Tori & Jack

Our experience with I&B bride Tori was an absolute dream. We love being a part of that magical moment where a bride finds her dream dress, and we couldn't help but to fall in love again when we received these pictures. How amazing does Tori look in her Candi gown by Blush by Hayley Paige? We love that she chose to add a touch of southern charm by including the optional lace overlay!

Tips and Tricks: Advice from I&B for Planning Your Dream Wedding!

Here at Ivory & Beau, we love the hustle and bustle of wedding planning. There’s just a certain kind of thrill to be found in checking every box, calling every vendor, and ordering every piece of decor! The best feeling in the whole wide world has got to be when we finally get the chance to take a step back and look at how everything’s fallen perfectly into place.

This week, we’ve got a few tips to help your wedding planning experience go smoothly so you can get a taste of what that special moment is like! 

1. Set a budget -- and stick to it. 

This can definitely prove to be a challenge, given the breadth of options available to you, but we can always help you to find a compromise that doesn’t break the bank. Trust us, you and your wallet will be so much happier for it. 

2. Hire a planner.

Wedding planning is our area of expertise, after all! Wedding planners often have devised a system that helps the process to move along smoothly--not to mention efficiently. We’ve planned so many weddings that we’ve got it down to an exact science. From venues and caterers to decor and timelines, your wedding planner will keep you on track and on budget while keeping your vision at the forefront of the process!

3. Stop looking at Pinterest once you’ve found a theme. 

Pinterest is a great resource for finding inspiration, but it’s no exception to the concept of “too much of a good thing.” Don’t overwhelm yourself with massive pinterest boards. Instead, pick a few select images to for you and your wedding planner to review as you design the perfect look for your big day--you’ll thank yourself later!

4. Stay organized.

Any good wedding planner will tell you that in order to master the art of planning a wedding, you have to stay organized. Create checklists or timelines, buy an agenda dedicated to your wedding, write yourself sticky notes--whatever you’ve got to do in order to stay on top of things. 

ivory-and-beau-bridal-boutique-savannah-wedding-dress-savannah-wedding-gown-savannah-bridal-boutique-savannah-bridal-shop-savannah-wedding-planner-savannah-wedding-coordinator-aptb-photography-5.jpg

5. Ask questions.

Make sure, make doubly sure, make triply sure. Our mascot may be a dinosaur, but we promise we don’t bite. If you aren’t certain about something, your wedding planner is always available to answer questions--or find the answer for you! Read advice blogs and don’t be afraid to speak to any family or friends who have planned weddings. They’re sure to give you sage advice tailored to your needs! 

6. Take it one step at a time. 

Remember: baby steps are still progress. Start early and start slow. Figure out a list of things that need to be done and organize them chronologically. Following your method of organization from the start will keep you from steering off track and getting behind and will help to minimize stress. Don’t try to do everything at once! That’s what we’re here for. Speaking of...

7. You are NOT alone! 

Nobody understands better than the I&B team that wedding planning can be a stressful process for all parties, no matter the joys it may bring, so find a support system. Lean on friends and family whenever you’re starting to feel overwhelmed, and don’t forget that your wedding planner will always be available to address any concerns and soothe any worries. We’re all in this together!

8. Go with the flow.

It isn’t worth it to stress over minor glitches! It’s perfectly fine to be a perfectionist, but nobody wants to tear all of their hair out before the big day. We find that couples always turn out the happiest when they’re willing to be a little flexible in their vision.

Hot Happenin's: The Knot Savannah Workshop

I’m dreaming of donuts… of a donut wall… oh, or maybe I’m just remembering how absolutely epic the donut wall--yep, you heard that right a WHOLE WALL of donuts by Baker’s Pride--was at the Knot’s most recent workshop, hosted right here in Savannah at the The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. You might have spotted the deliciousness on our Insta-story (which, by the way, you’re totally missing out on all of our epic shop shenanigans if you don’t follow us at @ivoryandbeau on Instagram)!

The Knot’s Savannah Workshop featured a few of our favorite vendors, as well as some of our favorite designers (Kendra Scott included). We’re definitely counting down to the next time the Knot comes to town, but in the meantime, here are some of our favorite memories from the event!

Meet Rory: a name meaning "red king," which while doesn't do this dress justice I could see how this dress is flaming hot fit for a queen. With a similar silhouette to Lincoln, this dress brings that Southern flair in replacing glam beads for a gorgeous lacy top. Happy moms with that gorgeous ballgown, happy brides with a touch of sexy fabulousness like only the queen Hayley Paige does.

Meet Daria: while the name might bring up memories of that old MTV cartoon in the 90s... the Daria gown brings up images of an ethereal bride floating on clouds on a sunny day in Georgia. With a sweet beaded embellishment over nude lining the dress is a touch sexy while still giving the bride that dreamy-floating-on-air sort of look.

Meet Reece: more yummy than a peanut butter cup. This gown features the same Marrakesh beading as West, Delta & Dakota but with the sexiest most glam look for the girl who wants to wow and make the most ultimate statement. Sexy up top, fun on the bottom and just so much fabulousness for the girl who can't be tamed.

Meet Smith: not to be confused with the TBS reality show featuring NBA on TNT analyst Kenny Smith, The Price is Right model Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith and their 5 children... Okay I have no clue what that is but Wikipedia is a fountain of knowledge and this dress is a fountain of gorgeousness. For the daring bride who can rock a trendy neckline with gorgeous and airy layered organza skirt for the touch of romance every Southern girl needs.

Meet Dayton: the sister to the Halo gown delivers a punch harder than Rocky. This gown is Halo but with a sexier bodice that doesn't disappoint. For the girl who loved Halo but wanted to rock strapless like a dreamboat. HP trademark horsehair skirt flows like a soft rippling wave on a warm summer day.

Still not convinced.... maybe this video will entice you!? Because who doesn't want to rock a #sparklesquad robe on Christmas while opening presents... or maybe you're one of those wrap-up-a-present for yourself kind of girls!? Just saying... there's no shame here, we don't judge.

Meet Giamba: despite having a name reminiscent of a Salsa song, this gown is far from having Spanish flair but instead is simply perfect for a romantic wedding in a garden filled with butterflies, happy bees and hummingbirds. The unique floral lace is adorned with a skirt filled with cascading godets that add a touch of volume without overdoing it.

Meet Bandit: like a feisty bandit in the wild west last but not least, this gown is one of my personal favorites from the collection. A combination of bohemian wonder mixed with a modern style that is as a fiery and wild as the name given to it. With a daring back that will make people stop and take a second glance at the nude peekaboo, this gown makes a statement like none other.
