New Years Check-In

At the beginning of the year, I wrote our goals for 2016. If you’re wanting a little recap, you can find that list here. We’re a quarter of the way through the year so it’s time to see how we’re doing.

-Book 5 Weddings

This year, I wanted to book two weddings for full coordinating services and three weddings at Honey Creek Farms for more than day-of coordinating. So far, we are booked for two weddings (one in 2017!) for full services and have booked one HCF bride for additional services.

-Blog

Whoops. My goal was to post at least once a week, and I’ve missed a couple weeks. I’ll continue to work on that.

-Social Media

I wanted three to five posts each week on Instagram and Facebook and so far, I’ve gotten pretty close. We are also a fifth of the way to our Instagram follower goal (we want 250) and a third of the way to our Facebook goal (we want 350). So if you haven’t done so already, go follow and like! And share with all the brides-to-be that you know!

It wasn’t a listed goal, but I also wanted to be involved in a styled shoot. Well, I participated in my first one in March and am busy working on getting that published! I’m also waist deep in planning another shoot at Honey Creek Farms next month. I’ve partnered with Megan at Stress Less Weddings and Amanda May Photography, and I can’t wait to share it with you all! Follow us on Instagram for sneak peaks and to get a glimpse of all the work that goes into the shoots.

I’m very pleased with how this year is shaping up and know that there is so much more to come!

Not So Basic Linens

So often when brides think of linens, they automatically plan on white tablecloths and colored napkins or a basic table runner in navy, gray, red, etc. They think the focal point needs to be a large floral arrangement in a range of vibrant hues. I’m here to tell you, though, there is another way!

Consider trading out the basic table runner for a fun, patterned number! Minted.com has hundreds of options you can choose from. They have adorable runners for bridal and baby showers. Complete the look with a simple floral arrangement (think all white or just greenery) and coordinating napkins. If your venue provides white linens or you like the clean look of them, think about adding a fun place mat for a more casual feel.
