APRIL / MAY 2011 From floral arrangements to full-service event production. Ariel Yve Design plans your wedding from head to toe. A distinguished Santa Barbara-based designer for more than 10 years. Yve provides services worldwide and has been featured on television shows such as WE's Platinum Weddings and Get Married on Lifetime. From full conceptualization to day-of coordination for gatherings of all sizes, Yve has done it all. One tip for lowering costs: "Trim the guest list," she says. "It's nice to keep your wedding intimate enough to feel like a fabulous dinner party."

When it comes to incorporating the latest trends to make your day spectacular, Zohe Felici of Felici Events is your go-to gal. With a meticulous eye for detail this knowledgeable wedding planner predicts darker, sultrier accents for weddings this year: "Soft colors such as pale pinks, ivory, and pearl paired with black, and nighttime ceremonies decorated with flickering candelabras, candles, ambient light and sparkle–rerminiscent of Black Swan."
