Special touch: Wedding cake topper was a 70-year-old family heirloom from the bride’s grandparent’s Italian wedding in 1942.
When all is said and done…
Something Blue Weddings was a perfect match for my wedding! LaToya was asked to help on the day of the event, but went the extra mile to make sure everything was ready for the day. She called every vendor to confirm every detail, including the hotel to make sure everything was ready with the block of rooms, and guest accommodations.
On the day of the event, LaToya had a sense of everything going on and was able to stay one step ahead of me the entire time. She made sure if something wasn’t going according to plan that she fixed it without my needing to know (the cake was late and I never knew!).
She designed menu cards for all my guests that matched my invitations and programs that I had already made. She also had a fabulous idea to make business card-sized “taxi” cards with information on a local taxi service, also in my colors!!! I don’t know how many were used because I was busy having fun, but I thought it was a great little detail that she thought of, and designed herself.
LaToya was also highly detail oriented, with multiple checklists and timelines. She helped me remember what needed to be brought from my parents house (where I got dressed) to the reception venue and to the hotel (my dress hanger, the box for my headpiece). I would have forgotten all of that without her!
