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).

Geode Wedding Cakes

Geode wedding cakes are made with the use of colourful sugar rocks to create intricate crystal formations inside. These wedding cakes are trendy and amazing! We love the geode theme (see previous blog post "Wedding Trend: Agates and Geode Accents"), a growing trend in the wedding industry. But for those couples who are intrigued in the geode theme but not attached to it, perhaps a geode cake would be a perfect compromise. Here are a few cake ideas for inspiration!

Outdoor Reception Tents

Tent weddings are no longer solely associated with a casual backyard bash. With a crop of different types and styles, it's never been easier to personalize them to your tastes. With a ton of customizable options like lighting, weather protection, and structure styles, these tents are the perfect way to bring all the comforts of the indoors straight to your outdoor wedding. 

A clear tent gives the impression of dining and dancing in a greenhouse. It is stunning during the day with its glass effect but even more beautiful at night- with the lights gleaming right through the tent. Consider adding chandeliers for a majestic, romantic feeling. Whereas, a sailcloth or teepee-inspired style could bring some boho flavor to your wedding day. Unique in its structure but perfect in its protection from the elements, this could be your cozy solution to a late summer wedding under the stars. Or perhaps box them in and create the feeling of enclosure and intimacy by creating a faux "tent" out of string lights. Now this is what dreams are made of.



Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

What are you supposed to do with your wedding dress post-wedding day? Saving it in the back of your closet for your daughter to possibly wear one day is one option, or donating it to brides in need is another one (if interested, visit BridesABC). There are many ways to reuse or recycle your wedding dress, and here are a few ideas:

1) Donate it to brides in need  

2) Turn it into something smaller and manageable, like a pillow

3) Use the fabric from the skirt to make a cute purse you can use more than once

4) Save a piece of your dress inside a glass ornament for Christmas


5) Create lingerie using the scraps
