I often get asked by my couple’s what vendors I recommend! There are some great ones around so here’s a list! FYI none of these people have paid me to be on this list…they are genuinely great vendors! I also put an asterisk (*) next to the vendors I used for my own wedding! I will keep this updated as I find new and fabulous people to work with in the wedding industry:
Last week something AWESOME happened! One of the proposals I filmed was featured on HowHeAsked.com! I have followed this site for quite a while and love reading about the adorable proposal stories. I swear they always leave you crying….
Well last week I submitted Kenny and Michelle’s proposal story (seen here) and they featured it! Take a look at the link, which includes full details of how it all happened from Michelle’s point of view…
You can also see their video again here!
For my friend Dianna’s bridal shower, we wanted to come up with a funny way to incorporate the groom and groomsmen! This is where I got the original idea from (http://www.linenlaceandlove.com/2012/04/bridal-shower-ideas-part-1.html) but then decided a little step further 🙂
I started by finding a generic photo of a guy in a tux (I think this one was for Men’s Warehouse). A quick google search and you’ll have plenty to pick from. Then I found LOTS of celebrities photos. Whoever I could think of. I copied and pasted them into a word document and tried to make them all roughly the same size. The original post used photos from magazines but I didn’t feel like getting a bunch of magazines. Plus I wanted to make a LOT 🙂 Just start trimming and glue the celebrities faces to the body of the “tux model.”
It felt like I had my own little “bachelorette” show going on once they were all put together! Haha.
You of course need the groom in there 🙂 I created the heart in word with a text box that said “I LOVE DIANNA!” A perfect touch.
Last but not least I also included the groomsmen on a few of the tuxes! Just stalk their Facebook photos for a little while and I’m sure you’ll find something. We also snuck these into the groomsmen gift boxes on the wedding day 🙂 They were quite confused by them. hah.
When it was time for the shower, I put each “man” in an envelope and passed them out. Whoever happened to get the groom won a prize! It was a simple game that didn’t require a ton of “forced interaction.” Some games get old after a while 🙂
Back in September, one of my best friend’s Dianna told me her brother, Kenny, wanted to propose to his girlfriend Michelle! Dianna was getting married in September, so it would be perfect for Kenny to pop the question 2 days … Continue reading
I’m loving the showers and bachelorette parties happening with everyone’s weddings. My friends Adam and Dianna are getting married in September so we are in the final stretch! The other bridesmaids and I had so much fun getting ready for this shower…complete with a few DIY projects! Dianna decided she wanted a Retro Summer Shower. We did our best and I think everything turned out pretty well. Here are a few pictures! 🙂
Playing the Newlywed Game! See how we did it here!
My favorite gift… the Undie Box! Along with a few other surprises….
My brother’s getting married! This past weekend, a few family and friends hosted a couples shower for my brother and his future wife. I couldn’t believe how well all the details came together! Simply beautiful.
One of the girls made these awesome vases out of old beer and wine bottles by just using spray paint and rubber bands! We used these as one of our games where guests had to match the type of bottle to the correct beer or wine. The boys loved it!
Can’t have a party without delicious food!
Probably the best part of the night…. the Shoe Game! The couple was asked a list of questions and they have to respond by holding up the shoe of either the bride or groom, depending on what they think the answer is. Click here for a great list of questions.
Before dress shopping, choosing your bridesmaids and celebrating with friends and family, the one thing that MUST happen is of course, the proposal! I had the opportunity to film a great friend’s proposal and I felt so privileged to be a part of it. Adam did such a great job! Feel free to check it out here.
When it comes to proposing, some guys shy away from anything too “public” because they’re too nervous or just want something more private. Or possibly they’re afraid she’ll say no! Here are some very brave guys and some amazing proposals!
