Three things that will make your party a success (and they have nothing to do with pretty details, although I’m a fan of those too)

merriment events

1. Your guests and their experience are paramount. Keep your guests in the forefront of your mind as you plan. That means keeping cocktail hour to an hour; starting the ceremony on time; anticipating your guests’ needs — if it’s going to be hot during your outdoor ceremony, have cool drinks waiting for your guests.

2. Edit, edit, edit. Style does not come from adding on. It comes from editing and being true to your vision.

3. Don’t establish a vision for your event and a guest list before you know what things cost in your area. Do educate yourself on what things cost in your market and establish a budget and a guest list based on that information.
