Tips For A Fabuluxe Tented Affair

Tips For A Fabuluxe Tented Affair

Tips For A Fabuluxe Tented Affair

Karen Moore of KYM Signature – A Savannah Premier Wedding Planner discuses Tips For A Fabuluxe Tented Affair

Last Sunday, I posted some great information on using tents for your reception. Today, I will pick up where I left off. Giving you four awesome tips that will result in fabuluxe tented affair.

A tent reception can be an exceptionally beautiful and unique experience for the bridal couple as well as their guests. The variety and sizes of tents that are available today make finding something that fits your personal style easy and affordable. Clear top tents let you dance beneath the starlit sky and flat top frame tents provide you with an open and welcoming feel without supporting poles blocking the way. You can choose a tent without sides or one with French window sidewalls. Whatever tent you select, you will need the right lighting, flowers, fabrics and favors to make it a gorgeous oasis for your guests.

  1. Use Lighting to Create Drama

The lighting of your reception tent is extremely important. By using some simple tricks, you can create an elegant escape or a fun and festive celebration. Twinkle lights, in white or colors, are often used in tent receptions; hidden in garlands, draped along ceiling panels, or strung in plants and shrubs. Other lighting options include spotlights with colored gels that create dramatic patterns on walls, floors or ceilings. For those who want a classic, romantic feel, candles create a dreamy and mysterious ambiance that could be just the right touch. A plethora of candle holders are available and make wonderful centerpieces. Blinking balloons can create a fun and casual tone to your event that your guests will love. Whatever your style, lighting is an important factor in creating the right atmosphere for your reception.

  1. Bring Nature Indoors

Through the aid of well-placed flowers, trees and shrubs, your guests may be able to forget they are even in a tent. Fill corners with beautiful flowering shrubs or trees. Disguise support poles with vines and bouquets. Add fragrance with elaborate floral centerpieces. A nice twist on the traditional cut flowers for the table is to have a living arrangement that your guests can take home and plant in their garden or keep in the house, a continuous reminder of your special day. Flowers can add color and excitement to your event with a subtlety that your guests will surely appreciate.

  1. Surround Yourself with Sumptuous Satins

In order to really transform a reception tent, creative use of fabrics is essential. From luxurious panels draped across the ceiling to tantalizing tulle-adorned support poles, fabrics can create depth and contrast to the harsh lines of the tent. Soften doorways by swathing them in flowing chiffon. Emphasize your head table with curtains of lace as a backdrop. Evaluate your tent and accentuate the highlights while downplaying any possible negative aspects. With a little imagination, you can create a completely unique and ethereal feeling for your reception.

  1. Finish with Wedding Favor Flair

Complete your décor with corresponding favors that complement the surrounding motif. Very often, a well thought out favor can be the final touch needed to create a cohesive design for your reception, uniting the various elements around them. Whatever theme you use for your reception, you can use favors to heighten your guests’ experience.

With these simple techniques, you can create a magnificent venue for your reception. However, don’t forget the little details, too. Think about if you need flooring for the entire tent or just the dance floor. Are there any sound ordinances in the area that might affect your party? Do you have enough parking and restrooms for your guests? Do you have enough power for the caterers, musicians, and lighting? Is there a contingency plan in case of extremely bad weather? Once you have answered these simple questions and created your own design plan, you will have a wonderful reception that is uniquely your own that your guests will absolutely adore.

Choosing A Non-Traditional Venue For Your Wedding Ceremony

Choosing A Non-Traditional Venue For Your Wedding Ceremony

There are many weddings that are held outside of traditional religious facilities. These locations can offer a great, unique occasion that shows off a bit of your personality and style as well as giving your guests a fun time to remember.

KYM Signature | WeddingNothing is nicer than having an outdoor wedding, if the weather cooperates. This is never a guarantee, however, and people planning to have an outdoor wedding should have a backup facility in case of inclement weather. There should also be information on where the ceremony will be held in the event that the ceremony needs to be moved indoors due to weather.

An outdoor ceremony should take place in an area where there is abundant shade. The wedding party will be standing up for the entire ceremony, and heat can take its toll in the summer months. Too much heat can also be detrimental to any older guests attending the ceremony.

Remember as well that you will have to arrange for a seating, a sound system, and decorations to be provided at the outdoor location, so a dry run will be important to determine needs as far as electrical cords and seat placement.

Large houses can be an ideal place for a non-traditional wedding ceremony, so long as you are ensured of adequate space. Courtroom weddings are rarely affairs in which a large number of guests will take part, but you will want to ensure that there is available seating for those who do wish to attend.

