you can set aside time for a romantic evening with your significant other, focusing on each other and strengthening your relationship.

A great example of this is my dear brother, Ralph, and his longtime girlfriend, Kimberly. While living in a busy city, they each have hectic schedules consisting of work and other personal goals. This Valentine’s Day, 2/14/2014, happens to be on a Friday which is a great way for this couple to relax and enjoy each other’s company after such a busy and stressful week. The excitement builds up as the day approaches for Ralph and Kimberly, and a romantic dinner awaits them.

Are you counting down the days? 27 Miracles certainly is. What better way to end a stressful week than to relax with the one you love.

7 Things A Wedding Planner May Not Tell You

Every once in awhile 27 Miracles comes across good articles worth sharing to benefit our brides and grooms.

7 Things A Wedding Planner Might Not Tell You

7 Things A Wedding Planner May Not Tell You

By: Debbie Orwat is the Founder and Editor of Planner’s Lounge

http://theeverylastdetail.com/7-things-a-wedding-planner-might-not-tell-you/

As the founder of an online community of thousands of wedding planners, I often hear from planners about things they wish their brides knew. Often times these are things that we would love to tell our clients but usually can’t. But thanks to Every Last Detail, I’m able to share seven of these things that wedding planners might not tell you:

1. How emotionally involved we get in the wedding planning, design and coordination process.

We pour so much of our hearts and souls into every single event. We do get emotionally attached to some of our clients and families which makes us do a fantastic job because we truly care. You just can’t put a price tag on that.

2. How much of our income goes to taxes and business expenses before we pay ourselves.

Many of our clients work in professional careers but do not own their own business. Understanding that your wedding professionals only make 50-60% of what you pay us (after taxes and business expenses) may help brides and grooms understand why we charge what we do.

3. We cannot remember every single detail of your wedding every single minute of the day during the planning process.

Wedding planners may have 10-20 weddings that they are planning at one time, each with hundreds of details. That’s why we write everything down. It is also why we like to schedule meetings and phone calls in advance so we can refresh our memories first.

4. While we put everything we have into making sure our client’s wedding day is the best it can be, we have families and other obligations as well.

Many wedding planners set up office hours to deter brides and their families from calling their cell phone at all hours of the day and night. Planners often schedule certain weekends and evenings off and can’t always be available at the last minute. Many clients understand and respect this but we have a few who consistently think we should be available 24/7.

7 Things A Wedding Planner Might Not Tell You

5. If you hire your wedding planner after the planning process has begun, she or he needs to know every detail.

As soon as you hire your planner, the planner needs to know about all contracts already in place, vendor contact information and any problems you have come across with the venue, vendors or family during the planning process. For wedding coordinators to successfully pull off a wedding, we need to know details like the fact that the groom’s parents are divorced, and if you sit them close to each other, they will fight.  Or that you are having a problem getting in touch with a particular vendor.  Many brides, grooms and their families don’t fully understand that the wedding coordinator needs to know every single thing related to the wedding. Even if it’s not something that you think is a big deal, it’s better to err on the side of giving too much information.

6. We only have so much time and energy to get things done on the wedding day.

If our client has a two car loads of wedding details, favors and stationery to set up on the wedding day, we may need multiple assistants to get it all done in time. This is especially important to remember when there is a limited amount of time for setup at the venue. We may need to add on staff (and charge additional fees) to accommodate last minute requests as well. Even though we try to be superhuman, we can only physically accomplish a certain amount of work in a few hours.

7. We are an advocate for the bride and groom.

We are there to create your vision and make your day exactly what you have been dreaming about. We are also a buffer between you and all the details, vendors, mishaps and family members that would prevent both of you from completely enjoying and living in the beautiful moment of your wedding day.

These are just a few of the details that wedding planners would love to tell you but usually keep to themselves.. Many of us live and breathe our jobs and only want the best for our couples and their families. We love what we do and truly care about our clients.

Thank you Debbie for such a well documented article.

If you are planning a wedding and do not have the services of a wedding planner to help you on your special day, contact 27 Miracles, they can walk you through the process to make your day special.

Should You Hire A Wedding Planner

27 Miracles loves to share good articles when they come across it.  Today AAWP had this to share….

 

AAWP’s Weekly Words of Wedding Wisdom™
Copyright 2013 Deborah McCoy. All Rights Reserved.

Should YOU Hire a Wedding Planner?

Hi AAWPs: Today’s weddings are a major investment. The average cost, even in these hard times, is over $23,000. And that’s a lot of money to spend on a four- to five-hour party… If you were to invest $23,000 in the stock market, would you do so without the help of a professional? I think the analogy is the same when it comes to weddings. If you’re planning a wedding, it’s always best to seek the help of a professional, for more reasons than one. First, unless you’re an experienced party planner, a think a wedding could be more than intimidating. And second, a wedding happens only once. Make a mistake and you can’t host one the following week.

