Terri & Jim

The second I met Terri & Jim (well he was buying coffee), I knew their entire life story and loved it. She opened up to me like we have known each other forever and this is one of my favorite parts about meeting them. Although I was not hired yet, I could tell by the way Terri and I clicked that I was most likely their new wedding planner. By the time Jim got back with the coffee (5 minutes later), I knew how they met, who was in their wedding, who I needed to give extra attention to, and what exactly they needed help with. Going back to how they met, it was what I call the modern “traditional” way of meeting, just like many of my couples this year have all experienced. Yes they met online, fell in love, and got married. I am not going to bother with real statistics but going by my wedding bookings this year 70 percent of couples that booked me as their wedding planner, met online. As a side note to all you singles out there, I feel this is a very efficient way of meeting your future spouse as long as you don’t use Tinder or Plenty of Fish.

Anyways, Terri and Jim spoke to each other for a while before actually meeting face to face. In fact, Terri was out of town celebrating her parents wedding anniversary when they decided to go on their first date. Which happened to be the day she returned on her parents anniversary April 20th, 2013. They were both instantly fond of each other and so glad that neither one was “catfished”. Within minutes they were already planning their second date for later in the week but couldn’t resist and met up the following day. These two were definitely meant to be. Jim has a very laid-back personality which is perfect for Terri who is very detailed but needs a little help figuring out exactly what she wants. They chose to marry 2 years to their first meeting (also her parents anniversary). I had the pleasure of planning their wedding which took place in a location that hasn’t had many weddings. Their ceremony was the first that took place on the stage at Tivoli Village. They hired Cameron Calloway, a local acoustic guitarist, to perform at both the ceremony and reception. He did a magnificent job throughout both especially as Terri walked down the aisle to him singing, Bret Dennon “By and By”. Terri loved it so much she had him sing it again for her and Jim to dance to and asked for it on iTunes. The ceremony turned out so beautiful with Pastor Pete from Elegant Weddings Las Vegas officiating. He was perfect for them and always adds in something so meaningful to the bride and groom. They chose to do a wine ceremony which fit since Terri is a huge wine lover and since Jim met her, he moved on from specialty beers to become a wine officiantado. They chose to lock the letters into a box with a phenomenal bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and since they can’t wait too long per their instinct, they will open them on their first anniversary.

For the reception, they chose to have it in one of their favorite places, The View Bar in Tivoli Village. This was the perfect spot for a guest list of nearly 50 to enjoy the acoustic sounds of Cameron while mingling with each other. The restaurant itself has a rustic look to it and offers so much decor that we barely had to do anything to the space. We did have a few centerpieces made up for the tables and a beautiful cake by Sweet Lucys Confections that actually sat on their gorgeous, rustic piano. The ambiance was very laid back just like the couple and rustic. I personally loved this wedding venue and holding any event there. It is tapas style, so they started with a cheese display, went through cold tapas, then hot tapas, and ended with decedent desserts to serve along with the cake. The set up of the buffet was gorgeous wooden pieces to tie into the overall decor of the location. Terri & Jim wanted to do something special for her parents since it was also their anniversary so they gave them a very sweet engraved frame to hold a picture of them along from their wedding and one of Terri and Jim for the other side. At the end of the night, Terri and Jim offered cute little popcorn favors from Popcorn Girl that said “All because he popped the question”. Throughout the entire wedding, we also had the pleasure of working with two very talented photographers Susie & Will from susiesandwillpictures.com. They are very professional and truly amazing at what they do. All of the photos in this blog were provided by them.

Wedding Must Haves Couples Tend to Forget

las vegas wedding planners, wedding coordinators las vegas

Don’t forget these simple details

As everyone knows and says, planning a wedding can be extremely stressful. Something that only adds to the stress is last minute things that come up in which the couple either overlooks or since they haven’t been married doesn’t even know they need. My suggestion to anyone getting married of course is to hire a wedding planner or at very least a day of coordinator to prevent any stress from happening. However, if this is not in your budget please feel free to read on for the little things couples usually forget.

1. The Rings- now of course this is something that is purchased far in advance but the day of your wedding this is one of the most forgetful items. I don’t know if it’s the excitement of the whole thing or what but this happens often. Try to assign someone the week of your wedding to be in charge of both wedding rings this way they will show up and be together.

