Philadelphia Themed Bar Mitzvah

Choosing your favorite place to visit or a place that is close to your heart is a great theme for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Our Bar Mitzvah boy has a special place in his heart for Philadelphia, so Linzi Events took all of the things that give meaning to the famous city and brought them to his celebration. Together with JM Event Productions,  we designed the décor to incorporate elements of the grand history of Philadelphia. Of course we had to complete the party with an infamous Philly Cheesesteak stand!

Real Weddings, A Palm Beach Wedding

After receiving such a large response to our Unique Wedding Locations blog post and getting many requests to hear more about weddings that we have planned at the Flagler Museum, we wanted to give everyone a closer look at one of the fabulous weddings that took place there.

From the ceremony to the reception, this wedding was absolutely breathtaking. Surrounded by beautiful architecture, exceptional food, and lively entertainment, the bride, groom and their guests were able to dance the night away in one of the most majestic settings on Palm Beach Island.

Run for a Mitzvah – Tzvika’s 5 km Run

The highlight of Mitzvah planning for 2015 was Tzvika’s 5 km run held at Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach which was planned for Tzvika’s Mitzvah project.  Our first steps were to select a venue that had a 5km trail and obtain the necessary permits to hold the event.   We contracted with Accuchip Race timing services who provided state of the art timing services for our runners.We designed a custom logo  for the event which was printed on t shirts , signage and water bottles. Linzi Events provided all mile markers and water stations as well as event coordination and management.  All our runners were treated to a well deserved  Icee after a long run on a  very hot summer day.

Dear Family and Friends,

B’Ezras Hashem this summer I will become a Bar Mitzvah. My parents want this to be a meaningful experience for me so they asked me to create a fundraiser in honor of my Bar Mitzvah. Running has always been something that I love to do, I decided to create a 5k run to raise money for colon cancer research. I’m named after my grandfather, “Saba Tzvika,” who died from colon cancer before I was able to meet him. I would love to help others avoid such a loss. It would be an honor if you could help me with this, my first mitzvah project.

To qualify for the run I ask that you raise a minimum (there is no maximum!) of $36 for adults and $18 for kids in sponsorships. Of course donations are welcome from those who cannot make the run. In Pirkei Avot, it says that one should run to do a mitzvah because one mitzvah leads to another mitzvah. I hope that the starting line of this race is just the beginning of many mitzvahs for all of us.

Sincerely,

Tzvika

So You’re Engaged, Now What?

Congratulations on your recent engagement!

You are  so elated, and want to tell everyone about the exciting news and get started on planning your big day!

But who do you tell  first and what are your next steps?!

1. Of course, first on your call list should be your relatives and then your closest of friends.

It’s important to personally tell people that are closest to you about your engagement before making your big announcement on social media.

2. Get your ring sized and most importantly added to your insurance. Having your ring insured will put your mind at peace.

3. Set a window of time that you would like your wedding to take place. For Florida Brides, high season is from November until April. If you are considering a Florida wedding, be aware that prices are considerably higher during this period of time.

4. Set your budget. This may be a delicate situation but if you have it set from the start, it will make for a much easier and stress free process

5. Organize your guest count. Your guest count determines your budget as well as the size of the venue space you can select.

6. Now, its time to get a wedding planner. At this point it is important to secure your key vendors such as your venue, photographer, videographer entertainment, and florist. An event planner will help you to stay in your budget, advise you on tried and tested professional vendors within your budget, negotiate all of your contracts, and most importantly, allow you to be a guest at your own wedding on your special day.

7. Think about where you want to get married. Do you want a local venue or a destination wedding? Be sure to select your venue based on your personality and your vision for your special day. Check out our blog on unique wedding venues some ideas!

8. Start a pintrest or vision board for your wedding so you can share your ideas when it comes time to select details such as flowers, invitations, your dress and a color palette for your bridal party.
