A little detail that is often forgotten when planning a wedding is what to include on your wedding registry. There are a million other details to consider like your dress, what you’ll be serving at dinner, whether you want live music or a DJ…so your registry is often overlooked! Dallas wedding planner Divine Wedding Details has some great tips for what you should be including on your registry.

After your wedding, you and your loved one will be starting your new life together. All of those months spent thinking about wedding color schemes and bouquets will disappear. You’ll finally be living your normal life together as newly-weds. So this means you’ll be doing normal things again…like cooking and cleaning. Instead of deciding what your guests will be eating at your wedding, the two of you will be deciding what to cook up for dinner!

With cooking and cleaning comes lots and lots of supplies. So your registry should consist of things like a blender, coffee maker, dish sets, toaster ovens, etc. In addition, consider things like vacuums, dish towels, brooms, and more. Just think about all of those kitchen tools and cleaning supplies you use on a daily basis. This is a time to start fresh and buy the things that the two of you need to live a normal life together.

This Dallas wedding planner also reminds her couples that it certainly isn’t wrong to add a few special items to your registry! Have you been eyeing that beautiful duvet from Pottery Barn that would look perfect in your new master bedroom? Or what about that ceramic dish-set from Anthropologie? Don’t feel guilty adding a few special items like that to your registry! Your guests want you both to feel extra special on your wedding day and every day after that. Friends and family members are often more than happy to buy you those extra special items on your list. Lisa, an experienced and very knowledgable Dallas wedding planner, has all the answers to your questions about your wedding registry.

Fall Wedding Tips

A fall wedding sounds so dreamy – the temperatures are cooling down, the city is filled with warm tones, and the smell of pumpkin is constantly in the air. DFW wedding planner Divine Wedding Details has the best tips for making your fall wedding extra special.

For a fall wedding in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Lisa suggests picking a date in late October or early November. The cool temperatures during these few weeks of the year are perfect for a wedding. Also, if you schedule your wedding for the first few weeks of November, you’ll avoid big holiday weekends like Thanksgiving, which could be tricky to work around. In the DFW area, leaves don’t begin to fall until December. So October and November would be the perfect time to experience the orange and red foliage before the trees go bare in the winter.

Another great aspect of a fall wedding are seasonally-inspired elements that you can include in your decor. For example, the beautiful warm shades of fall foliage can provide you with an ideal color scheme! Lisa suggests shades like olive green, burnt orange, and deep burgundy, just to name a few. This DFW wedding planner is an expert when it comes to fall wedding decor.

Additionally, something that Lisa reminds her couples to be aware of is having an outdoor wedding. With fall comes the end of Daylight Savings Time. If you’re looking to have an outdoor ceremony, make sure you consider what time the sun sets. At the beginning of November, the sun sets around 5:30pm in the Dallas area. Just be mindful of this – it could also be a great advantage. If you choose to hold your ceremony around 5pm, your backdrop could be a beautiful sunset! An outdoor ceremony could also mean cooler temperatures, especially when the sun is setting. Something Lisa suggests is offering blankets or heaters for guests. Details like these could add an extra cozy feel to your fall wedding! If you’re ready to pick a date for a fall wedding, look no further. This DFW wedding planner has endless amounts of expert advice for your autumn-themed wedding.

Brides, grooms, and wedding planners have become more and more creative. Traditional wedding details are becoming more modern, and couples aren’t afraid to stand out! Something that Divine Wedding Details, the best Dallas wedding planner, has noticed are new trends in wedding altars. Brides and grooms push aside more traditional altars for something more exciting and creative!

A trend seen quite frequently are arches framed in foliage. These arches or frames come in all sorts of shapes. We’ve seen the traditional arch shape, a more modern rectangle, geometric shapes, or even full circles! Some are wooden, giving them a more rustic feel. Others come in various metallic materials like gold or copper, adding a sleek, modern touch. Still others take a step even further, using transparent materials to give the effect of floating foliage!

What makes these custom arches so special is that the materials and the foliage chosen allows the couple to add that unique touch to their day. They can frame the arch in whatever flowers they choose. For a more rustic feel, couples often choose wooden frames with dried grasses and warm pastels, for example. In contrast, eucalyptus and white flowers paired with golden, geometric frames is the way to go for a modern look. The best Dallas wedding planner, Divine Wedding Details, will find the right altar for your style!

Additionally, a few other elements that can add a special touch to your altar are draped fabric and vintage rugs. Finding a beautiful fabric that pairs perfectly with the colors of your wedding adds an elegant touch to any altar. Vintage rugs are also a perfect accessory to add a somewhat bohemian, relaxed feel to the altar space. These two elements could add just what you’re looking for to spice up your altar.

The altar is a special space for the happy couple on their wedding day, so it should represent them and their style! To define what that style may be for you and your loved one, look to the best Dallas wedding planner for a little advice.

