>> QUAINT CHARACTER & MODERN REFINEMENT COMBINE TO MAKE THE INN AT WESTON A PICTURE—PERFECT NUPTIAL RETREAT. HOMESPUN ELEGANCE: Nestled in the quintessential Vermont village of Weston, the Inn is a romantic sanctuary replete with colonial grace. This classic New England bed and breakfast invites you to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. From the charming gazebo and gardens, to the warm and welcoming interiors adorned with period decor, this Green Mountain gem proves to be the ideal nuptial destination. Tie the knot in a place where old-fashioned hospitality meets modern comfort. Six acres of manicured lawns are the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony, followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride and bridal party portraits before a nearby waterfall. After the “I do’s,” you and your loved ones will enjoy all that Southern Vermont has to offer. The Inn provides the best of both worlds for relaxed and adventurous guests alike. The town’s center is just steps away, while Okemo Mountain Resort and national forests are just a short car ride for outdoor enthusiasts itching to explore.

ASHLEY’S ADVICE: “ANYTHING GOES! MAKE YOUR DAY YOUR OWN. WHETHER IT’S A NON—TRADITIONAL CEREMONY, OR A BACKYARD BRUNCH IN LIEU OF AN EVENING DINNER PARTY, MAKE ‘I DO’ DECISIONS THAT ARE UNIQUELY YOU.” wedding echoed the lavish character of a parlor party with a hint of modern

refinement. gilded touches popped against a striking palette of ivory & ebony, while cream blooms & warm candlelight maintained the design’s soft, feminine aura. from start to finish, every element of the celebration reflected the newlyweds’ romantic taste.

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. 50

NOTES + TIPS

*

>> MAKE YOUR PLANNING PROCESS A PIECE OF CAKE WITH TIPS & TRICKS FROM INDUSTRY VET BELINDA NORRIS EVENTS. when it comes to weddings, belinda norris is one of the best in the biz. boasting decades of coordination &

design experience, she offers brides & grooms unparalleled services with a personalized touch.

[1] MEET YOUR MATCH: when it comes to picking your planner, “trust

your instincts.” select a pro who not only offers amazing services within your budget, but also shares your likes, sensibilities & style. “work with someone who will advocate for you & shares the same big picture vision of your event as you do.”

[2] EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED: having a solid plan b is essential. whether it be inclement weather–outdoor “i do’s” in new england are always a toss up!–or a backup playlist for your debut into the reception, work with your coordinator to come up with some day-saving alternatives. whatever curve balls come your way, remember what matters most– marrying the love of your life. [3] FAMILY AFFAIR: “find a way to involve loved ones in the festivities. after all, the union of your lives–& families–is what the wedding is all about.” invite your sister to officiate, let your brothers take the mic as you make your entrance, or ask mom & dad to make a toast. whether it be traditional or unconventional, including your family members will make your day perfectly personal.

[4] DIY, DO OR DON’T?: “always have one project that has your signature,

it will make your day-of details all the more special.” select a crafty task that fits into your schedule. super busy? host a bridesmaids’ bonding weekend to make your seating chart. feeling artistic? design your invitations, but hand off the envelopes for someone else to address.

[5] COST SAVVY: when it comes time to lay out your budget, “always

your

NOTES & IDEAS.

include a contingency.” overestimating your spending from the get-go will prepare you for any unexpected extras, & save some headaches down the road. the beauty of the contingency? “it is money that can be spent, or not spent.” either way you’ll feel like you’re coming out on top.

[6] MARK YOUR CALENDARS: “when it comes to your timeline, anything goes!” if you’re aiming for a sought-after celebration site, you’ll want your major players–venue, florist & caterer–booked at least nine months out from your “i-do” date. working with a shorter planning period? no sweat! the elements you care about most will come together.
