celebrating ten years to the #pfeblog

celebrating 10 year blog anniversary, to us …

Thank you to everyone that has read our blog for the past ten years, it’s our anniversary of my FIRST blog post!

Blogging isn’t like what it used to be. With Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, and more … people are looking for the instant gratification. (You can follow me on all of those social mediums!)

However, the cool thing about blogging is that the info is archival and accessible for years thanks to Google and the Internets. I STILL get random emails from people who will thank me for writing a post a few years ago and my direct, straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to planning events and sharing advice.

So with that, I will raise my cup of coffee (what I’m presently drinking) and cheer all of you for reading! Thank you, and would love for you to leave a comment!

answered viewer’s questions

As the Local 7 Wedding Planner, (every Wednesday morning at 6:55am), I answered viewers questions about wedding planning. There were some really, really, good ones…

  • My groom thinks it would be a good idea to put our wedding registry in our invitations. Is this a good idea?
  • My wedding vendors are not returning my phone calls promptly, what can I do about it?
  • We want to have several hours of downtime between the ceremony and reception? How can we do that to make it easy for our guests?
  • My future father-in-law does not want any alcohol at our wedding. My family are social drinkers. How should we handle this?

To see the answers … see the segment online!

wedding invitation wording: when is it evening?

Reader Question: What is the time that the wording changes from “..in the afternoon” to “…in the evening” on my wedding invitation?

Event Engineer Answer: I won’t lie, this stumps me too. I did a little research just to be clear and continued to be stumped. The most accurate answer to this question would be sundown=evening. But in the real world, we don’t call 7pm in the summer “afternoon” when sundown is around 8:30pm, do we?

So the general consensus is that after 6pm, you may consider that evening. It’s a general rule of thumb. Thanks for the question! If anyone has anything better to add here…we’d love to hear it!

plan on!
