Ummmm, Hi.

Almost a year ago to the date was my last post on here!?  Unacceptable, Danica, unacceptable!  ((sigh))  I love to write, I always have. It amazes me that I can never keep up with a blog.  Not to mention a blog that encompasses wedding planning, one of the most fun things to talk about if you're me!  So, here I go again.  A post with no promise of when the next post will come.

It has been a busy summer with some insanely amazing weddings. A few weekends ago I had the privilege (that's right, the actual privilege!) of coordinating a truly rustic wedding for Britni.  If you've been following wedding trends for the past couple years, surely you have seen how rustic weddings have been all that and then some.  However, not everyone does them the "right" way.  Britni, though?  Britni nailed it.  I wish I had pictures, but sadly I was too busy running around to take any.  I am patiently waiting for some from the photographer and I promise to post some when I get them.  The wedding ceremony and reception were held at Trimborn Farms in Greenfield, Wisconsin.  Click the link to learn more about this unique venue's rich history and then imagine yourself planning a rustic wedding there.  Britni is crafty by nature and actually operates her own Etsy store too, but she truly took it to the next level with her decor without it being over done.  The tent was filled with a mixture of round and rectangular tables clothed in white linen and her own burlap table runners with natural wooden folding chairs.  Centerpieces were freshly cut slabs of tree trunks with wildflowers placed in wine bottles atop them.  Did I mention the wine bottles had personalized labels that doubled as the table numbers?  Oh yes, my friends, genius.  This couple also utilized some old windows and used them as a seating chart - each guest's name and table number were written on the glass.  The creativity just didn't end.  Burlap bunting hung in the barn, an old time menu board featured the evening's buffet items, and homemade pies were showcased on DIY wooden stands.  Oh, and did I mention that during cocktail hour there were also yard games scattered around to be played?  This bride and groom wanted to have fun and wanted their guests to feel relaxed on their special day.  Mission accomplished and hats off to them! 

Pictures coming soon.  I hope.

The wedding planner may be needed or not. It depends upon the engaged couples requirements. Those who want to plan the wedding by themselves. They may use the wedding planner iPhone app and get gain from it.
