Happy New Year ~ CME Floral Announced!!


With the New Year here I have resolved to become a better blogger!! As I am finally finding the time to "catch up" I realize there were some wonderful weddings that I did not showcase from 2009 nor all the fun ideas and thoughts I had throughout the year to share with you all. In 2010 I will be more devoted to setting time aside to blog and provide more information to those couples planning a wedding, keeping up to date on CME and other Wedding vendors.

2009 was such a great year for CME!! We grew exponentially from last year, I added more rentals to my decor pieces, and a few wonderful invitation vendors to expand the collection I can offer to Brides. Most notably the best thing that happened to me this year was I discovered a talent and passion in floral design. CMaries Floral was born in 2009. I had so many brides this past year on tighter budgets with the economy and job losses and this was just one area they didn't want to break the bank on. A bride of mine in May asked me to take on the challenge of doing her flowers so I graciously agreed with disclaimers. I armed up with a license and a few educational classes and went to work!! I ended the year designing flowers for 5 of my weddings. Each was so different and fun and I LOVED doing it!! So with that being said I have officially added doing floral design for those brides who are looking for great flowers at a fraction of the cost. Please feel free to contact me for pricing, ideas etc!! There will be discounts with both planning and flowers if they are booked through CME.

To kick off the new decade I will be offering 2 promotions for engaged couples

Wedding Planning ~ $100 OFF Day of Coordination
$250 OFF planning packages from $1,500-$2750
$500 OFF our FULL Planning package ~ unlimited planning hours & meetings $3,500

Flowers ~ the first 10 brides that sign contracts in the New Year will receive a $50.00 credit on their flower bill as part of a 2010 promotion!! Toss bouquets are included in all of CMaries orders.

I am so excited to see what 2010 will bring for CMaries and even more excited to meet all of my new brides and clients! I am truly blessed the be able to do what I love and that is working with such amazing couples and being able to make their Wedding Day everything they dream of!! I also LOVE all of the vendors I get to work with on every event. There are so many amazing vendors out there who love what they do as much as I do!!

Thank you to all of my 2009 Clients, vendors and support system for making this past year one that I will never forget!!

My first order of business this year will be to bring back the much loved Vendor of the Month

Happy New Year and Best wishes to you all in 2010!

Charity Campaign - Renew 2010


Christina Marie Events will be renewing our Charity campaign in 2010, this was such a rewarding program for not only my clients but for me as well. Making a difference in others lives is what makes me so happy and this is a great way to give back while planning fun Weddings.

I will also be extending this into CMaries Floral business as every new contract signed I will donate $20 to a charity of their choice in their name!

Charity Means Everything Christina Marie Events is excited to unveil a Charitable Campaign for all new contracts signed in 2010. For any planning package booked this year CME will donate $100 to a Charity of the couples choice in their name! CME believes in the importance of giving where you can and this way the couple will be able to feel as if though part of their wedding
cost supports a cause that means something to them!

The trend of donating to a charity in lieu of a guest favor is on the rise with couples throwing a Wedding Celebration! This is another way that a bride and groom can feel as if though they are supporting a cause while planning their wedding. In these tough economic times it is important to give to those who are in need! Please join me in this effort!!Another neat way to incorporate Charitable giving into your wedding is to register for it! Check out Just Give that has a Wedding Registry link in the bottom left has high hopes that his campaign will be prosperous and that it will be a continued practice with our planning packages!!

Thank You for your support and we look forward to working with you!
