Princess Wedding Co 10 Year Birthday and Special Deal!

PWC Logo2 Full Color

Princess Wedding Co was born on December 2003. Since then our brand has grown and changed tremendously. I started this company as a small project in Oklahoma City. Then in 2005 from planning city weddings we moved to Panama City Beach, Florida and began creating chic and elegant beach weddings. We started with one employee, now we work with 4 wonderful ladies and a great group of hand picked vendors. Those people are my lifesavers and are directly responsible for Princess Wedding Co success.

I honestly can’t believe it’s been 10 years! Unbelievable! Here is a toast to the next ten years!

To celebrate 10 year birthday of Princess Wedding Co we would like to offer $200 off  all of our packages (any day or time of the week in 2014) that are booked before January 15th. Hurry, we can not wait to work with you in 2014! Lets create beautiful and unforgettable event together!

Our Beach Wedding Office: Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Friends,

We want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

I love Thanksgiving, not only because you get to cook (which I love!) and eat awesome food, but because this day marks the beginning of Holiday Season. We can start decorating for Christmas, which I secretly started 2 week ago,  and because everybody around becomes more cheerful, joyful and just all around nicer.  So cheers to a great Holiday Season, much needed family time and some absolutely delicious food.

Love, Kristina

Our Beach Wedding Office: Behind the Scenes of Setting up Beach Wedding

480346_10200220384966322_1950809140_n

Hello all,

Today I will share with you how we prepare for each of our beach weddings. From start to finnish. Here we go:

Two weeks before the wedding one of our coordinators (Annely, Me or Janet) will call you to go over the last details of the wedding. At this time we will finalize colors, number of chairs, and flow of the ceremony. We will also let you know what time to show up and what to bring. All last minute questions will be answered at this time (obviously you can still call us if you have more questions, but main things will be ironed out at this time).

The day before the wedding our staff loads the car with all decorations, checks the music, and goes over final details with all the vendors involved (usually photographer, officiate, coordinator and set up person).

On the actual wedding day we show up about 2 hours before the start of ceremony. Chairs and arbor go up first, followed by chairs sashes, sand ceremony table, aisle way decore and shoes basket. Raking of the sand is done last.

Sometimes our kiddos come to assist :) 1374335_708761915820491_267773804_n

When everything is ready and looking gorgeous, our photographers (Mayya, Edina or Ivana) take few shots of the set up.

At this point guests are staring to show up and the show begins….. Here is post about what happens during the actual ceremony.

After the last pictures has been taken and all guest are gone, we start  the tear down. Everything is loaded back to the car and we are on our way home. Tired but happy for another successful event.

The next day linens and bamboo arbor chiffon gets washed and prepped for the next beach wedding.

And so it begins all over again…….

Now you know what happens not just during the ceremony but before and after :)

Happy Planning,

Planing Emerald Coast Beach Wedding: Client Experience

princess wedding destin beach wedding

Planning a beach wedding is stressful enough, but when you have to do it from another state it can be more that overwhelming. They key is to find a wedding company or a person who you can connect with and trust.  Our philosophy at Princess Wedding Co is to deliver personalized experience to destination wedding planning. To always be available to you over the phone or email, which, in my opinion, is the KEY in planning a destination wedding.

Our brand is not our logo or pictures we post on our website and blog.  It is the feeling and experience we want to give our brides  throughout the beach wedding planning. We are not in the business of selling just service. We are in the business of creating a lifelong experience of elegance, love and serenity.

Happy Tuesday,

Kristina

My 8 Favorite Things: Kristina

Hello everyone,

Every year each member of our staff shares their 8 favorite things with our readers. I really like this tradition because not only I get to share my must haves but I also discover quite a few things for myself just by reading what other girls post.

So here are my 8 favorite things:

1. Coconut oil

coconut-oil

Seriously this is the best thing for your hair. This past year I have ruined my hair. It was dry and unhealthy. I tried keratin treatments, expensive hair masks and conditioners but nothing worked like coconut oil. And the best part: it is less than $10. Rub a little bit of coconut oil in your palms (it melts instantly) and apply it to your hair ends. I sleep with this mask overnight and then wash my hair in the morning, but you can just hold it for 10-15 minutes before shower. Use of coconut oil is almost unlimited: you can cook with it, use it as coffee creamer, use as lotion, or dietary supplement.

2. Monogrammed  Notebooks

note book

One thing that is always  present on my desk is a notebook. It stores my to do list for the day, new random ideas for blogs and weddings, future projects, grocery lists and so on.  I have it with me during meetings and phone calls. All information first goes on my notebook. My notebook keeps me organized.

3. Green Tea Latte from Starbucks

green tea latte

Just love it. I actually attempted to make one myself (ordered green tea macha and all. Not sure if it is psychological or not, but it just doesn’t taste as good).

4. JCrew Perfect-Fit T-shirts

23340_BL9410

I love basic JCrew T-shirts. It seems that I love them so much that in 2012 they literally became my daily uniform. Why? Because, they are soft and perfectly long. I naturally have them in all colors.

5. Victoria Secret Pajamas

V348026

Nothing new here really. I loved VS PJ’s last year and I love them in now. Victoria Secret is the best! Here is my favorite style.

6. My iPhone

iphone

It is my timesaver, my assistant, and occasionally babysitter (restaurants and toddlers, enough said). Long ago in a stone age of beach wedding planning when bride called my cell phone with questions about date openings or any info on the exciting weddings, I had to get back to the office for that. Now I get access to all of my bride’s files on the go, I can sign contracts, get updates, have FaceTime meetings and just read my favorite blogs while standing in line at the store.

7. Michael Kors Small Crossbody Purse

michael kors purse

I like the new trend of crossbody purse. It holds all  my essentials without the need for the big purse. I also like that  you can wear it from casual to formal event.  It is also perfect for busy moms who need their hands free to chase the kiddos.

8. Slow Cooker/ Crock Pot

crockpot

I discovered crock pot just a few months ago and now I can’t live without it. I am a traditional wife in a sense that I try to cook dinner for my family. Being a full time mom who is running a growing business it is harder and harder for me to be able to cook. Well, here comes the crockpot to the rescue. It is so easy, convenient and yummy! There are tons of awesome recipes on Pinterest that you can make gourmet meals with just few ingredients. Here are few that I love:

Salsa Chicken:

4 or so chicken breasts (it can even be frozen, if you are like me and forget to defrost it),

1 can of salsa

Optional: can of drained corn, can of drained black beans

On low 6 hours, on high 4 hrs and Tada you have yummy dinner.

Pulled Pork:

about 2-6  lbs pork loin

1 sliced onionsoy sauce (or Worcester sauce)  to taste

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 cup of water

salt and peper to taste

Those are my favorite things right now. Stay tuned for more 8 favorite things from Princess Wedding girls.
