Micro Weddings

First and foremost: don’t confuse a micro wedding for an elopement. Not The Same Thing. A properly executed micro wedding includes all the things you dream of in a standard traditional wedding, just on a much smaller scale. The defining attribute of a micro wedding is the guest list which includes no more than 50 individuals. The intimate size of a micro wedding allows you to use your wedding budget to its full potential. Spring for that full, lace-edged cathedral veil, the orchids you’ve always loved or those crab cakes from that one caterer that were to die for!

Weekday Weddings

You will be amazed at the venue choices available to you by making this one timeline adjustment! A Weekday wedding broadens the date options for your ceremony making those hard to book venues more viable. Many venues offer a mid week discount as well so make sure to ask about their weekday policies.

Welcome Bags

In the past Welcome Bags have been presented to out of town guests as a way to thank them for their travels but are making their way to the forefront as suitable gifts for all invitees. Welcome bags can include things like hand sanitizer, disposable masks, printed programs, chocolates, miniature champagne bottles, thank you notes or other assorted favors.

Tea Room or Bistro Style Receptions

Mismatched seating and strategically placed table sizes are a great way to fill a larger space while maintaining an elegant vibe. Use your imagination and mix it up. Variances in table sizes, chair styles, linens or dinnerware will come together to create an unforgettable backdrop for your celebration.

Reception Menu

Charcuterie boards are a highly popular trend that can be adapted to many reception styles. Serve your guests single-serve portions of delicious locally grown farm-to-table canapes or catered hors d’oeuvres and finger foods.

Ice Cubes. I said what I said. Ice cubes are being jazzed up with herbs, fruits, vegetables and edible flowers to add a little extra to your tables and we are over the moon for this trend! What an ingenious way to add color to your reception! Use as décor for your chilled wine or bottled water, infuse iced water with all the flavors of your garden or add them to your signature cocktail for a visual delight!

Comfort Food is becoming increasingly popular as a reception option. Think mini grilled cheese with tomato soup, tiny BLTs, french fries, yogurt parfait, warm biscuits, milk and cookies and cocoa stations.

All your friends had wonderful cakes for their weddings but you’re all caked out and the thought of your own no longer excites you. Shock and amaze your guests with a Cheese Wheel Cake! Super unordinary and quite the conversation starter, decorated layers of artisan cheeses will open a world of flavors for your guests!

Live Wedding Painting

The Artist's Brushes Painting by Gedda Runyon Starlin
The Artist’s Brushes Painting by Gedda Runyon Starlin

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and while you can trust that your family and friends will be able to produce from their iphones a plethora of candid images for your scrapbook, the inclusion of a Live Event Painter can provide a unique one-of-a-kind portrait of your day that will capture your memories in a way photography cannot.

Live Event Painters are experienced artists with their own individualistic technique, so when going in search of an artist make sure to view their work or galleries to see their painting style.  If you are unable to find someone local in your area, discuss your venue with your out-of-area artist of choice. You will find that many will travel to your wedding location.

Jane’s Place

Jane Davidian offers Live Wedding Portraits and Commissions through Jane’s Place Fine Art Gallery and Art School located at 2262 S. School Ave in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Eco Friendly Weddings

Maintaining a small carbon footprint during a wedding can be challenging. There are so many one-time use items associated with pulling off a beautiful affair, but there are several ways you can reduce, reuse and recycle throughout your celebration that will leave your space in the world just as lovely as you found it.

Wedding Invitations

Skip the ordinary invites and choose wedding stationary printed on Recycled or Plantable Papers. Plantable Papers come with seeds imbedded into the fibers, leaving your invited guests with a beautiful reminder of your Celebration to come.

Florals

The Outdoor Wedding has become increasingly popular and what better way to reduce the need for disposable florals by borrowing those already provided to us by Mother Nature herself?

Those beautiful ferns, ivies and blooms that are a must have for your nuptials become instantly more mobile when placed into decorative pots, vases or hanging baskets. Repurpose some of those lovelies by transferring them to your reception tables or food stations.

If your indoor florals aren’t movable consider decorating your tables with adorable potted succulents and mini floral vases to gift as favors to your guests and the end of the night.

Programs

Create a one-of-a-kind program to set up for your guests to view as they arrive. No need to print dozens of paper programs to be discarded or lost by the end of the night. Guests can snap a quick pic to commemorate the day on their social or to read at their leisure while waiting for your I Do’s. Coordinate that look with a menu board at your reception entrance.

Dinnerware and Linens

Plastic flatware and plates with paper napkins are convenient, but bins of discarded dinnerware everywhere will definitely have an impact on your earth friendly vibe. Ditch those one-time use items and explore rentable dinnerware and linens to create the perfect next level look for your reception!

If you’re having a minimony, consider serving your reception eats on vintage snack plates. These beauties are full of character and were designed for the classic brunch or tea party. An item of generations past they can often be found on ebay or in flea markets and in a multitude of patterns and colors. Reuse again and again for all your festive get togethers.

No Boring Bouquets

Choosing Bridal Florals can be fun, but what if you’re not vibing with those traditional bouquet images in the florist’s gallery? We jumped down the rabbit hole and collected some of the most non-traditional floral options on the internet to inspire your bridal vision.

Fan Bouquet

Far and beyond, our favorite was this unique fan bouquet by Danish floral designer Estilo Blomsterdesign. Delicate florals and pale greenery come together to create a stunningly modern look

Estilo Moderne Blomsterdesign

Dried Flowers

Dried Flowers are coming into play due to their muted earthy hues, longevity and budget friendly alternative to fresh florals. Dried flowers can last up to a year before loosing their charm while fresh cut florals have a 10-12 day life expectancy. Incorporate grasses, pinecones and other non-traditional elements of nature to make your wedding come alive!

