TIPS FOR PLANNING A WEDDING WITH LITTLE TO NO TIME

TIPS FOR PLANNING A WEDDING WITH LITTLE TO NO TIME

Planning a wedding in a short notice of time can be very difficult, but most definitely possible. It takes patience and diligence to provide the best experience for not only the bride and groom, but for participating vendors as well.

FLEXIBILITY

A huge thing to take note of when planning a wedding in a short amount of time is to take an idea and run with it. You’ll notice that one idea will lead to another, and then shortly you will have planned a full wedding day.

OPEN-MINDED

Often times we have a bride who wants to plan a wedding exactly the way she sees on Pinterest. As most of us know, sometimes it is hard to recreate exactly what she saw on the app, but we do our best. Say she sees an organic wedding arch decked with greenery and draping. We all know that one leaf is different from the next, so when recreating a vision and you think something else will work better, then follow your gut and just do it.

POSITIVE

The best part about planning a wedding in short notice of time is seeing all of the amazing things that can transpire. We start to get creative, host a ceremony in a foreign building, make new connections with vendors we would have never met, and overall host a wonderful wedding. Stay positive, and know that you just have to keep moving.

THE WEDDING DRESS – SO MUCH MORE THAN A DRESS

THE WEDDING DRESS – SO MUCH MORE THAN A DRESS

THE WEDDING DRESS – SO MUCH MORE THAN A DRESS

It’s no secret that your wedding dress is possibly the highlight of your special day.  If you have been searching for your ultimate wedding dress, you will already know that there are literally thousands to choose from.

With so many to choose from it can be very difficult to decide on that one particular dress that says what you need it to. It must speak to you of the exact vision you have of how you want to look on the day.

Whether your budget is small or large, your ideal dress is still an investment in possibly the most important day of your life. And when you look back on your wedding album and relive some of those precious moments, you will know your dress was the one!

Each and every detail is crucial to create the exact image of how you want to look and to feel.  Everything matters. The fabric, the style, classically simple or over-the-top ornate. Whether there is any beading or lace or ruffles. Whether it is off the shoulder or has shoestring straps. Deep backed or high backed, figure hugging or with a full or trailing skirt. All these factors count when you make your final choice.

Think if your wedding is to be indoors or at a venue with smoother surfaces for you to walk on. Then an elaborate design will be much easier to wear and enjoy on the day.  The season may also need to be considered. Although not all brides care about the temperature if their dress is everything they have dreamed of! 

We hope you thoroughly enjoy indulging yourself in the journey of choosing your perfect wedding dress! Especially picturing yourself as the bride that not only draws ‘Oohs and Ahhs’ from your guests, but one that you will remember with joy and a special sentimentality that only brides know.  Relax, take your time and have fun!

3 REASONS WHY I LOVE DESTINATION WEDDINGS

3 REASONS WHY I LOVE DESTINATION WEDDINGS

3 REASONS WHY I LOVE DESTINATION WEDDINGS

 

I honestly feel so happy when I have a trip coming up in my agenda. I think it’s so exciting to step off a plane in a new place (or a beautiful one I’ve visited before).

So for this reason, planning a destination wedding really excites me!

The Weather

table 7041 nano

There’s an exception to every rule, but most of the time, if you pick a hot country to get married in.. you’re going to have nice weather! You’re also going to get beautiful sunsets and golden hour. We love planning weddings anywhere in this world but we especially love it when in winter, couples choose a hot, sunny country!

We get to do something different

Sogno Filetta 6845 nano

A destination wedding is an excuse to break away from wedding traditions. You can think outside the box. Experiencing a new culture and taking on some of their traditions is a great way to add a unique twist to your wedding day.

Spending longer with the wedding party

ClaireMorrisPhotography 496 GlamourFrance

I always think destination weddings are lovely as (most of the time) the wedding party is quite small. The pressure is off having to spend time going round everyone because there’s less people, less stress for the couple. We get to also control how the day is going and make sure everyone is taken care of!

So Much to Think About. So Little Time. That’s Where WE come In.

 

We are more than thrilled and honoured to show you one of our photoshoots from Roquebrune, France.

We went to a secret venue, a perfectly hidden villa, a beautiful place with beautiful landscapes, secret gardens and pool, a perfect place for a wedding to be organized here.

We need to tell you just a few words about this location. It is Exquisite!

A LUXURIOUS RETREAT

Between Menton and Monaco, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin was long one of the most sought-after locations by both artists and the aristocracy of the Belle Epoque. The medieval village huddled around the castle rears up above Cap Martin, a well-preserved haven with typically Mediterranean vegetation.

THE PHOTOSHOOT

Sabine, the owner of Avalon Events Organisation planned a photoshoot at the villa to showcase how beautifully and amazing a secret wedding destination would look like.

THE PHOTOS

We have the photos and we want to share these with you!

We would also like to mention in this article, and also give proper thanks to our collaborators: from florists to photographer, from models and the owners of the villa, Sabine and the team from Avalon Events Organisation we say thank you for all of your time, energy and involvement. 

We credited these amazing people, down below at the end of the article.

Your Ultimate Wedding-Planning CHECKLIST

Your Ultimate Wedding-Planning CHECKLIST

So Much to Think About. So Little Time. That’s Where WE come In.

