TBS Wedding: Sara & Weston

Love love love this couple, they were absolutely amazing to work with! Sara and Weston hired me exactly one year to the day for their wedding date. We had numerous meetings, design conversations, etc, and I think it came together perfectly!

I should say that Sara & Weston were married in Mexico a few weeks prior, so we only planned and designed the reception.









Thank you Sara & Weston for using The Bridal Solution, and we wish you many years of happiness!

TBS Inspiration: DIY Faux Calligraphy

I stumbled across this the other day, and I thought It was an excellent way to reduce the cost of stationary, while giving your invitations an expensive feel. However, I must had, the time it will take to do this may make it less appealing :)

Have your invitations go from this ...



to this ...

TBS Inspiration: Polaroid Guest Book

So many of our brides want a fun, non-traditional guest book for their guests to sign. Gone are the days of the white lined paper, where the book is closed after the ceremony, probably never opened again. You know it's true!

Right now pictures are hot for "guest books." Whether they are using a photo booth, black boards or a memory book, one thing is for sure ... the guests love them, and it make an amazing keepsake after the big day.

My new photo love is Polaroids. It's a fun, creative way to remember each of your guests. And let's face it ... they are going to have a BLAST doing this!!





You may also use these Polaroid pictures as escort cards. Simply write the table number at the bottom of the film, and place back at the reception site. If you have extra time, a nice touch would be adding their picture at their seat on their plate. It's a great touch!

To create a Polaroid guest book, here is what you will need ...

1. You'll need a Polaroid camera of course. There are some great options on there. You will also want to get enough Polaroid film for each guest, or couple. I would be more on the liberal side, you don't want to run out!

2. You'll need to set up a guest book table, scrapbook, photo sticker mounts & plenty of PENS!!

3. Signage is key here. You'll want to place a sign on the table instructing your guests to snap a photo, ad hear to the scrapbook & to leave a message for the Bride & Groom. Super Simple! If it were me, I would also have a larger sign on an easel for your guests to see while their sitting at their seats.



You'll be so glad you have these beautiful images to remind you of your wedding, and the people who were there to support you!

Uncensored 2011: Austin Day 1

Austin has NOT disappointed! I am loving it here. Not sure if it's the community, the atmosphere or just the fact I can think clearer with a full nights sleep :) Today was the first day of Uncensored, and it was FABULOUS! I am taking away some amazing tips and tricks, and I can't wait to apply them to my own business.

Today I had the pleasure of hearing Simon T. Bailey speak about your inner brilliance, or being a "brillianire". It was seriously life changing. Here are a few things that I am taking away after his speech ...

1. "It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you are that holds you back."

2. "Show me 5 to 10 people in your life, and I'll tell you where you're going."

3. "conformity deprives you of creativity."

You should definitely look him up, you'll be happy that you did. And if you ever have the chance to hear him speak, you'll be forever changed!

Tonight we had an "after party" at a local bar down the street. It was so much fun. Some serious vendors joined ... can you say massage therapist, makeup artist, photo booths and mini cakes ... yup, it was amazing! Here are some fun photos!









Happy Planning!
