3 Tips From Local Experts For A Successful Wedding Day
Spring wedding season is gearing up in St. Louis, and we want you to be prepared to have the most enchanting—and relaxed—day possible. That’s why we’ve partnered with three local wedding pros who can offer a little insight from their years of experience.
Ease Your Mind
When planning a wedding, Style Altar’d wants you to remember that there are no rules: if you don’t want a bridal party, don’t have one. If you want cotton candy instead of cake, do it! And when finding a wedding planner, go with one that just wants to celebrate your love story.
Style Altar’d’s tip: Allow yourself to enjoy every moment of your wedding day. To achieve your look (possibly like the layered boho style pictured above), partner with a wedding planner who understands your vision and can execute it. Planning a wedding is a big undertaking. Be inspired, not overwhelmed. Invest in your sanity and have no regrets.
On the day dedicated to celebrating you and your loved one, you don’t want to wear the same dress you’ve seen every bride wear—you want something that speaks to your personality, something that is uniquely you, like the beautiful, detailed dress above. For that kind of selection, you want to visit a bridal gown shop that celebrates every bride’s charisma.
Mia Grace Bridal’s tip: Few things in life make as dramatic a statement as a wedding gown. Amplify your personal style and wow your guests by choosing a stunning silhouette unique to you. A beautiful illusion back, accented with crystals or lace, will make the evening as memorable for them as it surely will be for you and your partner.
When you want to add a little something different to your day—like diamond-shaped piñatas or pops of floral in your venue decor—go with an element made with heart and soul. The women at PK Paper Art have a love and a passion for the paper accents they create, which can take from 15 minutes to three hours to craft.
PK Paper Art’s tip: Create an unexpected twist to your wedding by incorporating florals that will last forever. Paper floral decorations can be added throughout the venue—tables, chairs, photo backdrops or interspersed with live flowers in your bouquet—to create a focal point and to add a feminine touch to your big day.
