There are two contests that I highly recommend you enter. Both are offering $100,000 weddings and that’s a lot of candlelight and cake. If you are chosen as a lucky winner, let me know.

I adore this hotel. Perhaps my love of this English owned proper has a bit to do with where I attended graduate school…or…maybe its in England, where I learned to do a proper pub-crawl. In any case, The Crosby Street Hotel continues their extremely popular “Sunday Film Club NYC”. Every Sunday night, the latest movie releases (and some cool foreign films too) are shown with dinner or drinks in The Crosby Bar beforehand. I’m thinkin’, a great date night for you and your honey.

Happening very soon, but there are still a very few spots available for Bailey & Blum mentoring weekend, August 6-8 with Preston Bailey and Marcy Blum. With their own unique style, it’s unlike anything else out there. It’s hands on, it’s interactive, it’s one-on-one and lots of fun. So you say you want to be a wedding planner – NOW is your shot to learn how from two industry favorites. While I haven’t spoken personally spoken to Preston or Marcy, knowing these two…there will be lots of surprises in-store. Consider this an investment in your own rising star.
