Who would’ve thought that the chalkboards you used in high school can now be used as a unique wedding idea? This chalkboard trend is totally genius, DIY, and we love it. You can really get artsy and have fun with this- use it as signage leading guests to the venue or even as invitations!

Planning on hosting your own 4th of July party? With average temperatures in Arizona as high as 120 degrees lately (yikes!), you’ll need some extra-cold, tasty drinks to cool down your guests this summer holiday. Whip up and drink up some of our favorite red, white and blue cocktails!
It is impossible to use all of your friends and family in planning your big day, so choose wisely when it comes to the wedding party. Each person should be trustworthy in that they will carry out this specific role as well as any other task they volunteer to take. Most of the time these roles are traditional, so why not spice it up a little and make new roles? Some ideas we put together to assign or offer to your wedding crew in planning the wedding day:
BTS Event Management had the opportunity to coordinate a Kentucky Derby party. We went in with all the traditional Derby bells and whistles: mint juleps, live music, a hat parade and benedictine sandwiches (among many other yummy dishes).
Interested in transforming your wedding into a more relaxed, casual ambiance with unique and comfortable seating? Lounge style seating will make your special day trendy with an arrangement of sleek options to choose from. Wow your guests with a wedding reception or cocktail area that goes beyond the typical 60″ round table with chairs around them. Choose from pieces such as: couches, ottomans, benches/banquettes, chaises, daybeds, coffee tables, and end tables.
With your wedding approaching rapidly it is time to start to focusing on the little details that are crucial to your look. One of those details is your hairstyle! The more you know what you want, the more relaxed you will be on your big day. We always recommend doing a trial run with your stylist about 2-3 months before the wedding to make sure the style you want works with your hair. With so many different styles and up-dos to choose from, it can get a little overwhelming. Below are three categories of bridal hairstyles we love! This will help you narrow down your options and pick the best style for you:
One of the first events we planned this year was a University of Michigan Alumni dinner. We had a blast planning and preparing for this event. Many alumni flew from all over the country to partake in this amazing dinner that happens once a year. Most of the attendees played softball or baseball throughout college, and some of theme were even fortunate enough to make a career out of their talents. The event was held at the beautiful Phoenician resort in Scottsdale, AZ. The amazing food and great music had a southwestern flare. There was a taco bar with just about every type of taco filling and topping you could imagine. One of the best parts was the freshly made churros. Guests mingled, listed to music and honored some of their admirable coaches. We, at BTS Event Management, were honored to be a part of such an amazing event! Thanks for the opportunity:) Here are some more pictures:
BTS Event Management was so fortunate to plan the New Years Eve party of the decade! We created a party favor table filled with new years eve props arranged creatively, which was a huge hit with the guests. The table consisted of party poppers, hats, glasses, mustaches, new years resolution cards, and an digital countdown to midnight.
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!
