Destination Wedding Inspiration | New Mexico

Destination Wedding Inspiration | New Mexico

I have been to New Mexico several times, and I have always found beauty and a certain level of serenity when I visit there. I think it's one of those states that go unnoticed. There is so much to see from the Mountains up in Taos where you feel like you're in Northern CA, to the beautiful natural red rock Jemez Mountains filled with several natural hot springs, where soaking mountain-side is a real life thing you can do there! The mix of culture is very present and something truly worth experiencing...

It’s been a while since I have blogged, and I am really looking forward to getting back into it as I am headed into out off-season. This year of 2017 I do have to say that we Jessica Wonders Events has had the pleasure of planning some of the best weddings yet.

Why it matters to put your wants on your big day above all else

Why it matters to put your wants on your big day above all else

It can get tricky when planning a wedding to silence the outside opinions of everyone around you from your friends, family, your fiancés friends and family, the lady in line at the grocery store. I think you get the point.

Seasonal Flowers

Seasonal Flowers

Can we talk about flowers for a minute!? Specifically wedding and event flowers, and even more specifically in Minnesota. If you live, have lived, or ever even visited you know that we certainly do not have beautiful blooms of flowers here all 12 months out of the year. Heck even if you haven't visited you have likely heard on the news about our often traitorous winters, and with that, and with that, you can imagine that we are most certainly not able to grow much during the winter here.

We Heart Champagne Press

We Heart Champagne Press

Our friendship, and colleague relationships all started with this adorable box of BEAUTIFUL and totally stunning paper goods that were delivered to our door. She just wanted to say hi and make an impression, and that she did guys. You see there is something huge you are missing here in this blog post. The actual paper goods themselves, while I know Krista Sterling Photography has shown them off in the best possible way with her photo skills, it's something to see this pretty paper that is Champagne Press in person.

What do your guests really remember about your wedding!?

What do your guests really remember about your wedding!?

Is it those little chocolates you spent far too much time, and way too much money on, that were left behind and thrown away at the end of the night? Was it the color of the napkin? Or maybe, just maybe it was that diy décor you put a lot of work into making pretty, but it didn’t actually work out in the end but you went with it anyways!?

Adults Only: How to tell your guests

Adults Only: How to tell your guests

Some couples choose to have an adult only wedding and the reasons vary. No matter what the reason, your guests should kindly respect your wishes. After all it’s a great reason to get a babysitter and make a night of it! The tricky part is how do you get the point across while being polite, but very clear? The best option is your invitations/rsvp cards.
