What a great experience we had on Friday, October 22 decorating the set for the 9th Anniversary celebration “Good Things Utah” they were having. We created a balloon arch and a small balloon wall with additional balloons to fill the stage. We also created balloon bouquets to be behind the cast in the kitchen set. Take a look at the video link and see how the stage looked and what they had to say about Merry Bee’s Events.
Good Things Utah 9th Birthday Celebration
How fun it was to meet and greet so many beautiful brides and their family and friends. There were many grooms there also being supportive and giving the impression that they were having a great time walking from vendor to vendor.
The visitors to our booth were able to see samples of what our preferred vendors can provide in quality and in excellence of taste. Our booth showed pictures from several of our events and MarDel Photography provided some enlarged pictures to display. How grateful we are for our preferred vendors that help to make our bride’s day memorable and affordable. We had 500 mini cupcakes made by Dippidee and those cupcakes were gone within 3 hours!! We also gave out mints, chocolate and bubble wands.
We also had a drawing for a $100 gift card from Bed, Bath & Beyond and a $50 gift certificate from Dippidee. Our lucky winners are Bria R of the $100 gift card and Nicole K of the $50 gift card. Look forward to being able to meet and give them their prize.
We are excited to be working with so many brides in the upcoming months as their special day draws near. I LOVE MY WORK!!
If you missed us at this bridal show be sure to look for us at the Grand America on January 14, 2012.
It seems that when you are planning a 2nd marriage the couple wants to do something special and unique from their first marriages (not that 1st marriages can’t do the same!). So here are some favorite locations to have your wedding and honeymoon all in one trip! We, at Merry Bee’s Events, can help you plan that get-a-way wedding/honeymoon. They are fun, exciting and exhilarating.
#1 Mexico … Mexico entices couples with its warm, sunny weather, colorful culture, extensive coastline, spicy cuisine, and wide choice of accommodations.
#2 Jamaica … A lush island, Jamaica has beaches, waterfalls, mountains to explore. Add in more all inclusives than anywhere else in the Caribbean and a reggae beat, and it’s no wonder it’s so popular with couples who want a destination wedding followed by a beach honeymoon.
#3 Dominican Republic … The Dominican Republic has both fine boutique hotels and price-competitive all-inclusives.
#4 Bahamas … The beautiful Bahamas, just off the coast of Florida, offer couples everything from 24/7 excitement to total laid back bliss, depending on whether they opt for developed Nassau, Freeport, Paradise, and Grand Bahama Island or one of the low-key Out Islands.
#5 Hawaii … It’s a long flight to Hawaii from just about anywhere, yet couples flock to the state’s gorgeous islands in order to have a memorable destination wedding in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Pictured: Wedding couple at Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii. The property contains the first free-standing, resort wedding chapel in Waikiki. It is surrounded by lush landscaping, romantic waterfalls, and a lagoon.
#6 Aruba … Dry Aruba, south of the hurricane zone, welcomes wedding couples year-round. Its clean, wide beaches beckon lovers by day, and its dozen-or-so casinos keep the action going till the wee hours.
#7 Fiji … Exotic Fiji, with its gentle culture and castaway-island charm, is the choice of couples who want an unusual getaway-from-it-all wedding destination.
#8 Cruise … Not only are cruise weddings affordable, they give a couple an opportunity to sail on their honeymoon to a variety of ports immediately following the wedding. Many ships have dedicated wedding chapels and can also arrange port-side weddings.
#9 Europe … Historic and romantic, Europe’s great cities and small villages alike provide unforgettable settings for destination weddings. However, many countries within Europe have stringent requirements for marriage that can include a long residency period. For this reason, many couples who want a destination wedding in Europe first marry at home and then have a symbolic ceremony in Europe
The Meaning Behind The Myths
There are many wedding myths and superstitions most are based on events or omens that are said to foretell either good luck or bad luck. Ironically, some myths have both positive and negative connotations. Like all superstitions wedding myths have no scientific basis however, it never hurts to keep them in mind just in case!
Wearing pearls: this is one of those wedding myths with both bad luck and good luck meanings. The ominous version of this myth holds that pearls represent future tears; thus wearing them will bring many tears and heartache in the marriage. The luckier version of this implies that the pearls take the place of the bride’s real tears, thus she’ll have a happy, tear-free wedding.
Rain on the wedding day: this is another good luck – bad luck wedding myth. In the good luck version, rain is said to foretell the coming of children just as rain promotes growth in the farmer’s fields. In the unlucky version, rain drops represent the many tears a bride will cry throughout her marriage.
Time of day to get married: the couple should exchange their vows as the clock’s minute hand is moving upwards, therefore any time half past the hour, for example 2:30 or 4:45. The upward movement is said to bring blessings upon the couple as the minute hand is “ascending towards heaven.”
Tears on the wedding day: it is considered good luck for the bride to cry during her wedding. She will have cried all her tears away leaving none for the marriage. Another theory holds that a bride’s tears are good luck as they bring rain for the crops.
These are just a few of the myths that are out there. Just thoughts to ponder but not over dwell on.
Did you know that the average bride spends $2,000 on flowers for her wedding? What do you do with the flowers afterwards? So often the inside of the trash bins see these beautiful and colorful arrangements. In a recent article in the Washington Post we are now hearing of florists who are recycling by giving the flowers to charitable locations. Sarah von Pollaro, floral designer, said: “I believe that all people should have flowers in their life and especially people who might not be able to afford to buy them on a regular basis.”
Also, donating to nursing homes, where the patients at these facilities do not get a ton of visitors and they enjoy the flowers immensely, is an excellent idea. Their reaction is always positive. But you can also choose to have your arrangements of hydrangeas, coxcomb, roses and lavender, which dry well and can be kept on display long after the last dance. Did you know that you can also strip some flowers from your bouquet and press them in a book. The pressed flowers can then be glued in scrapbooks, placed with an invitation and framed or used as potpourri.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Park City, Utah. While there we were taking the opportunity to ride on the Alpine Slide. At the top of the ride we noticed nestled back under the trees a gazebo and white chairs. Then along came the wedding party and the bride with her father. How magical it was to see this wedding taking place on the mountainside in a very unique wedding venue.
So, if you have ever thought about where you might want a wedding that is different than the norm…Merry Bee’s Events can help you discover that unique venue for your special day.
