Tips for Attending The Perfect Wedding Show Tulsa

Sept. 2013 image

1. Bring pre-printed labels. The label should include your Full name, address, wedding date and contact information. For the Perfect Wedding Show Tulsa, all you have to do is register online before the show and labels will be printed and ready for you.

2. Don’t come alone. Many vendors offer great bridal show discounts, so you want someone to help you with decision making.

3. Bring your calendar. Be prepared to schedule appointments with the vendors that you are interested in. Again, many vendors offer bridal show discounts, but they are only good for a limited amount of time.

4. Wear comfortable shoes. Be prepared to do a lot of standing and walking.

5. Try on a gown. At the Perfect Wedding Show Tulsa, we have a gown sale. This means there will be a portable bridal salon. You will be able to try on gowns and quite possibly find “the one”.

6. Have fun. Enjoy yourself, relax, have a good time, get great ideas, meet fabulous vendors, sample fantastic food and cake samples, and save on your wedding.

If Your Man Were to Plan: 5 Ways to Include Your Groom in Your Wedding Planning

When in the midst of planning your wedding, it’s easy to get caught up in the details of what you have always been dreaming of. And rightfully so, as you have been planning your dream “I Do” since you were 10-years-old. While the wedding day attention typically falls on the bride, we can’t forget about the groom. He’s getting married, too!

Most grooms are happy to leave the planning up to their better half. Flowers and table linens? They’re thinking, “Just let me know when it’s time for the cake tasting.” We get it, the frills of wedding planning leave men less than thrilled to participate. But, there are a couple areas that you can incorporate your man into and draw out a little wedding planning enthusiasm.

1. Tantalize his taste buds with some guy grub by requesting his input for passed hors d’oeuvre options for cocktail hour. Manly muches don’t have to scream bar food. Brainstorm basic, tasty foods he loves and then dress them up! He wants burgers? How about mini lamb and feta sliders with mint aioli?

2. Give him free rein over his day-of duds to allow his unique style to show through. Maybe he’s a suspenders kind of guy, or he’s known for his rebelliously colorful dress socks. Agree on one rule, he must stick to the color pallet, and then let him at it.

3. Help him get creative with groomsmen gifts by suggesting some customizable options. Engraved engine turned lighters with a mild bodied cigar, a can of coke paired with a Jack Daniels mini and monogramed whiskey glass, or cufflinks adorned with each guy’s favorite team logo – he’ll enjoy picking just the right gift for his friends to thank them for being a part of your special day.

4. Think outside of the icebox for décor options. How cool would a beer-filled canoe be? Maybe he can’t get excited about picking out centerpieces, but he loves outdoor activities. Enlist his help in finding cooler alternatives based on what he loves – wheelbarrows, tractors, an old boat or something he can build himself.

5. Hand over the gun – the wedding registry scanner gun that is. A planning-friendly way to keep the man of the hour happy is to let him pick out some items he’ll actually enjoy too. Maybe he’s had his eye on that George Forman grill, he needs a new tool chest, or he simply wants a new gadget. New bath towels are only exciting to a certain degree, so let him have a hand in choosing some registry items.

Enjoy the wedding planning process together by making him feel that his role extends beyond simply showing up on your wedding day. To create an event that reflects who you are as a couple, it’s important to incorporate his personal touches, too.

New Pantone Fall Colors

Dark Delights
PANTONE®’s recent announcement of the new IN colors for Fall has brides seeing deep jewel tones and richer shades that add a touch of warmth to their wedding color options.
 

 

Only one shade stays with us for both spring and fall: that would be PANTONE®’s color of the year, Emerald, a shimmering stunner in any season. Emerald also happens to be one of the most valuable and expensive gemstones, so in our financially-crunched world, perhaps brides see Emerald as a pop of color with a message of opulence, extravagance, royal inspiration, and celebrity style.

PANTONE®’s color expert suggests pairing Acai with Emerald for luxury and elegance, and Mykonos Blue (a name that befittingly evokes thoughts of the Greek islands) and Linden Green’s soft shade, and even suggests adding a dash of Emerald to that combination. And for brides who love pink, Vivacious’s ‘wildly deep fuchsia’ adds that jewel of a shade for what PANTONE® call’s ‘sensuality.’
