If you have read my blog before, then you have seen other posts about her. Wedding and event planner, interior designer, author, and invitation designer Diann Valentine is now the host and co-executive producer of another great wedding show on We tv! Diann has designed weddings for well known celebrities such as Usher, Lela Rochon, Martin Lawrence, Kelis, Jennifer Williams, Shawn Stockman, and Toni Braxton.
I Do Over premiers on Sunday July 24TH. On the show, Diann gives six couples with wedding disasters the opportunity for a "do over". They pull out all the stops to give the couples the weddings of their dreams. That includes the venue, caterers, the gowns, musician, decor, and all the the other many details that it takes to design, plan, and execute a fabulous wedding.
Brides, if you want to get inspired and see how wedding dream can come true, then I Do Over is not to be missed!

Food trucks have been popular in other cities such as New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles for years. I am happy that they have recently come to Atlanta. I am a big fan of creativity, so I am delighted that some couples are incorporating them in their wedding celebration.
Your guest will be delighted to eat simply delicious food. Some great items that Atlanta food trucks serve are sliders, tacos, hot dogs, burritos, fries, cupcakes, cookies, and Popsicles.

A recent Association of Bridal Consultants Atlanta meeting is my inspiration for this post. I enjoy being an active member of this organization so much so that I assist in planning our regular meetings. This particular meeting was about transforming a room with lighting.
You have several options to choose from such as break up patterns, pin spotting centerpieces or washing the walls with color. Here are some beautiful pictures I found where lighting did just that at wedding receptions.
Remember to include lighting in your wedding planning budget.

I am always eager to learn how to grow my business and make it better for my clients and myself. So I regularly attend conferences and networking events.
Last week, I attended Inspire Smart Success produced by Stacie Francombe. It was more than just a conference, it was an Experience. Look at all the great speakers that we got to learn from. They are top wedding and event industry planners, designers, caterers, producers, publishers, and owners of their own businesses who have been in front of or behind the scenes of television and magazines.
We took several breaks throughout the day to eat breakfast, lunch, and network with the speakers and each other.
The speakers lounged on white leather couches while taking turns telling us about their experiences and answering lots of questions from the attendees.
The view from our W Hotel ballroom was a breath taking view of Midtown Atlanta.
Towards the end of the day, we were delighted to indulge in the dessert bar.
I was so glad that I was able to be a part of this Experience!
