Maddy + Lucas’ Vail Wedding

When I first met with Maddy + Lucas at a cute little coffee shop on Pearl St, I knew we were going to hit it off!

Maddy + Lucas are the definition of love and their wedding was proof!  A group of fantastic vendors came together to put on a party of a lifetime for the happy couple and their family and friends! The rain cleared just in time for a beautiful (but cold) outdoor ceremony, but everyone was all smiles and (happy) tears.

Did I mention that the couples pups played as the ring bearer and flower girl? The proof is in the pictures!

Sharp Dressed Grooms

Let’s get real, when we talk about  weddings, we typically talk about the brides, bridesmaids, flowers, cake, etc.  Sadly, the poor grooms don’t make it to the top of the priority list when planning a wedding!  In all reality, the grooms should be right up there with the brides, starting with the question- “What are you going to wear?”

Here at Platinum Weddings and Events, we want to make sure all our grooms are looking sharp and handsome on what will be one of the most memorable days of their lives and the groomsmen to look just as good as they stand by their best guy and celebrate on his wedding day!

Check out some of these graphics provided by The Black Tux (one of our fav suit & tuxedo rentals!) for some inspiration!

Choosing Your Bridesmaids

Choosing bridesmaids

You’re engaged!  Congratulations!  Now let’s get on that wedding party game.

Choosing your bridesmaids can feel overwhelming.  Maybe you have so many girlfriends that you can’t even wrap around your head around who you’ll bridesmaids will be! We’re here to give you a breakdown on how to effectively choose your top girls.  Choosing your bridesmaids is a monumental part for your big day!  After all, these are the girls that will be standing by your side from the beginning up until you’re marrying the love of your life.  They need to be relationship with meaning behind them.  You’re not just choosing someone to fill an empty spot!  So, first step- brainstorming your wishlist of attendants.  Do you have a sister?  Does your fiance have a sister?  It’s common courtesy to include your fiance’s sister, unless she tells you not to!  Now, let’s work down your list of friends.  Who is your oldest friend?  Are y’all still close?  Is she Maid Of Honor status?  If yes- great!  If no- add her on as a bridesmaid!  Any other close family members (cousins, aunts, etc.) Consider bringing them on to stand by you as you say your ‘I Do’s’.  Who was the first person you called when you got engaged?  Was it a newer best friend (co-worker, roommate, etc.) If yes- bridesmaid status!!

 

There really is no limit to how many bridesmaids you can have, but again, keep in mind that this is a huge day for you.  You want the very best and supportive people standing by your side!  Whether it’s two bridesmaids or 10 bridesmaids, make sure that each gal you pick has a meaningful relationship with you!  The girls you don’t choose as bridesmaids can always be readers, house party or ushers!  They all hold important roles as well and would still be considered ‘Wedding Party’ status!

 

Happy Planning!
