Newlywedcast with Carly Morgan... A Disney Wedding

Carly, Editor & Founder of The Disney Wedding Blog, found her Prince Charming while working at Walt Disney World on the College Program.  Both lifelong Disney fans, Carly & Kyle, got married at Walt Disney World on a $20,000 budget.  Carly discusses their destination wedding planning experience and highlights her best tips and advice when planning an amazing yet affordable Disney wedding. 

Carly tells us there is a perception that Disney weddings are plastic and cookie-cutter, Mickey Mouse events, but that couldn't be farther from the truth.  The Disney Wedding Blog is the unofficial center for all things Disney weddings. The site is an inspiration and information resource for couples planning a wedding, proposal, honeymoon, or vow renewal at any of the Disney theme parks or resort areas.  It is a fan blog for all types of Disney Weddings and is not affiliated with Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons or The Walt Disney Company in any way.  Carly is dedicated to making the journey to a Disney wedding a lot easier.

Carly shares her resources including online Disney forums, her photographers and Disney-area vendors, and where she found her beautiful $250 wedding dress.  She talks about her extraordinary honeymoon five months before her wedding as a planning and celebration trip and what her guests will remember the most. We will hear about the most unexpected part of their celebration and what she would have done differently.  Carly had high expectations and Disney delivered the fairy tale wedding she always dreamed about.

Newlywedcast with Nicole and Damien, Brooklyns Biggest Loser Lovebirds

You may recognize our featured newlyweds as the red team from reality television.  Nicole Brewer and Damien Gurganious, contestants on season 7 “The Biggest Loser: Couples”,  enthusiastically share how they met at a water aerobics class at the Y, the two day proposal story, and their wedding planning and weight loss experience. Together they lost more than 250 pounds combined and could not be happier inside and out. 

Nicole, a wardrobe stylist and group fitness instructor and Damien, an industrial designer, are creative, ambitious professionals devoted to each other and focused on an active and exciting life.  They talk about what they learned from being on “The Biggest Loser” ranch and how thrilling it is to finally fit into clothes they always wanted to wear, especially walking down the aisle in a figure-flattering strapless Amsale Christos “Eva” gown and Calvin Klein tuxedo.  Red is Nicole’s favorite color so it was only fitting to dress her bridesmaids in a fashionable apple red gown from David’s Bridal.  They may be watching calories but they splurged on a delicious wedding cake called "Biggest Loser's Praline Bliss".

You will find out what Nicole and Damien would have done differently, what was most memorable, and their best advice for couples getting married.  This New York summer wedding was a collaborative effort that had everything a couple would want for a celebration...especially love.

Newlywedcast with Kaylynn and Bill - A Las Vegas Destination Wedding

How did our featured newlyweds Kaylynn & Bill meet and fall in love? Want to hear a really fantastic surprise birthday trip proposal? Why get married in Las Vegas? How did they start the wedding planning process from Seattle and discover that they needed help? Kaylynn had a specific vision for her wedding and toured many hotels and locations they considered for their wedding. She knew she wanted a coordinator in charge of the many details of the day and she lucked out finding and hiring Tracey Kumer-Moore of Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge. Connecting with your wedding planner is important and priceless. The groom totally agrees that a planner is an advocate for your interests with your vendors and they take care of things you probably have not thought about. They worked with wonderful wedding professionals selected from many of Traceyâs references. Kaylynn and Bill realized throughout their 10 month engagement that Tracey helped lessen the overwhelming stress and we all know how much that matters!

Their September wedding took place at the Wynn Las Vegas. They wanted an intimate evening with friends and family to celebrate their union. Were things planned for their guests for the weekend? Kaylynn talks about finding her dream Lazaro wedding gown at a beautiful boutique in Seattle that coincidentally all of the women in her family had gotten their gowns. Kaylynn knew her look was perfect. She describes it as Timeless + Glitzy = Las Vegas Romantic. Hear how they made their twilight ceremony meaningful. Are you thinking of having a half-time wardrobe change? Kaylynn changes into an Alice + Olivia cocktail dress â what fun!

Their vision was achieved via the dÃcor. They wanted an elegant setting so they set up a few lounge spaces, used the outdoor patio, and was surrounded by lots of candles and flowers. Uplights and white chiffon fabric and votives were utilized in the LaTache ballroom. They had a band and DJ with a really cool black dance floor. Learn about their photographer and the shots Kaylynn & Bill really wanted to capture the energy & life of the party. Bill was in charge of food and booze. No traditional sit down dinner for them. No seating charts. Helen from the Wynn helped design creative menu elements for their cocktail party even though they didnât eat much of the food. Sound familiar?

Kaylynn suggests all couples should do something magical right after the ceremony. Can you guess what she is referring to? Listen and find out. What were their most memorable & favorite moments about the wedding? What was the best money ever spent? Their motto was to have fun and enjoy themselves. Their guests are still raving about their fabulous Vegas wedding at the Wynn. This Newlywedcast is inspiring and full of love.

Newlywedcast with Hyela and Jack who had a romantic wedding at the Essex House in New York City

Are you a little older?  Do you both work?  Would you want to plan your second wedding different than your first?  Hyela does and embraces her second walk down the aisle with much happiness.  Jack, never married before, has two proposals to make.  Hear how Jack includes Sabrina, Hyela's 8 year old daughter.  Later in the show you find out that Jack selected the simple, yet sexy Elizabeth Fillmore wedding dress at Saks Fifth Avenue.  It's a red carpet winner for Hyela's big day. 

