Something Blue featured on The Daily Meal

Last week, we were featured on The Daily Meal in “50 Planners, 50 States”. In the article, they identify one event planner from each state. Here is what they wrote about the event planners selected for the list:

“We’ve looked to the some of the most popular wedding and event blogs around town (100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty,, Rue, Ruffled, and more) and searched city by city to see who’s making heads turn with their professional flair and knack for soirée success. 

From Alabama’s Christopher Confero Design to Wyoming’s Bella Design and Planning — and every state in between — we’ve found the best of the best.”

We feel honored to be identified with so many other fabulously talented event planners from across the country! Here is what they wrote specifically about Something Blue:

“Something Blue was built on the idea that a truly successful event is a result of teamwork, which is why this firm has a tight-knit connection of vendors and planners. By using these resources and working in the customized needs of each client, they make sure each event a memorable one.”
