Your wedding day is already going to be quite an affair, so why not relax with a casual rehearsal dinner the night before? Set up shop in your favorite restaurant with your loved ones, a cute outfit (tulle skirt highly reccommended!) and some good cocktails.
Your first dance as a couple. Arguably one of the most important and beloved wedding traditions. It’s the moment everyone waits for. And what would a first dance be without music? Creating a playlist for your special day is crucial – it can share the emotion of your wedding day, set a certain mood for your guests, and help convey the bride and groom’s personalities.
Here’s some helpful tips for creating the perfect wedding day playlist:
1. Band vs. DJ vs. DIY Playlist: The first step is deciding whether you want to hire a live band, DJ, or create your own DIY playlist for the evening. In the event you choose to hire a live band or DJ, consult them first and take full advantage of their professional expertise. However, it’s important to discuss beforehand the kinds of genres you like and don’t like. Another helpful tip – provide them with a detailed list of the day’s events and festivities so that they can plan to usher guests from event to event with music that will set the appropriate mood. Also be sure to discuss toasts and scheduled dances. The key is to allow them some creative license, but make sure to put your two cents in as well. If you’re opting for the DIY playlist route, you can have more control over the exact song selections, but it does require more work on your end. Enlist the help of a music enthusiast friend to help put together the playlist and manage the speakers and electronics for the evening. Be sure to include extra songs on each song list in case the event–like dinner–unexpectedly run over.
2. Communicate with the Venue: Be sure to speak with the venue beforehand to discuss what rentals it may require and does/does not include. The basics include speakers, microphones, and sound equipment. Also discuss whether electrical outlets will be sufficient, or if you will need a generator.

In the midst of wedding preparations and festivities, it can be easy to forget about the little ones. Though they may be young, they’re here to help celebrate your big day too. Making your flower girl feel like a princess or ballerina can be as simple as adding some tulle. With the help of a pretty dress and some sparkly shoes, she’s sure to feel straight out of a Disney movie!
When thinking about flower girl dresses, choose something that will compliment your own wedding dress, style and theme. One of this year’s most popular styles is dresses with tulle skirts. You can personalize it by incorporating accent colors from your wedding color palette, florals, sequins, sashes, and more.
