Oh my goodness! Let me tell you about the absolute best bachlorete weekend ever. So, as girls will be girls and running a million different schedules, I wasn’t actually able to have my bachelorette party until 2 weeks before the wedding. There has just been so much going on! But to tell you the truth, I think I would rather have had it closer to the wedding day than further out because of how much fun I was able to have. I would have to admit, I have been super crazy stressed and busy and have been thinking about a million and one different things and the fact that I was able to just let everything go and not worry about one single thing, 2 weeks before the wedding – it was a blessing!
October 10th, 2015 was a big wedding day for BTS Event Management and one that would definitely not disappoint us. We had much to do and many dreams to make come true. One of the weddings that we had this day was at The Phoenician on the Orchid Lawn. It was one of a weeks worth of events for the bride and groom as they practiced their Polish traditions of several parties prior to and after the wedding day. Our main stage though, was on Saturday. The day that they walked down the aisle.
Being a wedding planner, you come across so many different vendors and so much talent. While planning my own wedding, I could think of several different local vendors to design and control my wedding stationary but luck would have it, one of my bridesmaids and best friends has the talent and edge that fits my style 100%. Besides being an Art Director of a Ad Agency in Philadelphia, Erin also is the owner/founder/designer/photographer of Grace and Ardor Co..
Ok, so today is the official 2 month mark until I will be walking down the aisle and I have so much to fill you in on. Let’s go back a month or so and talk about my registry.
When we were approached recently by Kelly from Ben and Kelly Photography to write a blog, it made most sense. She wanted us to blog about the importance of having a photo list. Now, most of you might be like, what is a photo list and so I will explain. When planning your wedding and all the details that are included, the very last thing that the Bride or Groom thinks about is what photos they want to make sure are captured and with who – isn’t that the photographers job? Well yes, but they don’t know who your great grandmother is and what Aunt Suzie or Uncle Jim look like. As wedding planners, and essentially bystanders of the entire process – we see it becoming more and more important to help with the flow of the day.
Hair and makeup trends are continually on the rise and it seems as if when one style surfaces, the next is just a day behind. We have absolutely fallen in love over the past 6 months with floral crowns, braids and loose curls as well as the natural and glamourous makeup look. As we get ready for our 2016 wedding seasons, we are fast forwarding through 2015 to check on the newest trends to come. Here is what we have found!
What is the number one most important thing to do when you start your wedding planning? One might think that it is finding your venue, selecting your bridal party, getting your photographer but no! That is far from the most important. Don’t worry – those were all things on my mind – but the main question I had to ask and figure out first and foremost – it was determining a budget!
