~Dear Rick, Bravo on a job well done! From the sweetly modern ceremony music to the jamming reception tunes, every part of the music was enjoyable.Thank you for taking good care of my clients.- Sally Raderer at Something Blue 5/30/2010~
The Knot- Still the number one site on the web for brides. Free wedding sites. Information Central!
Wedding Wire- Currently #2 but gaining rapidly. Free wedding sites.
The Bridal Association Of America- Look for planning timelines and, like the first 2 sites, a free wedding web site. Despite the old school look, lots of helpful stuff here.
Perfect Wedding Guide- Lots of planning help with all sorts of guidelines. Featuring seating chart guides, a great thing to have. Free wedding sites.
Wedding Music Central- Skip all the music they're trying to sell you and focus on some excellent music lists featuring links to Amazon and Itunes to give a listen
Cost of A Wedding- This is a really useful site that will save you tons of time. Simply enter the zip code of your wedding location. It is as easy as it sounds!
Wedding Toasts Made Easy- This little book written by my friend Tom Haibeck is fun, entertaining and an easy read. Tom explains how to amaze and entertain all of your guests in 3 to 5 minutes or less.
The Wedding MC- In many countries, including Tom's home country of Canada, the best man or a close friend is chosen to fill the role of Wedding MC. While similar to the other book, this adds info on planning time lines and other MC related duties, all the while emphasizing the need to remain entertaining.
The Best Wedding Reception...Ever!- If you are looking to have a creatively entertaining reception, look no further for ideas than this excellent volume by my friend Peter Merry. If I had my way, every bride would read this one! The only volume available that focuses on the entertainment.
I was very blessed to attend Peter's 2 day workshop for wedding entertainers, "The Professional Process", last November. His creativity and attention to detail was truly amazing!
