Marcy Blum is a world-renowned event planner, entertaining expert and owner of the acclaimed event planning company Marcy Blum Associates based in New York City.

Having orchestrated lavish functions for Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Carl Icahn, Salmon Rushdie and Padma Lakshmi, Billy Joel and Katie Lee, the Rockefeller family and Regis and Joy Philbin, Marcy Blum literally wrote the books on event planning: Wedding Planning for Dummies and Wedding Kit for Dummies. In 1986, Marcy launched her eponymous company, Marcy Blum Associates, beginning with corporate events and evolving into social events and particularly weddings.
