So, this week...

I went to Bloomingdale's in Century City last Thursday for a cool little event they did showcasing their wedding registry. Music, cake by Nancy Kay's Confections (seriously? NOTHING better than cake tastings!), cocktails, hors d'ouerves, it was really nice. The only problem was that it was the same night as the VP debate, and if you've been paying attention to the news you know that pretty much everyone was at home watching that. But they still got a nice little crowd.

Wendy Cardinale, who is the manager of that department, told me that they have the largest and most diverse selection of household goods and registry items on the westside, and looking around, I certainly didn't doubt it. There were definitely a few things I wouldn't have minded registering for now, as a matter of fact.

This Sunday is the Marriage Fair in Studio City, from 11am - 6pm. Yours truly is going to be speaking on, well, I'm not sure what, but I am going to be answering questions about wedding planning. I'm so excited - I coordinated my first commitment ceremony last year, and to me it's just a civil rights issue. Plus, you know, bigger client pool. :-) The Marriage Fair is geared towards gay and lesbian couple, but of course there is something for everyone, so drop by, find me, and say Hi.

Also, here's a question I recently answered in the forum in weddingwire.com:

Is this an appropriate possibility for a wedding site??
So, we still have not picked a date, but I wanted to think about some things first. My mom was married at the church she was raised in..my grandparents were big in the church. They had worked there for 30 years. They passed away when I was 5... I am 22 now. Anyways, we havent been to the church since I was 7 or 8 because we moved and it was a good hour drive to get there. So, I am wondering...I always wanted to get married where my mom did and the church is gorgeous so that is a plus. Is it appropriate to consider the church as a possible wedding site???
Of course! I bet you the church would be thrilled when they hear your story, that you want to get married in the same church your parents did, and that your grandparents were such a big part of. How cool is that? I say, give them a call and find out what you have to do to make that happen - is there a fee, do you have to take pre-marital classes - and set the date.
