{Friday Find} Skimping on The Rest

PRIORITIES, PRIORITIES

RANK YOUR PRIORITIES

First and foremost, decide what facets of your wedding are most important to you.  Focus on areas that make your heart go pitter-patter, and you’ll feel OK about skimping on the rest.

As for what guests tend to remember, according to a survey conducted by St. Louis Bride and Groom magazine, 81 percent of guests say the entertainment is the most memorable part of a wedding.

A Winter White Wonderland Wedding

Abby spent many family vacations in Beaver Creek, Colorado, and always knew that she would get married there some day. But even though she and her future husband, Cliff, had dated since high school in Mobile, Alabama, she didn’t initially peg him as the groom. Four years of long distance on-again, off-again later, they got serious. She moved back to Cliff in Mobile, and a year and a half later, he proposed.

Abby wasn’t fazed by the prospect of long-distance wedding planning, and with the help of a planner, the couple pulled off a glamorous ski-lodge wedding, with bursts of metallic gold to play off Colorado’s snowy landscape.

Don’t forget to plan for someone to move these items if your florist will not be on site after the ceremony to do so.  If space and time allows we recommend moving all your ceremony flowers to your reception to fully enjoy them on your wedding day.

{Tuesday Tip} Color Over It With Chalk

Chalk.

Keep a stick of white chalk handy while you’re getting ready. In the event that you spill or  brush your dress against something take a stick of chalk and lightly “color” over the stain. Chalk is great for footprints on your train.  The chalk will mask an unwanted splashes of color and keep your dress in pristine condition. Chalk is also fantastic for occupying bored flower girls and ring bearers. So keep some chalk on hand.
