Are you a Pie Bride?

A lot of couples are opting out of having the typical wedding cake. Oftentimes the cake sits there all night as a glorified centrepiece only to be cut by the Bride & Groom and served to the guests – who most likely won’t eat it. Trust me when I say, 2 out of 3 times we’re packing up half if not more of your cake and sending it home with you. So, if you’re a Bride who knows she can leave the cake behind and try something else, I’ve got good news – pies are a welcome alternative at weddings.
You can get pies in regular size, or mini…and now, even on a stick! You can also get pocket pies, which are like modern turnovers. You can offer a variety of flavours to satisfy the tastebuds of your guests and you can easily pack them up and ship them off with your guests at the end of the night so that you aren’t left with all that sweetness before you jet off on your honeymoon.
Pies are more rustic than cute. They provide a certain down-home-country feel than your typical desserts like creme brule, or even cupcakes. Pies can be made openfaced or with a lattes top or with a full top and a heartshaped cutout. And you can choose your flavours depending on the what’s available during the season you get married. Apple and pumpkin in the fall – peach and cherry in the summer.
Oftentimes I think that Brides know whether they are a Pie Bride or a Cake Bride (this includes cupcakes). You either like cute, fluffy, iced desserts, or you like sweet, flaky, classic desserts.

First Dance

What is your first dance song?
Is it the song you first heard while together, or a song sung at a concert you went to on a date?
Is it just a song that everytime you hear it you think of your sweetie?
Or do you have to search for your song so that the lyrics are just right for your first dance together as husband & wife?

There are many love songs out there to choose from.

Some of the most popular first dance songs according to Project Wedding are:

•Unforgettable by Nat King Cole

•The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra

•What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

•Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley

•At Last by Etta James

•It had to be You by Harry Connick Jr.

•A Kiss is Just a Kiss by Michael Feinstein

•Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers

•A Whole New World by Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle

•Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie
Don’t have a song picked out yet? Don’t stress – chat with your DJ for recommendations.
Also, think about songs that aren’t necessarily for weddings, but any love song or fun song will do.
One of my favourite songs is “And then he kissed me” by the Crystals. It’s a fun song about being in love – and falling for the man of your dreams I first heard it while watching “Adventures in Babysitting” as a young girl. I’m not sure if anyone has used this as their wedding song, or if anyone ever will….I’m still waiting.

B is for….

I get lots of emails asking if I am hiring. These girls want to know if they can be my Assistant – my helper – my right hand gal. Well, for the past 9 months I’ve had a sidekick that I adore; Brittany.
It’s almost too fitting that Brittany starts with B, like The Bride’s Butler. It was simply a coincidence that she emailed me and I just happened to need help at that time. Well, perhaps it wasn’t coincidence, maybe it was fate – depends on how deep we wanna go here. LOL!
Either way, I’m thrilled to have Britt working with me, learning alongside me and being there to help me bring Bride’s dreams to life.
Brittany’s also certified by WPIC (Wedding Planners Institute of Canada), so she’s a perfect match for The Bride’s Butler as I’m certified as well. She is passionate about weddings & events and has a keen eye for details. She enjoys making things pretty, and making people feel special.

She truly is a gem to have as an Assistant, and a friend.

Thank you Brittany for choosing me to introduce you to the wonderful world of weddings.
I look forward to executing many more “I do’s” with you as my right hand gal!
