Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Fun Ways to Incorporate Balloons Into Your Summer Wedding!

Posted by on June 9th, 2014

Bold, playful and just a little whimsical, balloons are a unique touch that we’ve come to adore seeing in wedding decor.  Whether your wedding theme is modern, classic, or mountain chic, here are some fun ways to incorporate this trend into your wedding details.

Include balloons in your engagement session. What better way to have a little fun – and end up with stunning photos? We also think they’re perfect for a save the date. Just write your wedding date on the balloons and snap away!

Spell out your true feelings, highlight your new last name, and draw attention to important items (like cake!) at your reception.

Add a splash of color to a monochromatic look. These bright balloons and those all-white outfits? Match made in heaven!

Give them to the flower girl. Because it doesn’t get much cuter than a flower girl holding a giant balloon – especially if it happens to say “here comes the bride.”

Incorporate them into your decor. They look great alongside this dessert buffet, but they also happen to make for a fantastic photo booth or ceremony backdrop.

Get the whole guest list involved. This definitely takes the enjoyment level of family photos up a notch or two!

Breckenridge Wedding Planner, Plans Her Wedding! : Decor Optimization

Posted by on May 8th, 2014

During the wedding season last summer, I took the opportunity to save some decorations that normally would have gone in the trash. I know this may sound bizarre but I thought it was a great chance to give second life to a normally single used decoration. When Wes and I began our wedding planning journey, I knew I wanted to include these items. Whether it was burlap runners or wooden pedestals, I was very happy to be reusing these items!

Another way we kept from having decorations that are single use is by saving our San Pellegrino and Espolon bottles. Two of my favorite liquids! Mineral water and tequila! These bottles normally would end up in our recycling. Instead, I removed the labels, tied a piece of jute around the neck and filled the bottle with a flower. After the wedding, the bottles will simply be placed in the recycling. Stay tuned for the beautiful result!

Flower Girls

Flower girl fashion can vary widely but they are still typically dressed in tones similar to the brides or bridesmaids dresses.  Often dresses and shoes are pastels or pale palettes.

Just like the bride, flower girls can have fun with their accessories!

Flower girls don’t just carry baskets of petals anymore.  A really cute alternative to the basket is to have your flower girls carry signs.  This is a fun idea because your sign can say anything!

Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Mount Princeton Hot Springs

Posted by on April 15th, 2014

My girlfriends and I got together last weekend to catch up on trash magazines and soak in one of Colorado’s finest natural hot springs; Mount Princeton Hot Springs in Nathrop, Colorado.  Imagine my surprise (and secret delight) to see the staff preparing for a wedding!  As a Colorado wedding planner I was immediately intrigued, and set out to find a tour guide. Gill Engles the onsite concierge was kind enough to show me around the wedding ceremony meadow and the reception pavilion.  What a hidden gem–I just had to share!  The ceremony meadow sits in front of Chalk Creek with lovely flowerbeds all around and an amazing bridge for a dramatic entrance no bride could resist.  Photo by Smitten Photography.