Destination weddings are a great and memorable way to hold your special day, if they fit within your budget. Destination weddings can also offer some opportunities in terms of convenience as they offer the opportunity to be held right at the location of your honeymoon. They can also be a very special part of the occasion, as most of the time you will not be able to spend time with the friends and family who attend your wedding.

A destination wedding allows for the entire party to be together over a period of several days, with lots of time to visit. Remember that you may have to make an additional trip to have final approval over the ceremony venue. You will also want to make sure there are very clear directions to the venue’s location on the invitations.

For some originality, why not consider a less traditional venue for your wedding ceremony? These suggestions are all ideal for smaller weddings and might even save you some money in the long run!

Seven Easy Tips And Ideas For A Stress-Free Wedding

Seven Easy Tips And Ideas For A Stress-Free Wedding

Seven Easy Tips And Ideas For A Stress-Free Wedding

Men and women seem to want different things when it comes to the overall makeup of their weddings, but everyone can agree that a wedding should be a day you remember for the rest of your life. Make sure you’re planning a day worth remembering by using the wedding tips in this article.

It is a nice gesture to provide wedding favors for everybody, and depending on the size of your wedding and your allotted budget, there are some wallet friendly ideas out there. It can sometimes be more economical to purchase a gift that is high quality as opposed to many small things to fill a favor bag. Items that are a great example of this would be: stationery set, gift certificates, teacup and saucer set, mugs or a box of chocolates. This ensures that you provide a gift for everyone, while still saving some money.

Regardless of whether you are going into a wedding with issues or have the perfect relationship, seek out premarital counseling. Counseling can help increase the chance of having a successful marriage and will teach you a lot of tips that you can put into practice before, during, and after your wedding.

Being the bride of the wedding, you know you will have to stay in your wedding gown for hours upon end. Knowing this before hand, it is of utmost importance that you make sure it is comfortable and doesn’t have anything that will irritate you after hours. Otherwise, you will be miserable for the entire evening!

Make sure that you never plan your bachelor or bachelorette parties the day before the wedding. There may be a lot of drinking at these parties, and the last thing that you will want to do is ruin the day of your wedding because you are not fully functional. Have a calm day right before your wedding.

Stick together as much as possible during your day. This wedding is about the two of you joining your lives together. Do not let the pressure of trying to spend time with everyone at the gathering keep you apart. Relax, go with the flow and walk among your guests together as a couple and enjoy each other as much as you can in your special moment.

If you are having an outdoor wedding, make sure you have a backup plan in case of bad weather. Ideally, you should also have a nearby indoor location that can be accessed at a moment’s notice. Another option you have is to rent a party tent that is big enough to cover your entire wedding party and all of your guests comfortably. Don’t get caught out in the rain.

A wedding is a huge event that most people take extremely seriously, even though the atmosphere is ultimately going to be whimsical and romantic. It’s always a great idea to seek some outside advice for your wedding, and using the tips you’ve read here can help you lighten the load for your big day.

Kiss Tips For The Newly Engaged Couple

Kiss Tips For The Newly Engaged Couple

Keep It Sweet & Simple (KISS) Tips For The Newly Engaged Couple

Becoming engaged is a time you and your partner will remember forever; it can be overwhelming while marvelous and exciting.

Below you will find some tips and suggestions for you during the hectic months to come:

  • It can be difficult to compromise with one another. Each of you may have different ideas; but the important thing to remember is meeting each other half way.
  • Communicating with your partner is the key to any relationship; make sure to listen to each other. That way you both know that your opinion does matter.
  • While planning your wedding you should try to set a date for every second week that has nothing to do with planning your big day. That way you two can just focus on each other without all the excitement of your wedding.
  • Get to know your partners family, after all they are going to be your future in-laws. Learning about your fiancés relatives is a great way to grow as a couple.
  • Have priorities when it comes to planning your wedding; make sure that when you both are setting out your schedule that you are taking into account the more critical things verse the more easier tasks. Setting a timeline can be very beneficial.
  • Keep in mind that it is up to only you two to plan your wedding day – what the cake will be like, who your band will be, what your china looks like, these are things that are all up to you two and no one else.
  • It is important for you and your fiancé to seek pre-marriage advice. You need to make sure that you both understand each other’s view on your future.
  • Remember what is most important. Weddings are never just about the two of you (the honeymoon is!) That being said, take into consideration that you will need to learn how to work and cooperate with family members, the annoying cousins, or his/her charming but callous best friend. For what its worth, at least you can look back and say that you had made the best of “those” moments of your life.

