Gorgeous Wedding Signs by From Kelly With Love 

rustic weddig signs
With the growing world of technology and apps, weddings can be more confusing to plan due to the bride searching endless hours on Pinterest for ideas. A friend of mine is an amazing, talented artist and is a one stop shop for all your wedding sign needs. Her shop From Kelly With Love can be found on Etsy. She has tons of different wedding items and I’ll break down some of my favorites by ceremony and reception. (Please click on the photo to go directly to the listing on Etsy to purchase).

Ceremony:
1. Welcome Sign: Guest always feel special with an adorable welcome sign like this Sandwich board or aisle blocker. Y

2. Directional Sign: Some venues can be confusing to where the ceremony and reception take place. Get a fun direction sign so guests know exactly where everything will be.

3. Seating Sign: Ceremony seating can get confusing or if someone has a significant amount of people on their side it tends to feel uncomfortable for people to intermingle. This is a unity of two families joining together so why not have a sign to direct guests to side on either side?

4. Memorial Sign: It’s always a sweet idea to honor loved ones watching from heaven by having something to remember them by. Here are a couple different ideas for this:

5. Ring bearer signs: The kids are always the first “awe” moment before the bride. Why not spice it up and add that extra awe with one of these adorable signs!

6. Guest book Sign: With all the different ideas in guestbooks that are created today, guests tend to get confused on where to sign their names. By having a sign with the guest book will allow guests to not miss out on sending you wishes. (check out my past blog for guestbook ideas)

7. Monogram: Becoming one family is showing how true love exists. Brides can now share their new monogram as soon as they become a Mrs. (Note: This could always double as a guest book.)

8. Cake sign: Cake tables always need extra decor that many couples forget to add. Why not get a cute sign to display with your cake and cutting set for that nice additional touch!

9. Favor sign: Favors are such a wide range of what people do now and If you are setting up a table just for favors, make sure you have a sign to let your guests know that it is ok to take one.

10. Bar sign: Many people do not decorate the bars at their wedding so they just sit as is. Most of your guests though tend to spend most of their time getting drinks so by adding a fun little sign to it will be a nice touch.

11. Social Media Sign: As I stated in the beginning of this blog, social media is huge. It’s a great way to see what your wedding looked like from all your guests perspective. Create a hashtag and get a sign like this so your guests can provide you with amazing photos.

12. Table Numbers: These are perfect little rustic table numbers, something which most venues do not provide so why not get something cute that you can reuse in the future for things such as other parties or kids birthdays.

13. Food Signs: Each wedding may have certain food, candy, or treat stations. Add the rustic touch with one of these.

14. Chair signs: The bride and groom should stand out on their day. It’s a great touch having these shabby chic chair signs and perfect for photos.

Westin Lake Las Vegas Wedding

Las Vegas wedding planner, desirable events by desi

Christina and Matt are a gorgeous couple who met in Las Vegas but both have midwestern family roots.  I met them a while back but ran into them again just as they were finishing up all their wedding details.  Christina seemed a little flustered on how the day would actually turn out and who would direct her vendors, bridal party, and guests.  I suggested hiring a day of coordinator and that is how I ended up with this gorgeous event.  She needed some advice on the little things such as rentals, table numbers and place cards so I offered my assistance in gathering the few details they had left.

This gorgeous wedding took place on May 9th, 2015 at the Westin Lake Las Vegas.  Their guest list of nearly 130 filled up the romantic ceremony space that overlooked the golf course and Lake Las Vegas.  It was decorated with flowers and draping by Layers of Lovely, lanterns and mirror stand from Sit on This, and the garden chairs from the Westin.  The floral with the lit candles made for the romantic look along with the lake in the background, which was so perfect for this 6pm wedding.  The aisle also was alined with rose petals and the entrance for the bridal party was a grand walk.  Christina’s Uncle was the officiant for the ceremony and Matt’s sister did a reading which made the two families come together and brought a heart felt touch to the wedding.  Prior to the wedding, Christina and Matt did a letter exchange where they shared their love for one another that Matt’s Brother (the best man) exchanged with Christina and they each read aloud for the videographer.  They did this in place of their own vows to omit any nervous tension.

Following the wedding the guests stayed in the space and were served cocktails while Christina and Matt took their photos together.  About 30 minutes into the outdoor cocktail hour the wind really picked up and eventually we had a few rain sprinkles.  The room was ready so most of the guests didn’t even feel a drop of rain as they headed to the ballroom reception space.  I was worried about photos of Matt and Christina because there were a ton of outdoor spots they were going to use. Moxie Studio was their photographer and as windy/rainy as it was, they couldn’t have done a better job getting the shots in.  They had gorgeous clouds and even a rainbow in their shots.  We may not be able to control the weather, but they couldn’t have asked for more perfect timing.  Plus, a little rain is good luck right!