2. Accessories- Sure the tux and dress arrive safely but what about the little things. The ties, socks, veil, earrings, garter, shoes, everything that puts your entire outfit together. Three quick stories I have on this is one, our wedding I packed both of our outfits from head to toe, with extra accessories in case I didn’t like something. Come the next afternoon as my future hubby is getting dressed he calls my maid of honor to ask where the tie was. Of course I left it at home. The only thing that is definitely going to stand out if he didn’t have. Luckily for us, we lived 2 minutes away and best man came to the rescue. A wedding I planned, thank goodness the bride woke up with butterflies at 5 am because as she was laying out her accessories for the photographers she realized her veil was at her sister’s house in Houston, Texas (we were in Vegas). Luckily a friend didn’t have his flight until a few hours later and was able to get the veil in time for his flight and have it well before the wedding started. On a side note, by hiring us I would have ran to the store myself and found the exact veil or one closest to it for her. Last one of my grooms forgot a pair of socks for the big day. Since he was closest to Crystals he went over only to buy a $45 pair of designer socks… that ended up being close to knee highs on him. It was hilarious and I can only imagine his brides face that night when she saw them. I send out a checklist of things to remember but it is always best to designate a trustworthy bridal party or family member to keep this stuff safe.

3. Unity Ceremony items- whether they be custom traditions for your culture or something fun to add into the ceremony, don’t forget these items. Most are purchased by the couple and this is a reason I strongly agree to having a wedding coordinator because you can make them responsible for these items. You don’t want your officiant to call you up for the sand ceremony and have vases but no sand to unite with.

4. Place cards- If you are having a sit down dinner where guests choose what they are having you MUST have place cards. I have yet to find a venue that doesn’t require them. Each guest receives a place card and there is always a “secret” symbol on them to designate who has fish, beef, or chicken. A classy way of doing this is by simply adding a different color pearl or rhinestone for each (i.e. fish-white, beef-black, chicken-wedding color) You can always have place cards if you don’t have your guests choose but couples you must have them if they do. If you have a buffet or family style then you may opt out for the extra work in place cards and just do a poster seating chart. Many places also do not set these up for you, so if you want your family and friends to relax on your wedding day this is also a good reason to hire a wedding coordinator.

5. Table Numbers- You rented all your centerpieces, linen, etc, but what about your table numbers? Some rental companies offer table numbers as well but couples tend to forget until the very last minute (just like the place cards) that these are needed. If you have assigned seating then you definitely need either table numbers, books, however you decide your guests will find their seats make sure you actually show this within the centerpieces.

6. Guestbook- Something else you need to bring yourself and set up (or have your wedding coordinator which yes many venues give you a coordinator but they are mostly for the ceremony and many will not set up additional items for you). Guestbooks are all sorts of items from a traditional book, photo book, monogram letter, anything to be unique and stand out. You don’t want to forget this because although guests RSVP to your weddings, you want to know who actually showed up. Don’t forget if you choose something unique to make sure you have a pen that writes well on it.

7. Card box- If you are allowing guest to bring gifts to your wedding then you must have a spot for them to put it. Most guests typically bring cards and there are tons of cute ways to display a card box. Find something that fits the theme of your wedding. Some rental companies offer a few standard boxes but go unique and you can keep it as home decor after. This also needs to be set up by you.

8. Any additional decor items- In the Pinterest world we live in today, it is typical for couples to find all these little add ons to decor that they want to buy instead of rent. This is a great addition to your wedding decorations, typically cost effective, and looks great. However, any of these items will also need someone to set up. As a wedding planner I will be honest to say there hasn’t been a wedding yet that I have planned that the bed of our truck wasn’t filled with extra things the couple had for their wedding. I am not saying all planners are open to sharing their spare room with items you mail to them but I am very considerate of out of town guests and I don’t mind having items sent to the house. I love helping set up the room and making it just as you wish.

It is very important to keep these things always in the back of your mind throughout the planning process. Keep notes on everything you buy for your wedding and what you need to bring so you don’t forget. Create your own checklist with these items and I would even assign someone you trust to keep them all together. I know I am a wedding planner but even if I wasn’t, I highly suggest hiring a day of coordinator to put everything together.  Many of the venues you use have coordinators, however, their job doesn’t include setting up your place cards, DIY decor, and table numbers.  It is best to hire someone so that you do not have to have your family members or bridal party set up before the ceremony. I have had lots of requests for day of coordination lately but I think many couples are confused at what this entails. We can’t come right before the ceremony and leave after your first dance (at least I do not). We are there hours before setting up the space, making sure all your vendors know what they are doing and arrive on time. We set up all your DIY stuff and extra decor. We have to be in contact with you and your vendors at least a month prior to make sure everyone is on the same page. You can hire a coordinator that may only show up for your ceremony but why even hire them. Research exactly what you are getting before you book anyone, including all vendors and venues. There are tons of people out there who give great breaks on pricing but just remember, you get what you pay for. Desirable Events by Desi goes above and beyond expectations because we want you book many more events with us.

