What advice would you give a couple trying to decide whether hiring a wedding planner is within their means?

Naturally, we are great proponents of hiring a wedding planner to reduce stress on the couple and their family when it comes to planning the wedding. Are you concerned that hiring a planner would break the bank? One of the most widespread misunderstandings about using a wedding planner is this one. Many people believe that hiring a wedding planner will raise the stakes and increase the cost of the big day. It turns out that the situation is reversed: a wedding planner will frequently help keep things under control and ensure that you get the most for your money. It's my responsibility to manage your budget, negotiate prices, and assist you with important financial decisions.

With the aid of a wedding planner, we can help keep you and your partner accountable when it comes to your budget.

Next, calculate how much your peace of mind is worth. - Realizing that a professional, not a friend or family member, is handling the money you are spending on your wedding. The couple's entire vision may be ruined if they choose someone who is easily distracted or does not completely get the mechanics of all the vendors working together as a team.

Last but not least, a wedding planner might not always concur with you, but that's only because they want to make sure you're choosing the ideal things for your special day. Naturally, a good planner will endeavor to realize your dreams. However, it is the planner's duty to intervene if you are making an impulsive decision or a decision that may lead to logistical problems in the future. A planner is essentially your voice of reason. And frequently aids in resolving a disagreement when weighing the advantages and disadvantages.

Tips & Tricks | Expert Advice on ordering wedding cake

How much cake should I order for my wedding? Submitted by: Laura Talbot, of Ms. Laura’s Cakes Though it certainly seems like a simple question, it’s not as “cut & dry” as you may think.  We actually need to discuss several more questions before we can answer this one. During the wedding planning process you will often hear the question, “How many guests are you planning on having at your wedding?”. Well, if you’re like most, you may not really know exactly how many there will be for sure. What you do know is: you’ve got a lot of people on your list, your future spouse’s list, and your parents’ list.  But, how many guests will actually attend your wedding?  How do you plan for food?  How many servings of cake will you need?  Well, I can certainly help you with that and I truly want to help you figure out how to have enough cake for everyone without having tiers & tears leftover after the wedding. Wedding Guest List? First, lets narrow down your lists. The best advice I can give you is from my own personal experience and that is to go over the list by considering the following thoughts: Consider how many guests are from out of state.  If you think they will not attend then just send them an invitation, but mark them off of your food and cake list. Regarding the guests who are in state, go through and mark off the ones you are pretty sure won’t attend. But, be sure to send them an invite regardless of their expected attendance because, trust me, no one wants to be left out or forgotten. Will your wedding take place in the evening or early afternoon? This question is important! If it’s in the evening of the fall and winter months, it gets dark earlier. Some of your older guests (who may not like to drive after dark) and parents of little ones (who have early bed times) won’t be able to wait around till 9pm or later for you to cut the cake. On the other hand, if your wedding is in the afternoon, say 2 o’clock, your guests usually only expect cake and punch to be served. So, you will want to be sure you have enough cake to feed everyone for the entirety of the event. Next, a question you may have is, “How big is a serving of cake, actually?”.  My cake serving size guide is the Wilton standard, which is a  1″ X 2″ slice.  Your cake is on average 4″ thick, though sometimes a little thicker on request, but never less than 4″. Reception Guest List? So, now that you have an idea of how many guests you think will attend your wedding, here are few more questions for you to consider about the reception: How many guests do you plan on having at the reception? Some couples have a private ceremony, where only a select few are invited, but everyone else is invited to the reception. So, they are gonna need some cake, right? Are you planning to serve alcohol? If you are, then you should only plan to serve cake for two thirds of your guests. Why is this? Typically, most guys are not big sweets eaters anyway and, if they drink beer, they rarely eat cake.  Some of the ladies will opt to consume the calories of an alcoholic beverage over eating cake. Other guests, partaking in alcohol consumption, will often be so busy visiting and partying that they won’t remember there is cake. Are you planning to have a groom’s cake?  If so, then plan to serve approximately 50 servings of his cake. However, if the groom is wanting to showcase something fun and  3-dimensional, such as a 3-D football helmet or any other sculpted cake, you may need to accommodate for the popularity response and plan to reserve more than 50 servings for his cake. Unless you are planning to provide any additional desserts, sweets, or treats for your guests, you should now be able to figure out how many servings are needed for the wedding cake. Need an example? Okay, lets say you are planning to have 200 guests at your wedding and you are also serving beer and wine. While you definitely want to plan food for everyone, you really only need to serve cake for about 150 of your guests. Cake Shapes? Now to decide what shape you would like: round, square, heart, petal, hex, etc… Obviously, the most common are round or square, but there are some unique shapes that affect your overall slice count.  For example, square cakes serve more per tier than a round cakes. Cake Layers? When you envision your dream wedding cake, you may picture a taller and far more grand design than you actually need, but that’s okay too. Let me explain how each tier adds more servings. Let’s consider a round cake that needs to serve 100 slices. You could do any of the following to achieve that desired number:  3 tier, round serving 74  3 tier, round serving 106  3 tier, round serving 125  4 tier, round serving 130 Get the idea?  Pair your wedding cake with the groom’s cake and you will have close to 150 servings of cake total. Take my previous suggestions into consideration and plan accordingly, I guarantee that my concept works pretty well.  Sure, you may run out of cake or perhaps you may have just a bit left over. The question to ask yourself is, “would I rather run out of cake or have extra cake, just in case?”. Now, if you want your cake to look bigger or are just really wanting extra cake, GREAT!  I am happy to add to the brides cake by adding a “faux” layer (for the same price) or by beefing up the size of the groom cake.  You can even opt to add a “kitchen” cake. That is a plain, frosted sheet cake that stays in the kitchen or goes under the cake table to provide extra servings if you should you need them.  That way, if you serve all of the bride and groom cakes and end up not serving the kitchen cake, you will have an un-cut cake to enjoy the next day with family who may be in town for the wedding. I truly hope this information helps you to determine how much cake you will need for your wedding day. I am always happy to serve you and glad to answer any specific questions you may have regarding cakes, food, and treats!  Confectionately honored to be your baker, Laura Talbot, owner of Ms. Laura’s Cakes

