Review from Bride and Groom

Tuesday, November 23, 2010
As an organized Do It Yourself (DIY) bride on a budget a wedding planner did not enter my stream of thought, until I met Lori Losee. After my initial meeting with Lori in Washington, I went home and told my husband-to-be that I needed a wedding planner because I was starting to worry about the timeline and who was going to keep everything organized on the big day. He reluctantly decided to set up a phone call with Lori after our conversation with Lori he said “your right who is going to run our wedding, and make sure everything goes as planned?” that’s when we decided it was critical to hire Lori as our day of Wedding Planner!
From the day we hired Lori she was on the ground running, contacting our vendors to introduce her self and talk about the details of our big day. As the final two weeks before our wedding approached and we had final meetings with all of our vendors we were delighted to hear that they were all as impressed with Lori as we were.
When Lori arrived in California for our rehearsal dinner and started to run the rehearsal we knew we made the right decision. We did not have to worry about who walked who down the aisle or where people stood instead we could enjoy this special time with family and friends, and when people asked us questions all we had to do was say “Ask Lori the wedding planner!”
As a DIY bride I had many tasks that need to be accomplished on the wedding day to turn my vision in to a reality, and Lori did not shy away from my boxes of things that needed to be set up. When we walked in to our venue on our wedding day and saw the room set up with the table names, place cards, menus, chair covers, favors, programs, and water bottles I knew Lori had been hard at work all day, but she still found time to check on me and my husband as we got ready for the big day. We had so many compliments about how well-organized and wonderful our ceremony and reception were ran, which we owe to Lori.
Every bride should be so blessed to have a wedding planner that is caring, calm, resourceful, organized and a pleasure to be around. For any out of town brides that are considering hiring Lori don’t let the distance be a deterrent, she could not have done a better job if she had been in California with us every step of the way. Our wedding day would not have turned out so beautiful without your handwork and dedication. We can truly say without Lori Losee we would not have been able to enjoy our wedding day worry free!
Thank you Lori!

Alternatives to "Guest Books"

Monday, November 8, 2010
Wanting something different than the traditional wedding guest book. Well, not to fear, there are several alternatives for your "guest book." From a photo album with your engagement photos to a photo mat with well-wishes to a "giving tree" of congratulations, the best way to find just the right "guest book" for your wedding is simply looking at your overall theme of your wedding or your venue.

This summer, I was witness to several creative brides who wanted more from their parents or grandparents guest book. One bride used an old typewriter for guests to type in their wishes. Another bride utilized their guests thumb prints on a painted tree. To another bride whose fall themed wedding wanted a wishing tree for guests to write their thoughts on leaves and hang them up on branches.

Other ideas I found online were personalized plates, wine bottles for signatures to postcards to my new favorite - a puzzle, a great keepsake.

No matter what you choose, having some sort of guest book is a great way to preserve the memory of those individuals who came to celebrate your wedding day.

Testimonial from Bride and Groom

A big thank you to Lori for being our support system throughout the planning process. Each conversation with her made things feel more doable. Every idea we had for the wedding, whether big or small Lori made it happen or helped us figure out a way to work it out. She was there like a best friend through the process. I never thought I would freak out but I did get extremely stressed at times and she found a way to calm me down and put every fire out!
