Female: Meet our bride Wendy.
Wendy Corenblum: Hi.
Ashley Baber: Hi! Such a pleasure to meet you.
Wendy Corenblum: Nice to meet you.
Ashley Baber: Congratulations!
Wendy Corenblum: Thank you.
Female: This is Ashley Baber, she is a fantastic wedding planner. And what do you have here today for us? Let’s start over here with the wishing tree.
Ashley Baber: Absolutely, we have some romantic ideas for upcoming wedding Wendy. This is a wishing tree which is a fun alternative to a guest book. What guest will do is sign in just little sweet notes and wishes for you then later you can take this off of the wishing tree and mount them in a book, so it’s a fun way for guest to get involved and do something kind of sweet and different.
Wendy Corenblum: I love that idea.
Ashley Baber: It’s so fun to meet Wendy today. She is such a sweet girl and I love that she chose a romantic theme, which is always a great way to go for a wedding.
Well unity candle is a prominent part of most of the wedding ceremonies, just signify your union. The two of you will each take a taper and then light the center candle here and that signifies you joining together in marriage. We could definitely do a sand ceremony instead in which the two of you will have sand in individual containers that represent the two of you, and then during the ceremony you’ll pour them in and will fill this container here.
Wendy Corenblum: I think the sand ceremony is really cool. It’s definitely very different and unique.
Female: Now you and your fiancé love music right?
Wendy Corenblum: We do, we love music.
Female: Great! So Ashley, tell us little bit about what we have here from “It’s more than a Song”.
Ashley Baber: “It’s more than a Song” creates this great CD’s. It’s actual songs are customized for the bride and groom. So if you love to talk about how the two of you met or the proposal, something romantic about your relationship, they’ll actually put this into a song for you see have a unique first dance option.
Wendy Corenblum: Love it, great idea.
Female: What do you think, right? We got for the girl and for the boy. Ashley what’s the idea here for Wendy?
Ashley Baber: Bride and groom matching underwear, really fun, kind of secret just between the bride and groom to have on their wedding day, something that nobody else knows about.
Wendy Corenblum: The hot and sexy lingerie is definitely such a kept secret. None of your guest knew about it, but it’s something that you and your groom can share throughout the night and have like as your own little secret. I think we can maybe use that.
Female: We have a variety of different favors here.
Ashley Baber: Yes these are actually cherry blossom candles, if you are having a wedding that might be themed—pink some brown is such a great option. These are wild flower seeds. They can plant the bag as biodegradable. You should really feels good about a favor.
Wendy Corenblum: I think it’s so important for everyone to be eco-friendly and conscious to the environment, the carbon footprint that you are leaving. I love that the bags are personalized with your name and your wedding date.
Ashley Baber: Another favor we have are this little add on dock chairs. There’s a multitude of uses for this actually can use them as a place card, holders for your guest so they know where to be seated when they are given a table.
We have two send off options here, we’ve got bubbles and sparklers very romantic to end the night. The bubbles are beautiful option for backlit photo, where it really catches the light of all the bubbles.
Sparklers are such a fun option as well. If your venue allows sparklers, a few things to keep in mind you want to get the larger sparklers. You get 20 inches or larger. We got this on sparklersonline.com. Sparklers are an awesome send off, guests really love it. It really get some charge at the end of the night when they get to play with fireworks, it makes gorgeous evening pictures too.
Wendy Corenblum: Very fresh and different and most importantly romantic.
Ashley Baber: I hope that these items help Wendy take her wedding to the next level of personalization. Everything will be so gorgeous.
Wendy Corenblum: It’s a very important to Jeremy and I have a romantic feel to our wedding and I think choosing any of the option she gave us, the romance will really show throughout the night.
