I’ve been thinking about giving you all a behind the scenes look at how our weeks usually go here at Young Love Events. As wedding coordinators in Orlando we typically spend a lot of time doing behind the scenes work. So every couple weeks I’ll do a “Weekly Wrap Up” to let you know what’s going on over here at Young Love Events! Hope you all enjoy it!
Last week was a crazy busy week that included The Big Fake Wedding on Wednesday and a wedding on Saturday. We typically do 1 wedding a week that way we can focus all of our attention on that event and have no distractions. Dealing with the show on the same week it made me realize exactly why I stick to that plan!
The Big Fake Wedding as I posted before is a bridal show alternative that includes a real wedding. My role was day of coordinator so it still ran like a regular wedding. Early Wednesday morning I headed to the Orlando Science Center to set up my vendor table and to see the layout for the ceremony. As a normal wedding goes we had rehearsal, ceremony, reception and the exit. I was in charge of the rehearsal, ceremony and exit. I worked on planning an exit for all the “guests” and ended up choosing to use kazoos! It was such a fun night and I met so many amazing people! All the while I’m getting calls from vendors for my wedding that Saturday.
This wedding we had was in Melbourne, FL and was extra special because we were having a special surprise guest, Howie D from the Backstreet Boys. The Bride’s mother called to tell me the plans and she was full of excitement, as was I. We were having issues with the chair covers from the rental company but it all worked out and Howie D showed up. The level of excitement and surprise from the Bride and Groom did not compare to the guests and the Mother of the Bride (she love the BSB too!). View this link for actual photos and videos of the moment! Yes, we made it all the way to ABC News, Cosmopolitan and Huffington Post! Before Howie D left he asked to sign their guest book, I’m sure they will never forget him being there!

So much fun for one week!
