A couple of months ago, my friend Dusty Brown told me WGVU was looking for a local wedding planner to join Shelley Irwin on local PBS show, Ask the..., and he gave them MY name. Me? Seriously?
I talked to producer James Holland, and within the day, I had Barb of Sweet Cakes Design and Ann of Forrester Farm joining me for the June 24th program on WGVU. It will be live(!) and viewers will be encouraged to call in and ask the three of us wedding planning & design questions. I'm already nervous with anticipation of NOT knowing an answer off the top of my head.
Nightmares go something like this...
Caller: Traditionally, what is the order of the receiving line at the church?
Aletha : I actually have no idea, however, I have a fabulous book at home that I can look it up in. Or try Googleing it. May I get your email address and follow up with you?
And because this WAS a real question from last Saturday's wedding, and I did NOT know the answer, you better believe I looked it up ASAP. And just in case you are wondering, a traditional receiving line is as follows...
- Mother of the Bride
- Mother of the Groom
- Maid of Honor
- All of the Bridesmaids
See? I'm nervous!
Barb, Ann and I got together a month ago to put together our design concepts to share with viewers, because we all know gorgeous linens, flowers, paper products and cake make my job much more fun from the outside looking in. The bold color palette - mango, magenta & avocado - will be making their appearance THIS THURSDAY at 6pm, EST. Stay tuned to see what both Ann & Barb create, as well as Abbey from Syd Design comes up with for all the little details for the show. I plan on blogging about it, especially if I get some good photos.
If you are a local reader, please tune in to WGVU from 6:00pm - 6:30pm EST on Thursday June 24th, 2010 to see me in action!
