Settle in around the granite fireplace, or cook up your favorite cuisine in the gourmet kitchen.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN: Blooming with creativity and hard-earned talent, Allison always found her happy place making people smile with flowers. An active career in landscaping and floral design led her to purchase an existing florist’s shop and give it her own twist, renaming it Allioops! Flowers & Gifts, in 2009. She found her perfect business match in seasoned petal pro Annavitte French. Together, they deliver inspired arrangements that reflect their clients’ unique tastes while celebrating the ever-changing beauty of New England.

KATE’S ADVICE: “ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME FOR ANY DIY PROJECTS! HANDMADE TOUCHES WILL MAKE YOUR DESIGN DEEPLY PERSONAL, BUT THEY TEND TO TAKE LONGER THAN EXPECTED. PLAN AHEAD TO ENSURE STRESS—FREE CRAFT PARTIES.”

*striking the perfect chord of polished country style, kate constructed an

aesthetic that united organic refinement with a hint of homespun whimsy.

wildflower arrangements topped tables lined with cream linens, complemented by hemstitch napkins, hand-drawn paper goods & garden-found accents. from start to finish, every element came together seamlessly in a light-hearted aura of warmth & welcome.

BEE KIND—RAW HONEY FAVORS SEND GUESTS HOME WITH SOMETHING SWEE T.

shares her golden wedding-worthy secrets for every element of your day.

treat your travelers

be mindful

WELCOME WAGON:

GUYS & GALS:

Don’t forget to make special arrangements for out-of-town guests. When it comes to making loved ones feel welcome, size and expense do not matter. From budget-friendly goodie bags to an all-out wedding eve bash, it’s the spirit of inclusiveness and thoughtfulness that counts. Never lose sight of what’s really important by remembering that the presence of those you hold dear is, ultimately, the best present they can give.

Respect your attendants’ time and resources. They will do their utmost to help you carry out your wedding plans, but that doesn’t mean they need to cater to your every whim. Be clear about your expectations and if you have particular assignments in mind. Set up “communication central” and be sure all parties can access it. While keeping everyone in the loop is critical, bombarding them with daily posts is excessive.

keep cool

social standards

FAMILY TIES:

#SPREADTHELOVE:

Work together to ensure that your in-laws feel comfortable and included. Whether you have married, single, or divorced parents, tact and diplomacy skills can be put to the test. The key is to plan and relay day-of details ahead of time–there should be no surprises on the big day. Arrange where the respective parents will be seated and brainstorm meaningful, unique ways to incorporate all into the celebration.

Social media is a great way to share memories and include long distance loved ones, but if you don’t want to see a sea of smartphones when you walk down the aisle, you’ll have to take action. Keep guests in the moment by establishing some guidelines. Post these on your wedding website, print it in your ceremony program, and ask your wedding party to help spread the word.

take a breather

trust your team

STEP BACK:

VENDOR LOVE:

You’ll need a break from all things “wedding.” A call, a chance to have dinner with your friends, or date night with each other without mentioning the “W” word is a good way to stay in touch with other parts of your lives. Whether it be a mani-pedi with your mom, or a football game with your dad, carving out time to spend together before the “I do’s” is essential. Declare some nights “wedding free” in advance so you can just kick back and relax.

Be considerate of your vendors, they aren’t mind readers. Be sure to communicate your wedding vision clearly–think photos, Pinterest boards, color swatches, or samples of things you like–so they can get an accurate sense of your style and bring your vision to life. Then, vow not to micromanage: you’ve hired professionals, so let them do what they do best.

live in the moment ! whatever surprises the day brings, just look at each other + laugh it away. if you’re smiling + happy, your guests will be too ! N O. 38