Hyela and Jack have a year to plan their New York City wedding.  They know they want an intimate and elegant location.  Having no time to really work on a wedding, they hired an event coordinator, Kristin Manolis of Manolis & Company Productions.  We asked this busy, engaged couple how they found Kristin and how they worked together.

Date: Thanksgiving weekend.  Place: The Essex House.  What next?  This special couple wanted a party -not a traditional "first" wedding.    Music and entertainment was such important components that they had a separate coordinator.  Ever think of including your guests into the lyrics of a song?

Would you want someone famous to officiate?  At first Jack was not enthusiastic, but was ultimately touched by former Mayor David Dinkins' heartfelt words.  The ceremony was touching & meaningful for Hyela, Jack and their guests.

Hyela worked very closely with Kristin when designing floral centerpieces and the creative stationery system.  Individual menus had beautiful calligraphy and were presented in the round. Some really unique and innovative designs were incorporated to reflect this couple's taste and personality.

Best advice: definitely hire an event coordinator.  After interviewing three or four possible candidates Hyela and Jack were very pleased with Kristin's ability to orchestrate and produce a fabulous wedding.  They said, "Kristin does all the work.  We expressed our desires and chose exactly what we wanted .  Guaranteed you'll have less mistakes, headaches and hassles."

Do you want to leave an amazing impression on your guests?  Listen and get some terrific ideas for your wedding from Hyela and Jack.

Lisa and Matt tell us how they met and share their proposal story.  We asked them what the first thing they did to start planning their wedding.  When?  Where?  Warm climate please!  If it couldn't be barefoot on the beach then a Sunday afternoon in New York City would be perfect.

Location:  Tavern on the Green - a New York institution overlooking Central Park.  Built to house sheep in 1870, the restaurant became known as Tavern on the Green in 1934.  The setting is perfect for photos.  Lisa and Matt knew that this beautiful venue would be a place they would be able to celebrate anniversaries and special occasions for many years to come.

Four months until the wedding and Lisa needs a dress.  The third dress at the first store?  Did we hear right?  This happy bride-to-be shares her best advice on where to look for your wedding gown.

The ceremony took place in an outdoor garden at Tavern on the Green where 100 guests attended.  Their dog Maggie was the ring bearer.  Lisa and Matt discuss the flowers, the music and the great personalized wedding favors created by their company The Hampton Popcorn Company.   It's a keepsake to remember the day long after the delicious popcorn is eaten. 

Rave reviews from their family and friends.  Guests cited that this wedding day was "theme"  Lisa and Matt tell couples in the midst of planning their wedding to be realistic and not worry about every miniscule detail.  They constantly reminded themselves not to get carried away and did their very best to stay true to their relationship.

Newlywedcast with Karen aka Mrs. Grasshopper a September Bride

WPN found our featured bride via her blog entries posted on weddingbee.com, one of our favorite places to read about weddings.  We enjoyed Mrs. Grasshopper's story and had the privilege to hear all about her 11 month plans from engagement to honeymoon in Kauai

Karen tells us how she met her husband Alex and how he proposed in Paris - ooh la la!  What did they plan first?  What was their top priority?  Was the groom involved?  Bring Sasha beloved dog to the wedding?  What color for your bridal party?  Write your own vows?  Flowers?  Music?  Cupcakes?  Answers to these questions and lots more. 

What would you do if no one showed up at your last fitting appointment AND you learned the gown store was closing?  Karen remains unruffled and shares the drama of the dress.  This is one story you don't want to miss. 

Karen used the Internet for many of the resources cited in the podcast.  She found the web invaluable.  The Knot message boards proved to be an unbelievable community. Check out the links below.   

We asked Karen if she would've done anything differently.  Everything was better than expected.  Her Wedding Day Quarterback was a tremendous facilitator bringing all the elements together.  We can all learn a lot from this cool, calm and collected New York bride.

Newlywedcast with Heather and Vee who planned a July wedding

This Newlywedcast is with Heather and Vee who were married in July.  They talk about how they met on the internet dating site eHarmony.com.  We discuss what that experience was like for them.  Both Heather and Vee are school teachers.  Planning a wedding around school vacation was challenging so they did some pre-planning.  Hear about how Vee proposed to Heather and how they involved their families.

Some interesting planning strategies are revealed as we talk about searching for a location for the wedding reception.  Is it a good thing to have your groom very involved in the planning process?  Heather talks about how she felt about Vee's contribution to the wedding planning. 

Personalizing the wedding ceremony was very important to both the bride and groom.  We learn how they went about making the ceremony meaningful for themselves, their family and friends.  A family member even performed the ceremony.  They also share how they accommodated their students that were invited to witness their teachers getting married.

We explore the process that they went through in choosing their wedding vendors.  From the brass quintet and hand bell choir for the ceremony to the big band that they chose for their reception.  Vee even sat in with the band to play sax on a few songs. 

We discuss menu selections and special dietary requirements for the wedding reception.  Finally Heather and Vee talk about their fabulous three week honeymoon in Austria.

Join us for this wonderful Newlywedcast.
