What's your idea of Table Number?

Often time I have bride come to me and ask for ideas for Table Number. The most easiest way to do, of course, is by putting number only. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's boring. If you choose the right font and right style to put on your escort card and table, it can look elegant and change the theme of how you want your reception to be. :) For example, a symbol that represent the two of you with the number.

However, most of the time, I would suggest bride to be more creative. Think of something that represent the both of you and make each table be more meaningful and fun to you reception. For example:

  • Places you've been together
  • Word that describe your personality
  • Word that describe your wedding theme
  • Word that describe your relationship and how important you to each other
  • To make it fun, you can even group your guests as, Singles at "The Singles Table", Siblings at "Kids Table", Parents at "Grown-Ups Table", etc.
  • Or how about make it a puzzle? So when guests chit-chat on where their tables, they may realize when the read all the table's name together, it will become a sentence or a word. And you can actually make it a game. Whoever read it first in a correct format, he/she will win a price.

If you have a videographer, make sure they capture this special moment when guests are finding their tables. It'll be fun to see your guests reaction later on, plus showing your creativity to make your wedding more memorable to you.

Hope this will give you more ideas if you are about or going to make your table number. ;-)

Happy Planning~!~

Ideas for Floral Arrangement

I recently when to a NACE meeting at the San Jose Museum of Art and saw some great floral arrangements that I would like to share with you the ideas and of course, the look. I was surprised when I first saw the arrangements. They are gorgeous and fun! Each of them represented a theme and the creativity of the artist. I'm glad to meet with the expert on the night. :)

From my point of view, I think it's important to find a florist who is creative and fun to work with. Also, making sure they will provide the best/fresh flowers on the day of as well as long lasting (at least 4 days). Some flowers I've seem, they only last for few hours and turn old. Small tips for you when looking for florist: ASK...

  • When will they prepare your arrangements
  • When will they buy the flowers.

This is very important to know if they buy it a week prior your wedding or not. If it is a week, the flowers will most likely keep in the freezer, which means, flowers will be frozen for the whole week till you receive it on the day of your wedding. Most florists will buy the flowers few days prior your wedding day, and that will for sure, gives you a best, long lasting flowers during and after your wedding. ;-)

Diane and Daniel Choi -- September 15, 2007

Congratulation to the sweet couple Mr. and Mrs. Choi!!

I remembered when I first met with Diane, she is already a sweet person and excited about her wedding as she shared her ideas on her big day. On their rehearsal day, I can definitely feel their love and having all their best friends blessing by telling their stories.

Then when I saw Diane walk down the aisle, I felt like I was watching my friend walking down the aisle. This is an amazing feeling that I am glad to be part of their wedding. All my best wishes to this sweet couple all the way to Utah!!

Recap on Bridal Extravaganza 9-9-2007

It was a great show at Bridal Extravaganza this past Sunday! I got to see a lot of Brides and Grooms-to-be going to the show and getting to plan their wedding together. It is always good to see the groom attention of being involved in the planning process. Wedding is not only the Bride's day! It's also the Groom's day!! Because he will be the one who the bride will look at on this special day and beyond. Through the planning process, this gives the two opportunity to know more each other better and overall, having a great and fun time doing something together. :)

Here are some photos from the show:
