Eastern Market Shed 3 ~ Chelsea + Stefano 5/24/19

Chelsea and Stefano were referred to us by another YTB couple that hosted their wedding at Eastern Market also. They were concerned with the logistics of the day and having everything set-up the way they envisioned before guest arrival.





The Ladies got ready in a suite at The Greektown Casino Hotel. 



The First Look at Detroit Public Library.




We love that the couple included their dog!






Beautiful ceremony music by Nuclassica and they also put on an amazing upbeat show during cocktail hour with two pop violinists.


All smiles as Chelsea and her Dad make their way down the aisle.


This moment got the best of Stefano as he saw his bride-to-be coming towards him. Very sweet!


The backdrop was stunning and created by The Rustic Root ladies. 


You're The Bride had lots to do for set-up and worked with the catering team from Two Unique and Event Theory Rentals to make sure every detail was in place. We had candlelabras, votives, table numbers, placecards, charger plates, signs, favors, linens, chairs and more.





The cutest succulents served as favors and placecards.




The cake was made by the bride's Aunt and was transported from Canada!
We were very happy to see that it made it across the border without any delays.


The day was awesome and we were so happy to be part of your memories. Thank you for choosing us to coordinate your dream day!

Taking the Difficulty out of Picking Your Wedding Dress

Without a doubt, your wedding is going to be one of the biggest days of your life and in order to prepare for it, it’s necessary to take
every little detail into consideration. One of the biggest concerns that you might have is how to pick out your wedding dress. With
so many different styles, colours and silhouettes to choose from, it can be extremely daunting to even gather inspiration for what
your ideal wedding dress should look like.


So in this article, we’re going to take the difficulty out of picking a wedding dress by giving you a couple of helpful tips.




Where is your wedding going to be held?


Unless you’ve not reached this stage yet, it’s important to think about where your wedding is actually being held in order to
make the right wedding dress choice. This is something that can give you more comfort and isn’t necessarily related to the style.
For instance, if it’s rather cold outside and you’re having your ceremony outside, then you’ll want to choose a dress or at least
have some clothing that will help you stay warm. Winter wedding dresses are typically a little heavier and very lace-focused.
They’re a bit more comfortable and can often be even cosier and more comfortable than your regular wedding dress. Some
may even have faux-fur wraps to help you cover your shoulders when you’re not at the ceremony, helping you stay warm if the
weather is particularly chilly.


How much can you spend on your wedding dress?


No one has an infinite budget for their wedding dress so it’s important to keep an eye on how much you’re spending if you want
to get the perfect dress for your needs. Take a look at how much you can spend and speak to rental services to get a higher-quality
wedding dress for less. If you’re looking to have something custom made that you can keep, expect to pay a little bit more for the
privilege. Be realistic when it comes to spending money on your wedding dress and let your consultant or wedding planner know
how much you’re willing to spend if they’re in charge of helping you find the perfect wedding dress for your big day.


How much time can you realistically spend?


If you’re trying to pick a wedding dress last-minute then having something custom made is often out of the question unless the tailor
is willing to do a rush order or modify an existing dress to your needs. You should give at least six months before you actually need
the wedding dress so you have plenty of time to customise the entire dress to your needs. The longer you wait, the more choice
you’ll have and the more “last-minute” changes you can make should you want something changed on your dress. However, if you
don’t have much time then it’s best to check some stores that have ready-to-wear wedding dresses off the rack in various sizes.
If you really don’t have much time, then purchasing something premade is often the best (and in some cases only) choice. That’s
not exactly a bad thing either, as there are many excellent dresses that can be bought straight off the rack if you’re in a hurry.




What’s your body type like?


One of the biggest things that could help you choose the ideal wedding dress is understanding your body type so that you
can give that information to whoever is in charge of making or choosing your wedding dress. Getting the perfect wedding dress silhouette
is all about understanding your figure, the shape of your body and also picking the right dress to compliment your body. Be more conscious
about how you look in your wedding dress and allow your wedding planner or tailor to help you make a decision that is best for you. Of course,
you’re always welcome to try something new and interesting even if it doesn’t completely fit your figure, and there are plenty of unique wedding
trends that you can take advantage of to get a dress that truly fits your personality. Getting to know your body type can be quite confusing, so it’s
worth asking a friend or an expert to give you a hand.


