Top 8 Most-Forgotten Items for your Backyard Wedding

By |January 28th, 2015|

With each wedding we’re a part of, we always learn something new and make a mental note (or actual note) so we don’t forget for next time. It’s usually minor things – like unwrap the tin of Altoids from the plastic before placing it in the groomsmen pews at church – but when we first started out, they were sometimes slightly more important things. We always found a quick solution, but it never hurts to have it taken care of in advance.

Last year, we compiled a Rental Checklist of just about everything you could possibly need for your tented or backyard wedding. But here are the top eight items that are usually forgotten – in one way or ano […]

Creative Spotlight: Forget-Me-Not Vintage Rentals

By |January 21st, 2015|

Vintage rentals are a relatively new thing when it comes to wedding day decor, especially in the Eastern PA area. We’ve always seen companies that allow you to rent standard tables, chairs, linens and so on but vintage rental companies give you the opportunity to rent those killer sofa, tables, chairs, and other amazing decor that are FULL of character, charm and history.

We met Renee and Derek of Forget-Me-Not Vintage Rentals this year on a wedding we worked on together in May. Renee was always very quick to respond, stay incredibly organized and was just a pleasure to work with. One of my favorite things about FMNVR was their willing […]

We’ve been awarded WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award 2015 – and just what that means.

By |January 14th, 2015|

A few short days ago, we received an email letting us know that we were the proud recipients of WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award for 2015. Happy dance time!

This is ultimately “award season” for my fellow wedding vendors and I, but unlike the Oscars, these awards are usually based off of something much different – which can be deceiving to a couple who is looking for their perfect team of vendors.

If you follow any wedding vendors on social media, you may have been seeing a buzz about WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award and The Knot’s Best of Weddings. You may also see these badges on websites, email signatures, and store front windows – among other places. What isn’t fully disclosed is how these awards are distributed and that’s what I want to talk just a little bit about.

Our Favorite BHLDN Coverups

By |December 17th, 2014|

I will always swoon over a beautiful bride but nothing tugs at my heart quite like a stylish bolero. BHLDN coverups, capes, jackets, boleros, capelets, toppers – whatever you want to call them – are always incredibly stunning and graciously sweet. They are perfect if you’re looking to add a little modesty to your strapless gown, need to have your shoulders covered for your ceremony or just want some extra layers.
Here are four of my current favorites:

Creative Spotlight: Simply Designed

By |December 10th, 2014|

About five years, when we were just spreading our blooms in the wedding world, I stumbled upon an amazing designer and now-friend, Heather Long of Simply Designed. Simply Designed is a stationery design company who completely kicks butts, in our opinion. Heather gives the utmost of care and attention to her clients when working with them on their invitations, Save-The-Dates, menu cards, programs, place cards, thank you cards, and more. She walks you through each step and is always making sure you have plenty of time for shipping and mailing. I love her work so much that she did our holiday cards this year – so keep an eye out if you’re a clie […]