Ask Yourself These Questions… Examine the following scenarios to see if you might benefit from the services of a professional wedding planner: * You and your fiancé have great jobs and are well budgeted for the wedding, but working like you do, you hardly have the time to plan a wedding.

Solution: Wedding planners alleviate stress, legwork, aggravation and save time. * Your family lives out-of-town and is not able to help you, making for a very stressful situation.

Solution: Your wedding planner is there for you. Doing the job that your family members would have done. * You’re hosting a large wedding, 150 or more guests, and you’ve never planned one before.Solution: It’s wise to hire a wedding consultant for their experience and expertise. * You’re having a large (100+ guests), semi-formal or formal, traditional, at-home wedding.

Solution: At-home weddings require tons of planning and work including hiring caterers, dance floors, linens, silverware, entertainment and decorations…. The list is endless. For these types of weddings, a consultant is a must! * If you feel you can’t afford to make mistakes, or hire irresponsible vendors, or sign on the dotted line-not knowing if you’re protected–then a wedding consultant’s expertise is invaluable. * You save money with a consultant. After all, they know the ins and outs of wedding planning, where to cut costs and how to save dollars. *

INTRODUCING THE MOST COMFORTABLE BRIDAL SHOES EVER MADE
Dance instructor / choreographer designs and manufactures wedding shoes with fashion, fit and COMFORT Brides love how they feel. Stores love how they sell.

Boca Raton, FL (November 15, 2013) – Angela Nuran Gokturk, former professional dancer and choreographer, knows how high fashion shoes can torture women’s feet, especially when dancing. She targets the bridal industry since she has seen all too often the plight of the painful shoe for the bride from choreographing hundreds of first dances for engaged couples.

Angela has created the ultimate combination of fashion, support, versatility, fit and comfort. She designed a line of “hybrid” shoes especially for the bridal market. Her “pillow-top” footwear uses extra thick padding for all parts of the footbed insole. Clever brooch buckles at the toe band expand or tighten to adjust width, and
are interchangeable throughout her collection to customize the look for a bride’s ensemble. Styles with ankle straps also adjust, and fasten with easy, quick release “dancer” hooks. For beauty and practicality, the buckles are adorned with Swarovski® crystals which are not prong set and will not snag long gowns.

Additional couture enhancements offered directly through Angela Nuran Co. include her stunning hand applied Swarovski® Glitz designs and exquisite custom dye service. Handcrafted in luxurious dyeable Italian silk, the shoes are available in sizes 5 through 11. Non-slip sueded leather soles are perfect for dancing. Suggested retail starts at $290.

Her incredibly comfortable collection delivers many features that ballroom dance shoes do not have, including being manufactured to standard street shoe sizing and extra structure to improve stability.
The comfort of Angela’s shoes surpass any wedding, dance or dress shoe. Susan Metropoulos, owner of The Left Bank Jewelry & Uniquities in Chicago, the premier accessory boutique in the Midwest, says, “The Angela Nuran shoe collection is our most successful shoe line we’ve ever carried; brides love how they fit and feel, and we love how fast they sell!”

Angela has filled the void in the bridal / dance / party shoe market, delivering high quality footwear with incomparable comfort and irresistible versatility.

The Brilliance of Simon T. Bailey and His Vujà Dé Moment

By Rosie Moore, MBC™, 27 Miracles Wedding Consulting, Windermere, Fla.  Takes great pleasure in telling a a happy couple’s unique story through their wedding ceremony and reception.  Moore, who is also a registered legal nurse, is a certified travel agent for Cruise Brothers and certified Sandals specialist able to help couples with their travel needs.  She is bilingual in Spanish and a certified Berlitz translator.

Attendees at this year’s Business of Brides are in for a “brilliant” time with keynote speaker Simon T. Bailey. Bailey is the master of brilliant thinking and has shared his message with more than one million people worldwide. “When you reach a point that you are uncomfortable with life, change or be changed. Brilliant people focus on relationships and create experiences,” he says. SimonTBailey_2013

Bailey is the founder of the Brilliance Institute, a consulting firm that has worked with more than 400 Fortune 1000 companies—driving productivity, increasing accountability, sparking creativity, and winning the race to innovation. He is also the author of Release Your Inner Brilliance and The Vujà dé Moment! Shift from Average to Brilliant. His personal goal is to inspire 10 percent of the seven billion people on the planet to release their inner brilliance and create the future, a goal that means his keynote at annual conference will inspire attendees to get up and pursue their dreams. Wedding Planner Magazine recently caught up with him and asked him to share his insight.

