“High-tech receptions” is another trend for the 2014 bride that we found surprisingly interesting. You don’t really think about how much technology can play a huge part in your wedding- the cameras photographers use, the equipment the DJ uses, the IPAD screen that displays photos of the wedding, etc.
If you’re a bride on a budget, a DIY wedding could very well be a smart route to take. A complete DIY wedding could be authentic by adding a delightful, homemade touch. But it would be advised to take into consideration the time and complexity that will require. Most brides will use select elements of their wedding to DIY, however some elements are better off just being purchased or planned by a wedding planner. When choosing the wrong do-it-yourself project, you could potentially lose money in the long run to repair the damage from trying to plan for a bargain. Here are some pros and cons to consider:
I’m sure mom would love for you to rock her vintage gown overflowing with ruffles and layers on your big day, but let’s be honest- wearing a gown from the 70’s or 80’s may alert the fashion police. With styles and trends constantly changing, there are new, fresh options to choose from but molding a piece of your mother’s gown into yours is something to cherish. There are definitely ways to incorporate it somehow, whether it be in the gown, garter, or even the ring pillow.
New colors we love seeing together for weddings are gray and yellow! We have seen this color scheme for a little while now, but it hasn’t been one of the top picks. Lately we have been seeing it more and more. We think this is going to continue to grow in popularity because it is fitting for every season. Depending on the shades of these colors, this scheme can alternate between cool and warm colors. Tell us what you think!

I recently had the pleasure of planning and coordinating a Toy Story themed birthday party for a little boy who was turning 2. The party was full of vibrant colors and fun elements of entertainment. I would love to share with you some of the photos that were taken by Harley Bonham, who is an amazing photographer.
This September, BTS Event Management, along with a few other amazing event industry professionals organized an awesome event for WEN. WEN is a wedding networking group that meets once a month and allows people in the wedding and event industry to get to know one another on a more personal level and build relationships. This is important because it takes a large team of talented people to create the wedding of your dreams, so knowing each other’s strengths and talents allows us to collaborate on the highest level. When we designed the event, we wanted to go with a fall theme. In Arizona, the heat doesn’t allow for a whole lot of weddings or events to take place in the summer, but once it starts to cool off, our season begins and we are working at full speed. The WEN event was hosted at the beautiful Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center. We titled the event, Fall Back into the Season. I would like to share some pictures of this evening:)
