Who To Select (And NOT Select!) For Your Wedding Tribe!

Who To Select (And NOT Select!) For Your Wedding Tribe!

Your bride tribe. Your best friends. The people you want surrounded by you when you say, “I do”! Choosing your wedding party is usually the first and most important task after getting engaged. You need a solid team who will be able to celebrate, comfort, and help with some of the bridal stress. Don’t Select Flakey Friends Trust us on this one. Once a flakey friend, always.  You know who we’re talking about, the friends who cancel last minute. The one who always has an excuse when it comes to making plans. The friend who has a busy job or family obligations that make their schedule unpredictable. Don’t select a friend who will not be able to attend your major events like the bridal shower and bachelorette. Of course, make sure they get an invitation to the wedding, but leave the responsibilities to more reliable friends! Do Ask Your Sister-In-Law Extending the invitation to a future sister-in-law is always a great way to form a bonding relationship. She will be a great point of reference for any questions when it comes to family. Your future sister-in-law will also know exactly how to entertain any family members and fill you in on names and back stories.     Don’t Choose Your High School Best Friend Unless you’re still super close! Often, high school best friends move or drift apart. While the bond is still there, choosing your childhood best friend if you’re not actively involved in one another’s lives isn’t the best plan. They may not have a big involvement in your relationship or been there for the steps to...
Eating, Exercise & Meditation

Eating, Exercise & Meditation

Taking care of yourselves during the Summer is so important. With the heat, harsh rays, and many events and activities, we are exposed to the outdoors more than usual! Days are longer which means we are out and about for more hours of the day. To give ourselves some TLC we stick to a regimen of eating well, exercising, and meditating. Eating Eating right is about customizing a meal plan that works for you. Having plenty of nutritious options in the house are the right start to making sure you are eating well. Try to prepare your meals ahead of time so you can grab and go the essentials. Have an abundant fruit bowl at all times to curb our sweet tooth. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Having balanced meals throughout the day will give you the most energy and prevent an afternoon crash. Always have small snacks to avoid fast-food and stops at convenience stores where the options are not always the best. Exercise Your workout should reflect your lifestyle. Even if you don’t have time to attend a formal gym, make sure you stay stretched and active will aid in your overall energy. Making sure you are active can be as easy as parking further away at the store, so you get some extra steps in. Choose the stairs rather than the elevator. Especially as the weather becomes breezy and cooler at night, a brisk walk around the block will energize you! Meditation We like to meditate for at least ten minutes a day. Early in the morning before any chaos can cloud our mind,...
Planning A Big Wedding (Or Event!) On A Small Budget

Planning A Big Wedding (Or Event!) On A Small Budget

As event planners, we talk a lot about budget. It’s the foundation of your entire event. Knowing how much to spend and how to create a vision on a certain budget can of course be challenging. Planning a big wedding or event while sticking to a smaller budget can be extra challenging. Booking quality vendors and achieving a beautiful aesthetic can be done, it’s all about how you approach it! Start with the Vendors Booking quality vendors for your wedding or event are priority. There is always room to save in other areas, when it comes to a reliable and professional vendor we encourage stretching the budget in those areas. That’s not to say a cheaper price tag does not mean quality, but often in the industry you get what you pay for. For example, on your wedding day you should look for a photographer that brings a second shooter for the best photos. Your caterer should include a team of staff. Always ask what is included in the price. You may be able to get more bang for your buck with a certain vendor so always know what their package includes! The Details Can Be Duped!  We hate to break it to you, but your dream Pinterest table setting costs A LOT. Just one table on some of the Pinterest boards can be thousands of dollars. Now multiply by how many tables you need to seat all your guests. However, these photos are wonderful inspiration to find less expensive versions of the look you want for your event or wedding. Having a wedding planner to locate rental companies...
