Wedding Planning Questionnaires: What they are, Why we send them, and What do to with them

By |July 1st, 2015|

A few weekends ago, as we were getting ready to start a wedding rehearsal at one of our couple’s venues, the on-site coordinator walked up to our client with a clipboard and piece of paper. We knew in a heartbeat that it was a “dreaded” questionnaire. Now, we’re really not fans when venues and vendors wait until the DAY OF or day before a wedding to collect this info, but sometimes they don’t […]

Between forums, message boards, Facebook, Twitter, and so-on there are SO many wedding planning myths floating around out there on the interwebs and while we’d love to sit and argue with folks on these pl […]

Creative Spotlight: Omnivent | Part II

By |June 10th, 2015|

Way, way back in 2011 we interviewed Doug Mackie of Omnivent Event Services. Through the past four years, we’ve learned more about Doug and his insane talent for completely transforming spaces in the most stellar and professional of ways. He’s expanded, grown and become even more of a cool guy that he already was.

Hello again, Doug. How are you?

Doug: Hello Danielle, I am well and excited […]

Ask a Wedding Planner: Send your questions to DPNAK

By |May 27th, 2015|

 

Did you ever want to just ask a wedding planner anything?

Well, we love giving out as much advice, tips and wedding goodness as we can. But this week, we’ve got some writer’s block and need your help on what we should talk about.

We figured, what better way to give you the information that you’re needing than to just ASK. So, we want you to send us your questions and ask DPNAK […]

Well ladies and gents… We’ve moved!

The time has come that DPNAK Weddings is now very happily back in the Lehigh Valley area (technically Upper Bucks, but a whole lot closer to Lehigh Valley than we were before in Scranton).

We are completely honored to have been voted as

We are eager and excited to work in the Scranton and Poconos areas for weddings, but will now be more central to the […]

Creative Spotlight: Tree of Life Films and Photography

By |May 13th, 2015|

It’s safe to say that there are very few things left once your wedding day is all over. While the food eventually gets eaten and the flowers start to wilt, photography and videography are two of biggest keepsakes you have once it’s all said and done.

For this reason, I can’t recommend hiring the best your budget will allow. This is never an area to “cut corners” if it means something specia […]

The Sweetheart Cake Trend of 2015

By |April 29th, 2015|

With the start of each new wedding season, it’s easy to see what trends will be more popular in our Eastern Pennsylvania area. This year is definitely the year of the “Sweetheart Cake”. A sweetheart cake is more of a “catchy” term, but it’s basically a smaller cake that is just shared between the couple. Often, it’s used for the cake cutting ceremony and then other desserts or treats are served to […]

Timing your Wedding Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner

By |April 22nd, 2015|

We’ve talked about wedding rehearsals before. Back in 2012 (WHAT?!), we talked about the 12 Steps to Smooth and Efficient Wedding Rehearsal and in 2013, we talked about some tips for Planning for your Wedding Rehearsal. Both have flowed pretty deep through the Pinterest world and we thought it’d be a good time to talk about timing your wedding rehearsal as well as when to schedule your rehearsal d […]

Top 5 Reasons Not To Use An Aisle Runner – Unless You Have To

By |April 15th, 2015|

Anyone who’s a client of ours has heard us firmly state how much we do not like aisle runners. They are beautiful, but a logistical nightmare and often not one we can help much with. So, today, we want to talk FIRST about why we don’t recommend them and SECOND talk about some tips if you do plan on using one.

For the record, we totally agree with the guys […]

Wedding Reception Seating: What side do I sit on?

By |March 25th, 2015|

As you’re working on your wedding reception seating plan, you might find yourself thinking “What side of my partner do I sit on?”.

The answer, of course, is up to you. But if you want to get “technical”, there’s an easy way to remember. Just ask yourself:

If you’re both right-handed: the lady sits on the right, the gent sits on the left.

If you’re both left-handed: the lady […]

Organizing Your Email Inbox During the Wedding Planning Process

By |March 18th, 2015|

One of the things I can honestly say I’m most proud about myself is my ability to organize – especially my email inboxes. Between managing 25 different weddings at a time on top of personal emails, I’m happy to say that most days my inbox has no more than 20 emails in it at any given time.

I have a method for keeping my inbox so light, but what I mostly want to focus on is organizing your email […]
