5 Ways to De-Stress While Planning Your Wedding

Wedding Planning Dallas | 5 Ways to De-Stress While Planning Your Wedding

 

Being engaged is a whirlwind experience… it’s a precious season to share with your sweetheart, and a beautiful time to connect with loved ones. However, between all the wedding planning decisions and parties in your honor, sometimes it feels like the spotlight is always on you. The bride (and/or groom!) has to make countless decisions about the big day: Ivory linens or blush? Which shoes will the bridesmaids wear? Who’s driving Grandma to the ceremony? What time should you do a first look? 

It adds up! Prevent wedding planning overwhelm by taking time for yourself. Start with these top five tips to de-stress while planning your wedding:

5. Get regular manicures: Put this at the top of your to-do list! As a bride-to-be, you’ll have people asking to see your gorgeous ring all the time. All the sudden, your hand is extremely popular! Make sure your nails are ready to show off that sparkly gem. Treat yourself to regular manicures to guarantee an hour of relaxation away from all the planning.

4. Exercise often, sleep well: Trust us, it’s important. You’ll feel better (and look great on the wedding day) if you take good care of yourself. It might be tempting to skip out on these essentials, but you should prioritize self-care over wedding planning—always. Stick to a routine; it will help keep balance in your daily schedule, and set a dependable rhythm for your week amidst planning craziness.

3. Delegate: Feeling overwhelmed? Delegate what you can (see also #1!). Make a list of the wedding decisions that are truly most important to you. If a planning task doesn’t land on that list, delegate it. Invite your bridesmaids over to stuff invitations, or take your mom up on that offer to assemble favors. If a friend asks how they can help, have a short list of simple tasks in mind so you can delegate.

2. Carve out date nights (no wedding talk allowed!): Don’t let the wedding overshadow your relationship. Engagement is a precious, short season of life—you deserve to enjoy it! Remember that the wedding day is just the start of a lifetime together… it is far more important to build the foundation of a marriage than it is to have the perfect shade of napkin at your reception. Set aside scheduled date nights with your soon-to-be husband (no wedding talk allowed!). Reconnect, fall in love all over again, and have fun.

1. Hire a wedding planner! We can’t stress this one enough. Sure, we may be biased… but objectively, there are so many reasons you’ll be grateful for a planner. An experienced coordinator will help you make decisions that bring your dream wedding day to life. They’ll keep you on track, on time, and on budget. They’ll also connect you with top-notch vendors who will go above and beyond to make your big day a success. If there is anything you do to give yourself peace of mind, hire a wedding planner!

 

We hope these 5 tips make your wedding planning experience a bit smoother. Don’t forget to celebrate the little things (and feel free to pop the champagne over small victories!). Though there are a lot of tasks to accomplish, wedding planning shouldn’t overwhelm your relationships with the people you love. Keep it all in perspective!

We specialize in executing personalized, memorable celebrations. We’re here to take the stress away from you during engagement, and to bring you a wedding day perfectly tailored to your dream vision.

Wedding Flowers for Moms

Wedding Flowers for Moms | Happy Mother's Day from A Stylish Soiree

Wedding Flowers for Moms 

Happy Mother’s Day to all our amazing moms out there! We hope you’ve enjoyed our recent posts about including Mothers of the Bride and Mothers of the Groom in your wedding celebration. Today, we’ve got one more post for you to wrap up the Mother’s Day weekend… wedding flowers for moms!

It is traditional for the bride’s and groom’s parents to process down the aisle before the bridal party enters the ceremony. The seating of the parents typically signals the beginning of the wedding ceremony; guests’ attention is directed toward the aisle, and anticipation heightens for the procession to begin.

Since all eyes will be on the MOB (Mother of the Bride) and the MOG (Mother of the Groom) as they are escorted down the aisle, you may wish to adorn both mothers with wedding flowers. This distinguishes both ladies as respective mothers of the bride and groom, and is a polite gesture of honor toward your parents. Plus – if the moms are a bit nervous – a floral arrangement can give them something to do with their hands, making their journey down the aisle a little less intimidating.

