They have been together since the day she moved back to the states, six years ago! Brett & Mckenzie won a free engagement session through Beau Vaughn, and decided to book after their experience. Above all else, they wanted a fun day, and booked their vendors based on that. The Stanley was the perfect rooftop ceremony, and they chose the Aspen Room for it’s romantic and rustic feel – and those gorgeous chandeliers! They said Nothing Bundt Cake’s bundtinis were a huge hit. For a final fun touch, they hired Lost Wax for live music, which kept the party going all night with their amazing energy! 31

Eventful at Locust Grove 816-640-3203 eventfulweston.com Wedding Date: October 25, 2014 Venue: Eventful at Locust Grove in Weston, MO Photography: Atley Marks Photographer Special Touches: Jennifer and Trevor had a fabulous autumn wedding full of DIY touches. They had a breathtaking outdoor ceremony, the trees were full of colorful leaves and pumpkins lining the aisle. Inside at the reception, the bride made paper pom pomps in their wedding colors (cranberry, gold, and ivory) to add along the long burlap wall. The tables had a bevy of autumn touches for their center pieces. Including: white pumpkins, apples, birch wrapped candles, vases with wands that had ribbons and little bells tied to them for the guests to wave at the couple, all sitting on antique books. For dessert they had mouthwatering cupcakes that were displayed on a vintage ladder stand. They had simply adorable wedding favors‌Gold boxed caramel apples, it was the perfect gift for an October wedding and it made a gorgeous display. Yummy apple cider was served at the bar in darling mason jars with little tags to write your name on and birch patterned straws. We truly enjoyed being apart of all their creativity and loved celebrating this special day with these lovely people at our venue. 53

Once they began dating, they knew from day one they would be together for the rest of their lives. They chose Berry Acres because of the amount of space, and because of all the personal touches they offered. Rhett & Taylor said they never had a moment of stress or worry the whole day, and had to pinch themselves to make sure this day was real! They never had to leave Berry Acres, which made the whole day run smoothly. With amazing photography opportunities on site, there’s no need to travel! They had unique centerpieces on every table, and over five cake choices ranging from strawberry to chocolate ganache. Rhett & Taylor’s first dance made a statement – check out the awesome fog effect on the one of a kind LED dance floor! 111

FOUR

OVERLOOKED WEDDING FEES THAT MIGHT CAUSE

OVERSPENDING

Here at Perfect Wedding Guide, we often talk about creating a wedding budget and sticking to it. And now, we want to share with you some hidden pitfalls you should avoid if you want to stick to your budget. These are expenses that you might not be aware of, but you need to consider when planning how you’re going to spend your money. 134


Gown Alterations. It’s very rare to find a wedding gown that fits you perfectly. You will likely at least need to have the length reduced. You may also need the gown taken in around the bust or waist, have a bustle made, and possibly have cups installed so you don’t have to wear a bra. These alterations can add up. Before you order your gown, get an estimate from the salon on what your alteration fees might be and account for those fees in your budget. Bartender fees and cake-cutting fees. Not all caterers and reception sites charge for bartenders or for cutting and serving your cake, but you don’t want to be caught unaware if they do. The time to understand and negotiate these fees is when you are signing your contract. If you are hosting an open bar, don’t be afraid to ask for your site to waive your bartender fee if your guests consume a certain dollar amount. If you are bringing your wedding cake in from a pastry shop and you’d like to avoid a cake-cutting fee, ask if you can order a dessert course to make up for the loss in cake revenue.

Bridal Shower Themes Lime light Photography M & E Photo Studio

With Pinterest growing steadily in popularity, hosts of bridal showers are getting really creative with their theme ideas. From the bride’s favorite musical to her favorite type of candy, inspiration for themes is in no short supply. Here are some of our recent favorites: Throwback Themes. We love the idea of a shower theme based on the decade of the bride’s birth. Got a 90’s bride? Give out scrunchies as party favors and offer guests bean bag chairs. An 80’s bride? Decorate with bright, vibrant (neon-like) colors and load up the iPod with one-hit wonders. A 70’s bride? Bring out the disco ball and bellbottom pants. And let’s not forget our flower child theme for 60’s brides! Opulent Elegance. A la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, hosts are going classic and romantic. From flowy script on the invites to favors brushed with gold, this theme will leave guests breathless! You can even ask guests to dress in their finest for an extra special touch. Garden Party. Simple and sweet, the garden party is a classic shower theme that will never go out of style. Use a fresh spring color palette, soft floral accents, and an assortment of food and beverages such as petit fours, frosted cookies, and pink lemonade to bring this theme together. These are just a few of our favorites. The options are really endless! For more tips, visit HeadOverHeelsWeddingBlog.com

TO BACHELOR AND BACHELORETTE PARTIES

146

Weddings come with many traditions, not the least of which is the famed bachelor and/or bachelorette party. Most of us think of drunken revelry and questionable “clothing optional” activities during these events, but I’ve found that not all couples are comfortable with this. After all, some of the things that happen at these parties can come back to haunt you!


