Bobby Pins, Extensions & Hair Spray with Stacie Hutchinson
2428

The hair stylist you select for your bridal party is one of your most important hires. There is so much to understand and to consider when planning your wedding hair looks. Listen to this episode to hear co-hosts Kristina, Mike and Sharon talk with hairdresser, Stacie Hutchinson about considering the aesthetic of your stylist, scheduling trial runs, gathering inspiration photos and when a 2nd stylist is needed. Stay tuned because this episode contains ALL THE THINGS a bride should consider when hiring a stylist for herself and the bridal party!

 Stacie's career in the hair industry started in 2005 and although her first love was bridal make-up, she found bridal hair to be her lasting passion and creative outlet. She has pursued additional education, so she remains current on trends and all the tips and tricks. After over 17 years in the industry, Stacie still gets excited about getting to be part of each bride’s special day! Stacie also has worked for the Kentucky Opera placing wigs and doing makeup.

• [03:26] Stacie “I think then the top thing to consider is the style of your stylist. Not every stylist has the same style. Some of them are better at boho, some of them are better at sleek looks. And some just aren't versed in using added additives to the hair, like extensions or buns that make the hair make you look like you have more hair than what you have. 
• [18:38] Kristina “When you're going to book your stylist for that day. How many can you have but then also do they? Do they find someone else to help them or work with them?”

Put Your Own Brand Of Uniqueness On Your Wedding Desserts with Larisa Crawley
1982

Wanting something other than the traditional wedding cake for your coupling celebration confections! Listen to this episode as our special guest Larisa Crawley of Crawley Creative Confections shares about technology opening a whole new world with 3D printing… and that the sky's the limit for the shapes that can be designed, customized, and printed. Go ahead! We give you permission to put your own brand of uniqueness on your celebratory desserts!

Larisa Crawley is the owner and artist for Crawley Creative Confections. She started the KY registered home bakery in February 2021 as a way to make extra money for her family. By October 2021, the bakery was booming, and Larisa began running Crawley Creative Confections full-time! With over 15 years of art experience, she uses her custom hand iced cookies as an edible canvas! Her love of color and delicious foods make the bakery’s one of a kind French macaron truly a life changing experience! Larisa focuses on providing unmatched customer service with yummy artisan goods that can be customized just for you!

Timestamps:
• [02:35] Mike: nowadays, a lot of people are giving cookies as favors at weddings. And I think that's a great idea. Because it's not something you know, it's something that you can take home and eat instead of putting it in a drawer somewhere. 
• [03:20] Larisa: The best thing is it's completely customizable. So I do a lot of graphic design for our company, other bakers, even other individuals. And the best part is that I can literally design a shape on my iPad and print it out in less than three hours.
• [10:49] Larisa explains the differences between macarons and macaroons. 
• [18:05] Kristina talks about the current wedding trends with cakes and how people are incorporating macarons into their wedding.

The "F" Word & The "A" Team REBOOT
1990

What do we mean by “F” word and “A” team? Should you use Friendors (the “F” word) when planning possibly one of the biggest days of your life? A Friendor is a friend or a family member that you ask (or hire) to take the place of a wedding professional to participate in the planning or execution of events for your wedding. When it comes to weddings, THERE ARE NO DO-OVERS! 

By the end of the episode, we know you will understand that just because you're hiring your friend or family does not mean you will save money! You will discover by listening that a great wedding planner will bring an “A” wedding team of expert vendors to get you down the aisle and to the altar with all your friendships and family relationships intact.
