You and your partner will work together to plan the wedding of your dreams! However, are you aware of how to handle any disagreements that may arise?

We believe that your wedding planning should be an enjoyable experience! That’s why, here at Rose Petal Events, we have gathered some tips to assist you in tackling any wedding planning disagreements. Would you like to learn what these tips are? If so, continue reading for some great insight:

  • Talk it out. Communication is so important when it comes to planning a wedding. Not only are you trying to ensure that each of your priorities are met, but those of your partner’s as well. It is completely normal to have your own opinions. However, it poses as making decisions a bit more difficult. If you can talk through your options and weigh out the pros and cons for each, you can discover a middle ground and come to a decision.
  • Be at ease. Having a disagreement with your partner can become frustrating. When things start getting tense, it is important that you take a breather to keep yourself at ease. After you have calmed down, return to the conversation with a positive outlook. A bad attitude certainly won’t assist you with your planning, so don’t continue on until you are both level-headed.
  • Compromise. You and your partner will each have aspects of your wedding that you find to be incredibly important. If you can compromise with one another, that would be ideal. For example, you may have your heart set on certain flowers, while your partner may just adore a certain flavor of cake. If you can choose the flowers and allow them to choose the cake flavor, it will be a win-win for both of you.

We understand the importance of planning a big day! That’s why, here at Rose Petal Events, we have gathered some tips for sending out your wedding invitations. If you are curious to learn what these tips are, be sure to continue reading to discover more:

  • Tissue paper inserts. Your wedding stationery is most likely comprised of many different elements. From your invitations to your RSVP cards, many details will be within your envelopes. Placing pieces of paper against each other can cause smudging, which is certainly not ideal! Therefore, you should consider placing tissue paper between each insert. Not only will it aid in preventing smudging, but it will showcase an additional appearance of beauty.
  • Have confidence in your seal. Licking envelopes is never fun! The taste is not ideal, and sometimes they still open. As you seal your envelopes, you will want to ensure that they are safe and secure. Instead, opt for stickers. The stickers can be personally created to showcase your wedding’s style, to tie into the overall look of your stationery. An additional seal is a wonderful way to have confidence that your envelopes will stay shut.
  • Mail them yourself. Your invitations took a great deal of time to create! Therefore, you will certainly want to ensure that they are securely delivered to each of your wedding guests. Instead of handing the invitations over to someone else to deliver, or dropping them off within a street-side mailbox, take them to the post office yourself and hand them over to carrier. This will ease your mind in knowing that your invitations aren’t floating around the city and actually made their way to the post office.

Your vows offer you the opportunity to express your love for your partner. That’s why, here at Rose Petal Events, we have gathered some tips to assist you in writing your wedding vows. If you are interested in learning some insight, be sure to continue reading to discover more:

  • Plan with your partner. While you will of course want your wedding vows to be a secret until the ceremony, you can still plan out the basics with your partner. Consider determining a length, so that you both can write the same amount of words to share with one another. This can help to avoid any awkwardness, such as if your vows were very short, while your partner’s may be incredibly long.
  • What to write. Your wedding vows can truly be written however you would like. However, if you are at a loss as to what to write, just think about your partner and the reasons why you love them. What made you fall in love with them, what are your favorite qualities about them, and why do you want to spend the rest of your life with them…these are all aspects that can be expressed throughout your vows.
  • Presenting your vows. While you may have written the perfect wedding vows, and possibly even memorized them. However, it is important to bring them along with you to the ceremony. Sometimes, nerves can kick in, causing your memory to become fuzzy. So, having a backup is certainly ideal. When speaking your vows, just focus on your partner. Look into their eyes, hold their hands, and speak directly to them, as your vows are for them, and not for your guests.

Planning a wedding is certainly a big task! However, these tips will certainly assist you in writing your wedding vows.

  • Get personal. Instead of writing a general thank you in regards to the present, thank your guest personally for the gift that was received, and even add a little note as to how you plan on using the gift. For example, if you received dishes, you could write: “Thank you so much for the beautiful dishes, as we look forward to presenting our meals among them”.
  • Be on time. After the wedding, you will surely open your gifts right away. It is important that you send out your wedding thank you cards ideally within a month after the big day, but especially before two months.

Wedding Planning Mistakes to Avoid

Planning a wedding is a big task, but if you are aware of wedding planning mistakes to avoid, you can ensure your big day will be fantastic.

rose-petal-events-03-20-17

You will have a multitude of decisions to make, from your delectable cake flavor to the color of your linens, and it can certainly become overwhelming.

However, the last thing you should do is worry, as there are some wedding planning mistakes that you can avoid when planning, allowing your big day to be presented in the best way possible.

