~SEMI Planner Pick~ Signature Fragrance for the Bride to Be!

A Signature Fragrance for the Bride to Be? ABSOLUTELY! How would you like to create your very own unique fragrance to remind you of your wedding day forever? Well, now it is possible! Urban Botanic are the makers of this incredible craze that is buzzing in the bridal arena. With a little guidance from a trained scent consultant, you can create a scent that you love, your friends will ask about, but only you can wear. The possibilities are endless. Create a scent based on your mood, the season, or even to project your attitude. Are you feeling energetic... optimistic... elegant... sexy? Anyone can make quality perfume, lotion, and other bath products. But only you can make a scent that's original, unique, and, well... YOU!

The most original part of creating your own signature fragrance is the absolutely engaging personality test that you take online at Urban Botanic Personality Test. This test is the first step to creating your signature scent. It has been scientifically developed to help guide you to your fragrance family. Are you fruity, floral, herby, leafy, woodsy or spicy? The test has six sections and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Just relax and choose the best answer that fits you.

After finding out your personal fragrance family, you engage in shopping for the "notes" or single scents you love that become the base for your creation. With a little guidance from a UB fragrance designer, you can batch yourself up a shower gel, bubble bath, lotion, or perfune in less than 2 hours. Prices range from $12.50 - $24.95 per product which allows this "luxury" to become affordable and FUN!

Plus, not only can you create a unique fragrance that will remind you of your special day forever, but you can reward your bridal attendants by allowing them to create their own signature fragrance as your thank you for their participation. A gift they will honestly cherish and become very fond of always!

We think it's a FABULOUS idea to have your own signature fragrance for your wedding day; which makes this a SEMI Planner Pick!

Inside the Wedding Planner's White Book

This week we are excited to feature Jana Stall with Events in Bloom. Jana does floral artistry for weddings and special events. She is so creative and always pushing herself to the creativity limits with flowers. She is truly talented and loves what she does; it's inspiring! Here is what she had to say in our questionnaire.

What do you love most about weddings? Seeing the reception room put together, right before it starts.
How do you continue to challenge yourself in this industry? I am constantly looking for new designs/ideas/concepts for wedding flowers so I’m not producing the same items over and over.
What do you think is the most important thing each couple that works with you needs to know?
That I’m not just concerned about flowers, I want to help them make their wedding have a very cohesive look. I try to make each bride aware of other important elements that she needs to consider to make her day memorable.

The famous Bernard Pivot questionnaire:

What is your favorite word?
What is your least favorite word?
Whatever If you have teenagers you will totally get that one!
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Having someone give me free reign to design whatever I want for their event.
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
When a bride won’t think outside the box. A bride that is happy with what everyone else does and doesn’t want to make a wedding her own.
What sound or noise do you love?
What sound or noise do you hate? Eating sounds. Chomping, slurping, smacking. Etc.
What is your favorite curse word? Bob Sagit
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Photographer or Graphic Designer
What profession would you not like to do?
The guy on the street corner holding a sign in a dog suit
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Thank you for enriching so many peoples lives.

Thanks Jana! You can view more of Jana's beautiful work at!

Inside the Wedding Planner's White Book

This week our featured guest is Becky Johnson with Becky Johnson Studios. Becky is an accomplished photographer and her work speaks for itself . As an artist, her main desire is to capture the moments that speak to each and everyone of her clients from the first time you look at them to the fiftieth time you look at them. Read what she has to say in our interview below. Thanks Becky! You are amazing!

What do you love most about weddings?
I have been involved in photographing weddings for more than 15 years and it never gets old. I think the most enjoyable factor, is the energy of a wedding – the challenge that it presents as an artist. I have said and will continue to say, that weddings present the biggest challenges in the photographic world. It is a one-time chance to get something right. There are no re-takes, no pauses, no second chances. You rarely have “the perfect lighting” and sometimes not the perfect situation, but you know how to adapt and think on your feet. This is something that a photographer can only achieve through years of experience in shooting weddings. I love working with people and I think that having that gift works symbiotically with shooting well. Weddings are so chock full of folks from different cultures, ages and belief systems, that it really is a very energetic and dynamic event – and that is part of what makes it so much fun!

