Pantone’s Color of the Year

Each year Pantone selects a “color of the year” and in truth, I don’t find that it often has much of an impact on the floral choices I see in Vermont weddings, however, Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is “Ultra Violet”, which I must say does not come as a surprise to me!

An expert’s guide to your Vermont wedding

I specialize in Vermont weddings. I planned a Vermont wedding in 2003…before Google, Pinterest and Instagram. (It wasn’t exactly the “dark ages”, but we did have to cut pictures out of magazines to put together an inspiration board in those days!) Nowadays (ya know, with Google and electricity!), there’s no shortage of wedding inspiration and

Wedding Planners vs. Coordinators vs. Designers: Defining the Difference

One thing that always strikes me as funny (or adorable or sadly realistic) is when a bride or groom inquire with me and say, “this is my first time planning a wedding,” or “I’ve never done this before”.  My response is always the same, “that’s a good thing”. Since planning a wedding is intended for

Sarah and John were married at The Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT on Saturday afternoon.  It was a truly lovely day for an early spring wedding in Vermont with a super moon to finish out the evening.  The style for this wedding was vintage-inspired with a “beginning of spring” feeling.  There were so many great DIY details

When should you book your wedding florist?

I love a good wedding magazine and they always come with a wedding check-list.  The thing I always check out is at what point they recommend a couple should contract their florist.  Most planning calendars suggest you book your florist 6-7 months before your wedding and I’ve seen sources that suggest 4 months is ample time to contract a designer–I’m going to have

Alison’s favorite things (vol. 22)

OK, so I haven’t done any official research on this, but I’m pretty sure it’s a scientific fact that 100% of wedding bloggers love Paloma’s Nest.  I have to put their adorable ring bearer bowls on my list of favorite things.  I love the look, the size and shape, and the fact that you can use it to

Vermont Wedding Affair at Shelburne Farms

On Saturday afternoon Vermont Vows Magazine presented the state’s most gorgeous wedding show at Shelburne Farms.  The carnival theme at the Vermont Wedding Affair was both fun and charming.  I presented the first seminar of the day on Budget Savvy and DIY Planning Tips along with Nancy of NJoy Events.  I think every good wedding has at least one DIY project, but I always caution brides against
