Premier DFW Wedding Planning

Finding the perfect wedding dress can be stressful! It often seems like there are a million styles or cuts to choose from. Where do you begin? Thanks to the premier DFW wedding planning of Divine Wedding Details, finding your dream dress can be stress-free!

A great tip for choosing the perfect dress is doing a little research before you begin the dress hunt. Flip through magazines or explore Pinterest to see if there are any styles that immediately catch your eye. From there, you’ll be able to narrow down what you like, making the search a little easier. This will give you a sense of the style you’re looking for, how much embellishment you’d like, etc.

Next, take some time to find a great bridal store. With Divine Wedding Details’ premier DFW wedding planning, you’ll be given great suggestions from Lisa for finding the right dress shop for you. She’s also very knowledgeable about the best bridal boutiques around the DFW area, and she only suggests the best for her brides!

In addition, Lisa suggests being open to new ideas and styles once you begin the try-on process. Go in with an idea of the style you’d like, but if someone suggests something a little outside of your comfort zone, give it a try! You might be surprised by something you weren’t expecting.

Another important suggestion from Divine Wedding Details is choosing a good group of people to accompany you on your dress search. Choose a small group of people whose opinions matter to you and bring them along to your bridal appointment. Inviting a large group of people along with multiple opinions can be very overwhelming! Pick three to four friends and family members who will give you helpful, honest opinions.

Choosing the perfect dress is a huge part of your special day, so consider these helpful tips from a premier DFW wedding planning source. Lisa from Divine Wedding Details wants to make your dress hunt to be as memorable and stress-free as possible!

Picking the Best Venue

There are endless amounts of DFW wedding venues. How do you know which is the right one for you? One of the best tips for choosing a venue is hiring a planner who is knowledgeable about the area. Lisa and Brit of Divine Wedding Details are experts when it comes to DFW wedding venues. They have worked with many venues throughout the area. They know how to choose the proper location for what you’re looking for.

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?

Lisa and Brit have thought of each of these little details and more to ensure that they’re aware of the best locations for any of these factors. Thankfully, with their knowledge of DFW wedding venues and their years of experience, they’ll be able to find the perfect spot to cater to your needs.

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.

Choosing the Right Honeymoon Destination

Destination Wedding Planner

So you’re married! You got through all the planning, the stress, the big, beautiful day, and now its time for your honeymoon. If you’re still engaged and that sentence will apply to you in a few months, congratulations! As a destination wedding planner, we would love to help you decide where you will be spending your first trip as a married couple! Here are a few tips from the pros on how to choose your destination.

  • First up, set the budget. Don’t just set the budget, but be realistic and stick to it. Honeymooning at a private villa in Bali with room service every morning sounds great, but the bill might be a reach. When you stick to your budget, even in the searching process, you won’t end up disappointed if a more expensive option doesn’t work out since it won’t be on the table.
  • Make sure to think about weather. Maybe you’ve always wanted to go to Ireland, love mild temperatures, but really want a winter wedding? In this case, Ireland may not be the best choice. Be aware of what the weather will be like no matter where you are going. No one wants to wear a coat when they really want to be wearing shorts.
  • You will want to consider the vibe that you are wanting out of a honeymoon, as well. Are you both laid-back people? It might be better to have a slow, beach honeymoon that you will never have to worry about being somewhere for. If you like adventure, it might be better to have a honeymoon in a new place with sightseeing and lots of things to experience.

In the end, your honeymoon is your honeymoon and wherever you choose to go, you will have a great time with your new spouse. Have fun choosing a destination and imagining yourselves somewhere new together.

Unique Outdoor Summer Wedding Inspiration

]

DFW Wedding Planner

We love being a DFW wedding planner in the summertime. With summer comes all new wedding trends that just aren’t possible at any other point in the year. It is a unique season because you can use the outdoors as much as you would like to with such little worry. We have been scoping out all of the fun trends for summer weddings and wanted to share some of the unique ones that we are loving right now.

  • Are you having an outdoor reception? If the land you are on allows, having a bonfire to end the night would be the icing on top of the cake. It would be perfect for any wedding, but especially a more rustic-themed one. You can even have a s’mores station for your guests while you all continue to party and hang out.
  • Another fun addition to an outdoor reception are yard games! Get a giant Jenga set, corn hole, and Kan Jam for everyone to play with when they want a break from dancing. This will also keep any children occupied so that they’re not bored and wanting to go home before their parents are ready to leave.
  • Rather than heavy desserts, go for lighter, cooler fares. Rent a soft-serve ice cream machine or have berry popsicles! This will keep everyone cool in the Texas summer heat.
  • Maybe you’re a fan of specific patterns, like gingham, but don’t know how to incorporate that into your wedding without it feeling like a picnic? Have your bridesmaids wear gingham dresses in summery shades to match your color scheme. From there, you can even get gingham, or any other summery pattern, bowties to match the dresses. It will be a unique twist on the party’s attire.

Anthropologie Inspired Wedding Day

Best Dallas Planner

We all love Anthropologie, even the best Dallas planner, Divine Wedding Details, does! What would be better than a Anthropologie themed wedding? There are so many ways to add Anthropologie furniture and decor into your wedding to make you feel like you just stepped into a catalog.

  • The first way to include Anthropologie in your wedding is to find your dress and accessories in their wedding line, BHLDN. The dresses in this line are magical and incredibly well-priced for it to be a line from Anthropologie! Hop on over to the website to see all of the styles.
  • Another way to make your wedding be Anthropologie inspired is by using their furniture to create a lounge area at your reception! Look for furniture that can be reused in your house with your fiancé. A beautiful piece that we found for a lounge area is the Peacock Cabana Daybed. This might sound odd, but add some pillows and you’ve got the perfect lounge chair!
  • During the food portion of your reception, ditch waiters pouring wine straight from wine bottles, and instead stock up on a couple of the Elena Carafes. These are a small touch that will go a long way. It is in the small details that we see themes being executed the most.
  • If you are going to have a table with old family portraits of past weddings, look into these fun picture frames! They will give you the perfect vintage feel to your families’ old photographs.
  • Last but not least, decorate your aisles with some lanterns or vases from Anthropologie to set the mood. After the ceremony, you can reuse these decorations at your reception! Make them be on the floor throughout lounge areas or even be a part of the centerpieces at tables.
