Challenge BYOB: Day 4 (Oldie, but Goodie)

For today’s BYOB challenge, I am editing one of my favorite posts.  This is one of my favorites because it was one of the first blogs I did for Events To a T and it gives brides alternatives to flowers that are fun and unique.  Check out my new addition to this post and I hope you enjoy this oldie, but goodie 🙂

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!

My addition to this post just happens to go with a day 1 trend from our BYOB Challenge! Of course adding greenery instead of flowers to your wedding is a great 2017 wedding alternative.

Challenge BYOB: Day 1 (2017 Wedding Trend Predictions)

Happy Monday! This week we are participating in The Garter Girl’s Challenge BYOB (Blog Your Own Business).  Today’s topic will be all about wedding trend predictions for 2017.  Here are our top 5 predictions for this year.

 1.) Metallics

Gold and silver have always been on trend for weddings, but for 2017 metallics like copper and rose gold will be all the rage!

2.) Classic Signature Cocktails

In the past, many couples opted for fun signature cocktails, but this year they would rather go for more simple, classic cocktails.

3.) Greenery

Bright floral arrangements will always be part of most weddings, but many couples will be looking to include more greenery through garden inspired florals.

4.) More Snapchat Filters

Snapchat filters were big in 2016, but they will be even bigger in 2017!

5.) Cocktail Receptions

Say bye bye to traditional wedding receptions and hello to cocktail receptions! Small bites and mingling will definitely be on trend this year.

Bonus 6.) Virtual Wedding Planning

While wedding planners are always a good idea, many couples will be looking to their computers for planning guidance.  They will be virtually planning their weddings online.  This gives them the opportunity to plan in their free time, whether they  are working, traveling, or at home.

Wedding Wednesday! (Julianna & Gaby)

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. Enjoy!

Tropical Wedding Ideas

Summer is officially here and so is wedding season! While many couples today may opt for a destination wedding, that is not always the best option for couples with large families.  However, just because you cannot travel to a place like Hawaii, does not mean you can’t have a tropical wedding! Here is some tropical inspiration that can make any wedding feel like it is taking place in a far away destination.
