I thought I might share what a typical day looks like during peak wedding season for me, just in case you were wondering what my job actually entails.
~Call three different vendors to confirm upcoming wedding plans
~Take another call from a vendor about changes
~Work on the timeline for one wedding
~Add songs to another bride's ceremony and reception plan
~Email back two brides about their questions
~Email another bride about her updated to-do list
~Finish working on reception layout for one of the brides
~Proof one brides menu and program wording
~Email bride about suggestions for vendors
~Say that I'm done for the day, but end up working on more timelines
~Go to bed
I really love this job! I hope everyone finds a job they love to do, because I really understand that saying now, "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life." It's not work, it's something I get to do!

I thought I would also share with you a few of my favorite things that I've found or been given by some of my brides:
This is a photo wall created by a bride for her guests to utilize at the rehearsal (http://www.kissthegroom.com/). It's a wood wall covered in wallpaper, and the pictures are from the bride and groom's family weddings. There are three cut-outs covered with empty frames. Then the guests can stick their heads in any of the three openings for a photo-op:
I love the use of ostrich feathers in bouquets, and two of my current weddings are doing shades of purple and plums so I thought I share this particular bouquet:
Before every bride's big day they have a "Must Shoot" list for their photographer. These are the pictures they have to have from the wedding day. This was one of my favorites when I was getting married, from another bride's getting ready shoot. She's just so beautiful and calm looking, right before she puts on her dress.
The last two photos were from www.theknot.com.
