Style Perfect Events "Wedding Day" Team

I'm a big believer in team work and since last year I've had the pleasure of being able to work with two wonderful coordinators Nicole and Morgan. These ladies are my right hand gals when it comes to crafting, setting-up the wedding day, greeting guests and tending to the wedding party. They will be working with me again for the 2011 wedding season.

Say hello to Nicole and Morgan!

Honeymoon: Sail Away!

Last week my family and I celebrated my mother's 60th birthday on a Carnival Cruise Ship. We had a fabulous time. This was my first time cruising and it is a very different traveling experience, as a cruise is all inclusive and you can eat yourself into a coma. There are also lots of fun activities for day and night. As well as, you get to visit several different locations during your cruise and can sign-up for tours, water activities and shopping excursions right on the cruise ship.

That being said, if you're looking for a relaxing honeymoon spot that does not require a lot of research and pre-planning a cruise is definitely an awesome option. It will allow you to enjoy each other's company without having to worry about where you're going to eat for dinner or what tourist attractions to enjoy.

There are many cruise lines, but after talking to several people about cruises it seems that Royal Caribbean is the favorite of many. Your local AAA agent can help you get started.

Happy Planning!

Food Presentation

As a self-proclaimed foody, I not only love great food, but I swoon over fabulous presentation. When planning your wedding or next social event, don't forget about the little details when it comes to displaying your menu. Your guests "first taste" is with their eyes.

Here's some YUMMY inspiration! (all images via Charlotte caterer's La-Tea-Da's Catering)
