Welcome to Vermont and meet our bride Lauren and her groom Matthew! We absolutely loved working with Lauren in creating her stationery for her special day. Read on for some advice from an event planner turned bride and we’ll let the photos speak for themselves

What was your highlight of the day?

The entire day was the best ever. A million highlights strung together. But if we have to pick... We chose to not see each other until the ceremony, so laying our eyes on one another for the first time was a moment we will never forget. Another highlight was our first dance. We had a family member sing our song (Songbird, by Fleetwood Mac), and the whole room was mesmerized by her voice. It was pretty surreal. And one last one - one of my personal favorites - was when Matty gave a speech at our reception. My new husband had me doubled over laughing one minute, followed by tears streaming down my face the next.

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?

If you can, host a welcome party for all of your guests the night prior. This gave us an opportunity to truly talk with everyone for hours, so when it came time to party the next night, we could let loose and just have fun.

Have fun leading up to the wedding with your bride or groom to be. Those memories you share leading up to the big day will make it all the more special.

Most of all….Relax and have fun. Remember what it is all about - you, the love of your life, your family, your friends. And an epic dance party. The second you lose sight of that, the second you start wasting time thinking about things that don't matter. You will not remember what the flowers at Table 7 looked liked, but you will remember what your mom's face looked like when she put you in that gown.

What to include in your Wedding Program

pinit
What to include in your Wedding Program

Including a wedding program for your guests is a thoughtful detail that helps guests follow along with your ceremony, especially if there are traditions that may not be so familiar. Whether they are curious as to the name of your wedding song, or the name of your maid of honor, a wedding program will let your guests feel more engaged with the ceremony. It’s also a great way to extend your thanks to those who made this day possible and is a great keepsake for those guests who love weddings!

Not sure what to include in your program? No worries, we’ve listed here some suggested items you may want to include:

  • Choose a Wedding Program design to coordinate with your wedding stationery. Be sure to start the program with the Bride and Grooms Names (perhaps using a monogram from your invitations), wedding date and city, state (optional)
  • List the order of events of the ceremony. Remember to include the Officiates name, Musical selections song name/singer (you may also choose to include lyrics if meaningful to you), Readings and the names of those the readers. For example:

    - Processional – Wedding March by Wagner

    - The Officiate’s Greeting – Mike Smith, friend of bride and groom

    - Solo by Sara Knight – You light up my life

    - Exchanging of Vows & Ring Ceremony

    - Pronouncement of Marriage

    - Recessional Music – March Triumphant - Sassmannshausen

  • For those who have a religious wedding ceremony, it would be helpful to include a brief explanation of any traditions, rituals, and ethnic customs that will be occurring during the ceremony so that your guests will be able to be in the know.
  • A list of the members of your wedding entourage. This would include the Mothers and Fathers of the Bride and Groom, Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids, Best Man and Groomsmen, Ringer bearers and Flower girls.
  • Thank you note to parents, guests and any special intentions or memorials for those who are not able to be present.

Again, this is your day so feel free to go a step further and personalize your wedding ceremony programs a little more by adding a photo or special quote. If information gets to be too much for the front, we do offer backside printing our programs as well. The day of your ceremony, you may either place them at each guests seat or have a designated friend or family member be in charge of greeting and handing the programs to the guests. We recommend checking out our collection of wedding programs to get an idea of different layout options.

Beautiful Real Wedding incorprates tradition

Today’s Real Wedding features the union between Lauren Coalson and Chris Hardy in Atlanta, GA. We loved this wedding for all of the traditions & special touches the couple incorporated to truly make this day a part of them.

What was your highlight of the day?

The most special moment of our wedding day for both of us was the ceremony. Everyone always tells you how quickly the day will go by, so I wanted to be sure to really soak in and be completely present at the ceremony.

We incorporated the Celtic tradition of tying the knot into our vows, which was very meaningful and special. A stole was fastened around our embraced hands and as the sweet words were being read. I will remember that part vividly for the rest of my life.

What kinds of special touches did you choose to have on your special day?

Chris & I always joke that someday we will move out of the city & own a farm, so for the escort cards we had all different gold-painted farm animal figurines with the guests names tied around their necks written on kraft paper with peach yarn. We knew they were a big hit because they were all stolen by our guests.

In terms of the design of the room, the swinging benches filled with flowers hanging over the tables mixed with the ombre peach colored ribbon and café lights that went from the outer tables to the center of the dance floor, gave the room such a special and magical feel. I felt like I was underneath a carousel all evening. And candles covered every space possible. It was so lovely.

In the months leading up to the big day, I collected a variety of vintage china, so each guests at the estate table would have a different plate. They gave the table such a great, authentic Southern look. We had fried chicken, mac n’ cheese-the works. All served family style. It felt like you were having Sunday dinner with your family. I wish I had enough time to find plates for every guest!

I purchased a vintage suitcase & vintage postcards from Mexico to use as our guestbook. We asked guest to write down marriage advice to read on our honeymoon, which was so fun to read and something we will always treasure.

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?

It is a fun process, but with full time jobs, it was a lot to manage, so we wanted to give ourselves a year to plan. If you find yourself becoming overwhelmed, adopt “no wedding Wednesdays” or weekends where wedding planning is not allowed. Everyone needs a break every once in a while. We had our vision but no idea how to execute it, so if you have room in your budget, hire an event/floral designer and day of coordinator! That was our saving grace!

Thinking back, is there anything you would have liked to do differently?

It goes without saying that no wedding day goes off without a hitch. I stumbled down the staircase during our entrance and put out some of the candles with my dress-thankfully, it wasn’t a full on tumble. Moments like that turn out to be hilarious memories that you will always look back on and laugh about. That being said, I wouldn’t change a thing!