How to choose your Bridesmaids

wedding planner las vegas

Standing up in someone’s wedding to many people means spending lots of money on dresses, shoes, hair, makeup, etc. We really seemed to lose touch in why bridesmaids and Maid of Honors are part of the wedding. I always get brides who say they can’t choose between people to have by their side. Well it’s simple, if you haven’t talked to someone in years, you probably do not want to have them in your wedding, even if you were in preschool together. People change over the years especially after their mid twenties so someone who shared all your secrets and interests when you were younger, may not have the same views today. Here’s a list of ideas to think about when choosing your bridesmaids.

1. Choose someone that puts you first- This by far the most important characteristic in a bridesmaid. You need someone that isn’t negative and doesn’t complain about how much they are spending. You want someone that is just as loving and caring to you as the day you met them. Someone who even if they hate the bridesmaid dress, colors of your wedding, or the location of you wedding will say how much they love and adore everything. Negativity is the most important thing to keep out of your sight. By choosing someone that is negative will only eventually cause problems for you but can also affect your relationship to your fiancé. I have seen too many brides stress out for months before their wedding until the day of by choosing Miss Negative Nancy to stand up.

2. Someone who supports your relationship- I see this all the time, Girls are always in competition with each other no matter how close they are. If you have a friend who always talks poorly of your fiancé or doesn’t see how you two will end up with each other then you must not have her in your wedding. In fact, you shouldn’t even have them at your wedding or in your life anymore. It is important to keep those who care not only about you but also your future spouse.

3. Carefree friend- Another very important quality in a bridesmaid is someone who doesn’t care what you are serving for food. Someone who loves house wine and house liquor. You don’t want someone telling you that you need to have what “they like” in order for them to be part of your wedding. Always remember, it is YOUR wedding and it’s between you and your fiancé on choosing the options for your day. You don’t need to listen to bickering snobs about what they think makes your wedding perfect.

4. Someone who will help- Lots of details go into wedding planning and of course this is why I have my job. I love wedding planning and if you need a planner you can definitely count on me. However, if you can’t afford a planner or think you do not need one, you definitely need bridesmaids to be by your side throughout everything. There’s many events that lead up to a wedding which the bride and groom should have minimal planning in. This is what they bridesmaids are for. Think of your closest and most creative friends and how they can help you with planning all of these events. There’s the engagement party, bridal shower, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinner. Some of these things of course your parents will help plan but you want bridesmaids to bring the new, modern “Pinterest” ideas to your events.

5. Choose someone who can afford it- We all know weddings are pricey but the same goes for someone standing up in a wedding. From dresses to shoes, to hair and makeup, to travel expenses, make sure you choose someone that can afford it. Your friends that you feel like you are leaving out will not be hurt if they can’t afford it. In some cases, it is better to not ask and make them feel embarrassed to decline because of costs.

Choosing maids can be difficult but honestly my main thing is this, think of those who you speak to daily whether they are next door or thousands of miles away. This idea is similar to hiring someone for a job. They need to be by your side and help with whatever you need. Everyone thinks they will hurt someone and from time to time it happens. Honestly most people who are chosen clearly are honored to take part in the wedding but there are others that do feel like they lucked out by saving money and only being a guest. It can be expensive to take part in a wedding so don’t feel like leaving someone out is a bad thing.
Here’s a little bit in choosing a Maid/Matron of Honor. The main reasons why you have a maid of honor is for support, keeping everyone together, and being there when you need her.

By choosing a Maid of Honor that you are close with now (not 20 years ago), they understand your style, vision, expectations, and YOU! it’s similar to what I said above, this person just has a little more responsibility. I’m pretty sure after all those years your vision of marrying someone from N’SYNC and having your wedding at your gorgeous mansion or on a secret island isn’t really how your wedding is playing out. You need someone that knows you well today and can be there for you when you need advice. She also needs to support you with a positive attitude so if they are a super opinionated friend, tell them you love them but they can be a bridesmaid or guest. You get enough unwelcome opinions from in laws and family that you don’t need your number one go to support system to give you more unnecessary advice. You want someone who when you choose a bridesmaid dress that may not be flattering or her style will tell you how much she loves it and tell your other bridesmaids they love it too. When you get a call from you in laws telling you they just invited another 20 people neither you or your fiancé has met but you are the ones paying for your “intimate” wedding, she’s there for you and would even go out of her way to let your family know it’s not about them that it is your wedding day. This is the support system you need. A perfect Maid of honor.

