Destination Wedding Planner: 5 Cool Groomsmen Gifts They Will Actually Use

Posted by on March 20th, 2017

If you’re reading this, then you’re probably having a hard time looking for the perfect groomsmen gifts. To help you out, here are some practical yet personalized groomsmen gifts your friends will love:

  1. Personalized mugs with caricature

Add a splash of fun to the usual gift mug by having your groomsmen’s faces hand painted on it. These mugs are perfect for toasting during the rehearsal dinner or for holding alcohol on your stag party. You can easily find online sites that sell personalized mugs. Have them add your groomsmen’s name below the caricature or print your wedding date underneath.

  1. Travel bags for the adventurous pal

If you’re having a destination wedding, why not give your guys a travel bag to mark the day? You can choose from a variety of sizes depending on the length of your event. You can find bags small enough for a weekend getaway or big enough for a week-long stay at the beach. Stylish travel bags are always welcome gifts for friends who are frequent travelers. They can also be versatile and be used for work or the gym

  1. An organizer for the messy fellow

We all have that buddy who constantly loses their keys, pens, or watches. For your guy friend, this Dock ‘n Roll will help him organize his keys or phone so he’ll never have to fumble around looking for them. It also has multi-functional features with slots for his phone, key chain, and watches or bracelets. You can also give a tie organizer, for friends who have an abundance of ties. Now he can keep his room clean and keep his ties off the floor.

  1. Funky accessories

A pair of socks with fun and colorful designs will definitely add some pop to your groomsmen’s attire. They’re fun to wear and can be worn wherever he likes – be it at work, the gym, or even on your wedding day. Level up their style by giving them a funky pair of bifocal glasses. These funky accessories are the perfect mix of practicality and style.

  1. Grooming materials

Any well-groomed guy knows that keeping your beard trimmed or your face fuzz-free is a full-time job. This Barber in a Box set comes with a well-designed razor, sharpening stone, pair of scissors, and comb that are ready to use and easy to carry around. With this kit, friends can keep their beard, stubble, goatee, Vandyke or muttonchops always on point.

Colorado Wedding Planner: My Favorite Moments of 2016

Posted by on December 30th, 2016

With less than two days until 2017 I find myself both thinking ahead and looking back.  Every year at this time I dig through all of my photos from the previous year’s weddings and put together a group of my favorite shots. Writing this post reminds me of all those special moments that, as a wedding planner I was privileged to be a part of.  Thank you!

Colorado Wedding Planner: My Favorite Moment of a Wedding…

Posted by on December 20th, 2016

I think this might be my favorite post ever. Every wedding planner has their favorite aspect of a wedding. Some love the dress, some love the ring, some love the first dance. My favorite moment is when everyone is seated, I have sent the entire wedding party down the aisle, I’ve cued the music change and now I’m waiting with the bride and her father to send them down the aisle. This proud dad is about to give his little girl away and he is just so proud, excited, nervous, anxious (the list goes on) and I’m there to witness the all those last minute hugs, kisses and conversations. I feel so incredibly lucky to be a part of such a special moment.

Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Refresh Spa

Posted by on July 6th, 2016

Wedding season is here! If you are a bride (or anyone with a pulse) and reading this, you should definitely do yourself a favor and book an appointment for some pampering at Refresh Spa. Johnna and I recently had the opportunity to experience what everyone is talking about. Refresh Spa is located in Grand Timber Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado. When you arrive, you immediately feel calm. After changing in the locker room you are welcomed into the tranquil lounge where you relax, choose your favorite scent and your await your treatment. We experienced the facial, a massage and a pedicure. The facial and the massage were both out of this world. The therapists listened to exactly what was going on and the treatments focused on those areas of need. After the two treatments, we moved onto the nail salon. This area lends itself more to a social vibe where you can drink champagne, hang out with your bridesmaids, snack on food and oh ya, get your nails done. Johnna and I had a such a great experience. Thank you Refresh Spa, we will be back!
