Rachel & Paul

The photographer described it best by saying this event was a glamorous barn wedding. From the gold accents to the twinkle lights, Rachel and Paul’s wedding had every ounce of glam mixed in the rustic backdrop. The Attire: The bridesmaids were dressed in beautiful pale pink chiffon gowns, while the groomsmen all looked dapper in suits from Men’s Wearhouse. As an added touch, the bride attached her grandmother’s brooch to her bridal bouquet. The Scene: Rachel and Paul exchanged vows in front of several family and friends on that June 26th afternoon. As the ceremony drew to an end, the Oklahoma skies delivered one incredible sunset before the couple and their guests entered the reception space.

choose to tie the knot away from home and the trend is only growing. Although planning a wedding from afar may seem like a headache, we’re here to tell you that may not always be the case!

73


While all venues are beautiful, there’s nothing like having your wedding pictures taken in a unique locale. Somewhere that sparks conversation above and beyond “hey I’ve been to a million weddings there!

74


Your mom wants to invite your great-aunt twice removed and your in-laws are insisting that you invite a step-cousin’s wife’s sister. Before you reach for that second glass of wine, take a second and consider the ease of planning a destination wedding and the smaller guest list that comes with it.

75


At some point in the planning process, every bride wakes up in a cold sweat from a nightmare about bridesmaid dresses. Will everyone like them? Does the color match the napkins? Will they truly get to wear them again? Destination weddings typically mean a smaller wedding party, which means fewer decisions (or nightmares!) for you in the fashion department.

You’re already there! Quite literally, your honeymoon will start the second you step away from your reception. Spend your wedding night walking on the beach or taking in some nightlife - there’s no need to stress about transportation back to the hotel and preparing for your impending honeymoon trip. Let’s also not forget that many wedding destinations have great deals on wedding and honeymoon packages!

76


Whether trying the knot in Italy, Hawaii or Mexico, you will always have a special place to retreat to for anniversaries, vow renewals, or just a romantic vacation together.

A destination wedding may not be for every couple, but there are a lot of pros to consider when making the decision. Learn more by visiting http://bit.ly/1YXGL8P 77

Signature drinks are a fun and easy way to give your wedding a dash of individuality. As this option tends to be more budget friendly than others, more and more couples are now opting to skip the full bar altogether and instead showcase his or hers signature cocktails.

These are Something New for I Do’s top reasons to love signature drinks: Signature drinks help tie in your theme and add a trendy flare.

If your wedding is focused on a color palette rather than a theme, a great way to bring your palette full circle is selecting drinks by color, using glassware or garnishes that compliment your color choices. If you are having a brunch time wedding, consider having a bacon infused Bloody Mary served in a seasoned rimmed mason jar.

Choosing a signature drink over a full bar can help you save tremendously.

A well thought out bar with one or two signature drink options is a lot more cost effective than a fully stocked bar. Aside from the cost of liquor liability insurance and whatever fees your venue requires for bar service or BYOB packages, costs can quickly add up. When you opt for one or several cocktails, you’ll notice that you budget goes much further.

Your guests will love trying something new.

Do you have a signature sangria recipe? Or is there a new cocktail you and your fiancé have started making? You guests will love the opportunity to try new drinks without going out and purchasing them. You can even have non-alcoholic varieties for the youngsters. It is important to make your wedding as unique as you are, and the signature drink is one of the best ways to do it. Now it’s time to get creative! If you have any trouble, visit http://bit.ly/1KRXjYq for more recipes and inspiration.

With the ever growing popularity of Instagram, it is no surprise that many couples are creating hashtags for their wedding guests to use on the big day. Doing so allows the attendees to not just watch, but be a part of your wedding. But the real question is, how do you create a wedding hashtag? One that everyone will be able to type in - whether tipsy or not - and one that has not been used before. Simple. Follow these quick tips: 100


USE YOUR NAMES. Sure there may be several Jim and Johns out there, but using your name is just the first part of the equation. THROW IN A WEDDING WORD. It’s obviously your wedding day, so why not use a word that identifies it. Words like: Hitch, Wed, Tie the Knot, I Do, Wedding, etc. ALLITERATIONS ARE FUN. And simple to remember. Use something like #HarrisonsGetHitched or #WildWilsonWedding. SPRUCE IT UP WITH A RHYME. Consider your names and if they rhyme with any wedding related words. Is your new last name going to be Stewart? Shorten it a bit and go with #StewPartyof2. WE LOVE TO BE PUNNY. Think about using an idiom or a common phrase in your hashtag. You can switch out a specific word with your name to get the punny in there. KEEP IT SWEET. Sure you could use something like #StephanieMarriesDanielCrowder as your hashtag, but it’s better to keep your hashtag short and sweet. Doing so will eliminate any guests from making any grammatical errors when entering it in. This doesn’t mean you can’t use your names. But consider using #StephWedsDan16 instead. GO TO THE SOURCE. Once you’ve come up with the perfect hashtag, log in to Instagram and check it out. This will confirm that your creative genius is all yours! SPREAD THE WORD. One thing to keep in mind once you’ve selected your perfect wedding hashtag, is to make it known to your guests. Add it to your wedding invitations, on your wedding website and place signs around your venues.

If it gets down to the wire and nothing has popped into your head, you can visit http://bit.ly/1LpA7UW for quick and easy help.

It Works! T T R I B U

I began with It Works using the wraps after exercising wanting to tone up with my weight loss and had great results. I added other It Works products to my regimen when I felt my clothes getting loose and my body becoming healthier. Currently to date I have lost over 60 lbs and tons of inches. I believe this is a great way for you to prepare for your wedding day and begin a new time in your life.
