This year I'm calling it like it is -- before it even happens. Behold my official holiday schedule, the way it's really going down.
There are millions of articles out there, and plenty of conflicting pieces of information. Truthfully though, if planning a wedding was just as easy as surfing the web, then planners, including yours truly, would be out of a job.
Parties are one of life's true pleasures, but planning them can be a real problem. After all, there's food to prepare, a venue to secure, entertainmen...
As a wedding planner, I tend to gravitate toward reality shows that focus on wedding planning and social events in general. I'm addicted to bridal gown shows, and love when reality stars have "events" on episodes of their show. What I don't love seeing is the planner getting destroyed for the sake of ratings.
In a time when over-the-top celebrity weddings (cough, cough Kim Kardashian & Kanye West cough, cough) seem to be the norm and the pressure of achievi...
There's a good reason to have children before you get married: your daughter can be your flower girl and significantly magnify the guest gasp factor.
Engaged? (Congrats) Planning a wedding? (Pop the Prosecco...because Champagne is tired). Doing it alone and without a Planner? (Eh. Mah. Gawd.) Here are the top 5 things you need to know!
Never send an email that says "What do you charge?" or any other form of that question. Sure, you need to know the costs to see if you can even afford the vendor -- I get it. But you aren't picking up a pair of shoes here.

As long as you have good people and good food (and your favorite team is winning), your halftime is sure to be a touchdown with your guests!
Kiss someone at midnight. I'm not necessarily talking about a wet sloppy kiss here, I'm just sayin'... whether it's your boyfriend, your best friend or your baby, make sure you're feeling the love at midnight. It will start your 2015 off right!
As the host, you get to call the shots. Serve crowd-pleasing wines that appeal to you. Or pick a theme for your party and create a signature cocktail -- still a huge trend going into 2015.
At every wedding, you'll find the drunk uncle, the weeping sorority sister, the people who are only there for the food, the girl who really thinks she can dance and the girls who actually can't dance, but they can JUMP! A LOT!
That is what a successful party needs... a delightful and welcoming hostess. You don't need a large home, a lot of money, elaborate food or entertainment. I have gone to very wealthy parties given by friends, which I am sorry to say, were boring. So what is my trick? I enjoy the art of entertaining.
