A busy wedding season for San Antonio Wedding Planners.

San Antonio Wedding and Event Consultants

It’s been a while since we have actually had enough free time to blog. Wedding season kept San Antonio Wedding and Event Consultants super busy with multiple weddings most weekends. We were truly blessed to be a part of so many beautiful bride’s weddings this season, and cherish the memories from each. We feel like we are finally slowing down a bit, and that’s because we only have one wedding each weekend in July. Last night we had Sonya’s wedding at Kendall Plantation, and we will be back out at Kendall Plantation next weekend, for Lacy’s wedding. So still keeping busy every weekend, but feeling like we have a chance to breath. And BLOG! 

Before we go back and blog them individually, we thought we would share some highlights of a few of our favorite weddings from the past few months.

Here is a fantastic photo of our couple, Bailey and Andy, before their ceremony at Kendall Plantation, Boerne Texas. http://www.kendallplantation.com/

Over the past few months of busy wedding season, we have been a part of planning some amazing weddings at The Whitte, Lost Mission, The McNay, Kendall Plantation, ZaZa Gardens, Spanish Governor’s Palace, Tapatio Springs, and more.  We look forward to sharing more photos of the weddings at these fabulous San Antonio wedding venues. xoxo-Teresa

Escort Cards

One of the biggest benefits of  assigned seating, is that  you can  ensure you use every seat at the the table. If you don’t, you may have random left over seats at each table, meaning you will have to have extra tables. Extra tables mean extra costs in linens, centerpieces, and other items you may be renting for each table such as chargers and china. So how do you let your guest know where to sit? Escort Cards. These days brides and planners are putting as much thought into escort cards as the do their centerpieces. Here are some unique ideas.

I really like the idea of the vase escort cards because once they get to the tables they add even more loveliness.

And I totally love this one below!

IMPRESSION BRIDAL

Finally!!! I am so EXCITED there is a new Bridal Salon in San Antonio, and it’s JUST what we have been needing. No more having to take our brides to Austin and Dallas to find the specialty gown stores at reasonable prices. Yippeee!!! Today I visited our friend, Jennifer, a manager at the new  store, “IMPRESSION Bridal” , located at 602 N. W. Loop 410 STE. 107. I was beyond  impressed with the  boutique that opened quietly over Thanksgiving. I walked into an absolutely beautiful showroom full of gorgeous gowns , and then, she gave me the tour of secret rooms that have the most unbelievable couture dresses I have ever seen.

This dress is one you may first  look at and go “ihhhh, probably not”, but then as you look at it closer, with the amazing crystal detail and crystal cap sleeves and belt, its more like”ahhhhhh, yeah!!!”.

I love the 360 degree mirrors and beautiful chandelier. (Lol, but they make it hard to take a picture without being in it!)

IMPRESSION Bridal also carries beyond amazing  bridesmaid dresses and “special occasion” dresses.

For more information on the gowns and  dresses they carry :  www.impressionalbridalstore.com or call (210) 486-1818.

Taylor + Cameron

We did this wedding quite a while back. However, we never have blogged or posted it. This week we received a call from a new bride in Three Rivers, Texas who said she had been highly recommended by a past bride from there. I knew right away it was from Taylor, or her mom, Jaime. It got me to thinking about (and missing) these two lovely ladies. I have been thinking about them all day so I decided to blog Taylor’s wedding.

Taylor came to us with a guest list well over 1000. (Yes ONE THOUSAND). Jaime, her mom, wanted the wedding to be everything and anything Taylor ever wanted. It was going to be held in George West, Texas on the property of a good friend. Months of planning went into the details, of tents, caterers, florist, valets and vendors, that were all traveling from San Antonio to George West. By the time the wedding invitations were to be sent out, we were able to help them trim the guest list to 600. However, there were still so many details. How would we generate enough electricity for to ac in the tents, (we had extra electricity outlets installed on the property) and ice for cocktails for 600 required separate ice machines to be brought in from San Antonio. These are just a few examples of the many details that went into the planning. The challenges were fun, and the wedding day went off without a hitch.

What an amazing wedding! Love you Taylor, Cameron, and Jaime!

Melody Agee, Senior Wedding Consultant

I really feel like this picture of Melody is priceless. The look on her face captures what is so endearing about her. She truly LOVES her brides, and cares about her brides beyond imagination.

I love Melody beyond words, and so do her brides. You could call ANY of her past brides, and every single one of them, and their mothers,  would tell you they love her and to book Melody for your wedding planing assistance. She is I true gem, and any girl that has her for a planner is a lucky girl.

That being said, her 2012 is booking up FAST. Call her at (254) 652-9595 to see if your date is available.

Wedding Trends 2012- Men In Beige

One of my favorite trends for the new year. A neutral colored  suite. Unless it is a BLACK TIE wedding, I really like seeing the guys in something other than a black tuxedo. Lets face it. San Antonio and South Texas is HOT, almost every  “wedding month” out of the year. It just doesn’t make sense to see the guys, in outdoor wedding pictures, in a black tuxedo, in the middle of a heat wave. Trust me, the will agree.

Let’s face it, the  guys will look just as handsome in a suite that matches the style of the wedding, as they would in a full black tuxedo. Outdoor, or especially in the vintage wedding trend we are seeing a lot of right now, it almost is a must do.

Enough said? xoxo- Teresa
