Q & A with the Planners

1. What’s your wedding style?
MK: Romantic with a modern twist – a small and intimate affair is my ideal. Outdoor nuptials for romance and an indoor reception with entertainment for that modern twist!

CP: Vintage! I love the timeless, classic style that is simple elegance. The most important aspect for me is attention to detail.

2. Couples should splurge on …?
MK: I always encourage couples to narrow their list down to 3 “must haves” in order to figure out where they are willing to spend money and where they can save. For me, the venue would be number one. A great landscape or structural design can save you money on décor, as the beauty of the space will speak for itself. Oh, and food! Great food is a must.  

CP: It depends on what you are trying to achieve as your overall look. It also depends on your personal style. If you love flowers, then your centrepieces will be your splurge. Maybe you need an upgraded bar, or want your guests to take home a special favour. The trick is to have a balance that makes sense and does not blow the budget!

3. Couples should save money on?
MK: The cake. you don't have to ditch the cake completely, but keep in mind that there are so many beautiful, fun and inexpensive alternatives these days. Homemade cupcakes, traditional sweets … or even an ice cream truck! 

CP: Invitations. This has always been my opinion because at the end of the day this is going to be thrown away. There are so many great ways to save money by printing yourself or by using a simple design and a local print shop.

4. Current colour combinations?
MK: Whites with touches of cream and soft pink.  
CP: Cream and rose gold/blush. Vintage and classic combo.

5. Dream destination wedding?
MK: Turks and Caicos Islands
CP: Italy!

6. Favourite Wedding TV/Movie Scene?
MK: Although not a wedding scene, this exact exchange from the movie Love Actually always melts my heart:
[neither understands the other's language]
Jamie: [in English] It's my favorite time of day, driving you.
Aurelia: [in Portuguese] It's the saddest part of my day, leaving you.

CP: Father of the Bride. With Franc and the cake! And the swans!

7. Favourite part of the job?
MK: Creating! From small details for the ceremony to centerpieces for the reception – I simply love to create.

CP: Helping to bring a vision to reality. I love collaborative creativity!

8. Favourite Trend?
MK: At the moment, rose gold. It has always been a favourite of mine so I’m happy it has gained some popularity over the years. 

CP: Tiffany blue! It will always be in style!

9. Trend Brides Should Leave Behind?
MK: Burlap.

CP: Burlap, unless you are having a ranch style wedding!

10. Advice to couples planning?
MK: Remember to laugh! There will be moments of tension and stress, but at the end of the day laugh it off! Be silly together and let loose. Be excited about your marriage; let the planner worry about the wedding day.

CP: A wedding does not have to be stressful! Having a planner to help you through the process is a great way to relieve some of the unnecessary stress that comes with any big event!
