This mint pink and gold rustic wedding brings up a great question; you spend 12+ months planning for this big day, but what about the days leading up to it? What do you plan for out-of-towners coming in early?
This lovely bride shares her struggles with this issue and suggests a great idea for last minute guest dropouts as well! Keep reading to find out more and be sure to visit the full gallery to see every last breath taking image from Let's Frolic Together! Oh and did we mention there's a budget breakdown below too!
More Plans For Out-of-Towners
From the Bride: I would have planned more pre-wedding activities. I had family come in from out of town all ready to celebrate and explore, and I had nothing planned! Plus I only took a couple days off from work prior so they were left to their own devices. Next time I would definitely take a week off prior and coordinate more with family ahead of time to make the most out of their trip.
Last Minute Guest List
I would also make a stand-by list for last minute cancellations. We had a few people who told us the day before they couldn't make it. There were a few coworkers and friends that didn't make the final guest list which I would have loved to call last minute. Plus there were a bunch of people who I had previously said no to plus one requests.
Two Hearts In Love
From Let's Frolic Together: it was all sorts of a magical wedding for these adorable, hilarious and awesome high school sweethearts who finally made it official. At the reception mint and pink defined the pretty day draped in lovely florals. These two souls swapped dress shoes for some pretty sweet sneakers and hit the dance floor. The toasts were heartfelt, the energy was giddy, and everyone had a ball as dusk faded into the moonlit night.
