Today we have a great post by our newest intern Tiffany!
Weddings are becoming more and more personalized as the years move forward. Brides and grooms are intent on making their special day as unique as possible – and rightly so, it’s all about them! One trend that we have seen sprout in weddings this past year has also crossed over into every holiday, special occasion and daily decor : BANNERS.

No longer just your old school grommet “Happy Birthday” from the party store, banners have taken on all shapes, sizes, styles and materials. Such a simple expression of your personality that will make your guests go “Oh, that’ s SO them.” If you’re crafty, break out the scissors, glue and string and get cracking. Or if you rather spend your time on other wedding details, peruse websites like Etsy for a plethora of choices with personalization options. You really can’t go wrong!
Tiffany has been in, planned and coordinated over 20 weddings – only one being her own. For the past 8 years Tiffany lived in Beverly Hills, CA with her husband, David, and worked as a professional actress. During that time, Tiffany remained involved in event and wedding planning, and partnered in a business making emergency bridal kits. But life stepped in and moved Tiffany and David to Nashville in February of 2011 where she stumbled upon Ashley and Amy at Wedding 101. Now Tiffany fuses her wedding and entertainment knowledge to help brides create unique and creative weddings that are an expression of themselves.
Tiffany met her hubby, David, a month before she graduated from Furman University in Greenville, SC (BA of Theatre Arts). They married in March of 2003 in Pensacola, FL.
