  • Get started with a DIY Wedding Planner {Binder}!

    Hey lovers! Congratulations on your engagement! Now it's time to start the planning process? Planning your wedding day is exciting, but also can be overwhelming. There is lots to do and sometimes not enough time to get it all done by yourselves. Especially when you have many ideas and are finding it hard to decide on a theme or venue etc. This is where a wedding planner (person and binder version) come in handy. Even though a wedding planner (person) is not for everyone. A wedding planner (binder) definitely is. This is one of the must-haves for any event. Especially a wedding. Binders are a great way to keep all your ideas, plans and information in one location. If you are a DIY bride, this will ensure your papers are not lost underneath all the wedding crafts and projects you are about to undertake. Before you do, check out our free printables in our latest post! These may help save you DIY brides time! What you will need! Before you can build your wedding binder, you will need to get your supplies: Binder Paper & Lined Notepads Divider tabs (coloured) Clear sheet protectors Sticky notes (coloured) Highlighters, markers and pens (coloured) We highly recommend starting off with a white binder. It is a wedding after all. But even more so, this will alow you to stay focused on the content rather than the binder itself. It is also important to get a range of colours for the colour coding you will be doing later on. Organising your binder! Once you have your supplies, it is time to start organising! Yay! A typical wedding binder will be organised in the following sections. Create a fun cover page design similar to your invitations or theme for each section below: Cover page Timeline Budget Guest list Invitations Venue Theme and Decor Inspo Vendors Wedding party contact details Wedding Dress Bridesmaids Groom Groomsmen Registry Rehearsal Dinner Plans Ceremony Reception Honeymoon Remember this is YOUR wedding. Make it your own. You can have sub-headings, you can change all the above sections. Work with what will help you stay organised and happy. There is nothing set in stone here! What we love about binders is that you can add just about anything. You can add lined notebooks for any notes you take in vendor appointments, or a spot to keep your receipts in the clear sheet protectors mentioned above. Start using your binder! Now that your binder is organised into sections, it is time to start using it. Anything you have already organised, place in the relevant sections. Any inspiration that you haven't decided on, place in the Inspo tab. This will help you keep track of anything you like before making decisions. Make sure you keep your pages in their relevant sections. This will be extremely handy in the future of your planning. Keep a print out of any of your electronic spreadsheets, listed or pinterest board. This will help you stay on top of up-to-date information. QR Codes! And yes, it sounds like a lot of paper and we aren't in the business of ruining the environment. You can easily create QR codes for any links to your online spreadsheets, lists or pinterest board. Simply visit and print this instead. QR codes can be read easily with your smart phone - most phones read without an app!!

  • Your must-have engagement party tips for 2020/2021!

