For that Laidback, Lakeside, Sexy Summer Groom

Dana Bates Dana Bates 6 years ago
We love a man in a dashing black tuxedo. Who doesn't? But there's something to be said about that carefree summer groom who spends his wedding day by the water, cool and confident in a perfectly-styled, casual ensemble. We think that something to be said goes a little like this: S-E-X-Y. From Left to Right; Top To Bottom: 1. Instead of opting for a heavy material, this groom should go for J. Crew’ ...

We don’t want to be discussing old hat, but can we just say we’re obsessed with photo booths? Yeah, you’ve probably heard of the trend. Have a photo booth at your reception; take pictures in it with your family and friends, etc. etc.  But may we be so bold as to say, if you’re not entertaining the idea of having one at your wedding, you probably should be. Don’t understand the purpose of a photo b ...

Why Are People Throwing Rice at Me?

Dana Bates Dana Bates 6 years ago
Here at Saphire Event Group, we have mastered the art of event planning, not History 101.  Nevertheless, weddings are a thing of tradition, so we have to know at least a thing or two about the past. This week we’re wondering: Why do we throw rice at the bride and groom? With a little detective work we discovered the tradition began years ago in ancient Egypt as a means to express good luck to the ...

Behold, BHLDN

Dana Bates Dana Bates 6 years ago
If you love yourself a little bohemian-chic, then you’re obsessed with at least one sibling of the URBN family- Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, or Free People. Covering a wide age and finance span, URBN has become the go-to parent company for all things hip.
