Beautiful Wedding Cakes

by Danielle Andrews Sunkel

Wedding cakes are steeped in tradition and an important part of every wedding.  Did you know, according to etiquette, the only things a newlywed couple need to provide to their guests is a drink to toast with and a piece of cake?

There are so many talented wedding cake artists, I thought we should shine the spotlight on a few.

The perfect way to top off a naked cake is beautiful florals, just remember, never put flowers in or directly on a cake, use posey picks or another barrier to avoid poisoning guests. ;)

Wedding cakes are like every other element of a wedding, they are personal to the couple. So have fun, just don’t smash it in your partner’s face, feeding each other wedding cake is a sign of mutual respect ;)

From Monica:

I had the pleasure of planning and coordinating Ami & Joel’s wedding at the all-inclusive Grand Sirenis Resort & Spa in sunny Mexico. Together with 50 of their closest family & friends; we jet-setted to the beautiful Mayan Rivera to celebrate a week in Paradise. When I first met Ami & Joel, I could tell right away that they wanted to create a magical wedding day which incorporated personal touches along with some Mexican culture.

On the day of Ami & Joel’s wedding, the sun was shining while the waves offered a cool breeze for the beachside ceremony that took place in a private beach area near the resort. Champagne and delicious appetizers were offered to guests following the ceremony; and while they enjoyed the beautiful views of the ocean; they were serenaded with some live entertainment from a local Mexican trio. The reception took place in a gorgeous Palapa just off the beach. The evening reception included a plated dinner, followed by heartfelt speeches and even a special performance from a dear friend who had written and performed a song for the Bride & Groom. The guests danced the night away under the decorated palapa, while enjoying the cool breeze coming from the ocean.

How to #Hashtag for Your Wedding and Event Business

hashtag

by Danielle Andrews Sunkel

What is a Hashtag?

“(on social-networking websites) A word or phrase preceded by a hash mark (#), used within a message to identify a keyword or topic of interest and facilitate a search for it.” Source: Dictionary.com

When used well, Hashtags can elevate your Social Media posts from average to great and can even cause your post to go Viral!

Hashtags are used as a way to sort your photos on Instagram or posts on Twitter so that people can enter a Hashtag and find like posts.

Hashtags are a  great tool when attending an event, so that others at the event can engage with eachother, or those who are not able to attend the event can still see photos and hear quotes from the event.

If you are sharing photos from an event you planned or attended, it is a great way to steer potential followers toward your posts (example: #wedding #WPICtrends).

Here are some tips when using hashtags:

  • DO give props- If you are talking about a vendor, hashtag their company. #WPIC #awesomesauce
  • DON’T make your hashtag too long- People will ignore your hashtag if they can’t quickly decipher it.#areallylonghastagconfuses
  • DO use capitalization- Using captials for each new word can help the reader distinguish your point. #WhatsYourPoint
  • DO keep it related- Make sure your hashtag relates to what you are talking about or showing. #frankenstein
  • DO be clever-A clever hashtag that entertains the reader is more likely to cause them to retweet it or become a follower. #IveGotNothing
  • DON’T overuse hashtags- Nothing drives me more crazy than having to scroll past 50 hashtags after a photo on Instagram.  It will turn off any potential followers too. 3-5 hashtags should be your maximum. #Too #many#Hashtags #drives #me #nuts #Follow #WPIC #we #will #not #do #this #Really #we #will #not #This #is #just #an #example #See #how #it #detracts #from #my #message #and #gets #really #annoying
