Joie & Colin’s Wedding at NeXT Kanata

December 23, 2015 / no comments

A long over due post about an amazing wedding we planned and executed back in June. I LOVED THIS WEDDING. Everything about this wedding was fabolous, laid back, beautiful  and heart warming just like the amazing couple, Joie & Colin!

From the beginning Joie wanted to incorporate colours and themes from St. Vincent where she is originally from. To keep it elegant, we used white, yellow and teal. Using feathers was also a big part of the theme.

Colin & Joie chose to host their wedding at NeXT in Kanata known for its amazing food and service. They chose to work with our “Wedding in a Box package” to bring their wedding to life. Mitch Lenet Weddings who is also part of our wedding in a box package was on site to capture all the special moments.

5 Reasons to hire a day-of wedding coordinator

December 12, 2015 / no comments

A day-of- wedding coordinator is considered as “a nice to have” option for most couples only if there is left over budget. A wedding coordinator should instead be considered has “a must have’ on your list when planning for your day. Top 5 reasons why we think you should invest on this.


Did you ask your cousin and her friends to help set up or decorate your tables? Did they volunteer to help if needed? They are your friends and family. Yes they want to help as much as possible. The bottom line is that they are there to enjoy and celebrate your day with everyone else. Wedding Coordination on the day is much more than setting up a table or the ceremony. It’s ensuring your vendors know what to do, where to set up, what time things are happening, trouble shooting and moving things around if things are running late. Hiring a wedding planner will ensure that all your to-dos are covered, allowing your family and friends to enjoy the day.


Without a wedding coordinator you will get interruptions from vendors – DJs, MC, Venue managers etc.  asking you several questions. Believe us when we say they have asked us questions through out the day. This is needed to ensure there no issues on the day. Let a wedding coordinator be the the trouble shooter and the in between go to person. We do have a detailed wedding itinerary that we use to ensure we are one step ahead.


A wedding planner will design a detailed event time line to ensure your day is smooth. The time line will have a line by line detailed list about what is coming next, what to expect and when to expect things to happen. This detailed wedding itinerary will allow your planner to make sure you don’t miss any special moments. We will also ensure special people, such as your parents do not miss anything.


Do you have a wedding decorator? Are you DIYing your decor, do you need a stylist to ensure it looks great. An event planner or stylist will ensure that your vision is brought to life just as you had imagined it. Let a professional handle this.


From developing a detailed time line, to vendor confirmations, decor set up and the overall management of the day details, a planner will ensure that every detail is taken care of and that everything runs smoothly. The less things that go wrong on the day, the better experience you and your guests will have.

Planning a Chic Corporate Gala

December 7, 2015 / no comments

Are you a Corporate company in Ottawa looking to host a Gala? Are you planning a fundraising gala event? We will be outlining our top 6 amazing ways to plan a chic corporate gala! At RSVP Events, we are known to keep with current times and styles. Elegance, chic and modern is what we aim to work with in order to give you a more elite event. This approach will attract a bigger, more elite clientele  and makes any event more profitable every year for years to come!

Planning a successful gala requires commitment, resources and a team of knowledgeable individuals who can pull it off.  You want the event to be successful in every sense and that means doing it right the first time. If you are a Charity Corporation or a Not-for-Profit, you normally rely on annual galas for essential cash flow, donations and above all raising awareness for the cause.

Follow these amazing steps to plan your next chic and successful Gala with style.

SAVE THE DATE Pick your date as early as possible. Keep in mind that thousands of businesses plan events every year.  You do not want other event overshadowing your event. You must also ensure that the date does not conflict with other religious holidays, large city events such as a hockey games or other competing galas. You will be fighting for sponsors and ticket sales.

VENUE Remember we are throwing a chic event. Pick a venue that will reflect this style.  We are looking for a modern, unique and chic venue. Ottawa has a few of these venues.  If you are interested in Hotels, think Le Chateau Laurier, Brookstreet Hotel, Ottawa Marriott and the Hilton Lac Leamy! Museums are also a great location for corporate events- Museum of Nature and The Museum of History or the War Museum will certainly wow your guests.  Ottawa does have a lot of beautiful venues. Find the right venue with RSVP Events. 

