Wedding Industry Conference: Engage!16: Sea Island


Are you in the destination wedding industry or luxury wedding market?  Then it’s time to pack your bags because this December the Engage! Summit is hitting the road again and heading to beautiful Sea Island, Georgia.  We’re huge fans of this bi-annual event, we’ve watched it help grow our business, we’ve learned tons over of the years, and let’s be real, it’s pretty fun too!  It’s three days of mingling, learning from amazing speakers, experiencing some of the best new food trends, decor ideas and even gift concepts in weddings, and you’ll make great industry friends along the way.  If you’re scouting locations for your destination wedding clients, it’s a great bonus too that we get to stay at and check out the fabulous property The Cloister at Sea Island.  The event is just around the corner so if you haven’t signed up yet, you’re running out of chances.  And signing up is one business decision we promise you won’t regret!  Pack your bags and we hope to see you soon at the wedding industry summit, Engage!16: Sea Island.



Beautiful Destination Wedding Invitations (You Can Order Online!)


Today we’ve got a few fabulous destination wedding and wedding invitation ideas for you from our friends at Basic Invite. A swanky online wedding stationery company, Basic Invite has over 200 wedding invitation sets to choose from and we’ve handpicked a few of our faves to share with you!


If you’re looking for a cohesive look from start to finish, you’re in luck – you’ll find matching sets from save the dates to invitations, menus, programs and even thank you cards too. And within the 200 designs, you’ve got almost unlimited colors to choose from so each invite looks as unique as your wedding promises to!


But what do you need for your destination wedding? Certainly start with a save the date. It’s a great way to give your guests plenty of notice to book travel before the invitation goes out.

Then when it’s time to design your destination wedding invitation, you’ll want to make sure to include your wedding website information on a separate card (or drop the hint on the save the date) and allow your friends and family to find all the info (and travel info) they need online, to save yourself all those extra questions.


No matter where you wed, the web is a great place to start. And have no fear, at a site like Basic Invite, you have the luxury of ordering custom samples, so you can be sure your invitation selection is just as you want it. Touch the paper, double check the color, and fine-tune the wording and you’re good to go!

Protect Your Guests at Your Outdoor Weddings

It’s summer season and that means oodles of outdoor weddings are taking place.  But all that nature, sun, and clean air can also bring bugs, sunburns, and other elements.  So be prepared and offer your guests sunscreen and bug spray with a twist, a wedding twist that is!  With all the talk about Zika, it’s better to be safe than sorry, even on your big day and especially at a destination I do.
