Become a Top Wedding Planner – Wedding Planner Tips From Preston Bailey


I blogged about learning the event and wedding planning process from Preston Bailey and Marcy Blum during their mentoring weekend in March and though many were interested, few could attend.

So I thought you might like to see this video of Preston on Entertainment Tonight, talking about his wedding planning process and his work designing the October 25, 2009 wedding of Ivanka Trump.

Also, the March/April 2010 issue of Bridal Guide magazine has an article entitled “Visions in White” that has photos of the work Preston did for Ivanka’s white themed wedding reception. It was held in a white tent. All the flowers were white: lilies of the valley, hydrangeas, orchids, ranunculus, roses and gardenias, arranged in three different ways on the tables. He also used crystal candelabras and white pillar candles. The accent color was gold and was seen on the Chiavari chairs, the rims of the china and crystal and the embroidered napkins.

If you have never seen any of Preston Bailey’s designs, check out his website. The photo below from the site.
