These peach and blue destination wedding ideas are gorgeous and just overflowing with inspiration! Inspired by the casual elegance of a destination wedding, the stunning waterfront vineyard, Elk Manor Winery, was the perfect setting for creating a wedding design that feels like you’re away from it all- without the travel hassles. tPoz Photography captured everything beautifully, and I can’t wait for you to soak it all in!

From tPoz Photography:

From morning snuggles to carefree tree swinging, barefoot “I DO’s” to a sunset sail to celebrate, this shoot was rich in romance. The neutral color palette lends itself to the natural elements of the sandy beach. Pastel peaches and powered blues mixed with delicate greenery, added the pop of color we were looking for in the tablescape, all while keeping it quaint. Blush Floral Design’s overflowing flowers in wooden boxes were carefully paired with glazed pottery pieces and beautiful conch shells. Splotch & Line freehand lettered the dinner menu onto a sliver of wood to complete the beachfront look.A striking garland graced wrought iron arch overlooking the cove was the perfect place for family portraits. Of course we could not leave out their Flower pup, Lulu, from the shoot! Abby de Rosset created two different looks for the bride’s hair & makeup – a soft & elegant morning look then transformed our model into a sophisticated bride. Both wedding gowns worn echoed the sultry grace of a beachside wedding, and the back of the second dress simply left us breathless. After gallivanting through the vineyard, the couple set sail to their happily ever after!

I for one LOVE the bride’s dress, and the neutral, gorgeous color palette! Whenever I think of a “destination wedding” I always think of something tropical and exotic, but having a destination wedding that doesn’t require much travel is a great idea!

If you could choose anywhere to get married, where would it be? I’d love to hear!

With their guests in mind, Mary Alice and Jeff planned a whimsical wedding that celebrated their love with bright colors, fun stationery (I adore their invites!), delicious desserts, and too many beautiful florals to count. I love that their goal was to make their wedding day one they would have wanted to attend if they were guests instead of the guests of honor. Both the ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Sundy House – a bed and breakfast located in Delray Beach – that has a penchant for expertly planned tropical details. With Captured Photography by Jenny behind the lens, you will absolutely see that Mary Alice and Jeff well surpassed their goal of planning a wedding day with “a relaxed and fun Florida feel” once you take a peek at the photos!

Mary Alice and Jeff tied the knot beneath fruit trees, and the entire property as a whole makes one feel as though they’ve escaped to an island paradise (there were steel drums played, too!). We love how fun this Florida wedding was!

This couple’s Florida wedding is simple, but is in no way ordinary. Jess and Steve met in anatomy lab as freshmen while studying to become veterinarians at the University of Florida. There’s nothing quite like meeting one of your best friends and future husband simply because your last names are close together in the alphabet! Years later while planning their wedding, they centered many of their decisions around their beautiful venue, The Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast. Their dream was to create a meaningful celebration that honored the old Florida charm of their venue, while also celebrating the B&B’s natural, rustic simplicity. We’re thrilled V List Member Ashlee Hamon photographed Jess and Steve’s celebration, and we’re even more excited to share it with you!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

My husband and I decided we wanted to be very involved in the wedding planning process, and I took primary responsibility for the planning.  Fortunately, our caterer (Nellie’s Deli and Catering, Sarsasota FL) also offered planning services to help keep us organized.  With a series of 6 meetings over several months, we were able to create a very detailed wedding day timeline which highlighted not only the minute by minute schedule for the day, but also helped us to identify areas where we had to make decisions – such as decor, music, order of toasts, dances, etc.  I am a very detailed oriented person and enjoy organizing, but even so, without their help the process would have been overwhelming.  We also used Pinterest to organize decor and table setting ideas.  In hindsight, the assistance of a day of wedding planner would also have been helpful to act as an advocate while I was prepping for my big day!

