Posted by in In the Studio

Today I want to introduce you to Wendy Ramos of Just Wenderful Event Planning & Design. She’s a Southern California wedding planner, and I love her style. Many of the couples we work with are also from Southern California, so maybe I was just a Southern California girl in another life…

“My style is fun and personal with a love for homespun details!” Wendy says. ”What makes me different is that I’m not your usual cookie cutter, sugar coating kind of planner. There are all sorts of ideas, dreams, compromises, and budgets that make a wedding day come true.”

“Also, I love blending and celebrating different traditions and cultures together. We have a lot of multi-cultural clients here in Southern California and we love it!”

When you work with a planner you have access to someone with lots of wedding experience and who can answer those tough questions. Like, “Is it OK to not invite children to my wedding?” and “How do I show I’m thankful to those that aren’t part of my bridal party?”

“It is definitely OK to not invite children,” Wendy says.” “Before sending out the invites with a side “Adult Reception” note, try to spread the news to your invitees by word of mouth but remember there will always be the few that will voice out their disagreement with this choice.”

“You can show your gratitude to grandparents or sponsors by giving them a boutonniere or by giving them a quick thanks during your speech” explains Wendy. “You can also purchase them a small thank you gift.”

Wendy has been planning events ever since she was an undergraduate at UCLA. But it wasn’t until three years ago that she officially opened Just Wenderful.

“I’m still as passionate for it as I was since day one,” says Wendy. “What I love most is the day-of. Although it’s stressful at times, seeing our clients’ face light up from seeing their inspirations come together on such an important day is pretty much the most amazing feeling.”

“The ceremony and hiding while my couples’ exchange their vows is also a favorite. Can’t tell you I’ve never gotten teary eyed…it always happens!”
