Life as a bridesmaid

So as I have previously mentioned, I am a bridesmaid for both weddings. After numerous driving to Beverly Hills, the seamtress at the bridal shop showed me how to tie the corset on the wedding dress and do the bustle. Not too hard, I might say, I just hope I remember though.

So I’ll be running around doing wedding planner and bridesmaid duty. I’m only showing 1 photo because I don’t want to ruin and show Valerie’s dress until the wedding. Next week, on Sunday after Valerie’s wedding, I will be going to Beverly Hills again and this time to learn how to do the bustle for Claudine’s dress (bride/cousin).

Wish me luck guys!

Wedding wood stake

2 weeks ago, Valerie (the bride/cousin), myself and a few vendors went to visit the location to sort out a few details. With advice from the florist, we decided to move the guests’ picture area from its original space. However, with all the commotions after the ceremony, especially with the canopy and the space flipping into the reception area, I thought guests might be confused as to where to go to take pictures with the bride and groom.  I have proposed to do a wood stake with arrow to indicate where the picture area is and an exit sign so guests can go back to the hors d’oeuves area.

Welcome to my new adventure!

Hello all!

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I will start blogging about the weddings that I work on and little details on my life here and there.

My first real hand experience on wedding planning started a year ago when both my cousins announced they were getting married back to back. So what’s a ‘good cousin’ to do??? Proposed that I will be their wedding planner and it worked out PERFECTLY!!!

Now it is down to the wire and the 1st wedding is in 1 week!!! I will play double duty as a bridesmaid AND wedding planner. Oh boy the stress!!!

Stay tuned and I will post pictures and how the weddings turned out.
