While in the throws of wedding planning, it’s important for couples to find time to break away and take time to celebrate with the members of their bridal party that will be standing beside them on their wedding day. We love this luxury spa day inspiration for a bride and her best girls in a fun “A Lucky Bride To Have You By My Side” celebration!

This inspiration was the third installment of the Captured and Engaged engagement giveaway series in which a team of well-respected wedding professionals in Central Florida capture the love story of a recently engaged couple by celebrating with them in a unique and meaningful way. With this shoot they decided to showcase a unique way in which a bride can ask those girls closest to her to be her bridesmaids, and we agree that a luxury spa day with sweets and bubbly was the best way to do just that!

We love how they created such a relaxing environment with airy tones, lush florals, and a unique arrangement of carefully curated and styled elements pulled together by this team of vendors. This intimate spa session made for the perfect gift to pamper this bride-to-be’s favorite ladies as she asked them to join her on her wedding day. So many hardworking hands made this inspiration come to life, and we love how beautifully LH Photography captured the joy and celebration created for this bride and her friends in this special way. (Oh, and PS- scroll down to the end of the post to find out more about the next giveaway!)

So some of you may or may not know that I used to be a wedding planner. It’s why I talk about wedding planning things all the time. ;) I do also still coordinate weddings with friends throughout the year, and one wedding this past spring was a doozy. There were SO many things that occurred that as the bride’s wedding planner, we had to make right or find a solution to, and the bride and her family had NO idea. Thank goodness they had us, because I don’t know what would have happened otherwise!

101 Things a Wedding Planner Will Do That You Would Never Know About via TheELD.com

In a nutshell, the caterer was stuck in traffic because of a stopped highway, and they not only had the food, but also the reception tables and cocktail hour high tops. They ended up being 3 hours late and arrived a mere 20 minutes prior to guests arriving- and it was only 20 minutes because that’s how far the church was from the reception site. I was in constant contact with the caterer, and I had everything as ready to go as possible for when they arrived. I pre-sorted chairs, menus, napkins, and chargers according to how many were to be at each table, and put markers for where each table was to go. Once the caterer arrived, I and 2 other people setup a whole reception (minus the head table that was already setup) in 20 minutes. And no one had ANY idea. Not even the photographers, or the guests who were arriving just as we were putting finishing touches on the table. I’m pretty sure the bride and groom still don’t even know.

The aforementioned instance had me thinking about all of the things that a wedding planner/coordinator do that many couples, parents, and guests have no idea about. And so, I started a list of these things. And then I asked my wedding planner friends. The result is the following list of 101 things that have actually happened on wedding days that a wedding planner has remedied or dealt with. Do these things happen at every wedding? Thank goodness they definitely do not. But I’m sharing them because they have happened, and *could* happen, and having a wedding planner on your side to deal with stressful things is an important ingredient for having a great wedding!

[Editor’s note: Let me preface this by saying that these things are not being shared in a “complaining” nature, but an educational, “this could happen to you” nature. The things that a wedding planner or coordinator will do for their couple could easily be compared to an instinct. A gut instinct to do whatever it takes to make sure that your wishes are carried out and that you will have an amazing wedding day, regardless of whether or not it’s in their job description or list of services. A wedding planner/coordinator is excellent at problem solving, and they do these things happily and willingly!] 

1. Handle everything when the caterer is 3 hours late and shows up 20 minutes prior to guests arriving.

2. Concoct a story to get random family members from the bridal suite so the bride feels more comfortable and not overwhelmed by everyone in the room.

3. Grab things the couple/family forgets to buy and/or bring

4. Plunge toilets when they overflow at the church or venue

5. Level barrels and tables with mulch, napkins, rocks, etc

6. Fight (respectfully) any vendors for what the couple requested instead of saying it’s “good enough”.

7. Be the one to take the blame for your decisions that your family members or guests may not like.

8. Add fuel to a generator and start up said generator

9. Setup a whole entire reception in 20 minutes

10. Store your wedding cake in a cool location so it doesn’t melt, and bring it out when it’s time to cut it.

11. Make a cake topper.

12. Make sure that the cake is how it’s supposed to be, and when it’s not, get the baker to fix it…and then fix it themselves too.

