Summer

How is it already August? I am in pure denial of how quickly this season is flying by. Summer is always my busy time - between my "real job" being in the hospitality industry and continuing to coordinate weddings, it just always happens that June - September go so quickly that I'm left wondering HOW that happened!

I had decided that for 2011 I was not going to take on any weddings for May. Our calendars were already pretty full with other commitments so I took the plunge and regretfully turned away numerous brides for that month. But I think I managed to make up for it in June, July and August. Busy, busy, busy! So many neat weddings this summer too. I really do have a bunch of creative gals on my client list this year. In fact, one bride is such a creative and amazingly talented graphic designer, that I can't wait to connect with her and use her as a vendor. It's true - you just never know who you are going to meet doing this job. I love that part!

The summer has been full of a lot of variety. Outdoor weddings, cocktail hour cruises, backyard ceremonies, traditional and non-traditional elements, black and white classic elegance and over the top color! I really do like when it gets mixed up like this - it's so much more fun to see new things every weekend. I remember a few years ago when brown and pink were THE color scheme for weddings and I literally had SIX brown and pink weddings in a row. I never wanted to see another brown dress or pink sash for as long as I lived. :) However, now that I've had a break from it, I'd love to see it come back. Just once.

Three more weddings this month and then a slight break in September with only two. I took another break from weddings in October because I have so much going on. That will be a tough one, because October is one of my favorite wedding months. But I will be busy watching one of my best friends get married along with a whole slew of other fun things.

I will also be busy with planning two weddings for 2012 and I can't wait! Although I tell myself I never want to do full planning full time, I often times get so wrapped up into it that I think "well, maybe..." So, we'll see what the next year brings for these weddings. Both brides (and their moms!) are just such great people and very eager for someone else to take over the planning process.

I guess this has turned into the one post of the Summer. I'll see if I can get another one up before August is over. :) For now though, I am off to the races to button up details for an August 27 wedding. I see an afternoon and evening full of timeline creating, vendor confirming, and too many emails to count.
