Let Them Eat Cake!

 Bring Back Big Cakes!

Something happened and we lost the tradition of wedding cakes. We have moved on to dessert bars, doughnut towers, cupcakes, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a fun dessert bar and think those can be so beautiful. However, today I want to focus on cakes. Wedding cakes used to be your centerpiece – they were the focal point at the reception. What happened – why did we lose that? We die over a beautiful cake and absolutely adore unique cakes that represent the couple.

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!

What Kind Of Transportation Should I Get For The Exit?

Picking The Perfect Sendoff

This is another super popular question and something we always remind our couples to save some room for in the budget! No matter what – you need a ride home! It’s rare that we see a couple want to drive themselves, so make sure you put some thought into this. We have couples that prefer to save some money and get an Uber or a Cab – that is perfectly fine – just make sure you have a plan in place. You certainly don’t want to be in charge of calling or setting up your ride home. Others want something a bit more fun….

Here are some FABULOUS rides that are couples have taken home:

Carriage Ride

There is nothing more sweet and southern than a carriage ride! Of course these carriages are a bit limited to where they can travel, but Charleston has several carriage services and some specific to weddings. This definitely adds some romance to your day and gives you two some time to be alone. If you are considering using a carriage, we recommend that you use one following the ceremony when it is still light out and take advantage of the carriage bringing  you to different locations for photos. There are some instances where you can use carriages for your reception exit as well, but the location of your reception and your final destination will make a difference in whether or not this is possible.

What is the Best Way to Exit Your Wedding?

Special Exits For Special Couples

We get this question ALL the time! First thing you want to do is check your venue contract. Several venues have very specific rules about the types of exits that are allowed, so before heading to Pinterest and spending your valuable time coming up with an exit, you will want to see what is permissible at your specific venue. We see a lot of couples put a lot of time and energy into these exits, which is super fun, but don’t feel obligated to do it – it’s your wedding – spend your time and money anyway you want!

We always recommend checking in with your photographer and following their recommendations, because they will of course be the ones to capture it. They can always give some great insight into what has worked the best for them and if they aren’t going to be there for the exit, it may not make sense to do an evening exit. In this case, we generally recommend to plan a fun exit following your ceremony, so they are there to capture that. Exits are very difficult to capture because there is typically no light, so you will definitely want to make sure if you have something super fun planned – you will want a professional photographer there to capture it for you and let them know in advance what you have planned.

Check out our fabulous couples and what they have done for their exits:

The Sparkler Exit

First up is the sparkler exit. This is by far the most popular, but also one of the most common exits not allowed at venues, so be sure to check your contract before you purchase anything! I would say this is probably a photographers favorite as well because it provides light and creates a beautiful picture. It’s probably a planners least favorite – depending on how much your guests drink! haha. We have certainly been burned before, and we have seen guests almost burn couples as well – so you may want to keep that in mind if your guests like to party!
