Picking the Right Attire

Not all bodies are created equal. It doesn’t mean they can’t look fabulous on their big day. Make sure you have the right team in place to help you choose the right style of dress for your body.  This is important for Brides, Grooms, Bridal Party and Moms of the Bride and Groom too….

Wedding Website 4-1-1 – How to Create a Wedding Website That’ll Get Your Guests Excited for the Big Day

wedding-website-builders_thumb800

Wedding websites can be a great way for couples to share info with wedding guests — especially in real time and with up-to-date info. Here some of the top resources for building free wedding websites and the information you should share on the site.

What to include – Short answer: Anything that you don’t want to be asked on the day of the wedding

A wedding website is the best way to  let your guests know the important details about your wedding, like where it is, and when, so that they don’t come and bug you for directions to the reception when they lose the invitation (cough, me). But don’t confuse informing with instructing. Informing means giving people all the important details they need to make an informed decision about how to approach your wedding (e.g., the grass is going to be like quicksand, so it might not be friendly for stilettos and other high-heeled shoes). Instructing is telling people how they should approach your wedding (e.g., we’re getting married outdoors, so no fancy shoes allowed). No matter how nicely you phrase it, or how helpful your intentions are, no one likes to be told what to do, especially older guests who have been going to weddings for longer than you’ve been alive. So think of your wedding website as this emoji: 💁. Not this one: 👮.

Here are my two favorites!

Top Ways to Recycle Wedding Items

There are plenty of ways to have an eco-friendly wedding, but what about all of the items that you have when the big day is over?!  For those gently used or leftover (and unused) wedding items, it can be beneficial for you as a new bride/groom and new couples that are following in your path.

Dream Girls Project Reloaded

20120425-233353.jpg

When I was in high school in DC, the one for the Arts in NW, the term “dream girl” was a double edged sword. If you were a coke bottle dream you usually were the subject of dirty fantasies. The play Dream Girls was the epitome of the right girl, wrong time, who becomes the slighted girl ultimately getting the upper hand. Beauty, power and brains: every man’s dream.

SHAOLIN JAZZ – DREAM GIRLS has managed to capture that same raw, gritty power and keep it so sexy and sensual. It is everything that a woman is! Now imagine all of that with a touch of New York, that real soul, HIP HOP. City streets, DJ booths, and records, and I’m talking vinyl, not synths and studio tricks!

SHAOLIN JAZZ-DREAM GIRLS is just that! It’s official, it’s the the stuff dreams are made of…..DREAM GIRLS – SHAOLIN JAZZ-DREAM GIRLS, to be exact!

HELP YOU HELP ME

How do you help a client, who doesn’t know what they need help with? The first thing you do it listen – somewhere in their conversation is a challenge…one that they may not even know is a challenge. It could be something as small as not knowing what style shoes to wear – or which silverware to use with which course…. in the words of Judge Judy, you have to have your on at all times!

MDM is an expert at listening and HEARING the hidden messages in our clients words….we make the connection and put it all together for you…at MDM Associates – The Difference Is In The Details!

Love is in the air….but do you really smell it?

Love is in the air now – everything is all red and white and pink – love
love love….did you know before you can love someone else – you have to
love yourself FIRST? The old adage that “Love don’t cost a thing” is the
falsest statement ever written about love – but it does hold some truth in
it. LOVE itself doesn’t cost – but the EFFORT costs, the TIME costs, the
ENERGY costs and the REWRD is costly – but it really is PRICELESS. Anyone
who knows me knows I am my own number one fan…I think so highly of myself,
that I don’t need a fan club – I am the president, membership and all fans
are welcomed, but I know that I am really the only person who I can truly
depend on. Yes I let myself down from time to time, but I also pick
myself right back up and give myself that nudge in the right direction on
all fronts.

YOU HAVE GOT TO GIVE YOURSELF MORE THAN YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE
ELSE…otherwise, they will have NO idea how much you are worth!
