The Making of a Memory

The Making of A Memory

Wedding Day…one that you will look back on and remember forever! So make your memory one that has your signature stamp of style on it. Celebrate your event by putting your personal touches on it, but let the experts offer advice and creative inspiration for that is why they are the experts! 
            Begin by choosing your venue, if you are traditional, consider a church sanctuary or grand ballroom. If outdoor is more your style, look for historic estates, country clubs, farms, and botanic gardens, for each venue will bring a set of personal choices.  And of course we love our brides that choose Magnolia Hill!!

            Introduce your personality into the ceremony by your choice of bridal gown…an afternoon with your favorite bridal consultant will help you make the right choice.  

 A favorite keepsake may be added or family heirloom…such as wearing mother’s veil, a grandmother’s broach, or a snippet of dad’s shirt sewn into the hem of your dress.  

 All of these tiny details make for a memory to last forever.  Let your ring bearer carry a family Bible secured with a lace ribbon.  

            At the reception share your personality with your guests. Visit with your bakery for a very personal cake as you them know your favorite colors, flowers and flavors. Of course if you find the perfect cake on Pinterest, print and share the picture.

A favorite trend is to bring pictures of parents and grandparents on their wedding day. Share with your guests, a “where we came from”  display of photos.  Let the music of your reception reflect your taste especially in your First Dance.  Perhaps there is a song that is meaningful to the both of you and it is not necessarily a slow dance. Let the party begin, by a bit of nostalgia if that is your style. A favorite addition to the music program is the anniversary dance where every married couple is on the dance floor and one by one they must step off until the longest married couple is left. They turn and offer a few words of advice to the newlyweds.

            All of the little details should be captured by a professional photographer, but the best images ever are the heartfelt memories that you make.

warm wishes, xoxo