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

We were lucky to find vendors that not only matched our style and vision for our wedding, but also really nice people!  We chose our venue first (Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast).  Our venue was very romantic, with a Old Florida style and waterfront location.  The outdoor space and vintage style of the B&B was perfect for us.  We chose our photographer (Ashlee Hamon) after viewing samples of her work at the B&B.  Meeting with her made us feel very comfortable, and even though my husband and I had never had professional photographs taken before, she did a wonderful job with our engagement session and made us feel so comfortable with the entire process.  Most of our other vendors were chosen based on recommendations from our venue and photographer, and having the word-of-mouth referral was important to know that all of the vendors we hired mutually respected each other and felt comfortable working together – this is important!  Also, we wanted to choose local vendors.  We were thrilled to find a local source for native wildflowers (Williams Wildflowers, Florida Native Nursery, Sarasota FL).  The wildflowers fit our venue perfectly and also showed our green side – my husband and I love nature and the outdoors, and taking care of our planet is very important to us.  We loved that our flowers were grown less than 30 minutes from where we were married!  We were able to stock our own bar, and supported our local brewery with our beer purchase (Cigar City Brewing Company).  Overall, I think the single most important factor in choosing a vendor is to find someone that you immediately feel comfortable with, and someone that reflects your style and values.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

My husband and I met in Florida and have lived here for 9 years together.  Many of our guests were traveling from the Northeast, and we wanted to choose a venue that would show the natural side of our state with an Old Florida feel.  Our venue set the tone for our entire wedding.  I was often asked what our wedding “theme” was, and truthfully that is a difficult question to answer, but we wanted something simple, beautiful, natural, romantic, and somewhat vintage.  We used these ideas to create the rest of our details – our invitations were from a local print shop that uses vintage letterpress equipment (A&P Design Co., St. Petersburg FL), and on our wedding day we included a photo display of our parents wedding day, vintage trunks to hold the programs and cards, natural wood place card holders (Etsy), vintage crystal candlesticks for our head table (courtesy of my mom!), wooden table numbers (Etsy), a lilac lace overlay for the head table (awesome find in a fabric warehouse with my sister in South Philadelphia!), and Mrs. & Mrs. chair banners (BHLDN).  We also ordered biodegradable confetti from BHLDN for the table.  Finally, our cake artist had a multi-tiered wooden cake stand made from real wood, to display multiple small cakes and cupcakes!  We also gave out local Florida honey as our wedding favors.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing about our wedding was the outpouring of love and friendship we felt from our guests!  Our wedding was small (66 guests total including the wedding party) but felt like just the right size for everyone to truly enjoy the entire experience.  I loved every little detail, and seeing all of our time and planning efforts come to fruition was fantastic.  We were blessed with a beautiful sunny Florida day and shared our vows underneath an old oak tree covered in Spanish moss.  I could not imagine a more beautiful place to marry to best friend!

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Start planning early!  We were engaged in May 2013, and were married in February 2015.  We choose our venue in June/July 2013, and thank goodness we did – it is a very popular venue and weekend dates in the nice part of the year book quickly.  Establishing the venue first allowed us to move fairly quickly in choosing our other main vendors.  Also, consider your guest count – a smaller wedding allows you to do more with your budget, and makes for a more intimate experience for your guests.

I love how the flowers completely compliment everything about this wedding’s style! Not only did Jess and Steve wish to honor their venue, but Jess also incorporated so many stunning details from her grandmother and mother not to mention her timeless gown from V List Member Malindy Elene. The beautiful broach on the bride’s bouquet is her grandmother’s, and the candlesticks gracing the sweetheart table are her mom’s. Each piece of Jess and Steve’s wedding has meaning, and they sincerely adored and completely trusted their vendor team which makes their day that much more special.

Today we’re talking about something close to my heart: the fact that every engaged couple NEEDS a wedding planner. Yes my friends- you NEED a wedding planner, you DESERVE a wedding planner, and you should have a wedding planner. Planning a wedding is stressful, and no one should have to have any additional amount of stress than what they already have!

