I’m Getting Hitched Event Details

I had so much fun at the I’m Getting Hitched event in DC last week at the Hitched Salon that I wish we could put another one on the calendar! The vendors at the event were amazing and I had the honor of giving brides some wedding planning tips as well as moderating a panel discussion with some of DC’s best, including: Kate Headley Photography, Design Cuisine, Holly Chapple Flowers, Ritzy Bee Events, K. Rose Cakes, Humanstory Films.

There was a lot of great advice that the local vendors shared with the audience of over 100 brides and here are some of my favorite bits of wedding wisdom:

  • Pick up a pair of SoleMates to protect your heels from sinking into the ground at an outdoor wedding

  • Hire a wedding planner or designate someone on the day-of your wedding to handle everything from real emergencies to logistical issues that may arise so you can enjoy your day

  • Hire a photographer whose work you love and then worry about their packages and prices. Don’t hire someone because of their sales packages

  • Once you’ve established your wedding budget add 10% to it so that when you go over, which you probably will, you won’t freak out about it
