July Couple of the Month

With another new month, comes another new Couple of the Month. This July, we look back to the days of last summer at Delilah and Javier's private estate summer wedding. Delilah and Javier opted for an outdoor, forest wedding ceremony followed by a beautiful, colorful, clear-tent reception. The clear tent allowed Delilah and Javier's family and friends to dine and dance under the stars with the added bonus of being protected from the weather! Their party guests were greeted at the reception tent by bohemian, vintage styled sitting areas adorned with couches, chairs, and rugs. Further into the tent, guests could dance the night away on the large, wooden dance floor or enjoy cigars at the "cigar bar!"

Delilah and Javier had this to say about their experience with the Bisou team:

When my husband and I began planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to rent a private estate for a wedding weekend. We quickly realized that we were in over our heads with planning and logistics and reached out to Bisou Weddings & Events to handle day of coordination. From the beginning, she partnered closely with our wedding designer to ensure a seamless transition for her and her staff to manage the day of. The day of flowed very smoothly, thanks in large part to Sarah’s amazing attention to detail. Whether it was helping to get our flower girls together for the ceremony, or making sure vendors had what they needed, Sarah and her team got it done. We were so glad we had Bisou on hand!

How-to: Incorporate Mirrors Into Your Wedding

A mirror wedding theme is not only elegant and easy to plan, but it will give your wedding venue a touch of luxury and whimsy. A mirror wedding theme will go with any color combination you want. You can also make it more vintage by using mirrors in vintage frames or take a more modern and fancy approach by using unframed square mirrors adorned with candles and a touch of bling!

June Couple of the Month

This June we are reminiscing over Nora and Joe's stunning Fall wedding. The bride and groom sparkled through the rain of the day. We loved Nora's elegant a-line dress with a lace bust and silky off-white skirt, with a ribbon accentuating her waist. She looked euphoric, sophisticated, and purely over-the-moon! Accents of yellow, orange, and plum accompanied the beautiful ceremony and reception. 

Nora and Joe had this to say about working with the Bisou team:

I am not sure where to begin. My husband and I went back and forth on whether or not we needed a wedding planner and I managed to win the debate. A colleague had recommended Sarah so I reached out and from the moment I spoke to her on the phone, I felt a sense of ease. I knew Sarah and her team were top notch just from our initial phone call.

Sarah and I met in person a few weeks before the wedding and she made me feel so comfortable - it felt like I was getting coffee with a friend. I shared our vision for the day with Sarah and left our meeting knowing she would help make it happen. Sarah was on top of reaching out to all of our vendors to create a timeline and plan for the weekend.

Sarah came to our rehearsal and in that moment, I put all trust into Sarah for the rest of the weekend. She knew our plans inside and out and was so friendly to our wedding party, family, and friends who were a part of the mass.

And then came the wedding....I wish I could sum into words the calmness I felt when Sarah arrived. It was pouring rain outside but she came in like a ray of sunshine. Sarah kept us on schedule and helped all of my bridesmaids off the bus with her umbrella so they did not get wet and made sure we were all smiling despite the sideways rain and high winds. While we were at the church, Sarah’s assistant Maria was at the venue making sure everything was setup properly and everything was exactly where we wanted it to be.

Sarah and Maria were there if any of us needed anything that night and I honestly feel like we had the best day ever because of them. By the end of the night, they felt like family. They went above and beyond in every detail and I plan on recommending them to anyone I know. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, I would highly suggest working with Sarah and her team....I promise you it is worth it.

The next day, Joe said that hiring Sarah was the best decision we made besides getting married so I think that says it all!

Backyard Wedding Inspiration

At Bisou, we love backyard bashes! Backyard weddings are super cozy and won’t break your budget. You can also make your nuptials any theme you desire, without limits of a venue. Consider a rustic, bohemian, or maybe vintage theme. Take all the best from your surroundings; mother nature, your garden, your home and backyard. In case the weather is bad, you can always come inside or order a beautiful wedding tent. Pick seasonal flavors and food, add some wooden slabs as a base to family style serving platters, and add chic rustic touches here and there to create a homey ambience. Check out this post for more inspiration to have a perfect backyard wedding!

1920's Inspiration

A wedding trend we love is the 1920s-inspired headbands for brides. 1920's fashions seem to symbolize a kind of romantic decadence directly in contrast to the financial depression going on during that time period. For the especially unique bride, this look is for you! Somehow this look compliments everyone, and adds that unexpected piece that your guests (and groom!) will always remember.

Romantic Floating Centerpieces

There is something hopelessly romantic about floating centerpieces at weddings. You can choose any type of glass containers - from tall, thin cylinders to low, wide bowls. Inside, you can add floating candles, flowers, pearls, or pebbles. These elegant arrangements are not only great as centerpieces, but also as accent decor (down the ceremony aisle for example). You can create a fresh and modern look with a long-stem rose, glass stones, and a floating candle, or a rustic and country look with grey rocks, moss, and wild flowers.

For my DIY brides out there, this one is for you! Incorporating floaters is also usually easier and less expensive then flower centerpieces. Take a look here for some inspiration!!

May Couple of the Month

This May we remember the summer of 2016 and look back at Megan and Brendan's beautiful and classic summer Otesaga Resort Hotel wedding. The bright and colorful Gerbera Daisies were the perfect pairing with the crisp and classic navy bridesmaids gowns.  Large white lanterns were set amongst a bed of greenery and Gerbera Daisies and adorned the window sills along the perimeter of the gorgeous ballroom, as well as the outside sitting area overlooking Lake Otsego. Wedding guests were invited outside to play yard games, such as cornhole, and to watch fireworks over the lake, and were not disappointed! Megan and Brendan's fun filled wedding bash went out with a bang! 

Megan and Brendan had this to say about their experience with Bisou Weddings and Events:

Looking into a wedding planner just made sense: my parents are snowbirds and my husband’s family had never planned a wedding. After doing some research, Bisou popped out for us and immediately became a no brainer. Sarah was completely professional from start to finish. Her timelines, calls, advice and connections to vendors were everything we needed and more! We were so pleased with her attention to detail and honoring our wishes. Our wedding day was completely flawless and we owe it to Sarah! I’m pretty sure she even made sure it didn’t rain during our photographs as well (she’s THAT good).

Modern Game of Thrones Inspired Wedding

Game of Thrones (GOT) themed wedding!? WHAT? You heard me, the hit HBO series that has captivated viewers worldwide can captivate your wedding guests! The GOT world is filled with passion and energy, who wouldn't want that at their wedding?! GOT is full of mythical, medieval inspiration that can be transformed into a modern, romantic wedding. Honor the queen of dragons by intertwining, loosely pulling, twisting, and layering different styled and sized braids into the bride and bridesmaid's hair. Consider adorning the bride's style with a headpiece, be it a crown or tiara, or a head chain. Add touches of dark green, royal gold, and dark crimson to your decor. How will you design your GOT-themed wedding?!
