Graduation Parties

Graduation Parties

Class of 2018 – Congratulations! As we near the end of another school year, our young graduates deserve some time to celebrate their hard work! We love coordinating Graduation parties to transition our young adults into their college years. The weather is beautiful, summer is here, and our grads want to enjoy their freedom! Plan a cookout to easily coordinate all their friends and family! There’s so much great grad themed décor you can pick up at your local party store. Don’t be afraid to do a little DIY! Making a banner to shout out the class of 2018 is a great personal touch. Pick up some hot dogs and hamburgers and plan for a day out in the rays! We love coordinating graduation parties in local parks and other outdoor venues that facilitate grills and offer gazebos and other sources of shade. A tent rental is always a great option to choose if you have a large backyard! Thinking something more formal? Choose a venue where you can serve a meal family style. Set up a backdrop with 2018 balloons for selfies and photos that will create long-lasting memories. We suggest a personal touch like a photo canvas or other guestbook where everyone can sign yearbook style to commemorate their achievements. Be sure to “Cheers!” to 2018 and a successful journey to...
Pop-Up Weddings

Pop-Up Weddings

What is a Pop-Up Wedding? Similar to an elopement, the goal is for minimal cost and guests. This is perfect for the couple who wants a wedding but wants to save some dollars or travel for their wedding. Typically, with less than 20 guests, the goal is to just “show up” and have everything all set for the big day. A Pop-Up Wedding will ask only two things to be decided. What date/time would you like to get married? Be ready to choose your own wedding dress, rings, and write your vows. We will handle the rest. Your décor, florals, photographer, music, cake, and venue will be chosen for you. Next, you can choose add-ons such as hair and makeup, and guest favors. It’s like a build-your-own wedding without having to spend hours on Pinterest or scouring for...
Will He and I Ever See Eye to Eye on Planning Our Wedding?

Will He and I Ever See Eye to Eye on Planning Our Wedding?

Planning a wedding involves a lot of compromise. It can be especially challenging when you and your partner cannot seem to agree on anything! We like to sit down with our couples and find out exactly what makes their relationship tick. Similarities in taste and style are major green lights during this conversation! With so many small details, it’s easy to get caught up in wanting everything to go our way. How do you compromise? Find common ground in colors and themes. Giving yourselves concrete options to decide between will allow you to narrow down one choice you can both agree upon. Roses or peonies? Pink or yellow? Candles or florals? Write down the items you cannot seem to agree on and circle your first and second choices out of each category. Then switch papers and see what your partner has chosen. DJ or Band? Maybe your husband-to-be has a great suggestion you didn’t think of! The guest list can be another tricky spot where we see couples disagree. Give yourself a limit and stick to it. Go with an A and B list so you have a better perspective on who HAS to be invited and who you simply would like to include. If you have to narrow down the list, it will help to know who is a priority such as family and close friends. Remember why you are planning your wedding! This is about you BOTH! There are special things that brought you two together. Remember those little things that make you both light up and don’t sweat all the small details. That’s what your planner...
