StudioWed Asheville :: Staffing For Your Asheville Wedding

Asheville Weddings, Asheville Vendors, Asheville Vendor, Asheville Wedding Vendors, Asheville Wedding

When it comes to your wedding you will be blown away by the amount of things “to do” that you probably didn’t even think about.  Asheville NC is known for their mountain views, beautiful weather, and gorgeous venues.  Which is why so many of our StudioWed couples like to have their wedding outside.  Which means tents, heaters, portable kitchens, and so much more.  What many don’t think about… is what about the staffing? Who is going to serve the drinks, serve the guest, and clean up.  This is where Blue Ridge Event Staffing comes in.  They are truly the only game in town and are SO good at what they do, and they can do almost anything.

A raving review from one of their many clients!

“Kai and Blue Ridge Event Staffing did an outstanding job at my wedding. The bartenders that served at my wedding were professional and provided quick service to our guests! Kai was very easy to work with and he always responded to emails/phone calls quickly! I highly recommend using their services for your next event!”

Marriage Monday :: Soften Your Startup…

Relationship tips to keep your marriage humming!

Asheville Weddings, Asheville Vendors, Asheville Vendor, Asheville Wedding Vendors, Asheville Wedding

Soften your startup. . .

When you have a problem in your relationship, whether big or small, avoid confronting your partner with criticism or contempt. A harsh startup usually results in defensiveness and distancing.

Research shows that discussions usually end on the same note they begin, so if you bring up the issue calmly, your partner will be more receptive and willing to work with you to find a solution.
