A True Vintage Wedding!

Love Vintage?  Go all out with the old car, the dress, the shoes, and we can't leave out the suspenders!  You can tailor your entire wedding from ceremony to reception with gorgeous vintage chairs, centerpieces and decor.  You could even have an old time soda machine for your guests to enjoy - ice cold right out of the chest!  The sky is the limit, so why not have fun with it and make it "one for the books"?

Sometimes the Flower Girl is shy about walking down the aisle alone.  Sometimes it's the Ring Bearer.  One of the best ways to handle this situation is to have them walk together.  The tradition of the flower girl dropping petals and the ring bearer carrying the pillow can be switched out with this super cute idea of having the little boy carry a sign around his neck that reads, "Here comes the bride" while holding hands with the adorable little flower girl.

Wedding Reception: Selecting the Right Location

Now that you're engaged, you are embarking on the search for the perfect ceremony and reception sites.  Before you get started, here is a list of what you need to know:

1.   Figure out how many guests you plan to invite.
2.   Determine your budget - the most amount of money you want to spend on absolutely everything.
3.   Hire Dream Wedding and Event Planners for their expertise and advice. It can be overwhelming.
4.   How do you want your ceremony and reception to feel to you and your guests? 
5.   Make sure your reception venue is "roomy" enough to comfortably fit all of your guests.
6.   When you are standing the room, try to visualize where everything will happen.       
7.   Look for columns or any obstructions that might block your guests' view.
8.   How private is your reception space for your party?
9.   Lighting is key.  Try to visit you space at the exact time of day you are planning the event.
10. Determine if the curtains/carpet will blend with your color selection.
11.  Does the room have good acoustics so your music sounds good?
12.  Make sure there is plenty of parking.

These are just the "tip of the iceberg", but important elements to keep in mind during your search.  Dream Wedding and Event Planners will assist you in every aspect of your planning journey.  They will help you with every detail, often addressing pros and cons that you would not be aware of.
