Rain, Rain Go Away!!!    

Rain, Rain Go Away!!!    

“But, what if it rains?” I ask this question every time a potential client is planning an outdoor wedding. The perfect world answer is, “Why do you ask?” I, however, have heard other answers such as, “We have those pop-up tents we borrowed from friends …it will be fine…” And yes, I have heard “Oh it’s not going to rain on MY wedding!” Well…. It can rain and after you spend a pretty penny on everything else, you want to insure your special day goes smoothly as possible. Consider Renting a Tent Think you can’t afford a tent? Wedding tents are really a bargain when you think about it. With a tent you can virtually have your wedding anywhere: The beach, a state park pavilion, a private residence backyard. I have performed at hundreds of outdoor weddings. They are really the best of times. A tent provides not only shelter from the rain, but also from the sun. You don’t want your BBQ or banquet food to spoil. You definitely don’t want your family and friends sweltering in the heat. Keeping the Noise Down Another aspect to consider is that a tent will help cut down on noise drifting into neighbors’ yards or businesses nearby. I’m not suggesting it eliminates sound from traveling but with proper speaker placement, you can achieve a lower decibel rating coming from your location. (A little science lesson never hurt no one). Have you ever been to a backyard party/wedding and had the police come by for a visit? Plan Ahead Having a sound planning strategy to make the most of your big day...

Wedding Season is Over… Or is it?

I say no way! Once the rush of the holidays is over, most newly engaged couples begin researching vendors for their wedding ceremony & reception. With so many choices where do you begin? Your choice of venue is a great place to start. After you find the right location to celebrate your big day, take advantage of their preferred vendor list. Chances are, if you like the venue and the way they run things, their vendor list has wedding professionals who have the same work ethic and philosophy’s. Another source is social media sites like Facebook, Wedding Wire, Pinterest and The Knot. Here you will get a more realistic idea of how much a certain vendor charges. You can ask questions anonymously on these sites and get great ideas for decorating. I like a page on Facebook called “Wedding Yard Sale MA & RI” here’s the link Pinterest has some nice articles and ideas too. Just start typing “wedding” in the search bar of Pinterest and hundreds of ideas will help you plan out your event. https://www.pinterest.com/weddingideas And finally there are word of mouth referrals from family and friends. These type of referrals carry a lot of weight because the information given is a first hand experience from a trusted source. Oh the choices. But fear not, my advice is to make a list of must haves and have not’s. Services you actually need and not the ones you wish you could have. Be pragmatic (big college word – look it up if you don’t believe me) I have developed a timeline list of things to do to help you...