The reception was set with similar flower arrangements and lanterns from the ceremony with a few additions.  As guests entered they were greeted with a Thank you sign made by one of the bridesmaids as well as their blush glitter place cards that the bride put lots of detail in.  Guests sat in beautiful gold chiavari chairs with an ivory cushions and had gold chargers at their place settings. The sweetheart table had a very elegant chandelier above it provided by Sit on This.  The reception began with a grand entrance from the large bridal party of 13 plus the cutest little flower girl and ring bearer.  Then it was time for the new Mr. and Mrs. Bees to be announced by the amazing DJ Harry O.  They look absolutely gorgeous and so in love as they entered.  They immediately took the dance floor and danced a choreographed dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”.  It was adorable and they danced so elegantly.  Following this was a blessing by Christina’s father followed by dinner. After dinner, the best man and maid of honor speeches were made along with a thank you from the couple.  The cake cutting of their chic wedding cake by Las Vegas Custom Cakes took place next.  Then Christina did a father daughter dance as Lighten Films captured this along with the entire wedding.  Finally the dance floor opened for guests to dance and I must say this dance floor was never empty.  In the middle, Christina (a former sorority member), asked her Alpha Chi Omega girls to join her on the dance floor.  They entered the dance floor with glow sticks which were their wedding favors and danced away to Dj Skrilla’s “Alpha Chi Omega Anthem”.  Guests were also handed glow sticks to join in on the fun and they sure danced the night away.  I haven’t planned a wedding where when the lights came on and every single guest were still on the dance floor wanting more.  They eventually were sent to the hotel bar to continue the celebration.  It was such a great group of people and truly an honor to be part of such a gorgeous event.

Las Vegas Bachelorette Weekend without the Crazy Club Scene

Wedding planner las vegas

Natalie is one of my best friends and not only do I have the pleasure of assisting in planning her wedding but I also am one of her bridesmaids. Natalie lives in Las Vegas but is from Michigan as well so her Las Vegas bridesmaids including myself, through her a Las Vegas Bachelorette/bridal shower weekend. Seeing that we are all in our 30s, we wanted a fun weekend but not the crazy packed clubs that Vegas has to offer. After lots of planning, we came up with the following itinerary see in this photo (also her invites and edited so address doesn’t show):

Vegas Wedding plannerlas vegas wedding planner

For Saturday our day began with a Cabana at Daydream. This is the adult pool located at the M Resort. It’s a perfect spot that  us locals typically go to all summer long. There aren’t kids there and it is not overly crowded like the strip club pools tend to be. We decorated the cabana in balloons and banners. (Side note in case you are planning a pool: do not bring picture frames or anything with glass because they will take it). I bought Natalie Bride sunglasses and decided to get sunglasses favors for all our attendees. We ordered a few bottles of vodka (only $95 each)and a few bottles of champagne ($40 each) for the perfect mix for any bachelorette. Pricing at the M is very reasonable and our cabana only was a $400 minimum which was easy to hit for a group of 16 girls. The manager even surprised Natalie with a complimentary bottle of champagne. We had perfect weather that day and it turned out to be such a fun day.

After the pool and getting ready, we went back to the M Resort for dinner. We chose to go to one of Natalie’s favorite restaurants, Jayde Fuzion. Here they specialize in sushi and Asian dishes with three menu options: All-You-Can-Eat Sushi and Nigiri for $24.95, All-You-Can-Eat Jayde Specialties (no sushi) for $24.95, or All-You-Can-Eat Sushi, Nigiri and Jayde Specialties for $32.95. They are Gluten sensitive friendly as well. It is a very delicious restaurant with a great ambiance. We had the private dining room for the 16 of us.

Following dinner we went to Ravello lounge at the M. I would describe this as an ultra lounge because it’s in between a chill lounge and a nightclub. They had live music and we had bottle service there as well. Which they do not require to have a table but it is again so reasonably priced why not get a bottle. Everyone had so much fun dancing the night away.

