“All the bridesmaids wearing the identical, solid color dress is less common as couples opt for more personal wedding party attire,” says Lindsey Nickel, a wedding planner at Lovely Day Events. “Couples are really embracing making the wedding feel like their own wedding and personalizing as much as possible. This is one of my favorite wedding trends because it allows people to pick a dress that flatters their figure and that they would realistically wear again.”Read More

“One of my favorite cost-saving tips is to up-cycle items from previous weddings,” said Nickel. “Start browsing early on sites like Facebook Marketplace. Accent furniture, tabletop decor and cute details can quickly add up. Couples can check out local online communities to find on-trend deals near them on unique pieces for their wedding, such as a funky table for their escort cards, vintage chairs for a lounge or boho rugs for an aisle runner.”Read More

Being able to share a place that you both love with your friends and family will create extra meaning and a unique experience.Read More

Hi there! I'm Lindsey and I'm a wedding planner and wedding business coach living in Napa + Sonoma, CA. However, this is not how I got started as a wedding planner. It all started back in Jackson Hole, Wyom. I came to Jackson Hole right after college, like many people do, to be a ski bum and enjoy all the outdoor fun that Jackson Hole offers. One thing led to another and after ten years I really wasn't skiing that much, because I was running my nonprofit consulting business and my wedding planning business.Read More
