With This Tattoo, I Thee Wed

With this Tattoo, I Thee Wed

by Cheri Pope, Pensacola Beach Weddings Info & Forever I Do Weddings & Special Events Inc.

One of the growing trends in the wedding world is a wedding ring tattoo, something that we are seeing more and more of each year – last year 23 of our #PensacolaBeachWeddings involved ring tattoos.

With this ring I thee wed3

Some couples have concluded that, for better or for worse, there’s no better way to celebrate their love for one another than showcasing it on their ring finger with a tattoo.

If you don’t want a traditional wedding ring, you may be a candidate for a ring tattoo.  There are plenty of variants – your wedding date with roman numbers or regular numbers, initials or the name of your spouse, hearts or symbols that mean something special for you as a couple.   Just remember, ink + marriage = forever.

If you want to have traditional rings but want something different for the actual ceremony, consider a henna ring tattoo .

Tipping & Feeding Your Vendors

Tipping & Feeding Your Vendors

by Cheri Pope, Pensacola Beach Weddings Info  and  Forever I Do Weddings & Special Events


Our rule of thumb is:  you tip vendors who offer you a service, not a product. For example, the vendor who created your invitations wouldn’t necessarily deserve a tip. Now, if you think that the invitation made your wedding beyond amazing, over the top, by all means give them a tip, however, it’s certainly not expected. The vendors you should tip are the  ones who are working their butts off to make your day perfect – planner/coordinator, photographer, videographer, band, DJ, etc.

Tipping is gracious and it’s kind, however, it’s up to you whether you tip or not.  I tell my clients if there’s a vendor at your wedding or reception that you believe deserves a tip, you should give them one. If there’s a vendor that you feel would normally get a tip, but they didn’t earn it, you’re not obligated to give it.

My clients do not deal with the financial aspect of their wedding on their big day; all tips are put into envelopes and given to my coordinators to distribute at the end of the evening or when that vendor’s service has ended. If you have hired a wedding planner she/he should offer to do this, if they don’t then ask them to.


On the night of your reception, feeding your vendors is a pretty key factor. There are several vendors that work many hours throughout your day and night and they have very little opportunity to take a break because they are busy making your big day vision come true. I know personally, as a planner/coordinator, it’s rare that I ever stop to sit down at any point during a wedding or reception. Many vendors indicate in their contract that you are required to give them a meal, my contract certainly does, not only for myself (your wedding planner/coordinator) but also for the other vendors present. These people are  your “wedding team”, the photographers, videographer, band, DJ, etc., and feeding them is simply a matter of treating them with respect.

You don’t want any vendors missing key moments in your evening so it’s crucial that you have very well-built timeline, one that let’s your vendors know when it’s safe to sneak off and grab a quick bite . If you’re working with a planner, this is one invaluable service they provide.

Do not fall into the trap of thinking that your vendors should eat exactly what you and your guests are eating; it’s not necessarily quicker and easier for the chef and, because the vendor meal service inevitably  gets pushed back to after guest meal service ( because your guests always come first) this causes complications with your timeline.  When the meal is over, people get up and start dancing so (1) your entertainment needs to be performing, (2) your photographer needs to be snapping photos, (3) your videographer needs to be videoing… get the idea.  What ends up happening is your “wedding team” goes without eating because there’s no time.

So, when you send in your final guest count to your caterer or wedding planner, be sure to include the meals for your vendors and coordinate with your wedding planner a time that they can take a break and eat. This is a really fun and exciting time for you so, in order to make everything as awesome as possible, remember to take care of the vendors that are working so hard to take care of you.

5 Beautiful Braided Hairstyles for Your Wedding

5 Beautiful Braided Hairstyles for Your Wedding

After carefully selecting a wedding dress and veil, what becomes the focus for most brides when deciding how she wants to look on her wedding day? Her hair, of course! A wedding hairstyle has to go with the dress, be practical for the venue, and reflect the bride’s style.

If you have been following bridal trends the past few years, you’ll know that braids have come back in a big way, and they show no sign of slowing down. Braids are always an elegant way to add detail to any bridal hairstyle and make a great addition to any wedding-day look. From prim and polished to beachy and bohemian, braids can be used to complement the personality of every bride.

The below braided looks are all worn by real brides from real weddings:

1. Chignon-Framing Braid

2. Braided Bun

This secure hairstyle is likely to look as fresh at the end of the night as it does when you walk down the aisle. Photo by Marisa Holmes

3. Braided Crown

The best part is that this look is both fashionable and functional, as the braid can double as support for a veil. This style is relaxed enough for a beach wedding, but also pretty enough for a traditional church wedding. Photo by Kristen Weaver Photography

4. Braided Headband

Achieve a polished look without the updo by tightly braiding a small strand of hair into a headband. While this bride chose to pair her braided headband with a 1960s style bouffant, the look is versatile enough for just about every hairstyle, including those for brides with shorter hair. Photo by John Solano Photography

5. Long and Loose

Many brides want to look like a princess on their wedding day, but that doesn’t have to mean the traditional Cinderella look is the only way to go. Channel a modern Disney princess with a long and loose braid, à la Rapunzel and Elsa. This hairstyle works best for brides with long hair, but don’t fret if your tresses don’t meet the length requirement – that’s what extensions are for!
