Ready, Set Plan!

There is a certain process or time line when it comes to planning a wedding or event. We've all seen the 9mo, 6mo, 3mo etc. check lists.

Flowers seem to be near the end of that check list. By the time I sit down face to face with you, chances are you have your venue/caterer, photographer, linens and attire already confirmed.

This leaves me little opportunity to tell you about all of the amazing people I've worked with and who are some of the best of the best in the industry. It occurred to me today that you may be reading this at the beginning of the time line, in the research phase (hopefully not at work ;) ).

Research on your vendors is vital but can also be overwhelming. I highly suggest you check out The Style Laboratory for some assistance.

The Style Laboratory is a design and planning studio. They also offer a cutting edge interactive technology called Style Stations, which allow you to access a database of tens of thousands of images of events designed and executed by the best vendors in the Twin Cities.

This service is complimentary and includes images and information on such fabulous vendors as
The Depot, W Minneapolis, D'Amico Catering, Wolfgang Puck Catering, Linen Effects, Liz Banfield Photography, Studio Laguna and many many more.

Please check it out online and better yet, in person! It may be the best thing you could do to ensure the enjoyment of the planning process!
