Dash for diamonds? Yes, please!
For a chance at love, Evansville couples use mobile gaming technology. Locals search for a diamond engagement ring using their cell phones.
The event is a high-tech scavenger hunt in which participants will be following clues sent to their cell phones, looking to win a $12,000 diamond engagement ring. The hunt promises to be a fun and fast paced adventure around downtown Evansville and a great activity for locals and tourists alike. We expect several hundred local couples will participate.
What: Approx 500 people will meet at Casino Aztar at 11am and run all over downtown Evansville solving clues sent via text message to their cell phones. They will race for about 2 hours, hoping to win the grand prize. The event will end at back at Casino Aztar where the after party will take place from 2pm-3:30pm. The winning team will be announced there.
Who: The event is being hosted by Kruckemeyer & Cohn Jewelers

planning…forever events is not affiliated with this event, but wanted to let local Evansville brides and grooms know about it. Good luck and happy hunting.
Suggestion: with all that money saved with winning the diamonds, now you can afford a wedding planner. *hint* *hint*
Look how much fun they had in Chi-town with a similar event:

This afternoon I had the pleasure of having lunch with Amanda Monarch Woods (previous bride), her fabulous mother, Rachel Monarch and the soon-to-be-wed sister, Amy Monarch.
I have to tell you, I triple heart the Monarch family. What is not to love? They are Type A personalities (check), lots of fun (check), very direct and blunt (check) and always want to throw a great party (check!).
Amanda politely asked me, “What’s up with the blog?” Seriously, thank you for the gentle reminder, as I have been quite delinquent. As our team has grown this year, I’m hoping to have more blog posts done by not just “my voice”.
Now Amanda and Brian are no strangers to our blog, you see when you have a super cool personality, you get talked about. Like when they decided to meet before the wedding, we used their pretty faces, or when we talked about being a “wedding risk taker“, and finally, my personal fave….. how to make a grand entrance into your wedding reception, OH YES!
Today, though, also just happens to be Amanda and Brian’s 2nd wedding anniversary. And for that reason, I’d like to play a little homage to their wedding and see if we can get Amanda to cook more than just spaghetti for her anniversary dinner…
The Stylish Planner is the brain child of Jeannine Kennedy whom I met at a conference (Eventology 09) in April of this year. I didn’t get to speak with her a lot but I remember sitting behind her during one of the sessions.
I did the total “girl thing” and looked at her up and down. I remember thinking, “She is so stylish and cute…a little southern lady”.
So when Jeannine decided to start a website that was geared for professional event planners about their personal style, fashion and beauty … I wasn’t surprised at all. I was however SHOCKED when she called me and asked if I would like to be a featured planner.
Me? For real? Surprisingly, she was not kidding. For pete’s sake, I had to follow Kelly McWilliams the cutest little planner on earth.
So here’s my feature if you would like to get to know a little more about me. And thanks Jeannine for the honor!Read More »

This was just announced this morning that the publishers Condé Nast will be closing several magazines that include, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride, among others. We’ve enjoyed those magazines for years, as I’m sure many of you have as well.
Our hearts go out to the employees that will be directly affected by this reduction.Read More »
