Cheers To Seven Years As Charleston Wedding Planners!

The Top Seven Things We Have Learned In The Past Seven Years

Seven years later and we couldn’t be happier to still be able to do our dream job and work with the best people in Charleston! It’s hard to put into words everything we have learned over the years, because we are still learning every day and we are still striving to be the best planners we can be. Every day is a new experience and every client is new and unique in their own way. These are all things that make our job challenging but also keeps us on our toes and challenge us, which we love. We don’t want to do the same event for everyone – we want your event to be unique and to represent YOU!

Invitation Suites

A Detail Photo You Don’t Want To Miss!

One of my favorite wedding day detail pictures is the invitation suite. I don’t know whether it is about those beautiful paper products, the colors, or the different fonts that make me swoon and just fall in love all over again with the details of the day. Also, if you have any interest in your wedding being featured on a blog, an invitation suite is a must have picture! Not to mention, it’s a beautiful keepsake and one you can admire for years to come!

Is A Menu Card A Waste Of Money? Think Again….

Menu Cards and your Table Design

We are quick to let our brides know when they are spending money that can be allocated for something important and we certainly don’t like to see waste. Unfortunately, we have attended/planned too many weddings where we see the guests politely decline the favor and we end up packing them all back up in your car at the end of the night. So you are then left with 200 trinkets and a thinner wallet. Put your money into the design and what will make your guests feel welcome and special!

Nothing finishes off a table quite like a menu card. The simplicity, color, and elegance of a menu card can really tie everything together and add to your overall design. Not to mention, you can always add a welcome note, a quick thank you, or a cute little design or monogram to show off your new married name. Your photographer will LOVE it, your guests will feel welcomed, and I guarantee people will be talking about how beautiful the tablescape looks. Remember a little touch goes a long way!

See some of our couples fabulous menu cards and let us know what you think!

Including Your Fur Babies On Your Wedding Day – Our Tips & Link To Our Feature In Wedding Lovely

Some of our Furry Clients, Tips & Tricks, & A National Dog Day Feature

Yes, yes, yes! We LOVE when our couples include their beloved fur babies in their wedding day! How could you not include them? They are such a big part of your lives, so we absolutely want them to be a part of the day their humans officially unite.

Is your dog maybe not the most obedient? No problem, just bring them for a “first look” so you can snag some pictures and then send them home with a trusted sitter.

Do you have the perfect puppy? Some venues are totally fine with your dog being at the entire event, so just make sure you clear it with your venue if you prefer they stay and be a part of the whole day. Also, remember your surroundings. County parks in the lowcountry have lots of wild animals, so having your best friend off a leash and wandering around, may not be the safest thing to do!

A BIG thanks to Wedding Lovely for featuring some of our tips in their blog on National Dog Day – you seriously won’t want to miss these squeezable pups – so check it out here!

Check out these adorable photos and ideas from our couples including their pets on their big day…

Not Interested In Wearing A Veil? Have You Considered Flower Crowns or Head Pieces?

Flower Crowns & Head Pieces

Maybe a veil isn’t your thing – we totally get it! A fresh flower, flower crowns, jewels, head pieces or a stunning headband can be used as a fabulous accent piece or accessory! We love it when girls want to be a little edgy or steer away from a more traditional look. That definitely doesn’t take away from the beauty of being a bride and I have fallen in love with how some of our brides have accessorized. Be you and wear whatever makes you feel beautiful, and most importantly, whatever makes you feel like a bride!

How To Pick The Perfect Veil

What Type Of Veil Is Perfect For You?

A lot of brides don’t put much thought into a veil or even wanting one until they finally have that “veil experience.” You find yourself in a fabulous dress shop with the most important people in your life, and in the MOST perfect dress, and it really can’t get any better…. until…. you put on a veil.  Everything stops and suddenly you realize… YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED!  Cue the tears…

A veil is a super unique accessory that really makes a bride feel like a bride. Your veil is a fabulous way to show off your style, include a family heirloom, and/or compliment your dress – there are just SO many options! Also, if you are planning to do a first look, you can save the veil for the ceremony so that you still bring an element of surprise when you walk down the aisle.

Let’s take a look at some of our past brides and their absolutely fabulous veils….

The Cathedral Length Veil: 

This is where the drama is at ladies! We love everything about these and they photograph so beautifully! Your veil may be a heirloom that means more to the person that first wore it than you may ever know or a beautiful way to include someone that is no longer with us. You can match scalloping, design, or lace with your dress or you can go with a simple cathedral length veil with no design and it will bring the same amount of beauty and drama. Sometimes the simpler the better…depending on your dress of course! I just love the softness and beauty it brings – I mean look at these pictures!!

The only thing to consider is if you are getting married outside, it may catch on the ground or the wind may be a problem. We have lots of solutions for that – so just chat with us if you need any pointers!
