Organic Black, White, and Green Wedding Ideas via TheELD.com
One styling concept, two contrasting looks, and four beautiful invitations. These black, white, and green wedding styles, designed by Aisle Society and created by B.LOVED, were tailored around the organic greenery style of the stationery pieces from Minted. One wedding style featuring crisp white details and a minimal style inspired by the first two stationery sets, and the second look incorporating darker decor based upon the black details. We love how this fresh organic concept feels effortless and beautiful in these two distinct looks.

The main focus for both looks was the focus on the lush greenery and organic nature of the floral design. Moss and Stone Floral Designs created a backdrop dripping with a sleek minimalist charm and garlands that effortlessly cascaded down the table, and they paired so perfectly with the rental pieces from Classic Crockery Event Hire.

We hope you enjoy all of the beauty found in the details that were captured by Helen Warner Photography, and that you’ll notice how these looks were inspired by the simplicity of something like stationery designs.

Chances are pretty good that if you are engaged and starting to plan your wedding, the thought of a wedding planner has probably crossed your mind. If you’re like most couples, you probably immediately disregarded the thought, because you think it will be too expensive, or because you feel like this:

“We don’t want to hire a wedding planner because we want to plan the wedding ourselves.”

I’ve actually heard this statement made many times, and it has made me realize that there is a huge misconception about wedding planners and what they do. Well friends, if you know anything about us at Every Last Detail, you know that we really don’t like misconceptions, so the truth is…

A wedding planner does not plan your wedding- YOU DO!

A Wedding Planner Does Not Plan Your Wedding... You Do! via TheELD.com

I want to tell you today that having a wedding planner isn’t about having someone make all the decisions for you.

Having a wedding planner is about having someone who knows what they’re doing, who can help you, and who will plan your wedding ALONGSIDE you.

 

Because chances are pretty good that you’ve never planned a wedding before and you don’t quite know what to do. Weddings are a fun, exciting world, but they’re also tricky and a huge unknown. It’s okay to seek knowledge and help when entering upon this unknown world. Really, it is- it’s what you would do in any other new situation, right?! :)

So with that said, I wanted to elaborate a bit more about why a wedding planner doesn’t necessarily plan your wedding for you. I think many people still have that vision of the wedding planner seen in movies or on TV, handling every single detail of a wedding and taking over the whole entire wedding.

I’m going to ask you to throw that vision away- forget you ever saw it.

Gone are the days of wedding planners only being hired by brides with million dollar budgets, and gone are the days of the wedding planner who takes everything over. [Note: Yes there are some wedding planners that will plan the whole entire wedding but that is usually the bride’s preference, and comes a very high price tag.]

A wedding planner’s job is to help you plan your wedding.

 

You don’t have to be concerned about whether or not you’ll actually be able to plan your own wedding, because you will still be making all of the decisions and be a very active participant in planning your wedding. The only difference is that you will just have help doing it! For example- a planner may provide you with recommendations for vendors, but the decision is yours. You will still research the vendors, meet with the vendors, and hire the vendors, but it’s the guidance from your wedding planner that makes the difference.

There is of course way more a planner will do for you beyond recommending vendors, and to avoid going into a the big long list of what a wedding planner does, I highly recommend that you read this post. (I would have just listed everything for you, but there are just way too many things!)

Something important to remember about wedding planners is that they are all different. They will have different packages, different styles, and different personalities. This is an AWESOME thing though, because that means that there is absolutely going to be a planner who will be perfect for you, your fiancé, and your wedding! Choosing the right wedding planner to help you in your wedding planning process will be best decision you will ever make while planning. I promise!

So the bottom line is this…

[Tweet “Guess what… you are definitely still planning your own wedding if you have a wedding planner!”]

When you have a wedding planner, you will be planning your wedding with knowledge, guidance, connections, and experience on your side! I don’t know about you, but that sounds a whole lot better than planning a wedding and being absolutely clueless and stressed out- don’t you agree?

I’d love to hear from you all about this- have you decided for or against a wedding planner? What are your reasons?