How do you continue to challenge yourself in this industry?
In the industry right now, let’s face it – there are a ton of everyday people, taking big risks – buying photographic equipment and taking the plunge because they really love photography. Many of them are turning to shooting weddings because they think the money is great – shoot a little on the weekends, maintain a full-time job on the weekdays and get that extra $500 a week. Truth is, the seasoned, full-time wedding photographer, could never make a proper living on charging $500 a wedding. These folks who do it to earn extra cash, may not have the proper insurances, carry back-up equipment or really have a clue as to how to properly shoot a wedding. I challenge my business by learning how to separate myself in my branding, marketing and shooting style. If you really look at wedding photography – beyond the price sheets, beyond the gimmicky sales pitches, taking all of that away – look at the substance of what you are buying. The art of it all. I have to challenge myself to always explore being a better artist than what I was yesterday, that is what will ultimately separate me from the crowd.

What do you think is the most important thing each couple that works with you needs to know?
THE single most important thing, is that this is an art. This is all by Becky Johnson and for my client. I am not a convenience store photographer – the gimmick of convenience is great, get in fast, pay a higher price, get out quick – all while the motor is still running. But a true artist – one who really cares about their craft – is not going to churn and spit out this labor of love like a convenience store purchase. Good work takes time. This is my craft. My passion. I do not hire a team of photographers and throw someone in the line up to the wolves the day of your wedding – you get me. I do not send my images off to an image edit warehouse – every image is edited with my style and only the way I see it, from capture to finish. I do not have some person 1000 miles away designing my albums – they cannot see a design the way I see a design. Only one person knows my client best, and that’s me. I’d rather shoot 25 weddings a year and know the people I call my clients, than churn out 150 weddings a year and treat my clients like a number. I feel that if I know my couples well enough, it gives my work a deeper meaning - and what you get as a service and product is more meaningful. It’s richer, more intimate and more personable. Isn’t that how your marriage is? So the one lasting purchase of your wedding, should reflect the same care and intimacy as the union itself.

Bernard Pivot's Famous Questionnaire
What is your favorite word? I can’t say I have one favorite word – but a few are; live, faith, love, strength
What is your least favorite word? hate
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Speaking about my business, when a client feels good about the images I produce for them.
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally? People who place such little value on my service to them or the craft as a whole. That pertains to both consumers and professionals.
What sound or noise do you love? Absolutely, the fatty giggle gurgle of a baby.
What sound or noise do you hate? Chewing.
What is your favorite curse word? A word that is not allowed anywhere near a TV camera.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I always thought if I had to get another job, it would be a snake milker for Discovery Channel.
What profession would you not like to do? I wouldn’t want to be a chicken sexer.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Heaven exists and God would say, “Becky, you are funny, but you ain’t THAT funny.”

TRENDS & STYLE ~ 2010 Wedding Forecast

Here are the top 10 wedding trends for 2010 from our friends at!

1. Back to Basics ~ Events will focus on the attention to the details, the foundation of the event, not the drama or grandeur of the evening. Consider spending more on the lasting memories than the showmanship of the event. Spend a bit more than the average budget allotment on photography mediums rather than abundant floral. Or consider a bit of a longer stay on your honeymoon and a little less of a party at the reception and you’ll be grateful for your decision in the end.

2. Home Weddings Hit Home ~ Intimate and personal affairs in the backyard are bigger than ever. Going home incorporates the continued trend of personalizing the wedding day experience. Smaller size guest lists, more intimate settings, grass roots weddings, elegant and detail driven, but in no way small on what counts.

3. Buttercream on the Big Day ~ Fondant is falling behind, buttercream corners the market. Tools and techniques now allow for buttercream to look as smooth as fondant when applied by a skilled artist. You have the option of better flavor, more natural ingredients, and less costly cakes that no longer suffer or lack in design.

4. Favor Comeback ~ Personalized appreciation is back. The effect that an event has on the guests is more noticeable than ever before so the importance of a favor is felt more than ever. Be sure to appreciate to those in attendance - it’s not just an afterthought, omission, or generic item. Think local artisans, locally grown products, personal mementos, and on-the-spot print outs.

