The order in which you hire your wedding vendors is crucial! There many different charts, blogs, and timelines available to help you with this process but you may notice each will very a bit. We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what WE recommend as professional and experienced wedding planners.
By now we have all seen the video by the brilliant person who decided to attach a GoPro to a bottle of Fireball and pass it around their wedding. It’s fun, it’s different, it’s perfect! In a world full of selfie sticks and hashtags, incorporating technology into weddings in some way or another has become a necessity. It’s easy to do and the results are incredible!
Here’s a few ways that we here at BTS love!
Early last week, BizBash, a pioneer company in our event industry, released a super informative blog which was titled 25 Event Pros You Should Be Following on Instagram. Just like the title says, they listed their opinion for the 25 most influential Instagram accounts in the event industry. As wedding planners, we were so excited to read more. We thought this was so informative and decided we wanted to share our very own list of Instagram inspirations with all of you 🙂 These are the masterminds behind some really trend setting and unique work that we look forward to seeing every day!
Recently, we were invited to be a preferred vendor at the Musical Instrument Museum, Phoenix, AZ. This is a huge honor being as we were 1 of only 2 planners who were hand picked by this elite venue to be apart of their weddings and events. The MIM hosted an open house for newly engaged couples who are on the hunt for the perfect venue. BTS, alongside many other talented vendors, set up areas to show off their skills. There were tons of happy couples who came through to check out a fun night filled with live music, good food and cold beverages.
Very recently, as some of you may know, I just got engaged. As a wedding planner, I thought it would be fun to take you, all of our followers through my journey as I plan my own wedding. So stay connected as I share the details to planning my very own wedding!
“You can’t measure love, nor can you adequately describe it to another person. Perhaps more than any other emotion, you know it when you feel it.”
I recently found a book while browsing through Anthropologie one day titled, LOVE Quotes and Passages from the heart, edited by B.C. Aronson andjust had to pick it up. Instantly, I thought of one of my favorite movies/series, Sex in the City. I flashed back to that moment when Carrie and Big are laying together in bed and she pulls out her library book to begin reading love passages from great authors. What I then thought about was the moment right before the I do’s, when Big called Carrie because he couldn’t think of the right words for his vows and how it ultimately all ties together.
Planning your wedding is a task that should not be done solely by you- the bride- of course, because there will always be family and friends by your side helping you make decisions. Let’s say your hubby’s mother is also offering to help you out with the planning, but she is being extra pushy and opinionated (monster-in-law?). What should you do when this dilemma occurs?
Arizona may not be the coldest state in the winter but it does get rather chilly. If you’re one of the lucky brides planning to have your wedding during these next few cold months, there a ton of themes you could go with to match the season. Winter weddings can be beautiful and right in the middle of the holidays so there are a ton of beautiful elements to incorporate.
Placing a suspended chandelier in your wedding will add that “wow” factor you may be searching for. Whether you place them indoor or outdoor, the space that you choose to use them will make a considerable difference in the setting.
For example, the outdoor ceremony has become a popular choice, so brides who want to dress up the space turn to chandeliers. They can be suspended from trees or from the middle floral-created alters provided by the floral designer. If there aren’t trees in the outdoor space, your lighting designer can find alternative ways to suspend the chandelier to complete your vision.
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!
