HOW TO HOST YOUR OWN GALENTINES PARTY

Even though this is primarily a wedding blog and we’re all about the love for your OH up in here, we still think there’s no love quite like that between you and your besties and It’s always nice to take the time to appreciate your gal pals right?! So with valentines just around the corner wouldn’t it be the cutest idea to throw a little Galentines party?! And actually, this theme doesn’t even have to be right by valentines day, it would also work for a pretty epic bridal shower, hen party or bachelorette right?! Cue the heart balloons, confetti canons and all the girl power!

SET THE TABLE
First up, we love the idea of setting the table with adorable heart themed accessories! We got some adorable pink heart plates from Postbox Party and popped heart lollipops and heart napkins around them. We decided that we wanted everything to either be pink or red just to really pack those girlie lovey vibes into everything! This included the flowers running down the centre of the table, and the lovely Beq from Beq’s Bouquets did not disappoint in supplying us with an abundance of gorgeous pink blooms! You’ll also spot our brand new chick flick quote stickers on all of the glasses on the tables, because wants a girlie evening without a little chick flick fun right?! You can grab the stickers here if you like and they include funny quotes from films like mean girls, legally blonde, clueless and more! We filled the drinks with pretty pink lemonade and added a splash of grenadine to create the ombre effect. If you want to be even more extra with your table then you can add a bunch of pink snacks too like pink wafers, pretty pink popcorn or cupcakes! We love these influential women cookies from Aww Sam!

THIS ECLECTIC DAY OF THE DEAD THEMED WEDDING IS PROOF THAT BUDGET WEDDINGS ARE THE BEST!

Matthew and Katherine were married in vacant lot in downtown Birmingham. Their nontraditional wedding ceremony reflected the couple’s energetic, colorful spirit. Their reception was held in their newly purchased home, perched atop Red Mountain, right underneath the Vulcan (the world’s largest cast iron statue!) and was the perfect way to christen their new lives together.

The wedding day was November 1, the day after Halloween and during Dia de los Muertos, meaning the wedding was rife with costumes and color. Katherine’s mom even walked her down the aisle dressed as Humphrey Bogart!