A modern romantic wedding style and a day that incorporated the couple’s love of travel in subtle ways, Sammi and Drew created a wedding day that fully encompassed a day of celebration. We loved hearing about the incredible details that their planner, Lauren Emerson, made so special for them throughout their wedding day, and Rustic White Photography captured every moment so perfectly.

We love how the mixed farm tables, romantic candlelight, mini globes, and lucite details created a style that felt so effortless. The Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta offered the perfect setting to combine these details, and the industrial feel of the space matched with the modern vibe they created.

Sammi shared some of her favorite details that made their wedding such a dream, and we’re thrilled to share more of their day with you!

Tell us a little a bit about your wedding.

The minute our wheels touched down after our engagement excursion I began planning the wedding of our dreams. I had worked with a floral design and wedding planning company after graduating college, so I had a small arsenal of ideas that I couldn’t wait to see come to life. The design musts were King Proteas – my favorite flower – and farm tables, but I also wanted to incorporate the gorgeous lucite elements I’d seen gaining popularity all over Pinterest. Overall, I was looking to combine the pretty, refined look of an editorial shoot with personal touches that make Drew and my relationship so unique, and incorporate our love for travel without actually having it be the theme of the wedding. The table names were of places we had been together and at the head table, instead of “Mr. & Mrs.” we had chair signs made with the lyrics from one of our favorite songs: “I wanna see the world with your hand in mine”.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?

The most important part of wedding planning for Drew and I was to enjoy ourselves. More often than not we hear stories of brides and grooms to-be getting bogged down by the wedding planning process and no longer having fun planning the wedding of their dreams. We had our moments, but overall we tried to enjoy the little victories, oopses and discoveries that come with the territory of planning a wedding. When it came to splurges, photography, a planner and flowers were musts! We could not be happier with the way everything turned out and our incredible vendors were such a huge proponent of the day being such a success!

What were your favorite parts of the day?

Every single moment of our wedding day was magical. From the moment the doors opened and I walked down the aisle with my dad until the very last song was played I was completely overwhelmed with the amount of love from all our family and friends who were in attendance. Everything went off without a hitch and I don’t think a single person had a bad time. My favorite moments, however, were the three private moments I had with my new hubby. First, our incredible planner, Lauren Emerson, arranged for us to enjoy appetizers and bubbly toward the end of cocktail hour in the bridal suite of the venue. It was so amazing to only be with one another as husband and wife and celebrate our new marriage. Second was when Drew pulled me into the reception side of the room before anyone else entered so I could see it all put together. During my time with the wedding planning company right after college I’d experienced several gorgeous venues put together, untouched by guests, but when it’s your own wedding the feeling is entirely different. It was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. Finally, just as the sun was setting, one of my bridesmaids came in from the patio and told us that we had to go watch the gorgeous sunset. Sunsets have become somewhat of a “thing” of ours after a trip to Thailand when we stood on a sandbar watching the most breathtaking sunset we’d ever seen. It was magical, and luckily for us my bridesmaid pulled Robert and Tiffany out to capture the moment.

Did you include any family heirlooms or special traditions?

During the ceremony, we performed our own version of the Indian wedding unity ceremony Saptapadi, or Seven Steps. Saptapadi involves taking seven circles around a fire, where each circle represents seven promises the couple makes to one another. To personalize the ceremony (and abide by the venue’s fire code) Drew and I took seven steps instead of circles, and walked around a tapestry I had purchased on our trip to India. I had spotted the tapestry at a stall in a night market that Drew and I were exploring and when I approached the salesman he stated “You buy this, you’ll marry very soon”. Drew and I quickly dismissed the notion, reassuring the man we were just friends, but looking back we laugh thinking about how fortuitous that moment was and wonder if there was something the salesman saw in us that we hadn’t at the time.

Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?

Enjoy every minute! You’re going to have ups and downs on this adventure, but try not to stress too much when things don’t go perfectly. Also, I can’t recommend hiring a planner enough. Lauren was a godsend and the day would not have been nearly as perfect without her!

We love the lucite details that gave this industrial space a chic modern feel, and every design detail was perfect!

Are you planning on adding any lucite details into your wedding design to give things a modern twist? We want to hear how you plan to incorporate these types of elements.
