Destination Due Diligence

If your honeymoon is right after your wedding, be sure to book all travel tickets and rooms in your maiden name! The State Department takes 5-6 weeks to issue new passports and the DMV will not issue a new license without your certified marriage certificate.

Worried that you or your spouse will use the wrong name as you plan? Travel insurance will allow you to correct any name mistakes without incurring change fees.

Saying “I do” abroad? Make sure that your marriage certificate will be accepted by U.S. government agencies. A quick call to the head Social Security office at 800.772.1213 is all it takes! To see more destination wedding/honeymoon travel tips, visit HeadOverHeelsWeddingBlog.com

Ask the Experts: 8 WEDDING TRENDS ON THE DECLINE

It’s no secret that wedding trends come and go, and today’s modern bride is always searching for new, now, and next. Some trends are going out the window completely, while others are simply evolving with fresh twists on old traditions. Here is a list of 8 wedding trends on the decline as reported by our national wedding expert, Susan Southerland.


DOUBLE-SIDED BUFFETS: Many couples are hesitant about buffets to begin with, desiring the more elegant approach of a plated meal. Double-sided buffets may speed up traditional buffet service, but they do take up additional reception floor space because they have to be pulled away from the walls. This can encroach on space that couples could otherwise use to set up unique reception elements, such as a mix of square and round tables or diamond shaped dance floors. MASHED POTATO BARS: Who doesn’t love a mashed potato bar, really? This was a tough call, but we are seeing couples mix up their novelty food bars a bit– going with lighter fare, seasonal or regional options, and specialty cuisine (think sushi, yum)! STRANGERS AS GUESTS: Paring down your guest list to only your closest friends and family will allow you to stretch your budget. Skip the out-of-touch college friends from Facebook, inviting every coworker, or distant relatives– not to mention their dates, some of whom you may not even know. It also allows the couple to spend more time mingling, dancing, and taking photos with their smaller group of guests. LARGE BRIDAL PARTIES: With couples marrying a little later in life, on average, the likelihood of having close siblings, childhood friends, college pals and work buddies to choose from for your bridal party has increased. Large bridal parties can add significantly to wedding expenses such as bouquets, gifts, hair and makeup, etc. They can also potentially make things more hectic on the wedding day, from getting ready to getting down the aisle. We think this is why bridal parties of more than three or four attendants on each side are on the decline.


WILDFLOWERS: Here’s a trend that is not fading out entirely, but rather taking on new shapes. With the upshot in the trend towards brunch receptions and garden parties, soft and elegant floral is still in, featuring heartier garden-style cut floral than the daintier field-variety we have seen in recent years. THE DOLLAR DANCE: We have received markedly fewer requests for the Dollar Dance at recent weddings. Some find it lighthearted and in good fun, while others find it flat out tacky to dance for a few dollars. As with all elements of your wedding, trendy or not, it’s how you look at it that counts! CUPCAKES AS WEDDING CAKES: Another trend with a twist, cupcakes are still going strong; however, the standard cupcake tower is being replaced by more creative displays, including miniature cakes and additional pastries (see next trend for details)! WEDDING CAKES AS LONE DESSERTS: While gorgeous, delicious wedding cakes are still all the rage, they are rarely the lone dessert. Couples are also including a variety of wedding desserts to choose from, such as pies, cupcakes, cake pops, tarts, cookies, macarons, donuts and custom ice cream flavors joining the party. A dessert buffet ensures that everyone’s sweet tooth is satisfied. Opt for a setup with different levels of cakes stands or tiered trays against a decorative backdrop to really ‘wow’ your guests!

Real Weddings: McKall + Anthony


Anthony and McKall are a real couple recently reunited with each other after Anthony was gone for nearly six months of basic training. We did this shoot about two weeks after Anthony returned home and the feelings of excitement and pure joy of having each other close once again are apparent in the photographs. I love the realness and genuine nature of this session. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome and “chapter,” in our ongoing story.

Real Atlanta Weddings: Deana + Scott (Bert’s Big Adventure Wedding)


Deana Warren and Scott Oxford had been together for years when they got engaged. Soon following, they heard the shocking news that Scott had leukemia. As Scott began his fight, it was less than 6 months later when Deana’s youngest son, Emory, was diagnosed with ALL- Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Needless to say, the wedding was on hold. Last February, Q100 (99.7FM - Atlanta’s top radio station) and Bert’s Big Adventure (a non-profit organization started by Q100 morning show host, Bert Weiss, and his wife, Stacy) approached the Perfect Wedding Guide Atlanta Market Manager, Anne Cohen, with a unique opportunity: to throw a wedding for a family in need. Bert’s Big Adventure, established in 2002, provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for children between the ages of 5 and 12 with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Each February, before the families depart for their Walt Disney experience, The Bert Show hosts “The Big Send-Off” live on the air, and one-by-one, the show hosts reveal life-changing surprises for each family. When Bert’s Big Adventure told Atlanta Perfect Wedding Guide the story of Deana Warren and Scott Oxford, Anne knew she had no choice but to make this wedding happen. In less than a week’s time, Anne had secured a full wedding for the Oxford/ Warren family with the unbelievable help of her Perfect Wedding Guide wedding professionals. Live on the air, she let Deana and Scott know that the following professionals were going to make their wedding dreams come true. On November 10, 2013, Deana and Scott were married at The Georgian Terrace – in the very room where they held the premier gala for Gone With The Wind! Emory and Scott are both still fighting, and they are currently winning their fights!

HOW-TO:

5 IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN RENTING A TENT FOR YOUR WEDDING by Susan Southerland

Photo by Lyndsey


I love tent weddings. It is hard to find a cleaner palette for you to create the precise look you imagine for your wedding. Tents do, however, have some challenges. Here are my top five things to watch out for when renting a tent for your wedding. • Do you have enough space for the tent? You need to consider that you will need enough space for the tent and the stakes that secure the tent. Make sure your tent rental company inspects your property to ensure your tent will fit properly. • Do you have the right terrain for a tent? Is your yard full of hills? Do you have a stunning, old tree right in the center of your yard? If you answer yes to either of these questions, you may find hoisting a tent in your yard to be a challenge. • Do you have enough of a budget to rent a tent? Tent rentals are not an inexpensive prospect. You will need to rent the structure, pay for permits; you may need flooring, heaters, air conditioners, generators for extra power, and lighting. You will most likely also need to rent tables, chairs and linens. Make sure you have a realistic idea of what the tent and all the accouterments will cost you. • Do you have sufficient time for setup and breakdown? If you are hosting your wedding at home, setup time isn’t much of an issue, however, if you are renting property, you will need to find out how many hours the tent setup and breakdown will take and get it approved from your site. You may have to pay additional fees to allow for proper setup and breakdown time. • Do you have enough of a budget to decorate the tent? Tents can be challenging for the very reason I love them so much. They are a blank slate. You have to fill them with decor This can be a costly project. If you have enough of a budget and you love the challenge of creating a wedding venue that reflects your personality and style exactly as you envision, try a tent wedding. Trust me, there is no greater satisfaction than transforming a simple tent in to an extraordinary venue. For more décor tips and trends, visit www.HeadOverHeelsWeddingBlog.com