There are quite a few floral options for moms! Any of the following wedding flowers can be personalized to complement your bridal party bouquets, and each of them are acceptable as floral arrangements for MOB and / or  MOG:

  • Wrist Corsage: a traditional option, the wrist corsage is a small gathering of blooms affixed to a bracelet-style cuff to be worn on the wrist. Wrist corsages allow moms to keep their hands free – making them an ideal choice if your MOB and MOG would like to carry a clutch or handkerchief during the ceremony.
  • Dress Corsage: another traditional selection, a dress corsage is a similar grouping of blooms that (instead of the wrist) is pinned to the left-side lapel of a jacket or a dress. Dress corsages have faded from popularity in recent years, but they are a classic arrangement – and may be a favorite for grandmothers, especially if they are wearing a long-sleeved jacket that makes it difficult to wear a wrist corsage.
  • Bouquet: some brides include a full bouquet for their MOB and / or MOG. These arrangements can be identical to the bridesmaid bouquets, or may have some distinguishing floral element (for example, a slightly different complementary color, or a unique sprig of greenery added only to the mothers’ bouquets).
  • Posy: similar to a bouquet, a posy is simply a smaller version of a classic bouquet. This is a popular choice for MOBs and MOGs, as it gives moms something to hold while they walk down the aisle – but is not cumbersome after they’ve been seated. Posies are a lovely way to distinguish moms as parents of the happy couple!
  • Floral Clutch: for a unique twist, ask your florist to embellish a clutch purse for your MOB and / or MOG. A few thoughtfully arranged blooms affixed to her clutch can be great way to spruce up your moms’ wedding-day attire, and serve a practical purpose. Plus, she won’t have to worry about managing both a bouquet and a purse as she makes her debut on the aisle.

So, which one suits your style? Any of these arrangements can be a beautiful way to honor your MOB and MOG in the wedding ceremony. And don’t forget, these can be offered to grandmothers as well! Talk with your MOB and MOG to see which flowers they might prefer, then let your florist create a unique piece for each mom. We would be honored to help!

To all the mothers out there… Happy Mother’s Day, and thank you for all that you do. We are lucky to work closely with MOBs and MOGs, and it is a joy to see their love and support throughout the entire planning process. We hope you all enjoy a lovely day celebrating your moms and mothers-in-law!

And to our vendor friends: Happy Mother’s Day to all the working mamas out there. In wedding industry, we know many of you work long and late hours to serve your clients wholeheartedly – and yet, in all the chaos, you still make time for your little ones. We admire all the moms out there who are doing their best to love their families and their businesses! Balancing both is no easy feat, and we are honored to work alongside so many mamas who do it well. Happy Mother’s Day; you deserve to celebrate!

Mother of the Groom Duties

Wedding Planning | Traditional Mother of the Groom Duties | A Stylish Soiree

Wedding Planning | Traditional Mother of the Groom Duties

As Mother’s Day draws nearer, we’re thinking of all the special women we get to work with on a daily basis. While we often collaborate closely with the bride and her mom, there’s another key player to consider: the Mother of the Groom (MOG)! While she may not take on quite as a big a role as the MOB, she’s a very important consideration in the wedding planning process – and a very important part of the bride’s new family!

How can you include the Mother of the Groom in your wedding planning? We’ve got you covered. Take a look at our list of the traditional duties of the MOG:

  • Help introduce family members who have not yet met
  • Assist with collecting guest addresses for the groom’s family
  • Consult the bride and her mother about the preferred MOG attire for the wedding day
  • Consult the bride about groom’s attire and assist in finding it if needed
  • Call any guests on the groom’s side of the family who have not yet RSVP-ed
  • Offer to run any errands that might assist the bride. Examples include:
    • Pick up the dress
    • Pick up invitations from the printer
    • Handle registry exchanges
  • Plan and host the rehearsal dinner
  • Pin the boutonniere on the groom—while not mandatory, this can be a sweet photo opportunity! Sometimes it’s easier for the planner to take lead here; we have plenty of experience pinning boutonnieres and can help make sure it’s affixed properly. Ask your MOG about this, and offer her the opportunity to pin the boutonniere if she’d like.
  • Dance with the groom on the wedding day. Consider letting her pick the song! It’s a relatively small decision that means a lot to the MOG and her son.

That being said, weddings are becoming more and more personalized… you certainly aren’t required to adhere to traditional duties if they don’t suit your style. Let this list be a conversation starter for you and the MOG; find out what her expectations are, and create a game plan that works for both of you.

In addition, you might consider inviting her to these milestone moments (while not traditionally required, these are nice gestures of inclusion if you choose to incorporate them):

  • Dress Fitting
  • Bridal Showers
  • Cake Tasting
  • MOG Dress Shopping (if she wants help finding the perfect dress, offer to accompany her and assist her in finding a flattering gown that suits her own style)

You may also wish to ask her about any personal details she would like to incorporate into the ceremony. Ask if she’d like to contribute “something borrowed” to your bridal ensemble, or inquire about family photos to display at the reception. Your interest in including her will go a long way in solidifying a good impression with your future mother-in-law!

