Step and Repeat aka “Red Carpet Wedding Backdrop”

We love the idea of giving your destination wedding that “red carpet event” feeling ~ and nothing says special like a “step and repeat.” A what? A step and repeat is a banner with your custom wedding monogram, theme logo, hashtag, wedding date, or your favorite things ~ it’s really anything you want it to be. Guests step in front of the backdrop and get their photo taken and the next guest “repeats” the process. It’s a great way to make your guests feel fabulously welcomed and comfortable getting their picture taken. In a destination wedding they can be used in a more casual environment at the “welcome party” and then again at the reception. On a budget? You can use vinyl material and local printer to print your logo on it. Use PVC pipe to drape the fabric and forgo the red carpet or try finding a sample. Say…

Tips for the Perfect Wedding Welcome Bag

Chances are your destination wedding is a mini-vacation for your guests and you may not be able to greet all of them when they arrive.  A great way to say “we’re so happy you’re here” is with a custom bag full of goodies! the Want to do the same? Start with a great bag – some kind of carryall that guests will be able to re-use while sightseeing or at the beach. We like canvas which is easily personalized and it’s great after the wedding too ~ a nice (collapsible) keepsake. the Must have items we recommend are: Advil/Tylenol/Aleve (whichever you prefer) a bottle of water sunscreen something savory and sweet (we love sourcing these items from local places at your destination) a map a list that includes the ceremony and reception location and times along with a list of any group activities you have planned. It’s also a great…

Champagne? Yes, please! A Unique Welcome for Your Guests

  Welcoming your guests to your reception with champagne makes guests feel special. We love the idea of this elegant, personal touch and suggest a greeter to ensure your guests see the flutes. Using a table isn’t always effective because once your guests are seated they may not have noticed them. At Daniel and Anna’s wedding, guests were wowed by a champagne skirt presentation! This unique alternative serves not only as a fantastic conversation piece but is a great way to circulate the cocktails. Cheers! We used Jeannette Piecznski and her store on etsy is Lone Star Genealogy.

Erin & Marcus ~ The Ceremony & Reception

The ceremony was held on the beach with steel drums playing in the background and the reception location to follow was on Kelly Green, catered by Townsend Catering with wonderful flair.
