My Big Day was honored to be chosen as the planners for this stunning garden wedding. The event was hosted at the lovely home of Gary and Carol Ann Hixon of Fort Collins, near Horsetooth Reservoir. The bride and groom, Nikki & Ryder, were surrounded by loved ones who helped with all the little touches that made the day extra special.
Hosting a large event a a private home is no small feat. Not only are you bringing in decorations and rentals to a location vendors haven't been to before, but you need an XXL emergency kit available to trouble-shoot any accessories needed, should the home not be equipped with traditional supplies you would find at a venue. Luckily, My Big Day carries a large amount of supplies with us, AND the Hixons are no strangers to hosting large galas at their home. Aside from some unpreventable weather just prior to the wedding, the day want off without a hitch!
Thank you to all the vendors who made Ryder & Nikki's wedding a spectacular celebration of love!

No event – no matter how well-planned and well-run – is immune to the occasional crisis or disaster.
My Big Day believes a good event planner will be able to think on his or her feet for the small stuff, and have a solid crisis plan in place for dealing with the biggies. You can’t possibly expect to plan for every type of crisis, but a little advance planning will go a long way to ensure that you can handle whatever comes your way!
If you are well prepared, chances are you won't need the Plan B. But that one time when everything goes wrong, you'll be glad you were prepared!

Being a party planner, one of the issues that commonly comes up is how to get people home safely. While it is not my responsibility, ultimately providing resources to party guests is the smart thing to do.
My Big Day Events has partnered with a number of taxi companies and car services. We list these options with every event we host. Below is a list of those companies we recommend.
As we are gearing up for Halloween, we are tempted to get elaborate with our decorations, and surprises for Trick or Treaters!
My Big Day certainly loves a good murder scene at parties... fake of course.
In researching some creative ideas for our 'Create Your Own Murder Scene' photobooth a the "Slash-back to the 80's" party, we came across this website with some Halloween pranks that went horribly wrong.
Be inspired, decorate smart!
