David on his personal experience
Q. When you share your personal experience with your TV brides do they become part of your life?
A. Through the many seasons of My Fair Wedding, I have met some of the most appreciative, beautiful and kind couples that I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Although we only work together for a few weeks before the wedding, it’s an intense collaboration to get it all done, and we grow very close during that process. I keep in touch with many of the brides from the show, and in fact, Kim and Eddie (Breast Cancer Bride) were my special guests a few weeks ago at the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s Annual Cancer Ball.
Q. What advice would you give to an aspiring wedding planner?
A. The one piece of advice I have followed my whole life is to dream. I learned this from my parents when I was little and ever since then, every time a dream has come true…I dream bigger!
Q. If you had to give one piece of advice to couples, what would it be?
A. I advise my couples to remember the point of a wedding – the union of two people, two lives, two families. This bit of advice should help brides from becoming too focused on the details and the budgets, and to focus more on the love story the wedding should tell…
Q. What type of shoe would you suggest for a beach wedding?
A. I have planned many beach weddings, and sinking sand does pose a problem in terms of fashionable wedding footwear. I would actually suggest going barefoot for your walk down the aisle as any shoes will not only sink, but wobble and potentially rub sand against your skin – making them too risky!
