Ashley + Nathan were married in the beautiful First Presbyterian Church in Edmonton in an early morning ceremony, I just love the old charm of older churches in Edmonton – we have a few. The ladies wore a beautiful blush gowns with florals from TwoBuds, and at the church we placed a few of the centerpieces as alter pieces – to double use the florals.

The reception was held at the Chateau Lacombe, in Edmonton, with a tea ceremony first as the guests enjoyed their cocktails. The reception was decorated with alternating tall floral centerpieces and candelabras, which added a visual interest and diversity to the room. The tables had beautiful ivory linens and champagne chair covers, with blush escort cards.

For entertainment during the evening, the groom and his groomsmen had prepared choreographed dances to Ashley’s favorite songs  – it was quite the show and so well done, bravo to the gentlemen!

EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER: Tip Tuesday Wedding Dresses

WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING || EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER

The first thing on many bride’s lists is shopping for their dream dress, and I can’t blame you it can be fun – but it can be stressful as well, so here are a few tips to keep in mind when bridal dress shopping.

1. Make appointments! The best way to enjoy your experience is to book appointments in advance, this will ensure you will have a fitting room and a dedicated employee to assist you. They generally help more than one at once, however, if you walk into a store they generally can’t help too much as they have booked appointments.

2. Don’t bring everyone. Trust me, not worth it. Have you seen “Say Yes to the Dress”? Of course you have! The bride brings her friends with good intentions and then it turns out they hate her style and talk her down out of her dress and then there’s bickering back and forth. That’s normal, limit it to three people. You don’t need more, take photos and send them after, plus if everyone in the bridal store brought 10 people there wouldn’t be any room to walk around.

3. It’s just a number. Yes, I’m talking about the size. You will go up in wedding dress sizes from your normal pant sizes generally 2-4 sizes, so be prepared. It’s an emotional time and the last thing you want to do is go up in size, 99.9% of brides go up in size, it’s just the way the dresses are made. Another thing about size is go with the recommended size, don’t order two sizes smaller, you’re sabotaging yourself. Dresses can be taken in, but not let out very much at all.

4. It takes 6-9 months to order. Generally only six months, but it could take more so be prepared to order early and wait.

5. Trust your bridal consultant! Does it look awful on the hanger and she’s suggesting it? Trust me, try it. They have seen that dress on so many brides and body shapes they know who it fits best. My own wedding dress I wouldn’t have tried on based on how it looked on the hanger. It was the perfect dress for me.

EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER: Tara + Scott

GREYSTONE GARDENS AND SNOW VALLEY WEDDING || EDMONTON WEDDING PLANNER

Ceremony Venue: Greystone Gardens|| Reception Venue: Snow Valley|| Wedding  Coordination: A Modern Proposal Event Planning || Photographer:BettiJane || Flowers: Fabloomosity || Rentals: River City + All West + Stage Coach Rentals || Cake: Art of Cake || Doughnuts: Moonshine Doughnuts

Tara and Scott were some of the funniest clients I have ever had, such an incredible couple with beautiful spirits and many stories from their times abroad, traveling for theater and Ukrainian dancing. They had just wanted a day with their friends and family that was happy, light hearted, and full of yummy food.

That doughnut wall. The many hours Scott and family put into making this remarkable piece was just one of many DIY projects that made this wedding complete.
