December Couple of the Month

With another new month, comes another new highlight. This December, we think back to the warm days of summer by celebrating Sarah and Mike's simple and rustic, yet chic, private farm wedding! Sarah and Mike said vows between two large trees beside a beautiful large pond with all of their family and friends in attendance. Guests were then invited to follow the signs around the edge of the pond to where a breathtaking cocktail hour took place. Followed by a night of non-stop dancing led by a live band in the large barn on top of the hill. Even the sheep, pigs, and horses came out to see what all the excitement was about! 

Sarah and Mike had this to say about working with the Bisou team:

Working with Bisou was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Planning a New York wedding from California was a little difficult, but Sarah was so wonderful to work with and made everything seem easier and more manageable. We had skype meetings approximately once a month, and sent countless emails back and forth about all types of details. I had no idea what I was doing and went to Sarah for her advice on just about everything. She was incredibly helpful and responsive, and really helped us figure out what we wanted the most and how to make it happen. She provided so much support to us during the entire planning process, making us feel like we were on the right track schedule-wise and keeping us on top of everything else. She helped us get some amazing vendors and really made our vision of our ideal wedding come to life. Sarah handled the vendors and the day-of coordination flawlessly, and took so much stress off of our plates. Sarah was also such a delight to have around during our wedding day. We hadn’t met in person before, but from the second she showed up it felt like she was an old (very capable) friend. I’ve gotten so many comments from our friends and family about how great she was. Most things in the wedding world feel like they aren’t worth what you’re paying, but Bisou was worth it ten times over, maybe twenty. We are SO happy that we worked with Bisou - thank you for making our wedding day the funnest and happiest of our lives!

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
