Become a Top Wedding Planner – See What a Celebrity Wedding Designer Does for La La Vazquez’s Red Themed Wedding

 

Wedding Design - Ed Libby Events for La La Vazquez

What happens when there is a flexible budget for a wedding? For former MTV VJ La La Vazquez, it means she was able to hire wedding planner Mindy Weiss and wedding designer Ed Libby to help her create the wedding of her dreams. The wedding planning process is being shown on VH1’s show, La La’s Full Court Wedding.

I blogged about tips you can use from watching her wedding planner, from last week’s episode. This week, we got to see a mock-up of the wedding, designed by Ed Libby, at the actual venue, Cipriani 42nd Street in New York, and discovered how much the design elements of this celebrity wedding costs.

Venue – Cipriani 42nd Street – $150,000

Flowers and Lighting $163,000

Linens and fabric $32,000

Czechoslovakian glassware $6000

Dance floor of cherry red Plexiglas – $10,000

The groom, Carmelo Anthony, had chosen the red theme which was carried out in the invitations, flowers, linens, candles and cake. He also increased the number of guests, they started with 250 and were now at 400 (only 8 had RSVPed with “no”.  Which, wedding planner Mindy Weiss pointed out, meant 10 more tables, 10 more centerpieces and 100 more glasses (not to mention 100 more meals and servings of cake and liquor).

While this bride and groom had the means to go beyond their budget, your brides and grooms probably won’t. Part of your job will be to get them to manage their guest lists and to present ideas that help them stick to their budgets.

By the way, the show also followed La La as she planned Carmelo’s birthday party (at Philippe in West Hollywood), with the help of Mindy Weiss, and shopped for a $16,000 bracelet as his gift. Even she had to put that on a payment plan.

This show runs at 10:30pm Eastern Time on Sundays on VH1 but, oddly, it aired this morning at 10am on my HD channel so check you local listings for the time is airs in your area.
