… insights from vicky …

how would you describe your wedding to someone who was not there? what were some of your inspirations? how did you envision the wedding prior to your special day?
Our wedding was a perfect blend of elegant and modern, using colors of gold, navy, mercury and coral. We love simple designs with unique twists, no frills or fuss. To simply put it, it was the most enchanting day ever. The weather was gorgeous, the sun was shining, and the people were having a great time. Even though we had the entire Powel Crosley Estate, it was an intimate and beautiful night filled with lots of love.

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
Yes, I wish I didn’t fixate on every little detail. In reality yes, details are important, but most of your guests will not notice them. I would say the most important thing to remember about planning your/my wedding is that it’s about celebrating you and the love of your life and not about what your wedding favors say.

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
Photographer (Marissa Moss), DJ (Jacob Towe), and Catering (Michaels on East)

what was your biggest wedding day savings?
Wedding Party and Family Gifts, we were able to find great and meaningful gifts without breaking the bank. Etsy is amazing for these items, but do your research you can find great wedding gifts for a reasonable price using amazon, macys, etc.

what was your biggest wedding day splurge?
Catering (Michaels on East), we are big “foodies” and we wanted to make sure we had the most delicious food as well as top of the line service. Michaels on East was worth every penny, all of our guests raved about how amazing the food was and how superb the servers were. We couldn’t have been happier.

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding?
It goes by so fast, enjoy every second of it, it your day!

was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
Ordering way to many save the dates. Make sure you count couples/families as one, and then individual guests. We accidentally counted all guests, oops!

was there a moment during your wedding day that surprised you?
Just how fast everything goes, I mean both of us felt like the whole night was done in 20 minutes.

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
Dancing with our parents, it meant a lot to both of us as well as our families. Also, our private last dance before we did our exit, it was beautiful and it gave us both a chance to soak up the entire night and enjoy being in each others arms.

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
The wonderful looks on our faces when we saw each other for the first time during the ceremony. Also, how happy we both were the entire night, we couldn’t stop smiling.

…insights from lindsey…

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
If I could plan everything all over again, I’d plan a longer reception! Our ceremony began at 5pm and the reception ended at 11pm. The night went by so incredibly fast and I wish I had more time to spend with all of our friends and family that were there to celebrate with us!

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
Photographer, venue and caterer were the most important to us. We knew soon after we were engaged that we wanted to work with Marissa. We were lucky to find out she was available and we could not wait to have her capture our day! When looking at venues, we were looking for something intimate and on the water. Davis Islands Garden Club was the perfect place for us! Also, we definitely wanted to feed our guests a delicious meal and Olympia exceeded all of our expectations on food, presentation and service. We did not go wrong with any of our vendors!

what was your biggest wedding day savings?
I wish I could say I cut costs somewhere… but, I can’t! We did get some alcohol on sale. Does that count?:)

what was your biggest wedding day splurge?
My dress!

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding?
The best advice I received and the best advice I can give is to stay organized. I created a google docs folder and had detailed spreadsheets with vendor information, payment due dates, etc. and kept a binder with all of my vendor contracts. I brought this to each vendor meeting and had it on the day of the wedding in case anything came up and I needed to verify something.

was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
I was planning my wedding from Chicago and would plan trips to Tampa to tour venues, meet with vendors, etc. I was always so surprised at how far in advance I needed to schedule meetings with vendors– their schedules fill up fast!

was there a moment during your wedding day that surprised you?
I was so pleasantly surprised when I walked into the venue! I was amazed at how beautiful everything turned out! It was exactly how I wanted everything to look and it took my breath away. All the hard work we had done truly paid off!

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
I have a couple favorite moments that really stand out. My bridal party surprised me with the most thoughtful gift- a scrapbook with pictures of us from throughout the years and letters for me to read on my wedding day. There was a page and letter from each member of the bridal party, my parents, brother, grandparents and my then-future husband. This meant so much to me!
I loved being able to have my dad walk me down the aisle. I will never forget those moments before we walked out the door and us trying to stay calm and not cry! Walking out and finally seeing my groom was the best part of the day! I couldn’t believe it was finally here. I loved marrying him in front of our friends and family!

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
All the love that we had on our wedding weekend! We are so lucky to have the best family and friends. So many people traveled to Tampa to celebrate with us and it meant so much.

… insights from brianne …

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
I would have hired someone to help. Even if it was someone for the last couple of weeks. It was the small details at the end that I wasn’t as concerned with and didn’t feel like doing but knew they had to get done. I also bought a lot of things thinking I would be able to resell them after and I haven’t had luck in selling them so if I had someone who had connections and could rent things it would have been better.

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
Photography
DJ/Lighting
Venue

what was your biggest wedding day savings?
All of my bridesmaids had dresses from rent the runway. They normally retailed for $720 and they rented them for $70 and they were beautiful!

what was your biggest wedding day splurge?
Photography and Videography. I was very picky with those as I knew their products would last a lifetime.

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding?
Don’t stress and live in the moment- your wedding only happens once and you wont get to do it again so enjoy it.

was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
Since we rented the bridesmaid dresses there was always a chance something might not work out. The week of my wedding- that Monday one of my bridesmaids got an email that her dress was not going to be available for the weekend. I had to call the company and change all of the girls dresses so that they could all match. They were great and we had everything resolved in an hour with new dresses going out to all of the girls that night. It ended up working out for the better because I ended up liking the new dresses more than the original ones.

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
There was a time when it felt like everyone was on the dance floor. I looked at my husband and we both just stopped dancing, and looked around at all of our friends and family having a great time. You need to take the time to stop and take everything in because the day goes by so fast!

… insight from noel …

how would you describe your wedding to someone who was not there? what were some of your inspirations? how did you envision the wedding prior to your special day?
Soft and romantic with a little bling. And fun activities

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
Really researching the event coordinator that comes along with the venue. Very hard to get a hold of, didn’t respond to emails in a timely manner, hidden costs in the wedding. We hired a day of coordinator and she saved us a million times leading up to the wedding and the day of!

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
Photographer, day of coordinator, and the dj

what was your biggest wedding day savings?
Booking the wedding during a promotional time and doing it on a Friday. And researching multiple companies in each field to find the best deal without jeopardizing the feel and look we wanted for the wedding.

what was your biggest wedding day splurge?
We each picked one item we really wanted and didn’t want to budge on, and the rest we compromised and found deals on. Mine was the photographer to capture all of our moments and his was the open bar.

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding?
Number the back of your rsvp/food choice envelopes and coordinate it with the names on the invitation list. Some people won’t sign their names, and you never know who is attending the wedding and who is having what dish. It made it so much easier for us, we had a bigger wedding.

was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
Hidden fees from the venue that showed up 6 days before the wedding that were in the thousands. But we kept record of every meeting and email sent between us and the venue coordinator and they were able to fix it.

was there a moment during your wedding day that surprised you?
Yes, how unorganized my venue coordinator was. My day of coordinator was a blessing in disguise. Literally saved my wedding day countless times.

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
Saying my vows with my husband in front of our family and friends:)and then dancing with them all with our awesome dj!

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
Taking photos with friends and the amazing marissa! Going to places downtown to take photos was amazing! Also dancing the night away with Shayne and everyone:)
