Paine with ALL the Colors


Just in case it wasn’t obvious enough, us gals over here at EOAB are obsessed with color! Persian rose LOVE ultramarine LOVE lemon chiffon LOVE! And the pretty recent trend of “off-kilter” pairings has quickly become one of your most fun past times. Gone are the days of all pink and white or light blue weddings and are we ever grateful for that! We acknowledge that at the epitome of all our planning we are all just trying to create a day that expresses us as a couple. And showing your personalities through color is a really smart way to do that. There’s such true excitement in creating unexpected combinations like causally cool mint with blush or dressed up navy with a pop of orange. UGH love it! We challenge you to be brave, adventurous couples that use emerald in July and pair lavender with mustard! Here are a few of our favorite unexpected pairings. Let us know what yours are, we’re always looking for new inspiration

Cantalope and French Rose

Chocolate and vanilla



Neon

Bridesmaid Trends


Once upon a time bridal fashion only consisted of the bride and her dress. Don’t get us wrong it’s still very much about the bride and her dress but currently women have been considering the bridal party as a whole when thinking about style. Because we can all agree a girl can’t be on top if her sisters don’t hold her up. Amen to that!  Every season there’s a new refreshing take how to bring it all together from different styles of the same dress to different dress all together, here are a few of our faves

Bold Color

Love when brides have the courage to draw attention to their ladies in such a strong way. It shows she’s confident in the fact that all eyes will be on her regardless
 
Separates

This cool new mix allows you more options. Play with some color and texture maybe add a belt!
 
Different bouquets

This is truly thinking outside of the box and totally unexpected

Raquel & Chad ~ Modern Chic Wedding!

Came across this beautiful pictures and can't believe we never blogged them! A beautiful couple inside and out! So blessed to have shared this very special day with them and their families. Their ceremony took place in the garden of St. Thomas Catholic Church and the reception Palmetto Bay Village Center.  Their decor consisted of mostly whites with simple pops of purple for a very modern and chic look. 
Our favorite part of the evening had to be when Chad’s dad played a recording of Chad as a baby talking with his mom. The most cutest and sweetest thing we ever heard.  What a priceless moment!

Thank you Chad & Raquel for letting us be part of your day! We send you our most sincerest prayers and love for a blessed life! Xoxo

Thank you Elaine Palladino for sharing these amazing pics!!

From the Bride:
“Amidst my now-hubby being in medical school and me working full time and going to school full time as well, we got engagement and were planning our wedding…crazy right? I knew it was going to be busy and stressful but I still wanted to enjoy planning our wedding, so I knew we needed help. That help came in the form of the godsend knows as Events On A Budget- they were a complete life saver! We did the Wedding in a Box package and it worked out perfectly. With this package, you can name your budget, which aspects of the wedding you want included and which are more important to you (i.e. photographer, invitations, catering etc.) and they can recommend different tier vendors based on your wants/needs.  For me, this was crucial since I didn’t have time to research thousands of different vendors out there in South Florida. We told them what we wanted and they pretty much delivered it to us on a silver platter! Our big day went smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. They are very organized and reassuring but most importantly they truly care about their clients. Thank you, we couldn’t have done it without you! “

Summer Wedding Hairstyles: Red Carpet Inspired

We can all agree summer is possibly the best season of the year, there’s something about heat that just puts us all in a festive mood. Well us at least! No wonder people still want to get married this time of the year and brave the unpredictable weather, blistering heat, and test their setting spray to it’s limits, because when the weather holds up it’s truly a thing of beauty. If only it was acceptable to start the day off with our hair a mess and makeup down our face a la 1 am style. Whether you’re a spouse-to-be, bridesmaid, Pinterest-addicted aspiring bride or wedding crasher this season here are some celeb inspired beauty looks. While their bikini bodies might unrealistic to acquire, at best, their fashion and beauty looks are a bit easier to mirror.




For a twist on a classic top knot add a sparkly broach to a loose and textured top knot. The contrast produces a more effortless and spontaneous feel


A ponytail is the simplest way to style the hair, making this flawless for a no-fuss bride who still wants to look chic and polished


This combination of a braid in front and twists in the back make for an intentionally unkempt style that feels more casual



This has a retro'40s style, but with a modern 'twist, literally! The side twists, low bun and backwards headband create an angelic effect

Debra & Nick ~ Spanish Romance!

What a wonderful wedding to blog about, not only because of the beautiful decor and photos but also because of the amazing couple we got to work with! 
They chose Spanish Monastery to host their reception and nearby St. Mary Magdalen for their catholic ceremony. Such a lovely couple with ginormous hearts for each other, their families and everyone they come in contact with. How blessed were we to help plan their wedding?!?! 

The day could not have been more perfect!  Their decor was classic elegance with crystal chandeliers, ivory linens and gold chivari chairs for a sophisticated and regal look. 
Our favorite part of the evening had to be the dancing. Everyone had a blast and we so enjoyed every second of their magical night! 

Thank you both so much for being such wonderful people to work with and giving us the honor of sharing your day!  May God Bless your union for always!!

From the Bride" My husband and I were so happy with the service we got from Events On A Budget. Events on A Budget has relationships with all of their vendors therefore you get great service at an amazing price.  They helped with the planning process the whole way through and responded in a timely manner to all of our emails. We would have never thought of all the things they did or come up with a timeline without their help. They were amazing the day of too.  We highly recommend Events On A Budget for your wedding planning and highly recommend their wedding in a box package."