As we’ve mentioned before, our best advice of all is to prioritize relationship over any planning details! You and the MOG are about to become family for a lifetime. Let your relationship be the primary focus throughout engagement: What can you do to include her in the process? How can you get to know each other better? Focus on the relationship over any minute details… it’s a big help to start your marriage off on the right foot, and you’ll have more fun along the way!

Happy Mother’s Day from the Team at A Stylish Soiree! As a wedding planner in DFW, we are lucky to work with such amazing moms and daughters. From new moms to empty nesters and everyone in between, we wish you the happiest day celebrating with the ones you love.

Sweet Mother-Daughter Details to Incorporate into Your Wedding Day

 

Wedding Planner in DFW | Sweet Mother-Daughter Wedding Day Details

Wedding Planner in DFW | Mother-Daughter Wedding Details

 

It’s hard to believe May has already arrived, and the entire spring season is flying by! In just one week, Mother’s Day will already be here… and we couldn’t be more excited! This month, we’re bringing you all kinds of tips focused on mom and her role in the big wedding day.

As a wedding planner in DFW, we get to work with lots of mother-daughter duos as we plan their celebration. A wedding is such an treasured occasion for both of you – and there’s something special about sharing in the excitement together.

Many of our sweet brides want to acknowledge their mother-daughter relationship on the day of the wedding – and we think it’s so beautiful when they do. So today, we’re giving out a few of our favorite mother-daughter details you can incorporate into your own special day!

 

  • Something Borrowed: Ask your mom if she would be willing to contribute “something borrowed” to your wedding-day ensemble. Let her have fun finding the perfect detail to add to your ensemble (perhaps her own wedding pearls, an heirloom handkerchief, or a pair of delicate earrings).
  • Bridal Accessories: Not every bride wants to don her mother’s wedding dress, but there are endearing ways to incorporate her wedding-day style into your own. Consider adding pearl beads from her gown into a delicate hairpiece of your own, or re-purpose lace from her dress into your veil. You’ll always have a piece of her with you on the wedding day!
  • Day-of Notes: Consider writing a note to your mom (and / or dad) for her to read on the big day. After all, it’s an emotional day for her too! This is a perfect opportunity to express your emotions and also give her a keepsake she will treasure for years to come.
  • Finishing Touches: Let your mom be the one to make any finishing touches on your bridal look – buttoning the dress, fastening your necklace, adjusting your veil. And don’t forget to have your photographer capture these sweet moments on camera!
  • Raise a Toast: Thank your mom publicly for everything she has done for your wedding day – and all the years leading up to it. The rehearsal dinner can be an ideal place to make a brief speech about how much your mom means to you; she’ll appreciate it more than you know.
  • Program Note: Consider giving a thoughtful “shout out” to mom in your printed wedding program. Include a sentence or two thanking her (and / or your dad) for their blessing and for celebrating the occasion with you. Keep it a surprise… she’s sure to tear up in the pews!

 

Any of these mother-daughter moments are sure to spark a special memory for both of you. Our best advice? Make your mother-daughter relationship a priority over any planning details. A wedding is one day (albeit a very special one), but your relationship with your mom goes far beyond that. Engagement is a short season, filled with so much excitement and anticipation for the most wonderful day of your life. Share the excitement with your mom, and create opportunities to make memories together… dress shopping, coffee dates, or unexpected gifts. These are the moments with your mom that you’ll treasure for a lifetime (not a trite disagreement over silver or gold chargers!).

Simply make time for you and your mom to enjoy each other’s company and share in the joy of the big day – you’ll cherish the memories for years to come!

Happy Mother’s Day from the Team at A Stylish Soiree! As a wedding planner in DFW, we are lucky to work with such amazing moms and daughters. From new moms to empty nesters and everyone in between, we wish you the happiest day celebrating with the ones you love.

Ally + Austin

Wedding Planner Dallas TX | Ally + Austin: The Laurel

We are so thrilled to unveil Ally and Austin’s wedding gallery today. They might just be the sweetest couple we’ve ever worked with! Ally and Austin were so over-the-top in love… and it showed in every moment of their big day. Amidst all the wedding planning, they never lost sight of the utter joy they’ve found in each other.

We’re in love with their choice of color: lavender and violet, with accents of greenery and sage. Could this be any prettier for a spring wedding? Potted herbs were the perfect finishing touch!