Lastly, remember that you are no longer going to be a me, but a we. Some topics that will need to be discussed before marriage are: personality differences, sexual expectations, and most of all money. Finances have made and broken families and life time partners, all because there was no established mutual agreement to begin with; that or setting unrealistic standards for each other.

8 Questions You Must Ask a Wedding Professional Before Booking Them

8 Questions You Must Ask a Wedding Professional Before Booking Them

8 Questions You Must Ask a Wedding Professional Before Booking Them

Hiring the right team is critical to planning your dream wedding…and it can also be quite stressful. How do you find the right match for you?  How do you know who to trust?  Where do you go for advice?

First of all, this is not an easy task and it’s totally normal for couples to feel overwhelmed, frustrated or confused.  It’s not like you plan a wedding every day!  This is all probably brand new to you, so be patient with yourself.

Here are a few tips to finding the wedding professional that is just right for you…

  • Do Your Homework.  You’ll get much more out of a meeting or conversation with a wedding professional if you do a little background homework first. Spend some time on the internet or talking to friends who’ve recently been married.  Find out the average prices in your area and what services are available.  Get an idea of what you like and don’t like.  Wedding websites and chat rooms can be a great resource.  This way when you meet with a wedding professional you’ll be able to ask better questions and have an idea of what to look out for.
  • Meet With Them.  An in person meeting is the best way to interview a potential wedding vendor.  It lets you get the full experience of their personality, style and professionalism.  If that’s not possible, have a phone conversation.
  • Ask Questions.  There are no stupid questions!  Make sure you get clear, specific answers to your questions. If you aren’t sure what something means, ask them to clarify. Keep asking questions until you completely understand.

If a wedding vendor has a problem with you asking questions, they probably aren’t the one for you.  The best wedding professionals are patient, understanding and take the time to help you make the best choices for your wedding.

  • Listen.  Don’t just hear the words they say, really listen.  Watch the vendor’s body language.  Are they confident and comfortable with their response?  Do they look and sound nervous?  Do you get a “funny feeling” about them?  Take all the sights, sounds and feelings into account along with their responses; if your gut tells you something isn’t right, it probably isn’t.
  • Check References.  Portfolios are hand-picked to show off the best work, but they may not represent the “average” wedding performance.  Videos are edited for the optimum presentation.  But real referrals from satisfied clients are hard to fake.

Call up both client and professional references.  Ask questions and use those listening skills.  Even if they give a rave review, you’ll often be able to “read between the lines” if there were any issues or problems. Ask around and search the internet for reviews.  Check the Better Business Bureau for any outstanding complaints against the business.  Weigh all of this information into your choices.

Here are 8 Must Ask Questions to ask ALL your potential wedding professionals before booking:

  1. How many weddings do you do per year? How much experience do you have? This is an extremely important question.  Ideally, your wedding professional should have ample experience specifically with weddings.  Not only will they be more skilled in their craft, this also makes them a valuable source of information and ensures that your wedding day goes smoothly.
  2. How much do you cost? Price is often relative, especially when you factor in experience, reputation and expert skill. Generally, the most talented professionals have a higher price tag because they are worth it.
  3. How much is the deposit?
  4. What specifically is included in that cost? Because packages often vary, it’s likely that you won’t be able to compare one vendor exactly to the next without doing a little figuring. The lowest cost isn’t necessarily the best deal; some higher quotes include services that you have to pay extra for in other packages.  Make sure you take this into account.
  5. What happens if I cancel? What happens if you cancel? Find out if your deposit is refundable under any conditions.  Does the wedding professional have a back up plan if something happens to them?
  6. Do you use a contract? If the answer is No, RUN! A contract is designed to protect both you and the wedding professional.  Don’t settle for a verbal agreement that won’t hold up in court.
  7. Are there any additional fees? Taxes, service charges and travel fees can add up quickly. Make sure you understand exactly what is included and if there are any other fees you’ll have to pay.  This should be clearly defined in your contract.
  8. Do you carry liability insurance? The answer you’re looking for here is Yes. This protects you in case an unfortunate accident should occur on your wedding day.  It’s also a sign that this is a reputable business, since most “fly by night” operations don’t invest in insurance.

Congratulations!

Did your he pop the question over the holidays? Though only 7 percent of Americans decide to get married in December, 16% percent of couples become engaged. If you are sporting shiny new bling on your left ring finger, FABULOUS!  It’s now time to get to work planning your dream wedding.