There are a few important things to consider when you’re on the hunt for your perfect venue. When are you wanting to get married? Does your venue need to have a nice outdoor space for a spring or fall wedding? Or do you prefer an indoor space to avoid hot summer temperatures? In addition, another important factor to consider is the number of guests you plan to have. You both may have a long list of friends and family members that you want at the ceremony and reception. If that’s the case, then the amount of space the venue offers is something your planners will need to think about.

Furthermore, you may need to consider the distance from a specific point in the DFW area. How far do you expect your guests to drive to the venue? Are there plenty of hotels nearby?

Bouquet Trends

Dallas wedding trends are constantly changing with the times. Fortunately, your favorite Dallas wedding planner is always up to date on these trends and ensure that they keep their clients updated, as well. A very important detail on your wedding day is the bouquet! Flowers play such an important part in a wedding. Without them, your day would be much less lively and colorful. So it’s important to be aware of the trends so you can look back on your special day and be proud of the decisions you made for each of the details.

  • We’re only halfway through 2019 and we’ve already witnessed some extremely unique bouquet trends popping up. There are quite a few that have caught our eye. One is the single-stem trend. Recently, we’ve seen brides choosing one large, statement flower on its own or paired with subtle greenery as an alternative to the classic bouquet.
  • Another trend we’ve recently noticed as warmer weather is arriving is the use of tropical leaves. Tropical leaves are often quite large and a beautiful shade of deep green. These qualities make them just as eye-catching as bright flowers. With the breezy temperatures we’ve had here lately, these tropical leaves would make for the perfect Dallas wedding trend.
  • Another lovely trend we’ve seen are bouquets with dried flowers and grasses. This type of bouquet would be a great choice for a rustic or bohemian-style wedding.
  • Another style that has caught our eye is monochromatic bouquets. Florists have combined various types of flowers but maintained a single color scheme. For example, they’ll combine white roses, baby’s breath, white carnations, etc. to maintain one color for the whole bouquet. The variety of flowers maintains that eye-catching quality that is worthy of a walk down the aisle.

The options listed above are just a few of the many Dallas wedding trends we’ve seen recently! Planners and florists are getting more and more creative with floral bouquets, making those little details in your wedding day even more special.

Self Care for the Stressed Bride – DFW Planner

DFW Planner

Wedding planning can be stressful. As a DFW planner, we know. You want everything to be perfect, look perfect, and go perfectly. This is a big task for anyone to take on and can lead to some serious stress levels. It is so important to take care of yourself during this time so that you don’t get weighed down and frustrated. We have taken our time to line up some ways to take the stress off of you.

  • Be sure to workout! Being able to take your frustration out on weights and gym machines will feel amazing, and you’ll feel the stress shed off. Plus, you’ll get a great night’s sleep after a good workout.
  • Which leads us to, get plenty of sleep! You might catch yourself staying up until 2 or 3 in the morning stressing about wedding planning and going through websites for wedding tips, but that’s not good for your body. Be sure to get rest at night and even if you need to take naps during the day. It will help to reduce stress by a lot.
  • Don’t constantly be thinking about planning your wedding either! Make sure to give yourself a couple of days a week that are “no planning” days. Anything in excess isn’t good for you, and that includes stressing yourself out over planning.
  • Don’t be afraid to delegate, either! Plenty of people will offer to help you or ask what you need help with. Tell them! Let them help you even though you may not want to admit that you need help. It will take a lot of stress off of you knowing that you won’t have to worry about something small.
  • Lastly, Parks and Rec said it best: treat yo’self. Go get a mani/pedi, a massage, or have a spa day and spend a whole day just relaxing instead of being in the nitty gritty of wedding planning.

Wedding Cake Trends We Love

Dallas Wedding Planning

The wedding cake is a big deal. We know that, you know that, everyone knows that. That’s why when it comes to Dallas wedding planning, we are always on the lookout for new and exciting cake trends! Every couple deserves to have the perfect wedding cake for them (even if the perfect one isn’t cake at all). It is one of the centerpieces of the reception and something that everyone will want to see, so it should reflect you and your style. Here are some fun trends that we have been seeing.

  • One trend that we have seen a lot is one-tiered wedding cakes. One tier does not mean that it has to be a boring cake, though. You can still have all of the frills, textures, and flowers, just on a minimal scale. This trend is great for the minimalist couple. So that your guests can all still get cake, you can even have sheet cake for everyone to eat.
  • Another unique trend that we have seen over the years is adding bright pops of color onto the cake rather than all white or limited pastels. On top of the bright colors, we have seen tile patterns added onto cakes using those color pops. This tiling is a great way to add your own personality into your wedding cake while still having an overall traditional cake.
  • We have also seen edible flowers added onto cakes. Whether on top of tiers or pressed into the icing on the side, this is a beautiful trend that is sure to stick.
  • Lastly, having a cake that is not cake has been becoming more and more popular. Couples are opting for donuts, cupcakes, stacks of cheese wheels, pies, and so many more. You don’t have to feel the pressure to have a traditional cake on your wedding day.
