Thinking back to my wedding day, I thought I had all the pieces worked out, but then the unthinkable happened, I ended up with my lipstick somehow smeared on the front of my dress. Luckily, my sister had made a day of emergency kit that came to the rescue.

No matter how much planning goes into place, an emergency kit for the day of will always be helpful.  Knots ‘N Such, a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, is here to provide the top 5 items from our emergency kit that may help you the day of your wedding.

  1. A Sewing Kit and Safety Pins
    • You never know when the zipper is going to snag or a hook is going to fall off when everyone is getting dressed for the wedding.  A sewing kit and safety pins will come in handy to do a quick sew in or fix for those unwanted malfunctions. You might also want to think about clear nail polish and/or super glue to help with snags and runs.
  2. A Tide-to-Go Stick or Some other quick stain removing device
    • Like I said about my wedding day, stains are going to happen.  Having a quick stain removing device will potentially come in handy not only for the bride but the whole wedding party.  There are so many elements that are just waiting to attach themselves to these fresh threads.  Being prepared will help calm nerves.
  3. A granola bar, bottle of water, or another mess free snack
    • Weddings are long days.  Blood sugars can drop.  Arrange for meals – breakfast and lunch if possible. Making sure to eat and hydrate will help with any unwanted hunger side effects. No one wants to be the one that passes out in their service. It will also fight off those “hangry” feelings that come along when you are bit too hungry.
  4. First Aid Kit and Over the Counter Meds
    • Long days can bring about headaches, stomach issues, and other minor injuries.  Tiredness, hunger, and stress can all play into this.  It might be great to have a first aid kit for things like bandaids or Benadryl cream. Also having Ibuprofen or other pain meds could be very helpful to get rid of headaches or cramps quickly.
  5. Spray on Deodorant and Mouth Wash
    • Smelling fresh and clean is a goal for everyone’s wedding days.  Have spray on deodorant available to reapply throughout the day.  You don’t want those streaks left from the roll on brands.  Also fresh breath is just as important. Having mouth wash will give you that just brushed feeling.

  1. The Wedding Party
    • Maid of Honor, Best Man, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, Ring Bearer, Flower Girl. Many times these are the people putting in a significant amount of money and time to be a part of the wedding party.  A gracious way to thank them is with a gift to show your appreciation for their support.
  2. Parents 
    • This is not an obligatory gift but is be a beautiful way to thank your parents for being in your life and helping get you to your big day (especially if they are footing the bill for the wedding).  This generally is a personalized gift with some sentimental value.
  3. Shower Hostesses
    • These are the people that planned those wedding showers prior to your big day.  You might think of gift cards to a restaurant with a hand written letter to show your appreciation.  They went out of their way to make you feel special prior to the wedding, and it would mean a lot to make them feel special as well.
  4. Ceremony Participants
    • Officiants, readers, musicians, ushers.  This category fits anyone that went above and beyond your expectation to make your ceremony special and go off without a hitch.  This gift may include a small token of your appreciation, a gift card, and/or a note handwritten to them to show your gratitude for making your ceremony spectacular.
  5. Vendors
    • It takes an army to pull off your big day – wedding planners, florists, photographers, etc.  Planning ahead for a generous tip on the day of the wedding and an amazing review on Facebook, Wedding Wire, etc. would be greatly appreciated for them.  They make their living from pulling off the wedding of people’s dreams, just like yours.
  6. Party Favors for Guests
    • A final gift to think about is one for your guests.  Look for a blog in the near future on choosing the perfect party favors.  However, just think of a way that you can give a mass “thank you” to those people who are with you on your big day.  Personalize it to fit your personality but make it something that people would want to take home as a memento of your wedding. (Food or drink are always hits!)

It can seem like a daunting task to make sure that everyone that is involved in your wedding feels your appreciation.  Set a budget for these gifts, think about a timeline for ordering them, ask yourself “would I want this gift?”, and personalize it as much as possible.  Everyone loves a gracious giver, and the more you plan ahead, the more time you will have to express your appreciation.

