Watch, set your TIVO, or watch online….

Elise Enloe, Master Bridal Consultant appearances on Get Married airing on Lifetime TV at 7:30 am on February 2nd and again on February 9th.

While I’ll probably critique the heck out of it, and I’ll share more with you after it airs….maybe I should wait until it airs the first time before I tell you to watch. Now hosted by Colin Cowie, who I met in November at ABC’s Annual Conference, we’re proud to be a part of  “the cast.”


You’re Engaged-Now What? There WERE more than a few brides (and a few grooms) up early Sunday for the WPCF Bridal Show at Hotel Royal Plaza where I had the pleasure to present a 30-minute segment “You’re Engaged – Now What?”  You’re Engaged-Now What?    wpcfweddingplanning1
While this wasn’t the biggest show in town, the combination of educational segments with a more intimate trade show and great vendors and fashions still made this a great show for brides and grooms.

We had a wonderful opportunity last week to visit Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau.  ABC Wedding consultants are not travel agents working for commission, but we are Certified Sandals Specialists, requiring annual training updates. We learn about these resorts so that we can help recommend the right honeymoon or weddingmoon for our clients.  Having experienced most of the Sandals and Beaches properties in Jamaica, I was curious to compare the Bahamas.  I was not disappointed.  While I didn’t get to the private island, I chose to spend my free time in the RedLane Spa – AHHH – I had to check it out – right?  My only free time was aabcsandalst 8:00 am.  An additional “treat” was running into Dave Collins and Leslye Gayle of Magic 107.7 who were broadcasting liveand put me on the air.  WHen you see those pictures of the clear blue water and beautiful beaches, you think they’re not real.  So here’s some pictures I took to share with you.   More to come.

Wedding Gazebo

The wedding veil has evolved over the centuries, and has signified youth, virginity, and modesty. Roman brides were married in swathes of brilliant yellow, while Viking queens wore metal skullcaps. Many Japanese brides still wear the traditional tsuno-kakushi — a white hood that supposedly hides the horns of jealousy. In the United States, George Washington’s daughter Nellie was one of the very first brides to don a veil. Legend has it that Nellie was sitting by a lace-curtained window when one of her father’s aides walked by and fell head over heels in love with her lace-framed face. When the two married, Nellie recreated the effect by donning a lacy veil, and inadvertently set a trend that is still prevalent among Western brides today.

Attention to Details gets several requests a year from brides looking to have their wedding at a mansion.  Many larger homes might fit the bill, but generally someone lives there and concern over the safety of their furnishings and belongings is quite a risk to have a houseful of strangers.  But we have one such “secret” mansion, available for your wedding or event in the Orlando area and can help you book this unique venue.
