'Tis the Season

In the event industry, everyone knows when summer comes to an end... the phones start ringing off the hook!  And in the last week it appears that we have entered into the event season once again.

I have been speaking and meeting with many prospective clients recently and I often get asked "I want to get married in three months, is that enough time to plan something?".  Absolutely!  Obviously the more time you have to plan, the more options you have available to you.  But for many different reasons some people don't want to wait as long - and that's okay.  Whether you have 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years to plan, a professional planner can help you achieve the perfect style and vision you want for your day.

So before you stress and think time is running out, call me.  I'm here to help.

It's Official... We're Official!!

We are proud to announce that Divine Creations Event Planning Specialists has become an official vendor for the Super Bowl!  It was a fairly lengthy process between obtaining our MBE (women and minority owned business) certification through the State of Florida and also being approved by the Super Bowl Host Committee.  But it was well worth it! 

Check back to our website soon, as we will be adding a new page specifically for the Super Bowl!

Jenny, Dan and the Back-Up Plan

As I drove over the Gandy Bridge the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, I looked out to the white caps in the Gulf and thought "uh oh".  Today is the day that Jenny and Dan have been planning for so long and who would have known that Gustav, although thankfully not threatening Florida directly, was still giving us wind gusts that made me drive with two hands on the wheel at all times.  All I could think about was what if one of those gusts comes along and knocks down their chuppah in the middle of their outside ceremony.IMG_1613

As I pulled up to the Vinoy for set-up my cell phone rang.  It was Jenny.  As I prepared to give her my recommendation of pulling the ceremony inside, she said "my parents and I think we should change the ceremony to our back-up location".  Whew.  I never want to be the bearer of bad news, but I also don't want a downpour to occur while 200 guests are watching the bride make her entrance or witness her mom's wedding veil tear off the top of the chuppah in the wind.  That is why I always, always have a Plan B.

I understand the attraction of wanting an outdoor wedding, especially in Florida.  But as we know, Mother Nature can have a mind of her own.  Make sure that if planning any portion of your event outside, the venue is holding back-up space during that exact same time inside AND that it is written in your contract.  Fortunately Jenny and Dan understood that moving their wedding inside, while not what they pictured, was far better than wind blown hair, wet guests and a soggy mood for their reception!