WPM: You are known for being a compelling business thought leader in the wedding and event industry and a teacher of how to creatively release leadership and organizational brilliance. What are the qualities of a good leader?
Bailey: A good leader is a good listener, a life-long learner, a person who leads from a servant mindset, not just someone who tells people what to do. It is someone that can make people the best they can be.

WPM: Are leaders born, or can they be developed?
Bailey: Leaders can be developed with proper attitude and a willingness to submit the need to be right. They have to be self-aware. A leader has to have the willingness to want to get better. It is a process in the making.

release your brilliance hc c

WPM: Does everyone have an inner brilliance? If so, how can they unlock it?
Bailey: Yes, everyone has an inner brilliance. To find it, they need to ask four questions:
Where have I been?
Why am I here?
What can I do?
Where am I going?
They need to create an action plan, and get up and pursue the dream they have.

WPM: How many people achieve this inner brilliance?
Bailey: Less than 10 percent achieve inner brilliance. Because inner brilliance requires deeper work and consistent follow up, some people start and stop. Some get close and stop, because they think it’s not worth it so they quit. You have to believe in it.

WPM: What is a vujà dé moment?
Bailey: A vujà dé moment is when a person decides to create his or her own future instead of waiting for the future to be created. It is a twist on conventional wisdom. It is making the shift from average to brilliant. It’s when you wake up from the deep hibernation of average living and of waiting for things to change. It’s a feeling of confidence about what lies ahead.

VujaDeMoment_FrontCover

WPM: What is the Brilliance Institute? How do you enroll? What are the benefits and costs?
Bailey: The Brilliance Institute is a consulting company with an online college curriculum. Harrison College is an online leadership program that will provide high potential professionals with powerful leadership competencies to navigate their careers. Students receive techniques to make them brilliant at work and life. You can enroll at http://www.SimonTBailey.com. You will benefit by learning how to move an organization forward. The curriculum will show you how to embrace change and create breakthroughs. It is a six-week course online, and the cost is $1,997.

WPM: What advice do you have for planners wanting to be successful?
Bailey: For planners wanting to be successful, I recommend they create a board of directors—not with planners but with other wedding vendors and people outside their industry. This helps create ideas on what may work in a different wedding market/industry other than planning. ••

Planning a wedding involves a seemingly endless amount of work, and can be a bit overwhelming in the months and weeks leading up to your wedding. Some people are lucky enough to be able to pass a lot of the burden on to friends, family, or even a wedding planner – but, regardless of how much help you enlist, you will still be involved in many aspects of planning your own wedding. And, along the way, you will likely find that it is some of the smaller details over which you have the most control. With that in mind, here are a few thoughts that might be helpful with planning certain details of your wedding ceremony.

 

Bridesmaids Dresses

In many cases, figuring out the design and style of the bridesmaids’ dresses can be one of the trickiest parts of planning the wedding! The simple fact is, with traditional bridesmaids’ dresses, it is hard to satisfy all of your friends and family members that may be acting as bridesmaids at the wedding. Fortunately, however, a (HYPERLINK) http://www.weddingbee.com/2012/06/19/bridesmaids-dresses-trends/ (ANCHOR) “new trend emerging” in these dresses makes the whole process a lot easier. These days, it is becoming fairly common for bridesmaids’ dresses to match in colour, but not necessarily in style. This way, your bridal party can appear unified, and can blend in beautifully with the ceremony, but each individual bridesmaid can choose a flattering and comfortable style for herself!

 

Wedding Rings

While most people envision wedding bands as fairly traditional, and fairly basic in appearance, you may want to take the time to make sure that you and your future spouse are absolutely as happy as you can be with your wedding rings. When you set about choosing wedding rings, you may find that there are more options than you realized, and this can complicate the process. For example, if you look at a site like (HYPERLINK) http://www.77diamonds.com/engagement-rings.htm (ANCHOR) “77 Diamonds”, you will discover several customization options for wedding bands, from the type of metal used, to the thickness of the rings, to the option of having diamonds set in the rings. These are details many people don’t anticipate when planning weddings, so this is worth looking into in advance.

 

Wedding Cake

Choosing the right wedding cake can also be a very tricky concept that takes a surprising amount of time. In fact, there are some current trends leading people to avoid the process altogether and go for (HYPERLINK) http://blog.weddingpaperdivas.com/top-alternative-wedding-desserts (ANCHOR) “alternative desserts” – such as selections of cupcakes or pies – instead. Wedding cakes are traditional as ornaments at receptions, but they are also cumbersome, expensive, and often not as delicious as they look. It is very important to take the time to look at several different cake options, and also to taste test your final choices, and consider alternative desserts. This may not seem important in advance, while you are getting your guest list and venues together – but no one wants to be stuck with a bad wedding cake when the big day arrives!
