We are delighted to once again present Texas-based wedding planner and superstar, Donnie Brown, Donnie Brown Weddings and Events, in his second of many monthly contributing columns. You may know him from the popular TV show, “Whose Wedding is it Anyway?”
Well-known for his direct and vivacious personality, he is sure to keep us in stitches with his humorous opinions and sometimes unbelievable tales from his experiences as a planner over the years. In addition, he will keep readers up-to-date on the latest bridal trends and “must haves.”
Here, in his next column, Donnie takes us through the various headaches and hair-pulling drama that can arise when it comes to the guest list - enjoy!
On May 17, brides, from all over the Austin area, came out to Mariee de la Nuit (meaning "Bride of the Night") at La Paloma Events Center.
The French-themed bridal and fashion show was a unique, inspiring and enchanting evening, full of delicious aromas and lovely visions – including a cigar bar and lounge for men, a live DIY demonstration, an amazing photo booth, libations and light bites, and a fabulous group of Austin’s top wedding professionals.
The Texas Wedding Guide sponsored this wonderful affair. A huge ‘thank you’ to all the vendors involved in this event – it wouldn’t have been as successful without your participation. Wedding professionals include: iLove Wedding & Event Design, Arthouse Floral, Stella & Dot, Emily Claire, Southern Fine Dining, Stationary Bakery, Amazing Kakes, Premier Party Central, Rebel With A Camera, Melange Bridal and Duchman Family Winery. Thanks to all the brides and their fiancés for joining us!
