Wedding Planning Tips

The Hot Lake Tahoe Wedding Theme for 2015: Gatsby

Gatsby is all about glitz, glam and grandeur and an easy theme to use for your Lake Tahoe wedding, especially when you choose a venue that can easily be transformed into West Egg on Long Island in 1922.

Gatsby Weddings in Lake Tahoe

Megan and Kevin are planning a Gatsby Wedding at our historic estate venue in May of 2015 and it’s going to be simply beautiful. Megan’s cream colored dress with pearls will be matched with Kevin’s three-piece suit and hat. They have chosen a great venue too since it was built before the roaring-20s for the rich society of San Francisco.

LAKEFRONT-WEDDING-GATSBY

 

Even if you’re not getting married at a Historic Estate we still have many venues that could pull off a Gatsby themed wedding in Lake Tahoe. If you don’t have the old building surrounding you there are many decorations that can make an outdoor tent or the beach seem perfectly Gatsby!

We turned to pinterest to get some ideas for Gatsby weddings and there are some fabulous ones! You can add white feathers, beads and pearls to almost anything and get a Gatsby look. Black and White are usually to “go to” colors and anything sparkly and over the top decadent (and of course, champagne!).

This theme is fun and can be played up as little, or as much, as you want. You can even state on your very Gatsby like invitations what the theme is and that attire from the Roaring 20’s is appropriate. Reception table decor, welcome signs and dance music can really top it all off.

It’s All About That Font

The font you use is key for your invitations, signage and anything else you have printed like napkins and programs. “Deco Pinstripe” is Gatsby but not everyone has that available to use, but no fear, there are plenty of art deco fonts.  We used “Broadway” font on our picture collage above but there are many choices available on free font download sites.

Arriving in Lake Tahoe for your wedding: Now what?

bonfireThe big weekend is here and you just arrived in Lake Tahoe for your wedding. The most important items are all accounted for and nothing was left behind. You can check into your room, unpack and let out a sign of relief. However, the wedding is a few days away and guests have not yet arrived, so now what do you do? Here are some things to check off the list before kicking your feet up and letting your coordinators take over.

Confirm the details with your wedding planner

Schedule a meeting with your coordinator ahead of time. Ask if you need to include any of the vendors in on the meeting and get an update on where everyone is at. Use this time to confirm any last minute details on the timeline of events. Discuss back up plans in the event that there is a storm or bad weather forecasted. Make sure the officiant has copies of the vows and the readings and do a final walk through of the property so you can get another look at the ceremony and reception location.

Wardrobe Prep

Get your wedding wardrobe out to steam and hang. After travel, there is a chance that items could be wrinkled, even if you carried on. Also organize the day of accessories from the tie and cufflinks to the something old and something blue.  If you are having your makeup and hair professionally done, schedule a run through.

Extra Event Organization

Typically destination weddings in Lake Tahoe have a few other events in addition to the wedding ceremony and reception, like a welcome party and post wedding brunch. Confirm these details with the restaurants and venues of choice to ensure they are all ready for your crew. If you created welcome bags for your attendants and guests, assemble them and have them distributed to the appropriate rooms.

Relax and let your Lake Front Wedding and Events Coordinator take care of the rest!

Once any extra details aside from what your Lake Tahoe wedding coordinator is handling has been confirmed, enjoy yourself! This is why you hired a coordinator, so you can enjoy your big weekend and let someone else handle the details. Focus on spending time with your special guy and all your loved ones. If you have a couple of days before the guests arrive, treat yourself to a spa experience, take a yoga or pilates class or schedule one of the many different Lake Tahoe tours. The final night before the guests arrive, plan a romantic dinner and unwind with your beau. Relaxed and rested, you can greet all your guests and let the festivities begin!

Packing for your Lake Tahoe Destination Wedding

packYour Lake Tahoe wedding is but a few short weeks away and if keeping track of all the details wasn’t enough, now you have to think about packing up all those details. Making sure you don’t forget something important on the biggest day of your life is overwhelming. Worry not, sweet brides, as destination weddings in Lake Tahoe is what we do! Here are some helpful hints to make sure you don’t forget anything before your travels.

Lake Tahoe Destination Wedding

Before we get started, one helpful hint for packing is using the list of events from your Lake Front wedding and events coordinator. Using your wedding agenda as a guide also serves as a guide for packing. For example, you will need an outfit for the welcome dinner, as will your groom. Pack up the outfits you need for the big events first and then pack your downtime clothing needs based on the season in which you are getting married.

