wedding wednesday: groomsmen gifts

Happy Wednesday!

With the cold weather and engagement season in full swing I have been in total wedding mode lately- Pinterest, meetings and crafts have taken over my life but I have to say- I absolutely love it!

I’ve been chatting (and writing) a lot about entertaining, decor, recipes etc. And although men probably benefit of the recipes.. I don’t want them to feel left out! So today’s wedding wednesday is for the boys! (and maybe for the girls since you will probably be doing some of this shopping).

Groomsmen gifts can be a little tricky so I collected a few of my favourite ideas for you!

I love these personalized cufflinks- in my mind wedding party gifts are all about adding a personal touch and making those close to you feel extra special- this gift does that perfectly!

Boat shoes! What a great gift, these are the perfect show for everyman

Every man needs a great wedding/survival kit. A tie, some whiskey, a cigar and some steak spice is pretty much all they need!

I’ve got so many more, I may have to do part 2 🙂

happy planning! wishing you all a wonderful day

wedding wednesday: cake toppers

Hi everyone!

Remember these traditional cake toppers?

Traditional-Wedding-Cake-Toppers

These are long gone and couples are going for more creative ways to top their cakes.

Today is a Wedding Wednesday post and I am sharing with you a trend that I love right now.

Although many couples are choosing cake alternatives such as pie bars, candy bars, cupcakes, macaroon towers etc. Cakes are still trending and these unique toppers are so much fun.

Whether it be theme related, monogrammed or florals, these modern, personal touches to the traditional dessert make them that much yummier!

thanks for stopping by, wishing you all a wonderful day!

5 reasons to hire an event planner

Happy Saturday everyone!

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. Whether you are taking some time to yourself to relax or out and about getting things done, enjoy it!

December is the most popular month for engagements- 60% of engagements happen over the holiday season (crazy right??)

Being in the events industry, January is a very busy month connecting with new clients and following up with those who are already booked. I love working smaller events; intimate weddings, baby showers, engagement parties, milestone birthdays, cocktail parties etc. I have a passion for working closely with the client to create a memorable celebration.

For those who are recently engaged or planning a special celebration, here are my top 5 reasons why you should hire an event planner:

1. We go through a step by step process to ensure your event is entertaining and the details are taken care of.

2. We work for you to make sure things happen on time, on budget and within the theme. We are up to date on trends and we’re usually filled with ideas.

3. We keep you on track and organized. Planning can get overwhelming- it’s not for everyone so sometimes it’s best to leave it up to those in the industry. We often have tips, tricks and connections to give you a different perspective on issues.

4. If and when a problem arises, an event planner can most often take care of it without the guests or host being aware.

5. Most of the time we know the vendors. People are more likely to remember an event where things went wrong (ex: the dj didn’t show up, caterer was horrible) and that’s not the type of memories you want your guests to walk away with!

You want to enjoy this special time with friends and family and we make sure that happens 🙂

cupcakes

Good morning everyone

Today is a Wedding Wednesday post!

Cupcakes have been a popular alternative to wedding cakes for a little while now. I love the idea of using dessert variations instead of a traditional wedding cake. It’s a nice way to get creative and make your event unique.

For those of you who are interested in this trend or who just want a good recipe- here is some inspiration!

First, some pretty designs

champagne

Happy Friday Everyone!

Life has been crazy busy this week- December is just around the corner and everyone is starting to prepare for the holidays.

In regards to weddings and events-I have been seeing a comeback for champagne and gold- it’s a nice alternative to the burlap, rustic look that is so popular right now.

I was part of the set up for a wedding in August that has this color palette- it was such a romantic look!

this look can be dressed up or dressed down- i love that!

I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. Today’s post is all about feathers! This trend is so unique because it is modern yet soft and elegant. I did a January wedding last year which had feather accents and it was beautiful.
