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!

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).

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?!

Incredible Outdoor Wedding Tent Reception

With a crop of different types and styles, it's never been easier to personalize your wedding tent to your taste and theme. With a ton of customizable options like lighting, weather protection, and structure styles, tents are the perfect way to bring all the comforts of the indoors straight to your outdoor wedding! 

And just because you a have a tent, doesn't mean you're limited on wedding décor. Couples can choose between enclosed "room in a room" structures with removable walls or breezy high-top tents perfect for a sunny post-wedding brunch. Coastal couples will love the airy style of sailcloth tents that boast high ceilings and and an open-space feel that's perfect for easy mingling. If you're going for a glamorous, black-tie evening, you should consider elegant fabrics draped across the ceilings with a crystal chandelier hanging overhead. Couples looking for something more minimal can opt for a clear marquee tent decorated with twinkling café lights or hanging greenery garlands for a more bohemian touch, like Bisou's very own couple- Delilah and Javier!

Delilah and Javier had a breathtakingly beautiful outdoor tented reception that's straight from our dreams. It gave off a chic, bohemian vibe while also being warm, inviting, and downright comfortable! Look at those couches! The rows of twinkle lights within the tent provided a shimmering, fairytale setting for the happy couple!