Dear Engaged Couples: You NEED & DESERVE A Wedding Planner! via TheELD.com

Before getting into any of the details, let’s talk about something… wedding planners aren’t just for daddy’s little girls, movie stars, and debutantes (no offense to any of those ladies) anymore! Forget what you see in the movies and TV. That’s not real life. You planning your wedding and wanting to just elope because it’s so stressful? THAT is real life- and you can do something about it.

I myself used to think this, so I immediately dismissed having a wedding planner… until I got so overwhelmed with planning my wedding that I actually looked into a wedding planner. Once I did that, I realized that planners really aren’t that expensive in the grand scheme of things, and if you find the right one, he or she is worth every penny!

Over the past few years, I’ve heard lots of reasons for why couples think they don’t need (or can’t have) a wedding planner. And honestly, most of these reasons are just things that couples tell themselves so they feel better about not having a wedding planner. So for today, let’s just go over these “reasons” for not having a planner that I hear so very often…

“I’m on a tight budget.”

Everyone is on a budget when planning a wedding. And most everyone is on a tight budget at that! But you know what? If you have a wedding planner, he or she will be able to HELP you with that budget. They will tell you what you need and what you don’t need (aka, that you don’t have to waste money on X, Y, or Z). They might even be able to pull a few strings here or there (not saying they WILL, but it does help to know someone).

And you know what else? When it comes to cost and selection, there are LOTS of planners out there. I’m sure you can find one that fits within your budget (just make sure you like them too- that’s a whole other post though!). If you need to, make it work- cut out 10 guests, don’t get those expensive bridesmaid gifts, or forgo cocktail napkins. I promise that it will be the BEST money you spend. And one other thing (speaking as a former wedding planner now)… I can’t even count how many times I’ve saved my couples money. Just saying.

“I want to be able to plan my own wedding.”

Heck yes, of course you want to plan your own wedding- so did I! But you want the FUN parts of planning your wedding. Not the stressful/annoying/crazy parts. Like finding out pricing for rentals. Or getting vendors to call you back/respond to you. Or figuring out your wedding day timeline. Or receiving deliveries and overseeing setup, AND cleaning up.

If you have a wedding planner, you WILL still be planning your wedding. You WILL still have control over what happens for your wedding. I promise you- you will. It will just be you planning your wedding with more guidance, knowledge, and a directed focus. And on the day of… oh my goodness, you’ll be able to just ENJOY your wedding, let go of everything and enjoy your day! :)

[More on this: A Wedding Planner Does Not Plan Your Wedding… You Do!]

 

“I have a specific vision for my wedding and I don’t want to trust anyone else to execute it.”

Having a specific vision is all the more reason to have a planner! I promise you, if you have a planner that you connect with, he or she is going to understand what you are envisioning for your wedding. More so than anyone else, because they will know how to successfully make it happen for you. As far as having your vision reflect YOU, you would actually be surprised at how hard planners work to get to know you and make sure your wedding reflects you and your fiancé. :) If you hire the right planner, they WILL NOT force their own wants upon you for your wedding- they want it to be YOUR wedding, not theirs or someone else’s!  [Note from my former wedding planner self: All of the past brides that I’ve worked closely with to design and plan their weddings, I actually now consider my friends (love you ladies!)- because we connected and I understood their visions. In fact, it was like we were on the same wavelength- even with some creepy ESP moments. ;)]

[More on this: What  a Wedding Planner Really Does]

 

“I want to design/craft/DIY/play with my sister/friend/mother/aunt/grandmother/etc while planning my wedding.”

Having a wedding planner will not take the joy and fun out of doing wedding-related tasks and projects with your family and friends. If that’s what you want, do it. Your planner will probably actually have suggestions or tips for whatever you’re doing! You can still design your whole wedding with your sister, or craft with your best friend, or bake cakes with your grandmother. You can absolutely have a planner even if you want other people to be involved with your wedding. :)

“My sister/friend/cousin just got married and she is going to plan my wedding.”

“My sister/friend/cousin/mom/aunt/grandmother has done other weddings and is going to plan my wedding.”

