TBT: Friendsgiving!

This week’s TBT will inspire you to host your very own Friendsgiving! Enjoy :-)

Thanksgiving is a week away making this coming weekend Friendsgiving weekend! A Friendsgiving is a gathering that occurs prior to the holiday where friends can join together and have a feast.  It can also be held on Thanksgiving day for people who cannot travel to their home states or countries.  Instead, they gather together and have Thanksgiving with their friends instead of their family.  Whether you are partaking in a Friendsgiving this weekend or next Thursday, here are some crowd pleasing recipes that will have everyone asking for more :-).

Wedding Wednesday! (Sara & Chris)

This Wedding Wednesday we will take a look back at Sara and Chris’s October 30th wedding.  While the couple opted out of a fall or Halloween theme, they did however incorporate plenty of personal touches as well as a black and white color scheme.  Not to mention, this was a very dedicated DIY couple.  They customized everything from the programs to the candy bar.  Talk about hard work! Tracy truly enjoyed making this chic black and white wedding happen for this special couple on their big day!

Birthday Brunch!

It is that time of the year again! Tomorrow is my birthday and I am super excited about it this year.  I am turning 25, so I consider this to be somewhat of a milestone birthday. I feel like since I will unofficially be entering adulthood (scary) I must celebrate such a grand moment! Oh, did I mention that my birthday is on a Saturday!?!? That’s the most important part!  As you all know, this only happens every so often, and the last time I had a Saturday birthday was when I was turning 20.  Oh my, how things have changed between then and now haha.  However, I say all of this to say, it is only right to have a mimosa filled birthday brunch when your birthday falls on a Saturday! That is exactly what I will be doing tomorrow and I hope this post inspires you to do the same the next time your birthday falls on a Saturday 😉

TBT: No Flowers, No Problem

Many people associate weddings with beautiful floral arrangements, but it is no secret that there are plenty of brides out there who do not like flowers.  Flowers can be very expensive when you include all of the arrangements from the ceremony, the reception, the bouquets, and the boutonnieres.  According to Lindsay Goldenberg of Woman Getting Married, it is estimated that 8% of your total budget will most likely go to wedding flowers.  That can amount to thousands of dollars, but if you think outside of the box, you can save some of that money by adding non floral elements to your big day!

Summer is now over and fall is officially here! During this season there are plenty of weddings happening since the weather is mild, the leaves are turning, and the holidays are a few months away.  This fall, we at Events to a T would like to take a look back at some of our very own weddings every Wednesday and serve as an inspiration for future brides and grooms.  This week we will take a look back at Julianna and Gaby’s wedding that took place on a fall day at Elk Run Vineyards.
