Proof that all your friends and family came TO CELEBRATE!
There are so many little details when it comes to wedding planning that by the end of it you may be making choices just to make the problem go away. But keep in mind that these little details really do make all the difference when everything comes together on the big day. You'll be so ahppy the you made mindful choices that really represent you and your loved one. One of those little (major) details is the guest book. The guest book is a key detail because everyone who attends the wedding will see it & (hopefully) sign it. Here are a few tips to picking out the perfect guest book.
1. Representation: This day is all about you and your loved one becoming ONE unit. So what is something that the two of you love to do? Do you love to travel together? Use a globe. Do you love to ski together? Use a set of skis. Do you love to drink wine together? Collect corks and have people sign them. There are so many possibilities, but keep in mind that it is best when it is about you.
2. Aesthetic: You can choose something based of the theme of your wedding. Is your wedding more black-tie? Stick to a classic alternative of a beautiful bound book that will shimmer in the night. Think about the rest of your decor and see how your guest book can compliment it.
3. Keepsake: Your guest book is a keepsake that you and your partner now get to keep forever til death do you part. Want to hear a great tip? Pick something you like! Pick something you treasure and want to keep displayed around your home, not just a memento that you are going to put in a box and forget about. A framed picture for people to sign is a great decor piece that you can add to any part of your home.
4. Find inspiration: Still struggling to find "the one" for your wedding. Turn to others for inspiration. Ask your friends and family members what they used when they got married, or take a peek at the guest book of any weddings you may attend in the near future. Inspiration may strike at any moment! And then there is always the internet which is packed with some of the most creative ideas known to man. So grab a cup of Joe and surf the web a bit looking at wedding blogs, Pinterest, and wedding inspiration pages.

What do wedding planners do? Why do they cost so much?
Wedding planners are some of the hardest working people in the world! A wedding planner's wedding day starts at the moment the clients open their eyes, and finishes long after they leave the wedding! Our pedometers often read 15 or more miles, walking around the venue, moving from ceremony site to ready rooms, to reception site, back around again, making sure all of the people working to make the event go smoothly have all the info they need to be successful. But it doesn't start or end there! You should expect to spend $1500-2500 on a month-of coordinator, nation wide. For a full wedding planner, you can expect to spend TYPICALLY 10% of your budget... Usually $6000-10,000 plus, depending on your event and its needs!
Is it Scale-able?
An average wedding in Colorado is about $31,000, according to The Knot. Weddings that have a wedding planner are typically $40,000+. Sweetly Paired's average wedding for our full planning clients is about $60-70k. Our Day of clients range from about $30k, to 50k, typically. When the budget is higher than that, you need someone for more help than a day-of typically gives.

Nothing says winter like snow in vail colorado for a gorgeous wedding!
Here at Sweetly Paired - Colorado Wedding Planner - We ADORE winter weddings. There's something romantic about the snow and a warm fire in the mountains for a wedding! Cody and Shaye came up from the deep south to have their destination wedding here in Vail, Colorado. They had gorgeous whites, and rich reds. The red flowers stood out against the background of snow like a warm fire on a cold day! The venue was the lovely Sonnenalp hotel in Vail. The bride and groom got to sit by the fire and have a fabulous German-inspired meal prepared by Ludwig's restaurant in Vail.

This lovely wedding at Deer Creek Valley Ranch was shot by Jennie Crate with Green Blossom Photography! The soft pastel flowers and delicious details made this one a beauty! The gorgeous bride doesn't hurt either! The lovely florals are by one of Denver's best wedding florists, Bella Calla! Love the succulent boutonnieres, the pastel peonies, and the soft lovely ranunculus in the wedding bouquet an the boutonnieres... so lovely!
