Glamorous Palm Springs Wedding

With the warm weather right around the corner, we're craving a bit of Palm Springs and remembering this gorgeous wedding we did a while back. We love working in the desert heat when we get to have this much fun! Meg's dress, her pup, and the subtle hints of sparkle were some of our favorite aspects of the day. The overall design was mostly classic and romantic, but with the added geometric details, the day felt modern and fresh. Meg and Scott were so much fun to get to know and make their wedding dreams come to life. We can't believe it's been two years already since this beautiful wedding happened!

Chill Out With Sangria Lolea

We love a good sangria, so when we found Sangria Lolea, we just had to share it with you! It's perfect for any bridal shower or bachelorette party. Both the red and white versions are equally refreshing and would be amazing on a hot summer day. We love the fruity flavor and hint of fizz.

In "Love" with Voveti...

Happy February! The month of chocolates, love notes, and flowers is upon us and it wouldn't be complete without a little bubbly. We had to tell you about the new Italian VOVETI Prosecco, which got its name from the Latin verb voveo, meaning “to vow or promise". It's the perfect compliment to any date night or getaway and would be perfect to add to your wedding. It's elegant, affordable and looks great on a table or given as a gift. Hints of honeysuckle, green apple, melon, and ripe peach made us swoon and we'll be sure to pop open a bottle for ourselves this Valentine's Day. 

         

 

Holman Ranch

I recently had the chance to escape to the gorgeous Carmel Valley and stay at The Holman Ranch. The environment was instantly relaxing and the grounds are so beautiful. The owners are the nicest people and the wine is unbeatable. What's not to love? With such stunning views and surroundings it's the perfect place to say "I do". The setting made me feel like I was somewhere in the Mediterranean, not just a short drive from San Francisco! If you haven't been yet, add this place to your list of to do's next time you drive through Carmel, you won't regret it!

XO, Erin






Save The Date Tips from The Aerialist Press

Happy engagement season! Alex from Aerialist Press here. Big thank you to Bustle Events for having us!

Now that you have the sparkler on your finger and are starting the planning process, one of the questions that will pop up early on is save the dates and how to word them. Etiquette decisions will never be as glamorous as picking out your dress, the style of your invitations or tasting some seriously yummy cake. That’s where we come in!

We have created a pretty little guide and infographic to help you select the perfect words to ask your guests to save your date. Our infographic will get you started with some example wording and the basics of what to include and what not to include. We’ve also added in some tips and tricks about when to send, how to handle announcements for destination weddings and where to include your wedding website. For more, you can always visit the guide on our blog here: http://theaerialistpress.com/Blog/12-save-the-date-wording-ideas/

We are also happy to answer specific etiquette questions in the comments if you have any! Happy planning!