    Hey lovers! Congratulations on your engagement! It's time to kick off your wedding celebrations in style. An engagement party is a great way to celebrate the start of your married life and get family / friends together to celebrate before the wedding. As any event planning, there is much to do and more often than not short amount of time. And questions, so many questions. Hopefully we help answer some of them below! So join us for the journey and get your top engagement party tips from our Event Designers. We are going to talk all things Engagement Party from Etiquette to Steps to plan to Best Decor Tips! Your Engagement Journey Engagement Party Etiquette Who is the host? Traditionally engagement parties are hosted by the Bride's parents, but as weddings and engagements become more modern. It is anyone's game, whether you want to host it on your own or be showered with love by your parents hosting the party. When should I throw the party? Most professional event planners will say within 3 - 6 months of your engagement. But we say - WHENEVER YOU WANT! Everyone's situation is different and things happen to get in the way of party (and wedding) planning. Do what feels right for you. Invitations - paper or e-vite? It truly depends on your style. Having a formal, sit down engagement? Send paper invitations for an added elegance. Having an informal, casual or cocktail event? Send an e-vite. It is a great money saver and also eco-friendly. In fact, send an e-vite where possible. There are so many wonderful choices for e-vites and wedding / engagement party websites which are great alternatives. Save on stamps! Guests - who to invite? It is polite to invite only those who you will be inviting to your wedding. An engagement party is like a pre-wedding celebration, so your guests will be waiting and holding out for an invitation to your wedding. There are some exceptions, such as elopements. You may invite all your friends and families to your engagement party but elope in secret. Or when you have a huge engagement party and a small, very intimate wedding. And obviously, things change. Friends may move away, you may make new friends depending on the date. You may decide to invite more than your engagement party, which is totally fine. But it is taboo to invite less than the engagement party. Just keep in mind that guests will be expecting an invitation to your wedding and it can be awkward when they aren't invited. Gift registry - yes or no? Gifts for engagement parties are not mandatory, they may be given by your guests, but certainly not mandatory. Avoid signing up to the registry and avoid including the details with your engagement invitation. What you can do is: sign up to the wedding registry prior to the engagement. Ensure you give the details to your parents and bridal party. The reason why is this will give them the opportunity to pass the details along if anyone asks those particular people for engagement party present ideas. Our parents haven't met yet! If they haven't already, your parents should meet prior to the engagement party in an intimate setting. We highly recommend an intimate dinner. This will allow them to meet and get to know each other without the atmosphere and the background of a party. Now it is time to discuss the steps for planning an amazing Engagement Party. Steps to planning an amazing Engagement Party Decide who is the wonderful host Before starting any planning, you should decide who will be hosting your engagement party. As mentioned above, this is usually hosted by the Bride's parents. But this is not always the case. And in modern times, your parents may not be expecting to host. It may be your friend, family member or wedding planner. Make sure you speak with them and identify who will be hosting. This is important for the next step in Engagement Party planning. Set a budget Once you have decided who will be hosting, you will need to set a budget. Traditionally, the host would be the bill payer. Again, in modern times, this is not always the case and the host may not be expecting it. Please ensure you communicate effectively with your host to set expectations. This will help you in the planning process for a smooth and happy planning experience. The budget is important to be set before deciding on the next steps in Engagement Party planning. Pick a date Picking a date or approximate time of the year is important. This will help you set the theme, find your venue and gives you a basis for your timeline. You will need to work all your planning back from the date or time of the year you choose. So choose wisely. Whether you want a spring, fall or winter engagement party. All are amazing times to celebrate love and can really drive the theme for your engagement party. We love themes! Can you tell? Finalise Guest list Once you have picked the date, you need to write up your guest list. We have generated a free printable flow chart that will help you with this step. Remember: The etiquette is to invite only those who you will invite to the wedding. This will avoid hurt feelings and awkwardness. And obviously, things change. Friends may move away, you may make new friends depending on the date. You may invite more than your engagement party, which is totally fine. But it is taboo to invite less than the engagement party. Download here Find your venue Now that you have your date / time of the year, guest list and budget - you are ready to find your venue! Yay! Based on those previous steps, you should be able to narrow down your venue choices. Think about the important things in venue finding: Location, Size, Food and Drink Style, Inclusions, Reputation and Date/Time. Choose a theme Usually influenced by the venue, next is to choose a theme! Ahhh, so exciting! We love themes!!! .... I think I've already said that, oh well. Themes are wonderful. They help set the mood, guide you through your invitations, food, decor and so so so much more. Picking a theme is a chance for you to let your personality shine. Personalise your experiences! It is YOUR wedding. About YOUR love. After all! Send out invitations Invitations are out! As listed above, your invitation is influenced by your style and whether you are going for an eco-friendly approach. Whatever way you chose. It is time to send out your invitations! And get those RSVPs in. Especially dietary requirements. When you receive dietary requirements, keep a record of these in a book or spreadsheet. This will be extremely helpful when you are organising food for your wedding! Food - yum! Now to plan your menu. You may be sensing a pattern to this whole planning thing. Everything has a cause and effect. But again, your menu is controlled by your venue and limited by the style of your engagement party. Think about your guests and their style. Yes, the wedding and engagement party is about you. But who wants a bunch of money spent on food no one will eat. No one does, that's who. Our favourites below are winners for almost all guests. Ensure you have vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options for those RSVPS. Cocktail: Gourmet Meatballs, Burger Sliders, Mini Desserts and Grazing Tables!!!! Formal Sit-Down: Grazing Board for the entrée, Steak or Chicken for the main, and individual royal desserts to finish off the night. Select decor & styling items One of the most fun parts about planning events is the styling! Who doesn't love picking out colours and decorations?! If you regularly struggle making decisions, then this may not be for you, perhaps consider hiring a stylist. They have the perfect eye to turn your engagement party into a beautiful event. If you are just as excited as us by picking out colours and decorations to suit your venue and theme, than go right ahead and start selecting your decor. See below for some further tips for 2020 and 2021 engagement parties. Decide on attire Most engagements have a cocktail dress code. However, depending on your venue and theme, you may go for a more ball gown or even more casual attire. If you are steering away from cocktail dress code, it is best to notify your guests on your invitations to ensure they are aware. I don't know about you, but I hate turning up to an event underdressed or overdressed. It can cause discomfort in those that regularly avoid the spotlight.

