ABC Meeting Design Concepts for Your Weddings and Events

The planners at the Association of Bridal Consultants want to be at the forefront of education at all times so they can have fresh new ideas for their clients.  What better way to stay ahead of the game than to have a meeting in one of the largest warehouses there is in Central Florida;  A Chair Affair where they have every imaginable chair, charger, cake stand and so much more! But you can’t leave out the linens, color and texture combined with the accessories to make a tablescape gorgeous on your event day.  Jennifer from Over the Top Linens had a fabulous presentation that included show and tell for all the planners and designers present that day.

Jennifer spoke about the Five Fabulous Design Tips:

  1. Keep your key words in mind
  2. Have faith that all your efforts will be worth it and you selected the right vendors
  3. Share something personal and unique
  4. Tell the story
  5. Prioritize what is important and keep the look consistent
  6. Be a dream team, but remember the bride(client) is the BOSS!

Jennifer touched on the trends that we are seeing in 2016:

  1. Going glam
  2. Shades of treasure
  3. Dramatic fashion
  4. Geometric patterns
  5. Exotic elegance
  6. Simple photography
  7. Tourist for a day

See the pictures of some of the designs created right there at A Chair Affair with Jennifer from Over the Top Linens and Sharon from A  Chair Affair. Tracey from Enchanting Events tied all of the information together and took us to the planner’s favorite moment when she gets to put the design ideas  together with the client’s vision for the presentation to the client of what is “THE VISION” the moment that a bride awaits to see her dream wedding come true!

We all enjoyed a great Italian buffet dinner from Del Dio’s Restaurant on the beautiful china from A Chair Affair.  Following our presentation, came the dessert reveal, WOW! Bedazzle your eyes  with cake and desserts from Cut the Cake and Macaroons from the Macaroon Place!

Despite the torrential downpour that evening, nothing could keep the planners from attending this fabulous event that would enrich the lives of their future clients. Planners are like the mail carriers, neither rain, sleet or snow will keep them away from learning and planning your beautiful event.  It’s a good thing we just deal with heat and hurricanes in Florida!

When it was time to enter the Venetian ballroom, the doors slowly opened and it was like walking in to a dream.  There were Oohs and Ahhs at the decor.  The linens from ABC member Tracey Smith with Enchanting Events were a delicate ivory color.  The chivari chairs from Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals matched perfectly.

As we entered the room Steve Dunlop our MC thought he would serenade us with authentic Italian music. How perfect! As we looked around the room there were uplights in hues of purple to match the theme we were going for .

ABC-Networking-WM-9.24.15-41

Our luncheon started with our speaker Nancy Lehman explaining the different wines and as we had each entree’ we were able to try a different type of wine.  Nancy educated us on the proper way to hold a wine glass, which foods to pare the wine with and different ideas for planners to offer their clients as they enter a new life together. The ideas were amazing.

First course for lunch was a deluxe antipasto

You can’t have Italian food and not benefit from authentic Italian dessert! Tiramisu anyone?

Christmas Countdown Day 4 Write a love Note

In this busy holiday season we get wrapped up in shopping, baking, parties and other exciting things during the holidays.  Take a moment to tell your kids and your sweetheart that you love them.  Don’t text it, write it down on a piece of paper and place it somewhere where they will see it.  We live in a world of instant technology and social media, reserve those displays of affection for private and hand write those notes!

Kessinger (45)Kessinger (66)There is a reason why brides and grooms write special letters to each other on the day of their wedding and have them delivered when they have not seen each other in almost 24 hours.

Kaleb my son, may not have been able to read at this time, but he knows that there is always a card to look for in a gift!

Christmas Countdown Day 1 Start a Tradition

Christmas time is a time to start your own family traditions.  As you and your new spouse start out your life, you will each have traditions that you both grew up doing.  Talk about those traditions and what you liked about each one, then start your own.  “Traditions provide a sense of belonging, ” says Barbara Fiese.  It can be as simple as creating a holiday dish together, buying a new ornament and hanging it together or watching a favorite movie that puts you in the holiday spirit.  Whatever you do, make it special so that it can help you remember that the reason we celebrate Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus! Merry Christmas!

27 Miracles loves to see their couples celebrating family traditions!

Why Do Jewish Couples Break a Glass At Their Wedding?

Why do Jewish couples break a glass at their wedding?

In Jewish tradition, the “breaking of the glass” is meant to recreate the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, to remind the couple and their guests that even in times of celebration, their people have suffered. Even if you aren’t Jewish, it’s important to remember that there can be no shadows without the light.

Jhanay and Deandre’s Dream Wedding

Marcus Moore, with Sensational Ceremonies had the privilege of performing the wedding ceremony of Jhanay and Deandre  on February 23, 2014.  I had been putting off writing her story, just because we get busy in our life.  But this morning I felt a compelling need to sit at my computer and share her story with you . Read until the end, her story will touch you.  What is so special about this wedding?  Read The Dream team’s story about Jhanay and you will see.

“On Friday, February 8 2014, Jamie Holmes, Founder of Jamie’s Dream Team, had the privilege to meet a wonderful mother by the name if Jhanay along with her family at Magee Women’s Hospital of UPMC.

Jhanay, who is a 28 year-old loving mother, with two amazing young sons, and with a very caring extended family.   Jhanay’s health issues started for her at the age of 25 with breast cancer, and has since spread to her spine, lungs and brain.  Unfortunately the doctors have given her no a chance for full recover.   However, Jamie’s Dream Team stepped up to give her that one dream she had, which was to take her two sons, age 5 and 10, to Walt Disney World, like the memories she had as a child with her family.

Then on Thursday, February 13 2014, Jhanay informed Jamie’s Dream Team, that her long-term boyfriend had proposed and that she and DeAndre are planning a surprise wedding for the family while in the Orlando area.   Again Jamie’s Dream Team stepped up to plan a wedding in less than 10 days.

However thanks to the amazing Pittsburghers who made donations and for the amazing wedding vendors in Florida, not only did Jhanay have a wedding of her dreams on Sunday February 23, 2014, but she was surrounded by her wonderful and loving family.

Love Never Felt So Good

When you hear someone say “the King of Pop,” what comes to mind? Of course, the King of Pop is the one and only Michael Jackson. If you are looking for an upbeat reception song that will get your wedding guests to dance, a Michael Jackson song will do the trick.

“Love Never Felt So Good” is a song by Michael Jackson that was first recorded in 1983. It was recently released this past May, now featuring Justin Timberlake. The release of this song does not disappoint. “Love Never Felt So Good” is a lively song describing a love like no other.

Listen to “Love Never Felt So Good,” and watch the official music video below.

For all the Michael Jackson fans, a unique experience can be added to your wedding. Instead of just playing Michael Jackson songs during your wedding reception, you can also add entertainment by having a Michael Jackson tribute artist perform. Watch Rico – Michael Jackson wow crowds with his spectacular performances below (this is a tribute to the different charities that he performs for, hospitals, nursing homes, children’s convalescent centers and schools)

Wondering how you can have entertainment such as this at your wedding? Visit our website  to find out more information about Rico – Michael Jackson, world’s most exciting Michael Jackson tribute artist. Also, this talented entertainer will be performing at The Gift of Life Black Tie Affair, September 13, 2014.