As the engagement high starts to wear off, the task of actually planning the biggest event of your life may seem a little daunting (no pressure). There are hundreds of details that go into planning a wedding of any size so where does a bride-to-be begin?

My name is Karen and I’m your wedding planning angel. I’m here to get you started and pointed in the right direction. Let’s get started shall we?

First Things First

  • Call Your Relatives  – Engagement DOs and DON’Ts start almost the second you say yes. Your first task? Sharing the exciting news with the world. And how easy would it be to do so in 140 characters or fewer or with a quick status update? No matter how tempting, it’s an engagement no-no to not pick up the phone and call your family members and friends. All of them. No one likes to be the last to know—and getting the news via mass e-mail, Twitter update or Facebook is especially rotten. So set aside a few hours and plow through your phone book (you can enlist your mom, sister, aunt or another family representative to help you out).
  • Set a Date—Even If It’s Not the Date – After “congratulations” and “let me see your ring,” here’s the first thing people will ask: “When’s the wedding?” It’ll save you lots of headaches if the two of you come up with a vague-yet-specific answer, like “We’re shooting for early 2018” or “We like the idea of next fall.” People appreciate feeling like they’re in the loop, and they’ll also put the event into their mental datebooks. Plus, it’ll give you and your guy a little direction as you start planning.
  • Visualize(a Lot) – Get a bunch of wedding magazines, watch Father of the Bride for feel-good tears, look at maps for honeymoon ideas, and blog-stalk engagement sites. Give yourself permission to let your brain turn into its own wedding channel. If you haven’t been planning your wedding since you turned five, that’s OK; now’s a good time to collect ideas that inspire you and to learn what you want—and don’t want—in your wedding.
  • Plan a Night Out With Just Your Fiancé – Until the celebrations and parties and wedding are finally over, there’s not going to be much “just the two of you” moments. Get in some good face time with each other now—and make it a point not to talk wedding details. Yes, there’s a ton to do, but for now, it’s perfectly OK to hit the town and celebrate—just you and him.
  • Hire A Wedding Planner/Coordinator – Review the elements of your wedding that’ll take a little planning—negotiating with bakers and caterers for the best prices, finding the ideal venue, organizing party favors—and figure out if those are tasks you want to tackle alone or if you’d rather hire a wedding planner (stress reduction and a little time-saving sounds nice, right?). Keep in mind that a wedding coordinator will cost extra money, so make sure the option fits into your budget.
  • Start a Wedding Savings Account – Remember that even a simple, small wedding costs money (and sometimes a lot more money than you would ever imagine). A wedding savings account is an easy way to keep cash accumulating for the big day, so you don’t have to rely on plastic to bear the brunt later on. Open a basic savings account at any bank—or look online for higher-interest accounts at sites like ally.com and etrade.com—then deposit a set amount every paycheck that’ll go toward wedding-related expenses only.
  • Ask Your Parents (and His) for Their Ideal Guest Lists – Before you start putting a number on how many guests you want, it’s time to ask both your parents about whom they’d most want to invite. Be sure to tell them this is just a preliminary list and things might change—it’s on paper, not set in stone. After you have their “dream” lists, you can add and edit and trim. Helpful hint: Ask them to help prioritize their wish list by breaking it into tiers—it’ll help you make cuts later on.
  • Chill Out and Have Fun! – Take time to relax—get a massage, sleep in when you can. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event purely about you and your fiancé. You are allowed to enjoy it!

Let’s Get Organized:

  • Bookmark this SiteBookmark it in your browser or save it right to the home screen of your iPhone or iPad for easy access.
  • Purchase A Wedding Planner Binder – Get an iPhone app, a datebook, a calendar or some other kind of keep-organized device to help you create a timeline for major wedding-related tasks.
  • Purchase KISSThe Keep It Simple Method of Wedding Planning – Super Simple Wedding Tips, Ideas, Advice & Basic Know-How From An Industry Leader
  • Create a Wedding Website – Now that you’ve told everyone the good news (on the phone, missy—see step No. 1), set up a wedding site or blog to keep everyone apprised of your nuptial news. Post photos, write your “how we met” story, have a guestbook—make it as personal and interactive as you want. Get the bare bones up first; later on, you can get fancy with wedding details, hotel advice, maps, quizzes, daily thoughts and whatever other wedding whimsies you want to share. Send it around to those who ask, but be prepared for the fact that your mom and your BFF may be the only ones who want to read it.
