1.Call your VIP’s and Enjoy the Moment!

You’re mother has been waiting for this day longer than you! Make sure you give her the news you wouldn’t want your closets relatives finding out the nail tech knew first. Being engaged means you get to plan the wedding you always dreamed of you also have the opportunity to spend the rest of your life with your soulmate, enjoy it!

2.Come up with a budget

It’s time to get down to business. Weddings can get pretty pricey, from your wedding dress all the way down to chairs! It’s easier to get yourself organized with a ballpark budget without this it will be quite difficult to book the right venue and vendors for your price point. We recommend to also determine a rough guest list to ensure an accurate and reasonable budget.

3.Pull out the calendar & Set a date

It’s great to have a range of dates before you tour venues many factors go into this will it be a fall wedding? How’s the weather in spring? We all know how hot South Florida could be for a summer wedding! All of these take a big part in the planning department.

Chandeliers aren’t a new trend but you can use them in so many new creative ways! Chandeliers are often grouped over a table adding elements to the décor. We’ve even placed them in tables! No matter the type, chandeliers always add a touch of romance causing the entire room to gasp.

Uplighting is a great way to create the perfect ambiance at your event. Empty ballrooms tend to lack a lot of character adding perimeter lighting builds that ambiance setting a great mood when you’re guest walk in.

DIY IDEAS FOR DIFFERENT OCCASSIONS

If you’re a girl, you know DIY ideas are very much in style these days. Most of us love to get creative for any special event we might have coming up. Of course, things might not come out as professionally done as when you go to buy them, or have a specialist do it for you. But if you’re like us, we love to get our hands dirty and are always interested in trying and doing new things even if they don’t come out as planned. It’s always good to try new things, and of course nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment once we come up with an idea and dedicate our time to bring it to life, and just knowing you tried something new and it worked out and looks amazing for the event.

DIY’s, can also work out as great gifts. Sometimes it’s hard to go out and look for the perfect gift, or just a gift that someone will enjoy in general. Personally speaking, the thought someone puts into making something rather than going out and buying it is more meaningful simply because it shows that even if you’re a busy person, you still went and made time to create something special.

For the lovely brides to be, here is an example of a cute and fun way to pop the question to your bridesmaids. It is a simple small cardboard box, with a ring pop inside.

If  you are looking for a cute and simple DIY gift idea, this personalized alternative to a photo album, can be used for a really nice special gift. It can be used with a small wooden box that you can buy online, or at a nearby craft store. The rest can be made by using cut out paper and printed out photos. This DIY project can be used as an anniversary gift, birthday present to a friend or relative, holiday celebration, etc.

 Another of our personal favorite DIY projects, is this Mason jar floating centerpiece. Mason jars have been a major trend lately.  They can be used for almost anything and are very economical. You can find these pretty much anywhere these days since they have been a major hit this year! The way to do this DIY project, is to fill up the Mason jar with water and add a floating candle on top. You can also add some pebbles, rocks, or anything to your taste that will sink to the bottom of the jar adding a special decorative touch.  These can be used as centerpieces for a baby shower, wedding, birthday party, holiday event, etc.

Importance Of Event Lighting

Event lighting is one of the most important mediums to bring the atmosphere to life. Special concepts of lighting can be used to transform any empty space into an elegant and visually appealing room. Lighting can be used for practically anything. Some of the most common ways to use lighting would be for center pieces, buffets, floral arrangements, walls, stages, dance-floors, etc. Lighting in an event determines how your guests see the room, and it improves and enhances the overall appearance of the ambiance. It can transform any empty space from an uninspired, lusterless room, into a magical wonderland.

When selecting the lighting for your event, it is recommended to keep in mind these few things. First, begin by asking yourself a few of these questions: What features of the room would you like to highlight? Which areas would you like to de-emphasize? What décor elements would you like to highlight? Can the different types of lighting texture be controlled individually? What type of power do they have available at the location?  These are some of the most frequently asked questions when selecting what type of lighting you would like to have for your event. Of course, if you already have a wedding planner, they will be more than happy to answer these questions, or to ask them for you.

When considering a lighting company for your event, it is important to make sure you or your event planner use a reliable and experienced company that will make sure to help you reach each and every one of your goals for the event. You also want to make sure the company uses quality equipment that will be safe to rely on. One should always ask to see pictures of previous events they have worked on, and it is also recommended to check for comments on the company and reviews so one could have an idea of the type of work the company does, and is known for.

Planning on a Budget

When planning a wedding, it is always best to think about the venue first. Of course, setting the date is also an important factor. When visiting a venue, it is recommended to have a date set for space availability do to the fact that several spaces get booked months, and even years in advance! Once you have your heart set on a date, it is important to act fast and book your dream venue before someone else does! If you are struggling on how to get started on planning the perfect wedding and what would be the best option venue wise, don’t worry! Here are some tips on what to look for when conducting your venue search with confidence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Work on your Budget– We all know how expensive a wedding can be. The sooner you discuss the budget with your partner, the easier it will be. It is good to have an idea beforehand on how much you are willing to spend on a venue, while keeping in mind the rest of the expenses that will be made aside from the wedding location. It is also useful to know your grand total, that way you can have an idea of the areas you would like to splurge, or save in a little.

Set the date– If you already have a date in mind this part will be easy! The sooner you plan the date, the sooner you can start checking out the venues and their availability. Remember, choosing a venue is a tricky task! It is a good idea to keep a few dates in mind so there will be no disappointments, especially if you already have a venue in mind.

Guest list– Don’t worry, you don’t need to know the specific amount right away! But it is ideal to have in mind a number since this is important information for your budget, the venue and the suppliers. We know and understand it’s natural to want to invite everyone to this special event, but keep in mind the bigger the list the bigger the budget and venue options!

blog223

Style– Selecting the perfect theme or style for your wedding can be controversial. Having a certain style in mind can help you bear down some details, and if you already have a theme planned, it is important to keep it in mind that way you can have an idea of what it will look like in each venue you visit. Whatever style you choose, always remember it will come to life with the final details such as lighting, decorations, furniture, entertainment, etc.