 

Congratulations! The love of your life has popped the question, and you’ve said yes. Now that you’re on the path to married bliss, it’s time to make the most of your engagement period.

We have a simple but effective checklist for you!

DRAFT YOUR GUEST LIST

If deciding who’s coming (and who isn’t) many wedding planners recommend scaling back and honing in on the people who really matter. Sabine, the owner of AEO suggests to look at extending invitations not as a social obligation, but as being surrounded by those you love and who love you.

FIND AND SECURE YOUR VENUES

Every wedding venue has its pluses and minuses, so find a spot that’s convenient, exciting, and cost-effective.

Also take into account its existing décor. “If you want a red, black, and chrome modern-art-inspired wedding, don’t pick a plantation home and waste money trying to reinvent it.

Once you love a venue, set a wedding date. Avoid holiday weekends. Travel is more expensive for guests, and you’ll pay staffers overtime for working a holiday.

A wedding planner can help find and negotiate with the other vendors you’ll want to start hiring now as well.

DEVISE A RECEPTION TIMELINE

Copy ours below, or create your own play-by-play to keep things moving smoothly.

00 Cocktail hour starts.

1:00 The couple enter and have their first dance.

1:30 At a sit-down dinner, the first course is served. The host and best man offer toasts.

2:30 The main course is served.

3:00 The newlyweds dance with their folks; guests join in.

3:50 The cake is cut.

4:00 Cake and dessert are served.

4:45  The bouquet is tossed.

5:00 The bride and groom depart.

START PACKING

Think like a Boy Scout, and be prepared. You’ll need all of the following gear on the big day.

You Should Bring

  • Your dress, shoes, undergarments, and jewelry
  • The groom’s and attendants’ gifts (if you didn’t give these tokens of appreciation the night before)
  • Your vows, if self-penned, and the wedding bands to hand off to the best man

Your MOH Should Bring

  • Ibuprofen
  • Bobby pins
  • A sewing kit
  • Earring backs
  • Buttons
  • Krazy glue
  • Deodorant
  • Baby powder
  • Stain remover

FINAL ARRANGEMENTS

Day-before tasks include everything from arranging tip envelopes (for certain vendors and waitstaff) to preparing snacks for the getting-ready rooms (unless they’ve been pre-ordered through your caterer).

To look your best on your special day, invest in a mani and pedi (you’ll need the break, we promise!), and after confirming times and addresses with your transportation (limo, etc.) service, head over to your rehearsal dinner and practice, practice, practice.

ENJOY IT

Your monumental day will go by so fast. Take care to stay in the moment.

First, stay close to your new spouse. “Try to stick together the entire reception,” says Kaforey. “Having shared moments of your wedding is so important to set off on your life as a couple.”

Also, don’t forget Dad. If you have a good relationship with your father, build a memory by having a moment with him after you’re dressed, Savage suggests. “It gets forgotten in the first look with the fiancé.” The same reasoning goes for mom, your sibling, or a grandparent.

Tips For Rescheduling Your Event  Due To Coronavirus

Tips For Rescheduling Your Event Due To Coronavirus

Tips For Rescheduling Your Event Due To Coronavirus

We had to postpone a lot of our events this year, especially in the months of March and April and we are sure that many more brides and other people are making this difficult decision given our battle with this global coronavirus pandemic.

So we asked our founder and owner of Avalon Events Organisation, Sabine Bahry Lembo to give us some concise advice on what to do with our already planned and scheduled events for this upcoming spring / summer of 2020:

1. You can postpone without setting another date just yet.

 

I’ve been encouraging my clients to remember that it is okay to make the decision to postpone without knowing when the later date will be. Many have spent months planning this big day.

You’re not expected to come up with a solution in 1 week! If you can nail down a new date, that is amazing! But if not, take some time to weigh your options. Notify your guest list now and let them know an alternative date is to be determined.

2. Be realistic about your guest list and travel

 

Are you doing a local wedding or destination? How many people are you expecting and how soon is your wedding?

This no-doubt has quickly become your biggest decision to make surrounding your wedding (aside from deciding to marry the love of your life!) but taking into account travel needs, the number of attendees and the age of attendees will provide the most clarity on how you need to adjust your wedding day. Making a decision with confidence will allow you to have the clarity to move forward with your plan, whether it’s an adjusted plan or not.

 3. Rebook what you can as soon as possible

 

Gather information from all your major vendors and see what other dates they have available. Do any of the vendors have common open dates? Have you considered a week-day wedding? Weekday weddings are really wonderful as it gives your guests a few days following the celebration to truly enjoy the location and the gathering of friends! We are all in uncharted territory and will do our very best to make your new day just as exciting and joyful as your original.

It may feel like the coronavirus is dictating our lives right now, but the reality is you are in control of your own wedding. There is no one way to go about this, as it is a deeply personal decision.

If you’d like to think of out-of-the-box ways to ensure everyone joins on the original date, try live-streaming your ceremony and selecting a later reception date! Keep in mind this is more of a date adjustment than a total cancellation. And if you have to move your celebration months ahead, you may now be WAY ahead of schedule with the typical wedding planning timeline!
