Tropicana Havana Room Wedding

I had the privilege of meeting Stacy & Charles while setting up for a wedding in this gorgeous space.  They happened to be doing a walk through of the venue and I had a moment to speak to them.  A week later Stacy contacted me and from then on we began planning this beautiful wedding.  Stacy is from California and Charles is a local so throughout the year I had the opportunity to meet with them for planning.  Every time I met with them they were so sweet and both had a twinkle in their eyes at each other.  Charles always had the perfect answer to his bride… “Whatever you want, dear”.

The day began with hair and makeup by Concierge Makeup.  The ceremony and reception took place in the Havana Room at the Tropicana Las Vegas.  The beautiful flowers were created by the ever so talented Naakiti floral who brought all of Stacy’s visions to life.  Stacy provided the vases so all of her local guests had an extra take away from the wedding.  The ceremony was officiated by Stacy’s Stepfather which put the perfect personal touch into the wedding.  During the ceremony since Stacy was not only gaining a husband but also a son, they did a sand ceremony to unite the three of them.  Catering and the exquisite wedding cake was provided by the Tropicana, including the exquisite groom’s cake of a camera (everything edible- see awesome photo below).  Charles is a videographer/videographer and with his surprise there wasn’t a cutting of that cake as he wanted to keep it forever.  The menu consisted of a three course plated dinner featuring: Lobster Bisque, chipotle caesar salad,  guests choice of herb grilled chicken breast or roasted organic salmon.  During cocktail hour the bride and groom’s favorite food chicken wings were served.  The Chef custom made the wings of their favorites: Buffalo Hot, Salt & Vinegar, Lemon Pepper, and Teriyaki.  Also during cocktail hour they had a violinist, Tony B performed.  The signature cocktail chosen by them is their favorite drink of Kentucky Mules. All of the photography in this blog and from their wedding day was shot by Indigo Foto.  They also had cinema created by K+A Creative.  The final personalized touch were their adorable wedding favors of maple syrup.  The story behind it being they are each other’s perfect match because one only likes the outside of a pancake and the other only eats the inside so together they have a whole pancake (with maple syrup of course). Stacy & Charles, I could not thank you enough for having us as part of your perfect wedding day.  I look forward to seeing your future together!

Bridal Show Checklist

563494_258556824269677_1411480114_n

Are you newly engaged and ready to begin planning?  Typically every bride from the moment that ring hits your finger (if not the day you started dating) you already have ideas of how your wedding will be.  Where do you begin?  Of course being a wedding planner, I highly recommend hiring a planner immediate for Full Service Planning because it just helps make the whole process easier and enjoyable for you.  However, if you feel that is out of your budget or you are not sure right away, a great way to find out is by attending a bridal show or open house.

Bridal shows and open houses are a fabulous way for a couple that does not have an idea of vendors, venues, or styles.  Pinterest is great for ideas but it definitely can not find and book your vendors for you.  First I want to just let you know the difference between a bridal show and an open house.  A bridal show is different from an open house because at bridal shows, there are many different venues there along with vendors.  An open house is actually at the venue and they have a preferred amount of vendors there to use for that property.  You of course do not have to book at the open house that venue but you will also not have information available on other venues.

I want to share a list of helpful information for any of you that plan on attending one or more of these events to make it actually worth your time.

  1.  Before you attend the event have a list made on exactly what you are looking for (photographer, videographer, DJ, and so on).  This way when you arrive and are handed a map, you can circle all the booths you definitely want to see.
  2. Go as a couple!  It is great to get your bridesmaids together and have a fun girls day out but you essentially could be meeting someone that you want to book for your wedding and your fiance will not be there.  This would typically mean that instead of having the initial meeting out of the way, you will have to set up an additional appointment to meet them.  Plus, vendors love seeing couples together because it shows how involved and in love you two are.
  3. Share the correct information.  Although none of us love having tons of spam emails, these emails will be helpful to you as they are from all of the vendors at the show.  Some offer discounts, a free gift or other incentives for booking them so it is a great way to see special offers.  You can always opt out as you are receiving them.
  4. Pricing is key.  If you are on a strict budget, you need to be sure to meet vendors that fall within that budget.  If someone is significantly out of your budget and you want to book them, it will break your heart.  Get information on pricing before you go into getting to know the person.
  5. Shop around.  You are there to find the perfect venue or vendor that completes your style.  Be sure to visit multiple booths for each vendor so you can see their different styles, packages, and personalities in order to find the one that best fits you.  It is not always best to go with the biggest bargain.  Pricing ranges quite a bit, especially in Las Vegas.  Make sure your vendor has the experience and quality of work that you wish.
  6. Ask vendors important questions.  Be sure to ask each vendor if they have a business license as well as insurance.  Most of the vendors at a bridal show will definitely have this but this is great advice whether you are looking at a show or online.  Any one can be a planner or a DJ, be sure that you are actually getting someone that has a reputable company.  Most venues require a copy of the license as well as insurance for each vendor.
  7. Sign up to enter their contest.  The vendors already have your contact information from registration so do not be afraid to enter into their giveaways.  You will get emails from them regardless and you never know if you could be the winner of a free engagement photo shoot from an awesome photographer.
  8. Have fun! Enjoy every minute of these shows.  They are meant for you to take all the stress off you for your planning experience.  Take in everything it has to offer.  Enjoy cocktails, sweet tastings, fashion shows, everything they have to offer.

