We all know by now that your wedding day is special, and even though you want it to be beautiful, you want it to reflect your personality as a couple as well. Right? Right. I mean, long after the Pinterest boards and wedding trends are gone, all you’ll have left is your photos and beautiful memories — and you want to look back on them with fondness! For a wedding day that’s truly unique and true to the couple, you don’t need to look any further than the gorgeous and quirky wedding we have in store for you today.
The bride and groom, Ashley and Josh, are self-described non-traditional traditionalists… and as meta as that sounds, it totally makes sense when you see their unique wedding day! Ashley rocked a fluffy white dress with glasses and the raddest tattoos, and their barn wedding was filled with fun shabby chic details and lots of love! This purple and green wedding (I mean, that bouquet is gorgeous!) is tasteful, quirky, fun and hip all at the same time. Captured expertly on film by Meagan White Photo, you’ve got to see it to believe it!
As soon as you get engaged, one of the most exciting parts of your engagement is taking your engagement photos. It’s the first chance you get to express yourself as a couple and make memories that will be with you for the rest of your marriage… not to mention it’s a fun excuse to get pretty and get a practice round or two in with your photographer!
One of the hardest parts of putting together your engagement photos is deciding on the location. Where will you be taking these memorable photos, and what will the overall look and feel be? One of the best things to do is brainstorm what you love to do together as a couple, which is exactly what Niall and Brittany did with Paisley Photography! Their cozy camping themed engagement photos are the perfect mix of personal and romantic. Between making s’mores and cuddling under a blanket, they took some pretty darn adorable engagement photos which we’re excited to share with you today!

If you’re recently engaged, I can only assume that the big day is occupying your every waking thought and dream. From flipping through magazines and browsing Pinterest, you may believe that the sky is the limit when it comes to who and what you can include on your wedding day.
However, I’m here to give you a bit of a reality check – weddings are expensive! Whether you plan to host 50 or 150 guests, there is no way to avoid specific costs that come with the territory of planning any type of wedding.
Your best defense in staying on track and not spending more than you can afford is to set up a wedding budget! A budget is the best way to outline all the upcoming expense categories, as well as to prioritize which vendors and extras are most important to you and your significant other.
Use these easy-to-follow steps for how to create a wedding budget in order to help make your wedding day dreams a reality (without spending your life-savings!).

For most, the start of a new year means resolutions and goals and maybe even hitting the gym again after that indulgent holiday season. Here at Wedding Party our favorite part of the new year is looking at all the fabulous trends coming out this year. We’re making our predictions for cool wedding details in 2015 and we’re getting very excited to see a lot of lovely couples incorporate them into their celebrations. Some of these trends make big statements on a small budget, and some of them make life just a little sweeter for all your guests. We can’t get enough of rose gold and eucalyptus and we can’t wait to see lots more this year!
