Happy Engagement Season!
While flowers in the center of the table are always a favorite and traditional option for most, sometimes you need to think outside the box - or vase in this case. Perhaps your budget is too small to purchase personal bouquets and centerpieces. Or perhaps the flowers you’ve requested are not available in your wedding colors. While meeting with your wedding planner, discuss various centerpiece options. I’ve had many couples that have opted out of live flowers for their centerpieces and used an alternative such as lanterns and candles. Let’s dig deep into the creativity realm of wedding planning to find the centerpiece that matches your theme, venue style, and budget!
While going through all of the wedding planning details, make sure you don’t forget about the way you will end the best night of your life! As a bride or groom, the most dreaded moment of the evening is when the DJ announces the end of the reception. So, when your wedding planner approaches you, knowing there is a vehicle there for your send-off is very important. Don’t worry, there is no need to panic! Below is a list of the most popular wedding get-away cars and how to ensure they are ready for you when the final song is played.
As a wedding planner, I have become a huge fan of Kleenex. Throughout each wedding, I gain a bond between each of my couples. Once the bridal party has made their way down the aisle, and it is just me, the bride, and her father waiting anxiously for the song change, I see the excitement fill her eyes. While keeping the makeup put, I dab her glowing smile and I send her off down the aisle. While standing in the back, I always have to catch a glimpse of the groom’s face. Oh my, that moment that he sees his bride gets the entire congregation captured in their moment of happily ever after.
An After-Reception Party – Should I have one?
There is nothing worse than the feeling at the end of the night when your wedding planner tells you that your luggage is packed for your honeymoon and your last song is about to be played. The party that you spent the past year and half spending countless hours planning every last detail is coming to a close and you barely feel like you have taken one breath! So, the question that every couple is asking us – Should I have an after party?
