Become a Top Wedding Planner – Wedding Planning Tips from Celebrity Weddings

 

Gavin Newsom and Jennifer Siebel Wedding - AP

As you study to become a top wedding planner, you will read a lot of information about celebrity weddings.  While most of them have elements only a celebrity’s budget can afford, you can “borrow” ideas to create memorable, but affordable, weddings for your brides. The Spring/Summer 2009 edition of Town and Country Weddings magazine featured a story on the wedding of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and actress Jennifer Siebel.  Here are some ideas to borrow from their wedding day:

Theme – “Out of Africa” in Montana.  The couple’s honeymoon was in Africa, the wedding took place in Montana.  You can use the honeymoon destination as the theme.  If you want to use “Out of Africa” theme, watch the movie with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford for ideas for style and decor.

Invitations – featured a bucking bronco, a nod to the Montana part of the theme.  Your bride can incorporate a design element from her theme and put it on all of her stationery.

Rehearsal Dinner – in keeping with the theme, it took place in a barn with an electric bucking bull, square dancing and a fiddler.  A couple doesn’t need to have a formal, sit-down dinner at a restaurant.  An informal, fun event that keeps to the wedding theme may cost less than a traditional rehearsal dinner and give everyone a chance to relax before the big day.

Location – Outdoors, on a ranch and dinner was set up at long tables, just like on a ranch.  The table settings were of china and crystal but you could make it much more informal.  A dance floor was constructed outdoors.

Food – Local food served family style.  In this case, local food carried out the theme and location of the event.  Using local food is always a good choice, it is often fresher and less expensive.

From now on, ask yourself the question, “What ideas can I borrow?”, when reading articles on celebrity weddings.
