Planning 101 Love Notes

At the beginning of the month, Twenty7Events spoke at Ready? Set. Wed! on the basics of planning your wedding. In case you missed it, here is the recap!

First and foremost, I will reiterate what the mission is at Twenty7Events: bringing your lifestyle and brand to your events. Your wedding is a reflection of you and your fiance and that’s exactly how it should be marketed. Any vendor can customize just about anything for you. Find it and own it with your brand on it!

Tips and Trends: Not in any specific order. #1 Stripes. Classic black and white stripes accompanied by a bold statement color. Think big – yellow, green, fuschia, turquoise! We’re not talking referee striped linens but add the stripes into the table numbers, napkin ring holders, or center piece vases. If you’re doing them as napkin ring holders then make your vases in black and white with LED lights inside to make them glow. Contemporary and modern is what you will achieve. #2. Regal: Marie Antoinette. The perfect colors for this are royal purple, majestic green, and gold (duh!). Add in old skeleton keys as part of the escort card holders, use scrolls in your wedding stationery, etc. You get the picture!

Colors: Aside from the afore mentioned, we are going with yellow and grey paired together. And green. Combine green with navy and white stripes for a nautical look. Add it to the purple for the majestic look. Mix it with yellow for a garden bridal or baby shower.

Budgets: It is crucial to decide on a budget when beginning your wedding planning. You should at least have an idea of what your cap is going to be. Set that number and then give us a call or email to chat about how much you should designate to the different vendor categories.

Think of your guests for your wedding – make it memorable for them too! Often forgotten vendors: Valet. If you are having a wedding at a venue that does not have valet services or are having it in a backyard then you should contact a valet company about 4 months prior to your wedding date. Valet companies have to get city permits for parking spaces, insurance, staffing, and space reservations. Permits can sometimes take weeks to get approved depending on the area of the event. Think of the ladies in stilleto’s walking to and from the car for your wedding … you wouldn’t want to do it either.

Other things to consider for your guests – water and mosquito repellent. These are crucial for outdoor and garden ceremonies and weddings.

Remember, you heard/read it here first!
