Your First Dance Beneath… a Teepee?

by Azure

Kate Moss did it last summer and started a major trend overseas. Instead of traditional tents for outdoor weddings, more and more couples are decking out their receptions with teepees! Moss chose to have teepees to keep the kiddos entertained at her I Do's, but that's not to say that adults wouldn't enjoy a little teepee fun too! UK companies like PapaKata rent out Kåta tents (teepee style tents large enough for all your guests), but I have yet to see a US company renting out...

4 Tips for Having Lawn Games at Your Wedding

by Valley & Co.

We often encourage our couples to schedule out cocktail "hour" to about 90 minutes to give guests time to enjoy each others' company and the food and drinks offered, but also for our couples to have ample time...

The Antithesis of A Big Fat Gypsy Wedding

by Azure

I know I'm not the only one blown away by TLC's My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. I mean, I've had to hold myself back from doing deep-dive research to see if the crazy practices, traditions, and costumes are really real and representative of true Gypsy (aka Romany) culture. Because things like 15 and 16 year old brides, wedding dresses so heavy they make you bleed, and "grabbing" and bridal kidnappings... just seem soooo wrong. But I'll admit that the pure entertainment of it all keeps me...
