Lyn & Paul {10.15.16}

Lyn and Paul were married on October 15th at the gorgeous Wilderstein Historic Site in Rhinebeck, NY. One of our favorite moments from the day was seeing Lyn process off of the porch; it was timed perfectly so that she reached the bottom exactly during the crescendo of her song, and was a truly breathtaking moment.

Here are some of our other favorite details:

-Lyn’s shoes, which were a beautiful blue with white lace details
-The little wood rounds that held up seating cards
-The tickets which were handed out to guests so they could tour the mansion during cocktail hour
-Their cake topper- adorable!
-Desserts served in little beakers, courtesy of Jeff Loshinsky catering
-The stunning florals, courtesy of Floral Fantasies
-The cameras they rented; guests could take photo or video throughout the day and night, and then they are shipped back to the company, who gives the bride and groom all of the footage.

Congratulations Lyn & Paul!

Cost Saving Tips

Hello everyone! Today we bring you some of the best cost-saving tips and tricks we know of. Weddings can get expensive quickly, and staying within budget can begin to seem impossible. Read on for some simple ways to cut back without compromising your vision!

Whittle Down The Guest List

This is one of the absolute best ways to cut down on costs- not only will you save on the price per head for dinner, but also on the alcohol, chairs, silverware, glasses, plates, favors, and much more. Feeling like you will hurt peoples feelings, or even worse offend them? Try cutting out certain groups completely. For instance- children, coworkers, or the “plus one” option for singles.

DIY Favors

DIY-Mason-Jar-Candle

DIY favors are a fantastic way to save money and help cut costs. Candles, baked goods, and  soaps are all great options! See here for more ideas. Don’t think you will have the time to assemble them all? Enlist friends and family members to help and make it a party!

Two-In-One Seating Cards and Favors

Another great way to save is to have your favors also double as seating cards. Try using mini potted plants, mini champagne bottles, mason jars or another personalized glass, or anything else you can dream up. Attach a name card or sticker and you’re done!

Skip Printed Programs and Menus

Both of these usually get glanced at and then thrown away. Try using a large chalkboard on an easel to display your ceremony program, or a small chalkboard or framed picture of your menu on the table.

Save On Centerpieces

Another great way to to save money is to cut back on flowers; these are usually quite expensive, and get thrown out at the end of the night as well. An easy alternative is to DIY them, (use small potted flowers or even a small window box). You can also visit a local pick-your-own flower market, or order them in bulk from a wholesaler. Purchase bud vases, and put a few stems in each; simple, chic, and cost effective.

Dessert Buffet vs. Traditional Cake

Having a dessert buffet instead of a traditional tiered wedding cake is another easy way to save. Pies, cheesecakes, cupcakes, cookies, and ice cream sundae bars are just a few of the items you could choose. If you still want a traditional cake to cut, you can get a small, simple, one tiered cake. This will give you the moment you want, your guests options for dessert, and will save you money.

Search For “Recycled” Items From Other Brides

Websites like wedding-recycle.com, bridalgaragesales.com, and tradesy.com are amazing resources! Find centerpieces, candles, linens, lighting, and just about anything else you can imagine for bargain prices! Bonus- consider selling items you have leftover from your wedding; after all, what are you going to do with 200 votives?

 

We hope this has given you a few helpful and easy tips to manage your costs! If you’re still feeling overwhelmed by your budget and could use more advice, you can contact us at info@everylittledetails.com to schedule a consult. Happy Planning!

Ben and Katie {5.21.16}

Ben and Katie got married on May 21st at Indian Ridge, in Highland, NY. The couple have been very close friends of ours for years, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to be a part of their big day! They hired an amazing team of professionals, and incorporated so many unique and quirky touches into their day; it truly was a fantastic celebration!

Fun touches:

  • Ben and Katie have 5 dogs- all 5 got to be a part of their bridal party, complete with special “corsages” for their collars
  • In lieu of favors the couple made a donation in each guests name to ‘The Farm Fund‘, a resource for pets in need of critical care
  • They both adore the color purple and New Balance sneakers, so each had custom New Balances made with ‘Just Married” on the heel
  • Potted plants with popsicle sticks inside were used as their place cards
  • Being huge fans of the band Phish, the couple named their tables after shows they had seen
  • Last but not least- they even had a self-serve bourbon fountain!

 

Ben and Katie- congratulations, and we love you!!

Megan & Bryan {5.16.16}

Megan and Bryan got married on a beautiful May day at the Elm Rock Inn, in Stone Ridge, NY. With wonderful food, an incredible photographer (his blog post here), gorgeous flowers, and an amazing DJ, (not to mention the delicious gluten-free cupcakes for dessert!), we don’t think the day could have been any more perfect!

Megan and Bryan incorporated so many fun details into their special day. We loved that they used a framed “theater poster” of the two of them as their guestbook for friends and family to sign (they met on the set of a play). There was also a “message in a bottle” station where guests could leave funny notes or helpful advice for Megan and Bryan to open and read on their first anniversary. The couple also took the time to hand-paint all of the mason jars that were used in their centerpieces, and they looked fantastic!

Some other fun details:

  • Burlap pinwheels lining the aisle (also made by Megan)
  • A remembrance table in memory of people very close to the couples hearts
  • Kazoos for after the ceremony
  • An after-party bonfire, complete with smores!

It was a very special day for a very special couple; Congratulations Megan and Bryan!