The next day we had a bridal shower for Natalie at Ashley’s house (one of her bridesmaids). The food was all made by Her bridesmaid Laura as Ashley and I decorated the house. Looking through these photos you will notice the “Puffs”, I would definitely do these ahead of time or make sure you have plenty of people to make them. They look cute but they are a pain to decorate with. We set up a mimosa bar with different juices and fruit. This way guests could enjoy drinks of their liking. As favors, we had mini bottles of sparkling wine for each guest to take with them. Our theme was blush and gold and we displayed this throughout the day in decor, favors, and invites. We played 2 games, Who knows the bride best and we asked each girl to decorate a bottle of champagne that describes their friendship to Natalie and she would pick the best bottle.  We had about 14 girls attend the shower and Marc (her fiancé) came to open presents with her. His favorite being the lingerie of course. We had a guest book alternative that is pictured below of the letter C for her soon to be new initial.  After gifts anyone who wanted to stay brought swim suits to use the pool at Ashley’s. It was the perfect way to ending the perfect weekend.

This is what I am here for and I love planning the perfect Bachelorette and Bridal Showers.

Tivoli Village Las Vegas Wedding

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.

Tivoli-Village-Wedding-30 Tivoli-Village-Wedding

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.

Tivoli-Village-Wedding Tivoli-Village-WeddingView Wine bar tivoli

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.

Sweating for the wedding workouts- Beach Body

bridal workout

Through Social Media, I see lots of posts questioning which Beach Body workout set is the best. I have always answered my opinion on these questions since we now own many of them. I feel like my opinion always shifted based on the next “new” one that arrived, however, after realizing lately how my body hasn’t changed I feel like my opinions were wrong. Before reading this just know this is based strictly on my opinion: a 5’3 female who ranges in the 108-116lb range. There is one other main thing that is my workout goal and that is to eat whatever I want. By this, I have two main strict things that I will never let a diet plan eliminate: a slurp every day and Qdoba nachos at least once every week. I do not in any way, shape or form worry about what I am eating or drinking other than I have a Gluten sensitivity. Anyways, going back to the workouts here is a list the ones we own and the order I like them. If you also have my views on dieting than definitely go with my top two workouts because they are great and keep you fit without worrying about Calorie intake.

1. P90X2- This is my absolute favorite workout. It really focuses on your core which every woman loves. The creators describe this workout as “the kind of results Pros insist on… not by working harder but working smarter”. I totally agree with this. You bring more focus and attention through your core as you are doing each exercise. Even during the arm work out, you use a stability ball to focus your ab control. For the past 6 months, I have been doing two other workout videos. I just switched back to P90x2 because I am not happy or beach body ready and in only 2 days, I feel so much better. I am assuming I will be down at least 4lbs in my first week with these videos since I know how my body works and what this workout helps be focus on. Set aside about an hour each day for these workouts. It may seem long but do them from beginning to end because they truly work each part of your body throughout the entire video.

Equipment needed for this:
Dumbbells or resistance bands
Pull up bar or resistance band

Optional:
Stability ball (this I also use)
Foam Rollers (great for warmups and stretching)
2 Medicine balls (I do not use)
Power stands
2. P90x- The original P90x video and very great workout for both male and females. My husband prefers this one over my favorite. This is a great workout to lean out and then build your muscles. You definitely get the results you need even without following a strict diet. There is a lot of talking during the videos which is the only annoying thing but once you know the workouts you can either fast forward through it or follow along with the book that comes with it.

Equipment needed for this:
Dumbells or resistance bands
Pull up bar or resistance band (I use the band but connect it to my husband’s pull up bar)

Optional:
Yoga mat (definitely recommended for Yoga)
Medicine ball
Stability ball
power stands

3. p90x3- Only 30 minutes long typically. This is similar to the other two but shorter. At first I thought great less talking and more of a workout but there’s just something missing to me. I think the workouts are great and perfect if you are on a time crunch but again I just don’t see as much of an improvement in my body that I saw with 1 & 2. I definitely recommend this to anyone that only has 30 minutes to work out because you still get something. My only suggestion would be maybe try to add another workout or walk at night.

Equipment needed:
Dumbells or resistance bands
Chin up bar

Optional:
Yoga mat
power stands
4. insanity- Basically 25 minutes of pure core/cardio workout. Great for slimming down but if you want to build muscle you need to still add weights into your workout plan. I love that you slim down from it but has anyone ever seen someone or heard of someone being “skinny fat”? This is someone that’s slender but has that awkward belly or arm jiggles and to me it isn’t attractive. Definitely add some weights to this workout just to tone your muscles. It makes you look a lot better and not anorexic or “skinny fat”. This is a good mix with P90x3 since they are both shorter workouts just mix in the arms, legs, back and chest from p90x3 with each insanity disc.

No equipment is needed

I typically like to use arm or leg weights just to help build and tone.
5. T-25- Also only 25 minutes of a workout but great for your entire body. This is my favorite shortened workout another but the issue I have with it is that it is best to be tone before doing this. It takes longer than the other videos to get to your goal weight because it is a shorter video. Once you reach your goal then these workouts can help keep you there. If you don’t have 25 minutes in your day than you must be crazy busy but i would suggest to you to cut back 25 minutes of sleep to at least fit this in.

