“As Brett’s event designer and matron of honor, I wanted to throw her a BACHELORETTE PARTY that was girly, fun, and combined a few of her favorite things. My team and I put together a CHAMPAGNE BAR and whoopie pie bar, so guests could mix their own drinks and build their own treats during the party.” - CANDACE KALASKY
â€œWe wanted the guests to have a lot of options when making their champagne cocktails, so we filled different glass containers with Chambord, St. Germain (a delicious elderflower liqueur), orange juice, grapefruit juice, peach puree and strawberry puree.â€?
â€œThe party guests could also create numerous WHOOPIE PIE flavor combinations with the cakes and frostings made by Butterfly Bakery. Food buffets are primarily about the food being served, but I also like to FOCUS ON THE DESIGN details and the food presentation. A lot of times, my designs include nontraditional materials. I also love creating CUSTOM SIGNAGE and stationery, but I like the paper items I design to be functional. As you can see from the photos, our BUBBLY BAR SIGN included cocktail recipes and the bunting above the table included instructions for assembling the whoopie pies and treat bags so the girls could take extra pies home with them.â€?

â€œThe inspiration my husband, Tyler, and I used for our wedding was taken from the venue itself -- trains. We concentrated on a vintage feel using chalkboards, birdcages, and brooches in my bouquet and we let the historical venue do the rest.â€? - CHRISTINE, Bride

â€œMy husband and I wanted our backyard wedding to be casual and fun, where our guests could either relax in the shade and enjoy the band or energetically play lawn games. Through creativity and amazing thrift store finds, we were able to keep the cost under $5,000. With the help of my amazing bridesmaids, we were able to DIY all of the decorations and altar.â€? - EMILY, the bride
