IS IT OK TO PROPOSE AT SOMEONE ELSE'S WEDDING?

The last couple of months, we have seen a couple of proposals in the media that sparked a lot of discussion. Some people thought it is so sweet they chose that moment to propose, while others feel like the proposal actually stole the spotlight off some one else. Two recent examples are:

1ce7b-1e00f1_00859fe399df4de48e4657ba2c7b708dmv2_d_1500_1500_s_2.jpg

Hello! I’m Kelly and I’m the founder and creative director of Lovesky Design. We specialize in custom handcrafted luxury wedding invitations.

1. When did you start your business and what was your inspiration?

I started in 2013 not too long after I graduated from SAIT majoring in graphic design. I was motivated by the fact that life is short and if there’s one thing we shouldn’t be afraid of is following our dreams. It was my dream to design, to challenge myself and create beautiful things. I’ve always loved weddings so I put the two together and made that my focus for my business.

2. What makes your business different from others?

A personalized, design experience is what sets us apart. It's important to me that the process is easy, stress-free, and enjoyable. I work hard to keep my clients happy, on track and excited. I have a desire to create something special for people.

3. What is the best part of your job?

When clients tell me how happy they were with the finished product. It’s very rewarding to know they value and love your work.

4. What do you hope to achieve with each wedding?

I always strive to do my very best. My clients deserve nothing but the best from me. I’m not a perfectionist in life but when it comes to work, from design to production, everything needs to be perfect.

5. What was your most memorable wedding?

I designed a custom invitation for a couple from the States. What made the experience memorable was the bride who sent me the sweetest thank you gift. It was a recipe booklet she compiled of her favourite family recipes. She gave it as a wedding favour for her guests and I designed the front cover that was cohesive to her wedding invites. I wasn’t expecting her to send me one too. It was such a sweet and personal gift. Not only was I a part of her wedding team as a vendor but receiving that made me feel like a part of her family.

6. Words that you live by?

Be fearless. Do what you love and never stop learning.

IS IT OK TO HAVE AN ALCOHOL-FREE WEDDING?

IS IT OK TO HAVE AN ALCOHOL-FREE WEDDING?

The thought of attending a wedding without alcohol might make some people cringe but for me, I don't really care. I've been to enough weddings and have seen it all. I've seen invoices where the drink tab is higher than the meals at the wedding. I've also seen seven alcoholic drinks on the entire wedding reception drink tab. When asked if it is ok to have an alcohol-free wedding, I find it tricky to answer. As it depends on who is asking the question. Here any my answers to these specific people.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU BROKE SOMETHING YOU BORROWED

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU BROKE SOMETHING YOU BORROWED

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

And while you did your very best to take care of it, sometimes things just happen. What can you do if the item you've borrowed for your wedding day gets damaged?

ALL ABOUT WINE AT YOUR WEDDING (WINE 101)

ALL ABOUT WINE AT YOUR WEDDING (WINE 101)

I have had clients where the wine they serve is more important to them than the reception dinner itself. Because I am a cheap drunk (like tipsy from one wine tasting,) I found myself at a lost when providing them advice on the amount of wine that should be served at their wedding. Sure they knew what wines they wanted but they didn't know how much wine to buy or budget for. As their wedding planner, of course, I had to do my best to estimate and help them stay within budget.

WHEN DOES YOUR WEDDING NIGHT END?

WHEN DOES YOUR WEDDING NIGHT END?

Recently, I had some clients ask me when their wedding day should end. I looked at them blankly because I thought the answer was obvious. They filled in the silence and explained they didn't want their guests to feel like they didn't get enough time with them at their wedding, didn't want to end the night too soon and look like old people, and didn't want people to leave wanting more.
