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!

TBT: Summertime Wedding Tips!

Summer is officially here and there are weddings happening almost every weekend.  With the beautiful weather that the season brings, many of these weddings are held outdoors.  With that being said, it is only right for our TBT post to be all about tips on how to enjoy a summertime wedding by keeping cool and avoiding those pesky mosquito bites.


Now that summer’s upon us, it’s time for a few friendly reminders – the following tips will help make your wedding the hottest of the year (in a good way)!

The Joy of the Great Outdoors

As the saying goes, if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain. Or do you? To make sure you’re not caught by surprise on the day of your wedding, always have a backup plan in place – make preparations for a tent, because you never know if you might need it. This way, should rain make an appearance on the big day, it is not an unexpected guest.

Unfortunately, sometimes the great outdoors brings another unwelcome guest: mosquitoes! To ward off these pests, you can place lanterns treated with insect repellent at each table:


Make sure to have plenty of cold refreshments available to your guests to keep them happy and hydrated:

Staying in the Shade

Give your guests relief from the hot summer sun by providing them with mini bottles of broad-spectrum sunscreen before the wedding starts, so they have time to apply. Here are some more ideas for keeping cool:

No Wilting Allowed

Work with your florist and choose blooms that are in season – this will help prevent your beautiful bouquets and centerpieces from wilting in the summer heat. Or you can skip the flowers altogether and go for a brooch bouquet that definitely won’t wilt:

The bottom line for outdoor weddings is this: keep cool and hydrated, and enjoy your day!

Here is some tropical inspiration that can make any wedding feel like it is taking place in a far away destination.
