Should You Hire a Wedding Planner?


Once the excitement from the proposal dies down, the day comes when you have to start planning the wedding. Though stressful, it’s unavoidable. But if you’re like most brides, you really don’t have the time or the right strategy to get started and it can become overwhelming quickly. Where should you have the reception? Should you serve chicken or fish? Should you have it outdoors or inside; what if it rains? Your wedding will likely be the most elaborate and expensive party that you will ever host, and you want it to be perfect. To make sure that the wedding day goes off without a hitch, many brides are now choosing to hire a wedding planner to help sort out the chaos.

Wedding planners used to be assistants that were only enjoyed as a luxury. Today, however, these professional event consultants allow for you even save money on your big day by helping you get everything done right the first time around. Not to mention, they can help you stick to your budget throughout the entire process.

Plus, the scope of the planner’s involvement in your wedding is entirely up to you. You can have the consultant plan as much or as little as you desire. If you find that you are a “hands on” type of bride and want to do the planning yourself you can still enjoy the benefits of a wedding planner by selecting only the services you need. It’s that simple.

Did you hire a wedding consultant or wedding planner for your day? Why or why not?

Maggie and Peter Finally Marry!

It’s true – they took the plunge! According to reports from People magazine, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard finally got married on May 2 in a beautiful chapel in Brindisi, Italy. (By the way, Italy seems to be the newest wedding hot spot for the stars. Take for example Salma Hayek choosing to host her lavish celebration in Venice just a week or two prior.) With all of this jet setting by the stars, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more and more couples trekking to distant locations to exchange their vows.

Maggie and Peter

While many people saw this coming for quite some time, as Maggie and Peter have been together for over seven years and have a two year old daughter, Ramona, we’re still delighted to finally get to celebrate the occasion. This small and intimate affair was shared with forty of the couple’s closest friends and family, including star couple Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal, in a fairy-tale setting that is classic of Maggie’s style. Not to mention, the low profile affair was a refreshing departure from the opulent weddings that so many Hollywood couples choose. Now if only we could see the photos…

Married On Myspace

Do you love social networking?
How about enough to make it part of your wedding day?

Married On MySpace is a new reality video series that will chronicle one couple’s journey to their wedding day, with MySpace members driving much of the decision-making in planning the event. From flowers to the gown, this couple is putting the decision making power in the hands of the public.

So how exactly does Married on MySpace work?

The process starts with couples submitting videos to MySpace and users voting on who should be featured. Once that has been determined, MySpace users vote on other aspects of the event, like selecting what the bride and groom wear, where they celebrate their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the wedding location. But besides voting, there are plenty of other activities for MySpace users to enjoy on the site. Feel free to participate in forums, comment on the couples, and sign the guest book.

In all, there will be 13 web episodes of Married on MySpace, culminating in the selected couple’s wedding day. Right now, we’re down to three couples!

So let us know, what do you think of Married on MySpace? Would it be something that you would try?

Bringing Back The Vintage With Modern Vintage Events is one of our all-time favorite blogs. They do often post on wedding-related topics, but they’re all things awesomely vintage for every event and occasion you can think of. Modern Vintage Events has even been featured on Style Me Pretty, and WKB, the (oh so secret) charming lady behind ModernVintageEvents was asked to be a part of Bliss Events Group as Bliss New York’s Wedding and Event Producer!

We love her “Throw A Wine and Chocolate Pairing Party At Home”, where she let’s us in on a $49 Napa Style Brix Chocolate gift set! We’re all about wine and chocolate parties – they make for perfect engagement parties and bridal showers.