Writing Thank You Notes, Tips from Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

Feature image by Amy Nadine Photography. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist

Even before you get married, it so important to go ahead and plan writing thank you notes. Every gift deserves a hand written note from the bride and groom to express gratitude for those people celebrating your nuptials.  Knots ‘N Such, a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, is here to provide you some helpful hints to make the thank you note process easier and doable.

1. Know the Timeline
For gifts received prior to the wedding, it is customary that you have two weeks to write and send the thank you note. Gifts received on or after the wedding, the timeline lengthens a bit to three months.

2. Have all the “Write” Materials
Pardon the pun there, but before you even receive the first gift, it’s so important to have all the materials you are going to need to write your notes. Save your guest list from wedding invitations to have handy when addressing thank you notes. Also go ahead and order your personalized stationery or stock up in stationery from your favorite paper source store. You may even have pre-wedding stationery and take a personalized thank you photo at the wedding to use for post-wedding gifts. Bulk order stamps (the ones that are already sticky-take it from me, they are a lifesaver and will save your tongue).

3. Set a Routine
It may help to have a comfortable writing station somewhere in your home. Turn on your favorite TV show or music. Enlist your significant other to write a certain number of notes a night. Make it a routine and knock them out little by little, so you’re not stuck with a large number to write at one time.

4. Pen a Personalized Note
Each note should have a personal touch that references the couples gratitude, the specific gift they have received, and how the gift and/or the giver have/will impact your life. Be specific with the gift, and in the case of cash, maybe highlight that you are saving for your first home or it will be a great benefit for the honeymoon. Hav “writer’s block”? Search for thank you note samples online to help spur writing and go from there.

Take it from me, you are surrounded by many gracious people who will be glad to celebrate your wedding. Look at thank you note writing as a chance to thank the awesome people that have surrounded you with open arms. I promise you can do it, just make a plan ahead of time and follow through with your routine. Contact us today for help in the wedding planning process, and we would love to help you pen that perfect note of gratitude.  Happy thank you note writing!

Building a Wedding Day Timeline, Tips from Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist

A crucial component to a successful wedding day is building a Wedding Day Timeline. Knots ‘N Such, a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, is here to give you some advice for crafting a timeline that is efficient yet not rushed.

  1. Ceremony & Exit Time: These are the first times to choose, because every other begin and end time will depend on these. Do you want an afternoon wedding? Do you want a twilight wedding?
  2. Photographer’s Schedule: How many hours do you want your photographer to cover? This may depend on your budget, since most photographers have set hours in their packages. Your photographer will talk with you about what and how many photos you’d like to do pre-ceremony versus during cocktail hour.
  3. Hair & Makeup Time: Who will be getting their hair done the morning of the wedding? Your beauty artists will create a schedule based on how many people they’ll be making over and what time your photos are scheduled to begin.
  4. Squad Schedule: Be sure to communicate the plans to your squad – wedding party and family need to know where to be and when to be there. Make sure they are waiting on the photographer rather than vice versa. Once the day gets behind schedule, it’s difficult to catch up, so stress this to your loved ones, so they are ready and waiting. It might be helpful for you to write this up and and email or print for them, so they don’t forget.
  5. Vendor Arrival Times: Each of your vendors will schedule their arrival time on your ceremony start time. They’ll let you know how much time they’ll need to setup and prepare, so ask for their guidance in this area.
  6. Cocktail HOUR: Going back to your photographer… Create a list of photos you want completed during cocktail hour. Make sure he/she can do all that you want in about 45 minutes. Keep your list to immediate family and wedding party only. Extended family guests should be reserved for candids during the reception. You want to keep your cocktail hour to an hour. If you go over, you may be considered a rude host. Guests get antsy, hungry, and tipsy, so be sure to join them ASAP, so the show can go on.
  7. End the night early:  This is a tip I give to a lot of brides.  It will be a long emotionally draining day, and believe me, you will be exhausted.  Confirm with your venue when you need to be out (including break down times), and this will help you set that key departure time. If you want the party to continue, plan an after party and invite key people to join you.

