A Shower for Baby Henry

by Ashley in Recent Events on March 6, 2011

It’s no big secret that I love weddings. But sometimes it’s really nice to switch things up a bit. On this particular occasion, I was hired by Amber (sister of the mom-to-be Amy) to help plan a baby shower for Baby Henry. We had just a short time frame to work with lots to book, but together Amber and I were able to pull off a super cute baby shower, if I may say so myself!

Since I’m sure you’re all itching to see, I’ll get straight to the pictures! Don’t judge the low quality, I’m no photographer…especially since I forgot the good camera at home!

Oscar Inspired Wedding Shoes

by Ashley in General on March 1, 2011

bonbonsruby satin1 300x275 Oscar Inspired Wedding ShoesI’m paying homage to my gals Brit Tucker (a.k.a. The Landlocked Bride) and Katie Saeger from Simply & Forever Event Planning on today’s blog post! They’re always posting super cute shoes on Tuesdays, Tuesday Shoesday to be exact…and well since the Oscars aired this past Sunday, we all experienced a plethora of hot shoes!

Some of the cutest ones came straight from the Stuart Weitman’s Red Carpet Collection. And here are a couple to feast your eyes on!

Speaking of which, if you’re on the hunt for some super cute wedding shoes for yourself or even the lovely ladies in your wedding party, then these shoes are sure to give you some ideas. Why not rock it out like some of our favorite Oscar celebs, especially if you can afford it, right?!? Don’t be shy on color or height. Think about making an impression on your wedding day with what’s on your freshly pedicured feet!

Much love Brit and Katie!

Happy 102nd Blog Post!!!

by Ashley in General on February 13, 2011

Alright, so if I had been paying better attention last week,  I would have noticed that VERY recently we hit our 100th blog post! Yowsa! That’s been a lot of writing.

In celebration of our 102nd blog post (this one), I decided I’d go ahead and do a top 10 list outlining the progression of Dishy Event Planning in 2010! In a somewhat chronological order…here is my time line of events:

  1. Started Dishy Event Planning.
  2. Blogged…A LOT!
  3. Joined the board of Wish Upon a Wedding St. Louis Chapter as Marketing Chair.
  4. Joined the board of ISES St. Louis Chapter as PR Director.
  5. Started the St. Louis Wedding Planner site…and toured some sweet venues!
  6. Met some amazing vendors and made new friends that I LOVE!
  7. Worked a few weddings and rocked them out!
  8. Blogged about those weddings…A LOT.
  9. Turned Dishy into an LLC.
  10. Started blogging for other sites – STL Weddings and St. Louis Wedding Club.

So yeah, that’s about where we stand 102 blog posts later! Long live Dishy!

by Ashley in General on February 3, 2011

STL Weddings3 Dishy Featured on STL Weddings: Part VYep, that’s right! We’re on our fifth post with STL weddings and well we like to think they just keep getting better. This time I decided to write about what I know best….why in the heck would a bride need a wedding planner!! It was hard to narrow the reasons down to just a few, but thankfully STL Weddings was kind enough to post the key ones I mentioned!

The post is called…are you ready for this one?…Why Hire a Wedding Planner?

I’m going over the top on titles here, so watch out now! Please take a minute to read my ramblings if you like…ESPECIALLY if you are a bride who is considering a wedding planner. Hint, hint…you probably could use one! :-)

Cheers!

How to Avoid Bridezilla Status

by Ashley in General | Weddings on January 25, 2011

1077748 bridal stance How to Avoid Bridezilla StatusWe’ve all seen it on television, the bride who just ever so slightly tips over the edge when something goes wrong during planning or on the day of her wedding.

She’s the bride who may just be stressed out enough to drop an f-bomb here or there when speaking to a family. She’s the bride that nobody wants to upset, but everyone is afraid to be around. That’s her. That’s the Bridezilla. Side note: You DO NOT want to be her!

One of my most favorite things in the world these days is sharing stunning photos from amazing weddings! In this case, Stephen Seward made that possible for Jenny and Ryan, our November 6, 2010 bride and groom! Not only was Stephen great to work with but he had a sneak peek within days of the wedding, which I absolutely LOVE! So let’s take a look!
