All about Tent Weddings

When considering using an outdoor tent for your ceremony or reception, there is a list of options to choose from. Many tents today run from simple to palatial. There are bridges and pathways, arched entryways, parquet floors, stained – glass panels and chandeliers. You can also have colored tent that matches your wedding colors. keep in mind that depending on the weather you will need generators for heating or cooling and ceiling fans to keep air circulating.
There is various choices to choose from so keep in mind to have a reputable supplier that know how to measure your tent, that will accommodate your guest and all vendors involved. This is very important and plays a crucial part in your budget. Simply Perkfect Event Boutique works with the best companies and can help you execute your vision while keeping your budget in mind.
In general you will need at least 60×60 or 40×100 tent per 200 people for dancing and dinner. If you want restrooms or plan on having a cocktail hour you will need extra footage. Also consider a generator backup, sound system hook up, permits required by local ordinance and other personal information for tent installation and maintenance.

FYI: Don’t order a tent over the phone, go in person to see what you are paying for.

Below are some photos of beautiful tent weddings… Enjoy!!!

What’s your style on wedding Photography?

Your wedding photographs and video Cd’s are a tangible record of a special time in your life. So it is very important to choose the right person. Each photographer has his or her own distinct style, which reflect the photographer’s Portolio of work. Make sure you seek out those photographers who’s work reflect your style.

Classic: This photographer specialize in expertly composed, well lit portraits. They basically come up with magic moments.

Traditional: A traditional photographer generally treats every image as a posed portrait, even shots you may think is candid.

Photojournalistic or reportage: This particular photographer is one who takes a photojournalistic approach, who considers photos to record events not really stage them.

Commercial: This photographer will perfectly capture shots of the centerpieces, cake, flowers and decor and could be hired just for that at purpose.

Photographic Artist: Similar to a photojournalist, a photographic artist rarely take traditional shots but prefer to find artistic ways to photograph elements.

Below are some beautiful photos…Enjoy!!

All About Contracts

When planning a wedding with or without a wedding planner and designer, you should be expecting to sign a contract with every supplier, from the venue to the stationer to the florist all the way down to the limousine services. Every single detail should be covered in writing in the contract including dates, payment plans, cancellation fees, taxes, gratuities, delivery schedules, refund policy etc. ALWAYS take the time to read every contract thoroughly and if you don’t have an understanding about something ask questions until you do. NEVER sign a contract under pressure. Make sure that you also have a clear understanding on how and when bills are to be paid.

Should I Elope or Nah?

Is eloping for you? So many times in the wedding process, brides and grooms decide they want to elope because of the thousand’s of dollars they will spend in one day. But how important is that ONE day to the both of you? Before you decide to elope, you should carefully consider the pros and cons.

Reasons to Elope
Many couples who elope say that they want to save money. The cost of eloping is less than having a tradition wedding. And they don’t want to deal with the month to month planning. They may also be avoiding family arguments, especially if one partner’s parents disapprove of their choice of spouse, or if a divorced set of parents can’t stand to be in the same room together.

Reasons not to Elope
You’ll be missing out on celebrating with close friends and family and some may be very upset that you didn’t include them. You’ll also be missing out on the chance to fulfill your wedding dreams vision. You might miss the opportunity to reconnect with friends and loved ones who live far away, but would love to come for a wedding. And of course there are the pictures and memories you’ll miss instead of looking back on pictures of yourself in a beautiful setting surrounded by loved ones.
