I immediately asked him, well what time is the wedding scheduled for? He wasn't sure, so we headed to the wedding website of the couple and found out that it is scheduled for 2 pm. Do we continue to focus on the social stigma of semi-formal, after five, formal, white / black tie....OR for our events and the accompanying attire matter simply on what we like and want?
If we are focusing on what is 'correct' attire for the occasion, then tails on a tux at 2pm in the summertime would be ALL WRONG! For a daytime wedding, even though a wedding is a formal event and you should ALWAYS be in Sunday's best, you would be ok in wearing a tailored suit, light or dark colored, and the tails, cummerbund, bow tie isn't necessary.
However, there are daytime formal weddings, which would incorporate tails or other formal dress such as long bridesmaid dresses and a formal wedding gown.
For guests, what would you wear or what is acceptable attire to such an occasion? In order to determine the formality of the wedding or special event, the first place to start is to consider the invitation. If the invitation is on heavy card stock, with calligraphy, then you can expect at least a semi-formal affair. If you are receiving an invitation via Evite, then it screams casual.
Whatever you do, make sure that you research the formality and are prepared for the occasion. If you have questions about do's and dont's for attire you can reference this site.

First off, thank you to everyone who comes in and reads the blog! We look forward to the comments and making sure that our blogs get more interesting and informative on a daily basis. So, thank you to our readers.
Second, today we were contacted by our friends at Get Married and Get Married.com that they loved our post from yesterday about Resource Cafes and their feature on the show. How cool huh? Not to mention, we were asked to make a mutual partnership so that we can continuously share our stories with their readers and vice versa.
So, now of course we have to write more often and increase our variety!

So, for my DIY brides, here is a budget friendly alternative which will also save you some time and money from running around town all day! Granted, the vendors that are at these resource cafes are the best of the best and could be a bit on the higher priced end, the security of knowing that you will be WELL taken care of is priceless for a flawless wedding day.

Here is the crystal tree that was in Brides magazine. Doesn't it look gorgeous? Here are the instructions to make the crystal tree:
1. Ethereal Decor sells faux reproduction and real Manzanita trees which are the base for the crystal tree centerpiece. Choose your tree, faux or real, in your color that you want.
2. You can either purchase individual crystals or the already strung crystal beads and string the beads.
This is a wonderful project. Try it out and let me know how it turns out.
Until next time...
Well, there are many differences and benefits of hiring a professional. Specifically, that professional is an EXPERT in their field. For example, the team at ENVI Weddings & Special Events is the EXPERT in wedding and special event planning. We have had training and certification in all aspects of special events, both social and corporate. Therefore, we know what to do and how to avoid some major event mishaps. Secondly, if you choose not to use a professional, then your team of DIYs have to work during your special event. Your event should be a time where all of your friends, family, and yourself should be able to enjoy the festivities, not be on radar and man the ship to watch out for anything that may not run smoothly....that is why there are planners, coordinators, designers, florists, and photographers, to take that stress off of you and allow the pros to do what they do best!
Even though money may be tight is some areas, there are GREAT professionals who are budget friendly and can make your event blossom with the resources you have to work with. ENVI Weddings & Special Events specializes in providing solutions for the budget - friendly bride, the last minute party host, and the time conscious mom!
Until next time....
