BIG NEWS!! Mint to Be is LIVE!


We have BIG NEWS! Mint Julep Social Events is now offering online dating consultation services! These days it seems that marriage-minded singles do better online than in bars. According to an article in The Washington Post, “if you’re in the marketplace for romance, megapixels are now officially more effective than bar-side flirtations.” Let’s face it; the rise of technology and changes in society have made it more difficult to meet people through traditional methods. People marry later, work longer hours and live farther from family members who might introduce them to a ...

Trend Alert: Menu Fun!


When it comes to tabletop decor, lately we've been noticing that our clients are opting for "fun" versus "stuffy". Design-savvy couples are loving the addition of stacks of books, antique clocks, putting their own twist (or allowing us to!) on table numbers and with menus! Of course, a printed menu at every seat isn't a must-do nowadays, but it is a sweet touch and an area where clever couples can let their personalities shine through. Check out some of our favorites from Pinterest: These gold outlined hexagon menus look super stylish on these round gold trimmed plates. Am loving t...

Something Blue


I came across this tablescape image on Pinterest the other day and fell in love with the blue and white pottery. In no time at all I was scouring the web for more blue images and my Something Blue inspiration board was born! Isn't she pretty??? I love the hint of apple green in there too. This palette would work any time of year; certainly in winter w/ the addition of green apples and coffee beans to the tables and would be super pretty in the spring by adding bowls of limes to the table design. Feeling blue never looked so beautiful... All images via Pinterest...

{Monday Manners} Rehearsal Dinner 101


Today we are discussing Rehearsal Dinner etiquette. The wedding rehearsal is usually held the day before your wedding and is a run-through of your ceremony from beginning to end; when possible, this is always a good idea as it allows everyone involved to feel more comfortable in what they'll be doing the next day. Anyone who plays a part in the ceremony should attend. Walk through the ceremony and establish timing and the pace, go through all of the elements that are scheduled to occur and make sure everyone knows their responsibilities. Don't forget to bring a copy of the ceremony and any...

Whimsical wedding portraits? Yes!


Isn't it great when a bride and groom can let loose and get a little silly on their wedding day? Case in point: Teresa Strasser & her hubby Daniel. We had so much fun working with this couple; they kept us laughing throughout the entire planning process. And I guess we should've known that when it was time for portraits, these two would step WAY outside the box! We planned a destination wedding for them at The Venetian in Las Vegas. In a city full of great photo ops, they embraced the moment and totally let their guards down. We just love their sense of whimsy, don't you? And h...


A New Year & A New Color!


Happy New Year, everyone! This week is all about fresh starts and I think the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year is a perfect place to begin again. They chose Emerald Green this year, which is one of my all time favorite colors. Maybe it was Pippa who got this whole thing going. Could it be so? Or perhaps it was this chevron beyond-adorable cake? I went bananas the first time I saw images of this gal in all her green gorgeousness on her wedding day. I mean, is it legal to be this fashion forward and fabulous? Me thinks not. Boys can get in on the Emerald Green Pantone P...

A Clean Slate for 2013!


I simply cannot believe it's New Year's on Monday. How on Earth is that even possible??? Any big plans, darlings? So are you resolutions people? I am. Personally, I'm a huge fan of new beginnings (Of course I am. I make a living as a wedding planner!!) and I love the idea of having a chance to start fresh in just a few days. I love writing out my goals for the New Year too; I guess each year I'm just hoping for a better version of myself. What about you? I came across the fantastic work of paper designer Loralee Lewis recently. Inspired by New Years Eve and the idea of a Clean Sl...

Trend Alert: Earthy yet Elegant Weddings


Don't you just love a hint of nature in wedding decor? We definitely do. A lot of couples want an earthy yet elegant wedding and we are here to tell you that you can have both! It's all about balance though. Elegance comes through in the finishes. Lots of candlelight, sparkle and shine. To achieve the earthy side of things, we incorporate more greenery in the overall design plan. Sometimes we even use fresh herbs in the tablescapes and at place settings. So beautiful...so aromatic... Just love that. Here, olive branches do the trick: I love the simplicity of these cakes ...