Both the bride and groom were very laid back and down-to-earth, so we incorporated a lot of natural, organic detail into their reception design. The Laurel provided a stunning backdrop for both ceremony and reception, featuring a Hill Country-esque mix of hardwood beams and Austin stone.

For the ceremony, our floral team created an organic floral arch, with lush potted herbs placed around the base of the installation. It set the tone for an intimate ceremony—one so filled with love, we doubt there was a dry eye in the entire venue.

Best of all? Their wedding was filled with the sweetest personal details: Austin lovingly created both of the wedding bands himself—featuring a completely handmade design for his bride. He also crafted the groom’s cufflinks by hand. Ally incorporated pieces of her grandmother’s handmade lace into the ceremony and reception décor, carrying a treasured family heirloom into the next generation.

These details are just the beginning… Ally and Austin included a personalized touch for every facet of their celebration. Their sweet love story was the foundation for a beautiful day, and a lifetime of happiness together.

Anyone who was present at Ally and Austin’s ceremony commented that there was definitely something special about this adorable couple and their wedding-day celebration. And we think that when you see their gallery, you’ll agree: Ally and Austin’s love for each other shines in every moment from their big day!

Above and Beyond: 32 Crazy Things We’ve Done Behind The Scenes

Dallas Wedding Planner | Behind the Scenes: 25 Things Your Wedding Planner Will Do That You Won't Even Know About

Dallas Wedding Planner | Behind the Scenes with A Stylish Soiree

No matter how much preparation goes into your big day, there will always be a hiccup or two on the day of the wedding. As a Dallas wedding planner, we’re here to make sure you don’t even know about those little setbacks! We pitch in, problem-solve, and smooth things over so that you, as the bride, don’t have to worry about a thing.

Luckily, we’ve got a decade of experience under our belts; we believe detailed planning from the get-go significantly narrows your chances of any hiccups arising. That being said, it’s always good to be aware of “what could happen” and to know that, in the event of a small snafu, your Dallas wedding planner has it covered. Not every planner is willing to jump in and do the dirty work, but here at A Stylish Soiree we’ve got your back no matter what. The items on these list don’t happen at every wedding (thankfully!), but they have happened before!

Here’s a sample of just a few tasks we’ve been known to complete behind the scenes…

  1. Scraping bird poop off a bride’s dress using a Shout wipe, just before the ceremony
  2. Running to the store to get fire-ant poison for the ant mounds that were all over the ceremony venue
  3. Being family therapist—solving arguments among family members without involving the bride
  4. Fixing boutonnieres that break or get crushed (sadly, guys don’t have the best reputation for carefully protecting our flowers!)
  5. Going to the liquor store to re-stock the bar because the bride seriously underestimated how much her guests would drink…
  6. Facilitating drunk guests at the end of the night—and getting them into cabs for a safe ride home
  7. Cutting the groom off, so that he’ll actually make it down the aisle and remember the ceremony!
  8. Adjusting a bride’s dress: constantly monitoring dress length, bustle status, and boob placement (gotta make sure they stay in the dress!)
  9. Sewing, safety pinning, and stain-removing bridesmaids’ dresses
  10. Going to Mens Wearhouse on the day of the wedding to get pocket squares, pants, and shoes for a Father of the Bride who didn’t have them
  11. Going to the store to get plates, utensils, cake cutters, ice, serving spoons, etc.
  12. Going to the store to get bar supplies, beer and wine openers, towels, shakers, etc.—anything that the “freelance bartenders” the couple hired forgot to bring
  13. Buying cake toppers, table numbers, chair signs, etc. because someone forgot to bring them
  14. Re-icing a wedding cake after the frosting started to melt
  15. Re-structuring a cake after it started to lean
  16. Re-decorating a cake that was sent with the wrong decoration
  17. Fixing delivery mishaps—like lounge furniture delivered to the wrong event (yikes!)
  18. Using vendor relationships to fix any problems (we were able to get another vendor to use their box truck to deliver the lounge furniture to the correct wedding… thank you, vendor friends!)
  19. Cleaning bridal/groom suites
  20. Cleaning spilled drinks/glass off of the dance floor (while guests are still dancing!)
  21. Cleaning up vomit in the toilet trailers at a wedding on a private residence
  22. Emptying trash cans, when the caterer won’t
  23. Bussing tables, when the catering staff won’t
  24. Moving tables, chairs, and furniture
  25. Assembling IKEA furniture for lounge area
  26. Clamping linens to tables that are blowing away due to wind
  27. Holding crying babies during the ceremony
  28. Wrangling children in the right direction
  29. Taking left over items at the end of the night
  30. Storing items after the wedding
  31. Dumpster-diving for an heirloom ring that the grandmother tied on the the bride bouquet and didn’t tell anyone! The bouquet was thrown away with all kinds of garbage at the end of the night. Luckily, we did recover the family ring!
  32. Picking up the couple’s dog and bringing him to the wedding (and we’re so glad we did… guests loved him!)

