Great news from Conference & Incentive Travel Magazine.  Some ‘joined-up’ thinking from the events industry had got to be good news in attracting more major events to the UK: CLICK C&IT

Each organisation can surely retain it’s area of representation and a lobbying voice for its members, whilst agreeing some common ground and areas of mutual working that will benefit the UK brand in international events.  Good luck to them.

Wedding Proposal Planning

Wedding Proposal Planning

Hapless would-be grooms can now relax in the knowledge that the much anticipated (and often feared) dry mouthed, sweaty palmed marriage proposal will go without a hitch, thanks to ‘Queen of Hearts’ Liz Taylor; your wedding proposal planning fairy godmother!.

Liz, who runs the Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC), has recently turned her focus to affairs of the heart and is fast becoming the ‘go to’ specialist for perfect wedding proposal planning.

wedding propsal planning

She says: “I’d heard stories from my friends and clients about how their partners proposed. In many cases it wasn’t what they had imagined or hoped for. I even have a friend who was proposed to while she was washing up!

“It’s not necessarily about planning the most elaborate or extravagant proposal, but about the love and sincerity you show through the proposal.”

As a leading wedding and private party organiser to the stars with clients including Gary Barlow, a host of Coronation Street stars, Rugby international Nick Robinson, football stars Yaya Toure and Gary Neville and retail guru Mary Portas, Liz knows better than most how to make a moment special and memorable.

“People have been hiring me for wedding day inspiration and organisation for over 25 years. I have often been asked for my thoughts on creating the perfect proposal, so it was a natural progression to move this year into offering a bespoke service to help people realise their proposal vision. Many brides and grooms have ideas, but just have no idea how to turn that vision into a reality. That’s where I come in,” she explains.

‘And it has been a fantastic move.  I have already staged four proposal events this year. One which took place in a bedoiun tent in the Moroccan desert. One which happened on private beach in Hawaii. And another which took place in the garden of a home in Cheshire which we dressed with a thousand candles.  And we have another six proposals to create this year. It is proving to be an exciting and fun new business opportunity.’

And Liz has some key do’s and don’ts to ensure the proposer receives an ‘I will’ rather than ‘I won’t’!

-Do make sure the proposal has an element of surprise as surveys show that almost 90% of women feel the surprise factor is very important for a proposal.

-Don’t make a public proposal unless you have very good reason to believe your partner will love it.
We’ve all seen that in films and on TV, proposals at sports games, the cinema or city squares seem to work magically. But keep in mind that these are scripted! In real life, not everyone likes to have publicity during such an intimate moment.

-Do pick a memorable location. This doesn’t have to be Fiji or at the top of Mount Everest, but any place that is significant to you both.

-Do speak from the heart. Be honest, be direct and be sincere.

-Make it fun!

Latest Wedding Style Tips

And Liz ensures each proposal event is extremely personal and unique by making certain the person doing the proposing is heavily involved in the entire process.

She says: “I see myself as a bit of an ‘ambassador of love’ in that I make sure each proposal includes sincerity, surprise and symbolism. But when someone works with me to plan the proposal, I need them to be highly involved in the whole process. It’s the small details that only a partner would know that make all the difference.

“Integrating specific moments into the proposal such as what your partner ordered on your first date really is the icing on the cake. It will leave your prospective bride or groom overwhelmed by your sincerity and thoughtfulness. Expressing your love from the heart is obviously the most important part, but attention to detail can make the emotional impact all the greater.”

Let Me Entertain You…tips for choosing wedding entertainment

For TLC, using great entertainment is the heart and soul of a wedding, or indeed any party.  The entertainment is remembered long after the lights go down, so choosing someone to set the party alight is essential.  Liz Taylor shares her thoughts on some of the most popular and innovative entertainers that might provide the WOW in your big day:

WEDDING BELLS

Entertainment at the wedding ceremony is popular and varied, but the trend at the moment is to keep a romantic feel.  Harpist, soloists and cellists are all good, but for something amazing, hire a large contemporary or gospel choir.  Many couples make their wedding day transport part of the fun too, with couples arriving in high performance sports cars, on penny-farthings, by steam train and even by helicopter.  Coronation Street’s Alan Halsall arrived at his wedding to Lucy-Jo Hudson in a bat mobile!  Hire a vintage coach or fleet of VW camper vans to take guests from the wedding ceremony to the reception and make the journey part of the excitement of the day.

PROVIDING A WELCOME

Entertainment as soon as your guests arrive adds an instant edge of glamour and fun to the wedding reception.  There are fun acrobats, fire eaters and stilt walkers who can perform outside the reception venue, paparazzi style photographers to offer a celebrity style welcome, comedic actors to escort guests to the reception or man the cloakroom!, or opt for the sophistication of a contemporary, classical ensemble playing al fresco.

KEEPING THE KIDS ENTERTAINED

Children play a vital role in any wedding day, but during the speeches entertainment just for them is a good investment.  Vintage Punch and Judy shows, racing car tracks for the boys, mini-make overs for the girls with manicurists and fabulous dress-up boxes, magicians and large screen Wi games.  For that extra bit of magic, look at entertainers such as a special kid’s meal set in Willi Wonka’s chocolate factory or an Alice in Wonderland inspired children’s play space.  For real fun, and popular with mums and dads too, consider Britain’s Got Talent stars Stavros Flatley.

GET THE PARTY STARTED

Make the drinks reception as much a part of the wedding party as the evening disco.  Offer a photo booth that will let you create an OK Magazine cover of your wedding day, invite some special guests with tribute artists of royalty and your favourite pop stars, showcase  a contemporary barber shop trio or 1940s big band singers, and hire a toastmaster to announce all your guests as they arrive – it makes everyone feel special.

TALK OF THE TABLE

Entertainment at the wedding breakfast tables keeps the atmosphere up-beat.  Think table magicians such as the internationally acclaimed Dynamo, table-side mixologists blending your favourite cocktail, contemporary poets or caricaturists visiting each person, or leave fun games one table for guests to participate in such as a quiz about the bride and groom.  If the budget allows, you can run the quiz on I-pads and then offer the winning table a prize at the end of the speeches!  It really helps to get people on the table chatting to each other.

THE MAIN ACT

I always recommend investing in a good live party band that can play during the wedding breakfast and reception and we use some incredible international bands that are exclusive to TLC, but the UK has a wealth of musical talent on offer.  Consider a tribute artist/band of your favourite act from Elvis to Take That, much cheaper and often just as good!  For a slightly bigger budget, former X Factor of BGT artists are very popular or opt for an amazing London or New York DJ to really get the party started!

SURPRISE, SURPISE

Including a surprise element makes any event a success.  Surprise singing waiters are a popular choice, a celebrity artist as your cabaret works well, or think big and hire fairground rides for outside complete with candy floss stall, popcorn machines and hot-dog vendors, or stage a spectacular fireworks display to round off the night.