Planning your wedding day timeline does not need to be stressful.  The important thing is to communicate: communicate with photographer, vendors, bridal party, etc.  Make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to arrival and departure times.  A great resource to have is a planner/coordinator for your wedding.  This is where Knots ‘N Such would love to help you.  Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you in your wedding planning adventures!

Drive around the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area, and you will come across some of the most beautiful wedding venues.  Today we are here to help you to choose which of these fantastic spaces fits your wedding and your vision.  Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, gives some tips for making this important decision, and helping you craft the wedding of your dreams.

  • Know your total event budget and Estimate your guest list

Last blog we talked about that b word – budget.  When choosing your venue, it comes up again as important because your budget will help you determine which venues are realistically feasible for you to use on your wedding day. In this market, the average venue for an average wedding is about 20% of the budget. A wedding planner can help you craft and manage your budget, so it’s wise to get one involved from the very beginning.

Before you contact venues, create your guest list. You need to know how much space you’ll need for 85% of your guest list to sit down for dinner.

  • Talk to a planner and Research venues in the area

A wedding planner, like Knots ‘N Such, can be a tremendous help in casting your vision and finding venues that fit your needs. When making your initial budget, determine if a wedding planner fits into that budget and will help you be satisfied at the end of your day. At the very least,  a month of coordinator is essential and can offer advice even during the planning process.

Also, research the venues in your area, check out their websites to see what they offer.  Research photographers that have been at those venues, so you can see the venue as captured by a camera. Does the venue have photo worthy views and spots that will make your photos beautiful?  If you’re the type of bride that likes organization, create a spreadsheet with contact information and details you can gather from their website.

  • Find venues that fit your vision of the big day

Are you planning an industrial chic wedding?  A wedding with unique architectural features?  Are you planning ceremony and reception to be in the same space?  I suggest sitting down with your significant other and writing down your must haves, like outdoor spaces or a space the bridal party can stay the night before.  These must haves will help in finding that venue that fits you and your significant other’s wedding vision.

  • Find out what’s included and preferred vendors

Each venue is a bit different and has different requirements.  In your planning process, find out what’s required or expected during the wedding time.  Do they provide in-house catering?Do you have to use one of their caterers?  Do they have a list of other vendors they require you choose from because they have a working relationship with them?  Is it an all inclusive type of venue? These sort of factors will play into your decision making.

The venue is the focal point that puts the wedding vision into motion.  It creates the ambiance, the inspiration, the storyboard of your big day.  Like we said earlier, a wedding planner, can be such a great resource in helping craft your wedding day.  Knots ‘N Such, a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, would love to help you personalize and customize your wedding, starting with that initial venue decision.  Contact us today!

Being a Bride with a Budget, Tips from Knots ‘N Such, a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist

Feature image by Casey Rose Photography. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist.

Happy 2018 everyone! Today we want to dive into that underlying “B” word of wedding planning: budgets.  Weddings do take money, and that number sometimes can be an overwhelming factor in the planning of their wedding.  First of all, let us tell you nearly every bride is on a budget.  Big or small, there’s always a limit.

Bride and Groom's First Look

However, there are two types of brides when it comes to budget etiquette, and in an effort to help you plan and execute a wedding on your budget with grace and style, we want to help you understand the two categories.

The first is that “bride on a budget”.  This is the bride who understands that any budget has a limit, researches her options thoroughly, and is content with the options that are presented to her.  This bride will look back on the wedding planning experience and rejoice over the final product.  The second is a “budget bride”.  Like the first bride, this bride recognizes that she has a budget, yet struggles to be content with what money can buy for her budget.  This bride will look back on the wedding planning experience and be discontent with the final product. She doesn’t appreciate what her budget can buy, so is forlorn.

