Let's face it, your wedding dress weighs a lot more than you're used to dresses weighing. With a long train that make us trip and a layers of tulles that itches your legs all through pictures, a change of dress or dress style could be your saving grace to be comfortable for your wedding.

Think about getting a dress that you can bustle after your ceremoy so they it can feel more even on your body to maneuver through the crowd. Thinking of doing a few spins during your first dance? Consider making the dress easier to move in.

The celebration is going to continue all night. Are you sure you want to risk your once in your lifetime dress getting ruined on the dance floor? Get that breathable dress that you could partry all night long in!

The goal is to have fun all night while you celebrate the night you got married to your one and only. Yu should dress for the occasions. With so much happening, come prepared! Your guests will love the looks!

Shameless Plug: If you have a planner, this part can be a breeze!

But if you do not, one of the toughest vendors to choose is your venue. This is the one vendor that will be your starting point. Knowing what your venue offers, what availabiliy they have, if the pricing is aligned with your budget, what nuances you would need to plan around, if it aligns with your visions, what restricions they have... it really is the one the vendor that you'll watn to do the most research and the most comparison on.

Begin with your vision. Narrow down the amount of venues with what you actually falls within the realm of what you want your wedding to be like. Simplicity? Rustic? Urban?

Figure out your estimated guestlist. When you know about how many people you want to have, this will help you figure out which venues will be able to accomodate your group size comfortably.

Stick to your budget. Don't blow your wedding budget out of the park with your venue cost alone. Have a budget in mind of your overall wedding and see if your venue will make or break that budget!

Consider the mobility of venue for both you and your guests. If you're choose a large resort, you'll have to consider building in time or transportation for your elderly or guests who may have mobility issues - and don't forget those in heels! Getting you from one place to another may also be challenging. Bigger may not always be better in this case! (Unless you plan for it!)

What does your venue provide? Some venues are bare bones! You'll have to rent everything from chairs, tables, linen, lights and sometimes heating elements or fans.

Don't get discouraged when it comes to your venue! There's a venue for everyone's needs - sometimes you just have to get creative!

Not sure which food service style will be better for your wedding?

The first thing to consider is your vision. Is this to be an elegant affair or a more casual celebration?

Choosing a plated meal will require a bit more effort on your part to organize but it will come off as more elegant as there will be more details coupled with this idea.

Choosing a buffet meal will create a more relax feel and encourage guests to mingle among themselves in line and maybe viit tables they pass by on the way to the buffet. There are obviously more options for guests with a buffet and guests are in better control of choosing what they want to have.

Decide whether you want guests to feel pampered or if you want to have a food showcase. With either decision, you'll be creating an experience for your guest and they'll love the thought you put into it!

Where do begin with your wedding details? Here are some of the major events that you should be thinking of dependibg on what stage of the timeline you are at.

Weddings may differ depending on where you focus is but feel free to use this to begin your planning timeline.

Better yet, hire a planner so that they can make a custom planning timeline, budget and coordinate all the details for you!

07/09/2022

If you're struggling on deciding whether or not to invite a friend, coworker, or somsone's significant other, ask yourself these questions:

- Have you talked to this person within the last year?

- Do you have a close persnal/family connection with this person?

- Is it someone your parents would need there?

- Do they know your partner's name?

- Are your parents paying for the wedding?

- Will they make your wedding more fun?

- Is this someone you would normally buy dinner for?

Remember, it is your wedding. This is an intimate event. You are sharing all the joys and stories that you have of you and your partner and you'll want to surround yourself with only people will be celebrating these moments and will be someone you want watching your lives grow as a couple.

How much money is too much for a wedding? And what is going into your budget? Do you include the gifts to your bridal party? Your hair and make up gifts to the parents and wedding party?

Our rule of thumb is to always consider everything!

The worst case scenario is that you hit your budgeted amount faster, but it will force you to get creative faster and it may even save you money this way. Keeping yourself disciplined with a budget will keep you from having buyers remorse later.

When it comes to live music, you can't go wrong. people love to see entertainers reform and it brings a great deal of pizzazz to your wedding.

Imagine walking in to see a live band welcoming you versus a dj hidden in a corner. It give your wedding a touch of excitement!

This is not to day that a DJ cannot create the vibe your are looking for, but make sure that you communicate and hold your dj accountable for the energy you are looking for!

17/08/2022

Asking for cash gifts is the new trend, so don't fret! There are simple ways you can go about doing it.

1. Start a Honeyfund Account. Let's face it, even you wouldn't want to give people money if you didn't know where that money was going towards. Starting a HoneyFund account will help give your friends and family an idea of where you'll be using their money. Whether it's towards a honeymoon, a new home, starting a family, let your guests know a snippet of where that money is going and your loved ones will be more willing to give cash gifts!

2. Word of Mouth. Do not underestimate the power of word of mouth. People will begin to ask each other what they're going to buy for you as a wedding gift. Have your close friends and family know that you are looking to start a fund for your new home and it's the best gift that anyone could give them right now. Soon, your whole guestlist will know that this is what you're hoping to receive so their guess work can be skipped!

3. State it on your Website. Your website is a powerful tool to communicate with your guests. Use the page for gifts to thank your guests for their thoughtfulness and write a note about how you welcome a cash gift for your new home together as a couple.

