Color Trends For Your Spring 2015 Wedding

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Choosing colors for your wedding will help bring out your personality for your special day, but deciding which colors to use can be a headache because there are SO many options! Our wedding experts have chosen their top picks for spring 2015 wedding colors!

Aquamarine - We think this color would look great for a beach wedding. Complimenting the colors of the sand, it is a flattering color on most skin tones.

Tangerine - Add a pop of color to your bouquet with bright flowers! Adding a few bright colors into the mix will make the bouquet uniquely you!

Purple -  A timeless, classic, and we think a rather “royal” color; there are so many different ways to use purple in your wedding. We love the idea of different shades/flowers on the table at the reception combined with purple napkins to tie it all together.

No matter which colors you choose, we know your wedding will be one of the most beautiful days in your life! For more information about planning your wedding, visit our website.

Fun Ways To Add A Touch of Georgia To Your Wedding

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Your wedding day is a time to celebrate you and your spouse but also to share with family and friends the things that mean the most to you. Many couples use their ceremony or reception to show their personality. Here are a few suggestions to show off your peach state pride on your big day!

We love this idea of incorporating fresh fruit for your guests to take home. What better way to show your peach state pride than with a peach?

 You can’t say “Georgia” without thinking about Coke! Give your guests a taste of the south with old fashioned glass coke bottles.

Send your guests home with a “Georgia on my mind” koozie.

For a unique (and beautiful) bouquet, add raw cotton which is also one of Georgia’s top crops!

Instead of a traditional guestbook, have your guests sign a Georgia “guestbook” that you can display in your home.

Beach Wedding Tips

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Beach Wedding on St. Simons Island

The beach can provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding but there are many details you will want to remember before you say “I do” at the ocean’s edge.

Check the tides- Before you set a time for your wedding, check a local tide chart to make sure there will be enough sand for you to stand on during the ceremony. In places like St. Simons Island, the tide can completely cover the beach during high tide which would make a beach wedding impossible at certain times of the day.

Do you need a permit?- Some towns require you to have a permit to get married on the beach. Some require you to reserve a specific space on the beach and in some areas, you can just walk right out and get married! Make sure you do your research and find out if you need a permit or to reserve a specific part of the beach. The last thing you want is the local authorities crashing your beach wedding!

Provide sunscreen for your guests- You may think that your guests will automatically wear or bring sunscreen, but the reality is that most of them will not. As a courtesy (and to prevent your guests from turning into lobsters), set up a sunscreen station where your guests can apply sunscreen. You may also want to provide some fun sunglasses for those who forgot to bring theirs! Your guests will appreciate it. And while we are on the subject of sunscreen, make sure you and your bridal party have applied an ample amount as well.

Offer refreshments- As a courtesy to your guests, especially on a hot day it is a good idea to offer some cool refreshments before and after the ceremony. Fruit infused water, sweet tea and lemonade are just a few that you may want to consider offering.
