Sometimes people wonder why I represent particular brands--here’s the answer: I only represent brands that I am personally connected to. I’ve worn Invisalign for almost a year to adjust my bottom teeth. I wanted them to be a little straighter and I wanted to have a better smile because to me, when people smile it displays a sense of confidence. Many people don’t smile because they’re worried about their teeth which ultimately affects their energy. Invisalign is a great partnership for me because as someone who uses it and truly believes in it, I knew that it was a great opportunity to explain to brides-to-be and grooms-to-be that in the beginning stages of their wedding planning, this is something they can do to straighten their teeth and make their smile the perfect smile so that when they look back at photos from their wedding day, every photo has a smile in it because the confidence of a smile reflects the happiness in their relationship.

My Mom

I’m headed to the airport to drop my mom off--she’s heading back to the east coast. I’ve had two great weeks of spending time with her which is always a gift to me because it’s one-on-one time that I truly cherish. Dinners, seeing friends, taking walks on the beach, hanging out with my new little dog Lucy, watching TV at home, having long talks and just really getting a chance to enjoy the simple things. I always hate saying goodbye to my mom but I also know that goodbye is not really goodbye because I’ll see her in a couple weeks back in Los Angeles. I love my private time and my one-on-one time with her; I’m very spoiled by it and sometimes I don’t want to share it, so they’re great moments for me and I cannot wait until her next trip. I beg people to spend time with their families, especially their moms because when you need nurturing, support and love, it’s there for you--embrace it.

My Bridal Collection is Launching in Michaels!

I am incredibly excited that my David Tutera Bridal Collection is launching in all Michaels stores next month (March) because it includes incredible products that adds sparkle, personality and everything a bride is hoping for on her wedding day. Brides can now really can walk down the aisle with confidence, knowing that they were able to find something within their budget that makes their day that much more special. I’m very proud of the details in the line because “Do It Yourself” can sometimes become overwhelming to a bride, but these items are all wonderful add-ons that easily give your wedding personality--whether it be to your candles, printed materials, picture frames for your tables, LED branches for your flower centerpieces or even the bling that can pop into the center of a rose that can add that fairy-tale, princess, glamorous effect that you might be going for. 

Overall, it’s been a really great ride for me over the past 25 years to go from creating high-end celebrations for my brides to now be able to provide the knowledge of high-end celebrations to brides on a budget. Ultimately, the David Tutera Bridal Collection provides solutions, glamour, inspiration and affordability to every bride who truly wants to walk down the aisle in style.

Guest Blog Post: Kathy Kepler

Two years ago, I discovered my passion for wedding planning when I helped plan my daughter’s wedding. The wedding was magical and everything my daughter dreamed it would be. I loved the planning process so much that I set out to become a wedding planner at the ripe age of 52.

Last year, I submitted an essay about my journey to the “Kick Start Your Life TODAY with Marlo Thomas” series, and not long after, I found myself on the TODAY show set with David and Marlo. Since then, David has been a great mentor to me. One thing he told me that has really stuck with me is that “being a successful wedding planner comes from having a heart and investing yourself emotionally into other people’s weddings, just the way you did for your daughter.”    

Since launching my business (, I have planned two weddings. The most recent wedding I planned—a beach wedding—was a challenge because Hurricane Sandy brought tropical storm weather conditions. We had to implement plan B at the last minute, and everything turned out beautifully. It was another great learning experience and has helped build my confidence.

I have learned that it may take a while to build up my business, but I feel very lucky to have finally found a passion, even though I am now 54 years old. I’m grateful of David’s encouragement along the way, and I am not going to give up. My goal is to plan three to five weddings a year, and I will put my heart and soul into every wedding that I plan, just as if I was planning a wedding for my own daughter.
