McEmsara and I are really excited to be featured in a magazine for the 2nd time this month (check out our other feature in Good Housekeeping magazine)! (201) Bride reached out to us to chat about wedding websites and how brides and grooms are using them to update family and friends on the details of their day.
Pick up your copy of (201) Bride’s Winter 2013 issue and turn to page 40 to see our take on it. You’ll also get recommendations on free wedding websites, customizing your website and spreading the news to your guests.
Our Luxe brides and grooms are always looking do things differently and put a spin on the traditional. Sumena and James were no different. While they wanted to capture the memories of those who attended their big day, they didn’t want to use the typical and outdated sign-in guestbook. So what did they use instead? A rocking chair, which guests signed during their reception and which they’ll place in their new home together. Now that’s a keepsake that’s personal and one they’ll treasure for years to come!

So go ahead and get creative! These are the unexpected details that your guests will remember!
You just got engaged and it’s all so exciting! Sharing the news with family and friends…and of course, showing off your new rock. All of a sudden, you find yourself flipping through wedding magazines, pinning away on Pinterest and planning your dream wedding.
Bet you haven’t given much thought to insuring your ring, but it needs to make it to the top of your to-do list sooner rather than later! It’s most likely the most valuable piece of jewelry you own, so why not? First, you’ll need find a certified gemologist at www.americangemsociety.org to get your ring appraised. Then, you can contact your renter’s or home owner’s insurance company and add it to your policy. If you ever lost your ring, the insurance company would cut you a check for the appraised amount or replace it with one of comparable amount.
As with all insurance we purchase in our lifetime, the peace of mind of being protected is worth it!
Valentine’s Day is just one week away and the post office has issued their “Sealed with Love” Forever Stamp. Pick up a pack today! These are perfect for your Save the Dates or your wedding invitation response cards.
FYI – Postage rates increased last month. However, Forever Stamps are always equal in value to the current First Class Mail 1oz rate (now 46 cents). Just keep in mind that most wedding invitations weigh over 1oz and will require additional postage.
Preston Bailey is tying the knot in just two weeks and here’s a peek at his Save the Date! What do you think? McEmsara and I just love how they put their own spin on this iconic image.
What we love even more is that their wedding will be on a Wednesday evening…and only 1 hour away from Valentine’s Day! Weekday weddings are definitely becoming way more “acceptable” than they were in the past. Did I mention I got hitched on a Thursday?! Would you ever consider it?
Good Housekeeping magazine was looking to feature Female Entrepreneurs and their beauty routines…and we’re thrilled to announce that McEmsara of Luxe Events was chosen for their February 2013 issue! Here’s their “Beauty How To” Video (and a peek at the behind-the-scenes photo shoot), along with some beauty tips from make up artist Andrew Sotomayor for radiant, glowing skin. Pick up your copy today and turn to page 44 to see the article.
And here’s the magazine feature! What do you think?
