I was talking to LA based party planner, Suzanne Carvlin, also known as Suzanne The Party Girl. She specializes in throwing parties that are a little less conventional than your typical hotel ballroom wedding with rubber chicken.
So I asked her some questions to get her expert advice on how to approach throwing a party that doesn't quite stick to the script, and here's what she said...
I think I'm in a nostalgic mood. Today, my two-year-old daughter, pretending to be a doctor, gave me a shot, then offered me a pretend lollipop to make me feel better. Remember when all it took to make you feel better was a lollipop?
Well, I found this cool site called the Sweet Lollipop Shop that makes custom lollipops for all occasions and I thought what a great, inexpensive party favor idea. They've got birthday and holiday pops, wedding and shower pops, and lots of pops for kids, of course. Here are a few of my favorites...
I was just speaking to Keaton Koechli, VP of Operations at a company called Hoopnotica, which sells hula hoops and hula hoop related products for exercise, dance, and fun.
Keaton told me that for her wedding, she had her company make custom hula hoops in her wedding colors, then put them out for her friends and family to enjoy at the reception. She said it was such a hit, that even her husband's "guy" friends got into the action.
Again I wanted to blog about Liz Coopersmith, my friend and LA party planner, because she's leading monthly workshops in LA, called the Recession Bride's Workshop, to help brides and grooms save money while throwing their dream weddings.
So I posed her some questions to get the skinny on what really matters and what doesn't, and here's what she said...
I was just talking to Liz Coopersmith, LA-based wedding coordinator at Silver Charm Events, who is also a wedding officiant and a huge sci fi fan. She's going to Comic-Con July 23rd - July 26th, and has come up with a great idea, to marry a couple on the floor of the San Diego Convention Center.
All she needs to find is an engaged couple who already has tickets to Comic-Con (since the convention is completely sold out). They'll need a marriage license, which Liz can help them get.
Whose family isn't awkward? I just check out the new site Awkward Family Photos and especially loved the the awkward wedding photos and awkward engagement photos. The site is only a month old, so there aren't that many pictures in these categories yet, but the ones that are there are priceless. Here are a few of my personal favorites.