Carry On

For the most part, checking a bag and having less to deal with at the airport is a desirable way to travel. However, in the case of getting married in Lake Tahoe, we suggest carrying on the wedding dress and tux, and rings and well anything of major value that could possibly ruin your wedding day in the chance that it goes missing in transit. Let your bridal party know that they should do the same. Be sure to alert the agent at the gate that you are bringing your wedding attire on board and ask for any necessary assistance. The flight attendant on board should be able to help you properly store the items during the flight.

Send Ahead

If your wedding in Lake Tahoe is small and intimate, packing a few wedding favors or programs in the checked bags is fine. However, we suggest sending some of these items before your arrival. A few weeks before your wedding, create a package specifically for the purpose of important items needed during the ceremony and reception. Address the parcel to your Lake front wedding and events coordinator and let them know this package is on its way.

Inspector Gadget

Technology is a part of our everyday life and a missing charger or cord can really put a damper on things. While our venues and vendors have all the necessary items for mics, wireless internet, etc. anything extra you must have (like the GoPro or the snazzy new Nikon camera you got as gift) should be noted on a list ahead of time. Also consider labeling your phone and tablets and put all charger cords in a Ziploc bag so you don’t leave them behind.

Additional helpful hints

If you are traveling from out of the country, make sure your passport, visa and other important travel documents are packed first in an exterior pocket of your suitcase. This way, you know you won’t leave the house without them and you can easily grab them before checking your luggage and transfer to your personal carry-on items. Be sure to pack an extra formal outfit for you and your guy. With all the casinos having at least one 5 star restaurant on the property, you will want to have something unique to your rehearsal outfit and wedding wardrobe. Put all of your medications, sunscreens, aspirin and toiletries in a small travel case as well. In the days leading up to the departure we are also a big believer in designating a spot in the house where all your packed goods will be stored. This way, on the day of travel, you aren’t running all over the house looking for random items. And of course, as Lake Tahoe wedding coordinators, we are a big fan of lists. So making a packing list ahead of time will really help you stay on track and not forget anything.

As always, if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, be sure to contact your coordinator at Lake Front Wedding and Events.

Lake Tahoe Destination Wedding Etiquette Part 2: Invites and Gifts

wedding-group-web__largeWedding etiquette is a hot topic, throw in that it is a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe and you have opened up a whole new can of worms.  Getting married is like having a baby. Once you make the announcement, the unsolicited ideas, rules and advice just come pouring in. The old fashioned rules on what is and is not ok when planning a wedding have changed with today’s modern lifestyles, making following the correct wedding etiquette tough.  Especially when the wedding being planned is located miles away, requiring everyone to travel. If you have had questions on the “who, what, where, when and why’s” of a Lake Tahoe wedding, read on as we tackle the tough topics of all thing destination nuptials!

When should the save the date announcements be sent out?

Since a Lake Tahoe destination wedding takes more travel planning compared to a local wedding, 9-12 months is preferable. If your wedding is happening sooner than that and it isn’t a possibility, send the save the dates the minute the details are confirmed. Be sure to include information on the destination so guests can not only begin to plan, but get a bit of an idea of the area if they have never heard of it before.

When should the formal invites be sent out?

The average lead time on the formal invites is roughly 2 months, give or take a couple weeks, prior to the event. Since destination weddings take a bit more time to plan, 3 months prior is the standard time frame at the very max. As destination weddings usually involve multiple events, we encourage the use of an additional card inviting guests to other events during the wedding weekend. Whether it is golfing, hiking or a day trip to one of the lovely Lake Tahoe beaches, you can keep track of who is going to what event. This also allows guests to plan their mini vaca around the wedding festivities so they can get the most bang for their buck.

Do couples have to provide welcome gifts for guests?

While this is not something that has to be done, it is such a nice thing to have something waiting for your guests when they arrive after a long journey. Lake Front Wedding & Events has access to several vendors that can put together an elaborate gift baskets or even just a tray of fresh baked cookies or a bottle of wine. Great feedback we have received from wedding guests is making sure the gift can either be enjoyed during the stay in Lake Tahoe or making sure it is a suitcase friendly item that is easy to pack.

Speaking of gift giving, what is the etiquette for destination wedding gifts?

Well, as no one wants to pack kitchen counter appliances back from their Lake Tahoe wedding, sending gifts directly to one’s home address as directed on the bridal shower invitation is probably the best way to tackle this one. Although, several destination wedding experts will suggest that a fabulous way to thank a guest for joining in on the “big day that is far away” is present enough.  Most likely, you will still receive a gift, it may just be smaller.

