Quick Tip: Shaping Your Eyebrows

"Brows (in my opinion) are the most important feature of the face!
They can make or break your makeup and give expressions that you might not want.

One of my favorite tools to remove hair quickly and painlessly without causing redness are Japanese Razors. They are so amazing! You can quickly remove hair before your event and be able to apply your makeup
- Hide quoted text -
right away. I love that they remove the baby fuzz that tweezers can't, especially for closeups.

*Pro Tip* When using tweezers, try coloring out the hair you want to remove with a white pencil. This makes the shape of your brow stand out and you will see what it will look like before removing any hair.
If redness does occur after tweezing I love to dab on a little witch hazel."

Welcome to
Pro Tip Thursday
Today we are sharing professional advice on...
Choosing a Wedding Theme

What better way to make your wedding more personalized than to choose a special THEME! Picking a theme for your wedding is the most important decision you'll make for your big day, as it helps to coordinate your decorations, invitations, favors, linens, flowers, dresses, menu and all of the other items required to create a magical event. Choosing to work with a theme will guide you in your decisions in finding the perfect location for your ceremony and reception! Once you have a vision of what you want your wedding to "look like", you can then begin focusing on exactly what vendor arrangements will need to be made. This will save you both time and money in the long run.

Here are some helpful hints to get your creative juices flowing...
Start with the basics:

1. What are your favorite colors?
2. Do you want an outdoor or indoor wedding ?
3. Do you want casual or formal?
4. What hobbies do you share?
5. What are your favorite songs/music?
6. What is your personality like?
7. How would you describe BOTH of your personal styles/lifestyle?
8. Where did you get engaged?

Here are a few helpful websites with TONS of theme ideas:

This Week we are featuring

Lindsay Jimison with the A La Carte Event Pavilion

We Love working with Lindsay and the Team at A La Carte.

Please enjoy this professional advice on Choosing a Reception Site:

Comparing Apples to Apples

"As you shop for the perfect wedding venue, you will find that each reception site has a unique pricing structure. When comparing venues, it’s important to ensure that the information and costs you are weighing are the same from venue to venue. If you are comparing “apples to oranges” you may find that what you thought was a good deal, isn’t.

For example, there are a number of ways that reception sites contract their space. First, most banquet halls and specialty venues charge a room rental fee. In this case, a flat fee is paid for the room and all other reception expenses, including catering and enhancements, must be figured separately. In many cases room rental fees don’t include items such as tables, chairs, linen, etc. When working with these venues, it is critical to budget for items that the venue doesn’t provide.

Most hotels and country clubs will contract a wedding based on a minimum food and beverage expenditure. In this case, instead of a room rental fee, the venue profits by selling its catering services. These venues generally include equipment such as tables and chairs, but don’t include items such as flowers, lighting or décor. If you work with a location like this, you will generally be required to allocate a large portion of your budget to catering expenses.

Full-service event facilities, like A La Carte Event Pavilion, contract weddings based on an event minimum. Because our venue provides catering, floral, décor, lighting and many other services, we can offer our clients a great deal of flexibility. Anything that A La Carte provides for the wedding will contribute to the minimum expenditure. Our clients don’t pay room rental fees and are not restricted by food and beverage minimums. Instead, they can prioritize their budget based on their own preferences.

When weighing your venue options, be aware of these subtle contractual differences and the way they can impact your budget. It may take a little extra effort to compare “apples to apples,” but it’s well worth it."
