The Non-Cake Wedding Cake

Well below are some fun options for the Non-Cake Wedding Cake:

Amazing Review!

My wonderful bride and groom's heartlfelt thank you letter:

Jen was AMAZING. Honestly, there are no words that can describe what she did for us, celebrate! was beyond amazing. At first, I was undecided about hiring a planner, but after meeting with Jen from celebrate! I knew that because she was so professional and experienced, it was worth the extra money to hire her. I had no idea at that time how truly PRICELESS what she did for us would be. At our wedding, we had many crazy things happen- the best man was in an accident and couldn't make the wedding because he was in the hospital, our florist was 2 hours late with the flowers, table linens and decorations- you name it, it happened.I could not believe there was so much craziness, we are not dramatic people, and I never in my wildest dreams imagined that that would be "our" day. Despite the chaos, somehow Jen brought it all together and our guests had no idea. Steve and I want to thank Jen and celebrate! from the bottom of our hearts, because without her, we would not have had a reception set up at all. She was the heroine of the day, and we will always be so thankful we found her. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding coordinator- let me tell you, YOU SHOULD HIRE celebrate! Not just any wedding planner would have been able to handle what Jen was faced with, and not only did she pull everything together, but she was professional, calm and efficient in everything that she did. Jen, thank you for everything that you have done for us, we will never forget you and wish you the very best. You are a wonderful person and we are so lucky to have had you with us on our wedding day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Much love, Danielle and Steve- Lady Lake, FL

Feathers, Feathers, and More Feathers

Incorporating feathers into your wedding day decor is a hot new trend for 2010. You can add this special accent to your wedding dress, your invitations, and your centerpieces. The feathers add a fun texture to your wedding and will give it an unique concept that many couples prior to you have not used for their wedding decor. Here are some fun options to add feathers:
This breathtaking wedding dress has white feathers as its skirt
This invitation is dressed with funky black feathers to add texture
This cake is topped with a headdress of white feathers
The floral designer used all feathers for this centerpiece
The bride accented her simply hair style with a funky hair piece composed of feathers

Hillery and Ricky

We just received this sweet thank you note from one of our February brides. Jen and I absolutely loved planning Hillery and Ricky's wedding and feel so blessed to have been able to be part of their wedding. Here is the note:
"Hey Jenna,
I am still on cloud 9. The day was magical and it wouldn't have been that way without you, Jen, and Sam. Ricky was so happy, my dad was blown away, and I am finally glad that I didn't just go to the courthouse.
I have received so many compliments on the design of the event...the color combination, the florals, was absolutely beautiful. I can't thank you enough.
Stayed tuned for Hillery and Ricky's wedding day photos.
