A Brunch Wedding will be fabulous!
1. Everyone loves mimosas - and it makes your champagne last a bit longer.
2. You can serve more variety in your food, because you have both breakfast and lunch to pull from. Continue reading Getting Excited About Brunch

We had a engagement/ joint birthday party last night, with a stellar group of friends. It happened to be the first really warm day of spring, which was it’s own present, and it was a tremendously joyous evening. Yay!
Once a week (at least while we were picking our venue, tough on a limited budget) one of us would say, oh hell, lets just elope. But then we found out even elopement isn’t what it used to be! Now people sell “elopement packages.” They offer you a lovely venue to say your vows, a photographer, and dinner for your closest family and friends. You bring the dress and the flowers.
You tell me what’s wrong with this picture.
On the plus side, I’m sure $10,000 or so is considered a decent budget for today’s more modest elopement.

I recently read the excellent advice that people get wrapped up in the details of their wedding, but the details that make a wedding are the ones that reflect something about the couples personalities. You are not going to remember if the chair covers matched the bridesmaids dresses perfectly or what the elaborate centerpieces looked like (though you probably will remember the ice sculpture, but maybe not for the right reasons). But you will remember the photo display the couple had of their grandparents weddings, the centerpieces made out of the their favorite books, or their quirky first dance song.
With that in mind, I saw the picture above, and immediately thought, oh how cool! They made the table runner out of butcher paper so that people could color on it! Um, of course they didn’t. But I LOVE coloring on butcher paper at restaurants (because I am secretly four years old), so of course I thought that. And now I think it’s a cool idea.
