Stacie and John's Wedding

Here is another beautiful September wedding! Stacie and John were married at Mendenhall Inn in Delaware. Stacie and her bridesmaids started their day by getting their hair done by the ladies at Gloss Salon and makeup done by Janet, from Face the Occasion. Everyone looked amazing and their hair and makeup stayed in place all day and night! We created their stationery suite to match their color scheme of all different shades of purple and Honeybunches, did a fabulous job creating their bouquets to match as well. Their ceremony was held in the ballroom and was officiated by The Wedding Pastor, Andy Mahaney. Synergetic Sound and Lighting provided the draping for the room and up lit it in purple. When it was time to get the party started, Steve from Silver Sound DJ's got the guests on dance floor and Martin's Video captured all the fun! A huge thank you to Jennifer Childress Photography for these incredible images!

Congratulations Stacie and John!

Tell us about yourself: 
I'm Erin Proud, owner and principal consultant of Proud to Plan. I started this business in 2007, and have seen it develop into something way more than I could have ever imagined!

Where do you live?: 
Wilmington, DE

Give us three words that best describe your personality:
Optimistic, hilarious and tenacious

How did you get involved in the event industry?:
From an early age, I gravitated towards planning things- I was head cheerleader in high school and very active in student council. When I went to college, I majored in Hotel/Restaurant Management and took a concentration in event planning. During those years, I interned in all aspects of special events at an Atlantic City casino, and upon graduating college, took a position coordinating events for a large global Pharmaceutical company. I took a side job managing weddings and loved it so much I decided to try and make it a full time gig!

What's your favorite part of a couple's wedding day?:
Showing the bride the reception room for the first time! There's nothing better than hearing her gasp and seeing the reaction to everything she's worked so hard to plan. It's like watching a dream come true right before your eyes!

When you're not doing events, what do you do?:
I'm the secretary of the University of Delaware's Hospitality Alumni Association. We put together networking events and give current students the opportunity to learn from those of us that have been there before! I mentor a few students each year and make sure I speak in one class every semester. My education was so important in helping me realize my dream; I really enjoy paying it back to the University that got me here!

Do you have any hobbies? Or what do you do for fun?:
I love eating out and meeting friends for drinks! I rarely have free time, so when those opportunities arise, I jump at them!

Fun question, if you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?:
Chickie's and Pete's crab fries. And a Blue Moon with 2 orange slices.

Preparing for Your Honeymoon

Image found through Google
The wedding is now over and all you want to do is get away, escape your life, and relax as a newly married couple on your honeymoon. But, the only way to really make your honeymoon as stress free as it's supposed to be, you have to be sure to prepare well in advance for your departure. Whether you're going away for a week or a month, these tips will help you head off to your honeymoon well prepared and carefree.

Medical Preparation
Depending on where your travels take you, it's important to do your research on what type of pre-travel medical precautions you should take, including shots and antibiotics. If you're going on an African safari, you should be prepared to get 4-6 vaccinations before you go and many need to be scheduled months in advance, so keep that in mind. It's also best to have your doctor write you prescriptions for all of your medications, so you can bring them with you in case you misplace your medicine.

Determine what documents you need depending on where you are traveling. It's better to be safe than sorry, so the more documentation you have the better. (Tip: Make two copies of all of them and leave one set of copies in your luggage, one set in your carry-on and keep the originals on you in a money belt). It's also safe to leave your family or friends with copies of these important documents as well, along with your itinerary, hotel phone numbers, and any other information they may need to know. 

Important Documents
-Plane ticket
-Credit and Debit cards (call your banks to tell them you will be traveling so they do not put an alert on your card and stop your funds)
-Write credit and debit card numbers down on a piece of paper and carry it with you in case you lose them
-Health insurance cards

Figure out what type of terrain you will be traveling in and what luggage would work best. Are you just going to carry-on, are you backpacking, or can you take full size luggage? Research your airline and TSA rules and regulations as well if you're traveling by plane, to make sure that your carry-on and checked bags are the correct size and that you won't be charged extra. Be sure to also weigh your luggage before you leave and make sure it is at least 5lbs under the limit in case there are any discrepancies between your scale and theirs. (An easy trick: weigh yourself first, then stand on the scale and have your partner hand you the luggage, take that weight and subtract your weight and you'll know exactly what your luggage weighs). Make sure your luggage has locks on it, is clearly marked with your contact information, has a bright colored identifier that separates your black luggage from all of the others, and also include a copy of your itinerary inside the front pocket- so if your luggage gets in the wrong hands or gets lost on the way over, they will know where your travels were taking you. 