5. Nearby Destinations ~ Nearby destination weddings are taking flight over the exotic and far off locales. The ever popular destination wedding will remain but guests will get out of town by car (within driving distance) so couples can create a weekend, guests get an escape, but no one breaks the bank. Enjoying the US destination locations, spend within your own local economies, create a greener effect, experience undiscovered backyards, and stay sensible about cost while you’re at away.

6. Colors ~ Monochromatic palettes - this doesn’t mean muted colors, just single color bunches. Vibrant Colors: Orange, green, yellow, and pink. Metal Colors: Gold, silver, copper, and pewter. And black is definitely the new black. Break the rules and show off the darker side of your event.

7. Greener Conscience ~ Immerging will be the newest phase of eco-conscience: A better understanding of the gray shades of green. You will see more emphasis on the smaller changes that are less recognizable to the guest (i.e. cleaning green, composting, solar and LED lighting, no more oasis in floral arrangements, less catering waste). It’s no longer about making the event appear “organic” – it’s about understanding how things are made, disposed of, and where/when events take place. Learning to make better choices that are unseen by the guest are just as important as those tree-free invitations everyone is talking about.

8. Video Integration into Events ~ We’ve all seen the photo montages of your childhoods during dinner but the next phase in video at your event comes in several different forms. Video DJ’s are immerging, allowing your dance party to dance to the visuals of the music videos; ceremonies are being broadcast on screens for better viewing from the back; and time lapse photography is being shot and integrated into video for current day montages of you and your fiancĂ©. Love to party? Set up crane camera and project the event as it unfolds on screens around the dance floor (budget permitting of course).

9. HD Video ~ Videographers have already gone hi-def. But next year all or most will make such a transition, making HD and even Blu Ray the norm in wedding videography. Upgrade now and appreciate the quality later. This also means smaller cameras on site and less intrusion into your event, all around a better (though more costly) option on the big day.

10. Visual Combinations ~ Professional grade still photo cameras like the Canon 5D Mark II DSLR are being released with HD video capabilities included. It is recommended to have both a videographer and a photographer at your wedding to capture every moment of the big day. Tech-savvy brides looking for a new experience, may like to experiment with a visual professional (videographer or photographer) who has this technology. In the future, you will begin to see an emergence of two-in-one companies. Companies like Engaging Films and Video Keepsakes of Beverly Hills in Los Angeles will shoot video and take stills, but use only one piece of technology.

~SEMI Etiquette Tips~ "What Should Your Guests Wear to Your Wedding?"

With all of the details surrounding your wedding day, one of the questions that may be on your mind is, "how do you want your guests to dress for the occasion?" Well, the answer to this question depends on you. What are you trying to create for your day? Are you trying to create a casual informal atmosphere or do you imagine a more formal environment? There are three categories of wedding attire that should be considered for your guests. They are formal, semi-formal, and informal. See from the descriptions below, which accomplishes the vision you are trying to create.

Formal Wedding Attire - The bride and her attendants wear long gowns in formal fabrics, and the groom and his attendants wear cutaways or tailcoats. Women guests wear street-length dressy clothing for a daytime wedding and usually floor-length gowns or cocktail dresses for an evening wedding. Men guests wear dark suits and ties for a daytime wedding and tuxedos for an evening. An evening formal wedding that requires white tie is the most formal of all.

Semi-Formal Wedding Attire - The bride and her attendants wear long, ballerina or tea-length gowns, usually made of simpler fabrics than those for a formal wedding. The groom and his attendants wear gray or black strollers with striped trousers or a formal suit for a daytime semi-formal wedding, and a dinner jacket with black trousers or a formal suit for an evening wedding. Women guests wear street length tailored or semi-dressy dresses for a daytime wedding and cocktail dresses for an evening wedding. Men guests wear dark suits for both.

Informal Wedding Attire - The bride and her attendants wear simple white or pastel floor-length gowns or ballerina, tea length, or street length dresses. The groom and his attendants wear suits or sport jackets and slacks. Women guests wear what is appropriate to the location, usually street-length dresses. Men guests wear sport jackets and slacks.