Lanterns

Let your love light the way! Rustic and elegant, lantern bouquets have a natural charm about them. These lovelies shine with vibrant fall colors and could double as small table centerpieces for your reception.

Sola Wood Flowers

Sola Flowers are created with wood shavings from the bark of balsa or tapioca trees. Each flower is hand crafted into life and is 100% natural and sustainable. With proper care these bouquets will last for years to come.

Floral Parasol

The parasol has been in use for thousands of years so it seems only natural that we would adapt them to suit our social events. Whether held by the bride or her bridesmaids they will definitely bring smiles to all. Additionally, they’re just so fun to spin!

Bridesmaids hold parasols instead of flowers. Great for outdoor weddings!

Brooch Bouquet

Possibly the bouquet with the most feels. Brooch bouquets often include pieces from the bride’s family. Precious baubles worn by the bride’s mother or grandmother, settle in alongside the occasional tie pin from dad or grandpa. These pieces of love are included with an assortment of vintage and modern accessories to create a one-of-a-kind treasure that will always remind you of home.

Galentine’s Day

I always wonder if Amy Poehler realized the giant that was being unleashed when she introduced Galentine’s Day to the world back in 2010. Since that airing Galentine’s Day has gifted us with a universal time to celebrate the love we have for our BFFs. It’s the one day that allows us to say to all other obligations “Oh sorry, I cant do the 13th that’s Galentine’s and the girls and I are gonna zoom ( Zoom? ) around that night.” Life can take over average weekend plans but an official day with a name is prioritized!

So what can you do with your besties on Galentine’s during a pandemic? Lots of things! Create your own unique experience or try one of the ideas below.

Have a Movie Party! Teleparty (formerly Netflix Party) is a great way to have a socially distanced movie night with all your gal pals! Ready your favorite snacks, put your gals on zoom and settle in for a much needed girl night.

Choose a fun craft to explore! Purchase a premade DIY kit of a craft you’ve been dying to try and Facetime your progress with your best crafty sister. Compare your step-by-step and trade accomplishments as you experience them!

Custom select goodies from your favorite local patisserie to create a unique gift for each of your ladies. If your local bakery offers delivery for Valentine’s weekend have them individually delivered for a fun surprise!

Pajamas are perfectly cozy gal pal gifts that you can purchase pretty much anywhere. Send your girls matching sets for your movie party or just as a warm reminder of your unique bond.

Best Bridal Under $1000

According to The Knot, the average cost of a wedding gown in the US is $1600.

The price of a designer gown can vary widely and is determined by many things.

Corset Back Gowns

Dress: Morilee Lucia, Size 18

A corset back gown is a magical thing, so don’t let all those loops and lacings intimidate you. This style can typically be adjusted up or down a size through the waist and bust giving you a custom fit feel without the extra cost of alterations. It is especially a good option for strapless dresses or brides with a larger chest. The support you get from those laced-to-fit gowns rival even the best of undergarments giving you the confidence to flaunt those curves through the night free from the fear of a wardrobe malfunction. Today we are going to give you the run down of how to lace up one of these beauties. Trust us, if you’ve ever put new laces in your trainers you can conquer the corset back dress! The photos you’ll get on the day of your wedding with your mom or bestie lacing up your gown will be a memorable addition to that “Journey to the Aisle” scrapbook that make it all worth it.

Unique Wedding Favors

Wedding favors are a uniquely personal way to thank your guests for their attendance that goes one step beyond that of the traditional reception party. We found some unique momentos that we would absolutely remember to take home with us at the end of the night.

The gifting of special items to attendees dates back to the early Romans who gave honey-coated almonds to their guests. By the 15th century, confectioners were coating almonds in sugar or candy. These Italian candy covered creations became known as confetti. The natural bitterness of the almond, sweetened by their coatings, were said to symbolize both the good times and the hard times of married life.

HaroulasHappenings on Etsy

If nut allergies are a concern, have no fear!  There are many types of favors you can gift to your guests.

Coasters

Everyone loves playing with the pulp board paper coasters at restaurants, and more than a few of us have taken them home on occasion, so why not add a little fun to your own tables!  Personalized coasters can be a great way for everyone to remember your day, after the day.

Hand Sanitizer

‘Tis strange times we be living in and hence, the one thing we guarantee your guests will love is hand sanitizer.

Blue Wedding Trends

Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year is Classic Blue. There are many ways to include blue in your wedding whether its dressing your wedding party in the shade or through traditional gifts inspired by the “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue” rhyme of old.

Bridesmaid Dresses

Clothe your favorite girls in this beautiful hue. You can do the same dress in different shades of blue or make every dress the same color but mix up the styles. Each version of this is dreamy!

Tuxedos

Your groomsmen will look dapper in blue. Navy, cobalt, cornflower, and indigo! So many great options, you can’t go wrong!

To mix things up or take things to the next level, consider swapping in a blue microfiber shirt or gifting your groomsmen patterned socks.

Your Something Blue

We all know the saying surrounding weddings:

Something old, Something new. Something borrowed, Something blue.

These treasured items are gifted to the bride from dear friends and family to be carried or included in her wedding day attire.

The old, new, and borrowed bits are pretty easy to nail down but finding “Something Blue” that works with your bridal vision can be a bit tricky, but we did our research.

Here are a few “Something Blue” ideas that we have loved:

Embroidered sentiment inside the wedding gown.

Pay tribute to a parent that passed away by including a note or piece of their clothing in your dress.