Do you feel empowered when you put on your dress?


At the end of the day, the biggest determining factor for whether you should or shouldn’t pick a dress is down to how it makes you feel. A lot of people
think too much about what others think, what the norms are, what trends are hot and how they’ll be perceived by their guests at the wedding. However,
what’s really the most important is how you personally feel when you put on your dress. After all, it’s your wedding and you’re allowed to really do whatever
you want in order to make yourself feel empowered and in control.


When you put on the perfect wedding dress, it’ll click like a puzzle piece and you’ll know that it’s the one. Don’t pressure yourself to make a purchase because
there’s a discount or because you “might” look great in it once you lose a couple of pounds. A dress that truly makes you feel special is worth more than any
other consideration as long as it’s practical. If you’ve yet to get that fuzzy feeling when you look at yourself put on a wedding dress, then keep looking until you’ve
found one that really speaks to you and makes you feel happy, empowered and absolutely flawless.

While picking a wedding dress can be incredibly daunting and even challenging, it’s important to remember that a lot of it does come down to personal taste and
what you like to wear. There isn’t really a “wrong” choice when it comes to picking a wedding dress and as long as your budget allows for it, you’re free to pick
whatever you want! In short, follow your personal tastes and styles that you really love and start from there. It’s your wedding, after all, so don’t let anyone tell you
differently!

7 Mistakes Couples Makes That Can Ruin Their Wedding Budget



Most couples dream about having an extravagant wedding to celebrate the occasion. One of the most difficult
aspects of planning a wedding though is creating a budget. Every decision you make from the venue you choose
to the guest list count and chosen vendors are all affected by how much you’ve allocated.


But even with a budget it’s surprisingly easy to end up spending more than expected. Continue reading to learn
about the most common budgeting mistakes couples make and what to do instead.

Creating Estimates Without Researching

A common piece of advice is to create a spreadsheet with estimates for each aspect of the wedding. Doing so helps
to give you a better idea of estimated costs. But creating estimates without any research to support those figures could
lead you to underestimate the actual costs. Instead, reach out to multiple venues and vendors to come up with more realistic figures.

Not Finalizing the Guest List

The final guest list count has a huge impact on your wedding budget. The average cost per guest is $258 according to a survey from
The Knot. Even if you want to invite everyone you know, it may not be financially feasible to do so. Make sure to finalize your guest
list by setting a deadline for invites and don’t be afraid to limit plus ones. Accommodating any last minute requests will have you
exceeding your budget.

Not Allowing Some Breathing Room

Even if you finalize costs with vendors, there will likely be unexpected costs. Some examples may include vendor transportation
costs or paying for additional prints of your photos. Set aside at least 5% of your budget for miscellaneous costs. And if you don’t
use the allocated amount, you can always put it towards your honeymoon fund. Be sure to ask suppliers up front about any additional
costs and read the fine print of your contract before signing.


Making Impulse Decisions

It happens to all of us – You see something that you just have to have so you immediately buy it right then and there without hesitation.
But later it might turn out that you actually didn’t need it or you could have found a more cost effective alternative. Before buying anything
for the wedding, take a moment to consider whether it’s actually a meaningful purchase and decide with your partner.

Not Tracking Expenses

There are so many things to pay for that it can be difficult to keep up with everything. But you definitely want to get into the habit of tracking
all expenses related to the wedding. Download the spreadsheet onto your phone or keep a detailed notebook on you at all times to make it
easier to track how much you’re spending.


Booking Multiple Vendors

Vendors typically have their own individual costs which also cover their services and travel expenses. These costs can add up with the more vendors
you book. Instead, try to limit the number of vendors involved. Be sure to also ask the venue about any additional services that are offered and the
costs for each. Streamlining vendors ultimately saves you time and money.

Not Prioritising

Prioritizing items on a budget is important so you can allocate more money and effort on the things that matter to you. Many couples simply work through
their checklist of items and make purchases without a particular order. Instead, sit down with your partner and create a short list of priorities together.
That way you’ll be in a better position to make key decisions which vendors to prioritize and which ones you can cut out.


Wedding budgets can be rather stressful but taking the time to research your options and staying organized will make things much more manageable.
If the wedding is still many years from now, consider opening a high interest rate savings account. You can use the funds you earn from interest to pay
for portions of your wedding.
