Preston Bailey! The Ultimate WOW factor with his Creations!

25 Nov

I know you watch TV and see many bridal shows where weddings are transformed into events not seem imaginable by the bride and groom.  However, this is nothing new!

You cannot even utter wedding event planner, without thinking of Preston Bailey!   He has been the go-to person for years!

I remember being introduced to him years ago while in New York’s flower district.  He explained and gave me the pointers on flowers and how they can transform a room.

He also provided me information on the flower industry, where Holland and Switzerland are the countries where most of the  flowers are grown, however if a hybrid is not quite right, it auctioned and brought, ending up in New York City’s flower district; at a reduced price!

I had no idea at the time; that he was one of the most sort out event planner!  To me, he was a person who I met, who had the mo st wonderful smile and took the time to give me some advice!

Bailey moved to New York from Panama in 1969 at age 19 to start a modeling career.  He got into event planning through Wolfe, who suggested that Bailey do floral arrangements for his clients.  One of Bailey’s first celebrity clients was Joan Rivers. (In 1998, Bailey did a “winter wonderland-themed” wedding for Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, and his transformation into event-planning superstar had begun.)

Today, Preston is now also much sought after both as a television guest and public speaker. His many national television appearances include The Oprah Winfrey Show, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Extra, CBS’s The Early Show, and NBC’s Today Show.  He regularly appears in dozens of publications including Town & Country, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle Décor, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and New York Post.

Recently, while reviewing my Munaluchi Bride magazine, there Preston was!  He was working with the magazine exclusively for this one of kind wedding gown he designed! The gown was made of fresh orchids flown in from Taiwan; which has never been done before!

If you unfamiliar with the magazine, it is a stylish and chic print publication released twice a year in major bookstores across the US and internationally, and digitally via their website http://www.munaluchibride.com.

In between their issues, their website provides modern style-savvy brides with daily inspiration ranging from gorgeous real weddings, creative e-sessions, and all kinds of wedding goodness!!!

Now back to Preston! Now if you are getting married and do not have an event planner; but looking for ideas?  Review Preston Bailey’s website, there are many ideas which you can consider in incorporating into your own wedding, as well ideas for any party.  Please log on to Preston Bailey’s website to get just that!

He is a master of using flowers;  making you imagine that it’s possible!

Possible to look at any object and turn it into a floral sculpture, no matter how big or small!

You will find yourself saying “Wow” quite often!
