How to Address Wedding Invitations

an article from Real Simple
2 • 19 • 2015  |  Tips & Inspiration
One of the most frequent questions I get asked is how to address the wedding invitations. While many hand a list over to a calligrapher or printer, you still need to have the list formatted correctly, and this guide from Real Simple Magazine is a perfect tool to help you with that process.

As the wedding season is picking back up (we have our first wedding of the season this Saturday!), we wanted to share some more real weddings, and this one is a classic. With the ceremony and reception both taking place at the Bently Reserve, and the brides beautiful dress, this wedding had all the makings for gorgeous day, which id definitely turned out to be. Enjoy these beautiful images from Alison Yin, and keep checking back as we will keep sharing more real weddings with you!
May you both always have as much fun as you did on your wedding night! 
 
Cheers,

BHLDN Pop-up Shop in San Francisco!

January 23 - February 1
1 • 8 • 2015  |  Vendors
Brides in San Francisco: there is some exciting news for some of you that are interested in BHLDN wedding gowns, jewelry, headpieces and decor. They are going to be in San Francisco from January 23 through February 1 hosting a Pop-up Shop and Trunk Show at Firehouse 8 at 1648 Pacific Avenue in San Francisco.  
 
This is a great opportunity for brides that want to see these dresses in person, since there isn't a BHLDN shop in our area currently, and they have some insanely gorgeous gowns in a great price point. The hours of the pop-up shop are: M-F 11am-7pm and Sat & Sun 10am-6pm.
Hope to see you there! 
 
Cheers,

  Kathryn

2015 Bookings

1 • 5 • 2015  |  Misc.
2015 is finally here, and we are so excited for all our clients that are going to be celebrating their marriages this year! We have been working on these weddings for months already, and now the fun final details start to begin with our first wedding of the year coming up in just three weeks at the Bohemian Club.  
 
While we have all these weddings already booked, we don't have many available dates for all the new client inquiries we are receiving. We are limited with the amount of weddings we take per month, and also per year, so that we can focus on each one and not have weddings and events every single weekend throughout the season.  
 
What we are offering though is a way to get some help to get you started with your planning with our budget development package and the vendor referral package. These are setup to assist clients that need help getting started with their planning, and aren't yet sure if hiring a full or partial planner is what they need.
The Vendor Referral Package includes a one hour Skype or phone meeting, and a list of up to ten categories of vendor referrals with at least three referrals per category, based on budget, scope of wedding, style, etc. 
 
The Budget Development Package includes a one hour Skype or phone meeting, a full excel spreadsheet budget narrowed into categories based on overall budget, scope of wedding, style, most important vs. least important, etc. 
 
These have been really helpful to some of our recent clients, and if it sounds like something that you might be interested in, please email us for more information or to setup your package. 
 
If you are looking at booking a wedding for 2016, we are now fully taking bookings for spring and summer 2016. 
 
Happy New Year! 

  Kathryn
