This lovely Seattle wedding from Manette Gracie Events is full of eclectic chic details and fun pops of aqua! From fun invitations to stylish bridesmaids, everything that Angela & Evan Photography captured is absolutely stunning! The bride, Danielle, is here today to share her planning insight with us…

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

From start to finish I used The Knot as my primary organizational tool. The checklist was a great guide for when I should complete tasks, the guest list tool still serves as my address book today and the seating chart was a life saver!

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

I really looked toward reviews (yelp, my wedding) when deciding our wedding team. Every vendor we were elated with had many glowing reviews and the (very few) we aren’t sure if we’d work with again either didn’t have many reviews or had some questionable ones.

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

I couldn’t exactly put my finger on the “theme” of our wedding until after the fact, but now looking back, I’d say our goal for us and our guests was to have a fun night out on the town. We love Seattle and wanted our guests to have a memorable night downtown with some of Seattle’s best food (Tom Douglas, yum!!) and a lot of fun extras like a photo booth, a whimsical backdrop for the ceremony, cocktails, right down to party paper straws.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

My favorite thing about my wedding was the dancing. We took three private dance lessons to guide us through our first dance and it felt amazing after months of practice to have this moment that was just between the two of us and we killed it! From there, we had an awesome DJ that kept our guests moving all night long and lead to some amazing memories (and pictures).

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Stay organized! Throughout the hectic process of wedding planning it was important to me to stay in control as much and as long as possible so I knew I was doing what I could to make things go smoothly. However, there comes a point where all the organization in the world can’t help you and you just chalk it up to “making a memory”. 

Aw, I love Danielle’s advice… “just chalk it up to making a memory”. So great!

I particularly LOVE the stylish bridal party- girls and guys! The aqua shoes for the girls are just perfect and really complete their look, don’t you think? What are you planning for your bridal party? Something stylish and fun like this one?

    Love love love the wine bottle table numbers! Any info on how you made them? Or were they purchased from Etsy? Would love a link, as I’d love to do something similar at my wedding!

    Hello!
    Your cake toppers are so beautiful! I have also 3 cats. Could I know where did you find them? I have a real cruch for them.
    Thank you!

  3. Danielle (a Bride)

    Thank you, ladies! The wine bottle table numbers were actually made by our amazing wedding coordinators who volunteered to complete a project for me! They were made with chalkboard spray paint and chalkboard pens, based on inspirational photos I found around the web.

    And I LOVE our cake toppers too! Those were purchased on etsy :) https://www.etsy.com/shop/licoricewits

    I am in love with your guest book/picture. May I asked where you purchased it?
