Your wedding is nothing short of a beautiful statement for you and your spouse!

Decorating your table setting and meal can be a fun and creative experience. However, it’s not always easy to know what goes where or how to place it all.

Your place setting is the first thing your wedding guests notice when they sit down at your reception.

Regardless of whether you have more casual wedding or a more formal wedding (backyard or not), the place settings and reception tables make a statement. Plus, they can truly help pull together the theme of the day.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the myriad of choices when it comes to your wedding table settings. Choosing the right place settings for your wedding is a task that requires patience and care.

To help you create the perfect place setting for your wedding, we put together a guide to stay on brand and give your tables some added flair!

When planning a backyard wedding, entertainment is key. 🔑
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember entertainment can be a huge investment for any event. 🤑

So before you book a more expensive option like a live band, be sure that it is what your guests & YOU truly want.

If you don’t think your guests will dance the night away, this can be an easy thing to avoid and save money.💃

One of the perks of having a backyard wedding is being able to keep it intimate. 🥰
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having a backyard wedding will naturally limit your guest list in most situations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Inviting too many people to your wedding will increase the price across the board, especially with food.🍿
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Inviting just the people who mean the most to you and who you want in attendance is a great way to keep your backyard wedding on a budget.

Travel tip Tuesday!

If you’re traveling solo to multiple destinations it’s a good idea to have a few people that know your itinerary aside from your travel agent.

I recommend sending your flight and accommodation information to a few friends and family members and checking in with them regularly throughout your trip. ❤️

But if only everyone knew the truth...which is that working with someone who does what I do is actually a cheaper and more secure option. 📋

I'm virtually roaming the beautiful streets of the South of France this Sunday morning, pretending I’m off to a market to buy some lovely local produce. 🧀🍇

Want to know a secret? It pays to indulge in a Caribbean escape.🏝
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Invest a little more and everything from the piña coladas at the swim-up bar to the service at your poolside cabana will be that much better!🍹
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s not to mention amenities like infinity pools with sea views, five-star restaurants, and private butlers. If you’re ready to treat yourself, there are plenty of luxury options to choose from!

Who’s ready to escape to paradise? ☀️

Do you have a dream vacation or adventure on your bucket list?

Something crazy and out of this world big?

If money and time (and Covid) were no object I’d be hopping on the plane to the South of France to sip wine and eat cheese and enjoy the beautiful rolling countryside.

What about you? What is your dream getaway?

If you’re dreaming of a Destination Wedding you aren’t alone! 🏝

What could be more romantic than jetting off to a far flung destination, with the love of your life, your family and closest friends to say I do?❤️

If you’re stuck and staring down at your to do list wondering how you’ll get all of your loved ones on a plane and in one location, ditch the list, and the planning and leave the work up to me instead. 📋

I can help with choosing your destination, making the travel arrangements for everyone in your group, and getting you in touch with on-site staff or the right outside vendors to make your wedding day one of your friends and family will be raving about for years to come!

It’s all in the details. Having unique details that pop from your guests tables that are unique to your wedding style can make a huge difference to your overall look on wedding day. A small attention to detail can go a long way! Photography by @ashleyboyan Wedding Styling by @thewhimsicalrose Florals by @springvine
