Wedding Planning

If you are looking for tools, resources, and advice on how to become a wedding and event planner or to find out how to grow your current event planning business, you are at the right place!

The 2001 comedy The Wedding Planner with Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey is about the busy life of a wedding planner who falls in love with one of her clients. Also, many TV shows that have branched from wedding planning, such as TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress This is a reality show that follows brides as they shop at the prestigious Kleinfeld’s for their perfect wedding dress. Another show is ‘My Fair Wedding’ with celebrity party planner David Tutera.

I love the current trend for bridesmaids; a mismatched look that is complimentary and cohesive. Our theme for the DC Ladies Wedding Styled Shoot was Kate Spade in DC (more on this tomorrow!). So we chose floor length dresses in the same fabric and general silhouette, but with different colors and styles for each bridesmaid. The team at Ellie’s Bridal worked with me to select the gorgeous bridesmaid dresses from the Jim Hjelm Occasions line (styles 5125, 5185, and 5363), our bridesmaids looked amazing!

As the former director of special events at the New Museum, Angie Nevarez has produced hundreds of parties and has the inside scoop on nearly every venue and vendor in the tristate MJ Christensen area. She’s great with details such as creating menus that feature a couple’s favorite childhood dishes. Day-of services and destination planning also available. From $4,500.