4. Write a Poem with your Invite. This sounds cheesy but it's great! With your RSVPs and Save the Dates, add another card that says something along the lines of
""On this day, our special day
We do not know how to say
We have a house and contents too
So presents really wouldnโ€™t do
But if a gift youโ€™d like to bring
Then money would be just the thing.""

As for feeling bashful for asking for cash gift, don't worry! The trend is cash gifts now! You will rarely see guests lug a big gift to the wedding and expect YOU to lug it back out. Make it clear you welcome the money gifts and remember to thank everyone for their generousity!

๐Ÿ’ŸDo you intend on following the traditional wedding rhyme?๐Ÿ’Ÿ

If so what pieces will you be including? Please share in the comments below.

The mantra started as a Victorian-era rhyme. In that time, the โ€œsomething blueโ€ was usually a garter, and the blue and old items protected the bride against the Evil Eye, a curse passed through a malicious glare that makes the bride infertile. โ€œSomething borrowedโ€ was preferably the undergarment of a woman who already had children. Legend says that wearing this would confuse the Evil Eye into thinking the bride was already fertile, and the curse would be thwarted!

Get to decorating! Finding your florist is a big one! Having someone who can bring your vision to life is pretty darn important! We suggest to book them about 9 to 10 months out so that you can talk through the details and figure out what work for your wedding. Your florist can usually build your sweetheart table, ceremony and photo booth backdrop. They're a key player!

Can you imagine this display without the flowers?

Flowers make a huge difference in your wedding! Dressing up tables and creating fun levels will keep the wedding design interesting.

Remember, for big arrangements, you can always move them from your ceremony space to your reception guest tables, sweetheart table or even your buffet table!

Flowers and food always make a good pairing to me. ๐ŸŒธ

Which one are you thinking for your wedding?

If you're holding the bouquet, remember to match it with your dress(es). Some arrangement may be too loud, too wide or too small depending on the dress style.

Pick a few arrangement styles you'd like and consult your florist when making the final decision on which would be the bet fit for your wedding!

Phew. It's been a busy month full of weddings. Let's go back to admiring amazing work!

Check out the cakes by !! We found out about this gem of a baker during the beginning of the pandemic and absolutely fell for work.

It's takes a whole lot of dedication and creativity to become a cake artist. It's a wonder of ours how bakers keep up with the demand and laboring hours. We can't even bake one cake without starting to get tired...or without trying to taste everything.

But when you have a passion to make something beautiful and perfect for someone, it'll show. ๐Ÿ’•

Let's get some cake!

But how much should you expect to spend? Your average price per cake slice is $6. But once you begin to customize elements to your design, you can expect pricing to range from $7-12 per slice.

Tight on your budget? Consider a smaller ceremonial cake and having sheet cake that can be cut to make up for whoever your ceremonial cake doesn't feed!

There's nothing we love more than a beauitfully crafted, elegant cake. Still thinking you can get your friend to pick up your wedding cake? Let's not. Let the professionals who know cakes and are experienced in the transport to do it for you. Let thing you'd ever want to do is to ruin a design so perfectly molded just for your big day!!

This cake has so many things we love. Ruffles for texture. Hand-cut wafer paper leaves on the thinnest of wires for delicate movement. A bit of airbrushed shading for depth. Every detail, no matter how small, as important as the next!

When it comes to serving sizes for tiers, you'll be getting these estimates from your vendor.

If you remember from our previous slide with cake portions, you can see how each dimension can be portioned to serve a wide range of guests.

Leave room for portion cutting errors and cake waste. Cake could crumble while cutting and it could lessen the amount of pieces you may be able to serve!

Buttercream cakes are great for the classic, elegant or event rustic look. These cakes typically have beautiful piping designs on them and match most decor.

If you're doing something more creative, you'll want to look at fondant cakes so they're able to hold the shape or clean cut look you're going for. The world is your oyster when you're looking to design a fondant cake!

Just remember to save us some cake!

03/07/2021

Through all our years of being in the wedding and events industry, we have met so many cake and dessert vendors, so many bakers who started their own businesses and pushed for it to grow little by little.

Just like any other business, running a cake business is tolling. There is no way your business will survive if you aren't passionate about it. Bakers don't just throw things in a pan and heat it up. There are countless things they must worry about. The storage, delivery, temperature, sturdiness, caution, consistency, design, continued learning, marketing, accounting, food cost, cleanliness....do we have to go on?

We are thankful to have met a wonderful bunch of cakentrepreneurs who LOVE to create magic for others and their special days.

This feature is from . If you had been following her, you know how much personality, dedication and skills comes out in her work. She takes your vision and makes it a dream come true.

Each and every single cake is different and they all take many hours to perfect.

So the next time you wonder why your custom cake costs more than the Costco sheetcake (because they're all just "cake"), realize you're asking a creative genius to sculpt something unique for your big day.

WE LOVE YOUR WORK !! ๐Ÿ˜

Wedding Cake Tip #1 - Portion Size

Wedding cake isn't served into tradition triangular portions. When you have a professional cutting your cake, your portions will be served as rectangular piece due to the way the tiers are cut.

To calculate how many slices you might get, you can use the finger portion or dessert portion to estimate now much you'd like to order for your party size.

Just make sure to communicate that to whoever is cutting your cake!

(And save us a few dessert portions!! ๐Ÿ˜‹)
