On Friday night I had the joy of watching Tracy and Travis get married at Stonebrooke Golf Course in Shakopee. They were such a great couple and it was obvious their feelings for each other. This was a fun and colorful wedding. Professional pictures still to come. Congratulations Tracy and Travis!
I had posted some pictures of Kelley and Scotts Wedding in my winter wedding section of the blog. However those were snapped with my camera. I just got the images from Glen Stubbe and I was REALLY Impressed and wanted to post them.. this was a great wedding! Check out Glen’s website at: http://www.glenstubbephotography.com/
One of the reasons that couples are finding the need for a wedding planner is that we do this for a career and we are good at thinking of ideas! One of the services I offer my couples is a “List” that I have compiled over the years that points out some fun ideas to really customize your day!
Here are a few:
o Table Numbers- Do something more creative than just using a number. Some great ideas are using photos of places where you have traveled, names of your favorite restaurants, favorite movies, places you have went on dates, etc.
o Place Trivia cards or questions about the couple at each place setting that way when the guests are waiting to get their meal they can learn some fun facts.
o Consider using your favors as escort cards; use your favors as centerpieces also. Consider doing potted plants and tie a little note to the plan explaining that guests are welcome to take it home when they leave.
o Send off snacks are a fun way to leave your guests with reminder of your special day. If you are not doing favors this a great alternative. Treat your guests to popcorn, cones of French fries, ice cream, donuts, warm chocolate chip cookies, etc.
o If your venue offers valet considering asking your valets to place favors in your guests dashboards when they retrieve their cars.

I was lucky enough to do 3 Winter Weddings this past season. Winter is typically the “slow months” for weddings, however I love how so many people are embracing the cold winter months. There are so many cute decorations that can be used and a lot of great themes to work with! The first one was December 1st, the first snow storm of the day. Despite the weather Katy and Jim’s Wedding was great. Most of the relatives were from up north, so a little snow would not stop them!
Our next wedding was December 28th. Beth and Kevin were a joy to work with and it was fun to be apart of this “Christmas” themed wedding! With everything from hot apple cider, Christmas Trees, Ornaments, and plenty of Christmas Treats!
A few weeks ago I ventured up north to Bluefin Bay with Kelley and Scott. This was a fun filled wedding weekend where guests could enjoy all that Minnesota and winter had to offer. Guests skied, went ice skating, used the outdoor pool and hot tub, and relaxed in this wonderful resort!
There is something about a little blue box with the name Tiffany’s printed on it that just makes a girls heart go pitter-patter, or least it does to mine! So needless to say there is nothing better than being proposed too and seeing that box. Tiffany’s has just added the neatest new product to their collection. The “Marry Me” charm bracelet.
Men…. what better way to propose to the girl who loves Tiffany’s? I loved this idea and I am sure that tons of girls out there love it too!
If anyone is looking for a great place to get married that is a “mini-destination” simply go up north!