  • Themed Parties - without the expense

    Are you asking yourself "What am I doing?", "This is going to cost so much", "Why is everything so expensive!"? Then you may be planning your next event or party the wrong way. Don't get me wrong - I love themed parties more than anyone I know. I love decorating, planning the invitation and outfits to go with it. But it can get expensive.. see my tips below to reduce your expenses when it comes to Themed Parties. Tips To Reduce Your Expenses: 1. Pick a theme that can be achieved using colours. I always recommend my clients to steer away from licensed balloons, cups, plates, serviettes, decorations etc. when they are on a budget or trying to reduce expenses to focus on other special items for their parties. Usually one or two licensed décor and staples are enough, they add the super cute feel and usually great quality - however, they do become a ridiculous and an unnecessary expense when you are trying to go all out on licensed items. Here in this picture - our client could have bought licensed decorations, balloons, plates, food etc. And would have achieved a beautiful set up. But is this not already? For example: A hungry caterpillar party - all you need is rainbow everything and your almost finished (add a hungry caterpillar cake and books, there you have your theme!) Another option is to look into hiring or buying second hand - depending on the decoration/item, you can find amazing things for amazing prices. Op Shops can be your best friend! 2. Choose decorations you can make yourself. The sign for the TWO wild party was made with printed paper and laminating sheets. This was a simple and cost effective way for our client to have a sign without having to pay the big bucks from sign suppliers. For the backdrop, the client hired our pallet wall - which is another simple and cost effective solution. If you or your partner are handy enough to put something like this together, all you need is a pallet (at times you can get them for free), sander and the right paint. Be sure to snap up a good pallet! 3. Use what you already have. This sounds like a no-brainer and may be hard for some to picture. But it truly is the best tip. In our set up below for the Tri-ceratops / Dinosaur themed party - we utilized our clients inside plants to add elements and colour. Our client also used plates, platters and bowls they had around the house - instead of buying or hiring them for the set up. And we think it looks great! 4. Cake Let's be honest - a lot of people come to parties for the cake. Especially the adults. When an invitation for a kids party comes in, you are definitely not jumping up and down... But then you think of the food! Yum! Cakes can be the ultimate decoration - that ties it all in together - that makes the whole set up amazing! Make sure your cake is like your theme threw it up! Sorry for the OTT image. It doesn't have to be crazy and over the top colours or toppings, but should scream your theme. Make sure you look around and keep trying new bakers. We have a baker that we love and use all the time - she is reasonably priced and her cakes always taste amazing. But finding her was not easy and we personally went through some ok-not terrible bakers before this.. Also can you believe this cake was only $70 AUD? I couldn't! And the last but not least tip is. . . 5. If you are hiring any items or have a party planner, check with them if they have recommendations or deals with other companies! It never hurts to ask for specials or to give your supplier a budget to work with. But it definitely doesn't hurt to ask if they have any recommendations or deals with other companies if they are referred through your planner. This can equal discounts, free giveaways and more - you just have to ask. Check out our other Theme's via Hire > Theme This! ~ Weddings | Parties | Corporate Events | Conferences ~
