Make sure to have these conversations with your wedding vendors before the big day!

Choosing the right wedding vendors is really important – but what’s probably even more important than that is making sure that you communicate effectively with each and every single one of them. What are some of the most important conversations to have with your vendors before the big day? We have gathered some tips you should definitely keep in mind – so read on and find out more.

Talk to your venue about potential restrictions. Some of them may be have restrictions with flower petals, candles, sparklers or paper lanterns – so make sure you discuss with them about some of the most important details regarding your decorations.
Also, remember to talk to them about what their all-inclusive packages include and whether or not you can bring outside vendors. Some venues will provide you everything you need for your big day, while others may only provide you with a list of preferred vendors (and in some cases, you will not be allowed to work with other vendors than those – so it’s really important to talk about this before you book your venue).
Last, but not least, remember to have a thorough talk with your photographer too. Ask him/her about his/her equipment and style, whether or not he/she has worked at your venue before, how much will it take for the photos to come out and how many of them will be digitally altered, as well as what happens if he/she falls sick before your wedding day. These issues are really essential, so don’t forget about them! Also, don’t forget to discuss some of the types of pictures you want to take at your wedding too!

Let these celebrity first dance song choices inspire your decision for that special moment!

Undoubtedly, you want your first dance to be magical, memorable and full of emotions – and you know the song you choose for this special moment is absolutely crucial. To help you pick the best tune for your big moment, we have gathered some celebrity first dance choice ideas to inspire you – so read on and find out more.

Some celebrities chose to take it the traditional route with their weddings, so their first dance options were equally conventional (but nonetheless extremely romantic). For example, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama danced their love story on Stevie Wonder’s “You and I” – a wonderfully emotional song that will truly show off how much you care about each other.
Other celebrities chose to have their first dances on songs that are more modern, but still within the conventional “rules”. Beyoncé and Jay Z danced away on Queen Bey’s “Crazy in Love”, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner chose David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” and  Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud picked Michael Bublé’s “I’m Your Man” for their big dance.
There are also many famous people who went the less traditional route with their first dances, choosing rock and unconventional tunes to portray their love stories. For instance, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan danced on Green Day’s “Last Night on Earth”, while Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux chose Sia’s “Chandelier” for their wedding dance.

Here at Wedding Planner 808, we want you to have a magnificent wedding that truly shows your amazing love story. Our wedding planning services are here to help you achieve just that – so if you are looking for a planner who knows when to listen and when to take action, you should definitely contact us!

Are you an eco-friendly bride? If so, take a look at some great invitation tips:

In a world that’s running out of resources, being eco-friendly should not be a matter of choice – it should be a must. However, how can you make your wedding more environmentally-friendly? How can you make your wedding invitations and stationery be as least harmful for the environment as possible?

We have gathered some tips for all the eco-friendly brides out there – so read on if you want to find out more!

Recycled paper can go a long way. These days, recycled paper can look really great and it can help you be more environmentally-friendly too. Thus, there’s absolutely no reason not to choose it for your wedding invitations.
Use paper only when needed. Of course, wedding etiquette dictates that you shouldn’t use online invitations. However, that doesn’t mean you cannot use e-paper for your RSVPs and for the other elements in your wedding invitation suite! Keep your invitations properly traditional and go for electronic options for everything else!
Ditch the paper escort cards. With a custom stamp and a bit of creativity, you can transform almost any object into a beautifully unique escort card – so do not hesitate to do it!
Reduce the paper trail for the other wedding stationery elements too. You don’t need a wedding menu for each guest (one per table will do). Also, you don’t need to have wedding programs for every single guest either (create enough of them so that every group has one). These solutions may not seem like a lot, but they can add up when it comes to helping the environment!

Searching for the perfect wedding planner to help you with your eco-friendly wedding? Contact Wedding Planner 808! You will find that we can truly listen to you and that our experience and passion are more than welcomed when it comes to planning the big day!