I thought it would be fun to come up with a list of alternatives to Ye Olde Bachelor/Bachelorette Party. Here are a few ideas: Host a party. Some countries have a tradition called the Stag and Doe Party (also called the Hen and Stag Party, Jack and Jill Party, etc.). At these events, guests celebrate the couple’s forthcoming marriage and give them money to use towards their wedding and future life together. Attend an event that has meaning to you. Do you love a particular sports team? Rent a limo and attend one of their games with some of your closest friends. Did you meet at a bar? Take some friends along on a haunted pub crawl. Are you both Christmas fanatics? Go and see the Nutcracker Suite. Take a road trip. Imagine how nice it would be to escape before the wedding to a romantic bed and breakfast. Enjoy some quiet time together without discussing wedding plans. You might be surprised how much it reenergizes you! Enjoy a few laughs. Consider a group outing to the local comedy club. Nothing like a night of laughter to help ease any wedding stress, right? Along the same lines are dueling piano bars and karaoke bars, both fun places to celebrate. Take a class. Just because you’re planning a wedding doesn’t mean you can’t learn something fun and new. Consider taking a dance class, learning how to mix cocktails from a mixologist, or maybe take a painting or pottery class that will allow the two of you to make a special memento together. There are many ways to celebrate your last moments as singles… even if you celebrate together! If you have some other ideas of great bachelor or bachelorette alternatives, please send me an email to susan.southerland@pwg.com and we might include your ideas on our wedding planning blog, Head Over Heels! 147


THE

GROOMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GUIDE TO BEING THE

HOST with the MOST

The most memorable weddings are the ones where the bride and groom are engaged with one another and with their guests. There is no doubt that it can be hard work smiling all day and night, posing for photos, dancing, and chatting up 150 of your closest friends and family, but if you follow these tips, your guests will marvel at what an amazing groom you are.

148


Before the wedding, review your guest list and become familiar with who’s attending. This will help you remember to whom you are being introduced on the wedding day. Don’t consume too much alcohol. I don’t want to be a party pooper, but if you’re hung over from the rehearsal dinner or sloppy drunk during the wedding reception, your photos will be terrible and it will be much harder for you to make small talk with your guests. Party as hard as you’d like at the bachelor party and on your honeymoon, but be conservative at your wedding.

Prior to the ceremony, mingle with guests as they arrive. Talking with your friends and family will also help relieve pre-wedding jitters. Write your bride a note and have it delivered to the room where she is getting ready. Tell her how much you love her and how excited you are to start spending your life together as husband and wife. 150


Put out fires. Your bride likely did the bulk of the planning up to the big day. If you see something that might upset her, do your best to step in and fix it, even if that means asking for help from your groomsmen or family members. Give a welcome speech. Thank your guests for coming, thank your new in-laws for throwing such an amazing party (if applicable), and toast your beautiful bride. You will make your family proud. Go table to table with your bride and visit your guests. It’s tempting to hang with your buddies at the bar, but it’s proper etiquette to personally speak with each of your guests. Stay on the dance floor as much as you can. Dance with your new wife, with your mom, your sister and your aunt. Help make shy guests feel a part of the festivities by asking them to join you on the dance floor. Don’t leave your bride alone. Make sure when you are on the dance floor she has a dancing partner as well. Take time to have intimate conversations with her and hold her hand as often as possible. Being a great host doesn’t end with the wedding day. Make sure you help your bride write thank you notes after the honeymoon. If you follow these tips, you’re bound to wow your guests as well as your bride. Then you can head off to enjoy your honeymoon!

Have you ever eaten so much at dinner that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have room for dessert? As strange as it sounds, this analogy often applies to weddings and honeymoons. Couples can get so caught up in the planning of their wedding that they neglect planning their honeymoon. This may lead to problems, especially if all of the money budgeted for the wedding is used on the ceremony and reception. For some couples, postponing the honeymoon is the only option. 162


Here are some reasons why:

Budget. As mentioned above, lack of money is the number one reason couples postpone their honeymoons. No Leave. Some couples can’t take a honeymoon because they don’t have the time to take off of work or school. Interest. This may come as a surprise, but some couples are simply too exhausted by the entire planning process to even think about planning their honeymoon. Timing. Some couples want to visit a location that isn’t ideal to visit during the timing of their wedding, such as a Caribbean destination in the heart of hurricane season. In this case, they may postpone until the timing is better. They’re already there. Couples who have a destination wedding often include the honeymoon in their wedding budget because they’re already away from home in a honeymoon setting. When it comes to deciding whether or not to postpone your wedding, be sure to weigh the pros and cons as they apply to your situation. You don’t want to go into debt because you feel you have to go on your honeymoon right after the wedding, and you

might not want to make sacrifices if you choose to honeymoon on a tight budget. Whatever you decide, enjoy those early days together as husband and wife as much as you can. Sometimes, just living in the moment is honeymoon enough!

To help simplify things, let’s place wedding services into two basic categories: trendy or traditional. Trendy weddings feature all of the hottest themes from today’s wedding industry, whereas traditional weddings follow standards set over generations. Trendy weddings will get your guests talking and make a memorable impression, whereas traditional weddings are timeless events that pay homage to our heritage and age well in photos and video. So…which type of wedding should you have?

Trendy or Traditional

• You enjoy living in the “now.” • You consider yourself a no conformist. • You love keeping up with the hottest trends in all areas of your life. • You want your wedding to stand out from all the rest. • Time-honored traditions play an important role in your life. • It’s a part of your religion and/or culture. • You don’t want to “date” your wedding with the trends from only this point in time. • You’re concerned about what your family and guests will think if you stray from tradition.

If you don’t fall clearly within one of these categories, you can always blend the two. You’ll likely find that your tastes stray closer to one than the other as you make your decisions. In the end, what will matter is that you went with what you love most!