Tips and Tricks | Wedding Budget

By tulsaweddingsociety_ytd3jh | April 28, 2017

What better person to get advice regarding your wedding day budget than Sharon Holm with Tulsa Weddings & Design? She has over 10 years of experience and prides herself on the ability to understand her clients, identifying their specific needs and goals, and deliver a luxurious event in a professional and stylish manner. See what she has to say about budgeting below! No matter what your wedding budget is, odds are it’s more than you’ll ever spend on a single event or party and we all want to make every cent count, right? You can ask nearly anyone in the event industry and they will tell you that just because you spent $20K there is no guarantee your event will look elegant, cohesive or have any personality or style. By now most brides’ glam squads, Mothers and MILs all have Pinterest boards of what YOUR wedding should look like. But the real question is, “how do I add VALUE?” Celebrities know! They almost all hire a stylist to dress them for any red carpet event. You would also hire an interior decorator or designer if you wanted to make your dream home look amazing. Again, it’s about adding value to an event and not just dollars. Here’s the secret to making the most of your budget. Take this quiz with your partner and rate the following in order of importance (1 being the most important to you and 10 being the least). ___Food ___Liquor ___Apparel ___Aesthetics/Appearance (flowers, decorations, centerpieces, ambiance) ___Music/Entertainment ___Convenience ___Spirituality ___Photography ___Family and Friends Attending ___ Invitations/Save the Dates Now you can determine how to allocate your budget based on your priorities as individuals and as a couple. Here are a few examples of adding value to your event. • Repurpose your bridesmaids bouquets as centerpieces, decor in the ladies room or the bar area to add a punch of color. • Use a numbering system on your RSVP cards to track your guests list and to reduce over-purchasing of catering items. • Open your buffet early. No one likes “hangry” guests! • Keep your guests happy and be courteous of their time. Trust me, happy guests add the most value to your event. Why purchase all the food, beverage, and décor for an empty room? • Think about having a morning ceremony and reception (serving a brunch). Your guest will LOVE IT! • Always ask the venue what other events are being planned before and after your event. Lighting, staging or draping from previous events may allow you to potentially “share” the cost for the weekend. • Ask all your vendors for insight and tips. They are the experts and want your event to be successful as much as you do. • Instead of a formal sit-down dinner or standard buffet, opt for a watch-while-they-cook “action station”. This is fun for all ages. • Two words to remember – House Wine and House Beer – you will thank me later! • Choose crowd-pleasing classic cake flavors for your desserts. • How can we forget your entertainment for the evening? This will make or break your evening. • Lastly, hire a Day of Coordinator to keep you on task, on time and at peace with your wedding party and vendors. Please use caution when asking your friends and family members to handle all the details of your wedding day. It’s easy for them to get distracted visiting with your guests and forget about your timeline. Its difficult for someone outside the wedding industry to see the full scope of an event. Here are some photos of some of Holm’s favorite weddings!

