1. Fit Your Menu to Your City

Don’t be fooled into thinking that because it’s a wedding your choices are limited to steak and/or chicken. Try a menu that’s a little unorthodox but fits either your city, your wedding season or both! If you’re having a wedding in Philadelphia in the Spring, why not try a build-your-own cheesesteak bar? Live in Southern California, try a selection of delicious Mexican food. If you live in neither of those places but like those foods, go for it! There are a million handbooks telling you how to plan A wedding but none saying how to plan your wedding so open your mind to ideas out of the ordinary.

2. Have a Signature Drink

Note before reading on that this does not have to be a cocktail. Although most signature drinks tend to be alcoholic, that doesn’t have to be the case. If someone you know brews some great birch beer or kombucha, those are also great options. The allure of a signature drink is similar to that of a unique menu; it sets your wedding apart.

3. Have a Bar

It seems obvious that any wedding will have a bar, (hopefully an open one) but try a different kind of bar. A candy bar, an ice cream sundae bar, a dessert bar with to go boxes or bags. These can not only be fun for adults and kids alike but can be used in lieu of a large wedding cake. Many couples who choose an alternative dessert option still have a small and usually much less expensive “cutting cake.” Have your cake and eat everything else too! It’s a win-win and you can put that extra money toward your honeymoon!

4. Food as a Favor

If your vendor or venue allows it, (most will) consider some personalized cookies to take home, or even a cupcake in a small box. Sometimes people aren’t always in the mood for cake after eating a large dinner so it’s a great way to save money and not way a large and pricey cake. Not only are both of these options beautiful but they are a delicious way to send your guests home with a treat.

How can we honor their life and cherish them closely forever?
How can we remember forever?

Let's talk about peonies, ranunculus & garden roses!  

This one is directed towards all the amazing "brides to be" out there! Those ladies who are all searching for the elusive peony while keeping their budget in check! Yet,  they might be  over looking other gorgeous flowers (the flowers that don't get the "spotlight").

So, let's talk about three similar, very beautiful flowers, each different and unique in their own way!

 $ There is the understated garden rose, it is budget friendly (more so than the other two) and is very detailed center! Unlike the traditional rose, the garden rose  is larger in size and has a ornate center that creates such movement within the bouquet it is a real show stopper!  

$$ Then there is the tiny but powerful ranunculus! I have heard that some people have confused the ranunculus for a peony but it is far from a peony! The ranunculus is much smaller but still has an unbelievable amount of layers to it!  
   * Did you know that the buttercup is actually apart of the Ranunculus family?

$$$ Then there is the elusive, bold and beautiful peony. This flower originated overseas and was a prized and praised flower in countries like Japan and China. But, for all of those brides looking for a classically beautiful flower, this it. Due to the fact that it originated over seas, it makes it a bit pricier to purchase in the states! So, if this flower falls into your "MUST HAVE" list, save a little room in your budget for it!! 
     Freeze Dried or Pressed: Check & Check! These come out beautiful!! Probably our FAVORITE!! 

When it comes to shipping your petals and having your flowers turned into custom jewelry, there is NO wrong answer!  Whether you choose a garden rose, ranunculus or a peony, you will not be disappointed!

Good luck on your search for the perfect bouquet!!
