Giving Back

As wedding season begins, I think about all of the opportunities I had over the past year. I have been fortunate to work with great vendors and even greater clients. Not everyone is able to have the best of the best, but they still deserve to have a great wedding. We, at Something Classic Events, feel that having a wedding coordinator is no longer a luxury but a necessity on your wedding day. That said, not everyone is able to afford a professional, experienced wedding planner so that is where our giveaway comes in. We have done this giveaway each year and I feel it is our way to give back. We are able to provide one couple with a professional planner so they are able to fully enjoy their wedding day. So without further ado, we introduce our 2010 Something Borrowed Package giveaway.

{my life}

In an effort to post more about myself, instead of just weddings, I am going to try to give you a little glimpse into my life. Hopefully this will enable you to know more about me and my family. So here we go!!

Sunday was Valentine's Day and we made special food for our little girl every meal that day - heart shaped pancakes, heart shaped peanut butter and jelly and heart shaped grilled cheese. For the rest of the week, she has been asking for everything to be served in heart shapes...cheese, apples, quesadilla, crackers...anything and everything. Unfortunately, I don't have a really small cookie cutter heart so some things she had to eat in the shape they come in.

My husband and I have been enjoying watching the Olympics. It also means we have been very sleepy this week. Our favorites have been the half pipe competitons. As a snowboarder myself {and not very good, if I may add}, I cannot believe some of the tricks they are pulling out. I don't think I could ever ever do any of the tricks they are doing - let along make it to the edge of the half pipe without falling. It is amazing!

I love to bake, and I mean love it! I don't bake too often because they end up going to waste {we aren't huge into cookies and cakes}. So when I have the opportunity to bake for other people, I take full advantage of it. This week, I need to bake some cookies and I decided I was going to do sugar cookies. I also decided I wanted to frost them in a way I have never tried - flooding. My obession, yes obession, with this type of icing came from a blog I follow called Bake at 350. She has some AMAZING cookies on the site. Anyway, I used her cookie and icing recipe and I think they came out great - at least for a first attempt. I was pretty impressed with myself. After reading some of the comments on her blog, I was scared about icing them. It seemed like the littlest thing could throw them off - temperature, humidity or overbeating. Luckily, I seemed to dodge all of these. Although I could use some more practice. Below are some pictures of my creations!

Wordless Wednesday (a day late...and a few words)

I follow a TON of blogs, really it is insane, my google reader constantly reminds me that I have over 1000 unread entries. But quite a few of the bloggers do a feature on Wednesday called Wordless Wednesday. I wanted to join so here is my first post.

The pictures is from a photographer I follow, Shannon Montez. She says it is not photoshopped and is SOC (straight out of the camera). I LOVE it and would to know how she did it (and secretly wish I could)! Any photographers want to fill me in?

Save the Dates

Also known as STD's, although I prefer not to call them that, doesn't sound good. Save the Dates are something you send to your guest list anywhere from six months to eight months, even one year, before your wedding day. This is an opportunity to inform your guests (especially out of town guests) when and where your wedding will be so they can plan accordingly. If you have a website, it is a good idea to include it on your save the date. Guests are then able to see more information about your wedding, including times and locations of your ceremony and reception. You should put your room block information on your website, so out of town guests can find the hotels you have blocks at and be able to book rooms. Also, this can give guests an idea of what to expect at the wedding in terms of color and/or style. If you have not yet decided on what that will be, then send something simple. If you have decided, make sure your save the date will match the rest of your stationary items, including your invite and inserts, program, escort card, and menu - make sure they have a coheasive look.

There are a TON of different save the dates out there and I wanted to share some different and creative ones with you.

Not sure I would recommend this, but it still is a little fun!

LOVE this!

What do you do for your save the date? Share you ideas with everyone! Have fun and be creative!

I have an obession with paper products, it's a sickness. I love the idea of scrapbooking and card making, but when I sit down to do it (I haven't sat down to do this in a loooooong time), I go blank and don't know where to start. When I was getting married, I made all of our invitations, around 150 of them. I was very very anal about how they looked, I even hot glued the bows so they would lay just right. My husband thought I was nuts but I loved it doing. Sometimes I think about doing custom invites for my clients, but I don't know where I would find the time. So, I leave that to the invitiation designers.

Today, I am joining with Invite Only to host a special discount on invitations for my blog readers. Amanda was a bride of mine a few years ago and since has started her own custom stationary business. Here is what she has to say about herself and her business:

"In December 2005, I was proposed to by the man of my dreams. We spent the next 20 months planning and preparing for our big day. My favorite part (besides the " I DO's", of course) was creating our invitations. It allowed us to give our guests a preview of our special day.

I have always enjoyed creating invitations for all of life's occasions. Invite Only has given me the opportunity to share my creativity with others and to help bring the vision of their event to life. Invitations set the tone and create excitement for your event. I want to make your first impression a great one!

At Invite Only, we will work with you to create not only a special invitation for your event, but a keepsake that you and your guests will cherish forever!"

So her speical for my blog readers is this:

Sweetheart Special:
I will be offering a 15% discount on orders placed through February 15th. The first three brides to place their invitation order prior to February 15th will receive 25% off of their order!

How awesome is that!! She does fantastic work and is able to help you come up with a custom design that showcases your wedding to your guests. I would definitely take advantage of this deal.