13. Deal with a late cake delivery that didn’t arrive until during the reception and make it so the bride never even knew.

14. Have a fork, knife, plate, and napkin ready for your cake cutting

15. Have a damp napkin available during your cake cutting in case you guys decide to smash the cake in your faces.

16. Physically hold a cake up so it can be cut for photos before toppling to the ground.

17. Have drinks ready for you and your wedding party after the ceremony.

18. Lend a car to the ceremony musicians.

19. Make sure your photographer gets particular photos- namely of things that are important to you.

20. Steam your linens when they’re super wrinkled.

21. Figure out an alternative if you are short on napkins/flatware/dishes.

22. Re-create centerpieces to make up for ones that didn’t turn out or died in the heat.

23. Go buy more ice/beer/liquor/water/cups/etc when they run out.

24. Take care of drunk guests

25. Running interference between other vendors and the couple/family and running interference between the divorced parents that hate each other and are now drunk

26. Put your cards in a safe place

27. Move your gifts to the designated person’s car/room

28. Make sure sparklers get put out properly and don’t light guests or you on fire.

29. Put out favors at the end of the evening- and make sure guests know to take them.

30. Place table numbers and/or place cards in the right locations.

31. Make sure the correct number of guests are at each table.

32. Make a “rain call” and handle a last minute tent for weather.

33. Serve a dinner buffet because the couple forgot that their catering for their backyard wedding was just dropped off food and not a staff of people.

34. Move items so they won’t get rained on.

35. When there is a weird, loud, obtrusive noise that is interrupting the ceremony, go find the source of the noise (IE, a tire being changed on a giant semi truck) and request that it holds off for 30 minutes! Oh, and make that request in Chinese thanks to Google Translator.

36. Make sure you have your requested/needed items at your place setting.

37. Find the owners of lost items such as jewelry, shoes, cameras, purses, and more.

38. Keep your vendors on schedule so you can enjoy as much time dancing as possible

39. Gather your bridal party for announcements and special events during the reception.

40. Tell your vendors when to be ready for toasts and cake cutting so they don’t miss it.

41. Sew buttons back on to groomsmen tuxes.

42. Hold receptacles under your dress so you can use the restroom, and then wipe your butt when all you friends are drunk and you need to pee but your dress is too tight.

43. Run out in the rain to guide vendors to where they need to park during a backyard wedding to hide all of the cars.

44. Run to the grocery store and get the Father-of-the-bride’s date a meal because the bride didn’t tell the caterer she was gluten free.

45. Fix your whole wedding reception when a tornado-like storm blows through and destroys everything when it’s already setup.

46. Safety pin your bustle back together because it likely WILL fall.

47. Ask guests not to use iPads or iPhones in the middle of the ceremony aisle (because it will ruin your photos).

48. Making sure limo drivers actually make it to their location instead of getting lost.

49. Setting up chairs (or drying them) at the last moment so the couple can have their ceremony outside (when it had previously rained).

50. Uncorking all the champagne because the caterer is too slow and it’s five minutes until the toast!

51. Move/fix lights so they will effectively do their job of lighting a location

52. Clear dishes and scrape plates when your caterer didn’t do it so you don’t get additional charges from your rental company.

53. Clear fallen branches/moss/debris from your ceremony area when a storm has just rolled through

54. Sit for 2 hours pulling glades of grass from between the panels of the dance floor, because the dance floor install was done overnight and it looked like mini hedges of grass between all of the cracks in the dance floor.

55. Have back up plans on top of back up plans in place, and the ability to think on their feet to remedy a situation!

56. Tailor a groom’s shirt when it arrives in the wrong size.

57. Bug your photographer to get you back from portraits so the reception starts on time.

58. Coax drunk groomsmen out of the bathroom because they can’t figure out how to unlock the stall door.

59. Take apart and rebuild an entire bouquet the bride hates.

60. Create an extra boutonniere(s) when the counts were inaccurate.

64. Hide a wall that fell apart before the reception

65. Find an officiant backup when your minister starts threatening to not marry the couple.

66. Put out fires (literally- people like to mess with the candles on your tables sometimes!)

67. Keep things going when the power goes out.

68. Find the extension cord that someone accidentally unplugged, causing half the lights in a tent to go out.

69. Find and set extra tables during cocktail hour when people who didn’t RSVP show up.

70. Signal musicians on when to start songs during ceremony

71. Make an ATM run when the couple forgets to pay vendors

72. Suggest to parents of children that they tame their kids during special events like the Father of the Bride’s toast

73. Keep copies of special songs on their phones just in case a DJ who’s confirmed he has everything he needs actually doesn’t.

