” ‘My mom was a lot of my inspiration for my wedding color palette and décor choices because growing up she would throw the most gorgeous detailed parties with fine china, amazing flowers, and elegance. So I think with her inspiration and my more modern and cool vibes, I knew that I wanted it to be timeless, elegant, and modern chic (to represent me).’ ” – The bride via Southern California Bride

- How to choose your wedding guest book:
- ” ‘Guest books are not a ‘need,’ but they are another fun memento of the day,’ says Jill Gordon, owner and wedding planner at Jill Gordon Celebrate in East Hampton, New York. Gordon, who launched her wedding planning business in 1995, recommends choosing a guest book that reflects your personal style, like a coffee table book featuring photos from a location that you love. ‘Guests can select their favorite page and leave a note,’ she says. ‘It’s fun for couples to have on a coffee table and flip through now and again.’ “
- ” ‘It’s always important to consider what you’re going to do with the guest book after the wedding,’ says Sarah Glick, lead wedding planner at Brilliant Event Planning in Boston, Massachusetts. ‘If you want to do something like puzzle pieces, will you frame it and hang it in your home? If you would like to have the messages from guests as a keepsake but want something more subtle, a more traditional book might be a good option. Our favorite guest books right now are audio guest books that allow you to hear messages from your loved ones long after your wedding.’ “
- Religious wedding officiant fees
- ” ‘Religious officiants are often donation-based and tend to have more expenses if you are having them travel to your venue,’ says Sarah Glick, lead wedding planner at Brilliant Event Planning in Boston, Massachusetts. Because of this, Glick says that religious officiants can be more expensive than professional non-denominational officiants, but it all depends on your situation.”
- Local requirements
- ” ‘In Mexico, you must have blood work done before you can be married legally, which has lab and hospital costs,’ says Bonnie Chase, CEO, owner and destination wedding planner of Events by Bliss in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. ‘It’s a good idea to talk about these details with your planner as early as possible to make sure that your requirements are met and that they are accounted for in your budget.’ “
- Who pays for wedding officiants
- ” ‘These antiquated ‘who-pays-for-what’ rules are long out the window,’ says Chase. ‘Weddings today typically have contributions from one or more families, as well as the couple themselves, but every situation is unique. A much easier way to manage wedding spending is for all contributions to be compiled into the master wedding budget, which is used to pay all of the expenses.’ “
- ” ‘Many couples tend to pay for their own officiant, unless it’s a religious or cultural officiant provided through their families,’ says Brooke Heflin, Founder and Director at Burlap and Bordeaux, a luxury design and event planning company in Southern California.”

“This New Year’s Eve wedding is nothing short of magical! Jenna and Patrick planned an outdoor wedding and reception however due to the weather they had to move their wedding indoors at the last minute. Luckily they had an amazing vendor team who not only transitioned the reception indoors but also stayed true to the theme Midnight Garden Party and made it even more magical than we could have imagined.” – Wedding Chicks
