The Perfect Man-Gifts to Give The Important Men In Your Wedding!

You may not know it, but you are about to see how important the men in your wedding will be. They will be the emergency help, the last minute errands, the hilarious speech-givers.

The gratitude you will feel for these men--both those you know intimately (your best friend, your brother) and those you are still getting to know (the last minute cousin your mom made you add into the wedding party!) It’s only fitting, then, that you’ll want to get the perfect man-gift for them.

These are things we often wait until the end to take care of. 

 It seems like there are so many things to take care of (well, there are). And gifts for those guys often become the last thing you think of!

Here are some gifts I’ve found, specifically designed for those men who will make your wedding day what you’re dreaming of. All of these are affordable, and come in one-stop shopping!

Sending Out The Invitations!

It's an absolute must to send a wedding invitation to anyone who received a save-the-date announcement. If you don’t send them one, it’s like uninviting them, which is very inappropriate.  What should you include?  Wedding invitation design and key information such as date, time, location(s), names of the hosts, attire details, wedding RSVP with deadline and response card. Directions/Accommodations for out of town guests, would be absolutely perfect and shows your guests that you really care, that you're organized, an you're ready for them to witness your I Do's. You should have an inner envelope and an outer envelope. To wrap it all up, include the weekend schedule and details for dinners, parties, brunches, etc. Don’t forget to belly band and include a stamp. Bonus Tip: Create a wedding website so that you can share your love story that leads up to your wedding day, while this can also include links for your registry and any updates guests would need to know. You definitely have the option to go completely digital. 



Save The Dates?

Should you send a save the date or not? You don’t have to, although, your friends and family will appreciate knowing the details in advance. They have to get prepared as well. It’s a great way to get everyone excited about your special day; you also get to start being creative up front and early in the process. Furthermore, some people may have to request time off from work in advance, save money for travel arrangements, and may even have to arrange for childcare if you don’t want kids at the wedding.

.

Send out save-the-date six to eight months prior to your wedding!!

.Bonus: If you’re having a destination wedding, it’s best to send out your save the dates even earlier~ 9 months to a year in advance❣️

.

Etiquette- Only send a save-the-date to people that you’re for sure going to invite, don’t send to your backup list or B list as if you do, you’re obligated to send them an invite. 



I'm Engaged, Now What?

Congratulations, The❓was popped and You said Yes!! 💍 Tell your immediate loved ones first. The easiest and best way to share the most exciting news is to let your closest friends and family members know that you're engaged before telling the entire world. Let’s face it, your family and friends have those special titles for a reason, Why not treat them VIP?


In person is a great way, but with families and friends living in different parts of the world a simple video call is only a few clicks away!

.

If you were proposed to in front of the family and friends, that’s absolutely awesome. When you share the news with the world, don’t forget to include a picture of everyone looking so excited and happy!!

Be creative when sharing the news as this would be the perfect time to have an engagement party, which also gives you the opportunity to introduce each side of the family to each other. Discuss those family traditions. This is also a perfect time to pass down family heirlooms! 



Should You Hire A Planner?

Hiring a planner depends on several factors. Here at Forever Lovely, We think you should ask yourself a few questions. Do you have a busy schedule? Do you have ideas, but just don't know how to implement them? Do you want your day to be customized to you and your significant other personality? Do you want to show up to your wedding relaxed and ready to say I Do? Do you want the peace of mind that all of your vendors are on the same page and up to date with any plans/changes? Do you want to share your story and create an experience your guests will never forget? Do you want that luxury designed wedding you've been dreaming of? If you're answering Yes; You should definitely hire a planner. A planner provides services that entails the logistics, from vendor referrals and contract negotiation to day-of execution of your expectations and vision. I want you to remove the guesswork from the process so that your planning is seamless. We believe every wedding should be like we plan-

Splurging-Should You?

When planning; each category gets a specific percentage of of your budget. Some categories of planning may not be as important to you as others. You may not spend the entire budget for a particular category and that' absolutely fine. You can definitely give those fundS to another category that means more to you. Yes! You get to splurge by playing the game of give and take. Be careful though, as you want to make sure that there are funds left over. Learn more by scheduling a phone consult.

Wedding Budget

The first step before starting to plan is knowing your budget. This sets the tone for everything. Each planning category gets a percentage of your budget. Knowing how much you have to spend when you meet with vendors allows you to have confidence and control in decision making. You definitely don't want to create or be in debt while saying 

"I Do. Planning starts here!