Before you start packing, check the weather of your destination to make sure it's keeping up with its normal averages for that time of year. You never know when fluke weather will roll through, so it's better to do your research first. When it comes to packing, it's best to separate and protect things as much as possible. If you're running low on space, plastic air tight bags that can be found at retailers like REI make it easy to fit more in your luggage. You simply fill the bags with clothing, zip it shut, and compress all the air out, making your clothing lay flatter to give you more room in the suitcase. It's also best to use Ziploc bags to separate other items in your luggage, especially toiletries. Remember that if you're going to the airport, all of your liquids in your carry-on must be in a Ziploc bag and under 3 oz. each. 

Below is also a packing list from yours truly. As I have traveled around the country and abroad, I have continued to add things to the list. You may not need them all or you may need more, but this list is a great starting point. Remember, don't pack too much, you will need to save some room for souvenirs and some shopping items!

-Money belt (to hold all of your important documents)
-Ear plugs
-Neck pillow
-Change of clothes
-Hand sanitizer
-Bug spray
-Wet wipes
-Converter plugs (if traveling out of the country)
-Small notebook and pen (to write down places you want to see or things you want to remember from the trip)

-Laundry bag
-Raingear- umbrella and jacket
-Bathing suit (if needed)
-Accessories (jewelry, bags, scarves, etc)

-Shampoo and conditioner
-Soap/body wash
-Face wash
-Razors and shaving cream
-Eye drops
-Hair ties and bobby pins

And be sure to pack an extra change of clothes and your medicine in your luggage just in case!

Look Your Best
For the ladies, you may want to get your nails done and get your hair cut or colored. Schedule all of these appointments either right before your wedding or between your wedding day and your honeymoon so you're ready to go. For the men, think about what grooming you can do to prepare for your lady as well, so that you can look your best on your romantic getaway. 

It's Okay To Save
We know you're supposed to spoil yourself on your honeymoon, but who says you can't be savvy while on vacation? Feel free to do your research on where the best hidden restaurants are in the area that offer local deals, and don't be afraid to even print some coupons. You know your new hubby will love the fact that you're already saving!

Find a Sitter
Whether it be a for a dog, a cat, your plants, your house or all of the above, it's important to schedule sitters so you know your belongings are in good hands. Having someone get your mail, water your plants, clean your pool, or cut your grass can help take any anxiety or stress off your travels. The last thing you want to worry about is something happening back at home. If nobody is going to be watching your house, set timers on your lights so that it appears as if someone is home at night. 

Prepare a communication plan especially if you are going out of the country and will not have cell phone service. Even though you and your new husband/wife are supposed to be off relaxing on your own, you know your loved ones will want to know you're safe. Be sure to tell them you will check in through email when you arrive or make a slight schedule of when they should expect to hear from you. It will leave them a little more at peace.

One last thing to consider, is waiting a day or two to leave for your honeymoon. While all of that planning will probably leave you wanting to get away as soon as possible, waiting the extra day will ensure that your mind is clear and you won't forget to pack anything important. You'll also get to take your time and say goodbye to your guests that came in from out of town to attend your wedding. No one likes to travel while being stressed, give yourself the extra day and traveling will be so much more enjoyable!

Most importantly, enjoy this relaxing break and your alone time together while you can, you deserve it!

Tell us about yourself: I live in Bucks County and am a graduate of Neshaminy High School in 2002. I married my high school sweetheart, Ryan, in 2008 and we recently moved into our first house! And it is quite a full house! We are parents to the two prettiest girls on the planet, Olivia, 6 and Elliot, 2 and we have a pit bull mix named Blanca, who we rescued from a shelter in Philadelphia.

Where do you live?: Levittown, PA

Give us three words that best describe your personality: Overly-organized, Friendly and Loyal

How did you get involved in the event industry?: I hired Erin as my own wedding coordinator in 2008 and shortly after, applied for a job with her. I am extremely detail oriented/Type A personality and realized my dream of being in the wedding industry while planning my wedding!

What's your favorite part of a couple's wedding day?: I actually have two favorite parts. The first is when the bride is getting ready to walk down the aisle. The excitement and nervousness that the bride has leading up to the ceremony magically disappears as she gets sent down the aisle, usually resulting in me crying, secretly of course :) The other is most definitely when the bride and groom are introduced at the reception. Seeing all of the love in the room and how excited they are to be married (and their family and friends clapping and cheering for them) makes me tear up a little. I'm a sap.

