Inspired by a wedding timeline from waking up, to getting ready and seeing each other for the first time on your wedding day, this styled shoot is packed with special moments. And it couldn’t be cutter with the help of their little dapper furry model! I need this bow for my little guy!

With so many great sales going on for the holidays, now is the perfect time to toast to her engagement and spoil your bestie! For her honeymoon I absolutely love these Miss to Mrs luggage tags and Just Married flip flops to wear in the sand.

If you are planning on splurging on the bride-to-be, get her something new with these Jimmy Choo  wedding shoes. They are marked down almost 50% off right now! And for the bride that wants to soak in the moment and joy of her engagement, get her this book on stuff every bride should know to get her prepared for wedding planning and this ‘Does this ring make me look engaged?’ mug. Perfect for her Instagram announcement! Which one is your favorite?

‘Tis the season! I love putting these lists together, getting in the spirit of the holiday and online shopping in my pjs at home! There are so many good sales going on right now! Some of them are continuing over from Black Friday and adding on surprise sales! Which ones are you hitting?

 Piggy backing off of this weeks post on creating vignettes for you wedding, you will need signage for all of these places at your wedding! I am a big fan of branding your wedding so once you have a vision in mind it’s important to use the same fonts and colors on everything from your invitations to every sign at your wedding. Here are the locations you need signage.

WELCOME SIGN
You will be tucked away in your bridal suite so have a sign to greet your guests to your wedding with a welcome sign!

DIRECTIONAL
There are so many stops on your wedding day-of timeline from your ceremony, to cocktail hour and the reception location. You don’t want your guests wondering around, show them where to go with a custom directional sign!

SOCIAL MEDIA HASHTAG
Oh snap! Have your friends and loved ones assist in capturing your day by using a wedding hashtag and sign to promote it. Have multiple signs as reminders to use your hashtag as they post to social media through out the day.

SIGNATURE COCKTAIL
Make sure your guests aren’t ordering their usual drink of choice and trying your ‘blushing bride‘ cocktail!

TABLE NAMES
Name your tables after the cities you’ve visited together or keep it traditional with table numbers, either way it will help your guests quickly find their seats!

PLACE CARDS
Help escort your guests to their seat with place cards at each table.

WEDDING FAVORS
Don’t be left with 100 candles, ensure your guests take their favor with a sweet sign.

Weddings are fluid events as guests are constantly floating from one activity to the next. In an effort to create an environment that feels seamless, you need to create vignettes and seating areas for your guests to feel comfortable. Here are a few key tips on how to achieve this for your wedding!

CONSIDER YOUR ELDERS
It’s a thoughtful gesture to have reserved seating for your elderly attendees like your grandparents. They will appreciate that you thought of them and be extra cozy on a plush reception couch.

GREET YOUR GUESTS
You never want your guests standing around and wondering what they should do, so show them! Have an opening table at each stop on your wedding timeline with a cute sign welcoming them to that activity. At the ceremony location for example, have a guest book table and a welcome table with cold refreshments. These two tables will create zones for guests to gather.

DON’T JUST THINK SEATING
You can’t shake hands or give hugs with your hands full! Have high cocktail tables for guests to gather around and rest their beverages.

MAKE IT COHESIVE
When renting your cocktail hour furniture make sure it aligns with your wedding colors, theme and venue. You want these areas to look like they were meant to be here and not an after thought.

WHEN YOU NEED THEM
The best examples of places you need these areas are the following; gift table, guest book table, welcome table, cocktail hour tables and seating, kids area, place card table, wedding favor table, reception seating and the sweets table.
