And on May 6 we rest

Hello my lovelies.

I have to apologize, I've been fairly absent from the blog world this week. This week has included a trip to Indianapolis, two meetings with brides, and lots of yardwork. We spent last night celebrating Cinco de Mayo with friends and when push came to shove I had to get into bed instead of plan a Double Dip or Vlog. So please forgive me if this post is boring & rambles on, but I promise, there is a point.

I need some help.

When I started planning weddings I had no expectations. I met my first couple at my parent's restaurant and volunteered to help. I wanted to help make my first couple's day better and see if I liked this whole wedding planning thing. In the end their day was perfect and I loved making it so.

Earlier this week I caught up with the bride and groom who played my guinea pigs and they gave me a delightful present. Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette handbook, some milano cookies, tea, coffee & a generous monetary gift.

So now comes the task of spending the gift. The first thing I'm planning on investing in is a website. I've been looking for a designer but have realized that to start out with I need to decide on a business name. I've tossed around some names but need your opinions.

I've put a poll on the right side bar and if you'd kindly take the time to vote on a name for my business I'd really appreciate it. And if you have any stellar web designers you'd like to pass along I'd love you forever.

I am so exciting for you Cole! I HATED planning my wedding so I know this business would NOT be for me but I'll bet you'll be amazing at this job!

I like Champagne Wishes the best...what about Champagne Wish Weddings? or something with weddings in the title?

Amy said...

champagne wishes!!! It wouldn't let me hit an "enter" on the selection, but I love that!

Beth said...

I like Champagne Wishes too and it wouldn't let me hit enter to select. Might want to check that :)

I LOVE Champagne Wishes.

I have a website designer that would be fabulous! Birdeye Designs. They are some of my friends from high school and have really neat creative ideas. I'm sure they'd be excited about talking to you, because yours is a whole new type of business for them to think up creative ideas!

Let me know if you want their info. Better yet...I'll email them now! :)

Definitely like Champagne Wishes the best. But it wouldn't let me submit my vote. My friend wants to open a consignment bridal shop and is trying to convince me to move and help her. I'm actually kind of considering it.

I am against the grain (as per usual), but what about something simple off your blog line, like "Love and Happiness Events" or "Adventures in Love?"

steph c said...

I voted for Nonpareil.. mostly because I LOVE them ;) But I think it's a super cute name. Although I do like Kate's idea to somehow tie your blog name into it!

How exciting to pick out a name!

Kate.Stoltzfus said...

I think using your own name and making it a personal brand could be a good option.

But if you really want to choose a business name, I like Kate's suggestion of using Love and Happiness in someway!

Amanda said...

I agree with Kate--While I do like Champagne Wishes like so many others, I think it would be kinda cool to connect new business with your blog. That way it would be easy to transition to the business and people would find it easier to remember your name.

How exciting for you!!

Jessica said...

Ooh, I love the idea of incorporating your blog name but Champagne Wishes and Simply You are great names too.

I love the designs by How Joyful. Very clean and crisp. :D

I like Simply You but whatever you decide I'm sure it would be fabulous.
