For some couples, the old school vows you recite during a wedding ceremony are perfect. Classic, to the point, and recognizable to all. They’re like a universal promise, and do the trick just fine!  For others, a more personal touch is desired, and it can really add a lot of emotion and sentiment to your wedding ceremony.  You’ve decided to write your own vows, but now….

Is it possible to plan a wedding in just a few months? If you’ve spent any time on wedding blogs, wedding websites or reading wedding magazines, you know that most experts recommend having about 12-18 months to plan a wedding. But, if you read last week’s post featuring Taylor Hutchins, a Spring Lake Bride, you know that timeline is a gross estimation of how long it takes to plan a wedding at Spring Lake. In fact, she planned her wedding in just three months! How To Plan A Wedding On A Small Budget in 6 Months Today we’re going to explain why that timeline just isn’t necessary at Spring Lake.

Vintage weddings on a tight budget

By | 2020-02-20T03:04:56+00:00 February 18th, 2020|Vintage Wedding Planning, Vintage Wedding Venue|

How do you plan a wedding in 6 months on a small budget? This is a true vintage weddings story. The names have been changed to protect the innocent. An open letter to brides wanting a vintage wedding... I got married about 10 years ago, and am part of the wedding industry. I have seen some gorgeous high-end weddings and have seen some weddings that were full of love, but less than stellar. And with all my experience, I wish I would have done some things differently. Here's how my wedding went down. We were going to live at the beach after graduation, so we invited our friends and family down for our wedding. The first reason was so that they would fall in love with the beach there (and come back to visit us!), and the second reason was to cut down the guest list. Half of the wedding [...]

Rain On Wedding Day Tips We told you the rain is beautiful on vintage wedding days. Unknowing this gorgeous video was headed our way, last time we posted about the beauty in rainy wedding days. We've seen couples less concerned with the weather and more concerned with embracing the unexpected on wedding days. Wedding days are a lot like life.

So, you're probably looking for the perfect venue at the moment and you have a budget, right? Well, if you don't have one yet, you probably will create one somewhere along the way.
