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!

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.

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).

Mason Jar Lights

The mason jar is a staple for rustic-themed weddings. With their distinct vintage style, versatile use, and affordable price, these little glass wonders are the perfect décor item for any rustic, barn, or country wedding. They can be used as centerpieces, to serve drinks, to serve dessert and other food, as decoration, as gift bags, and as lights! Consider either an old-fashioned Edison light bulb or twinkling fairy lights for your mason jars.

Winsome Wedding Signs you Need

One of the best ways to make your wedding especially unique and special is by adding handwritten or typographic signs around your ceremony and reception venues. This can be done in a variety of ways including chalk on any shaped chalkboard, or paint on a mirror-elegant, rustic, or modern! Writing a thank you note or welcome greeting on an elegant mirror is a super cute and personal way to thank your guests for sharing your special day with them. Whether it’s a quote that you love, your wedding #hashtag, some fun dance floor rules for your guests, or a fabulous welcome greeting, you can’t go wrong with adding these cute, personal signs to your wedding decor!

Go Big or Go Home

Every bride and groom wants their wedding to be the best, biggest bash of the season. So, how do you make YOUR wedding stand out? Go BIG or go home! A great way to transform ANY space is with a BIG piece! Take these floral-filled letters spelling out the word "love," for example! The floral letters can be moved from your ceremony location, to your reception, to your backyard when the day is done to be replanted over and over again! For my DIY brides out there... you can DIY these letters, or make your own, personalized word. Perhaps your last name, or your designated wedding hashtag. 

So, what wedding word would you build?!

To Buy Two Wedding Dresses, or Not?

What do you do when you have a "that's the one" wedding dress moment...with more than one dress? For an increasing number of brides, the answer is, buy them both! Anyone who has seen Say Yes to the Dress knows that the hottest trend for bridal fashion isn’t strapless or sleeves -- it’s both! The two wedding dress trend isn't going away anytime soon, and we can understand why.  Who wouldn't want the chance to wear multiple gorgeous, sparkly dresses in the same evening? More and more brides are buying two wedding dresses for the big day to change up their look from ceremony to reception, and Bisou bride, Allison, is no exception!

How-to: Entertain Children at Your Wedding

Jeana and Kevin had the right idea in mind at their Fort William Henry Wedding. How do you ensure the kids at your wedding (and their parents) are entertained and having a great time? Consider providing a kids table or individual baskets with games and activities to keep them busy. Some ideas include:

-Coloring books (wedding themed or not)
-Legos (building love "brick by brick")
-"Kids only" tent or area
-Board game table (for adults too!)
-Kid friendly snack station
-Hire a babysitter to make sure the kids are having fun and keeping out of trouble (this is especially smart if you’re going to have younger kids who might need help with games or activities)