EVENT GOALS What are you hoping to achieve with your event? How many guests are you hoping will attend the event? What are your revenue streams during the event? Are you hosting a silent and live Auction? Your goals will help shape and direct where the event is heading. Your event planner can help you achieve this.

STAND OUT Determine what you can use to stand out. What will attract clients to your event? This can be achieved by having a celebrity speak out at your event, maybe wowing all your guests with amazing entertainment, maybe a celebrity chef? You will know what will stand by understanding your target market.

Guests speaker for your gala

BE DIFFERENT Donating money to a cause or charity looks good for any company. Every other company is doing exactly that. What will make your event stand out? Offer something different that others are not doing. Perhaps offering culture foods and elements for your guests? Corporate planning with RSVP Events

HIRE AN EVENT PLANNER/ DESIGNER Companies often underestimate the time and efforts it takes to pull to plan an events especially a successful  gala. Most companies expects an internal employee to plan the event and this employee may already have a huge work load to balance. In order to get the best results, invest in a professional team of planners and designers and take the stress off of your staff. When the day finally comes, your planner will have the décor and production covered, while your staff can enjoy the night and schmooze and migle with donors.

GUESTS Ensure your guests are having a great time. Provide great entertainment to keep them entertained through out the event. Ideally you want the guests to stay until the very end. Have live performances, photobooths, live music or some great ways for interactions.

4 Things not to DIY for your wedding

November 25, 2015 / no comments

Planning a wedding is definitely very exciting for any newly engaged bride. It can also become extremely stressful very quickly,  especially if you are thinking of planning 90% of it on your own. One wedding trend that seems to be here to stay is the rustic wedding. To save on costs, brides are attempting DIY projects.  It seems like everyone is DIY-ing these days. Whether you’re planning of doing a DIY project because you are crafty or trying to save money they are a few things you should not DIY.

We are going to give you a few tips especially if you plan to DIY: To start, pinpoint all your wedding ideas & have a planned wedding budget! Once this is decided, decide what you will DIY and what should be left to a professional wedding specialist.  We do not recommend DIY-ing the following things.

Wedding Photography:

Bride and Groom: My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend is a photographer! Me: A professional photographer or taking it up as a hobby? Sound familiar? Some of the advantages of hiring a professional  is that they wont know anyone a the event and there is little chance of them mingling and socialising, which could potentially have them not capture an important moment (Speeches, reactions). They would also have all the proper equipment required to shoot a wedding such as lighting and all the different cool lenses. Your wedding photos will be something you treasure for years to come, I am sure you have heard that before! I would suggest spending some money to ensure you get what will be the best thing that you will ever spend your money on!

Wedding Food: Are you considering asking friends or even your family members to make all your favourite dishes? They maybe great at what they do, but catering to a wedding is a huge job on its own. Even if they are able to cater to your entire wedding party, they would need to have all 80 or a 100 plates ready at the same time at the right time. This is hard to do! People love to talk about how great food is, but they will also be the first to talk about bad food. Consider leaving this task to a caterer. You don’t guests referring to your wedding as “the wedding that had horrible food, I went home and ordered pizza!” So true!

Wedding DJ/Music:

Using an Ipod to play your wedding music is never a good idea. We can tell you about all our horror stories but we wont. Hire a professional DJ or band for your peace of mind. They will also make basic announcements through out the wedding about important milestones coming up through out the day. Guests might also want to make requests during the reception and a DJ or a band would know when to play it and if it is appropriate.

Wedding planner: Yes you have friends that can assist on the day (go back to point 1. about hiring friends or family members). You can choose to hire a planner for the duration of the wedding planning process or someone just on the day. This will make a huge difference between making your wedding feel like it was truly handmade vs. well put together and organized. A professional planner will ensure you a stress free day and ensure all your DIY items work with your theme.
