Friday Favorites :: Bridal Beach Bag { Savannah Wedding Planner }

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you had a good week and have an even greater weekend coming up! With Summer officially being here and the weather getting a bit warmer {ok, A LOT warmer} we thought it only fitting to share with you our favorite beach bag essentials in this round of Friday Favorites.

 1. Kate Spade Daycation Bon Shopper – Make sure to carry all the essentials in a fun, cheery inspired tote like this flamingo tote bag.

{and let’s be real Kate Spade already makes our hearts go pitter patter}.

 2. Monogram Tumbler– In this Summer heat it is so important to hydrate so make sure you have a cute container to hold your fluids.  Headed to the beach with a group?  Personalize the containers to keep the beverages straight.

{For a refreshing thirst quencher we suggest water with some of your favorite fruits like lemon or cucumber + mint!}

 3. Beach Hat– Make sure to cover up and protect from the blazing sun!

We adore this floppy option with cheeky “Here Comes the Sun” saying.

4. Sunglasses– Be sure to protect your peepers…We are smitten over this rose gold option!

Turkish Beach Towel

5. Beach Towel– When you stake your claim to your piece of sand make sure you make a statement with these Turkish inspired beach towels.

 6. Summer Reading– Long gone are the days of reading books over the Summer for school.  We recommend diving into some inspirational wedding magazines to keep up on the latest in wedding styles and trends.  Above are just a few of our favorites!

Friday Faves :: Swoon-Worthy Arrangements Perfect For VDay { Savannah Wedding Planner }
Good morning, everyone!
First, we want to thank all of our amazing fellow vendors in the Savannah Wedding Industry who came out to our collaboration with Soho South Café last night. We had so much fun putting it all together and could not have been more happy with the turnout! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you – we can’t wait to see Soho South Café evolve as a premier venue in Savannah.
But on to our main topic of the day: FLOWERS. If there’s one thing we love more than a bouquet of beautiful blooms, it’s when those blooms are in the prettiest shades of pink and either arranged in a fancy vessel or tied with luxe ribbon. Following are some of our absolute favorites meeting that criteria.  As always, don’t forget to click on the images so you can drool over all the extra gorgeousness of the original post with full vendor credits. Enjoy!

Friday Faves :: Bridal Hair { Savannah Wedding Planner }
Good morning, ladies and gents!
So you’ve chosen your dream dress, but have you thought about your hair? Our only advice as residents of the lovely South is to plan on wearing your hair up if you are getting married in the area between the months of March and November to avoid the inevitable havoc the intense humidity here tends to wreak on hair.
Whether you want something loose and romantic or bold and modern, our current favorite inspiration images have a little bit of something for everyone.  Enjoy and as always, click the image to get to the original post!