Modern and Fun Guest book Ideas

How many times do people really go through a guestbook and read what people wrote? Do we really display these in our homes for everyone to come over and see? Chances are you answered I read it once or never, and no it is in storage somewhere. There is no need for these boring traditional books that no one looks at anymore.  Here are fun and unique ways for your guests to enjoy being welcomed to your wedding and also double as adorable home decor after for houseguests to enjoy.

1. Puzzle Pieces- Guests will each sign I piece of the puzzle then on a stay home “date night” you are your spouse can put it together.  Makes for really cute wall decor too!

2.  Photobook of your Engagement Photos- Engagement photos are fun and really popular now a days but typically most couples only use one or two for their Save the Dates and that is it.  Why not get your moneys worth by creating a picture/guest book combo? Really cute idea and this is great to display in your home.guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

3.  Artwork- if you are a couple that loves art or just want your guests to enjoy doing something different at your wedding these pieces are great.  Below is the thumbprint photo where guests leave their prints and initials.  It’s definitely fun but tricky to tell which guest is who.  Makes for a cute wall photo after the wedding.  Another way is to have a blank Canvas with your monogram and have guests sign their names in paint.guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

4.  Wishing Stones- this is such a cute idea and actually something I wanted to do.  However, you have to make sure you find the correct stones you can write on.  I came up with this idea too late for my wedding so as long as you have time you can pretty much find them anywhere (just not in your yard of course).  After guests sign them you can add them to vases and they make a gorgeous centerpiece for your dining room.

5. Wine Corks- In my opinion wine weddings are timeless.  There are so many evolving ways to keep this “vintage” tradition with a modern twist.  I love wine weddings and enjoy creating centerpieces and place cards for them.  If you are the wine lover then this is an adorable, easy, and affordable guestbook.  All you have to do is collect corks as you drink wine.  guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

6.  Picture frame with Border for signing.  For the wedding you can add an engagement photo to get the use out of them 😉 But after all your guests sign it and you get your weddings photos back, mount this with your favorite photo. guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

7.  Bench- If your spouse is handy have him build you a bench adn carve your monogram or initials into it.  Then have guests sign right on it.  This is the perfect piece for your backyard or foyer!guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

8. Tree stump- Having a rustic wedding? These decorative tree stumps are such a cute idea to tie your guest book into your theme.  You can even get them made with your monogram in the center.  This is very cute piece to add as a centerpiece to the dining table at your home.guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

9.  Game Pieces- Are you a board game loving couple? Perfect idea is to get your favorite game board and have guests sign it.  Every time you have guests over be sure to play the game so they can enjoy all the words of wisdom your guests provided at your wedding.guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings 10.  Globe- Couples that love traveling, are from two different countries, or just love globes this is for you.  Guests can sign by where they are from, love to travel to, or where they wish to go.  Any ideas so that you both get great ideas for your future vacations.  Bonus: If there’s enough space have them write their favorite restaurant, hotel, or hangout spot in that area! guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings 11.  Note cards/ library cards- This is adorable especially for those of you who are teachers.  Guests can pick a catergory they think they know the best advice about and leave you a message.  Throughout your marriage anytime you seek advice just go through your little files and take a pick.  Find the right display and it doubles as home decor as well.guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

12.  Beach Chair- Similar to the bench, a beach chair is perfect for the surfers or those of you fortunate enough to live on the beach.  Even if you are like me and wish you were always on the beach this chair can make you feel that way and give you advice throughout your daily lounging.  guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings 13.  Initial- A fancy initial is always a cute decoration for your home.  It’s always fun (besides changing your credit cards, legal name, and going to the DMV) changing your last name to something different.  A great way to be proud of your new name is to have guests sign your initial.  You can find letters all over or make them yourself if you can’t find your color scheme. guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

14.  This is similar to the puzzle, however guests can sign pieces of a photo of you.  As they sign they can put it back and the picture can be hung on your wall forever.  guestbook, las vegas wedding planners, wedding planners las vegas, wedding coordinator las vegas, las vegas wedding coordinator, event planners las vegas, las vegas event planners, event coordinators las vegas, las vegas event coordinators, suite weddings las vegas, las vegas weddings, weddings

15.  Photo booth book- Having a photobooth at your wedding?  Most of them come with your guest book.  Guests get to keep a copy of their photo and put one in your book and sign next to it.  Definitely keeps them involved in the night activities.

