Before we get hot and heavy into the wedding season, I wanted to mix things up a bit a share an awesome party that we recently did. Over the summer we were so lucky to be able to throw a 40th birthday party for one of our elite clients. Inspired by Miami’s night life, we were really able to put our creative party side to good use.
The photo above is a beautiful first dance captured by Mike Olbinski Photography of one of our very own couples who’s wedding we coordinated this past June. Take a peep at the album on BTS Event Management’s Facebook page!
First dances are always special, but sometimes it’s hard to select the right song to capture the moment. “Part 3 Picking Your Song” is the third addition for picking the perfect song for your first dance. We post 5 great love songs every month that will make you swoon and decide!
Happy Monday! To kick start this week off, I am going to do a quick intro into BTS’s newest team member, me! Yes, you heard it right, today is my very first blog for BTS and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!
Exchanging wedding rings is probably one of the most significant wedding traditions. However, wedding traditions have evolved a lot over the years and deciding what tradition to follow can be quite difficult!
BTS Event Management had the opportunity to coordinate a fabulous Sip & See Shower for a very precious newborn baby girl last Saturday. The Chanel perfume bottle was the main inspiration for this black and white themed party and since the little one is Mommy’s third blessing, it was only fitting to go with No. 3 on all the décor. We teamed up with Paper Eskimo for all the paper party products and SN Consulting for all the artwork design and it turned out amazing. Here are some pictures of the wonderful afternoon.
Have you chosen a song for your first dance yet? Most brides have trouble with this, as there are tons of great songs that you could choose! We’re here to the rescue. Once a month we will post five songs that could all make for your perfect dance. Below are five songs in different genres ranging from country to pop — there’s a little something for everyone.
Traditionally, the bride’s parents (although anyone can host) will throw an engagement party for their daughter and her husband-to-be, for the intention of welcoming him and introducing friends and extended family to the groom and his family and friends. Although this isn’t required, it can be a great way to get future wedding guests together to establish a rapport before the event — familiar faces always make for a more convivial affair.
The Rehearsal Dinner
Both the groom’s parents traditionally organize (and pay for) the rehearsal dinner. This can range in size from a small occasion for members of the wedding party only to a grand soiree (never to outdo the wedding, of course) that includes half or more of the wedding guests. But they should never be expected to pay for a larger event than they are comfortable with.
Traditional Roles for the Bride and Her FamilyThe bride and her family are responsible for all planning expenses, the bride’s attire, all floral arrangements, transportation on the wedding day, photo and video fees, travel and lodgings for the officiant if he/she comes from out of town, lodging for the bridesmaids, and all the expenses of the reception. The bride personally pays for the flowers and gifts for her attendants, the groom’s ring, and a present for him.
Traditional Roles for the Groom and His FamilyThe groom’s family is responsible for corsages and boutonnieres for immediate members of both families, the lodging of the groom’s attendants, and sometimes the costs of the rehearsal dinner. The groom is traditionally expected to pay for the marriage license and officiant’s fees, and buy the bouquet for his bride, as well as her engagement and wedding rings and a gift; he should also purchase gifts and boutonnieres for his attendants. The honeymoon expenses are classically his, as the head of his new household.

BTS coordinated a fabulous wedding in February at DC Ranch in Scottsdale that was not only elegant and classy, but it was unique from other weddings we have coordinated in one special way: it was all about the groom! A whole area was dedicated to the groom and his groomsmen with select brandies, cigars, and candies. The groom is a huge basketball fan and even got a life-size basketball ball cake! Thanks to our friends over at Image Industry they got to capture these great photos of this groom’s spotlight.

BTS Event Management coordinated a wedding at The Phoenician Resort late last year that turned out more beautifully than expected. The very talented Kyle Smith with Amore Films filmed the bride and groom preparing for the wedding up until the reception ends. The film revealed a much more important, overlooked feature about a wedding: getting ready for the big day.
