If you’re currently planning your wedding or ever dreamed of planning your wedding, you’ve probably caught onto some major trends. Some that you loved, and… maybe others that are past their expiration date? We hear you! It’s time to bring some new traditions to the playing field! No matter what stage of the wedding planning process you’re in, consider freshening up your wedding planning checklist list.
Add these tips below to your wedding planning checklist to plan the day of your dreams in today’s modern world.
Whether you’re an eco-friendly bride or philanthropist at heart, consider adding “repurposing floral” to your wedding planning checklist.
A great way to do this ? Send your leftover floral to a local nursing home or hospital to bring beauty to a patient’s room. What a better way to give back to your community than offering a piece of the best day of your life to folks in need.
A unique service that Roots To Stems offers is a service called Flowers After Hours. A service dedicated to donating used florals to people in need. Contact us to learn more!
In the digital world we live in today, most of our information is consumed via phone or laptop. Translation? Many of your wedding details can be found online! So what’s the use of sending multiple paper invites?
We’ve noticed many couples opting to skip sending paper save-the-dates and instead sending digital save-the-dates to get the news out.
For most people, one paper copy of a date, time and location is just enough.
Who needs boring guest favors when there’s a new tradition of welcome gifts!
At the end of the evening, guests are often rushing to pick up their belongings, take their last sip of their cocktail and still make it in time to the exit doors to light their sparkler for sendoff. With so much happening in the final moments of your event, guests often forget about these thoughtful gift favors!
For instance, picture this! The concept of starting with a gift instead of ending with it. Que the welcome gift!
As your guests enter for your ceremony they are alert, excited and let’s face it, sober! This could be the perfect time to provide a cute keepsake. Consider a small bag with a water bottle and fan for an outdoor ceremony. Maybe add in an event itinerary that includes important times throughout the night. Or possibly combine your program and dinner menu for guests to get a glimpse of the delicious meal to come! Similarly, for a destination wedding, consider gifting a trendy welcome travel bag. Pack it with a map of the city and fun local goodies!
In conclusion and no matter how you wrap it, a wedding is an incredible gift of sharing your love. If that means sticking with timeless, classic traditions Roots To Stems will guide you down that path. If this means going a bit more modern and wondering down some newly carved roads, we’ve got a checklist for that, too!