Alpha round:
No equipment needed

Optional:
Yoga mat

Beta round:
Equipment needed:
dumbells or resistance bands

Optional:
Yoga mat
chin up bar

6. Beast body- This workout is best for men and ranges between 40-50 minute videos. I’ll be honest, I did 90 days of it and the only thing i realized I got from it is a large booty. I do not like lifting super heavy weights because my ultimate goal is to stay petite and thin. I felt that yes it was great for my husband building muscles but in fact neither of us looked cut from it. If you choose this workout you definitely want to make sure to keep cardio in your workout plan.

Equipment needed:
Dumbells*
Bench or stability ball (we use stability balls)
Pull up bar or resistance band

*Men may also want to use a curling bar

beach body workout

This popular craze with Beach Body is a great way to not only get workouts in at home but skip waiting in line for the gym for a machine, feeling like you are embarrassed to workout in front of people, and even gives you extra time in your day since it requires no driving. I had a gym membership for over 3 years here in Vegas and I only went a handful of times. While I’d like to say most people go to work out, this isn’t so much the case here. People love to socialize, take annoying “selfies”, and size each other up while they are here. Girls typically shower, put on makeup and do their hair before they go to the gym. Come on, if you want to stay in shape then stay at home and try one of these great workouts. If you want to meet someone at the gym then I guess go for it and look stupid in your wedged tennis shoes. I’m not saying it is everyone but I love working out at home. I can do it on my own time and away from those little annoying things people do at the gym. I am definitely a firm believer on Beach Body and I am in no way affiliated with their staff. I just love staying active and it is a perfect workout for me. I’m now challenging myself for the next month to slim down 10lbs and by this I am going back to a strict p90x2 workout regimen. Cross your fingers and hope I get down to my goal weight by one of my best friend’s Bachelorette party in 3 weeks. I will blog back then and let you all know how it goes. Until then, try one of the workouts at home and you will see what the gym doesn’t do for you!

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 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.

50 Shades of Keeping your Husband Happy!

sara ford fotos

Of course this movie was going to cause controversy but it’s crazy to me at the extremes those “haters” are going to. I am a week late on this post and it seems all the hype is gone now.  I think it’s because the Magic Mike 2 trailor came out.  Anways, what I don’t understand is how people get upset about a sexual movie but they allow their kids to watch movies like hunger games and the Purge. Of course this is not a kid friendly movie but are you that big of a prude to think it’s so bad? Here’s my thing, unless you are a nun or a priest or just celibate for life because you choose, this movie should be a good learning experience. I’m not saying every relationship needs to have a dominant and submissive one but I think in each sexual encounter you have with your partner there’s always one or the other.

With this being said, one of the most important things in a relationship is to be sexually attracted to one another. You can have all the care and love for someone in the world, but if you are not sexually compatible than I’m sorry but you might as well be best friends. I believe the number one reason most people cheat is because their sexual experiences are lacking.  Yes, money, kids, work and other things stress people out but why as couples can’t we all get through these stresses together instead of fighting.  Even if you have sex with your significant other on a daily basis, if you don’t spice it up once in a while, don’t you feel unsatisfied? I’m not saying everyone needs to go out and reenact this movie by getting whips, paddles, and zip ties, but I believe you need to do more than the same sexual positions. Everyone from time to time needs to change it up. Whether it being adding toys, watching porn together, role play, etc, you have to do something different. Ladies if you don’t add excitement and say you know for sure your man isn’t cheating, he is. I don’t mean with another woman but he’s definitely using his hand most likely watching other naked woman on his computer or TV. Maybe you don’t care if he does that but in a way doesn’t it make you feel unsatisfied?

I am a firm believer that most couples no matter how open you are in a relationship one or both of you have a sexual desire secret. Keeping it bottled up and to yourself almost is like cheating, not only your partner but yourself. If you have a sexual desire and are embarrassed to tell the other person don’t. It only keeps your desires bottled in and really gives you no satisfaction. I believe telling your partner about your desires increases both of your sexual peaks and makes your relationship closer to each other.

What I’m getting at is 50 Shades of Grey was based on a book series that of course caused a little controversy when it came out but with 100 million copies sold we all supported it. It actually brought many woman who read it, back to that sexual spark they once had. If you say the book didn’t you are lying.