If a guest attends a post wedding reception at home, but not the destination ceremony itself, are they required to bring a gift?

One invitation typically equals one wedding gift, regardless of whether or not the guest is able to attend the destination ceremony. A belated reception does not mean that people must bring gifts. While many will want to, it is not required and should not be planned with the expectation that you will receive the extras on your registry. The purpose is to celebrate your life together as a couple with those that could not make the wedding away for various reasons.

How do you pull off an adult only Lake Tahoe wedding?

This one is so tricky for multiple reasons. Lining up a sitter for one night can be difficult, throw in multiple days and travel plans could become more complicated than necessary. Not to mention the additional cost the guests have to consider when paying the child care provider. Thankfully there are a few ways to handle this scenario. The rule that only the names on the invite should show up to the event still applies to destination weddings. Aka: If children’s names are not on the invitation, they are not invited. If you have a guest or two that won’t understand this, a simple phone call will suffice. After all, stating on the invite that this is an adult only event is generally frowned upon. On the day the invites go out, call the guests with children and let them know they will receive their invite in the mail soon and that as much as your love their little munchkins, children are not invited and you want to give them ample time to plan accordingly. In the off chance that someone still RSVP’s with the kiddos, pick up the phone to call and apologize for any confusion and let them know that you are only able to accommodate adults. If your tone is apologetic, they will be able to hear it and know that it is nothing against children. This is one conversation that should not be handled by text or email.

If you have further questions on your Lake Tahoe wedding, be sure to ask our coordinators. They not only specialize in this topic, but can provide alternatives that better fit you and your guests.

Destination Wedding Etiquette Part 1: Who pays for what and what is provided

weddings in lake tahoeWedding etiquette is a hot topic, throw in that it is a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe and you have opened up a whole new can of worms.  Getting married is like having a baby. Once you make the announcement, the unsolicited ideas, rules and advice just come pouring in. The old fashioned rules on what is and is not ok when planning a wedding have changed with today’s modern lifestyles, making following the correct wedding etiquette tough.  Especially when the wedding being planned is located miles away, requiring everyone to travel. If you have had questions on the “who, what, where, when and why’s” of a Lake Tahoe wedding, read on as we tackle the tough topics of all thing destination nuptials!

What do the Bride and Groom actually have to pay for?

Truly, the couple is only required to pay for the ceremony and reception, which covers food, drinks, entertainment and decor. As destination weddings are usually spread out over a couple of days, the bride and groom will often host a few additional meals, such as the welcome dinner or farewell lunch. While some people beg to differ, guests are responsible for the cost of travel and arrangements that come with it.

Can a couple pay for the travel expenses of a guest that is experiencing financial hardship?

When a bride and groom decide to go with a destination wedding, they know not everyone is going to be able to join them. Whether because of work, finances or previous plans on the date of the Lake Tahoe wedding, the couple knows this going in that their whole entire guest list may not be able to travel. If they have a guest they want in attendance, even though the guest cannot afford it, it is ok if they choose to foot the bill for some guests travel expenses and not others.

Does the couple HAVE to host several different pre and post wedding events and who should be invited?

While various bride and groom hosted activities aren’t necessary, they are appreciated. Keep in mind, all of your Lake Tahoe wedding guests will have taken time off work and will most likely have spent a considerable amount of money to be with you on your big day. It really is good form to host at the very least a welcome and/or goodbye party. There also isn’t a set rule that says everyone has to be invited, but because everyone is going out of their way to join, it doesn’t make sense to exclude anyone from the wedding festivities either.  If budget is a concern, book the bare minimum, like an affordable beach day. Guests will probably enjoy exploring on their own a little bit too so don’t worry about feeling like you need to keep everyone busy and pay for everybody’s meals.

Who pays for the wedding attendants?

The answer to this one is a mixed bag. Most will tell you that the wedding party is responsible for their formal wear, accessories, grooming appointments, travel, lodging  and all food and drink aside from wedding events. However, there is a way to find a happy medium to make this work. In lieu of a thank you gift, offer to pay for the wedding prep spa treatments, a portion of the hotel costs or the formal wear. We have seen brides and grooms pay for some of these costs to ease the additional cost of travel. Really, you can pay for as little or as much as you want with this.

If you have further questions on similar topics, feel free to ask our coordinators as this is an area they are well versed in. We will also be tackling more Lake Tahoe destination wedding etiquette in upcoming blogs so stayed tuned!

