Less Conventional

I started to feel a little bit guilty after reading my last post on my friend’s wedding disaster and want to clear it up a little bit. I really hope I didn’t sound like I was talking down to anyone who might not be able to afford a beautiful destination wedding like mine and I cannot stress that enough. I also don’t want to come off like I am super rich or anything like that.

I am a wedding planner, remember? I have been saving up for my special day since I got my first job working in a local grocery store as a bagger :) Not everyone has the means to go all out for a wedding and not everyone has been thinking about their wedding day for pretty much their entire lives so I really apologize if that last post sounded arrogant in any way.

The Less Conventional the Better!

So keeping that in mind, I have had more and more clients coming to me with less conventional ideas for their wedding and I think they really are starting to take over classic styles of weddings. Which I think is great!

I am seeing more concepts along the lines of the picture above and I am all for it. No one wants to go to a boring wedding and making it unique not only lightens up the mood of the entire wedding, it makes sure to give all of your guests a unique experience that they certainly won’t forget!

It’s the Little Things

Alright so remember the friend I had before who had to call for a little bee problem she had and had to call these guys before her wedding?

Well, while it is obvious to take care of any problems like bees potentially stinging your guests during your ceremony, little touches can make or break a wedding and I thought I’d share a few that I thought really helped make our wedding special.

Think out of the Box

If you read any of my earlier posts on my wedding, you remember that my husband and I left out selfie stick on every table and encouraged people to go crazy with them. It has always been a common thing to leave disposable cameras on the tables of weddings but that is kind of getting to the point of being outdated and a selfie stick is something fun that we obviously let our guests take home which can go a long way.

You wouldn’t believe how many people took the time to let us know how great of an idea these selfie sticks were and how much fun they had with them. We saw kids as young as 7 and adults as old as 70 with these selfie sticks just having the time of their lives with them and it was something that we haven’t seen done before.

There’s obviously more I could talk about that I’ll get into next time :)
