Showers & Parties- What is OKAY…

August 29, 2016

As you all know, during the wedding planning process, there is more than just one big event. Several small events greet you along the way, like your bridal shower, bachelor/bachelorette party and more! We tried to break it down for you….

  1. Who hosts the bridal shower? Anyone from the bridesmaids to the mother of the bride to the mother of the groom can host a bridal shower. In any case, the hostess should consult with the bride about the guest list, because shower guests should also be invited to the wedding. *Keep in mind, that it is nice for the mothers to host this event, since it can become costly for your bridal party.
  2. Can you dictate what type of shower you would like? It’s a good idea to discuss the shower with bridesmaids—or whoever is hosting—but avoid demands, especially those that dictate the budget.
  3. Do you need to play games at a shower? No way! You can get creative with showers, everything from cooking classes to mixology classes to just a nice cocktail party.
  4. Do you have to open gifts at a shower? Totally up to you and the host! Sometimes it can be painful and embarrassing, not the mention long. You aren’t doing anything wrong if you skip this portion of the event.
  5. Who hosts the bachelor/bachelorette party? Normally the best man/maid of honor will put the plans together for the fun weekend! Lots of brides and grooms like to include other girlfriends invited to the wedding, so be sure to get that list from the bride and groom.
  6. Do you have to go away for your bachelor/bachelorette party? It is always smart to cater to your audience. Although, you might want a trip, not all your friends might be able to afford it! Be thoughtful and smart. The most important thing is that your surrounded with people who want to celebrate you! View More: http://rianerobertsphotography.pass.us/gardenbridalshowersubmission

Bridesmaid and Groomsmen Gifts!

June 2, 2016

Sweet Root Village put together some fabulous gifts recently and today, they are sharing where and how these beautiful babies came to life!
These bridesmaids gifts were all things sweet, wintery citrus, and floral. A perfectly light combo of deliciousness for these ladies. The gifts included Anthropologie’s Royal Apothic Eau de Parfum, Castelbel’s Plumeria Blossom soap which you can find at World Market, and a delicious nougat treat from The Italian Store to satisfy a little sweet tooth!

The Groomsmen gifts included a pretty rocking stormtrooper tie clip from SirCuffs on Etsy to pay subtle homage to Josh’s deep love of Star Wars. As well as sleek clay pomade from Baxter Of California and a metal hair comb with a bottle opener by Wood ‘n Steel that can be found at Heritage Dry Goods.

The looks were perfectly on point for this crew of attendants and such perfect inspiration for a thoughtful collection of items to love on your closest of friends and thank them for standing with you on such an important day!

Be Our Guest

January 11, 2016

https://youtu.be/88pKnQ5yXpk

….okay, seriously, just be a guest. Here are a few tips to make sure you aren’t being “THAT GUEST!”

1. Don’t change into casual clothing halfway through the reception. The couple wants gorgeous photos of you in your nice attire. Sorry, if it is hot out, it is just a few hours…you can hang in there!

2. Don’t drink like you’ve never been to an open bar before.
It’s the most important day in the couples life, so far and you should behave appropriately.

3. Don’t steal the microphone if you haven’t been asked to make a formal toast. Share your feelings with the couple, personally.
Oh, and it isn’t a concert hall… If you are musically talented, then wonderful, record them a CD. If they have asked you to sing if they wanted to hear you that night, if not, Don’t.

4. Never assume you are invited to visit the bridal suite on the day of the wedding if you’re not her mom or a member of the wedding party. They are hiding out for a reason, to relax before the madness begins!

5. Do not criticize the décor, food, bridesmaid dresses or anything else about the wedding while you are at the wedding.
There is always someone listening! Everyone has different taste, a different budget and a different vision!