Top 5 Winter Wedding Locations in Lake Tahoe

Sleigh Ride Weddings

How romantic, a wedding after your horse drawn sleigh takes you to a secret spot in the woods for your ceremony.  You need snow for this, of course, but can you imagine the glistening white snow along the meadow and the horses take you to a quiet spot to say “I do” and then a fun sleigh back as a married couple! Our sleigh ride wedding package is for 2 to 20 people.

Heavenly Gondola Weddings

The Heavenly Mountain Resort gondola takes you and your guests up the mountain to an observation deck with 360 degrees of views of the lake and mountains.  This deck is a great place for pictures! Your wedding is at the next gondola stop on a snow covered bluff above Lake Tahoe. This is a great wedding ceremony location for just the two of you or for a group up to 20.

The Hottest Lake Tahoe Winter Wedding Trends

lake-front-wedding-winter-coupleWinter is almost here and if you have been planning a Lake Tahoe Winter Wedding, read on as we navigate through the latest trends for this seasons cold weather weddings!

Winter Wedding Color Trends

We covered Fall’s Top 10 Pantone Colors for weddings, and thankfully this still holds true for winter. However, so many people pick a red and white or blue and silver color theme for their winter weddings and we are here to tell you it is ok to spice it up this season. In fact, one of the hottest trends is using oranges, berry hues and earthy green color combos. Our personal favorite is gold, sangria and a burst of cypress green.

Winter Floral Trends

Is there anything more dramatic and romantic than winter floral arrangements? While we love flowers of all kinds, we have found that putting together a bouquet during this time of year can be such an exciting process. Almost anything goes truly-from the lavish cascading bouquet bursting with frost white roses to the rustic mix of burgundy flowers with pinecones, berries and succulents.  Try using flowers in the Top 10 Pantone color shades, mix with seasonal foliage and berries, wrap with burlap (huge for winter!) and voila! You have yourself a trend setting, winter wedding bouquet. Create mini version of your bouquet for the bridal parties or the table settings. Interested in a non floral wedding bouquet? We have you covered there too with our latest blog on how to make this work for your Lake Tahoe wedding.

Winter Wedding Décor

Winter weddings are all about snowy cozy romance. Think about it-When it is a blizzard outside, people look forward to gathering with cozy blankets, a hot drink, lighting some candles and relaxing in the comfort of their own home with their nearest and dearest. Winter weddings in Lake Tahoe give you the same chance but with ALL your favorite people in one spot celebrating YOUR love! Our favorite decor trends for I Do’s during this season are lots of candles, white lights, unique ornaments and once again-using the natural seasonal foliage from our beautiful surroundings and of course, blankets.

Winter Wedding Desserts & Drinks

We all see how excited people get when a certain red cup from a major coffee chain comes out and all the seasonal drinks that come with it. Pumpkin spice, gingerbread, peppermint chocolate….really there is a winter flavor combo for everyone, so incorporate those into your winter wedding. Have a hot cocoa bar with a variety of marshmallows and flavored syrups for the kids, and throw in some Schnapps and Baileys for the adults. Mini’s pies, donuts and cupcakes in flavors such as pumpkin spice with salted caramel frosting or  crème brulee with cranberry champagne frosting will keep guests, and their taste buds, thoroughly excited. There are so many ways to capitalize on the winter favorites and be unique at the same time.

 Winter Wedding Food Trends

Sourcing your ingredients locally and organically is how the top chefs are dictating their restaurant menus. Take a page from their book and see what is in season. Whether you are having a full on dinner reception or a cocktail hour before cutting the cake, you can have a lot of fun with the food menu. If you are serving a full dinner, consider doing a twist on the traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu. Take the classics, but see what is in season and find a way to incorporate those flavors. For a cocktail hour appetizer menu, think of your favorite holiday party bites and go from there. The always popular bacon wrapped figs, baked cheeses and butternut squash soup shooters are a good starting point.

Ask anyone of our coordinators and they will probably tell you that our all-time favorite trend for a winter wedding in Lake Tahoe is incorporating classic holiday traditions into the event itself. We will be covering a few more unique winter wedding ideas in upcoming blogs-so stay tuned!

Non Floral Winter Wedding Bouquets

 Looking to do something different for your winter wedding bouquet? We have a few ideas that might pique your interest. We love all types of bouquets, but with winter comes some out of the box trends that we are absolutely in love with for Lake Tahoe weddings right now. Non Floral wedding bouquets happen to be one of them.  These are perfect for the brides that want to use their bouquet as a keepsake for long after the wedding day is over.