I have to admit what you read in this blog until this point has been my opinion before seeing the movie. Now that I saw the movie my opinion still hasn’t changed and in fact, I didn’t even think that it was bad at all. I’m not going to spoil the movie for those of you that haven’t seen it, but I will say it did not in any way degrade woman. The female was willingly giving herself to him. For the most part, she wanted and enjoyed everything they did.  If you read the book it is completely on point with it.   I do think as a reader we visualize a lot more than what the movie entailed; but if they made this movie how most woman pictured it from reading, then it wouldn’t be in theaters because it would have to be a hot and sexy porn. I liked the movie but I didn’t love it of course because I just picutred different actors playing the lead roles.  My husband surprisingly really liked the movie and didn’t understand why everyone acts like it is just for females. He didn’t read the book of course.

Anyways, my main advice to anyone in a relationship would be this: Stay sexy, flirty, and spice it up.  You want to spend your life with the one you are with.  You have to be able to always experience new things together.

New Year’s Eve Las Vegas Suite Wedding- M Resort

Joey & Lori

Las vegas suite wedding

Who wouldn’t want to attend a New Year’s Eve wedding especially when this amazing couple are the hosts? I first spoke to Joey and Lori right after the holidays in the beginning of 2014. The way we were introduced is bittersweet. They had booked an amazing officiant, Reverend Jimmy Mac with whom I have worked with in the past and became a great mentor. They knew if he approved than I was the perfect fit for them seeing as Lori’s stepfather actually attended High School with Jimmy Mac. About a month before the wedding we had shocking news that saddened all of us which was the sudden passing of a great friend and amazing man Jimmy Mac. If it weren’t for him, I would not have been part of this amazing and gorgeous wedding day and I know he was with us all in spirit.

Las vegas wedding plannerWedding coordinators las vegasWedding planners las vegas

Lori and Joey met online.  One of my blogs “First BLIND Date” was actually inspired by them.  They met after months of speaking online and had the perfect date at Lori’s sister’s house.  He was blindfolded when he showed up as well as Lori and they sat for hours talking to each other and enjoying each other blindfold.  Lori’s bridesmaid actually put on the whole date and listened through baby monitors.  At the end of the date Joey couldn’t take it any longer and had to see his gorgeous date.  Please see my past blog for more information on “First Blind Dates”.

Lori had one request for her wedding and that was she wanted it on New Years Eve. We decided to rent a suite and have a New Years party/wedding done Vegas style. Since we began planning so far out, most hotels did not know the room rates and if there would even be a suite available for them to rent. After using my negation skills I believe we could not have chose a better location. Joey and Lori were wed in a two story loft suite at the M Resort. For those of you unfamiliar with this resort, it is located about two miles south of Mandalay Bay off the strip but still on Las Vegas Blvd. With breathtaking 270 degree views you can not go wrong with this choice in venue. They rented the two connecting rooms as well.  One room we had all the catering in and the other room we had a photobooth in for guests to enjoy.  The photobooth doubled as favors for their guests and was another guestbook for the couple.

Being a New Year’s Eve wedding, their theme was a fun, elegant party.  They served their guests hot and cold Hors D’oeurves and an assortment of Beer, Wine, liquor and of course Champagne.  Lori and Joey love Rotari Rose so I special ordered 2 cases for them through the liquor distributor.  As guests entered the room for the ceremony, they were served Champagne or Beer.  Lori joked that she had “Champagne taste on a Beer Budget” so the preceremony drinks were perfect for her taste.  We used the rest of the champagne as a midnight toast when we did a countdown to midnight.  Each champagne flute was rimmed with gold sugar to add that extra elegant touch for their New Year’s Eve wedding.

The two story suite was set up perfectly for guests to enjoy music and dancing.  The DJ was set up on the top floor balcony overlooking the bottom level of the suite.  The bottom is where they guests were able to dance and get their drinks from the bar.  It was the perfect touch for any hotel suite wedding.  As I mentioned previously, the M Resort has breathtaking views.  On New Year’s Eve at midnight something beautiful happens in Las Vegas in which their guests enjoyed perfect views from.  The Las Vegas strip has fireworks in different locations throughout the strips which was the perfect ending to a beautiful wedding.  I even got a little choked up by the fireworks and had tears in my eyes.  You can’t make up or dream of such a beautiful fairy tale.

Finally at the end of the night just after the fireworks, they wanted guests to grab their coats, a drink, and meet us downstairs for a sparkler send off.  Everyone who came received sparklers and we timed it just right to give the couple their final send off.  It was a magical moment for Joey and Lori and definitely a memorable wedding/ New Year’s for everyone who attended.  In my opinion, one of the best ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve is a wedding.  Especially if you can make it intimate and beautiful like this Suite wedding.  No one likes planning their New Year’s so why not plan it for them with not only a great party  but by sharing your love for one another in front of your favorite and closest friends.
