I have to say I’m very excited for this weekend!  Not only is it the 4th of July, which is one of my favorite holidays (I’m a sucker for fireworks), but it is also the wedding weekend of my very best friend!  This was my first experience as a Maid of Honor, and as fun as the bridal shower and bachelorette party planning were, being a Maid of Honor is a lot of work! 

I’m lucky that through many of my clients, I have become a mini ‘wedding expert’ and was able to offer advice based on what I’ve learned from each of them.  Through my work with Blue Plate Catering, I was able to offer the latest bridal culinary trends.  My experience working with The Chicago School of Flower Design had me suggesting DIY flower décor tips (who would have thought I would ever have advice in that arena), and I found myself constantly encouraging the bride-to-be to visit ForYourParty.comto check out their custom wedding party favors, invitations and more.

I’m looking forward to seeing what pieces of advice she incorporates in her wedding but know that no matter what it will be a weekend to remember!