When looking at the two types of bride, it’s easy to see that the bride on a budget is what we want for every bride, no matter the budget they have for their wedding.  Here are some tips to help you in your budgeting and planning for your wedding:

  1. Know and set your realistic budget from the very beginning (educate yourself on the cost of weddings in your area, determine what you can afford by setting priorities). If you determine a large wedding is nearly impossible, there’s no shame in having a small intimate affair or elopement. It’s actually quite trendy these days!
  2. Make a list of areas of the wedding and your budget for each category.  Here is a worksheet that can help you get started from the magazine Real Simple Budget Worksheet (do this before contacting any vendors)
  3. Research vendors that are in your budget area (staying within your budget area will help with disappointment later when you receive that estimate). Be realistic with your expectations.
  4. Visit open houses and bridal fairs to gather more information in your planning
  5. Contact vendors that meet your criteria to set up meetings
  6. Realize that vendors are there to educate and support you. Yes, we must be able to support ourselves so must price our products and services to do that. This is a career not a hobby for us.
  7. Before signing a contract, go back to that budget and make sure that you are focusing on those important details from Tip #1
  8. Finally, enjoy the process and look at the options you have and know that your day is going to be special

Knots ‘N Such, a Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, wants to share this information with you, not to scare you off from contacting vendors or dreaming big, but to help you know your budget and not look back at wedding planning as a daunting time.  Our hope is, no matter the budget, you are the bride who is satisfied with every option and gets to the day of their wedding a bride beaming with pride knowing this is the day for them.  Happy wedding planning friends!

Beyond the Centerpiece: Floral Trends and Tips from a Raleigh Wedding Planner

Feature photo by Vesic Photography. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

Close your eyes.  Imagine your big day.  The beautiful dress.  The perfect partner.  The flowers.  Floral designs have been a staple for a wedding for many years.  And designers have broadened to include flowers in more than just centerpieces and bouquets.  Let Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist, help you make your flower dreams come true for your big day. Follow along to look at some unique floral trends that have popped up recently.

-Creating Hanging Flower Displays: I, personally, am in love with the idea of elevating flowers even more than an elevated centerpiece can do.  This trend can include hanging chandeliers with florals as the focal piece, inverting floral displays to give the ceiling a “Secret Garden” motif, or dangling flowers from a potted plant, glass orb, or creating a shower of flowers from the top.  This could be a unique way to showcase your favorite color, signature flower, or just create that “oh wow” moment for your guests.

-Integrating Hair Pieces: Spend some time on social media and you will quickly see that integrating the flowers into your hair design on your big day will create a uniquely fresh look.  From floral head pins to flower crowns, a bride will leave everyone breathless with an elegant hair design.

-Elevating the Cake Design: There are many aspects of the wedding day in which to incorporate floral designs; one you may consider also involves the “sweet” part of the day: your cake.  Cake tasting is definitely a treat during the wedding planning process, so maybe consider bringing your florist along to help in the design of the confectionery delight.  Floral cake design can wrap around the cake (creating a cascading feel to the flowers that might match your bouquet) or possibly a topper that elevates the cake to the next level.

-Highlighting the Ceremony Backdrop: When it comes to your ceremony backdrop, you might want to consider: what unique touches will add to the photographs of the important ceremony?  The ceremony backdrop is an awesome place to add a touch of flowers or make a whole floral showcase.  If you are using an arbor, consider using flowers to accent the arbor or as curtain ties for the drapery.

There are many other ways to incorporate flowers into your wedding and reception design.  Look at your venues and think what could be accented with a beautiful floralscape: a fountain, pompadours, staircases, etc.  The list really does go on and on, from lighting accents to floating florals.  This is where having an awesome florist and/or wedding planner comes in handy to make your garden dreams come true. Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist, would love to come alongside you to incorporate flowers in a variety of ways into your big day.