Finally I want to just add, if you still need help finding some vendors you can always hire a wedding planner for partial service planning to help you out.  Regardless if you need that or not I always highly suggest having a day of coordinator from an independant company.  All venues come with wedding coordinators but most of their responsiblilties fall on the venue side and does not include assisting in setting up any DIY decorations or making sure all of your vendors know how the day is going to flow.  Please feel free to contact me for any assistance in planning your gorgeous day!

If you are traveling for a bridal show or open house, please visit Las Vegas Travel Packages to book your stay.  Contact me also if you need any assistance on planning your wedding day or vacation stay.

Pool Party Wedding Reception

When I met Sara and TJ, I knew I had to immediately be part of their wedding.  They got married in June in Las Vegas and I never encourage an outside reception but theirs was brilliant.  I will add first, the family was coming in from the Ukraine and couldn’t wait to attend a traditional American wedding but this is not quite what they experienced.  The wedding ceremony was a beautiful traditional ceremony at the Sayer’s Club inside SLS.  Their guests were told though to wear resort casual and even their swimsuits.  Many were stunned when they invites arrived and no on showed up to the ceremony in their swimsuits. Everyone did however come to the cocktail hour and reception in their beach wear and ready to take a dive in the pool.  Their reception took place at the Lux Pool at SLS and it was a pool party reception.  They had the huge swan and flamingo rafts as decor for the pool so guests could enjoy a float on them.  This definitely wasn’t your traditional wedding reception but it was a huge hit.  This wedding was so much fun to plan and it truly was a great idea.  I encourage all of my summer couple’s if they must get married in Vegas in 100 + degree weather, why not do a fun nontraditional reception.

Here are a few of my favorite photos by the amazing David Burke:

Marissa & Nate

 

4d8a7277-las-vegas-wedding-at-havana-room-at-tropicana-marissa-and-nate-steven-joseph-photographyI have never met a bride more organized and ready to go then when I met Marissa eight months prior to their wedding.  She knew exactly what she wanted and how she wanted it. When she said she needed a wedding planner, it was the first time I thought are you sure you need one? (Kidding)  Joking aside, Marissa and Nate were such an adorable couple.  They each complimented each other so perfectly.  Coming from the midwest, the rivalries between in state schools are very serious but in the end, they put their differences aside for love.  You see, Marissa went to Oklahoma, and Nate went to Oklahoma State.  Being the amazing bride Marissa was though she called me for a top secret surprise that only me and the person coming would know.  She decided to surprise Nate with Pistal Pete (Oklahoma State’s mascot).  It was quite the journey coming here as he couldn’t fly because of the size of his head so he had to drive from Oklahoma State to Las Vegas.  This could not have been a better surprise.  Nate and his groomsmen looked like a child seeing Santa.  It was such a memorable moment. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous from start to finish as I knew it would be.  Thank you so much Marissa and Nate for choosing us to be part of your wedding day!

Back to Work

I just wanted to say a quick Thank you to everyone in my life for all your support during this past year.  It has been a while since I had time to blog about our events but the wait was so worth it.  I didn’t get to blog about my pregnancy or anything but this little amazing, fiery spirited girl came into our lives and is the best surprise we will ever have.  Our daughter Stoli was born 4 months ago and she’s so awesome.  Although I worked throughout my pregnancy and even had a wedding a few days before I went into labor and another right after, I made sure to keep some time aside for this sweet little angel.  I can’t wait until she is older to be my little wedding planning assistant.  Thank you Lullaby Lane for capturing our little newborn.

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.

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!