Winter Wedding bouquets with Ornaments

Yes…..Christmas ornaments. Not only is this trend something you don’t see a lot of brides doing just yet, but you can flawlessly custom match your bouquet to your wedding colors. When done properly, you might be inspired to incorporate this into your holiday home décor. Which leads us to the best part-when you don’t want to carry your bouquet around, you don’t have to worry about it getting ruined and it blends in with the wedding décor. Photo via Pinterest.

Pine cone bouquets

This is a fun one thanks to the plethora of pine cones found in all sizes throughout Lake Tahoe. You can do a simple bouquet with just natural pinecones or you can get your Martha Stewart on and really create a master piece worthy of a magazine cover.  You can paint, bedazzle, add in berries, twigs, succulents, buttons, fabric flowers, the list is pretty endless. Whether you want a winter wonderland theme or a cozy, rustic chic event-the pine cone bouquet can lend itself to any style of wedding. Photo Credit via Pinterest.

Jewelry bouquets

We have all seen (and fallen madly in love with) the broach bouquet. These ones are stunning, luxurious and sentimental all in one. We love them as a non-floral bouquet, especially for a winter wedding in Lake Tahoe. However, there are a couple new ones we adore on the scene, and think you will too. Crystals, Pearls and Beads, on their own, or mixed together make a fabulous, breath taking bouquet. Like the ornament bouquet, it can be set aside to blend in with the décor when you want to dance, eat and mingle with your guests. This is another one that can be displayed in your home as a reminder of your special day, whether on your vanity or fireplace mantel. Photo via Pinterest.

Fabric bouquets

This one is great for year round weddings of all kinds. Considered luxurious, romantic, vintage chic and glamorous, this is our first go to for brides requesting a non-floral bouquet. What we loved about this one is you can add lace, buttons, bows, broaches and more. Really-you can incorporate all of the above non floral options into this style of bouquet. A favorite from our Gypsy Glam brides are feathers and if there is one combo we adore-it is fabric and feathers. Photo via Pinterest.

Other non-floral bouquets to consider are origami, felt or paper flowers. If this is something you have considered as an option for your Lake Tahoe wedding, we are here to tell you the list of possibilities are endless. In addition to being a great keepsake, it is also a very unique way of incorporating you and your beau’s personalities. Have questions about how to achieve this look? Contact our wedding coordinators on how to make the non floral bouquet happen for your Lake Tahoe wedding.

Why You Shouldn’t Rent a Lake Tahoe House for Your Wedding Ceremony

weddings in lake tahoeIt is tempting.  Your own rented lakefront or waterfront home in Lake Tahoe to have your wedding, with fabulous views from every corner.  The problem is, city ordinances do not allow commercial activities such as weddings in licensed vacation home properties.  Large parties and receptions are forbidden as well.

South Lake Tahoe Vacation Home Ordinance

In order to control the number of complaints that the police department received from weddings and receptions held in South Lake Tahoe homes, especially those in the Tahoe Keys, an ordinance and licensing procedure was created. The ordinance controls the number of people who can stay overnight (2 per bedroom plus 4) as well as the number of cars that can be parked outside (depends on the size of the home). It also forbids receptions, large parties and weddings.

Of course, people try, but can you think of anything worse than having your wedding shut down by the police right in the middle of the biggest day of your life?

Lake Front Wedding’s Lakefront Wedding Venues

We have solved the problem! We have a fabulous array of Lake Tahoe wedding venues to choose from, from the beach to a park and luxury locations.  You can leave the worry to our talented wedding coordinators and have them plan a magical Lake Tahoe wedding for you.

Disney Wedding Gowns and Themes for Your Lake Tahoe Wedding

Let’s face it, there is a Disney princess hiding inside you, waiting to get out!  As little girls we had our fairy tales with their princes and princesses and love stories that unfolded before our young eyes.  We saw Ariel and Eric, Aurora and Phillip as well as Cinderella and Prince Charming, as they meet, fall in love and live happily ever after.  Because of this we have seen romantic weddings based on the Disney princess stories.

Disney Wedding Gowns

Every year, designer Alfred Angelo comes out with his line of Disney Wedding dresses. They are each based the different princesses and here are this year’s designs:

These are just the wedding gowns…wait til you see the bridesmaid dresses!

How to add a touch of Disney to your Lake Tahoe wedding

Don’t have a pumpkin chariot or castle? Don’t want to go too overboard on the Disney theme but want to add touches (both subtle and not)? There are many ways you can do this (though we do have some Lake Tahoe wedding venues that can be your castle!). We turned to pinterest for some ideas to share.
