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...
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...
When You’re Not Longer Interested In Planning For Your Wedding Day

When You’re Not Longer Interested In Planning For Your Wedding Day

Planning your wedding can be an overwhelming task. If you have already invested a lot of time and decided you simply do not want to plan your wedding day, we have your solution! When you are no longer interested in planning your big day, seek out a wedding planner to organize what you already have put together. Events By Deb can step in at any stage. Just Started? We are often contacted by clients who have begun the process of booking vendors but realized wedding planning was just not for them. Maybe you are over-extending your free time and want to claim your nights and weekends back. The need to keep up with emails from vendors and make sure everyone is on the same page can turn one task into five tasks very quickly. Often, we find we tackle one item on our to-do list and it reveals several more things we didn’t think of! That’s okay! If you have a start already, we can take a look at what you have and go from there. The most important part about this stage is that you have defined a direction. You have an idea about what you want (even if you don’t!) and have a couple of pieces done we can then solidify and work with. If there are some aspects you are excited about such as choosing the décor, we can make sure you have a larger involvement in what you are interested in. In Too Deep? Did you get a lot of your wedding planned and then just hit a brick wall? If you feel like you...
