The Mackey House and Savannah Venue Management Won the Best Booth Award!

Here at The Mackey House and Savannah Venue Management, we truly love what we do – and we believe it transpires in every action we take, regardless of how large or small it may be.

Last Sunday, we participated in the Savannah Bridal Show – an elite bridal event held at the Civic Center in Savannah.  As we are truly passionate about the wedding industry, this special occasion was a true delight for us.

To our surprise and excitement, this event brought us another beautiful “trophy”: the Award for the Best Booth. According to this award, our Bridal Show Booth was the best decorated one out of no less than 120 booths. We must admit, this made us feel really happy – and this is precisely why we feel that we need to thank the great people who were behind the design of this booth.

5 Things You Don’t Have to Do on Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day! You’ve been dreaming of it ever since you were a very young girl! You’ve planned it, you know every single step you should make (and every little thing your wedding party is tasked with as well). You know what to do on your Big Day.

But do you know about the things you don’t have to do on your wedding day? We have gathered 5 of the most important things to avoid – so read on and find out more.

  • – Don’t overwork yourself. This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of event and you will not get it back once it’s gone. Task your close friends and relatives, hire a day-of coordinator and don’t overschedule yourself. Take it is and soak in these truly special moments!
  • – Don’t drink too much. It’s OK to have a glass of champagne with the girls while getting ready – and you can definitely have one-two drinks throughout your wedding reception too. Other than that though, keep yourself sober. You want to actually remember this day, right?
  • – Don’t try anything new (especially when it comes to your makeup and beauty routine!). You really don’t want a rash on your face or a lipstick that’s so bad it will smudge your future husband as you give him the ceremony kiss.
  • – Don’t skip breakfast. We mean this: breakfast is a very important part of every single day – and even more so when there’s such a huge rollercoaster of emotions lying ahead of you. Have a nutritious, easy breakfast (such as oatmeal, for example).
  • – Don’t let the little accidents ruin your day. It may rain, the flowers may be a shade lighter than you wanted them and the cake may not arrive on time. Whatever happens though, treat everything with a laid-back attitude. As mentioned previously, this is a completely unique moment in your life and you should enjoy it!

How Much Do We Need to Tell Our Guests About the Wedding Ceremony Beforehand?

Your wedding ceremony is bound to be one of the most romantic and magical events of your life. But if you are asking yourself “how much do we need to tell our guests about the wedding ceremony”, you have come to the right place.

Following, we have gathered some useful tips to help you decide what information you should be sharing with your guests before the Big Day. Read on, find out more and make sure your guests are prepared!

  • – If you are having an outdoor ceremony, make sure to specify this to your guests. This way, they will be able to choose adequate clothes and they will also be able to wear shoes that will not be too uncomfortable for the outdoor space (e.g. high heels on grass or sand, for example).
  • – If your ceremony is going to be more religious, your guests should know more about the particular traditions that have to be followed. In certain religions, the women should cover their shoulders, while in others, the men are expected to cover their heads. Your guests should know about all these customs before they come to your ceremony!
  • – Of course, your guests should also know if the reception will not take place immediately after the ceremony. Let them know how long the break will be and how they can reach the reception venue if it’s not located on the same grounds as your ceremony site or house of worship.

2016 Hot Wedding Trends

2016 is here and with it, we will see a lot of new wedding trends taking over the older ones. Of course, you are more than free to choose whatever you like for your Big Day – but taking a look at some of the 2016 hot wedding trends is definitely a great option if you’re searching for some inspiration.

Following, we have gathered some of the most interesting, beautiful and exciting wedding trends for this year – so read on, find out more and “steal” these ideas for your Big Day too.

  • – Booking the photographer for the entire weekend. If you want not only your wedding day to be beautifully captured in your wedding album, book your photographer for the entire weekend. More and more couples are doing this and we can definitely expect it to be a pretty big trend this year.
  • – Buttercream cakes. While fondant icing is still a great choice, buttercream cakes have a very “homemade” feeling to them – so we’re more than certain to see more of them this year. Delicious and cost-effective, a buttercream-frosted cake will be absolutely loved by everyone at your wedding.
  • – Fresh and wild. Obviously, we will still see a lot of highly decadent and luxurious flower arrangements – but the simpler and “wilder” side of florals are making their way back into the wedding world too. Lovely and refreshing, garden and wild flowers will be a great trend this year – and they will either be arranged in mismatched centerpieces or they will come in tone-on-tone combinations that are sweet, elegant and timeless.

 

Searching for the perfect venue to accommodate all these amazing wedding ideas? Come visit The Mackey House in Savannah, take a look at what we offer and book us for a truly memorable wedding day! You will never regret your choice!