74. Wash blood out of a wedding dress because the bride started her period and didn’t realize it and bled ALL OVER her gown.

75. Help gather/wrangle family for family photos after the ceremony.

76. Go buy $100 in black extension cords when the lighting company shows up with bright orange.

77. Mop the floor on hands and knees when an ice bin leaks water onto the floor minutes before guests arrive.

78. Re-fold 150 napkins when the catering staff can’t seem to get it right.

79. Clean the flower girl’s face with your hand/dress because someone thought it was a good idea to give her candy 30 seconds before the ceremony.

80. Bus glassware from cocktail tables and ledges when the staff isn’t keeping up.

81. Battling the caterer to NOT have coffee cups or sugar caddies pre-set on the tables… and removing them when they won’t listen.

82. Remove the tip jar that the bartenders snuck out (when the client already paid gratuity)

83. Clean up the bridal suite from “getting ready” when housekeeping didn’t come as planned and is now gone for the day

84. Decorate the bridal suite and give the bridesmaids credit

85. Act as an MC when client hired a club DJ who wouldn’t make announcements.

86. Change a dirty diaper.

87. Bring extras of everything you said you would bring- just in case you forget.

88. Clean up your reception in the dark, including hauling trash cans and trash bags

89. Bring you a pretty hanger for your wedding dress in case you didn’t get one.

90. Clean up broken glass on the dance floor when everyone is still dancing oblivious to it.

91. Clean up vomit in a bathroom so that you don’t have to lose your deposit.

92. Drive people to the ER/do the Heimlich

93. Pick up dog poop.

94. Gather groomsmen and bridesmaid gum on their hand seconds before sending them down the aisle.

95. Come to the rescue with a special balm for chaffing when the brides arms are irritated within thirty minutes of wearing her fully beaded gown.

96. Turn lights up, instruct DJ to announce if there is a Dr in the house, get cold water and iced towel from bar staff, remove bride and groom from the room to keep them from panicking and call 911 when the bride’s great uncle has a heat stroke right after the dance floor opens.

97. “Dispose” of a baby copperhead snake because it was slithering around the lawn where the guest tables also were.

98. Cut and serve the wedding cake when the couple forgets to add on the cake cutting fee with the caterer.

99. Fighting with a wedding venue 2 hours before a wedding to convince them to let a DJ play since they just decided that they no longer want to allow any amplified music at their venue.

100. Fix a broken heel as the bridesmaid was about to walk down the aisle.

101. Find a fill-in for a vendor who went into labor the day of the wedding.

 


One can’t help but look at this list and think “Holy crap”! But wedding planners will do all of this not only because it’s their job, but because it’s what they love to do. Helping brides and grooms having wonderful wedding days is what they love to do, and so they will do whatever it takes to make sure this happens! Often times, planners are seen as a luxury, but if you ask me, they should be the very first vendor that a couple books because they save you so much heartache and stress!

So wedding planners- THANK YOU! Thank you for going above and beyond for couples all over! And brides and grooms- I highly encourage you to look into at least hiring your own wedding coordinator… because some of these things could happen at your own wedding, and you certainly don’t want to have to deal with it yourself!

Inspired by rustic sophistication, Catherine and Rob envisioned an elegant garden wedding that was both personal and romantic at the Anne Arundel Manor Golf Course in Harwood, Maryland.

With long farm tables, twisted vines wrapped around Sperry tent poles, intimate seating areas, and florals spilling out onto the tables, it was a dream come true for these two lovebirds. Because food was important to them, they said planning the menu was definitely a highlight, and guests knew it the moment they saw the personalized letterpress dinner menus, raw oyster bar, and special whiskey and cigar tent.

To pay homage to their venue, table numbers were golf courses from around the country which were then fastened to beautiful topiaries to complement the garden aesthetic. One of Catherine’s favorite moments was when she saw Rob for the first time during their First Look. “It was an adrenaline rush. I couldn’t wait to show Rob the dress I’d picked out over a year ago. Seeing him in his handsome tux with a huge grin on his face is something I will never forget.”

