Wedding planner shares visions at bridal workshop
News from Hopkinsville Kentucky New Era:

Since starting her wedding planning business eight years ago, Visions by Debra, Debra Harris has been surprised by many of the questions brides-to-be ask when they want to plan their own weddings.

“There are brides out there who cannot afford to have a wedding planner and we thought having this workshop might be a way for them to get a good start on planning their wedding,” Harris said. “I hear from vendors who don’t have planners how bad it is for the couple to not have things in place.”

DALLAS — From the trunks of cars and down the streets of downtown Dallas, hundreds came to WFAA’s Young Street studios with boxes and bags filled with a piece of their hearts.

“My cousin died when he was a baby, so I thought it was a perfect cause,” one woman said.

“We’re donating this from Teresa Bishop. She passed away in January,” said Bishop’s brother.

They all carried wedding dresses, which will be transformed into tiny “angel gowns,” destined for babies that never make it home from the hospital. NICU Helping Hands of Fort Worth uses volunteer seamstresses to fill orders for hospitals. The need is far greater than it should be.

Would you hire a social media wedding planner for your big day?
News from WXYZ:

(WXYZ) – Wedding planning is going high tech. 

One new service offered at certain New York hotels wants to make sure your nuptials make a splash on social media. 

We’re talking about wedding selfie stations, updated Facebook statuses and dedicated hashtags for your big day.

W Hotels in New York are now offering social media wedding planning services for their brides-to-be.

The luxury hotel chain says a social media concierge will be involved in every step of the planing process, helping to build a social media footprint for the client’s big day.

The chain says that brides have even asked what they could do to have their wedding trend.

From documenting the engagement via Facebook to creating wedding hashtags to making sure Instagram is full of pics of you walking down the aisle—the concierge will be all over it.

One of their duties even includes making you a dream honeymoon board on Pinterest. 

But don’t think a wedding showcase on social media will be cheap, the service will run couples a cool $ 3,000.

File that one under the #expensivewedding.

Do you think this service will take off everywhere? Comment in the section below.

Hundreds of wedding dresses donated in ‘angel gown’ campaign

Updated yesterday at 9:36 PM

The response has been overwhelming to a call for wedding dresses that can be re-purposed as “angel gowns” for babies who never make it home from the hospital.

WFAA launched a collection drive on Monday in the wake of a story broadcast last week about volunteers who are creating the gowns.

Each of the donated wedding dresses comes with a special story, of course. One recent bride handed over her dress in tears, saying she knew that this was to be its destiny.

Donors are welcome to keep a section of their treasured heirloom for themselves.

Joy Rodriguez carefully begins to disassemble an exquisite wedding gown, a gown that symbolized love, happiness and hope. The purpose of taking apart this beautiful gown is bittersweet, for this gown and many others that are donated to the NICU Helping Hands’ Angel Gowns Program will be made into beautiful burial gowns for premature infants who lost their struggle for life. A thread of love ties the wedding dresses and burial gowns together.

The Angel Gowns Program is just one arm of the bereavement services provided by NICU Helping Hands, an organization based in Fort Worth, Texas. This non-profit organization is a hospital-based program that expands the support services and level of education provided to parents and other family members affected by the hospitalization of a newborn in the NICU.

These support components include parent support and education, sibling support, hospital to home preparation, memory archiving, antepartum support, transport support, and bereavement.

FORT WORTH — It’s not a bride who will be wearing any of the wedding gowns gathered by Lisa Grubbs, but a baby.

Each donated dress is being transformed into angel gowns for babies who never make it home from the hospital.

“There’s something hopeful about that start of life, about a wedding, and to me, it’s that full circle,” said Grubbs, founder of NICU Helping Hands. “This child who is so loved by its parents, being wrapped in love by a bride.”

Lisa Grubbs is the wife of a specialist for premature babies. She and her husband believe the passing of a child is a sacred event that should be honored. It’s one reason she started NICU Helping Hands, a Fort Worth organization created to support parents both educationally and emotionally.
