Customized Champagne Bottle Candle

So you popped the question. She said YES! You popped the champagne and celebrated. Now what?

Do you have any personalized decor pieces from your proposal to take home and reflect on? That’s where Get Wickd comes into play. You keep that champagne / wine bottle from your proposal (or any special event), send it in, and they will make it into a beautiful candle! They will even etch a message on the back of the bottle for you – you can add the proposal date and your names, or part of your proposal speech, anything. Plus, if you sneak the bottle home somehow (like maybe a family member grabs it after the proposal celebration) and send it off without your bride-to-be knowing about it, you can give it to her as a surprise gift! Can you imagine how special it would be to open such a meaningful and thoughtful gift on Christmas morning?!

We are very proud to be partnering with this awesome company to bring these unique candles to our clients. Check out Get Wickd and all the luxury candles they have to offer by clicking here.

The “Other” White Dress

Any bride-to-be knows the importance of finding the perfect dress (or dresses) for their big day.  The ceremony gown and the”party dress,” or reception dress, seem to take top priority, but there’s another dress that could make or break your event: the Bridal shower dress!

Like any other dresses, there are no “one size fits all” options. Typically, the bride-to-be should wear white or a coordinated color to stand out from the rest of the party.  Also, since most bridal showers entertain several generations, choosing a more conservative-fit dress is a good way to ensure all family members leave the shower in good taste.  Last but not least, the dress should express personality.  While ceremony dresses are a little more tricky to match to a theme, bridal shower dresses are easy to style up or down, accessorize, and have fun with.

Father of the Bride Inspired Wedding

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always dreamed of having a wedding straight out of the movies. Well, not just any movie, but specifically the wedding out of The Father of the Bride. My dad and I used to watch that movie multiple times and year and I always said I wanted a tented-backyard-glamorous wedding, just like Annie’s. Now that it’s time to actually make decisions on our big day, it’s even more important to me that we have a clear nod towards the movie. My dad passed away a couple of years ago, so he won’t be able to see our dream come to life on April 24th, but I know that he would be proud.

So, as any girl naturally would, my Pinterest usage has sky-rocketed since getting engaged. Today I’m sharing the “Pinspirations” that we are using to create the perfect Father of the Bride wedding here in Dallas.

Five Reasons to Get a Photographer for your Proposal

If you ask women what they want in a proposal, aside from flash mobs or dream rings, many of them would probably tell you that they want their special moment to be captured in pictures or on video.  While, yes, most of today’s women are selfie-obsessed, the reasoning behind recording your proposal might not be what you would expect.  In fact, it may not only benefit your lady, but you as well!

Here’s why:

  1. She can share the moment with family and friends.What new bride-to-be doesn’t love to brag about what an amazing fiancé she has?  Plus, you’ll score some brownie points with her mom and girlfriends for that amazing speech!
  2. She will be able to relive the moment (even 50 years down the road.) …and you can show your future kids. Too sweet!
  3. Your lady may be so surprised, that she forgets to listen to the speech you spent months preparing.“Oh my gosh, this is really happening!” will definitely be playing over and over in her head.
  4. She will be able to appreciate exactly how perfect the moment really was. As far as she knows, it’s just another day.  It won’t cross her mind to stop and take in all the little details.
  5. You’ll be able to remember her “YES!” expression forever. That happy cry that made your heart skip a beat? You’ll have that moment to relive forever.

Tips for Wedding Hotel Room Blocking

I never in my life would have thought that room blocking would have been such a difficult process. Aaron and I went to do room blocking and thought it would be a simple “one and done” type of thing. I mean seriously, how hard is it to walk into a hotel, tell them you want to send a bunch of guests their way, see the rooms and what they have to offer, sign a piece of paper and walk out? Y’all it is harder than you’d think! So I’ve put together some tips that we learned while searching for the perfect place for our wedding guests to stay.

advice for booking your hotel for your wedding guests

  1. Visit the hotel in person! Every hotel looks beautiful online. They brag about the great neighborhoods, etc and then you get there and realize that the “shopping” they discussed on the website is actually just a Walmart Super Center right next door.
  2. Location, location, location. We ended up picking a spot that was halfway between our wedding venue and the rehearsal dinner space. That way it’s convenient for both nights for our guests.
  3. Smoking or Non Smoking. I really didn’t think this would be an issue in today’s society, but a lot of the hotels (at least here in Dallas) offered smoking rooms which meant that the elevators and/or lobby area smelled like cigarettes. If this is a big deal for you, then look online to see if they are a smoking hotel before you visit in person.
  4. Bridal suites. The hotel that we ended up booking is “giving” us a room for my bridesmaids and me to get ready in the morning of the wedding. They even took the time to give me a tour of the room so that I could confirm that it’s what I want all of our pictures to be taken in! So considerate!
  5. Parking. A lot of the hotels in Dallas don’t have ample parking for our guests (because we are in a major city). So we made sure that valet is available for the guests convenience!
  6. Discounted rates. Almost all the hotels will give your guests discounted rates for staying with them, but check online to make sure that the discount is legit. One of the hotels we looked at said they would give our guests a discounted rate of $169 a night, then I got on hotels.com and found the same price. No thanks!
  7. Custom links. Our hotel actually sent us a customized html link for our guests to book through that way they are getting the discounted rates! We just added that link to our wedding website and bam! So easy and so convenient for our guests.

Mondays for Men: Coffee Cup Flirt

As the summer starts to wind-down I feel myself getting groggier and more sleepy as the day goes on. Blame it on the extreme heat, or maybe just the sadness of knowing that the cruel winter is right around the corner… I’m not sure but either way it’s true. My normal one cup of coffee a day rule has been broken way too many times to count so far this month.

If your girl is feeling the same way, then gift her with a little afternoon pick-me-up! During your lunch break, run by Starbucks (or your neighborhood coffee shop – shop local!) and grab her favorite drink. Then surprise her at the office with this joy-filled cup and a little sharpie note from you. The combination of flirtatious smiles and caffeine is sure to get her through the end of a rough work day! Gifts can be inexpensive, while still being thoughtful and sweet – and after all coffee is a girl’s best friend. Oh wait… ;)