When you're not doing events, what do you do?: I'm the marketing and event manager for Proud to Plan and act as Erin's right hand (wo)man. I handle our blog, Facebook, Twitter and attend various networking events on behalf of Proud to Plan.

Do you have any hobbies? Or what do you do for fun?: When I'm not working or chasing two kids, you'll find me in my living room doing crafts while watching reality tv. I love love love crafts, so once the girls are put to bed, I turn on my tv and craft the night away. It's my favorite way to spend my alone time!

Fun question, if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?:
Since I'm the pickiest eater ever, this isn't a hard question for me: baked mac and cheese. Of course homemade with bread crumbs on top. Delish!

Planning a Destination Wedding

Destination weddings are beautiful and exciting and they can provide a great escape for you and your guests. However, planning a wedding from afar has its own set of challenges and requires a great deal of organization, persistence and delegation. Here are some things you'll need to consider.

The Destination
While many people equate destination weddings with warm weather and sandy beaches, you don't have to limit your search to tropical locales. From snowy mountain tops and picturesque vineyards to the bright lights of Vegas or the deck of a cruise ship, there's no shortage of available backdrops for your wedding day. During your search, keep in mind your style and budget, the location's level of convenience and the time of year you hope to get married.

Budget and Expenses
The cost of destination weddings can vary tremendously, so it's important to create a budget and stick to it. Consider the size and formality of the event as well as travel and hotel costs. Added expenses may include additional meals or entertainment for your guests, transportation, or even lodging for your bridal party if you choose to pay for it. 

The Guest List
The size of your guest list will really depend on your personal preference and budget. Some couples prefer intimate affairs with immediate family and close friends while others opt for a larger celebration. Keep in mind that the attendance rate for out-of-town weddings is typically 70%, but this estimate drops to 50% if your guests are travelling out of the country. Do your best to plan a trip that is convenient to the guests who are most important to you, but be aware that not everyone will be able to attend. 

Travel and Accomodation
It's important to find the most affordable travel and hotel rates available for you and your guests. Do some research or enlist the help of a planner or travel agent. Some airlines offer group discounts for ten or more passengers travelling to the same destination even if they're not all departing from the same place. Be sure to set up room blocks for your guests and see what transportation options are available. 

Extra Touches and Activities
Your guests will be spending a lot of time, energy and money to attend your destination wedding, so be sure to treat them well. Out of Town Bags are a great way to show your appreciation. It's also a good idea to treat your guests to a Welcome Dinner and Day-After Brunch. If budget and time allows, consider organizing a group excursion. If that's not possible, provide suggestions for activities that your guests can do on their own. 

Important Information
Getting information out to your guests early is crucial. They'll need time to save money, put in for vacation days, make travel arrangements or even get a passport if your destination requires it. Send Save the Dates as early as possible so guests can start planning. Provide information packets or set up a Website so they can find everything they need in one convenient place. Be clear on what you will be providing and what they are expected to pay for. 

Long Distance Planning and Assistance
When your wedding site is on the other end of the country or even the globe, you wont' have the luxury of stopping by at any time to make decisions and arrangements. Ideally, you'll be able to visit once in the early stages of planning to scout out key venues, select hotels and meet some of the professionals who will be part of your wedding day. However, this may not be possible for everyone, and even if it is, it's a good idea to invest in some assistance. Hiring a wedding planner who is local to your destination or has destination wedding experience is a really wise decision. Planners are great resources for vendor recommendations and can help you navigate any language or cultural barriers you may run into. They can find solutions for problems that may arise like weather issues or travel delays. Good wedding planners can make the whole process easier, faster and cheaper and provide you with a high level of comfort during an otherwise stressful time. 

Planners aren't the only important part of your wedding day. A great team of vendors can make your wedding dreams come true, so choose carefully. Having your wedding away from home means that you can hire vendors at your destination or bring them with you. You may be less familiar with destination vendors, but they have the advantage of being familiar with your wedding location. Bringing your own vendors can give you more control over your options, but keep in mind that you will be responsible for their travel expenses. 

Transporting Key Items
Another challenge to consider is getting wedding items to and from you destination, especially if it's far enough away to require a plane ride. Let's start with the dress. When purchasing your dress, opt for styles that are relatively easy to carry and don't wrinkle constantly. Avoid checking your gown at all costs. Many airlines will store your dress in the First Class cabin for you. Call ahead to discuss your options. Today's weddings are big on DIY details, but as a destination bride, you'll need to be realistic about how much you'll be able to bring. You can opt to ship your items if your destination is in the U.S. or you can pack extra suitcases. There is always a risk of losing checked baggage, so keep absolutely essential items in a carry-on.

