For every bride-to-be who has desired to have the input of celebrity wedding planner David Tutera for their special day, now is your chance. The acclaimed host of “My Fair Wedding” is the special guest this weekend for the Uniquely Yours Bridal Showcase on January 12 and 13. Allowing brides a more up-close-and personal experience with the artistic visionary, David will host two VIP events that he hopes brides will use as an opportunity to seek out his expertise. “I want the brides to feel comfortable to come up to me and ask any questions and know that I am going to be very honest and give them the best advice possible. At the end of the day, I want every girl to know that there is a special way to execute their wedding without spending a lot of money,” he shared.
Understanding that not every bride’s budget is the same, David’s advice for the budget conscious couple is to pay attention to the details and to think outside the box. “It’s not about the money that you can or cannot spend. You want to make your wedding memorable in the sense that people feel like they are actually going to something that is more of an experience. The food represents who you are as a couple; the music represents the storytelling of who you are as a couple and your love. Change up the pace of the party so it isn’t the same traditional format over and over.”
While some brides may shy away from the pageantry if it isn’t their first trip down the aisle, David shuns the idea. He is an advocate of wanting every bride to treat it like it’s their very first time. “I’m a big fan if you have done it once or want to do it again, you should never look at yourself as considering it to be less or more. Always do it with your heart and make sure you actually execute it.”
David’s popular We TV show “My Fair Wedding” has every bride-to-be waiting with bated breath to be chosen to have David as their fairy godfather and turn their wedding dreams into reality. While the chances of being chosen are very slim, if you are looking to have the Tutera touch on your special day, you can enlist the help of wedding planners trained by the master himself. David praises the service David Tutera Wedding Planners as an affordable tool to handle all your wedding planning needs. "It is a subscription service where you get all my knowledge of 25+ years and you have a team of experts that are available to you over the phone or online," he explained.
Despite having an incredible list of celebrity clientele, David has his eye on two dream celebrity bride collaborations. After announcing her engagement at the end of last year, David made it known on Twitter he would love to work with Kelly Clarkson on her upcoming nuptials, and shared that he is a big fan of the pop singer. When asked about the tweet and his desire to work with Kelly, David shared an enthusiastic and excited, “I would love to do that! Yes!” As for his other dream celebrity client, David wants to create an over-the-top wedding for none other than Mother Monster herself – Lady Gaga. Now that would be the wedding of the century.