We are loving all of the lush florals and romantic garden details under the most gorgeous tent. We love how  Mike B Photography captured this couple’s beautiful day, and Intrinsic Events,LLC did a fabulous job in pulling together all of the amazing details that created this lovely day.

We love the bright floral arrangements created by White Magnolia Designs, and the way they transformed the tent poles (that can be somewhat annoying to work around) into a beautiful focal point with the greenery and blooms cascading down. It was truly the perfect way to dress them up and really give extra emphasis on the romantic garden vibe!

We are so thrilled to share with you today’s wedding inspiration that was curated so perfectly by this incredible team of vendors. Beatbox Portraits  and Vintage Sparkle Rentals created four unique styles using a few basics in an effort to inspire and show you how many elements from decor pieces, design, and even a dress can work for any season if you’re willing to make modifications.

What we really love about this concept is that each style they created has a very different feel, but it is a great way to see that just because you are using the same basic pieces as someone else, the whole look can be completely different based upon how you implement the design, and what details you choose to incorporate. Through each style, they also offered unique food selections that paired well with each season, and A Sophisticated Affair and Amuse Bake Shop created the most delicious looking spreads for both the reception meal and dessert options.

So, what were the basics they started with? The picturesque venue, one gown, a basic arrangement of greenery and white florals by Vivienne and Vine, and a farm table. From these simple elements, this team of vendors produced not one, but four completely different wedding looks to span the seasons, and we think you’re going to love the outcome!

Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com

This team of vendors began their journey through the seasons starting with spring, where they created a Pearlescent Spring Brunch infusing soft shades of pink, lavender, and blue that captured the light and dreamy feel of the season. The bride wore an intricately beaded A-line strapless gown from Bliss Bridal, and they added a tulle skirt overlay and a delicate opal jeweled belt to create a classic romantic look that can later be transformed through the seasons. They used a soft romantic floral arrangement full of lush greenery and large blooms. They chose to create this first look as a brunch, and we love how it allowed the style to take on a fun playful feel, while maintaining a classically romantic look. We love the beautiful watercolor placemats that served as the perfect focal point for each place setting of vintage china and peach glassware.

For the summer season, this team created a Colorful Summer Soiree with bright pops of color infused throughout the design. From the candles, to the place settings, to the fresh fruit salad, color is sprinkled throughout in perfect little touches. The bride’s look was updated with a navy statement necklace, and she wore her hair and makeup in a bolder and edgier style. With the meal incorporating fresh fruits and refreshing treats, we find the menu perfectly tailored for the warm summer months.

Autumn means family, comfort and sharing, so what better way to celebrate than with a Traditional Fall Fete style. We love how they morphed the same gown by adding a unique leaf and floral shoulder detail overlay along with a cathedral length veil. Throughout this style, they kept the focus on food elements that were incorporated into the design. We love that they used pears as place cards, and mixed artichokes, cabbage, radishes, purple lettuce, and berries into the floral arrangements. And don’t even get us started on the family style dining full of the most delicious looking comfort food, and the cutest individual pies added in as a dessert option for guests.Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com Wedding Inspiration For All Four Seasons via TheELD.com

A color palette of deep blue, dove gray, and frosty white set the tone for the sophisticated Winter wedding style. The bride was the picture of cool, Hollywood glamour, with elegant hair and makeup featuring smooth retro waves, a smoky eye and a nude lip. They transformed the beaded gown yet again by pairing it with a refined faux fur capelet in cerulean blue and large statement earrings. We love how they carried this icy style through the table design with gold chargers, china, and crystal goblets in varied shades of blue. With a hearty fair and decadent desserts ranging from tarts to biscotti, and those stunning cakes, the food inspiration offered a bit of warmth to this relatively cool design.

We love the idea of taking a selection of design basics, and transforming it in a variety of ways, and we think this team did a great job in really bringing all four seasons to life with their designs. It is always fun to see how common pieces can be used in so many creative ways, and this team pulled off some incredibly looks that were complete on their own, but it is fun to compare them between styles.

Are there elements you’re looking to incorporate in your design that you’re transforming based upon the season of your wedding?
