Choosing the Perfect Bridesmaid Gift You’ve chosen your squad, and to thank them for being a part of your big day (and everything leading up to it), you want to get them a really special gift. The truth is, we could write a book on the different options, but these are just a few of our favorites… Personalized Jewelry  Many of the options we’re going to discuss might seem obvious or overdone. The reason? They’re timeless gifts that no one could ever get sick of!  Jewelry is one of those things. No girl will ever complain about a gorgeous necklace, bracelet, or set of earrings! You could have names or initials engraved onto them, or personalize with something related to your friendship. Maybe her birthstone? The bonus is she can wear it on the day of the wedding!

How To Choose A Georgia Wedding Venue

By | 2019-11-05T15:13:46+00:00 November 5th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Choosing The Best Wedding Venue All wedding venues in Georgia are not created equal. The fact is, some venues jump on a trend just because they can, but that doesn’t mean that they’re willing to put in any effort to making sure the event is beautiful and executed flawlessly. Many venues have the mentality that if they simply exist, the business will come. That may be true to an extent, but don’t be a bride who ends up with a venue that has you sign some paperwork and then you don’t hear from them again.  Wedding Venue Grounds  It’s one thing to own some property, but it’s another thing to keep up with it. Proper landscaping is, of course, important, but you want to find a venue that has clearly taken the time to add touches of beauty that they didn’t necessarily have to add. At Spring Lake, our gorgeous [...]

Working With a Wedding Planner

Your #1 Relationship: Your Wedding Planner Wedding planners can truly be a gift from the heavens. The first step, though, is often the hardest; finding one you deem worthy.  If someone is being paid to organize the details of your wedding day, they better be making it their main priority. They should be just as enthusiastic about it as you are, and have ALL of your best interests in mind. That being said, there are going to be some conversations you are comfortable having with them before making any firm decisions. This relationship is going to be vital to the success of your vision.  Money Talk Let’s get right to the nitty-gritty. You MUST be comfortable talking about money with your wedding planner, and it should probably be one of the very first topics you cover. If you get an uneasy feeling discussing money with them for whatever reason, it’s [...]

Paying For The Wedding I know I don’t have to tell you, but I’m going to anyway… Weddings. Can. Be.

Who can officiate your wedding ceremony?

By | 2019-11-05T01:40:49+00:00 October 25th, 2019|Vintage Wedding Planning|

Who can officiate your wedding ceremony? Choosing who will be your wedding officiant is a big decision, so being informed about your options is, of course, a great idea.  Most often, Georgia weddings are religious ceremonies, and the officiant is a member of a religious group but is also recognized by the state as a valid wedding officiant. That leads us to option one! Religious Officiant.  No matter what religion you are, you should be able to consult with your church or religious group about a priest, minister, deacon, etc. performing your ceremony. If they are qualified to do so in your religious group, chances are they are also recognized by the state. Many people opt for this option if they are choosing to have a religious ceremony.  A Judge.  Having a judge be your officiant is an option in multiple ways. Of course, you can always do the old [...]