Okay, so this can only apply if your sister/friend/cousin/aunt/mother/grandmother IS a wedding planner. ;) [And mind you, if they are, they’ll probably make you hire someone for the day of the wedding so they can enjoy it- in fact my friends have already insisted that I NOT work at their weddings.] So other than that situation, you want to be able to ENJOY your planning experience with your family members. You don’t want to butt heads with your mom or hate your sister/friend by the end of the planning process. In the case of someone who has recently gotten married wanting to help you, sure, take their suggestions on what vendors they used for their own wedding, but that’s really as far as you need to go. Plus, wouldn’t it be better to have fun with them during your wedding planning instead of stressing them (and yourself) out?

And then there’s the DAY OF the wedding. You want your sister/friend/cousin/aunt/mother/grandmother to ENJOY your wedding, right?! I guarantee you they want to enjoy it too! (Take it from me- I’ve planned friends weddings before, and it’s no fun to have to sit on the sidelines and be the wedding planner when everyone else is having fun!) And you don’t want them spending the day of your wedding (or the day before for that matter) schlepping things all around your venue, overseeing setup, calling vendors, dealing with messes, etc etc. It’s hard work friends… you don’t want to wish that on any of the people you love. ;)

“My venue has a planner.”

Okay, so here’s the thing- most ALL venues have “planners”. The truth of the matter is that they’re there to sell the venue to you. They are salespeople who handle logistical matters for the venue, therefore needing to have a relationship with you. They sell the venue, the food, the space, and the fact that they’ll be there to help you “plan”… but they won’t. Their concern is the venue, as that is who pays their paycheck. When it comes to “planning”, the only thing they’re going to do is ask you when you want dinner to start. They won’t make appointments for you, help you pick out your stationery, or create a timeline for your whole wedding day. They’re going to be there on the day of your wedding, but they won’t be there when you need them to bustle your dress (and then fix it when it breaks), hold your bouquet, tell you when to cut the cake, or put your overnight bags in the limo. Heck, most of them hightail it home after the cake is cut! So please please PLEASE don’t consider a “venue planner” as an excuse for not having YOUR OWN wedding planner. (PS- my venue had a planner too… she was gone as soon as guests were done with dinner.)

“I really really really can’t afford a wedding planner.”

Okay, well if you’ve weighed the options and you really can’t afford to have a wedding planner help you with the full planning of your wedding, there are alternatives! Many planners have smaller packages available- “partial” planning so to speak. This is always a great option if you’ve already found your venue and hired a few vendors but need help with logistics, design, etc. Can’t afford that? Move on to another option… “Month Of” planning (sometimes known as Day-Of, which is actually a big fat LIE because no one can walk into a wedding on the day of and know what’s going on). This will at least ensure that you have all your ducks in a row for the wedding day. You will have help in creating your wedding day timeline, confirming your vendors, and most of all, handling everything on the day-of the wedding! So if you can’t spring for a planner, at least have a coordinator!

Oh and one more thing- with how hard you are working in your fabulous job that I know you have, why on Earth would you want to add ANOTHER FULL TIME job to your workload? There is a reason that wedding planners exist. Wedding planning takes a lot of time, so why not leave it to someone who knows what their doing- and whose job it already is?!

I know the biggest thing that it comes down to when deciding whether or not you need a planner is money. Yep, everyone is on a budget, I know that. But the thing is, a planner might not be as much as you think they are. Sure, there are some planners that charge a lot, but there are also some that don’t charge as much. You have lots and lots of options out there when it comes to planners- it won’t hurt anything to look around and inquire with planners about what their packages and costs are. When it comes down to it, a wedding planner’s goal is to help YOU plan your wedding.

You CAN have a wedding planner. You NEED a wedding planner. You deserve to have an amazing, stress-free wedding, and so yes… you DESERVE a wedding planner! :)


So, now that all of that is out in the open…

do you have a reason for why you think you don’t need a wedding planner?

 

Share here, maybe I can shed some light on it for you! And any wedding planners reading this, if you have any other reasons to add, please do (with the explanation too of course)!
