Happy New Year ladies and gents! We are SO EXCITED for another year working with the best brides in Arizona (yeah, we said it.) Our brides are some of the most courageous, selfless and beautiful humans I have ever gotten to know and they have blessed this past year immensely. We typically spend a little over a year with our brides learning about their dreams, hopes and fears for their wedding day and the future. We feel so incredibly lucky to have that relationship with our brides and some of those worries and fears have helped us write this post. So, here it is. If you are a bride in 2016, here are our wedding planning hopes for you!
Fall is in the air! Can you feel it? I can as I’m sitting on my patio writing this in a sweater. A sweater. In Arizona. Finally! I don’t know about you but fall weddings just feel so cozy and romantic. I mean, who wouldn’t want to say “I do.” under a tree filled with crisp, Autumn leaves and snuggle with your new husband by the fire on your honeymoon? Yes, all the yes. So, now that we have you hooked on a fall wedding, let’s chat colors. Many of our fall brides are concerned about color palettes that are too representative of the season and may feel out of place while looking at the photos in the dead heat of July. Fear no more! Today we have brought you our top classic Autumn palettes.
We have all read the blog posts, “35 smart ways to save money on your wedding” or “How to throw a great wedding for under $ (fill in the blank). But, when you open it up, so many times it’s filled with impractical, unrealistic and seriously crazy ideas. For those brides who love grandma but don’t want to walk down the aisle in her old dress listening to auntie carol Dj, holding a bouquet thats falling apart….this is for you.
If you could guess the number one thing I get asked about the most as a wedding planner in Scottsdale, what would you figure it would be? Questions on vendors? What about design or the big whammy of the wedding budget? Nope, nope and nope! Some of people who reach out to me the most with questions are bridesmaids, asking about their duties!
