  • Wedding Tip of the Week ~ Establishing a Guest Count

      

    Tip – Establish your guest count first.

    When the engagement happens and the planning begins, brides can often skip the important step of establishing their guest count and go right into other planning details. Your guest count determines a lot – like your venue, your menu, and overall cost. Don’t get stuck in a situation where you book a beautiful venue that seats 100, and then have 250 people RSVP! Or a situation where you end up spending much more than you anticipated, all because of food and beverage cost per person.

    Try this trick to tackle the daunting task of narrowing down your list. Ask your fiancé and both sets of your parents to sit down individually and write every person’s name they would want to invite down on a piece of paper. You do the same. Establish a deadline and then meet to compare your lists for duplicates and discuss everyone’s expectations. Create lists of “definitely” and “maybe.” Walk away from the list when it feels like you can’t narrow down anymore, and come back to it later with a fresh mind and perspective until you get it to where it needs to be.

    My rule of thumb – if you wouldn’t invite someone to dinner and pay for their meal, you shouldn’t invite them to you wedding. Some bride’s lists will be in the 100s and others in the 300s (or more), and that’s okay! Once you establish your guest count, everything else can begin falling into place.

    When our beloved Curator of Dazzle, Callie, got engaged last summer, we knew we were about to plan one of the best parties of 2015 – her wedding!

    Callie and Philip were joined together in union on June 13, 2015 at St. Marks Catholic Church. While this couple never misses an opportunity to share their sense of humor and fun antics, the ceremony was a touching and special tribute to the love they share.

    As guests made their way into the Molly Shi Boren Ballroom for the reception, they were met with a beautiful scene hand-selected by Callie herself. Tables were dressed in subtle shades of ivory and champagne and surrounded by Chameleon Chairs in mixed metals, while the head table and cake table glistened with ivory sequin overlays atop. Elegant floral in shades of pink (Callie’s favorite color) graced each table. Up-lighting in the same shade immersed the Ballroom and created a magical effect on the glistening mirrored bars and sequin draping throughout the room.

    As the evening progressed, toasts were shared, cake was cut and the party began. A surprise appearance by Boomer created buzz and excitement, and great music had everyone dancing the night away. In true Callie and Philip fashion, every guest left with a smile on their face reminiscing the great times and memories shared that day.

    We could not be more excited for our Callie and her happily ever after, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for the Pedlows!

    We love you!
