Who Am I! I read this post written by @prestonrbailey about COMMON MISTAKES WEDDING PROFESSIONALS MAKE WEARING MORE THAN ONE HAT. "Many of you may have noticed that our industry is changing. Most vendors are very happy in their chosen field because it is their passion. Unfortunately, many vendors are also starting to find it difficult to wear only one hat." . . . "Planners are now working as floral designers. Florists are offering invitations and planning. Caterers are offering floral design and planning services. I even know of a band that offers floral design!" . . . . When I started my wedding planning business back in 2011 I also made the mistake that I could do it all. . . . Don't get it twisted, when I was planner, designer, caterer, manager and florist I was pretty good at juggling different hats, but I quickly realized that my strength were logistics, management and production, so I realigned my business, brought on my staff and LO & Behold Elite Events Management, Inc became a brand. . . . In our company we having a saying "Stay In Your Lane." . . . Allow me to reintroduce myself @iamtawandasims, your "Certified" Wedding Planner & Senior Events Manager.

I am known for my “no-nonsense” approach when it comes to planning weddings and events. #Salute #iammybrand #elitespeaks
Book your favorite vendor first. If you love their work, vibe and attitude, don’t procrastinate. The cream always rises to the top, good vendors are in high demand regardless of how saturated the market is! The old tactics of waiting someone out and seeing if they come down on pricing is dated and ineffective. . . . Also, let me add, I read a comment somewhere not to mention the word wedding to a vendor when you contact them about your wedding because they will increase their prices. I personally think that's a myth and would hope business professionals are not playing those types of games. However if you think this is happening to you keep searching. There are wedding professionals out here who are trustworthy and have your best interest at heart. . . . #bridaltip #weddingadvice #weddingtips #creative #weddinginspiration #weddingideas #weddingplanning #creativewedding #tipoftheday #weddingday #weddingblog #realweddingadvice #weddingprep #weddingtrends #luxuryweddings #realadvice #timesavingtips #eewedtips #financetips #weddingprofessional #weddingplanner

Cut The Cake!🍰 Have you ever wondered why brides and grooms cut the cake wedding cake together during their reception? . . . 💫 It symbolizes their union and promise to provide for each other. . . . ✨ It symbolizes the first task that the couple performs together. . . . Cake Tip: 🍰 You probably already know this or have seen other couples perform the cutting of the cake but remember to use the knife, not the server, for the quickest and cleanest cut. Slide the slice onto the server, then place it on a plate. Use the knife to cut the slice into two small pieces. You can each take your pieces from the same plate for the ceremonial feeding. . . . Lastly, It's important to take the time to design a cake that reflects the image of you. Keep in mind there are a lot of beautiful cake designs out there but make sure they taste as good as they look! Tag your favorite cake baker so they can chime in with other helpful tips.
The groom's cake is a golden opportunity to let the groom's tastes and personality shine through! If your groom is a @dallascowboys fan contact @bettyscakes she will custom design one for you.
