Memorial Day Wedding at the Botanical Gardens

This venue was the perfect space for what Ashleigh and Taylor had envisioned for their wedding. We were thrilled to be able to work with such an amazing couple and are even more excited to show everyone how this day turned out. It truly was a memorial day for everyone involved.

Fall Wedding at Old Edwards Inn

By Nancy Kuperberg

The No Regrets Events team gets to work in some beautiful locations, at great venues and with amazing vendors! One of our favorite fall wedding locations is Highlands, North Carolina.  In October the leaves are beautiful, the temperature is perfect and the views, oh the views! We are so excited to share the following photographs from Sara & Logan Weddings of Sara and Justin’s marriage celebration at Old Edwards Inn.  We had a blast working with Sara and Justin as they planned every detail of the day. Their vision for the wedding weekend was clear and we worked closely with the couple to find the best vendors to make it all happen. When the wedding weekend arrived Sara was probably one of the most calm brides we have ever worked with and it truly shines through in this photos.

Thank you to all the talented vendors that made this day perfect! Venue & Catering: Old Edwards Inn, Baker: Icing On The Cake, Catering: Mountain Fresh Market, Ceremony Musician: Brandon Reeves Music, Cinema: Peerless Films, Reception Entertainment: ATG Entertainment, Floral Decor: Floressence Floral Design, Photography: Sara & Logan Weddings, Linens: Party Tables, Stationary: Minted, Officiant: Reverend Dr. John Erbelding

The Last Half of the Wedding Checklist: What To Do One Month Before the Big Day

By Krysten Lewis

Many couples believe that once everything is booked and the decor selected, then they are done with the major tasks for the wedding; that it is all smooth sailing from here on out! However, there are still many important items left on the checklist to consider in the month leading up to the wedding. For instance:

  • The Marriage License: Most marriage licenses are only good for a short period of time. So, be sure to obtain it in the month leading up to your wedding for the officiant to sign.
  • The Vendors: Be sure to meet with any and all vendors to finalize key items such as the menu, song mr-mrsselections for the first dance or father-daughter/mother-son dances, photo-ops you would like your photographer to capture, and the time that each vendor is expected to arrive at the venue.
  • The Trial Run of Hair and Makeup: This is always a good idea so as to avoid any hiccups on the day of the wedding, to make sure that you like the look, and to identify any makeup allergies ahead of time.
  • The Head Count: You might have already given the caterer an estimate of the number of people you were expecting to attend. However, be sure to provide them with an exact number during the month before the wedding so that they can prepare accordingly, leaving your guests with enough food and you with an appropriate bill.
  • The Directions: You may have already included directions or a venue address for your guests. However, be sure to also send this information to the vendors so that they know where to go on the day of the wedding (this includes any limousine services). It may be wise to have accurate step-by-step directions from the internet on hand should a driver or vendor have their GPS unit fail and call you for directions.

While these are some of the main big items left to cover, there are also many smaller things to consider like gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen, pens for the guest book, welcome gifts for the out of town guests, etc. Because this can all be very stressful, having a wedding planner can come in handy. Instead of worrying or stressing over last minute tasks, have someone else worry about it for you. The wedding planner will be there to help you avoid forgetting anything or anyone and to assist in juggling the last-minute to-dos provided by the vendors. Think of them as your fairy godmother(s) come to the rescue!

Who should say “I Do” to paying for the Wedding?

By Krysten Lewis

One major problem couples encounter when budgeting a wedding is figuring out which side is responsible for paying for which parts of the event. Traditionally, there are rules as to what the bride’s family is responsible for and what the groom’s family is responsible for. For example:

Bride’s family

  • Ceremony venueTF7HE6xrpZ6ZXPTom5KURv4QUZwsUGq9PDLaom_EDnc,J3-kDopTp9XbG3kt1U35NFOYEK15kMh2u26e8fMNb-0
  • Bride’s dress
  • Flowers for the ceremony and church
  • Bouquets for bridesmaids
  • Photography and video
  • Reception (Food and Decor)
  • Band/DJ
  • Stationery (invitations, announcements, programs)
  • Transportation

Groom’s family

  • Marriage license
  • Officiant fee
  • Groom’s tux
  • Bride’s Bouquet, Boutonnieres for the men, and Corsages for mothers and grandmothers
  • The Honeymoon
  • Rehearsal dinner

With that being said, some couples are going for a more modern approach, either paying for the wedding on their own (assuming they have the means to fund it) or allowing family members to contribute what they would like to the wedding. A good strategy for having this talk with the respective families is to simply piece out the wedding budget and to let the individual parties choose which aspects they feel they would best be able to cover. Rather than take the approach of assigning the traditional wedding aspects to the bride and grooms’ families, respectively, instead sit and figure out how much each part of the wedding will cost and then allow the family members to decide on what they want to pay for. By doing so, it can give the two sides a chance to communicate and to go into the wedding without the feeling that one side has had to foot an unfair amount of the bill.

Wedding Inspiration

Check out some of these great ideas for a fall or early winter wedding! The Bride requested that there be no cut flowers in her bouquet and if any were used for the centerpieces then they would have to be locally grown. Read the full story and see more pictures on Style Me Pretty!