Bar Tips From A Raleigh Wedding Planner

Feature photo by McCardell Photography. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist

 

Open bar, cash bar, no bar… Alcoholic beverages can quickly become one of the most expensive components of your wedding planning, sometimes even rounding out to be more per-person than your food! Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner, is here with some approaches to the wedding bar that you may want to consider before you write that check:

 

Open Bar

On the more expensive end, the open bar is the most popular choice for weddings. Many couples will often say things like “my family doesn’t really drink”, and while that may be true, there’s just no telling how people may react to the word “free”. The best way to tackle this is by selecting exactly what you would like served at your bar, only go top shelf on the really important drinks (i.e. dad’s favorite bourbon), and set specific hours of operation for the bar so your guests don’t get out of hand. You may even think about coming up with your “signature” drink and then rounding out the bar with more traditional offerings of just beer & wine.

Cash Bar

Less popular but a more budget friendly option: the cash bar. It can save you a lot of money in your budget, however, fair warning: many guests often come to a wedding expecting to drink, so the cash bar can be an unfavorable surprise for some. However, when given an appropriate heads up, many guests are fine with the idea, fully understand, and come prepared. Another alternative is giving your guests drink tickets to ensure everyone gets enough. You can even get customized tickets from a calligrapher with your new name and wedding date! (Note: The option of having a cash bar depends wholly on your bartender/caterer/venue and whether they are allowed to sell directly to your guests. Investigate early!)

Alcohol Free

Dry weddings, while rare, do occur more often than one would think. Besides the obvious financial reasons, it’s also a surefire way to know that all of your guests are getting home safely! However, a beverage list of only soft drinks can leave a party feeling a bit dull. Consider having specialty mocktails concocted and make a special drink list for your guests. You can personally design the names and have them passed around on trays for a fanciful feel! Side note: Adding edible blooms to your drinks is a personal fave of this florist. 😉

Always remember to serve some kind of food whenever you serve drinks, just to err on the side of caution. (Many bartenders require it.) Even if it’s just cocktail hour, have a tray of cheese and crackers available to get something in your guests stomach before they start to drink. That’s a start! Now, contact Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh wedding planner & florist, and we would love to help you out with planning and designing your drink options.

Proposals: Tips From a Raleigh Wedding Planner

Featured photo by Jocelyn & Ryan Photography. Knots ‘N Such is a Raleigh wedding planner and florist.

 

It’s the most important question that needs to be answered during the wedding planning process: “Will you marry me?” More and more people are proposing in grandiose ways! Here are a few of our favorite love stories that we’re hoping you can draw inspiration from!

 

Carrie & John

Being in politics, Carrie was distracted by the busy election season. So, John was easily able to plan a special evening for her that she would never forget. Under the guise of a combined birthday and anniversary dinner, John planned a romantic event. John took Carrie to dinner at The Fearrington house in Chapel Hill, where he insisted they explore the grounds before going into the restaurant. Carrie was confused since it was raining and they were already late for their reservation! But very quickly it made sense, the moment came, and John took her by the hands, got down on one knee, and asked “Will you be my wife?” After dinner, John recommended that they head into Raleigh to see his twin brother, who was hosting a fraternity reunion. Carrie happily obliged, and after arriving at the Capital Club, John led Carrie to a back room where all of their closest friends and family had gathered to celebrate the engagement. A lot of tears and hugs followed and truly made the night a special one for all involved.

Colin & Marianne

Talented musicians and vocalist, Colin and Marianne, took a walk in Central Park one evening. Out of the blue, they turned a corner, and a huge group of their best friends were standing in a circle and started singing “Let’s Stay Together” in a-cappella harmony. Colin sang the solo, of course, and went down on one knee and showed Marianne the ring. It was magical! He had an engagement party planned for that evening with all the friends who had come into town for the engagement!

Amy & Taylor

On the way back from visiting their families on Christmas night, Taylor confessed he was having trouble finding the perfect vintage engagement ring. When they got home, he told her to wait in the car while he ran upstairs to their apartment. When she got inside, he was on one knee surrounded by sticky notes (an inside joke) in the shape of a heart on the floor. Each little note included a handwritten message telling her how much he loved her. The next day, they went shopping together to pick out a ring.

With so many perfect love stories out there, it can be easy to be intimidated about how to pop the question! Just remember to make your engagement as unique as your love and the answer is sure to be “yes”!
