Savannah Weddings: Mr. and Mrs. Flynn

Guess who was featured in A Military Story this January? You guessed it, The Mackey House! We are very excited and honored for this feature and love it when others are just as enthusiastic about The Mackey House as we are!

The story of Mr. and Mrs. Flynn captivated us from the very beginning which made the day memorable for everyone involved. We simply adore the color palette, which played off the Marine Corps colors beautifully and the bride glowed in her striking gown. The couple’s precious son in a miniature uniform was icing on the cake. Adorable!

We wish the lovely family nothing but happiness for their future. We would like to thank A Military Story for the wonderful feature and Dream Weaver Photos for the stunning pictures.

Five Great Pinterest Finds

With wedding season coming into full swing, brides (and sometimes even grooms!) are looking for any and all tools to help make their big day a unique and memorable one. Luckily, there are blogs, websites and other social media platforms that are dedicated to making planning your wedding easier. One of the most popular, Pinterest, is known for its huge wedding section and has been giving brides great ideas for years. We have highlighted some of our favorite pins to showcase what a great tool it really is.

To help erase the problem of mistaken identity, we found a pin that gives you a chart on how to properly address your wedding or save-the-date invitations. So now, as long as you know their marital status, you’ll know how to title the envelope.

 One of the most important things on a Bride’s mind is how she is going to look in her wedding gown. We stumbled upon a pin that led us to three workouts tailored for Brides to be.

Along with feeling good about your body on your wedding day, another big component of your look is the hair. We found a pin that showed us several up-do ideas that would be perfect for a wedding.

Couples want their weddings to be as unique as possible, which is why incorporating DIY items has become the norm. While there is an array of options, we found a project that is simple and stylish, adding a touch of sparkle to the soles of your bridesmaid’s heels.

Another great way of ensuring a memorable wedding is to really take care of your guests. To make sure they are happy and having a great time can be difficult, especially if you are having a big wedding, but little touches at the ceremony and reception can really make a difference. Pinterest is full of these ideas, and we pulled one of our favorites, games for guests who don’t enjoy dancing the night away.

With inspiration from ideas like these and the many more you can find on Pinterest, you’ll have no problem making that big special day uniquely yours.

Fun and Creative Guest Book Ideas

As you’re surely beginning to realize as you plan your Big Day, weddings are a time for friends and family to come together in celebration.

Couples use their Big Day as a way to highlight their own personality and creativity. For years, brides and grooms have searched high and low for those special little details that will make their wedding the talk of the town. From colorful wedding gowns, belly dancers, unique themes, to destination nuptials, not only do they put their heart and soul into the relationship, but also into the wedding.

One small detail that can really create a huge impact in creativity is the guest book.  A traditional guest book is always beautiful and elegant, but if you are looking to bring something exclusive to your wedding, an imaginative guest book is a sure thing.

To help get your imagination flowing, our wedding experts are here to give a few fashionable examples of fun and creative guest books.

Jenga

If you are thinking about the popular game then you are correct! This guest book is simple and easy on the budget. You simply purchase the game and have each of your guests sign a separate block.

Globe

Globes are not only beautiful and elegant, but they are educational. You merely buy a globe and supply your guest with a Sharpie. This is a wonderful idea for destination weddings.

River Rocks

This is a simple and easy way to display your guest book in your home. The bride can either collect or purchase smooth rocks. At the wedding choose any color Sharpie that suites you and have the guest sign their names onto the stones. Afterwards, just place them into a glass container and enjoy!

Polaroid

This is a fun and intimate way to encourage your guest’s creativity. The guests take a Polaroid picture of themselves, then sign below. Later, you can create a scrapbook containing all the pictures and signatures taken by your guest.

We wish your wedding and life together all the happiness in the world. Remember, be open with your creativity and no matter the outcome, it will be the most spectacular day of your life!