Here at Rose Petal Events, your wedding being planned to perfection is our goal! That’s why we have gathered some of the top wedding planning mistakes to avoid as you plan your big day. If you are curious to learn what these mistakes are, be sure to continue reading:

  • Not budgeting. Money will be the most important factor when it comes to your wedding. After all, everything costs money, so you must ensure that you have it available. When creating your budget, you will want to develop categories for each element within your big day, from your makeup to your flowers. Determine how much you can spend on each, and you will be able to have security that you can afford each element that you would like.
  • Buying your dress too late. It is said that wedding dress shopping should be conducted at least 8-10 months prior to your wedding date. The reason behind this is because you can’t always expect to find your dress on your first outing, and it may take some time. Also, alterations will need to take place, to ensure that your gown fits your body to perfection, and this too takes time. Don’t rush into something that should be such a fun and whimsical experience.
  • Booking vendors too late. You may have chosen the perfect date for your wedding, but without booking vendors, you won’t be able to move forward with your special occasion. Before you settle on a date for your big day, you must ensure that your chosen venue is available. From there, you can then begin to book your other vendors, from your caterer to your florist. The more notice your vendors have to secure your date, the more likely they will be available.

When planning your wedding, you should enjoy the experience! Here at Rose Petal Events, we strive to create your planning process to be a breeze. If you are still on the hunt for a Los Angeles, California wedding planner, be sure to contact us today for your consultation.

Congratulations on your engagement! It is now time to begin the wedding planning. When planning a wedding, you may be at a loss for inspiration, or, you may have far too much inspiration. Both can be equally troublesome. There are so many aspects to consider that will bring your big day together, but it’s all about knowing your limits and creating a gorgeous appearance.

From the vows you declare to the flowers that adorn your tables, there are so many elements that will create your wedding. But, how to do you know where to begin?

That’s why we have gathered some great wedding tips that you should be aware of as you begin planning your big day. If you are interested in learning more, be sure to continue reading:

  • Inspiration. You may be inspired by wedding inspiration that floods the internet and magazines, and you may also have your own, personal inspiration as well. But, how do you combine the two to create the wedding of your dreams? It is important to not be overly ambitious. Take time to create an inspiration board to really grab ahold of what greatly appeals to you. Once you see everything that draws your eye in all together, you can now see what clashes and what doesn’t, allowing you to narrow down your options.
  • Rules. It is important to realize that this is your big day! Therefore, there are no rules when it comes to planning it. Go for what you love, and don’t let anyone cloud your judgement. If you want a male friend as your Maid of Honor, you certainly can. Or if you want to skip the ring bearer and have your dog walk down the aisle, go for it! While wedding etiquette makes itself very prominent it the bridal world, you can stray away from the traditions and create a wedding that personally reflects your interests.
  • Celebratory atmosphere. One key aspect to remember about your big day is that your guests should greatly enjoy it. While your ceremony is usually the most formal part of your day, the reception should be livened up. So, don’t forget the DJ or live band, consider incorporating some games, and don’t let a dull moment take over. Entertainment is important! And your guests will certainly thank you for a very festive day.

rose-petal-events-12-05-16

The air has shifted from a breezy chill to downright cold. Snowflakes fall, creating a winter wonderland. And wedding bells are ringing for you and your soul mate. Winter is such a whimsical time to have a wedding. As snow falls, coating the ground with natural, sparkling, décor, it transforms the world around you (unless you live in California, where you can then only dream of the snow!).

If you and your partner are planning your big day for the Winter months, it should be enchanting! And luckily, there are a few ways you can go about planning your wedding to make it a huge hit.

Here at Rose Petal Events, we want your Winter wedding to be rewarding. That’s why we have put together a few top Winter wedding planning tips to help you have a successful big day, so be sure to continue reading to learn more:

  • Play with colors. Nowhere does it say in a wedding handbook that you can’t use whatever color palette you wish. Yes, there are colors that bring out the wintry season. However, by no means do you must use those in your own wedding. You can create any wedding scene your heart desires, even a tropical one. A tropical scene would be quite the surprise for your guests and can even give everyone a break from the chilly weather that awaits them outside. Utilizing bright colors such as lime green, mango orange, or even pineapple yellow, will set a warm atmosphere, showcasing your tropical theme. You do not have to limit yourself to any color palette, even one that specifically complements Winter weddings.
  • Dress your bridesmaids accordingly. Your wedding is likely being held indoors. The heat will be turned on, there will be no breeze. Dressing your bridesmaids in furs and long sleeves may not work well with the venue conditions. Your bridesmaids will appreciate a lighter attire to accommodate the room temperature. If you are having your wedding outdoors, of course you will want to dress your bridesmaids in warm attire. Although, an outdoor ceremony does not necessarily mean an outdoor reception. It’s crucial to ensure that your bridesmaids are dressed for comfort, no matter the situation.
  • A cozy and welcoming reception. With winter being the coldest season, it’s important that your seasonal wedding be warm and inviting. You can do more than just turn up the thermostat. You can create a cozy environment with your décor. Surely your wedding day will stretch into the evening, which will call for proper lighting. You can keep the Winter spirit alive with candles, and they will give your reception a warm glow. The cold has people wanting to cozy up in their warmest clothes and blankets. You can bring that snug feeling to your reception with lush, comfy textures, such as velvet.

Winter is such a beautiful time of the year, and an equally beautiful time for a wedding. Here at Rose Petal Events, we can help you plan your big day. From Winter wedding wonderlands to tropical getaways in the snow, we are here to help make your dream come true.