Though beautiful venues and thoughtful details are all important, at the end of the day, the goal of a wedding is to be married, so be sure to take all the necessary actions to make it legal. Some destinations have complex marriage requirements such as residency rules, medical tests, or document translations and certifications. Research the specifics for your destination and give yourself enough time to complete everything. If you run into issues, you can always choose to have a civil ceremony at home and a symbolic ceremony at your destination.

In general, destination weddings will require flexibility on your part. Some things will just be out of your hands and you need to be prepared for that. Arrive at your destination a few days early to go over last minute details and make any necessary adjustments and then just let go and enjoy the adventure.


Riding In Style

Though we all don't have the luxury of having a 110 year old horse drawn carriage accessible on our wedding day like Kate and Will, there are still many other modes of transportation that can help you and your guests arrive and leave your wedding in style, and almost anything goes!
First, A Few Things To Consider

Will You Ride In The Same Way You're Riding Out? - Are you and your soon to be partner riding with the entire bridal party or are you doing your own thing? Are you coming in on a party bus and leaving in a carriage? These are all things to consider. 

How Many Guests Need Transportation? - Of course there is you and your soon to be betrothed, your bridal party, and close family, but you should also consider out of town guests that may not have rental cars or a way to get to and from the wedding.

Stop Drinking and Driving - To avoid tragedy on your wedding night, it is important to consider wedding guests who may need a safe ride home at the end of the night. Even if they are local, you may want to consider what you can do to assure everyone gets home safely at the end of the night. 

Parking - Is there a designated space at the ceremony and reception site that can fit your mode of transportation? Is there enough parking for guests driving themselves? 

Book in Advance - It's never too early to start booking your transportation, but a good 4-6 months out should be a good choice when making your arrangements. If your wedding is scheduled for May or June, you may want to book even earlier, because many local high schools will be having their proms during those months, and limos and other transportation may be booked up.

Timing - Are you taking pictures at different locations between the ceremony and reception? How far away are the ceremony and reception sites if they are in different locations? Timing your transportation can be one of the hardest things to plan during the planning process. Of course, timing isn't always perfect, but it's important to figure out how much time you will need to give you and your guests to get from one place to another. And it's always important to consider construction, traffic, and the pure delay of dealing with so many people. If your wedding is in the city, you'll want to check if there are any marathons, parades or races planned for your wedding day. This can definitely influence roads being closed or traffic in certain parts of the city. When in doubt, double the time you think it will take to be safe and ease your anxiety on the wedding day. 

Style & Personality - It's important to consider the style of your wedding along with your personality when choosing your transportation. Consider the feel you are going for. For instance, limos might be best suited for a classic wedding, while a trolley might be perfect for a city wedding. Think about how your transportation will look with your dress, and style. 

Be Prepared - Always tell your driver to be there a half hour before he needs to be and equip them with a list of all of those guests or bridal party members that are supposed to be traveling aboard. Don't forget to give them copies of addresses, contact numbers and directions.

Now, On To Choosing Your Type of Transportation

Antique Car - Bring back the classic look with an antique car as your transportation. Perfect for traditional or vintage themed weddings.
Horse & Carriage - Feel just like the royal couple and rent a horse and carriage. This may only be able to hold just two, but you can arrange other transportation for your bridal party.
Fire Engine/Cop Car - Perfect if you're marrying a man of service.
Pedicab - Pedicabs are a great form of transportation if your wedding is taking place in the city or if your ceremony and reception locations are really close. They are a fun way to take a creative spin on your transportation and they make for great photos too.
Boat - Whether a paddle boat, kayak or motor boat, take your pick. This fun transportation is perfect for weddings on the beach or near water obviously and makes for a fun escape.
Limo - Obviously the most common form of transportation mainly because the whole wedding party can fit inside. They're making everything into limos these days so be sure to look around. 
Trolley - Trolleys are a great alternative to limos because they allow for a classic feel and can fit more people, so they're perfect for larger wedding parties.
Party Bus - If you have a long drive to the reception or a long drive home that night, party buses are a great way to keep the night going and your bridal party entertained. 
Hotel Shuttle - Don't forget that if you are using a hotel, they may have a hotel shuttle that they can provide for free or at minimal cost. Check with them to assure that your guests can get home safe at the end of the night.
Sports Car - Live in luxury by renting or borrowing a friend's sports car for the night to take the happy couple around. 
Golf Cart - Perfect for wedding at resorts or country clubs, golf carts can make it easier for the bridal party to get around. 
Bikes/Tandem Bike - If you're having a spring or summer wedding, bikes can make a great unique transportation option. Try a tandem bike for the couple and singles for the rest. It's an easy way to go green to!
Horseback - You may need to practice at first, but riding in and out on horseback gives you quite the entrance, never to be forgotten by your guests. 
Elephant - I'm not joking here! Though it may cost you a hefty penny, riding on an elephant could be a fun and unique way to ride in or away as a couple. It's also a perfect fit for Asian inspired or Middle Eastern weddings as this is often protocol in countries like India.
Helicopter - With the right budget and the right price, a helicopter could be a reality for your wedding day. 
Motorcycle - Ride off in style on the back of your new hubby's bike!
Once the transportation has been settled, you'll be able to ride off happily into the sunset as newlyweds!