Featured Wedding | Samantha + Adam

By tulsaweddingsociety_ytd3jh | April 21, 2017

We love it when one of our very own has a child tie the knot! Laura Talbot with Ms. Laura’s Cakes daughter did just this last month (March 11) at Okmulgee First Baptist Church. She was married by Pastor Tim Walker (pastor at Stillwater First Baptist Church), Samantha’s uncle and the pastor who also married Laura and her husband, Jimmy. The couple had dream team of TWS professionals to bring the day to life! The church gym transformed into a beautiful reception with the draping skills of Greg Sturg (Soft Touch draping) with roughly 263 feet of sheer linen as well as adding lighting from Integrity Lighting. Talbot remarked on some of the vendors she and her daughter chose for the wedding, “Rene Punch with Mom and Me Events provided day-of services for the wedding, which was one of my best decisions. While I know everything about cake and catering, I don’t know everything about conducting a wedding and getting everything pulled off. Rene was a Godsend in that area. I am in love with Mandy Miller’s (Divine Designs by Mandy) bouquets so I didn’t even have to think about who the florist would be. The lilac and white bouquets were gorgeous. I sent my daughter off the morning of the wedding to go get her hair and makeup done by Tulsa Bridal Beauty’s owner Krista Perry. (I wasn’t able to go with her because I was still prepping food for the reception). Her maids-of-honor went with her as well. When she got home she was beaming. I asked her if she was pleased with her hair and makeup and she said, ‘I feel like a princess’. Thats all I needed to hear.” Sometimes it can be difficult to walk the line between working an event and being a part of it. Talbot stated, “I set up her cake, got all the food delivered, and was done as ‘Ms. Laura’s Cakes’ by 2:00 pm; then I became mother-of-the-bride.” Job well done, Laura! Wedding Party Maid of Honor | Beverly (groom’s sister) Maid of Honor | Beverly (bride’s best friends since Kindergarten) Bridesmaid | Danielle (sister in law) Bridesmaid | Tabby (bride’s sister) Bridesmaid | Taylor (bride’s sister) Best Man | Tony (groom’s best friend) Groomsmen | Thomas (groom’s brother) Groomsmen | Mikey (groom’s nephew) Groomsmen | Luke (brother in law) Brittney Ashton with Brittney Ashton Photography documented the event. “Capturing Samantha and Adam’s wedding day was an honor. I have been friends with her mom almost as long as I have been shooting weddings. When Samantha was a senior in high school I shot her senior pictures. Now, 4 years later, I’m shooting her wedding. It was such a beautiful day and love was in the air. Of course the cake by Ms. Laura herself was phenomenal, she went above and beyond as always.” Congrats to Samantha and Adam from everyone here at TWS!

Featured Wedding | Sarah + Jack

By tulsaweddingsociety_ytd3jh | April 7, 2017

Sarah Webb came across Philbrook Museum of Art in a Google search while trying to find a city for her wedding that was halfway between her and her fiance, Jack Barker’s, families so that as many of their nearest and dearest could be present at their special day. They decided that it would be the perfect venue for their wedding and in early summer they set a date, booked Philbrook and Sarah and her mother, Jerri, made the trip up to Tulsa to meet with local vendors and plan the wedding. Sarah and Jack of Murphy, Texas were married on November 5th with a perfect background of the late fall colors in the presence of their closest friends and family. From the thoughtful touch of providing a fleece blanket for each guest, to the little flower girl almost stealing the show by standing up during toasts to recite the pledge of allegiance, Sarah and Jack’s wedding was full of joy and laughter as they were surrounded with love and good wishes from their family and friends.

Sarah Pendergraft on Vimeo. Cambria and Thomas have such a cute story. They were neighbors growing up and played together as kids… well, maybe… we think… possibly… but no one really knows. haha You see, Cambria had a boundary on their street and Thomas’ house was past that boundary. They remember becoming friends sometime around junior high, but no one is positive when they actually met. What they do know for certain is the way they started to feel about one another years ago, and they were both so excited to finally have their wedding day here.