16.  Sign Hearts- Whether it is hearts, stars, circles, any shape will do, just have a cute shadow box to display them in.  This also makes the perfect piece to display for your friends and family.

Wedding planning should always be exciting and stress free.  Traditional wedding ideas are great but it’s always fun for not only you (the couple) but for your guests to see your creativity shine!  If you aren’t the most creative person and need assistance in making your wedding unique, please contact me for information in planning that special wedding for you!  Most of the photos above have a link directly to them that sends you to where to purchase these from.  Enjoy!

Why you should Hire a Day of Wedding Coordinator

Day of Coordination

#weddingplannerlasvegas, #dayofweddingcoordinator, #dayofcoordination, #weddings, #weddingplanners, #lasvegasweddings

Every girls dream wedding coordinator

Once you have all your wedding planning finished, ever worry or wonder how the day will go and not wanting to be in charge of it yourself? Hiring a Day of Coordinator takes all the stresses away from brides. Day of Coordinators provide services that typically are not just the day of your wedding so when booking someone be sure to ask exactly what they will do for you. At Desirable Events by Desi, we provide more of an experience with you that is beyond your wedding.

First, we set up a meeting either in person or through telephone or Skype about a month prior to your wedding. Any weddings closer we set up meetings right away to ensure we have time. We ask during the meeting for all the venue and vendor information, details you specifically expect, and any concerns you may have (including concerns about guests that you would like an eye kept on). Our planners love getting to know the couple a little more in order to know your personality and style.

Next, we take the information from above and create a detailed timeline. This goes to all vendors to ensure they are on time and copies to your bridesmaids as well in case everyone is getting ready somewhere else. This timeline has many details for each of your vendors on when to arrive, setup, tear down, songs or cues they may need, basically the little things that as a bride you no longer need to stress about. We bring extra copies of these timelines for the photographers, DJs, and venue staff the day of to ensure they follow the wedding as planned. If anyone watches Vanderpump Rules and saw Scheana turn into bridezilla this is because her wedding coordinator did not execute the timeline well.

About a day or two prior to the wedding, we set up an hour rehearsal practice so you and your bridal party knows exactly how it is going to go on your wedding day. Even if the actual space for the wedding isn’t available which happens many times in Las Vegas due to all the weddings, we find a space to mark the floor and timing. Anyone involved in the Rehearsal is welcome to come as we want to ensure nothing is forgotten. This is the perfect way as a bride and groom you can really grasp the concept of your wedding and if you have any concerns we will go over them.

Finally comes the most important day of your life… your Wedding Day! During your wedding day depending on your venue or multiple venues, we are there prior to setup until the end of your night. I would say most of our weddings requires us to be there 10-12 hours. Many couples do not understand the details that go into a day and life of a wedding planner. For most of our weddings we bring two planners because we want everything for your wedding to be strategically placed and as you wished. When we arrive, we first visit the bride and groom just to ensure there are no worries or stresses. Then from there we set up your entire event with all your vendors. It takes a lot of teamwork to go into even small events but what it turns into is something so gorgeous and memorable I just love every minute of it. We follow the timeline as planned and are always around for any jitters, stresses, mother issues (they do happen), anything you need we are there for you. We stay though out the dinner, toasts, cake cutting. We stay until the end. This is one of the differences between us and most wedding planners and coordinators especially those that work for the hotels and event places. Most of them leave during dinner or after cake cutting. We like to stay to the end to watch your beautiful friends and family enjoy the event that although we may not have helped you plan but we executed to your standards and above.  So as you see, when deciding to hire a Wedding Day of Coordinator you must remember that there’s a lot more than goes into it. When I am contacted and people say well the wedding is 6 hours long so that’s what we would like to hire you for, cannot be done. As a planner, I know that I could be held responsible if something doesn’t go right and I am very particular about making sure everything is on time as planned. When researching coordinators be sure to ask exactly what they do. Always remember, you get what you paid for. If someone sounds great due to their price make sure they are experienced and hire someone that is detailed oriented. It’s better to spend a little more than hire someone that could potentially ruin your wedding day.