Your Rehearsal Dinner and Morning After the Wedding Brunch

There are many events associated with a wedding beyond the ceremony and reception. The rehearsal dinner and morning after brunch are two examples of these events. Here are some details surrounding the planning of these events.

Rehearsal Dinner

What is a rehearsal dinner?
A rehearsal dinner is a meal that takes place after the wedding rehearsal. It takes place prior to the actual wedding, usually the night before. It's a a chance for the bride and groom to thank everyone involved in the wedding. It's also a nice time for the wedding party and families to get to know each other. 

What if you aren't have a ceremony rehearsal?
You can still have a rehearsal dinner to just meet and get together with family and friends before the wedding day.

Who hosts the rehearsal dinner?
Traditionally the groom's parents host the rehearsal dinner. However, if this is not the case, many couples include this in their wedding budget and host it themselves. 

Who is invited?
The guest list is really up to you. All people involved in the ceremony should be invited. This includes your immediate families, the wedding party: bridesmaids and groomsmen (and spouses/significant others), flower girls and ring bearers (and their parents), and anyone else participating in the ceremony (readers, officiant, etc). If your budget permits, some brides and grooms like to include all out of town guests.

What kind of invitation is sent?
Typically a written invitation is sent to guests about four weeks prior to the event. It does not have to be anything fancy, just something to inform guests of the rehearsal dinner. Never include the rehearsal invitation with the wedding invitation. These are two separate events!
Morning After the Wedding Brunch

What is a morning after brunch?
A morning after brunch, also referred to as a farewell brunch/post wedding brunch, is a great way for the newlyweds and guests to say goodbye and wind down the festivities from the previous day. 

Who hosts the morning after brunch?
Traditionally, the bride's parents host the morning after brunch. However, some couples like to host the brunch as a thank you to their parents and guests. 

Who is invited?
Traditionally, the immediate family and wedding parties are invited. Some may choose to only invite those staying at the hotel overnight or close family members/bridal party. However, everyone who was invited to the wedding can be invited to the brunch. Just be sure to be discreet when extending invitations if everyone is not invited.

What kind of invitation is sent?
A formal invitation is not needed for the morning after brunch. It depends on how formal or casual the brunch is going to be. Usually a note is included with the formal invitation if everyone is invited. Invitations can be spread by word of mouth or email if it is a casual brunch.

Where is the brunch held? 
It's up to you! Usually, the brunch is held near the location of the wedding or hotel that the guests are staying. Depending on the guest list, you can have the brunch at the host's home or a local restaurant.

A Thank You Note

Here is a recent thank you note that we received from a stationery client! Thanks to Jennifer Childress Photography for sending us these gorgeous images.


Just wanted to say everything arrived in great time and looked great! Our wedding day was wonderful and I really enjoyed how all of our stationery tied everything together! I heard lots of compliments at the reception about our beautiful invitations as well. Thank you!!!


Christina and John's Wedding

Christina and John were married on a gorgeous day in September at the Adventure Aquarium in New Jersey. For Christina and her bridesmaids, the day started off with hair and makeup done by The Little Touches and everyone looked fantastic! Their wonderful ceremony was held in front of the shark tank, which made for an awesome backdrop. We created their day of stationery, which included their programs, reserved signs and table number tents. We matched the stationery to their color scheme, which was black and purple with touches of damask. Eventricity also matched the color scheme perfectly with Christina's deep purple calla lilly bouquet. Guests danced the night away thanks to Magical Sight and Sound and even got to enjoy a photo booth provided by Go Festive! Christina and John chose to have a cupcake tower instead of a traditional wedding cake and Christina surprised John with an amazing groom's cake that looked just like an Xbox console and controller! They were both created by Philly Cake Art and were as delicious as they looked. A huge thanks to Artistic Imagery for the beautiful images below!

Congratulations Christina and John!
