Nontraditional Vintage Weddings

As we dig into some of the traditions that come with the territory of vintage weddings in Georgia, we also want to discuss an option you have; breaking them!  So often an engaged couple tends to fall into the “norm” when it comes to planning their wedding. There isn’t much thought on why we do the things we do, and if they can be done differently. We are here to remind you that your wedding can be whatever you want it to be!  Bridal Party The idea that the bride’s party needs to be women and the groom’s needs to be men is silly! Of course, we have friends of the opposite sex, and it’s okay to include them in your wedding party. The idea of only same-sex bridal parties is outdated and just plain ridiculous given modern times. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and ask whoever it [...]

Bouquet Toss Alternatives At A Vintage Wedding

Let’s dig into a tradition you probably witness at most of the Georgia wedding venues you attend: the bride tossing her bouquet.  Where did this tradition begin? And why? Don’t get me wrong, I love standing up in a crowd surrounded by my fierce, single-and-thriving counterparts and busting a move to Beyonce at every wedding I attend, but I’ve never really stopped to think about why it’s a “thing”. So let’s find out!  It all started in England a long, long time ago. Most of these traditions have somewhat “dark” histories, and this one is no exception. In fact, it’s a bit brutal! Before it was scaled down to an innocent toss of some flowers into a crowd, women would actually all gang up on the bride! The idea was that if you could rip a piece of her garment off for yourself (yes, a piece of that beloved wedding [...]

Southern Wedding Traditions

Ever heard the phrase, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?" Especially if you’re in the middle of planning a Georgia wedding, we’re sure you have. The phrase refers to a wedding tradition where the bride is supposed to carry or wear one item of each for good luck on her wedding day and in her marriage. But why? Where did this phrase come from? Are you superstitious? Do you plan to follow along with this rule?  The phrase originates from an Old English rhyme, and over time has just become a traditional rule of thumb. Many couples still choose to honor this tradition in good fun. And you can really get creative with it! Wear your grandmother’s antique brooch in your hair, perhaps (old and borrowed. Kill two birds with one stone!). If you’re really brave, dye your hair blue! Why not? Something Old This part of the [...]

Wedding Makeup Ideas For Vintage Weddings

Makeup Statements for an Expressive Bride Your wedding day makeup doesn’t have to meet the expectations of anyone else. The entire day is about you and your significant other, and your makeup should make you feel beautiful and be 100% a reflection of you. There’s often the same neutral-colored airbrush sample face found on website after website.  Be the bride who isn’t afraid to step outside of the box! Lips  A bold, daring lip color can really spice up an entire bridal party! And you don’t have to all wear the same color. Give your bridesmaid ladies a little bit of freedom (you know, within your limits) to experiment and switch up from the plain old neutral lip colored look that most girls go with!

How To Choose A Georgia Wedding Venue

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 [...]
