CELEBRITY WEDDING PLANNER MINDY WEISS SHARES HER WEDDING TIPS EXCLUSIVELY ON PIPERLIME


SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2008 -- Piperlime, the fresh online shop known for offering the hottest shoe and handbag styles, as well as its exclusive fashion perspective, has partnered with Mindy Weiss, Celebrity Wedding and Event Planner, as its newest guest editor. Known for her superb sense of style and attention to detail, Mindy shares wedding tips along with shoe suggestions that will put any bride at ease on her important day.

For Piperlime, Mindy Weiss took her years of wedding knowledge to provide a fresh perspective on shoes for the special occasion. Coining the term “fantasy” and “reality” shoe, Mindy opens brides’ eyes to the idea that the perfect shoe for the ceremony may not always be the perfect shoe for the reception. She suggests every bride needs two pairs of wedding shoes — one for the dramatic walk down the aisle and one to dance the night away afterwards. 

For over 18 years, Mindy Weiss has been Hollywood’s go-to person for all major event planning, showcasing her talents at some of Hollywood’s most high-profile weddings for couples including

Heidi Klum and Seal, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, and Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. Mindy was listed in The New York Times as one of the top five wedding planners in the United States and is also releasing her new book, “The Wedding Book,” this month.
