Flowers are one of the highest priced items in your wedding budget. Can you imagine, brides are spending an average of $1,000 – $2,000 on flowers, and that doesn’t even include the reception! We used a local florist, and a few tricks below to stay right around $1,500 for the bridal party and centerpieces for the reception.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Wedding Wednesday post! It’s not that the wedding hasn’t been a focus – but considering we move in to our new home next week (be prepared for LOTS of picture posts!), it hasn’t been top priority in February. However, before I move out of my parents, I’m determined to address all of my invitations! We won’t be sending them until Mid-March (6-8 weeks is the preferred timeline), but it’s better to be prepared!
Happy Engagement Season everyone! Whether you’re fed up with seeing relationship changes on Facebook or dreaming of a blue-box-Christmas yourself, you’ve probably heard horror stories of how “hard” wedding planning is – evil mother-in-laws, last minute catering changes, etc. I, however, am in the “Can I just help Bliss Events and plan everyone’s wedding?” camp. It’s easy – IF you’re organized.
If you’re anything like me, 2014 is going to be the year of name-changing. I’m lucky to be on both sides of the eight ball – a bride-to-be and a bridesmaid-to-be (x3!) That being said, I have a bit of advice for both sides of the bridal party.