 

This list is just the beginning; our job as your Dallas wedding planner runs the gamut of odd jobs and behind-the-scenes tasks. If anything, we believe this list is further evidence that a planner is so worth the investment… let us handle these little hiccups, so you and your family can relax and enjoy the day without ever knowing about any small obstacles that might crop up. You don’t want mom to be dumpster-diving at the end of the night! Let us handle it… Because ultimately, no matter how crazy things get, we love what we do!

At A Stylish Soiree, we believe our vendor team is just that—a team. Luckily for us, we work with amazing vendors who can help us pull off any event, no matter what kind of hiccups arise. On your wedding day, we’re just one part of a much bigger picture. That means nobody is superior on our vendor team; nobody is above pitching in to help… whether that means moving chairs, holding a crying baby, or safety pinning a bridesmaid dress. We’re not afraid to get down and dirty if that’s what it takes to deliver your dream day!

 

Morgan: Bridal Portraits

Can you believe it? This pretty lady is officially a Mrs.! Morgan and Ryan tied the knot this weekend in a beautiful ceremony, and then celebrated afterward at The Room on Main. We can’t wait to showcase more details about their DFW wedding, but in the meantime… we’re so excited that we can finally unveil Morgan’s stunning bridal portraits!

Her mermaid-silhouette gown was exquisite from head to toe. A hint of blush color accentuated the lace embellishment details—perfectly complemented by her mantilla veil. Paired with simple and elegant jewelry, Morgan’s bridal look was definitely one for the books.

Andrea Elizabeth Photography never fails to impress. She perfectly captured both Morgan’s bridal style and her sweet personality. Take a look at this gorgeous bride, and stay tuned for images from her wedding day:

Jacy + Sam

Wedding Planner DFW: Jacy + Sam’s Wedding Day at The Tribute

We’re starting the week off right with some lovely wedding inspiration! Jacy and Sam tied the knot just a few weeks ago, in a lovely ceremony and a beautiful reception at The Tribute in The Colony. With an ivory and blush color palette, they celebrated in classic style. We especially loved the bride’s lace-trimmed dress (look at the embellishment detail!), and the newlywed couple’s grand exit through shimmery bubbles blown by their smiling guests.

The couple and the venue were absolutely perfect; what could be better than a couple in love on a picturesque golf course? As our talented photographer Tracy Autem puts it: “The course views and the sliver of the lake in the background paired with these two made for a very happy photographer… and Sam is so sweet to Jacy!”

Their love for each other certainly shines through in Tracy’s photos! This happy newlywed couple is destined for a fairytale marriage. It was a pleasure to work with Jacy and Sam (and their sweet families), and are so honored that we could be part of their special wedding day.

Marisa + Eric

Wedding Planner Dallas | Marisa + Eric’s Classic Wedding at The Room on Main

It seems like just yesterday that Marisa and Eric tied the knot, but it’s already been a few weeks since they became Mr. and Mrs! We’re excited to share photos from Marisa and Eric’s big day—a romantic celebration in pretty shades of blush and ivory.

Their ceremony took place at Royal Lane Baptist Church, in the presence of the sweetest family and friends. We loved to see the joy on all their guests’ faces as these two sweethearts officially became husband and wife. This happy union was definitely worth celebrating!

Guests headed over to The Room on Main (one of our most popular venues!), where ample natural light and a sweeping Downtown Dallas view set the scene for an elegant occasion. We crafted tall floral centerpieces in the bride’s classic color palette: soft ivory blooms, accented with blush roses. A great playlist and fun photo booth kept guests entertained all night long.

One of our favorite details? The couple’s table numbers! Marisa and Eric printed photos from their past and used the corresponding year as the table number. Guests loved seeing the childhood photos, and pictures of Eric and Marisa’s relationship over the years.

Take a peek at a few images from Eric and Marisa’s big day! We were honored to be a part of their celebration, and we have no doubt that they will share many happy years together.

We are grateful to all our vendors for collaborating on this event; we could not pull off a successful celebration without their talents. A special thank you to Beau Vaughn Photography for capturing these moments:
