Fall/Winter 2009: The Experts

THE TASTEMAKERS

Years later, your guests will remember the toasts, the dancing, the late-night
karaoke…but the food? Not so much. Unless, that is, you hire a caterer who knows wedding meals don’t need to be expensive afterthoughts.

THE LENS CRAFTER

Everyone else has a reality show—why not you? Filming your wedding’s laughter, tears, and hilarious unscripted moments promises viewing pleasure. 

THE CRISIS MANAGER

It’s inevitable: Your wedding won’t go entirely as imagined. Having a veteran planner at the helm can get your celebration back on course.

THE TRIP ADVISER

There’s something refreshingly retro about honeymoon planning sans Internet. Adding to the appeal: saving lots of money, and having someone else handle your travel hiccups.

THE FINANCIER

Don’t rely on borrowed funds to pay for your nuptials—or your ever after. Being smart with your green will help you stay in the black for life…or at least for the honeymoon. 

THE MOTHERS OF THE BRIDE

Bride Wars aside, it isn’t only the affianced who struggle with wedding planning. Sometimes, their moms have it just as rough—especially in trying to find the fine line between helpful and overbearing.
