Planning a Wedding? We can help.

In the Valley, the spring and summer are certainly the most popular seasons for getting married.  There are so many choices out there with a wide variety of venues for both the ceremony and the reception.    

If you are planning a spring or summer wedding, now is the time to finalize your plans.  We have some wonderful books that are sure to give you some ideas and help you make some important decisions.  As well, there are some terrific electronic resources available on-line.

 The  Knot Ultimate Wedding Lookbook : more than1,000 cakes, centerpieces, bouquets, dresses, decorations, and ideas for theperfect day by Carley Roney is organized into colour themes which is a great way to get an overall picture of how things can go together.
To compliment this, have a look at The Knot website.  You will need to register, but it is a good site and worth that extra step.  The Martha Stewart Weddings website is a site that is also full of great colour combinations, as well as lots of beautiful and creative decorating ideas.

A Bride's Book of Lists :everything you need to plan the perfect wedding by Marsha Heckman has as it says, everything, including the things you hadn't even thought about yet. With the help of this book, you won't miss a thing.

The New-fashioned Wedding :designing your artful, modern, crafty, textured, sophisticated celebration  by Paige Appel is certainly worth a look, it has lots of great ideas.  These and many others are sure to spark some inspiration. 

We really can't forget about Pinterest"Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing things you love."  I really, really like this social media tool, especially for collecting and sorting out ideas, it is a graphical representation for websites, like bookmarks, but with pictures. Within Pinterest, you search for things like "yellow wedding bouquets" and you will get lots of images for your search.  You can then repin them to your Pinterest account.  When you go back to your account later you just need to click on that image and go to the website where it was pinned from.  It is much better than having a list of websites where you can't remember which one had that grey bridesmaids' dress that you really liked.  It is also great for do-it-yourself crafts, recipes, knitting patterns, well actually, just about anything.
